Glenn Beck said Friday on The Glenn Beck Radio Program that "the time has come for boycotts" and that "we must organize" on the conservative right.
Beck's comments came during a discussion regarding his belief that the progressive left controls the media through universities and his call for conservative voices — like Rush Limbaugh — in colleges.
"You have one professor who is saying, 'Hey, forget about the First Amendment. I need thugs here. I need muscle.' That's fine," Beck said, referring to a Mizzou professor's comments at a protest earlier this week. "But you can't have somebody like Rush Limbaugh stand up and say, 'Let me teach you about the First Amendment.' That's too controversial."
According the Beck, the conservative right is "going to lose" unless it reaches people through their finances or emotion, because the intellectual argument is not working.
"Where the intellectuals are, we're not allowed to even go," Beck said. "So you're not winning in the university, either. How do you win? ... You have to hit them in the wallet, and you have to hit them in the heart."
Beck insisted the only way to make progress is through boycotting.
"The time has come for boycotts," Beck asserted. "I'll show you the history of sitting back and doing nothing. It's loss after loss after loss after loss. ... We must begin to organize."
When the progressive left created the Tides Foundation and infiltrated corporations, Beck said, "we did nothing."
"What I'm trying to do is say, 'I will boycott you if you treat one side unlike the other,'" Beck said. "That's what needs to happen. They are shutting speech down. It's not going to get better from here with us being quiet."
