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.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
