'Oppressed' Mizzou hunger striker's family worth millions

Jonathan Butler, the University of Missouri grad student who went on a hunger strike because the university dropped his healthcare, was apparently not a representative voice for the people.

"He wanted everybody to know and admit their white guilt for white privilege," Glenn explained on radio Thursday.

Although he protested on behalf of the so-called "oppressed" being held back by "white privilege," Butler's family seems to have benefited greatly from opportunities in America. In fact, last year his father pulled in more that six million as an executive with Union Pacific. He is worth a cool twenty million dollars.

Glenn pointed out the absurdity of Butler being a voice for the "oppressed" students at the University of Missouri. By the way, the university dropped healthcare for graduate students because of Obamacare.

GLENN: Can we just talk -- and I know this is a story that broke yesterday. But we didn't get a chance to talk about it because of the debate.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: The hunger strike protester.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Oh, my gosh, this guy was oppressed.

GLENN: Right. Right. So he was on a hunger strike at Missouri University.

PAT: Right because of the oppression.

GLENN: Because of the oppression. And he wanted everybody to know and admit their white guilt for white oppression.

STU: Privilege.

GLENN: And their white privilege. Exactly right. Because white people have privileges that others --

PAT: That he doesn't. You know, as a person of color, he obviously doesn't have access to certain things.

GLENN: Exactly right.

JEFFY: He had many demands. He was really angry at the university for taking away the health care for the graduate student program.

PAT: Yeah. Dang it.

GLENN: So his paternal grandfather is an attorney in New York, who helped the poor in New York City a lot.

STU: Seems like a good job.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, and his mom Cynthia was a former educator, who runs an advocacy people.

PAT: So these are good people. Salt of the earth and hard workers.

GLENN: Salt of the earth. And advocates for people.

PAT: Advocates for people. Yes. Yes.

GLENN: And his dad --

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Well, his dad --

PAT: Was like a dirt farmer?

GLENN: No.

PAT: A plumber?

GLENN: A Union Pacific executive.

PAT: What do you mean, like a person --

STU: An executive assistant?

PAT: Yeah. Like he repaired trains?

GLENN: No, he was the executive vice president of marketing and sales.

STU: Okay. Is that good --

PAT: Yeah, but, I mean, what do they pull down, 30-, $35,000 a year?

GLENN: No, last year he made 6,685,500 in total compensation.

JEFFY: That's only with stock options, though.

STU: Oh, okay.

PAT: Wait. 6 million --

GLENN: $6,685,500 in total compensation last year. The family is worth -- daddy is worth $20 million.

JEFFY: Now how oppressed are you?

PAT: Isn't that amazing? That is so amazing.

GLENN: Isn't that so oppressed? Do you know if he was white, how much money he would have?

STU: I don't know. Probably $21 million.

GLENN: Oh, he would probably have $500 billion if he were white.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Dad would have owned the railroad, not been an executive vice president, working for a measly six and a half million dollars a year.

PAT: Thank you. And he would get free health care from the university.

GLENN: Right. Right. And grandpa wouldn't have been an attorney in New York City. Okay.

PAT: Plus, somebody wouldn't have said the N-word to somebody else who was walking not on campus, but off campus.

GLENN: Amen to that one.

PAT: And somebody drove by them and said something or may not have. We don't know. Because we don't have any proof.

GLENN: Mom wouldn't have been a teacher.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Had it not been for white privilege.

STU: And, Jeffy, can you go through the white privilege that led to the health care being pulled away from these students?

JEFFY: Yeah. Well, he was very angry at the University of Missouri for pulling this out from the graduate student plan.

PAT: Yeah.

JEFFY: But the university had to do that because of Obamacare.

GLENN: What.

PAT: The white privilege Obamacare.

STU: The white side. Yeah.

PAT: Yeah.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
