Two NATO Countries at Each Other's Throats Is NOT Ideal

Turkey and the Netherlands are not playing nice with each other. Turkish President Erdogan recently sent his foreign minister to the Netherlands only to be told he couldn't land, forcing his plane to turn around. In retaliation, Erdogan has said he won't allow Dutch planes to land in Turkey. According to the BBC, the Netherlands has warned its citizens over travel to Turkey as a row between the countries shows no sign of abating. Turkey has attempted to spread its message of fascism to Islamic communities in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands, but they've been blocked.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Did you guys follow what happened with Turkey and the Netherlands? I tell you, I was over in --

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: I was over in Thailand, and I was watching the news over there, it's totally different. I mean, the -- American news is just not the same.

PAT: Well, yeah. Because they have the freedom. Government-run news agencies to go ahead and tell the truth.

GLENN: It's not that. The first thing that jumps out at you is they're spoking some stupid English that you don't --

PAT: They're talking gibberish.

GLENN: Speak English, man. How does anybody understand this?

STU: That's deep. That's deep analysis.

GLENN: That's all -- so -- but I was watching it. And they led -- now, this was, what? Two weeks ago. They were leading with what was happening in Turkey and this referendum for Erdogan gaining more power. And there's just this march towards fascism. So Erdogan gone is trying to stir up support back home. And so now he's going on a world tour. And he was in Germany. Not he wasn't. He sent the foreign minister to go speak in Germany to all of the Islamic communities from Turkey that have emigrated up to Turkey and got them all jacked up on basically fascism. He tried to go to the Netherlands, and the Netherlands turned the plane around because they said, "We are not going to allow anybody who is going to try to hype people up on fascism into the Netherlands." And so they turned his plane around.

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: He lands someplace else. Gets into a car. And tries to get across the border. They stop him at the border. He's in a bulletproof car. So he just locks all the doors. And he's like, I'm not getting out. They're like, sir, you got to get out of the car.

I'm not getting out.

And they said, well, if you don't get out, we're just going to tow your car with you in it.

So he got out. They put him on a plane and sent him back to Turkey.

And Erdogan said, try landing some of your Dutch planes. Go ahead. Try and land some of your planes from the Netherlands. Let's see how this is going to work out. So now we have two NATO countries that are at each other's throats

PAT: That does not seem ideal. It really doesn't.

GLENN: That doesn't seem ideal. It really doesn't.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Who was it that let Turkey in, in the first place? Was that George Bush?

PAT: Yeah, that's -- that's a sketchy decision. I can't remember how long -- it might have been. It might have been.

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!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
