Surge of Jewish Center Bomb Threats Reminds Us 'Never Again' Has Never Mattered More

Anti-Semitic threats are on the rise according to the AMCHA Initiative, a site dedicated to protecting Jewish students in America. Their statistics show a jump from 469 incidents in 2015 to 613 in 2016 and 30 already reported this year.

The Anti-Defamation League released a report showing a 50 percent increase in violent anti-Semitic assaults since 2014. This past month, a rash of bomb threats plagued Jewish centers around the country --- 57 threats in 26 states to be exact.

Some have been quick to point the finger at Donald Trump for this uptick in violent rhetoric and threats. Lauren Levey wrote this for The Huffington Post:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation reported that of the 1,402 victims of anti-religious hate crimes reported in the United States in 2015, 52.1 percent were victims of crimes motivated by anti-Jewish bias. Based on the dramatic spike in hate crimes following the recent presidential election, there is reason to suspect the 2016 figures will be even higher.

But others on the left recognize the problem runs deep on both side of the aisle. Emily Shire from Bustle wrote:

The deeply disturbing and frustrating reality is that there is a problem with anti-Semitism on the left as well as the right. It often seems to get less attention and, frankly, criticism.

Much to the amazement of many conservatives, America somehow managed to survive the Obama administration. Now, the left is petrified a Trump administration will burn the republic to the ground and fundamentally transform America just as radically as Barack Obama did for their side.

Throughout the Obama years, many tossed around the idea he was a dictator in waiting and some even compared him to Hitler. Mike Huckabee once said quite harshly, "[Obama] will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven."

Thanks to a president who is self-admittedly "loose" with his language, many on the left pounce on Trump's poorly worded ramblings and reassemble them to fit their paradigm of "Trump is Hitler."

In resisting "Trumpism," the left has awoken from their dismissive slumber over the past eight years and the change is quite refreshing. A social media campaign featuring New Yorkers removing anti-Semitic graffiti on the subways has gone viral, showing people come together in a powerful way.

Shire explained why this coming together had nothing to do with "resisting Trump":

The subway incident this weekend in New York included a specifically anti-Israel message among the Swastikas, "Destroy Israel." I bring that up not to claim that the horrible anti-Semitic graffiti came from someone on the far left. There is absolutely zero evidence that it did --- but there's also zero evidence that it came from a far-right Trump supporter.

The fact that we simply do not know the motivation behind the person or people who defaced the New York subway with such revolting graffiti may be the best reason not to consider it --- or the response --- to be a partisan issue.

It turns out while he was a poor friend to Israel and stabbed them in the back every chance he could, Obama was not Hitler despite the admonitions of many on the right. While there is still a long way to go and a lot to be nervous about with Trump, he is not Hitler and probably won't be either.

What's dangerous about throwing these accusations around so carelessly is that while chances are slim a Hitler would end up in the White House, real anti-Semitism is running rampant around the world. It is becoming more and more prevalent, even here in America.

Swastikas are being left with political messages and anti-Semitic leaflets are spreading across college campuses, and what do we do? We try to tie it to the other party, the other side --- because our side could never be so vile. If a swastika shows up with Trump scrawled alongside it, it must have been a liberal trying to frame "our guy" and make him look bad.

The left, on the other hand, thinks, "See? Those conservatives really are evil --- let's get 'em."

In most cases, the truth is something entirely different. Option C just might be an anarchist --- not a D or an R --- following the same path of destruction that led to Hitler and the Holocaust.

The evil that possesses someone's heart to threaten or commit acts of violence is not a political ideology, it doesn't belong to a party and it doesn't wear a team jersey. It can infiltrate either side, wrap itself in a flag and further divide an already divided house.

"Never Again" has more to do with our own hearts than who is in office. It's time to stop looking for the next Hitler and time to eliminate hate.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
