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.

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
