Words matter, and so do their meanings. Subtle changes in meanings can translate into big problems unless you're aware of them.
Cuckservative, a new favorite of the alt-right, is a blend between the words cuckold and conservative. One definition, according to Wikipedia, is a conservative who has sold out, bought into the key premises of the left and sympathizes with liberal values. When used, it's meant to insult and demean.
"This is a word specifically designed by the alt-right. So when you see that word, warning. That should be a warning sign. But most people are just like, Yeah, I like that word, or what is that word? They either dismiss it or they adopt it. Do not adopt it," Glenn said.
Read below or watch the clip for answers to these questions:
• Who is funding the alt-right in Europe?
• Can you be an American conservative and believe in socialism?
• Why is the rise of the alt-right as critical as that of the caliphate?
• What is Neo-Eurasianism and how can you learn more about it?
• What is the alt-right's new definition of a globalist?
Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
GLENN: Okay. I want to talk to you about something. I want to talk to you about Vladimir Putin. Vladimir Putin has now upped the game and is now funneling money, training, and terror to the alt-right in Europe.
We told you in a story two years ago that this was already happening through -- through Aleksandr Dugin into our churches here in America.
This -- this is not political. This has nothing to do -- I will be talking about this in greater detail after the election. I haven't brought this up during the election in great detail. I've told you that I'm going to be doing some chalkboard things. But I haven't done it because I know that it will fall on deaf ears. And whatever I say will be turned into, "See, he's just trying to help."
No. This is a big principle. I want to talk to you about this because a story broke yesterday that you need to know.
Don't allow anyone to -- to minimize this warning by making it about politics, by making it about Trump or Clinton. The people I am going to tell you about were here long before Donald Trump even thought, "Maybe I'll run." They were here -- we warned you about this when I was at Fox. This has nothing to do -- and, in fact, this would be happening if Ted Cruz were the nominee. This would be happening if Marco Rubio or anyone else were the nominee.
This has nothing to do with Trump or his supporters. I would be telling you and issuing this exact same warning if Ted Cruz were the nominee, and I would be saying to his supporters, "Warning. Watch yourself. There is something dangerous inside, right now."
This is not, for the last time, about politics. This is about our national survival.
If you remember, when I was on Fox, I did a chalkboard. And I talked about uber right. And, remember, I taught about the right and the left are different in Europe than they are here.
We call them the alt-right here, but they are not. They are fascists. They are communist or socialist. National socialism.
You cannot be an American right, if you believe in socialism.
The American right believes in small government. But we have allowed the media to define the American right as a European right.
If we aren't careful and the media isn't careful -- I spent, Ellen, 15 minutes, ten minutes on Dugin and this, with the New York Times on Monday. And said, "You must understand. These are not the Trump supporters. These are not the Tea Partiers. This is a subsection that's very nasty. And if you make these into the Trump supporters, you will shut down the hearing of everyone on the right, and no one will listen to you." Because that's not who these people are.
It is now officially happening in Europe. And it's only a matter of time before this happens here. I believe it already is. Here's what happened in Hungary.
In Hungary, they have the neo-Nazis. And when I was on Fox, I told you, "Watch for the hatreds of the 1930s. They will rise again." This was before the Golden Dawn Party in Greece. This was before any of this.
The neo-Nazis are rising again, and they are gaining great power because of what the EU is doing. A, they're forcing everybody to be the same. B, they're forcing everybody to take these refugees without any questions.
It is causing the alt-right to -- to have a fan base because they're the only ones saying, "We have to stop this." And because they are well thought out, because they are well financed, and because of Putin's influence as an invisible hand, they are gaining strength and popularity.
Remember, when I talked about them, they had no seats. Now in many countries, the alt-right, not the conservative, but the alt-right, the neo-Nazi, the nationalist and fascists are now, in many countries, 18 to 25 percent in national polls.
They are gaining seats.
