Did Glenn just admit socialism might actually work?

“Socialism actually does work.”

That is probably not a statement you expected to see on this website, let alone hear Glenn say. But, on radio this morning, Glenn explained the very specific instance in which socialist and totalitarian principles actually work quite well. And, in this particular situation, socialism actually works in tandem with freedom.

Socialism actually does work, and I do believe totalitarianism is the best form of government… in my home.

I'm willing to subsidize my children. They do live in a socialist household. I am willing to take care of then, even if they don't work – up to a point. And when it comes to totalitarianism in my home, my wife and I will decide what our children eat. We will decide where they go to school. I will decide how much money they have access to. I will decide how much television time they have access to. I will decide when they get up and when they go to bed, what temperature the house is… I'm totally down with totalitarianism. I will decide when they leave the house. I will decide when they can date. I will decide when they need to be back. I will decide who they can play with. I will decide who they can't. I will make their church decisions for them until they are old enough to live on their own.

That's where totalitarianism ends. That's where socialism ends because when they become adults, they are free to live their lives as they choose. We call that liberty.

Ask people: What is liberty? ‘Oh, it's freedom.’ Not really. Not really… Liberty comes from doing the right things and then choosing how to live your life. You could have freedom to do anything… Freedom doesn't last very long unless you understand responsibility too, and that's why I have a totalitarian home. And it becomes less and less totalitarian as the kids become more and more responsible. I am trying to teach them to have liberty and freedom – a way for them to go out and make their own way, make their own choices.

The government is not the parent of my child. It is not the parent of me. Period. The government doesn't have a right to tell me what to do. The government doesn't have a right to tell my children what to do or how to do it. I will make those decisions and I will live with those consequences. I will make the decision, and I will live with the consequence. That's liberty. Whether they are good or bad, I made the decision. I have a right to be free.

But, as more and more people are born to single parents, as more and more people are born to broken homes and to broken people, the government sees more and more opportunity. The government says it is an opportunity to become people's parents because we have to be their parents. ‘It is about the children!’ No, it's not. It is about totalitarianism. It gives the government a chance to control not just who's born in poverty but to control everyone. You think they really want to help the children? More than enough money has been spent over the past 50 years to help the children… It doesn't help the children. It causes dependency. It causes despondency. It causes poverty. The cycle continues.

Socialism, totalitarianism, I'm totally fine with that - in my own home. No place else. So God help me – or should I say – so God help us because we actually know the truth and we know the truth comes from nature itself and nature's God. I'll serve God. I'll serve my family. I'll serve my neighbors. But Washington, leave me alone.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
