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.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
