Glenn Beck: Violence from the left?



Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left


by David Horowitz

GLENN: We yesterday was kind of a big day for education. National Day of Action to Defend Education. There were national calls for action. This sent thousands of people out into the streets, California, there were people in Wisconsin, there were people in Illinois. There was violence involved. UC Berkeley probably was the biggest. David Horowitz is here with me now. Hi, David.

HOROWITZ: Morning, Glenn.

GLENN: David, you were part of the 1960s generation that, you know, you were a useful idiot. Would you agree with that?

HOROWITZ: (Laughing). Well, I thought of myself as more than that.

GLENN: No, but I mean, that's what Stalin

HOROWITZ: I was a Marxist revolutionary. That's the way I would have described myself. And I was a leader of the new left and edited its largest magazine. And what the new left was, you know, was created, it was a disintegration of the Communist Party really because of the revelations about Stalin coming from Kruschev. So what happened was that the movement, it was a lot of groups. What you see in these protests is hundreds of groups. We used to call it the hydraheaded monster and we created it too fool people that we had different agendas from the from what the communists had. But actually they're the same agendas, that corporations are evil, we want socialism, we want the government to own everything and control everything and create social justice. And that's what happened yesterday.

If you look down the organizations, they were all in a coalition called Defend Education. But if you look at them, for example, there's one, Bail Out the People Movement, bail out the people, not the banks. This is a front group for the for International Answer, which is a pro North Korea Communist Party. I mean, it's a Bolshevik party that demonstrated the anti Iraq organizations. It was the leading organizer.

GLENN: I remember that.

HOROWITZ: Yeah, you have something called Anakbayan. There's a lot of those, which means sons and daughters of the people. If you look at the movement, you know how they support Hamas and Hezbollah, the terrorists. They have got this campaign to stop the U.S. military occupation of Haiti. This is what I call the neocommunist core of the progressive movement. The progressive movement includes fellow, what I would call fellow travelers. I mean, there are a lot of people who are on the left who would understand that there's a lot of crazies in the movement. And then you have SDS, you know, which is a violent campus organization.

GLENN: SDS, SDS is where the Weather Underground came from.

HOROWITZ: That's right, yes.

GLENN: Right.

HOROWITZ: They were all SDS. They got elected to the SDS leadership and then they said we're going underground and we're going to, we're going to you know, we're going to be authentic revolutionaries. We're not just going to scream revolutionary slogans. We're going to actually blow things up. That was their

GLENN: What's the

HOROWITZ: There are a lot of groups in here like that. There's MEChA which wants to take back the southwest, is a racist organization. They call the southwest Aztlán, which I think is an Aztec name.

GLENN: Well, I love the logo of this organization because it has the eagle with a stick of dynamite in its claw.

HOROWITZ: Well, yeah. I mean, I actually, I like the out front people.

GLENN: Yeah. Me, too.

HOROWITZ: They tell you

GLENN: They're much better than, they are much better than what we have in the White House right now, the Van Jones of the world.

HOROWITZ: That's right.

GLENN: That are I mean, is there any doubt in your mind that Van Jones because I've read what some of these people are calling for. It's exactly what Van Jones is calling for. Is there any doubt in your mind that Van Jones is as radical as these groups?

HOROWITZ: Of course he is. You can always as somebody who came out of the left, I can you know, I can tell you if you turn against it, if you understand how evil it is and destructive and it wants to destroy America and you don't want to do that, you do what I did. I mean, you get out and you denounce them and you work against them. It's very easy to tell who's an authentic a person who's authentically had different ideas and somebody who's just concealing the same agendas, you know, with a front. And that's what Van Jones is.

GLENN: I was in a cab I was at a cab yesterday and the cabdriver was from Russia, former Soviet Union. And he said finally he just pulled over to drop me off and he said, Mr. Beck, I want you to know I am a very big fan. And I said, thank you very much, sir. And he said, people in America, they don't understand. We talked for a little while about the code language. He said even my daughter now, he came before the fall of the Soviet Union. He said, even my daughter who is in college now is falling for the code language, and she doesn't believe me. And I keep telling her, listen, this is the code language of the Soviet Union. Agree or disagree, David?

