Glenn Beck: What's Complicated About Tea Party Movement?




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

Why is it that no one in the fringe media can get the tea parties right?

Is it really that tough to figure out why so many people are willing to take precious time out of their busy lives to make their voices heard?

Is it really that complex?

Is it really so difficult to comprehend that people become concerned when their president sets out a mission to "fundamentally transform" the country?

And is it hard to believe so many citizens would recoil at the president's use of the high-pressure tactic of "Act Now!" and respond by saying: "Wait, wait, wait — can you slow down and explain that one a little bit more please?"

Do the people in the media not see their children's future and say, "I don't know how there is a country left for my children, because of all the spending?" Do they not look at the numbers in their own news reports and say, "Wait, that doesn't add up"?

Is it impossible for the media to believe that even those who voted for Obama and want some of the things he talked about, have realized maybe we can't afford all of this right now?

Is there no one that can understand that?

Is there no one in the media who reported on the cries of "Halliburton!" over and over again, that sees ACORN and SEIU and the Apollo Alliance and how president is using them?

THEN-ILLINOIS STATE SENATOR BARACK OBAMA: The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth… the tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to pull together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change.

Do they not see that:

— On the "czars:" It's not a political witch hunt. Americans are just not comfortable with radicals having unchecked authority.

— On health care: If Americans are promised an open and honest debate before overhauling the system — when that promise isn't kept, they ask questions.

— On bailouts and government spending: Americans want to see the government live and play by the same rules they do. Bad investment? Live with the consequences. If you don't have the money, don't spend it.

Can they not see that point of view?

I believe they can see it and they do get it, but they are part of the problem. I'm trying to bring you the truth and I'm trying to understand the world we live in.

And here is some of the reality we face:

— When a major health care company informs its customers of its concerns about health care legislation, they are investigated and threatened with legal action and told by the government to be quiet.

— When regular people oppose government run health care and let their voices be heard at town halls and tea parties, they are labeled "angry mobs" and "teabaggers" and domestic terrorists and gun-toting radicals. And as more people stand up, they will only continue to paint you into the bad guy.

Here's I think the most disturbing thing yet: While they are doing that, they've used the National Endowment for the Arts to make propaganda — we have the audio of the call coming from the White House.

And on top of that, they are now indoctrinating our children. We showed you a video this week — "The Story of Stuff":

NARRATOR: Well, let's start with the government. Now my friends tell me I should use a tank to symbolize the government and that's true in many countries and increasingly in our own — after all more than 50 percent of our federal tax money is now going to the military. But I'm using a person to symbolize the government because I hold true to the vision and values that governments should be of the people, by the people, for the people.

Telling our children that America is a bad place? That movie's paid for by the Tides Foundation and comes out of Berkeley, California, and it's all over our schools.

And then we also have school kids singing a song about Barack Hussein Obama:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CHILDREN SINGING: Mm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand


To make this country strong again


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today


Equal work means equal pay


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand


To make sure everyone gets a chance


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white


All are equal in his sight


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We're all equal in his sight — as in Barack Obama's sight! And they wonder why people are in the streets?

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.
