Glenn Beck to Bring Soccer Balls, Hot Meals to Illegals: 'We Must Open Our Hearts'
breitbart.com ^ | 7/8/14 | Tony Lee

Posted on 07/09/2014 3:42:37 AM PDT by cotton1706

Glenn Beck said bringing soccer balls, teddy bears, and hot meals to illegal immigrants who have been detained along the U.S.-Mexico border will be the most right thing he has ever done.

On July 19, Beck will travel to McAllen, Texas, because he believes Americans must "open our hearts" to the illegal immigrant children who have been unlawfully entering the country.

"I’ve never taken a position more deadly to my career than this – and I have never, ever taken a position that is more right than this," Beck claimed, according to The Blaze.

Beck said helping illegal immigrant children, most of whom have fled Central American nations, was more "right" to him than even calling out radical Islam.

“We’re going to fill some tractor-trailers with food, with water,” Beck said. “The churches have asked us if we could bring teddy bears and soccer balls, so we’ve loaded up a whole tractor-trailer of nothing but teddy bears and soccer balls. And then I’m going to go serve breakfast and lunch, and I’m going to help unload these trucks, hot meals for 3,000. That’s what we’re doing.”

Some illegal immigrants have been found to have contagious diseases and dangerous gang affiliations, but Beck also emphasized that the United States should be accessible to "all those fleeing poverty and violence."

Beck is a total nutcase! The use of children to invade and destabilize garner sympathy is obvious. And Glenn Beck falls for it.

A opportunist who is prone to histrionics and grandstanding that, while much ballyhooed in its promises, most often fails to deliver.

Let’s see (from the things I remember hearing him infrequently in the last two or three years):

1) Buy gold (at record high prices, at that)
2) He did something miraculous in his Israel trip - what was it?
3) Now, we MUST open our hearts to these poooooor children who are invading our country.

Frankly, this man is insane. I think his brain got pickled from all the booze.

On the rare occasion it occurs I love to disagree with Beck. As much as it pains me, I agree with him here. The Pied Piper of 1600 has “out-Pivened” us. One of the last nails in America’s coffin is being driven and it really is too late to do much but going down abusing children will be a hard sell at the Pearly Gates...

This is amusing because unless he intends to make a lifetime commitment to these “children” this is nothing more than a publicity stunt. They will need breakfast and lunch for years to come, not just this one photo op. Oh and there are some 20 million more children world wide that are just as deserving. Hope you have a big checkbook.

Like feeding a stray dog - it will never go away...

I stopped listening to Beck yrs ago...he’s lost and completely inside himself...someone got to him and made a deal...he’s serving a purpose for someone else and it’s not the U.S.

His fame has clouded his brain!

We should open our hearts to them - as we reunite them with their families in their home countries. Being able to recite some rubbish about being in danger at home is proof that their lawyers coached them well, not that they are genuine refugees. All (okay, maybe 98%, which is an improvement even if we can’t catch them all) illegals should be stopped at the border and shipped back to their homes, and we should fix the legal system so those we want coming here can come without having to compete with criminals.

By all means, open up your hearts.

Feed them, shower them, and then open up the bus doors and take them back to where they belong.

If America is not any more exceptional than any other nation, why would they make their way here? Take them back to their own equally exceptional countries.

Um, Glenn. Nearly every country in the world (that doesn't reside in North America or Europe) is full of poverty and violence.

Do you advocate absorbing them ALL?

First, he’ll find out that these “kids” are not babes-in-arms.
Then, he’ll find out that many of them have been shifting for themselves on the street since a very young age.
Many others are paid “mules” to lend credibility to the adult that accompanies them.

The life they’ve known does not involve many kindnesses. If Beck wants to be kind to these unfortunates, he should put all his effort into taking them in. The government of the U.S. doesn’t care about them, and a soccer ball isn’t going to end their dilemma. If Glenn can’t take them in and feed and clothe them (and he could, you see,) then he is no better than Obama, using them as political cannon fodder. A bus ride to another town, or a teddy bear are the only choices for these people? Really not seeing a plus for anyone but Beck.

I have no problem with providing them with hot food, clean water, and basic medical attention as we figure out how to safely deport them back to their families.

It all makes me sick to my stomach that Obama has exploited these innocent children this way but it also makes me sick to my stomach to see innocent children exploited and suffering.

Simultaneously, we need to put together a clear case implicating Obama, the community organizer, as the organizer of this fiasco and add it to his list of impeachable offenses. and then we need to impeach him. This is beyond the pale.

Did you bother to listen to the entire monologue? He has a larger point about Honduras and how the Obama administration was the only government in the whole world who supported the sham election that sent Honduras into the chaos it is in now. In reality, these people are refugees of our (US Government)own making.

He is not proposing making them legal immigrants, he is just facing the facts that our government created this mess years ago and he is only looking at a humanitarian band-aid while he tries to make the focus on our corrupt government causing all of this.

He makes the point so ever clear that border enforcement is only a first step, but I believe he makes a great point in that our government caused it all to happen. So if you know that to fix any problem, you have to go after the cause first, what is your immediate solution that this lawless government would be willing to accept?

Obama won’t enforce anything and then all of these people are essentially told to come here by Obama and nobody is willing to do anything about him? We are not a dispassionate people, we can reasonably at least feed them and give them shelter in so many ways but the only way he desires is to jamb it down out throats while he exacerbates the problem that created the whole mess in the first place.

The whole friggin thing stinks to high heavens, blame the fargin idiots who voted for this Maggot Farmer and get right in their faces with it. They and the media are the responsible agents, not someone pointing out the larger picture of what caused it and is only recognizing the fact that they were caught in the middle.

It won’t be easy but We The People can fix this and the original reasons why and then these people can be sent back home to at least some sort of security that does not exist now. Honduras is our future unless somebody stops the Ruling Class of both Parties.

I tune in Beck's ludicrous morning radio show every once in a while to see what he's up to. The other morning he was in the midst of a rambling, lengthy, nutty Sunday-morning-type sermon on something or other. I didn't hang around long enough to find out.

The post-TV Glenn is so far off his rocker now that he belongs in the pulpit of some whacked-out cult "religion".

The butterfly nets cannot be far behind for him and his followers.

Beck reminds me of someone I know with battered woman syndrome. Always taking the high road back to the abuser instead of to a better place. Always thinking her saintly behavior will convert the abuser into a saint.

And as an aside, the problems of Honduras were created by Hondurans, not us.