HOROWITZ: Absolute I call them neocommunists. We have a term, you know, neoliberals, neoconservatives, neo Nazis. These are neocommunists. Same agendas, different faith. Like parents who are members of the Communist Party never refer to themselves as communists. They were always progressives. The slogan of the Communist Party at the height under Stalin was peace, jobs and democracy. That was the Communist Party slogan. But you can look, if you just go down the list of these organizations. And let me just say not only are there these, you know, fight imperialism and so forth but there's the American Federation of Teachers, there's all these graduate

GLENN: There's unions.

HOROWITZ: Unions. There's the department of English at Penn State. Indiana university is one of the

GLENN: David, are the unions you watch the TV show, right?

HOROWITZ: Yes.

GLENN: Yes. Have you seen the language that we've been showing people lately from Andy Stern, with the workers of the world?

HOROWITZ: Andy Stern is an old SDS radical. He's a Leninist. The two, what I would you know, the two communist unions, aside from the teacher unions would be the SEIU and ASME, which is the municipal employees which is also here.

GLENN: It's a sponsor of this.

HOROWITZ: You know, when there were antiglobalization riots, they're there. They're part of this movement. There's a good one that I like here: Destroy Industry in Raleigh, North Carolina. I mean, that tells you what they're about. It's just terrible.

GLENN: David, how much I said earlier today, we played this Bald Communist. Play this for David, will you, Pat, the Bald Communist? Listen to this.

VOICE: And this is part of the thing is I don't think we're going to be meeting people's day to day needs and I don't think we have to help this capitalist system which has met the needs of American working people on the backs of third world plantations for my whole lifetime. We don't have to help that. We have to help bring this government down. We have to help destroy this system and that requires increasing the alienation that working class and oppressed people feel.

HOROWITZ: Yeah. Glenn, yeah, I saw that tape. And thank you for bringing that to light. What this guy is saying is what everybody on the left believes. It's very hard to convey this to people. People, Americans, it's just very benign and tolerant and they're always giving people the benefit of the doubt. What this guy is saying is what they believe. He has the poor judgment to say it on tape. But this is what

GLENN: Thank God.

HOROWITZ: What everybody who wants to change the world, what else could they be thinking? You know, there are ways of changing the world which is that you tell people, you know, we want to create a society where the government controls everything, and you put it up for a vote. In a democracy you put it up for a vote. But these people have these hidden agendas and that's what makes them so dangerous.

GLENN: So David, let me ask you two questions. The first one is, my theory is the people that are your generation that were part of SDS, that were part of the radical left back in the 1960s, they now are the ruling class and they are in congress, they are in the White House, they are in business. They're everywhere. They have power. And they're also very sly now because they're undercover. These people are at the top and they understand because they did it themselves, they understand now what they didn't have in the 1960s was power at the top. So now they can stir up the hate and the students and bring the student activists into play, get them going while they apply pressure at the top and they pop the middle. Does that sound reasonable to you?

HOROWITZ: Well, yeah. I think there's a little bit more complicated, but you have absolutely described what is. That is, the people who were in the movement, we used to call it the movement in the Sixties now are running the government and they run the New York Times and the Washington Post. All those people were part of the left, of the Sixties. And their agendas are the same as these other people. Their tactics are different. So I don't I think some of them are, you know, embarrassed by this kind of radicalism. Certainly by that guy who you have on tape. They feel he is hurting their cause. We want to conceal, we want to conceal the agendas of the cause.

GLENN: Right. But their agenda is

HOROWITZ: But their agendas are identical because, look, to defend the free market system, you defend private property, you defend individual rights and you oppose group collective rights, or you don't. And we saw all these so called liberals and progressives, they are against the First Amendment, they attacked the Supreme Court decision which was a basic First Amendment decision. They are for they're racists. They are for racial references that is privileging certain designated groups who they call oppressed. I mean, they've corrupted our laws that way. And they are for socialism.

