Former NFL Great Burgess Owens on How Democrats Breed Black Votes

Former NFL star Burgess Owens joined The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday to talk about his new book Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies, and Wimps. In his post-NFL life, Owens has been an entrepreneur, speaker, author and historian. The history he shared on Glenn's radio program shows the devastating impact of liberalism on the black community.

"From 1865 to 1965, my race, the black race, was one of the most competitive, entrepreneurial, Christian, moral races in our country. We had the highest percentage of entrepreneurs in the country, the highest percentage of marriage in the country. And we were so competitive, black entrepreneurs, that in 1932, the Democrats had put together a law called the Davis-Bacon Act to help protect the white unions against us," Owens said.

Fascinated by this information, Glenn urged Owens to continue.

"Where we are today is 80 percent of black females are unemployed across this country. Seventy-six percent of black men abandon their children, forsake marriage. We have illiteracy running afoul. There's more black males dropping out of high school than dropping out of college. This is the end result of liberalism, and it's not an accident," Owens said.

How did this perversion take root? Not surprisingly, it happened at the turn of the last century, when progressives began wreaking havoc on American society.

"In 1910, the NAACP, with 21 white socialist Marxists, gave this race to be controlled by the Democrats. By the way, the antithesis of Martin Luther King Jr.'s capitalist, Christian and entrepreneurial community," Owens said.

This behind-the-curtain control of the black community continues to this day.

"The only way they got into our community was through stealth, and that stealth still happens today with BET. BET is Black Entertainment Television. It's not been black-owned for 15 years. It's owned by Redstone, Viacom, bought out by white, wealthy, liberal Democrats, and [it] gave my community 15 years of anti-white, anti-police, anti-American, anti-family --- everything that's liberalism," Owens said.

Owens went on to acknowledge the frustration felt in the black community.

"You wonder why the streets are full now of people totally frustrated because they have no idea that this has been personally done for their vote. They're breeding black votes, and they've done that for years. That's what Democrats do best: breed black votes," Owens said.

How do we set things straight and heal this gap?

"Look, I'm willing to do, say, meet with anyone, as long as they're not trying to empower themselves, as long as we're all trying to empower people," Glenn said.

Owens first recommended that white Americans stop apologizing and black Americans stop thinking of whites as the oppressor. Secondly, he stressed the importance of understanding the real crisis we face.

"We live in the greatest country in the history of mankind every single day," Owens said. "We do not have a racial crisis, we have an ideology crisis. We have socialists, Marxists and liberals who have hijacked my race," Owens said.

Owens also noted an exciting opportunity: Twenty-eight of black Americans vote exactly the same way he does. They love their country. They love God. They love their children and communities.

"Burgess, you know, I don't know if you'd like to take us up on this offer, but I'd love to have you here in the studio. I'd love to spend a lot more time with you on radio and television because I think you need to be heard," Glenn said. "Your book is riddled with facts that I didn't know. It's tremendous."

Owens wholeheartedly agreed, and also issued a challenge.

"Let me just say this: The wizard of BET is Viacom. It's Philippe Dauman, Shari Redstone, the board of directors of Viacom. I would love to have them a part of this conversation. We're battling back and forth with the people who began the seed of destruction and hatred. Let's have them stand up for the American people. Explain to us what they think of Black Lives Matter," Owens said.

Owens' new book, Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies, and Wimps, is available in bookstores everywhere.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
