'Glenn Beck': Neutralizing the Truth

This is a rush transcript from "Glenn Beck," May 10, 2010. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GLENN BECK, HOST: Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. Tonight, I want to start here — I want to start with a video. This is a teacher in California. As you watch — remember — this guy is influencing the youth of America. Watch carefully.


RON GOCHEZ, ACTIVIST TEACHER: This is about a global struggle against imperialism and capitalism. But we know that all that is happening with the context of where we now stand is stolen, occupied Mexico!


GOCHEZ: And the lesson that we bring if you want to bring a little bit more of a revolutionary context to this. Why is it that these people, these frail, racist white people want to keep us out of this country?


BECK: It's so — what? Revolutionary talk. We have more on him in just a second. By the way, this is a rally in defense of La Raza. La Raza, La Raza, why — oh, I remember, that's Sonia Sotomayor's old stomping grounds. Isn't that great? We'll tell you everything you need to know about this and so much more — coming up. Let's go!


BECK: Hello, America. Do you know what's so weird about that video? Do you know where I found that? I found that on the Internet this weekend. It's an activist teacher, Ron Gochez. Yes, I didn't see it on CNN. No. Or that the Shakespearean guy that is so — so dramatic at 9:00 p.m. or 8:00 p.m. or whenever he's on. I don't know. I don't watch. But I didn't see it there. I saw it instead on YouTube. Yes. It's been out there for a while, just making the rounds on the Internet. This guy is still teaching in high school, same school. Yes, yes. I wonder if that will change. Probably not.

You know, a lot of the raw audio of these Marxist and communist, you know, running around the White House and everywhere else, originally posted on YouTube or on a blog site. Think of all the information you'd be missing if, you know, we didn't have the Internet available. After all, much of the video that took down Van Jones, the video that we've been playing about Anita Dunn and Andy Stern and just about everybody came from the Internet.

Boy, that sounds like a pesky problem for people in the White House, doesn't it? Well, in a completely unrelated speech, the president gave this weekend — over the weekend at Hampton University — completely unrelated to any kind of video problems or anything like that, during the campaign, Obama said that he was against the Fairness Doctrine — right — because, well, that's old time stuff, you know? But as FCC diversity czar, Mark Lloyd, says, the Fairness Doctrine doesn't go far enough.

I've told you from the beginning, it was going to be never about the Fairness Doctrine. It was never about fairness. It's really about redistribution of power and control. So, over the weekend, this should — this should chill you to the bone, America. This is what our president just said about speech.


PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: You are coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kind of arguments, some of which don't always rank that high on the truth meter.


BECK: Oh, no. Let's ban that!


OBAMA: And with iPods and iPads and Xboxes and Playstations...

BECK: Playstations...


OBAMA: ...none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction...


BECK: Wow.


OBAMA: ...a diversion. So, all of this is not only putting pressure on you; it's putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy. With so many voices clamoring for attention and blogs, and on cable, and on talk radio, it can be difficult at times to sift through it all, to know what to believe, to figure out who's telling the truth and who's not.

Let's face it — even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I've had some experience in that regard.


BECK: Yes, with this show. But I don't make those claims. I just play the video that we get online. It's weird, isn't it? I've never heard the president ever say anything like that. I mean, first of all, what kind of information do you get from your iPod or Playstation? It's almost like a red herring there. And I've also never heard the president of the United States ever — at any time — say information is a distraction. That you don't know what to believe anymore. Whoa!

Information is power. And if it's not, then, well, we should fire everybody at the CIA. We should stop doing any kind of focus groups for speeches. Information can be distracting. Hmm. Pesky problem — pesky problem. Now, who's to blame for spreading all the rumors? Well, of course, 24/7 cable news. Well, I mean, some cable news channels, you know, they don't rank high on the truth meter. Could that be something like him declaring war on Fox again? It's so — it worked out so poorly for him last time. If I — if I'm wrong, you can call me. Go ahead.

