The story of this woman's miracle in Charleston already has over 53,000 Facebook likes

When the shooting in Charleston happened, Glenn said that the evil actions would lead to good. Americans from all over the world came together in support of the community shattered by the shooter, and small miracles started to happen. Kayla Hall witnessed one such miracle as she drove to meet Glenn and others who were gathering in South Carolina. What did she see?

Glenn: I want to share something that I read on Facebook. Actually, I want to bring the woman in that wrote it. Kayla Robinson Hall is with us. She wrote something on Facebook. I reposted it, and now it’s over 53,000 likes and has been passed on I don’t know how many times. She was on her way to march with us on Friday, and an amazing moment happened at a gas station. Kayla joins me now. Hi, Kayla.

Kayla: Hi, Glenn. How are you?

Glenn: Very good. I know that you did make it to the rally.

Kayla: I did.

Glenn: Good. And you brought your three boys.

Kayla: Yes, sir, I did.

Glenn: And how old are they?

Kayla: I have a nine-year-old, a seven, and a six.

Glenn: Okay. Why did you come?

Kayla: I love this community, but I was actually struggling if I should come or not. It just kind of gave me some anxiety thinking about taking my boys. My husband was out of town. The morning after the shooting, my nine-year-old came in my room. He had turned the TV on before I knew what he was doing. He was concerned and said, “Mom, this happened at a church. Why? And could it happen at our church?” I kind of took a minute before I reacted, and I thought I need to take him down there so he’s not scared so that he can feel how good people can be and how united we can be even when things are very scary.

Glenn: So, you’re on your way, and you stop at a gas station. Tell me what happened.

Kayla: Okay, so before I left, I prayed that everything would be okay, we’d be safe, and that I could reach out some small way. While I was pumping gas, I was looking around me. It was almost like the day after 9/11 when you just wanted to hug everybody you saw. I went into the gas station, and I kept trying to make eye contact with people. It just wasn’t happening.

I went out. I was done pumping my gas, and I just hear this gentleman yell, “Young lady.” I turned around, and without even a thought of his age, his race, the hat he was wearing, I just ran to him, and I started to try and push his car. He was pushing it from the highway. I said let me help you. He refused and said no, ma’am, no, ma’am. I said I can push it. I’m strong. I want to help. He just said I might have one eye and one leg, which was evident, but I can push this car. I just need you to move your car.

Glenn: So, hang on, I think you just got a commercial on your laptop. He said I have one arm or I mean I have one leg and one eye. He lost that in Desert Storm, right?

Kayla: Yes, sir. I asked him, I said, “How did you lose your eye and your leg?” And he said, “Serving my country in Desert Storm.”

Glenn: He was on his way to the same thing?

Kayla: Right. I wasn’t clear if he was going down to pass out waters at the church or pray. He said I’m on my way downtown to go to the Mother Emanuel AME Church. I said so am I, and we both just hugged. We just hugged. He said I just need $6.00 to get downtown. I said I really want you to get back home from downtown. I don’t just want you to get downtown. I ran and got my wallet, and as I’m pumping, I get to six, and he says that’s good. I just waved him off, and I said I know how much it costs to get downtown, and I want you to get back.

So, I kept going. Then we hugged again, and I asked him, “Can I take a picture with you? I want to never forget your face.” And he said yes, ma’am, and so we took a picture together. I sat in the car, and I just posted it because there was so much negativity outside and sadness, and I thought if I can post this, maybe people will realize that we love each other and we want to help.

Glenn: So, Kayla, I said on what, Thursday, that a miracle was going to happen there. Do you think you found yours?

Kayla: Absolutely. I’ve had an overwhelming response. But even at the church—I was walking right behind you, by the way—even at the church, I took a step back with my three boys, and we just kind of hugged each other. I said a little prayer in our own circle and asked them to really think about the people that had passed away and what they were doing. They weren’t in the wrong place. They weren’t doing the wrong thing, and evil came. But look what was happening. I had them look everywhere. And then somebody mentioned please meet a stranger next to you, and some men came over to us. He kind of had some African garb on, and my little one said, “Where are you from?” He said, “I’m from here in Charleston.” My little one just went and hugged him. It was just a really special moment for my boys and me.

Glenn : Kayla, I hope that I can meet you, and maybe you’ll join us in Birmingham, Alabama the end of the summer because it’s going to be a special time too. I’d love to meet you in person, and I want to thank you so much for sharing it. I saw it on Father’s Day, and it made my Father’s Day. Thank you.

Kayla: Thank you, Glenn, for inviting the community to come together in one spot. It was a blessing.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
