Will Trayvon Martin case lead to "Bubba Effect"

On GBTV Tuesday, Glenn examined an idea called "The Bubba Effect" and how the tragedy of Trayvon Martin could lead to chaos as the phenomena takes hold. As he gave the latest on the case - and expressed sympathy for the mother as this all unfolds in the public square - Glenn explained why we need to let the justice system run it's course rather than turn to vigilante justice as some radical groups propose.

To start, Glenn described that "The Bubba Effect" takes hold when:

1) People feel they've been pushed over the edge by an overbearing government or force

2) Someone responds with violence

3) The rest of the people, even though they know the violence was wrong, feel the government is worse so they support the person who lashed out

"From there it just gets worse," Glenn said.

Glenn used the example of a terrorist attack to illustrate his point. He said a radical Muslim could hijack a plane and blow up a building. In response, there is increased security by the TSA at airports and other invasive policies. But at the same time, the government doesn't enforce the border, bows to political correctness, and gives a tour of the National Counterterrorism Center to a Hamas operative. All of these are security failures when America is facing a threat.

Glenn said that as people get frustrated, "The Bubba Effect" can take control. In response to the government incompetence and amid rising tension, a guy ends up shooting a Muslim. But when the government arrives, the community stands with the shooter who just committed murder because they think the government is even worse. "The Bubba Effect" has taken hold.

Think it's impossible? Glenn pointed out that the New Black Panthers were now putting up pictures of George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin's killer, with a message saying "Wanted Dead or Alive".

"This is encouraging someone to take matters into their own hands," Glenn said. "That's the basic idea of 'The Bubba Effect'."

"Now, let me be clear: I am not defending George Zimmerman in any way. Right now I think he's most likely guilty," Glenn said.

Glenn said, however, that it's not unlikely to think something could happen to Zimmerman. He's one of the most hated people in the national conversation. The New Black Panthers are calling for an "eye for an eye"; Spike Lee is tweeting out his address; and CAIR is calling for "justice" and so is Farrakhan.

Glenn said if these radical groups, like the Black Panthers, get what they want and Zimmerman is killed in retaliation, it could lead to a "Bubba" to commit further violence and kill a Black Panther in response. And when "The Bubba Effect" takes hold, the "Bubba's" community stand up for the murderer because the government didn't step in to protect Zimmerman when all these radical group's called for vigilante justice before he had his day in court. It just creates chaos and gets worse from there.

"Zimmerman should have his day in court. If he's denied that, if something happens to him, all it does is take America one step closer to more chaos," Glenn said.

Glenn also expressed sympathy from Martin's mother, who has trademarked the phrases "I am Trayvon" and "Justice for Trayvon". Glenn said that he feels like her son is about to be a part of a major movement, as people express their sympathies while others, like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, are accused by former NAACP President C.L. Bryant of trying to exploit the death to racially divide the country.

"I really feel for his mom. Not only has she lost her son, but she's got to deal with his death being argued out in the public square like a political hot potato," Glenn said.

Glenn concluded that while many investigators are calling for the public to let the system run its course, many of the radicals don't want to wait.

"Most of the extremist elements - The Black Panthers, Farrakhan, etc. - are calling for the exact opposite and don't want to wait.

"Let's pray the system takes its course before some lunatic decides to listen to the words of The Black Panthers and try to get an 'eye for an eye'."

"That's not how America works."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
