Jeffy’s mother-in-law has mob experience

Not the organized mob (that we know of), but rather angry mobs. While discussing the fruitlessness of violent mob tactics, Jeffy revealed his mother-in-law was the victim of an angry mob after the MLK assassination, describing a horrifying subway ride that resulted in a severe beating just because she was white.

GLENN: Okay. Let's talk a little bit about the riots.

PAT: They're blocking bridges. They're stopping people from going to work. This is starting to spread all over the country. Second night of protests.

GLENN: It's all right. This is Occupy Wall Street 2.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: That's all this is. They think they have a chance. America is not going to be with these radicals. They're not going to do it.

PAT: I hope that's true.

GLENN: It is.

PAT: I hope that the people who are protesting realize that this time, there's almost — there's bipartisan support here. There's biracial support here.

GLENN: It's important to say, we don't know what happened in the grand jury room.

PAT: They said it a hundred times yesterday.

GLENN: We don't know what happened in the grand jury room, and so you know, I don't know what they were instructed that they had to pay attention to. I don't know what the evidence was. I wasn't there. But that's — what I said yesterday is I would like to see — I mean, we need transparency here. They need to say — to the to the American people, what — why the grand jury didn't think this was wrong.

PAT: And they need to do that because we saw what happened with our own eyes.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: So —

GLENN: So it's they got it wrong and the system needs to be fixed or we don't know something that they know. Either way, we need to know that. When it comes to Michael Brown, we know that there were black eyewitnesses that did not come out in front of the American people because they were afraid for their own life and protection. But they went and they testified that, yes, the cop was right. And so that's what really set the Michael Brown thing up, was the testimony of African-Americans who went into the grand jury and said, no, Michael Brown was trying to harm the police officer. It was self-defense and it was — it was a righteous shooting. That wasn't — they weren't out in front of the press because they were afraid. But at least we know that. Here, we don't have anything but the videotape that shows this — these cops looking like they're out of control. So it's important, but you'll never get this, because de Blasio wants this kind of action on the street. So you're never going to get this. But it's important for the American people to see what happened. How was justice served in this? Tell us why that decision was made. It's important.

PAT: I think it is. You know, and here's the case where we agree with the sentiment. It looks to us to be a miscarriage of justice. But there's a right way to go about it and a wrong way to go about it and I think to punish commuters on their way to or from work is the wrong work.

GLENN: It's the wrong way.

PAT: It's just going piss people off.

GLENN: When you go back and look at the riots, the workers' world riots in the 1930s and you will see this is exactly the same kind of stuff with FDR. They set Oakland on fire. They set several cities on fire. They were beating people in the streets. I mean, it was bad. This has happened before.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh, when you talk about knowing your family history and what happened, over Thanksgiving I learned something new about my mother-in-law that I never knew before. She was here fresh in the United States from Ecuador in New York City on a subway the day of Martin Luther King —

GLENN: Hold on.

PAT: There's an important element here.

GLENN: Please tell me that somehow or another your family members here illegally and there's someway we can get you deported.

JEFFY: So anyway, the night that Martin Luther King was assassinated, she's on a subway and she was beaten almost to death for being — looking white. And the violence was just there. And a person who tried to break it up was eventually stabbed by this crowd and that was just for being on the subway and looking white.

PAT: Did he survive?

JEFFY: No, I don't think he did. She wasn't sure. She said she didn't think he didn't make it and she almost didn't make it. But at first —

GLENN: It meant a lot to her that somebody saved her life and died for her.

PAT: That's the nice way to turn this on —

GLENN: Right.

PAT: On the Jeffy clan.

GLENN: Meant so much she didn't even check to see if the guy lived.

PAT: Here he is making —

(overlapping speakers).

JEFFY: No, no.

GLENN: You're right. You're right. Those happen so rarely.

PAT: They happen so rarely.

GLENN: I didn't mean to — go ahead.

PAT: Go ahead.

GLENN: That is your moment to shine.

JEFFY: We're long gone done now.

GLENN: No, go ahead. Somebody in your family that people wanted to beat to death. What a surprise.

(laughing).

JEFFY: She wasn't part of my family then. I went out looking for people like that.

GLENN: They knew. Your daughter is going to marry somebody in the future and I know it and I got to beat you to death. So that's amazing. That's amazing.

PAT: Yeah, it is.

JEFFY: But it's just random. Doesn't matter. So that's when you stop traffic, you make people mad.

PAT: And it doesn't help the cause.

JEFFY: It doesn't help anything.

GLENN: This is what happens — honestly, this is the kind of stuff that happened with Gandhi.

PAT: And you've said it a million times, this is why MLK won because it was peaceful.

GLENN: And it's why Gandhi won. It's important to understand, Gandhi did not win because he was doing a hunger strike against England or against the oppressors. He didn't. He did a hunger strike on his own people. You want violence? You want to beat people in the streets? You want to bring a gun? You want to burn something down? I'm not with you. And he was so beloved. He said I will starve to death — I will not eat. I will starve to death before I will stand with you. And if you decide to disarm, if you decide to be peaceful, I'll eat. I'll have water. But until that time, no. Now, where is Jessie Jackson? Where is Al Sharpton? Can you imagine if anybody on that side would have so much credibility that they would stand and up say, until you come to the table, I will not eat. Not preaching — Gandhi was not preaching to the man. He was preaching to the people on the streets. That's the difference. That's the difference.

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.

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

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.
