Glenn Beck: Progressives Are Targeting Your Kids





Watch

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

I feel like I'm becoming my grandfather: You kids today! You just don't get it. We used to sleep on razor-wire beds and eat nails for breakfast. And we liked it!

Maybe I'm getting old and grumpy, but kids are stupid. I mean, we've all been there. Come on, think of yourself when you were eighteen. You would have joined the Save Tibet club if you knew it would help score chicks.

You didn't care. You just went along with the group. Lenin had a phrase for people like these: useful idiots.

One of those idiots seems to be Meghan McCain. She's John McCain's like, totally awesome, like, daughter. And she was, like, so waxing poets about ideas or idealogians or U.S. Americans or something, on "The View." It was wicked awesome.

Here she is talking about the Tea Party movement:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MEGHAN MCCAIN: It's innate racism. And I think it's why young people are turned off by this movement. And I'm sorry revolutions start with young people… not with 65-year-old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word vote in English.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

What do those stupid 65-year-olds know, anyway?

Megan is kind of right: Revolutions do usually start with the young, but only because they are targeted and used by older radicals.

It's not just Meghan McCain. There is a pattern with progressives and the youth of America.

I want to show you something from BarackObama.com — warning: Blood may actually shoot directly out of your eyes:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It's extra important to advocate for your beliefs and your family will still love you even if they don't always agree with what you say.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

My family is a traditional Korean family and we're first generation.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Well, my family's not very political at all. It was always up to me and my brother explaining what was going on to my parents.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

That should frighten every parent in America.

Why in this video from BarackObama.com, do the children have to explain things to the adults? Well, because parents just don't get it. It's not enough for the kids to disagree on something and discuss it — oh no. Mom and dad are stupid. They believe in that crazy Constitution and stuff. They're so old school. But you — in all your 10th grade wisdom — you get it. And the president says you must educate your dopey parents:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Lots of my friends' parents probably aren't going to vote because they are all really busy. So my friends and I all work really hard to get them to vote and register.

So when my cousins and I have to talk to them about why we as the future generations really need Obama as the president.

We start out easily and just start saying, oh, watch the debate. And then we'll say, well, we really think that what Obama or Biden said about energy is really important because we need to start fixing that now before it will be too late.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It's more of like sitting down and having this, it almost feels like a parent-child conversation, except I'm the parent and they are the child.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

It's a parent-child relationship, except the parent is the child and the child is the parent. This is incredible.

The message the president sends to families should be one of healing, building the family up; one where the child honors the mother and father. Instead, we have the president of the United States encouraging children to have a sit-down with their stupid parents and teach them a thing or two about the world. And elect Barack Obama.

Is it just me? Am I the only one that thinks turning our kids against their parents to get elected is evil?

Oh, I can hear the liberal bloggers now: Oh, Glenn. This site has his name, but the president is busy. Robert Gibbs said he has nothing to do with it.

Uh-huh. Roll tape:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Today I'm pleased to announce the creation of Organizing for Amerca.

Volunteers, grassroots leaders and ordinary citizens will continue to drive our organization, helping us bring about the changes we proposed during the campaign.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

What responsible human being does this?

And it's not just him. Here's former Vice President Al Gore, talking to middle and high schoolers around the inauguration, when he thought the cameras were off:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE: There are some things about our world that you know, that older people don't know.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

See the pattern here? Those stupid older people — like mom and dad — they don't get it. Again, is it just me? Even if you agree with Al Gore, doesn't this bother you at all?

These are our children. They are being used. We are already crippling them by not teaching them the realities of life as they grow up. Instead, everyone gets a trophy. It doesn't matter if you aren't very good and never even win. It wasn't always that way. My papers were graded in red ink, not the politically correct purple that many have turned to now. I turned out fine — well, not entirely.

Being allowed to fail is a key aspect to growth. If we never experience failure growing up, how will we succeed? Oh wait, don't worry: Your kids will probably be too big to fail. But now, we don't want to hurt our kids' feelings by having winners and losers. We've got all these studies on purple pens and the stresses of our kids. We see these studies and delicately walk them through childhood, careful not to let little Johnny get a boo-boo.

People used to use common sense. Until 1838 when some Frenchy French man invented sociology. Then it became institutionalized. Did you know who one of the founding fathers of social sciences are? Surprise: Karl Marx!

Isn't learning from history fun? Especially the history that progressives erase. Hmm, erasing history — I wonder what impact that would have on society? We should ask a social scientist. Maybe we can find one at the home of the first American sociology education department at the University of Chicago. Hey, isn't that where the president used to teach about Saul Alinsky?

