Glenn: Talk radio is not going to be destroyed

What started off as a discussion of UNC asking a local radio station not to mention their sports program during The Rush Limbaugh Show quickly became a passionate defense of local businesses during radio today.

The Blaze reported:

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has asked a local radio station known as “Rush Radio” to stop mentioning both the school and its Tar Heels sports program during the broadcast of Rush Limbaugh’s talk show, the North Carolina News and Observer reported.

The university has similarly asked for no references to Limbaugh’s show during broadcasts of its football and basketball games on the station, WRDU 106.1.

The school’s actions, announced last week, are a direct response to Limbaugh calling Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” after she testified in favor of insurance coverage of contraceptives. Local residents petitioned the school to sever ties with the station over the controversy, according to WCHL 1360.

Now, I haven't talked a lot about the Rush Limbaugh thing. We have mentioned it. We have discussed it, but I haven't given you a plan of action because, quite honestly, I'm working on one that is far beyond what I'm going to talk to you about here, but thank goodness somebody is taking a stand. When I see the UNC Chapel Hill tells radio station to stop mentioning its sports during the Rush Limbaugh show, what is that? What does that mean? When they attacked this program and attacked me on FOX, what they did was they went after our sponsors and they went after all of the sponsors and we were left with only the sponsors -- honestly, only the ones I wanted now, the ones who understand who they're dealing with. What they're trying to do is force us out of business. Because they can't beat us, because they can't get you to stop listening, because they can't win an argument, they have to put us out of business. Now, they tried and they couldn't and so then they applied political pressure and they still couldn't do it, but believe me, because I believe in divine providence, I saw the writing on the wall and we started working on GBTV 18 months ago," Glenn said.

"This is why I've been saying to you cryptically, freedom of speech is about to be lost. Let me be clear now. What they're doing is they are now talking us on three fronts," Glenn said.

What are the three fronts? National Advertisers, Scatter Spots, and local businesses.

"What they're doing is Media Matters has gone out with their little Chieftains and they've gone out and they've assembled an army of hatred and destruction and they are going after and they're writing down all of the clients," Glenn explained.

Several radio stations have told Glenn that they have gotten phone calls from people asking for their client list.

"They are organizing throughout the country," he warned.

Glenn used the example of 'Bob's House of Cars'. "Here's, you know, Bob's House of Cars and they are now giving that list to a national group," Glenn said.

"Now, Bob, he comes in and all he does is he fixes cars. He's a mechanic. He wants people to know I fix cars here locally. He happens to know a lot of people that listen to Rush Limbaugh. It works for his business. So, he advertises. He advertises on my program or on the local radio station, not even in Rush Limbaugh (national). And Media Matters has their goons call up and harass Bob."

"Let's say Bob lives and works in Dubuque, Iowa. They're calling from Maine, they're calling from Florida, they're calling from California," Pat added.

"And they are overwhelming the switchboards so Bob can't get any radio calls through," Glenn said. As a result, customers can't get through to Bob.

"Bob has no idea what he's dealing with," Glenn said. "Remember that story that came out about Media Matters about three months ago where they said, 'We go after the local journalists, we go after the small ones because we can scare them because they've never had to deal with anything like this before, they don't know what hit them.' That's what's happening to local advertisers."

"It's the equivalent of blocking the parking lot so people can't pull in to buy products and they're doing it and they now it," Stu said.

Stu said if someone was doing this in person - forcibly stopping a person from engaging in commerce - they would be arrested.

"This is about small business. They are getting you, they are getting you where it hurts every time. Small business is what creates this country. It creates 75% of all jobs," Glenn said.

"And they are deliberately stopping small business from doing business. They're not just boycotting it. They're stopping them from doing business," Pat added.

" We must stand together. Now, I want to give you a website. Defendsmallbusiness.com. These people have decided that they are going to go after it and they are going to stand against Media Matters. They're going to stand against these people," Glenn said.

"I want you to go there. You'll sign a petition in support of small businesses and the right of free speech."

"That's Step 1. By this summer I'm going to give you Step 2 and I'm telling you, small businesses, small businesses, we are going to stand together. We are going to stand together. You have to decide, is it worth it? Small businesses who are on this program, I urge you to do your new spots. I will help you do your spots that say, we're a small business and we are not afraid. We're a small business and we stand with the -- we may not agree with everything that Glenn Beck says or Rush Limbaugh says or Sean Hannity says. We may not agree with everything they say, but we have -- they have a right to say it and we are proud and we will not sit down. And I'm telling you, you start doing your commercials like that on these radio stations and you will see an outpouring of people that are willing to come into your store to support you. You have to identify yourself. They are trying to scare you away and let me tell you, they are not just doing it on the spots, on national commercials. They're also doing it on the local commercials to put small businesses out and they are attacking our affiliates. Our affiliates are under attack right now."

"Decide where you stand. These affiliates are deciding where they stand. The small businesses are deciding where they stand. Have you decided?" Glenn asked.

"Small business, I grew up in it. I know it. I have a small business. I had six employees. Now I have 130. I know how hard it is to stay in business. I know what it's like."

"Talk radio is not going to be destroyed. My freedom of speech will not be impaired," Glenn said.

 

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
