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.
