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.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
