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."

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
