Glenn reacts to latest viral video: ‘She’s just like you. She’s just like me.’

By now you may have seen the delightful “Dancing queen at bus stop” viral video featuring Ellie Cole of Eastleigh, England, but this morning on radio Glenn explained why it so refreshing to see stories like this in the midst of all the chaos going on around the world today.

If you haven’t seen the video, here it is:

“Now, here's this woman who is – She's obviously not rich. You can see the fray in her jacket. She's a working woman,” Glenn said. “She's got an average life. So listen to this story.”

According to TheBlaze:

The woman behind the now-viral “bus stop Dancing Queen” video has gone from being a surprise Internet celebrity to landing a role with a professional stage show.

Ellie Cole was given a role in a play at The Point Theatre, in Eastleigh, Hampshire, after a writer saw her bus stop dance video.

The opportunity was particularly exciting for Cole because it represented a second chance. See, she used to study performing arts at Eastleigh College but had to stop because she couldn’t afford it

But now she gets a shot at the stage.

Unlike the You Tube video suggests, Cole has clarified that she is actually listening to Alesha Dixon’s “Knock Down” not Abba’s “Dancing Queen.” Regardless, she is immensely grateful for the opportunity she has been given.

“I have my headphones in every day on the way back from work and I just can’t help myself – I just dance,” she said. “Wherever I am, if there’s music I find myself jigging along to it. I think anybody who likes music could identify with it.”

“And it's the woman whose life, you know, kind of just slipped by because things happen and she didn't pursue what she wanted to pursue. But she's not angry about it. She's not disgruntled about it. She still is a dancer at heart,” Glenn said. “And she's sitting in a bus stop, somebody notices her. I don't know this, but I'll bet you somewhere along the line there was a lot of mocking of her. Instead, somebody saw the dancer in her and gave her the opportunity. And look at how her life is going to change. Look at the meaning behind that.”

“As the rest of the world talks about the shooters and the war that we're going to go into – I mean, we have to do it, I have to bring you the news of the day… But just watch this woman,” he continued. “And take the time and watch her as the dogs pass her on the street, as somebody walking their dog pass her and she automatically stops dancing. And when she thinks nobody's watching her, she dances again. Watch her and recognize, she's just like you. She's just like me.”

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."
