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.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
