'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.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
