Music and art pave the way for a cultural restoration

It’s been a long time since anything in the culture really represented something that you believe in. The most popular shows on television don’t reflect your values. Musicians don’t inspire with their art but appeal to the more base and repulsive elements of our culture (seriously, listen to the lyrics to some of the Top 40 songs). And, sadly, we haven’t done anything about it. The left now owns the culture, and conservative cultural icons can really only be seen in big numbers as part of the country music scene. Most conservatives in Hollywood and in music, with few exceptions, are left hiding in the shadows, keeping their viewpoints out of the spotlight.

Until now.

It’s time to get active, and while we are committed to changing our country and ourselves, we also MUST change our culture. But how do you do that? By creating and engaging with art, music, movies, and television that represent the things that you value.

There are artists out there with messages that need to be heard but have had doors slammed in their face. No more. We want to find those people who believe in America and make sure their message is seen and heard.

Over the next few months leading up to Restoring Love, we will be showing you new artists that we think should be stars but for one reason or another haven’t broken through to the mainstream. We think they’re great – and we are going to be giving them a platform to bring their art to you. Look for more details soon.

The other thing we want to do is make it easier for you to find art that you can enjoy. We’ve done some of that with GBTV and The B.S. of A., our first big step into comedy. But that’s not all.

Starting today, you’re going to see a lot more music integrated into all things “Glenn Beck”.

On GlennBeck.com, we are excited to start showcasing music using Spotify, a music streaming service that connects listeners with millions of songs. Using this tool, we will be showing you some of the music that we’re listening to and sharing music that we think inspires, uplifts, and celebrates goodness. And we’ve picked these songs not because they fall on the “right” or the “left” side of the aisle, but because they inspire us to create art and we hope they do the same for you.

Some of these artists may be ones you’ve heard of, but we hope that you’re discovering something new that you’ve never heard before as well. And, if you’re a musician, we hope to feature you on our list in the very near future.

So take a minute to listen to some of the music below that Glenn and his daughter personally selected for his debut list.

…and yes, of course music from Spider-Man is on there.

Enjoy!

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."
