Piven admits Glenn was right

Attention news outlets everywhere! Once you read this we know it will be your lead story tonight: Frances Fox Piven has admitted that Glenn was right about her! What’s that? You’re busy covering inconsequential and irrelevant stories? Oh, we guess that’s no big surprise.

In a bit of (not so) shocking audio, radicals Frances Fox Piven and Cornell West both admit that they think that organizing the poor and pushing them to riot is the only way to get people involved in the political process. Check out the audio from The Blaze below:

“I think it's no doubt there's no threat of whatever social chaos of noise, of disorder, of discord has always been a powerful weapon of poor people who have great dignity in their cultural and spiritual expressions,” West said. “We are a threat to this oligarchy plutocratic order and we're proud to be a threat.”

Piven, on the other hand, admits that she believes that an organized group only has real power “when they make trouble.”

“The lesson was poor people thought that they could only enter politics through different sorts of tactics. They had to be noisy, they had to get people's attention. They had to make trouble, and really make trouble. And, you know, since that period I've been pondering that understanding and I've come to the conclusion that they're right. That, in fact, lots of people only have real power when they make trouble,” Piven said.

“Remember, what Frances Fox Piven is being cast as is a sweet old grandma who, of course, has never talked about riots,” Glenn said.

“How often does she have to confirm this? I mean, over and over she denies that she has trouble in mind, that she has rioting in mind, that there's no violence involved in this. It's nonsense,” Pat said.

“They know they have the cover from the mainstream media,” Glenn said.

“So what does this mean for you? What do you do about it? Well, you have to know who you're standing with. You have to know that the way out of this is not to cause trouble. But to be a peacemaker. Remember these words. Blessed are the peacemakers,” Glenn said.

Stu said, “I feel like, too, when you're fighting this sort of war of ideas and you - I feel like at times it gets really tiring. But you have to sit back and think that someone like Frances Fox Piven has been at this for 40 years. She has been pushing this same idea every single time she speaks.”

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
