Glenn had to go to the hospital after an ATV flipped, but the real story is what happened next

Another Beck vacation at the ranch has taken some unexpected twists and turns, but despite a few broken bones everyone might be coming out a better person at the end of it. Glenn and the family are staying at their ranch in the Mountain West this week, and they've already had to take a trip to the hospital.

According to Glenn's posts on Facebook, Raphe and his friend Bowen were riding ATVs on the ranch when the vehicle suddenly rolled on them.

"As seemingly always, when on vacation, we are headed to the hospital. ATV rolled on us. Raphe is in a bit of shock, and his best friend (the one smiling in the photo for the first time in an hour) has a broken arm," Glenn said. "Praise God it wasn't worse,"

Bowen apparently unbuckled his seat belt, thinking they would be trapped inside. He ended up getting trapped underneath the vehicle and breaking his arm. When the adults reached the scene, Raphe had already gotten free and was doing his best to dig his friend out of the mud.

While the accident left everyone shaken, Glenn captured some powerful moments on camera of Raphe and his friend Bowen.

"It has been not the quiet vacation I usually like, but I have had some life long memories made in just two days," Glenn wrote. "Picking my sister up at her home in Wyoming. Teaching my nephew how to shoot a shotgun. Teaching my friends kids how to shoot a hand gun, teaching an amazingly smart, kind and well behaved young man the history of America one on one. And watching my son comfort his best friend in the hospital after they flipped an ATV in the mud."

"You find out a lot about character on a day like this. I found treasure inside my son!" Glenn concluded.

Glenn also thanked his security firm, Gavin de Becker, for their help in getting everyone stabilized after the accident.

"Thank God for my Gavin DeBecker security team," he wrote. "They have protected me and my family for several years and I have seen them do truly heroic things. Lance and Rick, who is an EMT-B, are on duty this trip. They had everyone stabilized and the hospital alerted within ten minutes."

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."
