The new 'American Dream' - socialists behind protests

This weekend, there protests and rallies all over the country that were part of Van Jones’s “American Dream” movement. And, wouldn’t you know it, most of these rallies had a heavy socialist and anarchist presence, especially the headlining event in Washington DC where Van Jones spoke.

“[Van Jones] had a Restore the American Dream rallies from coast to coast idea,” Glenn explained on radio this morning.

“Wait a minute, that wasn't his idea.  That was actually put together by a leftist council in 2008 where they talked about the Restore the American Dream and they did it with Islamicists and radicals and communists and labor unions.  Oh, well, it must have been completely different.  Because his Restore the Dream movement is exactly the same as that one.”

“But pay no attention to that.  This one definitely has no communists or anarchists or anybody else involved.  It's just good people, in his words, finding the moral center.  That's what it is.  So what is the moral center?  Who's behind the moral center?”

The journalists at TheBlaze.com decided to look at the people who make up Van’s “moral center”, and they found some interesting sponsors of the American Dream movement.

Who filed the permits for the rally in DC? The International Socialist Organization!

“The International Socialist Organization is committed to building an organization that participates in the struggle for justice and liberation,” Glenn read from their website.

“The American dream is social justice and liberation and ultimately a future for a socialist society.  They go on to say the misery that millions of people around the world face is rooted in a society we live in, capitalism, where a few who rule profit from labor of the vast majority of the population.  The U.S. is a ‑‑ in the U.S. a tiny proportion of the population enjoys fantastic wealth, while millions of people live in desperate poverty and many more live paycheck to paycheck.  Yet we have the resources to feed, clothe and educate everyone on the planet.  A world free of exploitation, socialism, is not only possible but worth fighting for.  The ISO stands in the tradition of revolutionary socialist Karl Marx, V. I. Lenin, and Leon Trotsky, in the belief that workers themselves, the vast majority of the population, are the only force that can lead the fight to win a socialist society.  Socialism can't be brought about from above.  It has to be won by the workers themselves,” Glenn continued.

“I just want to, just want to point out here, it can't be won from above.  It's really top down, bottom up, inside out.  The Democratic Party much like the Republican act in the interest of corporate America and the privileged few at the top.  Therefore we don't support their candidates.  We see our task as building an independent socialist organization with members organizing in our workplaces, our schools, and our neighborhoods to bring socialist ideas to the struggles we're involved in today.  The vision of a socialist world in the future.”

Stu filled the audience on on the rest of the movement’s sponsors. “It's interesting, too, Glenn because the event itself was brought to you by multiple groups you might be familiar with that wouldn't normally identify themselves as socialist such as SEIU, the AFL‑CIO, moveon.org, ColorofChange.org, Democracy for America, Green for All, Van Jones' group, the Daily Kos, how about Democrats.com, the Sierra Club, Media Matters!  They're all banner sponsors for this puppy.”

So the permits were filed by the International Socialist Organization, the rally was sponsored by leftist and marxist groups, yet Glenn is the crazy one?

"Interesting enough, Glenn, is that your conspiracy theories have now come to the point where you're so good at them that you will actually infiltrate these organizations and plant the conspiracy inside of them so that they act in the same way that your conspiracy theory predicts," Stu joked.

Stay tuned to GlennBeck.com and TheBlaze.com to see more examples of Glenn’s “crazy theories” coming true.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
