GLENN: Here's the thing. I'm so sick of hearing about this race thing. Have you noticed that it is that they are not pointing out things that disagree with their thesis here. For instance, in your own personal identity do you think of yourself as a member of your race first or an American first? I'm agriculture American. You ask me do I consider myself Christian first or an American first? I'm going to say Christian first and here's why. I say a Christian first because my Christianity, my faith actually builds my faith in this country. My faith in God actually builds the faith in our founding and our founding documents. In my faith, one of our articles of faith is obey the laws of the land. My faith makes me a stronger citizen. My race means nothing. What does your race mean? You think of, "I'm a white person first." What kind of racism would that be? "I'm a white person, you're darn right. Then I'm American." 4% of whites think of themselves, their race before their country. 45% of African Americans think of their race first. Americans first, 91% of whites, 46% of blacks. Do you have more in common with you do you have more in common with the people of the same class as you or with the people of the same race? Isn't this a quintessential racist question?

Who do you have more in common with? People who are in your class or people who are in your race? Class, whites, say 79%. Blacks say 60%. Race, whites say 15%. Blacks say 36%. We shouldn't be separated by color. You have more in common with those of the same color. Why is that?

There's this new study out and it's driving me because it's you know what? There's a whole section in this study out that says lists a bunch of statements and asks, does this make you angry. One of them should be, this poll. Does this poll make you angry? Yes! It does. It generally has bad things like companies polluting the environment, does that make you angry. Hmmm. Yeah. Athletes making million dollar salaries, does that make you angry? Hmmm. No hang on just a second. Are they black? The government raising taxes on gasoline, blah, blah, blah. Then some blatantly racist examples: A black family moving next door to where you live. A black person serving as President of the United States. Okay, these are racist. Hello. By the way, the way they present the poll is key. They talk about people having negative feelings towards blacks. If you say you don't want to have a person living next to you that is black, then yes, you have negative feelings about blacks but are you racist? If this makes you angry: Black leaders asking the government for racial equality in the workplace. I don't know, that kind of makes me angry. Does that make you angry? I mean, not angry but I'm like, yeah, that kind of pisses me off. Do you know why? It's a loaded statement. The term "Black leaders," who does that bring to mind? The self appointed black leaders. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton. That's who that brings to mind. And Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? This is the way the question reads to people. People like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton asking the government for their idea of racial equality in the workplace. Does that piss you off? It's their idea of racial equality. If they wanted a real answer on who was racist, they could have easily worked in, you know, where did the question "African Americans being treated equally in the workplace." Does it piss you off when African Americans are treated equally in the workplace? No. Of course not. But that's not what they wanted. You had to re you had to rework and reword the question. What else shows racism? Well, they don't give their entire formula away but look at some of the questions. Does Barack Obama's relationship with Reverend Wright his former President show you Barack Obama would be a better President? Now, the question is broken out to whites only, 41% say it makes him a worse President, 2% say better. But all respondents, the ratio is 34:5. So two things are clear from the polling. Jeremiah Wright is viewed very negatively by almost everybody. That's a good sign for America, the guy who says white people invented the AIDS virus to kill black people, not real popular. Jeremiah Wright is viewed slightly more negative by whites than all races but does that make them racist? Does blacks view him more positively than other races, are they racist because he says that whites invented AIDS to kill blacks. By the way, we can't answer any of those questions because for some reason or another they didn't break out the "Blacks only" category. Why not? It's almost like the study is designed to show whites as racist. Will race influence your vote? 18% say yes. You racist. Unless you break it out. More likely to vote for him? 9. Less likely to vote for him? 9. I guess the people who just want to vote for him because he's black and not white kind of racist kind of cancels out the person who's white and just doesn't want to vote for him because he's black racist.

Do black people have too much influence? 14% say yes. But take a minute to remember the ad of McCain and all of his houses. Do you remember that? How many times do they hit McCain on how rich he is? There was a story in Drudge Report yesterday: He's got 450,000 cars. Why did they do that? Because five and a half times as many people think rich, the rich have too much influence. And by the way, do blacks have too much influence? 14% say yes. How many of that 14% go back to the original question about Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson? Black leaders. 86% of whites feel sympathy for blacks at least occasionally, most at least moderately often. 91% feel 91% of whites feel admiration for blacks at least occasionally. The vast majority is at least moderately often. What kind of survey is this? 91% feel admiration for blacks? Have you ever thought, "Gee, I admire those black people an awful lot." Have you ever thought that? I never have. I have thought, that Condoleezza Rice really is impressive. I have even thought Barack Obama, look where this guy came from. And then I thought, yeah, look where this guy came from. But look where this guy came from. He did it. I have more admiration for the job that he has done than he does. Either that or he just believes he's the Messiah because you can't do it but he can. But I've never thought, gee, I feel sorry for those blacks; gee, I have admiration for those blacks.

Then they go through a long list of attributes and ask which one describes a specific race. Now, one of the big findings this is the one you are seeing everywhere the big findings is that 13% of whites think lazy applies to blacks, extremely well or very well. Of course, among all voters it's actually a combined 13%. So whites think lazy applies very well or extremely well by 13% to blacks, 13%. That's whites. But the combined number is also 13%. So wait a minute here. Assuming that blacks would say zero, Hispanics must be more racist than whites. Or... Hispanics, blacks and whites all by a number of 13% think that lazy describes blacks. Which is it? I don't know. But somebody, unless it's perfectly balanced, is more quote/unquote racist than whites are. And by the way, nowhere in this survey did they ask how would you say whites? Would lazy describe whites? No. It's not in there. And believe me, I've met my fair share of white people that are lazy. I've been to a fast food restaurant lately. Tried to get my order right. I've seen people busting their butt behind the counter, and I've seen people who could give a flying crap that they are at work. I don't know which color I've seen more lazy people of, but I know I've seen a lot of lazy people. Point is, laziness like racism, not a black/white disease. It's a human disease. That's the way it is. But you're not going to get that from the American media. No, no, not during the election, not before the election, probably not after the election. If he loses, definitely, definitely not after the election.

VOICE: It's a deadly disease and it's only getting deadlier. It's racism. How can you tell if someone you love has racism? Symptoms include frequent use of vulgarity and racial slurs, racial profiling, making baseless accusations, showing favoritism, voting for Republicans, noticing cultural food trends, color based basketball pickup game recruiting and, according to the media, residency in West Virginia. Racism can be difficult to detect in some cases but if you suspect someone you love has this disease, consult your doctor. If you cannot afford a doctor because of racist Republican healthcare policies, simply check the skin color of the patient. If they appear to have a white tone to their skin or think Larry Byrd was the greatest player of all time, they do indeed have racism. Racism, it's like a racist country club, only white people allowed. This message brought to you by the Damned Whitie Coalition.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

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:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?
