LEFT RUN AMOK: Ted Bundy was only TED BUNDY because he was white

The left has found yet another way to be openly racist, all the while appearing "progressive" and "woke." This time, they're accusing white people of enabling serial killers. Or maybe they're saying that white people are naturally serial killers. It's a little hard to tell over all the hysteria. Anyway, I'll break it down for you in a minute.

Here's a little wisdom from an anonymous user on Reddit:

When you're allowed to say the absolute craziest things you want to, and you've cowed everyone around you into silence, the things you say are just going to get crazier and crazier.

I can't think of a better example than a recent example of hysteria "journalism" in a publication I'll leave unnamed because I don't want to give them the exposure.

RELATED: Wait, 'white woman' is now a disparaging term? I can't even.

At first look, it appears to be an article about the new Netflix series about serial killer Ted Bundy, "Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes." In reality, it's an unhinged rant about the evils of white men. In other words, it's full-on racism.

The article's title says it all: "Ted Bundy Wasn't Special Or Smart. He Was Just White"

You'll have to hear it for yourself to believe the mental gymnastics that the writer devoted to proving their agenda.

What Bundy did have was the power of being a white man in a society that reveres them and has implicit faith in their abilities. This privilege gave Bundy the ability to make even the most heinous of crimes take second place to his personality.

How's this for a misguided rant:

We don't need Ted Bundy to be reminded of the white male privilege so embedded in American society. We see it when white men are given lenient sentences for rape and manslaughter because they have promising futures or because they were raised with such affluence, people think they shouldn't be held responsible for their actions. We see it when dozens of people are shot dead in churches, schools, and newsrooms and lawmakers take no meaningful action because the perpetrator isn't Brown or from the Middle East. We see it when women are targeted because they left an abusive relationship or turned down a man's advances and it barely makes a blip in the 24/7 news cycle. We see it when Ted Bundy's name is cemented in pop culture but his victims remain supporting acts in his story.

That passage is a textbook example of virtue signaling. Plain and simple. The author is shrieking out to the world that they are woke!

In 2019, it's time to undo Bundy's delusions of grandeur and remember him as he should be: as a gutless creep who could only feel power by preying on the vulnerable.

Yes, exactly. That's exactly how we see him. Or, worse, really, most people see him as the presence of evil itself. Which is exactly why people are rolling their eyes. Because it is crazy to blame Ted Bundy's evil on his being a white man.

It's a lie, plain and simple. A denial of fact. But the left lost any respect for those ideals long ago.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
