Young woman shows up at Ferguson protest to deliver powerful statement

As tensions flared in Ferguson following the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death, a 19 year old college student decided to join the protest for a very unexpected reason. Glenn interviewed Lexi Kozhevsky on radio Tuesday to find out why she did what he called "one of the bravest things I've seen anyone do."

In an act she described as "unnerving, to say the least," Kozhevsky ventured to the streets of Ferguson to support local law enforcement, placing herself between the protesters and a line a police officers.

She shared a Snapchat video with TheBlaze, which captured the moment.

The nursing student told Glenn why she felt it was simply the right thing to do.

"I think our police are getting the brunt end of a lot of negativity, and my thing is not all cops are bad. So I felt the need to show them that someone else is there for them and protect them," Kozhevsky said.

GLENN: Last night, there was a young woman who did exactly that. In one of the bravest things I've seen anyone do. This Washington University student goes out apparently by herself and stands between the protesters and the police in Ferguson. Here's what she said last night, as she is standing alone with the police about 20 feet behind her. As she is standing there all by herself, she says this. Pat doesn't have it. I stalled as long as I could.

PAT: You did. You gave a shot.

GLENN: I did. That's all right.

So last night she stood there and she said, I'd rather have something happen to me than my police. Why would she do that?

Lexi is on the phone with us.

Lexi, how do you say your last name?

LEXI: Kozhevsky. And I go to St. Louis University, just so you guys now.

GLENN: Okay. Sorry. We have the wrong information.

But, Lexi, it's great to have you on the phone. Why did you do that last night?

LEXI: I was just doing what felt right, honestly. I think our police are getting the brunt end of a lot of negativity, and my thing is not all cops are bad. So I felt the need to show them that someone else is there for them and protect them.

PAT: Are your parents around? Do you --

LEXI: You mean like currently?

GLENN: Yeah, are they alive?

LEXI: Oh, yeah. But I live with my grandparents.

PAT: And how did they feel about this?

LEXI: They're nervous more than anything.

PAT: I'll bet, yeah.

LEXI: Yes.

GLENN: How many people did you go with last night?

LEXI: I went with two of my friends.

GLENN: And how did this come about? You're just sitting around doing what when somebody said what that made you get into the car?

LEXI: Well, pretty much, I was having a pretty rough day. And I was like -- I was going through my home, scrolling through articles. And I was like, a state of emergency, and it's really close. I was like, guys, we should go see this. This is history, like, right in front of us. And then I didn't plan on doing that, it just sort of happened.

GLENN: What made you -- what made you stand in between them when you were there?

LEXI: Because -- well, the thing is, they -- things are being thrown at them the previous night. People are being shot. I was like, no more of our uniformed men and women have to do that. Or they shouldn't have to go through that because they're just doing their job. They're just protecting us in the way they're trained to do. So I felt the need to -- yeah.

PAT: What kind of feedback have you gotten since you've done this? Is it positive?

LEXI: It's definitely been a mixture regardless. I knew it was going to happen. Definitely negative. Definitely positive. I'm just letting it -- the wave ride. Riding the wave.

GLENN: What did your grandparents say when you came home and they saw your picture?

LEXI: They actually didn't even know honestly. I showed them. And like news stations have been calling. And they sat with me and heard me speak. They're just -- they -- they support me. They just want me to be careful because --

GLENN: It's dangerous.

LEXI: They're grandparents, they want to protect me.

GLENN: Right. And you realize what you did was dangerous, right?

LEXI: Oh, of course. I knew the consequences when I stepped there.

GLENN: Lexi, I still don't know exactly why you did it, but I'm glad you did it. And I think courage is contagious. And it was -- it was brave of you to do that last night.

LEXI: I was just doing what I felt was right, honestly. I don't think it was brave at all.

GLENN: Good for you, Lexi. God bless you. Thank you so much. Appreciate it.

LEXI: Thank you, sir. I appreciate your call.

GLENN: You bet. That's interesting.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Talking to her was fascinating. She's not -- she's not starting a movement. She's not -- did you hear what she said? I was just doing what I felt was right.

'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."
