‘Dad Murdered Democracy’? Activists Harassed FCC Chair’s Family on Thanksgiving

Did you enjoy Thanksgiving weekend with your family? Be glad that protesters weren’t outside your door posting threatening messages about your children.

Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, said pro-net neutrality activists targeted his home in Virginia and left a chilling sign that read “They will come to know the truth. Dad murdered Democracy in cold blood.”

On today’s show, Glenn explained why net neutrality regulations from the Obama administration don’t really help everyday Americans. He also condemned protesters who think that invading someone’s holiday with loved ones will further their cause.

“Attacking a family is not activism,” Glenn said. “This is terrorizing a family.”

GLENN: They will come to know the truth: Dad murdered democracy in cold blood. That was what was written on a sign outside of the home of the FCC chairman over Thanksgiving weekend.

He -- he should have been home with his family. The chairman of the FCC enjoying the holiday, just enjoying it, but instead, he was subjected to protesters with apparently nothing better to do than stand outside of his home with harassing signs and send pizzas to his door every hour. Which actually sounds good. I just want to point that out.

That's kind of a good deal.

STU: Best protest ever.

GLENN: Really is. But who does this on a Thanksgiving weekend?

Apparently, people who are insanely mad that the chairman of the FCC said in order to terminate most of the net neutrality regulations set in place by the former FCC commissioner.

Attacking -- attacking a family is not activism. This is terrorizing a family.

I would bet that the protesters didn't even really understand net neutrality in the first place.

Net neutrality does not guarantee a free and open internet for all. The regulations don't benefit the average man. It is always like this.

The regulation was drawn up by Google. They benefit Google. And that's about it.

Enforcing net neutrality does the exact opposite of what the proponents claim. It results in an internet where a handful of large corporations have access to peering agreements with the fast lane, and the rest of us are subjected to far fewer options.

So here's some free advice before you go out and protest somebody, before harassing a family, you should know something about the subject that you're protesting. You know, consider staying inside and researching the topic and having an intelligent conversation over turkey with your family and friends.

But if you ever find yourself in this situation and you want to send free pizza to a home, you can send it to my house.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.
