On his Monday show tonight, Glenn Beck discussed the importance of cultural institutions like music and art in the fostering of a more pro-liberty, pro-American culture. Beck framed his segment as a follow-up to a previous monologue by guest host Dana Loesch on TheBlazeTV discussing how politics is "downstream from pop culture."
