The Most Terrifying Thing About Trump's Speech Didn't Come From Trump

Editor's Note: The following article is based on Glenn's monologue from The Glenn Beck Program, delivered Friday, July 22, 2016.

You pay me to do a job, and you pay me in time. You don't actually fork out anything. You spend time, which is far more valuable than money. Why have you given this time to me? You have given this time to me because sometimes I say what you're thinking, and it's good to be validated --- it's good to feel that validation.

Lately, I've said things that maybe you're not thinking and it hacks you off.

That's happened to me in the past. I'm earning my money today, because I'm telling you the things that have to be told, that nobody wants to hear.

I'm fortunate. Because of the membership of TheBlaze, I'm only responsible to my God and to my family and to you. I'm not beholden to anybody else. So let me say what I thought last night.

I watched the speech from two perspectives. One, from my own and the other from the average person who really doesn't follow all of this stuff and is really frustrated. Most Americans are tired, and most Americans see the problems, but they don't necessarily know the root of the problems or how to fix them.

Trump Nails the Problems Facing Americans

I've told you for two years now, these are the problems:

• I don't feel like I belong to anything anymore.

• I don't feel like anybody's listening to me.

• I don't have any levers of control in my own life.

So reading that speech last night, Trump answered all three of those things.

His whole speech was, "I know you don't belong to anything because I'm an outsider too. I know you feel like you don't belong." What did Ivanka say? "I'm not a Republican. I'm not a Democrat."

"I feel like I don't belong," is what America is saying. I don't belong to the Republican Party. I don't belong to the Democratic Party. I don't know if I belong even to this country anymore, because I don't feel like anybody is speaking my language.

So his whole speech, he says, "I know you feel you don't belong, because I'm an outsider too. I'm not like these guys." The next thing he says is, "I hear you. I hear you." And he's saying that almost with every single line where you're like, "Damn right, somebody is finally saying it."

"I hear you."

It's a brilliantly written speech. Those people who feel like they're losing their country, losing their job, brilliantly written speech. "He hears me. And I don't have any controls over my own life because there's chaos and corruption in everything. I have no control."

This is the most important part of the speech last night.

So I just told you the good things that I saw in the speech: I saw a speech that was written well, that understands the psyche of a portion of America, and a growing portion of America, that is mad, not listened to, disenfranchised, has no control over their lives, and wants it to stop. And I understand it because I feel that way too.

History Repeats Itself

I have studied history: American history, South American history, European history. I have specifically studied revolutions. You've known this because I've talked about it for 15 years. But I've always paid attention to the left, because the left is usually the revolutionary. But I told you early on, the pendulum swings, and you don't want to give one side or the other this much power because when the pendulum swings and there is an event or chaos, someone will grab it. It just depends on who is in power.

In our own history, Woodrow Wilson, he rounded up the Germans and the Italians in World War I. Rounded them up. Put them in a concentration camp. It wasn't FDR that was the first one. Wilson did it --- 170,000 people.

Then the Japanese in World War II. And it's because they had, A) a problem with those people themselves, personally as presidents. And then, B) it was popular to be a nationalist, and they could say, "There's something different about them," and point to them. Extraordinarily dangerous, in our own history. It goes much worse in South America and in Europe. And I don't think I need to use the examples.

Three Troubling Things About Trump's Brilliant Speech

Let me give you three things that he said that are bothersome.

1. "I am not going to let companies move to other countries, firing their employees along the way without consequences."

What the hell is that? That has nothing to do with our system. Zero. A president -- a Congress cannot stop a company from moving outside of the United States. They cannot give them consequences for doing what's right for themselves and their shareholders. We may not like it, but that is the free market.

2. "Nobody knows the system better than me."

Now, what did he mean by that? He was talking about the corruption in politics. And he gave a funny face after it, because he was like, "Yeah, I played the game. I was the one pulling the strings of Hillary Clinton." Okay, so he's admitting that he was corrupt.

And then he says something even more disturbing.

3. "I alone can fix it."

Here's why this is disturbing: Donald Trump and his children --- and look this up --- they have been quoted several times as agreeing with the racehorse theory. This is a late 1800's progressive medical viewpoint that is like crazy eugenics stuff. Nobody talks about the racehorse theory anymore.

This is a step even above the racehorse theory. Thomas Carlyle is the guy who came up with what's called the Great Man theory. And, again, this went to Nietzsche and Hegel. And the Great Man theory is: There are great men who come along, and they turn history. And by studying them, you begin to see your true nature.

Now, it's dicey because it can be twisted into progressivism and socialism and communism --- collectivism, pretty easily. Carlyle admired Napolean and Muhammad and Luther. Hegel picked this up. Nietzsche used it. But this is a step beyond what Carlyle was even talking about.

I'm going to pull it all together and warn you in the strongest possible way to take a deep breath and look at what is right in front of you.

Please listen to my warning. You can dismiss it all you want, but I have a responsibility to say it. And I hope that I'm wrong.

Bone-chilling and Terrifying

Last night, Donald Trump's speech was bone-chilling and terrifying.

