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?"

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead , 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either , which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached :

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended —because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

Top 5 economic milestones that show HOW BAD Bidenomics has made the economy

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
