Glenn agrees with Obama: This is the biggest election yet

Barack Obama has said this is the biggest choice that Americans could face, and Glenn happens to agree with him. Of course, Glenn agrees for a completely different reason. Barack Obama warned us four years ago that he would ‘fundamentally transform America’ if he were elected. He’s doing it and if he has another 4 years it’s uncertain if America as we know it would survive.

On the radio show, he played this ad from Barack Obama:

In the ad, Obama ends with: "Sometimes politics can seem very small. But the choice you face, it couldn't be bigger."

"Here's the thing: The plan that he's talking about is different than the plan I'm talking about. When he says we tried their plan and it didn't work, he's talking about a different plan. He's talking about a big government progressive Republican plan. We're talking about the Founder's plan: freedom and merit. An idea that President Obama dismisses entirely. But he would. He doesn't understand it. How could you possibly say that you understand truly the Founders in America, when you never went to a Fourth of July parade, you didn't go to fireworks on the Fourth of July. You were raised in Indonesia and then you moved to Hawaii where you spent your teenage years in Hawaii."

"The Founder's ideas worked to the extent that hundreds of millions of immigrants poured into our shores just to be a part of it to escape what they had anywhere else. It worked to the extent that we pulled ourselves along with much of the rest of the world out of the Dark Ages and into the brilliant electric light of freedom and hope and opportunity, success and invention," Glenns said.

Glenn noted that most nations that followed progressivism to its socialist and communist extremes have all had to deal with the opposite: Their citizens fled to be a part of nations that represented freedom and opportunity.

"We have violated the idea of a free Republic, of a free nation. We have done it through regulation over the last 100 years. We have done it through progressivism where a man cannot start his own business, can't chart his own course. Only here in this nation can you do it. And we're a shadow of what we should be. This nation provides equal opportunity. No guarantees, just the opportunity."

Glenn used his own story as an example. Twelve years ago he couldn't afford his rent, at the time less than $700.Now people refer to Glenn as a leader and titan in the media industry, and he's been blessed with financial success. That kind of opportunity and success is uniquely American. He added that there are stories of

You can find those stories over and over again in America, and only in America. In each of their cases and so many more through perseverance and ingenuity,through getting back over and over they stronger. They become people able to conquer any adversity. And therefore they will acheive amazing success. We hold these truths to be self-evident. With your children, if you jump in and take care of everything for them whenever anything goes wrong in their life, if you don't allow them to overcome adversity on their own, they will be dependent upon you. How is it any different with us and our government? Expecting people to work through their own problems is not heartless or hateful or selfish. It helps them build character, and gain confidence. It makes our country stronger."

"We can be there for the occasionally helping hand up. But if we continue to get handouts and trophies that nobody deserves, we're giving them or us any favors," Glenn said.

"Obama is right. That commercial is true. The choice in November couldn't be any bigger. To you give you some perspective there are 51 more times we meet before we decide the future of our country. The choice could not be any bigger. The biggest choice America maybe has ever faced. Will we allow fundamental transformation to be completed? Or will we again as we did 236 years ago fight for our independence? Except this time at the ballot box, because at least today the ballot box still matters."

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.
