Glenn recaps emotional service for Chris Kyle

Glenn attended the memorial service for American Sniper Chris Kyle at Cowboys Stadium yesterday afternoon and described the event on radio today. Glenn choked up as he read the touching notes written by Kyle’s children, which were on the back of the program. It’s tough for anyone to take, but it’s toughest on the family.

"I was in a sea of uniforms yesterday because I was at Chris Kyle's funeral, which was unbelievable and powerful. I don't know who I was more impressed with: His wife, who was a rock for her children; the Navy SEALs and all of the other military that would ‑‑ the honor that was in that room was staggering," Glenn said.

"It was truly, truly remarkable," Glenn said.

Glenn has been working with Mercury One to raise money for Chris Kyle's family, and has already raised over $600,000 to go to a memorial fund and to the FITCO Care Foundation. More details can be found here.

"I was trying to think last night, what do I take away from all of this as we close this chapter? What's the takeaway? What is the story I will tell my 8‑year‑old son? And as I was thinking last night, I thought, 'Maybe it's this.' I didn't get home until 11:30 last night, and tonight maybe I will kneel at his bedside and tell him: 'Son, there was once a boy whose daddy gave him a BB gun. He was little, he was about your age, and he learned to shoot it. And he got really, really good at shooting. It's one of those talents that God gives you. But then he asks you in the end, What did you do with your talent? And I know what you're thinking, buddy: Shooting a gun can come from God? Yes, son. It can."

"Everybody gets their own talents from God, but that one has to come with another talent because it comes with such responsibility. If God is going to give somebody the gun gift, he has to make sure that another gift is already in place and that's discernment. The gift of discernment. The gift of knowing good from bad in a second. I pray that you will never have to pull a trigger, son. But if you do, you'd better be right. Your head better be clear enough to ask God for an answer and to trust what you feel. The little boy whose dad gave him a BB gun grew up to be a hero."

"Chris had discernment. He was crystal clear about the good guys and the bad guys, but killing guys was not all there was to Chris Kyle. He was a hero for how he loved as well. He gave away his chance to be rich so that his friend's mom could have a house and food. His friend had just died in battle."

"Once in the car his sweet wife confessed her weaknesses, she said, 'I'm a mess, Chris.' But her husband didn't make her pay for that. He loved her mess. He said, 'Babe, you're a package deal.' His legend was growing as a warrior but rather than build on it, he left from the military to be a dad."

"You see, Raphe, when God told Chris it was okay to shoot, he did. When God told him it was time to sheath his sword, learn how to love even better than he shot, he listened and obeyed and did that too. It's discernment. Knowing the difference between right and wrong. Having the courage to be honest."

"It's like Sir Galahad: My strength is as the strength of ten because my heart is pure."

" And then when my story is told and my little boy's eyes are closed, I will probably stay on my knees a little longer than usual, and lay my head on that little boy's chest and thank God out loud that I've been given this gift of a son. And I will quietly once again ask God to help this dad be just a little more like Chris Kyle."

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

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."
