Paranoid? Delusional?

The mainstream media has been calling Glenn "paranoid" and "delusional" for years, but now everything he has said has started to come true. Collapsing economy in Europe? Check - take a look at Greece! Marxists, Socialists, and radical Islamists uniting to end the Western way of life? It's happening down on Wall Street right now! Food prices will skyrocket? Peanut butter prices are probably the first thing to start going up. What do you do?

"Listen to me. I am sure of where we are headed. I am sure of what I am supposed to do. I want you to be sure of what you are supposed to do," Glenn said.

"If you think God is telling you to blow something up, pick up a rifle and do something, you're sadly mistaken. If you think that God is telling you to make a Molotov cocktail, break a window of Whole Foods, you're sadly mistaken."

"What is happening in the newspapers today, what is happening on television, by the time it gets there, it's too late. You need to stay ahead."

" I'm asking you to put your life in order now. I'm asking you to ‑‑ what I want you to do today is I want you to go get a picture of somebody that you admire, somebody who is a better man or woman than you are, somebody that you look at and say, "Man, you know, I'd love to be ‑‑ I'd love to be half the man that is." I don't care if he's alive today. I don't care if she's alive today. Somebody. Mine quite honestly is Jon Huntsman, Sr., George Washington, and Gordon B. Hinckley. I love those men. I love them. They stood, and they did it and they still do, Jon Huntsman still does, peacefully, honorably. Those are the people I'm trying to be. Who are you trying to be? Dietrich Bonhoeffer plays a role in my life, Martin Luther King plays a role in my life. Abraham Lincoln plays a role in my life. I can name the people that I am reading everything that I can get my hands on. I know who I'm trying to emulate. I'm not trying to be them. I'll never be them. But people who show me that it can be done."

"I want you to find pictures, find biographies or autobiographies, I want you to study people. Not the crap that you're seeing. Look, time is out for us to study the problem."

"What I'm trying to say to you is this program has been ‑‑ we have taken a lot of heat, a lot of heat. But you tell me. Food prices, have they gone up or not? Peanut butter going up 40% this week. Food prices going up? Inflation going up? I told you this a few years ago and was laughed at. We were just ahead. Life catches up with us. Food prices are going up. Now, have you done your food storage? No? Well, you're running out of time. Food is going to go through the roof. Food is going to be difficult to get. Get it done now. Have you, have you made a plan with your family on, you know, any kind of plan?"

"I told you that the Middle East would be set on fire and it would fall into the hands of Islamists. Hmmm, what do you think? Is that happening? I was made fun of. That's okay. Yes or no? Make it? Were they right or was I right? I'm right. Did you prepare? Do you know where you stand on that issue?"

"I told you our churches are going to come under attack. Hmmm. Have you read the news lately?"

"I told you there would be riots first in the streets of Europe and then it would come to the United States. Right or wrong, gang? Right or wrong?"

"You know the answer to these things. The reason why I'm telling you this is because it is time to get ahead. You must stay ahead. By the time the rest of the world catches up to you, it's too late. You want to make a difference? You lock arms with me. You stop being slowed down by others."

"I don't need you. The country needs you. You're here for a reason. You're listening for a reason. I have said from the very beginning I believe this audience will be a key. It will be the turning point of this country. It will preserve the republic and it will do so peacefully in a way that most of the world won't even understand until it's too late. Be a force for good. Lock arms with me."

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

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

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?