He also says it's certain blogs, not all blogs. Certain blogs on the Internet and talk radio outlets. Wow, that is so weird. It's almost like an enemy's list, isn't it? Oh, man, this network, certain blogs and talk radio. Wow, those are the only media outlets spreading falsehoods. Everybody else, including the people at the White House, are squeaky clean. Boy, what are the odds? I'm sure this has does nothing to do with silencing opponents. No, no, no.

No. The president just calls them as he sees them. That's it. Let me see if we can work on this with the president a little bit. I mean, he's encouraged people to think outside the box. And I don't want to give you too much information here and confuse you, but he said, if you watch this show, you should read The Huffington Post — which I do. Nothing wrong with reading The Huffington Post — you know exactly what they're saying then. Huffington Post, breaking news and opinion. It's great. I have no problem with The Huffington Post. Straight-shooting Web site, you're going to get the truth there.

No seriously. Edward R. Murrow and Tim Russert and Arianna Huffington — same person. Have you ever seen them at a party together? No. Why? Oh, is that disinformation? I'd just — I'd like to ask the president to go slumming on the other side of the tracks for a second and take a look at some of the stories that are not juicy enough for the mainstream media. And, yes, The Huffington Post. For instance, Crime Inc. — Crime Inc. We've been talking about Crime Inc. for a while now. It's all about cap-and-trade and, you know, global agreements — and it's great. It's great. But let's just — these are trustworthy sources, POTUS-approved, so you can trust them. They won't confuse you.

NBC and MSNBC. Got it? OK? Do you know who their parent company is? G.E. Do you know who their CEO is? Jeffrey Immelt. Now, maybe I'm wrong but I don't recall the White House declaring war on MSNBC or NBC. I could be way off-base here, but I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that Jeffrey Immelt is also on the president's Economic Recovery Advisory Board. That's great. Maybe you can call me, Mr. President. Please. I don't — I don't — no, no, want to get this wrong. Please. I know we're just a — we're just a bad cable network, but please.

Now, have you noticed that NBC has this bizarre proclivity for airing Green Weeks? Yes. It's weird, because G.E., the energy company, is doing green energy specials. It's weird. It's like Al Gore practically takes over the network for days at a time and then just reads poems and tells lame jokes whenever he feels the need to preach that humans are melting the earth. Let's watch.


AL GORE, FORMER U.S. VICE PRESIDENT: If we're going to solve the climate crisis, we've got to change more than the light bulbs and the windows. We've got to change laws and the policies through collective political action on a large scale. You know, there's an African proverb that I made up: "If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." We need to go far quickly. Global warming deniers persist in this era of unreality. After all, the entire North Polar icecap which has been there for most of the last 3 million years is disappearing before our eyes.


BECK: Gone! Santa is drowning right now. It's sad, kiddies. It's sad. Does anybody have a life preserver for Santa?

MSNBC not only does a Green Week thing, which is weird that it's an energy company and he's in the office with the president. Isn't that weird? But they'll even let, you know, like RFK, Jr. just eat up valuable airtime to spew his climate change crap. So, so, there they are — going so far out of their way just to push the green agenda. Why would they do that? I mean, forget that they're an energy company. That's just me, the crazy guy on TV saying that. Why don't I find a — oh, I know — I'll find this guy, because he's a smart professor, Joel Rogers. He is the progressive man behind the curtain of Crime Inc. Yes. He's done a lot of stuff. He's working with the Chicago Climate Exchange. But he's also the founder of the Apollo Alliance, which wrote the stimulus package. He's also the wizard of Emerald Cities. Oh, Emerald Cities. Let's watch. What is he saying? Watch.


JOEL ROGERS, CHICAGO CLIMATE EXCHANGE: If you do the six things I think you will be well on your way to actually greening the American economy and you will grow the wealth and G.E. and Cisco and the other people who are announcing great plans should be relatively happy with that. And any environmentalist who's not concerned with the distribution of that wealth should be relatively happy, too.


