Jason Whitlock SLAMS NFL diversity quota: ‘I don’t need CRUTCHES’

The NFL now is running itself like a college campus, BlazeTV’s Jason Whitlock tells Glenn. The football organization recently announced a new diversity quota, which demands every NFL team employ a minority or female assistant offensive coach. But it’s just a ‘publicity stunt,’ Whitlock explains, since nearly every professional AND college coaching staff already has black coaches and staff members on the sidelines anyway. So, not only will this destroy meritocracy in sports, but Whitlock also says a quota like this one is INSULTING to all the black Americans who’ve gotten by just fine without similar assistance: ‘I don’t need CRUTCHES!’

GLENN: If you listen to this program, you might know that I'm an expert at nothing. But kind of have enough general knowledge to get me into trouble on everything with the exception of sports. That is a no-knowledge zone. But even I once in a while, a story will break through. And I will see, wait a minute. Hang on. You have to have a minority offensive coach? You have to hire one now? That -- they have to be -- including women? I'm -- I'm wondering -- I'm wondering how long before football has to hire people like me. You need a really uncoordinated dork, that can barely run. Cannot throw. And trips over his own feet about every 3 yards. You need at least one of those people on your team. Jason Whitlock is here. He's the host of Blaze TV's Fearless. Hello, Jason.

JASON: How are you, Glenn?

GLENN: Good. How far away are me from being on a team?

JASON: We have a little ways to go. You don't fit the profile.

GLENN: Oh, shoot.

JASON: This rule is crazy, man. Because I would -- I'm pretty confident there is already a black assistant coach on the offensive side, of a football team, on every staff in the NFL. And on pretty much every division one football staff in college football. I -- this rule is a bit of a publicity stunt. But it's also really intended to empower women and give -- make the NFL have to start interviewing women for jobs.

GLENN: Do you think that the -- the Redskins -- we refuse to call them any other name. The Redskins, that seem to have kind of a -- a rebellious bend to them. Do you think they could just hire hookers or strippers?

JASON: It's -- it's comical that you mentioned that. Because I was like, well, some -- the old -- the younger me, years ago, if I was an NFL head coach, I literally said to someone, I would say. I would just go to whatever the best strip club is in my town, and hire some woman there to be an offensive assistant.

GLENN: Right.

JASON: Executive in charge of, you know, the head coach's needs or whatever.

GLENN: Okay. That's a problem.
(laughter)
So wait a minute. So this doesn't make a difference. So I've even misunderstood this story. I couldn't even get this one right.

JASON: No. You haven't misunderstood it, in terms of, look, the NFL is just going further and further woke. And they're trying to make -- they want to run the NFL the way college campuses are run. And so basically, they're going to say --

GLENN: Hold on, just a second. I just want to get my arms around that one. Hang on just a second. Because I don't think that's been said by any business ever. We want to run our business, more like a college campus. Okay.

JASON: No question. And college campuses generally speaking, have just as many, if not more, administrators as they do professors.

GLENN: Oh, that's good.

JASON: And so what they're talking about is hiring administrators, people that can't coach football. And I'm not saying that to be sexist. But coaching football is not really most women's skill set. They haven't played the game. And so -- but they're going to set up all these administrator jobs for women, and say, look how inclusive and diverse we are. And look at all the progress we're making. We have female coaches. And -- and then they're also going to -- you know -- LGBT. Coaches of color. That perhaps are not getting their jobs, based on merit. Will have some type of special title and role on the team. It's just mugging up the system, with a lot of mid-level management people that have no real skill.

STU: Jason, it was my impression, that we were striving for a time which we would not make decisions based on skin color. We seem to be reversing that trend for whatever reason. But in the NFL, they're even going to the point where they're changing the competitive balance of league. Where certain executives of color, get hired away. And they're giving draft picks as compensation. Free draft picks to teams. I mean, this is -- you're disturbing the core product here.

