Glenn Beck: Department of 'Social Justice'?





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

Here we are, picking up the slack for the rest of the media again; they seem fairly disinterested in the New Black Panther case that was dropped by the Justice Department and Eric Holder.

Remember the footage from the 2008 presidential election? It's of New Black Party members who were standing in front of a polling location in Philadelphia in full uniform wielding a police-style baton weapon. They were clearly trying to intimidate potential voters.

Now how many times have you seen guys in uniform with baton weapons in front of your polling place? I know, it happens all the time, right? Well, a complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia against Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson. They were part of a national effort by the New Black Panthers to station members at polls and intimidate.

After the case was effectively won by the Department of Justice and a default sentencing was imminent in May of 2009, the DOJ made the unheard of move to suddenly file a notice of voluntary dismissal of the lawsuit for two of the defendants.

There had to be some reason for the sudden turnaround, right? Some logical explanation. Maybe the defendants were unaware that they were standing in front of a polling location and it was all a big mix up. Maybe they were very, very sorry for violating Americans' rights and engaging in an activity that African-Americans, of all people, should be offended by.

Or maybe they just really, really hate white people?

Oh, I'm sorry, that's really presumptuous of me. Let me ask Samir Shabazz directly: How do you feel about white people?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SAMIR SHABAZZ: I hate white people — all of them. Every last iota of a cracker — I hate him. Because we're still in this condition.

We didn't come out here to play today. There's too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white, dirty, cracker whore (expletive) on our arms.

You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some crackers. You're going to have to kill some of their babies. Let us get our act together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

OK, I think he hates white people. He doesn't like one iota of them. In fact, he wants to kill them. He also seems upset at black men in African garb who are with white women. Wow. And the Justice Department just let this guy walk?

Now, I'm not a justice expert, but I am a thinker. This doesn't really sound like justice. Maybe it's this new thing "social justice" I keep hearing progressives talk about. Nancy Pelosi cries about the rhetoric of the Tea Party; the media tried to paint people who want a restoration of our Constitution as racist or violent — but this man is both. Calling for people to kill white people and babies — and the DOJ does nothing.

They go after the "racist police officers" in Arizona and this "racist law" well, injustice maybe. I mean, I'm called a racist by various progressive blogs and critics because I support policies like the Arizona immigration law. Yet the DOJ can just walk away from these racists and Bill Clinton can excuse Robert Byrd's KKK past as just getting votes. Robert Byrd's actual KKK past can be forgiven, but being for smaller government makes you a racist?

When things don't make sense you have to come up with a different answer. Maybe the DOJ lost interest because of the testimony from former Justice Department lawyer J. Christian Adams, who says the NAACP lobbied the Obama administration to dismiss the Black Panther case:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

QUESTION: Do you know whether anybody was consulting as to whether to proceed or the merits of the case with NAACP legal defense fund?

J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS, FORMER JUSTICE DEPARTMENT LAWYER: Well listen, this is not firsthand, but I was told by section management that NAACP members or staffers were talking with a voting section attorney in March of 2009 and asking when is this case getting dismissed? Which of course is interesting to hear for the first time that someone is thinking about dismissing the case that you're in the middle of building.... It seemed strange.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

But why worry — as Nancy Pelosi has warned us, she has heard rhetoric like this before. In case she missed it the first time:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SHABAZZ: I hate white people — all of them. Every last iota of a cracker — I hate him. Because we're still in this condition.

We didn't come out here to play today. There's too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white, dirty, cracker whore (expletive) on our arms.

You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some crackers. You're going to have to kill some of their babies. Let us get our act together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

There has to be some reason for the flip, because seeing video the guy who wants to kill white people, standing with a club outside a polling location really doesn't help the defense's case. Maybe it was a little favor for all the support the New Black Panthers gave Barack Obama during the election. I interviewed their top guy leading up to the election and, in one of the creepiest moments on TV, he called Barack Obama the only hope for America's salvation:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MALIK SHABAZZ, NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY: If you had to understand that your ancestors had been in slavery and bondage for 300 years, that your ancestors had been denied the right to become policemen, firemen, attend schools and get mortgages, how would you feel if...

BECK: I'll tell you — I would feel — I'll tell you, I would feel — I would feel so unbelievably proud that that country has made so much progress that the richest woman in America is Oprah Winfrey and possibly the next president is also an African-American. I'd feel pretty darn good that we've made an awful lot of progress.

Obama's message is to come together, yet your message — according to your website — is the trials of blacks only, by all black juries, end of all black cooperation with police departments and a separate country for African-Americans. How is Obama your man?

SHABAZZ: Obama is my man, because I believe he can change America and I pray to almighty God that America will listen to and follow Barack Obama, black or white or whoever you are. I say that Barack Obama is the true salvation for America and to bring us beyond the negative and the nasty and injustices that have caused persons like Reverend Wright or myself to speak out. Barack Obama, I pray, Glenn, that you will support him —

(END VIDEO CLIP)

He's praying that Obama would get us past the injustices. Isn't this case being dropped an injustice?

Why would Barack Obama want to side with these nuts from the New Black Panthers who were clearly intimidating voters? You have to stop thinking like a rational human being and start thinking like a radical one. Because these tactics are accepted as the norm in the radical world.

Compare the 10-point plan for the original Black Panthers with the New Black Panthers' plan — these guys don't associate with each other, but they are both pushing the same ideas. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

But let me back up for a minute and take a look at who this president is surrounding himself with — his circle of influence. We know about ACORN's use of intimidation tactics. The president has made it clear that he's walking in lockstep with ACORN:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA: And I definitely welcome ACORN's input. You don't have to ask me about that. I'm going to call you even if you didn't ask me.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

And remember what Bertha Lewis recently told her people:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BERTHA LEWIS, ACORN: It is going to dwarf the internment during World War II.

They are coming and they are coming after you.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The president has also made it clear how closely he works with SEIU:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: Just imagine what we could do together. Imagine having a president whose life work was your work.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

And SEIU has not hesitated to use intimidation and violence:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ANDY STERN, SEIU: We took names. We watched how they voted. We know where they live.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The president hired Van Jones — and they knew who he was:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

VALERIE JARRETT, WHITE HOUSE SENIOR ADVISER: Van Jones, we were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House. We have been watching him really — he's not that old — for as long as he's been active out in Oakland —

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Jones was head of Ella Baker Center and started the communist STORM organization whose manual stated: "Revolutionaries need to be militant in street actions. As leaders in the fight for liberation, we should be role models of fearlessness before the state and the oppressor." They also said: "Marches were be militant and confrontational, regularly defying police commands and occasionally plunging through police lines and barricades."

So the president had no problem associating with militants who intimidate.

But militant intimidation can sometimes go one step further and become terrorism. Bill Ayers founded the terrorist organization The Weather Underground. Jeff Jones, also of The Weather Underground, helped draft the stimulus package through the Apollo Alliance. Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayers' wife, was part of the Gaza flotilla and they partnered with Jodie Evans from Code Pink.

So homegrown terrorists are literally deciding where to send your tax money.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
