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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
