Brace yourself: Zimmerman verdict could unleash chaos

The George Zimmerman trial continues to move forward despite a bizarre series of witness testimonies and strange tactics from both the prosecution and the defense. So what happens if Zimmerman gets off scott free? On radio this morning, Glenn explained he believes things could get really ugly.

“The Zimmerman case is one of the most amazing cases that I have ever seen in my life,” Glenn said. “First of all, he's been deemed a ‘white man’ when he's as white as the president is. He's a Hispanic.”

Glenn explained that as fair as the American justice system is in comparison to other countries, there will always be injustice because man is inherently flawed.

“Look, we have to be really frank. As you will see this week on TheBlaze and we will try to bring more stories to you just about this museum that we are putting together here in the Mountain West for the independence week, America has been a place of great and grand injustice, just like every country and every land in the history of the planet because man is flawed. Man, natural man, is an enemy of God,” Glenn explained. “Unless we have justice and a court system, where justice is blind, and it doesn't look at a last name. It doesn't look at a color. It doesn't look at anything but the facts, that you take the name and you take the color of the skin, you take everything off except the facts and justice looks at those facts and says, ‘Guilty/not guilty,’ and it has nothing to do with your station in life. That's what's made us different.”

Our country was founded with a moral compass rooted in God, but we have stopped looking for that immovable compass point.

“We have stopped looking up, we have stopped looking for that immovable compass point because we now believe in social justice and collective salvation as opposed to individual salvation because we no longer believe in merit anymore,” Glenn continued. “Civil rights exist. It's called the Bill of Rights and they belong to all men, all men because all men are created equal and endowed by their creator, with certain things that you cannot change, ever, no man can change because they are given by God. And those rights are simple.”

Those rights include the freedom of speech, religion, assembly, self-protection, etc. They are simple and straightforward and protected by the Constitution, but lately it feels like we have failed at protecting these rights too many times.

“They were all protected by the Constitution. And we have failed so many times. Are we now going to fail our last great test? Are we going to fail? Are we really going to, while we're saying we're an enlightened group of people, go back to the animals that natural man really is and tear each other apart over race or power or greed,” Glenn asked. “Yes. I'm afraid so many would answer yes because they have forgotten the other point in the sky that was a compass point. Vengeance is mine, says the Lord. There are too many that want vengeance because they believe in collective salvation. Because they believe that they can dish out vengeance, they can dish out judgment and justice. And so we make our justice system a joke.”

In Zimmerman’s case, Glenn believes he has been the victim of 'guilty until proven innocent' instead of 'innocent until proven guilty.'

“I don't know anything about Zimmerman, but I do know this: The guy's getting railroaded,” Glenn said. “They convicted him the day this happened. They convicted him of the greatest crime in America today, the first time he committed was not killing a black man. His first crime was being white, even though he's not white. He suddenly became a Caucasian. Hispanics, listen up. They'll turn on you the second it's to their advantage because they don't believe in true justice. They believe in vengeance. They believe in power. They believe in greed. They believe in all those things that do not come from God. They do not believe in equal justice. They believe in special justice. And if you stand in the way... or because they believe in the collective, your life isn't worth anything to them if they can use you to make a greater point for the collective. You have to break a few eggs. And this Hispanic is an unfortunate egg that needs to be broken. And MSNBC is now saying there's little hope that he's going to be convicted. Excuse me? There's little hope that he's going to be convicted? Who is hoping for him to be convicted if the evidence shows he's not guilty?”

“And MSNBC, they know exactly what they're doing. This is not 2004 anymore, when so many Americans were lost and didn't know what they were talking about… This is 2013. Our country is at stake. Our children are at stake. This isn't hyperbole. You know in the year 2000 when we were back and forth on Al Gore and we were talking about laws, are we going to stay with laws or not? But nobody's life was at stake. The republic, it was hyperbole then to say the republic is at stake,” he continued. “But gang, we're at the end. And unless we stand for unmovable truths, just those truths that are immovable and eternal, whether you like them or not, they're eternal and immovable. Unless we stand for those we don't like, if they're wrong, we have to stand with them. You may be for Trayvon Martin, but if the facts come out and say Zimmerman did it in self‑defense… I don't like Zimmerman. I don't like him. I mean, he was out in the night and he's patrolling. He seems like an egomaniac. He's doing stuff I wouldn't do and I wouldn't want my neighbor to do. But if he's not guilty, you don't condemn him. And if they don't condemn him, what's going to happen? This guy's life is ruined forever! Forever! Aren't we becoming everything we despise? The only way to stop it is to be for blind justice.”

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.
