Socialists to Tea Party: We'll crack open your heads

The Blaze: Militant Anti-Tea Party National Socialist Strategy Session Calling for Head-Cracking Revolution

GLENN: All right, I want to play some audio here from the, what is it the National Socialist forum?

PAT: Convention, strategy session on Saturday?

GLENN: It was on Saturday and Sunday. There was a big convention here in New York over this last weekend of, you know, communists and socialists and here's one of the breakout sessions. And you could attend. You could take video of it, and I don't know why nobody seems to care about this, especially since the head of the CP USA, Communist Party of America, has just come out and said that they are in bed with Richard Trumka and they have been working hand in hand for the Democrats with the AFL-CIO. Union members, are you for the not Democrats but the communists because your money that you're paying, if you're with the AFL-CIO, is going to help the communists and vice versa.

Now, I want you to listen to this audio and listen carefully to what they're saying. What they're doing here is exactly what was said, and we told you to read The Coming Insurrection. This is the beginning of "The Democrats mean nothing to us. They mean nothing to us. We'll destroy them in the end," when they already have. Listen to what they say about the Tea Party.

VOICE: In times of growth historically the Democrats were the party that wanted to at least mildly redistribute a little bit of wealth. They were willing to finance a few social programs, make a few concessions in the interest of preserving social peace and social stability. But now when they don't feel like that money is available for them to distribute, they don't do anything. And I think that, you know, we all want to raise people's consciousness but we also want to fight people, right? So I think it's like both things. And, you know, we want to, we want to fight people who are on the -- who have signed up on the other side of the barricade who are fighting us, we have to fight them. This is -- we're a militant organization when it comes to the fight against gay bigotry, the fights against racism and sexism. The labor movement has this old saying, and I don't know if you want to take it -- is if you can't open their minds, open their heads. Now, I don't --

PAT: Did you get that?

GLENN: Mmm-hmmm.

PAT: The old labor saying? If you can't open their minds, open their heads. So I guess you crack their skulls open.

VOICE: I don't know if we want to take it quite that far in all the issues. I think that, you know, we have to be fighters. If we're not fighters, we're not going to -- I'm serious. If we're not fighters, we're not going to recruit the people who are most affected by these. They are the ones who are going to fight. And especially you can point to the Tea Party, right? I mean, this was a Democratic Party platform during the elections was to whip everybody up into the fear of the Tea Party in order to go, you know, hold your tongue, hold your nose and vote Democratic because the Tea Party's just so awful. And obviously the Tea Party is awful. The Tea Party sometimes does look like a white supremacist mob and, you know, the logic of the Democrats which is sort of like, well, this mob is coming; are you really going to fight with us? At least we're against them. Vote for us. That's the logic that has a strong appeal or attempted appeal among the working class.

Nonetheless we went to that demonstration in full force --

GLENN: This is the One Nation now he's talking about.

VOICE: -- trying to organize buses from schools. We passed out antiwar, antiracist signs and literature and we brought very clear anticapitalist literature, flyers, newspapers that said the real answer to unemployment and war is socialism.

For the workers who came that day, they came to be a counterexample, a counterpoint, a counterbalance to Glenn Beck and the Tea Party racists who claim to speak for the country. So in those circumstances you have to be with them. You have to be with those people who want to fight back.

GLENN: Okay. Let me go over a few things that he said. First of all, he said, you know, the Democrats, the Democrats, so many people voted for the Democrats because they can at least redistribute a little bit of wealth. But now that we're out of money, they quit. They don't want to redistribute the wealth. This is why I told you starting, what, two years ago that Barack Obama was in trouble. I have been more blatant about it and told you lately that pray for our president and his safety. This is why it was so disturbing over the summer when Van Jones said bottom up, top down, inside out. When he talked about rise up and force this president to do what he knows must be done. I told you over the summer what that meant was get violence into the streets. Rise up. And the president will be able to take the measures that he must take, that he wants to take. This is why I said in 2004 when Michael Moore was in the presidential box for the Jim Kerry -- or John Kerry inauguration -- Jim Carrey, I would have voted for him. The John Kerry inauguration, or nomination.

PAT: Yeah, Democratic convention.

GLENN: Right. I said you are fools. Democrats, you are being used. You think you are using Michael Moore, but he is using you and they will eat you in the end. These are revolutionaries. They are socialists, Marxists, communists and revolutionaries. This is the last play of the Democrats. Nancy Pelosi, not leaving. The reason why she can pull this off is because there are no Blue Dogs anymore. What is being -- what is happening to the Republican Party that the press is reporting on is the American people are standing up and they are saying enough! Common sense! Stop spending! Stop all of this radicalism! Stop! And they are routing it out in their own party, in the Democratic Party. But the same thing is happening in the Democrats except it is not being covered. And that is the communists have taken over the Democratic Party. The progressives, the communists, the revolutionaries, the socialists. The Blue Dog Democrat doesn't exist anymore. The Democratic Party as you know it doesn't exist anymore. It is a revolutionary party. And the reason why Nancy Pelosi can stand there is because they're not going to piss anyone off. They are going to make peace with them. Because they got them elected. They are the ones that went out and organized. They are the ones that if you think Andy Stern misspoke when he said workers of the world unite, you are a fool. That's why our country is at stake if people don't wake up. The puppet master is George Soros. He is the money. He is the one cobbling all of these people together. He's the one that can go to revolutionaries and say, "Look, I want to give you a million dollars. I want to help you out. I am with you." He's the one. The guy who is running, was it Media Matters, was the guy running the Ruckus Society. The Ruckus Society is the G-20 black, all dressed in blacks riots guys. What are we -- how much more do you need? Ask your neighbors that: How much more do you need? He's the one making the Shadow Party, the coalition of forces, possible. Why do you think I put the Black Robe Brigade together? Why do you think? Because God's people must stand together. When you have a force that has been cobbled together with somebody who is practically the evil emperor from "Star Wars" and their playbook Rules For Radicals is dedicated to Lucifer, who do you think we're dealing with here?