There is a -- what a surprise, cop-killing spree in Hungary. The neo-Nazis are fueling a lot of this. And the cop-killing spree, as they went in and they caught one of these cop killers, they found out, "Holy cow, look at, this is a neo-Nazi. This is an old neo-Nazi. He's 70 years old. He's been coordinating this?"
But they also found guns and training from Vladimir Putin's Russia. They now have -- their version of the FBI has on tape Russian operatives going over in Europe, specifically in this case Hungary, coming in and training terrorists, alt-right terrorists.
And they are saying, you -- you are right. You've got to do this because of globalism. Because of the EU. Because of the banking -- they are feeding people exactly what people want to hear and are turning them on -- on things that we should be upset about.
Globalism is real. When Hillary Clinton, if she is elected and there is a downturn and a banking -- a real banking crisis, I will tell you now, her solution will be for nationalization of banks or a global bank that takes it over. A global bank. This is the path we're on.
It is my firm belief that Donald Trump will do the same thing. Because the experts that surround all of our politicians all believe those things.
This will be in direct conflict with what people, you and me, people who live in our streets, in America, in Canada, in Europe, in Russia, everywhere will be against it.
But Vladimir Putin has other designs. If you understand Neo-Eurasianism. Say it. Can you say it for me? Eurasianism. Neo-Eurasianism. If you understand that, which we will get into at a later date -- if you understand that, he is correcting the mistakes of modernism.
I want you -- the reason why I issued this warning yesterday -- and I can't give you a stronger warning -- I don't know if I ever have on anything. Yesterday, I wrote this on Facebook and said, "Look, there are some -- without getting into great detail, I'm going to be very general, but there are some things where you can spot their influence.
This is a generalization, and it is not always true. But if you take the time and read Facebook, you will notice that many times people are on Facebook, and it's like what they're saying is not in their first language. You will see that what they're saying and how they're writing it is not -- is clearly not their first language.
There are words that you may not have ever heard before or heard sparingly. But now all of a sudden, they are everywhere. And other terms and ideas that were not a conservative driving force -- for instance, trade barriers. That's not conservative. How come trade barriers are now suddenly so huge? There are ideas that were never conservative, but most of us just go, "Huh. I must have missed something. All of a sudden, this is everywhere. I don't know what that is." The way they're describing things with new spins, the ideas might sound really good. We just dismiss and support them or accept them.
If you repost (phonetic), one of the easiest wonders to know, you are now entering the world of the alt-right is the cuckservative. That word was nowhere. What the hell is a cuckservative? Right? How many times have you thought of that?
STU: This is a weird segment, man. We started out with masturbation shows, and now we're on to cuckservatives.
GLENN: Right. This is an easy sign to see that the writer has either been deeply influenced without his knowledge or is a member of the alt-right.
PAT: What is a cuckservative? I don't know what that is.
STU: Yeah. Cuckold.
STU: It's -- eh. I mean, it's not really stuff we can really talk about. But it's basically -- it started out as a racist slur, essentially.
STU: Saying that you don't -- you care so little, you're giving up your wife to black people, is essentially the accusation. And when you are --
PAT: Oh, we've been cuckolded?
GLENN: Yes, yes.
GLENN: But notice it has its roots in racism.
STU: Of course.
GLENN: So cuckservative is a cuckold and conservative put together.
GLENN: This is a word specifically designed by the alt-right. So when you see that word, warning. That should be a warning sign. But most people are just like, "Yeah, I like that word, or what is that that word?" They either dismiss, it or they adopt it. Do not adopt it.
We'll get into more of this here in a second.
GLENN: So, again, a hasty generalization on what's happening with the influence of Russia. Story came out yesterday about how Russia is now funding running guns and training to the alt-right in Europe.
This alt-right is, burn the entire thing down. And out of the ashes of global chaos, we will rise. And the -- the true alt-right, as it is understood in Russia and Europe and more so here in America, not by Trump or Trump supporters, but it is understood by people like Breitbart and Bannon. And I can say that because they've announced it and printed it themselves.
They know what they're doing. And the idea is burn the entire thing down. And out of the chaos, we will rise. And it is a very different world.
