Michelle Obama tells students to monitor family members for ‘racial insensitivity’

On Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke to graduating high school students in Topeka Kansas, and during her speech, Obama suggested segregation still exists and encouraged students to police the racially insensitive comments of family, friends, and colleagues because federal laws can only go so far in thwarting racism. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the First Lady’s telling remarks.

“Michelle Obama gave a speech where… they're worried about segregation again, and I don't think that that was something that any of us worried about six years ago,” Glenn said. “Was anybody on the, ‘Hey, we might all be segregated again?’ I don't know. It's strange how their policies to bring us all together is just driving a stake in our heart and a wedge between all of us.”

Obama was invited to speak to the Topeka students in honor of the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. The Board of Education (1954), which said it was unconstitutional for states to establish separate public schools for black and white students.

While the First Lady praised the diversity of the student body, she warned there is “no court case against believing in stereotypes or thinking that certain kinds of hateful jokes or comments are funny.”

“You see, when you grow up in a place like Topeka, where diversity is all you’ve ever known, the old prejudices just don’t make any sense,” she said. “But remember, not everyone has grown up in a place like Topeka. See, many districts in this country have actually pulled back on efforts to integrate their schools, and many communities have become less diverse as folks have moved from cities to suburbs.”

As Obama explained, Brown v. The Board of Education “is still being decided every single day –- not just in our courts and schools, but in how we live our lives.”

“Now, our laws may no longer separate us based on our skin color, but nothing in the Constitution says we have to eat together in the lunchroom, or live together in the same neighborhoods,” she said. “So the answers to many of our challenges today can’t necessarily be found in our laws. These changes also need to take place in our hearts and in our minds. And so, graduates, it’s up to all of you to lead the way, to drag my generation and your grandparents’ generation along with you. And that’s really my challenge to all of you today.”

“One way you could do that: Maybe tape personal conversations in the kitchen of NBA owners,” Stu joked. “That’s a good way to do it.”

“If we could just do that and then report them right to like the IRS - wouldn't that be good,” Glenn added.

When you consider what President Obama’s senior advisor Valerie Jarrett told graduates at Pomona College in Claremont, California about the methods she has at her disposal to look into everything someone does online before hiring that individual, one can only imagine how this Administration plans to snuff out racism.

“It's chilling,” Pat said of Jarrett’s off-handed joke. “And all the students think it's great. ‘That's so funny. They're monitoring everything I'm doing… You've got special ways? Good. Are you monitoring every keystroke?’ Yes. What's wrong with this generation?”

“They don't know any different,” Glenn concluded. “Look what's happening with Common Core. Why are they dumbing us down? Why are they teaching us not to read Huck Finn? Why are teaching us not to listen to another point of view? They need to get our critical thinking erased.”

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
