ISIS leaves chilling note in Swedish mailboxes

Police in Sweden are investigating chilling notes left in mailboxes across the country that bear all the hallmarks of the psychological warfare employed by ISIS in the Middle East. The communiques, signed "ISIS" and displaying the ominous black flag, threaten to decapitate "non-believers" unless they become Muslim or pay a religious tax:

In the name of Allah, the merciful, full of grace. You who are not believers will be decapitated in three days in your own house. We will bomb your rotten corpses afterwards.

You must choose between these three choices:

1. Convert to Islam.

2. Pay the jizya [religious tax] for protection.

3. Or else, you will be decapitated.

The police will not prevent or save you from you being murdered. (Death comes to all of you).

The notes appeared on December 10th.

Tensions have mounted in Sweden with the influx of refugees from Syria, with more than 200,000 arriving in 2015. Swedish nationals are begging their government to wake up and protect them.

Glenn read several letters written by Swedes to the prime minister on air during The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday.

There are no apartments. No jobs. We don't dare go shopping anymore without a gun, but we're supposed to think everything is great. Women and girls are raped by these non-European men who come here claiming they are unaccompanied children, even though we all know they're grown men. Sweden is now the rape capital of the world. I should say, there's one other country some place in Africa that actually has a higher rape rate, but it's a country in the middle of Africa. This is Sweden. Girls now have a one in four chance of being raped in Sweden. It has skyrocketed in just the last couple of years.

Instead of torch-like processions against racism, we need a prime minister who speaks out against the violence. Don't make this about racism.

In all honesty, I don't even feel the government ministers see the problems. There's no one in meetings who can tell them what real life actually looks like.

Rather than helping, the Swedish government rebuffs citizens by cautioning against racism and calling for more gun control. Sound familiar?

“When a government puts immigrants before citizens, Swedish citizens have no place to live, no jobs and they need to carry guns everywhere they go," Glenn said. "The Swedes see the welfare system failing them. They have to get used to the fact that the government has prioritized refugees and migrants above native Swedes.”

Last week, while filming on location in Sweden, Glenn and his crew got a first-hand taste of what the Swedes are experiencing. In one suburb, a group of Muslim men began gradually surrounding them --- one asking Glenn's head of security why he was wearing a bulletproof vest --- at which point Glenn and crew departed the scene, feeling a riot was imminent.

"I was more comfortable in Iraq than I was in some of the suburbs of Sweden. So was the whole team," Glenn said.

Watch a segment from the program below.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
