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.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
