Three reasons Germany just elected a neo-Nazi to the EU

For the first time, the German people have elected a member of the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) to the European Parliament. The son of a Nazi SA assault division member, Udo Voigt is a member of Germany's far-right anti-immigrant party and has faced legal action in the past for referring Hitler was "a great man” and questioning the number of Holocaust deaths. He has also demanded the return of German land lost after World War II. As Yahoo News reported, Voigt received one percent in the German vote for the EU-wide election Sunday. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to Voigt’s election and referenced three specific conditions that he believes contributed to Voigt’s success.

“This is all of the stuff that we said would with happen,” Glenn said. “And it's happening because of three things.”

1. The economy

The economy sucks. The economy absolutely sucks. You know how bad food prices are getting. When the United States of America defaults – or it will never default we'll just print the money – when we print money faster than we are, or when this catches up to us, the food prices around the world are going to go through the roof. Our food prices already are going through the roof. We're buying things with American dollars. They can't. We're effecting the food of the rest of the world. So the rest of the world is going to turn on us and say, it's the bad Americans that caused all of this.

So one, the economy and jobs – it's a nightmare waiting to happen.

2. Immigration

The immigration policies, the same kind of policies that we have here in America. This doesn't mean that you're xenophobic, and it doesn't mean you're a nationalist. It means: Can we have the people here who are doing no harm and contributing to our society? If you want to be an American, you want to be a German, you want to be a South African, you want to be a Palestinian, or whatever, then you've got to fold into the society. That's what you have to do. Otherwise, I don't want you here.

If you can make us better, great. But do you want to be an American? Because if you want to remain an Egyptian, stay in Egypt. They've got lots of room for you. Most of it desert. Lots of room for you. That doesn't make you Xenophobic. But what these nations have done overseas is they have adopted every culture is equal. I'm sorry, but… when one nation and one culture is preaching the Judeo Christian practice of love, and another culture is teaching hate and death, I'm sorry, they are different. And if you don't like it, then go back to Pakistan where you can be surrounded by death and people saying that.

3. The European Union

This is really frightening because it's nationalism. I don't have a problem with loving your country. I love mine. And we are different. And I like going places. I like going to Mexico or Canada and seeing the differences. You go anywhere in America… there's the Gap. There's Ann Taylor. Every town is exactly the same. Now, you go overseas – you can go to Beijing, and oh, there's the Ann Taylor. There's KFC. Literally, there's no difference anymore.

What happened to celebrate diversity? Now everything is the same. I like Italy being Italy, and Germany being Germany, and Spain being Spain. I like that. There's nothing wrong with that, except the business people don't like it as much. It makes it hard to do business. It makes it extremely difficult to gain power over a huge population.

The EU is the problem in Europe. It's the problem with multiculturalism, and it is the problem with the Euro. It doesn't work. And Germany is going to start to have the real problem. Germany is the one that's doing all of the work while the people in France can say, ‘I'm just going to sit on a beach.’ ‘I'm going to work a 21-hour work week while the Germans are working to keep the Euro propped up.’

“It's not going to last,” Glenn concluded. “And because they do not have the understanding of all men are created equal are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights – among these are rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; because they don't have a Bill of Rights that looks at an individual, not the collective; the next Hitler or Stalin will come. And it looks like it's beginning to happen now.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

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.
