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.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

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.
