The Left vs. The Right: It's all about context

This morning on radio Glenn went through two stories that were recently in the news, both have to do with anti-patriotic protests from the left.

The first is a story out of New York City. Last week, reported on a Brooklyn principal who banned children from singing ‘God Blass the USA’ during their kindergarten graduation program, claiming she didn’t “want to offend other cultures.”

This week those same children were heckled for singing the song at a protest in a nearby park. reports:

Parents, outraged by Principal Greta Hawkins’ decision to ban the song, organized the protest and invited Rep. Bob Turner (R-NY) to attend (he’s running against Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand). But the event, which was assembled to allow the children and families to make their opposition to Hawkins’ stance known, went terribly wrong when some adults chose to shout over the children in protest.

“The left shows up, and what does the left do? They decide to scream at the schoolchildren. I mean, we're talking little kids, scream at the schoolchildren,” Glenn said.

In the audio clip of the protest you can hear the children in the background singing “God Bless America,” and the protest trying to shout over them screaming, “Burn in hell! You’re all going to burn in hell!”

“They’re all going to burn in hell for singing “God Bless America”?” Pat asked.


Glenn quickly jumped over to the other story – this one of a flag burning out of Oakland, California. In this clip far left protesters are burning an American flag and singing. As they sing, you can hear them saying “America, F* you”.

“They won’t burn in hell, the flag will just burn. But when you sing “God Bless America,” that’s when you’re going to burn,” Pat said noting the left’s hypocritical logic.

The left has been protesting America, capitalism and the Constitution for years. It was the same story in the 1960's, just different characters. But, what Glenn points out next is the ultimate irony of the left. The shameful parts of American history that the far left loves to highlight, the reasons they burn the flag in anger and yell at children singing songs like "God Bless America" is never put into context.

Van Jones likes to highlight the horrible history of what America did to the Native Americans, but ironically little attention is ever put on progressive Andrew Jackson, who was operating under the guise of "Manifest Destiny". The far left calls conservatives racists, even President Obama has made comments about rounding people up off the streets, but which Presidents actually did these things? Woodrow Wilson and FDR.

Glenn went on to ask Pat who he had learned more anti-American history/stories from, Barack Obama, Van Jones or him.

“Definitely you,” Pat answered.

While many on the extreme left say they hate America, they rarely provide substantive history or facts as to why. On the other hand, Glenn, who loves America, is willing to tell the truth, both bad and good, about American history – in context.

“MSNBC and their hosts are always bashing America, but they’re not putting it into context. They’re not telling you why the bad things happened the way they did. They are just telling you that they happened, so you think it’s a bad country,” Pat said. “They are not telling you it’s their own compatriots who share the ideology they do on those things. They don’t say 'that was my hero, FDR.' They don’t say 'that was my hero, one of the founders of my movement, Woodrow Wilson.' They never say that.”

Glenn added that the difference between the left and the right is that the right doesn’t want America destroyed – the same thing goes for libertarians, and the crazy extreme libertarians that will protest with Occupy because they agree on one point. The difference is that the left is preaching destruction, while the right is for construction. The right typically stands for something, while the left is only standing against something.

“We've [America] got serious issues, but we can deal with them – we can fix them,” Glenn said. “They want to destroy it. And that's the difference between us. Do you want to destroy it, or do you want to say, "We can be better than this"? Because that's the thing that all of our founders had in common. That's the thing that all of our great presidents had in common. Not the revisionist history progressive but the true great presidents, they all had something in common and they believed in the American people, they believed in the individual, and they believed that we could be better tomorrow than we are today. I believe that. I think you do.”

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.
