Glenn: You cannot remain silent. One way or another, you will be counted.

Remember when Glenn said that Valerie Jarrett's family had an FBI file? He was called a hate monger, a conspiracy theorist, and a racist. It turns out he was right, but the progressives don’t even care. The radical pasts are being whitewashed, the country fundamentally transformed. It may feel like it’s too late, but you must take a stand. Glenn believes this audience will play a role in saving the country, and the time to unite is now.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors.

GLENN: Years ago, we told you the story of Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett. We told you how they came together. We told you that Barack Obama, everybody in his family had an FBI file. And everybody in Valerie Jarrett's family had an FBI file. We were called hatemongers. We were called racists.

PAT: Conspiracy theorists.

GLENN: All these kinds of names. It has now been verified --

PAT: Yeah, but just by the FBI.

GLENN: Yeah, just by the FBI, that Valerie Jarrett's family -- her father, her grandfather, and father-in-law all had an active FBI file because they were hard-core communists.

PAT: Under investigation by the US government.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

PAT: Her dad, pathologist and geneticist, James Bowman, extensive ties to communist associations and individuals, according to his lengthy FBI file.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

PAT: In 1950, he was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage. Bowman Was also a member of a communist sympathizing group called the Association of Interns and Medical Students.

He moved to Iran to work, according to the FBI. And we all know that.

Also, her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, also another big-time Chicago communist, he's the one that had all the association with Frank Marshall Davis, right? Who was Obama's --

GLENN: Uh-huh. Communist friend and mentor.

PAT: -- community friend and mentor.

GLENN: Uh-huh. So we have -- we have all of this. Now it doesn't matter. We have been tainted as conspiracy theorists. They have been white-washed. They're communists.

And, you know, you cannot -- again, I'd like to hear the turnaround story of the president. Okay. So you have communists in your life. Okay, you grew up with a mom and dad that hated America. Grandparents that hated America. Frank Marshall Davis, who is -- is really one of the spookiest guys you'll ever meet.

And that's knowing that Jeremiah Wright is down the line. You have all these people. Tell me your turning point. Because you could have a turning point. You could have all these people in your life. You could grow up hating America and then you could go, you know what, I was wrong about all of that. He's never had a turning point. Nobody's ever asked him. Same thing with Valerie Jarrett.

So what does this mean? Nothing at this point. Nothing. Nothing. Except the people that are leading you in Washington do not view this country the same way. The fundamental transformation of America is something that has been planned for decades. Decades.

It started with Woodrow Wilson. It was -- it was picked up by radicals in the 1950s and 1960s. Communist radicals. Those communist radicals had children, and they are currently in power. This is why the government of the United States makes no sense to most Americans.

It's why we're violating our Constitution. Because they do not recognize that Constitution as something sacred as we do.

I want to talk to you here. And I want you to listen to me. And maybe only 10 percent of this audience will hear this.

But it's that 10 percent I'm counting on. I have told you from the very beginning that I've had a feeling, probably starting in 2005 or 2006, I've had a feeling, this audience is going to play a role in the saving of this republic. Now, I don't know how it's saved. I can't tell you how it's saved.

We passed all the exits. I begged America to get off all the exits. We passed them all. Next stop: Cliff.

The bottom of the canyon. I don't know how we save it. Maybe we save it in remnants in pieces. Maybe our children hold it in their hearts. I don't know. Maybe we turn things around so dramatically, that we do save it intact as it is.

But I felt that for a very long time. I have told you that I have had promptings. And if you don't believe in promptings, that's fine. Whatever. I believe that God speaks to all of us. All of us. He's speaking to you.

But it's all hands on deck. And I've said for a long time, I don't even know how to do any of that stuff, and it doesn't make any sense.

And I know that what we're supposed to do is things like we did last Friday. It's why we're kicking things off in Birmingham, Alabama. I think Birmingham, Alabama is going to be a place that restarts the country. It's known for all of the bad things that happened in the '50s. I think Birmingham, Alabama, is going to be known for all of the good things that happen here on out, just like Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston is forever going to be known for its good people, and I think Birmingham is going to be next on that list.

The South will rise again, and this time it will save the country, not divide the country.

But I've told you for a while, and many people have not understood. And I'm begging you now to try to understand. I'm begging you now to take your life and your time seriously now. Far more seriously than you've ever taken anything before. I am -- I am issuing a call. Please, please, I beg of you, this is far more serious now than anything when we started the Tea Parties or anything else. This is it.

The gay marriage ruling is about to happen. We told you last hour what that means. You could lose your job. The world will change. Now, the other one won't happen overnight. But your First Amendment right is going to go away. Possibly your job. My job.

And the world also will change overnight if we have a massive terror attack. If Greece collapses, I don't know how that happens, but that's the beginning domino of what sets the European theater on fire.

