Piers Morgan schools Debbie Wasserman-Schultz

Not many people watch Piers Morgan’s show on CNN. But on Wednesday, Morgan interviewed the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and after listening to the Congresswoman ramble on and on about the Wisconsin recall election, Morgan made a surprising observation that no one else in the media is willing to make.

“I want to play some audio from Debbie Wasserman Schultz,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It's the kind of audio that is amazing. This is incredible that they could say it. And it's a Piers Morgan. And at the end there's a little treat at the end. Apparently Piers finds a moment of sanity on CNN. The English guy that nobody watches said something to a guest that nobody watches that you should hear.”

WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: The President deployed his entire machinery grassroots machinery on the ground in Wisconsin. 40 offices. More than a million and a half dollars. Team neighborhoods and team leaders. We put an unprecedented effort of grassroots into this recall. We came up short. The ultimate goal The Governor Walker couldn't adopt his extremist policies, and continue to hurt middle class and working families. We did apparently succeed in flipping the state Senate. The state Senate is likely to be controlled by the Democrat. We're going to be able to stop Governor Walker to pursue those extremist policies. Ultimately we were in part successful, and what we demonstrated here that Democrats are not going to lay down and allow the middle class and working families and workers to get run over and let an extremist governor run amuck...

MORGAN: You keep calling him this great extremist who everyone is apparently terrified of and everything else. He won convincingly. So the only ones it would seem who are laying down to everyone else are the Democrats on this. So how do you get some sort of weird victory out of this.

WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: There's nothing weird about flipping the state Senate. I mean last year there were recalls of state senators that were put on the ballot, and there were recalls last night. And as a result of those victories, the state Senate has gone to Republican to very likely to being Democrat now. I'm certainly not going to call it a victory. And like I said, we lost the actual recall of the governor.

MORGAN: Let me jump in him. That is my point. If you keep calling him an extremist but you accept that he won. What does that say about the people of Wisconsin. Are they all just a bunch of mad extremists?

WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: No what it says is that voters look at a recall very differently than they look at a straight up election…

Really? That is the best she can come up with. Obviously voters are going to look at a recall election differently. And considering this is the first time ever that an incumbent governor has won a recall election, it is near impossible for Wasserman-Schultz to make any kind of generalizations about voting behavior.

The fact that CNN would waste airtime on an interview with this woman is insulting to the viewer. Most telling is that as she babbled through the same old tired talking points, even Piers Morgan called her bluff. You know there is a problem when Piers Morgan starts making sense.

“Listen. Let me help CNN before you lose everything that Ted Turner ever tried to do, and he loses his ranch and farm and buffalo and he loses that grand opportunity to finance the new world order through the United Nations,” Glenn said.

“Let me just say the reason why nobody is watching your crappy network, the reason why nobody is watching MSNBC, the reason everyone is tuned out of all news is everybody knows you're full of crap. This person [Debbie Wasserman-Schultz] is full of crap.”

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

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.
