Glenn: 'Selma' is a movie every American needs to see

We saw Selma tonight. I really wanted to see it but at the same time I worried about the spin of the story. It is an Oprah movie. She attended Jeremiah Wright's church. If she could sit through those sermons, God only knows what she really believes. The last thing I want to do is be preached to about how racist America is.

Would it be a message movie or would they tell the whole truth and let it speak for itself?

I am thrilled to say, this is a movie that every American should see.

First. Every cop killer, looter, liar and "take it because I've been wronged and I am owed good things" American needs to watch. Listen in particular to what a friend of Coretta Scott King says to her before she goes in to speak to Malcolm X.

"We come from a proud and noble people. People who have struggled and fought and survived slave ships. But created great civilizations. We were the first people. We can overcome anything. We are Noble."

They need to watch to see what people went through so they COULD VOTE! They just wanted to have control of their lives and make their own way fairly. They were educated against all odds, brave for no reason and had tremendous faith even though God hadn't be clearly present for a long time.

Inspiring and damning of today's attitude and behavior.

I was also shocked and glad they told the truth about mlks personal flaws, I am glad that they did not harp on it, but they did address it. I thought this was important. It shows that he was not perfect and that if we just are willing to obey Him, he will not be thwarted. He will use anyone who says, I may be afraid, but I will do as you ask. Watch the kneeling scene on the bridge, powerful God moment. Again, willing to be unpopular because a God told him.

Important to note that 1/3 of those marching were white.

Every progressive should see LBJ in all his racist glory. Notice the painting of Andrew Jackson on his wall. Anti hero. Read up on how the civil right act was originally a republican bill that LbJ blocked in the senate in the late 1950s. That it was the republicans who were the champions not the democrats. *kennedy's were the exception. Especially RFK.

Don't let the movie fool you on one very important point: George Wallace was a DEMOCRAT. HIS ENTIRE LIFE. The only flaw,beside historical nit picking (Resolute desk was in the Smithsonian after JFK and not in the Oval etc), was the fact that they tried to make Wallace look like a Republican. He was against LBJ, liberals and progressives. He was a Democrat. It can happen just as I am against the progressives in the Republican Party but it bothered me.

***I am not saying all Democrats are bad and Republicans are good. That is clearly not true. However let's make sure we are telling history correctly.

The important thing for those on the left to see is the role of God in the civil rights movement. They could have skated around this but they didn't. I was really pleased to see how much of a role they allowed God to play in this movie. It makes all the difference if you really want to tell the truth.

Now, it is equally important for those on the right to see this film. Many think we are living the civil rights era again... I do not believe we are, yet there are some of the same roots. The targeting of king and anyone who stands against the power in DC. The loss of rights although no where to the extent of what blacks went through.

To me this film tells me it will be our children, black and white - left and right, that will fight this battle and not us. Will they be prepared, educated and humble enough to stand for "all men are created equal,"

*note the opening scene with Oprah's character. How she handled herself was much more like a Tea Party person than an Occupy Wall Street or 'Black Lives Matter' protestor.

These people were heroes. We should be so lucky to be this brave, restrained and smart.

The movie also shows the want of many to run to violence and guns. The Malcolm X character is important. You hear many things that I have heard from the outer fringes of the people who think the Tea Party doesn't go far enough. You will see why the right lost at the Bundy Ranch.

Humility, a non violent posture at all times is critical and the only way to win.

*****Important note: the right has not been violent. OWS was. Unions (SEIU) were. However, look at the images here. The bad guys were the ones shouting, pointing and pointing guns. The good guys were quiet, humble, open, meek, God fearing, kind, defenseless.

***I don't think it was needed but the film did only hint to Malcolm X's change of heart as he fell away from the Nation of Islam. I think this is important to address somewhere as the NOI is growing in the black community once again.

It is not a coincidence that Sirhan Sirhan killed RFK over Israel, JFK was killed by a communist, Malcolm X was killed by Islam and MLK was killed by a hate filled racist.

BE NONE OF THOSE THINGS AND CHANGE THE WORLD.

If you want to understand history, see a compelling movie, great acting and directing, a message we can all learn from WITHOUT IT BEING A MESSAGE MOVIE, and you want to see what real struggle is like, how Americans can and do come together when they see real injustice and how NOBLE and God fearing people who seek to love change the world: SEE SELMA.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
