How to engage the youth in rebuilding our nation

A young member of Glenn's studio audience yesterday asked Glenn how to get people her age more involved in making America a better place.

Glenn's response?

"Don’t ask permission," Glenn said. "You just do it."

AUDIENCE MEMBER: I 100% agree that we need to have a president that takes that executive power and puts it back into legislation and ultimately the American people. So, my question is I deal with people my age who have no interest in politics whatsoever, so when we give that power back to the American people, are they actually going to come together and work together to make a better America? And what do we do to help that along?

GLENN: Here is the key, here’s the key, and that’s what this weekend in Birmingham really is all about—do it yourself. People are convinced now they can’t do it themselves. You don’t have anything to say over your healthcare. You don’t have anything to say over your retirement funds. You don’t have anything to say about anything anymore. More and more you can’t do things you want to do to your yard. So, people don’t look and say I can fix that problem.

You know all of the problems that we have in America can be fixed. When I said on the air two weeks ago we’re going to raise $2 million, and I don’t care if I have to take those Christians from the Middle East, and I will walk them across this open, porous border myself. The mail came in from thousands of people all across the country, said you tell me when and where, I’ll meet you in Mexico. Okay?

We’re people who don’t believe in an open border, but when it comes to righteous things, we’ll take care of it. What the hell do we need the State Department for? I can raise the money. I know we’re raising the money. I know we have ex-CIA guys who can vet all of these people. We know exactly who they are. I can pay for their airplane ticket. I can go on the air and say, “Who’s a church that wants to adopt this Christian family?” and I’ll have hundreds of churches all over the country, they’ll say I’ll take this church—thousands of them, thousands of them. What the hell do we need the government for? Why do I have to ask permission for anything?

That’s your generation. Don’t ask permission. You just do it. All the entrepreneurs—correct me if I’m wrong—everybody in Silicon Valley says the same thing. The winners all walk in to ask for money from the hedge funds, and they all start, the winners all start like this: “Okay, we’re not sure this is entirely legal, but…”

Why is that important? Because the people who built the train to go across the United States of America said the same thing—I’m not sure we could even do this, I don’t even know if it’s legal, but we want to build a train from the East Coast to the West Coast. And they did it without any interference from the government. They just did it because they could. That’s what we have to excite in your generation, and that will work. That will work.

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."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
