Glenn Beck says that Egypt-style chaos in the streets coming to the US soon
Examiner ^ | February 12, 2011 | Marc Schenker

Posted on 02/12/2011 4:16:32 AM PST by Suvroc10

Glenn Beck says that Egypt-style chaos in the streets coming to the US soon. By now, many people know that Glenn Beck—along with some conservatives and libertarians—believes that the Egypt uprising is anything but a true people’s movement and a call for democracy. As he and even some Middle East experts see it, the uprising that led to Mubarak’s stepping down yesterday is all a front for the anti-American, non-secular and Islamist Muslim Brotherhood taking over in Egypt. Beck also thinks that the chaos in Egypt’s streets will be the inspiration for revolutions in other countries, with the last stop on the world revolutions list being the good old US of A. He also says that the coming revolution will be masterminded by communist and socialist groups that have been egged on by Egypt’s example.

Interesting how often Obama uses the word “Inspire” when talking about the middle eastern mess.

I used to like Beck but seems as though his shelf life has expired.

Everyday it’s another dire prediction.

“Everyday it’s another dire prediction.”

I still like Beck but can only take so much. Just because we tire of his wailing doesn’t mean he’s wrong.

The leftists are still out there and are working hard to bring about their globalist agenda.

I think beck is a drama queen.....BUT

One line is barry’s speech made my skin crawl. It was something about “people all over the world can now rise up against their government”.

It’s not the exact wording, but something like that. I thought, that’s the kind of line someone would use to tell Muslim bros that THISIS THE TIME FOR YOUR ATTACKS.

Of course,he has been importing them into our country under the radar by the hundreds of thousands in the past two yrs. It wouldn’t surprise me if something big were about to happen.

DID ANYONE SEE THE SAN DIEGO PORT WMD STORY THIS WK?

I stopped watching awhile ago.....and I am not even that optimistic about the future. I think many of the things he talks about are indeed possible, but for God’s sake, mix in some good news every once in awhile.

He is very good on things like acorn.....big picture predictions, he is much less adept at IMO.

No doubt in my mind.

Now this obama is talking like he supported the uprising in Iran that came and went. They can’t fool all of us. Their hypocrisy was on full display this week and they are trying to cover their tracks. Iran’s muslim dictator is obama’s kind of dictator.

It’s not about to happen here unless things become a LOT worse. On the other hand, the present fiscal policies, divisive politics, and balkanization through uncontrolled immigration, lack of common language policies, and perverse education, may get us to that state in... oh... five to ten years.

Watching this Egyptian situation unfold and what Iran is doing I have been thinking of the following:

Iran is going to do a couple of things in the next few years:

One - it will go beyond just threatening stability in the Middle East (ME) - they will use their new found nuclear devices to spread havoc, spoil oil prices, end the rule of Saudi Arabia, and tear any assembly of order in Iraq away. They have already made sure their side facing Afghanistan is secure while working hand-in-hand with that government. While they are craving out a new Persian Empire in the ME and infiltrating Egypt in order to surround Israel they will implement the second phase of their current operations.
The second concentration from the Persians will come from Central and South America. Prepare for attacks on US infrastructure. Before launching any attacks on Israel, Iran will have to consume the US into a domestic disorder of national proportion. While the US is busy maintaining order they will launch their attacks against Israel - betting that the US will not become involved and if so - it will not be come a major influential aspect of destroying the Jewish state.

I’ll watch for these indicators which are transpiring presently in the open. I think the targets will be the sustainably to survive without electricity, public hospitals, government protection - those nuclear devices knocking out the power grid with EMPs may be the source of the Persians intent. I’m sure you are aware of the several cargo container ships from Iran discovered and seized in the Suez Canal heading for Israel - this may be not other than a rock drill to see when and how these ships are detected. The same could be used - and I think they will be - to target the US coastline with short range missiles.

Thee Persians have witnessed that the general population of the US relies heavily on others for basic needs. To divert the US attention away from Israel - it is the public infrastructure that will be attacked nationwide. Think about it for one moment. This generation is not the self-supported generation as compared to those of the 40’s - it has become heavy on laziness - and the Persians will exploit that very element in the US public sector to cause massive chaos. They speak about it all the time in their speeches - and I believe they are talking about what they have noticed - they are signaling to us their intended target.

They have moved into Iraq and Afghanistan - and already they maintain a presence in Lebanon - and currently working in Yemen to unseat Saudi Arabia and will use the crisis in Egypt to gain foot there as well. They have alliances with South American nations and are working with drug cartels in Central America.Even drug trade routes in Northern Africa give aid to their undetected movement. Their presence has been noticed in the Muslim Brotherhood front of CAIR and other so-called Arab fund raising organizations in the US. They have already prepped the groundwork in the US. They have been on the move since 1979 and are driving every asset into their Islamic Revolution. Of course - I could have mis-judged this entire situation from where I’m seating...but just a thought I wanted to get out.

Egypt’s protest and consequent coup had more to do with hyper-inflation than government administration.

With the US currently importing 40% of its food and the regulators ‘intentionally’ attempting to strangle local farming operations (Cloward–Piven) for the local good-cause of the day anything can happen...

...and when the beautiful people of privileged citizenship hit the streets. Well!

