GLENN: Officer Goforth. Incredible funeral. Probably the most humbling funeral or anything like that I've been to. Really, truly remarkable. There were 11,000 people that attend. There was 6,000 in the actual church, and it was remarkable. When they dismissed the audience -- or, the congregation, they said if the VIPs, the judges, and the politicians, any VIP, if you will stay, and if the family will stay, we want to release everybody one by one.

So let's start with the honor guard. And this whole section got up, maybe about 5 percent of the audience got up. And that was police honor guard from Canada and all across the United States. Remarkable.

Then they said, if the police officers will stand up and be excused and head for the exits. And I would say 80 percent of the audience stood up. And those were uniformed police officers and then followed by the plainclothes police officers. The only ones left to excuse were the maybe 300 VIPs and then the family of about 30 people. The rest of that audience was police officers.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: And when they went out -- when we went outside and they brought the casket outside. I've never seen anything like this. It was so powerful.

Kathleen Goforth, his wife, when she walked in, there was an audible gasp when she walked in. She was held on each elbow by a police officer and brought in by the sheriff's department.

And we couldn't figure out. None of us in our group had ever seen anyone react this way. We had never seen anyone's expression. We couldn't place it. We looked at that and said, I've never seen that in a movie. I've never seen that in real life. I've never seen anyone's reaction this way. And she was almost a blank slate, as if -- as if she was in a total state of shock right then. And the way she was looking at the audience as she walked in, literally caused you see to gasp.

People immediately started to cry. When it was over and she walked out, the only thing I could compare it to, the only thing I could begin to get my arms around is that she was -- she was almost confused or she was blown away by how many people were there. Because what she was doing was, she was looking. As she walked by us, she was looking -- slowly walking by and slowly looking at each individual face, as if she was trying to imprint on us, as if she was trying to remember who was there and having us remember that she saw us and was thanking us for being there.

It was -- it was heartbreaking. Absolutely heartbreaking. The gas station where he was shot -- what, 15 times -- is just overwhelmed with flowers.

And now we're starting to see great things happening around the country. People are starting to watch the backs of police officers. Not just here in Texas, but all across the country.

And I will tell you that I am -- I think that we're at a turning point. I think we're at a disconnect. Let me say it this way. I really believe that history will go back in time and look at this particular period of time and they will say, this was the turning point.

This was the fork in the road. And because they chose this direction, they either destroyed themselves or they survived. But it was this season. It was this fall. This end of this summer. It was this time that the Americans chose who they would become.

And I don't know which one we're going to choose yet. I have hope that we are starting to wake up and we are starting to choose the right way.

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:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
