Glenn interviews Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach about immigration protest

On radio yesterday, Glenn shared the story of Kansas State Attorney General Kris Kobach who was targeted over the weekend by members of the pro-immigration reform group Sunflower Community Action Network.

Protestors marched on Kobach’s home on Saturday, leaving behind a pile of shoes “of the fathers he’s deported.” Kobach was targeted because he is considered the architect of Arizona’s immigration law.

This morning, Glenn interviewed Kobach about the incident.

“He is a very brave man and leading the way to stand against illegal immigration. Not against immigration. Against illegal immigration,” Glenn said of Kobach. “He is leading the way. Kansas is now the only state, I believe left, where you are forced to produce identification to go vote. This Supreme Court yesterday overturned the Arizona case. It's crazy. It is absolutely crazy.”

Fortunately for Kobach and his family, when the some 700 organized protestors descended on his home on Saturday, he was not home.

“I just really feel blessed we weren't home, because I've got four young daughters, aged 9 and younger, and they would have been absolutely terrified,” Kobach said. “This would have been sort of a scarring event in their lives, seeing people, a mob descend on our house with megaphones and signs.”

Like Glenn began to explain yesterday, Kobach reiterated that the Sunflower Community Action Network is a well-organized and well-funded group that has won grants from progressive foundations for its work for economic and social justice.

“Well, the organizers of the rally - first of all, they spent a lot of money on this, or the mob action, whatever you want to call it. They had four buses, presumably rented or purchased, they brought in a busload of people all the way from Wichita, about three hours from the Kansas City metro area,” he explained. “It's called the Sunflower Community Action Network, an organization that sprung up right as ACORN folded its tent in Kansas and it appears to have the same leadership and structure.”

While the media has largely ignored this story, the limited coverage has so far painted the perpetrators as innocent protestors.

“But I want to share something with your listeners,” Kobach said. “In the left wing media has, in response to this said, ‘Oh, there's nothing to worry about. These are just protesters.’ No, these aren't protesters. These are people who have an audience of one. If they were protesting, wanting to get exposure to the public media, they would be in front of my office building. But no, they went to a quiet suburban neighborhood, stood in front of my house. No one else had to hear them, except for a few neighbors. They were trying to intimidate.”

Just as with any immigration conversation, there is an important and necessary distinction to be made between those that choose to enter the United States legally and those that do so illegally.

“Think about the brazenness of what these members of this mob are doing. The ones who are illegal aliens, they are saying: let's break the law and enter the United States illegally, then let's trespass on this elected official's property and there are a number of other criminal threats that also apply, and then let's demand amnesty,” Kobach said. “So we'll break all kind of state and federal laws, then while standing on the front porch of an elected person's house, we are going to demand through a megaphone that we be given amnesty.”

Kobach made it clear that he will not back down from his position on illegal immigration, and he challenged other elected officials to also be steadfast in their convictions.

“Our whole system depends upon elected officials responding to the needs of their constituents and not being threatened as so often happens in a third world country,” he said. “This gets to the very core of what our American system depends on, and that is we don't have mobs, we don't have this kind of pressure put on decision-makers.”

“I appreciate your bravery, Kris, and I feel for your family and your children. I really do,” Glenn said. “I know what you are going through, and you just do all that you can do. Do all that you can do. It's worth it in the end.”

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
