We're Being Marched Toward '1984'




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel

Last November we were told that America needs to break through the "politics of fear."

We didn't want to be ruled by the fear of global terrorism, fear of a third World War or fear of a foreign army marching against us.

We were told America was sick and tired of the eavesdropping of the Patriot Act.

"Big Brother" in the Bush administration did nothing to free us from the energy grip of foreign dictators or the lobbying efforts of big business. Through Dick Cheney's so-called "emergency" laws, the fascist state's grip started to tighten.

But that wasn't what America said it wanted, so it did the quintessentially American thing: voted the other way.

Now, with the other guy in power, people are realizing that the grass isn't nearly as green as it looked. Americans on both sides are saying, wait a minute, I've seen this movie before. Enough.

Now we have the tea parties, the 9/12 Project and today, the G20 riots on TV — all proving that no matter what side of the aisle (whether it's radicals with an agenda or a mom or a plumber) people are once again feeling oppressed by an out-of-control state.

We watch as day after day problems that can and should be solved locally are instead made worse with thousand-page bills, public/private partnerships, or global treaties.

So now we have a different fear.

We were afraid the government is growing larger. We are now afraid of the exact things that I was called crazy for even suggesting just a couple of years ago: Things like nationalizing our banks; putting the government in charge of private payrolls; moving to nationalize our auto industry and — here's the key one — using the word "crisis" to obtain the unprecedented power needed to make it all happen.

It all adds up to me having to now admit that I was wrong. Our government is not marching our country down the road toward communism or even socialism. They're marching us toward a brand of non-violent fascism or, to put it in another way, they're marching us toward "1984."

They are watching; they are controlling; they are telling you how to run your business, your life and how to parent your children.

As thousands of protesters riot on the streets of London for anarchy, those inside are taking part in an even more dramatic demonstration. They are going after the power that comes with creating a globally run financial system.

So what does all of this mean? I think there are two things:

One, fascism is on the rise — and that doesn't mean Adolf Hitler.

And two, all of it is an illusion. The minute you turn on the lights or peek behind the curtain, you realize that Big Brother isn't so big. The politics of fear used by the left and right aren't so scary.

Thanks to our Founding Fathers, they have no choice but to answer to us, if we hold them to our founding principles. But, to do that, we must empower ourselves and stand up with our voices, our minds and our hearts to remind them that it's we the people who run this show.

We need to raise our expectations and demand more from our government. Until we do that, we'll continue to get exactly what we deserve.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
