Glenn: "It's when you're in trouble that people begin to see your true character"

Have you ever criticized Vice President Biden or opposed the objections being thrown at Mitt Romney? If you have, according to Biden, you’re a “squealing pig.”

It’s odd that the Democrats constantly seem to be name-calling those who criticize them or, much less, defend themselves against inaccurate accusations. After all, this is the party of “diversity and inclusivity,” isn’t it?

“These are lovers of all opinions, all lifestyles, all choices as valid – Joe Biden is the Vice President of the United States.  He's calling us pigs now.  That's fantastic, isn't it?  He's so inclusive,” Glenn said. “Actually it is fantastic, because it shows their desperation.  It shows who they really are.”

But that's not who Americans are.

The true character of a person is hard to see when things are going well for them. But in times of desperation, that’s when you see who a person really is in their core. When someone finds themselves in trouble their true character can be seen.

“We don't have to worry about the name calling nonsense because name calling doesn't matter.  Sticks and stones may break my bones, but calling me a pig really is ridiculous,” Glenn said.

The more hate, insults, and lies this administration throws at conservatives the more trouble they are in. The White House is showing us what kind of shape they’re really in because there is no validity or substance to the things they are spouting out across the nation about conservatives, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or their policies.

“Heading into the home stretch they've never been questioned, they've never had their back pushed up against the wall, they've never had any of these things happen to them,” Glenn pointed out. “They don't know how to deal with it.”

However, the Tea Party and true conservatives have been under attack since day one – from both parties – first by the Bush administration, then by this one.

“You know who you are,” Glenn told listeners, “and you've known who they are for a long time.”

It’s obvious that the Obama administration is in trouble. But what kind of shape are we in? What kind of shape are Americans in? That’s the question Glenn answered this morning.

“I think we’re in better shape that in any time, since 9/12/2011,” he said. “Do you remember the feeling of unity and resolve that we had?”

9/12 is a day that all Americans remember – a day America came together no matter the differences that were between them.

“People are beginning to come together. We used to care about each other. On that day we did literally care about each other. We turned to God. We had a common goal and purpose. That's what Americans always do in a time of crisis:  We come together.  We've come together.  We've turned to God,” Glenn said.

As Americans look ahead and see the challenges that lie ahead, it’s clear that we are at a crossroads.

“We're looking at the choices carefully and we're choosing the paths that lead us back to the road the founders put us on, at least many of us are,” Glenn noted. “Not everybody.  Admittedly there's a chasm in America.”

As divided as the country may seem, the overwhelming majority of Americans generally stand on the same side of the major issues.

“Don't forget every poll, every single one done over the course of years has shown that conservatives outnumber liberals at least two to one, and a full 79% of Americans are not liberals,” Glenn reminded listeners.

Liberals may act like they are in the overwhelming majority, but they’re not – it’s not even close. This is why they’ve worked to influence and gain control of the mainstream media, and why they alienate and ridicule those bold enough to speak out against them.

They want you to feel alone. You’re not.

Internal polling is showing that if the election were held today, Mitt Romney would win. While a lot can change in the next two months, more and more people are waking up and coming together to get this country back on track.

“This doesn't mean that we're not going to face some hard times,” Glenn told listeners.

There are still a lot of challenges ahead, and Glenn pointed out that many of us are already seeing it at the grocery store.

The point Glenn is making, however, is that Americans will come together and we will make it through the challenges that lie ahead. For the last few years, Glenn has been telling people that his audience will lead the way towards restoring America.

“You're part of the group that will save the nation. We will hold it together, Glenn told the audience.

“You will be a shelter from the storm. You will be a blessing to your neighbor, to your family, to your state and to your country, because you've done the hard work. You know what we're facing.  We're facing freedom, real freedom that will come at a cost, or slavery – free stuff.  The good news is there's a lot of Americans that have had their fill of the free stuff promised because they see the freedoms going away, and more importantly, they also know you can't keep paying for this free stuff:  it won't work.  It never does.”

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."
