Trigger Warning! Glenn Decides Whether Your Halloween Costume Is Offensive

Need to know if your Halloween costume might offend? You're in luck! The University of Massachusetts at Amherst has issued a threat-level flowchart similar to the Department of Homeland Security's terror threat advisory system. S.C.R.E.A.M. (Simple Costume Racism Evaluation and Assessment Meter) is a color-coded system with five threat levels from low to severe.

“I’ve got to give you a trigger warning. I might say something that might upset you guys,” Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

Glenn went on to describe how he might react if confronted unexpectedly with the flowchart.

"If I was walking and I saw this on a telephone pole and it was just a picture, a flyer that was just stapled up, and there was no trigger warning that on a pole there might be something offensive, I would be --- and I apologize to Polish people . . . I was not talking . . . I mean a telephone pole . . . didn't mean just to say Pol," Glenn said.

Thankfully, Pat, Stu and Jeffy were all in safe spaces which prevented them from needing counseling due to Glenn's insensitive words.

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these questions:

• Is Pat of Polish decent?

• Should your girlfriend or wife dress as a hot white nurse or a white hot nurse?

• Did your ancestors kill anyone that would prevent you from culturally appropriating a specific costume?

• Is it cool to wear an Indian costume (assuming you're not American Indian --- and no offense if you are or aren't American Indian)?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: UMass has a flowchart now for offensive Halloween costumes.

PAT: Oh, good. Finally.

GLENN: Yeah, it's a flowchart called the simple costume racism evaluation and assessment meter. It allows students to determine if their costume is offensive, based on factors like race, historically accepted clichés, and humor. The -- I love when humor has a chart.

JEFFY: Oh. Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: You know it's funny when it has a chart from an institution.

JEFFY: Yes. They should send that down to the University of Florida --

GLENN: They should send it that to Yuck Yucks and Milk Through Your Nose, so the comedians can look at that chart before they go. On.

The results come up in a five-second color-coded area, similar to the government's terror alert level, ranking from low threat level to green to a severe level of threat in red.

PAT: Uh-oh.

GLENN: The flyers are going up around the campus. They have pictures or illustrations.

JEFFY: Oh, no.

GLENN: Hang on. I got to give everyone a trigger warning.

PAT: Oh, no, no.

JEFFY: Thank you.

GLENN: I got to give you a trigger warning. I might say something that might upset you guys.

PAT: I'm in a safe space over here. So you cannot offend me.

GLENN: Okay. I will tell you -- I'm glad I don't go to this college. Because if I was walking and I saw this on a telephone pole and it was just a picture, a flyer that was just stapled up, and there was no trigger warning that on a pole there might be something offensive, I would be -- and I apologize to Polish people. I was not talking -- I mean a telephone pole. Didn't mean just to say Pol.

PAT: Thank you for the clarification on that. I was about to become very, very offended.

GLENN: Okay. You're welcome.

The flyers around campus have pictures of illustrations of white people dressed up as Native Americans.

PAT: Oh, no. You know what that is? Cultural appropriation.

GLENN: That's exactly right. Exactly right. One reads, it's not cool. It's not like your ancestors killed them or anything.

PAT: Only it is. They're being sarcastic because our ancestors did kill them. And everything.

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: So...

GLENN: Another poster of a scantily clad woman says hyper-sexualized racism is still racism.

PAT: Hyper-sexualized racism is still racism. It is.

GLENN: What if you're a white guy and you have your girlfriend is white, and she's dressed up as a hot white nurse or a white hot nurse.

JEFFY: No, that's still hyper-sexualized though.

PAT: That's hyper-sexualized sexism -- it's sexism in that case, Glenn. I'm disappointed in you that you didn't see that. Disappointed.

GLENN: What if -- oh, boy. Other displays on cultural appropriation contradict one another. One flyer says cultural appropriation is an act of privilege. Leads to offensive, inaccurate, and stereotypical portrayals of other people's culture. Another flyer says that culture is fluid.

JEFFY: Oh.

PAT: Yeah.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
