Glenn: 'Selma' is a movie every American needs to see

We saw Selma tonight. I really wanted to see it but at the same time I worried about the spin of the story. It is an Oprah movie. She attended Jeremiah Wright's church. If she could sit through those sermons, God only knows what she really believes. The last thing I want to do is be preached to about how racist America is.

Would it be a message movie or would they tell the whole truth and let it speak for itself?

I am thrilled to say, this is a movie that every American should see.

First. Every cop killer, looter, liar and "take it because I've been wronged and I am owed good things" American needs to watch. Listen in particular to what a friend of Coretta Scott King says to her before she goes in to speak to Malcolm X.

"We come from a proud and noble people. People who have struggled and fought and survived slave ships. But created great civilizations. We were the first people. We can overcome anything. We are Noble."

They need to watch to see what people went through so they COULD VOTE! They just wanted to have control of their lives and make their own way fairly. They were educated against all odds, brave for no reason and had tremendous faith even though God hadn't be clearly present for a long time.

Inspiring and damning of today's attitude and behavior.

I was also shocked and glad they told the truth about mlks personal flaws, I am glad that they did not harp on it, but they did address it. I thought this was important. It shows that he was not perfect and that if we just are willing to obey Him, he will not be thwarted. He will use anyone who says, I may be afraid, but I will do as you ask. Watch the kneeling scene on the bridge, powerful God moment. Again, willing to be unpopular because a God told him.

Important to note that 1/3 of those marching were white.

Every progressive should see LBJ in all his racist glory. Notice the painting of Andrew Jackson on his wall. Anti hero. Read up on how the civil right act was originally a republican bill that LbJ blocked in the senate in the late 1950s. That it was the republicans who were the champions not the democrats. *kennedy's were the exception. Especially RFK.

Don't let the movie fool you on one very important point: George Wallace was a DEMOCRAT. HIS ENTIRE LIFE. The only flaw,beside historical nit picking (Resolute desk was in the Smithsonian after JFK and not in the Oval etc), was the fact that they tried to make Wallace look like a Republican. He was against LBJ, liberals and progressives. He was a Democrat. It can happen just as I am against the progressives in the Republican Party but it bothered me.

***I am not saying all Democrats are bad and Republicans are good. That is clearly not true. However let's make sure we are telling history correctly.

The important thing for those on the left to see is the role of God in the civil rights movement. They could have skated around this but they didn't. I was really pleased to see how much of a role they allowed God to play in this movie. It makes all the difference if you really want to tell the truth.

Now, it is equally important for those on the right to see this film. Many think we are living the civil rights era again... I do not believe we are, yet there are some of the same roots. The targeting of king and anyone who stands against the power in DC. The loss of rights although no where to the extent of what blacks went through.

To me this film tells me it will be our children, black and white - left and right, that will fight this battle and not us. Will they be prepared, educated and humble enough to stand for "all men are created equal,"

*note the opening scene with Oprah's character. How she handled herself was much more like a Tea Party person than an Occupy Wall Street or 'Black Lives Matter' protestor.

These people were heroes. We should be so lucky to be this brave, restrained and smart.

The movie also shows the want of many to run to violence and guns. The Malcolm X character is important. You hear many things that I have heard from the outer fringes of the people who think the Tea Party doesn't go far enough. You will see why the right lost at the Bundy Ranch.

Humility, a non violent posture at all times is critical and the only way to win.

*****Important note: the right has not been violent. OWS was. Unions (SEIU) were. However, look at the images here. The bad guys were the ones shouting, pointing and pointing guns. The good guys were quiet, humble, open, meek, God fearing, kind, defenseless.

***I don't think it was needed but the film did only hint to Malcolm X's change of heart as he fell away from the Nation of Islam. I think this is important to address somewhere as the NOI is growing in the black community once again.

It is not a coincidence that Sirhan Sirhan killed RFK over Israel, JFK was killed by a communist, Malcolm X was killed by Islam and MLK was killed by a hate filled racist.

BE NONE OF THOSE THINGS AND CHANGE THE WORLD.

If you want to understand history, see a compelling movie, great acting and directing, a message we can all learn from WITHOUT IT BEING A MESSAGE MOVIE, and you want to see what real struggle is like, how Americans can and do come together when they see real injustice and how NOBLE and God fearing people who seek to love change the world: SEE SELMA.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
