Courage among the cowards: woman stands up to ax wielding killers

In the brutal radical Islamic driven murder in London this week, there is one profile in courage that needs to be shared. One lone woman stood out in the crowd and confronted the two killers, who were still bloody and still carrying weapons. Fearless, the woman put her own life ahead of others - an amazing act of courage. Glenn reacted to the courage and to the cowards in the streets of London.

"There was one individual that stood up. One," Glenn said. "It was a woman that stood up. In fact, she didn't stand up. She first had to stand up, reach up, pull the little string to ring the bell so the bus would stop that she was on, so she got off the bus because she saw blood in the streets. She looked around all the sheep being led right directly to slaughter and walked up to the guy with the blood on his hands."

"This woman approached him, confronted him. She then looked back at the crowd with contempt and disgust. You know what made her stand up in the bus? She said her Christian belief. She's a Catholic. Her Christian belief. When she found out it wasn't an accident, why did she pursue him? Because she said there were children there and she didn't ‑‑ better to happen to her than a child."

"Where were the rest of the sheep?"

"Here's the difference between us and the greatest generation. The greatest generation we had leaders, and the greatest generation we had God. There were things that were bigger than us. There were things worth living for and there were things worth dying for. What are those things worth dying for anymore? What are those things worth standing for anymore? Your job? Your car, your house? How many of us will sit down to save our children? I don't want my children to live in a world like that."

Glenn said that people have been taught to be sheep, to be silent, and to no longer stand up for things bigger than themselves.

"Why do you think these people are so bold? Because you have been taught to be silent."

"What is the difference between the three airplanes that crashed on September 11th? The first two didn't know what was going on and they thought they would be left to live. They thought it was a hijacking and that was it. They didn't think anybody was crazy enough to fly them into a building. The third plane, because they had information, they knew, and Todd Beamer stood up. It's better to go down fightin' than go down like sheep. We're gonna save people. And so they rushed, and they lost, but we remember their name."

"I will never forget, I will never forget Todd Beamer's name. I will never forget 'Let's roll,' and I am ashamed to say I will never forget the sheep in the streets of London."

"Choose you today who do you serve? Choose today life or death. Choose today what the future is you want your children to live under. Freedom? Freedom where, yes, at times we can be divisive; or death. Because that is your choice: Submit or die. As for me and my family, I choose God."

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."
