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.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
