Glenn Shares a Heartbreaking Story From a Human Trafficking Survivor He Met

Glenn Beck spoke about his experience going down to Mexico over the weekend to work with Operation Underground Railroad on radio Monday. He met with up-and-coming businesswomen who didn’t let their history of being trapped as sex slaves stop them from being forces of nature.

“These are powerful, powerful women,” he said.

One woman was sold into sex slavery at just 12 years old by a man who promised he would marry her and protect her from her abusive family. During a five-year period, she was raped by dozens of “clients” per day and forced to have abortions when it resulted in pregnancies. Now at 20, she is a mom after begging to be allowed to keep her baby after three abortions.

“He only let her keep the baby, she found later, because he had more control over her,” Glenn told the horrifying story.

Ultimately, her story is one of hope because of her incredible strength and resilience.

“This woman has gone through everything, and she’s not crying,” Glenn said. “She’s getting on with her life, and she’s making a profound difference with her life.’

GLENN: Hello, America. I was -- I was in Mexico this weekend with Operation Underground Railroad. That is the antisex trafficking operation that we helped fund. This audience really puts into action. They have saved people all over the world.

This time -- I know that we have some operations going on, but I also spoke to a couple of people -- several people, but two in particular. And I want to bring this home to the statues and now the crying Nazi here in America.

I spent the weekend with some truly remarkable people who I'm going to introduce you to in the coming days. These are powerful, powerful women. Some of them in the Mexican version of Forbes magazine. I think six of them named Mexico's 100 powerful women -- most powerful women. Six of them were from slavery.

People that were told that were powerless their entire life, literally. One woman, Carlita, who I met, her mother used to beat her. Her -- her uncle, starting at five, would rape her. At 11, she ran away from home. At 12, she was in the arms of a -- of a 20-year-old who said he loved her and would marry and take her away and had nothing to fear and then sold her into slavery and would beat her. Would burn her with an iron. She came back one time, and a guy left a hickey on her neck. And so he said, "Oh, you're getting hot with the clients, I'll show you what hot is," and did unspeakable things with an iron. But he didn't just stop there: He made her have abortions so the very next day she could go out and perform up to 60 men a day, every day, for five years.

Her daughter was born -- this is after three abortions. She begged him, "Please -- it was her -- his child. He would rape her. And it was his child.

And he only let her keep the baby, she found out later, because he had more control over her. And then he would begin to burn the child.

This woman is one of the strongest women I've ever seen in my life. She's 20 now. She's 20.

And there is no messing with this woman. She was in a meeting -- and I'm going to introduce you to her. When you see her whole story, it will blow your mind. She was in a meeting, asked to speak at the Vatican. She was in a meeting with main, I think European rabbi. The pope, who was Pope Francis. I think the Dalai Lama was there. The -- what was it? The Hindu nun that is the hugging nun. I don't know if you've ever seen her before. But all of these leaders. The Grand Mufti from Iran was even there. All of them -- every religion, all to hear her speak. And about halfway through, she stopped and she looked at them and she said, "You know what, I think I need to pray for you." And the pope was like, "Okay." And she prayed for them, not the other way around.

This woman has gone through everything, and she's not crying. She's getting on with her life. And she's making a profound difference with her life. Another woman I met was a labor slave, which is happening here in America. We just don't want to hear about it. It's happening in Virginia, is one of the hotbeds. Our government won't look into it because the Saudi Arabians are involved.

Slavery is happening in California, mainly with Asians that are shipped over here in cargo bins and they're brought over here to the United States and they're sold to Americans to be slaves.

This woman was a labor slave in a dry cleaning place. What's a labor slave?

Well, she actually had a chain around her neck and a chain around her waist. She was a labor slave for four years. The last two -- I can't tell you the number of broomsticks that they broke over her head, beating her.

They also did wonderful things with an iron. She had to iron 20 hours a day. She slept standing up. She was only allowed to go to the bathroom every two days. Only allowed to go to the bathroom every two days. I don't even know how that works. But if she did go to the bathroom, they would beat her. But she didn't really have to worry about it because by the end of it, she was drinking the water out of the iron and eating the dry cleaning bags because she had nothing else.

They pulled almost all of her hair out. Her scars from the torture and from the actual chain around her neck and chain around her waist, the scars are still there.

You'd never know it.

I spend Saturday with them, and then I go home to the hotel and I turn on the TV. And we're talking about the freaking statues? How embarrassing.

Your life is affected by a statue? You're pathetic. You better hope that Darwin is not right. Because if he's right, they're stapling a tailback on the back end of you.

You can't handle the statue? Who the hell looks at those statues and says anything other than, "What the hell is that? Why? Why do we have that guy up there?"

"I was so crippled. I just couldn't function."

Oh, my gosh. Get a grip, America. Is this really what we've turned into, a bunch of sniveling brats?

"Mom, where are my cookies?"