Fast forward to today: We have studies telling us to keep all kids equal.

Thomas Jefferson believed in a meritocracy: You were awarded positions and jobs based on merit — if you were qualified. If you deserved it. Not because you just showed up.

Progressives coddle kids. And when those kids are finally ready to enter the workforce, they aren't ready to compete, they're ready to receive.

The Wall Street Journal reported on how the trophy kids are entering the workforce: 85 percent of hiring managers said they have a stronger sense of entitlement than older workers. Without having worked a single minute as a professional, they enter the workforce arrogantly demanding higher pay, flexible work schedules, corner offices, promotions and more vacation time.

Does that sound like someone you would want to hire? Maybe it's just me and I'm becoming my grandfather, but if someone came for an interview at my company demanding those things, I'd say get the hell out of my office. In fact, I have. And maybe that's why my company is successful and why the Post Office sucks.

So not only are we crippling our children, we are using them. We have politicians and leaders going behind our backs and telling them: You're smarter! You know more than them! The world can be a better place; you just have to convince your stupid mom and dad!

There's a villain in this movie and America, it's you.

Progressives are pitting the youth of America against the old. Remember this from Time magazine? The angry 20-something who wrote he is: "Sick and tired of living in an abyss created by our elders' stupidity. Obama would be smart to focus on college towns. Step aside, grandma. We want health care and we want it now."

We want it now — you can hear the arrogance and the complete distain for the elderly. And you can hear it from Meghan McCain:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MCCAIN: And I'm sorry, revolutions start with young people… not with 65-year-old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word vote in English.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

This is from the daughter of a senator and a former presidential candidate — who is over 65 years old. How do you think her dad feels about that? Sounds like she thinks people like him are stupid.

So what's the big deal? Well, do you remember the Complete Lives system? It's from Rahm Emanuel's brother. He's a doctor who advises the White House. And he was showing what would happen if there were a shortage of medical supplies. Which, that would never happen under universal health care — no, no.

Anyway, there would have to be some tough decisions to make. Not enough medicine to go around. So who gets it? Is it that much of a stretch that in a time of crisis — when money and benefits are hard to come by — that someone like Meghan McCain would make the case that, like, you had your shot. You were 25 once. It's my turn for health care.

Remember, this isn't just some professor saying it. Now we have the president of the United States in full-fledged campaign mode and the Nobel Peace Prize-winning former vice president teaching that your children are superior to you.

This isn't going to work out so well.

Crazy? Remember the reaction of the college crowd when former Obama adviser Robert Reich brought up a similar subject? Here's how our selfless kids responded:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ROBERT REICH: We are going to have to, if you are very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you, maybe, going for another couple of months. It's too expensive. So, we're going to let you die.

(APPLAUSE)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Maybe I am just turning into my grandfather, maybe Iam the grumpy old man. But I think Meghan McCain is right: Revolutions are started by the youth. And I think some aging '60s radical hippies know that.

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

The foundation of the American way of life is freedom from tyranny, which can only exist in a nation that defends the rights, powers, and property of individuals and families. Over the past two centuries, the greatest threats to liberty have come from governments, both foreign and domestic. And from the beaches of Normandy to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Americans have repeatedly conquered the challenges placed before them by those seeking to extinguish or limit individual rights.

However, over the past few years, a new, potentially catastrophic danger has emerged, but not primarily from the halls of Congress or state capitols. This threat to freedom has largely emanated from the board rooms of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful corporations, large financial institutions, central banks, and international organizations such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum.

In an attempt to secure vast amounts of wealth and influence over society, corporate CEOs, bankers, and investors, working closely with key government officials, have launched a unified effort to impose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards on most of the industrialized global economy. ESG standards are also referred to as “sustainable investment” or “stakeholder capitalism.” According to a report by KPMG, thousands of companies, located in more than 50 countries, already have ESG systems in place, including 82 percent of large companies in the United States.

ESG standards are designed to create a “great reset of capitalism” and to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.” ESG supporters plan to enact these radical changes by using ESG schemes to alter how businesses and investments are evaluated, so that instead of focusing on the quality of goods and services, profits, and other traditional economic metrics, companies — including financial institutions — are evaluated largely on their commitment to social justice and environmental causes and then assigned scores so that companies can be compared, rewarded, or potentially punished.

