Glenn responds to NYT: "I am against violence in all cases."

A New York Times article that came out over the weekend tried to blame Glenn for threats directed at Frances Fox Piven. Glenn responded to the accusations on radio this morning. More on the article can be found at The Blaze.

Glenn said that when he first thought of the article, he thought, “Thank you for finally spotlighting hateful rhetoric where someone who's calling for riots like in Greece is going to be exposed.”

Surprisingly, the article didn’t focus on Piven’s well-documented calls for violence, but rather on anonymous threats that Piven has received since Glenn started pointing out her questionable rhetoric. The article quoted Senior Vice President Joel Cheetwood at Fox News who explained that Glenn “would not be ordered to stop talking about Ms. Piven on television and [Cheatwood] said Mr. Beck had quoted her accurately and had never threatened her.”

“No, you see, my so‑called threat was saying she's making violent threats.” Glenn said.

Glenn then listed several instances where she has called for violence, chaos, or riots. Among the stories he highlighted was her recent statements saying that an effective movement of the unemployed witll look something like the recent riots in Greece, where several people were killed. The Blaze has a full summary of Piven's philosophy and violent rhetoric here.

“They are talking about the riots in Greece and here's how it's described:  At the same time tens of thousands of protestors marched through Athens in the largest and most violent protest since the country's budget crisis began last fall.  Angry youths rampaged through the center of Athens,” Glenn said.

“Three victims died from asphyxiation and smoke inhalation.  The Athens coroner's office said four others seriously injured.  This is one, one rampaging mob damn near burning people to death,” he added.

“But worry about Glenn Beck pointing out that we have a professor at a university calling for these thing,” Glenn said in sarcastic frustration.

“Let me just say this:  I am against violence in all cases.  And even if you have a good reason to break a window, don't break the window.  Don't do it,” Glenn said.

The New York Times should understand that there comes a point when constant intentional repetition of provocative, incendiary, emotional misinformation and falsehoods about a person can put that person in actual physical danger of a violent response.  You want a response from me, New York Times?  That's it,” Glenn said.

Glenn promised to address the story further on television tonight at 5pm.

“On tonight's broadcast at 5:00pm on Fox, we're going to tie this together and I want you to do your own research because we'll do the work that no one else will so you can do the work that the New York Times won't do and that is spread the word.  But I'm going to make sure that all the facts are buttoned down and everything is completely in context for you.  You can have your friends who don't believe watch all of it uncut.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
