The real history of Rosa Parks

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn has always talked about the importance of understanding U.S. history and doing your homework. This morning on radio, Glenn explained that, in many cases, our history is so much better than we realize. The story of Rosa Parks the Civil Rights movement, for example, is even more complex than most people realize.

“I mean, I grew up in Seattle, Washington. I didn’t know Rosa Parks. I mean, that was so far removed from me that – nothing was real,” Glenn said. “With that being said, we’ve also learned some things. Do you know that Rosa Parks was not the first one to say, ‘I’m not sitting in the back of the bus?’ Do you know who the first one was? And she was not selected because the NAACP said, ‘We can’t sell it.’”

“This wasn’t a spontaneous thing. It doesn’t make it bad. It’s still good. But the first spontaneous one was a 14-year-old girl. She was unmarried. She was pregnant, And she had just had it. And she said, ‘No, I’m not going to sit in the back of the bus. She’s the forgotten hero,” Glenn continued. “The NAACP, rightly so, said, ‘We can’t use her because America won’t listen. She’s an unwed mother in the 1950′s. That won’t go well. But she’s the real hero.”

“A great story. Our history is so much better when you know the truth. And we have a chance of survival when you know where we make mistakes. And it doesn’t come from a place of anti-Americanism. It doesn’t come from a place of hatred for this country or hatred for the people of the past,” Glenn concluded. “That’s good stuff. And I believe we’re on the verge of that happening all across the country… We’re not that much different. We have a lot more in common than we have separating us. We just have to stop talking about the parties.”

    I liked the real story better, it is not glorious but it does represent Reality!  I have Zero Hatred for Anybody Because of Their Skin Color, but I know that there are those on the other side that Absolutely Don’t Care And Will Have UnWarranted Animousity Against Me…

    Rosa Parks stood-up to the fat, old. white guys.  It was the BITCH-SLAP heard ’round the world.  BATTA-BING!!  Rosa parks was a one hit wonder.  Sometimes it only takes one hit.  Rosa Parks proved that, didn’t she?

    Sammy you’re a creationist, aren’t you?  So how can we take anything you say seriously?  You just disqualified yourself, from the thinking part of the Human race, didn’t you?  Can you “pray-away” global warming for us.  Thank you.

    vacmancan – hahaha!  Some of the most brilliant doctors, inventors, authors, CEOs, astronauts, etc. were creationists.  And so was MLK, Jr.  Get your facts straight before you start trying to discredit brilliant believers!

    Nobody is claiming that Rosa Parks wasn’t valuable.  Just shedding some more information.

    What she did was bold and important.  However, I’m a creationist, so I guess that means that my ideas shouldn’t be valued.  Guess that means Rosa Parks ideas shouldn’t have been valued.  According to your post above Rosa Parks was “disqualified from the thinking part of the Human race” for being Methodist.

  • Stephan Bruno

    Why hasn’t someone caught Glenn Beck naked with a 12 year old boy yet?

  • Michelle Uretsky

    Also, people are not aware what Rosa Parks actually did… and what the back of the bus really wwas.  Rosa Parks was sitting in the MIDDLE of the bus, at the beginning of the “black” section.  And because the “white” section was full, they asked her to move to the back of the bus (which is not a seat–it is the part of the bus that is elevated in the back, normally for nothing, or storage) to give that section to the white people getting on the bus, even though it was the beginning of the “black” section.  She said no.  Rightly so.
    But she wasn’t sitting in the front seat.

    I am not at all taking value away from what she did. That’s not what I am saying. It’s just about presenting the TRUE facts.
    In fact, I think it makes it MORE poignant… the fact that she was following the rules… and was STILL told to move. AND THEN she told them to shove it.

     Do you really want us to pray?  Do you know about Elijah and the Prophets of Baal?  But maybe we don’t need to pray about global warming because we don’t think there is a global warming problem.  We do know that there are greedy people who want to take our money under the guise of cap and trade.

    Mr. Vacman, you must be an “evolutionist” who believes the law of increasing 
    entropy (also known as 2nd law of thermodynamics) works for EVERYTHING else in the world but somehow miraculously disappears when it comes to evolution!! You may want to believe your ancestors are monkeys sir, but Mr. Fisher and myself come from human ancestors.  But that is off topic.  Since this is a thread about the history of Rosa Parks, why are you trying to insult people and bringing up creation?   Without meaning to be insulting or rude to you, if you are so ‘evolved” why can’t you follow the topic?

