Should Ebola patients be treated in the United States?

On Saturday, Dr. Kent Brantly, one of two American aid workers infected with the Ebola virus, returned to the United States. Brantly landed at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Georgia and was transported via ambulance to Emory University Hospital, where he will be treated. As the Associated Press reported, this marks the first time a person infected with Ebola – an incurable, deadly virus – has been brought to the U.S.

While the Center for Disease Control has maintained the Atlanta hospital and its workers are equipped to handle the patients, on radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu debated whether or not it was wise to return Brantly and his compatriot to the U.S.

Glenn explained he has “huge respect” for the Brantly, who contracted the virus while he was in Africa treating Ebola patients. At the same time, Glenn wondered if the U.S. could have sent the necessary treatment to Brantly in Africa, instead of returning him to the U.S.

“I hate to go back to this Ebola thing and I really have respect for the guy,” Glenn said. “But I'm just saying: Do we need more logs on the fire… We have the resources to bring everything that they would possibly need to them… Fly a C-131 transport plane. Get it over there. Put all your equipment in it. You don't need to be treated in an American hospital. We'll bring the hospital to you.”

Stu, however, was not convinced.

“I would assume there are time constraints on that one. It's not ready to go right now. There's a facility [in the U.S.] ready to go. There are a few that can treat this sort of thing,” Stu countered. “Supposedly the treatment is already helping. What are we going to do? Let this guy go over there and let him die? You have to take precautions realizing this is an awful disease, but we should be able to seal up one guy and fly him over here. It should not be impossible.”

While Stu's logic sounds reasonable, you may recall the CDC admitted just last month that it had discovered six vials of smallpox at a Food and Drug Administration storage facility in Maryland. This blunder followed a June report in which 80 CDC workers were accidently exposed to anthrax in a laboratory. The recent errors gave Glenn pause.

“You're talking about bringing him into a major population center,” Glenn said of Brantly. “Wasn't it about a month ago… there was something lost? You're saying to me, ‘You know, Glenn, it seems like we should be able to…’ Yes, we should. But…”

Ultimately, Stu found himself feeling like that guy in the movies who tells everyone ‘everything is going to be fine’ before half the population ends up dying of some incurable disease.

“We were having that serious conversation about Ebola,” Stu concluded. “And I'm the idiot in the movie who said, ‘No, we should be able to seal the frickin' guy off. What's the big deal? Nothing is going to happen.’”

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."
