GLENN: Officer Goforth. Incredible funeral. Probably the most humbling funeral or anything like that I've been to. Really, truly remarkable. There were 11,000 people that attend. There was 6,000 in the actual church, and it was remarkable. When they dismissed the audience -- or, the congregation, they said if the VIPs, the judges, and the politicians, any VIP, if you will stay, and if the family will stay, we want to release everybody one by one.

So let's start with the honor guard. And this whole section got up, maybe about 5 percent of the audience got up. And that was police honor guard from Canada and all across the United States. Remarkable.

Then they said, if the police officers will stand up and be excused and head for the exits. And I would say 80 percent of the audience stood up. And those were uniformed police officers and then followed by the plainclothes police officers. The only ones left to excuse were the maybe 300 VIPs and then the family of about 30 people. The rest of that audience was police officers.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: And when they went out -- when we went outside and they brought the casket outside. I've never seen anything like this. It was so powerful.

Kathleen Goforth, his wife, when she walked in, there was an audible gasp when she walked in. She was held on each elbow by a police officer and brought in by the sheriff's department.

And we couldn't figure out. None of us in our group had ever seen anyone react this way. We had never seen anyone's expression. We couldn't place it. We looked at that and said, I've never seen that in a movie. I've never seen that in real life. I've never seen anyone's reaction this way. And she was almost a blank slate, as if -- as if she was in a total state of shock right then. And the way she was looking at the audience as she walked in, literally caused you see to gasp.

People immediately started to cry. When it was over and she walked out, the only thing I could compare it to, the only thing I could begin to get my arms around is that she was -- she was almost confused or she was blown away by how many people were there. Because what she was doing was, she was looking. As she walked by us, she was looking -- slowly walking by and slowly looking at each individual face, as if she was trying to imprint on us, as if she was trying to remember who was there and having us remember that she saw us and was thanking us for being there.

It was -- it was heartbreaking. Absolutely heartbreaking. The gas station where he was shot -- what, 15 times -- is just overwhelmed with flowers.

And now we're starting to see great things happening around the country. People are starting to watch the backs of police officers. Not just here in Texas, but all across the country.

And I will tell you that I am -- I think that we're at a turning point. I think we're at a disconnect. Let me say it this way. I really believe that history will go back in time and look at this particular period of time and they will say, this was the turning point.

This was the fork in the road. And because they chose this direction, they either destroyed themselves or they survived. But it was this season. It was this fall. This end of this summer. It was this time that the Americans chose who they would become.

And I don't know which one we're going to choose yet. I have hope that we are starting to wake up and we are starting to choose the right way.

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.
