Political correctness is becoming wildly unpopular on all fronts

I'm always fascinated by history. It really is amazing how, if you trace something back far enough, you can get at the root cause for why it exists today. For example, have you ever wondered where the term Political Correctness came from? I'll come back to that in a second.

A recent study called 'Hidden Tribes: A Study of America's Polarized Landscape' was highlighted on Wednesday in The Atlantic. More specifically, how the majority of Americans hate political correctness. 80% of America believes PC is quote, "a problem in our country."

And the further you break down the numbers, the more revealing it gets. This one won't surprise you. 97% of Conservatives have a serious issue with political correctness. But this one might… The majority of middle of the road Democrats also hate PC. 61% of them to be exact. So the great divide between the middle left and the middle right might actually be closer than you think.

But there's one group in this country that absolutely loves political correctness… Progressives. The study found that 70% of progressives on the Left fully support "politically correct" language. What's amazing is that this small minority within America has successfully dominated the narrative in this country. Think about it. Progressives aren't even the majority on the Left or in the Democratic Party, but they've somehow hypnotized the entire country into believing that everything we say or do has to be looked at through the lense of political correctness.

The youth? 74% hate PC. Asians? 82% hate PC. Hispanics? 87% hate PC. These numbers go all across the board, but progressives - a tiny minority - have got us all following their lead.

"Politically correct" was first coined in the late 1920's, not by progressives… but in the Soviet Union.

And why are progressives so enamored with all that is PC? It's simple. To shut down any kind of debate or public conversation that threatens their agenda. And progressives didn't even invent this strategy, they stole it. And this is where I go back to history. Who did the new American Left steal this strategy from? "Politically correct" was first coined in the late 1920's, not by progressives… but in the Soviet Union. It was used by the Communist Party when anyone that had expressed a pro Capitalist viewpoint needed correction to the party line.

Let's say a member of the politburo was caught reading Adam Smith… that was politically incorrect. Maybe they expressed favor for privatizing a state run business… very politically incorrect. The Marxists knew that these ideas might actually be factually correct, but they were not politically correct.

When you finally raise the progressive curtain and reveal all their secrets, it all begins to make sense.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.


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.
