Chalkboard Lesson: Timeline — the Evolution of Antifa, Post-WWII

In this video excerpt from Glenn’s week-long chalkboard series on ‘antifa,’ Glenn continues with the evolution of anti-fascism after World War II. [To see a clip from Part 1, click here.]

“Antifa groups were generally dormant for the first couple of decades during the cold war,” said Glenn. “But then every thing began to change: it changed with music.”

  • Starting in Britain in the late 1960’s, groups of mostly young white males who identified themselves as “skinheads,” congregated around “counter-cultural” bands like The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, and The Who. Skinheads rebelled against the hippie culture and were often violent toward minorities.

  • In the late 1970’s, skinheads gravitated toward the punk music scene, listening to bands like The Clash, The Ramones, and The Sex Pistols. It was during this time that the often-violent skinhead culture split into two opposing movements: the neo-Nazis and a resurgence of antifa. Also around this same time, violent groups of protesters in Europe starting sporting a style of dress they called “blackblock” to hide their identity behind all black clothing and a mask. Antifa protesters, who at the time opposed the neo-Nazis, adopted the blackblock clothing to avoid arrest and retaliation.

  • During the 1980’s and 90’s, a skinhead sub-culture sprang up across the US. Like their European counterparts, American skinheads had two opposing sides: the neo-Nazis and what started as a group called “Anti-racist Action” but eventually became the American version of antifa.

  • In 2011, antifa launched the Occupy Wall Street movement to rally against a variety of causes including income inequality, the influence of money in politics, and corporate greed….

“Wait a minute. I thought antifa was fighting Nazis and racists,” said Glenn. “Now they are fighting international trade and Wall Street?”

So when did antifa expand their list of oppositions to include, “anything that they deem oppressive including free speech and capitalism?”

Bill O’Reilly: ‘INSANE’ how badly Kamala & Biden handled border crisis

Vice President Kamala Harris — tasked by President Biden to handle the current border crisis — is currently on, what Bill O'Reilly calls, 'the befuddlement tour.' So not only has Joe Biden ruined the border situation beyond repair, O'Reilly explains, he's now also chosen somebody who seemingly is incapable of solving problems to fix the problem. O'Reilly says it's 'INSANE' how badly they've handled this situation and that it's time for Americans to take a stand, show the government some backlash, and finally say 'enough!'

Biden's Hostile Takeover: The Great Reset of America

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?
