Love the Mosque, hate the Cross

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

There is a -- there is an Arab, Arabic school that they are trying to open here in Manhattan, and it will only speak Arabic. All right. I was going to say I don't have a problem with that but yet again, I do. I would have a problem with a Spanish speaking school or, you know, one that only spoke Canadian. You know, I would like an English-speaking school, please. You're in America.

Now, the argument in New York has been that we need more Arabic-speaking people to be able to, you know, confront the future, et cetera, et cetera. Fine. Offer a class in Arabic. Encourage kids to take Arabic. Don't have a problem with that. It's called a language class. Why would we start, especially when there's a shortage of people that speak Arabic, why would we start in the middle of a war with those who speak Arabic and most don't understand Arabic, why would we start an all-Arabic school? Doesn't sound like a good idea, especially when you can't really find out any information on it. You can't find out a damn thing about this school, and it's being paid for by taxpayer money.

And then when you have the principal who will not go on the record about who was responsible for 9/11, you have a principal that will not say Hamas or Hezbollah is a terrorist organization, will not condemn some of the things that Saudi Arabia has done and the reason why that's important. Any time that you run into somebody who says, hey, we just all want to get along, you ask them, will you condemn Saudi Arabia? Will you say that the Saudi Arabian government is involved in wahabiism and spreading this and this should not be spread? Will you say that on the record? If they don't answer, you know that most likely they are in league with wahabiism or get some of their financing from Saudi Arabia. It's a critical question and unfortunately nobody will ask that question of people who just won't answer it. But you have this principal who won't answer that question.

Now, fortunately there have been a group of people who have been demonized here in New York City as just nothing but hatemonger because they hate all Arabs. I guess that's what it is. It's a group of concerned parents and moms who said, excuse me, this is not a good idea here in New York City or any place unless we know exactly who's involved and what they stand for and the course is approved and is all in the open.

Well, Pamela Hall, who I've had on the program before, she photographed T-shirts that were being made that say Intifada NYC. They are sold by an organization, Arab women active in the art and media. Intifada media. This organization shares office space in Brooklyn with the association that is -- that the principal works for. Got it? So they are in the same office.

Now, she is also a board member and a spokesperson for this organization that shares office space with Infitada NYC. The T-shirts are calling for a Palestinian uprising in the five boroughs. Now, her explanation has been that it just means shaking off. They had a photograph of these T-shirts. They had the link to her office space. And I know it's a shaky link but it was enough to have her step forward and say, okay, well, let me explain these T-shirts. It just means, shaking off. You just shake things off. You shake New York City off? This is a good idea? This is even -- this is even smart to do? Just because of the implications of what people might think it means? I mean, it just shows, at the very least, a lack of common sense in this individual. She's resigned. She's resigned. She's no longer going to be the principal, but the school hasn't stopped.

Now, here's where I find -- here's what I find very interesting. The Department of Education has not responded to requests for information on the curricula or why the school board has a religious advisory board. Believe it or not, there are, on their advisory board there are clerics, Muslim clerics for this school. Now, here's the question I have. Louisiana, there's the courtroom in Louisiana is hearing a case now from the ACLU as they threaten a lawsuit to take the cross out of the courtroom in Louisiana. Can't have it. ACLU's on it.

In Connecticut there's a lawsuit because public schools were using a cathedral for its graduation ceremony. And yet in New York they're creating an Arabic public school which has several religious clerics on the advisory board. I don't even understand that. That's like having a school that is teaching Gaelic and having the cardinal from St. Patrick's cathedral on the advisory board. You don't think the ACLU would have a problem with that?

Now let me tie into something else the ACLU also doesn't have a problem with. In Michigan, in the university of -- is it the University of Michigan? I want to make sure I get this right. The University of Michigan, they are now -- they are installing foot baths because it's a Muslim ritual to have foot baths to wash your feet. Are you out of your mind? Well, why don't we just put the little -- what do you call the little water containers when you walk into a Catholic church, to cross yourself with holy water? Why can't we put those in every campus in America? Do you think the ACLU would stand for that? There was just a little container of holy water inside the door of every university? Of course not.

It's beyond political correctness. It's one thing to not want to offend people. It's one thing to say, look, man, you know, you want to practice your religion, practice your religion. But the idea is that we're all supposed to come together and blend together. It's one thing to have a school that specializes in different things, but in today's world when you have questions that are out there, you've got to answer these questions. I'm sorry, but it only makes things worse. It only makes us distrust each other even more. You must have an open door policy. The Department of Education must answer these questions: Why is it we have an Arabic school; why is it that clerics are allowed to be on the supervisory committee; do we have people that are -- who are the teachers; who are the principals; where do they stand on 9/11; are they more from the ilk of Rosie O'Donnell who says the United States government did it; what is the curricula? Those answers aren't coming, but at least the principal is no longer involved and it's only because a few people were willing to be called hatemongers, even though they're not.

END TRANSCRIPT

Former senior COVID adviser for the Biden administration Andy Slavitt suggested Americans should have "sacrificed a little bit more" to get through the pandemic during an interview with CBS' "This Morning" earlier this week.

Asked by host Tony Dokoupil how much of the pandemic was preventable, Slavitt responded by first blaming the Trump administration, then all Americans in general for not sacrificing enough.

"We obviously had a set of technical mistakes with the testing and the PPE that we know about. But if we're honest, there were also two other mistakes, that caused a lot of loss of life. One was just plainly political leadership mistakes. We denied the virus for too long under the Trump White House. There was too much squashing under divisions," Slavitt said.

"But I also think we all need to look at one another and ask ourselves, 'What do we need to do better next time?' And in many respects, being able to sacrifice a little bit for one another to get through this and to save more lives is going to be essential. And it's something that I think we could all have done a little bit better on," he continued.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck had more than a few fiery words for Slavitt, who is apparently unaware of the terrible toll this pandemic has had on the mental, physical, and emotional health of millions of Americans.

"We could have sacrificed a little bit more?" he asked. "So, the sacrifice of [nearly] 40% of all businesses now being closed, I mean permanently out of business ... was that sacrifice good enough? Or the fact that teen suicide now is up by 31%? A few more of us should have sacrificed our children, you know, throw them up on the altar of Anthony Fauci? I think we could have done it, right?"

"Go to hell," Glenn added. "Who do you think you are, telling us that we should sacrifice more?"

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.
