Glenn on ISIS: This is the greatest evil we have seen since the 1930s

A new map illustrating the growing power of ISIS shows the militant group has made inroads beyond Iraq and Syria into Jordan and even Iran. On radio this morning, Glenn referred to ISIS as the “greatest evil” the world has seen since the 1930s and questioned whether the Obama Administration sufficiently understands the threat of a caliphate.

While the world has witnessed various humanitarian atrocities and genocides in the last century, Glenn believes the tactics of ISIS make them a unique kind of evil.

“This is the greatest evil I think we have seen since the 1930s. I don't know of a greater evil than this that is so clear,” Glenn said. “When China was evil and just shooting people in the head, when you see what's happening over in North Korea, you have to get the drawings out of that. The only reason we know about the camps is because survivors escape and then they draw. There's no pictures.”

“[In this case], not only are we seeing pictures, they are taking the pictures,” he continued. “It's not like we went over with a hidden camera. They are the ones taking them and putting them up on Twitter [and] Facebook and saying, ‘Look at us!’”

When you look at the map of ISIS presence and control, it paints an even more frightening picture:

“They're all over – with control in parts of Jordan, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran,” Glenn said. “That's not some little thing. That is the beginning of the caliphate… And there's more of this coming.

Glenn found himself particularly frustrated by what feels like a lack of urgency or even understanding from the Obama Administration.

As Media Matters has pointed out time and time again, Glenn began talking about the threat of a caliphate several years ago. In 2011, the George Soros-funded group criticized Glenn for talking about the topic. All the while, on June 29, 2011, now-CIA director John Brennan had this to say about the caliphate:

“Our strategy is … shaped by a deeper understanding of al Qaeda’s goals, strategy, and tactics. I’m not talking about al Qaeda’s grandiose vision of global domination through a violent Islamic caliphate. That vision is absurd, and we are not going to organize our counterterrorism policies against a feckless delusion that is never going to happen. We are not going to elevate these thugs and their murderous aspirations into something larger than they are.”

“Nobody in Congress is saying, ‘Hey, John Brennan said this. He was so wrong… and our intelligence community was this wrong,’” Glenn concluded. “And I got news for you: There's no way our intelligence community didn't know this. I know people who were former intelligence… They are not dummies… You could see these things coming on the horizon for a million miles. [So] why did we purposefully choose to close our eyes to a caliphate?”

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.
