Glenn: I would just like to turn down the lights a little bit and get a little eco Barry White, because I want to help you. If you're like me and you're just a little sick of the eco green madness, like the Poland Springs water that just ‑‑ the Poland Springs water bottles will no longer stand up because they're so damn cheap because they're shipping water from Fijo or some places halfway around the world. They're going to put it in a little cheap little bottle. So, once it gets to Fiji ‑‑ once it's been in Fiji and brought over to the airport and then put on a giant 747 and brought over here to the United States and then put into plastic bottles, oh, yeah, and put in a cheap plastic bottle and then they put those cheap plastic bottles into trucks an then drive it to the store and then you get in your SUV and you go and you drive and pick up that Fiji water and you put it into a big plastic or paper bag, which is bad for the environment, no water which way you look at it, then you bring it into the house that's heated to a comfortable 71 degrees and then you come on in and you open up that Fiji water and then, because it's in a cheap bottle, it spills and all that water is wasted. Yeah. All right. So, here's the thing. Here's the thing. Here's what I'd like to do. And this idea comes from Mr. Walt Disney himself. I don't know if you know, Epcot is experimental prototype city of tomorrow and that's what it was supposed to be. He said it was the greatest work of his life. Unfortunately, they turned it into an amusement park, but what it was supposed to be was an experimental prototype city of tomorrow. So, I think we take all these great progressive ideas and what we do is we put people into the prototype city of tomorrow. We take perfectly healthy people, mentally sound, not green freaks, not anti‑green freaks, just perfectly sound, healthy Americans, and we put them into that experimental prototype city of tomorrow, where they have their water bottles that won't stand up anymore, their electricity in their home, their temperature in their home is controlled by someone else. So, if they're cold, well, it's too bad. If it's a really hot day, it's too bad. You have your kids running around. Of course, you can't have any snacks, can't have any chips, can't have any candy. No soda. No, no, but you'd say, let's have the kids go outside and play, they would say, sure, just as long as it's not tag or kick ball or anything where the kids could get hurt, but let's keep them thin. So, have them go outside and stand. Yeah. And when they get really hot, have them drink some of the water. They'll have to lap it up off the floor because the Fiji bottle is no longer made by real plastic and it spilled all over the floor and you don't want that to go to waste. So, the kids will, after a hard day of standing outside, will come on in and lap that Fiji water off the floor. And, of course, no one will have any snack. It will be great. And when you do have dinner, it will be ‑‑ well, it will be something that didn't have fur or eyes, of course. Meat is, of course, a no‑no. We'll all have salad, low salt, lowfat salad, and then we'll all gather together in our living room and we'll watch politically correct television on a very small, environmentally friendly screen. No one will smoke. Most likely soon no one will drink, either. Remember, it was the progressives that brought us prohibition in the first place. Oh, and let's see how happy the Americans are in their experimental prototype city of tomorrow. I would like to see any of these people actually live in that world.

Pat: The kids will have something to do. They can go outside and main line heroin because Mayor Bloomberg is trying to make that easier.

Glenn: Progressive Mayor Bloomberg.

Pat: No salt, no trans fats, and don't you touch a blueberry muffin. But let me help you ‑‑ if you're going to main line heroin, let me show you how to do it safely and I'm going to put out a pamphlet to show you that you need to jump up and down before you stick the needle in your arm so that your veins stick out.

Stu: Is that what I've been doing wrong?

Pat: Yes.

Glenn: Do you know what the last sign of the Miamar Republic was? What did they do right before the damn thing collapsed economically?

Pat: Shot up heroin?

Glenn: Pretty much.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: They pushed everything that was bad for you. So, alcohol, drugs, prostitution, everything, keep the masses opiated, keep them ‑‑ keep them as drunk and as drugged as we possibly can get them because that way we'll buy more time. When the central bankers all got together with the government and they said, if we stop printing this money, it means massive bad stuff and they said, well, okay. Well, then maybe something will happen, something will come along and change our fate here and so they drugged ‑‑ they dragged that fate out as long as they could and eventually they had to drug people to be able to keep it going for awhile.

Stu: Yeah. But the results of those policies were just an economic collapse in Hitler coming to power.

Glenn: But other than that, nothing bad happened. Nothing at all bad happened. No salt but heroin for everybody.

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.
