Exclusive Live & On Demand Coverage of Restoring Love Available Now on GBTV Plus - Click for Details

With all the problems in the world…

And with politicians giving all those speeches…

Doesn’t it feel good to do the work?

Just stop whining……

And roll up your sleeves!

One million meals have just left the stadium.

We’re feeding the hungry in 11 cities.

There are churches…

That can worship again when it rains…

Because we –

YOU – put a roof up.

The elderly…

The lonely…

Those who are afraid…

We said to them.

Be not afraid!

For we are with you.

And we will be your shelter.

Shelter from the storm.

Those who came with your parents.

I want you to get used to ….

Seeing them in action.

And tell your parents this:

“Mom, Dad…

I liked doing this.

I liked YOU doing this.

And I don’t want this…

To be a one-day thing.”

Hold each other to that promise.

Because this is your inheritance.

This whole event is about you.

We did this for you.

It’s about what you watch on TV….

…it’s about your music, movies and school.

It’s about your America …

The America we are building for you.

Right now.

We talked tonight about America’s history…

The pilgrims… George Washington…

…Abraham Lincoln… Martin Luther King….

And these men… they are part of history.

And you may be thinking…

…that’s history! I hate history!

All those guys are DEAD!

But that’s not true.

History is always alive.

History breathes. It doesn't belong behind glass.

It belongs to you.

History is where we learn…

…who we really are.

Everything we have…

Everything we enjoy…

Was done….

By someone else….

Before we were born.

The America we have today …

… is what someone else created for us.

We inherited America…

…this America …

…from our parents and grandparents.

What we have…

They built.

We can’t be blamed for what they did wrong.

And we can’t take credit for what they did right.

We didn’t fight their wars.

We didn’t march with them.

We didn’t build the schools.

That was done for us.

And we will do that for our children.

That’s how an inheritance works.

You can’t control what you get from your parents…

But you can shape what you leave behind.

If you get an inheritance…

You can improve on it.

Or you can spend it…

The story of America …

…is filled with great families.

The Rockefellers. The Carnegies. The Vanderbilts.

Some have grown in prosperity.

Some have spent it all.

In Newport, the mansions sit high on cliffs.

But the families that built them…

Can’t afford to live there anymore.

They inherited something great…

…but they lost it all.

All they have is their famous names.

If this can happen to a great family…

…It can happen to a great country.

We must not become America in name only.

We must always strive to be a great country.

We don’t have to spend our inheritance.

We can build on it.

Invest it. Improve it.

Make it bigger and better.

That’s your choice. It’s our choice.

Our inheritance is America.

And we have to decide…

…Are we going to spend it all?

…Or will we make the dream bigger?

Tonight: I charge each of you with a mission.

No matter your age.

No matter how you got here…

Or how far you traveled.

A mission.

To act.

To commit.

To shape the future.

To do one pure thing:

Make America better than it is today.

Build a bigger inheritance…

Do what we’re supposed to do…

For our children.

Every generation of America faces this challenge.

Every generation.

Some succeed.

And some fail.

Those who have failed

Failed because…

They waited for someone else to act.

They found out much too late that

When you wait for someone to help you…

…That someone will show up….

…And sometimes…

…They may give you a push.

But far too often they will push you around,

There is a difference between getting pushed…

…and getting pushed around.

Two results

Two choices

For two types of people

There ARE two kinds of Americans.

Not Democrats and Republicans.

Not God-fearing and God-doubting.

Bigger than those differences.

Much bigger.

I think there are two kinds of Americans.

Those who like to be pushed.

And those who push themselves.

Those who see our problems and refuse to see our blessings.

And those who see our problems as our blessings…

Tonight: I ask you:

Which are you?

Where do you stand?

With those who like to be pushed?

Or those who push themselves?

Each of us likes to think…

We won’t get pushed around.

But history tells us that’s not the truth.

We know that sometimes…

It’s easy to do nothing.

