WARNING: Nazis Are ‘Feeling Legitimized’ After Charlottesville

“A Nazi committed an ISIS-style terror attack,” Glenn said of the horrifying incident Saturday in Charlottesville that left a woman dead and 19 people injured.

Beginning with a white nationalist protest Friday night, alt-right protesters clashed with Antifa counter-demonstrators in the Virginia town. The white supremacist protest on Friday was sparked by the city’s decision to take down a Confederate-era stature of Gen. Robert E. Lee. During the rioting on Saturday, a white supremacist allegedly drove into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing Heather Heyer, 32.

Glenn condemned both the white nationalists and the Antifa rioters for their extreme ideologies and violent actions.

“This is a fascistic movement on the left and the right, and it’s just gaining steam again,” he said.

Nazis are now bragging because President Donald Trump condemned “many sides” rather than specifically calling out white supremacists.

“They’re feeling legitimized, and they’re planning their next moves,” Glenn warned.

GLENN: Hello, America. Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. Here's what you need to know to start your day: Violence erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend, when white nationalists clashed with counter protesters. One of the white nationalists, a national socialist, otherwise known as a Nazi, slammed his car into the crowd of protesters, killing one person and seriously injuring several others.

So here's what's being said in the media: The left immediately was quick to blame Donald Trump for all of it. The right is quick to say, "Hey, well, it's Antifa. Antifa. Antifa."

Okay. I've got a different opinion. But let me start with this one: Donald Trump is not to blame here. The one to blame is the sick, demented racist who drove his car into a crowd of people. Period. Those people who are saying, "This is the right finally fighting back," you're part of the problem. "Well, you should blame the people who are just trying to change our history by pulling down statues of Robert E. Lee," you're part of the problem. "This is about the black race under attack. This is about the white race under attack."

This is what I want you to hear: The only race we should be worried about today is the human race, because it seems to me it is on some of its legs. If your media source isn't telling you that, it's maybe perhaps time you find a new one. We begin, right now.


GLENN: Do you have the audio?

Today, there are two radical fringe groups waking up and thinking that their cause has gained something they didn't have a week ago, and that is legitimacy.

In responding the way he did to Charlottesville be with the president was both right and wrong.

DONALD: We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It's been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It's been going on for a long, long time. And there's no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society. And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play, or be with their parents.

GLENN: I don't even understand that last part. But here's where this went wrong: After a year of rightfully calling out the left for refusing to say radical Islamic terror, why would the president not say white supremacist racist? White supremacist national socialists.

We are either a nation that opposes evil in its whole, in its entirety, or we are nothing. You can't tell me that you worry about the country, if you really only truly have empathy for your side. If you only see the problem on the other side.

I was -- I was taught something very, very valuable, that has played a big role in my life, beyond charity: I was taught by Jon Huntsman Sr. -- he's a dear man, who has done more to cure cancer and really changed the world than most people will do in ten lifetimes -- for all the Hindus.

Here's what he taught me: As I was standing in his -- in his hospital, where he was asking my wife and I for a donation, I said, "John, I'll make you a deal: I will give to your hospital, but in exchange, I need you to teach me how to be charitable. I grew up in a poor family, and we didn't have any money. And I want to be a responsible steward. And I -- I need to know how to navigate the waters of charity."

He shook my hand and said, "That's a deal I'm happy to make." And he told me, "Here's your first lesson: You have to care about all of it, the entire human condition. You can't just care about cancer. You can't just care about heart disease, gay rights, whatever it is. You have to care about all of it."

That's what we're missing here. We all seem to only care about our little slice of the pie. We're never going to heal. We'll never come back together, if we don't have malice toward none and charity toward all.

This morning, there were Nazis bragging that they weren't mentioned by the president. They're bragging about how they are now being grouped alongside the entire political right in this country. And they're feeling legitimized, and they're planning their next moves. Richard Spencer is already planning his next mega rally in Texas. And I will be there, quietly, to stand against.

