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.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
