Share This Remarkable, Unifying Letter With Everyone You Know

Editor's Note: The following is based on an excerpt from The Glenn Beck Program on November 10, 2016.

I read a letter, an op-ed, that came in to me from Riaz Patel. He is a gay Muslim married man with an adopted daughter from Pakistan, who has immigrated to the United States. Now, think about how many enemies this guy has.

I brought him in about six months ago, and he said, You know, I just really want to understand your perspective. I've been watching you. I think you're a guy who is on the right track, and I want to talk to you.

So we brought him in, and a lot of people in the building were very skeptical. They were like, This is exactly how I would approach you if I were the Muslim Brotherhood. But we sat down, and I challenged him. He was talking about things and said, You know, but white people, blah, blah, blah.

And I said, Why do you do that? Why do you assume all white people are that way?

He said that really bothered him after he left. He had not been around people like us that challenged him, so he realized he had just accepted the stereotypes people had fed him.

He has been talking to us, you know, a lot. And he's an amazing man. He got on a plane and went to Alaska this last weekend. He realized none of his friends know any Trump supporters, and so he went to Alaska and took three or four days, just went there and started talking to people.

He wrote the most amazing op-ed --- and you want to talk about brave --- the most amazing op-ed where he said, Boy, I didn't get it, and nobody I know in New York gets it. Here's who these Trump supporters really are. He makes the best, most compassionate case I've ever seen.

Quite honestly, he's someone people on our side would say, Stay away from him. We didn't.

At the beginning of his op-ed, he says this:

It's because I met with Glenn Beck and he challenged me to think differently than I have been. And look at what I've found.

It is truly remarkable. This is the difference we can make when we reach out to the other side. I hope you share his letter with everyone you know.

Former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin is facing several charges for his role in the death of George Floyd. But attorney Andrew Branca, who specializes in self-defense law, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain exactly what must be proven in order for those charges to stand.

Did Chauvin act reasonably in the context of the entire situation? Were his actions directly responsible for Floyd's death, or could it be blamed on factors beyond Chauvin's control?

Branca also argued that the prosecutor committed misconduct serious enough for a potential appeal, how political tension makes it "impossible" for a fair trial, why he would vote not guilty, and what sentence Chauvin is facing if the actual jury disagrees.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.
