Haters gotta hate: No love from the left for black conservatives

Glenn took a call during this morning's radio program from someone the left likes to pretend doesn't exist: an African American who is opposed to the policies of Barack Obama and bigger government.

Russ, from Connecticut, is in his mid-40's and grew up in a time when a lot of people living in his community were dependent on the government to get by.

"In my community you have a lot of people on welfare, a lot of people were dependent on the government.  And at some point people were skeptical, but over time you have more people who were dependent on the government," Russ explained to Glenn.

Russ believes that dependency lead most of those individuals to trusting the government — thinking it was "their friend".

"I think that's what Barack Obama is trying to do now," he said. "Basically get more people trusting the government who are dependent on him saying, 'look, we're your friend. We're here for you.' Look at what it's don't to the black community?"

He went on to point out that 90% vote Democrat.

"When he first came out, during his first election, he said something critical about black men. He said they need to take care of their kids."

After Barack Obama made that statement, Russ noted that he was attack by Jesse Jackson on cable news.

"You step out of line and start talking about personal responsibility and they [the far left] snap you back," Russ added.

The same figures snapping at anyone preaching personal responsibility are the same ones complaining about how bad government is. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, even Reverend Wright — they all like to point a finger at big government…until that government check comes through, Russ noted.

"Once they write that check, they're good," he said.

Russ's main point was this: 90% of the black community is voting for Democrats, but they haven't delivered anything but food stamps, government housing, and welfare for as long as her could remember. Combine that with a horrible public education system teaching kids to look to the government when you need help.

People who do know the truth need to start speaking up, Glenn noted. He told Russ that he no longer cares what the media says about him — it's time people are no longer afraid of what is going to be said about them if they're on the side of the truth.

Deion Sanders experienced the media backlash of standing with a conservative . Sanders, who didn't do or say anything politically charged, simply tweeted out a picture with Glenn when he saw him in the Dallas studios one day last week. Since then, he has been on the receiving end of an enormous amount of backlash from the left on twitter.

They've tried to make him into a horrible person because he was standing next to "racist" Glenn Beck. The comments that have been made about him and tweeted to him on Twitter have been nasty. Twitchy highlights a few of the attacks HERE.

It seems that the "diversity" the left is always promoting does not apply outside of their particular narratives.

"People have to realize that our freedom is at stake and that we are going to lose money, we are going to — we're going to be broke in the end and we're going to — we're not going to have a reputation in the end," Glenn said. "But that happens, whether you stand or not.  I would rather be free with nothing than beholden to somebody."

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
