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.

 

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
