"Their interests are aligned": Glenn reveals how radicals on all sides are exploiting terror attack

Regardless of whether or not you find the cartoons in the 'Charlie Hebdo' magazine obscene, one thing we can all agree on is that the victims of the Paris attack had a right to print those images to satirize religion. Glenn finds the images incredibly offensive, but that doesn't mean those terrorists had a right to murder twelve people.

In the wake of the attack, Glenn sees many of the forces he has warned about for years coming back to the forefront. Radicals on both the left and the right are using the crisis to force what they want. Radical Islamists are blaming the French government for allowing the offensive cartoons to be printed.

In his opening monologue Thursday night, Glenn returned to the chalkboard to draw the connections between all the groups on the left and the right seeking to exploit the attacks and instability for their own gain.

And in the end he stood where everyone with common sense should. With Charlie.

Below is a transcript of this segment:

But let me go back to stability—I am Charlie. This is the actual newspaper that CNN and FOX News and everybody else is afraid to show you. It’s pretty vile. It’s got some really nasty stuff in it. I don’t think…if this is the way they depicted Jesus, or if you were a Jew and they depicted David or Moses like this, you’d be very upset. We wouldn’t kill people, but we’d be very upset.

So, I want to make sure that you understand, this is obscene. What they’re doing here is wrong; however, in a cultured, civilized society in the West, you have a right to be a dirtbag, and I can’t gun you down on the streets.

We right now have so many problems stacked one on top of each other. Have you ever gotten up in the morning, and you have a shoelace, and it’s been knotted, and it’s been knotted, and it’s been knotted, and you just for the life of you cannot get that knot out? The banking crisis with derivatives, more people out of work than ever before, the oil prices dropping, your food prices rising, printing of money…they just keep tightening that knot. The instability with people turning on the police and the tragedy in France…you’re never going to get that knot out.

There’s nothing you’re going to—at some point, because we didn’t start down here, we didn’t say wait a minute, wait a minute, before we put another knot on top of that, now it’s going to take a radical decision. Now, what you have to do is cut the shoelace and start all over. You just have to cut it out and start all over again.

We’ve covered a lot of stuff this last week trying to show you all of the problems that are stacking up one on top of another, and we’re doing it to build up to a show that airs Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week on Mother Russia, because the story on Mother Russia and what they’re doing now over there is they are purposely tying more knots, and they’re doing it because they want somebody to cut the string, because as soon as the shoelace…we’re walking man, we’re still walking. As soon as that shoelace is cut, all hell breaks loose.

It’s not so bad when you’re just doing it with your shoe, and you can just get another shoelace, and then you can sit there and take the time and do it, but if you’re in a hurry, if you’re moving at the time, you don’t just cut the shoelace. You have to stop down, but if everything is unstable, you’re in trouble when that shoelace is cut, and that’s what the radicals everywhere are trying to do. They are trying to cut the shoelace. They’re trying to get us to start from scratch. That is their goal, and to start from scratch, you have to first cut the knot. You have to break everything apart. You have to attack stability.

I’ve been mocked for this, and man, it is just looking more and more true every single day. Radicals, Islamists, Communists, Socialists work together against Israel, work together against capitalism, work to overturn stability. The protests then become contagious. They cascade. They sweep the Middle East. They begin to destabilize Europe and the rest of the world.

When I say they’re going to work together, what people heard was oh, Glenn Beck says, you know, President Obama is texting ISIS. No, that’s not what I said, and maybe it’s my own fault for not articulating it more clearly here, but some people have an agenda. You know what I mean is the forces working together. " So they’re not attending the same, you know, weekly meetings at Motel 6 right down the street from the forest with the big owl in it, but they’re all encouraging instability and taking advantage of the same events in the process, for example, this shooting in France.

This shooting should really bother you. It’s hitting people hard, and it should. Two things are happening. People are starting to come together, strange bedfellows, like Richard Dawkins. Richard Dawkins is an atheist, and he said yesterday not all religions are violent, but one is. He went on to explain that a little deeper to where I actually agreed with him.

Jon Stuart give a great monologue last night where he said pretty much we should all be worried. You have a right to do this. People in the press are afraid. CNN won’t do this. USA Today will not print any of this. In America?

Now, here’s what concerns me, the reaction from the far right groups—remember, people who are pushing for that knot to break so they can reshape the world, the people pushing for anti-foreign immigration policies in Europe. Now remember, the far right in Europe is not the same in America. In America, the far right is small government, individual liberty. The left is big government, Fascism, Communism, Totalitarianism. Got it?

That’s the true right and left, and the political scale, Democrat and Republican, are up and down, and they slide this direction. Right now, they’re both kind of sliding over here to big government. So the reaction is entirely different from the Tea Party on illegal immigration here in America. In Europe, they are targeting people by race and nationality, and they are using that for a bigger more powerful government.

Right now, about 7% of France’s population is now Muslim…7%. Suspicions and hatreds already exist. This doesn’t come lightly. So when an attack like this happens, there’s a backlash. Let me show you some of the backlash that nobody else is talking about. Why? Because they dismissed that chalkboard I gave you at FOX.

Listen: “This bloodbath proves wrong those who laughed or ignored the fears of so many people about a looming danger of Islamism.” Or this one: “The Islamists, against whom PEGIDA has been warning over the last 12 weeks, showed in France today that they are not capable of (practicing) democracy but instead see violence and death as the solution.”

