Greece: Police go to Nazis

In a scary bit of news from Europe (who would have thought it could get any worse?), several news outlets are reporting that a large number of Greek police officers have cast their support behind the Golden Dawn Party...aka the Nazis! Why? Glenn had the story and his reaction on radio.

"Only 3% of the American population is paying attention to this, but I'm grateful that you listen to this program because I know that you pay attention to this kind of stuff," Glenn told the radio audience to kick off the segment.

"There's two disturbing trends in Greece. One, by far the No. 1 party that was voted for by the police, the Nazis. So, it was ‑‑ the police unions and the police men are tired of the bull crap and tired of getting rocks to the head and so they were looking for somebody that will stop it and the No. 1 person that they voted for was the Nazi. That should be disturbing to most people, that the police would be the first to go to the Nazis. Why? They go because as we have said on this program, eventually people cry out for anybody who will make it stop and the police are the ones on the front lines and they're, like. Somebody has got to stop these anarchists and these communists and they thought the one that would have the strength to do it would be the Nazis," Glenn said.

Russia Today (yes, Putin's propaganda outlet) reported:

More than half of all police officers in Greece voted for the far-right ultra-nationalist party Golden Dawn – described by many as neo-Nazi - in the elections on May 6. This gave them a record 7 per cent of the vote, securing 21 seats in parliament.

The analysis published by the country’s To Vima (The Tribune) newspaper reveals much of the contribution came from the country’s police officers.

The journalists studied the voting results in several constituencies in Athens, where 5,000 police officers in service in the Greek capital cast their ballots.

At some polling stations, the party obtained a striking 19 to 24 per cent of votes. According to the newspaper, at the 11 polling stations (numbered from 806 to 816) located near the police station Ellas, the neo-Nazis received most votes. The four polling stations located near the riot police station MAT, used by the police, recorded percentages of between 13 and 19.

The newspaper underlines these figures are impressive.

Based on the electoral lists, 550 to 700 people voted at each of these voting stations, of which 20 to 30 per cent were police officers.

The newspaper then calculated that 45 to 59 per cent of police officers voted for Golden Dawn.

The ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn, whose flag closely resembles the Nazi swastika, got a share of around 7 per cent of the vote, which threw it from obscurity to winning 21 seats in parliament – the first time to pass the threshold to enter the legislative body.

What's the other disturbing trend?

"So, here's a country that is a relatively small country.  Now, imagine if the New York City ‑‑ half of the New York City area had a run on the bank, what kind of ripple it would send and spread out.  If they ‑‑ half of New York City decided, 'We've got to take our money out of the bank', imagine what that would send the next day to the rest of the country, if half of New York said, 'Get your money out of the bank', and there was a run on the bank and they took out a million dollars in savings.  That's what happened yesterday, a billion dollars taken out of the banks from those ‑‑ from 11 million people in Greece, 11 million people, enough of them went to the bank yesterday to cause a run on the banks and take a billion dollars out.  That's not going to last long."

"There's a run on the bank and the signals are being sent now, prepare for an impact now, put your seat in the upright position and secure your tray tables because the Euro is coming apart and coming down."

"What you remember, thank goodness, is we told you it would happen and now it is and so you're prepared, but what everybody else is failing to tell you is not only what's really happening in Greece, what's really happening in Europe, but now they no longer will remind you that as Europe goes, so do we.  It might help us for a short period of time, but the thing to do is be informed and ready to go because the world doesn't end.  Jesus isn't coming back.  I mean, well, he is, but I don't know when he's coming back and I prefer not to be planning my whole life around Jesus coming back."

"Life goes on it.  It always does.  It went on in the 1930's whether there was a crash in the United States and there was a crash in Europe.  Life goes on.  It just depends on what we look like at the end of it."

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
