Glenn: The light went on for me this weekend

For a number of weeks now, Glenn has been quite open about the internal struggle he has been facing. On radio this morning, Glenn shared why “the light went on” for him this weekend after spending time with a friend of his who simultaneously called him the “smartest” and “dumbest” man he has ever met.

Composer Clyde Bawden has been instrumental (pun intended) in more ways than one for Glenn over the last few years. While Glenn and Clyde have collaborated on many projects professionally, Clyde’s music has also been a very important part of Glenn’s personal life.

“I probably have listened to his music more than even Michael Bublé's music, and he has really helped me. It's funny,” Glenn said. “It may be the little way that you feel about me sometimes. My voice has been there. Whatever you're feeling or going through, I've kind of been there with you in a way. That's the way I feel about Clyde. He doesn't know it, but his music has been there with me.”

Clyde was in Dallas over the weekend visiting a friend, and he ended up coming over to Glenn’s home and playing the piano for a few hours as Glenn wrote. It was about 1 o’clock in the morning when Glenn finally closed his notebook, and Clyde asked to hear what Glenn had written. Glenn shared a portion the “plea” he had authored this morning:

I know you are trying to tell me, but I'm having a hard time understanding. I can see patterns, but I'm really not good at seeing things that haven't been seen yet. I see a work ahead, I see sorrow, I see joy, but I don't understand it. I hear your call to love. Help me understand. Help me see your footsteps. I will go where you want me to go.

Sensing the struggle in Glenn’s words, Clyde asked what Glenn was so conflicted about. Upon hearing his answer, Clyde called Glenn on of “the smartest” and “the dumbest” guys he had ever met. He then asked Glenn a very pointed question: What do you worship?

Glenn responded that he worships God, to which Clyde asked why.

“His attributes. I worship him because of love and compassion and kindness and charity, truth, hope, all of that. He shows it to me. That's who he is. I want to be more like that. I want that in my life and that's why. That's why,” Glenn explained. “[Clyde] said, ‘Glenn, He's not giving you a job. He's not telling you what to do for a living or how to do your job. He's telling you how to live your life, and he's expecting more from you now.”

Reflecting on his newfound purpose, Glenn said that he began to ponder the life and actions of Jesus.

“I wrote down yesterday on the plane these words: What did Jesus do? All he did was empower people. That's all he did, empower people, period. He never worried about politics. He never worried about the economy. He never worried about his popularity. He never worried about his business. He never worried about any of that crap. None of it,” Glenn said. “He loved his enemy. He taught truth. He lived it every second of the day. He helped others live to be more peaceful. He empowered others: Greater things will you do. He only said the things that he had heard his dad say. He comforted. He lifted up. He mourned. He healed. And that caused a revolution? Yes.”

When Glenn began to piece together his conversation with Clyde alongside everything he was been praying about for the last several months, a sense of clarity arose.

"Gosh, when I'm saying these things out loud, they seem so obvious, and I know I've danced around them,” Glenn explained. “And I told my wife, ‘A bigger change is coming in my life than what happened to me in 2000 when we got married and I got baptized. A bigger change is coming and it's for the good, but it's going to be hard.”

Glenn invited the audience to come along with him on this journey of rediscovery.

“I'm going to try to do some things in my life, and if you want to come along with me, great. If you don't, great," Glenn concluded. "But I think by changing our lives, we'll change the world. And it's the only revolution that can be won. And it's the only one that matters. A little more on this tonight and the coming days because boy, the lights just turned on for me this weekend.”

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?

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.
