#NBCraceHate: You won’t believe what CNBC said about Ted Cruz

Glenn opened the radio program this morning with some egregious audio from CNBC yesterday involving Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). During a segment about the weak jobs report, which CNBC’s Steve Liesman seemed to attribute to Sen. Cruz, Liesman asked for some “Mexican music” to be played while they talked about Cruz.

“So I want to play the audio of CNBC yesterday and what CNBC said about Ted Cruz. They are now calling the jobs numbers ‘Cruz numbers.’ They are blaming now a lackluster number in job creation on Ted Cruz. Can we just think about the lack of personal responsibility here? This president has never taken responsibility for anything a day in his life,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “And so now they are blaming the job numbers on Ted Cruz… Why are they so afraid of Ted Cruz… You don't spend your time, your treasure to take apart somebody that isn't making an impact.”

“They are terrified of Ted Cruz, terrified, because every Saul Alinsky tactic is coming out, every single one,” Glenn continued. “In fact, CNBC can't even get his Cuban heritage straight. For some reason, they said this yesterday:”

“Can we get some Mexican music? What does that mean,” Glenn asked. “Are you calling him a bean eater? Is that what you're saying?”

Could you imagine what the backlash would be if someone asked that African music be played while talking about, say, President Obama? That individual would no doubt be off the air the very next day.

“You can't even say ‘a chink in the armor’ and be on the air. You can't even say that. These guys can say, ‘Can we get some Mexican music,’” Glenn asked disgusted. “First of all, what does that mean? He's not Mexican. You want to call him something, call him American or maybe Canadian – if you want to go down the birth certificate road. What does that mean? He's Mexican? Is that a slam on Mexico? What a racist statement that is.”

CNBC happens to be the sister network of NBC and MSNBC, both of which have enjoyed their fair share of controversy.

“Let's just go down the road of crimes perpetrated by NBC,” Glenn said. “They are the ones that edited the tape making George Zimmerman out to be a racist. They edited the tape to make him a racist. What are the other things?”

“They edited the tape of Mitt Romney during the Wawa speech and made him look like a buffoon,” Pat added.

“Ed Shultz ran a report of Wolf Blitzer, in which he made Nazi references throughout to try to paint him in a bad light,” Stu explained. “He called the segment ‘Blitzerkreig.’”

After rattling off a couple of examples, Glenn then asked his listeners to get in the action by tweeting other examples of NBC’s low journalistic standards using #NBCraceCrimes.

“Please help us: #NBCraceCrimes,” Glenn said. “I would really like to see because I contend NBC has turned into – I mean long past Pravda into race hate. Who else can get away with that? Who else besides NBC can get away with that kind of race hate?”

Another way to let CNBC know you will not tolerate this kind of content is to contact the individuals responsible. Glenn shared the following Twitter handles on radio this morning, and urged the audience to share their opinions clearly but politely.

Leisman has since issued a formal apology for his remarks, saying he meant no offense by his words and his choice of "Mexican music" had nothing to do with Sen. Cruz's heritage. But is it too little too late from a network that has a history like NBC?

“Wow, are they terrified. The Lucifer Effect looks at the dark side of each of us, and this we should pay attention to because NBC has chosen its path,” Glenn said. “Instead of enlightening and lifting up, they have chosen the path of darkness, by saying all of the racial stuff that they have said, by embracing the squashing of the human spirit. Instead of saying, ‘Look, we can all disagree on things’… they have chosen the authoritarian way.”

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

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?
