Everyone should take notice of Google’s decision to fire a software engineer for trying to offer input on the company’s diversity programs. Our society is quickly making it risky to have an opinion – and big corporations controlling our information pose a threat to free thought.
On Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck warned that the tech industry’s influence is growing in dangerous ways.
“We’re going to be controlled by four corporations,” Glenn said, listing Facebook, Google, Apple and Amazon. “How are you going to fight the person who has the keys to the library?” he asked.
Google is emphasizing “diversity,” but the company is ultimately preaching victimhood by telling women that they should feel oppressed and that they can’t do anything on their own.
“You’re so stupid you don’t even know you’re oppressed,” Glenn paraphrased. “Without us, you’ll never make it.”

GLENN: So because of a fear of leaks, Google has cancelled it’s all hands-on meeting over the engineering fiasco. What is happening in tech? What is happening in Silicon Valley?
Jeffy, did you look up — did you look up Abraham Lincoln for me today? Did you Google him? Can you bring that over to me? I want to see, what does Google say about Abraham Lincoln. I want everybody to Google right now “Abraham Lincoln.” What does Google say about Abraham Lincoln?
Now, of course, they’re going to give you the whitehouse.gov and the Wikipedia page. But over on the right, you’ll see Abraham Lincoln, 16th president. Do you see that? This is the information provided by Google.
Abraham Lincoln was the American politician, lawyer, who served as the 16th president of the United States from March 1861, assassination 1865. Born February 12th, 1809. Height, 6-4. Assassinated, April 15th. Party, the National Union Party. Wait. What? What?
GLENN: Huh? The National Union Party. I’ve not heard of the National Union Party.
You want to know the effects of Google, there it is.
GLENN: There it is.
Google is the portal for all information. When Google decides we’re going to change that information, it’s changed. And who are they — who are your kids going to believe? You or Google?
GLENN: When I saw that yesterday, I thought, “There is no more important thing than the preservation of the documents that we are preserving right now at Mercury One. There is nothing more important.”
You want to talk about clay pots. You remember 12, 15 years ago, I started hearing in my prayers, “clay pots.” When it comes to history, clay pots. And I wondered, is it for our children? And the answer is yes. Is it for the preservation of those documents, like the clay pots, to me, refer to the Dead Sea Scrolls?
Once the Nicene Creed was adopted and everybody said, “This is Christology, this is what the Bible says, and nothing more,” the Dead Sea Scrolls became very important. Quick, roll up everything you have and put them in clay pots and bury them deep in caves where no one will find them because they’re all going to be destroyed. Because the early church wanted no dissent. And the way you have — you have to destroy the documents.
That has never become more important than education for our children so they know it. But they have to know it with the actual documents. Because I’m sorry. I’ve never heard of the National Union Party. Can somebody tell me — I’m going to Google — I’m just going to click on it. National Union Party.
PAT: Yeah, it’s the Republican Party. It’s what they called themselves during that election. Yeah, it’s the Republican Party.
GLENN: Yeah, the name used by the Republican Party.
Now, how many are — how many are going to say the National Union Party?
GLENN: So you know, correct. Correct. I’ve never heard it referred to as that.
PAT: I haven’t either.
GLENN: So I guess it’s correct. Uh-huh.
Or is it one of those facts that most people — because they don’t do their own homework. They’ll look down here, oh, Abraham Lincoln was not a Republican. He was not a Republican. The Republicans took over after Abraham Lincoln. That’s exactly what’s coming. That’s exactly what’s coming.
And you know who’s going to do it? Not the stupid people. But the people who are in direct control of our universities. And? The people who control the portal of information.
Google should have every Libertarian, every classic liberal, and, quite honestly, every liberal, running for the hills.
They should be — you want to talk about a takeover of a corporation and making the United States into just one giant corporation, I’ll tell you, it’s the circle. It’s Apple. It’s Google. It’s — what’s the — it’s Amazon.
We’re going to be controlled by four corporations. I know. That sounds like a conspiracy theory.
How are you going to fight the person who has the keys to the library? If the librarian says to your student, “The Road to Serfdom, that doesn’t exist.” Oh, you’re thinking of the Road to Serfdom. The Road to Serfdom, that was, a nickname for Adam Smith’s book Wealth of Nations because it actually just turns you into a slave. No, we don’t actually have a copy of Wealth of Nations. It was discredited a long time ago. But I have some papers here that you can read about it. How hard is that?
Now, I’m obviously taking that to the nth degree. But may I just say that the nth degree has passed a long time ago. The nth degree has — when I’m not leading the show with, did you see the picture of Chelsea Manning in the swimsuit on the beach?
PAT: And, no, fortunately I did not.
GLENN: Oh, no. In Vanity Fair, where they called her “a stunning American beauty.”
Oh, my gosh.
JEFFY: I think you would agree, Pat.
PAT: You think so?
JEFFY: I think so, yeah.
GLENN: I mean, a stunning American traitor, sure. A stunning American beauty? Go ahead. Go to GlennBeck.com. The picture is up there.
STU: No thanks. No thank you.
GLENN: What the hell is this?
PAT: I have to see it.
GLENN: So don’t tell me that anything is insane anymore. We’re there. We’re there.
We’re so far over the cliff — and, by the way, I actually — when I saw that last night, I thought, “I’ve got to call Don. I’ve got to call Don Imus.”
STU: Terrible instinct on —
GLENN: Yeah, no. No, no, no. That was my next thought: I wonder if Don would even say anything anymore. I wonder what the blowback would be for me to put Don Imus on, who says, “American beauty?” Fill in the rest of the Don Imus monologue.
You can’t have that opinion anymore. Let me go back to Google for a second. You go back to Google, and you look at what — why are women upset? Women are upset because, quite honestly, their new slave owners, the progressive movement, is telling them they’re nothing without them.
Without this education, without us clearing the path, you don’t — you’re so stupid, you don’t even know you’re oppressed. You’re so stupid, that without us, you’ll never make it.
