Glenn: "It's when you're in trouble that people begin to see your true character"

Have you ever criticized Vice President Biden or opposed the objections being thrown at Mitt Romney? If you have, according to Biden, you’re a “squealing pig.”

It’s odd that the Democrats constantly seem to be name-calling those who criticize them or, much less, defend themselves against inaccurate accusations. After all, this is the party of “diversity and inclusivity,” isn’t it?

“These are lovers of all opinions, all lifestyles, all choices as valid – Joe Biden is the Vice President of the United States.  He's calling us pigs now.  That's fantastic, isn't it?  He's so inclusive,” Glenn said. “Actually it is fantastic, because it shows their desperation.  It shows who they really are.”

But that's not who Americans are.

The true character of a person is hard to see when things are going well for them. But in times of desperation, that’s when you see who a person really is in their core. When someone finds themselves in trouble their true character can be seen.

“We don't have to worry about the name calling nonsense because name calling doesn't matter.  Sticks and stones may break my bones, but calling me a pig really is ridiculous,” Glenn said.

The more hate, insults, and lies this administration throws at conservatives the more trouble they are in. The White House is showing us what kind of shape they’re really in because there is no validity or substance to the things they are spouting out across the nation about conservatives, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or their policies.

“Heading into the home stretch they've never been questioned, they've never had their back pushed up against the wall, they've never had any of these things happen to them,” Glenn pointed out. “They don't know how to deal with it.”

However, the Tea Party and true conservatives have been under attack since day one – from both parties – first by the Bush administration, then by this one.

“You know who you are,” Glenn told listeners, “and you've known who they are for a long time.”

It’s obvious that the Obama administration is in trouble. But what kind of shape are we in? What kind of shape are Americans in? That’s the question Glenn answered this morning.

“I think we’re in better shape that in any time, since 9/12/2011,” he said. “Do you remember the feeling of unity and resolve that we had?”

9/12 is a day that all Americans remember – a day America came together no matter the differences that were between them.

“People are beginning to come together. We used to care about each other. On that day we did literally care about each other. We turned to God. We had a common goal and purpose. That's what Americans always do in a time of crisis:  We come together.  We've come together.  We've turned to God,” Glenn said.

As Americans look ahead and see the challenges that lie ahead, it’s clear that we are at a crossroads.

“We're looking at the choices carefully and we're choosing the paths that lead us back to the road the founders put us on, at least many of us are,” Glenn noted. “Not everybody.  Admittedly there's a chasm in America.”

As divided as the country may seem, the overwhelming majority of Americans generally stand on the same side of the major issues.

“Don't forget every poll, every single one done over the course of years has shown that conservatives outnumber liberals at least two to one, and a full 79% of Americans are not liberals,” Glenn reminded listeners.

Liberals may act like they are in the overwhelming majority, but they’re not – it’s not even close. This is why they’ve worked to influence and gain control of the mainstream media, and why they alienate and ridicule those bold enough to speak out against them.

They want you to feel alone. You’re not.

Internal polling is showing that if the election were held today, Mitt Romney would win. While a lot can change in the next two months, more and more people are waking up and coming together to get this country back on track.

“This doesn't mean that we're not going to face some hard times,” Glenn told listeners.

There are still a lot of challenges ahead, and Glenn pointed out that many of us are already seeing it at the grocery store.

The point Glenn is making, however, is that Americans will come together and we will make it through the challenges that lie ahead. For the last few years, Glenn has been telling people that his audience will lead the way towards restoring America.

“You're part of the group that will save the nation. We will hold it together, Glenn told the audience.

“You will be a shelter from the storm. You will be a blessing to your neighbor, to your family, to your state and to your country, because you've done the hard work. You know what we're facing.  We're facing freedom, real freedom that will come at a cost, or slavery – free stuff.  The good news is there's a lot of Americans that have had their fill of the free stuff promised because they see the freedoms going away, and more importantly, they also know you can't keep paying for this free stuff:  it won't work.  It never does.”

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?
