Glenn's Mind Officially Blown: Rabbi Daniel Lapin Boards the Trump Train

One of Glenn's favorite people joined The Glenn Beck Program on Friday. Rabbi Daniel Lapin, whose weekly radio podcast on TheBlaze.com has 6.5 million monthly downloads, stopped by to discuss the migrant crisis, America's special place in the world and the mind-blowing fact that he's boarded the Trump train.

On Voting for Trump or Hillary

"Does there ever come a point when the evil is too much? The evil on both sides? It's like, I can't do it," Glenn asked.

"I don't think so," Rabbi Lain replied. "And I say this with considerable more than respect, a deep admiration for the peril in which you placed your entire career and your enterprise in the incredibly courageous stand you took in politics over the last few months. I truly believe that the history books in the future will speak of this election and identify you as perhaps the only business professional, the only media businessperson who has ever put his integrity on the line like that, and stuck to principle."

He continued.

"With that, look. I don't think that we're on a Carnival Cruise line. I think we're on a sinking ship. And what we're looking at are two life boats. And there are only two life boats, and each one will be able to take us all, but one of them, as I look at it, has holes in the hull. Now, the other one has a canvas cover, and you've got to make up your mind which to go on. The boat is going down. You've got to go with one of them. Please don't think that Carnival Cruise lines is showing up on the horizon to pick you up. And that's what we have here."

On Refugee Migration

"They're moving strongly on Europe, and I've heard say, you know, Europe's not going to defend itself, nor can it," Glenn said.

"It lacks both the capacity and the will, and, you know, again, it's a complete collapse of any traditional Judeo-Christian sense of morality. The very notion that bringing in migrants is somehow a manifestation of your virtue is such a pathological failure of all sense of survival, all sense of morality. I'm trying to get you to confront a very painful reality. This is a rough world. Sometimes things do not always have a happy ending. Do you take the migrants into your lifeboat and sink everybody? Or do you have to very sadly say, the guys who are already in the lifeboat have priority? It's a tough question. But you do have to confront it," Rabbi Lapin said.

On the Pathology of Socialism

"I had some hope. Now, you kind of look at things and you think, well, there is no truth. We're denying physical reality. 'Yeah, you feel like a girl? Oh, yes, ma'am.' We're denying physical reality. I think we're not even looking for the truth anymore. The truth is irrelevant. It doesn't matter. So when you say, 'Hey, are you going to take the sinking ship, are you going to sink the lifeboat?' Well, there's no critical thinking," Glenn said.

"And it is painful. I can see that, but you've got to remember, the left absolutely hates the idea that culture makes a difference in people. One of the foundational rock-solid principles and defending the pathology of socialism is that everybody's exactly the same. So if you say something, let's see, there's likely to be a more comfortable adjustment if we bring in 500,000 Swedes to live in Germany or 500,000 people from north Africa? Could there possibly be a difference? Is it possible that people from a Christian background might integrate more comfortably into Lutheran Germany than people from a Muslim background? Now, that is a completely verboten question to even ask," Rabbi Lapin said.

On the Biblical Principle of Cleanliness

"More households own a Bible in America than anywhere else in the industrialized world, except for Israel. So Israel and America naturally are the focus of the fury of the culture of the Koran, and one of the differences is that it is a Biblical value to celebrate cleanliness and hygiene. Water-borne sewage was invented in a Christian culture. There are many parts of the world that still haven't bought into the concept. But by and large, when this was weighed up, when the culture of the Koran and many other parts of the world had an opportunity to weigh up what the west had achieved, they said, 'You know what? I think we're going to make bathrooms in Bombay and Beijing and Bangkok resemble bathrooms in Boston and Birmingham. That's really what we're going to do. Because you know what? You guys got it right. To be surrounded by your own bodily waste is really not a great idea.' It's a genius concept. And this is a concept that comes from Biblical western thinking. And the opposite of that is reveling in filth and ugliness. It's not an accident that modern art in America, what has that become? You remember a horrible piece, you'll pardon me, 'art,' called Piss Christ?" Rabbi Lapin said.

"And Virgin Mary in dung," Glenn added.

"And the Brooklyn Art Museum. What is their focus and their obsession on bodily waste? It is the triumph of barbarism of western civilization," Rabbi Lapin said.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."
