The most counter-culture, punk rock country on the planet

Conservatives are often more in tune with what's going on in politics, they're typically well versed on the 'stats' and are very good at making a point - but when it comes to working their way into cultural relevancy and the arts, conservatives are rarely affective at making a big difference.

Guest host Dana Loesch took on the topic of conservatism in popular culture last night on The Glenn Beck program, and pointed out a few things many on the right fail to remember. She noted how the left rallies behind the talking point that somehow conservatives are narrow in their thinking simply for believing in the very things our founders established the country on. Our founders, who broke away from the mainstream mindset of their day that government is a natural event. The believed the rights of man were out of everyone's reach but of his or her own and God's.

These were the ideals that allowed us to become a sovereign nation, to have freedom of religion, to be one of the first to abolish slavery and elected a leader of color. Our founders were the counter culture of their day, and as progressives mock the ideas of limited government and self-responsibility today, it seems that these ideas are yet again the counter culture.

Or as Dana put it, "our country is the most counter-culture, punk rock country on the planet, and a bunch of squares for the man are trying to crush that spirit."

Later in the show, Dana was joined by two guys (both of whom happened to be named Brandon) who are taking on the progressive dominance in pop-culture. Brandon Morse created a site called Misfit Politics and Brandon Darby, former radical and left-wing activist.

Misfit Politics is a group of young conservatives that uses humor and ridicule to knock down the left’s ridiculous talking points and isolation tactics. You may remember the video Attaaack Watch (see below), which single handedly disarmed the Obama Administration of their website AttackWatch.com – a site built to organize the left against any and everyone who said something negative about the president.

This is just one example of the tactics Brandon's group is using to tear down the false labels and talking points the left is using against conservatives.

If you want to get through to younger generations who may be on the fence about this president, pointing out the absurd policy and the ludicrous hypocrisy they engage in is a great way to do it. As Brandon pointed out, the left writes most of his joke for him, and they jump at the opportunity.

Former radical and left wing activist Brandon Darby is also playing a big role in trying to tackle the progressive falsehoods infiltrating America's popular culture and media talking points. The left’s dominance in culture and the media played a big role in how Brandon became radicalized in the first place. It wasn’t until he began to see the massive gap between what liberals say they believe and the things they are actually doing that Brandon realized that he didn’t want to have anything to do with them, and that he was actually far more aligned with the right. Brandon spent much of the last year infiltrating Occupy protests, working on a documentary called "Occupy Unmasked" to expose how radicalized and dangerous the left is becoming.

Watch Dana’s discussion with Morse and Darby below:

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."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
