‘The East’ glorifies eco-terrorists attacking corporations

A couple of summers ago, Glenn warned that there could come a time where the rich "evil" corporate executives would be demonized to a point where they had been completely dehumanized. That with factors like hunger, anger, job loss, fear, and poverty this could lead to them becoming targets of violence.

After hearing an alarming movie trailer, Glenn warned that, "because we are sowing the seeds of hatred so deeply that when you add on top of it anger, hunger, job loss, fear, when you add those things into the mix that have still not yet arrived, darkness will sweep if we are not holding each other up." Before playing the clip, Stu reminded the radio audience to compare what they're about to hear to the way the media reacts to Glenn.

"Think about this in the context of Glenn says an offhanded comment or goes through a news story and that sort of stuff supposedly causes violence," Stu said.

"We are the East.  We don't care how rich you are.  We want all those who are guilty to experience the terror of their crime.  It's easy when it's not your life.  Easy when it's not your home.  But when it's your fault, it shouldn't be so easy to sleep at night. 

Especially when we know where you live.  Lie to us; we'll lie to you.  Spy on us; we'll spy on you.  Poison us; we'll poison you.  We will counterattack three corporations in the next six months for the worldwide terrorism, and this is just the beginning."

"This is so evil," Glenn responded after the clip ended. "It is flat‑out evil.  I'm telling you I don't think I've seen anything so evil as this.  This may be a crappy movie.  I don't know anything about it, but this is evil.  This direction is absolutely evil.  You cannot tell me that movies don't affect people."

Not to say that Hollywood is responsible for any real acts of violence — they're not. That responsibility falls with the individual committing the act, but Glenn's point is what is happening to our culture. What is put into culture will shape a society. And movies do have the power to impact people — especially young people. Glenn also pointed out the hypocrisy made when people say that movies don't impact people.

If a 2 hour long movie can impact a person in some way, explain commercials.

"If you've been trying to convince people that your ads in 10, 30, and 60 second bites move people to do something, to go out and buy a product, try something new, see it in a totally different way; if 10, 30, and 60 second spots can do that, what makes you think that a 90‑minute movie that plays right into a subculture doesn't move people?" Glenn asked. 

"Yeah, the movie is specifically about an eco terrorist group that are going to, because they've been wronged, feel free to go and kill executives from companies because corporations, as you know, are evil," Stu said.

"They set up that premise that these corporations are poisoning people all over the world," Pat added. "It's because of their world terrorism."

"You plant these seeds, I'm telling you we will reap what we sow.  You plant these seeds and no good will come of it," Glenn said.

Glenn emphasized that he's not talking about banning this or any other movie — admitting that he doesn't know the details about the movie. What he's pointing out is the direction of society. The direction of "entertainment".

"Is there anybody, anybody on the left, anybody in Hollywood that has a should left to them?" he asked. "Is there anybody that says, 'Maybe we should life people up?' Is there anybody that is trying to put light in the world instead of darkness?"

While the mainstream news organizations like to highlight 'conservative TEA Partiers' as terror suspects in almost every situation that arises, Stu notes that there is only one non-Muslim on our country's terror list: a left wing animal activist terrorist. There are zero right-wingers.

Yet, that's who Hollywood has decided to highlight as the 'good guy, underdog' in this film: the left-wing eco-terrorist.

"And you know what?  We don't even talk about it.  We don't talk about animal activists like this.  We don't talk about ELF or ALF.  We don't talk about Muslims," Glenn said. "They're not terrorists.  What are you talking about?  We can't even say that.  The only terrorist we ever talk about is Timothy McVeigh, and he wasn't a Christian, either.  But I'll be damned if you don't think he's a Christian."

The media and the White House will demonize the NRA and other conservative groups though. Ironically, the only groups, Glenn points out, that will side-by-side with those that they disagree with vehemently in an effort to preserve their rights.

Glenn noted that while giving his NRA speech, which lasted an 1 hour and 40 minutes, his focus was on compassion and love — that those things will maintain and preserve freedom.

"Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jesus — my speech talked about how we have to have more responsibility," he said.

But all Media Matters, followed by others in the MSM, picked up on was one graphic used during the speech…and they didn't even report on that correctly.

The media will likely glorify this movie and ignore the subtle message it sends to its viewers. Glenn compared it to the way the leaders in our country are viewing China. Using China as the model seems to be the direction the U.S. is headed, yet what's happening there goes against so much of what Democrats preach about the middle class and equality.

"The smog you can see from space.  The rivers are running red with chemicals.  300,000 pigs were found floating dead in a river recently.  People, the rich hire look‑alikes to go and stand trial and serve their time in prison.  Their solution for their awful, awful system, for their workers, is to put suicide nets all around Foxconn so you can't kill yourself.  You'll just bounce on the net and go back to work.  Good God almighty, do you see where the world is headed?" Glenn asked.

"If the United States of America, if the West falls, forget about the red, white and blue.  If the West falls, if decent God‑fearing Americans, if decent God‑fearing Canadians... if those who understand what made the West great, if they fall, the world will weep for decades, if not centuries.  Where will the world run for freedom? 

We have an eternal responsibility.  I am a flawed messenger.  I don't know how to say it.  You have to be worn out from listening to me for the last ten years.  I don't know how else to get the message out, but somebody in this audience does.  Will it be you?  Will you find a new way?  Can you use new media is this can you use Facebook, Twitter?  Can you find a new way?  Is there an artist throughout?  Is there a video, a video producer out there?  Is there a songwriter?  Is there a moviemaker?  Is there a preacher or a pastor or a rabbi that will stand?  We're running out of time, America.  We're running out of time, and hatred and violence is not the answer.  Peace, love, and God.  He is our rock, He is our salvation, He is our hiding place.  And if we don't stand now, may I suggest, suggest that you strengthen that hiding place, fortify it because what you see and hear in this movie will not be a movie.  We'll be lucky if the world turns out to be as sane as China."

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
