Zuckerberg's embarrassingly arrogant testimony proves he's the poster boy for young leftists

It was awkward. Funny. Occasionally tense. Sort of dramatic. Then awkward again.

I’m talking of course about the marathon hot-seat session that Mark Zuckerberg sat through in front of 44 Senators yesterday.

It was almost as entertaining as the movie about Facebook, The Social Network. Except it was twice as long, with worse lighting and way more elderly people. Oh, and no Winklevoss twins. Speaking of those guys, they must’ve been laughing it up and toasting to the fact they have all the dough, with none of the hassle.

There are a lot of discussion points after a four-hour Senate committee hearing. Like how much of it felt like a social media tutorial for senior citizens.

Or that Senator Durbin made probably the first decent point he’s made in his entire Senate career, when he asked Zuckerberg whether he’d like to share the name of the hotel he stayed in last night as a way of demonstrating Facebook’s failure to protect users’ privacy.

Then there was the grilling by Ted Cruz in which he listed examples of conservative content censored by Facebook. Zuckerberg didn’t deny Cruz’s allegation and claimed ignorance about whether Planned Parenthood ads were similarly censored.

But perhaps the most revealing moment of the whole four-hour session came when Republican Senator Dan Sullivan of Alaska began his questioning with a tip of his hat to Zuckerberg, the young man who went from tinkering in his Harvard dorm room to building one of the most valuable companies on the planet. Sullivan was marveling at Facebook as an example of the ultimate American dream. But Zuckerberg refused to agree with Sullivan’s “only in America” sentiment.

An utter lack of gratitude and humility.

Zuckerberg couldn’t bring himself to acknowledge the nation he was born into and the large role it played in making him a billionaire. He also felt the need to toss a bone to communist China. This trend, especially among the younger generation of leftist Americans, to blush at the idea that America might be the greatest nation on earth, is disturbing and, frankly, arrogant. Arrogant because it demonstrates an utter lack of gratitude and humility.

As Zuckerberg squirmed under the spotlight, I wonder if any part of him wanted to slink out of that room, crawl into a time machine, and travel back to 2003 to stop his young, naïve Harvard self from ever creating Facebook.

Life would just be a bit simpler that way.

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.
