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."
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...
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.
