Glenn responds to fan feedback after Monday’s controversial monologue

On Monday’s radio program, Glenn offered an interesting qualifier on one of his monologues.

“I don’t know how you’re going to react. I really don’t,” Glenn said. “This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever asked of you because I know how angry you are.”

With that, Glenn asked his audience to consider donating to Mercury One so they could begin to organize aid for the thousands of illegal immigrant children who have poured across the southern border recently.

After hearing about the harrowing conditions at the makeshift shelters in border towns like Laredo, Brownsville, Van Horn, and McAllen, Texas, Glenn decided his “eternal citizenship” took precedence over his U.S. citizenship and it was time to deal with the reality of the situation while simultaneously working to thwart the lawlessness.

Watch Monday’s monologue below:

Glenn’s words caught the attention of a lot of listeners as emails and social media comments – both positive and negative – poured in. On radio this morning, Glenn once again addressed the topic, speaking to both supporters and detractors about where he is coming from and why he will continue to ask for people to consider doing what they can to ensure sanitary conditions for these children.

“Yesterday, I asked you to reach beyond your citizenship of the United States. And this is not something I ever asked you to do before,” Glenn said. “I'm not a ‘citizen of mankind’ gentleman… all that bull crap. I do, however, have another citizenship, and it is higher than citizenship that happens here in the United States. And that's citizenship is the citizen of a kingdom of heaven. [It’s] an eternal citizenship unlike this citizenship, which will fade over time.”

Today just so happens to be the anniversary of the start of the Berlin Airlift, and Glenn reflected on the way the United States came together to aid a group of people in spite of the enemy.

“Today is the anniversary of the Berlin Airlift… The Berlin Airlift was an amazing thing. Here we had taken out all of Germany – our enemies – and then we went and not only rebuilt them, we dropped food,” Glenn explained. “And there were people in the United States of America that were really upset… ‘Don't do it. A, you're going to cause more war. B, you're going to hack off all the countries over there. And C, we've got our own problems over here. We can't help those people.’ But we did. And today is the anniversary of Americans doing something that… was never even thought of before.”

In wanting to ensure those who have crossed the border have access to adequate food, clothing, and shelter, Glenn is not asking anyone to endorse these people’s criminal actions, instead he simply asking that, as Americans, we be good.

“If we want to be great, let's be good. We knew it was just right to feed people,” Glenn said. “And I want to make it very clear: They are illegal. They've got to go home. But… we don't leave people behind – even the people who have caused it themselves.”

Glenn proceeded to read through some of the messages he has received in the last 24 hours. He offered his thoughts on a few of them, while encouraging his listeners to continuing thinking about the situation we currently find ourselves in.

“I hate the fact that doing right is always so hard… It's like disciplining my child. I never understood when my dad said to me, ‘This hurts me more than it will hurt you’… But it's right,” Glenn concluded. “We have to keep our heart, and we have to continue to feel. The minute we stop feeling, the minute we stop caring, the minute we stop loving those who we deem our enemy [is] the moment we've lost America for good.”

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.
