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.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
