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.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.


During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision?
