DISTURBING: You will not be able to unsee this video

What happens on the ranch, really needs to stay on the ranch. Over the weekend, Glenn post a pretty disturbing of what life is like on the ranch. It turns out cows don't magically turn into delicious, delicious steaks. No, there is a lot of really, really gross stuff that happens in the middle - including castration of the calves. But how it happened on Glenn's ranch may have you completely rethinking ever eating a steak again, no matter how good it tastes.

On Saturday, the rancher who runs Glenn's farm and ranch invited a real cowboy to help with the procedure. It turns out he uses an old-fashioned method of castrating the cows: He uses his mouth to pull out the testes.

"I thought that he was joking," Glenn said. "Seriously. He bites them off."

"He does make a little cut first and then he goes in and gets personal. Gets up close and personal by biting [the testicles] off," Pat said.

Glenn explained that there is a vein that will self-seal if pulled out, but will bleed if it's only cut. The cowboy's nontraditional method is actually better long-term for the cow.

"He did this last year or the year before," Glenn said, "They recovered twice as fast and with zero infection because it self-seals."

Now, Glenn was only physically able to assist with two of the castrations and never did more than wrestle the calves to the ground. Stu, a vegetarian, was critical of both his lack of involvement and the posting of the graphic video on Facebook.

"Your ranching is hilarious. It's like, it's this absentee sort of like you pop in to do one-tenth of a percent of it and call yourself a rancher. That's the Glenn Beck way," Stu joked.

"I can't believe so many things about this. Number one, I can't believe that you were involved in it. I can't believe that you took a video of it. I can't believe you posted that video on Facebook to your millions of followers," Stu added.

Glenn told Stu the same thing he told his kids - if you're going to eat meat from the farm you have to understand how it gets from the farm to the table.

"We try to be very, very humane. You know, that's why we don't need to brand because we don't need to brand them, et cetera, et cetera. But you do this. And my point on this - when I talk to the kids. The kids are like, dad, I don't want to see this. Look, you don't have to do it and you don't have to see it more than once. But you have to say, I see it. I know what it is," Glenn said.

Watch what happened below - and again, WARNING! Graphic content:

This is how we spent our sat morning.Believe it or not, this helps the calf heal twice as fast and zero infection.WARNING YOU WILL NEVER UNSEE THIS! Crazy! I didn't know people did this!

Critical race theory: Struggle sessions

China has a rich legacy of torture. During the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese Communist Party used a variety of torture techniques. These became more and more advanced over time. This included public humiliation and public executions.

One specific kind of public humiliation is what's called "The Struggle Session." It was a punishment reserved for people who committed wrong-think. The point was to publicly degrade the person until they swore allegiance to the Communist Party. Their focus is on the elimination of the power base and/or class position of enemy classes or groups. It was also a warning to everyone watching: If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

It was a way to punish anyone who so much as disagreed with Communist Party dogma.

These struggle sessions often took place in busy areas.

They also took place at universities, like the struggle session for the professor You Xiaoli, as recounted by Anne Thurston, in Enemies of the People:

You Xiaoli was standing, precariously balanced, on a stool. Her body was bent over from the waist into a right angle, and her arms, elbows stiff and straight, were behind her back, one hand grasping the other at the wrist. It was the position known as "doing the airplane." Around her neck was a heavy chain, and attached to the chain was a blackboard, a real blackboard, one that had been removed from a classroom at the university where You Xiaoli, for more than ten years, had served as a full professor. On both sides of the blackboard were chalked her name and the myriad crimes she was alleged to have committed...

The scene was taking place at the university, too, in a sports field at one of China's most prestigious institutions of higher learning. In the audience were You Xiaoli's students and colleagues and former friends. Workers from local factories and peasants from nearby communes had been bussed in for the spectacle. From the audience came repeated, rhythmic chants ... "down with You Xiaoli! Down with You Xiaoli!"

"I had many feelings at that struggle session," recalls You Xiaoli. "I thought there were some bad people in the audience. But I also thought there were many ignorant people, people who did not understand what was happening, so I pitied that kind of person. They brought workers and peasants into the meetings, and they could not understand what was happening. But I was also angry."

Struggle sessions have been revived, and exported to America. They come in many forms.

Forced apologies.

Beatings in public—like the mob attack on Rand Paul.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was sucker-punched.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was stabbed for being white.

Anti-racism seminars, like the one in Seattle.

Or the one involving Sandia Labs executives seminar.

The long-awaited New York Attorney General's report on the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is out — and it is bad for Cuomo. The Democratic AG concluded that the Governor did sexually harass multiple women during his time in office.

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck questioned is the AG's report would be enough for Democrats to condemn him and call for his resignation? This is what the #MeToo movement was started for, Glenn noted, if Gov. Cuomo doesn't resign quickly, that says a whole lot about today's Democratic Party.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.
