The Masks are coming off - radicals are revealing themselves even more

Progressives really don’t seem to like the way that America works, and they are on a mission of change. But they don’t just want a change from the Bush years, they really do want to fundamentally change the way the country works. On radio, Glenn looked at several examples of the fundamental transformation Progressives are pursuing in this country.

Andy Stern has written an op-ed that calls for a change in checks and balances at the federal level. “In the midst of the transformative change of globalization and this third economic revolution, those layers have become an impediment to making the changes necessary to keep America competitive in the world economy.  Today America crawls along as a snail's pace,” Glenn read from Stern’s piece.

“He is actually now beginning to lay out the argument that the checks and balances system of the Constitution is no good,” Glenn said.

“Most frequent visitor to the White House when he was with SEIU,” Pat pointed out.

“But I'm sure the President doesn't believe any of this nonsense,” Glenn said.

With all of these stories coming out, Glenn wondered if the Justice Department would ever stop and take a look at what the union leaders have been calling for.

Brian Becker, another progressive leader with the Party for Socialism and Liberation, has been saying that nonviolence isn’t the answer to achieving their goals.

“The people in Venezuela and the people in Cuba and the people everywhere who want to be free is build a revolutionary party, an organization and movement in the United States that can fight and defeat U.S. imperialism,” he said.

“We're a party of activism.  We believe that without action, without struggle, the idea of Marxist politics or socialist politics or progressive politics is, in fact, very empty,” he continued.

“ Notice how he ties all of those together,” Pat said. “Marxism, socialist, progressivism, all tied in there together by this guy.”

Becker continued, “We're not a discussion group.  We're not discussing issues because they're interesting.  We are discussing things because we want to go in to struggle against oppression.  Promote the liberation which operates out of a Marxist framework and a revolutionary social framework to answer the larger question that if it wasn't just oil, what made this war happen?”

“In two weeks in front of the White House and around the country demonstrating and some people aren't going to be demonstrating because they're against any war.”

“We have George Washington on our dollar bills.  He led an armed struggle against British colonialism.  We're taught that that was a good thing, even though it was violent.  In the case of the U.S. Civil War, the bloodiest war for the United States in its history, 650 or 700,000 people died in the U.S. Civil War, but the outcome of that war was the end of chattel slavery as a legal institution.  That was the progressive outcome.  The destruction of the system of slavery was a positive and progressive development.  The fact that there had to be massive violence does not take away all from the fact that it was a progressive development.” Becker said.

“It is amazing to me how everybody, of course, was looking so hard for the violent rhetoric from Americans.  We have it in spades.  We have it in spades.  Name the other show!  Name the other show in America!  Name it!  That has built the case all the way along, that has shown who's involved and how it's coming down and showing the violence,” Glenn said.

‘Where are the hearings in Washington?  This is not some witch hunt.  We have them saying it on tape!  And nobody seems to care,” Glenn said.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
