#IWillDefendTheDefenseless: Down Syndrome Man Told How Much He Costs

It is time for everyone to wake up. We are heading down the same road as the world went down in the 1930s. Choose a side NOW and stand for life. ALL LIFE. DEFEND THOSE WHO CANNOT DEFEND THEMSELVES.

This video is a horrible glimpse into our not-too-distant-future.

Please watch and share.

Will you defend the defenseless? Comment below.

GLENN: I posted something at GlennBeck.com that I seriously -- I mean, unless you're driving, I want you to stop everything you're doing and go to GlennBeck.com and watch. Then I want you to tweet it or Facebook it and ask everyone you know to do the same.

The Mesopotamians didn't believe that -- they didn't believe in good and evil. They didn't think that there was a force of evil.

And there's a lot of Americans that don't believe that there is a force of evil. I happen to. But the Mesopotamians believed their concept of good and evil was health and illness.

And that you wanted to stay away from things because you could catch that illness. You could catch that evil.

And you would be in a state of decay.

We -- we have caught a bad case of evil. And it is spreading like a virus, like a plague. And it is -- it is happening the same way the world caught the last bad case of evil in the 1930s.

I want you to go -- this is so important. Please, especially if you have anyone in your family who is handicapped at all.

I've posted a -- a video with the Dutch National Institute for public health. And what they have done is they have put together a little video with a guy who has Down syndrome. Now, right now, we are talking about early testing to abort every child with Down syndrome. In Iceland, Reykjavik, is the first place on earth to have a zero birthrate of Down syndrome. And it's all because of abortions. They do early testing. And then they abort any child with Down syndrome.

I do not wish anyone to be born with a deformity or born with Down syndrome. However, if you have ever spent any time around anyone with Down syndrome, I'm telling you right now -- and excuse the expression, but it is appropriate. If you have been around people with Down syndrome, you will recognize quickly, you are retarded, not them.

They have -- their spirit and their joy and what they bring to humanity is beyond anything that any of us will ever bring to humanity.

So there is this push now to eradicate. And the Dutch National Institute for public health, in this video, they have one of their scholars, their number crunchers. And they have another gentleman, like a reporter, who is standing there with a man with Down syndrome.

And he is listening to this. But I don't believe he fully understands what is happening here. He is seeing that he costs a lot of money, that it costs the National Institute of Health. It cost the average taxpayer a lot to keep him going.

And he realizes, wow, I'm pretty special. I'm -- I'm expensive.

That's not the case they're making. They're making the case that people like him should be eliminated.

Stu, can you translate a little bit, read the -- I'm going to play this video, and just read the back and forth on the screen. Go ahead and roll this video, please.

STU: Forty thousand euro per year approximately per Downer.

They're call them Downers.

Ah, yes. Per person.

So they cost us as a society, 40,000 euros per year.

GLENN: And the Down person says wow.

STU: That's a considerable amount, but is it high compared to normal persons?

Well, you can calculate that by taking the big number, $90 billion -- euros, and divide this by the amount of citizens in the Netherlands. And there are approximately 17 million. And that will give you approximately now at 5,000 euros per person. So you could say that the Down syndrome person is ten times as expensive than we are. Those expenses are indeed ten times as high.

You're a valuable man.

And he said, yes, I had not expected that. The Down syndrome person in the video says, yes, I had not expected that.

So they're sitting there telling him he's way too expensive to support.

GLENN: And he's smiling back.

This is --

STU: I mean, it is revolting.

GLENN: Mankind has caught the same disease it caught in the early 20th century. And it is the same kind of mentality, that we can make, you know, the uber man. That we can get rid of all of man's flaws through technology.

Back then, we couldn't do it. We can now.

But it still involves killing. It still involves killing those with Down syndrome while they're in the womb.

How do you put a price tag on a human being? How do you not see the value?

We are in this time once again where it's all about the collective. We have to think alike. We have to act alike. We have to agree on everything.

That's not what made the world the world. What made the world is we all think differently. We all have different talents. We all have different points of view. It's the grind that sharpens us.

If you're not -- if you're not being ground -- people are trying to take all pain away. I understand. I understand. I really understand.

I don't want -- I have a child of special needs. The pain of your heart as a parent is beyond understanding. Only a parent of special needs can truly understand the pain of the parent that never ever goes away.

But the joy is greater.

We've been down this road before. And it was the Dutch -- it was the Dutch that were really on the cutting edge of euthanasia and killing the handicapped.

He goes on in this to say, the only other class that costs us anywhere near this are the old that, you know, once they have to be taken care of all the time, they can't just go to the doctor and get a pill, then they really start to grind on the finances of the -- of the country and start costing the taxpayers.

Well, what did Germany first do? They killed the handicapped. And then they killed the incurables. They killed the elderly. Anybody who was costing too much money.

We are not in a financial panic yet. But I warn you, we are coming to one. And when we do, if we don't know what is true, if we don't know what life means, we are creating artificial life. Super intelligent artificial life right now. And they're debating on how to somehow or another keep it in a cage so it doesn't end up killing all of us.

How could we possibly teach artificial life, the meaning of life, and that they should protect humans and never turn against humans, when we don't value all life ourselves?

Oh, that I had the voice of an angel. If I could shake the earth for wake people up. But it doesn't work that way.

My job is to warn you. My job is to show you what's happening and bring you perspective from my point of view.

I've taken my job seriously, perhaps too seriously at times, for a long time. And I am warning you with everything in you -- with everything in me, please, please, please, get all of the lies out of your own life. Please, do not just listen to the things that reconfirm your worldview.

Please, do the things that make you uncomfortable so you can learn the other side and you can understand the other side. Because the only way you can defeat the other side is if you know it.

Please, if you don't believe in evil, at least treat it like a nasty virus like the Mesopotamians did. Because the world is catching a killer flu. It is a plague. And it almost wiped decency and kindness and humanity -- it almost wiped it off the face of the earth.

But there was one group of people that stood -- that had the resources and the power. And that was the new world rushing over to save the old world. That was us. We don't have the power. We don't have the money. We really not together. We don't even know what's true anymore.

We will throw ourselves in the arms of Putin, if he reaffirms our worldview. Please, go to GlennBeck.com today. And watch this video. And share it with as many people as you can. Find ways to make this go viral. Please, wake people up to the road on which we are currently traveling.

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.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

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?
