Bill Kristol still wrong as violence escalates in Egypt

More violence broke out in Egypt this week as at least 42 people have been confirmed dead after a bloody clash between the Egyptian military and supporters of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood regime. Both sides claim the other initiated the violence, but either way there is massive violence on the streets and it’s only getting worse.

TheBlaze.com is reporting that violence erupted between Egyptian security forces and supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi early Monday morning. There are conflicting reports coming from each side on the violence. Morsi supporters, who were holding a sit-in, content that the military fired the first shots, while the military says terrorist trying to storm the Republican Guard building fired first.

"What we do know is that Morsi’s supporters have been holding a vigil outside the Republican Guard headquarters in Cairo where it’s believed Morsi is being held by the military which detained him after ousting him from power on Wednesday.

The incident prompted the Freedom and Justice Party – the Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm – to call for “an uprising by the great people of Egypt against those trying to steal their revolution with tanks.” It’s urging the international community to intervene and “prevent a new Syria” scenario."

This morning on radio Glenn discussed the escalation in violence in the region (…and how confused Bill Krystol must be about the massive failure of the "peaceful revolution").

"Emergency services say more than 320 were wounded in the sharp escalation of Egypt's political crisis," Glenn explained. "Where's Bill Kristol when you need him?  Is this another Jeffersonion uprising? Did he dig Thomas Jefferson up and is he okay? That's what I want to know."

"I think Jefferson was one of the guys that climbed up that wall and threw Morsi opponents off that wall, killing them," Pat joked, referring to an alleged report that Islamists were throwing Morsi opponents off a high wall on the roof of a building and then beating them in the head with sticks.

"Also, Tahrir Square seems to be almost festive and protesters chant against the Islamic president who's overthrown in a video posted by the Muslim brotherhood and unidentified woman cries out as men attack her. The group from which former president Morsi hails claims the attack occurred in Tahrir square. Human rights watch reports a sharp rise in sexual assaults since earn Morsi protesters took to the streets in record numbers," Glenn continued.

In fact, there have reportedly been 100 rapes just last week — most of them gang rapes.

"The rights group says the latest attacks follow an all too familiar pattern since mass protests began.  Men force a girl or woman away from the people she's with, rip off her clothes and assault her.  Passersby join in on the attacks, which range from a groping to gang rape that have lasted more than an hour in the public square," Glenn said. "One woman said they made a more tight circle around me.  They started moving their hand all over my body, they violated every inch of my body.  So much traumatized I was only screening at the time.  I couldn't everyone speak, I cann't cry for help.  I was just screaming.  The only way these women can be rescued is by volunteer groups in women's organizations.  They ever an -- they have organized a system.  Once they are alerted they send in volunteers to take the women from the mob around, but uh notice there's no police action, nobody else doing this.  It's women."

Sadly, that's hardly shocking news in the Middle East, where in most countries woman are treated as second class citizens at best.

President Obama, who previously hadn't taken a stance, has come out in support of ousted President Morsi.

"He's standing firmly behind the Muslim brotherhood," Glenn said. "The people don't want it.  The people don't want him.  Why all of a sudden are you for the Muslim brotherhood?  I thought you were for a glorious revolution.  We'll let the people decide.  The people don't want it. Why are we back the Muslim brotherhood?  It's curious, isn't it? Everything that we said would happen has happened, except for the caliphate, but that's coming.  Everything we said, everything we said they would do."

In fact, what Glenn believed would happen during the first uprising appears to be happening now.

Do you remember when this first started, I didn't say that the Muslim Brotherhood was going to be it. I said it would be El Baradei.  Remember him?  I said this was a move from George Soros' international crisis group.  That's Samantha Power plays.  She is Cass Sunstein's wife, same up with the responsibility to protect, which is the reason why we went in to Egypt and Libya, and we had — we have a responsibility to protect, if there's human rights abuses going on," Glenn explained.

"Well, the international crisis group wanted El Baradei.  That's the guy that they wanted," Glenn continued. "Well, that's not the way it worked out."

Some are now claiming that one of the frontrunners will just go in a take power with the military — allegedly El Baradei.

"Now is anybody involved with Soros or the International Crisis Group, are they involved this time and are they working behind the scenes this time to get El Baradei?" Glenn asked.

After all, these are the groups that used social media to assist in the overthrow of former Egyptian leader, Mubarak.

Pat also pointed out that it is now against the law from Egypt to receive the $1.5 billion dollars in aide from the United States.

"There are two separate laws preventing it," Stu noted.

"But watch them do it anyway," Pat responded, noting that John Kerry already skirted the law and sent it this year.

Given the men and women occupying the White House claim to stand firmly against a so-called "war on women", one would think providing aide to a country that doesn't do anything to stop women from being raped in crowded streets in broad daylight would be out of the question. But apparently that's not the case.

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.
