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."

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

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.
