"The coolest moment of my life"

This morning, Glenn recounted some of his favorite moments from Restoring Love. More than anything, he was excited to see a change in the course of America. While bad things may still be on the horizon, Glenn believes there truly is "good news" coming out this weekend's events.

At the event, Glenn declared the beginning of the Third Great Awakening, calling that moment of the coolest in his life. He said:

Ready to act. Ready to stand. Ready to take up a struggle, to commit, to activate, to live it, to create, to restore love. In our hearts and in America. We will not let go. We will not give up. We are not going to put our cars in neutral. We're not going to do the easy thing. We're not going to coast downhill. We're going to do it the American way. We're going to do it the right way. We're going to do it the hard way. We're going to put our shoulders down and we're going to get behind America and we're going to push. And we're going to push this car up the hill. And know this. Know this, just like this man and this man and that man: Most of us will never see the top of the hill. But that's the way it's always been! They never saw it, either. The difference is they never, ever gave up. And neither will we. Because we are Americans! In the end... in the end, my friend, in the end we will have more than our great name. We will have a great country to pass to our children. A legacy for our children. We won't give up. We will not give up our inheritance. We will not give up the right to feed the hungry! To care for the sick! The right to run a bake sale. We will not give up our right, our responsibility, the work of our hearts, the work we must do, the work we will do because we're already doing it! I will not let go! I will not let go! I will not sit down! I will not comply, because I know, and you know, America is not done! We're just getting started. And let me say this, to anybody who happens to be watching this in some far‑off corner of the world or right around the corner here in America, if you are looking for American weakness, if you're looking for a group of people to sit down and surrender, I invite you to look at this crowd in this stadium!

"That was one of the coolest moments of my life.  And if anybody was there, I'll bet you you say the same thing because it is true.  It's true.  As a guy who has been bringing you the bad news for I don't know how long now, let me bring you the good news:  That is true.  And if you don't know what the Third Great Awakening means, look it up.  Look it up.  People have been praying for it since before Martin Luther King was born.  People have been praying for it, and it's here.  It's here.  It's why we have, I really believe we ‑‑ don't you feel it?  Don't you feel that there's been a turning point in the country?"

"Now, that doesn't mean that God is going to fix everything for us.  We've got real trouble coming our way.  We do.  We have trouble coming our way, but nothing we can't conquer.  Nothing we can't get through.  Americans are awake.  Now, not everybody.  It's each of our jobs to continue to wake people up.  But here's the good news:  We get to wake them up with good news now.  We don't have to wake them up to the impending doom.  We wake them up with the good news.  Spread the news, that Americans are good and so we will be great.  We're exceptional.  If President Obama doesn't understand how exceptional America is, show me the people that without any tragedy gathered by these numbers, served 34,000 people, served, in one weekend, served.  Show me that in the history books.  Never.  Never been done before.  Find it.  Any historian, find it.  It doesn't exist.  And if the media has their way, this won't exist, either.  If the progressive historians have their way, this won't exist, either.  You spread the word."

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
