Glenn Beck Program April 27, 2011

There is an in-studio audience today.
  • Glenn showed a book, “The Holy Experiment”.
    • Only 500 copies printed in 1920.

Threats to the Economy
  • The Fed held its first ever press conference.
  • Gas, food and the stock market are all going up because the Fed is printing money.
  • No one is saying anything about this.
  • He showed a quote from Stephen Lerner, SEIU executive, on his plans to bring down the stock market and the banking system.
  • Glenn asks why the apathy?  Considering the entire economy would be affected, why is there no coverage of this?
  • Glenn then showed a video of a teacher discussing the most effective way to introduce Marxism into the classroom.
  • Another video was of a Revolutionary Socialist speaker saying they need to get younger and younger members into the organization – even down into high school age.
  • He showed a video of an elementary school class chanting an anti-capitalist chant.
  • Then, a video of Eric Holder saying that we are a “nation of cowards” in regards to race.
  • Glenn said that we would need to stand up and show courage in the future.
  • Glenn then showed a video of a man at a Tea Party event wearing a jacket with racist slogans being confronted by a Tea Party attendee telling him to go away, that he was not welcome there, and that the Tea Party event was not racist. 
  • Glenn asks if you have real personal courage.
  • He showed a quote from Andy Stern, then president of SEIU, saying they are watching how people voted, where they live and they took names.
  • Glenn then showed various videos of fights in restaurants where people were watching and recording the fights, but not helping.  Another video showed a man on a street corner getting shot and no one went to help him.
  • We are losing the bond of love and courage.
  • Courage will be needed in the future.

  • Bonhoeffer was born into an amazing family.
  • He was a German Lutheran pastor.
  • He stood in opposition to the Nazis.
  • He was executed in 1945 in a concentration camp.
  • He ultimately came to apply his philosophy in the real world, which led him to participate in a plot against Hitler.

  • Bonhoeffer wanted to meet Gandhi, but Gandhi’s non-violent tactics would not have worked with the Nazis.
  • Gandhi’s strategy was to change the British and convince them they were wrong.
  • Martin Luther King’s strategy was a take-off on Gandhi’s strategy.

The Defense of Marriage Act

  • The bill was passed into law.
  • The Department of Justice to not defend the law.
  • A private law firm took up the case.
  • The firm received threats and quit.
  • One lawyer at the firm, Paul Clement, continued on because he feels each side deserves adequate representation.
  • He had to leave and go to another firm to do this.
