White Farmers’ Land Will Be Seized in South Africa Without Compensation

What happened?

South Africa’s parliament voted last week to take land from white farmers and not pay them compensation.

“We must ensure that we restore the dignity of our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land,” Economic Freedom Fighters party leader Julius Malema said.

Because this has gone so well before …

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, who took office in mid-February, has vowed to speed up the seizure of land from white owners.

“This original sin that was committed when our country was colonized must be resolved in a way that will take South Africa forward,” he said.

Ramaphosa has said the land must be be transferred in a way that doesn’t disrupt food production or encourage violence. In the past, redistributing land hasn’t gone so smoothly. Zimbabwe’s land transfers resulted in increased violence and neglected farms that didn’t produce food.

What else should I know?

There’s a petition circulating that asks President Donald Trump to bring white people evicted from their own land in South Africa to the U.S. That’ll go over well.

Glenn’s take:

Obviously, this is a bad idea that we’ve already seen played out in Zimbabwe. But Trump taking in the white farmers would only create more problems.

“It’s not good,” Glenn summed it up.

GLENN: Hey, have you heard what's happening in South Africa?

STU: No, I'm an American citizen, so no, I have not.

GLENN: Yeah, most people haven't heard. The new president has just said, the time for reconciliation is over.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: And we're going to confiscate all property from white people.

STU: Now, that's worked out well when it's been attempted in the past.

GLENN: Well, no. They it did in Zimbabwe, where they took all the white farmers -- and everybody starved to death.

STU: Yeah, that was an issue. A minor concern.

GLENN: But this time -- this time, the president of South Africa has said, we're going to do it without the food storage problem.

STU: Oh, that was the big problem with Zimbabwe. Because they came out right off the bat and were like, we want food storages because of the result of this.

GLENN: Right. Right.

STU: They're going to push the other way?

GLENN: No, they're going to push the other way. So that will be good.

STU: That's an interesting twist on the policy.

GLENN: And the time for reconciliation is over. Not talking about that. Nobody is even -- really? The most successful, stable country in all of Africa.

STU: Yeah. The continent all chases South Africa. If they start going that way --

GLENN: Yeah, it's not going to be good. It's not going to be good. It's not going to be good.

And there's now a petition for Donald Trump to let the Afrikaaners HEP into America because they're losing -- they have no place to go. They're losing all their property, all their wealth, everything.

It could be a full-fledged race war. And can you imagine? Donald Trump. Eh, no to Somalia, yes to the white guys in Africa. I mean, that's just not going to --

STU: Just to piss off Chris Cuomo, it may be worth doing. But can you imagine what CNN would do if that actually happened?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. It's not good. It's really not good. So we got that going for us.

Hey, I was thinking a lot about the whole, you know what the problem is, guns. I was thinking about that this weekend. And I'm reading a book on personal responsibility.

And it got me to thinking, maybe -- hear me out. Maybe guns are not the problem.

STU: It's time we do something, Glenn. This same old argument. This same old position.

GLENN: I certainly was remember. Could you just write -- I want you to literally write that down. We must do something. Because that's going to take on a whole new context in the next 15 minutes. And we'll go there next

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

WATCH: Glenn on Tucker: After Chauvin Verdict we CAN come together

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.

Glenn joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to discuss a less political way forward.
