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?
