Lovely: Greece elects commie as new PM

So, some pretty good times in Greece right now. The communist party just won elections there while the neo-Nazi party came in 3rd, despite campaigning from prison while awaiting court dates. As if that wasn’t bad enough, it appears the communists and the Nazis are joining together to fight austerity. What could possibly go wrong?

Thankfully, Glenn is here to explain:

Below is a rough transcript of this segment:

GLENN: We were also talking in the break -- I showed the guys a picture of the new prime minister. He's far left, communist, far left prime minister of Greece. I told you that the old hatreds would rise again. I told you before the Golden Dawn party, that the Nazi party would rise again and the communists would rise again and you would see the conflicts of the 1930s. That was poo-pooed.

Then I went on to say that the left and the right, the communists and the fascists will work together in common goals to destroy the west. That was poo-pooed.

What happened this weekend is the Nazi party gained more seats in parliament, and the communists swept. So now the moderates are out in Greece. So the first thing that the prime minister does this weekend in Greece, and this is really important. What is the first thing he does if you are the prime minister of Greece? He goes an gets some flowers and goes to memorial, and he puts flowers down in this park at this memorial, where the Germans executed 200 Greeks during World War II.

Why is that significant? Because Germans are the ones that gave Greece their money. So when Greece needed a bailout, they went to the -- the Bundesbank and said we need to borrow some money. The German bank gave them the money, underwrote their economy and now they are controlled by the Germans.

PAT: And the Germans wanted them to cut back on spending.

GLENN: 'Look, you guys are living it up. I mean, it's irresponsible. You can't pay us back if you were continuing to spend the way you are spending, so you can't spend. And we are the ones that -- we gave you the money. Now be responsible with it.' And that's called austerity cutbacks.

Well, the Greek people did not want to do it, because it's hard. You are not living the same life you have been living, and it is going to get really hard. This is coming to America, by the way. It is going to get really tough.

So the Germans are like 'look, we aren't going to continue to fund this. You have to cut back.' So the first thing the new prime minister does is put flowers down at the place where they shot the Germans, as a shot across the bow to Germany saying 'we know who you are. You screwed us before, you shot and killed our people, and I want you to understand I know who you are and you're not going to do that to us again.'

It's a very dangerous symbol. He was there, by the way with a whole bunch of red flags behind him. It is a very dangerous time, which brings me to something else Pat and I talked about this weekend.

Pat and I have had decided that we are going to go, take our families to Europe this summer, and here's why.

I'm sharing this with you because of the conversation that we had this weekend. We are not going because 'hey, let's go live it up and go to Europe.' Pat and I truly believe that we are in the 1930s. I don't know where, but we are in the 1930s, and maybe it's '39 or '35, I don't know, but history is repeating itself.

If I would have said to you in 1935, 'hey, let's go to Europe,' you would have said well 'it's getting kind of dangerous there. I don't know.' 'Hey, let's go to Germany, let's go to France, let's see some of these places, because I

don't know what the world is going to look like.' If you missed your opportunity in the 1930s, the next time that you would have wanted to take a vacation and go to Europe would have been probably about 1950. You would have gone in 1950, but everything would have been under construction and everything would have been new. Germany no longer looked like Germany.

Because of what is happening, I believe London, France, Germany Greece, I believe these things could be destroyed in what is coming and especially because, remember who you are fighting against. You are fighting against Islamic extremists. The places that they will target will be places like the Cathedral of Notre Dame.

You could go back to France in 15 years from now and it might be free. It might not be. It might be free, but the Cathedral of Notre Dame may be gone. Whether that's from war or from terrorists.

We are in a time right now that the world is going to change. And Pat and I were talking about our kids. We would like our kids to see these things because in 15 years from now, I don't want to go when I'm 65 or 70 years old. I want to go now. I want to be able to enjoy it and see it and walk around with my kids, and I want my kids to see it, in case it's lost.

We're telling you this to give you some clue as to what time I think we are in. And the whole thing has been a stair step, and you can always turn around and go back down and walk down the stairs the other way, but the world is not doing it. And they're escalating.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."
