You'll Never Guess Who Wrote the Racist Message Targeting Black Air Force Cadets

Black cadets at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School in Colorado Springs, Colorado woke up one morning to find a racist message written outside.

In response, Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria gave a speech denouncing bigotry that went viral. But the school has since discovered that one of the black cadets at the academy was responsible for the hate crime, which has been revealed to be a hoax.

“It’s an immature teen who made a terrible decision,” Glenn summed it up on today’s show. He reminded everyone to look at each incident instead of immediately assuming a reported hate crime is fake or jumping on the bandwagon to use it as evidence of racism.

“Some of them are hoaxes. Some of them are real hate crimes,” he said. “Racism is something that affects all human beings, and it is a cancer in ours and any society.”

GLENN: Who is the author of your life? Who is the author of your life? What defines who you are? In late September, five black students woke up to find a message written on the marker boards outside their dorm rooms. The message read, go home, N-word.

The students attend the Air Force academy's prep school. They're hoping to become cadets at the Air Force HEP academy.

In the aftermath of Charlottesville and the NFL national anthem protests, those hate messages threw gasoline on the fire of the racial debate in America. How could this happen in one of our nations most prestigious academies?

The messages prompted HEP Lieutenant General Jay Silvera to gather the entire Air Force Academy student body and staff. And he rebuked them. If you can't treat someone with dignity and respect, then you need to get out.

Now, the video of his rebuke was viewed over a million times on YouTube. This week, the Air Force Academy prep school announced that they have one candidate less for cadet. He has been expelled because he admitted to writing the racial slurs outside of the dorm rooms on his black schoolmates.

Who was it? Turns out this racist incident was a hoax. The perpetrator was actually one of the five black students. Why did he do it?

Apparently, it was a weird attempt to get out of trouble he was in for some other misconduct at the academy. It's an immature teen who made a terrible decision, one he's already paying for, and one now that won't afford him the chance to attend the Air Force Academy.

This is not the time to gloat, however, and say, "See, these alleged hate crimes are hoaxes." Some of them are hoaxes. Some of them are real hate crimes. Racism is something that affects all human beings. And it is a cancer in ours and any society.

This message is obviously not getting through to the youth. So I'll repeat it. Your skin color does not define you.

Your background does not define you. Yesterday doesn't define you. Unless you let it.

What was it somebody said about being judged by the content of your character and not the color of your skin? Only your character defines you.

If we all spend a lot more time working on the content of our character, man, there wouldn't be enough time left to have racism real or imagined.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
