Glenn and Dr. Alveda King reveal the six steps to fight for civil rights

On Tuesday night, Glenn did a show that he never thought he would actually do, but it had been in the back of his mind since he was on FOX News: he must teach people how to fight for civil rights using nonviolent means. There has been no greater role model in modern history for this struggle than Martin Luther King, Jr., and Glenn invited his niece Dr. Alveda King onto the show to educate the audience on what they must do.

Glenn explained that this fight must be rooted in values and principles, and that's what the 9/12 Project was all about: 9 values and 12 principles. Using values and principles, people show others how to be righteous, even when confronting their adversaries.

The Restoring Honor, Restoring Courage, and Restoring Love events were all about strengthening the individuals who are part of this movement. In Washington DC, everyone gathered pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to God. In Israel, Americans showed that they would stand in the face of evil and would not be afraid to speak. And in Dallas, those who filled Cowboys Stadium and watched across the country chose love over hate, creation over destruction.

Glenn explained that the new movement for civil rights must learn from the example of African Americans in the 1960s. They confronted police brutality, oppression, segregation, and terror with honor, courage, and love. Glenn said it was important to learn from their example in order to do the same today. That's why he invited Alveda King onto his show.

To start, he quoted MLK who gave the model all must follow: “There is little hope for us until we become tough minded enough to break loose from the shackles of prejudice, half-truths, and downright ignorance…but we must not stop with the cultivation of a tough mind. [We must also have] a tender heart…”

Alveda King spent the show walking through the first three steps (of six) of Nonviolent Social Change, a "sequential process of nonviolent conflict-resolution and social change based on Dr. King’s teachings". From The King Center:

  1. Information Gathering – The way you determine the facts, the options for change, and the timing of pressure for raising the issue is a collective process.
  2. Education – The process for developing articulate leaders, who are knowledgeable about the issues. It is directed toward the community through all forms of media about the real issues and human consequences of an unjust situation.
  3. Personal Commitment – Means looking at your internal and external involvement in the nonviolent campaign and preparing yourself for long-term as well as short-term action.
  4. Negotiation – Is the art of bringing together your views and those of your opponent to arrive at a just conclusion or clarify the unresolved issues, at which point, the conflict is formalized.
  5. Direct Action – Occurs when negotiations have broken down or failed to produce a just response to the contested issues and conditions.
  6. Reconciliation – Is the mandatory closing step of a campaign, when the opponents and proponents celebrate the victory and provide joint leadership to implement change.

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.
