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.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
