Glenn: Darkness tried (and failed) to destroy my family

Glenn shared the below message on his Facebook page this past Sunday.

Father's Day. I have much churning inside of today.

My father and I were strangers for most of my life, but in the late 90's we really tried. We were best friends for about five years.

Then after a family incident I found out that he was not the man I thought he was. In fact he was the opposite.

7 years ago or so, I was crushed. My entire world turned upside down and inside out. Everything I thought I could trust and was real was gone.

I guess I knew it was coming in some way.

I had heard the whispers of darkness.

"I will destroy your family."

We have had a very tough 10 years.

Darkness tried, ripping my children from the path and from me, it tried turning my little ones, it tried accusing me of being a poor father and it tried to fill me with despair that we wouldn't make it.

The only thing that succeeded was ripping my father out of our arms.

But the family stood. We held on to each other and the truth.

My sisters and brother are closer to each other and me than ever before.

But, I lost my father and all that he taught was almost destroyed in the process.

Someday, maybe this week, maybe next year, I will share what I learned because the darkness is whispering its lies to all of us.

I praise God that I am not lost! The Lord loves us and guides us. God IS my Father, the author of all that I am. And so to him,

"I thank you Father in Heaven for all of the good and the bad. The wisdom to know the difference between the two and the strength to choose you and your path.

I thank you, Father for allowing me to be born at this time, for your redeeming power that causes me to stand when I see.

I thank you for my children, amazing wife , her parents and yes, my parents. I thank you for an earthly father who tried. I ask you to forgive him for his faults as I ask you to forgive me for being so blind to his pain and struggles for so long.

The only gift I can give to you, Father, is a promise that I will try to be better, that I will search for your words in your text and in the text of my life.

The training wheels are off but I am still a bit wobbly. I will fail and fall at times but I know that you will always be running just behind me saying, "I've got you, I've got you!"

"Thank you for my life".

Happy Father's Day.

That goes to George too.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
