History on Repeat: We MUST Stand Together

Last year we led the largest civil rights march in Birmingham since MLK.

It was a peaceful march to come together to pledge that "ALL lives matter."

We spoke about those who were being persecuted by ISIS. But I also spoke about the coming repeat of the summer of 1968, the "Summer of Rage." I felt it would happen this summer in Philly and Cleveland.

I prayed that history would not repeat or even rhyme but unfortunately it is here.

There is much more to come, I fear.

Last summer, I asked my listeners to take and sign the original pledge from the MLK movement.

Many didn't understand why I would ask this, but I believe it is now becoming more clear.

I have been mocked for claiming that we need to be the new civil rights movement (that does NOT imply that I am MLK as the press has mocked).

To be those people, we must see the injustice wherever it happens. We must empathize with all of the victims whether they are white, black or blue. Left or right.

Hatred is growing. We are tearing ourselves apart and violence is NOT the answer.

The Age of Enlightenment was also called the Age of Reason. That is the problem with our time: We have lost all reason.

We must stand firm TOGETHER. United we stand --- divided we fall.

Parties, race, income, sexuality and religion all are meaningless when compared to what we all have in common. We are all Americans and HUMANS.

We are all members of the family of man. We all want peace. We all want to live in a world where equal justice prevails and we stand together and protect each other from harm.

Only a very few want revolution or chaos. That is who we must pray for and stand against. There is nothing or no person or group that can defeat us as long as we remember who we are, with charity for all and malice toward none.

Will you take the MLK pledge today? Will the members of your family?

I hereby pledge myself—my person and body—to the nonviolent movement. Therefore I will keep the following ten commandments:

1. Meditate daily on the teachings and life of Jesus.

2. Remember always that the non—violent movement seeks justice and reconciliation --- not victory.

3. Walk and talk in the manner of love, for God is love.

4. Pray daily to be used by God in order that all men might be free.

5. Sacrifice personal wishes in order that all men might be free.

6. Observe with both friend and foe the ordinary rules of courtesy.

7. Seek to perform regular service for others and for the world.

8. Refrain from the violence of fist, tongue, or heart.

9. Strive to be in good spiritual and bodily health.

10.Follow the directions of the movement and of the captain on a demonstration.

I sign this pledge, having seriously considered what I do and with the determination and will to persevere.

Please pray for all involved. Pray that our hearts may be softened and that we will have the decency and mental, spiritual and physical bravery for all we must do to stand for peace.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
