BuzzFeed Takes a Page From the Glenn Beck Playbook

While no chalkboard was involved, BuzzFeed recently published a diagram connecting the dots between businesses and people tied to Donald Trump, seemingly in an effort to track transparency in the new administration.

"Have you ever seen anything like this before?" Glenn asked Tuesday, feigning surprise.

The obvious answer is yes.

Glenn did the very same thing with Barack Obama, calling attention to the president's troublesome relationships with labor unions, community organizers and socialists. However, he was labeled a "conspiracy theorist" and called "insane" for doing so. Don't hold your breath, though, for anyone in the hypocritical mainstream media to notice the similarities --- or label BuzzFeed "crazy."

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: All right. So a couple of hard questions. Some for us, some for the media. Buzzfeed, help us map out Trump world.

What they've done is Buzzfeed has taken all of the business ventures that are connected to the Trump organization. So it's basically 7 degrees from Kevin Bacon. So anybody who is in direct business and then who is the next jumping point from them.

So Donald and then who is connected to his sons -- who is connected to anybody else in the organization?

PAT: Including his cabinet positions too.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: The people that are in his cabinet, they've also diagrammed them. So you're going to have all of the -- you know, the Goldman Sachs people, and that's going to be a tangled web too.

GLENN: Right. So it's an interesting thing.

PAT: It is. It's a very interesting thing.

GLENN: Right.

Have you ever seen anything like this before?

PAT: Yeah, I have.

GLENN: When have you seen that?

PAT: Let me think. Oh, that's -- with the Tides Foundation.

GLENN: With the Tides Foundation.

PAT: And George Soros.

GLENN: And George Soros. Why would I do that? And the labor unions. I remember SEIU. I remember the AFL-CIO.

PAT: You were trying to show that no president was more connected to all of these community organizing organizations.

GLENN: Right. So I was -- I diagrammed AFL-CIO. SEIU. ACORN, the Tides Foundation, and George Soros. And why did I do that?

Because I don't like these -- these community -- these harmless community organizing groups

PAT: And none of them are harmless. We all know they're social justice social organisms.

GLENN: Correct. Most of them are open borders, one world government, socialist, Marxist leaning.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Okay? Not the pillar of American constitutionalism. So what I did was I spent two years diagramming all of the connections. For that, I was mocked, ridiculed, and called a conspiracy theorist. Now, here's the mainstream media --

PAT: It's amazing.

GLENN: -- who is afraid of business connections, saying, we ought to know exactly who he's connected to.

But this, remember, is not a conspiracy theorist. This is the news media. So they're not into conspiracies. They just want to know all the connections.

Do you remember when Twitter -- how did I first use Twitter? When Twitter first came out, remember, we used it first for watchdogs.

PAT: Oh, right.

GLENN: If you see a connection we might have missed, bark. Let us know.

STU: That is what Buzzfeed is asking for.

GLENN: That is exactly what they're asking for. They've turned into me. How does that make you feel, Buzzfeed? How does that make you feel, mainstream media?

Now, I'm going to do what the mainstream media and Buzzfeed wouldn't do to me. I think this is valid. I think we should look at every single president and everyone who is around him. Because if we would have, we would find social justice warriors that were 9/11 truthers and communist sympathizers, like Van Jones. But you don't have a problem with Van Jones. So that's -- that's why it's a conspiracy to even talk about him.

PAT: They do have a problem with Goldman Sachs.

GLENN: Correct.

PAT: And every connection that leads to.

GLENN: Correct. They have a problem with businesses. They have a problem with ExxonMobil. We don't have a problem with that.

Now, the thing is, can we find a balance that we look for the bad guys in business and the bad guys in -- in community organizing? Can we do that?

The answer should be yes. But are we doing it? The answer is clearly no. Because there's no self-awareness from the media. Fix that first. Physician, heal thyself.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
