Tens of thousands serve in Dallas for Restoring Love, media ignores

Glenn gave his first reaction to the events of last weekend on radio today and took particular exception with the coverage. Tens of thousands of people served, then even more filled Dallas Cowboys Stadium to proclaim their commitment to serving their fellow man - and the media doesn’t think it’s a story? About the only thing they bothered to cover were the Westboro idiots that were there.

In case you missed it, it was absolutely incredible.  Most incredible thing that we have ever been a part of," he said.

"CBS News is reporting 65,000 people show up at Dallas Cowboy stadium on Saturday.  Now, I just want to give this some perspective.  CBS News is the same organization that said 87,000 people showed up at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.  So 65,000 according to CBS News, 65,000 were at the stadium and only 87,000 were on the ‑‑ in the mall, that's ‑‑ well, here's the difference, I should point out:  All the people that showed up, the 87,000 people that showed up in the mall were enormously fat," he joked.

"This is what the 9/12 project was all about:  To tell people you're not alone.  And I don't think there's a soul that felt they were alone this weekend, not a soul.  Biggest service project in the history of America.  And we've just begun.  14 tractor‑trailers left on Saturday for eleven different cities across the country.  14 tractor‑trailers full of food.  And that was only one service project.  Service project, 305 service projects."

"One of the stories here in Dallas that talked about the service projects, they were struggling for anything to say that would be bad about this. 305 service projects. 14 tractor‑trailers full of food going to eleven different cities, and what did the newspaper report? The newspaper reported that Tarrant County was left out."

Pat noted that Tarrant County is one of the wealthiest counties in the country.

Anyone who watched the event would see how different it was from anything Glenn had ever done, with incredibly visuals and music.

"You have to see this thing. If you didn't, if you missed it, you have to watch it in its entirety. It is ‑‑ Pat said this morning, he said, Glenn, that was Super Bowl quality. It really was. Really was. And I say that without ‑‑ I'm not taking any credit for it. The crew that I have, I was so amazed by my staff. I have the best staff I believe, and I say this with humility because I didn't assemble it. I have the best staff I believe ever assembled in radio and television. I really do. We are 130 people. We should be about ‑‑ to do what we do, it should be about a staff of about 400."

"They have never done anything like this. I believe we created a new art form this last Saturday. Nobody ‑ when I said a year ago we're going to do the whole speech and I want it to be ‑ I want the whole show to never end. So when we start rolling, music runs all the way through it, and it never stops. I said, I don't want people to be able to catch their breath through this whole thing."

"It's unlike anything anybody's ever done."

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?
