Crying Walker opponent: ‘This is the end of democracy!’

Governor Scott Walker’s victory in Wisconsin quickly turned into a pity party for the left. While most took to the airways in full fledge spin mode, others had still not come to terms with the embarrassing defeat.

CNN interviewed an anti-Walker protestor live in Wisconsin following the news of Governor Walker’s victory. It would be the understatement of the century to say the man didn’t take the news too well. Glenn played the interview on radio this morning:

VOICE:  I'm just disappointed. This is the end of democracy. We just got outspent 34 million to 4 million. This was ‑‑ this was the biggest election in America and I hope you keep me on tonight because this hurts us all. Every single one of you out there in the nation, if you're watching, democracy died tonight.

REPORTER:  You're very emotional.

VOICE:  I'm very emotional because we all had a lot invested in this. This was it. If we didn't win tonight, the end of the U.S. as we know it just happened. That's it. We just got outspent 34 million to 4 million and we don't have any other resource left but the people you see here behind me. And if the people you see here behind me can't get it done tonight, it's done. And I'm just disappointed.This is the end of democracy. We just got outspent 34 million to 4 million. This was the biggest election in America, and I hope you keep me on tonight. Because this hurts us all. Every single one of you out there in the nation, if you're watching ‑‑ I'm very emotional because we all had a lot invested in this. This was it.  If we didn't win tonight, the end of the USA as we know it just happened. That's it.  We just got outspent $34 million to $4 million and we don't have any other resource left but the people you see here behind me. And if the people you see here behind me can't get it done tonight, it's done.

It’s hard to decide whether to laugh or feel sorry for this man who is clearly distraught over the loss of his beloved democracy. Fortunately for the rest of us though, we live in a republic, not a democracy. And after last night, the republic is looking pretty strong.

“Well, you know what,” Glenn asked. “Democracy is done. Democracies die all the time. Democracies, democracies have a very short life.”

“You want to see what democracy looks like, go look at Egypt. Go look at Syria. That's what democracy looks like,” Glenn continued. “We're not a democracy. That's why we're a republic. And I'm here to say happy days are here again if democracy died last night because that means the republic will live.”

In light of this groundbreaking interview, it is interesting to look at the media coverage of last night's events. Glenn was watching CNN throughout the night, and couldn’t help but notice the overwhelming amount of time they spent airing taped footage of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee instead of focusing on a historic U.S. election.

“I have nothing against the queen. I have nothing against England. They’re our allies,” Glenn said. “And the Queen – she’s one tough broad.”

“But in the middle of the election, probably the most important state election since the Missouri compromise, I don't know, I don't think I need to see footage taped earlier of the celebration of the Queen.”

As news coverage becomes more and more internationally oriented, important domestic issues and events, like the Wisconsin recall election, go under reported.

“This is the problem with our news media. This is the problem with our society,” Glenn lamented. “All of our towns are exactly the same because they're global gaps. They're global entities. I don't really care about global stuff. I don't think you do either.”

“CNN has no allegiance to the United States of America. They don't have any allegiance. We're all the same,” Glenn said.

“And when CNN decides to cover the Queen last night, and one of the biggest elections for a state in the nation's history is relegated to a little box so we can see the Queen and the pretty airplanes and the parades and her doing that cool queen wave in the bubble car, I mean I don't think I need that. But thank you CNN you make my job so much easier.”

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.

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."
