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.

Watch the video from one of the more controversial portions of the meeting below:

"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.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

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.
