Glenn Beck: Piven Video



Cloward and Piven - 'It is ok to use violence as long as it is a BIG part of your strategy'

GLENN: All right. Frances Fox Piven, she is she's a looker, she's a thinker. Why do you what?

PAT: What? I don't know what the looker part had to do with it.

GLENN: You were laughing. She is.

PAT: No, you're right. She does look like something.

GLENN: You got Fox in your name.

PAT: You must be.

GLENN: You must be a looker. The video of Frances Fox Piven at TheBlaze.com and she's having this is an intellectual discussion about violence. Now remember, this is the Cloward and Piven person: Collapse the system into a new system. And so she's kind of, I believe, the architect of, "Hey, let's spend ourselves into oblivion and get as many people on welfare and everything else as we can because the system won't be able to handle it." But she goes on here to talk a little bit about the use of violence.

PIVEN: I have, uh, uh, considerable respect for, uh, nonviolence.

GLENN: Okay, stop. Is that the most calculated answer you've ever heard just there?

PAT: I have a, I'm going to call it, uh

GLENN: How could I put this so...

PAT: Considerable, uh, not revulsion. What's the word I'm looking for? Uh, respect.

GLENN: Respect for nonviolence.

PAT: For nonviolence.

GLENN: Well, that's big of you.

PAT: Good. Wow.

STU: Well, she doesn't entirely detest nonviolence and that's fantastic.

PAT: She's not repulsed by it. So that's a good start.

GLENN: Come on, back to the Fox.

PIVEN: Treat it as inevitably necessary rule. The reason I have respect for

PAT: But she doesn't view it as an inevitably necessary tool, okay?

GLENN: Rule. Nonviolence.

PAT: But nonviolence is not necessary.

GLENN: Not necessary.

PAT: Okay?

GLENN: Got it.

PIVEN: Nonviolence is that I think that it helps protect the protestors. So look, it's partly a problem of on the strategy and propaganda. You know, it's a violent country. It's a violent government. It's killing people. And they're going to call us violent if we break a window. But they will do that. So probably unless you have good reason for breaking the window, probably you shouldn't do that. Unless it's, you know, a big part of your strategy.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. So you've got to

PAT: That makes sense.

GLENN: Unless it's a big part of your strategy.

STU: You don't want to do it willy nulle, a little bit here and there.

PAT: You probably don't want to crack anybody's skull, unless it's part of a bigger skull cracking thing.

STU: Right. The skull cracking is the main part of your philosophy.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: These are the kind of people that Andy Stern adores, that there are people in the White House. They adore this person. They listen to this person. They think that she is a great thinker. Do you see? Do you see I'm not going what? Please listen to this program with your heart. Not just your ears but your heart. There are many things that I believe that I shall never say but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. I will also not say those things that will reveal our strategy. I think anybody with half a brain knows the strategy. And the strategy is peace, love, harmony. Peace, man, peace. It is an actual fact that it works. Why? Because it's one of nature's principles, from nature's God. They use it more as a tactic. That's okay. Those who are using it as a tactic will lose. Those who are using it because it's true and it will reveal all those things that are untrue will win. But for anybody who works at George Soros' office, I'm sure that's you guys and definitely not us.

GLENN: She goes on to talk about, you know, got to do what you've got to do. Do you now? You know, Nancy Pelosi has heard this kind of talk before, and it scares her. I don't know if she should go to TheBlaze.com and see us.

STU: I love her argument on why she is okay with nonviolence, which is it protects the protestors. It's a good rhetorical piece to say to people, look, we were just being peaceful. It's not that she thinks that it's right to be peaceful. She just thinks that it's a good arguing point.

GLENN: There are those, there are look. If someone is coming at you, you have a right to protect yourself. But that's not use violence as a tactic. That is protecting yourself. And you have a right to self defense. But not to violence. Not to start something. That's not what you do.

PAT: Unless it's part of your overall strategy.

GLENN: Well, in the big part of the overall strategy.

PAT: Yeah. I mean, that goes without saying.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And it's perfectly acceptable, you know.

GLENN: I want to be very

STU: Yeah, uh huh, right.

GLENN: I have...

STU: Uh huh.

GLENN: I have some respect for those

PAT: Yeah?

STU: Some respect?

PAT: Who what?

GLENN: Don't want to

STU: Right.

PAT: Crack skulls?

GLENN: Crack skulls.

STU: That's a strong endorsement.

GLENN: Well hey, hey, hey, there's some I think it's a propaganda thing.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Primarily.

PAT: Mmm hmmm. But you think that

GLENN: If you want to crack skulls, as long as that's your primary.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I'm glad to see that Frances Fox Piven agrees with the overall strategy of groups like the KKK.

PAT: Well, that's a big strategy, though. Really huge.

GLENN: Overall, you know, the big part.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
