Glenn Beck: L.A. schools teach AZ law 'un-American'

GLENN: Obama is meeting with the governor of Arizona today at 1:30. That's going to be — seriously that's going to be good. Los Angeles Unified School District board wants to teach in all public schools that the Arizona immigration law is un American. The school board voted unanimously on Tuesday to express outrage and condemnation of the law and to call on school superintendent to look into curtailing economic support to the Grand Canyon state.

This is what the commerce clause is all about, gang. This is it. The government can't be neutral on this. I don't know why anybody — I don't know why we're not pursuing this. Pat, tell me the history of the commerce clause. What was it for?

PAT: So that states wouldn't boycott each other.

GLENN: So you would have free trade in between the states and you wouldn't have the boycotts and you wouldn't have — that's what it was about.

STU: So this is a pure example of when this thing should actually be —

GLENN: Exact example.

PAT: But Barack Obama's already said, hey, I'm neutral.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I've indicated that I don't approve of the Arizona law.

GLENN: But?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think it's the wrong approach.

GLENN: But?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I understand the frustrations of the people of Arizona.

GLENN: But.

PAT: But.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And a lot of folks along the border that that border has not been entirely secure.

PAT: But.

GLENN: Entirely?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But in a way that is both true to our traditions as a nation of law

GLENN: Just get to the but!

PRESIDENT OBAMA: and as a nation of immigrants

GLENN: But!

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I'm president of the United States. I don't endorse boycotts.

GLENN: Okay.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Or not endorse boycotts.

PAT: Or not endorse.

GLENN: Or not endorse boycotts. Excuse me. You're the president of the United States. The United States. The commerce clause is to make sure that no state bullies the other state. To make sure that no states are beating up on each other, that commerce happens in the United States. The president taking a sideline is perplexing to me.

PAT: Even then they knew that commrece between the big states and the little states would be — I mean, if a big state like New York wanted to —

STU: Well, the commrece clause is there for that reason.

PAT: Commercely, you know, damage another little state.

STU: Right.

PAT: Let's say Virginia which, you know, commercely was much, much bigger than —

STU: Right. Much more commrece, yeah.

PAT: Than say Delaware, at the time you could really manhandle in a commrece way.

STU: Right.

PAT: Virginia could really commercely —

STU: Well, the amount of commrece was

PAT: The amount of commrece was staggering.

STU: Make sure commrece is flowing between —

PAT: So if you wanted the commrece to flow among the states.

GLENN: Are you just making fun of me?

PAT: And now it's even — I mean, commercely it's even a bigger issue because now you have states with, like, 44 million people.

GLENN: Just say it! Just say it!

PAT: Commerce!

STU: Commerce!

PAT: Commerce.

STU: Commerce. Not commrece.

GLENN: The commrece law —

STU: I didn't know about that the commrece clause.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: The commerce clause, that's actually the reason it was there so they don't boycott each other.

PAT: Oh, yeah. I mean, they wanted free trade among the states.

GLENN: Look, that's why the Constitution — the Articles of Confederation fell apart. Because you had states beating up on each other. You had the little states being bullied by the big states and they were like, wait a minute, hold it just a second.

PAT: And the founders knew the small states wouldn't have a chance, wouldn't have a chance against the larger states.

GLENN: And they weren't. The whole thing was falling apart because the big states were saying, you know what, we're going to attach a whole bunch of taxes because you're from Connecticut and we think that we can do a better job on that than you. And Connecticut would say, well, wait a minute, just a second.

PAT: Could have run them right out of business.

GLENN: Yeah, they could run the entire state out of business. And so the thing was falling apart. That's when they went to George Washington and said, hey, George, you've got to come up here because this thing's all falling apart. And the whole Revolutionary War, everything is for naught if we don't put together a new Constitution because the Articles of Confederation are too weak. The states are beating up on each other. And so that's when Washington said, have I not done enough for my country yet? He came up, he listened, they — this was one of the things, this was the main thing that they tried to solve is to be able to have commerce —

STU: Excellent.

PAT: Nice, nicely done.

GLENN: — be able to happen between all of the states. So now the president of the United States who says, "I'm not here to support; I'm not here to stop a state sponsored boycott."

PAT: Of course you are.

GLENN: The man —

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: The man doesn't understand the Constitution. Did he understand the Federalist Papers, did he —

PAT: Oh, he taught the Constitution for ten years, Glenn. Of course he understands the Constitution. He was a constitutional professor back in Illinois.

GLENN: No, he wasn't. He was a lecturer.

PAT: Oh, wait, what?

GLENN: He was a lecturer. He wasn't a professor. He was a lecturer.

PAT: You said he did something with the Constitution.

GLENN: Oh, he's doing a lot with the Constitution.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