BECK: That is amazing. We're going to green the economy — meaning G.E. is going to get rich. Isn't that weird? By the way, also the — you know, all of his groups are — it's just kind of a coalition, "of unions, labor groups, community organizations, social justice advocates, socially responsible business and elected officials." That's great, like Green for All, Van Jones group? Yes, yes. And his community organization is there and AFL-CIO and SEIU and — do you know what's weird? On a completely unrelated story, did you know that Van Jones' group launched a boycott of this show? That's weird. That's weird. There it is. Oh, and there's another one. This is — in a completely unrelated note, did you know that SEIU also organized a boycott of this show? Yes. Yes. Oh, that's right! And this one, in a completely unrelated note, did you know that the AFL-CIO launched an attack on this show? Watch. This one is great.


RICHARD TRUMKA, AFL-CIO: We are working to counter the Glenn Beck effect and turn anger into action for real change.


BECK: I wonder if they'll bury me — could it be the 50-yard line? I don't like the end zone. Would you bury me there? It's weird, isn't it? The trail of money leading to the green movement — OK, OK.

So, Mr. President, I'm just — I'm just looking here. I'm just thinking. It's not just — it's not just Internet, radio. I love him! He's fantastic. AFL-CIO. It's not just that. It's also NBC or MSNBC. We know they're trustworthy sources. We get the truth from G.E. — NBC. We do. But remember, it's not just them. No, no. No, no. It's not. It's also The Washington Post. Now remember, talk radio, cable, some blogs causing the problems. Not The Washington Post. Washington Post is a credible organization, home of Woodward and Bernstein, you know? They have no interest in looking into this. There's nothing to see here, people. Move on with your life. Move on. Yes.

Every single organization — Marxist, communist, people at G.E. just directly profiteering from legislation — that's weird. And then people who are silencing anybody who speaks out against it. Now, you wouldn't want to write a story like that in The Washington Post. No, no, no. This is crazy talk. That's what this is. But do you know what is news in The Washington Post? This is — this is interesting. I like this one. Here it is. Washington Post: "Christians Stand Up to Glenn Beck." Oh, my goodness. Look at this. I didn't notice the byline. By Jim Wallis. This guy! This is so weird.

This is what The Washington Post is spending their time on, exposing me. Jim Wallis writing a story. He is one of Obama's religious advisors and one of his political advisors there in the White House, oh, and the founder of the Wallis social justice group. And do you know what's weird? He's also — these guys are boycotting the show here and he is, too. Isn't that weird? Wow, bummer for me that there are so many grassroots effort there to boycott the show. Washington Post probably doesn't even have time to report on the real news. They're too busy trying to merge with — The Huffington Post.

This — I've heard this before. It's — oh, I remember. The place that the president recommends that everybody goes for balanced news. Oh! It's weird. Now that I remember The Huffington Post, just a few days earlier, they posted an oddly similar story on me, that Jim Wallis and The Washington Post — this is it. "Glenn Beck to Jesus: Drop Dead." Yes, it's strange, because it almost is the same story that was written over here. But the president wants you to go to The Huffington Post for the truth. Well, that's good. I hope they are able to merge now.

Of course, didn't The Huffington Post cost like $56 million? I doubt there's a progressive billionaire out there who would be willing to dump any money into something like that, you know? Except for — except for somebody maybe like George Soros or Tides, or the Joyce Foundation, because they were over here, the Joyce Foundation was — maybe they could. Let me ask you a question of the journalists? No, forget that. I'll actually save my breath on the journalists. Let me ask a question of all the parents, the uncles, the aunts, the sons, the daughters — anybody — anybody — a sibling of journalists. Could you just call your relative and say, "Why the hell aren't you reporting on any of this? What happened to you?" Is there any family member out there that just kind of wonders, you know, when you get together for, you know, barbecues or something?

But I digress. I am on the president's naughty list and so is Fox and talk radio — and now, the Internet. But, who's not? Well, one that's not on the naughty list, no way, shape or form, the network funded by your tax dollars, PBS. Oh, they are — can I tell you something? They are so trustworthy. In fact, I feel bad for them. I hate to even bring them up because they just lost their electrifying host Bill Moyers to retirement. So, now, he's going to have more time to meet, you know, at Marxist meetings, at church. Do you know that he goes to the United Church of Christ? Which is the same denomination as Jeremiah Wright, which is weird — hmph!

