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.

Texas Democratic gubernatorial nominee Robert Francis "Beto" O’Rourke's disgusting and obviously-staged political stunt during a press conference about the Ross Elementary School massacre is just another of the many ways that prove the man is "human trash," Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere agreed on the radio program Thursday.

"Beto is human trash. He is scum. He is the scum of the earth, the lowest form of humanity our society can produce," Stu said in response to a video clip of O'Rourke heckling Gov. Greg Abbott in the middle of an update on the tragic mass killing in Uvalde. "This was obviously staged from the beginning ... clearly planned. Even CBS News pointed it out it was blatantly a staged event. And this guy [O'Rourke], because he wants more power and more money, decided that this event was about him. He wanted to make the [deaths] of 19 children and teachers all about Beto O'Rourke because he is human scum. He is the worst form of life imaginable on this Earth."

Democrats like O'Rourke have been quick to use the tragic deaths of 19 children to advance their own pro-gun law political agendas, particularly "red flag" laws that would empower courts to take guns away from "potentially dangerous" people

"You want a solution? Stop selling AR-15s in the state of Texas. You want a solution? Have universal background checks. We don't have them. You want a solution? Red flag laws or extreme risk protection orders, which stop a shooting before it happens," O'Rourke shouted after being escorted out of the press conference.

Glenn wasn't buying O'Rourke's "righteous indignation," especially as his own resurfaced writings qualify as the "ultimate red flag for any red flag law." As a teen, O'Rourke wrote about hacking, overthrowing the government, and, most disturbingly, murdering children by running over them with his car.

Glenn read an excerpt from a fiction O'Rourke wrote when he was 15 years old:

[O]ne day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams.

As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.

"Dangerous, right? Nothing good's going to come of this. According to Reuters, those are the teenage writings of Beto O'Rourke," Glenn said. "The state of Texas should be very aware and not allow [O'Rourke] to buy a gun because of this. This guy, this guy, and his righteous indignation — give it a rest, bud. Give it a rest."

Texas AG Ken Paxton says gun laws are NOT the answer, urges schools to arm teachers

In the wake of the unspeakably grievous mass murder at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, many on the left are calling for increased gun control measures, but without specifying exactly what legislation could have prevented the horrifying event. Attorney General Ken Paxton says gun laws are not the answer. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail specific measures he believes could stop similar school atrocities in the future: arming teachers.

Paxton told Glenn that Texas has already put laws in place that allow schools to opt in to training and arming teachers as either a marshal or under the guardian program.

"We passed laws when I was in the Texas Senate, I think it was 2013, that would have helped greatly. There's no way that law enforcement can get to every location as fast as they would need to," Paxton said.

Glenn interjected, "I'll tell you, I went to a school where my son was playing football ... and there were signs all over. 'Beware. Teachers are armed. We take the Second Amendment and the protection of our students seriously.' It was so clear — not doing anything here. That's the way to do it."

"Yes," Paxton agreed. "I think that's the way it should be. I mean, these people [shooters], they know they're safe, at least until law enforcement gets there, to accomplish their goals. And we're going to keep seeing this happen until we decide as a state ... to protect these kids," he added.

"It's ridiculous for the Biden administration to suggest that this kid who decided to violate the murder laws would [think], 'Oh. Wait a minute, there's a gun law. I can't do this. I wouldn't violate gun laws.' It's law-abiding citizens that follow the law," Paxton continued. "Second, we have a fentanyl crisis that the Biden administration has presumably invited and we've had over 100, 000 people that overdosed and died from fentanyl. [...] Why isn't the Biden administration so concerned about the hundred and something thousand people that died from overdoses because they opened up the border and allowed fentanyl to come across?"

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters' latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

Glenn Beck addressed the incomprehensibly tragic mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on the radio program Wednesday, saying it's time to stop with the politics, from both sides, and focus on healing a nation that is tearing itself apart.

"It pains me to think about the political garbage that has happened in the last 12 hours," Glenn began. "I believe that we are on the verge of losing our nation, and the reason why we're about to lose our nation is the same reason some kid walked into an elementary school and shot and killed people. It's not the guns ... it's our society."

Glenn called the tragedies plaguing our nation' —kids shooting kids, committing suicide, dying from fentanyl, joining gangs, and suffering from depression and loneliness — are symptoms of a greater sickness.

"Where's the value of human life? The hatred that is being poured down our throats, the class division, the racism — make no mistake, it is intentional," he stated. "The best way to destroy a nation is to cut it apart. ... In our society, where are the ethics? What are ethics? It's your truth versus my truth. There is no absolute truth. And in a world where there is no truth, who gets to be God? Well, it depends on which group you're in I guess."

Glenn said America’s underlying problem is "a rotting in our soul" and until we "live in a nation that is willing to even recognize that there is something bigger than the self, and it has nothing to do with government, we'll never fix this problem."

"Let's not make this about Democrats and Republicans. Let's just make this about what the hell is going on because everything in our society is falling apart," he said. "And until you're willing to have that conversation, the rest of it is bullcrap."
