GLENN: Okay. So now let's move to NBC. Last night in their continuing coverage on what's really important in America, Brian Williams was off the fluorescent light kick for just a second and moved right into Jimmy Carter's views of that all‑important issue, Joe Wilson. Is he a racist?

VOICE: A certain number of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington and at other recent events have featured racial and other violent themes, and President Carter today said he is ‑‑

GLENN: Hold it just a second. Hang on. Could you play that again?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: A certain number of signs. What number of signs? Were there four?

STU: Zero?

PAT: Was it a million?

GLENN: Was it a million? A certain number of signs.

PAT: I love that kind of journalism. Great.

GLENN: It's yellow journalism.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: Which, I don't know. Is that racist anymore? Am I making a comment about a race by calling it yellow journalism now? I'm not sure.

PAT: I don't know any yellow people. Do you?

President Jimmy Carter on Brian Williams

GLENN: No, I don't know. I don't know yellow people.

STU: SpongeBob.

PAT: SpongeBob? Okay, sorry. Stand corrected.

GLENN: SpongeBob? Thank you. Why do I hate SpongeBob so much? I'm clearly aware that yellow journalism has nothing to do with SpongeBob SquarePants or any other person that might be yellow but when do the facts matter anymore? So why is Brian Wilson ‑‑

PAT: You may be hearing from the association of jaundiced people later on today.

PAT: Can I tell you something? My son was born jaundiced. I hated him when he was yellow.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I hated him. All right. So Brian Williams goes on with his yellow journalism.

PAT: A certain number of times.

GLENN: Setting up people, as these tea party people as being violent haters.

REPORTER: A certain number of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Pause it. No, I just want to let you know because you can't see the video, they are not showing signs of that. By the way, do you hear people singing the Star‑Spangled Banner and patriotic songs in the background? Such hate mongers. And there's no signs that they're showing on television.

PAT: They are showing the signs. Just, none of them have anything to do with with race, hate, violence, nothing.

REPORTER: A certain numbers of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington and at other recent events have featured racial and other violent themes, and President Carter today said ‑‑

GLENN: What were the violent themes? I'm trying to think of one violent theme.

PAT: What was the racial theme? What was the violent theme?

GLENN: Oh, I remember. The NBC story that they did with the white guy carrying the gun that turns out to be a black guy because they just didn't, they just cut off his head and his arm in the shot.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Luckily our cameras were there and we had the same guy and the same shot and we showed that it was an African‑American.

STU: That is the point here, though, is that's why the wording is so careful of "Some." I mean, there are some.

GLENN: Of course there are.

STU: Of course there are. In every group there are idiots, always.

GLENN: I'm tired of the counting thing. University of Indiana did, you know, the computer thing where, you know, they measure the space and the ‑‑

STU: Oh, yeah?

GLENN: The number of people. You didn't know this?

STU: No.

GLENN: 1.7 million people.

STU: No.

GLENN: 1.7.

PAT: I didn't see any of that because I was... sailing.

GLENN: Computers? Why not just listen to the politicians count. Would you like some Grey Poupon?

PAT: Surely, on my yacht.

GLENN: So anyway, he's making this great case so far. And then he gets right to the expert of all race issues: Jimmy Carter.

CARTER: An overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward ‑‑

PAT: That's line a certain amount of signs, isn't it? An overwhelming portion.

CARTER: Of President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man.

GLENN: I didn't know that.

CARTER: African‑American.

GLENN: I wasn't aware of that. Did you know that?

PAT: That when you say "You lie," that just means ‑‑

GLENN: That means I hate black people.

PAT: ‑‑ you hate black people. I didn't know that.

GLENN: You know who I feel like? Haley Joel Osment: I hate black people. Anybody else was like, "You lied." I can just stand there and go, "He hates black people." That's what we should have. We should have just little Haley Joel Osment on the set everywhere just to watch the news: "He hates black people." That guy hates black people, too. I'm pretty sure he hates black people."

PAT: I didn't like what Barack Obama was wearing today.

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm opposed to the healthcare reform...

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm really ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm against ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I didn't say anything yet.

GLENN: I don't ‑‑ It's Pat talking. He hates black people.

