Glenn Beck: You Might Be an Extremist If...




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

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says an agency report warning of potential rise in activity by right-wing extremists didn't violate anyone's rights and is only meant to help cops do their job.

But the one thing our government doesn't seem to understand anymore — and this was on display quite clearly on Wednesday — is that being concerned about your country doesn't make you an extremist.

If you attended tea party, you were called — quote — "steeped in insanity" by The L.A. Times; "nutjobs" by The Washington Post; and your actions were seen as quote "not really family viewing," by CNN.

And then you had the activists.

Left-wing blogs like Daily Kos not only mocked the tea party attendees as GOP plants, they also spoke publicly about infiltrating the events along with groups like ACORN. They were adamant that us extremists would never be able to get together, but they were wrong — I haven't heard a single report of violence. Imagine that kind of peace at a Code Pink protest or a G20 summit?

Meanwhile, the government says you may be an extremist if you, "feared, predicted and anticipated a cataclysmic economic collapse in the United States..."

OK, so people like Alan Greenspan are fine because they never saw it coming, but I'm an extremist? That's government logic for you.

You might also be an extremist if "you incorporated aspects of an impending economic collapse to intensify fear and paranoia among like-minded individuals...."

Guilty — except that it's not about intensifying panic, it's about preparation.

A few weeks ago I did that whole "War Room" special about a global economic collapse and it was endlessly mocked on shows like Colbert. But last month the Pentagon itself held a two-day war-gaming session on how our enemies might use the crisis to cripple us.

Does that make them extremists too? Where is Colbert now?

Let me get this straight: Bush and Obama put us on the hook for $12.8 trillion, but I'm the extremist?

Lawmakers stuff $20 billion in pork and earmarks into spending bills, but I'm the extremist?

We have to beg the Chinese to keep loaning us money, but I'm the extremist?

Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg and Harold Koh who will help run the State Department, both talk about trans-nationalism and, by definition, a diminished role for the Constitution, but I'm the extremist?

I believe in the Constitution, the Founding Fathers and the American people. Does that make me an extremist or does it make me someone who loves his country and refuses to sit idly by as it's "reshaped" and "redefined"?

More than 300,000 people stood shoulder-to-shoulder across the country yesterday to send a clear message to both parties: Our country is off track and no one is listening.

And what's President Obama's response? A statement: "The president is unaware of the tea parties and will hold his own event today."

And people still wonder what we're so upset about.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
