Glenn: "We cannot be the people we've allowed ourselves to become."

Glenn’s trip down to NASCAR’s Daytona 500 was peppered with Hollywood stars, directors, and music performers. But perhaps the person Glenn was most excited to have met was the Rev. Billy Graham. Glenn described their meeting on radio this morning.

Last Summer, Glenn had wanted to meet with Rev. Graham as part of his planning for the 8/28 rally. According to Glenn, Billy Graham was probably the only other person who had tried to do something on the scale of what Glenn was hoping to accomplish. However, according to Glenn Rev. Graham and his team did not feel that “the time was right.”

“Two weeks ago as I have been struggling with some ideas and some things that I am working on for the future and I am trying to get clarity again, I thought of Billy Graham.  When the phone range and they said the Reverend feels it's time to meet, I met with him.  We had an hour scheduled.  It lasted three hours,” Glenn said.

“I didn't tell you about it in advance out of respect for him,” Glenn said.

“He is a very clear individual.  He's slowed down quite a bit.  He's now 91.  You have to be pretty close to him for him to be able to see you.  His eyes are going and his hearing is gone.  So I had to talk to him like I used to have to talk to my grandfather.  But he is of sound mind and a man of great peace.”

“We spoke of the things to come and where we were in history, and I will tell you it is for him to say what he wishes to say.  I will tell you what my impressions were walking away and what I felt walking away.  These are not his views but mine.”

“We cannot be the people we've allowed ourselves to become.  We must be our highest self.  We must get ourself into shape spiritually, morally, physically, temporally.”

“That America is going to find it more and more difficult to do the right thing even though we have, I fear, done the wrong thing for too long.”

“We have adopted "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" and the reason why we've done this is because we now see what is happening in Libya.  You take Libya and a brutal dictator who we don't like, you take him out and you destabilize the whole world.  We now know that that isn't going to work.  But how many things in our society have been propped up that would have been a lot easier to fix had we allowed them to fail 20, 30, 40, 50 years ago.  How many of us are living on the edge?”

“In sitting there and speaking to Reverend Graham, I thought, here is a man who has been all around the world.  Here's a man who has seen it all.  Here's a man who's done profound good.  One of the first to stand in Alabama as a white preacher and stand and say we must come together.”

“My message to you is we must come together.  Evil has ‑‑ the left has stood ‑‑ is standing now with profound and clear evil and they've connected from evil all the way to the average Democrat and everything in between.”

“And we are sitting here arguing with each other over, well, how do you mean that exactly?  Well, what exactly do you believe in religion, et cetera, et cetera?  While none of us can sacrifice what we believe as an individual, we must stand together with those who believe in God and that God endows each individual with the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

“That this is not a video game.  This is not a movie.  This is not like anything you've ever encountered in your life before.  The world is changing, and because of that we must change as well.  Darkness is growing.  But the shadows can only grow darker as the sun grows lighter."

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
