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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