    Rosa Parks was
    not a simple seamstress whose lonely act of defiance in 1955 sparked the Civil
    Rights Movement. In fact, she was a trained Communist Party (CPUSA) activist.
    Her refusal to move to the back of the bus wasn’t a spontaneous gesture, but a
    provocation organized by her longtime employer, the NAACP. Parks began serving as secretary for the NAACP in 1943
    and still held that position when she was arrested.

    In July 1955, five months before the famous incident in
    December, she attended “Highlander Folk School” in Monteagle Tennessee. Myles Horton and James
    Dombroski, both Communist Party members, started this school in 1932 to train
    Communist activists.
    Rosa Parks and many others had defied the bus segregation laws
    on several occasions since the 1940′s. The Montgomery bus boycott was planned in
    advance. Martin Luther King was brought in to lead it. Rosa Parks was chosen to
    kick it off. (See Aldon Morris, “The Origins of the Civil Rights
    Movement”)

    Martin Luther King privately declared himself a Marxist. He also attended the Highlander School
    and his personal secretaries Bayard Rustin and Jack O’Dell were Communists.

    Have you ever
    heard of the man behind MLK, Stanley Levison? He was King’s speechwriter, as
    well as his top advisor/organizer. Levison was a jewish lawyer from NY and a
    communist party leader in the 50s. MLK’s association with Levison lead Robert
    Kennedy to authorize the FBI’s wire-tapping of King. The fear was that Levison
    was using MLK to create civil unrest, thus helping the communist cause in the
    US.

     In a communist party document entitled “A Racial
    Program for the 20th Century” (1912) Israel Cohen wrote:
    “We must realize that our party’s most powerful weapon is
    racial tension. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for
    centuries they have been oppressed by the whites, we can move them to the
    program of the communist party. In America we will aim for subtle victory. While
    inflaming the Negro minority against whites, we will instill in the whites a
    guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to
    rise to prominence in every walk of life, in the professions, and in the world
    of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to
    intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our
    cause.”

    In June1967, I had just graduated from high school. My dad, grandmother and I were having lunch at the bus station in Klamath Falls, Oregon while waiting for Grandma’s bus. A bus arrived, a young black man came to the restaurant counter. The waitress would not wait on him. I was so provoked by her actions but not bold enough to order a hamburger and give it to him. (Now I would raise a ruckus.) That was my first and only experience with racism, sad that it was in Oregon.

  • Kachina Lively

    I lived in the South in those dark days back in the 50′s and 60′s. There were as Many Whites fighting for the rights of Blacks as Blacks were and I never see a Mention of the Whites that help liberate Blacks. MLK was amazing and he help promote peaceful change, no doubt, and King Obama has no right to even speak his name as far as I am concern since he was in Indonesia during this time. Let’s not forget that the Whites Fought First for America and that is why we are all free, today.

     why does there have do be a difference between creation and evolution?  I am a scholar, and have found that they are not mutually exclusive.  I don’t understand your animosity.  Are believers a threat to you in some way?  It is said that hatred stems from ignorance, so I wonder.
    And if you actually study earth history, you see that the planet goes through cycles of warming and cooling (ie: the ice ages)  throughout its existence.  Humans are having an impact, but it is not as extreme as Al Gore wants you to believe.  The true science says otherwise.  So there you go–your prayers are answered!

    LMAO. Serious?  Where the hell are you reading?  It most definitely IS on topic… and I said not one rude or hateful thing in my message….

  • Michelle Uretsky

    Simply because he hasn’t ever been with a 12 year old boy…. that’s a good probability. lol

  • Michelle Uretsky

    Someone seriously needs to read the ridiculousness that just happened on my original comment.  Am I missing something???

