Glenn Beck: Extreme left rally to 'save' education

Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government

by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Officials warn against violence. Rallies yesterday, a national day of protest against education funding cuts were generally peaceful. Some of them were not. People carrying signs and chanting, give my education back, from pre K to Ph.D., let me go to school. You can go to school. Go to school all you want. I never went to school. I'm okay. I did all right. Pat?

PAT: Hmmm?

GLENN: Did you go to school?

PAT: No. High school.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. Hey, Stu, did you go to college? Which college did you go to?

STU: I went to nowhere university.

GLENN: Yeah, nowhere university.

PAT: Is that nowhere state university?

STU: It is the state college.

PAT: I thought so.

GLENN: How are you doing?

STU: Wonderful because of my college education.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Singularly because

GLENN: How are you doing, Pat?

PAT: You know, I'm okay.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I probably make a little over minimum wage, you know.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Somewhat over that.

GLENN: I still, I

PAT: Are you making over minimum wage? Barely?

GLENN: I'm barely.

PAT: Barely.

GLENN: Barely scraping through, just barely making it.

PAT: Well, I mean, surely you were born then with a silver spoon in your mouth, uh huh. Handed, everything handed to you.

GLENN: I never once, I couldn't afford to go to more than one semester of college. Never once.

PAT: What? What about your rich baker father? He didn't put you

GLENN: No, he didn't put me through.

PAT: Ivy League?


PAT: Come on.

GLENN: At 30 I went, but I never once said, I deserve this. I never once left the campus and thought, I ain't gonna go how come they're going? I want to take it from them! Never once. Never once. I educated myself.

Here's another thing that I'd like Nancy Pelosi to comment on. They were protesting at the school the rate hikes. They surrounded a car, smashed out a car windshield with someone in the car, but they only did it with a metal pipe.

PAT: Oh, so they did it safely then.

GLENN: Oh, sure, sure, sure. I'm sure they said, hey, can you put on these safety goggles for the person inside.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: May I ask you, how many tea partygoers have you seen covered in the news carrying metal pipes to the tea party protests?

PAT: If they did, I'm pretty sure MSNBC would have covered that and we would have seen that about 9,000 times.

GLENN: Metal pipes. I don't bring metal pipes to anything. I mean, maybe if I'm going to a plumber's convention or I believe I may have brought a metal pipe to a Home Depot on a Saturday. But just to see if they have, you know, something that fits this.

Day of Action yesterday, a Day of Action is what it was called. And they're talking about giving the things that they've been promised. There were rallies all over the country. In New York City, Austin, Baton Rouge, Seattle, California, Wisconsin, and they say this is just the tip of the iceberg. Who's got the power? We've got the power. They were chanting money for jobs and education, not for war and incarceration. That sounds like Van Jones, doesn't it?

PAT: It's catchy, too.

GLENN: We haven't even looked at the people who are the foreign supporters of this. Give me a list of some of the foreign supporters of this. Can you do that?

PAT: Yeah. Just bring it up here again. It's the International League of Peoples Struggle Youth, Philippines, the League of Filipino Students, the National Union of Students of the Philippines. Like this one: The Socialist Student Front in Bangladesh. Solidarity Lithuanian Students, Vilnius, Lithuania, Student Christian Movement of the Philippines? They're involved. The Teachers Unity Forum in Kerala, India. I mean, why do these people, these are all

GLENN: Workers of the world unite.

PAT: Workers of the world types.

GLENN: Workers of the world unite.

All right. Your phone call is just a second away. The number is 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. And don't forget that we're doing an hour on indoctrination tonight at 5:00. I think that we are you know, Pat and I were talking about it before we went on the air today. I think we have a real problem. If healthcare passes, we're in real trouble. We're in real trouble. If healthcare doesn't pass, I have a feeling we're in for violence because the left, the unions, and everybody else that has been promised this healthcare, we worked for this. If they don't get it, they are not going to be happy. And isn't it interesting that all of these groups are saying organize, organize for education, organize for education. Isn't it weird that these communist groups, the same slogan as the president: Organize for America. What's with the organizing lately?


Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
