'They edited the heart out of it': Glenn dismayed with how CNN handled his interview with Don Lemon

I am watching Don Lemon on CNN. They are talking to Republican talking heads.

If this is what they think Republican voters are I am so glad that I have NOTHING to do with the GOP.

Does the media even begin to understand that for most conservatives, Obama is yesterday's news? We got it! I believe we are MUCH more offended by Boehner and McConnell and the rest of the GOP establishment.

We expect to disagree with the progressive left. But we have been betrayed and lied to by "our own."

Over that, I, for one, am D O N E with all of them. We are never going to fix our nation by starting with D.C.

Maybe it is because I just spent the day in media and politician hell, but I really am so frustrated by everyone who just keeps bringing it back to what politician X or Y did.

I just saw my appearance on CNN. I recorded it earlier today. They edited the heart out of it. I wish they would have left the real conversation - the meaningful conversation Don and I had.

Nope. They left in the stupid Palin "dog" question and left out my reaching out and begging, pleading and making a real case that those questions and comments are a waste of our nation's time.

We need to stop empowering these political games. Who in the media will be brave enough to have an entirely new conversation?

I wish CNN would post online the unedited interview, because Don and I, who don't agree on very much politically, made real progress as people. Even if it was for just five minutes.

Why doesn't someone dial test something entirely new? Honesty. Truth. Decency. Compassion.

I have just wasted 40 minutes of my day watching the news.

People are dying, 8-year-old girls are being raped right now, homosexuals are being beaten and stoned to death and men and boys are being beheaded and their moms sold into slavery.

I am done with this. If I can't fix my own radio show and get my own show to begin to take action of healing, help and decency then I need to go away myself.

I don't know how much more I can do and fail.

This isn't about anyone else but me. Maybe I need to leave the media and public life and just walk the walk in my own neighborhood and life.

Each of us are going to be held responsible for our own actions and our friends, family and everything that is meaningful is on fire and we are engaging in a clown show or an angry venting.

Both are important, but I just can't do it anymore.

Ben Franklin said around 1773 that he could no longer be with friends anymore. Because most failed to understand the gravity of what was really happening in the world.

He felt almost dirty by talking about normal things. I feel the same way.

God is going to make me account for every moment of air-time, every word and every action I chose to put my effort behind.

I am not the man I need to be.

These times require a Lincoln, Gandhi, Mandela or King.

I don't know if they exist or if any of them would even be listened to today. We have sold our principles for power in our parties. We have lost the ability to reason and we certainly don't even begin to engage in a real and authentic conversation.

I am sorry to be a downer. But it is the truth of how I feel tonight.

Tomorrow, I am going to share the speech I didn't finish at the Capitol today - because we only can stand 10 minutes per speaker. I will ask if CNN will allow me to play the unedited interview (that makes Don Lemon real and really likable). But we couldn't play that because we only have 8 minutes and we have to talk about the latest stupid thing someone has said.

America can listen or not. But maybe sooner rather than later, you and I will just gather under some new "liberty tree" and have real conversations and take real and meaningful action.

No one will cover it... But the best part is:

NONE OF US WILL CARE.

From Orlando, where one man did change the world, but people are working harder than ever to tear him down 50 years after his death.

Good night America.

God lives and He will set things right with or without us.

PS: I am turning off my iPad without proof reading this. So sorry if it doesn't make complete sense, but you get the gist.

I am watching Don Lemon on CNN. They are talking to republican talking heads.If this is what they think republicans...

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.

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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
