Justice Scalia warns WWII-style internment camps could return

Is America about to witness a frightening instance of history repeating itself? According to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, maybe. During a speech at the University of Hawaii on Monday, Justice Scalia warned the Supreme Court could approve a wartime violation of civil rights like it did in allowing internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II.

The Supreme Court’s 1944 decision in Korematsu v. United States upheld the convictions of Gordon Hirabayashi and Fred Korematsu for violating orders to report to an internment camp. While Scalia said the Supreme Court was wrong to uphold the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, something similar could easily happen during a future conflict.

“Well of course Korematsu was wrong. And I think we have repudiated in a later case,” he said. “But you are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.”

Glenn has long spoken about the importance of Americans being aware of and familiar with the tragedies and massacres that have been orchestrated by the United States government in order to ensure history (like internment camps) does not repeat itself. His newest book, Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America deals with that very theme.

“Excuse me? Excuse me? Now, this is the case that we make in Miracles and Massacres. In fact, he used the Latin ‘In times of war the laws are silent.’ That's the name of one of the chapters in Miracles and Massacres… In the book we said, ‘We've got to learn from this because we're about to repeat it again.’ And we gave evidence… We're starting to do it again,” Glenn said. “And I know when I say it, it's crazy. And I'm sure because Scalia is crazy and a warmonger or whatever he is, I'm sure it's going to be called crazy too. But does it not wake anybody new up?”

The danger Justice Scalia discusses is not simply a big government, progressive problem; it is an inherent problem with human nature. Whether you look back in history to the slavery debate and Manifest Destiny or look at today’s conversations about abortion, human nature hasn’t changed.

“[It’s the feeling of] ‘we know we're right, and if you don't agree with us, there's no place for you.’ That's why Scalia is saying it's going to happen again. Because human nature doesn't change. I'm sorry. The progressives are wrong. Man does not progress,” Glenn said. “Every human starts with the same problems, the same flaws. We don't progress past that. We have that in our basic nature. And it is for each individual to conquer that. And so you have to conquer it over and over and over and over again.”

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

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.