In case you missed it, we are living in a perfect storm of ‘affirmative action’ incompetence...anything can happen.

You’re not doing right for your family in denying this rioting over food shortage possibility imo.

He’s been showing how the same far left disruptors are involving themselves in the middle-east. He’s been exposing the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal to exterminate the Jews and Israel, and the goal of a global Caliphate.

But, you’re not watching. I guess it’s easy for you to jump on the bandwagon and criticize Glenn Beck.

I tried to watch Beck again a couple of days ago. After being yelled at for the first 10 minutes or so, I gave up.

His information is probably good, but I tire of the theatrics rather quickly.

The “Day of Rage” protests first appeared in 1969 Chicago and were organized by the Weathermen and SDS.

It is difficult to tell. Glenn might be right, then again he might not.

It’s worth remembering that while the majority of the protestors were Moslems, there were plenty of Hindus, Christians, Westernised students and peasants in the crowd and the military didn’t seem particularly keen to shut the protests down.

And even if it is the military rule that’s largely been responsible for Mubarak’s pro-West, pro-Israel stabilising effect, we really don’t know if they truly believed in peace with Israel, or if they only paid lip service to it because they got funding and support from us... support that they may then have used to oppress the general population of Egypt.

Right now there’s a possibility that the military will stick another general in Mubarak’s place and see how it goes, or they’ll transition to democracy.

There’s one specific reason why I think we can afford to take a step back: If there was any suspicion within the senior ranks of the Egyptian military that the Islamists stood a chance of creating a hardline Islamic Republic if democracy prevailed, they wouldn’t have sat on their hands. Remember what happened after Luxor? They pursued the Islamists with ruthless, deadly force.

Say what you like about Egypt but their secret police have too many people in too many places for them to call it totally wrong. If this was an Islamic uprising the military WOULD have stepped in.

My guess is that on this occasion the military and the protestors were on the same page but we don’t really know what that page is!

We were still thinking, “Yeah, but Mubarak’s not an Islamist and he’s been a good friend to the West” when these protests began. But, frankly, we haven’t been asking the right questions about Mubarak’s DOMESTIC policies yet.

If people were coming from the grass roots to call time on hunger, unemployment, excessive tax, and state tyranny by a one man regime with a foreign agenda, then it’s a Tea Party Movement in all but name.

It’s already been suggested by some foreign correspondants on the ground that the Egyptian uprising has given Hamas leaders, and the Iranian regime, more than a few sleepless nights. If it were an Islamic revolution I doubt they’d be as worried.

This begs the question: Mubarak was politically useful to us, but what if the general population of Egypt aren’t Islamists, and WOULD be good friends to the West?

Maybe the protests were just too peaceful. The left doesn't understand peaceful redress - they think that trash dumpsters and cars have to burn, and shoe stores need to be looted before their point can be made.

I wouldn’t put it past obama and his puppet masters to rile up the yutes here and do just that. The difference is that Americans are armed and we better use them.

What bothers me about Beck is he keeps reporting these dire predicitions yet wants us all to sing kumbaya and not resort to violence. I’m sorry but this is my country being destroyed along with my livelyhood. I keep and bear arms for a reason.

Most of us are smart enough to know that violence from the right is exactly what Obama needs to do away with that pesky constitution.

Our nation’s founders spend decades avoiding a fight and the shooting didn’t start until the British fired the first shot. In the late 60s and early 70s the far left marginalized themselves because of their inability to control themselves and they’ll do it again.

To 5 - I watched his show for a bit one day last week. He was admonishing the viewer that this time he is "right" and anyone thinking him crazy can "go to Hell!".
Beck fancies himself a rapt student of history, yet I recall him stating how much he did not know about even US history and just recently learned. Not obscure events, but things most kids are taught in high school. He talks about Thomas Paine as if he, Beck, is the only living person in America who has heard about him.
Oh, and his gut, Beck has a "gut feeling" about things and that is supposed to be valid reason why his proclamations and warnings need to go unquestioned.

Feck Beck.

You remind me of a history lesson, cripplecreek. Prior to the American Revolution and the Shot Heard ‘Round The World, noting Lexington and Concord, there were numerous skirmishes in the South. Sometimes History has a way of brushing the South aside in the history books (and the Yankees are going to be after me now).

No it’s not. He is just explaining the situation as it is unfolding. As he says, don’t tke his word for it, research.

You can’t expect a thorough explaination of what is going on in a one hour show. That is why it takes a week block to explain in full what is going on.

Beck is having the same reaction that most people do when they start researching a problem. Anger, sadness, urgency, and finally the frustration of making everything he learns public.
I think the last year should give some indication what it’s like. The Tea Party has been under unrelenting attack by the self described “elites” of the Dummie Party. The Dummies are acting like Mubarak. Obamubarak doesn’t think anyonehas the right to question him. This next election should be interesting.

One line is barry’s speech made my skin crawl. It was something about “people all over the world can now rise up against their government”.

What is scary is that sort of statement can have at least 3 meanings and will seem innocuous to many depending on how they interpret it.

1. Rise up and spread American style representative democracy throughout the world

2. Rise up and spread socialism and communism throughout the world

3. Rise up and spread sharia based islamic governments throughout the world
