What happened when Sean Hannity called the Obamacare hotline on his radio program?

After President Obama gallantly told the nation that they should call the Obamacare hotline if they are experiencing difficulty accessing the exchanges online, Sean Hannity decided to take the President’s advice by calling the hotline live on his afternoon radio program.

“Did you hear what Sean Hannity did yesterday,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Pat, when's the last time we called out and did something like this, put people on the air?”

“It’s been a long time,” Pat responded. “It’s really hard to do now.”

Hannity, who first had to navigate through the automated menu, was eventually connected with representative Erling Davis.

“You are on the radio, you are on the Sean Hannity radio show,” Hannity informed Davis.

“You’re on the radio. Is that OK with you? You have to say ‘yes’ if you want to be on.”

Davis gave her consent, and Hannity began to pepper the representative with questions about call volume and signing up for Obamacare.

Listen to the radio segment below:

When Hannity explained to Davis that he has been having problems enrolling using the healthcare.gov website, Davis explained the system is expected to be down for the next 42 hours.Based on the President’s remarks in the Rose Garden yesterday morning, you would assume that people could then register over the phone, but alas, that is not the case.

“So no one is able to get in, but if they call us we can help them fill out an application as long as they went online to create an account first,” Davis said.

“Well that’s the point, I can’t get online to create an account, so how would I be able to create the account if the website is down for the next 42 hours,” Hannity asked.

“You would have to wait until those 42 hours is up,” Davis replied.

While Davis was sympathetic to the plight of those attempting to signup for Obamacare, all she could offer was a meek word of inspiration.

“Yes, sir, and I understand your frustration,” she said. ”We get calls like this everyday, but we just encourage people to not give up and just try until you get in. But nobody won’t be able to get in until like 42 hours later.”

Glenn was particularly struck by Davis’ encouragement to “not give up.”

“Did you hear what she said? That we know it's hard. We know people are having trouble, but we tell them not to get discouraged and not to give up,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “Can you imagine If the President of the United States would just say those words about the free market system, about people trying to make it in life? Just don't get discouraged. Just don't give up. It's worth it in the end. But unless it's a government program that you have to stand in line for, he won't say that. It's worth it in the end. Life is worth it. Independence is worth it. Self esteem, all these things that you gain from just not giving up.”

“And like signing up for Obamacare, it's going to be hard from time to time. It's going to be really stinking hard. But work through it,” Pat continued. “Sometimes you may be out of work for a year, or two years, fight through it.

“He speaks from experience, Pat does,” Glenn explained. Pat was once out of work for an entire year, and a friend of his just recently found work after two years of unemployment. As the unemployment rate remains above 7%, it would be nice to hear the “don’t give up” mantra from the President of the United States every once in while, but this Administration only offers such encouragement when it pertains to a government handout.

“It's amazing that is the script that this Administration gives,” Glenn said. “Don't give up. Don't give up.”

“As long as it applies to their healthcare program, don't give up,” Pat interjected. “Because we are there to take care of you.”

“Or any government program. Stand in any line. Don't give up. Don't ever let anybody tell you that you can't have this program, this free thing from the government,” Glenn continued. “Don't ever give up on anybody saying you can have this free stuff. Don't ever give up. But you got to give up because this doesn't work. This other system over here, it doesn't work. They keep telling you that you can make it and you are trapped. And you won't make it. So come over here and stand in line. And once I get you in line, just don't give up because it's worth it. My gosh, how evil is that?”

Davis revealed to Hannity she had been provided a script to read to callers advising them of the glitches in the system, and Hannity asked her to read it aloud for his listeners to hear.

“Thanks for your interest in the health insurance marketplace. We are having a lot of visitors trying to use our website right now. This is causing some glitches for some people trying to create an account or log in. Keep trying and thanks for your patience. You might have better success during off-peak hours like later at night or early in the morning. We’ll continue working to improve the site so you can get covered,” Davis said the script reads.

“This is bull crap. Listen to that. That is such bull crap,” Glenn said. “These guys try to image themselves as Apple. Would Apple ever do that to you? Would Apple say, ‘Call us back at 2:30 in the morning’? They would never ever do that. They would not lie to you.”

“Look what they are doing. They are training you. Training you to just get over it. There's nothing you can do about it. Just stand in line. This is why Marxist countries end up standing in line for toilet paper,” Glenn continued. “It's just incredible.”

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.
