Glenn Beck left Fox News back in 2011 to start his own television network, The Blaze. The TV and radio host, however, still makes Fox News appearances from time to time.
He returned to the network last night to deliver a ranting diatribe on what President Trump should do about immigration. Beck claimed that the problem should be handle internally as the root of the issue is Communists and George Soros.
Beck discussed a church in Chicago that offers sanctuary for immigrants without naming the church. He may have been referring to The Wellington Avenue Church which began taking refugees in 1982. The church did so, ” in the medieval tradition of churches providing sanctuary for those fleeing persecution, aimed at providing a safe haven for Central Americans running from political repression and violence in their home countries.”
Referring time and again to a blackboard that didn’t appear on screen, Beck then targeted George Soros. He accused the billionaire philanthropist of funding the church and sanctuary cities on a whole. The New York Times debunked these claims in October of 2018.
The pundit said of the current immigration situation, “It was a tactic used against us by China during the Korean War. They just throw wave after wave of people at us until you just can’t fight it anymore.”
Beck ended his diatribe by appealing directly to Donald Trump:
“Mr. President, please, you are not going to solve the problem at the border. I know that seems rational, but when you look at the evidence – we can’t fight the enemy if we won’t call them by name, and these are communists. American communists in Chicago, that are taking loads of money from George Soros and others, they are orchestrating this.”
