Glenn Beck: Closing in on 8/28

Learn more about the 8/28 Rally...

GLENN: Here's what we were — here's what we've been talking about off the air, and I want to share this with you. Do you have the King Malik Shabazz cracker baby? The one where he says about 8/28. We're ready to roll. Do you have that?

PAT: I will in just a second.

GLENN: He is threatening to come to 8/28, and we're getting a lot of mail from people saying, Glenn, you've asked to bring our families. Yes, I have. You are going to have to decide. What's happening with 8/28 is the Black Panthers are intentionally, and so is I believe the media, the ones that are in line with this administration. This administration doesn't have its fingerprints on any of this, as it never does. But it is, I believe, coordinated through the Center For American Progress or Van Jones or however they want to do it. This is not an isolated incident. They are threatening to come and disrupt 8/28. Well, there's no difference between these people who are threatening to kill you and those who are in Al Qaeda who are threatening to kill you. You, each of us, have a choice. I have told you before. We're entering different times. You have to know what you believe. This is — these are no longer times where you, you know, hoist a flag and fly it over your head and say, yeah, USA, USA. That's — those times are past. Those are sunshine patriot days.

The sun is behind some clouds right now. So you have to decide, what do you really believe? What is worth standing for? They are trying to depress the numbers that show up at 8/28. This is their intent. Will they show up? Will there be confrontation? Will they be confrontational? If they show up, I guarantee you they will be poking and poking and poking and trying to get someone to react. I beg that no one would. Because it's exactly what they want. Then they have a reason. Then they have an excuse.

Martin Luther King believed if you put hatred right next to those who are — have the steely resolve for the rights of all man, equal rights of all man, America will see the difference between the two and they will reject one. But the people that were in the 1960s, they lived in a different time. They've gone through a lot more than what any tea partier has gone through, what I have ever gone through in my life. They have been hardened for a while.

They also had more anger in them, I think, because they had reason to have more anger. They did it. The question is, will you or should you? I believe — I haven't seen a budget in a while but I believe the biggest expense on 8/28 — and it's in the hundreds of thousands of dollars — is security. This is the — this is the nation's capital. I will tell you that the next meeting we have, just because it's scheduled this way is with Secret Service. The best and the brightest will be there. We are unfortunately having to live in a world where we have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on security. Should you be there? That's your call. I will just ask that you again discover what you truly believe. Find out why you believe it. Find out what your place is in all of this. What is your mission? What is your duty? What is your honor? The things you are honored to do? And then do those things. If that includes standing with me shoulder to shoulder, arm in arm, locked in arms and peacefully assembling to speak our mind about God and about the truth of this nation, not about politics but about the universal truths of this nation, then I ask you to join me August 28 at the feet of another man who gave his life for universal truth. Abraham Lincoln.


Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

RESTORING HOPE: Join Glenn live from Standing Rock Ranch to restore the American covenant

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
