Your History Is Being Rewritten





Watch "Glenn Beck" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel

Oh, the hate is flowing in America today —especially in Arizona.

It's like the river of slime from "Ghostbusters II," oozing underneath the surface, infecting everything. Here's how Rep. Jared Polis described the mood in Arizona: "It is absolutely reminiscent of second class status of Jews in Germany prior to World War II when they had to have their papers with them at all times and were subject to routine inspections at the suspicion of being Jewish... I fear that Arizona is headed for a police state."

Arizona is really putting the AZ in Nazi, aren't they?

I hate to rain on the hate parade here, but can we please slow down for just a minute and, I don't know, think?

You are comparing the systematic, cold-blooded, extermination of millions of Jews to America making sure people are here legally. The parallels are... nonexistent. It's like deja vu. I can envision some sort of equivalent to the Holocaust museums already in the works to document the horrors of Arizona's immigration law. I'm sure Abe Foxman at the Anti-Defamation League is working on a press release right now, to make sure that he commends Jared Polis for pointing out how much illegal immigration is like the extermination of 6 million Jews.

If only the media would read their own stories; here's one from the Associated Press: The law "makes it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally."

Got it? A crime. To be here illegally. Maybe that's how O.J. got off, because California hadn't made illegal murder illegal yet.

This is a news story how exactly?

Oh, but the story continues, adding that police could "question people about their immigration status... if they suspect someone is in the country illegally."

That sentence may as well have been the sound of goosesteps — same exact thing. Or, just to play devil's advocate here, at some point along your free ride (courtesy of American taxpayers), if you arouse suspicion, you may be asked for your Green Card.

We are the only country that devalues our citizenship. You want to talk about race riots and illegal immigration? In France they rioted over legal immigration.

Oh, those crazy people on the right! Oh wait, it's the left. Yet, here's how the networks have reported it:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Riot police were called in to try and control demonstrators protesting outside the capital. Most were peaceful. A handful threw bottles at police and were arrested.

KATIE COURIC: Anger in Arizona against a new law allowing police to make you prove you're in the country legally.

UNIDENTIFIED PROTESTER: They're just focusing on us because we're brown.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Oh, the poor, unfortunate undocumented worker! Where is our compassion? Why don't we just let them stay?

Got it? The people breaking the law are the victims, according to the networks. Now, let's look at how the same networks have covered another big rally: the Tea Parties. Look harmless, right? And they aren't breaking any laws that we know of. How are they portrayed?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

CRAIG VAROGA, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: Their extremism, they're, you know, I mean, either looking the other way or encouraging harassment and violence is actually not only coarsening American life, it's putting people in danger.

REP. ALAN GRAYSON, D-FLA.: There have been all sorts of efforts to incite violence by the right-wing. And that's the way the right-wing operates.

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NANCY PELOSI, D-CALIF.: I saw this myself in the late '70s in San Francisco. This kind of rhetoric is — was very frightening and it gave — it created a climate in which we, violence took place.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

The script doesn't seem to match the video.

But neither does this: Do you remember all the violence at the WTO in 1999? Smoke bombs. Riot police. Here's how Bill Clinton responded: "I don't think anybody in America should take what a few violent people did as in anyway representative of the community or of the people who are here in peaceful protest."

Wow, I'd sure like him to give that same break to the Tea Parties.

Something else also popped up at the Arizona rallies: A swastika made out of refried beans. That's outrageous (and probably tasty); I'm sure — in fact, I'm 100 percent certain — that Nancy Pelosi is outraged at this because remember, this is how she feels about swastikas being used:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PELOSI: I think they are Astroturf. You be the judge. They're carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Well said, Nancy. Well said. When she finally comes out shaking and crying about the kind of rhetoric she's hearing at the illegal immigration rallies, we'll be the first to bring that to you. Sure it'll be along any minute now.

Then you have Obama's Chicago buddy Bill Ayers, founder of the domestic terrorist group the Weather Underground, parading around TV explaining to sympathetic "journalists" that his group wasn't a terrorist organization. Now he's claiming this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BILL AYERS: We were never a terrorist organization. And that is because we never threatened to kill people, we never killed people.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Bill, just because you were a crappy terrorist group, doesn't mean you weren't a terrorist group. It was by the grace of God that you didn't kill anyone at the Pentagon and Capitol buildings. And what about the members of his group who robbed an armored truck in 1981 and murdered two police officers and a security guard? I'm not an expert, but that sounds like "killing someone."

