You might be classified as an extremist and not even know it!

Glenn's a big fan of the website Zerohedge, a finance website that goes into the deep (and scary) realities of the world's economic and political news. While looking at the site this morning, he came across a very disturbing article: Obama Declares War On "Extremism" – Are You An "Extremist"? The article details and cites 72 different things that you can get you slapped with an "extremist" label by someone involved in government - and some of it will absolutely shock you. Glenn went through the list on radio this morning.

"It is somebody in the government saying 'this is a problem'.  Anybody in the government, in a government document saying 'we've got to watch for these people'," Glenn explained.

Below is just a sample of the list Glenn read, the rest of which can be found HERE.

1. Those that talk about “individual liberties”

2. Those that advocate for states’ rights

3. Those that want “to make the world a better place”

4. “The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule”

5. Those that are interested in “defeating the Communists”

6. Those that believe “that the interests of one’s own nation are separate from the interests of other nations or the common interest of all nations”

7. Anyone that holds a “political ideology that considers the state to be unnecessary, harmful,or undesirable”

8. Anyone that possesses an “intolerance toward other religions”

9. Those that “take action to fight against the exploitation of the environment and/or animals”

10. “Anti-Gay”

"Round us all up," Pat joked as Glenn went through the list.

"This is what Hitler did. You just put everybody into a category. Everybody is in a category. Then you just pick the levers, because you are run by sociologists. This is Dugan. How do I get people to comply. Well, if I pull the trigger on this one, this one and this one, that whole section there will comply. That's what it is. We have talked about this from the beginning. This is what Fascistic regimes do. They make everybody a criminal. You are a criminal," Glenn said.

"I was watching an old mission impossible the other day. It was from the old Cold War, the old TV show. From the old Cold War, and the guy was standing there. He bribed somebody. Said I almost forgot, in this country, there's one thing that always makes people look the other way. And I never understood that. Why --so many people take bribes because you take bribes because everybody is guilty of something. You don't actually believe in anything. You don't believe that person really did anything wrong. You don't really care. When we used to have laws that you would really care about because they were reasonable, you did care, you would call the police but now, when everybody is wrong and you don't really care, because nobody stand for anything anyway, if I could get rich off of you and let you go, why not? That's what happens. And that's where we are headed."

"Everybody is going to be doing something wrong. You have done something wrong. That's why we say you cannot collect information on us, you cannot, as the United States government collect the information on our phone calls and everything else, because I can guarantee you; if I have access to everything in your life, I can guarantee you, I can make you into somebody horrible."

"Look at what they have done to you. You like people, you love people, you are charitable. You want to help. You are not against the president because he's black. You are just as against the Republicans, maybe more so than the Democrats. But look what they did. They cherry picked, they took just the information they wanted that made you look a certain way."

"Why do you think they could do that on a group, but they wouldn't do that on an individual?"

"I was watching 'Selma', and LBJ okayed the blackmail with the FBI. The FBI said you know, we can take care of him, meaning we can kill him, you know. Make him go away. And LBJ said no, no. Well, there are other pressures we can use to make him go away. We can break his family up, we can do a lot of things. And they sent an audio tape of all these people saying horrible things then an audio tape of him apparently having an affair. And in it, he said that's not me. His wife looks at him and says I know. I know what you sound like. I know that's not you."

"I looked at my wife and I said afterwards, we were leaving, I said with the technology they have now and the ability to have the audio of everything, you could do this to people. You could smear them. You won't believe your eyes. You will say that's not me in that picture. That's not me in that audiotape. Yes, it is. Okay, Mr. Conspiracy theorist, everybody is against you. They can make you look like anything, should they choose to. Thank God, so far, nobody's choosing to do that, but we live in a different world."

"We live in a different world. That's why it is imperative that you have small government because you don't want a religious extremist. You don't want an atheist extremist, a Muslim extreme I was a left extremist, right extremist. You want the Constitution to remain supreme, because that is the closest thing we have to guaranteeing that all men are created equal and have an equal shot at everything, because nobody's ever going to be able to distribute it fairly, ever. Give me an equal shot. That's what Martin Luther King wanted."

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
