The leaders of the conservative movement the media doesn't want you to know about

There is a reason conservatives have been so success with new media, social media and spreading their message on the ground, and it's one the mainstream media hopes they never have to shed a light on. The grassroots conservative movement, or as Dana referred to it, "the new American Revolution." is being led by Generation Y. Steven Crowder, Madeleine McAulay, Brandon Morse and Hannah Giles joined Dana on the GBTV set to talk about what they're doing to impact culture and bring a voice to conservatism, and how more people like them can get involved.

So, why is there this perception that conservatives are old and out of touch? The short answer is pop culture.

Brandon Morse, creator of Misfit Politics, explained that "the media has become this big boogie man [to conservatives] that we have to fight against, but it's not something we need to fight against. It's something that we need to get involved with. What we put into the mainstream is what changes the culture. If we, as a movement, start getting more involved in culture - movies, music, video games - I guarantee you things will improve at the polls and in politics."

Steven Crowder, comedian and Fox News contributor, also pointed out that the demographic that conservative media is appeal too is middle aged. They aren't running advertisements for an audience of 18 to 30-year-olds. Everything that appeals to the younger demographic, from movies to music, is telling them to be a liberal. Steven also emphasized how important it is to be authentic. 'You don't have to go out and join the Young Republicans and look like a young version of our favorite political commentator.'

Both Madeleine and Hannah discussed that a lot of the false narrative of "what a conservatives is" or "what a conservative looks like" comes from conservatives. Media networks are still painting the picture that you have to be an old, white males to get involved in politics, but the new media is changing that game up on them. It's not just the left that is shocked by what's going on in new media right now.

"That's, I think, a big part of why people like Brandon, Hannah, and Dana identify themselves as conservatives, not Republicans. They threaten that old guard," Steven said.

He referred to Dana and those like her as "apostates" of the Republican party.

We've been told for so long that people like Dana Loesch don't exist in conservatism, and instead of showing America that they do, that there are young, cool, attractive conservatives that young people can relate to, the right continues to point the camera at the middle-aged men.

"The left knows what they're doing and who the need to put in front of the camera. But whenever we come out and say something they [the media] do their best to ignore us," Morse said.

Hannah Giles pointed out that the youth also need to step up and do a better job of holding the politicians and the media accountable and demand they be paid attention to. "Politicians are power obsessed," Giles added. "We [the youth] are giving them their jobs, they work for us, but we're not stepping up and telling them 'hey, you work for us, put the camera on us'."

Later in the show, Dana asked the panel of young conservatives a few questions from people in the studio audience. How can young people show their peers that the current large government is a hindrance for them? The panel discusses that and much more in the clip below.

"Our job should get more difficult if we take control of the White House and the Senate," Dana pointed out during the show. She encouraged young people who want to get involved in the conservative movement to join Twitter, to blog, and join groups in your community.

Dana described Twitter as the new "front line" in the battle with the left. Plus, "where else can you argue with Roseanne Barr?" she joked.

"Use your skills to help amplify your voice in that movement. Don't forget who you are."

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."
