Netroots Nation Targets Beck





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

Netroots held a big progressive conference in Las Vegas over the weekend and you were a major topic. Again, when they mention me, they're really talking about you. Without you, I wouldn't merit a single thought from these people.

But first, let's start with former Democrat chairman Howard Dean, who was on with Chris Wallace yesterday. Listen to this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HOWARD DEAN, FORMER DNC CHAIRMAN: Let's just be blunt about this. I don't think Newt Gingrich is a racist and you're certainly not a racist, but I think Fox News did something that was absolutely racist.

CHRIS WALLACE, ANCHOR: The video had never played on the Fox News Channel before the White House fired her. It was on Andrew Breitbart, biggovernment.com, we're not responsible for them. I agree with you it was out of context...

(CROSSTALK)

DEAN: And it was about to go — and it was...

WALLACE: But it wasn't on Fox News, so maybe you shouldn't be using the racist phrase either.

DEAN: And it — and it — and it was about to go — and it was about to go on Glenn Beck, which is what the administration was afraid of.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The video was about to go on Glenn Beck? Are we in the "Minority Report" movie now? Does Howard Dean have a trio of albinos bathing in milk with electrodes attached to their heads showing him the future on computer screens? I'm surprised a squad of commandoes didn't bust into the studio last Monday to stop me from playing the video I was "about to" play.

Unfortunately, for them, I didn’t play it. And when I finally did approximately 26 hours after she was fired — the next night — I took Shirley Sherrod's side. Now Howard, that's kind of a pesky, inconvenient, little fact there.

But no one is letting the facts get in the way of their Tom Cruise, “Minority Report”, chicken little racist charges. Because the problem is that you have gotten under their skin to such a degree they can't get you out of their heads.

Here was James Rucker from Color of Change speaking at Netroots:

JAMES RUCKER, COLOR OF CHANGE CO-FOUNDER: Unfortunately, Glenn Beck is in my brain all the time. It's bad for your health — psychological health.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Gee, that's too bad, James. I haven't spent a single moment thinking about you and my business has never been more successful. We're having our best year of all time. But Rucker knows that we're exposing the progressive agenda to the light of day and he doesn't like it:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

RUCKER: No one knew what Tides was until Glenn Beck started — I mean people outside of our political world knew what Tides was until they were on Glenn Beck's blackboard.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Why would you want the American people to know about Tides? Aren't they helping people? Aren't they working for "social justice?" Isn't that what all of your progressive friends are working towards?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

RUCKER: One of the campaigns we ran last year, Color of Change, was basically going after Glenn Beck's advertisers where we thankfully stripped him of normal brands, companies you'd recognize. But the reality is — and we knew this — we weren't trying to — well, we were trying to, actually, we were trying to marginalize Beck. We didn't expect we would get him off the air. We wanted to make him untouchable to a certain degree.

Being on the other side of Beck it can be kind of a stressful thing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Gosh James, I'm sorry. I'm sure that barely being mentioned on my show is much more stressful than four advisers to the president of the United States running smear and boycott campaigns against you. I can't imagine how hard one or two mentions on my show has been for you.

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Reality has come undone and it's doing our country a disservice. The more time we spend on them, the more we become them. America deserves better than this. We are better than this. This is politics of the past without even the past, except without the real past.

As I said, the tape of Shirley Sherrod was not going to be on my show. When it was — 24 hours later — I supported her. Cries of racism without an event?

So what is the real issue here? Because it's not racism. The issue is choice.

We must choose. Do we choose those who create fear, limit choices, lie, cheat and steal? Do we stand with ACORN, communist revolutionaries, Black Panthers, union thugs or the troops, cops, your house of worship, small businessmen and women, moms and dads who fear that America's best days are behind her? Because the powerful forces of greed and corruption are blocking the road to individual freedom, individual faith, individual responsibility, inventiveness and volunteerism.

We have made this choice over and over again. In the 18th Century, we said no to a king that was in bed with special interests and didn't care about the people. In the 1850s, the most unlikely of heroes stood with people of faith to right the wrongs of the past. When both parties were corrupted, Abraham Lincoln created a new one, the Republican Party — a name that had meaning back then. They tried to make us choose again during Reconstruction and we almost failed again under Wilson and FDR. Each time they made us choose they weakened the system. In the 1960s they stole our grandparents' children and those who had the most and had done the least began to conspire on how to destroy our children's inheritance.

Here we stand at that epic choice: Do we let them finally conquer the American spirit or do we stand again and shake off the ever-forming chains? Reclaim our rightful place by picking up our God-given responsibilities to ensure that man continues his crawl from the swamp to the stars.

Stand, for you are man — and what is more, you are an American.

Let them cry racism. I ask you to stand and cry: freedom. All men, all races, all creeds: Freedom. Freedom from want, freedom of religion, of speech. Freedom from a monolithic and faceless bureaucracy that make your choice for you.

Many slave owners put a happy face on taking a man’s freedom away. But as Frederick Douglass understood, a kind and benevolent slave owner is still a slave owner. We solved this fundamental question a hundred years ago, but the evils of man have conspired to forge a new chain, one of help and handouts and health care, but a chain nonetheless.

This is your choice: Kiss the hand that feeds you or fight for your right to eat, sleep, work, worship as you wish. Man must speak while man can speak.

I have learned a lot in the last 12 months. We do not need to call people names, nor do we have to, their words are evidence enough. They cannot make the argument in the open for they know no man of any color would choose to be enslaved. I do not think those in power and those who seek even more power are racists, as I have come to understand that racism is too small of a word. I believe they will enslave any man — no matter the color, no matter the party.

In the end, if America chooses this new path, all knees shall bend and all heads will bow to a new earthly king.

This story that we are seeing unfold, is a story as old as man himself. To make this about me or the president, is to mock the point in history at which we find ourselves at. We are small and insignificant. The choice is monumental and universal.

And once again we are asked to choose. I believe that Americans will again draw the line between them and those who currently hold the keys that control the force of the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth behind them — those who would be our kings, those who would blaspheme our sacred American ideals while they cry racism.

Americans, stand in the fire of God's truth and once again cry freedom.

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."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