  • Michelle Uretsky

    Okay…. if you were reading my original post as though I am racist, and “believe” in the rules they had back then… of segregation… and am speaking negatively about what they did, that isn’t what I was saying.  Though if that is how you read it, I slightly understand your hateful comment…..
    Allow me to clarify.
    I am not racist.  I do not believe there ever should be or should have been the separation of people.  All I was doing is relating true facts, that Rosa Parks has stated herself… about the fact that she was not actually sitting in the front most seat of the bus…. what was then called “no-mans land” which was behind what they reserved for “white” people… where “anyone” could technically sit… and when the bus was filling up with “white” people, they had asked those (including Rosa) to get up, and give their seats to those people… even though they were sitting where they were “allowed” to sit.
    I also use the quotation marks around things like “white” and “black” and “allowed” because that is how it was back then… not because I refer to African-Americans as “blacks” or Caucasians as “white.”  I am not furthering racism, and am not making these terms up…. I am using the terms as historical context for what facts I was representing… which, if you go Google the interview with Rosa Parks, she has said herself…. that this is how it was.

    I do not see how I was vile or nasty… lol… 

    I also stated that I believe it was more poignant…. because with her actions, she showed the absolute hypocrisy of the entitlement that white people felt they had back in the day to not only make these segregatory rules, but also to throw them out the window at the expense of the minority when they needed to accommodate a white person… that even when someone was following the law, they could be singled out.

    And that Rosa Parks stood up for the bullying of African-Americans everywhere, just as Corina did earlier… and many others had before.

    And it was her will that brought to the public the true issue, and immediately lead to the boycotting of the bus systems everywhere by African-Americans, and then the law being changed.

    In no way was I speaking negatively of what she did.  She is a hero.  So…… yeah.  Still not sure where you are reading…. unless your comment was accidentally added to mine, and not meant for me.

    the fact they needed someone who’d be considered of impeccable character to challenge the law should be no surprise. blacks in this country have always had to be twice as good to get half the credit. same with women.

    Michelle Uretsky, I do not believe comment was meant for you I honestly think it was meant for koralroget7yq with her ad for sex for hire, everyone of us should have the ad for making money online flagged. That is the only comment that was not on the topic of discussion and was solicitation for sex or porno. Why not ask exactly what you wrote that she found offensive or not on subject at hand. I think if you ask and unless you are responsible for posting a comment for sex for hire, or online solicitation for sex or porno then the remark about you being off of topic or nothing to do with subject at hand you should just let it go. But both of you need to quit the back and forth and the person that stated Michelle was off topic and was vile please explain to what you were referring to and clear this up.

    There are at least 2 types of Blacks. The black Muslim and christian black. I don’t like the racial policies that give rise to a federally protected race of people economically and judicially. They talk about equal Justice like a quota system. They talk about economic opportunity while encourage young blacks to have police records and bad credit reports. I sympathize with these mindles blacks who listen to those who inspire them negatively and think that the inspirators themselves should have gone to jail.

    Black history has always been twisted to hide the ugly truth.  African kings and leaders converted to islam and sold their own people into slavery and the very first slave owner in the US was a black man (Anthony Johnson).  The NRA setup a charter to help Blacks protect themselves against the KKK. The Demorats are really good at hiding the truth. Guess that is why MLK was a Republican.

    There was a time in our country when a person of color could not get a decent job, education, or even (believe it or not) be seen on a TV commercial.  Martin Luther King Jr and many, many others fought for those simple rights.  Those things are now available to all.  Great universities are open to all, even with tuition assistance thrown in, Look around your offices: management levels, CEOs, entrepreneurs of all races are in positions, where 40-50 years ago it was unheard of.  TV is open to all people.

    Now: with all those advantantages and leaps in equality, what do we have.  Blacks killing blacks.  Not whites killing whites, but their own kind.  Do we see Al Sharpton going into the ghetto to end the violence?  No.  Do we have skewed accounts on the media of racial injustice?  Yes. 

    I have seen many decades of injustice that I do not want to see relived as a 63 year old woman.  I have friends and relatives of all ages and races.  I admire most.  But am so tired of hearing about racism.  The people of the 60′s and before fought hard to end the injustice only to see it turn against them or used as a crutch.

    Rosa Parks would most likely be ashamed.  Those men and women who were really discriminated against in unfathonable ways would laugh at what is considered “racism”.  There are so many opportunities for those in this country of all races. Stop using racism as an excuse for everything.  Take responsibility for your own life and your own future.

