STUDY: Majority of Middle Eastern Muslims think sharia law is a good thing

The progressive left defies logic when it comes to recognizing the threat posed by sharia law. They're ready to throw out the welcome mat to Muslim refugees who have grown up in a culture dominated by barbaric laws that treat women as chattel and gay men as rooftop offerings. Just as the concepts of liberty and freedom are sewn into the fabric of an American upbringing, so, too, are the concepts of sharia woven into a Middle Eastern or Islamic upbringing.

Glenn and Stu shared some stunning stats on how sharia law is perceived and accepted in Muslim-dominated countries.

"You have to understand . . . these Muslims are coming from a part of the Middle East where they've grown up, understanding that sharia law is a good thing," said Glenn. "So when they come here, they still want sharia law."

Take Irving, Texas, for example, where recently a Muslim tribunal tried to establish sharia law as above and separate from U.S. law.

"No, you don't do that," Glenn said. "You don't have separate laws. You have the Texas state law and the United States law. You don't also have sharia law. Period."

This is why understanding the viewpoint of people overseas --- people Obama and other progressives want to bring to the U.S. as refugees -- is critical to understanding the impact it could have on America.

"Remember when we sat with this imam from here in Texas?" Glenn asked. "He was like, 'Look, everybody understands that if you steal, you cut off somebody's hands.' And we just let him talk. Because he's from a culture that understands, that's just what you do. Well, that's not what we do here."

Glenn went on to explain that's why we cannot bring these people into the United States of America. Unless they're truly coming here to escape and see America as a great land of promise and opportunity, they cannot be allowed to enter.

"If they're coming here and they're like, 'Look, I think America is part of the problem in my country. I don't think ISIS is that bad of a deal. If somebody steals, we should cut their hands off. If my wife commits adultery, I should be able to stone her to death or kill. If the imam says I can do it, I'm going to do it.' You don't bring those people into our country," Glenn said. "Period."

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
