Is the ‘enemy’ in this new video game really a Tea Party member?

The latest iteration of a popular first-person shooter video game is sure to ruffle some feathers. Battlefield Hardline will not be released until March 2015, but a recently released trailer seems to indicate players will be fighting against an enemy that bears a close resemblance to what the left would characterize as a racist Tea Partier.

“Let's go to the game that has just come out that makes American constitutionalists and Tea Party people the enemy. And you can go and shoot them,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Let's go to the game that has just come out that makes American constitutionalists and Tea Party people the enemy. And you can go and shoot them,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Anybody have a problem with this?”

As TheBlaze reports, the trailer shows the game’s main character escape from prison with a partner. Along the way, they come across a man who is describing the events that led to “the denigration, the humbling, the tearing down of everything that made this country great.” The protagonist later chokes a man wearing a jacket prominently featuring the Gadsden flag.

When the main character crosses into ‘enemy’ territory later in the trailer, the Gadsden flag is again on display – this time hanging on the wall of a building.

“Can you imagine if you could go into one of these games and you could shoot people in mosques,” Glenn asked. “Imagine what would be said?”

While the free market will decide whether or not this game is successful, Glenn did worry about the message it sends to kids playing the game who may not know any better.

What are the kids who play this going to think,” Pat asked. “They're not going to be able to differentiate.”

“That's exactly what I thought,” Glenn added. “If Raphe went over to somebody's house, and they had this… He knows when we're around that that flag will fly… He knows that we're members of the Tea Party, if you will. We support it. He goes over and plays that game… ‘Well, wait a minute, My dad believes in some of those things.’ What does he think?”

According the game's official website, “Right and wrong isn’t always that clear. With a fresh new style inspired by from the most popular crime dramas seen on television today, Battlefield Hardline’s gritty story will take you through so many twists and turns, you won’t be able to wait until the next episode.”

Pat said his sons used to love to play early versions of the Battlefield game, and the latest installment is likely to sell well. Ultimately, there is a legitimate concern when it comes to what type of information young people are gleaning from these types of games.

“Battlefield is a huge game,” Pat concluded. “That's not some offshoot or some little-known game. Millions people play this including my two sons used to play this all the time when we were still doing the video game thing. They loved it. Absolutely loved it.

“There's a new game developer behind it, which may be part of the reason why they've gone down these roads,” Stu concluded. “But you're right. How are they going to differentiate?”

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

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.