At some point, the last domino falls, and we've got nothing. We have to be men and women of character. We have to stand.

You know, there's a symbol now that is being spray-painted over in the Middle East, and it basically looks like a U with a dot over the center of the U. Do you know what that means?

They spray paint it -- they're now spray painting it on doorways. A U with a dot over it. That means Nazarene. That means somebody who worships the Nazarene is in this house. That means, if you're spray-painted, that means they're coming to kill you and your family and burn down that house.

That's what's happening in the world. These guys are so sick over in the Middle East, they have now built cages and put GoPro cameras on the cages. And they're putting them down and sinking them with people in it in the pools. They're drowning them and then watching them. And putting them online. They have now taken explosive cord and wrapped it around eight people's necks and blown their heads off.

Evil has been unleashed.

Last night, I posted on Facebook, I posted that I was going to be speaking at a church here locally. And it's a megachurch. This is a big church. It's a great church.

Ed Young is the pastor there. Good man. They do a lot of really great stuff. People started posting: Wait a minute. You're a Mormon. You can't talk there. I would never go to a church if a Mormon was talking. Then somebody else started posting: Well, that's a megachurch. Don't ever walk into megachurches, because those megachurches, they're in it only for the money.

Somebody else posted: Well, it's you Christians -- what are you? Crazy? Are we insane? Have we lost all perspective? Do we not know what time it is?

We better come together. We better come together for reconciliation and not winning. Just reconciliation. Put our differences aside. Love over revenge. Charity over restitution. Hope over fear. Courage over apathy and cowardice.

If I were to be hit by a bus today, I could at least go to my grave saying, I did my best to prepare this audience. I did my best. I didn't know how to do it any better.

There's a reason we're all together. There's a reason you're listening now.

I think we're still a little early. We still have time to prepare. But my gut says the world is going to catch up. It's going to catch up to us before we're ready and before we want it to. But I still tell you and I believe this, this is the audience that can and will change the course of history. We can bend the arc of history towards justice and reconciliation and love. Away from hate. Away from discord.

Charleston changed the course. There are many that want to bend the arc of history towards hate and violence and race wars and civil war and destruction.

Those who want to stoke the fires of hatred, they lost! Because people stood together. People of all different color. Of all different faith. From all over the world. They stood in Charleston.

And so what happened? The people who wanted to stoke hate, they didn't know what to do. They didn't know how to deal with you.

Darkness does not understand the light. And so they went for something else that could divide us: The Confederate flag. Let's go there. Well, Governor Haley disrupted their plan.

Because, really, is a flag -- even the American flag -- I'm sorry, even the American flag -- it's the principles. It's not the symbol. And there are far too many important things -- when you looked at that, I don't care what side of that argument you were on, when you looked at that, did you not say, really?

This is what's -- this is the problem? The flag, that's the problem? That's going to solve our issues?

No.

But this is what they do. They are not honest brokers, and they want to discourage you, and they want to break you. They need the bottom to rise up and cry out: Somebody do something! Because they are prepared to do something. They are prepared to squash the violence.

We must stand in the gap. That's our job. To stand in the gap where no one else will stand because they're too afraid. Courage is contagious.

It begins with raising your hand right now and saying, never again is right now. We said this insanity would not take place again. Not while I was on alive. Raise your hand and be counted because I warn you, you will be counted. Silence in the face of silence is itself evil. Silence in the face of evil is in itself evil.

You cannot remain silent. You will be counted.

Do something. Stand together.

I will be counted. I'm thinking about spray painting on my own house the symbol of the Nazarene. If that's what makes me a target, so be it. Target me first.

We must love all men. How Hillary Clinton can be getting the hate that she is getting online right now from the left because she said in a black church, all lives matter, and they are saying to her, no, they don't. It is black lives that matter!

You know what side is right. It is not black lives. It is not white lives. It is not blue lives. It is not unborn lives. It's not old lives. Young lives. Special lives. Rich lives. Poor lives. It's all lives matter!

Life is what sets us apart. We are a people of life! Other cultures are a culture of death. We are of life!

All lives matter.

Get your hotel room and join me 8/28 and 8/29 at Birmingham, Alabama. It's time we stand. Get your church to come. Get a bus organized and come. And it's time for all of us to stand together, and then leave that place with new friends and so when there is a -- when there is something that happens like it did in Charleston, we don't have to put out a call. We're already there. We're standing in the gap. When Ferguson happens, we're already there. When Baltimore happens, we're in the gap.

We stand. We say, enough! We say there are true eternal principles, and we will follow them, even to the jailhouses, even to the death, because I worship the Nazarene.

Never again is now. If you'd like to contribute, you can do it at mercuryone.org. If you'd like to join us, more details coming up. But get your hotel room, 8/28 and 8/29, in Birmingham, Alabama.

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.
