Glenn's interview with Brian Lilley

TheBlaze TV’s interest in Current was dismissed by Gore in favor of al Jazeera, but the media seems more concerned with Glenn’s dealings while ignoring at the prospect of Gore being ‘aligned’ with the network that spews anti-American propaganda. More details on the shocking purchase move on radio today came during Glenn’s interview with Brian Lilley from Sun News.

Transcript of the interview is below:

GLENN: We go to Brian Lilley. He's a broadcaster out of Ottawa, Canada on Sun television network. Sun is trying to do very much the same thing that we're doing with TheBlaze up in Canada. These are like‑minded guys and freedom lovers and really, really wicked smart. I feel a little embarrassed because I always know more about what we're doing here than I know about Canada. But he ‑‑ Brian has ‑‑ hi, Brian, how are you, sir?

LILLEY: Oh, good to talk to you again, Glenn.

GLENN: You ‑‑

LILLEY: But I'm calling with an apology really.

GLENN: Why?

LILLEY: Because we're giving you in a way ‑‑ this is my apology on behalf of all the people in Canada to all the people of the United States of America because we gave birth to what is soon to become Al‑Jazeera USA because before Al Gore bought it, Current TV started out as the U.S. operations of our state broadcaster, CBC. And I can tell you they didn't really change editorial direction when Gore bought them and I don't think they will change editorial direction all that much with Al‑Jazeera at the helm.

GLENN: Well, that's why he's selling it to them. He said that. I mean, you know, here's the amazing thing: His life goal was to build this, you know, network to get the word out. They're firing everybody. They're going to fire all of the people that built this network and then build ‑‑ you know, Al‑Jazeera will build their own, you know, thing. There's no mention of all the employees that Al Gore is pleased as punch that he's made $100 million on but all these employees are all gone. All just you gone.

LILLEY: It will allow them to continue to fly in his personal jets with limos in the back to give speeches about how you and I need to reduce our global footprint.

GLENN: Brian, understand I won't do this on your show but if you're on my show, you have to say "about" not "aboot."

PAT: You have to.

GLENN: I'll say aboot on your show if it makes you more comfortable but just something ‑‑

LILLEY: I'll watch that.

GLENN: I don't know what happened. What happened to you in Canada where that happened?

PAT: That's weird.

GLENN: I mean, of all the things to be different on, that's not the thing I would choose, like, we're going to say "about" differently. What's that?

LILLEY: My youngest daughter, that's my excuse. It's aboot...(inaudible) right now, you know?

GLENN: Yeah. So how do you feel about ‑‑ I mean, your perspective ‑‑ because I'm not convinced ‑‑ let's put it this way: The Wall Street Journal, the Business Insider, the Huffington Post, everybody is now kind of talking about this story about our failed bid for Current instead of saying the former vice president of the United States just sold his network and said he's ideologically aligned with Al‑Jazeera. How does that ‑‑ what does that say to you in Canada about America?

LILLEY: I'm not shocked. And again I go back to the fact that this started as a CBC operation and there's these connections that go between CBC and the international left and Al‑Jazeera and what's going on. The guy that headed up Al‑Jazeera, English when it started is a gentleman named Tony Berman, and Tony Berman has since retired. He used to head up CBC news division here in Canada, the national broadcaster funded with a billion dollars a year from taxpayers, and he left CBC to go start Al‑Jazeera English. And he took a bunch of people with him. He since retired and now he's ‑‑ this is even more scary. He's teaching journalism students at a university in Toronto. That is more frightening. But he took a lot of his employees with him including a guy named Avi Lewis. I think he's still there. Avi Lewis' father is very famous. His name's Stephen Lewis because he's still going around the world as a special agent of the United Nations dealing with AIDS. He's the go‑to guy on the AIDS issue. They are all socialists, international leftists, connected him with Al‑Jazeera, connected him with Al Gore. Avi Lewis' wife is Naomi Klein who wrote Shock Doctrine. She's a hero of the American left. They make millions doing this, by the way. They make themselves very wealthy. But it is a global leftist ideology and that's why it wraps up so nice together.

GLENN: Thanks a lot, Brian from Sun News in Canada.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.
