GLENN: Let me go to Kirk who is -- who wants to be our couple of the year contestant. We have Kirk on the phone? Kirk, how are you, sir?

CALLER: Well, I'm about six feet underneath the doghouse right now.

GLENN: What happened on Valentine's? Why did you forget your wife, you know, Valentine's Day?

CALLER: Well, you know, Valentine's Day I was -- I went north to go snowmobiling and just totally didn't even pay attention to the day. You know, I lost track of days. I know you --

GLENN: I said slugs.

CALLER: All these advertisements, all this stuff. And I'm like, gee, I've got to do that, I've got to do that, oh, yeah, I've got to do that.

GLENN: I told you!

CALLER: And I never did it. And, you know, then I went up north and went snowmobiling with my buddy and, yeah, this is not good.

GLENN: Now, I just filled out a form letter for you. Your wife's name is Carolyn?

CALLER: Yes, it is.

GLENN: How angry was she?

CALLER: Well, you know, we really didn't speak a whole lot when I came home.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

CALLER: I just, I got home kind of late and she just was like, well, how was your weekend. And I'm like, well, hardly there was hardly any snow up there.

STU: Glenn, you should know, too, we have to get to Carolyn and also that Kirk forgot a birthday as well recently. So he's in the major, major doghouse.

GLENN: Okay, listen. Listen to me. You better send -- where are you sending her? Where are you taking her to dinner?

CALLER: I'd like to go to Gilbert's up in Lake Geneva.

GLENN: Is it expensive?

CALLER: Yes, it is.

GLENN: Really expensive, like make your eyes bleed expensive?

CALLER: Yeah, it's what gets the country out of recession, it's so expensive.

GLENN: I hope you bleed all over the table when you're doing this, you forget your wife's birthday and Valentine's Day. Okay, you ready?

STU: How many seconds, Glenn?

GLENN: Let me give him -- he forgot a birthday, too. Eight seconds. Do you know how to do this, Kirk?

CALLER: Yeah, I was listening to one of the other former.

GLENN: I'm going to say, do you have anything else to say? And you say, yes, Carolyn. Then you count to eight slowly, Carolyn, then you count to eight, "I love you." You got it?

CALLER: Jeez, I hope I can do this.

GLENN: You better do it.

CALLER: I'm going to do it. I mean, I'm gonna. I have to.

GLENN: Here we go. Let's go ahead and start the introduction, put her on hold so she can hear the show. And that's coming up and today's going to be sunny and 76 degrees.

VOICE: And now it's the contest a year in the making, it's Glenn Beck's quest to find America's ultimate couple of love. The essays have been written, the heartfelt words have been read and the winner has been selected. So now to introduce the country's most passionate pair, here's the love god himself, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Well, here we are on the program and we were supposed to do this on Friday but as you know if you are a regular listener to the program, you know what happened to me and I broke my leg and wasn't able to be here on Friday. So we had to postpone and Stu called our winner and told him not to reveal it to his wife and he is on the phone with us now. Hello, Kirk, how are you?

CALLER: Well, I'm okay.

GLENN: You were in trouble this weekend?

CALLER: I believe so, I believe so, yeah.

GLENN: But does she know? Did you give her any indication that this was happening?

CALLER: No, no, sir.

GLENN: Wow, I'm sorry, Kirk. I just had an accident. I was out repairing the roof and it's a long story, but sorry about that. So let me get Carolyn on the phone. Is she with us?

CALLER: I'm here.

GLENN: Hi, Carolyn, how are you?

CALLER: I'm good, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: I'm good. I have to apologize. Are you a listener to this show?

CALLER: Yes, actually. Kirk and I actually have breakfast together every morning and listen to you just first thing.

GLENN: Really?

CALLER: Uh-huh.

GLENN: This should be great then. So you're both listeners to the program and Carolyn, what happened this weekend?

CALLER: You know, it's funny because I'm kind of in the same boat as you because you and I actually share the same birthday and then Valentine's Day came and went and so did my birthday and absolutely nothing. Kirk actually went snowmobiling this weekend.

GLENN: You know what, Carolyn, I have to be honest with you. There's -- you know, we do this couple of the year contest every year, and I've --

CALLER: What?

GLENN: I've never, ever come to the point to where I have to tell someone the truth.

STU: Yeah, the truth.

GLENN: But I have to tell you the truth.

STU: Your husband --

GLENN: Because I can't -- you sound like a wonderful woman and you're a listener and you sound great. Kirk called to have me cover his ass for Saturday, and I'm just not ready to do it.

CALLER: Oh, no.

GLENN: I'm just not willing to do it.

STU: Glenn.

CALLER: Oh, no.

STU: You are totally breaking the trust of the audience.

CALLER: Oh, no.

GLENN: What? By what, lying? By lying to Carolyn who listens to the program. She trusts me. I mean, look, you don't know me, that's fine, whatever, I'll help out a listener.

CALLER: You go the way of the girl. I get how this works.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

STU: This is a total sellout.

GLENN: What did you say, Carolyn?

CALLER: I'm surprised.

GLENN: You're surprised what? At Kirk or at me?

CALLER: I don't know. I don't know what to think.

GLENN: Listen, here's the thing. Your husband got busy last week. He forgot. He forgot. That's what happened. He went snowmobiling.

CALLER: The water heater.

GLENN: That's what guys do. We forgot. You know what I mean? We just move on with our life. So he forgot. Then he called me. He wanted me, because I do a contest where I covered for schlubs because I'm a schlub, too. But then I get you on the phone. I can't do it. I can't do it to you. You sound nice. So I can't cover. Now here's what he's going to do. He's going to take you out to Gilbert's.

CALLER: Oh.

GLENN: He says that's a really nice place. Is it?

CALLER: It is. It's actually where we got married.

GLENN: I want you to order the most expensive thing on the menu.

CALLER: Really?

GLENN: Yeah. Not on me. On him. I want you to eat -- I want you to -- and I don't even want you to eat it all. I want you to have like -- I want you to have surf and turf and ask for extra, extra surf. And then don't even eat it all. And when he says, are you going to eat that, say... no, and neither are you.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: Now Kirk?

CALLER: Yeah. Yes?

GLENN: I want you at the referral box to use my name Glenn Beck at checkout. That's Legalzoom.com.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

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."