But now, Ayers is a respected intellectual. How are this man and his group not reviled? History is being rewritten before your very eyes. And how is that possible? When Time magazine did their 2009 year in pictures, they had pictures of koala bears and dust — but no Tea Parties.

They are doing their best to erase history. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Write a journal. Get a video recorder. Have a diary. Because you sure don't want to be depending on the media for any of this stuff.

When your great grandchildren look back on 2009, they'll know how tender Barack and Michelle's first dance was, but they'll have no idea there even was a Tea Party. And we'll know all about this illegal immigration rally against the hateful racists.

Look, this new Arizona law was not made so cops could start sweeping the city like the Gestapo — papers please! It's not designed so cops can pull you over because you "look illegal."

Some are saying this law is unconstitutional because it's the federal government's responsibility to deal with foreign nations and thus illegals. That's for the court to decide.

But that doesn't answer exactly what it is the protesters are upset about here. The good congressman Jared Polis is afraid of a "police state." Well, we have lawmaker asking for the National Guard to be the police for Chicago, Illinois — a literal army to defend the citizens. Yet no one says a word.

If they wanted a police state, believe me, they could get it. But they don't. Yet, somehow, we are supposed to believe this law will cause cops to start banging down doors? You know what stops a police state? The smallest government possible. That's what the Tea Parties are about: the smallest possible government. Progressive governments create the apparatus, just in case there's an emergency you'd hate to waste.

The news doesn't reflect common sense or what is actually going on.

Obama himself just passed a health care bill that forced people to buy health care and he pushed for harsh punishments for those who refused. So, in other words, the federal government will ask for verification of your health insurance, but the same government can't ask for your legal information?

Am I in "Alice in Wonderland"?

Watchdogs, no one in media will rescue you. You have to be our eyes and ears.

I want you to go to this website: defendeducation.org and want you to click on the affiliated organizations. These are socialist, communist, Marxist organizations and I guarantee that some of these same folks are organizing protests in Arizona. If you are in a union and your union is organizing to split us apart, please e-mail becktips@foxnews.com.

We aren't the "papers please!" people. We are also not the country that allows anyone to come in and break the law and take jobs at slave wages and live off the backs of taxpayers and get free health care in emergency rooms and then send the kids to school and even demand classes in Spanish.

Who are we? We're the country that sits at the table and tries to work things out. But when our very existence is at stake, what other choices are there? Give me the other option. Ignore it? Hope it goes away? Make everyone a citizen?

I remember the first time I went to an AA meeting in New Haven, Connecticut. It can be a dicey city — I mean, Yale? Yeah, it's dicey. So, I'm downtown and this meeting has some rough-looking people: tattoos, no teeth, hard-core drug users. I was thinking to myself, "I don't belong here. This isn't who I am." But I stayed. I eventually realized that yes, the toothless, tattooed drunk was exactly who I allowed myself to become because I didn't put the bottle down after the first drink. Did I fall as far as them? By the grace of God, no. It all depends on when you stop. The longer we let things go, the harder it is to get back to who you were.

I'm not asking to do anything against the Constitution. I'm not saying stop people randomly and say, "Hey, you look illegal!" I mean, what does it look like to be illegal? But if you are stopped for another reason? Expect to show your license and Green Card. If I'm stopped that's the first thing they say to me. But the federal government is bleeding our states dry because they are failing to do their duty. They are forcing states to fend for themselves and commit financial suicide. They can't afford this!

Forget about financial suicide — what about safety? The drug dealers are getting more brazen. Prominent rancher Robert Krentz was on his 35,000 acre ranch when he encountered an illegal alien. He was shot dead.

Do you know where the kidnap capital of America is? Phoenix, Arizona. Do you know what the No. 2 kidnap capital of the world is? Phoenix, Arizona. I wonder if that's on the travel brochure? They'll tell you it's just the illegals being kidnapped. Are we supposed to care less?

There are reportedly 460,000 illegal aliens living in Arizona. Again, we're not the "show me your papers" country. But we are a nation of laws. We used to be known around the globe as a nation of equal justice, not social justice. That's why people flee their crap-hole countries on rafts in shark-infested waters to get here.

If immigrants wanted a government that only applied laws to special interests, the connected or the corrupt, they'd stay away. But they're coming here because we have a rule of law.

Enforce the law equally.

Not only do we hurt the rest of the country by allowing this epidemic to continue, we hurt immigrants even more. They are slaves living in the shadows here. We must stop it. Before we turn ourselves into exactly the kind of country they fled in the first place.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
