GLENN: Is it curious to anyone that MSNBC and the mainstream media are nonstop on Mel Gibson's racism. Is this a surprise to anyone? I mean, I gave him the benefit of the doubt and I'm like, okay, the guy is completely out of control alcoholic, deep, deep psychological problems the first time. And then he went to rehab and I'm like, okay. Because you want to like Mel Gibson. You're like, okay, all right, maybe he's better now, and you kind of kept your fingers crossed but you wouldn't leave any of your friends or your children alone with him? And so you just kind of went along with it. Then the next outburst happened. I don't remember what it — oh, it was the guy when he was promoting this new movie and he just was like, just angry again. And I'm like, this guy is out of control. I haven't seen a Mel Gibson movie in a long time because you know who the guy is. Now there is this videotape of Mel Gibson where he has threatened to kill his girlfriend and he calls her the N word and I mean, he's a racist, he is a raging lunatic. Okay, so I got it, I got it. Now, how does this affect my life? See, the racism, the institutional racism that is happening now does affect your life. Once you have the message that he is a racist — because racism does exist and Mel Gibson is one.

STU: This is an unbelievable story. He's caught on tape saying the craziest crap I've ever heard.

GLENN: Didn't that happen last time?

STU: It's not shocking but still when a celebrity gets caught in something like that, I mean, jeez.

GLENN: Correct, correct. But running it 24/7 as opposed to —

PAT: The Black Panthers.

GLENN: "I want to kill all white babies."

STU: Yes, yes.

PAT: And maybe back to back. Maybe show racism in America, here's one side of it, here's the other side of it.

GLENN: Yeah. But not exclusively.

STU: No.

GLENN: Not exclusively. They are not running the Black Panthers story.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: And yet they are running the Mel Gibson story.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And the Mel Gibson story is a story, and he is a racist. I mean, there's no way to defend the guy. Which sucks because now all those great movies have been wrecked forever in my head. Not a good guy. But I don't understand the exclusivity of it.

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.