The leader of Italy’s Northern League tweeted this: “If the MASSACRE of Paris is confirmed to be of ISLAMIC origin [which it has], it’s at this point that we have our ENEMY at home. #stopinvasion @now!”

Marine Le Pen of the Le Pen Party is a party that is being funded by Russia, dangerous party, leader of the National Front in France, she has been speaking out against the attacks, even called for the death penalty to be reinstated. The last person killed by capital punishment is 1977 in France, and they used the guillotine. It’s like California all of a sudden asking for the death penalty, doesn’t happen.

Le Pen has also likened the Muslim population increase in France to the German occupation of the 1940s, but you also have voices such as the radical Islamic cleric Choudary. He reacted to the shooting. Now, remember, USA Today will not show this; however, today in USA Today they printed this op-ed piece, and let me just give it to you.

“Contrary to popular misconception, Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone. Therefore, Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression, as their speech and actions are determined by divine revelation and not based on people’s desires.” You got it? How do you coexist with that?

“So why in this case did the French government allow the magazine 'Charlie Hebdo' to continue to provoke Muslims, thereby placing the sanctity of its citizens at risk?” Oh, the irony, I love this, the irony of using free speech to promote anti-free-speech agenda. The government has no place telling anybody what they can and cannot print, period. No one does. Whether it is an Islamic State with no freedom of speech or the expulsion of all foreigners, both goals can’t happen until somebody cuts the shoestring.

Dozens of groups and forces, millions of individuals chipping away at stability, and it’s now spread to Europe. They’re trying to remold things closer to their heart’s desire. Let me ask you a question, why do you think Sony actually was hacked by North Korea? Do you really think they care about a few lame jokes in The Interview? No. Instability, they see the West as weak right now. What does that really do? If you can make Sony, if you can hack in and you can release all this, well, why not hack into other capitalist companies? Why not take them down?

The 12ers in Iran, the way to prompt the return of the 12th Imam, stir up chaos…Russia is looking now to stir up chaos. You will not believe what we have found. Please, tell all of your friends, tune in Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week. Tell them, tune in. This is a really, really important series of events that no one in the mainstream is talking about.

The enemies of capitalism need capitalism to fail. They go after instability. Now, I’m not saying there’s some secret meeting place in the woods. All of these groups have wildly different goals, but those goals require the same thing to accomplish, instability. At FOX, I told you there would be a time where people would come together to destabilize, and right now they are still working separately, but in a way, in the end, the end result, it’s all the same for them. They have come together.

Create a problem, call out for a strongman to rescue the people. What have they done? The Muslims go out and shoot and say we need a strongman to say this is illegal. What does the far right say? We need a strongman to shut the Muslims out and kick them out. The far right and the radical left and the Islamists are taking advantage of the tragedy in France to gain a rise in popularity.

We haven’t hit our economic crisis yet. When the economic crisis happens, you throw this fuel on the fire, and I am telling you, we have global instability and war. It’s happening in Germany. The left and the right in France are dividing, not uniting. Germany is doing the same thing. We’re doing it to some extent here. My question to you is are we strong enough to withstand the onslaught?

As I was standing here yesterday and the day before, and we had a 3.5, and then an hour later we had a 3.6, and the lights were swinging, and I’m thinking to myself I’ve never lived in an earthquake zone. I don’t know what this is. I don’t know what’s behind these walls. I know that Stage 2 right next door to us, that’s the tornado studio. We go into that stage if there’s a tornado, because it’s a box within a box. We know that that studio has withstood, what, 120-mile-an-hour winds, something like that? Earthquakes, I don’t know. I have no idea.

The ground is unstable. The economy is unstable. Our spiritual lives are unstable. Our culture is unstable. We have ignored the calls of the doctor. We’ve ignored the knotting of the shoes for too long. We didn’t tackle things like multiculturalism when they became trendy. We said oh, well, it doesn’t matter to me. Yes, it does matter, because we’ve lost our culture.

Our culture would say this is wrong. Our culture would say you shouldn’t even draw this. Our culture says this is wrong, but our culture also says I have a right to do it, and you don’t have a right to kill me for it. We don’t even know anymore. We don’t even know. On MSNBC yesterday, they were actually going back and forth on this, and they were comparing this to Jerry Falwell taking Penthouse magazine…was it Penthouse…yeah, Larry Flynt, to court during the Reagan years. That’s not the same as shooting 12 people and injuring another 11.

Old hatreds allowed to rise, evil leaders emboldened by a lack of response, the easy road taken on the economy, the easy road taken on discipline over and over and over again, little things exploited and picked at to make sure that we’re separated, the very words of those who threaten to topple the West ignored…

We had an infection in our big toe in 2000, maybe…maybe 1995. We could have stopped it maybe then. A few years later, we probably lose the toe. We let it fester. We’re going to lose the foot, the leg. If we continue to let this fester and we continue to go down this same course without doing anything about it, we’ll be lucky to lose the leg. We may even die. We have a nasty case going on right now, an infection.

Anybody who tells you that it’s those people, run from them. Run from them. You can say it’s those policies. I say it; it’s those progressive policies that are doing this to us. It is those ideas that many Muslims have in their head about what their religion is, and if that’s what that religion is, then that’s an infection and needs to be burned out. But it’s not the people, it’s the ideas that they have. That’s why George Washington said meet me on the battlefield of ideas.

That’s why these people don’t want you to express ideas. That’s why the media shuts anyone down that has a different idea. Start speaking out on all fronts—I am Charlie. It’s not too late to fight, to start fighting, but it’s getting close.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
