Days of Rage: It's NOT Just Coming From the Left

We oftentimes in our country's history choose the wrong path. We always seem to get back on the right path eventually, but in the 1960s, before there was Kevlar, people were assassinated.

I told you yesterday that Donald Trump is now wearing a bullet-proof vest. He has Secret Service all over him. If this were 1968, would Donald Trump be alive today? I don't know.

Has our Secret Service stopped violence that we don't know of? Would Barack Obama be alive today? Would Ted Cruz be alive today? Would we be alive today?

That's the only thing stopping us from 1968 all over again --- the assassinations.

In 1968, a feminist went into Andy Warhol's art studio and gunned him down. A few months later, Robert F. Kennedy was gunned down. It was madness.

And there were people --- the Black Panthers, the Weather Underground, SDS -- the same group of people, really, they were planning for the convention, the Democratic Convention of 1968. And they were planning for a riot at the convention. The police were called, and Chicago streets were full of blood and violence.

Because I'm a student of history, I have been warning since, I think, around 2012. When was the first time I started saying 2016 would be 1968? I think around 2012.

I honestly thought it would come from the left. Who would have seen that the left and the right would actually both be responsible? The ones calling for the day of rage are twofold.

We have the Black Panthers, we have Occupy Wall Street and we also have the Muslim Brotherhood coordinating for their own summer violence and marches on the streets of America. That's all well documented, if anybody cares to look, but nobody in the media has looked.

On the other hand, we now have a super PAC of Donald Trump's speaking out. (I believe that Donald Trump is wrong when he says that Ted Cruz is managing his super PACs. You can't do that legally. I believe he's wrong when he says, "Well, they can go around those laws and they know exactly what's going on, and Ted Cruz can stop those super PACs when and if he wants to." That would be illegal.) But now Donald Trump's super PAC, headed by one of his close advisers --- a guy who was in the Nixon administration, a guy who studies and adores Saul Alinsky, a guy whose nickname is the Dirty Trickster, the guy who was there at Watergate, a guy who really has no principles whatsoever --- he's now running one of Donald Trump's super PACs. And he has started to promote the hashtag #daysofrage.

That's what Chicago was called in 1968. I can't believe that this is actually happening.

He's now been banned on MSNBC because of this. They won't give him any airtime, and we won't give him any airtime here. But I want you to hear what he is saying because we have a choice.

Now, people are saying that we're taking this out of context when I posted some of this stuff last night. They're saying we're taking it out of context. You decide for yourself. Here is Roger Stone on what he's planning this summer.

The fix is in. If Trump does not run the table on the rest of the primaries and the caucuses, we're looking at a very, very narrow path in which the kingmakers go all out to cheat, to steal, and to -- and to snatch this nomination from the candidate who is overwhelmingly selected by the voters, which is why I have urged Trump supporters: Come to Cleveland. March on Cleveland. Join us in the Forest City. We're going to have protests. Demonstrations. We will disclose the hotels and the room numbers of those delegates who are directly involved in this deal. If you're from Pennsylvania, we'll tell you who the culprits are. We urge you to visit their hotel and find them. You have a right to discuss this if you vote in the Pennsylvania primary, for example, and your votes are being disallowed.

In another cut, he talked about the big steal. He has dubbed this now "the big steal."

This is very Saul Alinsky, this is very Democrat, you know, you dub things. But it's also very Donald Trump, dubbing things --- little Marco, lying Ted --- to help you remember and to train you to think that way. They are now calling this the big steal, Roger Stone is. I don't know how you take that out of context. He is saying that he will give the hotel room numbers of the delegates and you go and you find them.

Now, he does say, "And talk to them." But everything else he's saying, I mean, do you think it's reasonable to give out not somebody's hotel, but their hotel room number and say, "Go get them and talk to them." If you are saying they're stealing something and these are the bad guys that are doing it to you, do you really think that they're going to talk to them?

Is this incitement? Or is this who we are? Is this who you are?

As I said to you a minute ago, this may be what we have been preparing for since 2008. No, I'm sorry. This is maybe, what I've been prepared for. This is what maybe I've been hearing. What I'm supposed to do, and I haven't understood it. And I've argued. This isn't a Martin Luther King movement. This isn't a Martin Luther King movement. I've said this over and over again. And you should hear my prayers. This isn't it. If you think you have it as bad as Martin Luther King did, you're fooling yourself.

But maybe that's not what his plan was. Maybe that's not what he was warning. Maybe he was just saying, "You're going to have to stand in the face of evil." Because I do believe Martin Luther King was right: When there is good versus evil and it is side by side, Americans will always side with good.

And this is not about a candidate. Make no mistake. This is not about a candidate. This isn't about Donald Trump. This is about good versus evil.

I'm wondering if we're supposed to go to Cleveland ourselves. And I don't know what yet --- ring those hotels, stand someplace, arm in arm, shoulder to shoulder, and be immovable. And let them punch us in the face. Let them be violent. Let them be whoever they have to be. And we show that Americans aren't that way. We're not part of that. As they go try to destroy things, shouldn't somebody be standing up and ringing the police? No matter if they're Trump delegates or Kasich delegates or Cruz delegates, but making sure that somebody is standing up in the way. Because, you know, yesterday's monologue was just do it. It was a reminder that nothing happens unless you do it.

This isn't somebody else's battle. The American Revolution was the battle of the farmers. The farmers came up. And many people said, "Who are you to go and pick up a gun against the strongest army in the world?" Well, I believe in this. I don't know. I'm saying this out loud. I'm just thinking out loud. I'm not saying we're going.

I have an advantage. I've never swung a fist before. I'm such a girl, I might pull your hair. But in any fist fight, I lose. I don't even know how to try. So it's easy for me to be nonviolent in a crowd because I'll be cowering and getting hit in the face and there's nothing I can do about it. That's why Martin Luther King trained people. And I don't know if any of us have the discipline to do it. I don't know if anybody truly has the discipline to not swing back.

But what is the point? The point is not to go and stop them and beat them at their own game, the point is to show the difference between good and evil. That's what Martin Luther King was doing. Martin Luther King was showing that we don't have to be this way, and these are the bad guys. We're not the bad guys.

There were those trying to make Martin Luther King look like the revolutionary, look like the bad guy. But when his people stood there --- men and women, preachers, pastors, rabbis --- all stood there and they just took it, they took the fire hose, they took the dogs, they took the beatings with the sticks, and America knew. These were not the bad guys.

And right now, America doesn't know who are the bad guys and the good guys. Nobody knows. Everybody says they're the good guy. Everybody says that. The only way you know who the good guys are in a society like this is to make a very bold statement.

Boy, this is going to be really unpopular. I'm not suggesting we're going to do this. I've been saying for how many months . . . that I think we're going to end up in Cleveland doing something like this. So I just had that feeling, but it didn't make sense until I heard Roger Stone say this yesterday.

Perhaps this is why we went to Birmingham last year. Remember, a lot of that didn't make sense. When I said, "We all have to march together." And remember I said, "We have to have some discipline on this?" And everybody was like, "Glenn, it's just a march down the street." And I'm like, "I know. But it will make sense at some point." Maybe it's this point. And as I said at the beginning, I hope so. Because if it's not, guys, how much worse does it have to get before we stand up?

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

(Left) Image source: video screenshot/ (right) Photo by Marcus Ingram/Getty Images

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
