Really? Democratic Congressman says President Obama has improved race relations

Apparently Congressman James Clyburn (D-SC) hasn’t been following the news. During an interview on Sirius XM’s The Morning Briefing on Wednesday, Rep. Clyburn – the third highest-ranking Democrat in the House – praised President Obama for improving race relations.

REPORTER:  What about race relations? Do you think that they have improved under President Obama?

CLYBURN: Oh yes. There is no question about that. But remember President Obama is serving at a time when a tool like the Internet that can be so positive in so many ways can also be very negative in many ways.

 And we have seen the negativism that can flow from this. When you have manufactured controversies, and that's what's happening here, controversies being manufactured…

“Stop, stop, stop,” Glenn said. “So where is he going? Where is he going? Is it shut down the voices of the Internet?”

CLYBURN: …and then you have people's words and phrases being misrepresented and looped through the news media and thrown out there on the Internet, and people run with it because these things start getting reported in the mainstream media, and before you know it, people believe that stuff.

The people of Germany believed Hitler’s foolishness that led to the Holocaust. They believed that stuff. And people will tend to believe what they hear through the media.

I can't tell you how many times I've had people say things to me, I say "Where did you get that from?" "It got to be true. It was on the television or it was in the newspapers." So, people think these things are true.

And most of these people are not media people; they are bloggers, and they are bloggers for the extreme right wing who misrepresent Shirley Sherrod’s words, cut and print it, next thing you know Shirley Sherrod had lost her job, who misrepresented what was going on with ACORN, and next thing you know it was defunded. All of that stuff was manufactured and people tend to act now and ask questions later and that's what we are falling subject to.

“Is that amazing,” Pat asked exasperatedly.

“No, not in today's world. Not in today's world,” Glenn said. “I'm surprised that he didn't say, ‘And I'm going to light you on fire right now and then deny that I lit you on fire.’ I mean, in today's world I just don't… it's really quite amazing.”

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.
