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"

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
