Why the love affair with the Muslim Brotherhood?

Most people had a great weekend. They got to spend time with their friends and family. They got to watch the Super Bowl, maybe even see Christina Aguilera (poorly) sing the National Anthem. But Glenn made sure to bring everyone back to reality – and potentially depression – with his opening monologue on Monday’s radio show.

What had Glenn so worried? He had been talking all last week about the idea of “The enemy of my enemy is not my friend”, meaning that just because you have a common enemy  with someone does not mean you should be in alliance with that person. Glenn has used the phrase to criticize the U.S. backing Mubarak in Egypt over some of the other radical options like the Muslim Brotherhood, and today he used the phrase to discuss some of the really bad people and groups aligning over the Middle East crisis.

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend.  Meaning, if they want to destroy it and I want to destroy it, or in our case we're in bed with Egypt.  With Mubarak.  He is a brutal, bad man.  But the enemy of my enemy is my friend.  He would stand up for Israel, he would hold back the people like the Muslim Brotherhood and so we made him our friend.  He's not our friend,” Glenn said.

“And we have allowed evil into our own camp.  We have said we stood for truth, justice, and the American way.  Well, what is the American way?  The American way apparently is to get into bed with brutal dictators.  That's not the American way.  It never has been.”

But now, America is OK with the Muslim Brotherhood getting involved with Egyptian politics. 

“And now the Muslim Brotherhood.  Now we're willing to get into bed with the Muslim Brotherhood because, well, you've got to -- no, you don't!  Do we have no values?  Yes, we do.  And if we don't discover them soon, we're in trouble.”

“Ahmadinejad, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea.  A force for good or evil?”

“If we don't stand together, evil will cover this planet and we will go into a very long period of darkness.  But we better find the light soon, and we better stop playing the games of politics.  Because this ain't about who's going to win the next election,” Glenn said.

“The world is being divvied up.  This isn't about America.  It is because I think we are for the very first time, we're on the wrong side of history.  We've been on the wrong side of history before from time to time but never like this.”

So what are leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood saying? Pat translated some of the words of Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, who “reaches at least 40 million people every single week.”

“He says, O, Allah, take this oppressive tyrannical band of people.  O, Allah, take this oppressive Jewish Zionist band of people.  O, Allah, do not spare a single one of them.  O, Allah, count their numbers and kill them down to the very last one,” Pat translated Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi.

“Throughout history Allah has imposed upon the Jews people who would punish them for their corruption.  Their last punishment was carried out by Hitler.  By means of all the things he did to them, even though they exaggerated this issue, he managed to put them in their place.  This was divine punishment for them.  Allah willing the next time will be at the hand of the believers,” said Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi (Pat translated).

“You got it?” Glenn asked.

“It makes no difference what others choose to do.  It makes a difference what you choose to do and how you live your life.  I truly believe that we are fighting the forces of evil on this planet.  An if anybody wants to make fun of that, that's fine.  If anybody wants to dismiss that as crackpot, that's fine.  I'm totally fine with that.  There is evil.  And you can either recognize it or not.  But the same kind of socialist ideas, the same kind of fascist ideas were embraced in Germany and in Italy.  And those two reached out to the Islamic extremists of their day as well.  And the Islamic extremists joined the socialists.  It is the same coalition.  It is the same ideas,” Glenn said.

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.
