Glenn: Establishment GOP is over

If the past few days have revealed anything about the state of the country, it's that the establishment Republican party is over and done. On radio this morning, Glenn took serious issue with several prominent establishment Republicans in office and in the media and came to the only conclusion possible after Tuesday night: Their influence over the country is coming to an end and it's time to start something new.

"I think that the GOP is the Whig party," Glenn said on radio this morning.

Glenn took issue with House Majority leader John Boehner, who came out after the election and said that GOP leaders in Congress were willing to discuss a compromise on the upcoming "fiscal cliff", saying they were willing to look at new government revenues through an overhaul of the tax system.

"Now after putting up this fight for years you're going to cave," Pat said.

"He's got some conditions. What do you say we throw John Boehner out. I think we should throw the GOP out," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to call the Republicans in Congress irrelevant, and that the number of people who came out to support Obama prove they have lost their influence.

"John Boehner, ridiculous. Karl Rove how much money did you spend?" Glenn said. "These guys blew it."

He pointed out that the percentage of Catholics who voted for Obama actually increased compared to 2008 despite the administrations policies which are not friendly towards Catholicism.

"He has fundamentally transformed us. We've done it ourselves. You know it's like we're going into a doctor's office. Man I feel great. I feel great. And I think I beat this cancer thing. It's working. And the doctor does the scan, and actually you're getting worse. What? Yeah. No you made a little progress here and there. Actually the cancer is getting worse. That's kind of what happened. They grew in the youth vote? How did that happen? How did they possibly -- hey, dummies in college have you seen what's seen with your opportunities. Dummies in college have you seen what happened to your bill."

"The people that should be the most pissed are the ones my daughter's age. Our 8 years old kids should kick us in the shins every day when we come home. 'Thanks a lot for the debt dad.' Yet they are screaming for more debt. It doesn't make any sense." It shows how detached we are from any kind of reality. And if this isn't enough pain to make you wake up, and with the media left unchecked, and the Republicans being the same old story where are we headed? Where are we headed?"

"It's autopsy day. And we're going to look at this body but then we have to find the way because what we're doing is not working. Well it is for them because all they're doing is depressing the vote. They didn't have as many people voting for him. Fewer people came out. On both sides. And I think that's because they're just disgusted by the whole thing. I know I am. Boy, am I disgusted by Washington and the people in there. I look at John Boehner. I didn't want to see him. I don't want to hear from the President any more. I'm really kind of I'm going to take care of my school board. I'm going to take care of my mayor. I'm going to take care of my town and I'm going to -- because I can't fight that huge machine," Glenn said.

Yesterday, Glenn announced that he planned to rapidly expand TheBlaze to provide an anti-establishment and truly conservative alternative to the rest of the networks out there and to provide a platform for people frustrated with both parties in Washington.

"I told you yesterday we have to more than double our efforts. And we have been in the last 24 hours - I think I slept maybe two hours last night - we have got to find a way to get our network into a position in the next two years, that may take us four or five years, but I'm growing as past as I possibly can both in my pants size and on the network. If you haven't subscribed to TheBlaze would you please consider it?"

"We need to start a 60 Minutes replacement with real journalists, real quality hard-hitting. Not the new 60 Minutes. Remember when they used to make them sweat. Holy cow. That's one of the most expensive shows we can could possibly consider doing that. I think that one is $4 million to produce."

"The other one that I want to do is a Nightline that is specifically on the Muslim Brotherhood, Israel, the Middle East, Benghazi, the things that are happening overseas. It is coming. It is coming. And one that is in touch with correspondents that are like-minded all around the world that can show you the creep of Shari'a, and Islamic extremism. That thing has to be funded by subscribers. That thing is going to be the most politically incorrect show ever done on television. I need you to subscribe."

"There is also the other one which is the American Dream Labs which is I believe is my most important work that I will ever do and even people in my company don't understand it yet. When we start it up you will see and understand, I really believe it is -- I think it's the most important thing I can do. I really do. But I need you to subscribe."

"If you haven't subscribed yet please do. If you have subscribe get one other person to subscribe. I've got to double. I need your help. Go to Blaze.com/TV. And subscribe. The election should have told we're farther behind than we thought we were, and we've got to change the media."

"The other thing you can do if you don't have the money to subscribe is stop watching the mainstream media. Stop. Stop giving them power. Stop giving them ratings. It's not good. It is not good what they're doing, and all of them have made their choices, and some of them are drifting even farther left now I ever thought possible but they're drifting. And it is an intentionally course correction, and stop giving them power."

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?
