Get off the Rubio bandwagon

During a Spanish-speaking interview last week with Univision, Marco Rubio made the following statement: "Let's be clear. Nobody is talking about preventing legalizations. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then comes the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence."

Whether or not the Republican Senator from Florida knew his comment would receive the amount of attention that it did, conservatives weren't happy. And with good reason — it's the exact opposite of what he's been touting to the right since the immigration reform debate began. How many times was border security used as the prerequisite for amnesty? Countless.

Among the conservatives that are far less than pleased with Marco Rubio is Mr. Glenn Beck.

"Let me tell you something, Marco Rubio, I haven't trusted you for quite some time.  Everybody's been on this 'Marco Rubio Bandwagon'. Why?" Glenn asked

Stu pointed out that even they jumped on the bandwagon at one point. Pat compared it to the Chris Christie phase that is now also long gone.

"As with Chris Christie and everybody else we had high hopes in, we wanted him to be the guy we thought he was," Pat said.

"He's not," Glenn added.

Well, yesterday, the U.S. Senate voted 82-15 on a motion to begin a formal debate on the so-called 'Gang of Eight' immigration bill that would affect 11 million unauthorized immigrants and U.S. employers.

"This is the motion to proceed they voted on yesterdays right in the senate," Stu noted. "And fancy names like such as Rand Paul who voted yes on that, along with Marco Rubio, along with Lindsey Graham and all the names that you would expect."

While Pat suggested trying to save him, Glenn's mind was already made up.

"He's a dirtbag," Glenn passionately stated.

Pat was hesitant to go that far, but Glenn continued to draw a clear line in the sand.

"Rubio is not on our side," he emphasized. "He is not on our side."

It is worth nothing, however, Rubio didn't exactly vote outside party lines. In fact, he voted the same way as one of Glenn's favorite members of Congress, Rand Paul.

"I can't defend Rand on that," Glenn admitted. "I don't know, but I will tell you this, you don't trust Marco Rubio. I don't trust him, not for a second. I just don't trust him. And you know what? I'm sorry. You don't give a speech in Spanish and tell everybody one thing and then say — I mean, what is this?"

Glenn compared the way Rubio's messaging changed when addressing Univisions hispanic audience to the tactics of Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah groups.

"They say one thing in Arabic and then another thing in English," he said.

Glenn continued, "listen to me.  It is worse than universal health care.  And not coming days as we get closer, we will explain why it's worse than universal health care.  It is the death nail of the country.  There's

no recovery from this one.  None.  No recovery.  Because they are playing all kinds of legalistic games with this one, and they are saying oh, no.  Well — no.  There's no benefits and there's no this, no that.  No, they are not going — what?  They are not going to be able to grab onto that program.  Oh, yeah.  Oh, yes, they will.  Yes, they will.  This one is worse than universal health care and it happens overnight.  No recovery from this one.  And John Boehner, Marco Rubio, they're all in on it, and for those who want to save the nation, you got to stop this one.  And this one is going to be rammed through. Some of these — I think Marco Rubio and maybe Rand Paul as well, they are playing for 2014 or 2016.  There is no 2016. There is no 2016 where you are running for anything, if these things pass."

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.
