Glenn Beck: Environmental extremism

GLENN: Now, I want to -- I want to show you something else that is on The Blaze, a follow-up story that they did on the other story that was there yesterday, the video again from England. This is from a group called 10/10 and it is a group that is associated with a group here in America that was at the 10-2-10 rally over the weekend endorsed by the President, endorsed by the democratic party, and they're endorsing the democratic party and the President. This is a radical environmental group that played this ad that you can see still today at theblaze.com and I want you to send the story along with it, the graphic climate ad under fire. You'll see the ad and then one of the best hires we have made in a long time is Meredith Jessup. She is a writer for The Blaze and she's great. And she wrote a story Backlash: Environmental activists are working to distance themselves from a violent advocacy video that hit the Internet last week depicting the gruesome murder of climate change skeptics. The four-minute video was produced by a London-based group called 10/10. It was removed almost immediately after it debuted; however, bloggers and news media have replayed the video, sparking critical backlash all-around the world. 10/10 claims the film was intended to be come dishes but the response has been anything but funny. I was so proud of my daughter. She's in college and she's at a very liberal university and she's -- last night she came over to the house and I showed her these two and I watched her carefully because I thought, Oh, please, please don't think this is funny. Her mouth just fell open and she said, Who in their right mind would think this is good? And I said, I don't know. I said, They are now saying that it was just for comedic purposes. She said, That's not comedic in any way, shape, or form. I said, Well, I think it's interesting that they also said, they also said that they had to do this because there's only four years left before it's too late to reverse anything.

I want to get back to that here in a second, but Meredith writes at theblaze.com, but, what have we learned? The most repeat case of environmental extremism is similar to an anonymous article posted last year on a popular left-leaning political site. In June 2009, an article posted to Talking Points Memo was scrapped after objections to its message. Quote, at what point do we jail or execute global warming deniers? Additionally, as Climate Depot's Mark Morano points out, The execute skeptics message is not new. NASA's James Hanson has called for the trial of climate skeptics in 2008 or high crimes against humanity. Environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., lashed out in 2007 declaring, quote, This is treason and we need to start treating them as traitors, end quote. In 2009 RFK, Jr., also called coal companies criminal enterprises and declared that all CEOs should be in jail for all eternity. In June 2009, former Clinton administration official Joe Rohn, defended a comment on his climate progress website warming skeptics, quote, would be strangled in their beds. An entire generation will soon be ready to strangle you and your kind while you sleep in your beds, end quote. He defended it by calling it not a threat but a prediction. In 2006 eco magazine Grist called for Nuremberg style trials for all skeptics. In 2008 Canadian environmental David Suzuki called for government letters -- called government leaders skeptical of global warming to be thrown into jail. In 2007 the Weather Channel's climate expert called for withholding certification of all skeptical meteorologists. In 2008 a report found that climate blasphemy is replacing traditional religious blasphemy. In addition, July 2007 Senate report detailed how skeptical scientists have faced threats and intimidation. In 2007, EPA chief produced to probe e-mail threatening to destroy clear of climate skeptics, decenters, and warming fears have been called climate criminals who are committing terracide, the killing of the planet. In addition, 2008 Climate Depot was banned in Louisiana. State officials sought to shut down climate skeptic's testimony at a hearing. Further, the Hollywood star let lending her voice to the 10-10 campaign, former EKGs are X filer Gillian Anderson has been in the spotlight before, warning of certain dangers facing the world. In '99, Anderson said she had been a lot of research and she was sure Y2K was going to break everything, but saw silver lining in a world without computers.

I think this is what it's about. I think it's right. This is an opportunity for us to get back to basics in a sense and for us to unite as communities and help each other so that eventually, if there is a devastating effect, that at least we can join together with people around us instead of, you know, acting out of fear and robbing our neighbors for food or money or whatever there is because there's nothing around.

Let me go back to the 10-10 statement that there's only four years left before you can stop the damage. It's irreversible. They say they had to blow up children on this ad because there's only four years left. Well, what do you say we go another four years and we do nothing? What will they be willing to do then? Will they be willing to do as John Holdren, our science czar advocated and maybe put sterilants in the drinking water?

Find this story, this article, at theblaze.com. It has all of the videos. It has all of this information. Backlash: Traffic Climate Ad Under Fire. Make sure that your friends see it. We are headed for a train wreck. Yesterday on the TV show, we showed you some people at the 10-2-10 rally that we spoke, a guy that said, Look, war and killing in the capitalist class is justified. Oh. But the Tea Partiers are the violent ones. I've seen this sort of rhetoric before in 1917 in Russia, 1939 in Germany, and over and over and over again.

 

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."