Anyway, when he was at church, they happened to petition the FCC — right here, media violence, fast. Take action. Sign the letter. They wanted to look into hate speech on talk radio. What a coincidence, so does the president! Moyers recently produced a special for PBS called "The Net at Risk." This is a documentary featuring the SaveTheInternet.com coalition presented by Free Press — Free Press. Reform media, transform democracy. Ooh, that kind of sounds spooky, huh? Yes. But that's what the president said we were going to do this weekend. Transform democracy — the urgent need for net neutrality. Do you know, I read about that special that Bill Moyers did with the Free Press? You'll never guess where. The Huffington Post! And here in New York tomorrow, the Free Press, a radical leftist group. Their goal is not free press or faster Internet speeds — no, no, no. Robert McChesney, the founder, wants to destroy capitalism.

They're having a little — they're having a little pow-wow tomorrow. Here's what he said in the past: "Any serious evident effort to reform the media system would have to necessarily be part of a revolutionary program to overthrow the capitalist political economy." Uh-oh! He says, "There's no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capital and capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles." This isn't going well, is it? "We need to do whatever we can to limit capitalist propaganda, regulate it, minimalize it and perhaps even eliminate it." What was the president was saying just on Saturday? Oh, yes. It's confusing. It's hard to know.

So, Free Press wants to take over, wants the government to take over the media. I don't — I don't want to just say that myself. I want you to hear it from them, themselves — the government take over the media.


MCCHESNEY: What if, instead, we took a few thousand AmeriCorps jobs and gave them to news-gathering organizations?


BECK: What if we just took AmeriCorps and just took it and had them just take over — the irony in front of the Free Press banner. Boy, somebody should read the federalist papers. What was it? Number 10? McChesney also called for the government to bail out and take over the media in an opinion piece that ran — in The Washington Post!

The FCC also says they are marching forward, marching with a boot on your throat to — announcing plans to make Internet companies a public utility. Free Press just happens to have one of its former people sitting — right here. FCC chairman, and guess who is an assistant? Former member of the Free Press, now at the FCC. This is weird because, therefore, net neutrality — the court shot that one down, but they are going to make at it public utility now. I — I know we can trust all these organizations now. We're getting the truth. I'll give you some more of that truth — next.




OBAMA: Coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kind of content and exposes us to all kind of arguments, some of which don't always rank that high on the truth meter. With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and Playstations — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion.


BECK: I mean, America, are you kidding me? Really? Now, he's going to take care of us. He knows! He knows. I've just shown you. These are trustworthy, POTUS-approved. PBS, Washington Post, MSNBC with G.E., and SEIU, and Apollo Alliance, and AFL-CIO, and AmeriCorps, and The Huffington Post, and Free Press, with PBS — it's great. It's great — that I'm engaging in falsehoods. It's weird because I get — a lot of things that we do, I get the video that they've posted themselves before they scrubbed them clean off the Internet. I guess they can't scrub as fast as we find them saying things. And then — and then they have to make it sound like we're doing evil rumors, even though it's usually them.

No one else is engaged in confusing the American public, except for this network, talk radio and the Internet. So now, the president wants to regulate the Internet, to help control all the misinformation out there. He is going to do it with net neutrality. Well, the court said no. Net neutrality is Free Press, transform media and transform democracy. It's fantastic. And that was their idea. But the court said no. Nancy Pelosi said, well, we'll pole vault it just to get things done, I mean, whatever. So, now what they're doing is the FCC is just going to — they're going to make it a public utility. The Internet. Where are you, America, without the Internet? And they're right about the misinformation. It's everywhere. MSNBC, let's watch.


KEITH OLBERMANN, MSNBC HOST: The members of the Tea Parties are older, which would seem to suggest they should remember that the same anti- government stuff was hurled at Clinton, while the country was prospering...


BECK: Taxing the truth.


OLBERMANN: ...in ways it had not previously under Clinton.

RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC HOST: Imagine that people were protesting against cuts to government that were going to hurt their quality of life. It might not get as much airtime as the Tea Party anti-government protest but that is, in fact, some of what's going on out there in America right now.


