March to Communism: 'Fairness'

GLENN: I mean, let me tell you what is coming, okay? There is two things that are coming and this is why you have to understand history, or we are destined to repeat it, two things that are coming. One, the fairness doctrine is coming back and I firmly believe this. For those of you who are long-term listeners of this show, you will enjoy this next sentence. I was in bed last night with Tania and we were talking about the fairness doctrine.


 DAN: This poor woman.


 GLENN: She brought it up. She started it. She said to me -- I said, honey, I've got to do X, Y and Z, blah, blah, blah. And she said to me, Glenn, when is this going to be enough? When is this going to end? And I said, honey -- because we were talking, you know, ten years. And I said, honey, I think it could end quickly. I said, I think we may only have about two years left for me to be able to be in the radio business. I've done this job for 30 years. I think I may have about two years left. And she said, well, what does that mean? Are you going to say something stupid? And I said, no, no, I don't think talk radio will exist as we know it in two years, and I'm not -- you know, I'm not Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh will survive, but voices are going to be weeded out and cut in half.


 I told you yesterday about Barack Obama's fairness doctrine where he wants to balance the media, where he wants to make sure that those who own the nation's audio spectrum understand their responsibilities. He wants to bring back basically the doctrines of the 1930s. Why were these put in in the 1930s? They were put in the 1930s for a reason, because the New Deal was there and there were enough voices saying we can't do the New Deal. The New Deal is what actually lengthened the Depression. It was World War II that brought us out of the Depression, not the New Deal.


 Now I open up the paper today. Michelle Malkin has a story, the Junk Attack on Talk Radio. You have Republicans that are now coming out. Phil Gramm is coming out and saying these talk radio people say, "They have principles but it's their ego and their power. They're well known and they're used to having power." Really? I'm the one used to having power, Senator? I am? "They're all talking junk now. There's a ton of them, Republicans that are talking junk and talking about, we've got to stop these guys who have all of this power." I don't understand how I have all of this power and yet, you know, all of the news networks are telling us that talk radio has no power because we couldn't stop John McCain. It doesn't make any sense. What I have is an opinion and if people don't want to listen to my opinion, they can go away. And as they go away, my ratings will go down and I can't sell the sponsorships and I will go out of business. That's the way it works in America. But not according to these senators. Now Republicans as well. Why? Because talk radio did not follow my advice, but they came to their own conclusion as well a couple of years later. You've got to dissever yourself from the Republicans. They're taking you to the same damn place. Both sides of the aisles are the enemy. Both sides of the aisle are the ones who are lying to you. Find the Republican or the Democrat or the independent that won't lie to you and vote for that person. Don't go into these parties. Well, that's too dangerous.


 Barack Obama, if he sweeps, or John McCain if he gets in, neither one of them. Barack Obama has a fairness doctrine in his platform. John McCain has every reason to hate my guts, Rush Limbaugh's guts, okay? Has every reason to do it. These Republicans now see talk radio as a liability because they no longer see us in their pocket. They no longer see -- they now are saying that our audience, Republicans, that our audience, nothing but zombies. You're not a zombie. You're a thinking human being. You come here because you want information. If you take my information and you use it as fact and walk away and go, yep, that's the way it is, you're a moron, and I don't think you're a moron.


 So that's the first level. I think talk radio, I think voices are going to be silenced after this next election. I hope I'm -- believe me I hope I'm wrong, my accountant hopes I'm wrong. Everyone I know hopes I'm wrong. And maybe I am. Had a pretty good track record so far on kind of seeing -- some things I'm wrong on, big picture stuff. Disagree, Dan?


 DAN: This one is tough to disagree on especially because -- no, you definitely have a great track record, first of all. No doubt about that. That's pretty clear. But it's tough to disagree on this fairness doctrine thing because look at -- they are just going to have a green light, whether it's Obama or somehow Hillary.


 GLENN: Green light.


 DAN: Green light, Democratic congress.


 GLENN: There will be no opposition.


 DAN: And even McCain, even McCain would be with that.

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?
