Silence in the Face of Evil Is Evil Itself

Hello, America, from Las Vegas, Nevada.

I got up this morning, and I prayed about what I was going to say to you today. Because I have a lot on my mind. And I thought to myself, "Maybe I, maybe I don't say anything."

You know, it's really interesting. I've had an interesting 15 years. And for the life of me, I can't figure it out. I know my talent didn't get me here. I am quite possibly the worst talk show host on radio. My talent didn't get me here. My talent got me to where I was in the 1990s, and that was pretty much nowhere.

But I was on the air in WABC in New York. So the first talk show broadcast I ever did. Clinton had just bombed the aspirin factory, and Stu was my producer at the time. And I had spent the day reading the words of Osama Bin Laden because that was the target, according to Clinton. That was the target of that aspirin factory. Because he said, "Osama Bin Laden is a very dangerous man." And I didn't trust Clinton at all. And so I looked up this Osama bin Laden. I couldn't even pronounce his name. You know me with names.

I think I called him "Bean La Dean." I don't know how I even said it. It was embarrassing. But the point was, nobody was saying his name.

America really hadn't heard his name. And I spent the day reading his words. And I got on the air, and I said, "This guy is a danger. Clinton was right."

And I was accused by Republicans of trying to make the poll numbers of Bill Clinton go up by saying that. I said, "Look, you don't even know me. I'm not a fan of Bill Clinton at all. You don't know me. I want to talk to you about the facts of Osama Bin Laden." Nobody wanted to talk about the facts. They wanted to make it about politics. They just wanted that guy out.

And in frustration, after taking many phone calls, all of them accusing me of just trying to help Clinton, I snapped. And I said, "Mark my words, there will be blood, bodies and buildings in the streets of this city, New York City, within the next ten years. And the signature on those deaths will be Osama Bin Laden. Will you then care about terrorism?"

I forgot I even said that until I heard the name Osama Bin Laden about September 13th. And I looked at Stu and I said, "Oh, my gosh."

In 2004 --- late 2003 and 2004, I started talking internally and then started talking a little bit on the air because I wasn't sure, and I was afraid honestly. I was afraid of you.

I started saying on the air, "I don't, there's something wrong with the GOP. There's something wrong with the Bush administration. We're not going to be able to continue down this road. They're betraying all of the principles that we hold."

I was a big supporter of George Bush. I wasn't in 2000. But 2001 changed my mind. He got up there with a bullhorn, and all of a sudden I found myself "rah-rah. The Patriot Act. Rah-rah. Let's go kick some ass."

By 2004, the rah-rah had worn off, and I started to see what they were doing. By 2006, I saw what was happening on the border. And I had guest after guest after guest after guest on, all of them GOP, and I said, "Do you realize what's happening? Do you realize --- are you hearing, are you feeling the people out here? Because you have to change your ways because something is happening in America that I've never seen before. I can feel it." Very few understood what I was talking about.

2004, I start talking about a housing crisis, a banking crisis. By 2007, I'm ringing the bell so much, I'm losing radio stations. They're saying, "Glenn, you sound crazy." I'm on CNN. Just weeks before the crash, I have a guy on the air and he's talking about the Dow going to 33,000. In the middle of this interview, this expert that was on, beloved, everybody thought he was a genius, in the middle of the interview, I stopped and I looked right at the camera and I said, "Whatever you do, do not listen to this guy. We have a better chance in the next year of going to 5,000 than 33,000. Don't listen to this man." It didn't go well for the rest of the interview.

But more people listened to him than listened to me.

I'm putting together this crazy trip over to Israel. And I'm hearing in my prayers, "You have to announce this Monday." And I'm like, "I don't even know what I'm supposed to do."

"You have to announce it this Monday."

I fly over. Miracles happen. Open up --- we're the first Christians to ever speak at the Western Wall, ever, since Roman times. The mayor of Jerusalem is shocked. The rabbi of all of the holy places tells me he's shocked that the Lord told him, "Yes, let this Christians speak." It was a miracle. I didn't even know what was supposed to happen. I still don't know why we did it. I had to --- I had to announce it on Monday. I don't know why.

Friday, following after that Monday, Friday, Barack Obama comes out and asks for the Auschwitz lines to be reinstated, the 1968 borders. I get it.

