VIDEO: Congressman assaults student




Congressman Bob Etheridge

GLENN: America, if you are if you are anywhere but in your car right now, I want you to go to either Breitbart TV or the Drudge Report and I want you to click on the video, Congressman Assaults Student On Washington Sidewalk. You need to see this video. It is brand new. It has just been posted. I want you to see your future. I want you to see who is representing you. This is a Congressman. What is his name, from North Carolina.

PAT: Eldridge? Let's see.

GLENN: I've never heard of this guy.

PAT: I haven't, either, but it's a Democrat.

GLENN: This guy should be brought up on assault charges.

PAT: Bod, Bod Eldridge, unless they meant Bob Eldridge. Ethridge. Oh. It's Ethridge. He attended a fundraiser headlined by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and then he was asked some questions on the street.

GLENN: Now, we're going to play the audio for you and we'll show this to you tonight on TV, in case you're not going to be around to see it or you don't have a computer to see it, but it is I find this disturbing, deeply, deeply disturbing. It is a college student with a camera and there's obviously two people with a camera and a college student has a camera and he's in appears to be in a suit and tie and he respectfully says, do you support the Obama administration's agenda and the Congressman says, Who are you? Then he immediately slaps the camera out of this kid's hand. Then he the Congressman grabs the kid's arm and you can see him. He is squeezing, he is intimidating. He is really a bully.

PAT: It's out of control.

GLENN: Out of control.

PAT: Immediately out of control.

GLENN: And continues to we'll play the audio for you, continues to ask, but I want to describe the. He is pulling him in and you can see the whiteness of his knuckles as he squeezes harder on this kid's arm and the kid says, Let me go. Congressman, let me go, he then takes and continues to ask, Who are you? First of all, I don't have to identify myself to you. Who are you? The gestapo? The Congressman then puts him in a headlock. Who are you? Now, I don't know what this Congressman's excuse is, but I can't think of one that allows you to behave this way, not one.

STU: I can't think of one that would allow it to may have it did seem like he was instantly agitated, I was wondering if, perhaps, there was a history of these guys asking questions or doing something to him. That doesn't excuse his actions, but I just wondered why he would be annoyed immediately.

GLENN: Do you think anyone feels bad for the Hollywood starlets with the paparazzi? Do they excuse them when they do things that are less than this?

STU: Much less. I mean, you see the

GLENN: This is assault.

STU: The typical, you know, TMZ pictures of the guy slapping the camera out of the face. That's where he starts. It gets worse from there.

GLENN: You listen to the audio, now, the Congressman is just walking down the street. Then you hear the encounter with the college student. Here it is.

VOICE: Who are you? Who are you?

GLENN: He slaps it out of his hands.

PAT: Now he's about going berserk.

VOICE: Who are you? Who are you?

PAT: He's got him by the arm.

VOICE: We're just here for a project, sir.

VOICE: Tell me who you are.

VOICE: We're just here for a project.

GLENN: Now, that's when he's squeezing really hard.

VOICE: We're just students. That's all we are.

VOICE: I have a right to know who you are.

GLENN: No, you don't.

VOICE: Just students.

VOICE: Who are you? Who are you?

GLENN: Look at this.

PAT: He grabs him by the neck. Wow.

VOICE: Who are you?

GLENN: I've never seen anything like this before.

PAT: This is crazy.

GLENN: It is extraordinarily disturbing video. Yeah, here's why I find it uber disturbing. There is a move now in our country and you know that I am a big supporter of the police, I am a very big supporter of the police. There are bad cops but as a general rule, I could just let me stereotype less than the President does. As a general rule, the police do not act stupidly or racist. There are bad cops just like there are, you know, bad talk show hosts and, you know, bad bakers and bad journalists. There are there is racism. It is a human condition. There is corruption. It is a human condition. I am a supporter of the cops. However, I am really disturbed by the move now in three states and as many as 12 online to make it illegal to videotape a police officer in the line of duty. So, if a police officer comes up and is questioning you and you have somebody behind you with a videotape, they can go to jail. I'm sorry. Beg your pardon? I don't think so. Now, if you are obstructing justice, if you are if you are in the face of the cop and he is trying to do his job, then I support, absolutely, but I want the judge and a jury to see that videotape. I want to see the obstruction. Videotape sets you free. It doesn't it helps the cops. How many times have we seen the cops probably more it has helped the cops than it has hurt the cops, you know, those things on the dashboard cameras that they have, usually they help the cops

STU: Yeah. You've got to think that's one of the reasons they're there.

GLENN: It is the reason

STU: You know, so they could see the truth.

GLENN: Right. I don't like it when anybody tries to tell me I can't videotape. This kid could have gone and said, I was assaulted, I was assaulted by this Congressman. Well, who are you going to believe, America? A possibly I'm just making this up. I don't know who this kid is, possibly a republican college student that just hates Obama or the Congressman? You're going to believe the Congressman, most likely and we're getting to a point now where it depends on which side of the aisle you're on. People will believe the Congressman if they're a Democrat and for Obama, if that is a Democrat that's for Obama that was doing the assault. They can even see it on videotape and it won't change their mind. And the same would be in reverse if the parties were in reverse. We're getting to the point where the truth doesn't even matter. It does. It does.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

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:
