Glenn's clear message to U.S. soldiers: 'You might serve man, but you answer to God'

With the recent news of U.S. soldiers being told to ignore the abuse of boys by Afghan allies, Glenn took to radio Tuesday with a strong message to members of the U.S. military currently dealing with similar situations.

"If we don't have our decency and our honor, we have nothing," Glenn said. "You think we're on God's side when we listen to His children being abused in the next tent and we're told stand down and do nothing? We're not on God's side. God cannot protect us. Millstone around the neck comes to mind."

He went on, urging members of the military not to listen to those who tell them such pedophilic acts are just a part of their culture.

"If that's true, their culture needs to be destroyed, period," Glenn said.

GLENN: Before he was fatally shot in 2012, Lance Corporal Gregory Buckley Jr. told his father that at night he could hear the Afghan officers sexually abusing 12-year-old boys, but there was nothing he could do about it. Quote, at night we could hear them screaming, dad. We're not allowed to do anything about it. My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because, quote, it's their culture.

According to the New York Times, rampant sexual abuse of children by Afghani officers, otherwise known as bocce bozy (phonetic), or boy play, isn't new. While some US soldiers and marines have specifically been told not to intervene, they have chosen to do so anyway in the face of potential disciplinary action. I want every soldier within the sound of my voice, I want you to listen to me carefully. You answer to God. You might serve man, but you answer to God. And there is no way that you hear this stuff going on, you know abuse of a child is going on -- that is not their culture. And if it is, their culture is evil.

Do not listen to these people who tell you that, "Oh, well, it's just -- all cultures are alike, and their culture is no better than our culture." Yes, it is. Our culture is far superior to any culture that allows men to go and sexually abuse girls or boys, period.

What the hell is wrong with us?

If it means that they court-martial you, let them do it. You will wear it as a badge of honor. You will change the course of our country. Look, I understand, here's one of the worst things that is -- that has happened to our -- to our military. In the last eight years, our military has cut all of the good guys up at the top and is putting all kinds of bad guys at the top and you're doing all kinds of things -- for instance, you're being told that it's okay to abandon a fellow soldier, to abandon people in the middle of a firefight. And you know that's not right. We don't do that. We don't do that with Bergdahl, but we let the guys in Benghazi die.

Now, what's going to happen? The next president is going to come in, and all these guys who have been a part of this culture, that have abandoned people on the battlefield, who have told you to look the other way, that you don't to have worry about what's going on, that's just their culture. You look the other way and don't you dare say anything. All of those people, the next president of the United States needs to come in and fire every single person in the Pentagon that had anything to do with it or was anywhere near it and didn't ring a bell.

I'm telling you that some day, and I hope sooner rather than later, some day this will end. Evil always thinks it's going to win forever. It doesn't last. And you better be on the right side. When they come looking for your name and they're saying, "Well, you were standing around, you didn't do anything about it," you need to be able to say, "Yes, I did. Yes, I did. And here's exactly what I did." And don't you worry about -- I would hire somebody in a heartbeat. You were dishonorably discharged from the military? Why were you dishonorably discharged, "Because, sir, I was told to remain silent while men were abusing young children sexually at night, I couldn't do it." You would have a job with me. More importantly, you'll have your soul at the end.

I'm convinced, as I said yesterday, I think this is one of the reasons why our men and women are killing themselves in record numbers. You cannot tell people to go over -- remember I said -- remember, Stu, when we did rally for America.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I said, "We have to make a promise to ourself that we will not call them baby killers. We will not spit on them. We will not treat them -- we will not be like the generation of the 1960s that treated them like garbage."

STU: Yeah, people called it a pro-war rally, but it was about that, not about war.

GLENN: It was about honor. If we've decided -- I said over and over again in the speech, now is the time to speak out. What I'm telling you is, once the decision is decided -- and if we decide to go to war, you cannot take it out on the soldiers. We must not treat them the way we've treated other soldiers in the past. And that's from the beginning with George Washington. We didn't pay them. We treated them like crap. They just beat the greatest army on the face of the earth, the greatest navy, military force, on the face of the earth, and we didn't pay them. We didn't treat them well. We didn't help them in the end. This is nothing new to the United States of America.

But what is new is the rate of suicide of our troops. And here's why, I believe -- I don't know and please forgive me if you have served and you're like, "Oh, this guy does not know what he's talking about." As a casual civilian observer, what I believe is happening is, you just served in a war that no longer makes sense. You were asked to do things -- look, it's one thing to be asked to go and firebomb Dresden. Now, how many people had nightmares after that of all the people that they killed? But at least you could justify it in your own head. At least you knew who you were fighting against. At least you knew who you were fighting for. Can I ask you seriously what are we fighting for? And who are we fighting against? What are we fighting for if we won't stand up for the most vulnerable, the 12-year-old boys that are being raped by our Afghani soldiers that are standing by us during the middle of the day. How do you sleep at night after hearing those screams?

We'll help you expose this if you have witnessed this, if you have seen this. We will stand by you like nobody's business. And I believe America will stand by you. If they dishonorably discharge you for this, America should go nuts. And if it doesn't, we're done anyway. There's nothing left if we don't stand for this.

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."