Supporters of the movement for a Great Reset also plan on using technology to limit free speech and privacy rights, and they support creating vast new government programs that are designed to transform the Western economy via the Green New Deal, European Green Deal, a federal jobs guarantee, and basic income programs.

Together, the proposals that make up the Great Reset represent the most serious threat to freedom in the West since the fall of the Soviet Union and perhaps since World War II. But there is hope. We can stop the Great Reset, but only if we act quickly and with great conviction.

Below are 11 steps you can take to push back against the Great Reset. These steps represent a powerful bottom-up, grassroots approach to the Great Reset’s top-down plan to remake the world. Although many of these steps won’t be easy for everyone to take, they are essential for ensuring that our children and grandchildren will grow up in a world that protects the rights of individuals and empowers families, rather than wealthy special interests, financial institutions, and large corporations.

1. Live Not by Lies: The time for remaining quiet is over. When you hear or see something that you know to be false, speak up. Be kind, generous, and compassionate, but do not, under any circumstances, allow lies to infect your life. Further, do not support organizations, publications, politicians, schools, or any other institutions that regularly promote false claims.

2. Buy Local: The reason the Great Reset is so powerful is because so many of us have become totally dependent on large multinational corporations. They can be easily manipulated in a way that small, local businesses cannot. Learn to buy local, whenever possible, even if it means spending more money on your purchases. Yes, big corporations offer conveniences and low prices that many small businesses can’t compete with, but those benefits come with a great cost: your freedom.

3. Bank Local: Big financial institutions and banks are driving much of the Great Reset movement. They have started to use their incredible wealth and power to alter society by financing only those businesses who agree to the terms of the Great Reset. This problem is going to get worse, so it’s important to find local banks and credit unions you can trust and who refuse to utilize ESG scores and other discriminatory schemes.

4. Support Local Farms: If you live in an area that has local farms and farmer’s markets, consider buying as many of your groceries as possible from farmers. In the future, food production and distribution are going to change dramatically. It’s important that you support local farmers and build relationships with individuals who can provide you with the goods you need in a time of crisis. One of our main goals must be to make local communities as self-sufficient as possible, and that cannot happen unless we support local farms.

5. Be Vocal: After starting to shop and bank locally, be sure to tell big financial institutions and corporations why they have lost your business. They need to know that their decisions have serious consequences.

6. Run for Local Government: Local and state governments will soon be our most important defense against the Great Reset. Consider running for your local school board, zoning board, or even for a state legislative office. If you don’t feel qualified for these positions, find someone who shares your values and help them run for office. If we don’t have control of our local governments, we won’t be able to halt the Great Reset.

7. Demand That Your State Pass Laws Against ESG Scores: In America, states have a tremendous amount of power to slow the Great Reset and protect their citizens from abuses by large corporations, banks, and international institutions. They can do this by passing laws that make the use of ESG metrics and other, similar systems by financial institutions illegal, when used as a precondition for banking services, financing, investment, etc. ESG scores are, by definition, discriminatory and should be made illegal by state lawmakers who care about protecting their citizens’ rights.

8. Make Responsible Spending a Key Issue for Politicians: In recent years, politicians on the ideological left and right have totally abandoned responsible fiscal policy in favor of vast money printing and loose monetary policies. The many trillions of dollars that have been “printed” in recent years put our economy at risk and are being used to fuel the Great Reset. Without these trillions of dollars of printed money, it would be exceptionally difficult for governments and financial institutions to buy off corporations.

9. Organize Anti-Great Reset Groups: No matter where you live, there are Americans in your community who do not support the Great Reset — Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike. Find like-minded neighbors and organize a local, peaceful resistance. Find people you can trust and agree to support one another when times get tough. Now, more than ever, we need to develop dependable communities.

10. Buy Property and Diversify: Property ownership is going to become increasingly more difficult in the months and years to come. It’s important that you work with a qualified financial adviser to help you figure out the best way to buy property and diversify your investments. Buying hard assets, including real estate and precious metals, could be a good way for you to protect against the Great Reset and a possible financial collapse. If you already own property, resist selling it to large corporations and financial institutions, whenever possible. (This is not financial advice, and I’m not a financial adviser. Talk to an expert you trust before taking action!)

11. Make the Great Reset a Litmus Test for Politicians: Before supporting politicians, find out if they know what the Great Reset is and what they plan to do to stop it. If they aren’t familiar with the Great Reset or don’t have a plan to halt it, then demand that they learn about the Great Reset and develop a proposal to prevent it. Political leaders who refuse to take the Great Reset seriously do not deserve your support. This is the key issue of our generation.