    You’re being suckered by “bot spam”. Did you notice the advertisement contained in the comment? They’re all over the Internet anymore. A lot of times, here on Beck’s website, they just take a random section of someone else’s comment and piece it in. Other times it’s a generic response that could be applied to any number of comments, but doesn’t always make sense in response to the comment it follows.

    That comment that upset you – trust me, it was a “bot” (automatically generated by programs) advertisement. Nothing personal. And the best response is no response. Just flag the comment. Or, if you feel so compelled, reply to the comment by identifying it as bot spam or an advertisement so that others know what it is.

    The NAACP, Jackson, Sharpton, and all the other race-hustling clowns are a disgrace compared to the noble civil rights activists of 50 years ago.

    I am a Glen Beck fan, but I find it funny that he brings this up the same week as this same story is brought up on an HBO show “Newsroom”. The main character, Will McAvoy played by Jeff Daniels, tells this exact same story on Sunday night’s episode.

    Most people also don’t realize that the whole thing was staged and that Rosa Parks was a Communist.

    The Left has built this myth that it was some kind of spontaneous act, when nothing could be further from the truth.

    This made for a very entertaining thread. Way to go Michelle!! 

    But I want to thank you for that insight on Rosa Parks. That was very interesting and I so appreciated it.

    Good that you brought those facts, but the way the conservatives think today, you are giving them more “ammunitions” to “twist” the positive of the Civil Rights movement. I am sure that there will be a few “nut crackers” from the right that would start telling other stories and use this to trash the Civil Rights movement. So, good for you for your knowledge of history facts, but like my grandfather used to tell me . . . “sometimes is better not to tell the whole story”. Blessings to you . . .

    Sweetheart you claimed there are 2 types of blacks and both are religious in nature.  Don’t you realize that religion is the root of all evil?  God is a joke and you’re the punch line.  BATTA-BING!!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZSh6V-QilY

    Sweetheart, when you deny science, and when you believe in bronze age myths, and things that don’t exist, how can I value your opinion?  I hope you don’t have any kids that you’re trying to teach this crap too, do you?  When you teach your kids that the world is only 10,000 years old that’s child abuse. Isn’t it?

    Sweetheart,  You sound like a real “KOCH-SUCKER” who supports the Koch brothers, the 1%, and the fossil fuel industry?  Why do you have to embarrass yourself and your family by being a “KOCH-SUCKER?”  Can you explain that to me?  Thank you.

    Sweetheart don’t make a fool out of yourself by posting something that was written by guys who didn’t know where the sun went at night.  Look to science and things that are real, not biblical bullshit.

    Sweetheart, it seems you have the idea that when you die you go somewhere, am I right?  Do you have any proof?  Of course not, but still you believe, isn’t that’s sad?

    Sammy I’m saying rosa parks should have spit in this guys face, and then, she should have kicked him in the balls.  Any questions?  I didn’t think so.  I’m sure you feel the same way, don’t you?  BATTA-BING!!

    Sweetheart you went too far!!!  you said “maybe we don’t need to pray-away global warming because we don’t think………………………”  You should have stopped right there.  But you’re right, people who don’t believe in global warming don’t think, thank you for proving that.  BATTA-BING!!  Now watch my show and I’ll teach you more.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZSh6V-QilY

    Message to Bill Marriott- August 5, 2013
    As our country will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the march on Washington at the end of this month much discussion will be centered on Martin Luther King and his dreams…
    However; out on the front lines have been woman like myself who have been fighting for equal rights and equal pay for women too long.
    Aviatrix Bessie Colman fought discrimination also…She however was fighting on two fronts, instead of one-being a woman and black..
    (Great read for this summer…half hour at the most…Bessie Coleman -Daring Stunt Pilot by Trina Robbins available on Amazon)
    She had one other strike against her…She came from humble beginnings…but my God she walked 9 miles everyday to school just to learn how to fly…and the saddest part of her story she had to take pilot lessons in France, because no one in America would train a black woman to fly….We’ve come a long way but we need to go further…
    2016 is going to be an interesting election…and I’lll wager that we have our first woman President…I don’t gamble, with money so this would have to be a friendly wager…maybe a shared root-beer with you, Donna and Debbie and my Robert, and Christine, Billy and the rest of my family in front of the Washington Monument for the winner…Mr Marriott you can help us woman go further…how about that for your legacy… – See more at: http://www.blogs.marriott.com/marriott-on-the-move/2013/08/those-angry-days.html#sthash.D5Hrjpfb.dpuf

    It is widely known that the NAACP passed on the 14-year old because her character would have been questioned…in 1950s America, the discussion would have been about who knocked her up. The next story rejected prior to that of Rosa Parks also involved someone of questionable character.

