Glenn Beck: Inconvenient Segment - Who is the racist?

GLENN: But I found a story today that I want to share with you, new story about a couple that is doing some things that some would say is racist. You tell me, you tell me how you feel about this story. This is from the Associated Press. Dateline, Atlanta. Maggie and John Anderson of Chicago vowed four months ago that for one year they would try to patronize only Caucasian‑owned businesses. And remember, this is in Atlanta. The white empowerment experiment is the reason John had to suffer for hours with a stomach ache and Maggie no longer gets that brand‑name lather when she washes her hair. A grocery store trip now is a 14‑mile odyssey. We kind of enjoy the sacrifice because we get to make a point. So far the Andersons have spent hundreds of dollars with Caucasian‑owned businesses from grocery stores to dry cleaners. The couple has established a foundation to raise funds for Caucasian businesses and an annual Caucasian convention. We have the real power to do something, to use the money we spend every day to solve our problems and empower the white race, Maggie Anderson said recently at a meet‑and‑greet in Atlanta.

May I just stop here for a second? I know everybody's going to call me a racist for saying this, but if they want to shop at a white‑only store and it's their money, I don't have a problem with it. They can do whatever they want. So they are white people wanting to shop at a white store. A white‑owned store, a white‑run store, a store with all white people in it, that's fine. I think, you know, you're idiots. Why don't you look for value. You know, why don't you look for something. But they have the right to be that idiot. They are not racist. They have a right to do it. I have a right to disagree.

There are one million Caucasian businesses in the United States accounting for more than $100 billion in annual sales according to the national Caucasian Chamber of Commerce. The latest U.S. census numbers report that Caucasians have more than $800 billion in expendable income every year. One of the businesses highlighted ‑‑ I would think that number by higher ‑‑ by the white empowerment experiment is Brenda Brown's Atlanta Wine Boutique shop with a growing Caucasian clientele. She said the project can help overcome the problems many Caucasian consumers lament. Lewis Peeples, 45, lives in a Caucasian neighborhood in southwest Atlanta but didn't think to spend his money with Caucasian businesses only until a friend told him about the project. Quote: So often we make purchases and decisions and aren't even mindful that there's a need to support our own white businesses, said Peeples. Now I'm reaching out, making sure that I know I have an option when I look to make a purchase. Two months ago he committed to patronizing Caucasian‑only businesses and found a Caucasian dry cleaner just ten minutes from his home. Even when he was dissatisfied with his Caucasian doctor, he was able to find a new one.

Okay, this obviously is not, this obviously is not about a couple shopping in only Caucasian stores. This is a story from the AP in Atlanta about black couples that are only shopping in black stores. I'd like to file this one under "Imagine if this story were about a white person." You're a racist because you want tighter border security. I'm somehow or another a racist for wanting tighter border security on our northern and southern border. I'm somehow a racist for wanting tighter border security on the southern border, the northern border, and asking for our ports to be secured and asking for tighter security with our Coast Guard. That makes me a racist.

But here's a couple that the media can hold up and say, look, look what they're doing. Daddy had a tummy ache. Mommy had to drive a long, long, long, long, long way because they won't buy medicine from white people. And nowhere in the story from the AP do they have anyone saying, well, wait a minute. Do you think this story would have the same vibe to it if it were about daddy had a tummy ache but he wouldn't buy any kind of medicine from a black man? That person would be tarred and feathered. Now, this isn't about double standards in the media. We get the double standards in the media. We either believe in an integrated community, we either believe that there is no difference between people, or we don't. I suppose ‑‑ and again you have the right to do whatever you want. You have a right to shop at places where you think they reflect your values, but are our values dependent on our skin color? I mean, I don't care what the color of the skin, what the nationality is, what their creed is, what their religion is. I don't really care what it is. If they give me the best value and the best product and they treat people right.

We just made these posters that say this business is a 9/12 business, we believe in these values and these principles, that you could post them in your place of business. But I have to tell you, I guarantee you ‑‑ this is the first time I've told you that they were even available. I don't even know, are they available on the website? See if they're available yet. I can guarantee you, because I wrestled in my head: Should we make these available? Should we have these? I guarantee you they're going to be saying ‑‑ people are going to say that's code language, that's code language, that's for tea partiers. Are they? They are available? Where are they? Under what? The story? Do you know?

STU: I don't know. I will try to get that answer here. I'm just getting a yes from our person.

GLENN: So they are available, I'm sure in the studio store at GlennBeck.com.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: But there are things, there's one for your family, for your house and there's one for your business, you know, one that says our family believes in these nine principles and these twelve values. I think it's great for the kids. And then there's one for the business. Because I would use my money to frequent a store more often. If I went into a dry cleaner and there were two of them there and one of them said this is the value, these are the values and the principles that we have and we commit ourselves to those and live there, we do these things and this is how we believe our business and our lives will be more successful and our country will be more successful, I will go and I'll visit that business. And if they indeed are those people and they are offering me the best value, I will shop there. But that's about, dare I say it, content of character and not the color of the skin. But maybe that's just me and it's old‑fashioned, what is it, the politics of the past? I thought it was pretty universal, but what do I know. I'm no Martin Luther King. I'm just a thinker.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
