Burgess Owens: White Socialist Democrats Have Betrayed the Black Community

One of the most important voices today for the black community is former NFL Super Bowl champ Burgess Owens. His book, Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps is a must-read that tells the forgotten history of America's once thriving black community --- and why it's failing today. Owens joined The Glenn Beck Program on Tuesday for an enlightening discussion.

"We're about to have a fascinating conversation with a former NFL champion, a guy who is wearing a Super Bowl ring, which makes me happy because I believe the Super Bowl, I believe he beat the . . ." Glenn said.

"This is agonizing," Co-host Stu Burguiere replied.

". . . Philadelphia Eagles. Did he not, Stu?" Glenn asked.

"He has to sit on my couch?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, he has to sit on your couch. It's almost like somebody designed it that way, isn't it? It should be agonizing for Stu. It should be great for the rest of us," Glenn joked.

Petty rivalries aside, Glenn jumped in to the news of the day, asking Owens about his thoughts on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the National Anthem.

"Well, it speaks really, more so not just to that young man, but to our country today. You know, we're at a point where we now can see what's happening through our educational system or lack of education. We have young people who live in the freest country in the history of mankind, who can literally . . . I don't know if you've noticed yet, but we've had a black president for the last eight years," Owens pointed out.

"Really?" Stu asked jokingly.

"And this young man, I think, he just signed a $100 million contract," Owens said.

"So you don't relate to his oppression?" Glenn asked.

"The oppression, it sounds like a communist. It sounds like a socialist," Owens answered.

He then pointed out the real problem facing America today.

"When I talk about the crisis that we are at this point, it's not a black/white racial crisis. It's an ideology crisis. We're dealing with whether we're going to accept the idea of socialism and Marxism and atheism. Or go back to the American way, Judeo-Christian values, which meritocracy is part of it. The idea that content and character and talent are colorblind. And that's where we were trending as a nation," Owens stated.

Owens also discussed his upbringing and how, despite the challenges he faced as a young black man, he was raised with conservative values, love of country and to think critically. He saw firsthand how the free enterprise system allowed for American greatness and prosperity, pointing out that someone like Colin Kaepernick could be disconnected from that ideal.

"When you listen to his comments, it has no foundation of reasoning or context. He's hurt that his people are oppressed. And I think part of it and, again, coming as an athlete, I can remember the tendency of kind of becoming an elitist. Because you're doing things other people can't do. And you wonder, well, I'm here, but what about the rest of the folks? But it's not until you understand the free enterprise concept --- the country allows us, no matter who you are and what your background is, is to go out and dream and struggle and risk and try again --- that you understand that anybody can do it. So, to a degree, part of his problem is he's become so wealthy so quick, and the way he's done it, he has no relationship to really what it takes for him to make it work," Owens said.

In an effort to fully understand the implosion of the black community, Owens went on a quest to research and learn history. One organization he studied was the NAACP.

"A lot of people don't realize it was started not by blacks, but by 21 white socialist Marxists, atheists, race-control Democrats," Owens said.

According to Owens, during the era of Martin Luther King, Sr., the black community was made up of Christians, entrepreneurs, patriots, industrial blacks focused on education and success to prove themselves.

"That's why the community that I grew up in, 50 percent of Americans at the time I grew up were part of the middle class. We had the highest percentage of black men committed to marriage in the early '60s than any other race in our country. The highest percentage of entrepreneurs in our country. So in order to change that, they used stealth. And the attack came from people who really had an agenda. A lot of people don't realize this too. The first anti-lynching law in 1918 was put together by a Republican from Missouri. The person who fought against it was the first white president of the NAACP. He was a socialist, and he thought it was unconstitutional," Owens said.

Owens compared the founders of the NAACP to the current owners of Black Entertainment Television (BET), also white socialist liberals. BET was purchased about 15 years ago by Viacom for $33 billion.

"Ever since, it's been anti-white, anti-police, anti-American, anti-family, anti-woman liberal filth," Owens said.

Glenn also brought up Black Wall Street in Oklahoma, which has virtually been erased from history.

"Here's an African-American community chased out of the South. They go to Oklahoma. They build a city. It was more successful . . ." Glenn said.

"Millionaires everywhere," Owens added.

"Yeah, millionaires everywhere, and it was all black. They had, in this small town, three major banks. They had two or three movie theaters. I mean, it was a boomtown. And a majority owned their own cars when nobody had this. The Democrats and the Klan got a hold of it and burned it to the ground and killed I think 2,000 people. I mean, just slaughtered them, and erased it from history. Nobody knows it," Glenn said.

They also discussed the first female millionaire in America --- a black woman.

"Walker. C.J. Walker," Owens said.

"Erased from history," Glenn said.

Owens brought up a piece of his own family history and his great, great, great grandfather coming to America as an eight-year-old boy in the belly of a slave ship.

"He died as a property owner, patriarch of his family, built the first church and school up to seventh grade, and he was a Republican in Texas. That was the nature of our race. We were looking to make sure that people respected us. And we showed how strong Americans could be," Owens said.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