I saw two groups this weekend. While one group displayed the Nazi flag and spewed hate and violence, the other group displayed Soviet and communist flags, spewing hate and violence. Just like the Nazis, who I remind you are national socialists, Antifa, the anti-fascist group and the rest of the radical left, are waking up today feeling, "We are legitimate." Because where is the outcry from the left? This didn't just begin in Charlottesville. This didn't begin with Donald Trump. It didn't begin with Barack Obama.

This is -- this is what left the pockmarks that are still on the walls of banks on Wall Street. This is a fascistic movement on the left and the right and it's just gaining steam again. It's been going on almost weekly on college campuses since the election. Watch the videos from Berkeley. Compare those videos to this weekend in Virginia.

There is absolutely no difference. None. And through it all, not a peep from the left.

This has been a giant failure of biblical proportions by the people we have chosen to lead us. If there was ever a time you could actually get Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi on the steps together, shoulder to shoulder, standing united, this was it: A Nazi committed an ISIS-style terror attack. A communist paramilitary group was rampaging through the streets!

We have -- we've been against Nazis since 1941. I think there's a T-shirt: United States of America against national socialists since 1941. This was the moment to unite in defiance of evil. This was the time for the leadership to come together and show us and the world what we stand for, what our principles are, what we believe in.

But once again, our elected officials have failed us. I wasn't surprised.

We're in a really dangerous time. For some unfathomable reason, both the right and the left are willing to let these 3 percent? One percent? It must be crazy. Ten, 12 percent of our population, these fringes, these crazy edges of our society co-opt into their movement. And how are they doing it?

"Well, what about? Well, yeah, but what about? Yeah, yeah, but what about?"

I am so sick of whataboutism. Has the left screwed up the past decade? You bet they have. Has the right? Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Has the left done everything they could to get rid of the crazy people amongst them? No, they haven't.

But has the right done absolutely everything it could to cast out these racist Nazis? Not even close.

Coming up later on the program, I'm going to remind you what a Nazi is. Not the -- not the, you know, marching and the salutes and all of that. None of that. Because you know that. Not the gas chambers. We got that.

What is a Nazi? What is it that they believe?

And once you know that, why won't the right excoriate and make sure they are standing nothing -- nowhere near?

Their movement has nothing to do with American constitutional conservatives. Nothing. Nothing.

Likewise, Antifa, the radical left -- let me put it this way: What would the Democratic Party of John F. Kennedy have to say about those guys?

His entire family, including I think his crazy evil dad, would be shouting from the rooftops. These people do not belong to us. But we don't have anything from either side.

Hate and violence is ripping apart American cities, ripping apart American campuses, putting a boot on the throat of free speech all over the United States. And those we have elected to represent us -- represent us are using it to posture.

For those of you who listen to me and have been with me at Restoring Honor, Restoring Love, who were with me in Birmingham, Alabama, these are the times now that I told you would come. When the world is being turned inside out and upside down, that you needed your credibility, that you needed to know that you were going to be pushed up against the wall, and you were going to be angry. But you needed to know exactly who you are.

The only thing that you really need to do as a start, is simple. But it will make you a targeted person. And that is, call evil by its name.

Radical Islamic terrorism is evil, and we are against it in all of its forms. White supremacists, neo-Nazi national socialists populist terrorists, we are against them in every way. Antifa communist terrorists, we stand against them in every way. They are evil.

There has to be a concerted effort to delegitimize these fringe groups. Because that's what they are. And calling a spade, a spade -- calling evil, evil, is the best place to start.

The most ridiculous part about all of this is how the left and the right have become so tribalized, that we can't even find our way to each other in the face of evil that we all have recognized in the recent past and are clearly on record since 1941.

I don't have to ask what's happened to us. I know what's happened to us. The question is: What are we going to do about it?

And staying in this tribal fight is only going to cause more chaos.

Why would Biden try to DEPORT persecuted Christian family while leaving border WIDE OPEN?

Why would Biden try to DEPORT persecuted Christian family while leaving border WIDE OPEN?

The Romeike family has spent the last 15 years living in America, seeking asylum after facing persecution in Germany for homeschooling their children. But recently, immigration officials ordered them to self-deport back to Germany by October 11, despite having followed the law. But why is the Biden administration going after this Christian family while keeping our border wide open to illegal immigrants? The father, Uwe Romeike, and his attorney, Kevin Boden of the Home School Legal Defense Association, join Glenn to detail this latest chapter of their story and explain what they plan to do next.


