TheBlaze: MSNBC Host Calls for Revolution: ‘Real Change…Perhaps Through Violence’

GLENN: I want to start with Dylan Ratigan. This is MSNBC. Now, just last night I tell ya, be very I want you to be very, very aware, just very aware of everything that is going on and know and I'll explain this in a George Soros sort of way here in a second. Know that it is your choice where we end up. It is your choice. But I have told you that the seasons are changing, and I have also told you that they need you to be violent.

What happens in the streets forces the president to do what he wants to do. George Soros and the left have tried to paint the Tea Party as dangerous. Now George Soros has made it a much tighter circle. Instead what he has said is Glenn Beck is going to incite violence and cause another Oklahoma City.

Yesterday we played the audio of the Democratic pollster that said that the president needs an Oklahoma City because then he'll connect to the American people and his poll numbers will go up. Wow, what a statement.

I also told you that I was disturbed that you had another MSNBC guy come out and say he's a socialist on television. He's not a liberal, he's not a progressive. Progressives piss him off. He's a socialist. And nobody seemed to pay attention. Is anyone paying attention to what Dylan Ratigan said, another host? I know Stu Stu's like, no, no. It's important. Because we're not talking about a large number of people that are involved in this. We are talking about a very small number of people. Yes, still bigger than the MSNBC audience but a very small number of people that is right revolutionaries. Audio now. Remember, tea parties are dangerous. Audio from MSNBC and a host on MSNBC.

RATIGAN: We are here with very disconcerting questions. Are things in our country so bad that it might actually be time for a revolution? The answer obviously is yes. The only question is how to do it. And our next guest, cartoonist and author Ted Rall targets the day to day absurdities of Washington through political cartoons printed in newspapers across the country but now he's tackling something for bigger, the need for real change and real action, perhaps even through violence, or at least the threat thereof. It's the subject of his new book, The Anti American

GLENN: Okay, stop. Well, I like to go to cartoonists, you know, for my deep political...

PAT: The left does, though. They do.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: They do that. They do that with, what's his name, Garry Trudeau. They do that with this guy, Ted Rall. They do that.

GLENN: So are things in our country so bad that it might actually be time for a revolution? The answer, he says, quoting, is obviously yes. The only question is how to do it.

Could you play the Bill Ayers' wife audio that came out last Friday. Here's the audio of her being introduced in or being interviewed by some Indian newspaper or television. Listen to what she says.

DOHRN: Being at the eye of sensationalism around the election campaign was very strange.

VOICE: Must have been also unpleasant.

DOHRN: You know, it's unpleasant because as you know, U.S. society has increasingly been polarized in the last three years very quickly really, not unlike Europe, I guess, in many ways. But a hard right emerging, an armed new hard right emerging with massive control of media and instant 24 hour news of its own. And so the ability to kind of feed, you know, season a sound bite sentence, palling around the terrorists, for example, and then repeat it endlessly is very strange and very odd. Give me a left. I have a right. I mean, you can almost feel Obama saying that, and he surely does have a right, and it's racist, it's armed, it's hostile, it's unspeakable. If it had been you know, if the left had a demonstration in Washington against Bush armed, armed, openly armed demonstration of black people in Washington demanding an end to this, you know, statist government, imagine.

GLENN: Never happen.

DOHRN: Imagine. There would have been a massive bloodbath, right? And so the idea that now it's flipped and you have white people armed demanding an end to this president is very crazy producing really. But very ominous.

GLENN: Now listen to this.

DOHRN: We're a little wrong about a lot of things, including the immediate possibility of revolution in the United States. But we wanted to be on that side and we felt really strongly that

GLENN: Okay. Stop. So here's what she said. Here's what she said. I first of all, the lie that is, you know, the right is dangerous and armed and we were apparently armed in Washington, D.C. You can't carry a gun in Washington, D.C. If that was true, anybody who's doing that should have been arrested. So I'd like to see her evidence there.

Next what she says and this is the important part: We were wrong about a lot of things in the 1960s. Remember, she's a Weather Underground terrorist. Wrong about a lot of things in the 1960s, but one of the things we were wrong about was that we could have an immediate revolution.

Now, this is the critical juncture that I've been talking to you about for about two years. I have said that the president himself is in danger. At this point this is the beginning of the point that I warned you on, and I warned the president on, and I warned the Democrats on. You have revolutionaries within your midst. You have co opted them. You think that you can just play nice with them and they'll go along with your little progressive change. No, no, not revolution. We'll do this the undercover, underhanded way and that way there's no bloodshed. And I've told you the minute people start to get cold feet, the minute why do you think Nancy Pelosi had a party last night? The minute anyone starts to have cold feet and back away and say, well, we're going to have to compromise, revolutionaries will not allow that to happen. Revolutionaries have never been inside the Oval Office before. They have never had access to power like this before. They are not going to relinquish it. They are not going to fade back into the background. Now is the time, they will say. "We tried it your way. Now the people will rise up. Revolution." That is what will happen.

In 1957 the Czech revolution, there was a very interesting thing that happened. There were the bad guys inside at the top levels and they orchestrated with the people on the street and they orchestrated riots and violence, and the average Czechoslovakian felt alone and they wanted the violence to stop, and they trusted the people in the government. Little did they know that the people at the top of the government were in with the rioters.

When Van Jones said over the summer that this is a historic moment because this is the moment that the president chose to be a progressive, he said. And I couldn't figure that out. When was he not a progressive? He didn't change anything. What happened? He said it was important. Now, listen. He's instructed his disciples: You've got to get out into the streets and you have to do what will force this president to do what he knows he has to and wants to. He said, bottom up, top down, and inside out. He repeated it: Bottom up, top down, and inside out. This is the Czech revolution. The bottom swells up, causes problems in the streets. It forces the top then to clamp down because people clamor to say, "Help us, protect us."

There's one other thing. I said last night, and I've told you this before: The Coming Insurrection is the blueprint. It is a book written by the Invisible Committee. It was banned in Europe. Some of the authors were arrested. It is a new book. I've been telling you about it for two years. In it, it says at some point we cannot remain in the shadows. But if the light is put on us too soon and I'm paraphrasing it will be us or them. We will either have to be prepared to move and to move quickly and destroy or we will be destroyed. We are exposing, in this week, we are exposing who they are and how it all works. And once you see behind the curtain, once you know who the bad guys are, who the good guys are, how this whole thing has been orchestrated, once you see all of that, you will no longer look up to the top and say, "Protect me" when there's trouble in the street. You will also know the worst thing you can do is to strike out.

Can I tell you something? Honestly I have been worried about getting hit by a cab today on the way to the studio. Not that anything's going to happen to me other than some cabdriver have you seen the cabdrivers? Some cabdriver just hits me down and kills me in the street. It's an accident. An accident. No one would believe it. And I fear that too many people, if I had a legitimate accident today, I fear too many people would say "Trigger point." They would need listen to Dylan Ratigan: Is it time for revolution here? Yes. They need a trigger point. I don't care what happens in the future, and I'm not just talking about me. I'm talking about you or anybody else. Know: It is exactly what they need. They need someone to come and quell the violence. And believe me, they will.


Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.
