Glenn's Action Items and Plea to the Gay Community After Orlando

The media talks about the Orlando story as a mass shooting rather than a terror attack --- but their willful ignorance doesn't change the truth.

"We have to be really clear, the nation is at war. From 9/11 to the Boston Marathon, from Fort Hood to Chattanooga, from San Bernardino to Orlando, our nation is at war," Glenn said.

Aside from the obvious --- being at war with radical Islam --- we're also fighting a battle with the progressive left and their effort to divide us from each other and our principles.

"Before Obama's election, research showed that this was the first generation that did not see race. But because of politics, they now see race. That very generation now sees race," Glenn said.

So what can we do in the aftermath of Orlando to fight these battles and stand united as American citizens, irrespective of our differences?

"I will tell you this: I'm making a list of the things that I will do. I suggest you do the same," Glenn said.

What's on Glenn's list?

I will teach my children the truth in a more fervent fashion, with more urgency.

I will teach my children the difference between good and evil by speaking out against evil.

I will stand against evil, and I will stand for good.

I will listen. I will learn. I will try to stay away from divisive politics while holding firm to the truth.

I will unite with others on the truth.

I will not be divided from the truth, living in a dream world that will only cause more misery.

I will stand with the courageous mayor of Irving, Texas, who is standing up for the U.S. Constitution and laws of Texas.

I will carry a gun.

"Nobody's coming into my studios to slaughter. While audience members cannot come in with a gun, this is not a gun-free zone. The only reason why we don't let audience members come in with a gun is because we do live television and people would love to be famous. So no guns are allowed in the studio. But don't mistake that for a gun-free zone because we're not a sitting target. Somebody smuggles a gun into this building, we'll kill you, and we'll kill you fast," Glenn said.

Glenn vehemently disagrees with Jimmy Carter's notion about first responders.

"That term started with Jimmy Carter. He's the one that made that famous, that we all think that [the EMS and police are] the first responders. It's a lie. We are the first responders. And if somebody wants to come into my place of business and start screaming about how great Allah is and they start to even think that they are going to pull the trigger on me or someone else, I will pull the trigger on them. We're not calling the police and waiting for them. We will be the first responder," Glenn said.

As a law-abiding citizen, Glenn understands the great responsibility that comes with exercising his Second Amendment rights.

"You don't want guns on a dance floor where there's booze. There are some places like that you just don't want to carry a gun. But by God, I'll carry a gun wherever I can, and I'll avoid those places where I can't carry a gun," Glenn said.

The enemy in this war doesn't just target homosexuals --- they target Christians, Muslims who aren't Muslim enough, anyone who doesn't bow to Sharia law.

"I am begging you, I am begging you, if you're a member of the gay community, please, let's stand arm in arm. Please, let's stand together. We may not agree on everything. We may not agree on wedding cakes, but God Almighty, we agree on life," Glenn said. "And we agree on your right and my right to have a different lifestyle and to live the life that you want to live. We agree on equal rights, even though sometimes the rights of others piss us off."

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
