Glenn Beck: 'Freedom' Flotilla? Not so much

GLENN: Okay, we were all bothered by the mosque that is being built at Ground Zero. Pat was ready to become a temporary progressive.

PAT: Oh, absolutely not.

GLENN: And just say, I'm going to find a law to stop it from being built.

PAT: Look, we're a nation of laws. Rule of law, my friend, rule of law.

GLENN: You know what I'm talking about. Right, right.


PAT: Rule of law.

GLENN: I said unless you have any kind of evidence, you don't do that.

PAT: You don't follow the law? Huh.

GLENN: Stop, stop. What are you turning into!

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: What are you turning into?

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: I'm sorry, I didn't know the Clintons were here.

PAT: When you ask about following the rule of law, nothing. Nothing.

GLENN: Nothing. It just depends on what the definition of "Is" is. It's the spirit as well as the letter of the law. Now I think we could probably join here and Pat, you and I could sing Kumbayah now. Ground Zero mosque imam is linked to this anti Israel flotilla. More specifically, he is part of the group that is funding another group to help organizing the flotilla. Let's see if you can make these connections. The imam behind a proposed mosque near Ground Zero is a prominent member of a group that helps sponsor the pro Palestinian activist who clashed violently with the Israeli commandos at sea. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a key figure in the Malaysian based Perdana Global Peace Organisation. That sounds good. It's got peace in the name. Perdana is the single biggest donor, $366,000,000, for the Free Gaza movement.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: They are the key organizer of the six ship flotilla that tried to break Israel's blockade of the Hamas run Gaza Strip.

PAT: So he's a key figure in this global peace organization.

GLENN: Perdana. Reuters is confirming now the Free Gaza movement whose supporters include William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn and that the biggest donation did indeed come from Perdana

Now, I suppose their argument would be, "Well, he's just part of a Global Peace Organisation." "They are only promising civilian resistance in nonviolent direct action." Uh huh. Except they are partnering with another charity, a Turkish charity with terrorist ties. Did he know that the Muslim brotherhood would also — see, you know, here's if — the enemy of my enemy is my friend? Here's where this all grows awry. No, he's not, no. The enemy's not your friend. He is most likely your enemy as well. Here's why I have said be careful, be careful. Tea parties, be careful who you get in bed with. Do they have any kind of values and principles? I was thinking about this driving in today. I heard the tea party endorsements of a few people, including the, is it the Republican that might win against Harry Reid or, you know, the tea party endorsed Republican may take it in Nevada?

PAT: I think the tea party endorsed may hurt the stronger Republican in the race and thus —

GLENN: I heard today that she may win. That's what I heard.

PAT: That the tea party person may win?

GLENN: That's what I heard on, I think it was on Fox. Maybe I misheard it.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Because I know I didn't hear that last week.

PAT: Yeah, a couple of days before. I haven't been following it that closely. But they were saying that the tea party person might hurt the Republican and thus Harry Reid might sneak through.

GLENN: So here is, here's what I'm — here's what I was thinking this morning: Well, it's great that the tea party is endorsing people and that's, you know, that's great that they have, you know, a power base, if you will. They are saying we may not win very much today but we will in two years because they are growing their structure, et cetera, et cetera. But what are their values and their principles? And that's why we put those in front for 9/12 project. You've got to have values and principles. What are they? These groups that are, you know, they are claiming that they are innocent, "No, we're just peace activists." Okay, hang on just a second. You're a peace activist and you're with the two founders of the Weather Underground who do not deny terrorism as a tactic. They wish they did more. They wish they did more because Saul Alinsky, the ends justify the means. Well, if you go down that road, you are going to be a terrorist. The ends don't justify the means.

So they are sitting here with known terrorists and yet they are claiming to be a peace organization. Then they get into bed with another terrorist organization. There are like four countries that say this IHH is a terrorist organization. Then you have the Muslim brotherhood. The Muslim brotherhood is the worst. Now, is this, is it possible that all of these people are just like, hey, I didn't know. Is it possible that this, what is it, Perdana Global Peace Organisation doesn't know when they are the major funder of this flotilla? That they've got terrorists on board? I mean, I find that hard to believe. And one of the major, what is it, board members, prominent member of the group is how he's described by Reuters now is the imam for the Ground Zero mosque. Okay, that's enough for me to say, hang on just a second; we need to look at your permits. With you not based on, because I don't want a mosque here. I want to know who you are. It is time for a real vetting of this group.

PAT: But they don't get one.

GLENN: I bet they don't, either. Well, they won't because the Department of Justice, they won't look.

PAT: Nope.

GLENN: Which brings you back to, why?

The question you have to answer is, is Barack Obama, A, is Barack Obama the president or is he a puppet? I've never believed in a puppet regime, never. I don't believe in the Star Chamber and the — you know, I believe in the Bilderbergers because they met this weekend. But I don't believe it's really that much of a stretch to figure out what they are talking about. You know, we don't have the records but, yeah? And, you don't have a record of a lot of things that are private. I don't think it's a stretch to figure out what they were talking about this weekend. They were talking about the destruction of the Euro, is America going to survive, what is the rest of the world going to look like, et cetera, et cetera. And if you listen to the people who are in that, if you listen to their words outside of that meeting, you know where they stand.

Here's — you don't need the Star Chamber, but when it comes to this president, you have to ask yourself, is he the guy. Or is it based in the Center For American Progress with George Soros? Is he the guy? That's the first question. Did he design all of this? Because I don't think so. I mean, we could show you the evidence that this stuff has been in the works since the early 1990s. He was selected before he was elected. And those are the words of Jeremiah Wright — or no, sorry, Louis Farrakhan. I think he might be — that may be the only thing I've ever heard from Louis Farrakhan that I may agree with. You could at least make the case.

The second question you have to believe — or you have to answer is which side — can you —

PAT: Sorry.

GLENN: Which side is he on? Is he a guy who believes like Van Jones or is he a guy who's more like Bill Clinton? They've cobbled together this coalition of radicals, of quite honestly Bill Ayers, terrorist. Jim Jones? Terrorist. They've cobbled together this coalition. Where does Barack Obama stand?

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