BECK: How about — how about PBS? How about PBS? Can we do the PBS?


BILL MOYERS: There's a very important incident described in this book that occurred in 1965, when the John Birch Society, an organization these new Americanist groups resemble — the ones who are marching in Washington and holding Tea Parties. Essentially, very extremist revanchist groups that view politics in a conspiratorial way.


BECK: OK. OK. Thank you, Bill Moyers, for that. Extremist, conspiratorial, anti-government, radicals. You know what's weird, if somebody took the time in the last couple of weeks, I can't even imagine how much time it took to go through all of the transcripts of this show and then compare my words to the words of Adolf Hitler in "Mein Kampf." Who has that kind of time — especially in this booming economy? Who has that? You might have seen the report on the liberal blog site, The Daily Kos. But where did this actually come from? Yes. It's weird. George Soros' Media Matters. I know it took a lot of money to do that, and time.

By the way, have you seen the story about how my ratings are dropping? We — the week that this came out, we were number one in entire cable all week. Yes. I mean, Bill O'Reilly did take a vacation. So, hats off to Bill. Take a few more, will you? One of those nasty rumors — look at that. There it is. I actually saw this on — in the L.A. Times. Do you know where it came from first? Isn't that strange? There's also these Internet postings that I've lost like 70,000 sponsors, companies that haven't even been formed yet, stopping advertising on the show. You can read them all about — you know, read about those all the time on The Huffington Post — and yes, Media Matters. Media Matters — which is that George Soros' leftist, socialist kind of all of these people rolled up into one. That's weird.

Mr. President, I think you might be onto something. And, lastly, a strange thing happened on my Facebook or Twitter page this weekend. After months and years of this never happening to me, my fans have suddenly started posting racist things. That's weird — because all the leftist people on Twitter are saying, why hasn't Glenn Beck said anything about this? Well, because I'm not responsible for idiots. And I don't think they're fans of mine, honestly. Why? Well, have you met Cass Sunstein? Because Cass Sunstein showed his hand. You see, he has steps to dispel a conspiracy theory against the government. Yes. Yes. It came out in a memo. It's fantastic!

What the government can do about conspiracy theories. The first, ban all conspiracy theories. Yes. Somehow or another, they define that as, you know, things that you don't like. Second is, tax conspiracy theories. You know, tax them, financial or otherwise. Those people who disseminate such theories.

What is the "otherwise" part, Cass? Then they say the government themselves may engage in counter-speech, marshalling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories. Why discredit them? Why not just prove them to be wrong? I was waiting for an answer on that. I don't think they're going to call.

Number four, this one I really like. The government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counter-speech. They say online — kind of like my Twitter page, and in person. There might be a government agent. It's neat, because they say this is going to help the credibility of the government if they do that.

And then, the last one, they might engage in informal communication with such parties encouraging them to help. Cass Sunstein's words. He says anything that he deems a false conspiracy against the government will be taken to task.

I want to ask you a question. You know that the NEA made rules for radicals' recommended reading. Did you know that? Yes. The people in Washington — they're the radicals. They're the radicals. They are. Not you. Not me. But Rules for Radicals — their playbook. May I quote something out of that playbook? And just ask yourself who are you more comfortable with?

Rules for Radicals, quote, "Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical from our legends, mythology and history, and who is there to know where mythology leaves off and history begins or which is which, the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom..." oh, man "...Lucifer." You know, Satan?

Saul Alinsky — we are dealing with people who think they should rebel until they get their little kingdom like Satan did. You know what? Thanks, Mr. President, but I think we're going to keep the Internet the way it is right now. You know — or at least until people who are worshipping Satan, you know, aren't in office.



BECK: America, please, don't let them change the Miranda laws. Don't let them do anything to citizens. Please. Please understand who we are facing. I want to talk to you about the economy, about what the president said this weekend.

There's a lot of crazy theories going out there, so I figure we'd better check in with The Huffington Post and the New York Times on this next story. The story is Greece.

