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:

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
