Glenn Beck: Hatchet job by ABC's GMA

Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

GLENN: If you can play a little bit of ABC this morning, I was I was actually doing stage blocking today for the event to kind of show everybody, you know, and work with the directors on exactly how, you know, I wanted things to go. And I'm there early, early this morning and then I see a camera and all the lights and everything out in the mall and they were taking pictures, and I'm like, huh, I wonder who that is, must be a local. I didn't know that it was ABC Good Morning America. And it was Claire Shipman. And Claire Shipman

PAT: She's good.

GLENN: You guys should be ashamed of yourself. You should be ashamed of yourself.

PAT: It's nothing but a leftwing hatchet job.

GLENN: I mean, it's amazing.

STU: There are some good examples there if you want to really understand in a nutshell how these people do these reports.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: It's very specific. This is how they do it. A great example here.

GLENN: Let's go.

PAT: Go through it.

GLENN: This is case study of hatchet jobs. Here it is.

VOICE: There's a lot of emotions swirling over this issue. Remember it wasn't so long ago that Glenn Beck called President Obama a racist. So his choice of timing to hold his rally here tomorrow, a surprise to say the least.

PAT: For whom? First of all, it was almost a year ago.

STU: It was more than a year ago.

GLENN: More than a year ago.

PAT: More than a year ago. So it was quite a while ago, Hon, and it's been covered over and over.

GLENN: Huh?

PAT: A Hon or a Puddin'.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: It's been over a year, Puddin'. Seriously.

STU: Seriously.

PAT: Get over it.

GLENN: No, wait. We've already talked about it. We've addressed it.

PAT: We've addressed it a million times. Thousands of reasons.

GLENN: A million times.

STU: Thousands of hours of broadcast since that comment.

PAT: We've gone over the reasons for saying it then, you've changed your position a little bit now because you said

GLENN: Well, no, no.

PAT: You've learned more about him.

GLENN: I've learned more about him.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: And it's not it's just not out of the hand race. That's not what he does. He sees America as an oppressor. It is his liberation theology that leads him to make the decision.

PAT: Where do you get that he's a liberation theologist?

GLENN: Definitely not from the Christian Science Monitor but from his own churches.

PAT: Like what? What evidence do you have that he's ever even heard liberation theology?

GLENN: The words that he said, the fact that he said in several speeches, the fact that he sat there for 20 years, that all of the preachers around him

PAT: His liberation theology church.

GLENN: Yeah. All the preachers that are around him and that have advised him are liberation theology guys. But other than that

PAT: Pfleger, Jeremiah Wright, we suspect Jim Wallis has some of that going on.

GLENN: Well, he's a Marxist.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: He's a Marxist. And by the way, Marxism and God don't usually go together. In fact, ever.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Anyway

PAT: So that's just the beginning.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: But it's a surprise, to say the least.

KING: I have a dream.

VOICE: Immortal words of unity. But the 47th anniversary of Dr. King's speech is producing just the opposite.

GLENN: Blacks don't own this is amazing Martin Luther King.

VOICE: Glenn Beck is no Martin Luther King.

GLENN: Stop, stop. This is amazing.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Because there is no comma in that sentence.

STU: No.

GLENN: There's no period there. There's no comma. The sentence is do you have it?

STU: I have it right here.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: Remember this is what ABC's audience thinks you said now. They say you said blacks don't own Martin Luther King, period, and this is a controversial comment. Here's the full context: Whites don't own Abraham Lincoln. Blacks don't own Martin Luther King. Those are American icons, American ideas. And we should just talk about character and that's what this event is about. It's about honoring character.

PAT: That's are the same people

GLENN: That is unbelievable.

PAT: Unreal.

GLENN: I mean, that is you know what? I'm going to get a lot of heat for this, but stand in line. That's what Goebbels did. That's what Goebbels did. The truth didn't matter.

STU: No. Well

GLENN: Now, the only thing they haven't done and Soros' people have done, the only thing they haven't done is put signs calling me a racist and tight edit them in there so it's almost subliminal which Soros' people and I think it was moveon or Media Matters did. They are doing that. You know, and the only thing left is to just, quick, edit vermin, rats, every time you talk about me.

STU: There's no other explanation for this other than propaganda. I mean, that

GLENN: That is unbelievable propaganda.

PAT: These are the same people who had such a conniption fit, and they should, over Shirley Sherrod being Shirley Sherroded. These are the same people who are so indignant and angry over the fact that Shirley Sherrod was taken out of context which we did not do to her, by the way. We supported her from the beginning. And these are the same people doing it to you now. What hypocrites!

STU: What decision what's the decision making process?

PAT: Unbelievable.

STU: When you are sitting in an edit room and you see that the previous sentence is whites don't own Abraham Lincoln, the next one is blacks don't own Martin Luther King, those are American icons, that is a unifying statement. You are saying that these people were not about color. They're just great people.

GLENN: No, no, no, no.

PAT: And they use it for the opposite.

GLENN: No, no, you have to.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Because the premise of the story is

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: "I have a dream."

STU: And you're ruining it.

GLENN: Unifying words. But what's happening this weekend is anything but.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Excuse me? Only if you edit my sentence.

STU: Yeah. What's the decision? Who's making a call like that? Who's sitting in the edit room and saying

GLENN: Progressives.

STU: Yeah, exactly. Only people that want to smear you. There's no way you would leave the rest of that comment out if you actually cared about the truth. It is blatant propaganda. Horrible job by ABC and Claire Shipman.

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!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