Now, Greece, the debt problem — fixed, and it was a close one. The European Union bolstered Greece's floundering economy with almost $1 trillion of infusion. Now, right now, if you don't listen to this show and you only just read the Times, you probably would be a tad confused.

You'd say to yourself, wait a minute. Didn't I just hear that it was a $40 billion bailout? And then, just the other day, wasn't it like $145 billion bailout? And then I wake up this morning and it's a $1 trillion for Greece? Wow. Wow.

How did that happen? If you watch the show, you know, because this is what I said about Greece on February 24th with David Buckner.


BECK: France goes down. This week, it's France. Then they will rush to bail-out France, because France can't bail. That won't work.

DAVID BUCKNER, ADJUNCT PROFESSOR, COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY: And a larger country, you have Germany that comes in and we make the assumption that Germany is there to bail out France as part of the E.C.


BECK: OK. It's happened. It's happening now. Who bailed them out? Germany. But here is what the media has been saying about me in all along in an article titled — New York Times:
“Fox News' Mad Apocalyptic Cheerful Rising Star."

They wrote in part, "He talked to experts about the possibility of global financial panic and widespread outbreaks of violence." Oh, man. Oh, I know, that's crazy talk. Any financial panic or outbreaks of violence - that's crazy. That would never happen.

And as our president pointed out during his commencement speech this weekend, there is a lot of questionable stuff from bloggers, this one from News Hounds, "Glenn Beck fear mongering of the day — radical European thought is now on our shores." That's downright silly, right?

Well, here is a headline from the New York Times this past Saturday. "Greek Debt Woe Ripple Outward from Asia to U.S." Wait a minute. What? I thought that was right-wing lunatic crazy talk.

On "Fox and Friends" this morning, Stuart Varney was asked if a trillion-dollar bailout would fix the situation from Greece. This is important. He said no, that is not what it was about. It's about buying time.


STUART VARNEY, ANCHOR, FOX BUSINESS NETWORK: All it does is buy some time. The underlying problem, the European socialist model, is broken. You've got to fix it. Can they fix it? In my opinion, probably not, so you are just buying time with $1 trillion.


BECK: OK. Buying time. For what? To fix it? No. For whom? Time to implement more failed socialist programs? Time to consolidate more power? Yes. Time to rake more cash off the stock market? Yes. Time to integrate global governments? Yes, yes.

All of these countries are collapsing because of socialism. The question is, why are we headed toward socialism when everything else is collapsing? Forget about the time, how they're using it. Let me ask you this — how are you using it?

When the TARP debate was raging, that first week we heard about that — when it was at $757 billion? I initially said, for the first three days, I was for it because I believed that the people in the government were telling the truth when they said we were headed for the side of a mountain. We are.

The prevailing theory was the TARP bailout would help us land our plane in the trees instead of side of the mountain. Still be a crash landing, but we would have time to prepare.

By Wednesday of that week, I quickly realized that they had no intention of landing it in the trees. No, no, no. Instead, they had every intention of continuing to fly the play towards the mountain side.

They had time to put on their parachutes but they weren't going to tell you. They would tell you that everything was OK. This Greek debacle is now America's second warning. Please prepare for a crash landing. How will you use this time?


BECK: All right. We showed you the president's commencement speech from the past weekend, assailing the new forms of media. But let me ask you this. Where is the established, old-world media on anything that is going on in this country? Where are they?

The New York Times is now just waking up to the problem in Greece and admitting that the problem is now spreading to Asia and the United States. That is weird. The Washington Post continues to attack me, but ignore all the evidence, the facts that I present.

Time magazine with lead attack Lilliputian, Joe Klein, remains blissfully ignorant about anything but savaging me on a regular basis.

A little over a year ago, James Poniewozik — whatever — wrote an article titled "The Fears of a Clown" — that would be me — attacking. James wrote in part — this is a year ago, over a year ago, "Fear of what? Take your pick. Fear that the U.S. is on a long march to fascism. That fat cats and bureaucratic 'bloodsuckers' are plundering your future. That Mexico will collapse in chaos and will pour over the border."

