Caught on tape: Philadelphia Eagle drops the N-word at a concert

Philadelphia Eagle wide receiver Riley Cooper is in some serious hot water after being caught on camera using the N-word during an angry outburst at a recent Kenny Chesney concert. Cooper has since apologized and accepted a fine from the NFL, but this is not the end of the issue as some people are calling for his days in the NFL to be over.

“He's a Philadelphia Eagles player, he went to a Kenny Chesney concert, apparently got in a fight out in the parking lot a little bit potentially, went inside, had an altercation with a black security guard and was angry and on a camera phone used the N word in his anger,” Stu explained on radio this morning. “Obviously horrible and nobody's happy about it, including seemingly him who has, you know, been very apologetic about it.”

Considering Cooper has apologized and taken full responsibility for his actions, you would think this story would be over and done with– but political correctness has once again run amuck with many calling for Cooper’s head.

Stu, however, was able to share a remarkably refreshing piece of audio from the NFL Network. While flipping channels last night, he was treated to this commentary on “race relations” from Dr. Harry Edwards, a sociology professor at the University of California.

NFL NETWORK: If you had a chance to talk to Riley Cooper right now, a chance to advise him, what would you say?

EDWARDS: Well, I would wish him well. I would be more interested in talking to the Eagles team because it is they who will determine the outcome of this thing more than anybody else. They have a choice now between becoming frayed and divided and confused and falling apart as opposed to choosing not to be offended any longer by this situation. This is something that African Americans do quite frequently. They choose not to be offended when the N bomb comes up in a personal conversation between blacks. They choose not to be offended when they hear it on rap records. They choose not to be offended when black comedians use it in some of the most vicious and degrading types of scenarios. We simply choose not to be offended. And I think that that's the choice that this team is confronted with, the team leaders. African American team leaders have to step up and accept that apology which seems to be heartfelt, which seemed to be sincere and we have to move on.

“Thank you. This guy is in Berkeley,” Glenn asked. “How did he get in? He's going to lose his job. I hope he has tenure.”

“You want to talk about taking power back from that word,” Stu said. “That is how you do it. You sit there and you are not offended by it. You let it go. You don't let it change your life and make you angry.”

 

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."
