Trucker group plans to shut down D.C. for 3 days… and Glenn supports them?

A group of truckers is reportedly planning to shut down Washington, D.C. for three days straight beginning on October 11 to protest “corruption against the Constitution.” A Facebook page for “Truckers To Shut Down America” has gained more than 16,000 likes, though it remains unclear how many truckers actually plan to take part in the event.

“There's a story here that I would really like to get behind as a show, as a series of shows,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I think that we should find out, first about these truckers and then stand behind them. This is the number one store on TheBlaze right now.”

According to the group’s Facebook description: “The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!”

A YouTube video posted by “Kevin Allen” on the “Truckers To Shut Down America” Facebook page, the event is labeled as a general “strike” by the American people against the federal government and its “bulls**t.”

(Warning: Some strong language)

“Facebook provides additional information behind the action, which ranges from universal health care to the I.R.S. Scandal to Benghazi,” Glenn said. He proceeded to read through the objectives of the protest:

“‘Remove the president from office for high crimes of treason and misdemeanors. We want a congressional hearing on Benghazi and seal team 6. Lois learner needs to be put in jail. No amnesty. Remove all Muslims from our government that do not uphold the constitution.’ That's the only one that I kind of think is a little reckless here. But it does say, ‘does not uphold the Constitution.’ I would not make it Muslims. I would make it any person that doesn't uphold the Constitution. ‘Remove Eric Holder from office for crimes against the people and the Constitution. Last but not least, the price of fuel.’ Do you agree with those? Do you get behind those?”

Pat and Stu both agreed that the trucker’s list of demands is not unreasonable. Glenn quickly pointed out, however, the under appreciated power of the trucking industry in this country.

“After September 11, if you remember, Jeffy and Stu, I said, ‘We don't need Department of Homeland Security. We need to see something from the truckers.’ The truckers are the ones moving. They know what's going on. They see what's happening and what's moving across the country,” Glenn said. “And you know, you get the truckers to strike, you stop the American economy. You really do. You stop it.”

“Do you know how many times your grocery store is restocked? Five times a day on average. You stop trucks from coming into grocery stores for three days. There's nothing left. There's nothing left. That's why people, when we talked about food insurance and everything else,” he continued. “We say you don't know how fragile the system is. You stop trucks for three days in this country. You won't recognize your stores because everything is going to shut down because the truckers come in and replenish everything. Yeah, they could have a huge impact. And the ones who are really impacted by the price of gasoline and everything else are the truckers… They work way too hard. Way too hard.”

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
