Glenn to Obama: "I don't think that you really understand America, sir"

UPDATE: Glenn also addressed this topic on GBTV Tuesday night - WATCH:

Original:

Mr. President,

You gave it a college try.  You tried.  You did.  You've done everything you could in your power, and then beyond your power, beyond your executive power, you have done more than any President should be allowed to do.  In fact they are not allowed to do the things that you've done but you've done them anyway. And still we see the results.

See you're going after the money or after the bodies of voters.  Sometimes literally the ones in the ground.  But that's not what America is.

I don't think that you really understand America, sir.  You understood two words last time that really kind of describe America but there has to be something behind that and it's hope and change.

Hope is an American trait.  We always have hope for a brighter tomorrow.  We do.  That is an American trait. And that helped you last time.  Change is also an American trait.  Nobody really likes change but we are the ones who have changed the world. We are looking for new ways to do things.  The system is broken, and we knew that, and you said 'I'm going to change the system.'

But you changed it in a way that is fundamentally un-American.  You changed it in a way that is all about corruption, all about money, and all about special interests. That wasn't the change that we sought. That wasn't the change that the people on the left sought. I'm not just talking about the Tea Party or the right or the Republicans - I'm talking about the left.  I'm talking about the people who are just good Democrats.

We tried change.  We tried your hope and change. And in fact it was all of us wanted hope, and all of us wanted change.  And darn near all of us - even if we voted against you and were against you - on election day, the day after we kind of licked our wounds a bit, and we all most of us did say it is cool to have an African-American President.

We had a moment where maybe the left would finally recognize that America isn't racist because you couldn't have been elected if we were a racist nation.  You couldn't have been elected by minorities.  You needed the white people to vote for you and they did in droves.  Many us, even if we didn't vote for you, were happy that we sent a message to the rest of the world that American is not 1950 America.

It was cool to see a black man in office.  Just as some day it will be cool a woman or a man who isn't embarrassed by his wheelchair.  Maybe even some day it will be cool to see a member of an easy to pick on faith be President of the United States.

But what happened here Mr. President, is America's hopes for change were not realized this time.  No matter which side of the aisle we were on.

I don't know if you've seen this nut the left - the people that you helped you so much all the way along and bashed the Tea Party and everybody else - they're worse now on you than the Tea Party was ever was a few years ago.  That's why you're having trouble raising money for your reelection. Because the people who supported you no longer support you.  And that's not the Republicans' fault.  That is the fault of people like you and people on your team deciding to put Big Labor and big corporations ahead of individuals who believed in you, who went door-to-door campaigning for you.

See politicians on both sides - it's not just you Mr. President, it happens all the time - politicians always forget that it really is about the individual.  In America, that's what it is.  The individual. And the parties and the politicians on both sides always forget that.

The American dream is about one person making up their mind and then making a difference.  It's not about a huge government.  It's not about huge corporations.  It's not about shadowy organization.  It's not about that. It's not about donors making a difference.  It's about individuals.

So Mr. President, I'm guessing that Americans are going to keep their $3 especially because after inflating my tires and everybody else inflating their tires we still have a hard time paying 104% more per gallon for gasoline.

We'll use that $3 to buy the fuel it will take to get to the polls.  And we'll stop off at an elderly neighbors or someone who can't drive and take them to the polls as well. And there we'll stand side by side in a school or gym along with the rich and poor the white and black the young and the old.  Democrat and Republican.  Americans all, and we will wait quietly in that line.  Not as an collective but as individuals.

Once again we'll cast our vote for change, and we'll do so with hope.

That's the great thing about America.  There's always hope.  Tomorrow always holds a new promise.

America really is an exceptional place.  And here's evidence of it:  No matter what has happened in the last 10 years, believe it or not, I still have hope we're going to find a group of decent people to go to Washington to represent us.  Maybe it will be this election.  And maybe this guy who's going to replace you will keep more of his promises to unite us, and bring us together and move us forward than you did.

But here's where the real hope comes from: If he doesn't we'll gather in our gyms and schools again and we'll send him home as well.

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.
