Does Glenn stand by 'controversial' comments? Yup

The media is going off on Glenn for daring to criticize the Marxist, anti-Capitalist protesters and explaining that these are the people America should be worried about. Not the useful idiots who don't know why they are down there or are having sex in tarps - but the people carrying around bankers heads on a pike and calling elected officials threatening to shoot and kill innocents if the taxes on the rich are not raised. Glenn explained on radio today.

Yesterday Glenn said, "They will come for you and drag you into the streets and kill you. They are not messing around. Those in the media, and I say this ‑‑ I am included in this: They will drag us out into the streets and kill us. If you're wealthy, they will kill you for what you have. You can't ‑‑ you cannot tolerate this kind of stuff. You certainly don't encourage it."

The liberal media as decided to ridicule Glenn for making these comments - but why did he say them? Could it be because, historically, communism and revolution like that being called for on Wall Street has led to chaos?

"Let me explain," Glenn said. He then went through a long list of violence committed by communist and Marxist revolutionaries.

First, Glenn criticized the revolutionary icon Che Guevara, pulling out a book that records his involvement with the killing of people. Next, the Ukraine, where seven million starved to death.

"They shot people as they were trying to go into the fields just to eat anything. They were eating mud, they were eating rocks, they were eating anything they could. Seven million people in one year Marxists killed in the Ukraine," Glenn said.

How about the number dead by Mao and his communist policies? 60 million.

Glenn continued, "Stalin, you know what Stalin's main job was? Stalin's first job with Lenin was to go and make sure that you kill all the shop owners. You kill all the merchants. You kill all the capitalists. You take the farms and kill the farmers. Do you know why people starved to death in the Ukraine? You know why socialism never works? Because they kill all the people who know how to make things. They kill all the industrialists. They kill them all. They drag them in the streets and kill them. Do you know why Russia couldn't keep time? Do you know why all of ‑‑ I'm a watch collector. Do you know why I have two Russian watches, two Soviet watches. One of them was given to me as a gift from a former KGB agent who put it in my hands and was practically crying saying, 'Please keep telling the story; I know who these people are. I used to be one of them.' You know why they ‑‑ all their watches suck? Because they killed all the watchmakers. That's what they do."

"It is always the same way. Now, those are Marxists," Glenn said.

Glenn then moved onto the French Revolution and collectivism.

"How did that end? Do you know what in the end, they were beheading children? They got to the point to where Robespierre was killed. They got to the ‑‑ by the time they got to the end, the crowds were horrified by these revolutionaries because they just kept going. They just kept going. And everybody betrayed the revolution," Glenn said.

"Once you start down this hate road, it just doesn't end. First you've got to get rid of these guys, then you've got to get rid of these guys, then you've got to get rid of these guys. It just never ends. They were beheading little children at the end. The crowds were horrified. They first were cheering, then they were horrified."

So Che, Mao, Stalin, the Soviet Union, the French Revolution, and more all ended in death, violence, and murder. And note that Glenn was able to completely destroy the idea of benevolent Marxism/Socialism/Communism utopia without even focusing on Nazi Germany.

Now why does he think that this could happen in America? Because he's played audio of all the people leading the progressive movement advocating the Marxist policies that have led to it all happening before, and now people are in the streets calling for revolution, an end to capitalism, and a new society.

Don't believe it? Watch the video below for people advocating the same policies that have led to violence in history:

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."

RESTORING HOPE: Join Glenn live from Standing Rock Ranch to restore the American covenant

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
