Powerful ad shows how our choices affect kids

Think you're kids aren't watching when you play Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty? Think they don't notice the swearing and violence? Think again.

Glenn played on radio today a powerful ad that highlights how the choices we make and the things we expose our children to --- even when we think they're not paying attention --- have an impact.

Listen to the audio or read the transcript below.

GLENN:  Hmm.  Welcome to the program.  We heard this ad and I just want to play this for you.  Because I think this is one of the most powerful ads I've ever heard.  And it's really less about the games than it is about parents and kids and what you're doing and what example you're setting for your kids.  Listen to this.

VOICE:  I'm so glad my dad used the Ashley Madison app.  Now instead of being there for my birthday, he just calls.

VOICE:  My mommy uses a sexting app.  She likes to set a good example.

VOICE:  It's amazing!  I'm so psyched when my daddy plays Grand Theft Auto.  Now I know all the bad words.

VOICE:  Bad words are the best words.

VOICE:  Mommy, what does --

VOICE:  My mommy loves first person shooters.

VOICE:  Die, die, die.  Pew, pew, pew.

VOICE:  Games we play, don't really matter.  Do they?

VOICE:  Do they?

VOICE:  Do they?

VOICE:  By shining light in this darkness.

GLENN:  I don't know anything about the company.  What's the company called?

PAT:  Clean Light Games.  Something like that.

GLENN:  Yeah.  Play.  That's good.  That's good.  Neither of us wrote it down.  We just thought that was a great ad.

PAT:  Yeah.  Yeah.

GLENN:  And took the audio from it.  I guess the slogan is play in the light.  It's like Clean Light Games or something like that.  I don't know if it's any good.  But really effective ad.

STU:  I heard that one quote that I've heard Jeffy repeat many times:  Bad words are the best words.

GLENN:  Yes.  I just thought the opening line -- play just the opening again.  I think this is so powerful.

VOICE:  I'm so glad my dad used the Ashley Madison app.

PAT:  I'm so glad my dad used an Ashley Madison app.  Now instead of being at my birthday, he calls me for my birthday.

GLENN:  That's amazing.  That's amazing.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
