A Heartfelt Plea, Nation of Islam and Blood on Obama's Hands -- All in a Weekend

In what is frighteningly becoming routine, Monday's news was once again dominated by stories of a tragic weekend. It started with the ISIS attack in Nice, France. Then, there was an attempted coup in Turkey. Finally, and the nation awoke to learn three officers had been shot and killed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn opened the show reading a haunting Facebook post one of the slain officers posted only two weeks before he was gunned down:

I'm tired physically and emotionally. Disappointed at some family and friends and officers for some reckless comments. But, hey, what's in your heart is in your heart. I still love you all because take hate -- hate takes too much energy, and I definitely won't be looking at you the same. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me or my wife. It was needed and much appreciated. I swear to God I love this city, but I wonder now if this city loves me. In uniform, I get nasty, hateful looks, and out of uniform, some consider me a threat. I've experienced so much in my short life, and these last three days have tested me to the core. When people you know begin to question your integrity, you realize, they don't really know you at all. Look at my actions. They speak loud and clear. Finally, I personally want to send prayers out to everyone directly affected by all of the police shootings. These are trying times. Please, don't let hate infect your heart. This city must and will get better. I'm working in these streets so any protester, any officer, any friends, family -- whoever -- if you see me and need a hug or just want to say a quick prayer, I got you."

The media narrative didn't fit with this shooting because the officer was black, but Glenn dug deeper into who the shooter was.

"Two weeks later, he was executed," Glenn said. "This has nothing to do with Black Lives Matter, because he's a black life. He's a black man. Does his life not matter? This was Nation of Islam."

Glenn reminded listeners the Nation of Islam was responsible for the killing of Malcolm X. Unrest breeds fear and when people are afraid, there are some radical ideas come to the forefront --- and this was on display this weekend.

"I don't know if anybody noticed, but there was talk --- serious talk --- on television about martial law in America. We haven't even hit the tough times yet, gang," Glenn said. "They're talking in Cleveland today, chief of police who says, 'I'm an NRA member. I'm a gun guy. I'm a Second Amendment guy, but can't we just suspend this concealed weapons permit just for a while?'"

Suspending the second amendment is never a good idea and this example just goes to show politicians often miss the mark on these issues. President Obama barely paid lip service to the fallen police officers while glorifying the 'Black Lives Matter' movement and those who were shot by police.

This was not lost on the president of the Cleveland Police Association, who came out with the following statement:

The president of the United States validated the false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the media are pressing out there to the public, validated with his very divisive statements, and now we see an escalation. This has gotten too bad. We need some leadership in this country to come forward and put an end to this. I don't care if it's clergy. I don't care who it is. But somebody has to step up and put an end to it. Because it's a false narrative and very influential people that are politicizing the false narrative. Absolutely insane that we have a president of the United States and a governor of Minnesota making the statements that they've made less than one day after those police-involved shootings. And those police-involved shootings, make no mistake, are what absolutely has triggered this brash of senseless murders of law enforcement officers across this country. And it is reprehensible that the president of the United States has blood on his hands, and it will not be able to come washed off.

Obama may have blood on his hands, but one person has fingerprints all over this rash of police shootings --- Louis Farrakahn.

"In the 1960s, that's what they were doing. In the Summer of Rage, that's what [Farrakahn] was preaching," Glenn said. "'Now is the time. Rise up. Kill them.' He's doing the same thing now. 'Rise up, and kill them.' We have asked for how many years, 'Where is the press on him?' He is fomenting hatred."

It is beginning to look a lot like the summer of 1968.

"When is anybody going to recognize that assassinations are happening right now? And those assassinations are only going to get worse. They are going to get worse," Glenn said. "They are going to spread from cops, I believe, to media figures and also to public officials."

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.
