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.

Listen to the full segment below.

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.

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
