Is the black community turning on Obama?

Another video shows a crowd leaving smack in the middle of Obama’s speech, raising questions about his support among his base. Politicians are noticing the trend and actively seeking to distance themselves from the President in every way possible. Why are they turning on Obama? Glenn reacted on radio today.

TheBlaze reported:

The Democratic Party is “abusing” blacks in America, according to a group of men in Chicago who have a scathing message for President Barack Obama and “black leadership.”

“Who are the real oppressors in our community?” Paul McKinley, who ran for elected office as a Republican to replace Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., demanded in a video released Monday by Rebel Pundit. “When you hear the words ‘black-on-black crime,’ the first thing you think of is a black man robbing you, a black man breaking in your house. And that is a black-on-black crime. But let’s take it one step further. There’s a black-on-black crime down in city hall, there’s a black-on-black crime down in all the state capitals in America, where black folks are voting against our interests!”

"That is fantastic," Glenn said after watching it.

While this video seems like good news for those who want to see people, regardless of ethnicity, wake up and see the dangers of the progressive machine, Glenn did have a warning for listeners.

Glenn asked people to recall America after 9/11, when there was such an emotional reaction the the terrorist attack that people rallied behind President Bush and the leadership in Congress, and now the pendulum has swung the opposite direction with such vigor people don't know what to believe in anymore.

"The first time I really saw those flags was after September 11 th . They were everywhere. Regular people would just have them in their cars on the highway after September 11 th . Everybody wore a flag lapel pin on television. Everybody was pro-troops, pro-flag, pro, you know, Star Spangled Banner. You name it. We practically dressed like the Statue of Liberty for a while. Now look at us. Now you don't even know what to believe in. Now you don't know what things even stand for anymore. Now look at how the national anthem, does it mean anything? The flag, to how many people, does it mean anything?" Glenn said.

Glenn admitted he has become so disillusioned that he has trouble saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

"We were someplace and we stood to say the Pledge of Allegiance. And I stood up and I put my hand over the heart. We were at church at the Boy Scouts. I put my hand over my heart and I stood. And everybody starts saying the Pledge of Allegiance. [Tania] looked over at me. She elbowed me. What's wrong with you?"

"I'm not going to take in the Pledge of Allegiance. I'm not. I will pledge my allegiance to the principles and the values that created this republic. I don't know what this republic even is anymore. Now, I know this is a controversial thing. The point of this is, think of who's saying this. Think of who's saying this. The guy who did the rallies for America, what, 10 years ago. The biggest flag waver you could possibly find. Think how far the pendulum has swung," Glenn explained.

"Right now, we're at an extreme. Right now we're at almost a revolutionary extreme. Where common sense is completely dead. And I warn you, it will swing back."

"This is why the Republicans are not doing anything about the IRS, if you don't think the IRS will be used by the Republicans, and the Republicans will use the NSA just like this administration has, and they will say, well, you guys did it first, well, you guys did this. At some point all of this apparatus, all of these feelings of vengeance, they swing to the right. That's why we have to set ourselves in the middle. And I'm not talking about the wishy-washy middle. I'm saying the pendulum middle. I'm saying don't swing with the wind. Know what you believe in. Know what your principles and your values are, because those haven't changed."

"If I was taking a Pledge of Allegiance to the principles of the republic, if we all would have been saying that, and in our pledge we would have said what those principles are, honor, integrity, honesty, justice, equality for all, fairness, decency, truth, justice, the American way. Perhaps we wouldn't be in this situation that we're in right now, if we would just remember the principles. And those are the things we have to start pledging our lives to. And not to each other and not in a big group. To ourselves. To ourselves. Because I think this pendulum, I think they have overplayed their hand in every single way."

"The most dangerous time in American history are the next two years. Because this president, this administration, has nothing to lose. They're not playing for the next election," Glenn said. "Enjoy these next few days as we go up to the election, because once the election is done, he's got nothing to lose. And everything to gain."

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.
