GLENN: Russ is in from if 9/12 Patriot, 9/12 Project, the 9/12 Patriots in Delaware (website). Russ, how many times have we — how many times have we met? Three times?
GLENN: And, no, we've met three times now. This is our third time because —
RUSS: This is the third.
GLENN: We met — you are the guy who gave me the Sam Adams book which quite honestly you changed the course of my mind of where I was headed. It played a huge role, the Samuel Adams book. You gave it to me from all the 9/12 Patriots in Delaware. And I read that book and it opened my eyes to things that I just didn't see before and I thank you for that. And then you were there on the Sam Adams show. We met there. And you brought in a book signed by William Ayers. It's my book. Now we have the one 9/12 member — is he a 9/12 member up in Maine, right? New Hampshire? He met Van Jones and he got Van Jones to sign it. When did you see Bill Ayers?
RUSS: Well, I didn't. But one of my members, which is one of our 9/12 Delaware Patriots, Tim Ryan.
GLENN: Hi, Tim.
RYAN: This is the gentleman that got the book signed.
GLENN: How did you run into Bill Ayers and what happened?
RYAN: First off I heard your show when you were talking about the Van Jones book.
RYAN: And I thought, this is supposed to be a brilliant man; he signed the book. I thought, I wonder if the rest of them, the progressives, is that brilliant.
RYAN: So a couple of days later there was an event up at University of Delaware where Bill Ayers was going to be speaking and I decided to go up there to see if he was as smart as Van Jones.
GLENN: And so you gave him the book and what did you say?
RYAN: I had to sit through his speech for about an hour and a half. So it was pretty painful.
GLENN: Yeah. What did he say?
RYAN: And after the speech, I went up to him and I asked him if he would sign a book. And he said, what's the book? He opened it up and he realized it was your book and he was kind of taken aback. But I was really surprised. He signed it.
GLENN: Good thing he didn't have any, you know, C4 on him or something. Because I hear he likes to blow things up.
RYAN: And the picture that he drew is his self portrait, kind of makes it looks like he is holding a bomb. I don't know if he realized, it's supposed to be a peace sign in his hand.
GLENN: You are kidding me. Well, that is his way to peace, yes. Bomb your way to peace. Peace through strength. I bet William Ayers and Ronald Reagan had a lot in common. Peace through strength. So he signed the book and did he — because Van Jones was on CNN after he signed the other one and he was — he said that, "I even turned around one of the Glenn Beck fans." Did he think he turned you around?
RYAN: I'm pretty sure I left with him thinking he didn't turn me around.
GLENN: (Laughing). Did you bring the book with you?
GLENN: Let's show it on the Insider Extreme. Do you have it? Hold it up to the camera there, Stu, so people can see it and the little picture that he drew. If you are watching on the Insider Extreme, if you don't know what it is, go to GlennBeck.TV. It is this program broadcast, a six camera shoot and everything else. Now Stu's holding it up. Go ahead and get that. There it is. That drives them crazy. Oh, look at him. I thought he was peeing.
GLENN: He looks like that guy, you know, the mud flap kid? Calvin and Hobbs.
GLENN: He looks like he's peeing. On peace. Which I think is —
GLENN: Is actually appropriate as well.
PAT: It works.
GLENN: What did he write there?
STU: This is great. I mean, you know, you probably didn't like Bill Ayers for some reason before this but he's going to turn you around here. He says, for a world of peace powered by love.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh!
PAT: Powered by love.
GLENN: Oh, these hippies.
PAT: That's beautiful.
GLENN: Russ, you fought in Vietnam.
RUSS: Yes, sir.
PAT: That's beautiful.
GLENN: Can you believe these hippies are running our damn country?
RUSS: I'll tell you one thing I believe. When I came back from over there, I kept my mouth shut and did my job. I worked all my life. This time around, I'm not keeping my mouth shut.
PAT: Good for you, Russ.
GLENN: I've got to tell you, man, you know, here's the secret of what happened. Here's a secret of what happened to us. These people, the same summer we put a man on the moon, these people were naked in the mud at Woodstock. The same summer, three weeks apart. That was the split in America. That's why you don't understand them and they don't understand you. Because we were looking and saying, my gosh, look what we can do, look what a man can do. No other country has ever done it. At the same time we were putting a man on the moon, the other part of the country was going, yeah, man, let's have sex in the mud with a whole bunch of people! Power to the people!
PAT: That was powered by love.
GLENN: It was powered by love.
PAT: Powered by love.
GLENN: Yeah, you go ahead and cook food on that love. Here's — and they are going to expect us to do it soon. That's the split. That's the split. And it's you, Russ. You were on the side standing up against these clowns. And now they are running the thing.
RUSS: Well, you know, you are talking a lot about you have your book which you just showed there. It's all books. This book, the 5,000 Year Leap, one of your fans, my nephew, Mark Marshall about two years ago, he knows I'm not a big reader but he knew I was frustrated and he gave me this book. He said, Uncle Russ, you've got to read this book. I read it. I was never so ashamed of myself.
GLENN: It's amazing, isn't it?
RUSS: And then you came along because he said, Uncle Russ, you've got to listen to this guy, Glenn Beck.
GLENN: Love this. Love him, it's amazing.
RUSS: And since we gave you the book Samuel Adams and as you probably said there, we turned your thought process.
GLENN: You did.
RUSS: We're helping you with that. We'll carry that burden with you. But you drove me out of my recliner. Because I sat there and listened to you on the 13th of March and I said, that's enough crying. It's time to do something.
GLENN: I only have about 20 seconds. How many members do you have now? You started the 9/12 project in Delaware. How many members now do you have?
RUSS: The 9/12 Delaware Patriots have about 2200 members.
GLENN: One person makes a difference.
RUSS: That's what we're telling everybody.
GLENN: 9/12 Delaware Patriots, keep it up. Keep it up. God bless you.
