The Masks are coming off - radicals are revealing themselves even more

Progressives really don’t seem to like the way that America works, and they are on a mission of change. But they don’t just want a change from the Bush years, they really do want to fundamentally change the way the country works. On radio, Glenn looked at several examples of the fundamental transformation Progressives are pursuing in this country.

Andy Stern has written an op-ed that calls for a change in checks and balances at the federal level. “In the midst of the transformative change of globalization and this third economic revolution, those layers have become an impediment to making the changes necessary to keep America competitive in the world economy.  Today America crawls along as a snail's pace,” Glenn read from Stern’s piece.

“He is actually now beginning to lay out the argument that the checks and balances system of the Constitution is no good,” Glenn said.

“Most frequent visitor to the White House when he was with SEIU,” Pat pointed out.

“But I'm sure the President doesn't believe any of this nonsense,” Glenn said.

With all of these stories coming out, Glenn wondered if the Justice Department would ever stop and take a look at what the union leaders have been calling for.

Brian Becker, another progressive leader with the Party for Socialism and Liberation, has been saying that nonviolence isn’t the answer to achieving their goals.

“The people in Venezuela and the people in Cuba and the people everywhere who want to be free is build a revolutionary party, an organization and movement in the United States that can fight and defeat U.S. imperialism,” he said.

“We're a party of activism.  We believe that without action, without struggle, the idea of Marxist politics or socialist politics or progressive politics is, in fact, very empty,” he continued.

“ Notice how he ties all of those together,” Pat said. “Marxism, socialist, progressivism, all tied in there together by this guy.”

Becker continued, “We're not a discussion group.  We're not discussing issues because they're interesting.  We are discussing things because we want to go in to struggle against oppression.  Promote the liberation which operates out of a Marxist framework and a revolutionary social framework to answer the larger question that if it wasn't just oil, what made this war happen?”

“In two weeks in front of the White House and around the country demonstrating and some people aren't going to be demonstrating because they're against any war.”

“We have George Washington on our dollar bills.  He led an armed struggle against British colonialism.  We're taught that that was a good thing, even though it was violent.  In the case of the U.S. Civil War, the bloodiest war for the United States in its history, 650 or 700,000 people died in the U.S. Civil War, but the outcome of that war was the end of chattel slavery as a legal institution.  That was the progressive outcome.  The destruction of the system of slavery was a positive and progressive development.  The fact that there had to be massive violence does not take away all from the fact that it was a progressive development.” Becker said.

“It is amazing to me how everybody, of course, was looking so hard for the violent rhetoric from Americans.  We have it in spades.  We have it in spades.  Name the other show!  Name the other show in America!  Name it!  That has built the case all the way along, that has shown who's involved and how it's coming down and showing the violence,” Glenn said.

‘Where are the hearings in Washington?  This is not some witch hunt.  We have them saying it on tape!  And nobody seems to care,” Glenn said.

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.
