GLENN: The private lives of young people are now so well documented on the Internet that our children may have to change their names when they reach adulthood, according to the CEO of Google. Think of this. Eric Schmidt who I believe is on several different advisory boards with the president of the United States, Eric Schmidt suggested that young people should be entitled to change their identity to escape their misspent youth which is now recording recorded in excruciating detail on social network sites such as Facebook. "I don't believe society understands what happens when everything is available." Mr. Schmidt said he believed that every young person will one day be allowed to change their name to distance themselves from embarrassing photographs and materials stored on their friends' social media sites. 55 year old also predicted the future. Google said the Google chief said Google will know so much about its users that the search engine will be able to help them plan their lives. That sounds good.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: I love a search engine that is currently I believe in eight countries under investigation for having too much information.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: And spying on people and

PAT: But they will help you plan your life?

GLENN: They will help you plan your life.

PAT: Well, because they have

GLENN: Quote, they will know so much about you.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That they will be able to help you plan your life.

PAT: Do they have an alternate name for us, too, if I want to

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Do they have an Islamic name picked out for me?

GLENN: No, I don't think this is

PAT: If you tie this together, you think about this story we were doing earlier on Islam.

GLENN: Why do you do this?

PAT: And maybe you'll have to change your name to an Islamic name.

GLENN: See, why do you do this?

PAT: Is that possible?

GLENN: Now you make it ridiculous when all the name they will suggest is 11.773.8.

STU: It's true, though. I mean, they had I had an incident with Facebook this week and I had a personal like, you know, page when everyone was joining Facebook I tried it out for a little bit and I hated it. I mean, I despise social networking. You know, I have a page, you know, fan page and everything, which is fine. But as far as the personal stuff, like I just don't want it. So I discontinued this account. Two years ago, two years ago I signed it off. And that's after taking every privacy thing that they gave you and saying don't let anyone see it. I used to get complaints all the time like, why do you even have a page? There's nothing on it. Because I don't want anything on it. So yesterday I get e mails from everyone that used to be a friend of mine from two years ago when I discontinued the account saying, hey, what is this? And it's a forward from someone saying that I've been sending them advertisements for free iPads.

PAT: Man. Really?

STU: So someone got my account, reactivated it after two years of dormancy, if that's the word, and then made it, all my friends were still on it, all my pictures were still on it. I discontinued this account. All the posts were on it from then. All of it was still recorded from two years ago when I turned it off and then it took me, it must have been an hour to go through every privacy setting again and turn it all off again. It's insanity. I wouldn't put anything on that site that I didn't want everybody to see. It's it is insanity.

GLENN: I want you to

STU: They just had a report of 100 million users, some of their private information being spread around the Internet. Forget it.

GLENN: I want you just to I want you just to listen to this and think about this now in a different way. You've got to look at this from Stu's point of view and Chertoff and Ashcroft's point of view and my point of view that, you know, there's just so information is everywhere and you just do not want to engage in any of it. But listen to this again with a nontechnology concern. Eric Schmidt suggested that young people should be entitled to change their identity to escape their misspent youth which is now recorded in excruciating detail on social networking sites such as Facebook. When I read this, it wasn't about Google. It was about changing your name and identity.

Last night my kids and I, we were in bed and we were talking about we were talking about how Mommy and I had agreed with them to be their parents and they chose us as parents and they came down and we talked about Raphe and the special way that he came through adoption and the girl that carried him inside and how special she was and all of this stuff. We had this conversation last night. And I don't remember how it led there oh, I remember. I said, that's why Daddy and Mommy pray so much to try to remember what it is we promised and try to remember what we're supposed to do because we all have a job to do. We all have something that we're supposed to do, and you're in this family for a reason. And so you will carry on not only the things that I have taught you and the things that you have learned from Mom and Dad but also your name, you have to watch because our names are all connected. And so we be careful because I don't want somebody to think bad things about you because of me and vice versa.

Our children will be disconnected from their heritage. Our children will be taught that your family this is the ultimate destruction of the family and our heritage. If you read the book The Coming Insurrection, one of the chapters is destroy the family and destroy the family unit. Well, I'm sorry, but your name means something. It does. When you give up your name, you give up a lot. Does this bother anyone that in a cavalier way the CEO of Google is saying that they've got to really kind of look at this for the future, to be able to make it easy and legal, easy and legal for people just to change their names to escape their past. Their past is important. I mean, it's you don't know about progressives because they change their name! Our past and our history is important. And now we have a guy who's in the Obama administration talking about, hey, we're going to have to do that. Where else have we heard it?

MICHELLE OBAMA: And Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices, we are going to have to change our conversation, we're going to have to change our traditions, our history. We're going to have to move into a different place.

GLENN: If you lose your name, who are you? If you lose your traditions and your family, who are you? How do your children know who they came from?

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?
