Why would Glenn pay $10,000 for an old magazine?

On radio Wednesday, Glenn told listeners about a very rare piece of World War II history. Despite hundreds of thousands of copies being printed originally, this 30-page German magazine known simply as KZ is extremely hard to find today. The reason there are so few left is chillingly similar to why people are ignoring the atrocities of our day.

Glenn explained how Eisenhower, when he first came into one of the concentration camps, said the German people have to see their crimes. So, Eisenhower commissioned the printing of the KZ magazine, distributing it to every single home in every town there was a concentration camp.

Thumbing through some of the pages, Glenn showed how the magazine contains nothing but pictures of what happened in the concentration camps.

"The reason why this is so expensive is because almost all of them unopened went into the fire," Glenn said. "There was a knock on the door. An American soldier came. 'This is for your family. Read it.' They closed the door. The mother or father took it and said, 'I don't want to see this.' And threw it in the fire before their children could see it."

Then, Glenn asked a poignant question, bringing new meaning to the historical artifact.

"What is the difference between the German people and those of us who are alive today here in America with the slaughterhouses that are Planned Parenthood?" Glenn said.

GLENN: This is a very, very rare piece of American military information. It's just called KZ. We printed hundreds of thousands of these. But they're extraordinarily rare. Because they were given to the people in Germany in each of the concentration camp towns. And all it is, if you open it up, it's a magazine. It's about, I don't know, 30 pages. And all that's inside are the pictures of what happened in the concentration camps in their town. This is something that Eisenhower said, when he first came into one of the concentration camps, he said, the German people have to see their crimes. They have to see it, and they have to look at it.

What they did is, they made the German people come in and first take a tour. Before they cleaned anything up, they went to the town, and they said, come see. And I've seen the video. If you watch the new documentary that's out on HBO. Came out in the last six months.

It was made by Alfred Hitchcock. And it's -- it's pretty stark. And they were told when they were making this, the cameramen were told, do not stop the film. Make sure that there's no edit in the whole real of your camera. Run it the full eight minutes. Because people will not -- they'll say that it was edited. Does this sound familiar, Planned Parenthood? They'll say that it was edited. So make sure that there's no edits in that.

Also, put famous people in. If there is a famous general, a famous soldier, a mayor of the town, make sure he's in there so people can identify that person and say, well, I know that person. And that person was standing there, so this isn't some sort of a stage. They knew the denial would run so deep.

Then Eisenhower said, print these. They went to every single home in every town there was a concentration camp. The reason why -- I believe I may have paid $10,000 for this. The reason why this is so expensive is because almost all of them unopened went into the fire. There was a knock on the door. American soldier came. This is for your family. Read it.

They closed the door. The mother or father took it and said, I don't want to see this. And threw it in the fire before their children could see it.

May I ask what the difference is between us? What is the difference between the German people and those of us who are alive today here in America with the slaughterhouses that are Planned Parenthood?

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
