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?”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
