On Tuesday, Glenn played portions of audio from the 2014 White Privilege Conference in which some 2,400 educators and students were taught that racism was first invented in the American colonies. Furthermore, speakers at the conference claimed “racism is central to America;” “the longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become;” and “this country was built on white principles for white people.”
This audio was captured by ProgressivesToday.com – a collaboration between Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit and EAG News’ Kyle Olson of EAG News – and the website plans to release their reports as part of a four-part series. Olson is also the co-author of Glenn’s new book CONFORM: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education.
On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to some of the shocking audio from part two of the ProgressivesToday.com report. In the compilation clip, University of Iowa Professor Adrien Wing tells the audience “you can’t just look at the face” before slamming President Obama and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Wing goes on to call the President “the face of global White privilege.” Furthermore, Kankakee Community College Professor Stephanie Baran declared capitalism perpetuates white supremacy and privilege, in addition to racism and sexism.

Glenn, Pat, and Stu were particularly struck by the persistent mentions of tenure by the various speakers. Considering some speakers at the conference stopped just short of advocating for book burning, you have to wonder whose freedom of thought and speech these educators are interested in protecting.
“How she can be protected for unpopular speech at the same time is talking about banning speech,” Stu asked.
“It is just their speech that they are trying to protect. I got news for you. Why do you have the rise of neo-Nazis in Germany? Why are you having that? Because you can’t talk about it,” Glenn explained. “I mean listen to them! There are things that you can’t talk about, but we can talk about sex with our third graders. We have to talk about it. You can’t talk about Nazis. You can’t talk about racism… You can’t put your finger in the position of a gun… You can’t have a t-shirt… that says the NRA because it’s too powerful… But let’s hand out condoms to kids.”
Glenn believes it will take a Third Great Awakening to right the wrongs of our current society, but the longer we wait, the harder it will be. Glenn has literally been at rock bottom with the decision to die physically or die and be reborn, and he chose rebirth. What will we choose?
“It will be the Third Great Awakening that ends this again… Until you connect with a higher power, we’re going to keep going down this this road and it ends in a cliff. And then when our broken bodies are down at the bottom of that cliff, then we’re going to say, ‘There’s nothing else.’ Everybody cries out for God when they are completely broken,” Glenn said. “I’ve lost my family. I’ve lost everything. And I had a choice: Die physically or die and be reborn. I chose to be reborn.”
After making that decision, Glenn admitted he did not wake up the next day and find everything to be A-Okay, but he made the decision to commit himself to a new path and, with time, things began to work themselves out.
“It’s easy to check out. It really is. And it’s easy to get depressed. And that’s what happens when you’re on the ground and you’re like, ‘There’s nothing I can do. I’m over. It’s over,’” Glenn concluded. “And then you choose life. And it takes you a while, but, before long, you’re not afraid of anything. And you know it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if I lose everything again. I don’t care. I will not lose my soul. I will stand. My family will be proud of what their grandfather did. They will be proud.”