GLENN: Yeah. It's not a meritocracy not to my knowledge. And just look at the example. The Miami Dolphins, hired Mike McDaniel as their head coach. His dad is black. But if you listen to what Mike McDaniel said about himself. He certainly is proud of his black father. Not ashamed of his black heritage. But Mike McDaniel looks white, and has basically lived his life as a white person, the same as Barack Obama who is half white. But looks black, has lived his life as a black person. Mike McDaniel has that right. There's no shame about him being half black. There's no shame about his father. But the San Francisco 49ers the bottom draft picks, because he was on their staff, and now the Dolphins have hired him. But, you know, Mike McDaniel's experience as a black person isn't what the majority of black people's experience has been. He -- he looks and appears to be completely white. And so, it's a foolish, foolish game, that only could be come up with on a college campus. Where they live in theory. They don't live in reality. And so these theories, that they have applied on campuses, are now being forced on corporate America. And the NFL has swallowed it whole. Because, again, the people making the decisions and pushing this agenda, are just creating additional jobs for themselves within the NFL. The NFL will have a diversity and inclusion and equity chief. And someone to oversee all of this managing of racial quotas that they're going to -- and those will be black people or women. Or LGBTQ. And it's no different than -- all of this stuff has happened within corporate America. If you go look at the profile of most people running human resources department, they're minorities. And/or LGBTQ. And -- and they're gatekeepers for who gets jobs in corporate America.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

JASON: And -- and the NFL is going to start setting up its gatekeepers, to decide who gets jobs in the NFL. And it will be someone LGBTQ or minority.

GLENN: Now, I don't know much about sports. But if I'm not mistaken, I've only seen somebody hire somebody completely incompetent in sports and have it worked out. And that is, Ted Lasso. I think that's the only time that that has happened.

JASON: I'm going to give you another example right there at home, Glenn. And Barry Switzer was a heck of a college coach. He had no business coaching the Dallas Cowboys. He won a Super Bowl with Jimmy Johnson's Dallas Cowboys. When Jerry Jones ran him out. So you can't get away with it for a short time. If there's enough talent surrounding him.

GLENN: So are we the only you country doing this to our sports teams?

JASON: I can't answer that question. I can't answer it. And to some degree, I don't care. Because all I care about is America.

GLENN: Well, I know. But, you know, if -- you know, we've always led the world. Because we were a meritocracy.

JASON: Yeah.

GLENN: And I just would like to see, if we have spread this disease everywhere. I mean, because -- the western culture is so affected by America. And if we're spreading this disease, I mean, I feel -- and I've never said this before. I feel sorry for soccer fans. And I would like to apologize to them.

JASON: Yeah. I would tend to think, we're spreading the disease. Because the disease is really coming -- it's coming from a lab in -- at Harvard. And Yale. And Stanford. And, you know, it's -- we -- we had a lab leak. And it's spreading all over the country, this --
(laughter)

JASON: This diversity, inclusion, and equity. You know, I love to call it DIE. D-I-E. They call it DEI, intentionally. But they're -- they're just out trying to kill the American spirit, the American way of life, all under the pretense, of, you know, empowering, you know, these oppressed minorities. And -- and it's offensive to me, as a black man. And as someone who grew up -- I went to college on a football scholarship. I wouldn't be college educated around football. There's been no challenge, placed in front of black men, that we haven't been able to overcome, and scale those heights. If -- if just the playing field were level. They're not trying to level the playing field anymore. They're trying to tilt the playing field. And it's offensive to me. I don't need crutches. I really don't.

My dad and mom were my crutches. And they pushed me forward. And all of -- and all of -- virtually, all of my friends, that I went to college with, black guys. Their parents were their crutches. And I'm looking at these guys, and where they're at, in their mid-50s. And the American system worked for them. It did not oppress them. It worked for them.

Has everything been perfect? No. But my friends owned businesses, had high level jobs. Have successful marriages. Raising great kids. And, again, most of us did not come from much. You know, my dad didn't graduate high school. My mother was a factory worker. That's kind of the profile of most of my friend's parents. And we've all done really well. And -- and these guys that all have kids and family. They're pushing their generation of kids, further along than they were.

GLENN: I have to tell you, I just -- you made me think of something, that I haven't even thought of. When you said DIE for diversity inclusion and equity, instead of DEI. And you said, they spell it that way for obvious reasons. And I thought, yeah. The "die" thing.

But the way you said it, it made me think, wait a minute. That's DEI. That's Latin. That's Latin for God. That is where, if you look it up, it's, you know, DEI. Or D-E-U-S. But deus is God. And I'm not saying that's a coincidence -- I'm not saying that they did that for that reason, but I just think there are little signs everywhere, that show that these people think they're God. They just think they are God, and they are worshiping Baal, the God of the Old Testament, and it's not the right God to be following.

JASON: I will say this. If they don't think they're God, they think they're smarter than God. And that's just as problematic.

GLENN: True. Jason Whitlock, thank you so much. God bless.

JASON: Thank you. Thank you, Glenn.

GLENN: Yep. If you have not watched Jason, you need to watch his program. You'll find it here on Blaze TV.

