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.

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.