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: We told you a story, maybe it was 2010 or '11. I don't remember when it was. This story has been going on forever.

There is a German family, they were living in Germany. They were homeschooling their kids.

That's illegal in Germany. They pulled their kids out.

Because look at the crap we're now teaching our kids.

You want your kids in that in homeschooling is illegal. They faced fines, adding up over $10,000.

They were threatened with the loss of the custody of their children.

And their children were taken, brought to school. By the police.

All right? That's how bad it got. In 2010, they came to the United States, and asked for asylum. Because of their religious point of view. They were -- they were threatened with all kinds of stuff.

So they granted -- they were granted asylum in the US.

But the government appealed. Two years later, the Sixth Circuit court finally revoked the asylum status. Supreme Court with not hear the case.

At that time, the attorney was told by the Department of Homeland Security. They would grant them indefinite deferred action, and not deport the family.

They went to the ICE office, once a year, as directed. They did everything that they were supposed to do.

They were just getting a document signed based on, so they could get employment authorizations in America.

They have lived within the law the whole time. They came here, the right way. Thee weeks ago, they were told to come back in a month with all of their documents. Because they were going to be deported.

That includes the five children that came with them in 2008. As well as, the two that were born here now, in America.

The oldest children that got married to an American citizen, last year. The first grandchild was born here, two weeks ago.

And they're supposed to leave America.

If they go back, they will face the same persecution, high fines.

It will financially ruin their -- their family.

They'll have jail time. And lose the custody of their kids. And the older kids, that were homeschooled, here in America, it will not be counted in Germany.

So they will not be able to go for higher education, or get good jobs.

Because it won't count.

With the hundreds of thousands, that are coming across our border, every month, illegally. And the left says, it's all about asylum.

And persecution.

This case is. We're going to talk to them in 60 seconds.

So let me tell you about Real Estate Agents I Trust. According to a recent article in the Washington Examiner, new home sales fell last month because of the disastrous effects of Bidenomics, catching up in the housing market. The Fed has continued to raise rates since March of last year. Homeowners, got locked into a low rate of the pandemic are holding back on selling their homes. And because of the economy, new homes being built is starting to go away again.

Here's the good news: The homes that are on the market, hot commodity.

Why is that good news?

Because this is where the really great real estate agent, gets a chance to shine, to sell your home for the most amount of money. And then be able to get you into the home you want.

That's really hard right now. You need the best real estate agent. You can find them at Just tell us where you're buying or selling.

We will give you the best real estate agent, after we vetted all of them.

We will give you a recommendation. We want you to interview yourself. They don't work for us. It's a free service to you.

All right. Uwe Romeike is the dad. He is also with Kevin Boden.

He is a Homeschool Legal Defense Association attorney.

Did I get any of the -- of the story wrong, Uwe?

UWE: No, it was all right. Thank you for having me on. The only thing that was different, was wrong, was the initial day or year when we came was 2008.

GLENN: 2008.

UWE: We have been hear for 15 years now. Yes.

GLENN: Okay. And I remember we talked to you earlier, because your case was pending, I think at the time. And you have lived now here for 15 years.

You have been good, solid citizens. You -- you have jobs. You're not depending on the government. Correct

UWE: Correct. Yes.

GLENN: And what happens if you go back to Germany? What happens to you and your family?

UWE: Yes. Since we were born here in the United States. They would come with us, of course. They are now ten and 12 years old. And six and seventh grade.

And we were homeschooled. 80 percent. That's the earlier situation with custody. Earlier custody.

And fines. And prosecutions. And all these things.

That would be the same as before we left. So there wouldn't be any way to homeschool in Germany.

GLENN: And why are you homeschooling in Germany? What is this really all about?

UWE: Well, you know, we have several reasons. But initially, we started homeschooling, because our two oldest children who at that time, were in school for two or three years, their -- their personality changed. They became with withdrawn. They developed headaches, stomachaches.

Doctor couldn't say there was any physical reason. It was all in terms of bullying, and having a fear to go to school.