I hope that I am wrong, but he is displaying all of the worst tendencies of a nationalist, populist, progressive candidate. And that historically in and out of America never works out well.

I want you to go back, for those who have been with me --- when we all thought it would come from the left --- I told you, "Warning. Warning. You're going to have to be very aware and know what your principles are, or you will be scooped up right along with it."

I told you that trouble would come from the inside, that the government would throw things into such disarray that people would be afraid and they would see trouble on their streets and they would cry out, "Good God, we need someone to stop it!" And there would come someone who would say, "Oh, I hear you. I hear you, and I will stop it for you."

Bottom-up, top-down, inside-out.

I said that it would come from a national populist or a communist.

RELATED: The Progressive End Game: Top Down, Bottom Up, Inside Out

I want to give you two other pieces. In my very first book, The Real America, I gave a similar warning. And it was the only chapter that anyone ever talked about, and it was always talked about in a negative way because they didn't read the chapter, they only read the headline.

The title of the chapter was "Jesus and Hitler Have One thing in Common." And what was that one thing they had in common? They could look at the hungry, lost, and desperate man, and say, "I will feed you. I will fix your problems."

Jesus was the Savior, and so only through him is there food, is there light, is there life. Now, if you're not a Christian, then you don't believe that. But that's what Jesus meant: Only through me is there redemption. But Jesus is a separate category. We're not talking about redemption. Collective salvation is what Barack Obama and Marxists look at, that together we'll make it.

A nationalist usually doesn't say, "It's through Jesus." They don't say, "It's all of us have to be saved." It's saying, "I'm the only one that can save you. Come through me, and I will save you."

Donald Trump last night said, "I am your voice," which was tip-off number three. When he said, "The crime and the violence that afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning January 20th, 2017, safety will be restored" --- he said that once. He said, "I am the law and order president." He said that twice.

"I will fix these problems." He said that on every problem. That's top coming down because the bottom is rising up.

The Real Great I Am

When he says, "I am your voice," he's saying something different. And the people chanted it back to him. Ivanka said something really disturbing last night, and nobody picked up on it that I've heard.

Let me say what she just said, "On January 17th, 2017, with my father, all things are possible."

Now, if I wanted to be snarky, I would say she's just plagiarized the Bible. There's only one other person that I know that has ever said that, who had the authority to say it --- "With my Father, all things are possible." But that, again, was Jesus Christ, whose Father is God Almighty.

"With my father, all things are possible." Empty vessel. Come to him. Put your wishes, your hopes, your dreams.

And his song at the end said it all: "You don't always get what you want, but you just might find, you get what you need."

"I'll make sure. I know what you need, and I'll get you what you need. You're not going to get what you want, but I know what you need, and I'll give it to you."

Yes YOU Will

One last thing: What did I say the winning slogan would be? What was the campaign slogan of Barack Obama?

"Yes, we can."

I said the guy who captured the spirit of, "yes, we will," would be the winner.

Something extraordinarily terrifying happened last night, and it did not come from Donald Trump. The bottom is rising up because the government has caused so much chaos, that there is fear in the streets.

And so, the bottom rose up in a populist, nationalist way and they cried out, "Somebody help us!"

And somebody at the top said, "Oh, I will help you." You may not get what you want, but you'll get what you need.

And he is telling you, "I will fix this for you because I'm Mr. Law And Order. And there will be law and order --- you want to move this company out of this country, you will not do it, and I'm Mr. Law And Order." Now, you may not get what you want, but you're going to get what you need.

I said, "The winning campaign will be led by a leader who convinces you to chant back, 'Yes, we will.'"

But how foolish was I because I had half the puzzle piece. I told you the bottom would cry out and the top would come down. Little did I know the power of one individual that could convince those people who are in fear not to chant back, "Yes, we will," but "Yes, you will. Yes, you will. Yes, you will."

They put all of their hopes, all of their dreams, all of their fears, all of their needs into a vessel --- a man --- and said, "Yes, you're going to fix my problems. You're going to deliver us from fear. You're going to bring back the jobs. You're going to crush those who have been oppressing us. You're listening to us, and they're not. You will continue to listen to us."

One person called in earlier today and said, "What he said last night that he would do, he will not do because it's not his history." That's what she said. She couldn't be more wrong.

RELATED: What Did Glenn’s Listeners Think About Trump’s Acceptance Speech?

What he said he would do last night was crack down, tell people the way it is, restore what he believes is right, damn the consequences.

He does what he has to do to get it done. And the crowd cheers. He will do what he said he will do. Oh, he'll restore it. He will come down. The top will come down, as you cry out, "Save me, save me. Yes, you will. You will save me." He will do that.

The Cost of This Monologue

I'm a businessman. I'm talking to a crowd of people who don't know what to do, or a majority of those who believe they have to vote for Donald Trump because they have no other choice. I'm a businessman. I know what this monologue is costing me: A heavy price.

Somebody has got to speak the truth. I beg you, please proceed with caution.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."

Twitter is full of fake communists. Privileged teenagers and 20-somethings who tweet about Karl Marx from their iPhone, safe inside their parents' house.

