Riots and violence break out across Middle East, White House blames 14 minute YouTube video

As you probably know by now, there have been multiple attacks on U.S. embassies, along with an increase in anti-American protests and anti-American violence throughout the Middle East. Despite the overwhelming evidence that points otherwise, such as these attacks beginning on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, the White House is pushing the narrative that this is all about one movie. Here is what they had to say:

"We need to understand this is a fairly volatile situation and it's not in response to United States policy, not to obviously the administration, not to the American people. It is in response to a video. A film. We have judged to be reprehensible that in no way that has any violent reaction to it. But this is not a case of protests directed at the United States at large or U.S. policy. This is in response to a video that is offensive."

This morning on radio, Glenn, who predicted riots spreading across the Middle East over a year ago, made note of the ridiculousness of this concept coming from this administration. The idea that a "film" would spark riots and violence, which included the killing of a U.S. Ambassador, as opposed to our policies or the announcement of budget cuts coming that include embassy protection.

Pat pointed out that the "film" is actually a 14 minutes YouTube video.

Stu, who did actually watched the film, described it as hilarious - not because it's making fun of Islam, but because of how terrible it is.

"The script said George for the character that is Mohammed and so the actors went through and did this part as if it was George.  And then the guy went in afterwards and just put it Mohammed," Stu explained before imitating how horrible the film is.  

"It's as if a child put this together," he added.

Regardless of how good, bad, or stupid the video actually is, it's still not as excuse for riots, violence, murders, or any of the chaos the White House is blaming on it. Even if that is what the extremists were blaming their acts for, the White House of all entities shouldn't dumb down the fundament reason for attacks like this: extreme intolerance and hatred for the West.

"If your religion or your god is afraid of this movie, he's just not god enough for me," Glenn said. "He is just not god enough for me."

It's not a video that is the problem, but even if it were, it's the reaction to the video that is the problem.

Beyond that, Glenn also pointed out that these attacks started on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, yet the administration is blaming a video. He noted that the White House is using the ridiculous 14 minutes on YouTube to serve as a giant distraction from a handful of unprecedented events that took place over the last few days.

"Because of that video hitting last week we didn't get a chance to celebrate and remember the good things and bad things of September 11th.  Because of that video we're not asking, "hey did the government sell arms or give arms to the rebels in Libya? What happened to those arms?"  Because of this darn video, I was at the gas station this weekend, and it cost me over $100 to fill the tank. And all I can think of is, not for first time in history gas is over $4 a gallon nationwide, but about that damn video," Glenn said sarcastically.

Beyond that, it was announced on Friday that the Fed has decided to move forward with more quantitative easing. But not just the old fashion quantitating easing that was cause bad inflation, this time its unlimited - nonstop money printing which is the "Weimar moment."

"Luckily I turned it over to Fox, and they were talking about that damn video, and asking "is it responsible? Is it not responsible?" Glenn added.

But there's more. America was also downgraded again as a nation last week, but no one is talking about that, thanks to the laser focus on this video. Bank of America came out and said that gold could be $3300/ounce and oil will be $199 barrel by 2013.

This administration is using a video as an excuse, a scapegoat, and a shield against their own bad policies.

"Tens of people saw the video. Tens of people saw the video," Glenn noted. "Thank goodness the government has gone in after the maker of this horrible YouTube video."

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
