What did Martin Luther King Jr. say in 1959 that has great significance today?

Glenn has been asking his listeners and viewers to familiarize themselves with the teachings and leadership of men like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi. Glenn has been advocating for a nonviolent approach to the dismay of many, but on radio this morning, Glenn read portions of King’s “A Tough Mind and A Tender Heart” sermon that articulates much of what he has been trying to convey these last few months.

“Please, I'm begging you, please read as much Martin Luther King as you possibly can,” Glenn said. “Yesterday I was reading, and I'm tell you, this sounds exactly like the people in Washington D.C. He's talking about the difference between, you know, be wise like serpents and tender as doves. That's what we're commanded to be – as wise as serpents and as tender as doves.”

In the sermon, King admits “the shape of the world today does not permit us the luxury of soft mindedness.” At the same time, however, King takes on “those hard hearted among us who feel that the only way to deal with oppression is to rise up against the oppression with physical violence and corroding hatred.”

Ultimately, King offers an alternative path that combines tough mindedness with tender heartedness:

“A third way is open in our quest for freedom, namely non-violent resistance, that combines though mindedness and tenderheartedness and avoids the complacency and do-nothingness of the soft minded and the violence and bitterness of the hardhearted.”

After listening to Glenn highlight various aspects of King's work, Stu could not help but draw parallels to some of the things Glenn has been talking about recently.

“Is this related to what you've been talking about as far as the direction of the company and the direction that you're going in,” Stu asked Glenn. “It's not just all politics and seats and things like that. There has to be more to it because that's not how everyone connects. You have to also, you know, do the things that human beings do. What you're describing is not some magical formula. It's just being a human being.

“That's it. That's all it is,” Glenn responded. “Martin Luther King goes into saying, ‘What we're being presented with is one of two choices’…We're going to stand and we're going to stand firm and we're going to use our brains. We don't use our guns. We use our brains because you win by strategy. You use your brains and then you come to the table as the only ones that also are relating to the heart and you win.”

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
