Glenn Beck: Progressives MO -- intimidate & scare

The Overton Window, a thriller by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Dateline, Houston, Texas. An anonymous gift left on the front porch of a Houston home owned by an oil company executive exploded after being opened by a 62 year old woman. Neighbors of the victim told an ABC News affiliate in Houston that the bomb was disguised as a box of chocolates in a gift bag, left on the home's doorstep Thursday. Instead it contained what authorities described as a pipe bomb carrying a load of thumbtacks and nails. When she opened the package on Friday evening standing on her back porch around 6:30, it resulted in shrapnel embedding across the woman's face. She had nails and thumbtacks driven into her face. She is okay. The injuries are not life threatening. It is not immediately clear whether the house was targeted or if it was targeted because the home is owned by an oil company executive. They don't know. I guess it could have been a random —

PAT: Someone could have just hated the house, just didn't like the style of it and maybe they got something against Tudors or colonial homes.

GLENN: Maybe they are just randomly blowing people up.

STU: A lot of people are anti landscaping these days.

PAT: A lot of people do. I mean, if you have an awning, it just hacks people off and you might get a pipe bomb delivered to your house. That could be. Yeah, that could be.

GLENN: So you know, the anarchists and I mean, there have been — what was that guy's name? I want to say Kaczynski.

PAT: Ted Kaczynski, yeah.

GLENN: Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber, there have been random nut jobs that have done this. But in our country's history, there is also a history, during the Wilson administration, of communist anarchists. And I know that sounds like an oxymoron. How can you have control of a giant state and want anarchy? You want anarchy in the same way that president Ahmadinejad wants chaos because chaos leads to something. So in 1919, I don't remember how many — I'm pulling this off the top of my head, but several bombs, I think it may have been 20, it may have been 30 bombs, were sent all over the country. The first one landed in Seattle and I think it may have been the Seattle mayor that got it. Again you'll have to do your own homework on this. But it landed in Seattle and it didn't go off, which tipped them off that these things were going to politicians all over the country, and what happened was somebody got the addresses wrong and so they were sitting, all of them, in mail rooms all across the country because they reached out to all of the postal services and said, have you seen a package like this; don't deliver it. And they said, well, we've got a bunch of them here, but we couldn't read the address. And so they were all sitting there. And I think there were about 20 of them that were sent, and it was the same thing, and it was to intimidate and scare. Tie that together with what is happening in Arizona: Intimidate and scare. What did Andy Stern say? We know where you live. We know who you are. Intimidate and scare. The Black Panthers: We're coming to 8/28. We're going to stand up. We're going to show Glenn Beck what it is. Intimidate and scare. This is the tactic. This is the new phase that we're entering in. Intimidation. They tried to do it just with SEIU during the tea party movement. That wasn't enough. They also need, I believe, a race riot. They need the race riot. They need white people to lash out to black or to Hispanic. They have to have it. Because once that happens, once the Aryan Nation who every white person that is sane says the Aryan Nation is nuts and will stand with any color, white, black, yellow, purple against the Aryan Nation. And same with the Klan. But they will paint that. This, I believe the radicals who have control, who have already written a report in Missouri that it's the tea partygoers, it's the racists, it's all of these people that are the problems, nowhere do they mention ELF or ALF, the animal or environmental liberation front. Nowhere do they mention the Black Panthers, which the Southern Poverty Law Center says is a hate group. Of course, then again I think they say I'm a hate group, don't they?

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
