Glenn was backstage with Bono?

Glenn’s glowing review of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has been all over the news since yesterday’s radio show, and Glenn had more to say this morning. Not only did Glenn go back to the show last night, but he got to hang out with U2 frontman – and one of Stu’s favorite musicians – Bono!

Glenn took some friends to the show last night, and when they arrived he ran into some of the producers. The producers thanked Glenn for his kind review , which has now been picked up by Entertainment Weekly and the New York Times, and Glenn let them know that he honestly feels that they deserve a much better review than his. Glenn believes the show is “the eighth wonder of the world.”

About halfway through the show Glenn got a text message that said, “Would you like to see Bono after the show?”

Glenn joked, “I just text back and went, ‘that's the way I roll. ‘”

So much like the time when Glenn met Albert Pujols (picture to the left), he got to meet another famous person who he had no business meeting.

Pat joked, “Where the guy has no clue who Albert Pujols is.  Here's the greatest baseball player on the planet, he doesn't know his name, he couldn't tell you what team he's on, he couldn't tell you what he does and he's the one who gets the autograph signed?”

Stu added, “It would have been nice to maybe have someone who actually has, I don't know, purchased something that they produced to meet them.”

Glenn has no idea how things like this happen to him. When he showed the text to his wife she laughed and just said their life is like some weird movie.

Glenn described his actual meeting with Bono:

"So anyway, we went downstairs and somebody is facing me and Julie Taymor comes up and she was the one who did the Lion King and she's now done this.  Brilliant.  The producer is there.  Brilliant.  The guy who did the set is there.  Brilliant.  All of them, just brilliant.  And the guy standing with me, he's facing me and he's like, behind you.  And so I kind of start to turn and there's Bono.  And he's just kind of like hanging out, just listening to what we were talking about.  And I said, hey.”

At first Glenn figured Bono had no idea who he was, but Bono was quick to thank Glenn for his kind words on radio. Glenn told the story, “And [Bono] said, some of us don't need to have good reviews, he said, but there are people that have given up so much of their life and are the beginning and, you know, a good review means everything to them because they're at the beginning of their career.  And he said, I can't tell you how much that meant.”

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
