A couple of summers ago, Glenn warned that there could come a time where the rich “evil” corporate executives would be demonized to a point where they had been completely dehumanized. That with factors like hunger, anger, job loss, fear, and poverty this could lead to them becoming targets of violence.
After hearing an alarming movie trailer, Glenn warned that, “because we are sowing the seeds of hatred so deeply that when you add on top of it anger, hunger, job loss, fear, when you add those things into the mix that have still not yet arrived, darkness will sweep if we are not holding each other up.” Before playing the clip, Stu reminded the radio audience to compare what they’re about to hear to the way the media reacts to Glenn.
“Think about this in the context of Glenn says an offhanded comment or goes through a news story and that sort of stuff supposedly causes violence,” Stu said.
“We are the East. We don’t care how rich you are. We want all those who are guilty to experience the terror of their crime. It’s easy when it’s not your life. Easy when it’s not your home. But when it’s your fault, it shouldn’t be so easy to sleep at night.
Especially when we know where you live. Lie to us; we’ll lie to you. Spy on us; we’ll spy on you. Poison us; we’ll poison you. We will counterattack three corporations in the next six months for the worldwide terrorism, and this is just the beginning.”
“This is so evil,” Glenn responded after the clip ended. “It is flat‑out evil. I’m telling you I don’t think I’ve seen anything so evil as this. This may be a crappy movie. I don’t know anything about it, but this is evil. This direction is absolutely evil. You cannot tell me that movies don’t affect people.”
Not to say that Hollywood is responsible for any real acts of violence — they’re not. That responsibility falls with the individual committing the act, but Glenn’s point is what is happening to our culture. What is put into culture will shape a society. And movies do have the power to impact people — especially young people. Glenn also pointed out the hypocrisy made when people say that movies don’t impact people.
If a 2 hour long movie can impact a person in some way, explain commercials.
“If you’ve been trying to convince people that your ads in 10, 30, and 60 second bites move people to do something, to go out and buy a product, try something new, see it in a totally different way; if 10, 30, and 60 second spots can do that, what makes you think that a 90‑minute movie that plays right into a subculture doesn’t move people?” Glenn asked.
“Yeah, the movie is specifically about an eco terrorist group that are going to, because they’ve been wronged, feel free to go and kill executives from companies because corporations, as you know, are evil,” Stu said.
“They set up that premise that these corporations are poisoning people all over the world,” Pat added. “It’s because of their world terrorism.”
“You plant these seeds, I’m telling you we will reap what we sow. You plant these seeds and no good will come of it,” Glenn said.
Glenn emphasized that he’s not talking about banning this or any other movie — admitting that he doesn’t know the details about the movie. What he’s pointing out is the direction of society. The direction of “entertainment”.
“Is there anybody, anybody on the left, anybody in Hollywood that has a should left to them?” he asked. “Is there anybody that says, ‘Maybe we should life people up?’ Is there anybody that is trying to put light in the world instead of darkness?”
While the mainstream news organizations like to highlight ‘conservative TEA Partiers’ as terror suspects in almost every situation that arises, Stu notes that there is only one non-Muslim on our country’s terror list: a left wing animal activist terrorist. There are zero right-wingers.
Yet, that’s who Hollywood has decided to highlight as the ‘good guy, underdog’ in this film: the left-wing eco-terrorist.
“And you know what? We don’t even talk about it. We don’t talk about animal activists like this. We don’t talk about ELF or ALF. We don’t talk about Muslims,” Glenn said. ”They’re not terrorists. What are you talking about? We can’t even say that. The only terrorist we ever talk about is Timothy McVeigh, and he wasn’t a Christian, either. But I’ll be damned if you don’t think he’s a Christian.”
The media and the White House will demonize the NRA and other conservative groups though. Ironically, the only groups, Glenn points out, that will side-by-side with those that they disagree with vehemently in an effort to preserve their rights.
Glenn noted that while giving his NRA speech, which lasted an 1 hour and 40 minutes, his focus was on compassion and love — that those things will maintain and preserve freedom.
“Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jesus — my speech talked about how we have to have more responsibility,” he said.
But all Media Matters, followed by others in the MSM, picked up on was one graphic used during the speech…and they didn’t even report on that correctly.
The media will likely glorify this movie and ignore the subtle message it sends to its viewers. Glenn compared it to the way the leaders in our country are viewing China. Using China as the model seems to be the direction the U.S. is headed, yet what’s happening there goes against so much of what Democrats preach about the middle class and equality.
“The smog you can see from space. The rivers are running red with chemicals. 300,000 pigs were found floating dead in a river recently. People, the rich hire look‑alikes to go and stand trial and serve their time in prison. Their solution for their awful, awful system, for their workers, is to put suicide nets all around Foxconn so you can’t kill yourself. You’ll just bounce on the net and go back to work. Good God almighty, do you see where the world is headed?” Glenn asked.
“If the United States of America, if the West falls, forget about the red, white and blue. If the West falls, if decent God‑fearing Americans, if decent God‑fearing Canadians… if those who understand what made the West great, if they fall, the world will weep for decades, if not centuries. Where will the world run for freedom?
We have an eternal responsibility. I am a flawed messenger. I don’t know how to say it. You have to be worn out from listening to me for the last ten years. I don’t know how else to get the message out, but somebody in this audience does. Will it be you? Will you find a new way? Can you use new media is this can you use Facebook, Twitter? Can you find a new way? Is there an artist throughout? Is there a video, a video producer out there? Is there a songwriter? Is there a moviemaker? Is there a preacher or a pastor or a rabbi that will stand? We’re running out of time, America. We’re running out of time, and hatred and violence is not the answer. Peace, love, and God. He is our rock, He is our salvation, He is our hiding place. And if we don’t stand now, may I suggest, suggest that you strengthen that hiding place, fortify it because what you see and hear in this movie will not be a movie. We’ll be lucky if the world turns out to be as sane as China.”
