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:

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."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
