'Ready, Set, Go!': Why Glenn thinks it is time to change the world

Today on radio, Glenn dedicated a lot of time updating the radio audience on the information he shared in TheBlaze TV special "The Root: Red Storm". But he took some time out of the teaching portion of the show to address the important issue of why. Why is Glenn spending so much time on this story? Why is he ringing the bell? After all, he's said time and again that he wants to stop being the "warning guy" and really focus on being the "inspiration guy". But today he discussed why the time is running short for people to wake up and prepare - and what comes next.

"You know, I don't want to be this guy, and as the guys will tell you, we're working hard here because I don't want to be this guy. I don't want to be the warning guy anymore. I'm tired of it. But I -- I am the warning guy. So I have to tell you. And I know I'm gonna get hammered for this just like we did with everything else," Glenn said.

"I want you to listen carefully to me. I have been telling you for a long time, fascism will start to rise, the old hatred will start to rise. And you have seen that."

"I also said fascism would start with the Jews, but then because of the immigration laws over in Europe, and because of the way the Muslims are surrounding the cities and choking them, these fascists, if you don't start acting reasonably now, these fascists will take an event and they will use it and they will use it to expand. What is happening? It's all this is happening. Now, this is what I want to say to you. I told you last year, I kept hearing, and so it begins."

"Let me take this down to a more base level. I believe the Charlie Hebdo incident has -- is more of this. When I say and so it begins, what I meant was, oh, my gosh, here it comes. Here it comes. Here it comes. It's starting. Look it, this piece is going to grow and that piece is going to grow. What happened in France, if you are standing at a starting line and you're going to be in a race, you will always hear, ready, set, bang. I believe that we are -- last year was the ready. I believe the Charlie Hebdo was the set. And I think the go is coming. And it's coming soon."

"If you believe that you can stand around and just not be plugged in to what the world is doing. And pay attention to what's going on. And be disconnected from your faith and your principles, when that starting gun fires and it's going to fire soon, it's going to be too late. I -- I warn you and I beg you with everything in me to hear me, please hear me. The world is on the precipice of fascism, communism, anarchy, and theological nightmares. Nightmares. And it's spreading everywhere."

"What we brought on the last two nights and tonight is the last episode TheBlazeTV, is the Red Storm Rising. And I know people will want to dismiss it and they will want to say it's no big deal."

Glenn ran through the threat the Dugin presents to the West, but concluded the segment on a hopeful note.

"Don't run to a gun.  Run to love.  Run to the Lord.  Don't run to a gun.  Run to a charity.  Run to each other.  Don't -- don't.  Stand for what you believe.  But do it in love and peace and harmony," he said.

" I have said this from the beginning.  And it's about go time, gang.  And I can't believe I'm saying this.  But it's almost go time.  I don't know when this happens.  All of these -- all of this hatred, all of the fires in the streets and the killing of the cops here in America and the gunning down of people here in America and in France and all over the world, in Asia, all of this has happened without a depression.  We still can eat.  We still -- we still have the semblance of our life.  We haven't hit -- we don't even understand this.  We don't understand what the Great Depression was like.  People didn't have food.  They didn't have shoes.  They didn't have money.  They had nothing.  We're not used to that.  We've never seen that.  When we and the rest of the world start to go into a real economic collapse, God help us all.  And I really -- I've said this from the beginning.  This audience is going to be the audience that changes the world.  I'm begging you.  I'm begging you.  I don't know how to do it.  But somebody within the sound of my voices does.  I'm begging you, change the world.  Change your life.  I'm begging you.  Ready, set."

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
