Glenn agrees with… socialist revolutionary Russell Brand?

Ok, to be clear - Glenn definitely does NOT agree the socialist revolutionary part of Russell Brand’s comments. That said, on radio this morning, Glenn argued that we must recognize the truths Brand articulated in a very candid interview with the BBC’s Newsnight.

During the interview, Brand openly call for a socialist-style “revolution” and the “massive redistribution of wealth,” he also urged people not to vote or participate in the “facade” that is modern-day politics. In his opinion, “the lies, treachery, and deceit of the political class that has been going on for generations” makes voting a pointless.

“When you hear people talking about revolution in Europe, you should be very concerned because the way revolution is understood in Europe is that the right is fascist and the left is communist. And those are your only two choices,” Glenn explained. “America has so discredited herself with progressivism over the last 100 years, nobody believes in true freedom, nobody believes in the power of the individual, that all men were created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. And everybody in Europe doesn’t look to us as an example. They say, ‘They are just like us. Just like us.’”

“So when you hear people, especially in Europe, talk about revolution, and you talk about hot revolution, people in the streets. Warning. It's not going to end well,” he continued. “If you thought Russell Brand was a total and complete moron before, here he is sitting in a very expensive hotel room talking about how much he hates the rich.”

Watch the interview from Newsnight below:

In the interview, Brand blames his addiction to drugs on the evil corporations. While Glenn found himself in agreement with Brand that “large corporations [i.e. Google and GE] are coopted by the Federal government.” No one can blame his/her addiction on a corporation.

“If anything, the government is doing things to prevent you from becoming a drug addict. Whether or not they should do this. They are talking about substances that cause addiction illegal,” Stu said. “I don't think the government is getting you addicted to drugs.”

BRAND: …also don't feel like they want to engage with the current political system because they see it doesn't work for them. They see it makes no difference. They see they are not served.

REPORTER: Of course it doesn’t work for them, if they don’t bother to vote.

BRAND: Jeremy, my darling, the apathy doesn't come from us the people. The apathy comes from the politicians. They are apathetic to our needs. They are only interested in servicing the needs of corporations. I mean look at the Tories taking the EU to court because they are trying to curtail the bank bonuses. Isn’t that what’s happening at the moment in our country? Isn’t it?

“Stop for a second. The guy is a moron, Stu. But what part of this is not accurate.” Glenn asked. “They don't care about the average person. Government does not care about the average person. They only care about their ‘real’ constituents, the ones who have money, the corporations.”

“Because we know what he is actually saying. He's saying the answer to this is much, much, much more government,” Stu responded. “I know his answer.”

“I know that, but we didn't get to the answer yet. And this is the problem. This is how they are going to win, if we don't recognize that what he's saying in the first half is 80% true,” Glenn pleaded. “Government is not making you a drug addict. That's your choice. That's a Marxist philosophy – that government always controls me. No, no, no it doesn't. Even in a concentration camp. You still have a choice. So the government doesn't control your choices, you do. Beyond that, everything else that he is saying here so far is pretty fair.”

Pat was still not convinced. “I don't know about that,” he said. “I don't know about that.”

“You are telling me that our government – and I know he's talking about England, which is further down the road than we are,” Glenn said. “But you are telling me that our government cares more about the individual than they do their real constituents of power, labor, and corporations?”

“No, but he's saying much more than that,” Pat reiterated. “He's blaming not just the government. He's blaming the corporations – because they make money, they are causing other people to be poor. He's saying it. He's about to. He's blaming his drug addiction on corporations!”

Glenn, however, still believed Pat and Stu were being too narrow minded.

“See, here's the problem. 80% of what he's saying is true. 20% of what he's saying – no. Guys, if we don't recognize, we'll never be able to recognize,” Glenn reiterated. “If we don't recognize that the system is no longer set up to listen nor care about the individual. They will do smoke and mirrors to the individual, but all they care about is the people in power, the people that have money, giant corporations, or labor. That's all they care about.”

“Second thing, I agree, we're erasing the middle class. The world's middle class in the last 10 years is being slowly erased. We are being impoverished. And you watch what is going to happen with the Fed. As they devalue our money, those who are in the know, those who are playing the game, they are going to have money… You won't have it,” he continued. “And so, the government, the elites, the corporations, labor, anybody who is in the special groups, they will be able to survive… We're headed toward cataclysmic shifts on that because we no longer believe in true freedom. His answer to the problems are wrong. His answers are wrong because he doesn't understand what America stood for and really means. But most Americans don't either.”

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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
