Muslim day at Six Flags: on 9/12

GLENN: We wanted to start with the beach music because it's Muslim Day at Six Flags and this is an argument we had in the hallway. Well, I shouldn't say we. All of us in the entire Mercury compound had an argument against Joe, my chief researcher. He's like, it's a private company; they can do whatever they want. Yes, Joe, we're not really arguing that. "It's a private company. They can have Muslims anytime they want." Yes, they can.

PAT: We know, Joe.

GLENN: We know. They're a private company. For now, they're a private company and they can do whatever they want. "Yeah, that's right, they can do whatever they want." Yes. What we're arguing here is maybe Muslim Day with all of the kiddies and the, you know, the dragon, you know, floaties around them going to the water park might be in bad taste on 9/12. "They're a private company, though." I know. "What, you wouldn't be, you wouldn't be holding them out if it was another religion." No. I think I would be if the Amish, if it would have been a pack of Amish that took wagon trains and drove them into the World Trade Center and their carriages exploded.

PAT: The extremist Amish are it's a frightening group, frightening group.

GLENN: I think I would say it's bad taste to have, you know, horse and buggy day on 9/12. I think I would have been might be bad.

STU: Their use of explosive butter was it was devastating.

PAT: Their churns are quite explosive with the right mixture inside.

GLENN: Abraham, what are you doing? Why, Jedediah, I am just mixing the chemicals for the explosive in our butter churn.

PAT: What is thou doing?

GLENN: (Laughing). Oh, my gosh.

STU: You'd think at the very least a large corporation like this would sit back and say, "Look, you know, I don't think anyone has any problem with having a day. I think it's fine."

PAT: It's fine. Today.

GLENN: Today. Muslim day for a whole week, I don't really care.

PAT: July 20th.

STU: It seems impossible that they would not realize that this would fire some people up and you wonder why they did it.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Like why wouldn't you pick, you know, July 14th or whatever it was, you know. It seems like they made that specifically for a choice and you wonder as a large corporation, they couldn't have been so oblivious of this that they didn't notice.

PAT: There's no way. Not if they're Americans. Come on. The sensibilities, that's what we it's the same thing we had with the mosque at Ground Zero.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Opening, the grand opening on 9/11 next year, the 10 year anniversary. I mean, it's just and then you find out all these things about the imam here.

GLENN: Well, what do we know about Six Flags? Do we know anything about Six Flags?

STU: It's a huge corporation that's had some financial troubles.

GLENN: Who owns the huge corporation? Who owns it?

PAT: Saudis. I don't know.

STU: You are just making stuff up.

PAT: Just making stuff up.

GLENN: That sounds you know in today's world?

PAT: Yemenis.

GLENN: Come to our yack park. The rides are so wild, your kids will be yacking at our yack park, the Yemeni yack! Don't talk back! That would be great! We'll have a jingle: Yemeni yack, don't talk back. I'm opening it in the sands of Saudi Arabia.

PAT: They like it. And then they can have the argument, hey, how can an American open up over here?

GLENN: How come why are they having American day on July 4th?

PAT: Hey.

GLENN: Hey.

PAT: The day they invaded Afghanistan! Wait!

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Seriously think about it flipped around like that. If an American corporation were to do something that insensitive, it would never happen. It would never, ever happen.

GLENN: On the day that they on the day that we invaded Iraq, imagine going over and having, at their water park, American day at their water park. You think?

PAT: You think there would be

GLENN: You think there would be anybody here in America that wouldn't say, "Guys, I think that's a bad that's in bad taste. That's in bad taste." We wouldn't do it.

PAT: Never.

GLENN: Because that wouldn't be our intention to stick a stick in their eye.

STU: Especially as a look, the bottom line is

GLENN: Which, bottom line is, I'm bringing up the stick in the eye. I don't know if

PAT: Oh, boy, here we go. Are we doing it?

GLENN: I don't

STU: If this is where it's going, please.

GLENN: Please. I don't know. I saw a lot of I saw a lot of blogs yesterday. A lot of people are speculating on my possible loss of vision. In fact, I think it goes further than that. It's total and complete blindness. And they're speculating now that I may be just faking my eye condition as a ratings ploy, and I have to tell you, you got me. There's nothing more exciting than listening or watching to someone who is slowly, over his lifetime, possibly going blind.

PAT: Are you willing to turn over your medical records? Can we take a look at the examination? You said you took a bunch of tests. Let's see em!

