CREATE: Glenn reveals ambitious plan to work with musicians, artists, filmmakers and more!

On GBTV tonight, Glenn revealed the final piece of the solution to fix the country - create! He didn't just discuss the immorality and filth in the current culture, but also the reaction for people of values and faith to just run away and withdraw from the culture rather than to create something different. So he came up with a solution - one that involves him working with artists and musicians in aggressively pushing back with messages of hope and goodness. And, most importantly, he encouraged viewers to join him, not as passive observers but as active artists and creators in whatever way they could.

“America has always been about creating and doing,” Glenn said as welcomed people to the final night of special shows focusing on fixing the country.

Taking a break from the news of the day, Glenn chose to instead reflect on the history of American ingenuity to start the show. He ran through some of the incredible American inventions – focusing on everything from Edison and the Kinetoscope to the iPad.

“Edison saw the good in the invention. He was an amazing man -- he never stopped thinking and trying -- no matter how preposterous the idea seemed. For example, he actually tried to make concrete furniture such as beds and chairs. Even concrete pianos. Needless to say that one didn't work out, and neither did his 'mechanical cigar'. But that didn't stop him. He once said, ‘I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.’ He just kept creating, and sometimes he got it right.”

“He's also is the first to record the human voice,” Glenn said.

And since Edison, the world has now gotten to the point where the iPad can access and play music without wires from anywhere there are cell towers. Glenn’s concern, however, was what content and music and art was now out there in the culture that could be consumed on this technology.

“While our technology has progressed, our culture has regressed,” he said.

WATCH him explain the cultural problems below:

Glenn talked about how many of the Billboard Top 100 songs have title like “F**k You” and “S&M”, while shows like Glee feature high school kids dancing in lingerie. Meanwhile, shows that talk about God, faith, and family have been left behind, and the very few that remain are treated like jokes. Glenn even discussed his own professional difficulty discussing faith and the risks he has faced because of it.

“I've actually lost (radio) affiliates because they say I talk about God,” he said.

But how do you push back against the current path of popular culture?

“It's everywhere. You know it and I know it. Teens engaging casual sex. Violence. Profanity. Nudity. We know the problem, it's not hard to miss,” Glenn said.

And what is the typical response of conservatives? They complain about it and threaten to throw the TV out. But they don’t actually try to change it, in fact they have given up in a lot of ways.

“This is the one area where we've abandoned our entrepreneurial spirit. Instead of being like Edison and trying 10,000 ways to be part of the solution we just throw our hands up in the air and wave the white flag,” he said.

“We're against something instead of being for something. And meanwhile, artists are thrust into a toxic atmosphere where if they aren't willing to live on the cutting edge of culture and create filth you don't get a job.”

“Why are we just giving the culture over to those who seek to promote filth? Why are we just complaining about it? How about we do something about it. Yes! That's what we are going to do here. Create.”

“Right now our idea on culture is 'It's bad. I don't like it, it's not good for myself or my children'. And we distance ourselves from it. That doesn't create anything. America moves forward when people are creating,” Glenn said.

Meanwhile politicians, the studios, the networks, the record industries are working with outdated systems that don’t work and are doing everything they can to punish small businesses and punish the creators, but Glenn promised that is about to change.

“This day is the biggest challenge of all four and arguably the most important,” he said.

Glenn said, “Creation is what moves us. It's what informs us. It's what motivates us. In many ways it's who we are. That's why the Marxists of the early 20th century laid out a detailed action plan to change culture. You can change the way people perceive things and the way they act. We know this is true because we've seen it happen in our own lifetime, right before our eyes in real time.”

Does Glenn expect people to go out and buy a studio and start making TV shows and movies? No. But Glenn wants everyone to recognize how they are creators.

Now, Glenn admits that he had a slightly different plan in store for tonight’s show, one that will be revealed soon, and that lawyers and studios and more stopped him from being able to execute it as planned. However, he did want to give viewers an hint at what he was doing to push back on the current status of our culture.

He discussed his plans to find musicians who had a message that celebrates faith and American values rather than some of the filth that is out there currently. He also discussed plans to get involved with films and how he and his team were developing new systems to create media outside of Hollywood and New York.

He explains below:

And he also introduced the first artist, Kalai, who would be performing at Restoring Love:

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:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
