Why was Putin's political opponent assassinated? Glenn lays out his theory

On February 27th, one year after Russian troops began military operations in Crimea, a gunman murdered anti-Putin activist Boris Nemtsov in Russia's first political murder in over a decade. He was shot four times at the exact moment a street cleaning truck blocked the only camera. The assailant walked into a getaway car and escapes. On TheBlaze Tuesday night, Glenn looked at the evidence and the players to find out what exactly happened.

To begin, Glenn laid of the unbelievable connections between the date of the murder and the beginning of military operations in Crimea. Nemtsov was a leading voice in opposition to Putin's war in the Ukraine.

"The murder took place on February 27th," Glenn explained. "A significant date, because it was on February 27th of last year that troops began military operations in Crimea. They were highly trained, well-armed, and wore uniforms that bore no identifying insignia. They were dubbed Putin's 'little green men'. Less than a month later, Crimea fell. Dugin called it "Novorossia" or New Russia. Putin claimed Ukraine is just like the Russian version of Jerusalem."

"Fast forward to February 27, 2015. Putin just happened to create a new holiday, Special Forces Day, to commemorate the operation by Russian special-forces to take over Crimea."

"Later that very same day, the garbage truck hid the killers of one of Putin's foes. It was a surgical takedown. One that had professional written all over it," Glenn said. "So, on Putin's new Special Forces Day there just so happens to be a special forces style hit on a guy who was critical of Putin? Coincidence? Or a message to anyone who dares speak out against him?"

According to Glenn, there were two primary motives behind the assassination: retribution and ultra-nationalism.

Nemtsov served as Deputy Prime Minister under Boris Yeltsin, and Russia turned towards democracy and capitalism during their regime. When Yeltsin's administration fell apart and Putin rose to power, Nemtsov was forced into early retirement. But he never stopped speaking out against Putin and his policies. However, it cost him dearly. He joined a large bank in Russia, but the bank was accused of money laundering when Nemtsov supported a non-Putin candidate. He and his party were also accused of stealing billions from the Russian government.

"Putin is exacting retribution and making an example of someone to scare the rest," Glenn said.

But Nemtsov also pissed off the Russian ultra-nationalists.

"Nemtsov's biggest sin in their eyes was his actions and views on Ukraine," Glenn said. "In 2004 he was an active supporter of the Ukrainian Orange Revolution and supported the anti-Putin candidate."

"In 2013, Nemtsov declared his support that Ukraine should join the European Union. When Putin annexed Crimea Nemtsov publicly condemned the act. He said that Russia had violated ukrainian sovereignty and that what Putin had done was illegal. When the conflict expanded to eastern Ukraine, Nemtsov was outraged," Glenn continued.

Ultra-nationalists in Russis see the war in the Ukraine as a holy war, and yet one of it's most vocal opponents was killed on a day celebrating the beginning of Russia's invasion. And the assassination went down with military precision right in front of the Kremlin walls. Glenn said that doesn't happen without approval from someone high up in the government.

"Russia's nationalism is heating up, and the radicals Putin has stoked are pushing him to do more. This type of nationalism is a monster. Has that monster become something that Putin can't control anymore? Are the "little green men" in Ukraine now also fighting in the streets of Moscow?" Glenn said.

"Whether Putin personally gave the order or not, he's ultimately responsible for this and the world should hold him accountable."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?
