David Barton tells Glenn he thinks the Third Great Awakening has now begun

On his flight back to Dallas from Birmingham Sunday, Glenn was talking to David Barton about the Restoring Unity events they had just concluded. At one point, David said just matter-of-factly, "we're in the awakening." Glenn had to do a double take. "What did you just say?" Glenn asked.

Watch Glenn recount the conversation and get his reaction below.

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

GLENN: The people that were there -- when we went into the coliseum, the arena, and that was electric. I heard from so many people -- I don't know if you guys heard this or felt this, but the people that I talked to that had gone to all of our events said by far this was the most impactful event we had ever done.

PAT: I heard that many times.

GLENN: I think this is -- I think we're at the beginning. I flew back with David Barton yesterday. And David said, just matter-of-factly, he said, we're in the awakening. And I said, I leaned up and I said, hold on. What did you just say. And he said, we're in the awakening. And I said, the third great awakening? And he said, oh, yeah. I truly believe it's happening now. That's great that's great. He's the one that told me about the great awakening. He's like, we need the great awakening to happen. And we had people of all different faiths walking together.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean I marched with -- you know, that famous picture of the Woolworth's. Lunch counter. The guy is sitting at the counter. Clarence Henderson was one of the guys sitting at that counter. I found out -- I was giving speech -- I don't remember, one of the 18 speeches I gave this weekend. And I think it was at the Guiding Light Church. And somebody came up to me right before and said, that guy, do you know who he is? I'm like, no. He was the 18-year-old kid at the lunch counter in the 1960s. And showed me the picture.

And I'm like, oh, my gosh, I've seen that picture in our history books all the time. And he's the guy that marched next to me. He's the nicest guy. And I said, why are you doing this? He said, because a friend of mine told me -- he comes from Greensboro, North Carolina. And he drove down by himself to go. And I said, what made you do this? He said, it's time. It's just time. We have to come together or we're going to tear each other apart. Isn't that fantastic?

STU: It's great. I mean, it was nothing compared to the Black Lives Matter.

GLENN: Yeah. Of course.

PAT: 350 people. 350.

STU: I kind of screwed that up. Because we were talking before we went on the air, and I told you it was 350 people as reported by the media. Kind of was wrong on that. We should give them a little more credit. 325. So legitimately they reported at 325.

GLENN: Well, that's the media saying 325. It was probably 350.

STU: Maybe. PJ Media pointed this out brilliantly, which was, in Minnesota, 325 people marched. Reuters has a story about it. Reuters. And then the coverage of All Lives Matter, you've got 20,000 people. And it's good coverage, but by local Alabama -- local Alabama media, which is great. I'm glad they did it.

But it's like, why would a 20,000-person rally where you have a conservative host, who we're told all the time that conservatives and African-Americans can't get along, speaking at multiple African-American churches, where crowds are filled with black, white, every color, marching in unity.

PAT: That's exactly why didn't cover it.

GLENN: They need us to be apart.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: They'll say, we didn't know about it. That's the first thing. The only national coverage that I saw besides PJ Media, which I didn't know. The only national coverage that I saw was Mediaite, which is a New York-based media website that people who are in the media read.

So Mediaite covered it on Saturday. So they all knew. All these journalists, they all knew. They dealt -- what -- the next logical excuse besides I didn't know was -- or would be, well, good news doesn't sell. That's what they'll say. We need conflict. The editors, well, there's no conflict there. Yeah, well, here's the conflict, good versus evil.

JEFFY: A perfect example of that, the main picture of the Alabama website for Restoring Unity was the march and everyone holding God is the answer, courage, justice, and the cover of the Black Lives Matter picture is, Black Lives Matter protesters chant, pigs in a bacon, fry them like bacon. Good versus evil. Unbelievable.

PAT: Yeah, we have that audio.

VOICE: Pigs in a blanket! Fry them like bacon! Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon! Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon!

GLENN: See, here's the thing, Martin Luther King knew that when it came down to it -- and I've told you this for years. When it comes down to it, we have to be able to A, B compare. You have to give the American people a choice. So we had people from all different faiths. One of the leaders from the Southern Baptist Convention was there. Leaders from all different churches were there. Pastors, priests. All marching together. All different colors. At one point, Alveda was leading the march and singing Jesus Loves the Little Children. Now, are you going to go with that, pigs in a blanket fry them -- whatever they were saying.

STU: Fry them like bacon. When you're in the middle of this controversial time when we're told we're at such odds with each other, here's an opportunity to celebrate two different groups coming together and everyone having a great time, no arrests.

GLENN: No arrests.

STU: There was no throwing things at cops. There was no anger. It was just people coming together in a wonderful way for an entire weekend of service. And, you know, do you get that from Reuters. Do you get that from national media at all? No, you get 325 people walking around threatening pigs lives. That's what you get. That gets coverage.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
