Racism or Bullying? Glenn reacts to reports of bullying in the NFL

Last week a sensational story involving the alleged bullying of an NFL player emerged, and the incident proceeded to shoot to the top of national headlines. On November 1, second year Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin reportedly left his team and drove “straight to a hospital” when he could no longer deal with the supposed bullying from his teammates. On Sunday, the Dolphins, who had initially denied knowing anything about the situation, suspended starting guard Richie Incognito indefinitely for his involvement in the situation.

While Incognito has denied all allegations, he is accused of using a racial slur to describe Martin and also sending him threatening text messages and leaving him threatening voice mails. In April 2013, Incognito reportedly called Martin a “half-n***er piece of (expletive).”

Glenn had so far not commented on the story, but on radio this morning, Pat and Stu (both huge NFL fans) pleaded with Glenn to spend some time on the issue.

“We can talk about the NFL Dolphin bullying story,” Pat said to Glenn. “How can you not be into this? How can you not be into a bullying story in the NFL – the National Football League?”

“Because here's why: We know about the hazing and everything else that happens [in the NFL],” Glenn said. “We encourage it. We condone it… So, the first thing, I'm not interested really. I mean I was interested because I think this guy is sad and think there's something else to this story. There's something going on in the story that we don't know because it doesn't make sense.”

“And here's my take on the possibilities. The guy who is being bullied is mentally unstable, but everybody likes him pretty much. Or they feel guilty about what they did. And you know what, let's just say he was bullied and let's make this go away,” Glenn hypothesized. “[Or] it could be as simple as the guy is bullied his whole life and wants to take a peaceful path and is trying to get along, not causing any problems… Maybe he was just hoping it would all go away. And here he is in his second year, and it continues… If that's the deal, I think he did man up. I think he did man up… He didn't go violent on people… He just walked [out].”

While many analysts and players have come out to question the authenticity of the bullying claims given Martin’s size and the fact that he had apparently never let on that he was bothered by the way he was being treated, Glenn took a slightly different approach to the story. For starters, he argued that Martin’s size and profession is completely irrelevant to the situation because anyone can be bullied. Perhaps more importantly, given the supposed racial slurs involved and the ethnicities of the players, why is no one in the media calling Incognito a racist?

“Tell me why this story is not a racist thing,” Glenn said. “White guy calling black guy N-word. Why is this bullying and not racism? This is why I'm not into this story per se. There's something wrong with the story. And I don't know enough about the ins and outs of sports, but I'm telling you something is wrong… He went to Stanford. His parents are both attorneys. A white guy calling the black guy the N-word and the story is bullying? Something is not right.”

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?
