MUST WATCH: Glenn declares "I am a man" during passionate GBTV monologue

On GBTV tonight, Glenn delivered what was probably one of his most passionate monologues since he began to broadcast on television. Why did Secretary Hilda Solis set Glenn off on a discussion that covered everything from new farming regulations to the Civil Rights Movement to the history of the Soviet Union? It was Glenn at his best, and a monologue that truly must be seen to be appreciated.

He started off the show by discussing proposed new regulations on farms that would limit the role of children in agricultural businesses, which would dramatically alter age old roles of youths on farms.

The Springfield News-Leader expains:

Proposed changes to federal child labor laws could interfere with that. The changes would place heavy restrictions on the type of work that kids can do on farms — even family farms.

The U.S. Department of Labor opted to revisit its proposed regulations, so kids under 16 may not be able to work on their grandparents’ or other relatives farms in the future, if those family farms have been incorporated. The 51-page document up for debate offers restrictions on kids working in livestock pens, operating farm machinery, using power tools, climbing ladders, and working specified hours.

These changes are being spearheaded by Hilda Solis and the Department of Labor.

But as Glenn sees it, this is just the latest example of the government attempting to “co-parent”, and as a result of the interference children will ultimately lose out on the vital, character-building effects of having to know how to work at a young age. As a result, they will likely value their independence less and rely more on government than their selves when they grow older.

“Life isn’t easy but it is so much easier when you work hard,” Glenn said. The regulations will rob children of this lesson.

“They will learn to be a hard-working free man, and not a slave,” he added.

Glenn, of course, does not mean a slave in the way African Americans were enslaved prior to the Civil War, but in the sense of a group of people being ruled over by another, in this case a slave to the federal government. He said that he fears future generations are losing the ability to be able to stand and say “I am a man” and an individual, not part of a collective.

“I am so tired of these elites telling us what to do,” Glenn said.

“Because I saw hard work from my father, because I saw him have passion for what he did. Because I saw hard work from my grandfather. Because I saw people work themselves to death I happen to have good work ethic and I hope my kids learn it from me.”

“I hope they are as lucky as I am to attract people who have the same values,” Glenn said as he held up a copy of the Wall Street Journal trumpeting the success of GBTV.

“I end up there because of the people I work with,” he said pointing at the article. “Because you understand.

“Our values are being destroyed,” he warned. “Our culture is being destroyed.”

Glenn said people need to look back to the founding documents and to see the rights that man is endowed with from the Creator: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

“I am a man and I demand to be treated as a man. I make my own choices and I live with the consequences of those choices. I do not answer to you federal government. That’s not how it works,” he said.

Glenn said that when regulations are created that are not good citizens are required by The Declaration of Independence to respond.

“I hope to God we are not there yet, but you could make that case. And I’m so sorry if the media finds that dangerous speech. Is it dangerous now to quote the founding documents?” he said.

He said that if the government asks him to violate his values or give up his rights, he only has one answer: “I will not comply”. He admitted it would not be easy, the consequences might even be scary, but he will stand for what he believes in.

Glenn concluded the monologue with a look back at historical examples of overreaching federal regulation.

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
