Parallel universe? France leading the way on Libya

While President Obama fills out his March Madness bracket, the rest of the world is scrambling to fill the void in leadership. Glenn felt like he was in Bizzaro World on radio this morning as he tried to figure out how France became the voice of global authority.

Remember how Glenn has said that a year from now you won’t recognize America? It seems like that prediction is starting to come true.

“I want to tell you about the U.N. Security Council. They voted last night to now okay a no‑flyover zone. To do that, you have to take out the air defenses of Libya. We are basically, in many ways, declaring war in Libya,” Glenn said.

“You must go in and take those things out. If I would have told you a year ago, six months ago, that France would be leading the way along with the UK and that France would be saying ‘I can't even understand America. What are they doing?’ And France is beginning the bombing today, would you have said I was crazy?” Glenn asked.

“No, usually by now, France would have surrendered to Libya,” Pat joked.

“Why is France and the UK going after this with Libya? Because they have three percent of the world's oil and most of the Libyan oil goes to Europe. If Libya's oil goes away they are now beholden, self‑choices, they made all their choices themselves, but they will then be he beholden to Russia. This is so clear,” Glenn said.

“Now I warned against this last night to say, you know, the time to go and have a no‑fly zone was right away. I showed you why I believe the President didn't. We are changing our allies in our country. We are no longer on the‑‑ I don't believe we're on the right side. We're claiming to be, but all of the actions are that we're not.”

“We have dissed the UK. We have done the same thing to Benjamin Netanyahu. We are clearly, clearly, I believe, in our actions against the country of Israel.”

“I believe you will see people like Ahmadinejad use this and they just want the oil. They're going to steal the oil,” Glenn said.

“People like Ahmadinejad will use this to cause uprisings in Europe. You already have the extreme Islamists going after Europe. You have civil unrest from time to time with the Islamic communities in those two countries, and I've told you before. When the labor unions and the communists bind together with the Islamists in Europe, lights out.”

As Glenn was talking, news broke that a cease fire had been declared by Libya.

“Surely, we can trust Moammar Gadhafi on his promise of a cease‑fire. Because I've heard, Cass Sunstein and George Soros, they helped with the campaign to teach us all that we can trust him. He's an ally. He's a good guy and Jeremiah Wright says so, too. So and Lewis Farrakhan says so, too,” Glenn said.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."
