FAIL: Group attempts to rehabilitate the swastika

On Glenn’s radio program this morning, The Blaze’s Robin Walensky reported on story about a pro-swastika banner that flew over a New York City beach this weekend.

“And a swastika banner flies over a New York City beach,” Walensky said. “New Yorkers stunned to see it. The enormous sign sponsored by ProSwastika.org. It shows the Jewish Star of David with a swastika in the middle of it.”

The Huffington Post released a story last week in advance of Swastika Rehabilitation Day (June 23) that included a propaganda video from the pro-swastika group.

“Today it is shunned in the West due to a lack of understanding of the swastika's true origins, but mainly because it was hijacked by the Nazis which gave the swastika a tarnished reputation which it does not deserve,” the video explains.

The nearly five minute video also discusses the peaceful origins of the symbol, and how for thousands of years the swastika appeared on Hindu and Buddhist temples, in Native American artwork, and Jewish synagogues in Israel.

“Can you imagine getting that e-mail as a voiceover person that this is your gig for the day,” Stu asked. “Like you're voicing swastika rehabilitation propaganda… The economy must suck if people are taking those gigs.”

Regardless of its peaceful origins, it is nearly impossible to imagine a world in which the swastika is associated with anything other than the Nazi party and its atrocities.

“I was giving a talk to a group, a small group a couple of weeks ago, and I brought in a book and it has a swastika on the back – on the cover – on the spine,” Glenn added.

“And I put my hand over the titles of the book. I said, ‘good book or bad book?’ All of them, all of them said bad book. It was Rudyard Kipling. Rudyard Kipling used to use the swastika, before the Nazis used it, as a good thing. He had to have it all removed off of all of his books and he was very upset.”

“I mean, I understand its heritage, I understand yada, yada, yada, but really I don't think you come back from the whole gas chamber thing on any kind of symbol,” Glenn concluded.

“You kind of close the door on the swastika.”

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

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."
