Glenn Beck: Notice the similarities

GLENN: I'm reading the Constitution of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA. I mean, who hasn't done that?

PAT: Three times last week alone.

GLENN: I think I'm going to tweet this because this is truly amazing. If you look at it and you'll see how many things are right in line with I mean, listen to this. The world cries out today for radical fundamental change to emancipate humanity. We live on a planet where tens of millions of people died in the two world wars in the 20th century and other wars since. There were large swaths of humanity today continue to be caught up in brutal and destructive wars. We live in a world where millions die from preventable diseases and still more face hunger as a daily fact of life. We're locked inside a worldwide economic system that dispenses crumbs and extends privileges to the relatively small number while forcing billions to seek desperately for work that no more often than not numbs the mind, crushes the spirit, destroys the body. An economic system which has devastated and spoiled nature itself and now has put the future of human life into question. We walk through our days in a world where lives of countless children are ground up and destroyed, some as child laborers, even outright slaves. Others as victims of poverty and humility, humiliation. Their potential crush, their lives cut short. Everywhere women, one half of humanity still face the gauntlet of rape and abuse. People whose sexual orientation or identity is different from the dominant norms in society. This is particularly and acutely so where this is in some significant way conflicts with the prevailing patriarchal sexual relations. Tens of millions of people in this country face a life of grinding exploitation and bitter desperation. Many of them have been driven here from countries which have been plundered by U.S. capital only to find themselves dubbed illegal and forced into the shadows by Gestapo like persecution.

PAT: Holy cow. Wow.

GLENN: Especially black people, as well as other peoples of color and oppressed nationalities, great masses of people have been cast aside because they can no longer be profitably exploited. Instead of recognizing their humanity and unleashing their potential, this system has criminalized them. With one in nine young black men locked down in prison and with the black and Latino youth having to face harassment, brutality and the constant threat of death at the hands of the police whenever they walk out the door. Meanwhile, the apple pie racism of America festers and often boils over in old forms and new. On top of all that, this economic and social system forces everyone to look at and treat everyone as a potential competitor and antagonist, dog eat dog. "Look out for number one" are the true commandments of this society.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Those who try to make things better within the confines of this system find their efforts constantly frustrated, unable to get at the underlying problems. As a result, this alienation, this despair runs rampant and people feel as their lives are empty and meaningless. And for relief, either the mindless chase after even more commodities or the false fantasies of the consolation of religion.

PAT: Oh, boy.

GLENN: But the cruelest of all is the fact

PAT: Don't say it.

GLENN: that it doesn't have to be this way.

PAT: Oh, boy. Communism? Is that the answer?

GLENN: Well, communism, yeah, it's right, I mean, through the labor of vast numbers of people that these productive forces own and controlled by a handful of capitalist imperialist class, the imperialist private appropriation of socially produced wealth is backed up by law, by custom.

PAT: The bourgeoisie, if you will.

GLENN: By the armed forces of America.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: All these imperialists care about and all they can care about given the rules of their capitalist system as to the endless drive to accumulate profit and more profit.

PAT: Said it over and over again.

GLENN: The violent expansion and defense of the empire built to ensure that accumulation.

PAT: When will it stop? When?

GLENN: Well, if you look at, communism can be achieved only through revolution.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: So I'm just reading the highlights now.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: People are told to be realistic, to confine their aims at government reform.

PAT: Okay. But they shouldn't?

GLENN: But they are not going to be able to realize the true ideals of democracy, it won't work. Putting your hopes and efforts in that will only make it worse. It's a dead end.

PAT: And whenever I think of democracy, I always think communism. Don't you?

GLENN: I do.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So the new stage of communist revolution, it started in 1848, you know, but now it's been decades since they held any power in this country because we've been so concerned about labels.

PAT: Of course

GLENN: Good thing the labels are gone. If there is to be a revolution, there must be a revolutionary party.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: So there needs to be one party that says no exploitation or oppression.

PAT: Is that the Democrat Party?

GLENN: Hmmm?

PAT: Is that the Democrat Party? Did they make a recommendation here?

GLENN: Let me just say this. Let me just say this.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Making a revolution against the powerful and vicious enemy, it's what is going to have to happen to be able to have to create a whole new world without exploitation or oppression.

PAT: And again the powerful vicious enemy, that's rich people?

GLENN: Uh huh, uh huh, yeah.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: But that's what they are going to do, have a fundamental transformation, you know, to a world without exploitation or oppression.

PAT: Where have I heard that phrase before, fundamental transformation? Have I heard I mean, does that sound familiar to you?

GLENN: I put that in there.

PAT: Oh, did you?

GLENN: Yeah. The revolution requires leadership. It requires an organization with sweeping vision, scientific method to analyze reality and how to go about changing it and then serious discipline. An organization that can awaken and unleash the revolutionary potential of the masses of people, direct their outrage against a real enemy and loft their sights to the emancipation of all humanity. An organization that can chart the path through the extreme ups and downs, the dangerous twists and turns, the organization that is the revolutionary vanguard party. Only with an organization such as this can the masses rise to the historic challenges and win their emancipation. That's going to be

PAT: What a glorious day that will be, comrade.

GLENN: I think I'm going to tweet this today because I think you should read this because, wow, there's that's a I mean, it's amazing how many things I've seen before and heard.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Are for.

PAT: Are they actually calling for revolution in that? It kind of sounds like it from what you've read.

GLENN: Well, I think they mean a peaceful revolution.

PAT: Okay, good.

GLENN: They are not tea partiers. I don't think there are any communist tea partiers.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. And you should read the part about how the how you don't you must crush anyone that, you know, swerves out of the approved party line. You have to read that part. It's very good.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."
