A Heartfelt Plea, Nation of Islam and Blood on Obama's Hands -- All in a Weekend

In what is frighteningly becoming routine, Monday's news was once again dominated by stories of a tragic weekend. It started with the ISIS attack in Nice, France. Then, there was an attempted coup in Turkey. Finally, and the nation awoke to learn three officers had been shot and killed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn opened the show reading a haunting Facebook post one of the slain officers posted only two weeks before he was gunned down:

I'm tired physically and emotionally. Disappointed at some family and friends and officers for some reckless comments. But, hey, what's in your heart is in your heart. I still love you all because take hate -- hate takes too much energy, and I definitely won't be looking at you the same. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me or my wife. It was needed and much appreciated. I swear to God I love this city, but I wonder now if this city loves me. In uniform, I get nasty, hateful looks, and out of uniform, some consider me a threat. I've experienced so much in my short life, and these last three days have tested me to the core. When people you know begin to question your integrity, you realize, they don't really know you at all. Look at my actions. They speak loud and clear. Finally, I personally want to send prayers out to everyone directly affected by all of the police shootings. These are trying times. Please, don't let hate infect your heart. This city must and will get better. I'm working in these streets so any protester, any officer, any friends, family -- whoever -- if you see me and need a hug or just want to say a quick prayer, I got you."

The media narrative didn't fit with this shooting because the officer was black, but Glenn dug deeper into who the shooter was.

"Two weeks later, he was executed," Glenn said. "This has nothing to do with Black Lives Matter, because he's a black life. He's a black man. Does his life not matter? This was Nation of Islam."

Glenn reminded listeners the Nation of Islam was responsible for the killing of Malcolm X. Unrest breeds fear and when people are afraid, there are some radical ideas come to the forefront --- and this was on display this weekend.

"I don't know if anybody noticed, but there was talk --- serious talk --- on television about martial law in America. We haven't even hit the tough times yet, gang," Glenn said. "They're talking in Cleveland today, chief of police who says, 'I'm an NRA member. I'm a gun guy. I'm a Second Amendment guy, but can't we just suspend this concealed weapons permit just for a while?'"

Suspending the second amendment is never a good idea and this example just goes to show politicians often miss the mark on these issues. President Obama barely paid lip service to the fallen police officers while glorifying the 'Black Lives Matter' movement and those who were shot by police.

This was not lost on the president of the Cleveland Police Association, who came out with the following statement:

The president of the United States validated the false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the media are pressing out there to the public, validated with his very divisive statements, and now we see an escalation. This has gotten too bad. We need some leadership in this country to come forward and put an end to this. I don't care if it's clergy. I don't care who it is. But somebody has to step up and put an end to it. Because it's a false narrative and very influential people that are politicizing the false narrative. Absolutely insane that we have a president of the United States and a governor of Minnesota making the statements that they've made less than one day after those police-involved shootings. And those police-involved shootings, make no mistake, are what absolutely has triggered this brash of senseless murders of law enforcement officers across this country. And it is reprehensible that the president of the United States has blood on his hands, and it will not be able to come washed off.

Obama may have blood on his hands, but one person has fingerprints all over this rash of police shootings --- Louis Farrakahn.

"In the 1960s, that's what they were doing. In the Summer of Rage, that's what [Farrakahn] was preaching," Glenn said. "'Now is the time. Rise up. Kill them.' He's doing the same thing now. 'Rise up, and kill them.' We have asked for how many years, 'Where is the press on him?' He is fomenting hatred."

It is beginning to look a lot like the summer of 1968.

"When is anybody going to recognize that assassinations are happening right now? And those assassinations are only going to get worse. They are going to get worse," Glenn said. "They are going to spread from cops, I believe, to media figures and also to public officials."

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.