    I’m sorry to tell you this, but that’s an ignorant thing to say.  You may want to stop assuming you know what other political parties would do with whatever information.  I happen to be a Republican.  And there’-s nothing that I said that would be used as “ammunition.”  You may stop trying to generalize about other parties…. cause if you really aren’t of that party, you don’t know.
    I’m not trying to be rude… just let you know that all these generalizations of one party from another are really dumb and inadequate.

  • Michelle Uretsky

    Just because your comment also showed up on my string, under a different name.. but it was the same comment I saw you made to Stephen Bruno.

  • Michelle Uretsky

    It was your same comment that you posted to Stephen Bruno, this other name re-posted it to me.

    Well…. for the part that states Rosa was not sitting in the front… you can search Rosa Parks interview.  She will tell you herself.
    And as for the back of the bus…. 
    Allow me to…. clarify my original post.

    Yes, the back of the bus had seats.  Where Parks was sitting was basically called “no man’s land”… that was basically for when the “white” and “black” portions of the bus were completely filled, it was a couple rows that were behind the “white” portion and in front of the “black” portion… that served as a buffer between the two parts of the bus, BUT IF IN THE EVENT the other parts were full, people could start sitting there, regardless of color.  However, bus drivers often told African-Americans to move if more white people were getting on… And in the case that all of the “black” section was taken, the only thing left was to stand, or sit on the elevated non-seats of the bus, which is much like an older-style RV above the cockpit, or in the back that is lifted up… where it’s not really seating… just this elevated board of sorts….

    Yes, the back of the bus had seating….
    But when that portion was taken, as it was (considering why Rosa Parks was sitting in “No Man’s Land,” her option would have been to sit on that portion of the bus, or stand.

    And working for bus companies, that portion of the bus can be over either the gasoline tanks, the wheels, or the engine compartment.  Depending on the bus.

    Rosa Parks Interview: http://www.achievement.org/autodoc/page/par0int-1

    And it is totally sad that I cannot remember what book I was reading in college about this that talked about the uncomfortable “seating” that was left when the “black” portion was taken up and “No Man’s Land” was being given to the “white” people.  I wish I could tell you that cite.  I apologize.  Maybe do a little digging and you can find it….

    It is refreshing to see someone admit they are a “monkey’s uncle” and proud of it!!  While you and Koko celebrate your family reunions, I will celebrate them with my human cousins.   You “toss” around the old talking points but of course you neglect to address the  “law of increasing 

    entropy (also known as 2nd law of thermodynamics) works for EVERYTHING else in the world but somehow miraculously disappears when it comes to evolution!!”  But I have found science and facts are never a big deal to evolutionists, they ignore them and resort to “billions of years ago…”  They will never admit they only are relying on someone else’s theory that something happened billions of years ago (called faith) and can never give proof of a new species being “created” from another species like Darwin theorized. (That’s right, it is called Darwin’s THEORY of Evolution )

    Sweetheart you seem to know a lot about thermodynamics.  Are you referring to the 2nd law of thermodynamics in a closed system, or an open one?  Be specific, and please post your sources, thank you.

    Please, explain how the both the “open” and “closed” systems and the 2nd law of thermodynamics are compatible with evolution THEORY.   Post me sources for a question to you? Well, that would be…Me!! I AM the source of the question.  And being specific, you are going to  explain to us on this thread how the “law of increasing  entropy (also known as 2nd law of thermodynamics) works (both open and closed systems)  for EVERYTHING else in the world but somehow miraculously disappears when it comes to evolution!!”

    The young lady’s name is Claudette Colvin and she was born on Sept.5,1939.The incident on a Montgomery,Alabama bus occurred on March 2,1955.That means she was 16 years old.She refused to move from the middle of the bus and was handcuffed,arrested and forcibly removed from the bus.

    She was also one of 4 Black women who challenged the bus segregation laws before the Supreme Court,which were struck down later that same year.
