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.

 

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
