Glenn weighs in on Trayvon Martin murder, "Stand Your Ground" laws

On radio today, Glenn discussed the tragic shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed African American teen who was shot and killed by neighborhood watch member George Zimmerman. As more and more evidence emerges, it appears that Zimmerman may have been motivated by race to pursue Martin, yet he remains free in Florida under a "stand your ground" law.

"It appears to be that he was shot by a racist," Glenn said, "Things are coming out now and phone recordings, et cetera, et cetera, and the guy looks like he just killed this kid, maybe because he's a racist."

Glenn noted that no evidence that he has seen points to Martin as having been the agressor.

But while Glenn says justice needs to be served, he sees progressive organizations using this to push their agenda.

"It looks like this kid was killed in cold blood. So, justice needs to be done, but now we have this extremist African-American militia group that says they're just going to come in and handle it. You're got Al Sharpton winding everybody up. You've got Color For Change winding everybody up. You've got it already in the Occupy movement," Glenn said.

"This guy is going to be the poster child for police brutality and racism, even though their charge on the police is that they did a sloppy job," Glenn explained.

While the police in Florida are coming under scrutiny for not arresting Zimmerman, they were in no way involved with the killing of Martin. Zimmerman was not a police officer.

"They don't care about the facts. All they care about is can I use it to further my own agenda." Glenn said.

"If their goal is actually justice, there's no need to wind people up. We're all with you on that. Everybody on the right is standing with you," Stu explained.

"We're with you," Glenn added.

Glenn then took a call from Floridian Brett, who said that the left will use this to squash "Stand your ground" laws. According to the AP, "Florida is among 21 states with a 'Stand Your Ground Law,' which gives people wide latitude to use deadly force rather than retreat during a fight. The self-defense law helps explain why a neighborhood watch captain has not been arrested in the shooting death of an unarmed teenager."

"It doesn't apply.  You can't just go follow somebody down the street and claim the 'Stand Your Ground' law," Glenn said.

"With everything that is going on right now, the last thing you want is to have people disempower you anymore.  You have to have a rate to stand your ground.  You have to have a right to say this is my property.  You are in violation.  Not to be able to shoot people but to protect yourself and that doesn't include going down the street and following the guy a block.  That's not what you do," Glenn said.

 

 

 

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
