CHILLING: 6 facts about communism you won’t hear in today’s pop culture

“Communism is looked at as something we can borrow from liberally,” said Glenn by way of introduction to today’s show, the second in a 2-part feature on the history of communism and what really happens when communism takes hold of a country. “The truth is that [communism] is among history’s most proficient killers.”

Here are some of the chilling facts and stats:

  1. Nearly 100 million people died under communist regimes.
  2. Chinese dictator Mao Zedong, aka ‘Chairman Mao,’ was responsible for executions, imprisonments, forced famines and labor camps that killed an estimated 65 million of his own countrymen.
  3. Cuban Revolutionist and pop-culture icon, Che Guevara, ordered hundreds of executions by firing squad without trials. He famously said, “We executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation.” He also famously hated America, free speech, and rock n’ roll music.
  4. An estimated 7,000,000 people perished under the dictatorship of Joseph Stalin, the dictator of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Many died from famine after the government’s forced collectivization of farmland.
  5. 33-42 percent of American millennials say they are unfamiliar with Mao, Guevara and Lenin.
  6. Among the millennials who are familiar, at least a quarter have a favorableimpression of Guevara, Marx, and Lenin.

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.
