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.


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.


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.

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."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
