On his show Wednesday, Glenn Beck said the country needs to “atone” for its divisive racial past, not for slavery, for a lousy reconstruction period.
“I know a lot of people disagree with this — they’re still yelling about slavery — I’m sorry, dude, 600,000 people, most of them white, lost their lives,” Beck said. “The country was washed in blood and Abraham Lincoln was willing to lose it all … against slavery.”
Beck said the country atoned for slavery then, but “picked it right back up” in reconstruction.
“We just changed from slavery to something else, … but there was no atonement there,” he said.
Lawrence Jones, a contributor for TheBlaze, agreed with Beck, adding, “At the end of the day, God is right. God is the one who is going to bring us all together.”
Beck just set whites back. White supremacy, white guilt, white privilege are all meant to make people hate whites, traditional whites specifically, and he just added to it.
People have to atone for their sins and for the things they don’t do to help others but not for our divisive past. What about the many who paid the ultimate sacrifice in World War II? What about the many who generously give to others and who sacrifice to make a difference?
America has done so much good and the people who were evil in their treatment of blacks are mostly shut down or they’re dead. No one of right mind wants them to have a voice. There will always be evil people but America is the best and freest country in the world. We were more united before all this anti-white hate and the rise of the statists.
A great deal of money has been poured into black communities. Whites are trying to help but we don’t need to atone for sins of people who are dead or unrelated to any of us.
When tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children were flooding across the border, Glenn Beck went to the border with teddy bears to greet them and to insult conservatives as unkind, painting them all with one brush.
Beck has morphed many times in his career. He’s morphing again into some kind of twisted preacher.
We should read about the reconstruction – he’s right. Read about the Progressive Woodrow Wilson and his re-segregation of Federal employees. Consider how the left has further enslaved poor black people.
Do blacks have any responsibility in this? Do they have the responsibility to take care of their children?
What do you think?
Here is Beck’s “free”, “complimentary” clip with a long ad at the beginning.
