WATCH: Glenn explains the 'anatomy of a racist'

On tonight's Glenn Beck Program, Glenn took an in-depth look at the 'anatomy of a racist.' Who are these people? And what do they all have in common? Using history as a guide, Glenn sought to find patterns that connect the likes of Adolf Hitler, Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, and others in their tremendous hate.

To begin, Glenn looked back at July 13, 2013 - the day George Zimmerman was acquitted of second degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, bringing an end to the year long battle that nearly split the country. He explained that when you read history,  you will see that dividing the country is exactly what these people wanted to do. The media sensationalized the story and turned it into a clash of the races in an attempt to  to stir up old animosities.

In addition to the media, "leaders" of the black community like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton tried to say the case was about of civil rights, that it was about racial justice, that it was about gun control. They said it was about everything except for what it should have been about: a tragic accident involving two men, one night in Florida. President Obama only added to this controversy when he first said that Trayvon Martin could have been his son, and then, in the aftermath of the verdict, said Trayvon Martin could have been him.

So why are racist allegations being thrown at anyone who dared to judge the case by its facts? Why was race made a central issue, when the jury, judge, defense, and others said that it was not? How do you identify a real racist? That is where history comes into play.

Adolf Hitler, Louis Farrakhan, and David Duke were three very different men, with three very different lives. But they do have three things in common:

  1. The collective: They don't see individuals. They only see groups.
  2. They are unable to judge a situation fairly or objectively
  3. They seek power by creating conflict and dividing people for personal gain.

It is these characteristics, Glenn contends, that define a racist. Listening to the countless soundbites Glenn compiled, it became abundantly clear that it is not who you hate that unites racists but how and why you hate.

Using the case studies of Hitler, Farrakhan, and Duke a clear pattern begins emerges. Glenn referred to this pattern as the "Cycle of Hate," which has four distinct parts:

  1. An event
  2. Planting the seeds of discord
  3. Crisis
  4. A race war/conflict

"Now you know the anatomy of a racist," Glenn said.

While it is easy to look at the Nazis, the Holocaust, or the KKK and think that something like that could never happen today, racism (as evidenced by the Zimmerman trial) persists in this country. If nothing else, Glenn sought to provide a historical context for what we witnessed in the aftermath of Zimmerman's acquittal and what it could lead to if we are not vigilant.

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.
