GLENN: I want to talk to George, would you say you are my most liberal friend? I mean, you don't know all my friends but you are so liberal.

LANGE: Ah.

GLENN: George Lange is one of the most decent men I know. He is I mean, he is a guy who came over to my house one time because he was going to take some pictures of me underwater in a suit and he came and he said, you'll be proud of me. I got a red, white and blue swimsuit. And I looked at it and I said, that's the Cuban flag, you communist! And it really was. And he was like, oh, wow, it is. I thought it was American. Anyway, and George, when I first met him, he refused to take pictures of George W. Bush because he told me and he didn't know who I was at the time. He said, I couldn't do him justice because I don't like him. And he said, you don't, you don't take a job unless you can do the right thing and take an honorable picture of somebody and something that would reflect them, and I was afraid that my view would be what was reflected in those pictures. And I looked at him and he didn't know that I was conservative at the time and I shook do you remember this, George?

LANGE: Sure.

GLENN: And I shook his hand and I said, you are an honorable man. And we have been friends ever since, and he's the only guy that does photos of me if I can, if I can ever help it. Because he's a decent human being and a world class photographer. He is the Annie Leibovitz of our day who's not going to go broke.

LANGE: Hopefully.

GLENN: Anyway, so George, I hired George to go down to 8/28 and take pictures really of my family because I really wanted things documented for my family and I was going to do a family album. And then the more we talked about it, he was like, well, you know, we should have a couple more photographers and take pictures of the crowd and take pictures of the event and everything else. And so we did and now I think, George, you have 8,000 photos?

LANGE: Right, right.

GLENN: So we have 8,000 photos of 8/28, and we started looking through them and decided that this has to be a picture book because it's remarkable the photos that George has taken of the crowds and the lines and the people and the children. And the event and the behind the scenes stuff, George, is just incredible. Just incredible.

So can you tell me a little bit about what you're looking for because we want to add some things to this book.

LANGE: Basically the story that I was photographing was on your side of the barricades. It was your experience, what it was like looking out. And one of the most memorable moments of the event is when we all came from behind the curtain and looked out at the crowd and realized what was going on and that feeling, I mean, all of us burst into tears, you know, each person from that was working with you when they looked out, the power of what was going on out in the audience, I really want to be a big part of the book and the most important part of the book. And we're really trying to get the experience that people had when they were planning for the event, when they were packing it home, packing up their cars, getting to the buses, the experience on the bus, getting to the capital. And then all the things that happened at the capital, there have been all these stories about random acts of kindness, people reaching out to other people that didn't have hotel rooms, people that needed their place saved in line, people having tickets to things and sharing tickets, all of those experiences we want to capture in pictures and we're hoping to have them sent in, along with people's stories.

GLENN: Right. We don't have and, you know, George and I laughed about it yesterday. I guess we should have thought this one through. We don't have pictures of people in the middle of the night, you know, sleeping out or in the middle of the night in their hotel room, you know, sharing, you know, the floor of a hotel room because it was the only one they could find. We don't have people, pictures of their families on buses, et cetera, et cetera. So where do people send these, George?

LANGE: I don't have the address.

GLENN: You don't have the address? Oh, here it is. Upload your photos at GlennBeck.com/828photos. GlennBeck.com/828photos. And we're looking again, pictures after the event, pictures from the days leading up to the event.

LANGE: Pictures of families.

GLENN: Pictures of families, pictures of the garbage carefully placed around the garbage cans, packing your cars, if you have it. Pictures of people on the trains and the planes and the automobiles. People walking in these giant crowds blocks and blocks away from the event. Any kind of pictures that you have like that.

LANGE: The subway.

GLENN: You know, the subway lines we were told were two football fields we were told this by the transit authority two football fields long. Does anybody have a picture of that?

LANGE: Right.

GLENN: Please send them to us. Now

LANGE: We have most of what was going on the stage covered pretty well, although we're interested in seeing if there's some interesting pictures of that. What we're looking for is how people were interacting, the people they were next to, the people they were meeting and, you know, the

GLENN: Experience of getting there.

LANGE: Things they were taking away.

GLENN: Yeah. Also we want to hear about your shared experiences. If you ever stories send those to serve@GlennBeck.com. That's serve@GlennBeck.com. The uploaded photos at GlennBeck.com/828photos. And if you want to order this book, it is going to be a really beautiful coffee table book of the photos and the memories. I'm also going to have journal entries in there. It will outline the, you know, the 40 Days and 40 Nights plan in there. It will have behind the scenes are we going to put things in, George, some of those photos of my family and me and the children and everything else?

LANGE: Those are just so amazing.

GLENN: We've never I don't publish photos of my children, but George actually snapped some of the most amazing real intimate scenes with me and my family and my children leading up to it and he happened to capture them in a way where you can't see their faces which, you know, for obviously security reasons. But I want to include them because this is really about family. I'm going to show you some pictures tonight on television because I'm outlining another part of this plan unrelated to the book and I'm going to show you some pictures tonight of families that went to 8/28 that are stunning, just says everything that you need to know about what this is really all about. So if you want to preorder the book, you can do that now at GlennBeck.com. Is it going to be on Amazon? No? Don't know? Okay. So is it Glenn Beck

LANGE: Glenn, one technical thing. If you're uploading pictures, upload the highest res that you have. And also understand that if you are uploading them that we have the rights to use them in the book.

GLENN: Jeez. What a Nazi this guy is. All right. George Lange, thank you very much, sir.

LANGE: Thanks, Glenn.

GLENN: God bless you, bye bye.

LANGE: Take care.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
