CNN: Dorner ‘had a point’; rampage was ‘exciting’

Common sense would seem to dictate that the police pursuit that ended in the death of cop-killer Chris Dorner would be met with praise. But not if you watched CNN! They sympathized with Dorner, concluding that he ‘had a point’ with his grievance. One CNN commentator even called the pursuit ‘exciting’ because Dorner was a ‘real life super hero’ to many people. Glenn reacted to the news on radio this morning.

During an appearance on CNN, HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill said, “This has been an important conversation that we’ve had about police brutality, about police corruption, about state violence."

“As far as Dorner himself goes, he’s been like a real life superhero to many people,” Hill continued.

Hill also said that "when you read his manifesto, when you read the message that he left, he wasn’t entirely crazy."

“It’s almost like watching ‘Django Unchained’ in real life,” he explained. “It’s kind of exciting.”

Hill did pay lip service to the idea that the killing of innocent people was wrong, but his comments indicated that overall he was entertained by the whole tragedy.

"If this were happening and this guy, this cop, were not a leftist, you know what the coverage would have been last night?" Glenn asked. "The coverage last night would have been they finally got this guy and here's what he said in his manifesto. Listen to this crazy talk. Listen to what he said in his manifesto,"

"His manifesto is anti‑cop, anti‑government. His manifesto is the rantings of a madman. Now, who else is he connected to? Was he ever watching Fox? Was he ever listening to Rush Limbaugh? Because how many more of these guys are out there? And then they would have run all of the stories that they could possibly find about the violence from the right. They would have covered everything," Glenn said.

"But instead they are quoting a crazy killer's manifesto and saying he's making some ‑‑ he's making some good points," Glenn continued.

"The biggest, the number one problem in America is the indoctrination in America. All the way from Hollywood to the news. And you know what? When you're alone, when you're just a blogger, when you have just a few websites that are just mocked all the time, those few websites can't create enough momentum to keep a story alive. They can't. Because they're constantly being mocked and ridiculed. And the silence is deafening. And people, because they don't trust the news anymore, don't watch it. Instead they get it from Jon Stewart."

"At TheBlaze we've been ‑‑ we're working tirelessly to get it right, and sometimes we screw it up. But the things that we're working on that we're planning, we'll eventually shut these guys down. And they will run to the government, and they will try to limit people like me, places like TheBlaze, they will use the FCC and they will use new regulation, they will use scare tactics, bullying tactics. They will bully not only us as a business but they will bully any sponsors or anybody else."

Glenn predicted that as mainstream media outlets lose viewers and readers to online citizen journalists, they will eventually run to the federal government for a bailout and claim that it's important to keep these outdated news institutions alive.

"And believe me, the United States government will bail the journalists out. They will bail out the New York Times because it's the paper of record, you know. And they will bail them out and they will become even more Pravda‑like."

"They lose as long as we have the Internet. They lose as long as the Internet remains free. The bullies on the right and the bullies on the left lose, as long as you are free to speak your mind and tell the truth. It's going to get harder and harder to do that," Glenn said.

Glenn said despite the struggle ahead in the fight for freedom, the challenges will ultimately mold people who seek truth into something strong.

"How lucky we are to be able to be pushed and prodded. And to find what we really, truly mean, to find what we truly believe, to find what's worth fighting for," Glenn explained. "Soft times made us lazy, but hard times will make us who we really are."

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

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.
