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.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
