Who Is Standing up for Your Civil Rights, America?

The civil rights movement of the 1960s was an iconic moment in American history --- and a real struggle for civil rights. The preposterous "sit-in" orchestrated by House Democrats to protest gun control legislation not being passed was a hollow attempt to mimic the 1960s. This time, however, the protest was against the civil rights of American citizens, and an embarrassment and mockery.

"I have to tell you, the sit-in in Congress makes me want to vomit. These guys who are so-called "civil rights" leaders who are having a sit-in, go ahead. Go ahead. I don't care if you sit there for the rest of your stinking life, which for some of them, they're so old now, that could be a two-and-a-half-hour period before they break a hip because they're sitting on the floor cross-legged." Glenn said.

Perhaps most disappointing of all was the criss-cross applesauce participation by civil rights icon John Lewis.

"Let's just go over this. What happened yesterday? What happened yesterday? The people like John Lewis --- who is a civil rights icon, the guy really is a hero, marching with Martin Luther King, what he put up with, what he did in the 1960s is amazing --- he has become a clown. This has made these civil rights leaders into absolute clowns," Glenn said.

One of the most radical, left-leaning organizations in America even questioned the Democrat's pillow party.

"Do you know that ACLU is against what the Democrats are doing right now? Who are the civil rights leaders? I've said this for a long time, and people make fun of us: We're the civil rights leaders. We're the civil rights leaders of today," Glenn said.

Congressional Democrats have no problem impeding the Second Amendment rights of American citizens, but when it comes to their own protection, the hypocrisy is on full display. Look no further than senator Charlie Rangel (D-NY).

INTERVIEWER: Why should say, the uber wealthy people who have protection, have that protection, but individuals who are law-abiding citizens in your district should not? Let's talk about that.

CHARLIE: Well, law-abiding citizens just shouldn't have to carry a gun. You know that. So you're not going to push me in that direction.

INTERVIEWER: But you're protected by guns all over the place here at the capitol.

CHARLIE: Well, that's a little different. I think, I think we need to be protected down here.

"Wow," Co-host Pat Gray responded.

"That's a little different. We deserve it. And we need to be protected down here. We need to be protected. And we deserve it. But a law-abiding citizen shouldn't have to. I agree with you, they shouldn't have to. They shouldn't have to. But they should be able to," Glenn said.

RINO John McCain (R-AZ) further stomped on the constitutional rights of Americans yesterday.

"You know what John McCain did? John McCain yesterday is standing up for, if you're on the no-fly list, you can't buy a gun. But beyond that, just to make sure, because if you're suspected, we need to be able to go through all of your internet activity and be able to monitor every keystroke that you make on your internet connection and on your computer without a warrant --- for your safety. Civil rights leader. Civil rights leaders. I can just take your right away of a warrant and your right to be secure in your persons and your thoughts," Glenn said.

The Constitution and civil rights of American citizens are under attack from all sides.

"They're taking away my right to protect myself, to defend myself. They're taking away my right of security, of person, papers, ideas. And they're taking away my protection, my constitutionally-given protection of a warrant of jury, of having -- you have to bring me up on charges to face my accuser, of double jeopardy, that I can't be held indefinitely. Those are all gone. Both sides are talking about getting rid of them, and these are the freaking civil rights leaders? You are violating all of my civil rights. You are asking people to codify a violation of every American's civil rights," Glenn said.

"Is anybody fighting for the people to hold all the rights, that they actually hold them all, and states follow that, and the federal government really only has responsibilities of securing those rights? No. You know why? Because the federal government has the responsibility, and both the right and the left now, to violate those rights. Hillary Clinton? Is she going to be the big champion of civil rights? Donald Trump? He hasn't even read the freaking Constitution. Who is standing up for your civil rights, America?"

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
