Glenn Beck: Social unrest is on the way


TheBlaze:


Pitchforks? Dem Senator Uses Violent Metaphor in Tax Hike Fight

GLENN: I want to play I want to play some audio for you. We just told you

about the coming Latino revolt according to Luis Gutierrez. We just played

Ronald Reagan, Jr., the ends justify the means, bring a knife or a gun to fight

for social justice. You have to do what you have to do to fight for social

justice. Now let's play Cut 176, Claire McCaskill. Here's what she says if taxes

aren't raised on the wealthy.

McCASKILL: I'm trying to find out how anyone can keep a straight face and say

they are for deficit reduction while they insist on a permanent tax cut for the

wealthiest Americans, completely unpaid for. Now, they want to say this is class

warfare. Well, you know, in a way it is because we're fighting for the middle

class.

PAT: It's not your money. It's not your money, honey.

McCASKILL: We are fighting for the middle class. Frankly the middle class hasn't

had enough champions in America.

GLENN: We need labor unions.

McCASKILL: 70% of Americans don't itemize deductions. So that big old complex

tax code, it's been written for wealthy America.

GLENN: Yes, it has. Special exceptions.

McCASKILL: The one that I and then you get to the very, very top where a lot of

these people's income is all about dividends and capital gains and not even

ordinary income and they have all kinds of ways

PAT: Let's do a flat tax.

McCASKILL: that they can use the tax code to avoid paying tax.

GLENN: She sounds like she's for a flat tax.

PAT: Yeah, doesn't it?

GLENN: That sounds great. I'm for her 100% on this.

PAT: Yeah. And everybody pays the same rate.

GLENN: Yeah, including Charlie Rangel.

PAT: And here's the thing. When you make a million dollars and you pay the same

rate as somebody who makes $30,000, guess what. The millionaire pays more.

STU: Really? How does that happen? It seems like the same number. You said the

same percentage.

PAT: I know, I know. But 15% of a million is more than 15% of $30,000.

STU: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Wow, that's convenient.

PAT: It's complicated, but

GLENN: But the progressive income tax works so much better. I mean, I know the

former communists in Russia don't think so.

PAT: No.

GLENN: You know.

PAT: No.

GLENN: But it's so much better, isn't it?

PAT: Yeah. Well, apparently not.

GLENN: The progressive income tax.

PAT: Apparently not. And it's never progressive enough for these progressives.

GLENN: I know. So here she is.

McCASKILL: This is about leveling the playing field for what has always made our

country different than everyone else.

GLENN: We never level the playing field.

McCASKILL: That is a strong vibrant middle class.

GLENN: Yes, that's view.

McCASKILL: And I will tell you this.

PAT: Tell us.

GLENN: Tell me.

McCASKILL: If they think it's okay to raise taxes

GLENN: You hear her calculating?

McCASKILL: For the embattled middle class.

GLENN: She's editing right now.

McCASKILL: Because they're gonna pout.

GLENN: Edit.

McCASKILL: If we don't give more money to millionaires.

GLENN: Edit.

McCASKILL: It really is time for the people of America to take up pitchforks.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: You'll notice because I do this for a living. I do this I ad lib for a

living. Four hours a day on national television. Probably more than is there

anybody else? Is there anybody else that does more scrutinized four hours of

broadcast every day? I don't think so. I don't think so.

PAT: Probably not.

GLENN: And it's ad libbed. It's ad libbed. These are all my words. And so I know

and I can hear, because I know when I'm ad libbing and I'm saying something and

when I'm like, want to say something and then I... be... very... let me... time

to pick up the pitchforks. That's not what she wanted to say. She was editing.

She was thinking about, how's the best way? I've got to be very careful on this.

I have to be very careful on this. That's not what she wanted to say, pick up

the pitchforks. What did you want to say, Claire? Seriously? Shall we leave it

to Van Jones? Let me play Van Jones here from just a couple of days ago, the

recipe for a battleground by Van Jones, a, quote, nightmare scenario.

(Audio plays)

VAN JONES: A potential nightmare scenario.

GLENN: Potential nightmare scenario.

VAN JONES: where we're going to be as a nation more ethically diverse.

GLENN: Where we're more ethically diverse.

VAN JONES: More culturally diverse.

GLENN: More culturally diverse.

VAN JONES: But, less and less economically prosperous.

GLENN: Stop for a second. So he's saying here that we are headed for a nightmare

scenario. Now, let me just say this. As I explain the nightmare scenario, I want

you just to think of these two words: Melting pot. Melting pot. He says we're

headed for a nightmare scenario where we are more and more ethnically diverse,

more and more culturally diverse, and then we have tough economic times. See,

what brings people together is to not separate them by language, by culture, and

by income. These are the guys who said separate by culture. All cultures should

be celebrated equally. There is no American culture. These are the guys who said

teach Spanish. They don't need to learn English. And these are also the people

who are dividing us in class warfare.

So he's describing, what did he say? A nightmare scenario, a recipe for a

battleground. Van, this was your plan from the beginning. Because what you're

describing is what you've done. You're the one saying that it's the white rich

man that is poisoning Hispanics. Your words, not mine. You have been planting

these seeds because you wanted a violent revolution from the beginning. You have

never gone back mainly because no one in the press will force you to answer the

question. Do you now say that a violent overthrow of the United States

government, an oppressive regime your words, not mine is off the table? Are you

now saying that that's not a good idea? Are you now saying I must reject all of

my Communist Manifesto ideas and all of my violent revolutionary ideas that I

was spouting and writing about and encouraging people to do within the last ten

years? Are you now rejecting all of these things, Van Jones? No. No, he's not.

No, he's not. He has just cleansed himself and put on a tie. And he has gone

through the Tides Foundation and the Apollo Alliance and the Center For American

Progress, and they've made him into a legitimate guy by having him speak at all

of the cool universities and get all of the great awards so he can be cleansed.

But he hasn't changed one single view.

So let's just see what we have. Claire McCaskill: Time to get the pitchforks.

Luis Gutierrez saying that there is a coming Latino revolt, and it won't be

beholden to anyone and it will reflect the 1960s. You have Ronald Reagan, Jr.

saying the ends justify the means: Bring guns to fight for social justice, you

have to do what you have to do. And Van Jones outlining the nightmare scenario,

a recipe for a battleground.

 

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
