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?"

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

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.
