GLENN: What does this ACORN T‑shirt make you feel and why does it make you feel that way?

CALLER: Well, just, I was very, very surprised when I turned it on this morning and saw you wearing it because they're destroying our country and it just, you know, it breaks my heart.

PAT: You know what Bev needs is a behavioral psychologist.

GLENN: Some sort of behavioral ‑‑

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Hang on just a sec.

PAT: Someone who can sit with her in her living room.

GLENN: Oh, wait, wait, wait, I have one. From Washington representative Brian Baird introduced a bill yesterday, H.R. 3247 that will establish a social and behavioral science research program. What would the program do? It would be set up to identify and understand social and behavioral factors that influence energy consumption to promote the utilization of the results of social and behavioral research to improve the design, development and demonstration and application of energy technologies policies and programs, and it's going to create a director of social and behavioral research.

STU: That would be helpful.

GLENN: Wouldn't that be great?

STU: That would be great for us.

GLENN: Because then we can find out what's going on with Bev and the way we can get Bev to stop with the hatred of ACORN. Just because they're different than you, Bev.

CALLER: See, I don't believe anything I hear out of any of them.

STU: Stop screaming, Bev.

CALLER: I got an e‑mail from someone this morning and it had a newspaper article from Russia.

PAT: Please use your indoor voice, Bev.

CALLER: Oh, I'm sorry. I just get very heated when I talk about it.

GLENN: See, there's the anger we were talking about. I mean, you let these kooks like Bev talk and they immediately hang themselves.

STU: Sounds like a Bev problem.

GLENN: I mean, here she is. All right, go ahead, Bev, tell us about Russia.

CALLER: See, there's a newspaper article in Russia and it's verified by Snopes how they are making fun of the United States, how we're just letting our democracy slip away and not doing a thing about it and that's just ‑‑

GLENN: No, that ‑‑ Bev, can I tell you something?

CALLER: Sure.

GLENN: You know what article I'm talking about? How old is that article, Pat? Do you remember? That was when I was ‑‑ I gave that speech at the capitol, when was that?

PAT: About three months? Three months ago?

GLENN: That's ‑‑ Bev.

CALLER: Oh, that's old news?

GLENN: That's old news.

STU: Tired old arguments of the past.

GLENN: Why are you bringing up the tired old arguments of the past?

CALLER: I'm sorry, that's my mistake.

PAT: We're talking social justice now.

CALLER: See, I guess I'm a former drinker as well. So maybe I should have a beer and I'll feel better about everything.

GLENN: There we are. See, we ‑‑ if we all just have some beers, then it will all start making sense to us.

CALLER: Oh, there you go.

GLENN: Thank you very much, Bev.

CALLER: Thank you, Glenn. Have a good ‑‑

GLENN: You know what? Look, America, you have to learn this lesson. It's going to be very hard to become sane. See, you're insane right now. You're crazy. May I just quote Winston Smith writing in his diary? With the feeling that he was speaking to O'Brien, he was setting forth this axiom. He said freedom is the freedom to say that 2 plus 2 make 4. If that is granted, all else follows. And then later Winston, for his own good was being administered a therapy session and he's crying out and he says, how can I help it? How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? 2 and 2 are 4. And he starts to cry and then the person who's just there to help says, sometimes, with Winston, sometimes they're 5. Sometimes they're 3. Sometimes they're all of them at once. You must try harder. It's not easy to become sane. That's from the book 1984. We don't understand yet, you see. You're insane. Gee, where have I read that about me? Oh, in all of the media, especially any media owned by General Electric. That's weird. General Electric? Why would the media, why would the media arm of General Electric, CNBC, NBC, why would they try to paint me in any other way? Why would they do that? Sure, sure I am a big competitor but, wow, so are you saying that just for money a competitor will try to destroy, just for the small amount of money that GE would make if they took me off of Fox News? Is that enough money to make the system, from all of MSNBC yesterday and then the Today Show and the Tonight Show. What would be their motivation for doing that? Unless maybe GE is just an extension of this administration. Unless GE is just somehow or another a propaganda arm of this government. Only because they can't make a ‑‑ they will make a small amount of money destroying me, but if they're in bed with the federal government and the administration, well, my gosh, they're in aerospace. They can continue to get all these great contracts. They're in green energy. That's fantastic. They're in broadcast you know it's pretty dicey right now if you're in broadcast. Look at all of the great things that they can accomplish for the good of humanity, for the good of the collective. Oh, you know, I've been insane, I guess. I have been insane.

STU: Do you see what's happening here? He's starting to sound like Bev, the caller.

GLENN: No, I'm waking up. That's why I'm wearing the ACORN shirt.

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."
