The White House Should Know That History Has Already Judged Fidel Castro

Editor's Note: The following is based on Glenn's monologue from November 29, 2016.

I cannot take what people are saying about Fidel Castro. The White House won't judge the, quote, towering figure of Fidel Castro. I guess history is going to have to judge him.

Well, history has already judged him. I don't know what we're expecting to find out 100 years from now that we don't know about 1959, 1962, 1970, 1980, 1990. I'm not sure what historians are supposed to find that will make this man into a great man.

Castro took over Cuba in 1959. His right-hand man, you might have seen on the T-shirts or hats or posters around many Democratic headquarters and around college campuses everywhere. Che. They killed an awful lot of people. They promised an end to corruption. They said they were going to uphold the values of free speech and private property.

Instead, Castro imprisoned, tortured, and murdered thousands of people. In fact, he imprisoned and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin did during his reign of great terror. We're all pretty clear on who Stalin is, aren't we?

How about Hitler? Fidel Castro murdered more Cubans in his first three years in power than Hitler murdered Germans in his first six.

Guevara, the main executioner, killed everyone who was in opposition -- journalists, poets, homosexuals, they were sent to labor camps. Others were just executed by the firing squad. Some of them, Che executed himself.

What is it that we're supposed to find out? Are we supposed to find out later that he took a country that was free, that was dynamic, and threw it into Third World poverty? Is that what we're supposed to find out?

Here's what historians will print 100 years from now, when we get far enough away from the people who are currently in charge of the world, when we get away from the dishonest journalists, when we get away from the dishonest media, the dishonest elite, the dishonest politicians, the professors, and the current crop of pseudo historians. No matter how many dictators die, there is always Hollywood, the media, the politician, and the educational system that will keep the killer's viewpoint alive in the heart of new dupes.

Authoritarianism is on the rise all throughout the world. It's happening everywhere. And it's happening in all shapes and all sizes. Fascism, communism, Islamists -- they're all dictators. They all will spell death to their people. And they all have one thing in common: social justice. You listen to all of them -- the fascists, the Islamists, the communists -- they all will claim social justice.

What they're really claiming is socialism, the philosophy of Karl Marx. That's the root of this evil.

It has been around with many different names for a very long time. Some of the early settlers here in America tried to do it. It ended in cannibalism. They did it in the name of God.

But Karl Marx really put a new and fresh and evil face on it. For anybody who is in school now or has graduated, anybody really under 40, you may not have learned this in school, but this is what World War II was really all about: the argument between national socialism and international socialism. The real push was either Russia or something like Germany, or Mussolini.

That's all it was about. And everyone in the world bought into it, except for Winston Churchill. He was the only staunch anti-socialist, anti-communist in World War II, which is why now, if you go over to the United Kingdom, 75 percent of those under 30 have no idea who he is. But you'll find a lot of those people wearing a Che T-shirt. You'll find a lot of people saying, "Wow, history will correct the wrongs of Fidel Castro. He was a great hero. Who is this Winston Churchill?"

You can see the slide. It's happening again. And it always happens the same way.

I spent my week, last week, reading about the end of the gold standard and the way the central banks rebalanced everything in the 1920s and '30s.

These people have not learned any lessons at all.

History does not repeat itself, but it certainly rhymes. And it's happening again. And we will go to war again.

The world will go to war, and I fear, millions more will die for the false choices of Marxism, fascist Marxism, international Marxism, national Marxism, Islamic Marxism.

I want you to understand: They're all the same. A national socialist is just as deadly as an international communist, as a Marxist Islamist is. It's the same ideology. Each are going to teach its followers that it's this group or the other group that's stopping the world from coming together in peace, love. You know, new Audubons, fair banking or the end of the great Satan. But it's the same ideology.

And those who killed all of the artists and poets are the ones that the new poets now extol as great freedom fighters. It's sickening.

Those who were tortured and gunned down by anti-capitalists have new anti-capitalists selling their murderous T-shirts, the Mao purses and the Che hats, all in the name of anti-capitalism.

Castro only lost his battle with time. That's what's so despicable. This murderer ran free, raped and pillaged an entire country and people, since 1959. And the world was muted.

Here's a guy who brought us closer to nuclear annihilation than any other human on the planet. And the press says we're just going to have to wait and see how history judges this tall revolutionary figure.

He should have received a bullet in the head. Unfortunately, God will have to pay him back for the suffering and the murder and the debauchery because the only battle he faced here was time. And in the time he lost his life, the ideas that brought his murder spree to fruition, Marxism has been taken off of life support.

And because of the media and the leftist politicians, and worse yet, those in our educational system, it's been taken off of life support. And Marxism has been sent back home, after seemingly making a full recovery.

Why are we celebrating Castro's battle? It was lost to time. The war is being lost.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

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.

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

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?
