Free Justina! Glenn explains why you have ‘the opportunity to save a woman’s life’

After breaking a gag order and speaking to Glenn and TheBlaze on Monday, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) filed for Lou Pelletier, the father of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier who is being held against her parents’ will, to be held in contempt of court, a family source told TheBlaze.

“I will tell you that in a meeting I had this morning, I said: I don't care if only four people read the story. I want this to be the lead story on TheBlaze from hereon out.” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Find every reason to talk about it. Turn over every stone. Show me everything that people can do and are doing. Put it in there. I don't care if nobody's reading the story. This is the most important story to me because you have a chance. You have the opportunity to save a woman's life.”

Glenn admitted that when he first heard this story last fall he assumed there had to be another lawyer – something that would help explain why something like this can happen in America. But after reading the thoroughly researched reports from the journalists at TheBlaze and speaking to Lou for several hours this week, Glenn is sure that he and his team have not missed anything.

“I want to talk to you about Justina who is that little girl up in Boston Children's Hospital. She has been transferred and is to be transferred again. She was taken away from her family. The story doesn't make any sense,” Glenn said. “For the longest time, we didn't report on it because we were like, ‘Okay, there's got to be something that we're missing. What is it that we're missing here? There's got to be something.’ No, we're not missing. We talked to her father yesterday, spent two days with him. No, I don't think we're missing anything.”

Because juvenile court records are confidential, a Massachusetts judge placed a gag order on all involved in the appeal process. Justina’s parents, doctors, and caregivers have been unable to talk about the case, but 13 months after this ordeal began, the family has had enough. By speaking out this week, however, Justina’s father, Lou, now faces possible jail time.

“Because he was on this broadcast yesterday and television on Monday, DCF has filed that he be held in contempt of court. He may go to jail for standing up for his daughter. If he doesn't go to jail, the other option is that the state fines him. The family is already broke because he is David, and he's standing up against Goliath,” Glenn explained. “And they have already destroyed this family. Emotionally the State and Boston Children's Hospital have already destroyed this family. He doesn't have any more money left. All he has is his voice, and the state is trying to silence that. I think Lou is willing to go to jail. I know he is. He's willing to go to jail.”

What will happen to this case if Lou does in fact go to jail? Who will speak out on Justina’s behalf? The media has been all but silent in this case, but Glenn made an emotional plea on radio this morning.

“Somebody has to stand in the gap because all they have to do is silence people… I want to come to you and humbly beg for your help,” Glenn pleaded. “This is why they are silencing Lou. If he dries up as a source… then there are no sources. The hospital will just say, ‘Well, the state has custody of her, we can't talk about any kind of patients’… And the state will say, ‘For the good of the child, we can't talk about it anymore.’ Meanwhile, dad will be rotting in jail… and mom won't say anything because mom’s got to be there for her other sick children! And so what will happen? The story will be lost. In this particular case, the press is literally trying to bury the story.”

While Glenn will be doing anything and everything he can think of to raise awareness for Justina and her family, he cannot do it alone. It is important that you share this story any and every way you can. Just an hour into the radio program, #FreeJustina was trending nationally in the United States:

“If they put Lou in jail, if they take what little money he has left away from him, who will stand in the gap? Who will be Justina's voice? I will. But one cannot do it,” Glenn concluded. “You are more powerful than you think you are. Those who are with us far outnumber those who are against us. If we will just all choose to do something good, if we will all see Justina as our daughter, the world changes. They've said horrible things about us – let's show them the good we can do… Go to FreeJustina.com. I am currently calling everybody I know in Washington, which is, I know all of them or they know me but not a lot of them are friendly. I'm calling every civil rights attorney I can think of. Please don't call me and tell me what we can do. Just do it. Twitter. Facebook. Just do it. FreeJustina.com.”

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."
