'I Shouldn’t Have Said That': Confederate Flag Advocate Accidentally Lets Racial Slur Slip

Sometimes people sound reasonable right before they slip up.

On radio Friday, Glenn shared an unbelievable clip of an interview with a North Carolina man attempting to defend the Confederate flag.

Russell Walker of Aberdeen, North Carolina, attempted to bring a lawsuit against York County, South Carolina in June for removing Confederate paraphernalia from the main courtroom, WSOCTV reported. In an interview on the street, Walker explained why the Confederate flag isn’t racist, saying it was OK for people to disagree on its meaning … right before he called civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., a racial slur.

The York County main courtroom used to have a Confederate flag and portraits of two Confederate generals, but they were removed during renovations. Judge Jack Kimball dismissed Walker’s suit asking for the flag and the portraits to be restored, ruling that he had no standing to file such a suit in the first place since Walker doesn’t live in South Carolina.

"You’ve got to be careful of who you’re standing next to because sometimes people will sound totally reasonable," Glenn said.

"I don’t believe it’s a symbol of racism. I don’t believe it’s a symbol of slavery," the man said of the Confederate flag. "That’s my personal view, but how they feel is their business." After his slipup, he tried to cover it with "I shouldn’t have said that."

"It’s clear that that’s the way he refers to Martin Luther King always," Glenn said of the slur. He urged Americans to think about the company they keep and to be aware of these examples of racism. "America, wake up, this stuff is exactly what our black neighbors are talking about that we never see," he said.

GLENN: All right. We have Bill O'Reilly coming up in just about a half-hour.

Also, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who I love this guy, he is going to tell us a little bit about the latest decision regarding the Texas voter ID law. Ken Paxton will be joining us for that at the top of hour number three. I want to spend a few minutes here sharing with you a guy -- he's from South Carolina?

PAT: He's from North Carolina. But he's in South Carolina.

GLENN: Yeah. He's going down to South Carolina, and he wants to restore the Confederate flag. This is just something that I just want to play. You got to be careful. Because sometimes people will sound totally reasonable. And I want you to listen to -- I don't agree with him. But I want you to listen to -- he sounds like a pretty normal guy, until one thing slips through his lips. As he's explaining to the press that the Confederate flag is not racist and he's not a racist, listen up.

VOICE: Women feel about abortion. That's the same -- same type of symbol. Again, I don't believe it's a symbol of racism. I don't believe it's a symbol of slavery. That's my personal view. But how they feel is their business.

GLENN: Stop for a second. Stop for a second.

That sounds American.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Look, I don't think so, but that's my personal view. And if you want to view it a different way, I understand that. Sounds -- sounds reasonable.

VOICE: Hey, I go down the street, I see Martin Luther Coon. I shouldn't have said that. Martin Luther King.

PAT: Oh, my.

GLENN: Stop. Stop. Stop.

STU: Good God.

PAT: Good golly!

GLENN: Okay. So you know what's amazing about this, is it's clear that that's the way he refers to Martin Luther King always.

PAT: Oh, always. Always.

GLENN: Because he wasn't trying to make a point. He's just like, oh, see, you know I see on the streets, Martin Luther Coon -- King. Oh, I shouldn't have said that.

STU: No, you shouldn't have.

GLENN: Yeah, you're right on that one. You're right on that one.

STU: No, you shouldn't have.

GLENN: And maybe not just here. You should never say those things or think those things. But apparently you do.

STU: Wow.

PAT: Yeah. But I'm not a racist. I love everybody. I mean, some of my best friends are...

STU: Are, what? Don't finish that sentence, sir.

GLENN: You know, I just want to tell you, the banks are out of control. And they're colluding with the government. And the -- and the -- and the -- and the corporations, and they're getting rich, and we're not.

And, you know, I think that everybody really kind of understands -- and if you don't agree with it, that's fine. It's just these damn Jew bank -- I mean, I shouldn't have said that. I shouldn't have said that.

STU: I shouldn't have said that. I shouldn't have said that. Darn it.

GLENN: Darn it. Darn it. No, I love the Jews. I just think they all should be shoved into an -- I shouldn't have said that. Other room, I meant. That's what I meant.

STU: It's incredible.

GLENN: Because I'm going to give them cake.

It's crazy.

PAT: Your colors are shining through.

STU: Yeah, that's really, really -- and I will say that's part -- that is an effect of the way -- I am 100 percent behind people who say, "Let's out these white supremacists. Let's mock them. Let's expose their viewpoints." You know, there's these weird things now, where they're like -- there's these Twitter accounts that are taking pictures of the people in the rallies, and they're trying to give them consequences at their jobs and all those other things.

You know -- you know, those are weird.

GLENN: Yeah, I know.

STU: But what that does in the end is put these people back in the closet.

GLENN: Back in the closet.

STU: They don't admit it. I'd rather hear these idiot -- I'd rather watch every one of them walk down the street with a torch because, instead of this --

GLENN: Right. I want to know who they are. I want to know who they are.

STU: I want to know who they are. So I can avoid them.


PAT: And it's interesting too, because a lot of them are proud of it. They don't have any problem being racist. They're proud of it.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, I will tell you this, this should tell white people -- you know, you probably -- I've told this story before, and I don't remember what city it was in. And I don't want to say because I don't remember for sure. But I was there with the -- I think the chief of police, the head of this theater, and somebody else. Maybe somebody from the mayor's office. I don't even remember. And I'm standing backstage, and we're talking -- were you there, Pat?

PAT: No. But it was in Louisville --

GLENN: So I -- it was --

STU: I shouldn't have said that.

GLENN: No, it wasn't. It actually wasn't.

PAT: It wasn't there. It was in Nova Scotia.

GLENN: No, seriously, it was not in Louisville.

STU: Legitimately, I do remember where it was, and it was not Louisville.

GLENN: Yeah. And so I'm standing backstage. And they said, "We're on CST." I said, "I like to start the shows on time. You know, people come here. Let's start on time. And I can actually run over, I hear, from time to time. So let's start on time." And the head of theater and the sheriff and the police or whatever, they're all standing around, and they said, "Well, you're on CST here." And I said, "What's CST?" And they said, "You know, Colored Standard Time. Coloreds never run on time." And I'm like, "What? What? What?" I mean, I couldn't believe it.

And this kind of thing where this guy is talking and he sounds kind of reasonable --

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: -- warning. That should be a warning for you to wake up on who you're standing next to. They might sound reasonable, but they very well may not be. And also, America, wake up. This stuff is exactly what our black neighbors are talking about that we never see.

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

GUILLERMO ARIAS / Contributor | Getty Images

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752
