MRC TV: Are voter I.D. laws racist?

MRC TV just released a video debunking the recent claims that voter I.D. laws are racist.

Last week, The Blaze reported that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People traveled to Geneva to appeal to the United Nations Human Rights Council for help in fighting oter identification laws in the United States.

 

“Supposedly that’s disenfranchising voters and especially minorities,” Pat said.

 

NAACP President Ben Jealous was among those who appealed to the UN. He told reporters that part of their goal was to “shame them,” and claimed something to the effect of as many as 75% of black men don’t have an I.D. in states like Wisconsin, therefor America is being racist for instituting these laws.

 

 

“Well, the Media Research Center went out and started asking African Americans, ‘Do you think you need to have an I.D. to be able to vote?’ Listen,” Glenn said.

 

 

Common sense prevailed, and, of course, most of the Americans that they spoke to said ‘yes, they do think that they should have an I.D. to vote.’ One response even replied, “I don’t think it’s prejudice at all. I mean it’s pretty standard. You have to have an I.D. in America—whether you’re black, white, Indian—it doesn’t really matter.”

 

“Can you imagine being put in this position where you are being used for someone else’s gain?” Glenn asked after the audio had stopped.

 

Glenn pointed out that the left continues to do this with minorities, and gave the example of the Trayvon Martin case. He pointed to the example of Pastor C.L. Bryant, a former leader of the NAACP who is very outspoken on the issue of the left using minorities to push their own agenda, coming out last week condemning how the death of the seventeen year old was being turned into a political debate and a racial issue.

 

Other African American leaders have made similar statements on the issue as well. “The former head of the Black Panthers—the old Black Panthers has come out now against the New Black Panthers and said you need to be for something,” Glenn pointed out. “Think of this. The Black Panthers used to be for black power. You guys, the new Black Panthers, you're anti-white. That's all that is,” Glenn said, summarizing the statement their former leader made.

 

Stu gave Glenn the stats on the issue to further point out how agenda driven these talking points are. “The polling backs it up,” Stu said. “By a margin of 62% to 29%, black Americans say I want photo I.D. at the polls, not just I.D. Overall the percentage for all Americans is 70% to 18% in favor of photo I.D. at the polls.”

 

Pat noted the talking points of Wasserman-Schultz on the issue, who complained that getting a photo I.D. “takes effort” and “there’s cost involved.”

 

“Excuse me? It’s a privilege,” Glenn said.

 

“Since when were we promised citizenship would be effortless? Never,” Pat added.

 

“These are the people that constantly are berating us about tens of thousands of pages of new regulations,” Stu pointed out. “You can’t open up a business. It takes months of time to open up a business and do your basic human functions and, yet, here we are, this one thing that’s so critical to the basis of our entire country, and you can’t get an I.D.?” Later adding, “It is so insulting to African Americans.”

 

“It is insulting to immigrants as well,” Glenn said. Glenn went on to point out what his wife’s family went through when they came to the United States from Italy.

 

“They knew it was a privilege, and the people that come through the doors [of America] the right way are not looking for free stuff, but they want a part of the American dream. They want to make sure they’re living by the law as well. They understand that it’s a privilege, because it’s a privilege they don’t have in their own country,” Glenn said.

 

Stu went back to the stats, noting that virtually no group appears to disagree with voter I.D. laws. “Democrats are 63% to 28% in favor, so even Democrats and liberals are completely on board with this.”

 

“That’s a pretty good indication of why Ben Jealous and the NAACP took this to the UN, because he no chance of winning this with the American people,” Pat said.

 

Glenn brought up how the rest of the world must view these issues, and pointed out that the ‘global opinion’ is why these far left groups go to global courts and councils despite their lack of power over our laws. Foreign governments use these examples to paint America as evil, and to enforce their regulations.

 

“Think about the way Americans are being portrayed in the rest of the world,” Glenn said.

 

“They have no idea who we are. Think about going into another country and saying ‘I’m a member of the Tea Party,’ and what they must think. Because, all they get is the impression from our media and theirs.”

 

Glenn next brought up the shooting in Florida again, describing how it is probably a big story about America overseas. “They love these kinds of stories, because they don't have guns. That's why their media, their elites, their governments, loves these types of stories.”

 

“When all we’ve done as a country is stop these injustices that mainly came to us from Europe,” Stu said. “We’ve gone around the world trying to stop horrible genocides in other countries that have done terrible things to their own people.”

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
