EXCLUSIVE: Glenn Speaks With Orlando Survivor Tony Sanchez

Tony Sanchez, who survived the horrific terrorist attack in Orlando, graciously spoke with Glenn from his hospital bed, just prior to going into surgery Thursday morning. Tony remains in critical but stable condition after being shot four times in the back and in his left arm, which was completely shattered.

During the emotional 20-minute conversation, Tony spoke about the harrowing experience, the doctors' belief in a miracle that spared his internal organs and spinal cord, and the plan God has for him.

Watch a portion of the sobering interview below.

"What is the prognosis on you? When you were shot in your lower back -- that is so scary -- are you mobile? Will you be able to be mobile again?" Glenn asked.

"So far, they say yes," Tony said. "As far as my arm, they still are trying to reconstruct it because it was --- it was messed up pretty bad. They opened my stomach to see if any organs or my spinal cord was hit by any other bullets. And they consider it a miracle because none of the bullets touched any other organs or the spinal cord."

Tony went on to describe how he and his best friend Luis --- who did not survive --- were about to leave when the sound of bullets erupted.

"So my instinct --- and most everybody's instinct --- was just to fall to the ground and cover themselves," Tony said.

When he saw the shooter approaching about 20 minutes later, shooting people in the head, Tony buried his head under a couch. He described seeing bodies to his left and right.

"Oh, dear God," Glenn said. "I'm --- I'm --- man, I'm sorry to --- this must be horrible for you to talk about."

The gunman stopped shooting and Tony believed he was in the clear, but he wasn't. He described the awful moments that followed:

He stopped shooting, so I was like, "It's over. Hey, I'm actually pretty much going to make it." I'm hoping it's over and the cops got to him or whatever. But then, like five minutes after, shots were getting fired again. And that's when I don't know where, I felt him shoot my back.

It was very bad because the bullets went through my back, and they came out and hit my arm also. So my arm was destroyed, and all my blood was just coming out of my arm. So it was like a pool of blood from everybody because there was too many people around me.

When police entered and began clearing the space, Tony dragged himself toward the door with his one good arm. That's when someone picked him up and carried him about a block away. He passed out and woke up in the hospital.

"What do you take from all of this personally, Tony? Have you, I mean, I know you're so early in on this, but what is the main thing that keeps going through your head right now?" Glenn asked.

"I just got to keep on fighting. Can't give up. And I thank everybody that's been supporting me. And I just got to keep on pushing forward because if I'm still alive, it's because, you know, God has a plan for me. That's the only thing I could think of," Tony said.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Tony to cover medical expenses, hospital bills, food, counseling and anything the family may need.

"If you want to help with his medical bills, we're all brothers and sisters. Let's take that off their plate," Glenn said.

A GoFundMe campaign has also been established to support all shooting victims and their families. The campaign has already raised nearly $5 million, dwarfing GoFundMe's previous campaign record of just over $2 million.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
