Thomas Paine and George Washington Disagreed — And They Were Both Patriots

With no intention of talking about the Sean Hannity situation and making it a back-and-forth between the two, Glenn felt compelled to say a few more things on radio Thursday morning.

"There is a lesson to be learned here, and I want to show you that this is exactly the time that I have been, hopefully, preparing people for, including me," Glenn said.

He reminded listeners of a time when some would say in anger, "Come this way," and many people would follow.

"We need to be an audience, we need to be a group of people that stand in our own places and say, 'No, no, don't go that way,'" Glenn said.

Martin Luther King said that love will always win, that light will always conquer the dark.

"The only way to bring healing is not with more anger, rage or hate, but it is listening to one another, trying to understand where someone is coming from and saying, 'I come unarmed. You can do what you want, I'm not swinging back,'" Glenn said.

With that, he played what Sean Hannity said yesterday afternoon:

SEAN: When you add the Glenn Becks of the world that just -- you know, I've heard Nazi references on his program. I have heard him refer to me, "How does Sean Hannity sleep at night?" Frankly, I sleep well because I kept my promise. I serve my audience, and I'm keeping my promise now.

"Okay, I want you to know that so have we. We have kept our promise. Do you have the thing from 2014, I think it was? In 2014, I got on the air, and I said, 'Look, here's the thing. I'm not going to vote for the lesser of two evils anymore,'" Glenn said.

From Election Day, November 4, 2014:

"If you remember right, a year and a half, two years ago, we all looked at each other, and we made each other raise the hand and swear to one another that not only we wouldn't vote for the lesser of two evils, but we would help each other because we're going to get weak," Glenn said.

"Stop us," Stu remembered.

"We did," Jeffy added.

Pat then played audio from the 2013 archives:

GLENN: I really will not vote for another person. Never before in my life have I said this. I just voted at a stupid local election. I mean, jeez, for the love of pete, I voted. I will not vote for another Republican like Chris Christie or Mitt Romney. I will not vote. I will skip it. I will not cast my vote for that.

STU: I'm pulling the calendar out right now.

GLENN: Put it. Put it.

STU: And I'm going to put a 2016 date on the reminder.

GLENN: And you know what, I want you to chastise me. I want you to play this -- let me talk to future Glenn.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Glenn, if you -- let me look right into the camera: Glenn, don't do it. Don't do it. They have fooled you again. They have played all those games again. And if you're thinking right now, well, but the other person -- doesn't matter! Stop selling your values out! Stop it right now! You play that.

"Three years ago. Three years ago," Pat said.

"So this is three years ago. If anybody thinks that my stance has anything to do with Hillary Clinton, anything to do with Donald Trump, anything to do with being angry about Ted Cruz, it's none of that. It's none of that," Glenn said.

"We made a promise to ourselves and our audience," Pat said.

"I said that I am going to stand on principle. That doesn't make me self-righteous. That just makes me exactly like you, Sean. You said you're keeping a promise to yourself and your audience, so am I. It's just a different promise," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

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

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.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

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.
