'If they have to kill you, they will—they have': Cuban immigrant from viral video doubles down on dire warning

A video of Maximo Alvarez giving a powerful speech during a roundtable discussion with President Donald Trump last week is blowing up the internet. In his speech, Maximo, a Cuban immigrant who escaped Fidel Castro's communist regime as a teen, issued a dire warning against the rise in Marxism we're now seeing in America.

On the radio program Friday, Maximo joined Glenn Beck to double down on his warning for Americans. He briefly shared his family's history, explaining how his family first fled to Cuba from Spain to escape communism, only to see Cuba fall under communist rule with Fidel Castro.

"I know, firsthand, how difficult and how painful it was for families who were being destroyed for no reason. Families who had nothing to do with politics. Families who had nothing to do with government. It was just hard-working families. So I grew up in that environment, and then sure enough, by the time I was 11 years old, the same thing happened in Cuba," Maximo said. "My story is just one of many, many millions of people, running away from communism, looking for the land of the free. And it's amazing, it's amazing that we [in America] don't appreciate that."

Maximo said that everything that is currently happening in America, from the cancel culture and cultural revolution to the media bombardment, is "the same old story" of how communism overthrows countries.

"This is the same old story. It doesn't change. We need to explain to people that the communist philosophy is based on the fact that the ends justify the means. The ends justify the means," he emphasized. "They will do whatever is necessary to accomplish their objective. If they have to tell you they're Catholics, or they have to tell you they belong to certain religions, they will. If they have to kill you, they will -- they have. Just look at exactly what happened in Cuba."

He went on to explain how the fear Americans are currently being fed is exactly what Cuban Marxists used to destroy capitalism and freedom.

"One person can create enough fear, that it will destroy the economy. That means, for example, you cannot go to a theater. You cannot go to a restaurant ... and it gets so far out of hand that people are afraid to go out," Maximo said. "And then what happens to our economy? Capitalism and fear are not synonyms. You cannot be a capitalistic economy, with fear. And that's why it's called terrorism.

"Look what is happening today, with our own governors, mayors. This is amazing," he added. "All they do is use people to create dissension. To create hatred. That's what they do. They are experts at class warfare."

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
