Glenn Beck claims to be doing what the Biden administration can’t: evacuating people out of Afghanistan safely. Except many people are calling BS on Beck’s selective “saving.”
The conservative commentator’s Nazarene Fund has reportedly raised over $30 million and evacuated a total of 5,000 refugees from Afghanistan amidst the Taliban takeover. The rescue effort has been hailed as a massive success by Beck’s supporters while the organization’s focus on the country’s “religious minorities” is striking others as not-so-Christian.
According to a report by the Washington Post, the Islamic extremist group’s presence has resulted in heightened fear of repercussions for Afghans of the Christian faith.
Beck, who was in the Middle East for the proceedings, shared a photo of the last plane of refugees to depart prior to the ISIS suicide bombing of the Kabul Airport on Thursday, writing that next he would be boarding a plane to “help prepare their new home(s) far from the Taliban and ISIS.”
“We will not forget those left behind. Our mission there gets tougher and more dangerous,” he wrote on Instagram. “We also, still have more work to do as now we have 5100 refugees sitting in another country wondering who will claim them? Sadly, but certainly not America. Biden will only take people the cartels will charge, exploit and rape. Certainly, not those other people that are marked for death because of his policies.”
The radio host also explained how the funds were being spent in an earlier video update on Thursday.
“We view your money as sacred money. It’s like tithing to me,” Beck said. “None of my travels or my team’s travels, none of it is paid for by the Nazarene Fund. I insisted it. Not a single meal, not a cupcake-and yes there will be cupcakes on this trip.”
Beck’s supporters praised him and his team for doing “more for Americans than all of Biden’s supporters combined.”
Glenn Beck is rescuing Americans and on the ground in Afghanistan with his crew while Joe Biden is calling lids… So far 5200 have been rescued and flown out of the country thanks to Beck and his teams.

Several online commenters were not convinced by Beck’s transparency regarding the cupcake budget though, continuing to label the rescue mission as yet another “grift” in addition to calling his quest to save only Christians from a predominantly Muslim country into question.
Glenn Beck is "rescuing Christians" just like Ted Cruz was performing heroic acts at the Mexican border.🙄

Does a real Christian rescue only Christians from Afghanistan?

Glenn Beck is supposedly raising money to save only Christians in a country that's approximately 99.7% Muslim and I think that tells you really all you need to know about prominent white Republicans and conservatives in America.

Glenn Beck is a grifter just like Trump.

Believing Glenn Beck, at this point, is on you. Why do we keep letting the same charlatans come out and take a bow?

I wonder if members of the US Taliban like Glenn Beck are aware that:
> Jesus WASN'T White
> Jesus DIDN'T speak English
> If Jesus showed up today, RepubliQans would crucify him (figuratively).
> Only about 33% of the planet is Christian – far less than even HALF!

Imagine being dumb enough to believe anything that oozed out of Glenn Beck’s disgusting suckhole. That’s some next level stupid.

Glenn Beck is being praised for rescuing Christians from Afghanistan. So Christian of him to only rescue "Christians"
It's like saving an arsonist from a fire.
