What is a caliphate? Here’s what Glenn said in 2011

Way back in 2011, Glenn began to warn America about the end goal of Islamic groups like the Muslim Brotherhood: the Caliphate. No one wanted to believe that extremists would be working to conquer the Middle East under Islamic rule. The libs in the media called Glenn “crazy” and a “conspiracy theorist”, but flash forward just a few years and no one can deny that the endgame of ISIS is an Islamic State sweeping the Middle East (and beyond)! Here’s what Glenn predicted when the Muslim Brotherhood was first coming to power and the so-called experts mocking him. WARNING: If it happened in 2011, it will more than likely happen again.

Rough Transcript Below:

GLENN: The reason why we are starting here today on the caliphate is not to hold ourself up, but to ask you this one question: Who is an honest broker of information and why do you watch the news? If you watch the news to figure out what happened today, then you are taking a passive role in what is happening in the world. What is happenin today has already happened. You can't affect it. However, if you watch the news, to try to figure out what is coming our way, so you can be prepared, then you should listen to the people who are giving you the information in advance, not those who are mocking and ridiculing those who are proposing different theories.

Did you notice something missing from the MSNBC clips? You didn't hear any of the hosts mocking any of their guests or correspondents for discussing this idea of a caliphate, which is quite a change of tone for them and the rest of the media, especially considering that when this came out, and any mention of the caliphate in 2011, this is what MSNBC and others in the business were saying about that crazy conspiracy theory?

VOICE: Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity across the street at the Fox news channel, seem to be having a hard time this week.

GLENN: Caliphate. Caliphate.

GLENN: Their plans for North America, we showed you in their own words, that their goals include the transformation of America into an Islamic State. The destruction of the Western World.

VOICE: We call this segment seriously for a reason.

VOICE: This is, I do not use the term lightly, loony toons.

VOICE: Who's behind the sudden overthrow of the Egyptian government? Now, a lot of people point to a generation of young tech savy Egyptians who want a better future for themselves and their children. Simple answer. And sure Occam's razor says the simplest answer is usually correct, but fortunately, Glenn Beck isn't allowed near razors.

GLENN: I'm saying a global caliphate is coming.

VOICE: Yesterday, when we were give you the latest news from Cairo and the White House, Beck was preaching the coming of the caliphate. That's right. Why is Beck selling this fear? Because he doesn't want to deal with the problem at hand.

VOICE: I also think the other thing that's so worrisome, is it its very hard to understand how you undo the disinformation, because you and I can talk about how it's patently ludicrous the caliphate is around the corner, but the people that are watching Fox don't trust you and me, and so it doesn't carry much water and they probably don't trust the "New York Times" or a million other sources that could sort of monsteriously debunk it. How you get outside that relationship, that is the really the hardest nut to crack.

VOICE: Can you imagine how stupid our debates are going to be about foreign policy in this country for the next few months after Fox spent the entire week of the Egypt revolution broadcasting these conspiracy theories?

GLENN: Now, you can't blame MSNBC. They are only being good little soldiers for the president.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
