The Road to World War 3: Netanyahu's appeal to the U.S. parallels a near-genocide of the Jewish people

History always repeats itself, and Glenn believes that the world now stands on the precipice of World War 3. But the patterns playing out today don't just tie back to the 1930s and 40s, but in fact go much, much deeper. For anyone with an understanding of Biblical history, the story of Esther and Mordecai is repeating itself on the world stage as Netanyahu appeals to the United States to stop negotiating with Iran.

In the Bible, a Jewish woman named Esther marries the gentle king of Persia. The king's Prime Minister, Haman, develops a plan to kill all of the Jews in Persia, including Esther's cousin Mordecai. Thankfully, Mordecai uncovers the plot and convinces Esther to appeal to the king on behalf of her people to stop the genocidal plans. She succeeds and the Jews are allowed to defend themselves from the Persians who try to kill them. This story is chronicled in the Book of Esther and celebrated during Purim.

"Mordecai went and spoke to Esther, and said to Esther, 'The king is about to kill all of the Jews. You have a position. You can talk him out of this. You can stop this'," Glenn said. "Haman is a bad guy, and he has the ear of the king. And because the king is listening to Haman, he is going to kill all the Jews."

Glenn sees the same story playing out today. Persia/Haman is now modern-day Iran, looking to wipe out the Jews. The king is President Obama and/or Congress, faced with a choice between Esther and Haman. Benjamin Netanyahu is Mordecai warning of the coming destruction of the Jews. And the American people are Esther, the only one listening to the warnings of Mordecai, and the one with the power to stop the genocide to come.

"If history repeats itself, this week, who is Mordecai? I believe Mordecai is Benjamin Netanyahu. I believe Haman is Iran. Persia. I don't know if the king is Barack Obama or the Congress. But I believe the American people are Esther. And it is why President Obama is trying so desperately to get people to not listen to this speech. He has asked the Democrats to walk out, 34 Democrats have walked out of this speech," Glenn said.

"Will the United States accept the fact that we were born for a time such as this?" he asked.

Glenn also showed how the patterns of World War 2 are playing out again. He explained what he means when he said we are approaching World War 3 and the dangers of a Russia/Iran alliance. Scroll past the video for a rush transcript of the full segment.

When I say World War III. What was World War II really all about? It was the national socialists that wanted to control the world, but they wanted to start with nation states. And then the communists that wanted the workers of the world to unite. Both were communist, if you will, both were socialist. Okay? But one was, let's dominate the entire world under the workers. The other was, no, Germany, a nation state will take over the world and we'll do it state I by state. So national socialists over global communists. What happened? Those two go to war with each other. That was the first thing.

Germany hated the communists examine and the communists hated the national socialists. And so that was the real strife at the beginning. At first they came for the communists. That's how that poem started. At first they came for the communists. And I didn't say anything because I wasn't a communist. It ends with, then they came for the Jews. Then there was nobody left to stand up. So they first started going against each other. We picked sides. We said the Nazis were bad.

First, we refused to even say the Nazis were bad. Many people in our own country and in western Europe said the Nazis are okay. Many of the hierarchy up in England said the Nazis were okay because they really truly believed that the Nazis would leave the nobility with their wealth. Where they knew the communists would come and take it all. That wasn't true, as we later found out.

So we had to decide. And we chose the communists are better than the Nazis. In the end, they weren't. But they were the lesser of two evils. And so we decided to side with the communists.

So World War II goes on, and just before they lose, Germany goes down, and they plant the seeds of Naziism. Now, this is where I think it becomes Satanic. Not that they weren't Satanic to begin with. This is where I see the long-term play of Satan. The Nazis go down to the Middle East and they start playing footsy with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Mufti of Persia, and they plant all this anti-Semitism. They plant the Protocols of Zion. They plant all of these things and stir everybody up. And it is so effective, that Persia changes its name to Iran. In Persian, Iran means Aryan. They go and give it as a gift to Hitler and say, this is our gift to you. We are the Aryan Nation.

So the reason why I say this is World War III because Russia is rearing her ugly head. Tonight at TV at 5:00, it's critical to watch this. There's two sides to this coin. First, there is the Russian fascism that is growing. There was murder of one really, really important guy in Russia on Saturday. And an arrest of his partner. And nobody in the west is talking about this.

This is -- as crazy as the -- as the caliphate theory was, and I'm telling you, if you want to understand what's coming, you need to watch this. Everybody now is concentrating on the caliphate, we're looking at the other shoe drop. It is, if you will, the communists much World War II. They have gone fascist now, but they are planting themselves in Italy and in France and in Germany. And what happened this weekend is a very important step of growth for them, and a very frightening one.

And the world is going to have to choose again. And I would suggest that we choose neither. The world is going to have choose. They're going to say, do we side with the fascists? And Europe will choose the fascists. Or do we choose ISIS? And much of the world will choose ISIS. Those will be your Axis and Allied powers. The question is, where does the United States fall?

