Anonymous Video Surfaces for National Day of Rage — Is It a Hoax?

Glenn was mocked for saying the summer of 2016 would be the 'days of rage.' Now, it seems everyone is saying it --- even the president of the United States. Perhaps most ominous, though, is a recently released video that claims the hacktivist group Anonymous wants a day of rage on Friday, July 15.

Allegedly, 37 cities across the U.S. are targeted for days of rage, including Cleveland and Philadelphia, where the Republican and Democratic National Conventions kick off, on July 18 and July 25 respectively.

"We are sitting on a powder keg, but pray that nothing happens in Cleveland," Glenn said on his radio program Thursday. "Cleveland is safe, but the world could change next week, and then the week after in Philadelphia."

While Anonymous is not a centralized organization --- anyone can take action or make claims under the umbrella of Anonymous --- the video, which mimics a similar rumor from 2014, could potentially inspire others to organize rage protests. The recent video (see below) includes this piece of commentary:

Citizens of the world: We are Anonymous. We must stress the importance of staying nonviolent. Your local 7/11 did not cause the death of these young men. We condemn every form of rioting. We are calling on a collective day of rage. A day of action centered around civil disobedience and the right to protest.

To police departments across the United States, we are not your enemy. However, it is in your hands. If you want us to stay that way or not. We will not be silenced, and we will not be intimidated.

To the same (indiscernible) in the Baton Rouge police departments, we've launched attacks on your virtual infrastructure. We are prepared to release every single piece of evidence that will compost your corruption and blatant disregard for human life. Once again, we are calling upon the citizens of the United States in conjunction with the Black Lives Matter movement as well as other civil rights activists to participate in day of action against the injustices of corrupt officers.

On Friday, July 15, we will all flood the streets at strategic locations in order to maximize our voice. The locations and times will be located in the descriptions below. Tell your family. Tell your friends. We will change the world together. Our freedom depends on it. We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
