Amazon enlists THESE hate mongers to fight against... hate groups?

How do you know when there's a hate group lurking in America that you need to watch out for? The Southern Poverty Law Center, of course. The SPLC is the all-seeing eye that scans the land for hate. Then, when they find hate, or at least their definition of it, they add that group to their hate list so we can all avoid those groups and feel much safer.

The SPLC's latest target is the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian nonprofit group that defends religious freedom cases in court. The ADF has played a role in 52 victories at the Supreme Court over the years. So, the Left needs to take them out. Cue the SPLC.

The Alliance Defending Freedom was recently banned from the Amazon Smile program. That's the program in which customers can elect to give a small cut of their Amazon purchase to a nonprofit organization of their choice. Amazon Smile kicked the ADF out of the program because the SPLC determines which groups qualify.


Their reason? The ADF is currently before the Supreme Court representing the cake shop owner who refused to make a gay wedding cake.

How did the SPLC get to be chief hate enforcer? Well, they're actually self-anointed. They claim their moral capital from the fact they were founded in 1971 by a white guy in Alabama to fight racial injustice. Never mind that the KKK was virtually nonexistent at that point, it turns out sounding the alarm about the threat of Klansmen is fantastic for fundraising.

You don't build a half a billion dollar endowment by limiting your hate group list to quacks like the KKK and Nazis. Like any business, you must expand.

So, that became the SPLC's formula – shine a spotlight on hate groups and see the cash flood in for the legal takedown of those groups. They've been doing it ever since. They spend more money on fundraising than actual legal work. You don't build a half a billion dollar endowment by limiting your hate group list to quacks like the KKK and Nazis. Like any business, you must expand.

Why Amazon is taking advice from the SPLC, which is essentially a PAC for the Democratic Party, is anyone's guess. But it's a safe bet that Amazon's leadership finds a lot more in common with the SPLC than the Alliance Defending Freedom. That's why Planned Parenthood is still allowed to participate in the Amazon Smiles program.

When common sense leaves the building, it leaves a ton of absurdity behind.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
