GLENN: Now, I want you to hear this audio. This is a mother crying about her son

PAT: Two of them. Two of them.

GLENN: It's sad. Now it's a double whammy. Now it's twice as sad.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Two children that did not have access to broadband. Here it is.

LOCKLEAR: My name is Rhonda Locklear. I'm from Pembroke, and I'm a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina.

PAT: Did you get that? She's a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina.

GLENN: I love the Lumbee tribe.

LOCKLEAR: I have two children and like any mother, I want the best for my boys.

PAT: Like any mother.

GLENN: Don't make fun of her.

PAT: I'm sorry.

LOCKLEAR: Jacob, my oldest, is a transfer student to UNC Pembroke and Isaac is in the eighth grade at Pembroke middle school. Like most families across the state who either don't have access to high speed Internet or who can't afford it, we were stuck with dial up service.

GLENN: Oh, no! Stop it!

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: No, no!

PAT: Stuck with this, until just two months ago!

GLENN: No, I won't

PAT: Dial up!

GLENN: I will not hear.

PAT: Dial up!

GLENN: I will not hear of

PAT: In this country!

GLENN: In the richest country in the world!

PAT: Best, neatest, most amazing, not the best but the

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: Neatest?

GLENN: No, one that has made so many terrible mistakes.

PAT: Mostly crappy, technologically superior, though.

GLENN: Not superior.

PAT: Not superior?

GLENN: Not superior.

PAT: To anyone wet.

GLENN: Only superior because we rape the rest of the world.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: But we don't we have somebody that has dial up. Hang on. It gets worse.

PAT: In this country.

GLENN: No, it goes no, listen.

PAT: Hang on.

LOCKLEAR: I feel that this has put my family, my sons in particular

PAT: Get this.

LOCKLEAR: at a severe disadvantage.

STU: No, no.

LOCKLEAR: Isaac depends on the Internet to complete his assignments for school. He often uses the internet to work on reports or often at times to just do research.

STU: Research, that's it!

LOCKLEAR: I watch him struggle with the dial up service and observed him get frustrated.

GLENN: Stop, stop! I watch him struggle with the dial up service!

PAT: As he tries to download the pages. Come on!

GLENN: I can't... take it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: Can I tell you something?

GLENN: Where is my grandfather?

PAT: You and I were together when we struggled with the pages downloading when we had 14.4 modem? Remember that?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: (Making staticy noises). And at that radio station, I think AOL was about the only thing going and you would start loading a page and you'd leave and you'd come back in 15 minutes when it's done.

GLENN: Now imagine, imagine trying to do

PAT: Imagine it now trying to do a project.

GLENN: Why are you making fun of her?

PAT: I'm not.

GLENN: Yes, you are.

PAT: I'm not.

GLENN: Yes, you are.

PAT: I'm trying to empathize with her. I can't even empathize.

STU: I can't even tell when it's the audio or when it's him, it's so

GLENN: I'm trying to just wonder where our grandparents went to. Did where our grandparents go?

STU: Well, they had DSL.

GLENN: No, no. No, no.

PAT: We're in library deserts now.

STU: At T3.

GLENN: I mean where did our grandparents go and they left us without a boot in the ass. Because there's a few people that need some of those boots in their ass. And you know what? Quite honestly she may be one of them.

PAT: May? I'm sorry. Did I hear the word "May" come out of your mouth?

GLENN: I mean, can you imagine? Can you imagine if you would have gone at least maybe my grandfather was different. If I would have gone to my grandfather and said, grandpa, I'm just struggling with this dial up service.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: He would have said

PAT: A guy who grew up in the Depression.

GLENN: "Get the hell away from me and go do your homework." That's what he would have said.

PAT: Pick up an encyclopedia. There are things called books.

GLENN: How about a library? I don't know how far she is from a library but how about a library?

PAT: She might be in a library desert.

STU: Or an Internet cafe desert.

PAT: Right.

STU: She could easily in an Internet cafe and you are making fun of her.

PAT: She could easily be in an Internet cafe desert.

GLENN: I don't think any of this is necessary.

PAT: You want to hear the rest?

GLENN: Yes, go ahead.

PAT: It's good. It will get even more horrific.

LOCKLEAR: Because he cannot move around on the Web like he likes.

GLENN: No, not like he likes.

STU: He likes to go around on the Web quickly and he could not do that.

PAT: He could not surf the porn sites that he likes to surf.

LOCKLEAR: Seemingly easy assignments took him hours to complete.

GLENN: Hours.

STU: Pictures of Megan Fox took him hours to download.

PAT: One naked lady took him an hour and a half to have it load on the Web.

GLENN: I don't think this is necessary.

LOCKLEAR: It is hard to watch. Isaac got very upset.

PAT: When all he could see was her forehead.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

PAT: And he was waiting and waiting for the chestal area to appear.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: And it took hours at a time for that Web to download it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: I wept as I watched him try to drool as those pictures would not load onto that page. I love it when people can make

GLENN: Do not, please

PAT: five syllables out of a monosyllabic work.

GLENN: Do not encourage him. This is not helpful.

STU: You are right. I'm sorry.

GLENN: I'm putting it

PAT: Once it started loading her feet from the bottom up and he waited four and a half days until the knees appeared. By the time it got to her hips, he realized she was in a miniskirt and he was so upset, he wept as I did as well.

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."
