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.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
