In further efforts to curb speech, Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee recently introduced a new bill (the ‘Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023’) that is one of the ‘most unconstitutional and radical pieces of legislation proposed in I don’t know how many years,’ Glenn says. In this clip, Glenn explains the bill, which aims to prevent and prosecute acts of white supremacy (without really defining what ‘white supremacy’ actually is). Then, Glenn shows how this bill relates to similar moves throughout history that ultimately have NOT ended well…

GLENN: So let's -- let's start here, shall we? College kids now are learning to snitch on each other, through secret tip lines.
This is Germany, West -- I'm sorry. East Germany, under the Soviets. They had the Stasi.
And they would -- they -- they got people to snitch on each other.
That is the one thing that people have always said about America. They'll come over, and they'll say, Americans are so nice.
And they're so trusting. Well, it's not that we were that trusting. It's that Europe wasn't trusting. Nobody trusted each other.
Because for centuries, they've turned each other in, for one reason or another. So keep it to yourself. Keep it to your family. What do they say is if we're open. Because we've never had that kind of thing. So when George Bush first promoted, hey, you see something, say something. Call the White House snitch line if you see something that your neighbor is doing.
No. I mean, if I see my neighbor, and he's, you know, obviously something is wrong.
I'll call the local police.
Hey, can you just check this out?
But I'm not watching my neighbor, and snitching on my neighbor.
And that's what's happening right now. People are -- in college. This door room number, and this dorm room. Had a sign that said all solicitors must be able to define the word woman, and then the campus PC police come. Seventy-nine complaints at the University of Connecticut. There's a bathroom that is being identified based on gender.
Oh, my gosh. No.
Oh. There was some verbal remarks, directed at certain race. And gender identity at this comedian, that was on campus.
In Illinois, a student was reported for saying that there were only two genders, and reportingly not wanting to live with a roommate, who just makes stuff up in his head. That's no longer acceptable.
Meanwhile, to further curb speech, Sheila Jackson Lee, has introduced the leading against white supremacy act of 2023.
It is one of the most unconstitutional and radical pieces of legislation, proposed in -- I don't know how many years.
The leading against white supremacy act, it aims to prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime, and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime. Blah, blah, blah.
So if you engage in what is described as white supremacy hate, and you inspire a hate crime, well, if it was used in the planning, development, preparation, or perpetration of any of the crime, you're responsible.
And you go to prison. But they don't define exactly what white supremacy is. And white supremacy crimes are.
Now, seems like a problem. You know, maybe.
Especially when you say, there is no definition in the law of white supremacy ideology.
And then, you know, the conspiracy provision. It's -- it makes it illegal to publish material, that inspires a crime.
So if I publish something and somebody read it, some lunatic, and they were like, oh, my gosh. I've got to take this into my own hands. I'm going to go shoot down that Chinese weather balloon myself. This government would probably say, that was a crime.
And if they were white, and they're like, yeah. And white power!
I could be prosecuted. You could be prosecuted. It doesn't matter if they're mentally ill or not. This is kind of a -- a problem. Kind of a problem, for millions of Americans.
Now, this is all happened before. All of this has happened before. There is nothing new under the sun. The question is: Are we going to learn from history and recognize the -- the problems and recognize the -- did -- what did -- historically, what did people do? Did it work, or did it not work? Did they do something or not do something?
You can't just expect utopia to happen. Because utopia. You know what utopia -- is -- I mean, in a better world, it would be a coloring book. And it would be at best, fiction. The word utopia actually comes from the 16th century. And it was kind of a joke.
Utopia, it came -- you know, it was written by Thomas Moore. And he took the Greek prefix for not or no, and the suffix for place. No place.
That's what -- that's what utopia means. No place, or nowhere. Get it?
So I think the book by Thomas Moore is a prediction of communism. It takes place on a fictional island called Utopia. It's an island of slavery, where poverty is cured by harmony. Crime is solved by equity. Private property, money, been abolished. Social classes have been unmasked, for what they really are.
Conspiracy of the rich.
And utopia, the island nowhere, achieved a complete equality of goods.
Now, equality of goods. What they did was they just destroyed the meaning of all goods.
Because everyone shares in a utopia. And to devalue currency, precious objects are treated like trash.
People give diamonds to children, instead of marbles. They have chamber pots or toilets, made of gold. And even the chains on the slaves are made of gold, and traditional institutions mean nothing.
Euthanasia is common on the island of Utopia.
Because nobody really cares about the value of anything, including human life.
Utopians always claim to be humanist. I just want to do what's best for all humans. And they offer that utopian view. And, again, it is the basis of Marxism and communism. And really, it's just all a lie.
But it's a diversion. It's a delay tactic. Because people don't realize, this is a lie, until usually it's too late.
Because it's a slow boil.
Think of how -- you are accepting things now, that you wouldn't have accepted, 15 years ago. Ten years ago.
Ten years ago, if I said, men could have babies too. Every liberal would have said, not possible.
What are you talking about?
Well, that's what you're going to tell me in about ten years. No, I'm not. That's ridiculous.
You are not parroting and saying things that you know are nonsense.
I'm speaking to America in general.
And people are saying, right now, give me the power, so I can make you powerful.
Yeah. And the choice is always, it's going to be Armageddon.
It's going to be -- he's worse than Hitler.
NASA -- he's worse than Trump. And Trump was worse than Hitler. Oh, wow. And what was Mitt Romney again?