And then later on, we found out, that also, what they were taught at school was diametrically against what we as Christians believe.

So there were so many reasons we didn't want them to go there again. And once we started actually homeschooling, they relaxed. They became their old selves again.

And they have children now, and they're all grown up. They have good jobs here.

And so everything turned our world. So we wanted to do the best for our children. We wanted to do that.

GLENN: And so you have two older children, that married Americans.

UWE: Yes.

GLENN: And they have -- they're being deported as well?

UWE: Yes. Because -- citizenship, of the paperwork, hadn't gone through yet.

So it's the process. So they're now all in tutoring.

GLENN: Okay. So let me talk to your attorney, Kevin.

Kevin works for HSLDA. It is a nonprofit organization. Making homeschooling possible, and making sure they're defending the homeschoolers. Kevin, what is -- what is happening here?

KEVIN: Well, Glenn, thanks for having us on. I know you've been supporting the family, for many, many years. Going all the way back to 2014. And we appreciate that.

We don't know what was going on. We do know, they were told to go back in four weeks. And bring their passports, to self-deportation. We also know that ICE, you know, has the ability to execute prosecutorial discretion. And to not deport the family.

And so we know what they've been told to do. And we know what's in the authority to do.

And for some reason, we don't have yet. They have been told to get ready to go.

GLENN: Huh. Paragraph all I can think of is -- I mean, what would happen if they went on vacation?

And, you know, in Texas.

And were staying at a friend's house.

I mean, what would happen?

KEVIN: Well, we don't know. They are under an order of supervision that they had been under for the last 10 years. Which does require they show up to these ICE meetings.

So they've been directed to come back. And they have an obligation per this order of supervision to show up.

And, you know -- as you you know, Uwe and Hannelore have been law-abiding individuals in this country, since the day they set foot on American soil. If you notice like I do, they will do nothing but comply with the law because that's the type of character that this family has.

GLENN: I have to tell you, I am so disgusted by this. This is truly a family that needs asylum. They don't have the First Amendment in Germany. We have it here to protect people. This is what it means to bring in those who are persecuted.

Not the hundreds of thousands of -- of young men, without families, coming across our border, in the middle of the night.

They did it the right way.

And this -- I tell you, Kevin, this bothers me so deeply.

When I first heard this story, a couple of weeks ago.

I think I said this on the air. It was a very dark day for me.

I had a really -- Stu will tell you, you had a really hard time going on.

Because I thought, if this government, with everything that is out of control, has the time to take this family down.

They have such malice, that it -- that it -- they're doing things that we can't even imagine. If they're coming after this family, that's malice.

And it is -- and it is not good for any American.

KEVIN: Well, and, Glenn, it's inconsistent with the Department of Homeland Security's own policies. I mean, there's a guidance memorandum from 2021, Secretary Mayorkas.

And the three priorities are a threat to national security, threat to public safety, and threat to border security.

So, I mean, you tell me, where does the Romeike family fall into these three priorities?

I mean, they are the lowest of the low, in terms of being here in the United States.

So, you know, my thought is, just follow your own priorities. They're good priorities.

But why are we not putting resources in the US government to actually enforce the priorities, that they have identified?

GLENN: So what's the plan?

KEVIN: Well, we have a petition we're circulating. We're hoping to present that to President Joe Biden.

GLENN: We're there!

KEVIN: Well, it's to demonstrate broad support.

Of course, we want to just demonstrate that the country is behind this family.

Representative Harshbarger has filed a private bill in the House of Representatives. Many before the House Judiciary Committee.

We would like members of Congress to support that private bill. They can't cosponsor. They can support it.

Then Jim Jordan in that committee or subcommittee, can request a report from ICE, with this bill, that would effectively be a stay on any removal proceedings. So we're asking the judiciary committee. The House Judiciary Committee, to request that report.

To tell -- ICE is telling them, what's going on? Why are you deporting this family? What's going on? Give us the actual -- give us the reason. And that would provide temporary reprieve to Romeike and family, and then long-term, we would love a private bill in the Senate as well.

