David Horowitz: How Progressives Destroy Cities, Families and the Poor

David Horowitz, author of the new book Progressive Racism, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Thursday to discuss the book and his firsthand knowledge of the civil rights movement and communism. His parents were literal communists, and he was part of the 1960s underground counter culture. In the early 1970s, he became aware of the evils of communism, socialism and progressivism and has been ringing the alarm bell ever since.

"[David] just woke up about 1973 and said, 'Holy cow, this is all a lie.' So he's been studying what socialism and communism do to American cities. He has facts at his fingertips that will blow your mind," Glenn said.

Glenn first asked about the idea of getting great conservative minds together to plan long-term for restoring the Republic.

"I want to talk to you about the Tides Foundation and how they built that. I really, truly believe the right must do that. We have to start getting together people of principles and chart a 100-year plan."

While on board with the idea, Horowitz had an interesting take on the notion.

"Unfortunately, getting conservatives together is like herding cats," Horowitz replied. "Conservatives are individualists. They don't believe they're changing the world. They're just trying to preserve . . . where we steward some of the good things. So it's very difficult."

Changing gears, the two delved into progressive policies and how destructive they are.

"We've been doing a series on the War On Poverty this week," Glenn said. "I just really wanted to hear some of the things that you've told me in the past and the things that you have in Progressive Racism that show the American people how devastating the loving progressive socialists really are to our cities and our people."

Horowitz, who has studied the effects of socialism and progressivism for decades, had plenty to say.

Well, the first thing is that progressives don't care at all about black people or poor people or minorities. But they use them as symbols to bash America. It's part of their agenda to overthrow our system and establish their socialist police state.

What people need to focus on in the first place is that every inner city in America, every killing field --- Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, Washington, DC --- every one of them is 100 percent controlled by the Democratic Party and have been for 50 to 100 years. Everything that's wrong with the inner cities in America, everything that oppresses poor, white, black and Hispanic people mainly --- beginning with the schools that fail these kids, they fail to teach them year in and year out because they're run for the adults and the teacher unions, which are slush funds for the Democratic Party --- every one of those things is 100 percent controlled by the Democratic Party.

Horowitz noted Detroit as a specific example, which was the richest per capita city in America in 1961. That's the year they elected a Democrat mayor.

Over the years, the Democrats, the progressives do what they do --- their anti-business policies, anti-white policies. They had racists running it. They had a mayor who was a mayor of the Communist Party, Cohen Young, for 20 years. Detroit finally went bankrupt --- $14 billion in debt or something like that. Two-thirds of the population has fled. It looks like a bombed-out city, just utterly destroyed, because it was 100 percent control by the Democratic Party from the '60s on.

It's not old-style Democrats or classic liberals that are the problem. It's progressives.

"The problem and the real disease, in both parties, is the progressive liberal --- the progressive Democrat, the progressive Republican. Because those are the ones that really come in and they believe that massive government is the answer, way beyond what we used to think," Glenn said. "Massive, total control, authoritarian government is the goal of the progressives."

Horowitz agreed.

"How are they going to redeem the world? Through government, and they use the state. Of course, they have to control every aspect of your life since they're remaking everything. And they see us, those who resist their program --- they look on themselves as the army of the saints --- and they look on the rest of us as the party of Satan," Horowitz said. "They're totalitarians, is what they are."

David Horowitz's new book, Progressive Racism, is available in bookstores everywhere. The book dissects the tragic transformation of the civil rights movement from a cause opposing racism into a movement endorsing race preferences and privileges for select groups based on their skin color.

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