PAT: I don't ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm not sure ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people. Look at the hate.

PAT: I'm just curious ‑‑

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, he's got a gun.

PAT: If only we could‑‑

GLENN: He's got a gun.

PAT: Unity is ‑‑

GLENN: He's got a bomb.

PAT: Diverse ‑‑

GLENN: Run, run.

PAT: More diversity.

GLENN: Help me. We're all in danger.

PAT: We need to be more tolerant.

GLENN: Help, help, help, help, help. Killer on the loose.

PAT: I'm out of here.

GLENN: Son of Sam.

GLENN: I don't think so.

GLENN: Son of Sam. He's the devil.

PAT: I'm not even speaking.

GLENN: My gosh. Jesus, is that you? Help me, please, please, please. The devil is right here. He's hating so many people. He's just killed the entire planet, for CO2.

STU: I don't know why Pat is lighting his bombs instead of setting them on timers or something.

GLENN: He hates black people. Stu ‑‑

PAT: That was clearly racist in nature, clearly, clearly racist.

GLENN: It's like a Klan meeting between these two.

PAT: It's time to put on those pointy hats. Who was the Georgia Republican, or Democrat? Hank Johnson.

GLENN: Yeah. Do we have Hank Johnson?

PAT: Another guy, yeah.

GLENN: Listen to Hank Johnson. This is great.

PAT: If we didn't censure Joe Wilson, here's what he thought.

JOHNSON: It does not help the cause of diversity and tolerance with his remarks.

GLENN: It doesn't help.

JOHNSON: If I were a betting man, I would say that it instigated more racist sentiment feeling that it's okay. You don't have to, you don't have to bury it now. You can bring it out, talk about it.

GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second. If he's a betting man, he's just lost. If I was a betting man, I would say that the false cries of racism on Joe Wilson, when there's absolutely nothing to back ‑‑ just back it up. Just back it up. You want to say, "Hey, I think this guy is a racist," well, then let's listen to the explanation. Let's ask: What is your evidence that he's a racist? What is your evidence? And let's do it with peace and love in our hearts. What is your evidence? I haven't heard their evidence. Has anybody even asked their evidence? I'd like to ask for the evidence. What evidence do you have that ‑‑ because maybe he is. I don't know. I've looked. We've had our researchers look. I haven't found any evidence. So let's hear it. Maybe he is. But that should be asked. Why would you say that? Because racism is real. And if you have evidence, well, then we should listen to it. And maybe we can convince them that they're either right or they're wrong. Maybe we can say, oh, my gosh! Oh, I hear your evidence now! Oh, I see, okay. You're right. Or... no, you're wrong and here's why. You see? That's maybe what we should do. It's kind of like, it's really interesting to me. When somebody cries fire, why do they cry fire? Because it's dangerous. Kind of like racism. It's dangerous, okay? So if somebody cries fire, how come we've just now entered a world where if somebody cries fire, nobody says, wait, wait, where? Where? You see smoke? Help me out. Where's the fire? How come we either just say, you liar! There is no fire! You should be thrown out of a window! Or... yeah! There's a fire in here and you started it! Why do we do that? Why do we do that? Why don't we reasonably and rationally say, hang on just a second, where's the fire? I don't any evidence of fire; where's the fire? No, don't you smell that? You smell the smoke? No, I don't ‑‑ oh, hang on just a sec. Yes, I do. Let's call the fire department and look and find out where this smoke is coming from. Why don't we do that anymore? Because it's really not about fire. It's really now, the cries of racism most times, not all times, some people have evidence and would like to have that conversation. When there are cries of racism, sometimes it's not because there's real racism. Sometimes it's because there's somebody milling around in the office, you know, that might figure out what's going on in the office and then might report it. And so what do they do? Fire! Fire! To get everybody out of the office. So they can continue to cover up what they need covered. And so you're all standing out in the sidewalk going, "Gee, fire." But you know what? After that person cries fire over and over and over again and there is no fire, maybe we should look at that and say, why do they keep crying fire? I'm just sayin'. If we really felt racism, which I do, if we really felt racism was bad and harmful, we would ask more questions about it when we heard those cries. And we decide which was the truth and then we do something about that truth.

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."
