Failing to Identify and Fight Against White Supremacy Will Only Make It More Dangerous

One person died in the Charlottesville riots over the weekend after a man plowed his vehicle into a crowd of counter-protesters. Authorities including Department of Justice officials are investigating the incident, which Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday “does meet the definition of domestic terrorism.”

Ohio resident James Alex Fields Jr., 20, allegedly drove his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of people. He has been charged with one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of “hit and run attended failure to stop with injury,” NBC News reported. Terrorism and civil rights investigators from the DOJ are looking into the horrifying incident.

“It is garbage and it is poisonous,” Glenn said of white supremacist ideology on radio Monday.

He contrasted the backstories of Fields, who traveled from Ohio to North Carolina to be part of the white supremacist protest, and the woman he is suspected of killing. Heather Heyer, 32, was remembered as a passionate individual who opposed “any type of discrimination” by her close friends following the attack.

Glenn warned that failing to identify and fight against white supremacy will only make it more dangerous.

“White identity politics this weekend was deadly and it will only grow,” he said.

GLENN: The world, the mainstream media, Antifa, even the alt-right organizers would all have you believe what transpired over the weekend was just the most recent battle in an endless war of Americans between conservatives and liberals.

This is a lie. And anyone who won't point that out to you, stop listening to them.

The -- the country doesn't need more opinion. It really doesn't. It needs more facts.

Find those people who will tell you the facts, and I will back this up this half-hour. But let me tell you about a couple of people: Heather Heyer, she's 32 years old. A very passionate person is what her mother told ABC News over the weekend. She had strong beliefs. Even as a small child, she was fierce about defending her beliefs.

She died on Saturday afternoon, while defending her belief in a sensible act of violence that sent 19 to the hospital, broken and bloodied, and her to the grave.

Her mother said, "Heather's life wasn't about hate, and this young man, the killer, James Alex Fields Jr., this young man who ran my daughter down mistakenly believed that hate would change the world. Hate doesn't. Hate harms people. And I don't want anymore death brought about by my daughter's death," she said. "I want peace. I want the peace that she would want. I want change."

Amen.

I don't believe there is somebody within the sound of my voice that, when all is said and done, if they can find a quiet moment in their life and let go of the rage that builds in all of us -- it's natural. The world is being turned inside out and upside down on purpose. It's natural that you feel this.

But in a moment of silence, if I could promise you more of this and revenge, or this will stop and we could live side by side, I believe everyone within the sound of my voice would pick the second.

So James Alex Field, he's a 20-year-old boy from Kentucky, who until five or six months ago had been living with his mom in Ohio. Now, his mom learned about the incident for the first time during an interview with the Associated Press. She was home, watching her son's cat at the time, when he decided to ram his car into a crowd of people on Saturday.

She sounded like a lost child herself. The boy -- and I do mean boy, that left Ohio for Charlottesville last week, won't ever be coming home again.

She told the AP, she stays out of his political views. She said -- well, I want you to listen to this. Listen to exactly what she said, and tell me if it isn't really clear she has no kind -- she had no idea what kind of poison her son was drinking.

VOICE: I try to stay out of his political views. He -- you know, we don't -- you know, I don't really get too involved. I (inaudible) in his own apartment. So I'm watching his cat.

I mean, like I said, I don't really talk to him about his political views. I mean, he just -- so I don't really understand or what the rally was about or anything. So...

VOICE: Okay.

GLENN: Okay. She went on to say that he was involved in the Albright movement. She didn't even know that it was the alt-right movement, not the Albright movement.

Parents, don't let this happen to you. We need to know what's happening with our kids. And you need to understand that the world has changed overnight. We need now more than ever to talk to our kids. We need to know and make sure, the best we can, the kinds of ideas that they're allowing to take root in their minds.

The stories that we tell ourselves are really the only stories that matter. Because sooner or later, we end up acting those stories out, better or worse.

You tell yourself you're a miserable human being, and I promise you, you first will be a miserable human being. And then, it will grow. And you're a miserable human being that has no reason to live. And you will act on that.

Right now, we are all acting on the stories that we believe about ourselves and about others.

Today, I just want to talk to you about a story the alt-right is telling you. It is poisonous.

It is white nationalism. White supremacy. It is national socialism. It is garbage. And it is poisonous.

White identity politics this past weekend was deadly. And it will only grow.

Have we not learned our lesson? Will all of our treasure and every drop of blood drawn by the lash be spilled out again?

I thought we fought a Civil War over this. Enough is enough.

We got to get back to Sunday school, to real principles. Back to the basics. Back to the gods of the copybook headings, that fire will burn and water will wet us.

We were, all of us created in the image of God. Black, white, brown, yellow, red. All of us. All of us. And we are all needed. And there's nothing -- there is nothing that separates us, except our mindset.

We are all children of God. We all, generally speaking, want peace. Want to live with people leaving us alone, to raise our children.

We have to begin to honor that piece of divinity in ourselves and then in each other. Stop embarrassing and debasing yourself and your family by being -- by being sucked in and buying or excusing the lie that one's race is somehow more meaningful than just a color.

The only race we need to claim is the human race, because it's not the white race that is on the verge of extinction or the black race. It truly is the human race. And this time, we are forging our own chains.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