It is not what Trump supporters or anybody else wants. And I'm issuing this warning. I -- I'm telling you, this is as important as the warning that I gave before the collapse in '08 and the warning that I gave on the caliphate. More in a second. Don't go anywhere.
GLENN: This is going to require you to see new nuance and to see -- to see beyond generalizations. And that's what's going to make the alt-right so dangerous in the future. And I -- yesterday, on Facebook, I published a story about what Putin is doing in Hungary. You need to read it. You need to understand what's happening. Because it's happening over in Europe now. And it is happening here, hopefully not to this degree. But it will -- if it's not, it will soon.
Over in Europe, there are now Russian operatives that are training those in the alt-right how to fight, how to -- they're even arming them, giving them guns, and training them on how to cause chaos and terror. And you need to understand the role of Vladimir Putin.
So I'm -- I want to give very hasty generalizations. We'll get into this after the election with the chalkboard. I want you to know, this has nothing to do with Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. This would be happening if Ted Cruz were the nominee today. It is vital that you understand this, because this is something that we're going to be battling over the next, I don't know how many years. This is as important as the understanding of the caliphate.
But I want to give you quick generalization on how you know you're in the company of one of these people or one of these people who have been influenced, perhaps without their own knowledge.
One of the things, when you read on Facebook, if you see the word "cuckservative," run. That is an alt-right word. And it is -- it is -- it's everywhere now. And people have adopted it online. Don't adopt it. It is a word that is a tell on who is influencing the mind of these people.
There's also other things that are much less apparent, if you're just wrapped into the world of us and them.
Imagine, Stu, if I said to you now that you can no longer be an Eagles fan. You had to be a fan of the NFL. And, Pat, you could -- you could no longer be a fan of BYU. You had to be a fan of, what? The Big Ten. Right? Or -- is that right?
JEFFY: Just college football.
PAT: College football.
GLENN: College football. And you would say, "Well, I am a fan of college football. I am a fan of the NFL, but my team is -- yeah, but we don't play teams now. We don't play teams now.
Well, they're still on the --
It doesn't matter.
And they started phasing out and making everybody play in black-and-white uniforms. And every other game, they all switched uniforms. But it was just the NFL. And you were forced to cheer, "Yeah, go NFL!"
Imagine what the fans would feel. Well, that's what's happening with globalization. With things like the EU, we are -- in Sweden, if you hang the Swedish flag in front of your house, you are assumed to be a nationalist. The flag has even been taken away, to where they say, "Don't fly the flag. The flag is a symbol of nationalism. And we are open to the whole world. You can fly the EU flag." Imagine the power in Germany -- the power lost when they lost the Deutschmark.
Losing the Deutschmark and adopting the euro --
JEFFY: The euro.
GLENN: -- they were promised that things would get better. Their lifestyle has gone down. Their money isn't worth as much. They are no longer the engine. Even though they are the engine, they have to provide for everyone else, without their lifestyle going up. Okay?
This is real. And the people on the streets are feeling it. And when we say we're against globalism, what we mean as conservatives is, we are against jammed-down globalism. We're against things like the EU, where if you want to stay in the EU, stay in the EU. But if you're a country that the population says, "I don't like this," you should be able to leave.
But the elites have made it almost impossible for you to leave. Okay?
And if you want to leave, you're painted as a bad guy. That's not going to stand. But we as conservatives are for global trade. We are for -- we're not isolationists. We are not our country is better and your country sucks, so we should be able to destroy you.
We should be proud of what we have, just like I'm proud of my country -- my family. But that doesn't make my family better than your family.
Globalist is now a term to describe anyone. Notice anyone who is for free trade, is now a globalist. People who were deep -- deeply respected intellectual conservatives. Krauthammer, George Will, they're now cuckservatives and globalists?
Jonah Goldberg is now a globalist. I am now a globalist. That word is being thrown around everywhere. But it's thrown around by people who are in the alt-right. For instance, what's his crazy face.
PAT: Alex Jones. Uh-huh.
