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.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
