"Kill Glenn Beck!": NATO Protests in Chicago turn violent

[gbtvembed content_id="21632677"]

A lot happened in Chicago over the weekend, but the media continues to treat the tumultuous Facebook IPO as the main story of the day. But they are missing the story that Glenn has been warning about since September of last year - these protests are going to turn increasingly violent. Would they have covered this if it was a Tea Party rally? Of course. Especially if someone in the crowd was wearing a "Kill Rachel Maddow" shirt. But since it's the "mostly peaceful" OWS and Glenn Beck's name on the shirt...who cares?

"Chicago we've had ‑‑ we had one person arrested for terrorism.  I'm sorry, we had two people?  We had five people?  How many people got arrested for terrorism before the media starts to pay attention to terrorists?  This is an anarchist group.  They were in Cleveland, Occupy Wall Street.  They tried to blow up the bridges in Cleveland.  The media said virtually nothing.  And now we have people, two were arrested yesterday.  I believe five were arrested on Saturday, and their intent was to blow up buildings and blow up the presidential reelection headquarters in Chicago.  But apparently nobody, nobody really cares about that.  Apparently that's no big deal," Glenn said.

The Blaze reported, "Three men arrested earlier this week when police raided a Chicago apartment were being held on terrorism conspiracy charges Saturday stemming from allegations that they tried to make Molotov cocktails ahead of the NATO summit."

A Chicago journalist reported, " Protestors clash with police, basically they wanted those protestors up on the sidewalks, some were down on the street and when we walked down on the street, they took them to the ground, arrested them.  They pulled out the billy club with some of them.  And they also saw some police being washed down.  Some we understand were doused with urine from some of the protestors and they had to be washed down before returning back to their normal role. And I can tell you right now we are at the institute, we're starting to see the crowd get a little bit more tense.  We see things flying around very similar to what we saw back on Van Buren and Wabash."

And beyond the urine throwing and the terrorism arrests and everything else, one protester on a local news broadcast was seen sporting a "Kill Glenn Beck" shirt:

 

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
