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."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.