GLENN: Okay.

HOROWITZ: Obviously there wouldn't be this unbelievable push for a healthcare plan that, you know, a vast majority of people does not want if they didn't have these agendas. They want control. It's about control.

GLENN: David, hold on just a second because I have to take a quick break and then I'm going to come back and I want to ask you this one question and that is, how much danger are we in from the extreme radical left if things like healthcare don't pass? If this, if this movement now breaks down, how much danger is the country in? Back in just a second.

(OUT 10:49)

GLENN: Back with David Horowitz, we have a special tonight on indoctrination, video you must, must see, things that are going on in your country that you had absolutely no idea. I asked David before we went into the break, I'm concerned about this extreme left because as Andy Stern said, you know, we want our money's worth. These people have put a lot of time, a lot of attention, a lot of manpower, a lot of money behind this agenda, specifically healthcare, and counted on Barack Obama. They are starting to mobilize in kind of violent ways. How much trouble are we in, David, if this thing starts to fall apart with Barack Obama and healthcare isn't passed?

HOROWITZ: I think the potential for violence and actually disastrous violence is very real and that is because these first of all, these are violent groups and they will commit violent acts. But much more serious is that they are integrated with our terrorist enemies. They have networks and their ideology links them into the Islamic jihad. I've written a book about this called Unholy Alliance. I actually, I mean, I have experience of this. I mean, I was a very intellectual leftist. I never threw a rock. But as the editor of Ramparts magazine, which is the biggest magazine of the left, I was approached by an editorial board was approached by a defector from our intelligence services. And we printed national secrets in the magazine and, of course, nothing, nothing happened to us. We were advised by I was advised actually by Harvard law professor, still a professor of constitutional law on exactly how to commit treason.

GLENN: Holy cow.

HOROWITZ: So this mentality, I'm telling you the revolutionary mentality, the idea that you can change the world or change America fundamentally, which is what Obama said, is a very, very dangerous mentality.

GLENN: All right. David, I've got to run. Thank you so much. We'll talk again. I'd like to follow up some more with you in the coming days on Andy Stern and his connection to SDS. Back in just a second.