Let me play -- let me play -- do you remember last week, the audio of the Nazi that was saying junk about Donald Trump? Remember how tough he was?

Listen to -- listen to him spout off now about Donald Trump and his -- his Jewish son-in-law.

VOICE: I'm here to spread ideas, talk, in the hopes that somebody more capable will come along and do that, somebody like Donald Trump who does not give his daughter to a Jew.

VOICE: So Donald Trump, but, like, more racist?

VOICE: A lot more racist than Donald Trump. I don't think that you could feel about race the way I do and watch that Kushner bastard walk around with that beautiful girl, okay?

PAT: Tough guy. He's tough.

GLENN: Yeah, he is a tough guy. Until this weekend.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Now, here's how -- here's who you're afraid of, America. This is who you're afraid of.

Listen to him now, over the weekend, because they had an arrest warrant out for him.

VOICE: I contacted the local police. I called the Charlottesville Police Department. And I asked them -- I said, "I have been told there's a warrant out for my arrest." And they -- they said that they would confirm it. But I could find this out if I -- excuse me.

GLENN: He's crying. He's crying. He's crying.

VOICE: That I could find this out, if I wanted to go to the local magistrate or something like that. But with everything that's happening, I don't think it's wise for me to be, you know, going -- going anywhere. This is a state of emergency. The National Guard is here.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

VOICE: You know, so I don't think it's a good idea for me to go there, frankly.

And I don't -- I don't know what to do. I've emailed Steven Tenney of the Keene Police Department. (crying)

PAT: Uh-huh.

VOICE: Sorry.

PAT: It's okay.

GLENN: We're supposed to be afraid of this guy.

VOICE: I have emailed Steven Tenney of the Keene Police Department. He's one of the cops that came there. (crying)

He's one of the cops who saved my ass when I had to pull my gun in Keene.

GLENN: Okay.

VOICE: And I emailed him, and I said, "I don't know what to do. I need guidance. I want to be peaceful. I want to be law-abiding."

Okay? That was the whole entire point of this. And I'm watching CNN talk about this as "violent, white nationalist protests." We have done everything in our power to keep this peaceful.

PAT: Oh, no. This is sad. We have tried to be good Nazis. We've tried to do all the good Nazi things. (crying).

We tried to do the right Nazi stuff, and what happens? (crying)

It's getting to the point to where you can't even do good Nazi stuff in this country and get away with it. (crying)

GLENN: I cannot believe -- I cannot believe --

(chuckling)

PAT: That's amazing.

GLENN: -- that the Nazis overseas are going, "Good Lord, the American Nazis."

VOICE: You know, I know we talk a lot of (bleep) on the internet, right? But, like, literally Jason Kessler applied for a permit, like, months ago for this. Okay?

PAT: Okay.

VOICE: When they yanked our permit, we went to the ACLU, and we went to court and we won.

PAT: And we won. (crying)

VOICE: We've been coordinating with law enforcement the entire time. Every step of the way, we've tried to do the right thing.

And they just won't stop, you know. You know, we have done everything in our power. We have used every peaceful and -- and lawful means by which to redress our grievances.

GLENN: Stop.

We are the first people in human history who has members of the Nazi party leadership who are probably still on mommy and daddy's insurance!

We're supposed to be afraid of this guy? America, get a grip.

Get a grip. You white supremacists who think that whites are somehow superior over everybody else, oh, my gosh. Hello, Mr. 1849. Read a book.

All of -- all of you Antifa members, hello, Mr. 1920. You were all in the dustbin of history, and America rejects the communists and the Nazis. I think we did that about 1940.

I think you can read anything about the Nazis -- kindergarteners can read anything about the Nazis and know: They're pathetic. They're evil and pathetic.

If you think that's the answer, you better check yourself because you may be evil, but you're definitely pathetic. And the same thing -- let me just grab the big book, the Black Book of Communism. Why don't you read that for a day?

You Antifa members. Really? You can't even handle speech.

And for the rest of the country, you think you can stop these people? How are you going to stop the Nazis?

Our grandparents actually had a spine. Our grandparents actually worked for a living. Our grandparents actually did their best to be strong individuals.

What are we doing? We're offended by everything. We're offended by everything. I just don't know how I could possibly go on. I just don't know.

Do you know how ridiculous we look as a nation? Forget about the president. We got Nazis and communists running our lives. And it's maybe -- maybe 10 percent of the population. And 90 percent is cowering in the corner.

I'm not afraid of the Nazis. I'm not afraid of the communists.

We surround them. You know who I'm afraid of? Pathetic weaklings that cannot handle anything.

Let me tell you this: No one controls your story, but you. Your life is a blank piece of paper. Nobody writes anything on that paper, but you.

You want to be powerful, start believing in the power of the individual. Start believing in yourself. No statue -- oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. Andrew Jackson, I see that statue. Do you know what he's saying about me?

No. Because it's a statue. And the actual Andrew Jackson has been dead!
