GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Is the audio good enough to play of this Lindsey Graham?

PAT: I'm not sure. He's really sounds like somebody recorded this on a cellphone and so he's way in the background.

GLENN: Stu, can you get Kevin on the phone? Can you see if you can get Kevin on the line here. Tell me what he's saying here.

PAT: Lindsey Graham is doing, looks like a town hall meeting and people are yelling at him. Because, you know, here's a guy who was pro amnesty.

GLENN: Pro amnesty.

PAT: Voted for Sotomayor.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: He voted for the stimulus package. He's just signed on for the climate change bill. And then he claims, you know, that he's this amazing conservative and, in fact, he called you out last week on the "Well, we're going to have him be a conservative" just because you said what you said on the remember that?

GLENN: Give me this again.

PAT: Remember what he said?

STU: Important distinction here because he did not say conservative.

GLENN: Let's listen to what he says.

PAT: Yeah, because it's

GRAHAM: Frankly I don't want to go down the road of thinking our best days are behind us. We need to act decisively. People are genuinely upset with how much money we're spending up here. But at the end of the day when a person says he represents conservatism

PAT: See?

GRAHAM: And that the country's better off with Barack Obama than John McCain, that sort of ends the debate for me as

PAT: Kind of ends the debate for me when you voted for the stimulus, when you voted for amnesty, when you voted for

GLENN: For Sotomayor.

PAT: For Sotomayor now and when you voted for the climate change bill, that sort of ends it for me.

STU: I thought you were talking about the one with the Republican Party, the voice of the Republican Party which you never claimed that you wanted.

GLENN: No, no. You know what, it's MSNBC and all these others, it's the DNC that wants to make me the voice of the Republican Party because they think that that's, you know, somehow or another, you know, a bad thing for the Republicans. I don't think you can, I don't think you can do more damage to the Republican Party than the Republicans are doing to the Republican Party.

PAT: Yeah, I think he says it at the beginning.

VOICE: Are you saying that Glenn Beck is bad for America?

GRAHAM: No, I'm not saying he's bad for America. You got the freedom to watch him if you choose. He did a pretty good job on ACORN. What I am saying, he doesn't represent the Republican Party.

PAT: Got that right. Yeah, you got that right.

GLENN: And I believe that Lindsey Graham now does represent the Republican Party.

PAT: And that's kind of what the people in this gymnasium are screaming at him.

GLENN: Yes, that is the problem. So what is he do we have any of this audio here?

PAT: We do.

GLENN: Is he running for reelection or is he just trying to run for his life? Do you know?

PAT: Not sure.

STU: Didn't he just get reelected? I'm not sure.

GLENN: I have no idea.

STU: Did he? I'll try to look it up.

GLENN: That's probably why he is trying to get away with this stuff.

(Audio playing)

PAT: You can hear people yelling at him and

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Okay, stop, listen to this.

PAT: So they are going to take this party and move it forward and if you don't like it, you can leave.

GLENN: Go back. What were they shouting afterwards? What was the reaction of the crowd?

PAT: He's going to find people, he's going to find people in Maine, in Delaware and whatever and then people are yelling, then move there.

GLENN: Move there.

PAT: Then move there.

GLENN: And we're going to take this party forward.

PAT: And if you don't like it

GLENN: And if you don't like it, leave, okay? Let me hear the rest, where the crowd says after he says that.

(Audio plays)

GLENN: They already have. Listen to that. See, stop. This is the problem with the Republican Party. They are playing they are Democrat Light. Did you not learn from history and FDR? Lindsey Graham is doing exactly the same thing that the Republicans did well, me, too. Me, too, me, too. Well, if we don't move, they are going to run over us. Me, too, me, too, I can do that; I just won't do as much. What, are you out of your mind, Lindsey Graham? See, this is the thing. Listen to the arrogance. We talk about the arrogance of the Barack Obama administration. Listen to the arrogance of Lindsey Graham: And if you don't like it, you can leave. Well, Lindsey, I think they have. I think they have. He says they're not going to become the party of angry white men. Oh, well, that's not too racist. What do you mean you are not going to be the party of angry white men? Do you know why the white men, white women, black men, black women, Hispanics, doesn't matter, do you know why Americans are angry? Because of attitudes like yours! If you don't like it, you can leave. Excuse me? Who works for who? You work for me, you little weasel. I've been paying your stinkin' salary! I have been paying I'm paying for your pension until the day you die! Are you excuse me? I want to say, "Are you talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me?"

STU: And when you think about the list that Pat just, you know, went through of all these policies, policy after policy after policy, you have to ask the question, if you are going to be an opposition party of Lindsey Graham, why bother having an opposition party?

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: It's just a pain, it's just a pain to go ahead with it.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Why is the R and the D? It's too many letters.

GLENN: Let's take one in between.

Kevin, Lindsey Graham, could we find a bookstore down

STU: Oh, boy.

GLENN: I'm just sayin'. Maybe in his, in the heart of his state that maybe has a lot of land around it where maybe I could sign some books, go down there and sign some books and maybe exercise my freedom of speech for, like, an hour, about him? Do you think maybe you could see if there's a bookstore that would be interested in hosting us for that event.

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."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
