'We are better than this': Listen to the robocall that targeted Democratic voters in Mississippi

A day removed from Senator Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) eleventh-hour victory over Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel (R), the questionable tactics employed by the GOP and Cochran campaign are coming to light. From the robocalls used to woo black voters to the future ramifications of winning an election because of Democratic voters, it looks like politicians and pundits alike are going to be analyzing this race for a long time. On radio this morning, Glenn couldn’t help but hope “we are better than this.”

“The story on how Thad Cochran beat Chris McDaniel in Mississippi is beginning to become much more disgusting than we even thought yesterday, and we're better than this,” Glenn said. “We are absolutely better than this.”

Glenn believes the situation in Mississippi proves a couple of things. For starters, you can never underestimate the desperateness of the establishment.

“First of all, never, ever underestimate what the GOP is willing to do,” Glenn said. “The GOP is willing to sell their soul to the devil. They are willing to do anything it takes to win. Don't ever underestimate anyone that's been in Congress or senate for 30 years. They have racked up all kinds of bonus points, all kinds of favors that they are due, and they will call them in.”

The Daily Caller has released the audio of a robocall seemingly aimed at potential Democratic voters that harshly criticizes the McDaniel campaign and the Tea Party. Because Mississippi has an open primary, the Cochran campaign actively courted predominantly black communities.

Listen to the audio below courtesy of the Daily Caller:

While it is unclear exactly who paid for the robocall campaign, it is believed to have come from a GOP affiliated PAC.

“So what did they just do? They said, 'This is a racist. This is a guy who doesn't like Barak Obama,’” Glenn explained. “That is the Republicans that paid for this. So don't talk to me about how much they don't agree with the President because they just got a bunch of people to vote, to make sure that Chris McDaniel didn't stop the President's agenda.”

In addition to the race baiting, the robocall focuses primarily on one thing: Free stuff. The New York Times spoke to a handful of voters in Mississippi who voted for Cochran and that message seemed to have resonated.

Hattiesburg resident Jeanie Munn told the Times she believes McDaniel “represents a threat to the state,” citing a vote he cast in the State Senate against a new nursing school building at the University of Southern Mississippi.

“Okay, so she voted because she wanted the free nursing school,” Glenn said.

The Times also cites Roger Smith, a black Democrat, who was apparently paid to campaign fir Cochran. “I don’t know too much about McDaniel,” he said, “other than what McDaniel’s saying: That he’s Tea Party, he’s against Obama, he don’t like black people.”

“That's your informed electorate,” Glenn quipped.

Based on the people quoted in the Times article, this was a common theme among voters in the state. Furthermore, an op-ed from the New York Times editorial board explains the “debt” Cochran now owes the people of Mississippi – i.e. the Democrats who put him over the top.

Ultimately, looking at the results of this particular race, Glenn now better understands what Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has been doing in recent weeks. While he believes it is a “dangerous game,” it may be the only way to curry the favor needed to rise up the ranks.

“I think this is why Rand Paul is playing the game that he's playing. I personally think it is a very dangerous game. I don't like the way Rand Paul is conducting himself in business… [but] I know why he is doing it,” Glenn concluded. “He's learned from his father: You can't go it alone. You have to have the party mechanics on your side. And if those people from the party are not on your side, you're decimated. And Chris McDaniel just saw this.”

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.