A recent example of this is the "What is your job on the Leftist commune?" meme. It began as a tweet from some anonymous Twitter Marxist, asking "What is your job on the Leftist commune?"

She continued, "I'm gonna be leading discussion on theory some days, making clothes from scraps other days, and making lattes whenever needed."

The tweet got thousands of likes, retweets, and comments. Things like, "Bringing everyone water. Pouring tea and hot cocoa for folx in the reading alcoves. Checking in and doing a pause-to-breath with folx."

By the way, "folks" is spelled with an "x" for some reason.

Other commune occupations included "proofreading pamphlets," singing, archery, cooking, crotchet, "guiding embodiment practices," tarot card reading, "identity politic lawyering." Therapist, librarian, prostitute, and "puppy kindergarten teacher."

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

A magical place where "there are no painters but at most people who engage in painting among other things," which allows "everyone sufficient free time to take part in the general affairs of society — theoretical as well as practical," so that "there are no politicians but at most people who engage in politics among other activities."

Don't you know that communism is all about leisure and good vibes? A playground full of puppies and lattes.

Marx refers to "idle time" as a time for higher activity. He calls it "time for the full development of the individual."

Me Time. A life of spa days.

Generation Z is the first digital generation. The first generation to be born inside the internet. So it's no surprise that they have fallen for this kind of Marxist nonsense. If someone convinces you that Marxism will free you from work, of course you'd want it.

Now they're quitting their jobs in droves. The media is calling it "The Great Resignation," but really it's just a new version of Marx's anti-work movement.

Gen Z are incredibly progressive. And they expect the government to be involved. Decades of Marxist activism have finally convinced a generation that the point of work, the point of life, the point of government, is activism.

Pew Research Center found that seven in ten "members of Gen Z are more likely than older generations to look to government to solve problems, rather than businesses and individuals."

Seven in ten of Gen Z believe that the government should do more to solve problems. A majority of them are not proud of America, a majority of them hold negative views of capitalism.

They believe Marx when he says that Capitalism is only good for producing its own grave-diggers. We know that this is actually a description of communism. Actually, communism is much worse. Because it always results in mass graves.

They haven't realized that that the world that Marx foresaw is long gone. It failed. Repeatedly.

They don't realize that, even on the page, Marxism doesn't work. Because ultimately the greatest flaw of Marxism is that it forces us to choose between productive slavery and unproductive freedom. Either way, with Marxism we can never be free.

"The Great Resignation" is ultimately a crisis of freedom, identity, and exhaustion. It is, as noted in a recent Gallup report, an expression of great discontent. Gen Z feels like they have nothing to lose and nothing to gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain. They just need to have a little patience.

For the most part, Americans adhere to the libertarian maxim, "As long as you're not hurting anyone…." It's our undeniable belief in the goodness of the people around us. If you've traveled out of the States much, you know this to be true. There's a spirit inherent to America, and it is overwhelmingly good in nature.

Marx's utopia would ruin us. It would make us as lazy as Marx. A man who lived off other people his entire life. A man who had no loyalty to any nation because no nation wanted him. He was stateless. Do you realize how awful a person has to be for them to be stateless?

Maybe Gen Z just needs to see America at its finest.

Marx's utopia would quickly become disgusting. It would leave us feeling empty. Hopefully, they realize this before it's too late. For their own sake. Because, if America ever actually fell to communism, they would be the first ones against the wall.

When the government plans to spend $3.5 trillion that it doesn't have on a loose definition of "infrastructure," it's a good idea to know what's actually in it.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck revealed some of the expenditures Democrats hid in the bill, like a 10-fold increase in fines for employers who don't comply with the government's COVID-19 mandates, "equitable" bankroll for Biden's Build Back Better agenda, and "climate justice" funding.

"Let me tell you what's in our infrastructure bill, the $3.5 trillion bill," Glenn began. "Nancy Pelosi quietly tucked an enforcement mechanism into the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, passed it down to the budget committee, and sent it to the House floor. It's something you should know about, on page 168. I know, why read it? It's 2,465 pages."

Glenn pointed out the huge fees for certain businesses that refuse to comply with the Biden administration's proposed vaccine mandates. The fees could be as much as $700,000.

"Up to $700,000 ... that will kill all companies that are noncompliant. Kill them. That's 80 million of us who work in companies that are going to be fined in that way, if they don't bow the knee to the king," he said.

Glenn and Stu Burguiere went on to discuss more Democrat "wish list" items hidden inside this reconciliation bill, such as establishing "business incubators" who are authorized to disperse tens of billions of dollars to startup businesses in underserved areas, including the formerly incarcerated, and exclusive to businesses less that five years in operation or in "the planning stages."

"These sorts of businesses are the most risky place to put your money. Well, that matters when it's your money. But if it's not your money, who cares how risky it is. It's our [taxpayers] money so they don't care at all," Stu noted.

"Well, there's also $5 billion for climate justice block grants to pay for community organizations for, among other things, facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes," Glenn read. "Wait a minute. 'Facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes'? Organizing votes — that's what it sounds like."

"This is essentially all of us funding the fever dream of Barack Obama," Stu said.
