Glenn: How Do You Fight These Companies That Control Your Information?

Everyone should take notice of Google’s decision to fire a software engineer for trying to offer input on the company’s diversity programs. Our society is quickly making it risky to have an opinion – and big corporations controlling our information pose a threat to free thought.

On Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck warned that the tech industry’s influence is growing in dangerous ways.

“We’re going to be controlled by four corporations,” Glenn said, listing Facebook, Google, Apple and Amazon. “How are you going to fight the person who has the keys to the library?” he asked.

Google is emphasizing “diversity,” but the company is ultimately preaching victimhood by telling women that they should feel oppressed and that they can’t do anything on their own.

“You’re so stupid you don’t even know you’re oppressed,” Glenn paraphrased. “Without us, you’ll never make it.”

GLENN: So because of a fear of leaks, Google has cancelled it's all hands-on meeting over the engineering fiasco. What is happening in tech? What is happening in Silicon Valley?

Jeffy, did you look up -- did you look up Abraham Lincoln for me today? Did you Google him? Can you bring that over to me? I want to see, what does Google say about Abraham Lincoln. I want everybody to Google right now "Abraham Lincoln." What does Google say about Abraham Lincoln?

Now, of course, they're going to give you the whitehouse.gov and the Wikipedia page. But over on the right, you'll see Abraham Lincoln, 16th president. Do you see that? This is the information provided by Google.

Abraham Lincoln was the American politician, lawyer, who served as the 16th president of the United States from March 1861, assassination 1865. Born February 12th, 1809. Height, 6-4. Assassinated, April 15th. Party, the National Union Party. Wait. What? What?

PAT: What?

GLENN: Huh? The National Union Party. I've not heard of the National Union Party.

You want to know the effects of Google, there it is.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: There it is.

Google is the portal for all information. When Google decides we're going to change that information, it's changed. And who are they -- who are your kids going to believe? You or Google?

PAT: Google.

GLENN: When I saw that yesterday, I thought, "There is no more important thing than the preservation of the documents that we are preserving right now at Mercury One. There is nothing more important."

You want to talk about clay pots. You remember 12, 15 years ago, I started hearing in my prayers, "clay pots." When it comes to history, clay pots. And I wondered, is it for our children? And the answer is yes. Is it for the preservation of those documents, like the clay pots, to me, refer to the Dead Sea Scrolls?

Once the Nicene Creed was adopted and everybody said, "This is Christology, this is what the Bible says, and nothing more," the Dead Sea Scrolls became very important. Quick, roll up everything you have and put them in clay pots and bury them deep in caves where no one will find them because they're all going to be destroyed. Because the early church wanted no dissent. And the way you have -- you have to destroy the documents.

That has never become more important than education for our children so they know it. But they have to know it with the actual documents. Because I'm sorry. I've never heard of the National Union Party. Can somebody tell me -- I'm going to Google -- I'm just going to click on it. National Union Party.

PAT: Yeah, it's the Republican Party. It's what they called themselves during that election. Yeah, it's the Republican Party.

GLENN: Yeah, the name used by the Republican Party.

Now, how many are -- how many are going to say the National Union Party?

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: So you know, correct. Correct. I've never heard it referred to as that.

PAT: I haven't either.

JEFFY: No.

GLENN: So I guess it's correct. Uh-huh.

Or is it one of those facts that most people -- because they don't do their own homework. They'll look down here, oh, Abraham Lincoln was not a Republican. He was not a Republican. The Republicans took over after Abraham Lincoln. That's exactly what's coming. That's exactly what's coming.

And you know who's going to do it? Not the stupid people. But the people who are in direct control of our universities. And? The people who control the portal of information.

Google should have every Libertarian, every classic liberal, and, quite honestly, every liberal, running for the hills.

They should be -- you want to talk about a takeover of a corporation and making the United States into just one giant corporation, I'll tell you, it's the circle. It's Apple. It's Google. It's -- what's the -- it's Amazon.

We're going to be controlled by four corporations. I know. That sounds like a conspiracy theory.

How are you going to fight the person who has the keys to the library? If the librarian says to your student, "The Road to Serfdom, that doesn't exist." Oh, you're thinking of the Road to Serfdom. The Road to Serfdom, that was, a nickname for Adam Smith's book Wealth of Nations because it actually just turns you into a slave. No, we don't actually have a copy of Wealth of Nations. It was discredited a long time ago. But I have some papers here that you can read about it. How hard is that?

Now, I'm obviously taking that to the nth degree. But may I just say that the nth degree has passed a long time ago. The nth degree has -- when I'm not leading the show with, did you see the picture of Chelsea Manning in the swimsuit on the beach?

PAT: And, no, fortunately I did not.

GLENN: Oh, no. In Vanity Fair, where they called her "a stunning American beauty."

PAT: No.

Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: I think you would agree, Pat.

PAT: You think so?

JEFFY: I think so, yeah.

GLENN: I mean, a stunning American traitor, sure. A stunning American beauty? Go ahead. Go to GlennBeck.com. The picture is up there.

STU: No thanks. No thank you.

GLENN: What the hell is this?

PAT: I have to see it.

GLENN: So don't tell me that anything is insane anymore. We're there. We're there.

We're so far over the cliff -- and, by the way, I actually -- when I saw that last night, I thought, "I've got to call Don. I've got to call Don Imus."

STU: Terrible instinct on --

GLENN: Yeah, no. No, no, no. That was my next thought: I wonder if Don would even say anything anymore. I wonder what the blowback would be for me to put Don Imus on, who says, "American beauty?" Fill in the rest of the Don Imus monologue.

You can't have that opinion anymore. Let me go back to Google for a second. You go back to Google, and you look at what -- why are women upset? Women are upset because, quite honestly, their new slave owners, the progressive movement, is telling them they're nothing without them.

Without this education, without us clearing the path, you don't -- you're so stupid, you don't even know you're oppressed. You're so stupid, that without us, you'll never make it.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

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.
