Is Lorreta Lynch Calling For Violence?

The former Attorney General of the United States is feeling trampled upon. So much so that she released a video in a very soft spoken voice --- but the rhetoric didn't exactly match.

LYNCH: I know it's a time of concern for people who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back.

"What rights? Be specific. What rights?" Glenn asked Monday on radio.

LYNCH: I know that this is difficult. But I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers. And it has been been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference.

"Stop. Isn't that exactly what the Tea Party did? Wasn't it just simple people?" Glenn questioned.

Simple people mischaracterized and condemned as crazy, violent racists.

LYNCH: They've marched. They've bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.

"You might have to bleed and die on the streets for it? Is she calling for violence?" Glenn asked.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Who was the person that came out this weekend -- hang on if I have it. That said, "You know, hey, it's time to march. And, you know, in the past, there's been blood and death in the streets."

JEFFY: Loretta Lynch.

GLENN: Yeah, Loretta Lynch. Listen to this.

LORETTA: I know it's a time of concern for people who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on, and even being rolled back.

PAT: Which rights are those that have been assailed, trampled on, and rolled back?

GLENN: Now, why would you say that, Pat? Why would you say that, Pat?

PAT: Because that's exactly what they said in the very beginning of the Bush administration.

GLENN: No, no. That's what they said to us, during the Obama administration.

PAT: And they said it to us -- yes. Yes.

GLENN: We would say, our rights.

What rights? Be specific. What rights?

PAT: Right. Right. And, frankly, we were hard-pressed to name the specifics because we knew there were violations. We knew that they were misusing their power, but it was really hard to point to any one thing and say, "Well, look, they've made it so we can't talk. We can't go to church. We can't --

GLENN: IRS. IRS.

PAT: IRS is a great one, and we have the examples now.

GLENN: Freedom of press.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: The wiretapping of the press, we know.

PAT: All the prosecutions of the journalists under Obama, which was more than all other presidents combined.

GLENN: Combined. How about the I want your church to deliver all of its sermons about homosexuality.

PAT: Oh, yeah. In Houston. Right.

GLENN: I mean, there are three big ones --

PAT: Huge.

GLENN: Aren't all three of those in the First Amendment?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: So we just got to the First Amendment.

STU: Certainly there's no violations to the second.

GLENN: Right. Taking away -- taking away every person who is Social Security, that had -- what was it? That had someone else picking up their check. If you didn't go and pick up your check in person or cash your check in person, you lost your right to guns.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Now, they just overturned that. That was one of the last things they did. And he just took that and through executive order --

PAT: Which was great. Good for him. Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Listen to that.

PAT: But there's more.

LORETTA: We know that this is difficult. But I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. Play one more line.

LORETTA: It's been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals --

GLENN: Stop. Isn't that exactly what the Tea Party did?

PAT: Yes.

JEFFY: Yes.

GLENN: Wasn't it just simple people --

PAT: Yes. And they condemned them as violent racists.

GLENN: Violent racists.

PAT: Crazies.

JEFFY: Oh. Called them names.

PAT: Extremists. Jeez.

GLENN: They said, this is not going to be easy. We have no -- we have no heritage of doing this. But it is time for good people to stand up and say, "No, this is not who we are." And stand up peacefully. And that was deemed we were anti-government.

PAT: And it was the last thing in the world any of us wanted to do because we don't do that kind of stuff. We all have jobs, unlike the left.

GLENN: Correct. We don't do it.

Okay. So first -- first, she says our rights are being trampled.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And it would be very easy for us to say, what rights?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Just like they did.

PAT: Just like they did.

GLENN: But that's not helpful.

PAT: But it is fun. I will say that.

GLENN: It is fun. Then she says, it's just ordinary people. And we could say, oh, like us?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Probably shouldn't say that, but it is fun.

And then the third one...

VOICE: Who have made the difference. They've marched. They've bled. Yes, some of them have died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.

PAT: She seems to be saying --

GLENN: You might have to bleed and die on the streets for it. Is she calling for violence?

PAT: Right? Is that too much of a stretch? I'll tell you, that's a lot less of a stretch than we're targeting this district. A lot less.

GLENN: Yes.

JEFFY: That's for sure.

STU: Yeah. I just don't think it is, but...

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: And they have -- the left has the heritage of doing that.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: It was the Weather Underground that was the left. It was Malcolm X that was the left. It was the Black Panthers that was the left. So help us out here.

STU: Half of these people are marching in Che Guevara T-shirts, which was the left.

GLENN: Yes. Right. I mean, it's so very clear. And, again, we could spend time talking about that. And it feels good.

PAT: It does.

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."
