Joe Scarborough’s jealousy gets ugly

Before S.E. Cupp arrived on the scene, MSNBC's lone "conservative" voice belonged to the not so conservative Joe Scarborough.

Scarborough works for MSNBC, a network that, with the exception of S.E. Cupp, has a lineup of hosts who have thrills up their legs every time the president gives a speech. They have "news" hosts that just recently met with President Obama at the White House for council with him on how to handle PR. MSNBC is a network that threatened to fight Mitt Romney's son. The station that openly pines for Obama.

Well, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough is apparently so concerned about the "conservative movement" that he made this on-air statement about some of the most powerful voices in conservatism:

"What do you do to a school yard bully? You punch him in the face. You think any of these people in talk radio, if their punched in the face by a Republican nominee, do you think they would push back? No! They're cowards. They're bullies. Punch them in the face and they back off. Bullies do that. Mitt Romney, and we said it nonstop, for two years he would never stand up to these bullies, and so they framed his campaign and he got his tail whipped.

[...]

And we started saying this in 2010, when Glenn Beck said the president was a racist who hates all white people."

Glenn obviously had a few comments to make after listening to the audio of failed talk radio host Joe Scarborough.

"First of all, Joe, you might want to read up on Marxism, so maybe you can recognize Marxist policies when you see and hear them from your friends and co-workers: class-warfare, redistribution of wealth — it may sound familiar. You may also recognize somebody getting punched in the face, and not sitting down.  Still standing up to the bully on the street.  I know because I've stood up for a very long time to the bullies, mainly people like you and the people of MSNBC, because I think you just tried to punch me in the face again.  I don't really care," Glenn said.

"But secondly," he added, "if you're worried that Mitt wouldn't stand up to me.  If by not standing up, Joe, you mean by never appearing on my show, once, ever during the campaign, not ever during the campaign, not on the radio, not on the television, not on the website.  Nowhere, zero contact with Mitt Romney.  Zero.  If by not standing up to me you mean by not taking our advice on anything, ever, you have that exactly right.  You have that exactly right.

And I realize you're a tough guy Joe that wants to punch somebody in face.  It seems that you're in a very hostile work environment.  A lot of the people in the MSNBC wants to punch people in the face. But I'm a lover, Joe, not a fighter. My friend however, Pat, has made the offer that you can punch him in the face, anytime — anytime you'd like — and just see what happens."

"Anytime, yeah," Pat quipped. "See what happens. I'd love that."

"So let's get this straight," Glenn continued, "Joe Scarborough is on MSNBC for a reason, and here it is:  He's not a conservative.  I don't know what he is — and I don't care.  I really don't care.  But I'm really sick of these Republicans.  You know what, I think that's what he is.  He's a Republican. And I'm really sick of these Republicans who're just progressive Republicans who try to talk down to everybody and tell us how smart they are, and how everybody else is just so stupid.  That's great.  You can have your silly opinion there Joe.  I don't speak for the Republicans.  I don't want to speak for the Republicans.  I speak for me.  I tell you how I feel.  I don't want to speak for the Republican.  I wish that the Republicans would stop speaking quite honestly.  But tough guy Joe, he talks about bullies, and talk radio.  I'd like to know who these bullies are.  Who? How are we being bullies?  We had no contact with Mitt Romney.  Here's how much contact I had Mitt Romney.  The week before he was elected I flew to see his rally.  He was about 25 feet away from me.  His people knew we were on the tarmac.  I didn't even get a wave.  Nothing.

There were two planes on the tarmac.  His and mine — three — and the press plane.  He landed, then about an hour later we landed.  We parked our plane next to him so when he's coming down the stairs you're hearing the sounds of the plane so we're pretty hard to miss.  Not even "hey!" Nothing.  Here's how close we are: I gave Mitt Romney my George Washington farewell address, and I would like to read the note I got from him after giving him my original copy."

"The whole thing?" Pat asked. "Are you going to read the whole note?"

"Oh wait, I didn't get one. He didn't send one.  That's how tight we are," Glenn said sarcastically. "That's just how how tight we are. 

So please, Joe, give it a rest.  Joe considered talk radio show bullies, because when he got into talk radio he got his teeth kicked in.  This is actually a hard job.  But he got his teeth kicked in and he got bullied out of the media, and wound up in progressive TV land. 

People in talk radio they can see through frauds that fast.  That's why you either succeed or you fail in talk radio so fast, because this is -- look I do every medium.  The only thing I don't do I don't do horse whispering and smoke signals.  But -- I also don't do Morse code — but I believe we are in every possible medium available.  This is the hardest one because you're without a net.  You've got nothing but rope and you can hang yourself every single day, and Joe Scarborough did a very nice job.  He makes the nooses himself, every single day.  He's kind of like the Dunkin' Donuts guy, "Time to make the nooses". 

You shouldn't make nooses, you keep hanging yourself.

He gets his teeth kicked in and he winds up selling his soul and cavorting with the enemy, then he becomes the enemy. 

Joe, good for you. You made your bed and you're lying in it, and it's wonderful.  And I know you feel the same way about me: 'Beck you made your bed and you're lying in it.' 

Yes, I am.  Yes, I am.  And I'm thrilled with the bed I am in. I'm thrilled with it.  But you keep "leaning forward" or whatever Marxist themes that your propagandists have worked out with the president. Keep "moving forward". 

We'll keep standing straight as Americans that believe in the constitution and your right to have a different opinion without getting punched in the face."

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.

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.
