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.

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
