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."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
