Glenn Beck: Your Science Czar is a Commie

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.

GLENN: All right. I made a pretty hefty charge here a minute ago that I quoted Barack Obama saying that healthcare ‑‑ I'm sorry, reparations don't go far enough. They need to be able to get into our schools, they need to get into, you know, colleges and level the playing field and have free universal college, that way it will disproportionately help blacks. He said that about healthcare and also about the green jobs. Let's see if we can see this be implemented now without you know what's going on. Let's look at our science update today. His new science czar, what is this guy's first name, Jones? Van Jones. Van Jones is a guy that was all caught up in the Rodney King trial and he was actually arrested, went into jail in April, got out in August. So he was arrested for some pretty bad stuff apparently. I mean, that's not a night in jail. He said, you know, I was just an angry guy when I went in but when I came out, I was a radical communist. This isn't, you know, 1968. This is in the 1990s. He was a radical communist. He hasn't shed that. He's still a radical. He is still a black nationalist. He is also now your green job czar. How did he go from a guy who was riding the streets, going to jail, becoming a communist to the green job czar? Well, because he said he found the eco movement and decided this is the best way to carry out his agenda. This is just a quote from one of his speeches. He said, I don't want to offend anybody here. I might be too radical for you. Are you with me? He asked. One woman called out, just being real. Quote: They can now put up wind turbines — almost like a windmill, but this is not your mama’s windmill, it’s like a big jet engine sitting up there — and make power. Somebody's going to make a billion dollars deploying that technology (GE). I think it should be you. They have this thing called solar panels. A solar panel is a piece of glass almost. Right now wealthy people can put that on their homes and it cost money to put it there. But once it's up, sunlight hits it and turns it into electricity and powers the house. So you're paying electricity bill, but somebody else is just kicking it. Somebody's going to make a million dollars figuring out a way to get these solar panels made and deployed in our hoods. I think it should be you.

After he was done ‑‑ now, by the way, this quote comes not from some radical rightwing hatchet piece. This is a piece in the New Yorker on Van Jones: After he was through, Jones made his way out of the nearly empty downtown, he says to the reporter, quote: That was my street rap. You get to hear my elite rap later on.

So he's admitting that he's "Working" the program. A few months ago Jones has published a book. It's out called The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems. Hmmm. In it he argues the best way to fight both global warming and urban poverty is to create millions of green jobs. Listen carefully, please. Your country is being hijacked. They are using things like green jobs as a front. They are using healthcare as a front. In the context of Obama style reparations, that's what they're doing. In it, he argues, in his book, The Green Collar Economy, he argues the best way to fight global warming and urban poverty is by millions of green jobs, weatherizing buildings, installing solar panels and constructing mass transit systems. A percentage of these jobs ‑‑ Jones is purposely vague about how many ‑‑ should go to the disadvantaged and the chronically unemployed. Chronically unemployed. Usually there's a reason you are chronically unemployed. He says in his book, quote: The green economy should not just be about reclaiming thrown‑away stuff. It should be about reclaiming thrown‑away communities.

This is yet another community organizer. This is yet another black nationalist in the same way that Reverend Jeremiah Wright is a black nationalist. This is an acclaimed, self‑acclaimed communist who has just written the book, "How one solution, green collar jobs, can fix two problems." Climate, if he even believes it. He wasn't a believer before he went to prison. If he even believes it. Climate will solve inner city poverty. How? Because we'll take money from the people who can afford to have this piece of glass thingy and the jet engine on their house and get them to pay to put a jet ‑‑ I'm just quoting him ‑‑ them to pay to put the jet engine, as he likes to describe it, and piece of glass ‑‑ that I like to call a solar panel ‑‑ on your home. And then on their home. And then on the person's that lives next to you, and the one that lives next to them. And then everybody in the inner city, you know, all the homes in the hood. That's what this is really all about. And America, you need to wake up because this country is being transformed, and if you don't think ‑‑ it's way beyond socialism. It is way beyond socialism. It is into black nationalism.

VOICE: You've been listening to Spotlight on Science, exclusively heard on the Glenn Beck program, America's number one source for science and science‑related items.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
