This is a rush transcript from "Glenn Beck," September 1, 2010. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GLENN BECK, HOST: Show me your friends and I will show you your future. That is a phrase that scares the heck out of me when I think about our president. Because as we have demonstrated on this program and everyone else seems to dismiss, all the people around our president come from the same creepy circle of radical '60 types.

The latest, which is now the lead story on the new Web site that I have started, it's a news and information Web site: TheBlaze.com. I'll tell you more about this later. But basically, I hired some journalists because there are stories I don't have enough broadcast hours in a day to cover and somebody has got to cover them.

Please, check out TheBlaze.com and make it one of your favorites for a couple of weeks. If it's not doing the job, let us know. If we don't get it right, move on with your life — TheBlaze.com.

Anyway, the lead story was Dolores Huerta. Now, she works for the Hilda Solis and the Department of Labor's We Can Help program. What's that? Well, thankfully, the Department of Labor has put together a handy jingle just so you know.

Here it is:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

NARRATOR: We can help! We'll get what you you're due!

HILDA SOLIS, U.S. SECRETARY OF LABOR: You work hard and you have the right to be paid fairly. I'm U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and it is a serious problem when workers in this country are not being paid every cent they earn.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: Legally or illegally.

It's a good thing that catchy tune was there. I'm glad my hard-earned tax dollars and yours went to that.

Anyway, Dolores Huerta, she is working on this great program. She's all over the Web site. She's a big civil rights activist. She's got a great resume. She was the honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America, which I know I want somebody who is honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America working in the Labor Department — who believes this. Ready? "The alternative to capitalism is democratic socialism." Yes.

She also writes for The Huffington Post. She is a labor leader — legendary. She worked with Cesar Chavez who — she also had the FBI investigate for being a communist. It's good stuff. Cesar Chavez was investigated by the — and she's right — she's right there, it's great.

So, to have her there at the labor — the Department of Labor helping them on things is really good. But it actually might be better than what she was doing before. What was she doing before? The lady who said the alternative to capitalism is democratic socialism? Yes. Indoctrinating our children.

Here is the story from The Blaze: Here she is talking to high school students. Watch:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

DOLORES HUERTA: The average pay of CEO of a Fortune 500 company is $3 million to $9 million a year. What are you going to do with all that money, right? I don't care how much money you make. You can only eat three meals a day, you know? You can only wear one suit of clothes a day, you know?

So, the idea a lot isn't wrong as long as use it for the people, like what Hugo Chavez is doing in Venezuela.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

BECK: OK. This is in Tucson at a high school she said this.

I believe the president has said almost those very same words, didn't he? Didn't he in a speech say, I don't care how much you make, there's nothing wrong, I mean, how much can you eat? And she's here praising Hugo — which kind of makes this picture a little easier to understand, no?

But I digress. We were talking about how wonderful Dolores is with the kids:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

HUERTA: They have 20,000 Cuban doctors that are coming to Venezuela. They are setting up these neighborhoods with factories and jobs for the people and the medical clinics and their co-op right there in every single neighborhood in Venezuela.

Now, we are the richest country in the world, right? So, why can't we do that here in the United States?

(END AUDIO CLIP)

BECK: That is a good question, Dolores. Why can't we be a good — as good as Cuba or Venezuela? You know, while the kids ponder that doozy, why not remind them, Dolores, of your theme for the day? And here it is:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

HUERTA: Our tema, our theme will be: Republicans hate Latinos, OK? Republicans hate Latinos.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

BECK: Hmm, what a message of unity and hope. If only we could have been that unifying at 8/28 and not distorting Dr. King's message. Dolores really has it down. Dr. King would be proud of her, I guess.

So, how did she get to those schools in the first place? Well, because of this guy, congressman from Arizona. He brought her in to speak.

Do we have his picture? There he is. Yes. He brought her in to speak. Yes.

Raul is close with Dolores — so close, in fact, that he went to her 80th birthday party recently back on August 13th. Oh, it was a great party. Everyone was there: Hilda Solis from the Labor Department, Martin Sheen, Jodie Evans from Code Pink — she was involved with Bill Ayers' wife, too, on the flotilla thing. Oh, and Carlos Santana.

Now, there is one other person that was there. I mean, would any party really be complete without Van Jones? Oh, yes. And there was a taped tribute from President Obama, himself. That's great.

A socialist, leader of the Democratic Socialist Party in the Labor department, who is formally indoctrinating our kids on the wonders of Hugo Chavez and Cuba, and the president is sending her birthday message and Van Jones and everybody else is there — and telling our kids that Republicans hate Latinos.

But forget all about that. Just seeing the catchy Department of Labor jingle, and everything is going to be OK. Come on. Altogether, kids:

NARRATOR: You've got rights! We can help!

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: You have rights. They can help.
