GLENN: Shawn, are you pro choice?

CALLER: Yes, I am.

GLENN: And you don't think, you don't believe that abortion is murder?

CALLER: I personally do. The reason I'm pro choice

GLENN: What the hell is wrong with this audience? Hang on just a second. I'm going to put you on hold so I'm not saying this to you, Shawn. Hang on just a second.

What the hell is wrong with this audience! It's okay if you don't believe abortion is murder! But if you believe abortion is murder, it's murder! I don't understand how you can make that leap!

I'm sorry. Let me go back to Shawn who I'm not going to argue with. So Shawn, you believe abortion is murder, but you should have the right to do that?

CALLER: I believe, I think we should have the right on the view of the fetus. I believe that there's

GLENN: Answer my question, please. Hang on. Let's not play loopholes here. Answer my question. You believe abortion is murder. Yes or no?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: But you also believe that people should have the right to do what you classify as murder if they choose to?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: If O.J. Simpson said it wasn't murder, would he have the right to do it?

CALLER: I didn't fully if it wasn't murder?

GLENN: No, no, no. No, no. If what you saw him do... allegedly.

CALLER: Allegedly.

GLENN: And you said, allegedly, that's murder, and you saw it as murder but he truly saw cutting someone's head off not as murder, would you give him the right to do it?

CALLER: You are saying that he says it's not murder. I still think that the people that get aborted, that have abortions think it's murder. I think they know what they're doing, just as O.J. Simpson allegedly.

GLENN: I'm not asking about them. I'm asking about you. Would you allow O.J. Simpson, would you say, well, you know what, he can do what he wants. I disagree with it, but he can do what he wants because he doesn't see that as murder.

CALLER: No.

GLENN: What is the difference?

CALLER: The difference is consciousness. Nicole Smith and Goldman, they were alive. They were conscious. They suffered at his hand. The fetus does not suffer during an abortion. I don't believe in late term abortions. I believe that you've got three months to decide. If you find out whether it's a boy or a girl, you no longer have the option. The reason I believe in pro choice is because that fetus will be euthanized without consciousness. I think of little Caylee Anthony. If she was aborted as opposed to murdered, I think it would have been better for her.

GLENN: Okay. So you're saying these are tough decisions that you can't make for everyone, right?

CALLER: That's absolutely true, yes.

GLENN: So is it okay to abort a child as they are doing now in Sweden for sex?

CALLER: No. I think abortion should be allowed but if you find out what the sex is, then you are off the list of allowed to have an abortion because

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Help me out, Shawn.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: Why? Why?

CALLER: Because I think the people that even consider having an abortion have moral problems anyway and if you bring that child to term and they keep that child, they will neglect it, they won't love it. You have children. You know how much love they need. You know they need to be nurtured. If they're not, Glenn, there's worse things than dying. I would rather

GLENN: So hold on just a second. So shouldn't it be that you are for the abortion? Because if they have the sex of the child, it's not the sex that they want, wouldn't it be better to what was it you said? Put them out of their misery or harmlessly or quietly or not letting them suffer, abort them? Wouldn't, to be consistent on your thinking here, shouldn't you be even more for people killing the child because it's not the sex they wanted?

CALLER: No. Because those people, they are going to love that child anyway. The way they think, they're going to that child is going to be in their arms like I've held my children, and you can't not love it.

GLENN: Didn't you just say, didn't you just say that somebody who is wanting that is so morally bankrupt that there are worse things than dying?

CALLER: Yes. But you are not listening to what I'm saying.

GLENN: I'm trying, but you are making my head I may have an aneurysm from trying, but go ahead.

CALLER: Well, I don't want to be the cause of that. I think that

GLENN: I might go out without any kind of suffering.

CALLER: Yeah, but I don't want the cause of it. I do want you, when you go out, to go without suffering.

GLENN: There are worse things than dying. This may be one of them.

Okay. Help me out. As I understand it I want to take a break and then you can come back and explain it, give you a couple of minutes to think.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: As I understand your position, abortion is murder. However, it's up to the individual to decide whether they murder or not. Plus, you're not allowing anyone to murder a fetus I'm using your language murder a fetus if they want to murder it for a sex reason, they wanted a female and instead they are going to have a male, and that's wrong because that child will be born but they'll have the child in their arms and they'll love it anyway. However, somebody who wants to abort a child, they'll abuse that child, neglect that child and there's worse things than dying? You try to think about that one for a second. You try to tie that altogether in one nice package for me that I can understand. Next.

(OUT 9:45)

VOICE: We know many of our universities indoctrinate our students with leftist ideas but three colleges stand out from all the rest as the worst offenders. Find out what they are on Page 115 of An Inconvenient Book by Glenn Beck, now available in paperback.

GLENN: I am fascinated, fascinated by our audience. I am asking people to just explain, if they're pro choice, just explain, in defense or against their position. In Sweden you can now abort a child based on sex. So in other words, you are pregnant with a girl, you want a boy, you can abort that child. Is that wrong? I'm not asking for anybody who is pro life. I got it, yes, it's wrong. I don't need the explanation of why it's wrong. You are already there: Abortion is wrong. I want pro choice people to tell me if that is right or wrong.

Now, we're on with, is it Shawn, Philadelphia. I've given you a couple of minutes to think and then explain so this all works for everybody's head.

CALLER: Okay. You ready?

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: Anybody that just wants an abortion, "I don't want this child, I want an abortion," their heart is ice and that's it. Anybody that says, oh, I want a baby but I want it to be a little boy and if it's a girl, I'll abort it. They have an ember of nurture in them because they want the child. They've just lost their way. They don't know where they're going. As soon as that baby is born and they see it, that ember of nurture will be fanned into an inferno and they can't resist it.

GLENN: Okay. So I just want to make sure. You say if you don't see the fetus as a child, your heart is ice, right?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: But if you see the fetus as a child but you want a certain kind of child, that means that your heart is softer?

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: Okay. So one is just exterminating because they don't see it as life at all, they don't see it as a child. They are just removing a tumor from them.

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: And that makes them ice. But somebody who sees that fetus as a child but wants a specific kind of child, so then wants to kill the child that they see as a child, that somehow or another makes them less ice like than the one who views the fetus as a tumor?

CALLER: In my opinion.

GLENN: Shawn?

CALLER: Yes?

GLENN: Do you still want to have when it was parroted back to you, do you want to say, "Okay, that doesn't work?" Because that's cool. Or do you just, do you stand by that?

CALLER: I still stand by that.

GLENN: Okay. All right, Shawn, God bless you. Thank you very much. Wait, wait, hang on just a second. One more question, Shawn. Are you there still?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: Are you making laws based on your opinion?

CALLER: Yes, I am. And to be perfectly honest with you, if it were my opinion, I would love to be benevolent dictator and there would be a lot worse consequences for people that have abortions.

GLENN: Okay, all right. Thanks, Shawn, I appreciate it.

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."