  • Stringent density control measures may be working to contain the coronavirus in New York state, the epicenter of COVID-19 outbreak in the US, as the rate of hospitalization shows early signs of abating, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.
  • New York, which has 19 million residents and nearly 31,000 infections, now accounts for 56 per cent of the confirmed cases in the country and more than 7 percent of the world's total.
  • Cuomo had ordered all but essential businesses to shutter by Sunday evening and residents to limit their outdoor activities and practice social distancing, effectively putting the state on pause.
  • On Tuesday, the number of hospitalized patients had doubled every 4.7 days, slowing from the rate of every 3.4 days on Monday and every two days on Sunday, Cuomo said at his daily coronavirus briefing.
  • "This is a very positive sign," he said. "The arrows are heading into the right direction."
Were the Beads Worth It? Mardi Gras Gets Blame for Big Easy Outbreak https://news.trust.org/item/20200325200808-oc1ie
  • "Mardi Gras was the perfect storm, it provided the perfect conditions for the spread of this virus," said Dr. Rebekah Gee, who heads up Louisiana State University's health care services division.
  • She noted that Fat Tuesday fell on Feb. 25, when the virus was already in the United States but before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and national leaders had raised the alarm with the American public.
  • "New Orleans had its normal level of celebration, which involved people congregating in large crowds and some 1.4 million tourists," Gee said. "We shared drink cups. We shared each other's space in the crowds. People were in close contact with catching beads. It is now clear that people also caught coronavirus."
  • New Orleans is on track to become the next coronavirus epicenter in the United States, dimming hopes that less densely populated and warmer-climate cities would escape the worst of the pandemic, and that summer month could see it wane.
  • Authorities have warned the number of cases in New Orleans could overwhelm its hospitals by April 4.
  • New Orleans is the biggest city in Louisiana, the state with the third-highest caseload of coronavirus in the United States on a per capita basis.
  • The growth rate in Louisiana tops all others, according to a University of Louisiana at Lafayette analysis of global data, with the number of cases rising by 30% in the 24 hours before noon on Wednesday.
  • On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump issued a major federal disaster declaration for the state, freeing federal funds and resources.
US Military Officially On No-Travel Lockdown https://news.trust.org/item/20200325203242-zgoc4
  • Defense Secretary Mark Esper has issued a "stop all movement" order to the U.S. military halting travel and movement abroad for up to 60 days in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus through the ranks.
  • The measure is by far the Defense Department's most sweeping to date and will affect forces around the world.
  • Esper said in an interview that the order applied to all U.S. troops, civilian personnel and families, but noted that there would be some exceptions.
  • "The purpose is to make sure that we're not bringing the virus back home, infecting others, that we're not spreading it around the military," Esper said.
  • The order does include personnel who were to have been scheduled to be formally discharged from the Military in April or May.
  • Esper said one exception to the order would be the drawdown underway in Afghanistan, which will continue.
For The Best Darn Facemask In The Whole Wide World... https://www.foxnews.com/us/mypillow-other-us-companies-making-face-masks-to-meet-coronavirus-shortages
  • In Minnesota, the MyPillow company is refocusing 75 percent of its production to face masks for health care workers.
  • "We have the capacity to make a lot of things at big rates and we're going to be going hopefully from 10,000 units a day to 50,000 units a day in a very short period of time," CEO Mike Lindell told FOX 9 of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
  • The masks will go to hospitals in Minnesota as well as other states, he said. "Whatever it takes."
  • MyPillow worked with the Trump administration to get the proper design, Lindell told local Fox News 9.
  • Lindell joins literally hundreds of other companies in the US who have heeded the call of the Trump Administration to covert production to respirators, masks, ventilators, gowns and other needed medical equipment.
Further Evidence that COVID-19 Is Seasonal and May Spread Less in Summer Months https://news.yahoo.com/coronavirus-could-become-seasonal-top-us-scientist-001146451.html
  • There is a strong chance the new coronavirus could return in seasonal cycles, a senior US scientist said Wednesday, underscoring the urgent need to find a vaccine and effective treatments.
  • Anthony Fauci, who leads research into infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told a briefing the virus was beginning to take root in the southern hemisphere, where winter is on its way.
  • "What we're starting to see now... in southern Africa and in the southern hemisphere countries, is that we're having cases that are appearing as they go into their winter season," he said.
  • "And if, in fact, they have a substantial outbreak, it will be inevitable that we need to be prepared that we'll get a cycle around the second time," Fauci said, referring to a 2nd cycle in the US late next fall in November or December.
  • "It totally emphasizes the need to do what we're doing in developing a vaccine, testing it quickly and trying to get it ready so that we'll have a vaccine available for that next cycle."
  • Fauci's comments suggesting the virus does better in colder weather than it does in hot and humid conditions follows a recent Chinese research paper -- still preliminary and awaiting peer-review -- that reached the same conclusion.

  • At the close of 2019, there were an unprecedented 11 million American millionaires, a reflection of the longest bull market in history thanks to ultra-low interest rates and tax cuts.
  • Fast forward just a few months and it's a starkly different picture. The number of households in the U.S. above that threshold has dropped by at least 500,000 as of Friday, according to research firm Spectrem Group.
  • The tandem financial and health crises wrought by COVID-19 have disproportionately eroded the fortunes of the wealthy, who are more likely to own equities than the overall population.
  • At the end of 2019, the top 1% of households owned 53.5% of equities and mutual fund shares, according to Federal Reserve statistics.
  • The losses affected the rich at every level, from the mass affluent to those worth more than $25 million, according to the report. The wealth destruction at the very top has been especially steep, with the top 1% of households losing over $7.9 Trillion in wealth so far in 2020.

