National media has already made Colorado shooter into a pro-life killer

Although many of the facts have yet to be revealed from the tragic shooting in Colorado, some in the media already have him pegged. Not surprisingly, the national media has characterized him as a pro-life conservative.

Today, Glenn and crew broke down what we do know about the man, and the truth points to something completely different. The truth reveals a very disturbed man with a history of inflicting pain on animals and other human beings. The truth points toward him being a mentally ill psychopath.

Watch a segment from the program below:

 

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

GLENN: Yeah, this guy in Colorado Springs, he has nothing to do with the pro-life movement. He has nothing to do with that. Yes, he does. Of course, he does.

STU: We don't know that yet. With the Colorado shooter, we don't have that information yet.

GLENN: No, I got that from the news.

STU: No, we don't have that. The police have not released that yet.

GLENN: No, the news has already made him into a pro-life killer.

STU: Oh, believe me, that's definitely true. The New York Times has a big story on it where the first line of the story is, "Even as authorities say they remain uncertain what precisely led a gunman to attack a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs on Friday," and then an entire column about why this should be applied to conservatives. Like why it's their fault. Why it's something we have to really look at.

Look at the rhetoric, and the political discourse really needs to be looked at. Yet again. It's always on that side. Every time there's something that can be tied to conservatives, it's a reason to look at our political discourse and how harsh it is. Not to even mention, we've been blaming police officers for just wanton murder of black people all over the country. At will, they're just gunning people down constantly in the eyes of the media. That never leads to anything. But it's all about abortion clinic bombings and shootings. Again, we're talking about eight deaths in 40 years.

GLENN: And that includes the three this weekend.

STU: If they do wind up applying.

PAT: And none of them were employees or patients of the clinic. None of them.

GLENN: We're trying to get a hold of -- I want to talk to a local reporter because I just don't trust the national news.

PAT: This is so weird. Because I'm -- I keep seeing from people on Facebook, on my Facebook page, that the shootings didn't even happen at the abortion clinic.

GLENN: Yeah. He had run -- this is what I had heard. That he had run -- he shot -- blood was everywhere. And he ran into the abortion clinic.

PAT: Right. At the end of this thing.

STU: That's where he went to hide out.

PAT: But I can't find that fact in a single story that I read. Have you?

GLENN: I saw it early on.

STU: That he ran in afterwards. I definitely did see that. I want to say it's the Washington Post. I read it yesterday. Find the exact wording of it. But it was worded just like that. This shooting happened. And then he went into Planned Parenthood afterwards. And that's why a lot of people were speculating because there's a bank next door. That it was a bank robbery early --

GLENN: I had that it was a bank robbery.

STU: I don't think that's the case. There's no evidence other than speculation.

GLENN: That's what I had heard early on. When it first broke, that's what they were saying.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: But this guy was not a conservative. This guy was not a religious guy.

STU: Well, we don't know what he was -- it doesn't look like it though.

PAT: No, he's a peeping Tom charged with animal cruelty for shooting a dog with a pellet gun. Those charges were dropped. Accused of domestic violence and threatening numerous others with violence. His voter registration listed him as a woman. Don't know why. You know, I don't know -- he doesn't look like he's transgendered. Some have speculated that he is. But I think there's little evidence of that. He's not a registered Republican. He's not a practicing Christian. He legally bought the guns. He's a big-time pot smoker. He's apparently into partying with women in bondage and all of that stuff. He's not a Christian. Whether or not he's pro-life, I don't know. But he didn't shoot abortion clinic workers or their patients. So...

GLENN: I have news for you. How a guy is a pothead S&M, bondage, party freak --

PAT: Animal cruelty guy. Peeping Tom.

GLENN: Animal cruelty.

PAT: He's not a Christian.

GLENN: But it also doesn't square with, he really cares about babies. Animal cruelty.

PAT: That's true.

GLENN: Animal cruelty?

STU: That's a good point.

GLENN: This guy is a psycho. When you get into animal cruelty -- remember Jeffy, we had those kids down in Florida, this was 15 years ago that were beating animals --

JEFFY: The llama.

GLENN: The llama with the golf club or whatever. And we made a big deal out of it, that those kids should be charged as an adult because you don't beat an animal to death. That is the first sign of a psycho. That is the first sign -- every psychopath, it has always been like, "Well, they should have known when he beat the animal to death with a golf club." Yeah, you should have known. You should have known. Here's another case. This guy is out shooting animals with a BB gun for fun. He's shooting a dog for fun. That's the sign of a psycho, man. That's not the sign of a Christian. That's a psycho.

And it shows also a pattern. He's inflicting pain on an animal. Then in his sexual habits, he likes to inflict pain.

PAT: No. Not a pro-life guy.

GLENN: This is not a pro-life guy. This is not a Christian. This is a psychopath.

PAT: It's also possible that this -- you know, the other thing they're trying to throw around today especially is that he ranted about "no more baby parts." Well, it's very likely that's coming from Planned Parenthood people. I don't put a lot of stock in that. Who knows if he was there with anything to do with Planned Parenthood or anything they've been doing. There's just no -- we've seen no concrete evidence. The police certainly haven't confirmed.

GLENN: Especially if he shot people off that and then ran in for a hideout. I would not put it past Planned Parenthood.

PAT: Not at all. Not at all. They're liars to begin with.

GLENN: He might have come in and said, "You got any body parts around here?" He might have said something about that.

PAT: Might have.

GLENN: Ranting about body parts. What does that even mean?

STU: My understanding is that -- at least the reports are that he said that to the officers. That's what they're saying. I don't know -- again, none of this stuff is fleshed out.

GLENN: None of this excuses his behavior. I want to make it very, very clear. We condemn this guy, no matter if he's an atheist or a Christian. It doesn't matter. We condemn him and everything that he's done.

STU: Oh, absolutely.

GLENN: There's been eight -- if you count these three, there have been eight people that have been killed because of abortion by a -- a pro-life psychopath.

STU: I mean --

GLENN: In 40 years.

STU: Yeah. I mean, obviously a lot of people have made the comparisons to 50 million abortions. That doesn't mean you kill eight people. Obviously. And people who would do or would consider such a thing are awful, horrific people, and you know, the worst people in our society.

But it's such an interesting thing of how you rush to making this into this wave of violence, when really there are -- I don't know if I could name a movement that is politically -- I mean, look at movements overseas. Separatist movements. Think of anything. I mean, you go to environmentalists. They have lots -- I don't know if they have eight murders or not. But it wouldn't surprise me if they did. There certainly have been multiple times they've gone in and taken guns and taken people hostage. They've done lots of terror around businesses and such.

You know, look, eight people. As you point out, 15 people were shot in Chicago and killed -- not that got shot.

GLENN: Yeah, 82 people were shot this last weekend. Eighty-two people were shot in Chicago.

STU: In one weekend.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Eight people over 40 years is -- you want it to be zero, but it's almost impossible to prevent something of that scale.

GLENN: Well, in 40 years, they almost doubled the death toll. They were one shy of doubling the death toll in one weekend in Chicago.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Where should our concern be?

STU: It's a priority. What are you going to focus your energies on? I don't think the pro-life movement is a legitimate target for that. I mean, you know, you --

GLENN: Everything is agenda driven now.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Absolutely everything is agenda driven now.

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.
