Glenn Beck: Show Me Your Friends...




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5pm & 2am ET on FOX News Channel

You've probably heard the saying, "Show me your friends and I will show you your future." If that's true, here's the one thing: What can we learn about where we're going from President Obama's and ACORN's friends?

We've been trying to figure that out, as has "The O'Reilly Factor":

DAN BANK, 'FACTOR' PRODUCER: Excuse me, ma'am? I'm trying to go into the ACORN house. I'm wondering if you know what exactly is going on in there?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No, I don't.

BANK: OK.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No, you need to take that off of me.

BANK: Do you normally go in there?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don't think it's any of your business.

BANK: Well, I have here over 270 organizations that use that as their mailing address for millions of dollars going in. Do you know what that's all about?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No, I don't.

BANK: Do you know Wade Rathke?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don't need to answer that.

But apparently asking a few questions is such a cause for concern that about a dozen left-wing groups needed to hold a strategy session today at the Center for American Progress, the liberal policy center run by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta.

The organizations are meeting to try to come up with how to deal with all the bad press from right-wing hate-mongers about ACORN.

Among the groups are: Advancement Project; Alliance for Justice; Center for American Progress Action Fund; Center for Community Change; Common Cause; Fair Elections Legal Network; Leadership Conference on Civil Rights and People for the American Way.

Meanwhile, ACORN's chief organizer and CEO Bertha Lewis is reportedly the featured speaker.

So, what do we know of these ACORN friends?

Time Magazine said of the Center that there is, "No group in Washington with more influence at this moment in history," since President Obama has nominated so many of its past and present staff members.

George Soros gave the group $3 million to get started. Among the groups attending are the kind of left-wing movers and shakers you might expect. For example, the Advancement Project has board members from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the powerful Service Employees International Union.

Meanwhile, the Center of Community Change has several union members on its board and lists on its Web site that it helped establish the Community Reinvestment Act. That, as you'll remember, caused the financial mess we're in right now. So they might consider leaving that off the resume.

The People for the American Way inspired MoveOn.org.

And this is all just scratching the surface.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

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.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
