Do black lives really matter? Glenn reads the stunning list of black people murdered in Chicago being ignored by activists and protesters

On the O’Reilly Factor last night, guest Tavis Smiley claimed “there is no respect for black life in this country,” in a rant against the grand jury decision in New York this week.

Glenn isn’t necessarily a fan of the decision, but he’s even less a fan of the narrative.

Are white cops the biggest threat to black people today?

The statistics and tragically long list of names of black people murdered in Chicago within the last few months tell a different story.

GLENN: All right. Black lives matter. He says, there's no respect. No one is paying attention and black lives matter. Let me give you a few names.

Rayvon Little, twenty years old. Chicago. Dead.

Andre Johnson, Jr., black, 29 years old, Chicago, dead.

Andrew Brown, 46, South Shore, Chicago, dead.

Doug Chambliss, black, 33, Chicago, dead.

Darrell Tolbert, 36, black, shot to death.

Gregory McKinney, black, shot to death.

Joseph Lewis, Chicago, black, shot to death.

By the way, that's -- that's those who were killed in the month of November. Would you like me to give you the names —

PAT: I didn't hear Tavis mention any of them.

GLENN: Would you like me to give you the names for September because black lives matter?

There is no respect for black life in America anymore. You're right. And there's a growing condition that we don't respect any life anymore. In fact, we celebrate people who say, life is just too hard. I'm going to take my own life. We celebrate — we pay for people to take the lives of their babies because it's just going to be too hard to raise that baby. I want to live my life.

Black lives don't matter? No life matters anymore. But if you want to talk about black life, let's talk about — let's talk about how many white people have killed black people? How many black people have killed white people?

STU: And this is not, you know, to say that black people are bad. What it does say, is that there's not an epidemic of white people killing black people. 448 — this is 2011 according to the FBI, 448 whites were killed by blacks.

Approximate 193 blacks were killed by whites. That is 2.3 times more whites killed by blacks than the other way around despite the fact that there's six times as many whites in this country.

GLENN: Can we find out how many blacks killed blacks?

STU: We can. 193 blacks were killed by whites. 2,447 blacks were killed by blacks. 2,447 to 193.

GLENN: Give me again how many whites kill blacks and how many blacks kill blacks. How many whites killed blacks?

STU: 193.

GLENN: 193. Black people were killed by white people. 193 black people were killed by white people.

How many black people killed black people?

STU: 2,447.

GLENN: Is there an epidemic in America? Yeah, there's an epidemic in America, isn't there?

Nigell Vazquez. Twenty-two, black, Chicago. Shot to death.

Edward Davis, 23, black, Chicago, shot to death.

Martell Robinson, 20, shot to death.

In case you're keeping track at home. This is a whole new group of people.

Shaquille Holmes, 19 years old, black shot to death.

Decari Spivey, black, shot to death at 21.

54-year-old. He made it to 54. Malcolm Warnsby, 54.

Terry cook, 32 black shot to death.

Michael Wright, black 21, shot to death.

Michael Bloodson, 17, black, Chicago, shot to death.

Charles Labon, 28, black shot to death.

Tamica Riley, 37, black. Suffocation.

Christopher McGee, black, shot to death.

Kawantis Montgomery 19, black shot to death.

Devonshay Lofton, 17, black shot to death.

Kamaal Burton. 18, black, shot to death.

Dimitre Beck, 21, black stabbed to death.

Leon Austin, black stabbed to death.

Markise M. Darling, 19, shot to death.

Cortez river, black 16, shot to death.

Davontae Harrison, 21. Black shot to death.

Mondele Heard. 20 shot to death.

Arthur Hearn, 88, died from assault. Chicago.

Deandre Ellis black shot to death.

Malachi Baldwin, 27, black shot to death.

Leroyce Noel, 20 shot to death.

Stanley Macon Jr., 25, shot to death.

Camerion Blair, 16, shot to death.

Shandel Adams, 25, black shot to death.

Demureya Macon, 13, Chicago, shot to death.

PAT: What was that?

GLENN: That was September.

You want to talk about an epidemic? You want to talk about black lives not mattering?

Stu, how many white people killed black people last year?

STU: 2011, 448 whites were killed by blacks. 193 blacks were killed by whites.

GLENN: How many blacks killed blacks?

STU: 2,447.

GLENN: Those are the numbers.

America, I know that we're suffering from Common Core math, but those numbers — when you have to use a little arrow sign which is bigger — which is a greater number than the other, it's pretty damn clear even when you're using Common Core math.

STU: 91 percent of black people were killed by black people in this particular year. 91 percent.

GLENN: What do you say we actually talk about reconciliation? What do you say we stop listening to the clerics like Al Sharpton. The people who are just using their religion for their own power. What do you say we stop listening to the communists, the anarchists, or anybody else, that has an agenda other than saying all life matters. Why does black life only matter? Why does old life or 20-something or children's lives or American lives.

What do you say all lives matter, and we try to fix that. To do that, however, we'll have to start asking each other really honest questions: What the hell is going on in the inner cities. Where's Al Sharpton there inspect anybody who is honest would be there every weekend. Don't talk to me about — don't talk to me about something we agree on. The grand jury appears to be wrong in New York. Let's figure that one out and let's do that one together.

Continuation of the names:

GLENN: Just looking at the names of people that have -- the names of the people -- black lives matter, the names of the people killed on the streets of Chicago, just in the last couple of months.

GLENN: Mr. President, may I ask a question, could any of these young men have been your son? Any of — any of these young men? Did they look like they could be your son?

Al Sharpton, is there any injustice happening here? Is there any epidemic going on here? Where are you, Al Sharpton? Why aren't you -- why aren't you encouraging people to burn down the convenience stores in Chicago? Why aren't people protesting in the streets of Chicago and turning over cars — not police cars, because this is mainly black-on-black crime in Chicago. No cops involved here. These are just kids killing kids with illegal guns.

You want to talk about oppression, you want to talk about slavery, slavery exists. It exists in the inner city where you're a slave to crime. You can't get your kids out because of the crime. You worry about your kids as they go out. Don't get shot in the front lawn. You don't even have to be doing anything wrong. Three years old, shot to death, front lawn. 14-year-old shot from inside the house even though the fighting was happening outside the house.

Where is the justice? Where is the peace? Where are the marches? Where are the civil rights activists? Where are people saying take control of your own damn life? Where is the president on this one? Why are we lumping people together and saying that — as Tavis Smiley did on Bill O'Reilly, giving five names and lumping the real, what appears to me, to be injustice in New York.

That is injustice.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

David McNew / Staff | Getty Images

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series. Here you can find a wide selection of books free from Amazon's filters. Be sure to sign up for Glenn's newsletter to find out about new additions to "Glenn's Bookshelf" every week.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
