"Delusional ravings"? Glenn hits back at critics who ignored warnings of Muslim Brotherhood ascension

Update: Tonight on GBTV, Glenn went into depth on the people in the media who got the story on the Muslim Brotherhood right and the overwhelming number of people on both the right and the left who got it wrong. You can get those details HERE

When news broke of the Muslim Brotherhood winning the presidency in Egypt over the weekend, viewers and listeners of The Glenn Beck Program probably weren’t too surprised. After all, Glenn has been warning about Islamic extremists rising to power in the Middle East ever since the Arab Spring first grew to national attention in late January of 2011. Unfortunately, the mainstream media was way behind the curve on this story, with many on the right and the left criticizing Glenn for thinking that radicals would take control of Egypt.

Take, for instance, Bill Kristol’s infamous statement:

But hysteria is not a sign of health. When Glenn Beck rants about the caliphate taking over the Middle East from Morocco to the Philippines, and lists (invents?) the connections between caliphate-promoters and the American left, he brings to mind no one so much as Robert Welch and the John Birch Society. He’s marginalizing himself, just as his predecessors did back in the early 1960s.

Nor is it a sign of health when other American conservatives are so fearful of a popular awakening that they side with the dictator against the democrats. Rather, it’s a sign of fearfulness unworthy of Americans, of short-sightedness uncharacteristic of conservatives, of excuse-making for thuggery unworthy of the American conservative tradition.

Or how about David Brooks who said:

There was an interesting split among the Glenn Beck types, really with delusional ravings about the Caliphate coming back. And I would say the conservative establishment which was, this is a fulfillment of Ronald Reagan's democracy during ‑ there was that interesting split and there were really some fights including between Bill Kristol and Glenn Beck this week….Right, this is wonderful, what are you raving about? It's not the taking over of the Muslim ‑‑and Glenn Beck for the first time began to see a lot of serious conservatives taking on Beck and people like that saying, you know, your theories are whacky.

And, perhaps one of the worst, senior intelligence advisor for the White House James Clapper said:

“The term ‘Muslim Brotherhood’…is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried al-Qaida as a perversion of Islam.”

Meanwhile, Glenn was one of the only voices warning of the possible problems that could arise from the Arab Spring:

On radio this morning, Glenn took some time to address his critics, taking particular aim at David Brooks.

“Theories are just whacky,” Glenn said after replaying the David Brooks audio from last year.

“They were in Tahrir Square over the weekend just, you know, Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar. And the Muslim Brotherhood now has officially taken over in Egypt. But don't worry about it. President Obama says it's all good, it's all good,” he said.

“According to an Arab language report last Tuesday, closed‑door senior‑level Brotherhood confab, the Islamist group intends to get rid of film and ‘artistic heritage.’ That's a quote. They are going to replace police uniforms with Islamic garb and make memorization of Islam's holy book a precondition for advancement in school. The sweeping changes dubbed now the Jazira Plan, will be put into ‑‑ put into place as soon as Dr. Morsi assumes the presidency, this according to a report over in the Middle East this weekend,” Glenn read.

“The first step in the plan is to replace the National Anthem with the so called anthem of the Islamic Caliphate,” he explained. “ Soon followed by the abolition of the ministry of information, replacing it with Islamic media organization whose sole aim will be to publish Islamic heritage only.”

“That's some delusional ranting you just did there,” Stu joked.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
