If 'Republicans Lose With Donald Trump' in 2020 Election Then America As We Know it is Over, Says Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck has suggested that it would be the “end of the country as we know it” if Donald Trump does not win at the 2020 election because of the rise of radicalism and socialism in the Democratic Party.

Speaking to Fox News’s Sean Hannity, the conservative radio host and author said he had discussed the threat posed by the changing face of the party for the past year, which is now being highlighted by the election of Congresswomen such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, and the support of the Green New Deal.

“I said what was coming and the last few steps were that the radicals, the anarchists, the Islamists, the socialists would all gather together, they would not be working together, plotting together, but they would see the opportunity and they would all come together and work to destabilize Europe and America,” Beck said on Hannity, reported Mediate. “And that is exactly what is happening.”

Beck also spoke about a conversation he had with former Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman, who has also been critical of the new faces at the party. Beck said the Democrats who live across the street from him who he gets along with “don’t believe in infanticide, they don’t believe in destroying the free market system, they don’t believe in all of the stuff that’s coming out of the mouths of these radicals."

Beck also suggested that the party needs a shake-up similar to what has occurred with the British Labour Party, which has seen its leader Jeremy Corbyn heavily criticized and several politicians leave the party over long-running issues with anti-Semitism by its members.

“When are we going to have our Labour Party movement, where you have that in England where the socialist party has noticed ‘wow, we are just full of radicals and anti-Semites,” Beck said. “Members of the Labour Party in England are leaving saying ‘this is too radical for me.' When are the average people going to leave the Democratic Party, or at least wake up?"

Beck made the comments after Representative Omar was heavily criticized for comments surrounding support of Israel which were seen as using anti-Semitic tropes.

Towards the end of the interview, Hannity asked Beck what he would suggest to fix the Democratic party.

“Waking up,” Beck suggested. “I don’t know the antidote, but I will tell you this, if the Republicans don’t win in this next election, I think we are officially at the end of the country as we know it. We may not survive even if we win, but we definitely don’t if the Republicans lose with Donald Trump.”
