Starbucks is learning the hard way what liberal outrage really means

Starbucks is learning an important lesson. Despite every attempt at easing the progressives’ outrage following the recent arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia Starbucks, they simply can't win. Starbucks’ decision to close all locations on May 29 for “racial-bias training” has only led to further demands, deeper outrage.

And the mainstream media have baited it at every turn. The Washington Post, naturally, made the incident about police brutality: "Yes, we need to retrain Starbucks employees. But we also need to restrain the police."

The Huffington Post blamed white people, and even brandished a poll that somehow proves white people are out-of-touch. Before we cash in on a Huffington Post poll, just remember that HuffPo predicted Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 Presidential election with electoral votes by 98 percent, so their methodology is clearly in need of improvement.

Once again, progressives have made America out to be a festering, hate-filled KKK rally, funded by the patriarchy.

This shouldn’t be a story about race. It’s not a racial issue.

This shouldn’t be a story about race. It’s not a racial issue. Two people went into a business that has a “bathroom is for customers only” policy. They didn’t buy anything and were therefore not customers, but they still used the bathroom. Yet, the shrill progressives have stomped around, throwing tantrums, demanding things like a spoiled child. And like a spoiled child, nothing will ever be good enough for them.

The mayor of Philadelphia wrote a letter to the editor in the Philadelphia Inquirer, groveling in a plea for retribution. He uses the word “pain” every other sentence. Instead of standing up for his police, who were only doing their jobs, and who followed protocol --- there was no rude behavior. But that doesn’t matter.

No training, no apology, no public evisceration or self-flagellation will ever be good enough for this modern brand of Neo-Marxist Social Justice Warrior. They just don't stop being victims. Ever. And every time someone pays attention to them, every time someone caves, they grow a little stronger.

This calculated victimhood, however, is exactly what gives them their power.

This is textbook Neo-Marxism. By forcefully demanding that the SJWs, the Have-Nots --- aided by the mainstream media --- are powerless and that everyone else must shut up and do as they say, they are able to rise to the position of power that their entire ideology is hellbent on destroying. But, in doing so, they are able to become the Haves while enjoying the benefits of the Have Nots without taking any responsibility.

Marxist philosopher Slavoj Zizek has said the Left often dwells on past failures in order to “maintain a moralistic position” of powerlessness. This calculated victimhood, however, is exactly what gives them their power.

It is, in a word, ironic.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

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.
