Trump Campaign Selects White Nationalist as Delegate in California

After getting into hot water for not immediately denouncing former Grand Wizard of the KKK David Duke --- who endorsed Trump --- news outlets now report another link to white supremacists. The Trump campaign has chosen William Johnson --- a lawyer and white supremacist --- as one of its delegates in California.

CNN's Jake Tapper interviewed Johnson about what's being called a "database error" by the Trump campaign.

TAPPER: Do you believe that the white race or the European white race is the superior race, is that your view?

JOHNSON: I believe that western civilization is declining and dying out in every country around the world that see has traditionally been white," Johnson said. "And so I believe that we need to be aware of this precipitous decline in the white race. And I think it's good for people to be proud of your heritage, whatever heritage that might be. But particularly for white people because the whites now are so afraid to be proud of their heritage because they're called bad names if they are.

Thursday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn reviewed Johnson's carefully packaged comments and how they could easily resonate with people not knowing his background.

"Stu, forget what he is. Forget what you know about him. Do you believe the white race is a superior race?" Glenn asked.

"No," Stu said.

What about Pat and Jeffy?

"No," Pat said.

"I do not," Jeffy said.

Whew.

"Okay, Neither do I. None of us," Glenn said.

The problem is that Johnson's packaged comments sound rational to the average American, who is not racist.

"Forget what you know about him. Because what I'm doing is I'm putting you in the frame of mind of the average American who is only half listening. Who is only half listening. They see this supporter, it says 'Trump supporter, Trump delegate' and you're listening to him, and you kind of look up, you're in the airport or you're in the doctor's office or wherever CNN is running. You look up and you see this guy. And you hear him say what he just said," Glenn said.

Many Americans could get behind a statement like that.

But Johnson has other stated beliefs that were not part of the interview. For example, he's on record as saying America needs to cleanse itself of Negro blood, a statement that makes most Americans cringe.

"What is he, essentially lying? I mean, he's telling things he says are true, but he's whitewashing it for the media," Stu said.

Exactly.

"Yes, he's packaging it," Glenn said. "It's not that they hate people from other places, but they're proud of their own culture. And they're afraid to be proud of their white culture, right?"

That's why packaged statements like the one Johnson made to Jake Tapper resonate with reasonable, well-meaning Trump supporters.

"So here, he's talking about people. So race . . . he's showing himself as a racist. He's only looking at race. But here's the problem: It's not race that is the problem in America or anywhere else. It is the losing of the American or the western culture --- which has its problems --- but for the most part has been an incredible, the biggest blessing in the history of all mankind. And that's what people feel like they're losing," Glenn said.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."