How the WHO's 'pandemic treaty' could CONTROL governments

On May 22nd, the World Health Assembly — which is the governing body of The World Health Organization — will meet in Switzerland to discuss next steps for its ‘pandemic treaty [and its] quest to use public health to expand The WHO’s power over sovereign states,’ Daniel Horowitz reports for TheBlaze. He explains how certain amendments to be added to this treaty could ‘allow the director-general of the WHO to declare a public health emergency in a country and unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions.’ The far-left and global elite continue to destroy our sovereignty, Glenn says, and this is just one more step toward their desired global government.

GLENN: I read some stuff this morning. I've been doing some research on what's happening with the WHO. And I read their stuff today, that will make your head explode. And is really evil and important.

But let me give you this today, from -- from Daniel Horowitz at TheBlaze. States must preemptively nullify any WHO international pandemic regulation.

I'm going to read it verbatim because it's just so well-written. And now is the time, that things are shifting. We're going to. There's going to be a New World Order out there. And we've got to lead it. And we have to unite the rest of the free world in doing it. That's Joe Biden. March 21st, 2022.

Any Republican that is running without mentioning your intent to fight the global pandemic treaty or regulations, might as well run as a Democrat. This is really super important, and it is beginning to happen next week. On May 22nd, the world health assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization, is going to meet in Geneva Switzerland to discuss the next step in its pandemic treaty. And the quest to use public health to expand the WHO's power over sovereign states. Representatives from 193 nations, including the US, will be attending the only country, not invited is Taiwan.

Gee, I wonder why. So what is this treaty? On January 24th, 2022, the director general of the WHO explained the treaty was a priority, to urgently strength the WHO, as leading and the director authority on global health, at the center of the global health architecture. He laid out the guiding principle of this plot. We, quote, all want a world in which science triumphs over misinformation. Solidarity triumphs over division. And equity is a reality, not an aspiration. He said, we are one world, we have one health. We are one WHO.

Now, this has not been announced. Biden has not even spoken about it. They are deathly quiet about this. But they're going to be approving amendments. The proposed amendments are essentially going to allow the director general of the WHO to declare public health emergencies in any country. And unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions. Here's one of the amendments, a critical section from article nine. The WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party, whose territory the event is allegedly occurring. But this is the way it's going to read. Now, WHO may take into account, reports from sources of other than notifications or consultations -- consultations shall assess these reports, according to established principles. And then communicate information on the event, to the state party, in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring.

Now, they have scratched out, before taking any action based on reports, the WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party. That's all gone. They're taking that out.

So WHO gets information, has reports, and they can act without verifying with the president or anybody else.

Why would you be erasing the requirement, for the WHO to consult with the government?

Number four. If the state party does not accept the offer of collaboration within 48 hours, WHO, it used to say, May. It now says, WHO shall -- when justified by the magnitude of public health risk, immediately share with other state parties, the information available, whilst encouraging the state party to accept the offer of collaboration, by the WHO. It used to say there, while taking into accounts the views of the state party concerned.

So they're erasing all of our sovereignty. This is going to be another thing. They're going to say, is a conspiracy theory. It is not. You can look it all up. It is the world health agenda. From the World Health Organization. They are meeting in Geneva, on May 22nd. So that's next week. They are intentionally quiet on this.

Because they know the power. Now, we also know what the WHO is. You remember, when everybody was saying, we have to get out of the WHO.

They're just a tool of China. Why would you say that?

Forget that I mentioned that Taiwan is the only country that is not invited to this in Geneva.

PAT: Yeah. That's completely -- completely irrelevant.

GLENN: Completely. Amen, brother.

PAT: I don't even know why you brought it up in the first place.

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you.

PAT: It's a good thing they weren't actually -- I wish we weren't invited to it.

GLENN: Well, I will tell you this. Another reason why Donald Trump. They fought so hard to keep him out: Because he wouldn't have --

PAT: He sure wouldn't have. That's exactly right.

GLENN: He wouldn't have empowered the WHO.

PAT: Well, he took us out of the WHO.

GLENN: That's exactly right. And this president is not only putting us back, they're taking away our sovereignty.

And so it's one more piece to the global governance of the left. Warning.

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …

Where are our STANDARDS, America?

Since when are we the people that throw our hands up and accept the new normal?

We're the people, that despite all odds, we took it on. We didn't settle for less. And that's what they're telling you to do now, settle for less.

No. That's not who we are. Why would we be willing to sit around and wait for the government to fix it?

Don't lower your standards. That's un-American. We don't lower our standards. We raise standards. And that is our legacy.
