#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.

I'm going to introduce you to what is by far the most annoying trend on social media involving a particular emoji. The annoying online trend features the clapping emoji πŸ‘ in πŸ‘ between πŸ‘ each πŸ‘ word.

The technique is most often used β€” unironically β€” by the social justice types to express indignation or condescension.

It's meant to imply that the person who is writing the message is so much more "woke" than you that they are righteously allowed to clap in your face. Just looking at it is enough to test your blood pressure. Among the most recent standouts is the controversy surrounding Scarlett Johansson's decision to play a transgender character, which LGBTQ advocates would view as a good thing, right? You know, her being an ally to their cause and all. Here's one of the myriad tweets that sums up the feeling:

For weeks, the social justice types had been raging about Johansson, who was slated to portray a crime kingpin who was born a woman but identified as male in the film Rub & Tug.

In an interview with NPR β€” naturally β€” a trans activist had this to say about it:

Casting male actors to play trans women and female actors to play trans men really reinforces the idea that trans men are really women who are pretending to be men and tricking people into thinking they're men as opposed to the truth, which is that transgender men are living authentically as themselves. And we look like men and we feel like men, and we are perceived as men, and there's no reason, like, women should be playing us.

Listen to the full interview here:

Boy, if it weren't already confusing enough…

In response to this so-called backlash, Scarlett Johansson released a statement to her critics, noting to "tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto and Felicity Huffman's reps for comment."

But, finally β€” as most people do these days β€” she buckled. She released the following statement:

In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project. Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I've learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive.

What's the source of all this outrage? Because, we all know that the small but vocal mob β€” who the mainstream media has for some reason given a platform, and whose voice is louder than the rest of ours β€” is able to bully until they get what they want.

There's no winning.

Let's say that Scarlett Johansson had refused the role to begin with, on the grounds that she will not play a transgender character. You can guarantee the same crowd that's outraged now would be in fits. There's no winning. The best we can do is treat those around us with respect, live humbly and, for heaven's sake, don't clap between every damn word.

We should all be praying for success at the Trump/Putin sit-down

92 percent of the world's nuclear weapons are in TWO countries: the U.S. and Russia. And as I'm speaking right now, the leaders of both countries are sitting down at a table to try and figure out how to coexist with one another. Sounds kind of important right? And even though the media will slap-fight each other to death today in an attempt to turn the Trump/Putin summit partisan, what's happening right now in Helsinki is probably the least most partisan thing happening right now… like anywhere. As in, the entire planet.

If there was ever a time to be partisan… this isn't it. To any Democrat, Republican or mainstream media pundit looking to turn this into some gotcha political narrative… what the hell is wrong with you? The last time the U.S. and Russian presidents sat down for a summit was in 2010… eight years ago! Here's a small rundown of how "cold" our relationship has been since then.

Russia still has troops in Georgia after their invasion during Obama's first term. Keep in mind, Georgia was a country considering joining NATO. That invasion was Russia's coming out party. It was a warning to the world that things were about to change, and they were just getting started. They would then invade, steal and annex Crimea from Ukraine. They'd also invade, destabilize and wage war in Eastern Ukraine. That war is still going on to this day, but rarely does the media talk about it anymore. And the backdrop to that invasion and silent war was an accusation from the Russians that the United States deliberately encouraged the fall of the Ukrainian president and government.

Meanwhile, Russia continues supplying troops and equipment to their side, and we are now providing military training and anti-tank missiles to ours.

And Ukraine is just one of the proxy wars currently being fought between the two nuclear powers. Syria is the other. In April, we admitted to killing nearly 200 Russians in that conflict.

Over the past four years, over 700 Russian citizens and companies have been sanctioned, 35 diplomats have been declared persona non grata, 2 Russian diplomatic compounds have been closed, one consulate and two diplomatic annexes. Oh… and Russia has ejected over 700 U.S. diplomatic staff.

Between cyber attacks and indictments on Russian intelligence personnel, tensions have never been higher.

Between cyber attacks and indictments on Russian intelligence personnel, tensions have never been higher. Russia currently maintains an arsenal of 6,600 nuclear weapons. We have 6,450. The next closest nuke holders are France with 300 and China with 280. It's not even close. Between Washington and Moscow, there are over 13,000 nuclear weapons pointed at one another.

Forget partisan politics. The two toughest kids on the block just met for a sit-down, and we should all be praying for their success.

It's not just the Twitter mobs, the Leftist extremists and the flagrant fourth-wave feminists who want ICE abolished. As we've seen, there's a growing number of politicians who want to see it as well.

Cue Alejandro Alvarez, who in his 32 years has managed to cultivate his brand as a "serial immigration violator." Alejandro has been deported 11 times. Well, he's facing deportation once again, after allegedly "slashing his wife with a chainsaw." His wife is in recovery and is expected to survive.

Around 3:00 pm last Wednesday, police arrived at Alejandro's. When they arrived, they found Alvarez's wife suffering from "traumatic physical injuries, believed to have been inflicted by a chainsaw." The couple's three children were huddled in fear inside the home. Alejandro's wife was rushed to a nearby trauma center for an emergency surgery.

Alejandro fled the scene of the crime, but was eventually hauled in by police and booked under "suspicion of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run, and grand theft auto."

Sounds like the kind of guy who should be in our country illegally, right?

ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley noted that "Immigration officers have lodged a detainer against Alvarez, requesting that local authorities notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement before his release to allow them to take the man into custody."

This is the new reality.

This is the new reality. The immigration agency has to ask for permission, to file requests, to have illegal immigrants who are guilty of crimes dealt with. Luckily for Alejandro, Los Angeles is a sanctuary city, so maybe he'll get another pass and be back on the streets in no time.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

Why is nobody talking about this?

Alabama law enforcement officials say that an illegal immigrant and an immigrant in the United States on a green card are responsible for the brutal murders of a grandmother and her 13-year-old special needs granddaughter in what investigators say is violence related to Mexican drug cartels.