Yes. James, as for any potential march towards fascism, a word I don't usually use — I mean, warrantless searches of your E-mail, no assumption of privacy to your location, the possibility of government agents, according to Cass Sunstein, infiltrating your Tea Party meetings, and now, considering dropping Miranda rights for citizens suspected of terror.

There is no fascism like any march towards it at all with that. You know, it seems, in the past, Time magazine may have had a slight problem with all of those things, but not now.

And as for plundering your future — oh, I don't know. $120 trillion worth of debt seems slightly plunder-ish to me. Is Mexico's collapse farfetched? Chaos on the borders — unheard of now.

Wow. James? Give it up. I mean, you're a guy who is just never going to wake up. For the rest of Americans, it's time to wake up. It's time to prepare. Things have changed.

What did the president say over the weekend? Breathtaking — change is happening at a breathtaking pace. Yes, it is. My message to you is prepare for the worst and hope and pray for the best. Prepare, because those who have money and — you know, they know this. They know all of this stuff. They are.

I'd like to invite you to go to GlennBeck.com and sign up for free trial of The Insider Extreme. We have free radio show with a six camera shoot on it. We have — a couple of documentaries are going on right now, the history of the fed and progressivism in this country. It's all free.

The only way to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past is to learn from them. Check it out at GlennBeck.com, free today and tomorrow. Do it now. Back in a second.


BECK: Earlier in the program, I introduced you to a social justice teacher and revolutionary activist Ron Gochez. Here is a little more of revolutionary Ron at a rally in defense of La Raza at UCLA.


RON GOCHEZ, SOCIAL JUSTICE TEACHER AND REVOLUTIONARY ACTIVIST: We have nine, nine left of center governments in Latin America right now. And they know something that one young Argentine called Che Guevara, said. It was called the domino theory. And he knew that every single country would go revolutionary, one after the other, after the other, after the other.


So what do they fear? They know that every single country — they know that we no longer will fall for these lies called borders. We know that an El Salvadoran, a Guatemalan, a Nicaraguan, an Americano — there's no damn difference. We are all one people. So, with that in mind, we see ourselves, all of us here, as the northern front of a Latin American revolutionary movement.


BECK: Told you these people were here. Ron's rant reportedly happened in 2007. But of course, he couldn't possibly still be influencing, you know, young minds in classroom in California after what we just heard? I mean, that couldn't happen, could it?

We called Santee High School in Los Angeles where he is listed as a social studies teacher in the school of public service and social justice to find out. It turns out, yes, he is still teaching. Yes.

Maybe this is why the Teachers' Union wanted a bill that would take out a clause from the public employee, oh, saying, that you've never been a communist. Remember that?

Here is what the bill that Schwarzenegger ended up vetoing aimed to do., "Under existing law, a public employee is required to answer under oath specified questions including but not limited to knowing membership in an organization advocating the forceful or violent overthrow of the government of the United States or any state."

This bill would delete the provisions. Gee, crazy me. I think it would be great to have teachers that didn't advocate, you know, in a group, the overthrow of the government.

America, I used to think that people like this were unusual. But are they anymore? Let me ask you why isn't there a bigger outcry? Does anybody find it interesting that The Washington Post and Huffington Post have been hammering me for saying that "social justice" is a code word for "communist?"

This guy teaches at a school for social justice. Interesting. That's remarkable. Back in a minute.


ANNOUNCER: The players of Crime, Inc. and their international connections, exposed tomorrow at 5:00 p.m.

BECK: Pretty amazing. Also, Founding Fathers — Founders’ Fridays. Number two behind Bill O'Reilly. And this week, a founder you've probably have never heard of — George Whitfield, what he did to unite the country even before we were a country.

And so — amazing things. He had a dark period in his life but it set a fire elsewhere that turned out really good. We will tell you about it on Friday.

Plus, sign up for a free trial of The Insider Extreme at GlennBeck.com. Check it out. And also — apparently, I was cut off in one of the breaks and it made it sound like I was saying that Obama was a Satan worshipper. No, it was just a Saul Alinsky quote, just a guy he likes a lot.

From New York, good night.