  • A total of 13 states and at least 16 municipalities have enacted measures to keep residents inside their homes to prevent the spread of the virus, according to CNN.
  • That number, which amounts to 148,577,262 people, or 45% of the population, is expected to grow this week as five more states and nine more municipalities institute additional measures.
  • After the new orders go into effect, a total of 176,385,537 people, or 54% of the population, will be asked to stay home.
  • Many states and cities have not named a specific date, although some, such as LA County and the State of New York, have identified April 19th as the target 'end' of the at-home quarantine orders.
Uniformed Military Personnel Set Up Make-shift Morgue Outside NYC Hospital https://nypost.com/2020/03/24/makeshift-morgue-for-coronavirus-victims-set-up-outside-nyc-hospital/
  • In a scene reminiscent of Hollywood disaster movies (and more recently China, Italy and Spain), US Military personnel have set up a tent-based morgue outside of Bellvue Hospital in NYC.
  • Two refrigerated trailers were trucked to the site at 30th Street and the FDR Drive, along with a customized RV with a printed sign labeled: "MOBILE COMMAND CENTER — MEDICAL EXAMINER."
  • A team of men wearing camouflage fatigues and face masks set up a series of white tents that form a tunnel to a larger, white tent.
  • Other men wearing jackets that identified them as members of the NYPD and the city's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner were also at the scene.
  • A source familiar with the operation said that additional refrigerated trailers would be brought to the site and that similar set-ups would be built up outside other hospitals.
  • "The plan is for them to be there and throughout the city," the source said, with as many as 6 temporary morgue locations near hospitals in New York City.
UV Rays Proven to Destroy SARS-Cov-2 Virus https://www.accuweather.com/en/health-wellness/what-infection-rates-in-iceland-and-australia-may-reveal-about-how-covid-19-could-spread-in-the-us/707057
  • The infection rate for COVID-19 is 22 times higher in Iceland as compared to Australia.
  • The research comes as scientists in Hong Kong demonstrate that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, is easily destroyed with UV light, just like all other known Coronaviruses.
  • "Direct exposure to UV light breaks down the membrane that houses the RNA of the virus," Dr Lon Kiang, lead researcher of the study said. Without the membrane, the virus cannot attach itself to healthy cells in the human body.
  • "This was expected, but is still certainly good news," he said.
  • Researchers said the findings may indicate that the virus will have a harder time spreading during warmer summer months, when more UV light strikes surfaces, including clothing and human skin, which may contain viral particles.
  • Scientists warned against directly and intentionally exposing skin to UV lights, which can cause burns and carries other risks, such as Cancer.

The mainstream media and the left are eager to report anything negative about President Donald Trump, even if it turns out to be Chinese Communist Party propaganda and disinformation.

On "GlennTV," Glenn uncovered some of the lies China's Communist Party is peddling to its own people and the rest of the world.

Diagnosed with pneumonia and coronavirus, Rio Giardinieri, 52, was admitted to the ICU at Joe DiMaggio hospital in South Florida. After more than a week without showing any improvement, doctors told him there was nothing more they could do. Desperately ill, Giardinieri started saying his "goodbyes" to family and friends.

That's when a friend told him there was a potential "cure" for coronavirus, an anti-malaria drug called hydroxycloroquine. Though doctors at the hospital said they couldn't prescribe hydroxycloroquine, they put Giardinieri in touch with an infectious disease doctor who authorized the use. The next morning, he says he woke up feeling "absolutely perfect."

Giardinieri joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to share his remarkable story and to weigh in on why he thinks information about this promising treatment for COVID-19 isn't being made more readily available.

"I'm not a scientist. I'm not a doctor. I can just tell you how I feel. And I know that I was not doing well. In my mind, I didn't believe I was going to be here by the morning," Giardinieri said. "I don't know what else to attribute [for recovery] but that medicine ... and it's not just me that it's worked for. There're many people this has worked for. So, you know, I certainly understand the hospital's position. They may not be too happy me telling the story. But the facts are the facts."
