Why net neutrality is a terrible idea

The push for net neutrality is on and it is the typical progressive issue. Given a name that sounds fair and logical, what it really boils down to is government giving itself an access point for more regulation, power and money. What will happen if this passes is disastrous - Glenn has more details on radio today.

"This is truly about control. When you look at what they've tried to do, they've tried to take away your guns. They're trying to take away your voice. They need control of the internet. Now, I hope to God they don't it get. I don't know how you get around this. But -- but there are a lot of people on the left and on the right that have bought into this that are good, decent people. They don't know what they're doing -- they don't what an they're doing. God forgive them for they know not what they do. They don't know what they're doing," Glenn said.

"Some of these companies know exactly what they're doing, like Netflix. They know exactly what they're doing and they're doing it because of their own corporate interests."

"I'm telling you, I no longer believe that a man -- this is a big thing for me. I no longer believe a man can chart his own course in the media world. I do not believe that a guy can start with nothing and end up Rupert Murdoch in this nation. You can't do it. There are too many corporate interests. And there's too many legal games that are played."

"You cannot do it. If we lose the internet and the government takes control of the internet, you will not be able to chart your own course online either."

Below is a rough transcript of this segment:

GLENN: Here. You go to -- right now, you can go to GlennBeck.com. And there is a place for you to put your name and your public comment, and you can sign and it goes to the FCC.

PAT: Please do this.

GLENN: You have to have it in, the last day is February 26 is the vote. Say no to the Obama FCC internet takeover.

PAT: Look at the left-wing outlets that are lined up in favor of net neutrality. The center for media justice.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Media Matters. Color of Change.

GLENN: That's Van Jones.

PAT: I mean, on and on. Lesbians for Tech.

STU: They're a great organization. I do like them. Your sexual preference matters a lot in technology. I only want bisexual and transgendered IT people. It's important you go to --

PAT: Thank you. Common Cause. On and on. They're all -- this is just --

GLENN: Yes. This is a big one.

STU: It really is. Think about the arguments we made back in the health care. Back in those days. When we're saying, they're looking to take control of one-sixth of the economy here. Well, the internet is highly intertwined in one hundred percent of the economy.

GLENN: From the people who brought you Obamacare.com. The people who brought you --

PAT: Which cost $2.2 billion. Just for the website.

GLENN: They now say they'll be able to help you navigate the internet and make it better.

STU: How does anyone fall for this? This is inexplicable.

GLENN: I don't know. But listen to me, it's minorly about taxes. They'll come after you with taxes on everything. This is truly about control. When you look at what they've tried to do, they've tried to take away your guns. They're trying to take away your voice. They need control of the internet. Now, I hope to God they don't it get. I don't know how you get around this. But -- but there are a lot of people on the left and on the right that have bought into this that are good, decent people. They don't know what they're doing -- they don't what an they're doing. God forgive them for they know not what they do. They don't know what they're doing.

Some of these companies know exactly what they're doing, like Netflix. They know exactly what they're doing and they're doing it because of their own corporate interests.

PAT: I'd like to boycott them right now.

GLENN: But I can't. I love their service.

PAT: I love them too much.

[laughter]

But they're all over this.

GLENN: I want you to go to GlennBeck.com and sign this petition. They just said in Congress, you know, 30,000 people -- 30,000 people, that's a lot of people to listen to. So far, 16,000 people have signed this petition and sent it in. It's at GlennBeck.com. But we've got to let our voices be heard.

I'm telling you, I no longer believe that a man -- this is a big thing for me. I no longer believe a man can chart his own course in the media world. I do not believe that a guy can start with nothing and end up Rupert Murdoch in this nation. You can't do it. There are too many corporate interests. And there's too many legal games that are played.

You cannot do it. If we lose the internet and the government takes control of the internet, you will not be able to chart your own course online either. That leaves us exactly, where? With a mimeograph machine.

Say no to the FCC takeover of the internet. Go to GlennBeck.com.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
