Glenn Beck: Radicals Following European Playbook





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

We saw pictures this weekend of May Day protests, but has anyone asked: Who organized these rallies? Who put these marchers on the street so fast? We'll give you that answer in a second, but first I want to show you a book I read this weekend.

Last year we showed you a book, a communist handbook for France and Europe: "The Coming Insurrection." Put out by the Invisible Committee, it says that the time to take the system is now: Europe promised us a socialist communist utopia and they will never give it to us, so we will take it from them now. It urges people to get into the streets and be violent.

Last week, I showed you a book from Greece — same basic story — "We Are an Image From the Future."

These books were written by communist revolutionaries. They are violent. They are not anarchists, but they will use anarchy. They are working for a fundamental transformation of Europe.

On Saturday, the president said that he wants the media to stop making assertions and be rooted in fact. That's what we do.

So let's start with Europe. They are rioting in Greece's capitol because of cutbacks. In France, there are "boss-nappings," kidnapping the boss and holding him for ransom. Apparently, when companies lay people off, make cuts or the government tries to downsize, people protest — sometimes in violent ways.

Who are behind these protests in Europe? Many times, labor unions.

Do we have anything similar here in the U.S.?

Well, there was a rally last week on Wall Street. Who was behind it? Workers and union leaders from the AFL-CIO, trying to bring Main Street to Wall Street. Their slogan: "People Over Profits."

No assertions, just facts. And that is what it is in Europe and Greece: Unions cutting jobs in Greece, become more and more violent. Unions on Wall Street cutting jobs and rallying and getting more aggressive.

Now let's turn to the immigration rallies over the weekend. Everyone in mainstream media will tell you they were grassroots rallies: People who are just angry at racism. But take a closer look; who was behind these rallies?

• SEIU

• AFL-CIO

• Workers World Party

• Socialist Party USA

• The World Socialist Web Site

• Revolutionary Communists Party USA

So that's who is behind this: unions and revolutionaries.

We're told the Tea Parties are violent, but we know that couldn't be further from the truth. We have shown you union violence at Tea Parties. Now we've seen violence this weekend — violence in Germany and violence in Santa Cruz. They were on the street in Germany for the same reason that they were on the street here: It was May Day.

Wait, didn't we just see something like this in America lately with the Day of Action rallies where unions got together with communists to put people in the streets to protest cuts in education? (That sounds exactly like what has happened in Greece.) What groups were behind those rallies?

• Association of Raza Educators

• Movement for a Democratic Society

• SEIU 1021

• International Socialist Organization

Let me go back to Greece, where the violence got so bad the police where actually attacked with a firebomb. So far, we haven't seen that here, but protests on the Arizona immigration bill don't look very different: Cops being assaulted with bottles thrown at them.

The right is being demonized as violent and hateful right now, but the right doesn't call police officers "pigs" or initially doubt the police before having all the facts:

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I don't know, not having been there and seeing all the facts what role race played in this. But I think it's fair to say number one, any of us would be pretty angry and number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly —

(END VIDEO CLIP)

This has nothing to do with race. It comes from a bunch of people that want to fundamental transform something.

Last summer, I told you this was coming in Europe.

I also told you that you could see our future if you paid attention. Now the follow-up book comes out. Why is it, they can say it, blog about it, write books about it, announce it in advance, then do it — yet no one in the media cares to report it? And if you do, you are somehow the problem?

It is time for you to say enough.

Unions are using their members' good names and money to wreck havoc on our country. Is it a coincidence that John Sweeny repealed the language that banned Communist Party members and loyalists from leadership positions within the Federation and its unions?

The teachers union wanted to teach communism to our kids in California, but Governor Schwarzenegger, to his credit, stopped it. Here's a part of the bill: Under existing law, a public employee is required to answer, under oath, specified questions, including, but not limited to, knowing membership in an organization advocating the forceful or violent overthrow of the government of the United States or of any state. This bill would have deleted these provisions.

If you are a union member, you are no different than my grandfather, who was the shop steward at Boeing. Or my mother-in-law, who has been arrested marching with labor at a major university. I told her, any university that treats its employees as hers does while sitting on tax-free endowments of $20 billion, I would march with her. But common sense must rule.

There are reasons for a union and they usually involve companies that have gotten so powerful and in bed with Washington that they begin stomping on people and rights. However, the same is true with unions. The unions say they are standing up for the little guy — no, they aren't. The little guy doesn't get to go to the White House. These guys have the power. There is a profit motive and revolutionary motive — they need members in their rank and file.

The unions are in bed with Washington and special interests and they are not in your or this nation's best interest. They are following the playbook from Europe:

• Socialize the government

• Unionize the government jobs

• Over-promise your pensions; then over-spend

• Blame others for business/government cuts

• Protest all cuts and favor select taxes -- as long as it doesn't affect the unions

• Violence

This is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Call it Cloward and Piven, communism, cronyism or just a lack of foresight, backbone and common sense, but as this book outlines, this is a picture of our future unless we act now. Our unions must be exposed, its members recognize the patterns, see the financial reality, speak out and do the hard things, stand up.

We are not France. What makes us different? Our people. We have always been a people of faith — restore that. It is what gives us hope, we all understand that we all will fail at some point. But we can all get up again. No one is too big to fail.

There is no such thing as social justice —- it is equal justice. MLK didn't march for more rights, protected classes or cries of racism for those who equally and fairly enforce the laws. He didn't march and die so Big Labor and Washington insiders could line their pockets with wealth gained from enslaving a whole group of people to help cover the tracks of a collapsing pension fund scheme.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."
