This is what racism looks like to Oprah

Oprah is once again speaking out about race. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she shared a story from her recent trip to Switzerland for Tina Turner’s wedding, in which she believes she encountered racism.

Oprah explained that she was shopping in a Swiss store (that shall remain nameless) and the associate refused to let her see handbag. Oprah assumes this is because the woman believed she would not be able to afford the pricey bag.

The Swiss national tourism office has since apologized to Oprah for the incident, taking to Twitter to declare, “this person acted terribly wrong.”

While racism of any kind should never be tolerated, it is interesting to see the reaction the American media has had to the incident. “Like Mitt Romney was mocked constantly for not being in touch with America,” Stu noted. And yet no one has questioned the fact that Oprah – who at one point was the highest paid television personality and the most influential celebrity in the world – was in Switzerland to attend a star-studded wedding while trying to purchase what has been described as a expensive handbag.

Glenn took the opportunity to describe his own experience. “It happened to me in New York. They wouldn't wait on me, because I was dressed like a slob and I was in a very nice store. It was before I was famous and I had the cash in my pocket, and I said, ‘I really want to see…’ And they would wait on everybody else,” Glenn explained. “Finally I said, ‘Excuse me. Can I see your manager?’ And the manager came out and I took the wad of cash out of my pock and I said, ‘See that? This is the money to buy that. I have been waiting to buy that for a couple of years. Here's the money. I just want you to know that person judged me as somebody who couldn't afford it.’ And I loudly said, ‘Don't ever judge someone on the way they look or the way they are dressed.’ Took my money off the table and never went back. And the guy was like, ‘No, no.’ I'm like, ‘You blew it. See ya.’”

“I guess that does happen in general,” Stu said. “I don't think that's racial. I could think of some case with myself as well. I didn't assign it to race, because obviously it wasn't in that case. Maybe that's the difference. She is assigning every one of those incidents.”

Ultimately, as Glenn has learned, prejudices come in many forms. “How about political differences,” Glenn asked. “How many places do I walk in [and people say], ‘No, sir’ and treat my like garbage because of my political opinion, Oprah?”

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.

A judge has banned Texas father Jeff Younger from speaking about his son, James, who was taken from him by our courts after he refused to call his son a girl. But Jeff said he'd rather go to jail than comply: "I'll appear in handcuffs ... but I'm not taking this tyranny."

Jeff joined Glenn Beck on "Targets of Tyranny" to tell James' story and explain the biggest lessons he's learned while battling our legal system.

"This interview is illegal in the state of Texas," Jeff told Glenn. "I was banned from publishing any blog posts, social media post, publishing a newspaper article, doing any writing at all about my situation. I was also permanently banned from doing interviews, doing podcasts, appearing on television interviews, and these are all specifically laid out," he explained.

"I was also banned from speaking on three political topics. I'm not allowed to talk about anything about transgender issues, gender expansiveness, or whether my son is a boy or a girl. And I have told this judge — and I tell this judge every time I do an interview — I will never follow your illegal and unconstitutional order. I have contempt for her as a judge issuing the order. I have maximum contempt for the tyrannical language of the order, and I will never follow the order," Jeff continued.

"I'm guilty of maximum criminal contempt in the 301st District Court of the state of Texas, and [the judge] is obligated to put me in jail for the maximum sentence, which is 180 days in the jail in Dallas County. Four days later, I'll be in the jail library with the writ of habeas corpus that I've already prepared. We will go to the 5th District, and we will see who's right. I'll appear in handcuffs, her in the judge's robe, but I'm not taking this tyranny. And I'm not going to stop speaking out about my son."
