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

Jason Whitlock: Here’s why black men & black Americans relate to Donald Trump

Black celebrities like Kanye West & Ice Cube aren't alone. In fact, sportswriter Jason Whitlock says it shouldn't be a surprise that more and more black men are supporting Donald Trump. He says that unlike President Obama, Trump actually "has a record" of helping black Americans. And, because he's an alpha male, Whitlock says the president's fearlessness is something black men relate to. Whitlock explains why Trump nearly convinced him to register to vote, and he describes how his long-time Democratic mother reacted when she experienced a softer side to the president.

Megyn Kelly: Media coverage of President Trump is ‘DISGUSTING’

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Bill O’Reilly: 'Be cautioned' if you think Hunter Biden story is enough to nail Joe

Bill O'Reilly is back! He joins Glenn to discuss the second — and last — presidential debate of the campaign season and he comments on whether or not Trump did enough to convince the average, uninformed voter of Joe's blatant corruption overseas. O'Reilly explains the origin of the Democrat narrative on Russian interference, why moderator Kristen Welker tried to stay off the Ukraine topic, and whether or not he believes Joe will be taken down by stories that mostly center on his son, Hunter.
