'These people are crazy': Glenn reacts to shocking video from the 2014 White Privilege Conference

What would you imagine would be spoken about at the fifteenth annual White Privilege Conference? Would it surprise you to learn that some 2,400 students and educators were recently taught that “racism is central to America;” “the longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become;” and “this country was built on white principles for white people”?

Those are just a few of the sound bytes captured by ProgressivesToday.com — a collaboration between Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit and EAG News’ Kyle Olson of EAG News. Olson is also the co-author of Glenn’s new book CONFORM: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education.

ProgressivesToday.com plans to release the footage captured in four separate parts, and on radio this morning, Glenn played part one of the series in which speakers at the Madison, Wisconsin conference insist America is inherently evil because of its racist roots.

Watch part one via Progressives Today below:

“I mean these people they crazy,” Glenn said. “They really think that this is Martin Luther King's dream? Really? He wanted an equal shot. He wanted to be judged by the content of his character. We judge people solely on the color of their skin. You are a racist, if you are white. If you are black, you are oppressed. It doesn't matter. You are oppressed. Really? And if you're not – if you are Condoleezza Rice, well, then you are not really black.”

As Glenn has been talking about for a number of months, now is the time to look past all of the divides – race, creed, ideology – and find common ground.

“Let's have that dialogue because we'll be able to find common ground and move forward,” Glenn said. “We aren't going to move forward on things that enslave people no matter what the race is. We aren't going to do that. But if you are really for just the opportunity, so are we.”

Those that seek to marginalize certain voices or opinion are those who are weak and afraid, Glenn explained.

“It is a disease of mankind. It's a desire of weak people. Who drives people's voices out, really? If you are comfortable in your position, do you drive out of your sight those who are reasonable, who will talk and who disagree with you? Do you? Because I don't,” Glenn said. “Who silences people? People who are weak and afraid… I think there are two kinds of people that believe in the progressive socialist movement: Ones that believe they are above it. They understand, but other people are too stupid… And the other, they want to control you. They want power themselves.”

It is clear the purpose of the White Privilege Conference was not to open a dialogue about race relations but to shut it down. Glenn explained that we reads the works of and associates with people he disagrees with because it makes him stronger and more convicted. Unfortunately, that is clearly not the opinion of the educators in that room.

“I have Peter Singer's books in my library. I have read Peter Singer. Why wouldn't I? I want to hear Peter Singer. I'm a devout Christian. I'll listen to Penn Jillette. I will talk to him. He's a reasonable guy. It makes my faith stronger. If Penn Jillette, a magician, can tear my faith apart, make me not believe in God anymore, I didn't believe in God anyway. It makes you stronger,” Glenn concluded. “These people want to silence you. And they are doing it. And it's incumbent upon us, in peace, to bind ourselves together and stand arm-in-arm.”

ProgressivesToday.com's Jim Hoft and Kyle Olson appeared on last Friday’s Dana to discuss what they discovered at the White Privilege Conference.

Watch the interview below:

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
