Glenn Beck: Inside a Radical Manifesto





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

I just want to say that I, for one, am proud to be an American. I wanted to get that off my chest, because I sure haven't heard radical jingoism like that lately. Last I checked, America is the beacon of hope in the world. People aren't risking life and limb to swim through shark-infested waters or barren deserts to start a new life in France. They come here — to the land of opportunity, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

I don't hear much talk about the great promise of America. What I do hear a lot about how the police are acting stupidly in Massachusetts and they're about to be racist in Arizona. I hear about the mistakes America has made and I'm constantly reminded about her shortcomings. I hear about the greed and how violent the people that wave teabags are. I hear how stupid we are. How our system has failed. How we need to be fundamentally transformed.

Do you believe that? I sure don't. But our president and those around him do.

On Monday night, I showed you the Weatherman manifesto from 1969 and how they and other likeminded revolutionaries are now in very powerful positions. They hate America — hate it. But they've been washed clean. Regulatory "czar" Cass Sunstein brushed off criticism: "I feel very uncomfortable with their past, but neither of them is thought of as horrible types now. So far as most of us know, they are legitimate members of the community."

That's great that you aren't worried, Cass. They're not "thought of" as radicals now. But here's the worrisome part: The Weatherman manifesto notes that revolution must be clandestine. Kind of like Nancy Pelosi saying we'll have to pass the bill to find out what's in it. Read the bill? Why read the bill?

Let me ask you: If you smell smoke, don't you investigate to see if there's a fire? Do you know anyone that was a member of the Weathermen? I don't and I bet you don't either. But the president does; he's surrounded by them.

Now, I have to warn you: Incredibly annoying radical/hippie speak ahead. If you miss anything go to GlennBeck.com and read the manifesto.

OK, let's get into it.

The authors recognized the typical historical progression of revolution that usually takes two steps. The first step was to set up, in their words, a "dictatorship" of a "new democracy" — a key word — a compromise between the poor and working classes. Then, out of the "new democracy" develops socialism.

The steps: one, a united front against imperialism and for new democracy, and two, developing out of the new democratic stage, socialism.

But, the Weather Underground wanted a quick one-step move for revolution; a plan that proved too radical to be successful. The two-step approach, a more acceptable form of slow and soft revolution, is still in use.

The man that the administration initially put in charge of their economic revolution towards a green economy, Van Jones, described the two steps using more friendly terms-minimum goals and maximum goals:

VAN JONES, FORMER WHITE HOUSE GREEN JOBS "CZAR": I think that this green movement has to pursue those same steps and stages. Right now, we're saying we want to move from suicidal gray capitalism to some kind of eco-capitalism where at least we're not fast-tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Will it be enough? No, it won't be enough. We want to go beyond the system of exploitation and oppression altogether, but that's a process.

JONES: We're going to change the whole system. We're going to change the whole thing. We're not going to put a battery in a broken system.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

But what is that "next stage" after the fusion of the poor and working classes under the green banner that Jones has worked on? The Weather Underground was very specific: "When imperialism is defeated in the U.S., it will be replaced by socialism — nothing else."

The move towards socialism is not a secret. Let's not forget that Newsweek has declared "We're All Socialists Now." And the people have noticed as well: 55 percent of Americans today think Obama is socialist — and that comes from the hard right-wing source of James Carville's polling company.

Of course, the Weather Underground knew how difficult of a sell socialism would be to the American people. We're the most prosperous nation on Earth. Why change now? How do you successfully convince America that they need a revolution?

Their solution: "First by creating a pervasive politicization and second by relating everything to the most militant and advanced struggles going on so that they influence and set the pace for a lot more people."

Make everything political and create or relate it to a crisis. And, of course, this is a standard tactic of politicians today. Beat up America. Say it's worse than it really is. Equate the capitalist system and our challenges to the worst the world has to offer.

Have we seen that today?

SEN. RICHARD DURBIN, D – ILL.: This must have happened by Nazis, soviets in their gulags or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no consideration for human beings.

NEW YORK CITY MAYOR BLOOMBERG: Terrorists kill people. Weapons of mass destruction have the potential to kill an enormous numbers of people, Global warming in the long term has the potential to kill everybody.

ANDY STERN, FORMER SEIU PRESIDENT: America is not clearly going to be the dominant economic superpower in the long run.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

The radicals of the Weather Underground knew that they still had an uphill battle. Luckily, they also felt that they were smarter than everyone else and they could understand the masses and their petty motivations: "Much of this category gets some relative privileges — i.e. benefits — from imperialism, which constitute some material basis for being racist or pro-imperialist."

So people are their stupid or bigots. They're talking about you. You're just not enlightened. You can't see the correct path — so they try to avoid change and then you become racist and ignorant. Or, to put it another way:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: You go to a lot of small towns in Pennsylvania, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced it. And they've gone through the Clinton administration and Bush administration and each successful administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not. It's not surprising then they get bitter and they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people that aren't like them or anti-immigrant stuff or you know anti-trade sentiments.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

What the ignorant masses don't understand is while they're clinging to their silly traditions, the truth is that their wealth isn't really their wealth. In a truly progressive society their wealth belongs to the world.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
