INSANITY: 'Women's March' organizers irate over shutdown of 'Backpage' sex trafficking site

Federal agents led a sweeping campaign to finally shut down Backpage, an online prostitution empire, and feminists are outraged --- in particular, the Women's March.

You'd think an organization that claims to be interested in women's rights would celebrate the recent lawsuit against Backpage, the online brothel, which has perpetuated the subjugation and oppression of countless sex workers and rewarded countless sex traffickers. But then again, they are being led by Linda Sarsour, whose vision of feminism allows female genital mutilation and mandated burkas.

First Assistant US Attorney Elizabeth A. Strange described internal documents and emails from Backpage as “shocking in their callousness.” She added: “Backpage has earned hundreds of millions of dollars from facilitating prostitution and sex trafficking, placing profits over the well-being and safety of the many thousands of women and children who were victimized by its practices.”

Nearly everyone applauded the feds for shutting down Backpage. It isn't even a partisan issue. Most people and most policymakers agree that online sex trafficking is bad. It is objectively illegal, but there's no use offering objective realities to the brand of 4th Wave feminism practiced by the Women's March.

The Women's March tweeted: "The shutting down of #Backpage is an absolute crisis for sex workers who rely on the site to safely get in touch with clients. Sex workers rights are women’s rights."

"In the coming days, we will be sharing more about sex workers rights to uplift this critical issue. We’re all still learning and as always, we have to listen to the voices of those most impacted. #SexWorkIsWork"

The hashtag alone, #SexWorkIsWork, makes no sense at all. How about #SexWorkIsIllegal, #SexWorkIsDangerous, #SexWorkIsDestructiveAndHarmfulAndDemeaning? Most sex workers are confined to a life of addiction, desperation, control and manipulation. What world are these people living in? And at the same time, they're rallying around the #MeToo movement.

A lot of the 'powerful women' weren't women at all, they were underage girls.

Don't they understand that prostitution, sex trafficking and sex work are aggressive forms of sexual assault? Even if the Women’s March wanted to turn sex work into a powerful woman scenario, it's been proven that a lot of the "powerful women" on Backpage were being prostituted against their will. In fact, a lot of the "powerful women" weren't women at all, they were underage girls.

This newest iteration of feminism needs to reassess what's important. Because, at times, it just feels like coordinated contrarianism: They've decided to hate everything "white" and "male" and "capitalist" and "conservative."

Why else would they support sex work and Islam equally? Or at all? They could at least come up with a narrative that makes the slightest bit of sense.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
