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.”

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"

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
