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.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