I come back, and all I can think of was Restore Love. Restore Honor, that was in Washington, D.C. Then Restore Courage. That was in Israel. And as soon as that's done, Restore Love.

I didn't realize at the time all I was doing was faith, hope and charity. Where does honor come from? Where does courage come from? Where does love come from? How do you put them into practice? Honor, courage, love.

And nobody wants to hear me talk about Martin Luther King. Not a damn person. Nobody wants to hear me talk about Gandhi. Not a damn person.

Every time I talk about Gandhi, I hear from Christians, "Why don't you talk about Jesus." Every time I talk about Jesus, "Why are you talking about Jesus?" Every time I talk about Martin Luther King, "Why are you talking about that communist?"

Nobody wants to hear that. Nobody.

But I do as I'm told. (See, I told you he had Zionist masters.) Well, if you consider the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob my master, you'd be right. And I say we must not allow hatred to conquer our hearts.

At the time, internally, I'm telling people, "I don't even know why we're saying this. We're not Martin Luther King. We're not Gandhi. We're a million miles away from that kind of anger. There's no real oppression happening."

You most likely were saying the same thing. The same time . . . I read the words of the people in the Middle East. And the people in Washington were all saying this is a wonderful revolution in the Middle East. The Arab Spring. It's a new era. It's Jeffersonian. I read the words of the people in the Middle East. It felt an awful lot like 1999.

And I say the Muslim Brotherhood is not a peaceful organization. The people in Washington like Grover Norquist that have brought the Muslim Brotherhood into our society, have brought some of the worst people into our government, into the highest levels, into the Oval Office. They should not be held up on a pedestal. They should be shunned. They shouldn't be on the board of directors of CPAC. Grover Norquist should not be at CPAC. Grover Norquist should not be on the board of directors of the NRA. We'll find out if anybody listens to that. They're trying to pull him off the board of directors of the NRA now with a recall vote. Do you belong to the NRA? You have until this weekend to vote. Your ballot is in the magazine. It's already come out. You have to have it in by March 1st. That's Tuesday.

I talk about the caliphate. Nobody wants to listen to the caliphate. I'm mocked by the right. I'm mocked by the left. I'm mocked by the media. Nobody wants to hear it.

I didn't get here by my talent. I know what I'm capable of. Why does God give you a voice if you can't do anything about it? Why does God tell you what is coming when you can't do anything about it?

I got up this morning, and I thought, "What am I going to say to people?" Tuesday is your last chance, America. Super Tuesday is your last chance. Everybody is making this about politics. Everybody thinks I'm sitting here talking about Ted Cruz because, I don't know, I get money from Ted Cruz, and I just don't like Donald Trump because I was in his office asking him for money, or whatever the hell his excuse his.

I'm not standing for Ted Cruz. I'm standing for the Constitution of the United States of America. I'm standing for the principles we all swore to each other, to our families, and to ourselves on September 11th, we would never forget.

There is a storm coming of biblical proportions, a storm coming beyond your recognition. When the economy collapses, when our currency is worth toilet paper, who do you want, who do you want handling our nation? You want somebody who has divide us, who is grooming Brownshirts? I was at the caucus last night. I had never seen anything like it. These Trump supporters were beyond recognition as anything I've ever seen --- rude, vile, nasty.

I don't want to say all of them. But there's enough of them. And the ones that I met that were nice, I don't how you can stand in the same room with them. I don't know if you look --- how do you look at those people and say, "Wait a minute. That's what my guy is encouraging." I have some audio to play for you from yesterday. "That's what my guy is encouraging." Everybody said the same thing, "I want change." Boy, America, you are going to get change.

Don't you even hear yourself when you say that? Because you were the ones that stood up and said, "Change to what? Hope and change, Mr. Barack Obama. Mr. Barack Obama supporters, change to what?" I just want change. Oh, dear God.

Why is a man given a voice? Why is a man given the vision of what is to come if he can't do a damn thing about it?

As I wondered what to say to you this morning, and I still don't know, all that went through my head over and over again --- and I know what this means for my business, and I know what this means for my friends, and I know what this means for my family. Because Dana Loesch is going to the FBI because she's getting death threats. I know another very famous media reporter that is also on the highest level of security because of the death threats that's coming in on them.

I know what all of this means. Just in your business, I know what it means. In your popularity, I know what it means. But all I heard this morning was, "Silence in the face of evil is evil itself."

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

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.
