GLENN: The NEA has just fired Yosi Sergant yet again. They have put the wrong head on the wall. The NEA, Deutsche any of the audio in your audio vault here, Pat, of the NEA? Dan, do you?

PAT: I think Dan has it.

GLENN: The audio from the NEA, when we first brought it up. Stu, see if you can do a search for NEA and me. I don't even know when it was, two months ago maybe, a month and a half ago when I was bringing up the NEA. It wasn't even that long ago. Four, five weeks ago? I don't even have a concept of time anymore. It was about, it was I think the same week that we did the Rockefeller Plaza stuff where they then claimed that I wanted people to blow up Rockefeller Plaza. I work in Rockefeller Plaza! I have always wanted to work at Rockefeller Plaza. I don't hate the art in Rockefeller Plaza. Come to my office and see the art in my office. I love the art of Rockefeller Plaza. These pinheads just cannot ‑‑ I mean, we're the dumb ones? Really? I guess concepts are just too big for them to get their arms around. Blow up art! That's all they hear.

The NEA, the NEA was having a conference call orchestrated by Yosi Sergant. On the conference call ‑‑ and we know this because somebody was on that conference call, taped it and tipped off bigHollywood.com. They tipped us off. And so what happens? In the conference call they are saying look, you know, we've got to be really careful with our language here, we're trying to figure out legally how we can do all of this stuff. But listen. You know, just maybe you want to do some art that, you know, makes the president look good and the administration and, you know, push healthcare and cap and trade. Can you work on some of that art? Sixteen out of the twenty people that were on that phone call have received grants from the NEA. That's your money. When I first brought it up, oh, he's on a Hitler hunt again; oh, look at Beck; oh, we're doing propaganda now. But now, last week Yosi Sergant steps aside. Keep the pressure on, keep the pressure on. What is it, the ‑‑ this is from the ‑‑ is this the Washington Post or what is this one? No, this is Politics Daily. Politics Daily, Washington in 60 seconds. In the news, Glenn Beck can put another head on his wall. Yosi Sergant, the former communications director for the National Endowment For the Arts resigned his job yesterday. The AP reports that Beck called out Sergant for suggesting to artists on an NEA conference call various ways they can help the Obama administration's goals including healthcare reform.

Okay. First of all, I think we need to start collecting heads. Do you notice that people are saying I'm collecting scalps, I'm collecting heads? I'm doing none of them. I'm not calling for the firing of any of these people. I'm calling for an investigation. I'm calling for answers from the White House. I don't want the people at the bottom end of the spectrum of ACORN fired. I want to look at the people at the top. Let's start looking at the people at the top of the pyramid. They're the ones controlling it all. Yosi Sergant? Yosi Sergant isn't the one who did this. Do you think Yosi Sergant is a guy who was just like, yep, well, I did the whole poster and, you know, I thought maybe I could do some more with the NEA. That's not what happened. We have ties and audio evidence of the tie directly to Barack Obama's best friend, Valerie Jarrett. She, everything including Van Jones, passed through her hands. Where is anybody talking about Valerie Jarrett? And by the way, I don't think Yosi Sergant is black, is he? Did I mistakenly go after a white guy? I thought he was black. I thought I was only targeting black people. How did that happen? You know what, I ‑‑

PAT: You want to take everything back?

GLENN: I want to take everything back. It is about the system. It's about the system.

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."
