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.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
