Bob Costas: Redskins a 'slur’ and ‘insult’ to Native Americans

During last night’s Sunday Night Football broadcast on NBC, veteran sportscaster Bob Costas decided it was his turn to weigh in on controversy over the Washington Redskins moniker. We already know how President Obama feels about the NFL franchise’s suddenly controversial name, so it was only natural that Costas interrupt the dual between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins to offer his two cents on the topic.

“Well, I want to talk to you about somebody I think is a very smart man and I've had a lot of respect for over the years. But… I think he's gone full-fledged senile,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “But the nice thing is, in his senility, he still has remained wildly arrogant. Here is the one, the only, Bob Costas on the Redskins:”

“He goes on for about two minutes on the Redskins,” Pat explained. “You know, there are some names, like the Braves and the Seminoles that are really legitimate tributes to Native Americans. And he goes on and on and on.”

So what is the takeaway from Costas’ couple minutes of blabbering?

COSTAS: ‘Redskins’ can’t possibly honor a heritage or noble character trait, nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term. It’s an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present-day intent.

“Wouldn't it have been nice if Bob had done a little research on that,” Pat asked. “And part of the set up was that he said a majority of Native Americans are offended by it. 90%, Bob [are not offended by the name]. Technically that's a majority.”

On Friday, Glenn released a video that explained how overblown this situation as begun. The outcries of President Obama and those in the media seem to suggest a majority of Native Americans are offended by the Redskins moniker. In reality, that is simply not the case:

“It's, again, the arrogance of the white man,” Glenn said of this controversy. “And again, where does that arrogance come from? From Manifest Destiny, it came from the government. It came from people who were in control… Look at George Washington. He was a friend of the Indians. So was Davy Crockett. He brokered most of the deals we had. The reason he left Congress is because Congress said, ‘Well, those deals aren't working.’… And he left Congress because he couldn't take it anymore. He figured out that the guys in Washington are all about power and they don't have any honor. That's who it always is, the people in power or those who are protecting those in power. Bob Costas is trying to make us hate each other even more.”

“It is the progressive way. They know better than you,” Glenn concluded. “This time, they happen to be in the 10% of really smart people. And 90% are wrong.”

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
