Occupy Oakland turns violent overnight

Jon Stewart says that no one would be down with somebody throwing trashcan through a Starbucks - but last night thats the kind of thing that happened at 'Occupy Oakland' which is quickly becoming the epicenter of the protests as things begin to cool off in the Northeast. But even though the place descended into full scale riots, the news was still trying to say that the protesters were "mostly peaceful". Does it matter that a small number of protesters actually gave into their violent tendencies? Does it matter that they embraced the radical pose to achieve the radicals ends?

One group, the Oakland Liberation Front, put out this message:

Are you a passivist? How dare you even ask for nonviolence when violence has already been used by the police. Will you still be standing there with a peace sign when all the police spray the crowd with water canons? What if they fire teargas from a helicopter? Will you be able to stop the LRAD, the Long‑range Acoustic Device from confusing, controlling, and then arresting comrades? The answer is no. You two will experience the terror and more. Your efforts, your bodies. Your bodies? Wow, that sounds almost like "blow yourself up. " Your bodies, your peace signs are the exact forms of medication the State requires to neutralize people's individual assertion to their own desires, goals, reclamations, joy and anger. If you desire economic justice, then we encourage you to pursue it. Meanwhile, we wild ones will go beyond that demand. We seek total transformation of society. We seek the complete annihilation of capitalism. We want to start over together. We're going to begin that process on Wednesday. We won't stop if you don't stop us. Are you with us or against us? Signed, the Oakland Liberation Front.

"For the most part people are not members of the Oakland Liberation Front... but there are some that are," Glenn said. The important question is if their statement matters. What does it mean for the people of Oakland.

"By the way, Van Jones is from Oakland, California. That's where he really planted his radical roots. By the way, completely unrelated: Oakland is now being called the capital of the Occupy Wall Street. That is strange. There's a capital now," Glenn said.

In the middle of the riot, a man was trapped in his car when protesters surrounded him and wouldn't let him move forward. The man slammed on his gas and ended up hitting one of the protesters but he was ultimately released by the police to the fury of protesters.

"This is a real problem because you're going to now start dealing with things that you never thought you'd have to deal with. Have you ever thought that? 'What do I do if somebody blocks my car in the middle of the road. What do I do?'" Glenn said.

"Look, there is a point where you gun it. I don't know if this guy made the right decision about where that point is but there is a point," Stu said.

"I don't know what the right thing is. I do think he made the wrong move. But what do you do? God forbid I have my children in my car," Glenn added.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
