Glenn Beck: Meet the New Radicals





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

Last week I showed you the left's playbook, the manifesto from the Weather Underground. These guys exemplified what it means to be a '60s radical: They'd do whatever it took to overthrow America and — in their words — "institute communism and a dictator."

And they really believed the ends justified the means. They bombed the home of the judge in a Black Panther trial with "kill the pigs" written in graffiti. They bombed the New York City Police Department headquarters. They conducted sniper attacks on Cambridge Police headquarters and robbed a Brinks armored car, killing two cops in the process.

I could go on and on.

Back then, most of these radicals were part of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), now they occupy positions of power. Wade Radthke, former SDS member, founded ACORN and SEIU. Andy Stern, another SDS member and former president of SEIU and is on President Obama’s Fiscal Responsibility Commission. Jeff Jones, former SDS member, is now a member of the Apollo Alliance and helped write the stimulus bill. Then, of course, there is the president's "spiritual adviser," Jim Wallis, another former SDS member.

If you missed it, you should really go back and watch. The evidence is quite overwhelming. You’ll see this radical thought is commonplace with the powers in and around the current administration.

The only argument the left could resort to over the weekend was, Oh, that happened a long time ago. OK, but they never admitted to any turning points or any change in belief, which helps explain why in 2006, a group of students "worked with members of the old SDS" to re-launch the organization.

Hmm. I guess that Cass Sunstein would like to retract his assessment that he feels "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."

Hey Watchdogs, I need your help because this bothers me. Two years before the election of Barack Obama, all of these well-laid plans suddenly pop up? Where did the funding in 2006 for SDS come from? They claim that the new SDS has over 150 chapters at schools around the country, whose aim is to "build a radical multi-issue organization" and their rally cry is to "take back our schools, our communities, and our nation — and we are going to win, because millions of people are stronger than millions of dollars. This is the fight of our life!"

The fight of our life? Somewhere, Nancy Pelosi must be crying, because not only is this the violent rhetoric from the '60s, but it's coming straight from those who actually blew stuff up.

So, what is the "new" SDS — founded by the old SDS — up to currently?

Well, they were just in Arizona protesting the new immigration bill. The media will have you believe that these protesters are regular, everyday citizens who have just had enough with all the racism from Republicans and conservatives. But that doesn't seem to be the case. Radicals from the new SDS and SEIU were bussed in from out of state to protest. There were eventually 122 arrests.

You'd think the folks in Arizona would be the most upset, wouldn't you? After all, they're the ones whose kids will be scooped up while eating ice cream or when dad gets a parking ticket. But in Arizona, support for the law is upwards of 60 percent.

Did you see the picture on Drudge Report over the weekend of the protester running around waving the Mexican flag? Why would someone who just loves America so much, who just wants to live here because they love the good ole U.S. of A, be waving a Mexican flag? Unless in defiance. No, he's waving it because, as we showed you last week, with radicals it's always about "the oppressed."

The new SDS says "oppressed people are at the forefront of movements for liberation... we must be grounded in the work of combating systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, imperialism, heterosexism, transphobia, and the many other forms of oppression thoughtfully and strategically."

Here's a picture from this weekend of a protestor holding a Cuban flag with Che's face on it. Gosh, where have I seen that before? Oh, that's right — SDS in the 1960s.

Here's another picture from the protests: A guy with the Nazi symbol in the place where the stars in the American flag are. You'd think that Andy Stern could get them to stop with the swastikas, right? I remember the media constantly calling on the Tea Parties to rein in the crowd. What about this? I haven't heard anyone calling these radicals out.

That's the kind of thing that makes Fox News unique and gets us in trouble at the same time. We are telling you the full truth. And when someone has an agenda, they only want to hear some of the truth..

Here's an oldie but goodie: You remember the old Perry Mason? The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God? Remember that? Is there anyone out there who can say that now? Now it's the ends justify the means. Truth? Hey, as far as anyone knows they are good people.

Is that OK with you?

Once again you aren't getting the full truth from the media or just about anyone on what these Arizona immigration law protests are all about. No one will tell you that those who were arrested were new SDS radicals who were influenced by old SDS and current SEIU radicals.

If this were 1995, I'd dismiss these clowns as just that. But times have changed. This isn't an isolated group of people. The Weather Underground manifesto shows their hand: "We will only reach the high school kids who are in motion by being in the schoolyards, hangouts and on the streets on an everyday basis."

The new SDS is shouting "Arrest Arpaio." Hmm, sounds familiar. Oh yeah, from the 1960s: "We want to smash cops, and build a new life."

So we have the past and we have the present. Now, can we see the future? Yes, we can. But for that we go to Greece.