GLENN: (Laughing).

PAT: Can we see the spots of discoloration on your retina?

GLENN: May I just answer that?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Sure. You can see them, but I can't.

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Well, possibly someday down the road. All right. So anyway, you were saying, Stu? We were talking about? Muslim Day at Six Flags.

STU: I think, you know, like, for example, I doubt there will be many people in what was the example? Afghanistan or Iraq that would make the argument, "Well, that wasn't normal Americans didn't attack us. It was that evil George Bush and I think maybe it's okay."

GLENN: Normal American?

STU: But I think we would make the argument here, we would make the allowance that look, you know, a normal Muslim family it's Muslim families day, normal Muslim families did not bring down the World Trade Centers.

GLENN: Let me ask you something.

STU: But you think as a large corporation you'd understand some sensitivities and you just wonder why you'd pick that weekend of all weekends to put it there. I mean, are you just asking for controversy?

GLENN: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I can't imagine that in 1948 they would have had Japanese Day at the water park on December 8th.

STU: Yes, it would be probably would not have occurred.

GLENN: Like, now, I don't think that's really and I you know what? Well, I know this to be true because what Barack Obama says he's fighting against, only the progressive FDR and Woodrow Wilson did. The Japanese wouldn't have done it because they were afraid the progressives would round them up, again! So they wouldn't have so they wouldn't have done it. But I can't even imagine a Japanese family thinking that would have been in good taste. I can't imagine being a Muslim and thinking, "You know what? Honey, let's get in the car." I think it would be in poor taste. You don't think now, maybe, now maybe me because I just don't sometimes you are like, "This is a guy thing." Really? I never thought of it that way. But the Muslim women have got to be like, you know, like my wife. Wouldn't your wife say, "We are not going to the that's in poor taste. It's the day after the anniversary of 9/11."

STU: Well, here's an example. Let's say they did a let's say there was a terrorist attack and it was some crazy Tea Party extremist guy and then, you know, a few years later the day after that attack they have Tea Party day at Six Flags.

GLENN: Let's do this. Let's do this. Let's say that Timothy McVeigh because Oklahoma City. Do you think that you would have tyrants be damned day at the amusement park in Oklahoma? I mean

STU: Because we would argue, hey, look, we had nothing to do, that's a nut job but still you understand the sensitivities there.

GLENN: You have eight or nine years, would you have, eight or nine years after Oklahoma City and you were still engaging in terrorist activity, there were still terrorists happening around the country and the world by the group of people that, you know, Timothy McVeigh would have been in, okay? Do you think you would have anyone at all that was associated with that group? Even if they say we're not Tea Parties are a great is a great example. I hate Timothy McVeigh. I don't think anybody glorifies Timothy McVeigh. I've never met anybody that glorifies Timothy McVeigh. The guy was a killer. But I don't think in Oklahoma City it would be a good idea to have, you know, a big water park day.

STU: Yeah, militia day or something at the water park.

GLENN: Yeah, militia day, better than the Tea Party. It's militia party.

STU: A lot of militia members would be like, wait a minute, we had nothing to do with that.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: But still you would understand the sensitivities. Especially as a big company you'd understand them. Maybe the members of the group might not pick that up but I mean, if you are a big company and you know this is going on, especially, again, on something that's known for the date. I mean, Oklahoma City, you know, people know it as Oklahoma City bombing. This is known as the date. It's known as 9/11.

GLENN: Yeah, you could easily say like 8/28, I didn't know that was the "I Have a Dream" speech day. But everyone will remember 8/28, coming down the road everyone will remember 8/28 not necessarily with Martin Luther King but they will remember it for what we're doing because it's the day. You can easily, I have no idea the day of Oklahoma do you know the day that Oklahoma City was bombed?

STU: April, right? 19th, 20th?

PAT: I think, somewhere in there.

GLENN: Okay, so you're better than me. You know why I don't know that?

STU: Oh, is this going to happen every day?

PAT: I hope so.

GLENN: As long as it drives the left crazy, I'll do it every day twice a day a hundred times a day. The more they hate it, the more I'm going to do it. I may have to have I may tonight I may have to take an eye test on air. I could schedule it at a different time, but I and it's painful! Sure, they don't stick anything in my eyes or anything like that. I just have to look at a card but... (sobbing), oh, the pain! The pain!

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"And so, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

(Left) Image source: video screenshot/ (right) Photo by Marcus Ingram/Getty Images

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
