Anti-Glenn Beck Haiku day



Auction: Signed copy of "We The People" mosaic from the Glenn Beck Studio

GLENN: I am so excited that I have been inspired by Jim Wallis who is an advocate of social justice which in the way that Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama or Jim Wallis mean it, it is Marxism and redistribution of wealth. I've been telling you earlier that the that Jim Wallis, a spiritual and political advisor to the president of the United States, has mounted a campaign, an ad campaign against me, and I think this one is his isn't an ad campaign, right? This is just a "Get the churches against Glenn Beck" campaign, "I think all Christians should boycott Glenn Beck." I haven't followed it that much, Jim. You are really not worth that much time.

Then Van Jones, his organization that he co founded, they started an advertiser boycott where I've lost 56,000 advertisers at this point at yet somehow or another I'm still on the air. It's weird.

Then the third one is now SEIU. They have now mounted a campaign against my advertisers and I'm thinking, wow, I don't think this I think this is history. I think yet again we will be in the history books that won't be written because, well, progressives write history books. But this is historic. I don't believe it has ever happened before where the president has three advisors target someone to try to put them out of business. I've never even heard of that. Well, I think Woodrow Wilson did that and then he put people in jail, too. But gee, Glenn, that's crazy talk. That's not where we're headed, is it?

So today this Jewish Funds For Justice, according to the Washington Post, is tweeting about me.

PAT: What kind of haikus do we have so far? I'm looking forward to some good

GLENN: Haikus?

PAT: haikus today because as it says in the Bible, I'm glad to see a religious group getting together to mock you all day because I think that's what religious groups should be about.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I am dumbfounded here's a haiku. Haiku against Glenn Beck is their

PAT: Wonder why they shows haikus.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me, haiku. I am dumbfounded we still are talking about Beck, an ill informed speck. Oh, that's

STU: I thought haikus specifically were not supposed to rhyme.

PAT: They are not. I don't think they are.

GLENN: Whatever you do to the least of my brothers you do unto me.

STU: You know what's a really terrible format is a haiku. That's awful.

GLENN: Nazis and commies were not exactly big church people anyway. Wow.

STU: Awful.

PAT: This is working well.

GLENN: Nazi/commie church, bet they have real sharp outfits, mitre and jackboots.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: If Beck had his way, all the churches would go away, God lonely Sunday.

STU: God lonely Sunday.

GLENN: This is helping your cause? Oh, my goodness.

STU: Which Keith Olbermann writer wrote that? That's fantastic. God

GLENN: No, that one was from George Soros.

STU: God forgive you.

GLENN: But anyway, what they are trying to do is trying to take me down because now, I mean, think of this. Think of this. What we have what we have been saying is we have radical revolutionaries, Marxists, and anticapitalists. Right? Andy Stern, SEIU, workers of the world unite, it's time for businesses to understand that it's time now to share the wealth. Those are the words of Andy Stern. Bare minimum anticapitalist.

Marxist, Jim Jones, redistribution of wealth. That is absolutely what the gospel is all about. He tells a story, do we have the audio of him telling the story?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: About when he went to meet, I don't know, Dorothy

PAT: Dorothy Day.

GLENN: Dorothy Day. And she was a radical and anyway, so listen to the story.

VOICE: When my story happened in Chicago, she was just leaving as we were coming on the scene. So we were living in Chicago. I went to Trinity Seminary, we were living in uptown, I get a call one day from a priest. And Dorothy Day opened a Catholic border house on Kenmore up on the north side. She wants to meet you; do you have time. Do I have time? We had one community car, was always broken, and so I ran, you know, 20 blocks. And I'm in the parlor of the Catholic worker and in walks the great lady. Dorothy wrote a book about her life called Love is the Measure, but she wasn't ever soft. Very tough. So you're a radical student like me, right? You are a Marxist like me, right? Yeah. And now you're a Catholic. I said, well, I'm a Christian.

PAT: I love that of the three he will not cop to Catholicism.

GLENN: I'm not a Catholic! I'm a radical Marxist!

PAT: Yes, I'm a Marxist but, no, no, I'm not a Catholic, no. No, I'm a Christian.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: I love that!

GLENN: All right. So there you go. And then the third one that is mounting the attack is a communist! A radical communist who has in the past called for, you know, a revolution in the country. I mean, you've got to be kidding me! You've got to be kidding me!

PAT: The great capitalism, that whole thing that we're moving away from great capitalism, eco capitalism.

GLENN: And white people, whites and companies are poisoning minority neighborhoods. I mean, it's

PAT: On purpose.

GLENN: It's incredible, it's incredible. Redistribute the wealth, give them the wealth, give them the wealth. I mean, so it's incredible that nobody in the media will report on this, but you know the truth.

Now, while they're doing that, I would like to show, I would like to show what real charity is like. So help me make this example, will you? I told you a couple of days ago that we were selling a set piece from the show for the 8/28 Restoring Honor program I'm going to be doing on August 28th at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I invite you and your family to be there. This thing is going to cost probably, it's estimated between $1 1/2 and $2 million to pull off. So I've asked for your help making donations to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and this event. Because when I think of honor, I think of George Washington and I think about special operations, I think about our military. They are the only people that I believe in anymore really. And so we were going to raise awareness for them and hopefully we'll have some money to donate to them as well. Special Operations Warrior Foundation, specialops.org if you'd like to donate, okay? If you don't, that's fine. I've been starting an auction. The first auction is up on Upillar and we're auctioning off the 8 or the 9/12 project poster that was on my set forever. This is the original piece that we made to convince you that you weren't alone. The auction ends on Friday. It is currently at $20,000. It's 8 feet by 8 feet. I mean, I don't know where you're going to put this thing. I mean, probably a restaurant or a business or something. But it's 8 feet by 8 feet, and it is a piece of American history now. It was on the set of this show, like it or hate it, this show played a role in the last year of America. Okay.

I was going to announce on Monday but I'm going to announce today because I just think this is so great that this haiku war is going on. You keep doing your haiku war. That's good. Here's what I'm going to do. On Monday and I'll give you all the details. If you're watching the television show, you've seen it in the background, I unveiled it recently. If you are watching on the Insider Extreme and Dom, if you can, get shots of the three, faith, hope and charity. These are and so are on the television show, these are copies of paintings that I and Paula Hawkins have done. This is an idea that I had, I don't even know when, maybe around Thanksgiving and I started with the George Washington Hope. And then we did Faith with Samuel Adams and Charity with Ben Franklin. And I'll tell you why some other time why I picked these three people but it's pretty obvious. This is the original painting. Now, these are currently hanging in my office. This is the original painting of the Charity, and there are three of them. And Stu, if you can go in and shoot these in my office later today and put them up for Insider Extreme or have somebody make a package of this, but this is the original painting and these are I mean, I think the posters are nice, but I think the paintings are stunning, don't you? I mean, the texture on the painting and everything else, these are really stunning paintings and they're, what is that, about three feet by two feet? These you can hang and I mean, I'd hang them in my house. They're beautiful, beautiful paintings. Here's what I'm going to do. On Monday I am auctioning off the original set, and I'm going to reserve the right to sell them as individuals or as a cluster because they may get more money as individuals and so I'm going to you can bid on them two ways, as individuals or a cluster. And here's what I'm going to do. Hope is George Washington. Hope comes from truth. It comes from honor. If you have honor and integrity and you tell the truth. There will be hope. So to restore honor, all of the proceeds from the George Washington painting will go to Restoring Honor, 8/28, the event that we're going to do in front of the Lincoln Memorial in August.

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!"
