Glenn brings common sense, laughs to movie theaters during "Unelectable 2012"

Editor’s note: Since this is GlennBeck.com and most of you are Glenn Beck fans (or people looking to pick a fight in the comments section), let me just get it out of the way and say this is going to be a very different review from what you’re going to see in the rest of the media. In other words, take this as a fan reviewing the show for fans.

On Thursday night, Glenn performed his Unelectable 2012 comedy show in front of a packed audience at the Majestic Theater  in San Antonio, Texas. Alongside The B.S. of A.’s Brian Sack, Matt Fisher, and Jack Helmuth, Glenn excoriated politicians and the media to a chorus of cheers, laughs, and tears from the live audience. The show was simulcast to movie theaters across the country.

In the first half of the show, Jack and Matt played the roles of the “unbiased” journalists who were charged with moderating the debate between Brian and Glenn. And while Brian played the traditional politician, a very thinly veiled parody of Barack Obama, Glenn played himself, the everyday guy with common sense solutions that could never, ever get elected.

During the opening forty-five minutes, the Brian and Glenn were asked questions tackling everything from the economy, immigration, and the size of the federal government. In response to the questions, Brian would just ramble off empty platitudes and promises, never giving an honest answer (if he gave an answer at all).  Meanwhile, Glenn delivered tangible solutions that were rooted in conservative values.

The back-and-forth between the two elicited a lot of laughs from the audience. One highlight was Brian’s solution to the immigration issue being to print off a giant banner that would read “Immi-GREAT-ion”, a new slogan that he claimed was testing well with voters. While Matt and Jack applauded the President’s great idea, Glenn couldn’t help but call out his idiocy and mock President Obama’s record on immigration to thunderous applause from the crowd.

As the comedy portion came to an end, Jack and Matt walked right past Glenn to hug President Sack and escort him off stage.

The rest of the evening saw Glenn speak for about an hour as he told stories covering that revolved around current events, history, and family.

At one point he took issue with President Obama’s new flag, which removes the stars in favor of the Obama symbol. The worst part? Obama’s tweet “A poster to say there are no red states or blue states, only the United States.”

“When did we start hating each other because they voted a different way? Be specific on why you have problems with people,” Glenn said at one point.

“We’re different, but it is that difference – it is the facet of the diamond that makes it so special. The more facets the more brilliant it becomes. E pluribus unum – from many, one,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that what the President seems to be forgetting is that we are a nation full of people who are different, unique, and have a variety of opinions. It is those differences that make America great.

During the show, Glenn also spent a lot of time discussing the relationship between Thomas Paine and George Washington, and how there different views on faith shaped their experiences during the revolutions in France and America.

He concluded with a touching story about taking his son to go see Spider-Man on Broadway, and how the show gave him a bonding experience with his son that he never had with his own father.

You can catch an encore of “Unelectable 2012” on September 25th in theaters across the country. Get the details 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?

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.
