#7 Glenn schools MSM on Arab Spring
When riots and protests broke out at the beginning of the year in Tunisia, Egypt, Syria & elsewhere throughout the Middle East - the mainstream media celebrated this as a peace loving movement for freedom. Glenn was the only voice warning of the possible problems that could arise. While admitting that coddling leaders like Mubarak wasn't ideal, it may be better than the alternative. Glenn highlighted the anti-Semitism among the protesters and the popularity of radical, violent anti-Israel groups whose goal is restoring the Caliphate seizing power in the fallout. Glenn was mocked, even by 'conservatives' like Bill Kristol.

Glenn also warned that this unrest would spread throughout Europe and eventually land in the United States. He was mocked for this as well.
GLENN 2, KRISTOL/MSM 0
So far the glorious Democratic freedom loving revolution promised by the MSM has not happened. Instead there is only more uncertainty, more military rule, and not democracy. When will the media learn?
Glenn also went to great lengths to help explain, inform and give as much background as possible to understand the volatile situation in the Middle East. Iran has been mending ties in the region and cobbling together a coalition of nations who now side with them. Very disturbing considering this is a nation who has vowed several times to 'wipe Israel off the map' and kill every Jew remaining there. Glenn Beck's original documentary Rumors of War 2 was so important in Glenn's eyes he made it free for everyone to see. If you haven't yet watched it -- check it out HERE.
Another powerful show designed to help educate was the 'Truth about the Muslim Brotherhood' that aired on 10/6 on GBTV. The Obama administration has made clear it does not believe the Muslim Brotherhood is a dangerous group, and showed their ignorance by claiming it was a 'secular' organization. The 'Muslim' Brotherhood is Secular. Feel safe? Didn't think so. Check out a segment from the show HERE.
#6 Now that you know what's coming: PREPARE
Glenn is a one man party wrecking machine. It doesn't matter how good of a time you're having, if Glenn Beck enters the room it's like an astronaut opening the window while in orbit: every ounce of jovial spirit is immediately sucked right out. But it's hard not to want to shake people and wake em up when you see the mountain of evidence as to what is headed our way. There are more people - from the bottom to the highest of levels in the United States government - who abhor the Capitalist/Free Market system and seek to destroy it. Glenn urged everyone to work this string of shocking audio clips into the Thanksgiving conversation somehow (no small feat: 'Can you pass me the sweet potatoes? Hey did anyone see what Andy Stern said about capitalism?'). The clips highlight many (but amazingly not all) instances of the free market being under assault – WATCH.
Step 2 in this process is to prepare. Why should you be 'prepared' because a growing movement of people don't like Capitalism? Because the only way to defeat Capitalism is to collapse the system and say, 'See, it failed! Time for something new'... And voila, we have Europe style socialism! And we all know Socialism is just a stop on the road to Communism. Point being -- these same people who hate Capitalism are trying to collapse the economy (see Occupy: Port shutdowns, attacking stores, etc -- see Europe: union shutdowns, shipping, trucking etc). Are you ready to survive a massive shutdown? You should be. Not ready? Glenn did a full episode on GBTV back on October 13th on the steps you should take to prepare.
