Congressman attacks conservatives for opposing regulation on internet

Did you hear that conservatives are trying to shut down the Internet? And they want to destroy the environment? It’s news to Glenn and crew too, but that didn’t stop Congressman Markey from going after the GOP in a new, slightly unhinged, attack.

You can watch the video (courtesy of The Blaze) below:

Markey said, “On Wednesday this week they brought to the House floor a bill to repeal the Environmental Protection Agency's authority to regulate greenhouse gases. Then yesterday they passed a resolution to repeal the FCC's ability to ensure the openness of the Internet.”

“Does anybody have a problem with the openness of the Internet? You can get on the Internet and pretty much write anything,” Glenn said.

“Their bill will do exactly what they say the GOP is trying to do. The GOP is trying to stop them from radically altering the Internet,” Pat said.

Stu pointed out the ridiculousness of their argument, as progressives are trying to add FCC regulation to the Internet, which is inherently free already. “When you add regulation to it, you can't make it more free. It was already free,” he said.

Glenn said, “Anybody who uses the Internet, really uses the Internet, you know how free it is. YouTube, what is that? You can go and post your own news story. You can put it anywhere and if you have done a good enough job, it will catch on.”

Markey also said, “So, as time ticked down on Friday afternoon the Republicans in Congress were trying to shut down the Internet and the Federal Government simultaneously. They didn't shut down the government and we're about to make sure that they don't shut down the Internet, either. We are going to organize, mobilize, and get energized to fend off these assaults.”

“What a ridiculous idea. So, if we don't set a new set of regulations, the Internet will stop and you're talking about companies that want to make money off of the Internet. Why would they shut down the Internet? It would just shut down, you know, a third, a quarter of their business? Why would they do that?” Stu asked.

“It's so amazing, though, if you boil down this argument … if you boil down Markey's argument, what he's saying is the government doesn't have enough power. Who believes that in America? Who sits back and thinks, gosh, if the government had only more power to control our actions?”

“And this is a guy, by the way, that is the mental muscle behind the global warming bill they're trying to pass,” Glenn said.

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.
