‘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."

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
