Democratic Socialism spun as ‘innovative, millennial-friendly’ — here’s the reality

On Tuesday, 28-year-old Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, beat incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's 14th congressional district, in the most shocking upset of the political season. Ocasio-Cortez is an activist and member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Who are the Democratic Socialists of America and what do they stand for?

"Democratic Socialist will not be covered [by the media] as the radicals that they are," said Glenn Beck on today's show. "They'll be covered as innovative, millennial-friendly upstarts with fresh ideas on how to rescue and save the country from the tyranny of white patriarchy and capitalism. It will be covered as a people's movement. See, this is what people have been clamoring for under the tyranny of President Trump."

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) are not a political party but rather the largest socialist activist organization in the United States. Two groups that have been around since the early 1970's merged to form the DSA in 1982: The Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the New American Movement. The SDS is the group that produced such nefarious characters as Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and the Weather Underground terrorist group that was responsible for 25 bombings in the early 1970's.

In 2011, the DFA joined Antifa in the 'Occupy Wall Street' Movement. They also support the Black Lives Matter movement and have raised funds for abortion rights movements.

"The DSA's crowning achievement, I would say, would have to be their push to make Bernie Sanders president in 2016," said Glenn. "Part of that effort included their 'People's Revolution 101' program, in which the Democratic Socialists of America sponsored seminars teaching people basic democratic socialist principles."

According to their website, the mission of the DSA is to bring about the end of capitalism through a commitment to "restructuring society. The 'DSA Constitution' reads, in part:

We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships.
We are socialists because we are developing a concrete strategy for achieving that vision, for building a majority movement that will make democratic socialism a reality in America.

"There's no way around it, Socialism and Communism are kissing cousins. The only difference is when this concrete strategy begins to fail, that's when somebody grabs a gun and Socialism goes to Communism. Socialism really is just diet-Communism," said Glenn. "Putting 'democratic" before Socialist … makes it seem, I dunno, a little less Stalin and more Bernie Sanders."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
