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.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
