From TV: "We Are One" Movement

On tonight's TV show, Glenn will mention the "We Are One" movement. While Glenn will lay out a lot of the facts on TV, you can see for yourself the language and ideas being put forth by leaders of the movement

We Are One Movement (April 4)

Website

On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, where he had gone to stand with sanitation workers demanding their dream: The right to bargain collectively for a voice at work and a better life. The workers were trying to form a union with AFSCME.

Beginning with worship services over the April 1 weekend, and continuing through the week of April 4, unions, people of faith, civil and human rights activists, students and other progressive allies will host a range of community- and workplace-focused actions.

Join us in solidarity with working people in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and dozens of other states where well-funded, right-wing corporate politicians are trying to take away the rights Dr. King gave his life for: the freedom to bargain, to vote, to afford a college education and justice for all workers, immigrant and native-born. It’s a day to show movement. Teach-ins. Vigils. Faith events. A day to be creative, but clear: We are one.

What are the leaders saying?

Stephen Lerner, SEIU

“Join thousands of Americans on April 4 in cities across the country for a dramatic series of actions to stand up for the middle class.”

Richard Trumka in Support of We Are One Teach-Ins:

America’s working people, well we’re tough. We’ve been through three decades of stagnant incomes and declining living standards. And we’re willing to sacrifice to do our part. But then something else happened in Wisconsin, and Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, in dozens of states. The politicians weren’t just taking our money and our benefits. They weren’t just going after the food on our table and the roofs over our heads. They were coming after our rights.

We have the opportunity to rekindle and share with a new generation that fundamental American belief that we the people can transform our nation, our economy, our political leadership and our world. Now it’s up to us. All of us to turn this moment into a movement. And this movement into a force that can’t be turned back.

Leo Gerard (President of United Steelworkers / Member of AFL-CIO)

It’s time workers stood up to the freeloaders. Join Monday’s We Are One rallies. These demonstrations across the country by religious groups, social justice organizations and labor unions will illustrate that the middle class is mad as hell and not going to take trickster economics anymore.”

Finally, below are "A Prayer for Workers on the Occasion of the We Are One Mobilization" and "A Song of Solidarity (Red, White & Blue)" By Geoff Gilson

A Prayer for Workers on the Occasion of the We Are One Mobilization

Almighty God,

We are gathered here today in fellowship and in hope

As women and men committed to justice and freedom,

And as people who honor the dignity and rights of all working people.

We recall today the life and the hope of Martin Luther King, Jr.

And we remember today his vision of a just society, a beloved community.

We have been to the mountaintop,

And we have seen the Promised Land

Even as Dr. King courageously stood with sanitation workers in 1968,

So we stand today with teachers, firefighters, police officers,

And all workers whose rights are today imperiled across this nation

We know, God, that your Spirit is among us

And that Dr. King’s vision abides in our hearts.

We have been to the mountaintop,

And we have seen the Promised Land

We see in one another and in our working brothers and sisters

Your divine signature, God, and we lift it up this day.

We offer this common prayer in one voice to you,

In one mighty chorus across the nation.

We have been to the mountaintop,

And we have seen the Promised Land

God of Compassion and Mercy,

We ask that you remain with us and strengthen us

As we endeavor to ensure that freedom prevails for working people,

And that your divine signature is never obscured by injustice.

We have been to the mountaintop,

And we have seen the Promised Land

We ask that you guide us today and in the days to come

That we may all one day arrive in the Promised Land

As a beloved community, a great fellowship of men and women

Committed to the dignity and welfare and freedom of all people.

We have been to the mountaintop,

And we have seen the Promised Land

We ask for these things

In the sure knowledge that justice

Will triumph.

Amen.

A Song of Solidarity (Red, White & Blue) By Geoff Gilson

"From the factories to the farmyards

Where we work and till the soil

We keep our country running

With our backbone and our toil

From the mountains of Montana

To the Gulf shore, with its oil

We sweat and grind and break our backs

And risk health beyond call

We're not corporations

Making wealth for the few

We are the whole nation

The Red, White and Blue

We're not about money

We want justice too

It's not just the rich

It's you and me too

We're the Red, White and Blue

It's not a sin to offer

A helping hand to those

Who can not make both ends meet

Through sweat and tears alone

There is no faith nor charity

In claiming liberty

And being mean and selfish

To deny equality

We're not corporations ...

There are those who doubt us

They say it can't be done

What we say, we've said before

And that is, 'Yes We Can!'

We will stand together

With hope and dignity

It's not just the rich

It's you and me too

We're the Red, White and Blue

From the streets of Cairo, Egypt

To the shanties in Darfur

They look to us for democracy

Not arms to make more war

It's not about our dollar bill

But strength and guts and will

The world loves Martin Luther King

And the freedom songs we sing

We're not corporations ...

We're not a split nation

Giving rights to the few

We are One America

The Red, White and Blue

We know without thinking

What we need to do

It's right and it's true

It's you and me too

We're the Red, White and Blue"

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
