Glenn Beck: The Tower of Babel like you've never heard it before

GLENN: So here it is. The Tower of Babel as most people know it is these people got together and the king said let's build a tower and it will reach the sky and it will reach heaven and then God got pissed off and came down and destroyed them, confused their language and they all scattered. That's really not the way the story goes, and it's important that you understand the story. It has affected us do you know that Bugs Bunny actually used to call Elmer Fudd Nimrod? And do you know why? He used to call Bugs Bunny was the one that really made Nimrod really popular because Bugs Bunny was the one that called Elmer Fudd Nimrod, Nimrod, Elmer Fudd was the hunter. He wasn't a king at first. He's first described in the in Genesis as a hunter, but not a hunter of animals. A hunter of men. A hunter of people. And the people, after Noah, they all, they get off the boat and they do what two and two do and they make four and six and et cetera, et cetera. And so then they repopulated the Earth. And they're all focused on God. And that's when the first time an oppressive government, the idea of a totalitarian leader comes to the forefront, and it's done by a hunter of men, Nimrod. And what he says is he gets together and he says to everybody, "Hey, let's build bricks." Why would you say let's build bricks? Does that sound like anything anybody would want to do? Let's build bricks? Oh, and then we're going to build a big tower and it will reach heaven.

If you were really somebody who was an electric speaker, you would say let's build a tower to heaven. Let's build this giant tower, and we're all going to work together on it. Now, what does the tower represent? The tower represents what we were talking about with, like, Elton John. His intentions are good. The average person wants to do the right thing. The average person wants to help the poor. They want to live in harmony. So if you give them a grand idea, people will do it and they'll do it for the right reasons. It's why I've said be careful on social justice. Social justice has been perverted. It is a perversion of the gospel. The gospel is go help. Not, "Let's get everybody together and build bricks. Oh, and we'll build a tower to the sky."

So what is the brick? Bricks especially I live in Connecticut. Stones, those great stone calls, they're all different and they are all made by God and they are all made differently. And when you build these stone walls or a foundation, all of our churches back in colonial days, they weren't bricks. They were all stones. Stones are all different and they are all made by God. The stones represent people. So do the bricks. Nimrod says let's make bricks. He's talking about people, let's make them all equal, let's make them all exactly the same. Because then everybody is equal, everybody will have the same and they will be interchangeable. And what did they use as mortar? In the ancient Hebrew, mortar, the word "Mortar" actually means "Materialism." So materialism. It's what holds the bricks together.

Let me ask you this question: What is holding us together as a nation? What's holding us together as a nation quite honestly for a long time has been our materialism. It has been, as Rabbi Lapin said last night on TV, "Hey, let's all just get together and watch the Super Bowl," but we watch for the commercials. That is what holds us together. What used to hold us together was our common history, our common love of God, our common understanding of freedom. We don't even understand freedom. We don't celebrate freedom anymore. It's all about materialism. If you take away our mortar of materialism, do the bricks stay together? What binds us? Our materialism is about to disappear. That's why we must replace and put real mortar between us. We must break ourselves out of what they're trying to build now and that is everyone is exactly the same. We're all the same. We're all bricks. No, we are not. We're all stones. And we can put ourselves together. And it is our common understanding of freedom and the Constitution and values and principles that bind us together and hold us together. That is the mortar.

Nimrod also is a guy who builds this up and he's building on a grand scale. Well, God comes down and he sees it, and according to Genesis he sees it. But there are two names for God. In the English Bible it's just God. But in the ancient Hebrew there's two names for God. One is the happy go lucky God. The other one is the, "you don't want to see me; I'm in a bad mood" God. The bad mood God is not the one that comes down to confuse people's language. The benevolent God does, the happy name for God. He's not punishing the people. He is setting the people freebie destroying the Tower of Babel, by confusing their language. Now, what does it mean that I language? Not the same, again in the ancient Hebrew. There's language and tongue. The tongue is the language, is what we would say is language. The language is the things that make them all the same. The languages are their tribal customs, their you know, it's like everybody being from New York City. It's different here. The language New Yorkers speak is different than the language that they speak in Iowa. And so what did he do? He came down and he confused their language to where they couldn't understand each other anymore. And they were scattered. And they became stones again and not bricks. At the same time one of the big enemies of Nimrod was Abraham. And Abraham brought back the idea that God exists, God is your master, not a king. And if you have that personal relationship with him, if you trust him and have a personal relationship with him, you will be fine.

One thing that Rabbi Lapin didn't talk about last night because we ran out of time that I think is wildly interesting is the oral traditions in the ancient Hebrew. Is that Nimrod used to wear a chain, a symbol around his neck. And it was a furnace. The ain't Gentry oral traditions also in Hebrew is that Moses came back and he was supposed to gather the ashes out of the Pharaoh's furnace and use them to start again. A furnace is something that you see all throughout the Bible, the image of a furnace. And it is always there with an oppressor. It is always there with a dictator. Throughout scripture, the furnace. The furnace was and I go back to George Bernard Shaw and the Fabian Society. You heap the world up. You cause that heat and then you can meld mold the world or man in a shape more truer to your heart's desire. That's what we're being put through now is a furnace. And it's going to get worse before it gets better. But remember the answer. The answer is, do not become a brick. We are not all alike. We were created differently. Just like every stone in the field is different. Each is unique and special. Man tries to make it into brick. So they are interchangeable and none of them are any different and each of them don't really matter or count. That is the lie.

I find it interesting, too, that furnaces are always I mean, everybody's always thrown into a fiery furnace, et cetera, et cetera. And that is the pattern to look for. That's the pattern. That's what the Bible is. It's a book of patterns. It's, look at this story. Oh, my gosh. People fall away from God. Somebody says, hey, let's do something really great, but I've got to make you all the same first. But then we'll build a tower to reach to the sky. And oppression starts. A fiery furnace, and it falls apart. It always falls apart. Story after story, time and time again. It's the same story. Isn't it interesting that even in the 20th century we see the same story. And with Hitler, if I asked you what is the image of the worst thing of Hitler, the ovens, the furnace is what comes to mind. If I ask you about Stalin, what is it that you think of, the images of Stalin, the images of the artwork of the regime? It's the hammer and the sickle. The sickle is the fire, but the hammer is the one that is standing with the giant iron furnace behind and they are pounding that molten steel into the shape closer to their heart's desire. Just look for the patterns, guys. Just look for the patterns. And the pattern right now is we are being molded into bricks. It's a lie. And they are using a tower to reach the sky. We're going to do it to help children. We're going to do it to help the planet. We're going to do it there's a video out today about on TheBlaze.com of a professor saying if you don't get involved to stop global warming, the blood will be on your hands. Just do this because we can build a tower to reach the sky if we just make everybody into a brick. And that is the story of Nimrod.

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."
