The future of the conservative movement

Tuesday night on The Glenn Beck Program, guest host Dana Loesch opened the show with this:

"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."

A quote from Ronald Reagan's first inaugural address as governor that serves as an important reminder that freedom, liberty, and the understanding of tyranny is not genetic. Freedom and liberty have been taken for granted for a long time in this country, and the result has been a generation of apathetic 20-somethings that don't know what tyranny looks like.

Or so media would have you believe.

Dana was joined by a studio audience of people that the media would have you believe don't exist, young conservative activists, "the future of the conservative movement."

America is at a crossroads and young conservatives know what's at stake for them - the choice is clear. America as the founders envisioned it, with a small, limited government, or what you see at Occupy. A group of young Americans revolting because Uncle Sam didn't give them enough. A new class of citizens who don't understand that if you rob from the rich to give to the poor, no one is better off for it.

"One choices gives your freedom of government intervention in your speech, your religion, your assembly, your press. One grants you due process and doesn't impede petition for redress of your grievances," Dana said.

The other choice, she continued, looks more like Rahm Emanuel and other authority figures in our country who use intimidation to shutter businesses and shut down the freedom of thought and speech of anyone with an opposing viewpoint.

"A choice that removes your 4th Amendment right upon travel. A choice that demolishes the 10th Amendment's soft sovereignty of individual states. A choice that makes you financial responsible for your neighbor while denying you the decisions that effect your cost."

For years we've been told that the Democrat Party is the "party of the youth," and lately they've been trying to keep their boot on the neck of the youth by offering them cradle to grave care - "the ultimate nanny experience."

It has become socially acceptable for a 26-years-old to be on their parent's health insurance and still living at home with mom and dad - a description that used to be the description of a loser. Because of the growing nanny state, the nation's debt is growing out of control.

"Every child born is now born into servitude with a personal share of around $50,000 worth of national debt."

Despite this, every child in America is being told that they have to go to college to be successful. But not just any college, society is teaching young Americans that trade and tech schools just aren't good enough.

"So we go into debt to pay for an education that can't be used after graduation because no one is hiring. Why is no one hiring? Business can't plan ahead because Congress fights over whether or not they're going to increase taxes on job creators."

Dana went on to explain that the youth-loving Democrats pushed to artificially lower the interest rates of student loans for 1 year, something that would have to be subsidized by a decade of higher taxes on businesses that file as S-Corps. Sounds great, right? Except, when these students graduate they can't find jobs. Why? Businesses lack the capital to hire them - like the majority of businesses that file as S-Corps.

The Democrats have a different motive than the average young adult who is going to college, looking five years into the future at what they hope do with their education. No, the Democrats aren't worried about the future of these students looking at six-figures of debt. They're worried about how to hold onto their power and win the next election, so they're using the concept of "free education" as a sales campaign for the youth vote.

"This was the lens the Democrats attempted to reach the youth, with their faceless, composite freak, Julia," Dana said. "Julia is the Democrats dream woman - faceless creation with no mouth and no voice...Her entire existence was provided for by the government," Dana explained. "There is no freedom in that."

"Our generation, we crave freedom," she continued. "I've said it before, we are the true counter-culture. We are like salmon swimming upstream. We recognize the danger in seeding liberty for convenience. The hand that feeds you is the hand that holds you down. And instead of dedicating on cop cars in the street, we're taking the fight right to congresses doorstep. This is one of the reasons the media has tried so hard to pain the Tea Party and grass roots as old and out-of-touch. Their entire narrative is destroyed the moment the recognize how youth lead it truly is. We are living proof that liberty sells."

"We don't want to be the generation that loses that freedom, so we're giving it all we've got."

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."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
