GLENN: Okay.

Attempting to overtake the popularity of Glenn Beck's 8/28

rally, a group of about 300 liberal and progressive organizations have planned a

rally on the national mall. Is it this weekend? Yeah. It's 10‑2‑10, isn't it?

PAT: Yes, it is.

GLENN: According to two new reports, Saturday's 10‑2 march, one nation working

together, also has garnered support of President Obama's political organizing

group, as well as multiple churches. As the Hill reports, the Democratic

National Committee's Organizing For America, which is the President's,

Organizing For America, which works to support and build off Obama's policies

sent out an e‑mail blast supporting ‑‑

(Audio.)

GLENN: Can you maybe give me a second here? Thank you, Pat.

PAT: I was just making sure I have it.

GLENN: No. It's good. Usually what you should do is check that off line, but

that's what the professionals do.

STU: You talk on mike. You don't play audio when trying not to. Do we have our

roles down here?

PAT: Come on. We're all waiting for it.

GLENN: The Democratic National Committee's Organizing For America which works to

support and build off Obama's policies sent out an e‑mail blast. The message

bills the event as the biggest progressive demonstration in decades. A video

posted on OFA's website may offer a glimpse in what the event might look like,

an election rallying touting Democrats successes over the last two years while

villainizing the Republicans and here's what the President said.

OBAMA: ‑‑ all across the country and the other side is not fighting back. You've

seen special interests align with the Republican party all across the country

and they are now spending millions of dollars all across the country against

democratic candidates, running tremendously negative ads and the worst about

part about it is we don't know exactly who these groups are because of a Supreme

Court decision called citizens united.

PAT: Unbelievable.

OBAMA: You now have a situation in which special interests can get millions of

dollars in contributions from some of the wealthiest, most powerful interests in

the group.

GLENN: Like Indians.

OBAMA: They don't have to disclose who they are.

PAT: George Soros.

OBAMA: ‑‑ and so all of our candidates are getting swamped. Now, given what's at

stake, given the fact that the other side has said they want to go back to the

exact same agenda that was in place before I took office, having taxes for

millionaires and billion heirs even if it adds to our deficit, letting corporate

special interests write their own rules, because they want to go back to that

agenda, we know that we're going to have to make sure we do well in this

election and we are fighting or as candidates as strongly as you fought for me.

PAT: Because he only had a billion dollars, he only spent $1 billion and we know

where every penny came from.

GLENN: Well, we do and, you know, when he talks about, you know, you don't want

to right special interest groups just writing legislation, he knows what he's

talking about because we've seen the damage that special interest groups

bypassing Congress and just writing their own legislation ‑‑

PAT: You don't mean like the Apollo Project?

GLENN: Or citizens for American progress, none of those.

PAT: No.

GLENN: SEIU?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Not at all. OFA is not alone supporting the rally. Among those who have

decided to sponsor the rally are multiple church groups, according to the New

York Times. The march is cosponsored by the United Methodist Church, the United

Church of Christ, which is what's his name, Jeremiah Wright's church.

PAT: Jeremiah Wright.

GLENN: The National Baptist Convention and several Jewish organizations. As

people of faith, we deeply care about the issues of justice, education, and jobs

and we feel those are ‑‑ those issues facing society we have to address. This is

according to the United Methodist Church. A march like this is something that

hasn't been accomplished since Dr. King brought people together in 1963 around

issues of race, war, class, and the right to decent paying, good jobs.

PAT: The right again, the right to good jobs.

GLENN: So, we know what they're doing. They are ‑‑ they are organizing for their

version of America. They are pulling out all the stops. This is truly, truly

Astroturf. You can't get people to come to the mall and organizing something in

six weeks. You can't do it. If this ‑‑ these 300 organizations, which include

all of the labor unions, which includes gigantic churches and church

organizations, we had individual churches that decided that they wanted to, you

know, come or individual pastors, but we didn't have ‑‑ we didn't have the

United Methodist Church saying, we're are the buses, let's go, all of our

churches. We didn't have that. And we also didn't have a political message. The

message was about God. The message was the 40 day and 40 night challenge. The

message was you are better people than this.

I believe that we have done something that no one has done since Martin Luther

King, but you'll notice that they themselves now are imaging themselves as

Martin Luther King. I had to make sure that I was saying the whole time, I'm not

Martin Luther King, don't claim to be Martin Luther King. They are now claiming

to be Martin Luther King and his march. And it is all about power, money, and

politics. If there aren't 2 million people there on the mall, I would be shocked

because they know how much is at stake. They know what that crowd needs to ‑‑

photographs. They know what that crowd needs to look like.

PAT: And like you said, they've got every union, they've got every church group,

they've got the office of the presidency of the United States behind this thing.

This is ‑‑ I mean, if you can't ‑‑ you've got to get 2 million people there.

With all of this power behind them and organizing ability, they ‑‑ I mean, they

proved in 2008 they know how to organize.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Then ‑‑

GLENN: And they will. And their crowd will ‑‑ it has to be 2 million people. It

has to be 2 million people. I would have a little more confidence in 2 million

if I knew they didn't have the power of MSNBC behind them. You know, I think

once you have the power of MSNBC ‑‑

PAT: Then you diminish that to about ‑‑

GLENN: You diminish ‑‑

PAT: ‑‑ maybe 1 million. MSNBC cuts it in half.

GLENN: I'm not really sure.

PAT: I don't know. We'll see.

GLENN: So, you have this weekend the anti‑8/28 rally. We saw the pictures of the

crowd and this isn't about numbers. This is about the spirit of the crowd, what

happens, what happens on stage. How is it reviewed? How is it covered? What is

said? And I will tell you, I support their right to gather. I support their

right to stand and be heard. I support their right to let people hear and see

who they are. That's all I asked. All I asked for was we have a right to be

heard, we have a right to stand, we have a right to have people hear us. And

that's all they're doing and they have that right and we as citizens have the

responsibility to listen and then choose.

I find it interesting that Stephen Colbert, in part of the story that nobody has

covered, do you know who set that up, who set up the whole Stephen Colbert

incident in Congress and on the fields? Do you know, Stu?

STU: Only because you e‑mailed it to me this morning.

GLENN: It was the farm workers union.

STU: It's unbelievable.

GLENN: Yeah. It was the farm workers union that put this whole thing together

and had Stephen Colbert come out and work on the farm and then go to Congress.

The unions are knee‑deep in all of this and I don't know how all this shakes

out. I don't know and I don't claim to be the one who is left standing in the

end. Here's what I do claim. I believe that those who play these games at this

point, who are not honest, who are in bed with the special interests or in bed

with what America knows is wrong, they will go the way of Oprah Winfrey. A lot

of people will say, oh, Oprah cashed out and got a lot of money, yeah, she did,

but Oprah was losing to Judge Judy in the end and I believe that not because

she, you know, ate up all of her time and, you know, her 15 minutes or 1500

hours of fame was over. I believe it happened because she got involved in

politics and everything else and people didn't like what she had to say. She

forced them to choose and she got into something that wasn't her realm. Colbert

and what's his name, Stewart, are doing the same thing now. And I don't know if

these are the event that will do it to them, with you I will tell you that

Stephen Colbert, I felt bad for him because I think he was set up but he also

choose and he knew he was getting in bed with the unions and was being ‑‑ he's a

shill. That's all he is is a shill and the America people are done with it.

Everything that is establishment ‑‑ I'm going to go into this tomorrow a little

bit. Everything that is the establishment will be over. It will come to an end.

Now, it will either be a smaller government and ruling themselves or it will be

a global establishment in the end. That will be for the American people and only

the American people to decide.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
