Glenn Beck: 9/12 approaching... be heard


Glenn will broadcast 9-12 coverage LIVE on the Fox News Channel on Saturday, September 12th from 1pm-3pm ET.

GLENN: Yvonne Donnelly is with me now and, Yvonne, you are somebody that is working with the 9/12 project and you've been talking to these different 9/12 groups all around the country.

DONNELLY: Yep.

GLENN: And, you know, you are kind of helping share ideas with each other and helping connect people together.

DONNELLY: Yep.

GLENN: What is the mood for 9/12 around the country, not just in Washington?

DONNELLY: The actual day, the actual march? I just think that everybody is fired up. I think that you've inspired us to go out, you inspired us on March 13th to educate ourselves, to form groups, to do things, to speak out. And so I just think, Glenn ‑‑ well, first of all, and we all thank you. I get so many e‑mails from people just thanking, for the inspiration. And we're just going to go out there and we're going to be heard.

GLENN: Okay.

DONNELLY: We've been silent for so long and it's time to be heard and so we're going to go march on Washington. But like you were saying, there's other events all across the country.

GLENN: Okay. So do you have any idea ‑‑ first of all, who is organizing this 9/12 march in Washington?

DONNELLY: That's ‑‑ there's a combined effort. They joined forces with Freedom Works, Tea Party Patriots, other conservative groups. You can find out more information on ResistNet.com.

GLENN: Okay.

DONNELLY: And just to be clear, you and I have talked about it.

GLENN: Yeah.

DONNELLY: That we are not the organizers.

GLENN: Yeah. 9/12 does not, at least, you know, the project that I started, doesn't endorse anybody.

DONNELLY: Nope.

GLENN: It doesn't endorse any ‑‑ anything.

DONNELLY: Nope.

GLENN: It was a way ‑‑ it was meant to be an inspiration for you to find your own voice. I will tell you that I am very leery of any 9/12er that wants to get in to endorse a particular candidate as a group. I think that's a mistake because ‑‑

DONNELLY: I agree.

GLENN: That's the way you get co‑opted by people. But you said this was conservative, but it also, the Ayn Rand group is also involved. Isn't Ayn Rand, the people from Ayn Rand, aren't they going to be at least speaking in Washington? Do you know?

DONNELLY: Let me just check and see because I have a list of the speakers' names in front of me.

GLENN: I thought there was ‑‑ I thought Ayn Rand was involved. Maybe not, maybe not.

DONNELLY: I don't see him on the list right now.

GLENN: Stu's saying that there are.

DONNELLY: You made the clarification, Glenn. But what they are saying is several other conservative groups. But you are correct because that's one of the things that I'm really trying to get across when I do communicate with other 9/12 groups. We are not considered a conservative movement.

GLENN: Right. It is a constitutionalist movement I think ‑‑

DONNELLY: I like that.

GLENN: The people who are involved with constitutionalists. They just would like the restoring of our Constitution. A good rule of thumb. Let's just read that thing from time to time.

DONNELLY: Yeah, you know, that's crazy.

GLENN: So Yvonne, do you have any idea how many people are coming or what are the, you know, are there ways to find out what's going on on this march? How do people get involved?

DONNELLY: Well, we have information on 912project.com that can lead people to information about the march, about travel. And there are links for ResistNet and Freedom Workss as well. And they can go to those sites, too. And as far as numbers, Glenn, like you asked, I mean, it's really hard to pinpoint. But we're hearing ‑‑ it's just so hard.

GLENN: Don't even say a number.

DONNELLY: Yeah.

GLENN: Because then the media will come out with a number and they will say, they expected 10,000 people and there were four there.

DONNELLY: Right, right. Right, it's just so hard.

GLENN: Here's the thing, America. I have no idea if people are going to come to this. I have no idea what's going on. You know, no idea. I'm not a community organizer. I will say that I said to you on March 13th, if you build it, they will come. Well, here it is. It has been built. Will you come? It's ‑‑ it starts the week of 9 ‑‑ is it starting early on Wednesday or something?

DONNELLY: The 10th is their actual event on the 10th, 11th and leading up to the 12th of the march.

GLENN: Okay.

DONNELLY: So there's all kinds of great meetings with representatives, different programs that you can participate in. Some of it is just like classroom type things to talk to us about leading on the grassroots efforts because that's something to remember, particularly about 9/12.

GLENN: Boy, are you kidding.

DONNELLY: We are grassroots people.

GLENN: So here's the thing. My part of the job was to cover it. I'm not a leader.

DONNELLY: Correct.

GLENN: I'm going to cover it. And I will make sure that there's nobody ‑‑ we're not going to take the cameras and shoot one way or another. We will shoot the truth as it happens. We will show it to the American people, and I'm not going to have a bumbling of people there that are going to give commentary that say, "Look at all of these crazy terrorists out there. Your voice will be heard. Your face will be seen. Your movement will be viewed by the nation on 9/12. What you do in that time period is up to you. Whether you show up, whether you want to be seen, whether you want your voice to be heard or if you choose to stay home and say, "You know what, I'm going to let somebody else do that," it will be seen. And it will be judged by the American press. It will be judged by the politicians on what you do. Find out all the information at the912project.com.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
