The real violent rhetoric

The past week has sparked a lot of discussion about violent rhetoric in the media. Some have even suggested a return to the Fairness Doctrine, which would spell the end of talk radio, and now American citizens are being investigated for simply asking their congressmen questions.

Glenn read the news, “Clay Bowler has become active in politics.  Starting last year he didn't support Billy Long, the Democrat running for congress in his Missouri district.  So he started a website.  He began attending campaign events.  He even started asking the candidate tough questions.  But when Long eventually won, Bowler and his website ‘Long is Wrong’ went away.  So when the FBI showed up at his door recently saying he was perceived to be making threats to the congressman, he was shocked.  Bowler said, ‘I'm not a threat to Billy Long.  I find whole thought funny because I'm such an advocate for constitutional rights, I would never do anything that would put in jeopardy those constitutional rights like the Second Amendment.’  Bowler admitted he confronted Long in the past but never threatened him.  He said ‘I never, ever, ever threatened him’.  Bowler showed KSRP the worst of his confrontations, a YouTube video showing him walking with Long asking him questions, more of a journalistic inquiry than a threatening tirade.”

Glenn then told the story of the Fairness Doctrine, which started and then forties and went away in the late eighties.  “So the late Forties, I know at least we had Truman shot, or at least shot at and almost killed.  It was just by the grace of God that Truman wasn't assassinated.  We had JFK, Malcolm X, MLK, RFK, George Wallace, Gerald Ford, Vernon Jordan, John Lennon, Ronald Reagan and then the Fairness Doctrine went away.  Since the Fairness Doctrine ended, literally the only one we can find is Gabrielle Giffords.”

Glenn told the story of the violent rhetoric being aimed at Sarah Palin. “Have you seen the drawings and the posters of Sarah Palin?  They're in San Francisco.  There is a group SFist that is putting out posters of Sarah Palin, and it's Sarah Palin with her mouth open and flames all around her.  And I'm trying to remember the exact slogan.  We'll share it with you later on in the broadcast.  But it basically says, engulf her in rage until she understands her violence.  Excuse me?  Engulf her in rage?  And nobody's saying anything.”

The media also has no interest in covering Francis Fox Piven and her calls for violence either. Glenn’s solution? Offense.

“I want Martin Luther King Day on The Blaze, I would like that to be focused on those calling for violence, really, truly I want an expose, I want a packet on Frances Fox Piven.  I want everybody to know exactly who she is.  I want all of her articles but then I need summaries so people can consume it, so people know who she is and trying it together with The Coming Insurrection.  When she says we need to be like Greece and we need to be like England, video packages that show what that means, what she's calling -- what she's calling for.  When she says this after they're trying to beat Prince Charles and Camilla to death and screaming "Off with their heads."  No, we don't need to be like England.  No, we don't need to be like the student riots.  They were trying to set London on fire.  That doesn't help solve anything.”

Look for Glenn, The Blaze, and glennbeck.com to expose the people who are truly calling for violence on Monday.

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.
