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.

 

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
