Bill O'Reilly continues to take on the race-baiters

Earlier this week, Glenn covered Bill O’Reilly’s headline grabbing ‘Talking Points Memo’ about the dire problems facing blacks in America. Chief among those problems is the breakdown of the familial unit and the consequences that has on children. His analysis was spot on, but that hasn’t stopped the race-baiters from piling on.

“I want to play just the opening couple of minutes here of the O'Reilly Factor last night,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “O'Reilly has been going off on the race‑baiters, and it is getting to be insane. I want to play the opening couple of minutes for you here in his Talking Points Memo where he was talking about the latest on what people are now saying on television and on radio. Race, I guess, leaders of their race – if that's not racist.”

In last night’s Memo, O’Reilly highlighted Georgetown University professor and MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson, whose ridiculous and downright offensive comments were played on the Glenn Beck Radio Program on Tuesday. Among other things, Dyson accused O’Reilly of being “surprised black people don’t throw bananas at each other or swing from trees.” Last night, O’Reilly responded:

O'REILLY: Instead of trying to come up with solutions to the disproportionate amount of violent crime caused by young African‑American men, the catastrophic high school dropout rate in the inner city, and the destruction of the traditional black family, the race‑hustlers and their sympathizers have descended into the gutter. Top gun in this tawdry display: Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson.

DYSON: We can indict the white family. There’s a lot of negativity, there’s a lot of dismissiveness, there’s a lot of crass materialism that refuses to care for the other. We can talk about the pathology at the heart of the white family.

O'REILLY: Georgetown must be very proud.

Perhaps more egregious, however, is the commentary O’Reilly unearthed from Louisiana State Representative Monique Davis, who blamed police officers for the death of black children.

O’REILLY: It gets worse. Speaking about the epidemic of murder committed by black killers in Chicago, Illinois State Representative Monique Davis said this.

DAVIS: I'm going to tell you what some suspicions have been and people have whispered to me. They're not sure that black people are shooting all of these children. There's some suspicion, and I don't want to spread this but I'm just going to tell you what I've been hearing. They suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.

“Oh, my gosh,” Glenn said. “That is a representative in the State of Illinois, on radio… This is how crazy people are getting. And why?”

“Because [O’Reilly is] speaking the statistical truth,” Pat responded.

Dyson and Rep. Davis are so desperate to make this a racist issue, painting O’Reilly as a bigot who is unqualified to speak about issues within the black community. In reality, as Glenn points out, the breakdown of the family is a national issue that transcends race.

“Dads are absent,” Glenn said matter-of-factly. “And is the white family perfect? No. The white family is disintegrating as well. It is our families. That is the answer to all of our problems, political, everything. It is our families. And if we don't put the damn cellphones down; if we don't put the computers down; if we don't start to connect with one another; if we don't stop taking our kids to everything that all of their friends do. ’Well, they're in karate, and they're in soccer, and they're in football, and they're in ballet, and they're in art school, and they're in this, and they're in that.’ Stop it. Stop it. What is wrong with us? Stop it. Now, obviously I'm speaking with passion because my family is at stake too. All of our families are at stake.”

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
