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.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
