Amazon enlists THESE hate mongers to fight against... hate groups?

How do you know when there's a hate group lurking in America that you need to watch out for? The Southern Poverty Law Center, of course. The SPLC is the all-seeing eye that scans the land for hate. Then, when they find hate, or at least their definition of it, they add that group to their hate list so we can all avoid those groups and feel much safer.

The SPLC's latest target is the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian nonprofit group that defends religious freedom cases in court. The ADF has played a role in 52 victories at the Supreme Court over the years. So, the Left needs to take them out. Cue the SPLC.

The Alliance Defending Freedom was recently banned from the Amazon Smile program. That's the program in which customers can elect to give a small cut of their Amazon purchase to a nonprofit organization of their choice. Amazon Smile kicked the ADF out of the program because the SPLC determines which groups qualify.


Their reason? The ADF is currently before the Supreme Court representing the cake shop owner who refused to make a gay wedding cake.

How did the SPLC get to be chief hate enforcer? Well, they're actually self-anointed. They claim their moral capital from the fact they were founded in 1971 by a white guy in Alabama to fight racial injustice. Never mind that the KKK was virtually nonexistent at that point, it turns out sounding the alarm about the threat of Klansmen is fantastic for fundraising.

You don't build a half a billion dollar endowment by limiting your hate group list to quacks like the KKK and Nazis. Like any business, you must expand.

So, that became the SPLC's formula – shine a spotlight on hate groups and see the cash flood in for the legal takedown of those groups. They've been doing it ever since. They spend more money on fundraising than actual legal work. You don't build a half a billion dollar endowment by limiting your hate group list to quacks like the KKK and Nazis. Like any business, you must expand.

Why Amazon is taking advice from the SPLC, which is essentially a PAC for the Democratic Party, is anyone's guess. But it's a safe bet that Amazon's leadership finds a lot more in common with the SPLC than the Alliance Defending Freedom. That's why Planned Parenthood is still allowed to participate in the Amazon Smiles program.

When common sense leaves the building, it leaves a ton of absurdity behind.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
