Great Moments in Progressive History: Che Guevara

The year: 2015

The place: the Revolutionary-of-the-month t-shirt give away and literacy awareness day hosted jointly by UNSECO and OWS

Today's revolutionary... Che Guevara!

You know kids, great leaders like Che don't have to be so few and far between.

In fact, you, son...

Yes, you...

You look like you and the great revolutionary whom we hold in highest regard may have some things in common.

You see son, Che was no ordinary Marxist revolutionary.

He was much like you and your douchey Occupy Wall Street buddies… born of rich parents…

Unwilling to work for his keep and angry about it…

All he was missing was the 18th century German poetry degree, iPhone and skinny jeans…

…which means you're already doing better than him!

But don't worry son! As long as we keep the money away from the greedy capitalist pigs the redistribution is working!

Like all Marxists, Che believed in the sound principle of "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need"

Oops, I read that wrong!

What I meant to say was "from each capitalist pig according to his tax bracket and to each government agency that believes that all capitalists are in fact pigs!”

Speaking of pigs, that's something else you and Che have in common!

Did you know that as a kid, Che was referred to as Chancho?

It means pig! Because he didn't bathe very often...

…but even revolutionaries need to look good at White House correspondence dinners.

So maybe you should throw on some more deodorant, because seriously dude, you kind of reek.

Onward though, despite your stench... Che was a doctor, he even traveled to South America to blame the greedy American capitalists for all the poverty he saw.

And that's why, when he met the Castro brothers…

Oh, don't worry son, Fidel Castro is next month's revolutionary t-shirt.

Che decided to join up with the Castro’s to overthrow the Cuban government, because it was backed by the greedy US capitalist pigs!

Once the Castro regime was in place, Che was placed in charge of the La Cabana Fortress prision to maintain peace and order.

And, of course, to make sure everyone in Cuba kept to a strict belief system. Nonbelievers were handled with extrajudicial executions! We can't have any pesky capitalists in our Marxist utopia!

Che enjoyed murdering people so much that as soon as he was promoted, he made sure to grab an office with a view of the firing squad.

Finally, Che went off to foment Marxist revolution elsewhere until the evil Bolivian soldiers backed by the CIA took him out.

So now it is up to you, son! You must take up the mantle and continue to bring peace to the nations of the world.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
