GLENN: Okay. Now, I saw the movie and I went with a friend of mine. We went with our wives, and it's the same friend that we went a couple of weeks ago to another movie, New Moon. And I said halfway through New Moon

PAT: You've got to be kidding me. You went to New Moon?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: I don't remember you telling this story.

GLENN: Of course not.

PAT: You went to New Moon?

GLENN: I went to New Moon. My wife is a big New Moon fan, my daughters are a big New Moon fan. I actually brought my daughter this weekend to New Moon. So I've seen it twice. I wanted to claw my eyes out. I said to halfway through I said to my friend, "I think we need to check each other's man cards. I don't think we can carry..."

STU: Well, it is, I've heard it's littered with lots of shirtless men.

GLENN: It's ridiculous. It was ridiculous.

STU: Lots of abs, I would say. Is that true?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Would you say that's accurate? Would you say that's why you went?

GLENN: Well, not the first time. So the my daughter was like, "Dad." Because I was on the Blackberry the whole time saying, "Yeah, this is a good part, I saw it, he takes his shirt off." But anyway, I saw a... whew. After admitting to New Moon. I saw the Sandra Bullock movie this weekend. Yes, there, I said it, okay? I saw the Sandra Bullock movie.

PAT: Blind Side? Now, I want to see that.

GLENN: It was great.

STU: I saw it as well.

PAT: A true football story behind it. There's nothing shameful about that.

GLENN: Really?

STU: It's sports. It's okay.

PAT: It's sports.

GLENN: Okay, all right, yeah!

PAT: You can get your man card back for that.

GLENN: Thank you! We went to the movie and we were walking in and I said, this is Sandra Bullock. If this isn't good, man, we are definitely, we might as well just kiss each other now. And so we did because we didn't think that it was

STU: Just preparation. You always say be prepared. You always say be prepared.

GLENN: So went and I really, really liked it. I thought it was a great movie. It's one of those movies that you walk out really uplifted and I mean, the reason why I thought of it was because of the Forever Strong movie. That's the kind of movie that Forever Strong is, where you just walk out feeling good.

STU: Yeah. Blind Side was really good.

GLENN: You saw it?

STU: I read the book, too. It's the story of Michael Orr who is a guy in

PAT: Plays for the Ravens now.

STU: Ravens now. But yeah, they did actually a pretty good job with it. It was interesting because, you know, if I'm going to pick it apart from the right wing talk show host perspective, there's a few, like, there's a couple of George Bush jokes in there, there's a couple of instances where they are pointing out that, you know, her friend because she's hard core rightwing Christian conservative, like this family that did this.

GLENN: I love her.

STU: But all of her friends were like racists and all this other stuff. But the

GLENN: She's in Memphis. You expect some older women down South, not I mean, a tableful but you will expect that there are some, you know, people that are like, "Well, I don't know now." You know, there are

STU: Sure.

PAT: Although I lived down South for eight years. I didn't encounter any of those people.

GLENN: There's a difference between

PAT: None!

GLENN: There's a difference between the Old South and Texas.

STU: Well, but there's of course there's obviously racists everywhere.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Yeah, and there's white racists, there's black racists.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: I mean, living down South I saw black racism as well.

STU: But, like, the fact that they, like, find a way to work in a George Bush joke and do a story line that is literally hard core rightwing conservative saving a young black man who had absolutely no family, no life and rescuing from the most, the worst parts of society.

GLENN: From a rightwing family.

STU: Just, bringing them into their home for absolutely no reason other than they just cared about him.

GLENN: I laughed harder at this line than I think I've laughed at any other line, ever! Because it was finally, it was a good line on our side. And that was, "Did you ever think that we'd have a black son before we knew a Democrat?"

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: I mean, I laughed hard at that.

STU: Yeah. No, it was well done, though. And they stayed very true to the story in the book and, you know, it's a good heartwarming thing for the Hal days, I think. It's a good way to go.

GLENN: Oh, it's great.

PAT: Have you guys seen

GLENN: Because I didn't know the story at all. I went into the movie going, is this a true story, I think this is a true story, I don't know who this guy is because I'm not a sports fan. So I didn't know, you know, who this guy was at all. And when I saw it turn from the NCAA, NCAA?

STU: Good job, good job.

GLENN: Thank you. I was so disgusted, so disgusted. And I didn't know how it ended. And I thought, oh, you've got to be kidding me. Did they turn this guy around? You know, how much of that is real life? I thought, okay, are they going to have a hap they have got to have a happy ending now, what's the real story, et cetera, et cetera. Because this family was totally innocent. I mean, they were just

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Out of the goodness of their heart. Have you heard interviews with the family?

STU: Hmmm. No. I mean, they had a lot of quotes from them in the book and stuff when they were talking about it.

GLENN: Well, they're white and Christian and conservative; they must love us! Let's see if we can get, let's see if we can get them on the air.

STU: Yeah, great.

GLENN: I'd love to talk, especially her. I mean, I don't know if I don't know about anybody else, but I loved I read a review beforehand and it said, you know, it's the same old Sandra Bullock. I didn't think so at all.

STU: No, she did a good job.

GLENN: I thought she did a great job. And I loved I mean, if that's the way the woman really is, I love that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I thought she was great.

STU: Yeah. No, it's shocking to I think Hollywood. I don't know how they made that movie. I guess just because it was a popular book beforehand. But conservatives actually care about other people.

GLENN: No, no, no.

STU: That are poor and minorities. I mean, what are the odds?

GLENN: Look, look, look, you can be born with three eyes, too. It happens once in a while. It happens.

STU: So just a one in a billion case.

GLENN: Yeah, that's a conservative mutant clearly. I just thought it was a fantastic story that, I love the scene where she's laying in bed and she's smiling. She says, I'm happy. Shows where happiness really comes from, doing the right thing and serving others. It's fantastic.

 

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."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
