GLENN: So this is why I wanted to, and I think now that we're on the air with it, Stu, it would be false advertising to say every 1,000 books Simon and Schuster is going to give the liberal colleges, liberal teachers, some of the liberal politicians, whatever a box of these books, and I think that's tremendous, a tremendous heartfelt donation from Simon and Schuster, to try to be able to set colleges and universities straight.

STU: See, and now all we have to do is, A, we have to figure out who we're sending them to.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And then B, we need to figure out how you're going to personalize each one.

GLENN: I would like the -- (laughing.) I'll try for the ones at Columbia. "Hey, dummies, read this one."

STU: When you're done with the Ahmadinejad speech.

GLENN: Yeah. When you're done kissing the butt of brutal dictators, give this a whirl. Can you imagine what they're going to say? Can you imagine -- I love some of their reviews in some of these, you know, liberal people that clearly haven't even read the book on the fine hobo.

STU: You're seeing where he --

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Well, they're saying what I say in the book -- never said anything like it. They say I say in the book that poor people are just lazy.

STU: No, I don't think that's in there. I'm pretty sure.

GLENN: I'm pretty sure, too. But can you imagine what they will do on the "Where's hobo" chart? It's like where's Waldo chart? It's tremendous. They will go crazy. Blood will shoot out of their eyes.

STU: The point being, though, that it's a very, very, very small percentage that's insanely overblown by the media all the time.

GLENN: No, here's the real point. What is it going to be like when I send Stu with the very first box of books to Columbia University library to make a donation to make sure this is on the library shelf?

STU: Do I get to bring a giant truck with the one box of books?

GLENN: No, but I can find a flack vest for you that you might need that. So here's what we should do. Should we set up a special address or just mail it to me?

STU: Yeah, just me@GlennBeck.com.

GLENN: Just e-mail me, me@GlennBeck.com if you would like to nominate a liberal library, some liberal university or, you know, maybe your kid is gone and, you know, just been indoctrinated. We'll go ahead, for every 1,000 books that we sell from hereon out, we'll donate a box of them.

STU: They are going to love it. I'm sure they are going to accept all the donations, too.

GLENN: And you know what? I want to hear your story. I want to hear why they should be nominated, why they should get the box, possibly what I should say in the dedication on the front flaps of the books.

STU: Maybe we can donate them in people's honor. Like if your kid goes to a college.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: And they get indoctrinated and you have a good story about it, we can donate the books in their honor.

GLENN: And that way it could be, you know, donated in the loving memory of, you know, your son or daughter's name, who had a clue before they attended this university and lost their soul.

STU: Something of that.

GLENN: Something like that.

STU: We're just, we're freestyling here. We're freestyling.

GLENN: Just thinking out loud. So if you'd do that, send it to me, me@GlennBeck.com and we'll start going through those tomorrow.

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!"
