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.”

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