Remember the little book by the Invisible Committee of Revolutionaries? You're seeing it in Greece now, it's hitting the streets. They can't afford the entitlements and the unions don't want to let go. So they're burning cars and blowing stuff up, clashing with the police.

Most people in America don't realize what they are up against. This is not just a movement with big government tendencies. It's radical revolutionaries who believe so strongly that America is evil, that capitalism and the free market are evil, that they will stop at nothing to end the perceived "oppression."

If you want to see what this looks like when the radicals really gear up, look no further than Greece.

The Guardian is reporting on the rise of a group called the Sect of Revolutionaries. They've been described as "more murderous, dangerous, capable and nihilistic than ever before." They've now declared that "tourists should learn that Greece is no longer a safe haven of capitalism."


And they have promised to set up attacks on police, businessmen, prison guards, the "corrupt" media and, for the first time, tourists. They've also claimed responsibility in the murder of an investigative journalist, who was shot dead at his home in front of his pregnant wife.

The ends justify the means.

There are crazies on both sides of the aisle — left, right, up down and in the middle. But one side has an orchestrated history of terror and violence and it's starting to rear its ugly head again.

No one on TV has preached more that violence is not the answer than me. But when I do, the leftists say, Hmm, why would you have to say that unless your crazy listeners weren't one push away from a shooting spree? I say it for the same reason Martin Luther King said it. For the same reason the left said it with their MAP for social movements. It's a human condition when your back is against the wall, you want to push back. As soon as anyone does that, not only is it just plain wrong, but you also destroy the movement. You lose.

But I also say it because I've seen the record. SEIU has a history of violence against the tea parties: beating a black man, biting off a finger, physical intimidation.

SDS has a history of violence from the '60s with the Weather Underground. And the same SDS members have started a new SDS and on their first visible outing they have arrests while shouting at the "pigs."

I challenge SEIU to have their members sign a pledge of nonviolence and actually mean it. I'd have a hard time taking that seriously, since SDS and SEIU members believe in Saul Alinsky who taught that the ends justify the means.

The throwing of water bottles at cops in Arizona is just the tip of the iceberg. We've seen what these radical groups did in the past: They got violent. Now it’s the same radicals teaching our kids how to do the same.

Don't disregard the warning signs.

The Biden Admin EXPANDED abortion access because they DON'T believe in the Constitution

Joshua Lott / Stringer, JOSEPH PREZIOSO / Contributor | Getty Images

This month has already produced an extreme example of why we need a functional and more conservative Congress in order for America to have a chance at moving forward—because the Left does not believe in the Constitution.

Sure, if you confronted a Democrat in Congress, they would probably claim some sort of allegiance to the Constitution—but as a practical matter, they do not believe in it.

Instead, the Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch. Why? Because it has the furthest reach through all the various departments, and it can move the fastest—in short, because it’s the most dictatorial. It only takes a department head to write a new memo, or even better, the President to sign a new executive order to carry the force of law.

The Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch.

Do you recall any of the Left’s favorite Supreme Court decisions over the years—something like gay marriage for example—and how Republicans immediately tried to subvert it, using the executive branch to try to nullify the decision? Yeah, that never happened. But that is exactly what Democrats have done in recent weeks to expand abortion access.

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions. When the miraculous overturning of Roe v. Wade happened last summer, President Biden called it “a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court.”

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions.

Recently the FDA approved local pharmacies to issue abortion pills. For the first 20 years after these pills were developed, they were not treated like typical prescription drugs. They had to be dispensed in-person by a doctor. That in-person requirement is now gone.

Keep in mind that the Left’s go-to line is that abortion is always about the health and safety of women, yet a 2021 peer-reviewed study found that chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions. Between 2002 and 2015, the rate of abortion-related ER visits following use of the abortion pills increased by 507 percent.

Chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions.

And now the Biden administration is making these less-safe abortions much more accessible. Thanks to the FDA’s rule change, Walgreens and CVS have already agreed to dispense abortion pills in states where abortion is legal—effectively turning these stores into new abortion clinics.

As for states that have abortion bans, "Team Biden" announced a new way around those too. Three weeks ago, the Justice Department issued a legal opinion that the U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal. What’s their rationale? That the sender cannot know for sure whether the recipient will use the pills illegally or not. So it’s totally okay.

The U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal.

Georgetown Law professor Lawrence Gostin told the Washington Post that this Justice Department opinion is “a major expansion of abortion access in the United States.”

So, to recap—the Biden administration has used the FDA, the Justice Department, and the Post Office, which all fall under the executive branch, to provide an end-run around the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision.

Expanding abortion was easy—simple policy tweaks and declarations that carry the force of law without an ounce of input from actual lawmakers in Congress—all because it comes from the grotesque, bloated, apparently pro-death executive branch.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...
