Glenn Beck: Elect McCain, return to slavery?



GLENN: By the way, did you see the New York Times article? They are now making Sarah Palin into blood just, she's bloodthirsty. She just wants everybody to die in a war. First she was too stupid. Then she was too much of a chick that was abandoning her children. Then she was again too stupid. Then she was a woman. Now she's bloodthirsty. And apparently Whoopi Goldberg is worried that if John McCain is elected, she's going to become a slave again. Here's John McCain and Whoopi Goldberg on the View.

GOLDBERG: I don't want to misinterpret what you're saying. Did you say you wanted strict constitutionalists?

GLENN: Stop, stop. The answer here, Whoopi is, yes, I do. Which means that the people change the Constitution. Through congress and the President, the people have to change the Constitution and then it goes directly to the states ratifying a change made to the Constitution that's different than changing the Constitution through the court system where a couple of people, maybe as many as four or five, set what the Constitution says and changes the Constitution. That's what a strict constitutionalist means. But what was your point again?

SENATOR McCAIN: No, I want people who interpret the Constitution of the United States the way our founding fathers envision for them to do.

GOLDBERG: Should I worry about being a slave, being returned to a slave? Because certain things returned to the Constitution that you had to change.

SENATOR McCAIN: I understand that, and I get it. Thank you.

GLENN: Stop. I don't understand your point. What is your point? You're stupid? You don't understand how the Constitution works? Some other things, some you know, some things had to change. Yeah, like when the Progressives decided that none of us could drink? Should that have changed? Oh, they went back and they corrected that one. They took it out.

You know the Constitution is a fantastic document. Do you know that they cannot take out any mistakes? Do you know that Prohibition still exists in the Constitution? Just the article repealing that article is also in there. So it's left with all of its mistakes, and I think it's left that way for a reason, so you can see, "Oh, yeah, we did that, didn't we? Yeah, that one didn't work out so well. Some things change in the Constitution. Thank goodness that thank goodness that we listen to these celebrities because wasn't it Cameron Diaz? Wasn't it Cameron Diaz that said that she was going to be raped?

STU: No. No, no, she would never she didn't say anything like that, Glenn. She was worried again, what happens in these all of a sudden celebrities become very concerned with the law around election time.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: As you can see, Whoopi very concerned that she may become a slave at any time, it could happen at any time. You remember 2004, of course, it was the draft could come back at any time.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: So it's slavery and the draft, if that's not enough to scare you, then there was Cameron Diaz back in 2004 who

GLENN: She said she was going to be raped or something.

STU: Yeah. She said I believe the quote was let's see. We have a voice now and we're not using it, and women have so much to lose. I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies. We could if you think that rape should be legal, then don't vote. So there's nothing to worry about if you don't vote Democrat.

GLENN: Right.

STU: It's just that rape, slavery and the draft. Outside of that if you believe these conservative scare mongers, but rape could be legal, slavery could be legal and the draft is coming back any day now. Any day that's coming back.

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!"