Not long ago, America was divided by race –

One white, with rights…

And one black, without rights.

Some said: “This is the way it has to be…

“We just have to live with it…”

That’s what a lot of people believed…

…thought… and said.

Whites believed. And some blacks did, too.

There was….

… another way of looking at things.

A small number of men and women…

…They saw injustice.

And they knew it wouldn’t last.

They said: “America is a great nation,

“and it is capable of justice.

“America has the tools to be great…

“And one day, America will be great…

“We will tear down Jim Crow.

They didn’t say we might overcome.

They said: “We shall overcome.”

Martin Luther King said it was his DREAM.

But it was not his dream.

It was the American destiny.

He did not wait for the arc of history to bend towards justice…

He and millions like him pushed…

They pushed and they pushed uphill.

They pushed and they were pushed back by water cannons.

They pushed and they were pushed back by billy clubs and tear gas.

They pushed and they were pushed back on the bridge at Selma.

They pushed and they were pushed off the bus in Montgomery.

They pushed and they were pushed into jail.

They pushed and some gave their lives…

But they never stopped pushing.

And in the end…

They bent history towards justice.

That was their inheritance to us.

WASHINGTON, LINCOLN and KING

They are the American story.

Each gave their whole life to America.

And what they built…

Has lasted for 236 years.

They did not see a completed America in their days.

And it’s never finished.

They saw a void…

…and filled it.

AND SO SHALL WE.

Now…

Where’s that card?

Worth $2.8 million!

You’re not holding an asset.

You’re holding a man’s life!

You’re holding a man’s legacy!

The man on that card.

Is Honus Wagner.

He was a great player.

But his card’s value…

Comes from a different greatness.

We remember him not just because…

He was a great hitter.

We remember him

…because he stood for something.

It couldn’t have been easy.

Back in his day…

Everyone smoked or chewed tobacco.

But he wouldn’t smoke.

And they put…

…an ad for cigarettes…

…on his card.

Right next to his name.

His name!

Honus Wagner was a Christian man.

He didn’t smoke. He didn’t chew.

So he was faced with a choice.

He stood up.

He didn’t want his name…

Next to something he opposed.

He refused to bend.

He refused to comply.

And so while there were others…

Other players…

Other great baseball players…

Honus Wagner’s card is the one…

Everyone wants.

Honus Wagner is the name we remember…

Honus Wagner is the card with the most value.

This card is telling us something.

Something that Honus didn't know at the time.

This card is screaming

Pleading to be heard

"Do the right thing!

It is the only way….

…. to create lasting worth and great value."

You see…

History isn't about a bunch of dead guys…

Staring at us sternly…

From the textbooks.

And the paintings.

History’s great figures

Are talking to us still…

If we just listen.

History isn't in museums.

It's here.

We are creating it right now.

Everyday.

With every single choice.

Will we do the easy thing or

Will we stand….

…and create something of lasting value?

It is an easy choice

But it is not an easy commitment.

Commitment is where it starts.

The Puritans had it easy.

All they had to do was make it through the winter.

George Washington?

All he had to do was beat the British.

Abraham Lincoln?

All he had to do was keep the Union.

Martin Luther King?

All he had to do was get Americans to listen to the words of the Declaration of Independence…

…That all men are created equal.

…And endowed by their Creator…

…With freedom.

What’s our challenge?

We don’t have to build a nation.

We don’t have to conquer racism.

We don’t have emptiness in our stomachs.

No.

What we have is a void…

…A void in our hearts.

An emptiness in our culture.

We have forgotten…

What we’re building.

And so others step in and tell us what to build.

Where to build it.

How to build it.

When to build it.

America --

We have lost our way.

You have heard me talk about this.

If you want to raise money …

… with a bake sale,

The government will stop you.

“Junk food!”

“Transfats!” They’ll say.

No bake sales!

If you want to give food to soup kitchens…

Don’t try to give them doughnuts… or salty snacks.

