GLENN: Now, I want you to hear this audio. This is a mother crying about her son

PAT: Two of them. Two of them.

GLENN: It's sad. Now it's a double whammy. Now it's twice as sad.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Two children that did not have access to broadband. Here it is.

LOCKLEAR: My name is Rhonda Locklear. I'm from Pembroke, and I'm a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina.

PAT: Did you get that? She's a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina.

GLENN: I love the Lumbee tribe.

LOCKLEAR: I have two children and like any mother, I want the best for my boys.

PAT: Like any mother.

GLENN: Don't make fun of her.

PAT: I'm sorry.

LOCKLEAR: Jacob, my oldest, is a transfer student to UNC Pembroke and Isaac is in the eighth grade at Pembroke middle school. Like most families across the state who either don't have access to high speed Internet or who can't afford it, we were stuck with dial up service.

GLENN: Oh, no! Stop it!

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: No, no!

PAT: Stuck with this, until just two months ago!

GLENN: No, I won't

PAT: Dial up!

GLENN: I will not hear.

PAT: Dial up!

GLENN: I will not hear of

PAT: In this country!

GLENN: In the richest country in the world!

PAT: Best, neatest, most amazing, not the best but the

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: Neatest?

GLENN: No, one that has made so many terrible mistakes.

PAT: Mostly crappy, technologically superior, though.

GLENN: Not superior.

PAT: Not superior?

GLENN: Not superior.

PAT: To anyone wet.

GLENN: Only superior because we rape the rest of the world.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: But we don't we have somebody that has dial up. Hang on. It gets worse.

PAT: In this country.

GLENN: No, it goes no, listen.

PAT: Hang on.

LOCKLEAR: I feel that this has put my family, my sons in particular

PAT: Get this.

LOCKLEAR: at a severe disadvantage.

STU: No, no.

LOCKLEAR: Isaac depends on the Internet to complete his assignments for school. He often uses the internet to work on reports or often at times to just do research.

STU: Research, that's it!

LOCKLEAR: I watch him struggle with the dial up service and observed him get frustrated.

GLENN: Stop, stop! I watch him struggle with the dial up service!

PAT: As he tries to download the pages. Come on!

GLENN: I can't... take it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: Can I tell you something?

GLENN: Where is my grandfather?

PAT: You and I were together when we struggled with the pages downloading when we had 14.4 modem? Remember that?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: (Making staticy noises). And at that radio station, I think AOL was about the only thing going and you would start loading a page and you'd leave and you'd come back in 15 minutes when it's done.

GLENN: Now imagine, imagine trying to do

PAT: Imagine it now trying to do a project.

GLENN: Why are you making fun of her?

PAT: I'm not.

GLENN: Yes, you are.

PAT: I'm not.

GLENN: Yes, you are.

PAT: I'm trying to empathize with her. I can't even empathize.

STU: I can't even tell when it's the audio or when it's him, it's so

GLENN: I'm trying to just wonder where our grandparents went to. Did where our grandparents go?

STU: Well, they had DSL.

GLENN: No, no. No, no.

PAT: We're in library deserts now.

STU: At T3.

GLENN: I mean where did our grandparents go and they left us without a boot in the ass. Because there's a few people that need some of those boots in their ass. And you know what? Quite honestly she may be one of them.

PAT: May? I'm sorry. Did I hear the word "May" come out of your mouth?

GLENN: I mean, can you imagine? Can you imagine if you would have gone at least maybe my grandfather was different. If I would have gone to my grandfather and said, grandpa, I'm just struggling with this dial up service.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: He would have said

PAT: A guy who grew up in the Depression.

GLENN: "Get the hell away from me and go do your homework." That's what he would have said.

PAT: Pick up an encyclopedia. There are things called books.

GLENN: How about a library? I don't know how far she is from a library but how about a library?

PAT: She might be in a library desert.

STU: Or an Internet cafe desert.

PAT: Right.

STU: She could easily in an Internet cafe and you are making fun of her.

PAT: She could easily be in an Internet cafe desert.

GLENN: I don't think any of this is necessary.

PAT: You want to hear the rest?

GLENN: Yes, go ahead.

PAT: It's good. It will get even more horrific.

LOCKLEAR: Because he cannot move around on the Web like he likes.

GLENN: No, not like he likes.

STU: He likes to go around on the Web quickly and he could not do that.

PAT: He could not surf the porn sites that he likes to surf.

LOCKLEAR: Seemingly easy assignments took him hours to complete.

GLENN: Hours.

STU: Pictures of Megan Fox took him hours to download.

PAT: One naked lady took him an hour and a half to have it load on the Web.

GLENN: I don't think this is necessary.

LOCKLEAR: It is hard to watch. Isaac got very upset.

PAT: When all he could see was her forehead.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

PAT: And he was waiting and waiting for the chestal area to appear.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: And it took hours at a time for that Web to download it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: I wept as I watched him try to drool as those pictures would not load onto that page. I love it when people can make

GLENN: Do not, please

PAT: five syllables out of a monosyllabic work.

GLENN: Do not encourage him. This is not helpful.

STU: You are right. I'm sorry.

GLENN: I'm putting it

PAT: Once it started loading her feet from the bottom up and he waited four and a half days until the knees appeared. By the time it got to her hips, he realized she was in a miniskirt and he was so upset, he wept as I did as well.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

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.
