WATCH: Dana Loesch slams Zimmerman protesters for their 'progressive utopian dream'

Conservative radio host Dana Loesch guest-hosted last night's Glenn Beck Program, and she opened the show with an impassioned monologue criticizing those who protest on behalf of Trayvon Martin while ignoring the overwhelming violence gripping the "progressive utopian dream" of Chicago on a daily basis.

"So let’s look at the facts," Dana said. "Youth are the biggest target in Chicago – black youth. In 2012, Chicago had 100 more murders then in New York City, 215 more than Los Angeles, and according to the Chicago Reporter and other statistics, from 2008 to 2012, half of Chicago’s nearly 2,500 homicide victims were killed before they reached their 25th birthdays."

That number alone is staggering, but it doesn't even begin to capture the extent of the problem. The Bureau for Justice Statistics reports anywhere from 8,000 to 9,000 black Americans are killed every year, and 93% of those murders are committed by other black Americans.

So where are the riots, the feigned outrage, and protestors decrying those statistics?

"Now, if all of these people out there protesting for Trayvon are so concerned about the death of a youth, then where have they been these past ten years," Dana asked. " It’s a farce. It’s a distraction, and if people really cared about the loss of black youth, they would be asking what the hell is going on in their communities. They would be asking why black youth are dying at an epidemic rate. This violence is a symptom of a problem."

Aside from the horrendous crime rates, looking at Chicago as a case study is disheartening. Many Chicago communities see half their residents living in poverty with failing schools and very little economic opportunity. Furthermore, the family unit has been all but obliterated.

"Now, these statistics are as equally depressing," Dana said, "but you know, Chicago is just the progressive utopian dream, right? This is President Obama’s backyard."

"You have to ask why, with the first black president, are black Americans one of the demographics, along with women, so adversely affected by his policies. Why is dependence upon government assistance at an all-time high," Dana questioned. "Oh, I see change, but there’s no hope to be found. And why does it take a white girl with American Indian ancestry asking these questions? Why is this not a topic of analysis on BET or One News or with Al Sharpton? That’s the question we should be asking."

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
