Could this be the man that defeats Lindsey Graham?

A couple weeks ago, Glenn started a movement…Operation Defeat Lindsey Graham. He offered airtime to any conservative candidate willing to run against Senator Lindsey Graham in South Carolina. In a state like South Carolina, there's no excuse to have a progressive Republican in office — it's a deeply conservative state.

Pat and Stu took the efforts to the next level when they had former Congressman Allen West on the Pat & Stu show. The duo went so far as to offer to buy him a home in South Carolina so that he would be eligible to run for Graham's Senate seat. Unfortunately, West didn't take the bate, however, there may be another possible option, South Carolina State Senator Lee Bright.

Glenn spoke to Lee on the radio program this morning to learn a little bit more about him as a candidate and a person.

During his conversation, Bright stated that he was a fan of the flat tax, including the one presented in Senator Rand Paul's budget proposal. He also shared that he is very religious and a proponent of a limited government — both qualities Glenn was happy to hear.

"I think government's way too much in our lives as it is, especially the federal government.  And I think states have a lot of purview when it comes to instituting laws.  But the federal government's powers are numbered obviously, and they have gone way outside their powers and they have neglected, the core of what they are supposed to do," Bright said. "They are not protecting our borders, they're not instituting sound foreign policy, they're not even taking care of our soldiers who go off and fight and come back without arms and legs and then we tell them they've got to wait nine months now on the disability claims instead of six.  It's abhorrent the way we treat our veterans."

Stu took the reigns of the interview (…Glenn was likely off printing Lee Bright 2014 bumper stickers). Stu asked the state Senator to clarify what he means when he says he is very religious. There are a lot of politicians who like to use their faith as a weapon to tax the American people and build the welfare state.

Bright responded by explaining that those politicians are trying to make the state take the role of the church. It's the church's role to take care of those in need — not the state.

"The state is trying to take the place of God in our society, and that's where we've really gone awry," Bright responded. "I mean, we have to come together in our churches instead. I'm a Southern Baptist but a lot of our churches are focused on building bigger buildings and growing larger congregations and, the point ought to be being the, the arms of Christ and taking care of these people that are downtrodden. That's not the role of the state.  All the state can do is take money from one group of folks, mismanage it tremendously and then give it to another."

All good answers from Glenn's point of view. Now what about gun control…where does Bright stand on that?

"I think gun control is really like people control.  I mean, it's liberty control.  If you can defend yourself, you have a lot less need for government," Bright stated.

Bright is actively taking actions in the state Senate to fight for the Constitutional Carry bill, which is basically a law that wouldn't make you go through the state to assert one of your constitutional rights.

Not surprisingly, Sen. Lindsey Graham isn't exactly "supportive" of the bill.

"Senator Bright, one of Lindsey Graham's nicknames is Lindsey Grahamnesty.  What is your plan for immigration?  Are you in favor of this comprehensive immigration reform thing?" Pat asked.

"No.  You know, my thing is I don't want to get a permanent underclass and I think that's what Obama's goal is a permanent underclass, and he's going to get folks in here and sign them up for welfare and sign them up to vote and then he can, you know, use the product of the producers in order to buy votes and that's just not what I want to support," the Senator replied.

He did clarify that he is a supporter of immigration — he doesn't want the borders closed. Sen. Bright believes that America is the melting pot.

If all goes well for the state Senator, in a short 15 months, he'll be running against Lindsey Graham for the United States Sentate. However, the road ahead of him isn't an easy one.

"I think we're at the Battle of Trenton right now and we've got a choice, either we're going to have a nation or we're not," Sen. Bright told Glenn. "And if we don't, if we don't get behind Rand Paul and what he's trying to do and Ted, Ted Cruzes of the world, I don't think we can survive.  I mean, we're at the tipping point and people have realized that they can vote away the possessions of others and they can, you know, even get a free cellphone.  So I mean, we're at a point to where if we don't make our stand now, there will be nothing to stand for."

So far so good for Operation Defeat Lindsey Graham.

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.
