While the United States Government hurries to evacuate American citizens and Afghan allies out of Kabul before their deadline of August 31, private fundraisers are being held to help the people being left behind.

Glenn Beck – a radio host – urges his audience to donate to save the persecuted Christians in Afghanistan that otherwise would be killed by the Taliban. He tells them to “give until it hurts” in order to fund his evacuation of thousands of people escaping from the Taliban. In just three days, he raises 22 million dollars, and all of that money is going into saving those people. 

Due to the Taliban’s extreme interpretation of Islam, any Afghan who expresses any form of other belief or faith is in great danger. Earlier this month, the Taliban sent letters to churches with the words: “We know who you are and we’re coming for you.”

“These people are marked for death for what they believe in,” says Beck. He also says in an interview with Tucker Carlson that the State Department has been blocking his efforts to save these Afghans, so much so that he is afraid to tell exactly where he is even sending these people. He has offered to tell us only when the refugees are safely on the ground. He is worried that the State Department will threaten those countries not to take the fleeing Christians.

“We have to ship folks into even higher hazard to strive to smuggle these Christians out who’re marked not only for demise, however to be set on fireplace alive as a result of they’re transformed Christians.”

While the original idea was to save the Christians who were to be executed by the Taliban, Glenn Beck is now opening the doors of his many planes to those who are not Christian, yet still want to flee their country. However, a new concern grows as directed to the newly rescued Afghans and who will declare them. “Sadly, however definitely, not America,” says Beck, referring back to his concern with the State Department; in fact, many desperate Afghans are being turned away at the airport gate by said Department when they tried to board a USG flight. They are being advised to board Beck’s flights instead. “People are being contacted by the State Department and told to go to the airport only to be sent away,” says Jason Jones, a podcaster who runs a non-profit organization called The Vulnerable People Project.
