Why does Glenn Beck hate Jesus?



Scott Baker from Breitbart TV

GLENN: Now, I have to tell you there are several people that help this program out. In research there are people that work around the clock. Literally they have worked around the clock doing research on things different times of the year. Scott Baker is one of those guys from Breitbart TV and, Scott, you were when did I e mail you? About eight weeks ago or so about a new advisor on the president?

BAKER: Yeah, you, I think it was maybe six, eight weeks ago saying, you know, Jim Wallis. And I didn't know him personally.

GLENN: Right.

BAKER: But I've heard him speak and I had 25 years of watching him. And so I knew exactly what your areas of concern would be. It was very clear to me.

GLENN: It doesn't, it doesn't take a genius.

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: Although he has cloaked himself so very well into, into just a, oh, he's just a spiritual advisor for the president.

BAKER: I think it's kind of like, you know, you've talked about this on your programs before, that there seems to be a new marching order for progressives. You know, it's like we're not going to sell this stuff if we look like hippies, right?

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

BAKER: And so it's like dress it up, put the suit on, slick it up.

GLENN: Van Jones.

BAKER: Exactly.

GLENN: Van Jones, he is an avowed communist and yet nobody will ask him that question and if they did, I can guarantee who would say, "Look, I'm a green jobs guy."

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: I am looking for social justice.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: I think this economy is out of control. I mean, capitalism, it's not working the way it's running right. That's the way he will answer it. And it happened strangely all at once with all of these radicals. They all of a sudden decided to change their language, independently. Am I wrong?

BAKER: No, I think you are absolutely right. I think they did and, you know, Jim Wallis is a very effective spokesman for his set of ideas. And I did ask him, by the way. I interviewed him on Friday for about 40 minutes and I said, what do you, what do you call yourself? Are you a Christian Marxist or something? And he's like, "I'm not left, I'm not right. Don't go liberal, don't go conservative. Go deeper." Right? That's sort of his

GLENN: Deeper? Deeper?

BAKER: Mantra.

PAT: Oh, please.

GLENN: And you know what? Jim, I want you to know this is not a personal attack on you. I really don't care about you or your church or anything else. You know, I don't, I don't mind if anybody goes to a church that I don't go.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: I'm not trying to, you know, change your mind or anything. I just want an open and honest conversation happening in America.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: And that's not what you want. That's not what your ilk wants. You hide. And if you had the courage of your conviction, you would Stott bearing false witness against your brother and you would actually just say what you mean and mean what you say. That's what Jesus did. That's, of course you know, you don't want to take the chance that you might lose. Jesus was crucified because he said what he meant and meant what he said.

BAKER: I wait. I thought Glenn Beck hated Jesus? That's what I saw in Time magazine.

GLENN: I know. That's amazing. So I don't want to talk about him because

BAKER: Can I give let me give you just one because when you said that phrase

GLENN: You're dieing.

BAKER: bearing false witness.

GLENN: Yeah.

BAKER: Well, no, it's like, you know, a horse in the gates ready to go.

GLENN: Yeah, I know.

BAKER: And I know you want to keep your focus on healthcare but I'm telling you there is a lot to get here.

GLENN: Oh, I know.

BAKER: And it's not peripheral stuff. This is when I heard you talking to the mother of the girl at Wheaton College last week, Wheaton College was my college and these debates were big debates for us back when we were at school in the Eighties. And when she was talking about kind of that feeling of the loss of her daughter, what happened to this bright girl that went off and now has kind of bought into this. That's what I used to think when I was there and I would see the people rallying and all this kind of stuff. How are you people buying this crap? You know, and so here when I and I sent that phrase bearing false witness to you because that's what I tried to press on outside of all these issues to say there may be people that are less religious, that don't follow the debates about social justice and all of that, that might not know what Glenn Beck was talking about. But if there's anybody in America who really does know exactly what Glenn Beck is talking about, it would be Jim Wallis. He knows that for a century there's been debates in Christianity about social gospels and personal gospels and his issues have been very divisive within the church. And so for him to come out and say this is what Glenn Beck is speaking against, caring for your neighbor and loving your neighbor as yourself, absolute bull. And I said

PAT: And he knows it.

BAKER: But he wouldn't come to. I asked him three times. I said, you know that's not what he's talking about because and the problem was he said, yes, well, I yes, back I grew up in the Plymouth brethren and these were great debates. I was like, exactly. You know that they're great debates and you know that's what he was talking about. So why are you bearing false witness?

PAT: What did he say?

GLENN: What did he say?

BAKER: He just says, I have no idea what he's talking about and he needs to he's offended people and he needs to apologize.

GLENN: Yeah. Jim, that's not going to happen. Gosh darn it.

BAKER: He will be upset about that.

GLENN: I know he will, and I hate when Marxists get upset because yeah.

PAT: Now, you would have to be preaching redistribution of wealth to be called a Marxist.

GLENN: No, he wouldn't no, he wouldn't preach that, would he, Pat? Would he preach that?

PAT: I'm sure not. I'm sure he's he's been asked about it. I'm sure he's absolutely not!

VOICE: Are you then calling for the redistribution of wealth in society?

WALLIS: Absolutely, without any hesitation. That's what the gospel is all about.

GLENN: Oh. Oh, I didn't

PAT: Wait. Hold it.

GLENN: Hmmm. The widow's mite.

PAT: I was waiting for "Absolutely not." Not "Absolutely."

GLENN: I'm waiting.

PAT: Now, was the widow's mite, that came from a government agency, right?

GLENN: No, no. But I do remember in the gospel that I read Jesus saying you only had one might? That guy over there, he's got too many mites! Get his mites and we can give it to you! Do you remember that scene? No, I don't, either. I don't, either. Isn't that weird? But that's absolutely what

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That's absolutely what he believes the gospel is about. You know better than that. If you want to give your wealth to someone, that's what you do. Jon Huntsman is more what the gospel is about. He's made billions of dollars. He's going to die broke because he chooses to give it away.

BAKER: But Jim Wallis says that voluntary charity is not enough.

GLENN: You don't happen to have that audio?

PAT: We do.

GLENN: Gosh darn it, we'll have to take a break and come back for that audio. But I don't want to, I don't want to say this is a you know, I don't want to get, you know, onto the Jim Wallis bandwagon today because, oh, Jim, I have a plan, you see?

BAKER: I'm just going to put my computer away then because I've got all of these clips and all the

GLENN: Oh, no, no. No, no, we've got oh, no, I've got a special way to debut all of this, Jim, and educate America. Because I know you're for education, too. I am as well. So we're going to educate America on this together and it will be great. And you just keep listening, Jim, because I've got a special way to do that. But I'm not going to get pulled off of healthcare because that's almost like what an adviser to the president would like me to do this week is be focused on something other than healthcare. Now here's the good news. It's the good news according to Glenn, not to Jesus. But I'm not sure you recognize the good news according to Jesus. The good news according to Glenn is we're going to spend a lot of time talking about social justice in the coming days. Could happen at any time. So you just keep listening. But we're going to do it in a special way because I'm not going to help you sell books. We're going to do it in a special way. And we're, we're going to you are going to like it. You are going to like it a lot. You are going to like it a lot. So just stay with us, okay, Jim? And that goes for you at moveon.org and the Huffington Post, you just stay with us. You just keep listening because we've got some really, really special coming.


 

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