GLENN: Alex Jones, okay? This was the world -- everybody was, "Globalist. Globalist." But now it's spread. That's from the alt-right. And you need to be careful.
There are many words and ideas and people that are being mainstreamed, quite honestly, by Breitbart. And this is out in the open. They say it.
Steve Bannon has said, "We are a platform for the alt-right. They have become a platform. Milo Yiannopoulos is -- what? That's not his name?
Yeah, anyway, they have announced their official platform. Who is the guy that they say is the main voice? What's his name?
GLENN: Robert Spencer. Richard Spencer. Look him up. That's who Breitbart says is the main thinker for the alt-right. And we are a platform for the alt-right. Steve Bannon, exact quote.
Spencer's wife is the English language translator for Aleksandr Dugin. This is tied directly, in America, to Dugin and Putin.
The movement's origins are traced back to the opposition, and I think some of it justifiable of George W. Bush, especially the invasion of Iraq.
I am a noninterventionist. I don't think we need to be intervening everywhere.
There are times that we do. But that's a case-by-case basis. I think many of the problems are because we went in and said, "We'll give you freedom." And so we have become interventionists. We are the world's policemen.
Now, there's a difference between that -- globalist -- and an isolationist. An isolationist is also claiming that everyone who is against them is a globalist.
Be careful. The subtleties here are deadly. They are suspicious of free markets. They believe that business interests are in conflict to what they view as higher ideals, those of cultural preservation. They use the word "traditionalism, identism." On Breitbart, Milo Yiannopoulos, has issued a manifesto of what sorts of groups he believes are their allies and which ones are not. It's Beltway conservatives. They say hate the alt-right more than Democrats or progressives.
Please do not laugh this off. Please do not dismiss this. I am going to -- after we get past -- hopefully we do -- this election, hopefully we can return to a place to where we can all talk again. But please inform yourself. After the election, I'm going to be doing stuff and chalkboards on this. And even if it's five people that are paying attention to this, those five, you need to strap on the armor. Because it will mean the difference between conservatives surviving or not.
I want you to inform yourself on Neo-Eurasianism. Also, the forth political theory and Aleksandr Dugin.
A good book to start is this, if you have a pen: Eurasian Mission: An Introduction to Neo-Eurasianism.
There are other books. In fact, if you will give me a second, let me go into my kindle. There is another book that is also quite good called The American Empire Should Be Destroyed. These are the words of the alt-right and Aleksandr Dugin. Please read those. I will be doing chalkboards on them. I haven't done them yet because everything in the world we currently live in are becoming about Clinton or Trump. But this has been in play for many years. Again, I laid it out on a chalkboard while I was at Fox.
And the campaign season has allowed the alt-right and these operatives to plant deep roots among us because they thrive in division and hatred. But it doesn't matter who would have been the candidate. This is a powerful force. It is an outside force. And it is -- if we remain blind, it will be the winning force. These are not Trump supporters. Some are masquerading as Trump supporters. And they are infecting the entire conservative movement. But they were here long before Trump even thought of running. I don't believe Trump is involved or knows -- is aware of this, would take seriously the roots.
Clinton, I don't believe is aware of this. And here's what's going to happen: The left and the media will eventually lump these people with all conservatives, if we don't self-identify, know who they are, understand their philosophy, their plan, and can articulate it to our friend.
These people are a great, grave danger to the republic and to the freedom of the West. And they have already infiltrated the American right.
In some cases, as we pointed out two years ago, they have already funneled money into the American churches. That began with the gay marriage debate because this is what they do. They find the things where they can join in, but their version of the gay marriage debate is radically different than your version of the gay marriage debate. You might say, "Hey, it's none of the government's business, and I want my church to be able to stand up and say this is wrong." Their version is, "Take away the driver's license of gay people. Gay people should be destroyed."
What's happening in Europe and what is happening mainly in -- in Russia -- and you might say, "We'll never fall for that." But when anger is involved, look at what historically we have fallen for. The rounding up of the Japanese. "We would never do that." We already have.
