Glenn Beck: Dowd -- Where's George W. Bush on the Ground Zero mosque?

GLENN: All right. Maureen Dowd is now begging George W. Bush to speak up on the mosque. I love this story.

PAT: Yeah, I do, too. She says it's time for W to weigh in. And, you know, she refers to him as W out of sheer affection. You know she does.

GLENN: She wants him to weigh in on the mosque because she thinks that George W. Bush is going to agree with Barack Obama.

PAT: So that Obama's got a little bit of a cover. Because he's getting some flack.

GLENN: Why would you want cover from a guy who is too stupid to know

PAT: Right.

GLENN: exactly how to tie his own tie?

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

STU: That was they painted him as the dumbest man in America for eight years.

GLENN: No, no. No, no, let's put this into perspective. Let's not just say they did. People like what's his name on CNN that's how memorable he is Hawaii boy.

STU: Oh, Rick Sanchez?

GLENN: Rick Sanchez. Rick Sanchez says that he is one of the dumbest men alive.

STU: Does he?

GLENN: This guy, this guy.

SANCHEZ: How can you get a volcano in Iceland? Isn't it too when you think of a volcano, you think of, like, Hawaii and long words like that. You don't think of Iceland. You think it's too cold to have a volcano there.

PAT: That never gets old, never gets old.

GLENN: Just play it again.

SANCHEZ: I was just asking Chad, how can you get a volcano in Iceland? Isn't it too when you think of a volcano, you think of, like, Hawaii and long words like that. You don't think of Iceland. You think it's too cold to have a volcano there.

GLENN: Okay. So people like this say that George Bush is stupid. So why would you want I wouldn't, I would never call for Rick Sanchez to weigh in on anything, on anything. We could be doing a study on stupid people and I wouldn't think that he would have a valuable opinion on stupid people. So why would these people want George W. Bush to do that? Isn't that weird?

STU: It's always about politics.

GLENN: That's all it is. That's all it is.

STU: Maureen Dowd has been criticizing George W. Bush, you know, you know, just incredibly, it's been like her main job for the past 10 years. And now all of a sudden where she thinks she can get one little half a percent political point out of it, she's willing to bring him up as an example.

PAT: The hypocrisy is just, it's stunning. Eugene Robinson at the Washington Post is also looking for some help from George W. Bush. He says, I would love to hear from former president Bush on this issue. He held

GLENN: You didn't want to hear about anything from George W. Bush when he was in office!

PAT: He held Ramadan iftar dinners in the White House as part of a much broader effort to show that our fight against the Al Qaeda murderers who attacked us on 9/11 was not a crusade against Islam. He was absolutely right on this point, and it would be helpful to hear his views. Yes, wouldn't it be helpful?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: For Barack Obama, who got himself into hot water?

GLENN: Well, no, hang on just a second. That's assuming that George Bush wouldn't say, yes, they have a right to build a mosque, but let's look into the finances, let's look at where they are getting money, let's look at who this guy is. I mean, remember George Bush and Barack Obama not exactly in lockstep.

PAT: No. I'd love him I'd love for him to come out and sound off on the issue and then also sound, "While I'm at it, let me talk about the war, the way that's being prosecuted and ruined, the deficit, the deadification of America, the Social Security and the healthcare reform. Let me talk about some stuff."

GLENN: Social Security, remember everybody was saying that Social Security is collapsing? Barack Obama yesterday said there's no emergency.

STU: No crisis, yeah.

GLENN: There's no crisis in Social Security. I've got to get his dictionary, man. Because we don't speak the same language. I don't there's no crisis. Does crisis in his dictionary mean that there's no money? Crisis equal money? Because that's true. There is no money in Social Security.

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

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?
