Trayvon Martin case falling apart

We are nearly two weeks into the George Zimmerman trial, and it is beginning to look like legally, this case shouldn’t have even made it this far. Regardless of what one thinks of Zimmerman, there is less and less evidence that warrants convicting him of second-degree murder. Earlier this week, we learned Trayvon’s dad testified that he did not think it was his son’s voice on the critical 9-1-1 call.

“So Zimmerman looks unbelievably innocent,” Glenn said on radio this week. “Trayvon Martin's dad even answers ‘no’ to the question of whether that's his son screaming for help. Even Trayvon's dad is saying, ‘Nope, that's not my son.’”

Furthermore, the judge has reversed her decision and is now going to allow toxicology reports from the night of Trayvon’s death to be used as evidence. This case has become so sensational and racially charged in large part because the media initiated the narrative within minutes of learning of the shooting.

“I mean, the media has made this kid into – now we finally are being allowed the evidence in the trial of his dope smoking and the fact that he, in the toxicology reports, he had drugs in his system. Now, that doesn't make you necessarily violent, but it does make you paranoid,” Glenn continued. “The media has not done their job on Trayvon Martin… In the last year, the media has condemned Zimmerman, and it appears now that they were completely wrong on that. So they have set the wheels into motion for civil unrest here in America.”

“Yeah, you had the usual suspects: Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson doing the same thing they always do, trying to convict people before they knew any of the facts. Trying to convict because they perceived him as a white guy,” Pat continued. “And that's what they do. They go to where a white person is in hot water, either rightly or wrongly, and they try to convict them before the trial even occurs. That's what they did with the Duke lacrosse team, that's what they did in the Tawana Brawley case. That's what they did here.”

The most concerning aspect of this case is the potential fallout. Since Zimmerman has already been condemned in the eyes of so many, if he ends up walking free, the situation could turn dire.

“So now what's happening is Zimmerman's going to be let out, and they are already saying that they'll kill him,” Glenn said. “If he goes out on the street, they'll kill him. And you know what? I think they will. I think they will… If he is found innocent, here's what will happen: They will either kill him in the streets or they will try him for civil rights violations. And because he's violated the civil rights by taking this guy, this poor young man's life, that's how they'll get him. His life is over one way or another. And for what? For what? You weren't there. I wasn't there. The best evidence is, at best, inconclusive.’

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."
