Glenn Beck: The MAP

Read it yourself:

Eight Stages of the Process of Social Movement Success

GLENN: All right. There's a couple of things that I really want to go over with you today, one of which is what we talked about last night on television and what we talked about yesterday morning here on the radio program that we're in a very delicate stage, and I've gotten a lot of tweets and a lot of e mails: Oh, Glenn Beck thinks that we're, you know, we're really, really, you know, having a struggle here and we're giving up hope. No. No, I think some are. I've heard from several people, received lots of e mails from people who said, you know what, Glenn, I'm not coming to 8/28 because, A, I'm afraid. You know. Welcome to life. There's no reason to be afraid. The security is outrageous and I think also that there's just no there's cameras everywhere. Everywhere. And there's just no way that that's going to happen. I mean unless, you know, unless Jesus comes and just splits the mountains.

The other thing that they are saying is I'm getting mail from people who say, I'm not coming because I've come to Washington before, I stood, I marched, I went to my town hall and nothing has changed. The document that I showed you yesterday on television and radio, which is MAP, a map of movement, of political movements. It was designed in the Seventies, late Seventies by a socialist, a progressive, and they were trying to stop, the federal government said we're going to have a thousand nuclear power plants by the turn of the century. This is 1977. And the movement had the the anti nuke people had a couple of successes. But when this guy, Bill Moyer, met with them, he realized how down they were and they said, we're going to give up because nothing's really changing, et cetera, et cetera. He said you're at Stage 5. He went back to his hotel and he laid out all of these stages, and I believe they're accurate. Stage 5 is the place to where you say, they're not moving, they're not paying attention, nobody in Washington is changing anything. Even though the poll numbers are with us, the press is still against us and so is Washington. Well, in the end, the nukes, how many nuclear power plants do we have? We had 67, I think, when they started. When he gave them the strategy and they felt, no, we're not and they wanted 1,000 by the end of the decade, 2000. By 2000 they had only built over a hundred. So it was a wild, wild success. Why don't we have can you imagine if we had a thousand nuclear power plants? Would we be having the problems with energy that we're having right now? We wouldn't be having these conversations. We wouldn't have to worry about coal, we wouldn't have to worry about gas. When it comes to heating and cooling our houses and everything else, we wouldn't have these problems. We probably would have hydrogen cars because the most effective way to make hydrogen is with a nuclear power plant. So the world would have been different.

Don't think that you don't make an impact. The other thing that is really critical to understand is this is the most dangerous point in any political system. Because people start to get frustrated and they say, I'm not making a difference. And when that is heard, those crazies out there say, I'll make a difference, and violence comes. This is where Bill Ayers was in 1969. This is where the Weather Underground. They were the Weathermen. Then they became the Weather Underground. They had to go underground because they became violent. That was Stage 5. We're in Stage 5 right now. That's why I ask you to go to and I ask you to take the 40 Day and 40 Night challenge. That is start saying your prayers on your knees for 40 days and 40 nights, one prayer on your knees. Let your children see you. Humble yourself before the Lord and say your prayers on your knees. Do that. That's faith. Hope comes from truth. Get all of the lies out of your life, even the lies that you have, you know, that you tell yourself. For 40 days and 40 nights promise yourself no lies, no fibs, no exaggerations, just the truth. And charity, charity starts at home. For the next 40 days and 40 nights, I want you to one night a week spend it with your children, play a game, play cards, read stories, whatever, just one night a week. Faith, hope and charity, the 40 Day, 40 Night challenge and then meet me in Washington D.C. as we change the world.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

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."
