Black Lives Matter activists not all that into Bernie Sanders

While democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been growing in popularity among white liberals, he's apparently not doing particularly well with minority groups. On radio Monday, Glenn played audio of the start of a Bernie Sanders speech in Seattle. He didn't get very far before it became clear how unpopular Sanders was among "Black Lives Matter" activists.

Video showed Black Lives Matter activists take over the microphone and shove Sanders aside right after his initial greeting to the audience. He eventually walked away and left the event without ever delivering his speech.

Watch Glenn's reaction from radio.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors.

GLENN: Here he is in Seattle as he just takes the stage. Listen to this.

BERNIE: Thank you, Seattle, for being one of the most progressive cities in the United States of America.

PAT: Kind of a weird thing to thank somebody for.

STU: It's funny. He's about to reap the benefits of that policy.

PAT: Yeah. He is. And it is true. Seattle is incredibly progressive. But listen to what happens immediately after that. Two women get up on stage.

(applauding)

VOICE: We -- we want an opportunity on the mic.

VOICE: I will put you on the mic.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. Stop for a second. Two women are on the mic. Now, you have to ask yourself, this is a presidential candidate. Where were they meeting? Do you know where this was?

PAT: It was outside in a park somewhere. It was a lot of people.

GLENN: I went five years ago to Safeco Field. And we had about 8- or 10,000 people there. We were getting death threats at the time.

PAT: Security was really tight.

GLENN: I actually -- flying out to Seattle, I actually wrote -- my children don't even know this -- I actually wrote them a letter in case I was killed because we had so many death threats. And security was so tight on that. Here's a presidential candidate --

PAT: And nobody gets these girls offstage.

GLENN: He opens it up. And they walk right directly to him. They climb up on stage. Walk directly to him. Where is the security?

PAT: I mean, they're standing on either side of a presidential -- a US senator and a presidential candidate, standing on either side of him. Nobody is doing anything about it.

JEFFY: It was a place called West Lake Park in Seattle. Wherever that is.

GLENN: Okay. So here's what happens. Now, he's walked away.

VOICE: If you do not listen to her, your event will be shut down right now. Right now.

PAT: What?

GLENN: Okay. Stop. She's making a terroristic threat. She is saying, we control this event. And unless you listen to her -- now, Bernie Sanders has walked away. The voice you will hear of a guy is somebody else.

PAT: Event organizer.

GLENN: Right. Bernie Sanders is just standing in the back watching this debacle happen. She's making a terroristic threat. If you don't listen to us right now, we'll shut down your event right now. We are in control of your event. Listen.

VOICE: It's your decision. Now.

VOICE: We are going to let you on the mic. Okay.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. Listen, they're chanting -- the people of Seattle. The progressives of Seattle are chanting, let him speak. Let him speak. Let him speak.

VOICE: Let him speak. Let him speak.

VOICE: Okay. All right. So we are trying to be reasonable. We are trying to be reasonable.

VOICE: We are reasonable!

GLENN: Stop. I love that.

PAT: This is my favorite part. We are reasonable! I'll show you right now how damn reasonable I am by stabbing you in the face! That's how reasonable I am!

GLENN: Do you remember the first time we had a death threat, Stu? It was the Palestinian guy who called. The FBI were involved in this and everything else. And the guy -- we have him on tape. And it's the funniest thing. It wasn't at the time, but now looking back, it was the funniest thing ever. He was a Palestinian who said you got to shut Glenn Beck up about talking about Israel because the Palestinians, they aren't killers. They aren't killers. And he's got to know that. We're not all killers. And if he doesn't stop saying things like this about Israel, I will kill him myself!

STU: It legitimately happened.

GLENN: He legitimately said that. It's hysterical.

VOICE: We're going to let you on the mic.

(yelling)

GLENN: Stop again. Stop again. It sounds like Pat is there. It doesn't even sound real. It sounds like a cartoon Pat scream.

PAT: It does.

JEFFY: Yeah.

VOICE: We will after Senator Sanders. After Senator Sanders.

VOICE: Stop talking!

VOICE: After Senator Sanders. After Senator Sanders.

STU: Stop talking.

PAT: Yeah, she's screaming at him, we are reasonable. We are respectful. Stop talking. Now, it's his event. It's Bernie Sanders' event. And they're not invited, by the way. They're just insisting that they be allowed to speak anyway. What group is afforded that --

GLENN: So here is the progressive way to handle it.

VOICE: Do not tell me --

VOICE: After Senator Sanders.

VOICE: Sit down. Sit down.

VOICE: Okay. All right.

PAT: And Senator Sanders walks off.

GLENN: And they give them the event.

PAT: And they give them the event. The event belongs now to black lives matters.

GLENN: Congratulations.

STU: This is like the negotiating tactics of us on the Iran deal.

GLENN: It really is. I'm reasonable!

STU: Oh, they said they're reasonable. Okay. You get to do whatever you want.

PAT: I will kill you! You are the great Satan! Let us do whatever we want!

STU: Okay. All right. Here is all your money for the weapons.

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know youtu.be


Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."