And, you know, those are a couple of the angles, that we're looking at right now. Which would allow them to stay and to continue their life hear.

As we pursue some longer term strategies.

GLENN: Okay. So here's. If you're listening now. If you're not listening, then how you are hearing me?

But if you are listening, I want you to go to HSLDA., which is R-O-M-E-I-K-E. Rome Ike is how you spell that.

And sign this. I am on the website right now. And I am going to sign my name to it. I never sign petitions. But I will sign a petition for this family.

This is totally outrageous. What else can we do to help this family?

KEVIN: Well, Uwe can speak as well. What he would say also is pray. This is a faith-filled family. And they love the Lord. And as he's told me many, many times, we appeal to the most high. And the most high can take action and supernaturally intervene.

And I know for their hearts, that's something that everyone, regardless of whether they sign, donate, whatever, that's something they can do.

GLENN: Can I invite the -- I'm saying this without any knowing of my schedule at all here. So I apologize to my production staff. But I would like to invite the family especially the kids that were born here and the older kids.

I would like to interview them. And make sure that people see this family. And what you're really all about.

Can we get you guys to come in for that?

UWE: We would love to, yes. Thank you.

GLENN: I am -- I have done more apologizing to foreigners for my country in the last five to eight years, that I thought I would never have to do this. We have done so many immoral things. We have done so many things against God. We have so lost our way, we don't even know who we are anymore.

And my apologies for what our country is doing to you and your family. This is absolutely immoral.

And I thank you for being people that still love our country. Despite what we've done.

UWE: Yes. And we love the American people. And it's really my knowledge, that it is the best.

I think most Americans are good people. And believe in people. Question people. And we are very thankful for all the support, prayer, and people who loved on us, when we first came hear.

So we feel very blessed to be here. Thank you for all your support.

GLENN: You bet. Thank you. We'll be in touch.

Guys, thank you so much.

It's, which is Romeike. R-O-M-E-I-K-E.

I have to tell you, this is one that I will go camp outside of their house and I will surround their house with like-minded, loving Christian people who will just not break arms on our knees. We just go and kneel around their house, in droves, and we lock arms and we just pray for this family.

And if they have to haul -- if they have to haul me to jail so they can get to that family, so be it. I have had enough. I have had enough. And I don't want to be a part of -- of anything that is violent, is trying to overthrow anything.

But there comes a time where we have got to stand or kneel!

Begging and -- and relying on the protection of Divine Providence.

Why Conservatives Need 'Indoctrination Centers' | Liz Wheeler | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 196

Liz Wheeler, host of “The Liz Wheeler Show,” wants everyone to know that our children are being attacked by “forces of Marxism.” It’s NOT an exaggeration, and her new book, “Hide Your Children: Exposing the Marxists Behind the Attack on America’s Kids,” shows exactly how the far Left has the nation’s youngest citizens in its crosshairs — especially within America’s public schools. In this episode of “The Glenn Beck Podcast,” Wheeler joins Glenn to outline exactly where these attacks are taking place. Plus, they discuss why Planned Parenthood recently has become a major force in the trans rights movement, the woke villainization of white, Christian men, and the biggest misconceptions regarding AI (artificial intelligence).

GOP & Fox News Are DEAD: Glenn Beck Reacts to 'WORST' Presidential Debate | Glenn TV | Ep 307

Were there ANY winners at the second GOP presidential debate hosted by Fox Business and Univision? Glenn calls it “the worst debate of my lifetime” and reveals who was the REAL loser. BlazeTV hosts Stu Burguiere, Steve Deace, and Pay Gray join with their raw reactions to candidates North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and former Vice President Mike Pence. All hosts agree the candidates failed to provide the conservative base with a real conversation, especially since many of the questions could have been asked by MSNBC. They also address the bizarre appearance of Fox moderator Dana Perino introducing Hillary Clinton at a recent Clinton Global Initiative Event. And what about the elephant NOT in the room? Was Donald Trump, who chose striking UAW workers over debating candidates, the only winner? With the leading GOP candidate facing 91 felony indictments, Steve Deace says, “This is how we do assassination in America today" and that it’s vital we choose a strong second-place nominee … FAST.