I mean, it's always a choice between utopia, we can't really define it. But we'll know it when we get there.
And we can't tell you how we'll pay for it. But it will all be sugar plumb fairies and lollipops.
Or. Go ahead. You can roast in the fires of hell, with Satan and Armageddon. Go ahead.
And they convince us, that the power of a nation should not belong to you. Everything belongs to you.
Everything in your life, all of your thoughts, your actions, they belong to you.
The things you have earned through merit, belong to you. And if you've, quote, earned something without merit, if you've just inherited it, you don't really own it.
You really -- something becomes yours, when you've earned it. But all that goes out the window. The power of a nation doesn't belong to people. It's stuff.
It should all belong to the state. So people, one by one, historically speaking, hand all of their power over to the state.
And then the state decides what people should be. What they can say. What they can watch. What they can listen to.
They define hate. You and I both know hate. We know hate when we see hate. We know love when we see love.
I can tell you the difference between love and sex. There's a big difference.
Love always wins. Sex doesn't always win. Utopians take the state, and turn it into the brain of society.
And it controls everything.
Now, think of this. This is from the 1600s. Think of this.
The state becomes the brain of society. With AI and all of the technology we have today, they are literally trying to be the brain of society.
And control everything and hold all of the power. It will do the thinking and deciding for everyone.
In America, the first utopian, was Woodrow Wilson, really.
The one with real power, he used centralization, and bureaucracy, to make a collectivism that Americans had never seen before.
And then he spread it in all the universities. He convinced Congress, to give, hand them their power, so he could use war and surveillance to make a war safe for democracy. FDR took the step even further.
He said, it would get rid of war altogether, with a little help from Josef Stalin.
I -- we've seen all of these things before, and America turned. Just in time.
Will we this time?
Because there's -- there's one more example, that we should learn from. And it is from China.
But remember, China is the new model, according to all the global leaders. All of the big capitalist leaders.
And all the leaders of the -- the world, including Joe Biden.
China is the new model. Well, let me tell you how they got there.
In a minute. Sponsored by preborn. You know, every once in a while, I get to give you good news. And here's some good news. You know how many babies you have saved?
How many babies have been born, just because of this audience?
It's over, I think 55- or 60,000 babies, in the last 12 months, were saved because of you.
Because somebody, if it wasn't you, somebody, you know, maybe in the car next to you, or the cubicle next to you, somebody was listening to this program. They were like, I'm going to donate 28 bucks. That bought an ultrasound for a woman who had come into a clinic, 55,000 of them, assuming there's no twins.
And they walk in, and they say, I think I'm going to have an abortion.
They saw the ultrasound, that cost 28 bucks. They didn't have to pay for it.
And that made mom go, I'm going to -- that's a baby. I'm going to keep my baby.
That's what you have done. And you can do it, for 28 bucks.
I think it's 140 bucks. And what do you get? Six.
I mean -- you really can save a bunch of baby's lives. Do it once a month, $28.
Be a hero. Dial #250, and say the key word baby.
Key word baby. Or go to preborn.com/Glenn. Find out all the information.

GLENN: All right. I want to talk to you about the great cultural revolution here.
Like every group utopian, Mao started with ideas. I got ideas.
Slogans, basically, that sound good. But don't really mean anything. See if any of these sound familiar to you.
Before long, the slogans are true.
This is how he made every aspect of life, political. That way, anyone who disagreed with him, was conspiring against China. The great utopia.
They weren't his opponents. They were the enemies of the people.
This is why utopians always combine academia with the military. The academics dream up the new utopias, and the military forces people into those utopias. And Mao is really clever about this.
He convinced people how they had a role in how things work. Your lives are political for a reason.
This is how he got students to snitch on one another. Then get kids to betray their own parents, all in the names of the state.
This is how you create a whole society of vigilantes. For Woodrow Wilson, he had the four-minutemen.
That was his good news. For Mao. The red guards. Young activists, who served as his unofficial enforcers. In colleges, I just told you what the snitchers were. And they think they are doing good, just like these others did. The tech world, isn't that really the enforcer of the government now?
One of the first utopians. One of the first utopians of the modern age, really was Mao.
He was the most prolific at death. They take power to destroy history. That's the first thing.
They say the world as we know it, China as we know it, has to be replanned. Reset.
Because everything you know is old, dusty, and no longer any good.
At the start of the cultural revolution, the red guard led a campaign to eradicate the four Olds.
I want you to listen. Pesky. Four Olds.
The four Olds. That they had to get rid of.
The old customs.
Christmas means nothing, Thanksgiving is a celebration of slavery, Fourth of July is a celebration. Get rid of the old customs.
The -- the old culture.
You needed new habits, and new ideas.
The old history, had to be swept away.
The old guard had to be swept away.
They started, believe it or not, by tearing down statues, and changing the names of streets.
Then they attacked anyone who tried to stop them. They destroyed people's homes. They publicly humiliated their opponents. And no one could stop them. Because people had already given Mao all their power.
Before long, the Red Guard was destroying cemeteries and factories and libraries and museums and temples. Wow, they were burning down their own cities. What happens is, the same story over and over again. They want to reform the big institutions of society.
But in the end, they only destroy the small institutions. Family, church, private property.
And they always start with the idea, that you have a duty to the state. And the group is more important than the individual. And if that individual is speaking out, they have to be shut down.
That was only the first installment of Mao's genocidal reign.
