Two recent, viral videos — both showing small children targeting police officers — show we’re currently living in a ‘real-life version of Lord of the Flies,’ BlazeTV's Jason Whitlock tells Glenn. Like the characters in the book, children in our society are falling into total chaos, brutality, and depravity, he says. It's due to a lack of respect for our nation, for law enforcement, and for American values. And, ‘once you impose that mentality on the culture, this is the kind of chaos that will just become more and more pervasive.’ So, Whitlock explains why he believes only a ‘spiritual awakening’ can save our nation now…

GLENN: Jason Whitlock, host of Fearless. How are you, sir?
JASON: I'm great, Glenn. How are you?
GLENN: Well, I'm good. You know, I saw two videos last week. I saw these children punching a cop. Hitting a cop. Little kids. I'm sure you saw this too. And then a 4-year-old. A 4-year-old picking up a gun and shooting at the cops. And I thought, is this -- are we at a new level now? What is happening to us, Jason?
JASON: You know, I talked about this last week. And it's like, we're living in a real life version of the novel Lord Of the Flies. And young people are, you know -- they crash an airplane. And they -- a bunch of kids survive on this island. And they descend into total chaos. And brutality. And depravity. Because there's no adult supervision. Because there's no faith in God. And that's what's happening with young people. There is no adult supervision. And so they're descending further and further into depravity and chaos and foolishness. And -- and when you look at -- you were asking, is this organized? And, yeah. I think all of this is organized. That people are trying to undermine America, have promoted the environment, the disrespect for authority. The disrespect for the country. The disrespect for law enforcement. And once you've imposed that mentality, on the culture, this is the kind of chaos and depravity, that's going to become just more and more pervasive.
GLENN: So how do we get out of that? Is anybody -- is anybody seeing anything good happen, in the black community, towards police officers, for instance?
JASON: Well, as it relates specifically to the black community, I think it's -- it's what the entire American community is going to require. And that's a spiritual reawakening. It's the only hope. As this culture as become more and more secular, and more and more godless, it's just going to become more and more depraved. And, again, you talk about it constantly. All of this is rooted in the destruction of the family culture. And so when you tear apart families, this is what happens. And so is the problem most acute with African-Americans? Yes. Because of the destruction of the black family. The terror. The impact of that has been most harshly felt on black people. But it's happening in all parts of American society. So even where there are two parents, we're still not talking about a traditional family structure. We're still not talking about a true commitment to developing and nurturing young people. You know, we -- we deal with our young people, after we deal with our jobs. After we deal with making as much money as we possibly can. And have secured our second, third car. Our second home. We just don't have -- America does not have the commitment to young people and children that we used to have. And so we shouldn't be surprised that these kids are turning on us. And turning on the culture. And the -- the society we've left them with.
GLENN: Jeez. All right. What's the big topic for you today, on your show?
JASON: Today, we're going to talk about Kyle Murray, and the contract being given out in the NFL. And how, you know, I'm less excited for the NFL, than I've been at any time in my life. But the topic tomorrow, that I'm going to get into, that I would -- your audience would maybe really, really be interested in, is I watched a sermon from a minister called Bishop E.W. Jackson. And I think he gave it two weeks ago. I watched it yesterday.
It is one of the greatest sermons. If not the greatest sermon I've ever watched. And it made me realize what -- what the problem is, with this whole January 6 thing. And why it doesn't sit right with me. And who is really to blame. And, again, these --
GLENN: What's -- what's the just of it?
JASON: Well, the just of it is like, as Christians, as believers, we're sitting on the sidelines, in this cultural war. And -- and we have to get involved. This whole separation of church and state is being misused. And if we don't return to a John the Baptist mentality, impose our will on this culture, you know, let's not sit around and complain about the culture. So for me, this wasn't his argument. For me, his takeaway was. Look what happened on January 6. And I blamed the media. And I blamed the left. And I blamed all the lies that were told. But I also blame us, as Christians. Because we -- we need -- rather than -- and again, this isn't an anti-Trump statement. But it's just a fact. Rather than flying the Trump flag. We need to be flying the Jesus flag. A religious flag. A faith flag. And demanding that our politicians build a culture that is respectful of the Judeo-Christian culture that this country was founded upon. We -- we deserve that. We're owed that. That's the reparations we're owed. Our Founding Fathers built the Judeo-Christian culture, and founding documents, based on that. And we're watching politicians and elitists betray all that. Destroy all that. And we haven't mustered the strength, as believers to -- to take our butts to Washington. Instead of letting the leftist crazies and lunatics define all the protests. And instead of letting political people. And again, I have no problem with the MAGA crowd. But if that had been a group of Christians out there, praying and -- and asking for America to restore some integrity and facts and truth to this society. A group of Christians would have never been baited into entering the Capitol. We never would have let Ray Epps and the other influencers, bait us into the lunacy, that they're now using against us. And so now we've got to put away these political identities, and embrace the true identity of this country. And the only identity that can really save this country, and that's faith in God.
GLENN: I will tell you, that on this faith in God, this is how far away we are. Did you know that we are now sending money overseas, through blinker pen. Through the Bureau of Democracy human rights and labor grant program. And it is promoting atheism and humanism.
JASON: Yeah, I didn't know that. It doesn't surprise me. And, again, if we don't gather up as believers and say, we know what you're doing. And make them talk about, what they're actually doing. We have to draw a line in the sand, Glenn. We just you haven't done it. And enough is enough. The drag queens at schools. Grooming and trying to bait our children into a lifestyle that is unhealthy and doesn't lead to reproduction. We got to stop this. We -- if we can't draw a line in the sand, over what they're doing to our kids, then we're cowards, and we deserve the destruction that's coming to this country.
GLENN: Hmm. Thank you so much. I really, really enjoy talking to you.
JASON: Thank you, Glenn. Love you too.
