Will talk radio survive the year?

With all the attempts to blame Glenn, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and other conservative voices for the Arizona shootings, one starts to wonder if talk radio will survive the year. Pat asked Glenn that very question during a break, and the radio guys addressed the issue on the program.

Pat said he doesn’t think talk radio will continue after 2011. “Yeah, I mean, the way it's going.  It doesn't look like it to me.  I don't know how we do.  How do we survive the year?  You've already got Clyburn calling for the Fairness Doctrine, you've already got Al Sharpton who started last year and wants to call Rush before some Senate committee hearing,” Pat said. “I mean, they are using a situation that has absolutely nothing to do with us, without a shred of evidence that he ever listened to anybody on the right, or the left.”

Glenn added that the slow regulation of the media is the textbook definition of progressivism. “It is bit by bit, step by step, it is progress,” he said.

When the Fairness Doctrine was in place decades ago, it nearly killed talk radio. “When the Fairness Doctrine was in force in, what, the Eighties, the way they did it was you'd have a conservative in the morning, then you'd have a liberal in the midday.  Then in the afternoon there's a conservative.  Then at night there's a liberal.  And it kind of went like that on just about every station.  And so you never knew what you were going to get when you tuned in unless you knew the schedule really well,” Pat said.

Glenn said that when they start applying the Fairness Doctrine to other industries, then maybe you can come to talk radio. “When there is the Fairness Doctrine in the universities, you let me know and you come to talk radio.  When you have to have someone with the other opinion standing in front of your children, you let me know.  See, they know exactly the power.  They know exact ‑‑ they know.  And they know the power of total indoctrination.”

“And if you don't think this can happen, you're fooling yourself.  If you don't think that they're going to regulate the Internet, you're just uninformed.  And here's why:  They already did it December 21st.  They're now writing the regulations for the Internet.  And nobody seems to care.  Man has never been freer to speak his mind but yet there are so many of your friends that just think, ‘Well, this will always be this way.’”

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
