SEIU protesters take over bank HQ

While the left will undoubtedly claim that Stephen Lerner and his plot of economic terrorism has nothing to do with them, SEIU continues to use radical tactics to attack economic institutions. The latest shows a group of SEIU protestors infiltrating a bank in Pennsylvania and disrupting business for a portion of the day. Glenn gave his reaction on video this morning, and tied it back to the larger story of the left’s plan for economic collapse.

“What caused the financial collapse last time?  I will tell you that it was many people living beyond their means is one.  But also the forcing of the banks to give loans to people who didn't qualify, to give no interest, no downpayment, no i.d., no proof of a job, give people those loans.  Who did that?  The banks did that.  For what reason?” Glenn asked on radio this morning.

Pat told the audience it was because the bank received pressure from ACORN and SEIU.

“ACORN would go in and disrupt services at the bank and say you have to do these things or we won't leave you alone and you'll never expand.  You'll never get anything from government, et cetera, et cetera,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that it’s the same thing that Lerner is calling for in the transcript of the video, where union members at the federal, state, and county governments should demand that banks renegotiate loans.

And what if the banks don’t cooperate? The protestors will jam their machinery closed, much like they do in the video below:

“They show up.  They shut the bank down and the bank will receive pressure,” Glenn said.

Pat said, “It's pretty amazing and their little dispute has nothing to do with the bank other than the bank President is on the Board of Directors at the medical plaza where they're striking.”

“They're in the lobby chanting to see the bank President who has nothing to do with this.  The person says we will call the police and they continue to chant, respect our vote, respect our vote, and the police are called and the union representative walks out to talk with the police officer.  Saying we don't want to cause any problems here.  You already have! They chant that they'll be back.  And they will,” Pat continued.

“This is the fear and the scare tactics that you are going to see more and more.  Now what they will do is they will cause these scare tactics and they will force the banks, according to this plan outlined.  You'll see it at  They will force the banks to refinance all of the state loan, all of the county and the banks will not be able to do it.  He says that's the plan,” Glenn said.

“To bring them to the edge of financial collapse because if we can cause enough chaos, if we can bring them to the edge of financial collapse, we can collapse the system and we can cause another financial crisis.”

‘Now who in their right mind thinks another financial crisis is a good thing?  Who thinks that this government is going to be able to survive?  There are anarchists.  There are communists.  There are even people who claim to be patriots.  ‘I want anarchy! We'll take it down!’” Glenn said.

Glenn said that this is just more of the Van Jones “top down, bottom up, inside out” strategy the left want to employ to enact their goals.

“Republican, Democrat, Independent, it doesn't matter,” Glenn said. “That is not what this Republic is.  We are free men that control our own destiny and our own lives.”

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
