Democracy Spring: Communism Coming to a Neighborhood Near You

The left has glorified the "Arab Spring" of 2010 as an uprising by the people and for the people --- but what is a "spring" and is it really a good thing?

“You have to understand, when anybody puts ‘spring’ in there, they know what that means. You may not know what that means, but they know what that means,” Glenn said Thursday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Who are “they” and just what is a spring? The short answer is “they” are communists. The longer answer involves George Soros and the groups he funds:

• Black Lives Matter

• NAACP

• Occupy Wall Street

• Muslim Brotherhood

The first “spring” took place in 1848 and was spearheaded by Karl Marx. The “Spring of Nations” targeted the governments of Europe and was meant to topple all repressive regimes. Marx moved to France when he was kicked out of Germany and, thankfully, his “spring” failed and failed again. The “Arab Spring” was the first apparent success story for this type of movement, but it was by no means the people who made it happen.

“The first time it really worked was the Arab Spring," Glenn said. "And it was the same kind of people. Remember, it wasn't the Muslims that did it. It was the Muslim Brotherhood, assisted by American communists and Occupy Wall Street and the Bill Ayers and all of those guys, Code Pink, they were the ones assisting that."

While "Democracy Spring" sounds like a noble movement, a "spring" is all about toppling the status quo and bringing down the current system of government. Why would anyone want to do this? For George Soros, it's just for fun --- and a little profit.

Glenn played audio of George Soros talking about why he chose to take part in these disruptions.

“The first part was this subversive activity, disrupting the passive regimes. That was a lot of fun,” Soros said. “And that's actually what got me hooked on this whole enterprise. Seeing what works in one country, trying it in the other country. So it was like a kind of --- it developed a matrix, in fact, that we had national foundations, and then we had certain specialized activities.”

This is all important to know because this summer, Donald Trump surrogate Roger Stone has called for the #DaysOfRage --- a term that comes straight out of the summer of 1968.

“Summer of Rage is what Donald Trump is calling for. And make no mistake, he is planting the seeds,” Glenn said. “And I have to tell you, it's either the biggest coincidence, or he is part of this idea of the leftists, to bring us down to our knees.”

Knowing the goal is chaos and toppling the government, it’s no surprise the Muslim Brotherhood is targeting Washington, D.C. and the city where the Democratic National Convention is being held – Philadelphia.

“[Trump] is friends with George Soros, but I don't think that he's part of the bringing down of America," Glenn said. "But in the end, it will be part of that because chaos leads to that, top-down, bottom-up, inside-out."

As this election continues to heat up, as discontent continues to rise and as you begin to hear more about the “Democracy Spring” --- remember what it’s really about and don’t give in.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
