Why the hate? Glenn responds to negative reaction on ‘Army of Compassion’

On [Tuesday's] TV show, I spoke about an army of compassion. To wake our churches. That, if we don't care about those in Palmyra Syria, instead we only care about the artifacts, not the 70,000 now on the run from Isis we are indeed lost as a country.

I spoke of those who say the root special on the Christian holocaust and how some started funding men who are going over and training the Christians to fight back because they are not receiving US help. We are only training Muslims who are with Isis and against Assad.

I spoke of hatred and rage and how the seeds of anger and revenge are spreading here in America to the streets of Baltimore and St Louis.

God is not dead, our churches are. Our pulpits will not stand for right over wrong. The Gospel is an Applied Science!

Wake, Serve, Stand.

Look at the responses on theblaze.com.

I need your help. Our work begins Monday. It is hard work and we will be called many names. But compassion is what we now lack as a nation.

For those who are being slaughtered, Christian, atheist, those not Muslim enough, straight and Gay.

We each have a roll to play. People feel powerless. You are not. Our pulpits are silent on far too many things.

The only way to win is to follow and live the teachings of Christ. It worked for Mandella, King and Gandhi.

It also changed the world when those 12 men who were left behind actually lived it and risked death by speaking out.

Nazi Germany wasn’t defeated by providing comfort to its victims.

Why should I fight for — or show compassion to — people who are being slaughtered, who would just as soon kill me if I were standing face to face with them and disagreeing with their religion?

They can fight their own fights, or lay down and die. Either way, I do not care…for there is no such thing as a moderate muslim.

To those who believe embracing ISIS as brethren is still possible.

If God saw contrition in the heart of Islam now they would cease subjugation by the sword, fall down and renounce their Jihad.

Do you see evidence of this?

You have only two cheeks. Read my opinion on resistance to martyrdom by the sword of radical Islam.

A few paragraphs of sanity.

George Washington quietly sought counsel with the Lord prior to every military engagement during the American war for freedom against tyranny.

Now see Christian perspective with empathy and judicious patience which results in a just consensus of faith into action.

Why did the Jewish men (the “Capos”) kill the Jewish men, women, and children (2500 at a time) while only being supervised by “1 or 2” Germans tzion?

This doesn’t make sense to me and I know you’re an expert on this particular subject. Thank you in advance for your answer.

Glen, you head on over there and set up shop. Invite ISIS to come in and get some compassion. Then, if you’re not beheaded, we may follow.

Wait, I forgot to mention the compassion we showed to end WW-2. Oh, one thing comes to mind… Two nukes dropped on japan. And before that, obliterating Berlin. Yeah, that is what I call tough love. But it brought peace. Lesson learned?

Dear glen. We aren’t the problem. If the crusaders of old took on your strategy, we would all be lowly subhuman moose. Slime

God’s grace and the conqueror compassion comes after and with the defeat of the evil…In this case the Sons of Satan Islam…And again had we done what needed to be done….Still needs to be done…The companions to defeated would have long happened. And those children today taken by the sons of satan would have never be looking to endure the brutality they will face. Glenn sometimes the good lord gives great power for a reason. Not using it and a people truing away from their roll of using it. Is a slap in gods face. See the day comes and this great power is taken away from us. What companion is left. Out right destroy all and any who want to die for this Satan evil of Islam and to the surrendered give the grace of a conqueror.

I wonder whatever happened to Mr. Beck’s meeting with his $$ men. Wasn’t he going to personally begin saving people like Schindler? Wasn’t he trying to like himself to Jesus, MLK and Gandhi just a short time ago?

After many years of beating down the libertarian candidate (2008-2012) because he was too ‘soft’ on middle east, Beck finally admits defeat and adopts the truth that govt military force cannot change people’s hearts……Or at least Beck admits it today, might change his mind tomorrow.

 

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

David McNew / Staff | Getty Images

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series. Here you can find a wide selection of books free from Amazon's filters. Be sure to sign up for Glenn's newsletter to find out about new additions to "Glenn's Bookshelf" every week.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president.

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
