The following is a transcript from the Pro America Report.
Welcome, welcome, welcome. Ed Martin here on the Pro America Report. In a few moments, we are going to talk with Annette Glenn, who is running for state senate in Michigan. Michigan has become one of the hottest states. The governor’s race is close. There’s U. S. House races that are close and at the state level, state legislature level, very, very close. This is a big race. Annette Glenn is a state rep. She’s been on the program before. She’s a very dynamic leader. So we’ll talk with her, and we’ll find out what the story is because she’s in a dog fight, and she’s really a great leader and one we’re supporting.
We’ll also talk with Kenny Xu. Kenny Xu, Kenny Xu. Let me say it right, Kenny Xu, who is the founder and head of an organization that strives to have colorblind advocacy, none of this stuff that’s targeting different groups. He himself is Asian American, and he has honed in on how poorly Asian Americans are treated in this country under affirmative action. So, very interesting guy. We’ve had him on the show before. The reason it’s so important is, early Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court took up a case about this topic. It’s Harvard. Harvard College is on the hot seat, and so they argued it earlier. I walked over to the court to see it. There were some protesters on both sides. The case is Students for Fair Admission v. Harvard. And so that’s arguing. And that will be interesting to hear, see what happens. That arguments now, the decision won’t be for months, in the spring probably, but we’ll talk with Kenny Xu about that and a little bit more about what is happening with that topic. It’s a very important one.
All right, now, I want to cover this, what you need to know today, and it’s an important one to me personally, because many years ago now, ten, I guess it’s close to ten right about now, ten years ago, I was in Missouri. I was the Republican nominee for attorney general, and I was in a race against the Democrat incumbent. A few months later, I was elected chairman of the party because I lost my race for attorney general. But there we were, and we were slogging away. And it’s really tough to be in a statewide race. You got a lot of work to do and et cetera. Well, one of the things that happened was I had some great surrogates come into town into Missouri to campaign for me, and one of them was Rand Paul. And Rand Paul, who I had met before, who had been very nice to me, had been to some different things that I was at. He came in and we hopscotched across the state, Springfield, Missouri, up to Columbia. I think it was finished in Cape Girardeau and had these campaign events, and it was wonderful. And I got to spend the whole day with the guy, and that opened up what I would call a friendship. And over the years, I’ve got to know him.
Early on, I was involved with his presidential campaign. I like him a lot, and I thought maybe he was a guy that could take on the establishment. Turns out that it was the same year Trump ran, and it didn’t go very far. But he’s a super guy. I mean, he’s really wonderful.
His wife Kelley is very impressive, normal, like a nice lady, like a friend with her husband. Just normal, right? They’re pretty normal people. They’re kind of smarter than most people, but they’re pretty normal, right? Wonderful. Nice family.
And when he was attacked, brutally attacked, the coverage of it was like a neighborly dispute, and that was not true. It was his neighbor who was a far, you know, who had been indoctrinated by watching cable TV, who had become kind of radicalized. That’s the right word.
And he sprinted down a hill next door, and Rand cuts his lawn with headphones on, noise canceling headphones especially. He doesn’t want to lose his hearing. I don’t know if he had music on or not, but this guy tackles him.
Now, Rand Paul is not a tall guy, and he’s not a thin guy. He’s pretty athletic, but he’s not tiny. He’s not like he’s got some muscle on him. This guy blindsided him and almost killed him. That’s the facts.
He lost a part of his lung. His lung collapsed. He was hospitalized. And frankly, here’s what I’ll tell you. For about a year or two afterwards when you saw Rand Paul, he didn’t really look like himself. He had really been physically brutalized.
That was this guy, the neighbor, who I think is a felon, he pled guilty to whatever he did, and there was a lawsuit against him, a civil lawsuit. But the idea that it was anything other than, same thing with Steve Scalise. He was shot by a guy that was radicalized by MSNBC and CNN and others.
Now, I don’t blame those sites, but I think we can blame the rhetoric, and I don’t see rhetoric on our side of the aisle, meaning conservatives, that comes anywhere near what we’re talking about. I mean, I just don’t see it. I watch what’s happening. I don’t see people on the right or conservative side calling for violence. Even January 6, most people I know say the people that got out of control, and especially that pushed a cop or hit a cop or hit anyone, those people deserve to be penalized. They deserve to be tried. They deserve to be but the rest of it is just a roll up of people that are not guilty of anything other than trespass or vandalism or something.
But this is crazy. And there was an exchange on Twitter where somebody, Ana Navarro, I think, was saying how this is all MAGA that does this, or Maga is the one that influences this and blah, blah.
And Kelly Paul, Rand Paul’s wife, responded on Twitter and said, this is not honest. And I have to say, her tweet, I know them. Her tweet sounded like her. It sounded like a woman that was worried about her husband. It sounded like somebody that cared about her family. It’s a crazy and remember what I’ve told you.
What you need to know is the projection racket of this is profound. And whether you think they’re just talking to a third of the country to make them believe this, or you think they’re trying to persuade the rest of the country, whatever it is, it is truly evil to try to blame Paul Pelosi s attack on MAGA supporters and to say it’s the rhetoric, it’s precisely the opposite.
Five days ago, Hillary Clinton called people that were supporting conservative politicians and candidates and MAGA policy. She called them extremists. She said extremists. And they have a plan. That’s language intended to heighten the tension. A few months ago, President Biden stood before in Philadelphia, before Independence Hall, with black and red coloring and military standing there and called Americans a clear and present danger, not for something they did, but for positions they held and what they might have said.
This is radical stuff. This is twisted stuff. The regime, the Biden regime, and aided by Hillary, and especially aided by the media, especially aided by big tech. There’s more and more coming out, by the way, about the media, the narrative machine, your big government’s role in influencing Facebook and Meta and Twitter and others. It’s more and more clear that that’s happened.
And I’m just telling you, what you need to know is this is really evil, evil stuff. And families like Rand Paul’s family and Kelly Paul, his wife and other families, Ssteve Scalise and lots of people. That kid down in, Marco Rubio volunteer, got beaten senseless. Anybody? Nick Sandman, Kyle Rittenhouse. And look, if somebody gets brutalized by someone on the right, fine. Let’s talk about it. You don’t have prolifers out wilding, causing problems, beating people. Doesn’t happen.
Even the guy that was arrested for pushing was someone arrested for pushing a prolifer because somebody was getting in the face of his kid. But even that’s okay. I mean, that’s fine. This is crazy stuff.
And that big tech, big media, and big government. Joe Biden, Facebook, Meta, the cable stations, Ana Navarro Smith, a big star in the View and CNN. That they’re going for this is twisted. It’s twisted. It’s diabolical. And what you need to know is it has to stop. We have to stop it, meaning we have to have legislatures, And you know Eric Schmitt, the guy running for U.S. Senate from Missouri, the attorney general, his lawsuit has gotten to the bottom of a bunch of this stuff, or is getting to the bottom. We’re seeing it. And Elon Musk now has the tweets and the back and forth emails between the people that were doing this in Twitter. We’ve got to get to the bottom of it. To keep, to hold our society together. To trust each other in some way, if not always.
What you need to know is Kelly Paul is worth hearing whether Ana Navarro and the left cares to listen. But we have to hear her.
Alright, we gotta take a break. We’ll be right back. We got great guests. Ed Martin here in the Pro America Report. Back in a moment.
