Glenn's Personal Note to Mark Levin: We Can't Straddle the Line Like Furtwängler

Glenn spent the morning researching a guy not many people know about: Wilhelm Furtwängler. Furtwängler was an enormously famous conductor in Germany during the 1930s and 1940s. While he continued conducting the philharmonic during Hitler's reign, he secretly helped Jews escape.

Glenn mentioned Furtwängler in a personal note sent to Mark Levin after hearing what Levin had to say about Sean Hannity's comments.

"I think he did exactly the right thing: He defended both of us, both of us, and said, 'I'm not getting involved.' I think that was exactly the right thing to do. I wrote him last night, and then I wrote him again this morning," Glenn said Wednesday on his radio program.

Glenn shared what he wrote to Levin on radio this morning:

Mark, this is all uncharted territory, what we're dealing with now. But as I study history and what is happening overseas, which has come our way now, I feel that these are the beginnings of the times of Bonhoeffer. If never forget is to mean anything, we must speak while those seeds are being planted.

I had a rabbi come to my office about eight months ago from the Simon Wiesenthal Center for a private meeting at his request. He begged me to stop talking about the plight of Jews in Europe. I was stunned. He told me, they're coming for your people first this time.

I feared at the time he might be right. I know now we are. We must be firm and clear now, before it can take root and destroy the credibility of any voice standing for freedom.

I spent the morning today researching a guy nobody knows: Wilhelm Furtwängler.

"Oh, my gosh. What a coincidence," Pat interjected. "We were just talking about Furtwängler."

"Wilhelm, Wilhelm," Jeffy said.

"And Jeffy was like, well, I'm deep into my research on it," Pat continued.

"That's so funny. I'm so glad I didn't do it. I almost wore my Furtwängler T-shirt today on the air. I took it off at the last minute," Stu added.

"Shut up," Glenn chimed in.

He continued with his letter to Mark Levin:

I believe this man was a hero, but I'm not entirely sure. But I do know this: We can't straddle the line at this point. Maybe later we have to straddle the line and do what he did to save others. But at this point, those of us who are clear must stand, not only to save the voice of freedom, but our souls and more importantly, our friends. It cannot only happen here. I believe it already is.

As my friend, please help me navigate these waters. We are all in a corner with our back against the wall. None of us know how to navigate this. We're all doing our best. And I am more than open to hearing advice from a trusted friend who is striving for the same outcome and who is honorably holding on to his principles. We may not always agree on the path forward, but if we can retain respect for one another and believe the best in one another, we will make it.

"The reason why I wanted to share that with you is, I'm coming from a different place. I am not looking at this election. I am looking at the ramifications of this election. And there are worst things than our country being destroyed: Our country losing its soul is much more important, at least to me," Glenn said.

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
