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.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."
