‘The East’ glorifies eco-terrorists attacking corporations

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

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.”

    Remember the adage of a picture being worth a thousand words?

    With the Democrat Socialists their messages are delivered in imagery and symbolism.

    So it is that their message of – business is bad, terrorists are the good guys, fight the big bad old businesses who are ruining the world, as only government can save you from them, is being conveyed by the lunatics of Hollywood.

    They seek the collective – when it is the individual who is supposed to be responsible and accountable.

    May God have mercy on their souls.

    If America falls, due to our failure to do anything, then the darkness which will encompass the world will be eternal.

    • Terry Lippstreu

      Snowleopard, I always thought you were more positive than this.  God’s kingdom will continue to grow, not in spite of persecution, but rather because of it.  And God’s kingdom is infinitely more important than the U.S.A. will ever be.  The number & % of Christians in the world has continued to grow, ever so slowly, throughout the past 2000 years, and will continue to, until all His enemies are under His feet.  If American falls, another will take its place, if & when God wills it.  The hearts of the leaders of this world are like putty in the hands of God.  Obama cannot accomplish any of his “plans” without God allowing it, and God can just as quickly put a stop to it – when God decides the time is right.  Our nation has murdered 50 million babies in the past 40 years – a true genocide – and justice must be served.  Can we repent?  Certainly!  But there is still a price to pay, and it will be paid.  I pray that enough of the righteous in this land are enough for God to spare it, but if not, it will be for our own good and for the good of God’s kingdom in the long run.  God sees what we cannot.  Can we trust Him for the good He brings, and then not trust Him when difficult times are upon us?  Neither life nor death can separate us from the love of Christ Jesus.  God’s blessings upon you, Snowleopard.  You do good work, and God will reward you for it.  Just don’t give up.  Even one candle pierces the darkness and makes it flee.

    The corporation is a result of statism. They ruin our environment and take advantage of the poor and impoverished. Forgive me if I don’t feel sorry for them.

        Devices such as the computer were made and distributed well before the corporation came about.

          General Motors, General Electric, General Mills, thousands of other corporations were operating long before ENIAC, the first electronic computer was designed.

             And they have been raping our land and taking advantage of the poor and impoverished since their inception.

            The East India Trading Company is one of the first examples of business and government joining forces. The local bars and taverns of that day probably loved the amount of business that these entities brought with them. But the small ship owner paid a price. They were blown out of the water. There is nothing moral about today’s corporation.

            We need to end our limited liability laws and start holding white collar executives accountable for their crimes. There is no accountability in government or large business.

             I understand that. That was not the point that I was making. Computers would have came into existence with or without today’s corporation.

        • http://twitter.com/SnowOwlFan Herbert Shallcross


          Oops, the Atanasoff, Berry Computer, a digital electronic computer predated ENIAC, as did Colossus, an analog electronic computer.  None of these could be said to have been “distributed”, since they were all one-offs. Unless we are talking about abacuses or adding machines, the nearest thing up until the 1940’s to computers were programmable mechanical devices like the Jacqard loom and elaborate music box-like toys. As early as 1822 Charles Babbage designed, but didn’t succeed in building the Difference Engine which was a sort of mechanical computing machine. The company that built ENIAC produced mainframe computers commercially as the UNIVAC as early as 1949.

          The first mass produced computer was the 1953 IBM 701. The first mass-marketed personal computer was the 1968 HP 9100A.


          Commercial corporations date from at least the Stora Kopparberg mining community of 1347.

             I was referring to devices in general. Goods were produced and distributed BEFORE the corporation was born.  Mankind existed before the corporation did.

        What is your point?  We are born into a world where corporations control everything, including that big bad government that the tea partiers love to rail against (if you love corporations why the heck would you not like government?).  Sometime we are forced to use the avenue that is most effective.  What you are really pleading is that people on the left go off the grid, but we need the grid to take it down.  It is the most effective way to reach people.  Unless you got a passenger pigeon?  Oh wait, corporations killed them off.

    Great idea for a movie. Americas toxic mix of religion and over-consumption has spread around the globe, and in its wake plundered the earth and enslaved millions. It’s about time Hollywood addressed that.

      “…End of Greed, Til Man is Free!” (“till” with 2 “L’s” is a cash register, which is an ironic fail in this circumstance :)

      Without greed and fear, Man is nothing.  Fear made fire.  Greed made civilization.

      Greed, or avarice, or envy, or whatever you want to call it when something can be decisively possessed, is a natural part of the world, and to deny that is to fail to understand even base mammal motivation – so commenting on human behavior seems clearly outside your realm of credible knowledge.

      I would suggest that you read more psychology and history, but that would interrupt your vapid and soporific sloganeering, and might provoke thought.

    Personally,,, I think that Corporate execs. are just as responsible for the mess our country is in as the Government is.  They’re just as responsible!

    How do people sleep at night knowing that the jobs they are giving overseas that are “SUPPOSED” to go to Hard-working & ready to work American citizens that end up frustrated & discusted to the point of going on Social security disability is beyond me!!!

    The Trans Pacific Partnership – A Corporate Fascist Coup

    There is a bold global corporate takeover happening right before our eyes. The Trans Pacific Partnership has been discussed in secret for nearly 3 years and has been disguised as a trade deal when in reality it amounts to a fascist corporate coup where the megacorporations are gaining a tighter grip over individual governments all over the world.

    I hope those who produce this movie will be held responsible for the acts that result from those who will see it as their way to make a difference, probably killing many in the process, and further hurting the economy that pays for free cell phones and food stamps.

    “I don’t know anything about it but this is evil”- that statement in itself is enough to invalidate everything he said.
    However, clearly Glenn and I watched a different trailer if he thought this was glorifying eco-terrorists.  To me it made them look pretty demented, and based on his logic with the joker hollywood should never have truly twisted and interesting antagonists.

    no one on the left has the balls to stand up to new black panther leader king shamir shabazz after he proudly proclaims “i hate white people…”  no one from the left has the courage to go up to him and say “what the f are you doing?  don’t say those things–it ain’t right”  no one.

    the left allows that voice/those voices to be heard to represent them.  that’s how we know who/what they are because they do not denounce the proclamations of shabazz; they do not reject the non-leader president of the u.s. who says “i like the occupy spirit” when occupy has proven to be criminal filth; nor are they curious about benghazi, thus being fine w/dead bodies.

    no one on the left demands a leadership that seeks truth and enlightenment (true progression); no one on the left even demands a black man of good moral principles (like mlk and dr. ben carson) take the white house.

    this is how we know what they are.

    they are vengeance.

    One can’t resolve between Western Gov. & Corps. in the year 2013. So if Beck hates Gov. by default he should hate Corps. too, unless he’s too stupid to have realsised this supersymmetry.  But then again he is the Glenn Beck Corp. (hope you’ve all bought a t-shirt this week).

        He’s right! Big business is in direct opposition to small business. They see us as a threat, and laws are passed to make it hard to start and run your own business. Small business is the only way to save our ailing economy and improve the lot of the middle class. Don’t expect Exxon, GM, or GE to do it.

    Glenn brings up a good point about commercial spots; if a short commercial can persuade someone to buy product A over product B; how much more does a 90 minute long movie linger in the mind of an individual?
    For those who wish to laugh it off, why did drive in movie theaters have to stop the practice of subliminal advertising?  Why would one singular frame with the movie, showing nothing more than a tub of fresh popcorn, a cup of soda, or a hot dog, need to be removed from the film if it wasn’t deemed to be influential?
    How much more so will movies like this be inciting people to violence?

    So the executives that make money, and work for a living are the bad guy, Huh? Well, I have news for you without them this country would not operate.  They are not the bad guy, this administration is painting them as such to create class warfare. Dividing and concurring gets them on step closer to controlling its population. If our currency as the worlds reserve currency is done away (which will happen, (its just a matter of time) we are all in for a world of hurt. Life as we know it is over. This will close banks, close businesses and wipe out your savings. This will usher in Marshall Law. The one world government will begin. This can happen in a blink of an eye. When the rest of the world decides to knock us off our pedestal and chooses another form of currency for the reserve currency, this will leave us defenseless and powerless in the world. This is about to happen, get prepared people. We will no longer be able to print money if our money is worth nothing what will you do to provide for your family? Mark my words……..this is coming. How will you prepare?
