GLENN: We have a guy named Roly on the phone. And Roly, is that your real name?

CALLER: Sorry?

GLENN: Is that your real name, Roly?

CALLER: Yeah, it's Roly.

GLENN: Okay, Roly, what's your last name?

CALLER: Roly (inaudible). That's why I keep it short.

GLENN: Now, Roly, here's the thing. You sent me a tweet, what was this, last week?

CALLER: Yeah, about four days, five days ago.

GLENN: And people ask me all the time, do you actually read the tweets? Yes, I read as many as I possibly can. And actually I read most of them and then I also get I have researchers looking for tips from all of the people that are tweeting. So if you are tweeting a story to me, a researcher looks at that absolutely and usually I'm the first one to see them. But you sent a song to me and I was laying in bed with my wife and we were just kind of laughing at some of the tweets. We don't I mean, there's a lot of laughing that happens in my bedroom but that's a different story. And you sent a song that you had done and I want to play just a little bit of it. Now, you've got to understand, America, that this is something that he did, you know, and recorded it on the Internet and then sent it to me. But here's a little clip of it.

VOICE: Sharp teeth and greedy grins, knock knock, is there anybody in? Either I'm a fool or you've got no answers. I press my voice against a megaphone. I want the truth and I know that I'm not alone. But no one is home, only cotton candy coated TVs. Some give you truth that's nice and sweet. Some give you truth that's caffeine free. Some give you pills that paralyze so you don't open up your eyes. I don't need no thought control. My tired ears are bruised and sore. The only thing my eyes can see are seven fathers on a lonely road.

GLENN: I want to make sure the seven fathers on the road, they are not like Satan, Stalin, Lenin, the seven explain the seven fathers.

CALLER: Seven fathers? Ben Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, James Madison, John J, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton. It's said to be a lot more than them, but those are the original seven.

GLENN: I love this song. I think this is absolutely fantastic. I want to introduce somebody who else, somebody else who is on the phone that I sent this song to this morning. Eric Chase, are you there?

CHASE: Yeah, I'm here.

GLENN: Okay. Roly, I don't know if you've ever heard of Eric Chase but Eric is part of my company. We have a sound design company through Eric and Eric is a guy who Lucas Sound I believe has actually approached you, Eric, and tried to get you to go to Lucas Sound. He is one of the best sound designers, one of the best producers in the country and I mean, I think anybody who has ever heard of Eric or heard of his talent, people line up to intern for this guy. And what I'd like to do is send you to his studio because he has a studio down in Florida. You are in Florida, right, Roly?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm in South Florida, Miami right now.

GLENN: Would you mind, what you'd like to do is have Eric produce this and really do this song right, have you sing it and play it and everything else but he can help do it with your permission and I'd like to see if we could get this to be a hit because I think this is an absolute hit.

CALLER: Yeah, and I would be very flattered if that happened.

GLENN: Okay. So are you cool with that, Eric? You heard the song

CHASE: It's a great song. I think it could be very powerful, you know, both in terms of the song and of the lyrics and also it could be kind of Sonically powerful in a very, you know, in a kind of a rocking fall out boyish kind of mode, you know. I mean, a lot of people in famous band or whatever, they just kind of go through the motions and even though they sing about love or they sing about whatever the case may be, they don't really sound like they're feeling what they are singing. I mean, and I think it's important in our generation that we connect with the youth.

GLENN: How old are you? How old are you?

CALLER: I'm 30 years old.

GLENN: You are 30 years old? You don't look 30 years old on YouTube. It's absolutely fantastic. And you are exactly right that we do. And if I may just say, dawg, a little pitchy in parts. But I think this is a hit and I think if we don't connect with the youth, we're in deep trouble, in deep trouble.

Paula?

PAT (Paula voice): I like his stage presence. I thought he was his eyes looked a little Sullen but I like that look because it adds a little grungy feel to it. You're wonderful.

GLENN: Good.

PAT (Paula voice): I'd also like to date you.

GLENN: (Laughing).

PAT (Paula voice): Is it possible?

GLENN: All right. Roly, it's or Roly, it's great. Now, wait a minute. There was something else. Stu told me about today. I haven't heard this yet. Stu told me about that you did a song with the listeners? What is this?

CALLER: So listen. Four years ago I wrote the song, I sent it to you, you posted a link on your Twitter account and then all of a sudden later here I am with 7,000 hits on the page and everybody's leaving these beautiful comments on YouTube. So I was mentioning to them live on Rolyomusic.com. I would like to thank you but I didn't know how to do it and they are like, well, let's come up with a creative way; you can write a song. And I go, I'll write a song if you guys help me write it. So I had a few people e mail me lyrics and then I would take lyrics from everybody's e mail and piece it together and to make the

GLENN: We'll play a little bit of we'll play a little bit of that next. Stand by.

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."
