Picture sent in from Curt

GLENN: Let me go to Curt in Pittsburgh. Hello, Curt.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, the story that happened this weekend at the McCain/Palin rally in Pennsylvania, we have a 5 year old daughter with Down Syndrome and we've been fans of Sarah long before she came on the national scene and we drove down to the rally. We took our daughter Chloe, who's 5, down there. My wife made a sign that said "We love kids with Down Syndrome" and we managed to be in a position down there that when the bus pulled in, Sarah and Senator McCain could see us and they waved and had thumbs up when they saw had your daughter and they saw our sign. So we moved around and positioned ourself just so we could wave to them on the bus and when the bus was pulling out. And when the so we were standing there and a secret service agent came over to us and said, can your family come with us? And I said, well, I didn't pay those parking tickets but

GLENN: Okay, okay, maybe not all of the income tax.

CALLER: Right. So we went up the hill and we were taken right inside the inner circle and Senator McCain, Cindy McCain, Sarah Palin, her husband and her family were all there and they walked over and just greeted us and thank you for coming. And Sarah walked right up and she hugged me. That's one of my claims to fame now. And

GLENN: She's hot, isn't she? She's hot. I mean, let's be

CALLER: She is a beautiful woman, right.

GLENN: She's a beautiful woman.

CALLER: She's a beautiful woman.

GLENN: She is.

CALLER: She immediately asked if she could hold our daughter and I actually sent you and Stu pictures of this.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I know Stu has been busy fielding calls from Clippy 4019er.

STU: The other thing I'm doing is looking up pictures of Sarah Palin. So I can break from the

GLENN: You know what, let's put these in the put these in the web in the newsletter, too. You get these for free if you are a subscriber to the free newsletter.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: Okay. So how long did you spend with her?

CALLER: We spent about 10 minutes, Glenn. What was really neat, too, her son who had Down Syndrome was on the bus and her daughter brought her son off the bus. He was napping. And our little daughter Chloe walked over and kissed him right on the head. It was just a magical moment. I said just solidified to me that here's a ticket that just embraces life, embraces all the possibilities and embraced the average people and we're average people. I work with children with disabilities. And they were my son who's 9, Senator McCain asked me if he wanted to see the bus. And just as down to Earth type of people. You could have gone and had pizza with them. They were just as kind as can be.

GLENN: So what is the were you a McCain supporter before?

CALLER: Well, I'm a very conservative evangelical Christian and I totally admire John McCain. Yes, I was. I really, I admire the man. He is a man of character. He has served his country and I even said to him when I had a chance to talk to him, I said, Senator McCain, we are here today attending this rally because of the service of you and men like you, great men like you who are the heart of this country and as you said earlier, they're sending their sons to protect the rights and freedoms that we have. And they are a blessing.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And they are the best they are the hope for this country and they are the people, embrace the possibilities of the greatness of our nation and I just wanted to share that with you and it was an incredible experience. As we were walking down the hill, Glenn, I was talking to my wife, what just happened up there. It was pretty neat.

GLENN: All right, Curt, hang on just a second.

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."
