Glenn's clear message to U.S. soldiers: 'You might serve man, but you answer to God'

With the recent news of U.S. soldiers being told to ignore the abuse of boys by Afghan allies, Glenn took to radio Tuesday with a strong message to members of the U.S. military currently dealing with similar situations.

"If we don't have our decency and our honor, we have nothing," Glenn said. "You think we're on God's side when we listen to His children being abused in the next tent and we're told stand down and do nothing? We're not on God's side. God cannot protect us. Millstone around the neck comes to mind."

He went on, urging members of the military not to listen to those who tell them such pedophilic acts are just a part of their culture.

"If that's true, their culture needs to be destroyed, period," Glenn said.

GLENN: Before he was fatally shot in 2012, Lance Corporal Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father that at night he could hear the Afghan officers sexually abusing 12-year-old boys, but there was nothing he could do about it. Quote, at night we could hear them screaming, dad. We're not allowed to do anything about it. My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because, quote, it's their culture.

According to the New York Times, rampant sexual abuse of children by Afghani officers, otherwise known as bocce bozy (phonetic), or boy play, isn't new. While some US soldiers and marines have specifically been told not to intervene, they have chosen to do so anyway in the face of potential disciplinary action. I want every soldier within the sound of my voice, I want you to listen to me carefully. You answer to God. You might serve man, but you answer to God. And there is no way that you hear this stuff going on, you know abuse of a child is going on -- that is not their culture. And if it is, their culture is evil.

Do not listen to these people who tell you that, "Oh, well, it's just -- all cultures are alike, and their culture is no better than our culture." Yes, it is. Our culture is far superior to any culture that allows men to go and sexually abuse girls or boys, period.

What the hell is wrong with us?

If it means that they court-martial you, let them do it. You will wear it as a badge of honor. You will change the course of our country. Look, I understand, here's one of the worst things that is -- that has happened to our -- to our military. In the last eight years, our military has cut all of the good guys up at the top and is putting all kinds of bad guys at the top and you're doing all kinds of things -- for instance, you're being told that it's okay to abandon a fellow soldier, to abandon people in the middle of a firefight. And you know that's not right. We don't do that. We don't do that with Bergdahl, but we let the guys in Benghazi die.

Now, what's going to happen? The next president is going to come in, and all these guys who have been a part of this culture, that have abandoned people on the battlefield, who have told you to look the other way, that you don't to have worry about what's going on, that's just their culture. You look the other way and don't you dare say anything. All of those people, the next president of the United States needs to come in and fire every single person in the Pentagon that had anything to do with it or was anywhere near it and didn't ring a bell.

I'm telling you that some day, and I hope sooner rather than later, some day this will end. Evil always thinks it's going to win forever. It doesn't last. And you better be on the right side. When they come looking for your name and they're saying, "Well, you were standing around, you didn't do anything about it," you need to be able to say, "Yes, I did. Yes, I did. And here's exactly what I did." And don't you worry about -- I would hire somebody in a heartbeat. You were dishonorably discharged from the military? Why were you dishonorably discharged, "Because, sir, I was told to remain silent while men were abusing young children sexually at night, I couldn't do it." You would have a job with me. More importantly, you'll have your soul at the end.

I'm convinced, as I said yesterday, I think this is one of the reasons why our men and women are killing themselves in record numbers. You cannot tell people to go over -- remember I said -- remember, Stu, when we did rally for America.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I said, "We have to make a promise to ourself that we will not call them baby killers. We will not spit on them. We will not treat them -- we will not be like the generation of the 1960s that treated them like garbage."

STU: Yeah, people called it a pro-war rally, but it was about that, not about war.

GLENN: It was about honor. If we've decided -- I said over and over again in the speech, now is the time to speak out. What I'm telling you is, once the decision is decided -- and if we decide to go to war, you cannot take it out on the soldiers. We must not treat them the way we've treated other soldiers in the past. And that's from the beginning with George Washington. We didn't pay them. We treated them like crap. They just beat the greatest army on the face of the earth, the greatest navy, military force, on the face of the earth, and we didn't pay them. We didn't treat them well. We didn't help them in the end. This is nothing new to the United States of America.

But what is new is the rate of suicide of our troops. And here's why, I believe -- I don't know and please forgive me if you have served and you're like, "Oh, this guy does not know what he's talking about." As a casual civilian observer, what I believe is happening is, you just served in a war that no longer makes sense. You were asked to do things -- look, it's one thing to be asked to go and firebomb Dresden. Now, how many people had nightmares after that of all the people that they killed? But at least you could justify it in your own head. At least you knew who you were fighting against. At least you knew who you were fighting for. Can I ask you seriously what are we fighting for? And who are we fighting against? What are we fighting for if we won't stand up for the most vulnerable, the 12-year-old boys that are being raped by our Afghani soldiers that are standing by us during the middle of the day. How do you sleep at night after hearing those screams?

We'll help you expose this if you have witnessed this, if you have seen this. We will stand by you like nobody's business. And I believe America will stand by you. If they dishonorably discharge you for this, America should go nuts. And if it doesn't, we're done anyway. There's nothing left if we don't stand for this.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.

These days, it seems like everything is about politics, and comedy has been one of the biggest targets. Many comedians are walking on eggshells, but stand-up comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jim Breuer isn't one of them.

Breuer joined Glenn on the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about why he’d rather be funny than fearful and what inspired his hilarious comedy special, “Somebody Had to Say It," which has garnered almost 1.5 million views as of this writing.

Breuer made it clear that he does not consider himself to be political. "I'm not. I'm 100% not [political]," he told Glenn, before explaining how people started calling him political when he dared to ask questions about a certain shot that we're not allowed to mention, let alone question.

"When did medicine become political?" Breuer asked.

"What kind of price have you paid for being called political?" Glenn asked Breuer.

"To be dead honest with you, once COVID really kicked in, and ... once you realize we're not going to be here, that we're on borrowed time, and I do have God in my life ... you come to terms with reality on a deeper level. And when COVID kicked in, I said, 'You know what? All bets are off.' I already knew I wasn't in control. But now, not only am I not in control from the natural order of life, but now the puppet masters ... are in control," Breuer answered.

"It made me realize I don't have time to worry about what people think of me. I know where I'm at in life. I know where I'm at spiritually. I know where I'm at with my family," he added.

"That's tremendous power," Glenn said. "But it spooks the hell out of people."

"But it shouldn't!" Breuer exclaimed. "I'm excited that other people get this ... but they're stuck. We ain't got time for stuck. To me, this is the time of, 'You gotta rise.' For years and years and years, you allow fear to control your life. Fear of dying. Fear I might get sick ... everything's based out of fear. It's time for the fearless."

Breuer also revealed his secret for dealing with tough times, and he’s seen his share. But he also said he's seen miracles, including the incredible (and hilariously told) story of how he found faith, how God saved his marriage, and why one family friend was convinced his wife belonged to a cult.
