THIS is who the Black Hebrew Israelites are

Who are the Black Hebrew Israelites?

The path from the founders of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement in the late 1800s, to the group that verbally abused the Covington Catholic high school students in Washington last Friday is a complex maze. There are so many different groups, sub-groups and offshoots that it would take a week to untangle. So, I'm going to try to boil it down for you.

1886. Chattanooga, Tennessee. A former railroad worker named Frank Cherry established the Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of Truth for All Nations. Yes, that was the full church name. He mixed together elements of Judaism and Christianity and believed that African Americans were descendants of the original tribes of Israel. He preached that these Israelite ancestors were chased out of Babylon into central and western Africa, where they were eventually sold into slavery by the Romans. He preached that Adam, Eve, and Jesus were black. Cherry also preached that whites are inherently evil and hated by God.

Cherry's church formed the template for a ton of offshoots. Throughout the 1900s, these offshoots developed into three main tracks. There are "Black Jews," who adopt Jewish rituals but also believe in Jesus as the Messiah. There are "Black Hebrews," who strictly practice traditional Judaism. Then there are "Black Israelites," who are nationalistic and furthest from traditional Judaism and Christianity. The group that harassed the Covington students in DC fall into this third category.

The DC group calls itself "House of Israel." It evolved from the black nationalist movement of the 1960s and 70s, which branded Christianity as a foreign religion imposed by white slave masters on blacks. This group is on the extreme fringe of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, but see themselves as radical reformers of Hebrew Israelites across the spectrum who have gone astray. Even the notorious Southern Poverty Law Center characterizes this group as a "black supremacist" group, placing it on the same level as white supremacy groups.

The current "Chief High Priest" of this wing of the Black Hebrew Israelites has prophesied that a vengeful black Jesus will soon return to earth to kill or enslave all white people.

With that cheery message, small groups of Black Hebrew Israelite street preachers called "camps" station themselves at busy intersections in cities like Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore and Washington, DC. They rail against "white devils," which they believe are descended from a race of beasts spawned by Esau. Esau is the twin brother of Jacob (later called Israel) in the Old Testament. They also rail against promiscuous women, native Africans (for selling black Israelites into slavery), Asians, and call for the death of Jews and homosexuals. You hear a sampling of pretty much all of that on the viral video taken Friday at the Lincoln Memorial.

A former member of the Black Hebrew Israelites says they use fear tactics to break down new recruits and brainwash them. Recruits are urged to join camps and verbally assault pedestrians.

It's easier to go through airport security than to visit one of this group's places of worship. White people are strictly forbidden. If you're a person of color, you must explain to security why you're visiting and how you heard about the church. You have to swear you're not a cop, spy, or member of a rival Black Israelite group. Then you must swear before the security guards that you're "clean," including not having eaten pork or had sex for the previous 24 hours. They confiscate your phone and photo ID during the service. Then they pat you down. Once you're inside the first door you must register your name, address, and phone number. Then, you're handed a King James Bible. If you make it that far, a disciple then pours olive oil on your head as a final cleansing ritual. Now you can enter the main sanctuary. Good times.

So now you know their history, but what do they really stand for? What do they preach on American street corners? Were the things caught on tape during the Covington controversy an aberration or the norm? You be the judge, but be warned, what you're about to hear is highly offensive. The vast majority of their stuff can't even be broadcast on the air.

Who are the Black Israelites youtu.be

It's probably some of the most racist and bigoted language you'll ever here. Is this not what anti-fascists and the rest of the militant Left have risen up in mass to fight against? Where is the crowd of black clad millennials to stand against this? They'll show up to Berkeley to protest Ben Shapiro, but not someone saying THESE things?

OK OK I get it. They're saying all this about white people… so it must be ok then. In today's culture of relativism, we can let it slide… you know as long as it's just directed at WHITE PEOPLE. I'm sure they're perfectly fine with everyone else.

They hate every race or creed. And this is the only footage we could find that didn't have profanity. I couldn't even include the audio of them slamming other African Americans, Jews or Mexicans because it was so vile and laced with profanity that it's completely unairable.

So I ask again… where's the #Resist people? I got it, maybe they'd start caring if the Black Israelites came out as misogynist and anti-women. I mean, in this climate of "Me Too" that would surely be the final straw. But I'm sure they've NEVER been hostile to women, because otherwise we'd see the Women's March people, led by Linda Sarsour no doubt, holding anti Black Israelite rallies in Washington D.C. So they must not be anti women...

Imagine, just for a second, that everything you just heard was said by a group of white men wearing MAGA hats. They wouldn't last FIVE SECONDS without Antifa showing up. The wouldn't last TEN SECONDS before hundreds of people forced police to arrest them. And hundreds of videos would begin to pop up on both social media and blasted all over CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times… take your pick. It would be EVERYWHERE.

This is true racism. This is true bigotry. This was quite literally calling for a war on women. So where's the outrage? Why do we pick and choose what is or isn't racist, bigoted or misogynist depending on which side it comes from? The language is universal. It's like math. Racism is racism. But just because white kids in red hats aren't saying it, it's somehow not newsworthy? It's somehow not worthy to speak out against?

How would YOU react to hearing this on your local street corner? With anger? With fear? Anxiety? Maybe even rage. Nathan Phillips, the professional Native American activist, reacted by using the vile language directed AT HIS OWN PEOPLE, to make a statement - not at those speaking the words - but at a bunch of kids caught in the middle. The Covington kids reacted with a pep rally. Who do YOU think were the bigger adults that day?

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
