What Do Bill O'Reilly and a 'Queer Punk Rock' Band Have in Common?

They've both recently discovered America no longer exists. At least not in its intended form.

O'Reilly lost his gig at Fox without anyone proving ANYTHING against him. I wonder if the realization that Fox was handing out millions of dollars to anyone who so much as made an accusation, would inspire more accusations? Nah.

Now, do I know for a fact Bill didn't sexually harass anyone? No. However, based on my experience with him, I sincerely doubt he would jeopardize everything he's worked so long and so hard for, by harassing women. He's too smart and too professional for that. Not to mention, again, no proof has ever been offered...yet his career was burned to the ground anyway.

Does a check for $25 million on your way out soften the blow? Sure, but that's not the point.

Remember Mozilla Firefox CEO, Brendan Eich, who was fired from HIS job? That wasn't even over an allegation of wrong-doing...but over a donation to a cause in which he believed. Someone was offended by his support of that cause, so, he was kicked to the curb.

Then...today, a story broke about a "Queer Punk Rock" band that is truly unbelievable. Now, my love for Queer Punk Rock is of course...legendary, so I'm obviously biased :)...still, let me make the case.

If you missed the story, this Queer Punk band, PWR BTTM (Power Bottom?), is made up of gender non-conforming musicians, and they are apparently HIGHLY acclaimed and very much on the rise. They were supposed to be "the next big thing." Their second album had not even been released yet, it was highly anticipated, and universally loved by critics.

That is until someone...also "gender non-conforming" I believe, published a Facebook post that accused one of the band members of sexual assault. The article described the "assault" as...unwanted "advances." It was somewhat unclear if the accuser was even alleging any sort of physical contact. The accuser was also NOT the victim of the "advances"...they just claimed they had witnessed them.

Well, the allegation was posted a week ago...and already, the band has apparently been destroyed. Concerts have been cancelled (including one here in Dallas) and their record company has virtually eliminated the bands' music from the Internet. All without a SHRED of proof that ANYTHING inappropriate took place...and all without a victim coming forward.

A potentially promising career in ruins...over a FACEBOOK POST.

So, what do Bill O'Reilly and "Power Bottom" have in common?

They're each gender non-conforming. Wait, that's not right. They both rock the Queer Punk scene. No...that's not it.

They both live somewhere, OTHER than...America.

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!"
