USDA taxpayer funded cultural “sensitivity training”

Read the full report on this story on TheBlaze HERE. Glenn encouraged listeners and viewers to contact their Congressmen to make sure they are aware of this story. You can find the contact information for your legislators by going HERE.

Last May it was revealed that the USDA spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on cultural sensitivity training. Now video of the shameful event has been released and you can hear government employees basically being taught to be racist, repeating bizarre claims such as the Pilgrims being illegal immigrants. Glenn calls it one of the worst videos he’s ever seen and says we should call Congress to get them to halt funding ASAP. Share this story, get it viral and hopefully put an end to this total misuse of taxpayer funds.

TheBlaze reported:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is coming under fire for hosting a “compulsory”*  ”Cultural Sensitivity Training” program that required some intriguing participation of those in attendance. In addition to being implored to bang on tables, everyone in the room was instructed to chant, in unison, “The pilgrims were illegal aliens.”

But that’s not the full extent of the curious elements surrounding the session, as the lead trainer also joked that he doesn’t like the word “minorities” and that he prefers to replace it with “emerging majorities.”

After nine months of waiting for the government to release the video content, clips of the three-hour session were published this week by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group. It was on May 18, 2012, that the organization first made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to secure the footage.

In the videos, sensitivity trainer Samuel Betances is shown encouraging the audiences to repeat phrases like "The pilgrims were illegal aliens" and "America was founded by outsiders who are today's insiders". He appears to endorse illegal immigration and notes that the pilgrims were never asked to give their passports to the Native Americans.

TheBlaze noted that Betances and his firm were paid $200,000 in 2011 and 2012 for their participation at the sensitivity training by the USDA.

"I get up and I walk out," Glenn said after listening to the audio. "You know why these people don't? Because their jobs depend on it. You know why these people don't get up? Their jobs depend on it and they're like, 'You know what? It's just not worth it. I'm just going to say the damn thing.' I'm telling you you are slipping into dangerous territory. If your unions are doing this or your government is doing this, you get up and walk out. You get up and walk out. And if the media won't show it, then you got a bigger ass problem. You walk out and you come to my studio. You might lose your job. You know, we all have to decide: What is worth it? In the end of the day, what will we be remembered for? Who were we as individuals? Who are we? What do we stand for? What do you really believe? What are you willing to do for stupid money? I've been broke, man, and I know how hard it is. But in the end of it, the only thing you have is your word. That's the only thing you have is your word. And when you lose your honor and you lose your word, you know that's the most valuable thing and you spend the rest of your life trying to get it back. What are you willing to say? Listen to what these people are willing to say for money."

"I cannot think of anything I've ever heard from the federal government that is more outrageous than this, and I've heard a lot."

"This is an outrage. This is an outrage. This should get to every congressman. This, until they pull all of this and make sure that they rout it out and make sure that it's not in any other department, any other cabinet position, this should have the funding pulled from the USDA. The funding should be pulled. Every congressman should get a copy of this," Glenn said.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
