New York Times proves Glenn right on "crazy" Muslim Brotherhood theory

Not too long ago, The New York Times sent Glenn a birthday present by running an article about the ties between the protestors in Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood, an extremist organization that most media outlets claimed was playing a minimal role in Egypt’s revolution. Well, we aren’t sure what the occasion is today It’s Freedom Day in Belarus apparently), but the New York Times has decided to give Glenn another whopper of a gift by proving him right once again.

Glenn read from the latest from The New York Times (full story here):

In post-revolutionary Egypt, where hope and confusion collide in the daily struggle to build a new nation, religion has emerged as a powerful political force, following an uprising that was based on secular ideals. The Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group once banned by the state, is at the forefront, transformed into a tacit partner with the military government that many fear will thwart fundamental changes.

It is also clear that the young, educated secular activists who initially propelled the nonideological revolution are no longer the driving political force — at least not at the moment.

And it continues:

“There is evidence the Brotherhood struck some kind of a deal with the military early on,” said Elijah Zarwan, a senior analyst with the International Crisis Group. “It makes sense if you are the military — you want stability and people off the street. The Brotherhood is one address where you can go to get 100,000 people off the street.”

Who would have ever thought that the Muslim Brotherhood would end up at the forefront of the Egyptian revolution? Uh, Glenn?

“No one could have seen that coming. It was impossible to see that coming,” Pat said.

“All you have to do was take the people at their word. Just believe people,” Glenn said, recalling his statements made earlier when the conflict was happening.

“Other than that, other than listening to what was actually happening on the ground in Egypt there was no way for anyone to know that this was a possibility,” Pat added.

“Wait. Hold it. Stop right there, please. They're only 10% of the population. No one pays attention to them. There are hardly any kind of factor in Egypt right now,” Pat said. When the revolution was happening, many leftist media organizations tried to counter Glenn’s “crazy theories” by saying the Muslim Brotherhood was a small organization with limited influence.

And who is the International Crisis Group mentioned in the NYT article? A George Soros affiliated group that is now endorsing a plan to outlaw demonstrations and sit-ins.

“You need law and order. Now is the time to ban those things,” Glenn said sarcastically.

But things in Egypt aren’t going so bad, right? This new regime must be great and treating people fairly. It’s a democracy now! No?

Glenn said, “Egyptian protesters who were arrested have complained now to amnesty international about shocking treatment by the riot police under Mubarak. Police arrested at least 18 women and allegedly separated the married from the unmarried. A 21‑year‑old woman, Saha Husani said she was forced to undress in front of police and subject to virginity tests according to the BBC." (Read more here)

“That's not about Mubarak's regime. That's the new regime,” Stu pointed out. The protesters were arrested on March 9th, and Mubarak had left weeks earlier.

Since the new regime was democratic – at least that’s what the left was telling us – surely these tests were done in a fair, non-invasive, and respectful way. But then, why would the victims need to alert Amnesty International? Clearly, things are not as “democratic” as the left had lead everyone to believe.

Unfortunately for the people of Egypt and across the Middle East, it looks like Glenn’s “crazy theory” may be right after all.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
