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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
