Glenn Beck: 9/12 approaching… be heard

Glenn will broadcast 9-12 coverage LIVE on the Fox News Channel on Saturday, September 12th from 1pm-3pm ET.

GLENN: Yvonne Donnelly is with me now and, Yvonne, you are somebody that is working with the 9/12 project and you’ve been talking to these different 9/12 groups all around the country.

DONNELLY: Yep.

GLENN: And, you know, you are kind of helping share ideas with each other and helping connect people together.

DONNELLY: Yep.

GLENN: What is the mood for 9/12 around the country, not just in Washington?

DONNELLY: The actual day, the actual march? I just think that everybody is fired up. I think that you’ve inspired us to go out, you inspired us on March 13th to educate ourselves, to form groups, to do things, to speak out. And so I just think, Glenn ‑‑ well, first of all, and we all thank you. I get so many e‑mails from people just thanking, for the inspiration. And we’re just going to go out there and we’re going to be heard.

GLENN: Okay.

DONNELLY: We’ve been silent for so long and it’s time to be heard and so we’re going to go march on Washington. But like you were saying, there’s other events all across the country.

GLENN: Okay. So do you have any idea ‑‑ first of all, who is organizing this 9/12 march in Washington?

DONNELLY: That’s ‑‑ there’s a combined effort. They joined forces with Freedom Works, Tea Party Patriots, other conservative groups. You can find out more information on ResistNet.com.

GLENN: Okay.

DONNELLY: And just to be clear, you and I have talked about it.

GLENN: Yeah.

DONNELLY: That we are not the organizers.

GLENN: Yeah. 9/12 does not, at least, you know, the project that I started, doesn’t endorse anybody.

DONNELLY: Nope.

GLENN: It doesn’t endorse any ‑‑ anything.

DONNELLY: Nope.

GLENN: It was a way ‑‑ it was meant to be an inspiration for you to find your own voice. I will tell you that I am very leery of any 9/12er that wants to get in to endorse a particular candidate as a group. I think that’s a mistake because ‑‑

DONNELLY: I agree.

GLENN: That’s the way you get co‑opted by people. But you said this was conservative, but it also, the Ayn Rand group is also involved. Isn’t Ayn Rand, the people from Ayn Rand, aren’t they going to be at least speaking in Washington? Do you know?

DONNELLY: Let me just check and see because I have a list of the speakers’ names in front of me.

GLENN: I thought there was ‑‑ I thought Ayn Rand was involved. Maybe not, maybe not.

DONNELLY: I don’t see him on the list right now.

GLENN: Stu’s saying that there are.

DONNELLY: You made the clarification, Glenn. But what they are saying is several other conservative groups. But you are correct because that’s one of the things that I’m really trying to get across when I do communicate with other 9/12 groups. We are not considered a conservative movement.

GLENN: Right. It is a constitutionalist movement I think ‑‑

DONNELLY: I like that.

GLENN: The people who are involved with constitutionalists. They just would like the restoring of our Constitution. A good rule of thumb. Let’s just read that thing from time to time.

DONNELLY: Yeah, you know, that’s crazy.

GLENN: So Yvonne, do you have any idea how many people are coming or what are the, you know, are there ways to find out what’s going on on this march? How do people get involved?

DONNELLY: Well, we have information on 912project.com that can lead people to information about the march, about travel. And there are links for ResistNet and Freedom Workss as well. And they can go to those sites, too. And as far as numbers, Glenn, like you asked, I mean, it’s really hard to pinpoint. But we’re hearing ‑‑ it’s just so hard.

GLENN: Don’t even say a number.

DONNELLY: Yeah.

GLENN: Because then the media will come out with a number and they will say, they expected 10,000 people and there were four there.

DONNELLY: Right, right. Right, it’s just so hard.

GLENN: Here’s the thing, America. I have no idea if people are going to come to this. I have no idea what’s going on. You know, no idea. I’m not a community organizer. I will say that I said to you on March 13th, if you build it, they will come. Well, here it is. It has been built. Will you come? It’s ‑‑ it starts the week of 9 ‑‑ is it starting early on Wednesday or something?

DONNELLY: The 10th is their actual event on the 10th, 11th and leading up to the 12th of the march.

GLENN: Okay.

DONNELLY: So there’s all kinds of great meetings with representatives, different programs that you can participate in. Some of it is just like classroom type things to talk to us about leading on the grassroots efforts because that’s something to remember, particularly about 9/12.

GLENN: Boy, are you kidding.

DONNELLY: We are grassroots people.

GLENN: So here’s the thing. My part of the job was to cover it. I’m not a leader.

DONNELLY: Correct.

GLENN: I’m going to cover it. And I will make sure that there’s nobody ‑‑ we’re not going to take the cameras and shoot one way or another. We will shoot the truth as it happens. We will show it to the American people, and I’m not going to have a bumbling of people there that are going to give commentary that say, "Look at all of these crazy terrorists out there. Your voice will be heard. Your face will be seen. Your movement will be viewed by the nation on 9/12. What you do in that time period is up to you. Whether you show up, whether you want to be seen, whether you want your voice to be heard or if you choose to stay home and say, "You know what, I’m going to let somebody else do that," it will be seen. And it will be judged by the American press. It will be judged by the politicians on what you do. Find out all the information at the912project.com.
