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.

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