Next, next he talks about we're fighters. We've got to fight. And he quotes the labor unions. Not a coincidence. The labor unions began in the era of Marxism and communism. They have been battling with that in their DNA since the beginning. It's no coincidence that Sweeney -- that you had an anticommunist rule and platform in the AFL-CIO and Sweeney took it out. What, four years ago? Why? Why would you take that out? Because that is what these organizations have become. Communist operatives.

Every day you work for a union. Every day you pay your dues. Every day you don't stand up against these thugs, you're empowering the communists. That sounds ridiculous for me to even say it. Empowering and paying for the communists? Who even thought they existed? They do. Think differently. They have been counting on living in the shadows. That's how they got this far. If you bury your head in the sand, if your neighbors don't wake up... he quotes the labor unions: If we can't open their minds, we'll open their heads. They mean it. Security has already been put up on the unemployment offices in Indiana, extra security. Judges now for Social Security are being threatened. SEIU is organizing the 99ers. Food prices, energy prices go up.

I had a guy tell me today, I said, I understand that my sources tell me that 20% -- hold onto yourself. 20% of this country a year from now will not be able to afford food. Did you ever think you'd hear those words in America? 20% of this country will not be able to afford food within a year. I don't know if that's true. God help us if it's not -- God help us if it is.

Eric Bolling was the -- Eric Bolling was the guy I was speaking to and he looked at me and he said, Glenn, 20%? 20%? That will be a blessing if it's only 20%. The communists and the revolutionaries are doing to the Democratic Party and they are way ahead, what the Tea Party has done to the Republican Party. Do you notice his language is exactly the same language of ABC and CNN and MSNBC and damn near everything that has come out of the New York Times? I would like to compare what the New York Times has written about how they're hateful, how they are racist, how they are dangerous, how they are violent about the Tea Party and then read the article about the communist revolutionaries here in Manhattan that are good sports! That smiles abound as they speak of revolution!

The things that have been foretold are coming. The things that I have told you are coming. What you must not lose sight of is who you are and who we are. In time, to paraphrase Martin Luther King, in time we will not remember the words of our enemies, but I believe it will be hard to forget the silence of our friends.


 

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.

The Hong Kong protesters flocking to the streets in opposition to the Chinese government have a new symbol to display their defiance: the Stars and Stripes. Upset over the looming threat to their freedom, the American flag symbolizes everything they cherish and are fighting to preserve.

But it seems our president isn't returning the love.

Trump recently doubled down on the United States' indifference to the conflict, after initially commenting that whatever happens is between Hong Kong and China alone. But he's wrong — what happens is crucial in spreading the liberal values that America wants to accompany us on the world stage. After all, "America First" doesn't mean merely focusing on our own domestic problems. It means supporting liberal democracy everywhere.

The protests have been raging on the streets since April, when the government of Hong Kong proposed an extradition bill that would have allowed them to send accused criminals to be tried in mainland China. Of course, when dealing with a communist regime, that's a terrifying prospect — and one that threatens the judicial independence of the city. Thankfully, the protesters succeeded in getting Hong Kong's leaders to suspend the bill from consideration. But everyone knew that the bill was a blatant attempt by the Chinese government to encroach on Hong Kong's autonomy. And now Hong Kong's people are demanding full-on democratic reforms to halt any similar moves in the future.

After a generation under the "one country, two systems" policy, the people of Hong Kong are accustomed to much greater political and economic freedom relative to the rest of China. For the protesters, it's about more than a single bill. Resisting Xi Jinping and the Communist Party means the survival of a liberal democracy within distance of China's totalitarian grasp — a goal that should be shared by the United States. Instead, President Trump has retreated to his administration's flawed "America First" mindset.

This is an ideal opportunity for the United States to assert our strength by supporting democratic values abroad. In his inaugural address, Trump said he wanted "friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world" while "understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their interests first." But at what point is respecting sovereignty enabling dictatorships? American interests are shaped by the principles of our founding: political freedom, free markets, and human rights. Conversely, the interests of China's Communist Party are the exact opposite. When these values come into conflict, as they have in Hong Kong, it's our responsibility to take a stand for freedom — even if those who need it aren't within our country's borders.

Of course, that's not a call for military action. Putting pressure on Hong Kong is a matter of rhetoric and positioning — vital tenets of effective diplomacy. When it comes to heavy-handed world powers, it's an approach that can really work. When the Solidarity movement began organizing against communism in Poland, President Reagan openly condemned the Soviet military's imposition of martial law. His administration's support for the pro-democracy movement helped the Polish people gain liberal reforms from the Soviet regime. Similarly, President Trump doesn't need to be overly cautious about retribution from Xi Jinping and the Chinese government. Open, strong support for democracy in Hong Kong not only advances America's governing principles, but also weakens China's brand of authoritarianism.

After creating a commission to study the role of human rights in U.S. foreign policy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote last month that the principles of our Constitution are central "not only to Americans," but to the rest of the world. He was right — putting "America First" means being the first advocate for freedom across the globe. Nothing shows the strength of our country more than when, in crucial moments of their own history, other nations find inspiration in our flag.

Let's join the people of Hong Kong in their defiance of tyranny.