The president has already played footsy with Putin. Giving me more space and when I have the election, I'll have more room to maneuver. He's already played footsy with him. But now we've pissed them off. Are we choosing the fascist side?

The president has also played footsy -- they're playing now footsy with Iran. We're going behind the back of Congress, behind the back of Israel, behind the back of all of our allies, and we are negotiating a treaty with Iran. A country that is part and parcel with this idea that they can vaporize Israel in order to bring back the promised one, in order to bring about Armageddon. Those are not my words. Those are their words.

This is where World War II left off. World War II, Hitler comes down, and he plants all of this sick ideology. But what he doesn't know, or maybe he does, is that their ideology fits now part and parcel with their theological belief that they will play a role in the battle of Armageddon.

Our battle of Armageddon is Gog and Magog. If you know anything about ancient history, that is Persia and Russia. Russia and Persia are together. The United States is now siding with Persia. Russia and Persia are together.  The United States is now siding with Persia.  The reason I keep calling it Persia is to give you the remembrance of Hitler changed it to Iran.  But also, this is the week that Mordecai in biblical history, Mordecai went and spoke to Esther, and said to Esther, the king is about to kill all of the Jews.  You have a position.  You can talk him out of this.  You can stop this.

Haman is a bad guy, and he has the ear of the king.  And because the king is listening to Haman, he is going to kill all the Jews.

Now, who -- if history repeats itself, this week, who is Mordecai?  I believe Mordecai is Benjamin Netanyahu.  I believe Haman is Iran.  Persia.

I don't know if the king is Barack Obama or the Congress.  But I believe the American people are Esther.  And it is why President Obama is trying so desperately to get people to not listen to this speech.  He has asked the Democrats to walk out, 34 Democrats have walked out of this speech.  It happens today at 11:00 p.m. central, 12 o'clock eastern.  We are going to play it in its entirety at 8:00 p.m. tonight for you to be able to watch it with some analysis afterwards.  But it is critical that you watch it.  Because the forces arrayed against it are astronomical.

Have you ever seen a speech that hasn't been given get this much attention?  I mean, the last speech I saw get this much attention before it was given, was 8/28.  Do you remember the buildup of 8/28?  For months they talked about what a hate speech that would be.  How dangerous it would be.  And then once it was given, if America would have listened to it, it could have actually changed the course.  And I do believe it did change the course with many people.  It had its desired outcome, I believe, for the Lord.

You need to make an appointment to be able to see this speech tonight because the question is:  Will you, like Esther, accept the fact -- will the United States accept the fact that we were born for a time such as this?

Critical race theory: Struggle sessions

China has a rich legacy of torture. During the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese Communist Party used a variety of torture techniques. These became more and more advanced over time. This included public humiliation and public executions.

One specific kind of public humiliation is what's called "The Struggle Session." It was a punishment reserved for people who committed wrong-think. The point was to publicly degrade the person until they swore allegiance to the Communist Party. Their focus is on the elimination of the power base and/or class position of enemy classes or groups. It was also a warning to everyone watching: If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

It was a way to punish anyone who so much as disagreed with Communist Party dogma.

These struggle sessions often took place in busy areas.

They also took place at universities, like the struggle session for the professor You Xiaoli, as recounted by Anne Thurston, in Enemies of the People:

You Xiaoli was standing, precariously balanced, on a stool. Her body was bent over from the waist into a right angle, and her arms, elbows stiff and straight, were behind her back, one hand grasping the other at the wrist. It was the position known as "doing the airplane." Around her neck was a heavy chain, and attached to the chain was a blackboard, a real blackboard, one that had been removed from a classroom at the university where You Xiaoli, for more than ten years, had served as a full professor. On both sides of the blackboard were chalked her name and the myriad crimes she was alleged to have committed...

The scene was taking place at the university, too, in a sports field at one of China's most prestigious institutions of higher learning. In the audience were You Xiaoli's students and colleagues and former friends. Workers from local factories and peasants from nearby communes had been bussed in for the spectacle. From the audience came repeated, rhythmic chants ... "down with You Xiaoli! Down with You Xiaoli!"

"I had many feelings at that struggle session," recalls You Xiaoli. "I thought there were some bad people in the audience. But I also thought there were many ignorant people, people who did not understand what was happening, so I pitied that kind of person. They brought workers and peasants into the meetings, and they could not understand what was happening. But I was also angry."

Struggle sessions have been revived, and exported to America. They come in many forms.

Forced apologies.

Beatings in public—like the mob attack on Rand Paul.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was sucker-punched.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was stabbed for being white.

Anti-racism seminars, like the one in Seattle.

Or the one involving Sandia Labs executives seminar.

The long-awaited New York Attorney General's report on the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is out — and it is bad for Cuomo. The Democratic AG concluded that the Governor did sexually harass multiple women during his time in office.

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck questioned is the AG's report would be enough for Democrats to condemn him and call for his resignation? This is what the #MeToo movement was started for, Glenn noted, if Gov. Cuomo doesn't resign quickly, that says a whole lot about today's Democratic Party.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.