You’ll be turned away. “Unhealthy”… “Not nutritious.”

And they’ll say: “Don’t worry, we got this one.”

“We’ll take care of these people. So you don’t have to.”

But because of you,

The first of many trucks are headed out…

Right now…

To our cities…

Our American cities…

To send a clear message…

This is who we are.

This is what we were taught.

When we see someone hungry…

…we will give them food.

When we see somebody hurting…

…we will give them help.

We are Americans.

We are builders.

We are helpers.

And if there’s one thing …

…our government must NOT do…

…it’s this:

Don’t stop us.

Don’t stop us from helping.

Don’t stop us from feeding.

We. Will. Serve.

We are not a selfish people.

We are selfless.

You are the living proof of this.

You are living proof that Americans are good.

Americans are still people of action.

Americans want freedom.

Americans want justice.

We want love.

And here’s the thing:

There are millions of you.

Millions just like you.

Millions ready to act.

Ready to take up the struggle.

Ready….

To commit

To activate,

To live it …

To create….

… to restore love to America.

We will not let go.

We will not give up.

We’re not going to put our cars in neutral.

We’re not going to coast down the hill.

We’re going to do it the hard way.

We’re going to put our shoulders down.

We’re going to get behind the car.

And we’re going to push America up the hill.

Know this:

We’re never going to get to the top

But neither did they,

They did not give up.

And neither will we.

Because we are Americans.

And we will, in the end…

Have more than our great name.

We will have a great country again.

And a great legacy for our children!

We will not give up.

We will not give up our inheritance.

We will not give up the right to feed the hungry…

…the right to care for the sick…

…the right to run a bake sale!

We will not give someone else…

…the work of our hearts…

…the work that we must do.

We will do it…

…because we ARE already doing it.

I will not let go.

I will not sit down.

I will not comply.

I will not comply.

Because I know…

I know this:

America is not done.

And if you are watching this broadcast…

In a distant foreign land…

And looking for American weakness.

Looking for surrender.

Look at this crowd!

And know that we are putting you on notice.

Witness the Third Great Awakening!

Your time has passed,

And our time has just begun!

Let this be the beginning

Commit and declare it for all to hear.

For those who count us out

Are counting on

ONE weekend of action…

…ONE weekend of speeches…

ONE weekend. ONE day.

Let this be the first of many…

It’s not over.

We have not yet begun to restore ourselves

And reclaim our country

The Puritans didn’t leave Plymouth after a day.

George Washington didn’t pack up ….

… at Valley Forge after one cold night.

He got down on one knee…

He called on the blessings of heaven.

He had firm reliance on the protection…

Of divine Providence.

God is with us.

God is our sovereign.

And with Him…

Our battle is already won.

Washington, Lincoln. King.

Even in death, they live...

And speak to us.

And so let us live fully…

Not just mark the days.

But LIVE!

As Washington said,

"deeds not words"

And for Lincoln,

The mission of the living…

Was written by those who came before.

“The world will little note,

nor long remember…

What we said here.

But rather what we dedicate…

To do here.”

History is a guide …

…not a guarantee.

It is for us the living ….

…to be dedicated …

to the unfinished work…

which they …

…who came before us

….have thus far so nobly advanced

It is for us …

To be dedicated …

To the great task before us—

that from these honored dead

we take increased devotion

To that cause

For which they gave…

The last full measure of devotion—

that we here highly resolve

that these dead

Shall not have died in vain—

that this nation, under God,

shall have a new birth of freedom—

and that government of the people,

by the people,

for the people,

shall not perish from the earth.”

That is our charge,

That is our duty,

That is our blessing,

With malice toward none

And charity toward all

Let us tonight restore Love…

…for love

will hold us together.

Love...

…will make us a shelter from the storm.

I will be my brother’s keeper.

The world will know once again…

That they are not alone.

The Americans again have arrived.

With honor

Courage

And love.

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:
