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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
