Glenn has warned about the heavily funded, far-left efforts of George Soros for years. Now, Soros’ latest move is an attempt to suppress free speech on radio. Mike Gonzalez, Senior Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, tells Glenn that Soros is trying to help purchase 18 Spanish-language radio stations throughout the country because the ‘humongous inroads’ conservatives are making with Spanish speaking voters is causing the far-left to ‘panic.’ He details the two women leading this charge, the stations at risk, and why this is a ‘play for the ideological suppression of free speech.’ Transcript

GLENN: So we have Mike Gonzalez on. He is the author of BLM. The making of a new Marxist revolution. He is also a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation. Mike, welcome to the program. Glad you’re here.
MIKE: Thanks a lot, Glenn. It’s great to be on with you.
GLENN: Thank you. So we’ve been — we’ve been talking internally with you, over the last couple of weeks. On what Soros is doing on Hispanic radio stations. And I think this is really, really important. And I’ll explain why in a second. But I would like to hear your telling of what’s happening. And what the influence is.
MIKE: Well, it’s really very subversive. He’s buying — he’s financing a purchase of 18 Spanish language radio stations across the country. That is a third of — of the — of the — the audience, that we call Hispanic, is very varied. But it’s even greater. It’s an even greater percentage of those who listen to Spanish. Many Mexican Americans. Cuban Americans, just in English.
So it’s probably like 50 percent of Spanish speakers who turn to Spanish radio. Spanish radio is very important. And they’re […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
