‘You want a revolution?’ Glenn explains why your most powerful weapon is your right to vote

Glenn spent a large portion of this morning’s radio program discussing the standoff in Nevada between the federal government and the Bundy family. Glenn advocated for a peaceful resolution to this tense situation.

“I will tell you that I do believe that the federal government does want to put ranchers out of business… I do believe these things are happening, and it's called Agenda 21. We wrote a book on it. I am fully clear on what the federal government wants to do,” Glenn said. “With that being said, no matter how clear I am on these things, the answer is not violence.”

Glenn spoke of the power and importance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Pledge of Nonviolence, which was signed by those who marched alongside him in 1963. The pledge reads:

1. As you prepare to march meditate on the life and teachings of Jesus

2. Remember the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation – not victory.

3. Walk and talk in the manner of love; for God is love.

4. Pray daily to be used by God that all men and women might be free.

5. Sacrifice personal wishes that all might be free.

6. Observe with friend and foes the ordinary rules of courtesy.

7. Perform regular service for others and the world.

8. Refrain from violence of fist, tongue and heart.

9. Strive to be in good spiritual and bodily health.

10. Follow the directions of the movement leaders and of the captains on demonstrations.

But several listeners called in this morning to explain that while they too do not advocate violence, they are unclear how much more Americans are supposed to take. It is easy to feel powerless, and yet, Glenn reminded his audience that 2014 offers a unique opportunity to kick-start a different type of revolution - a non-violent one rooted in principle.

There are no two ways about it: A lot of bad things are going on in this country right now.

Are things happening that are very bad? Yes. Are they killing people with drones? Yes. Are they spying on you? Yes. Are they using the I.R.S. to harass you? Yes. Are they trying to put ranchers out of business? Yes,” Glenn said. “Yes, they're doing all of those things. And all of those things are bad. And all of those things we have to stand up against.”

But we must not forget the power we have to affect change. With the 2014 midterm elections just around the corner and a bevy of strong candidates running in tight races around the country, this is the time to get involved and really make an impact.

“May I remind you: We do have representation. We do have people that are coming up for election in the next 60 days,” Glenn said. “You want to do something? Put your gun down. Go grab some signs. Go grab some information and go door to door in Kentucky and get Mitch McConnell out. Go door to door in South Carolina and get Lindsay Graham out. You want to make a difference? That is a way. You want a revolution? There's your revolution... Everything hasn't been exhausted by any stretch of the imagination.”

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.
