Glenn: "I'm going to start looking for companies that actually stand for something"

A Jewish cosmetic company, AHAVA, has been forced to shut the doors on their London store after pressure from pro-Palestinian groups – and Glenn has decided he has had enough. While Glenn has not called for a boycott on companies he’s disagreed with - despite what the media has reported about his distaste for Levi’s progressive campaign – he is now calling for his audience to support business that do share the values that Glenn and his listeners feel are important.

The Blaze reports “Boycotters of Israeli products won a round after a two-year harassment campaign in London. AHAVA, the Israeli Dead Sea minerals cosmetics company, announced it closed one of its London stores this weekend.”

The Blaze continues to say that while the store had a loyal customer base it had become the center of mass Pro-Palestinian protests.

“Since 2009, pro-Palestinian activists have been gathering on weekends outside the store, harassing customers and employees. The protesters allege their problem with the company is it being based in Mitzpe Shalem, what they consider ‘an illegal and criminal settlement in the occupied territories.’ Protesters also consider the Dead Sea to be “disputed territory” even though a large swath of its shoreline is not even situated in the West Bank, rather in pre-1967 Israel,” The Blaze continues.

While Glenn said he didn’t enjoy the Dead Sea (too hot, too oily, not refreshing, too muddy, blahblahblah), he pointed out that AHAVA has found a way to really use the sea to make some amazing products. “They have found a use for it and it's these Dead Sea products, and my wife uses them and she has really delicate skin and, you know, she really has to take care of her skin. And they are really good products,” Glenn said.

Glenn really took issue with Code Pink’s reaction to the store closing, and their website said “The above images are the end result of a successful campaign to cleanse London’s Monmouth Street of Ahava, a notorious retailer of Dead Sea beauty products made from natural resources plundered from the Palestinian people and manufactured on an illegal West Bank settlement.”

“ (Plundered) from a territory that never belonged to them,” Pat said of the Palestinian’s claim to the land.

Glenn emphasized that AHAVA was not an advertiser on any of his programs, “I've been a purchaser of their products. They're not a purchaser of mine. Do it because it's the right thing.”

“You know, I told you about Levis, that ad that came out on Levis that is, you know, Levis says they want to be the they want to be the product or the uniform of progress? They're showing revolutions, scenes from revolutions in their commercials and they're extolling it: Hey, never sit down. Never sit down. Really? No thank you, Levis. I'm a huge fan of your product. No thank you,” Glenn said.

“The same thing happened with General Motors. No thank you, General Motors. No thank you.”

“I could be the boycott guy, which I never have. I've never told you to turn off Keith Olbermann. He did that himself. I never told you don't buy a product, don't do this.”

“It's your decision. I don't want to put anybody out of business. They will put themselves out of business,” Glenn said.

“I am not going to put my money in any company anymore, if I can help it, that doesn't stand for what I stand for. I'm going to look for, instead of saying I'm going to take my money out of here, I'm going to start looking for companies that actually stand for something. That actually believe in the same things that I do. That are small companies that want to get started,” Glenn said.

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."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
