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?

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
