What's next? Glenn explains how Ken Hutcherson and Alveda King helped him see where the freedom movement is headed

Last week, after speaking in Washington, Glenn felt a shift in his attitude about the direction the freedom movement is headed. He had conversations with members of the Black Robed Regiment in the days that followed that confirmed his new found optimism.

One of the individuals Glenn spoke with was Ken Hutcherson — who Glenn describes as one of the most amazing men he's ever met.

"I need you to get to know him pretty darn quickly," Glenn told his radio audience this morning, putting him in the same category with other great leaders of faith he's met like Billy Graham.

"He's something special. You're going to love Ken Hutcherson," Pat added.

Ken Hutcherson grew up in the south during the Civil Rights movement — not the best place to be if you're a young, black male. Glenn went on to explain that Ken hated MLK — he was too peaceful and Hutcherson was angry. For much of his youth, Ken was more of the Black Panther's side of the argument.

"He didn't get it at all," Glenn explained, "but then had a profound change and has spent his life trying to tell the truth and be a man of love. He's remarkable."

Ken, who is now a pastor, has devoted his life to teaching love and spreading the word of God. Glenn also explained that Hutcherson has severe, stage four bone cancer.

"This guy was supposed to be dead five years ago," Glenn said. "He has stage four bone cancer…he's riddled with cancer and doesn't have a lot of time. But as I was talking to him and as we got to know each other, I asked him to try to help me put some things together.  And really after just a couple of hours, I looked at him and I said, you're the guy. You're the guy. And didn't know he had cancer at the time."

Glenn went on to explain that it wasn't until the next day, when he was speaking at the Capitol, that he realized how sick he was. Glenn realized that it's because Hutcherson is out of time that he is so willing to stand and speak the truth plainly and clearly.

"I don't think we have a lot of time either," Glenn explained. "And he's not going to waste what could literally be his last breath positioning. He's not going to waste his possible last breath telling you something that is for, what, fame?  For money?  For power?  He's gone soon.  He's gone.  You can say whatever you want.  He's not going to listen to it, he's not going to listen to bull-crap, and he's not going to tell you bull-crap.  He's going to tell you exactly the way it is."

Glenn has said for the last few days that it's time for Americans to start leading the movement — that the leader they're waiting for isn't coming. They're the leader they're waiting for. And it's people like Ken Hutcherson, Rabbi Lapin, David Barton, and Alveda King who have helped him reach this point.

Alveda King was one of the first, and she'll join Glenn tonight at 5pm ET on the Glenn Beck Program for a Civil Rights bootcamp. Glenn recalled the first time he met the niece of MLK. He was on set in Washington D.C. before Restoring Honor.

"I had the faith, hope and charity — I had those three icons that I had painted with Paula Hawking and we had them up on the set.  And she walked in, she said, I just love you.  And I said, well, thank you, Ms. King.  And she said, you know my Uncle Martin, he said that was the answer.  She pointed to those.  And I said, 'faith, hope and charity?'  She said 'faith, hope and love.  That's what charity is, love.  Faith, hope and love.'  And she said, 'You know what the answer is.'  And I said, 'I don't know how to get there.'  She said, 'He didn't, either, for a long time.  None of us do'."

Glenn went on to explain that after Restoring Honor, Restoring Courage, and Restoring Love, all the pieces are there for the next step.

"This audience has done all of the pieces. Now it is time to put it into play and to put it into action," Glenn said. "Now is the time to link arms and go for a march, and we are putting them together.  And a man who is literally on his last leg, who has no time for BS, and I will tell you — he told me a story.  He said, he said, I had — I had somebody that I knew — I'll let him tell story, but he had somebody he knew try to mess with him because of his skin color and he said — he went up to them and he said, you know what you don't do?  You know what you never do?  You never mess with a man who just isn't afraid.  And I thought, boy, oh, boy, is that the truth.  And he has nothing to fear," Glenn said of Hutcherson.

"Courage is contagious," Glenn continued, "but you have to know exactly why you do the things you do — I think you know — and then you have to know what to do.  And that's where it's tricky. Because in this world with all of the legal games that they play, you need to have some big‑ass attorneys on your side."

"In the coming days I'm going to be asking you if you have an attorney firm and you are willing to dedicate your life, your fortune, and your sacred honor and you are willing to help us navigate the waters that will need to be navigated by the right Reverend and those who follow him, if you can help them and if you can help the American people know exactly where the lines are and what to do, so we are always doing the right thing.  And if you are prepared to stand," Glenn said.

"And I know a lot of people don't understand this, but you are fighting for Civil Rights.  It is the bill of civil rights," he continued. "Everything that is in the Bill of Rights, that's what's being violated.  Those, that's all that Martin Luther King was looking for.  What they've done is they've turned it into special rights.  But that's not what Martin Luther King was asking.  Martin Luther King was asking, apply that document to me.  Apply those rights to me.  And that's all you're asking for."

Glenn went on to explain that Civil Rights is the reason he and Bill Maher will agree on certain issues. But it's because the language is difference that the media makes such a big deal about it. It all comes down to freedom, you just have to understand their language: Constitutional Rights, Civil Rights, and the Bill of Rights — the right and left may label them differently, but on the fundamental issues it's all about freedom.

"There's a difference in our language but not a difference in the meaning.  We describe them as constitutional rights; they describe them as civil rights," Glenn said. "When we start speaking their language and you know what we mean and we know what they mean, which is those rights that are guaranteed and given to every man by God, when we start defending those things and start speaking the universal language and we start doing with peace and love, I'm telling you the world's going to change, and you look out.  Because we are not going to sit down.  I'm going out swinging.  I am not going to sit down."

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
