The Strange Things Glenn Said Under 'Truth Serum'

Glenn recently took a trip to the back doctor. After taking Propofol, he started talking very "honestly" to the nurse and his wife.

"I had this procedure done at like 1:30 in the afternoon. Five o'clock, my wife comes into the bedroom. She said, Well, weren't we a little talkative? You had a few things that were interesting to hear," Glenn recalled.

What exactly did he say? Read below or watch the clip to learn more about his bizarre experience.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: So I go to this doctor -- Pat and I go to the same back doctor. And he's -- he's unbelievable with backs. Dr. Vera in Texas here. And he's unbelievable. Really competent. The only guy that I would ever trust sticking, you know, a needle into my spine.

And I go in. Whenever I throw my back out, once a year, once every year and a half, I'll have to go in and get a steroid injection.

JEFFY: Yeah, you know, after you move in a chair. You don't want to do that.

GLENN: Shut up. Shut up.

PAT: You weren't careful enough. And we were all worried, "Is he going to move in that chair? Because he is sitting there, but will he move?" And you did.

JEFFY: It looked like it. And you did.

PAT: And we were all, my gosh, he shouldn't have moved. He should not have moved.

GLENN: It couldn't get worse -- the last time this happened to me, I picked up a pencil. Remember?

PAT: Yes.

JEFFY: Oh, that's right. Oh, that's right.

GLENN: I picked up a pencil, and I threw my back out.

JEFFY: That's right. We thought you were healthier now.

GLENN: This time I just moved in my chair.

PAT: He moved, and it was over.

GLENN: Yeah, the muscle tone on me is nonexistent.

(laughter)

But, anyway, so -- oh, my gosh.

So we go in, and they give you -- what is it called? Propofol? How do you say that?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: It's the stuff that killed Michael Jackson, right?

JEFFY: Yes.

PAT: Oh, yes.

GLENN: And it's -- it's truth serum.

JEFFY: Ooh, wait. What?

GLENN: Yeah, it's truth serum.

PAT: Yeah, this is nothing you want to get anywhere near.

GLENN: Yeah, Jeffy, you got to stay away from this stuff.

JEFFY: No. No.

GLENN: So I have said to my wife, I don't know how many times -- every time I go under, "I got to bring my phone because I got to hear what I'm saying to them. You know, what am I saying to the doctor? What are they saying about me?" You know, they could get you to say anything. Okay?

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: And they're like, "No, no. It doesn't happen."

JEFFY: I should probably take you next time just to make sure you're safe.

GLENN: Yeah, no.

So I go in, and I -- and once -- they roll you onto a table in this room that's about 4 degrees. And they strip you down, and they stick your butt up in the air. And then they say, "Count backwards," and you're out. Okay. And -- oh, I forgot. They put wash all over your back to sterilize your back. And then when you're out, then the doctor comes in, jabs a needle in your spine, and calls it a day

PAT: First they make sure that wash is about 38 degrees below zero, when they put it on. They chill it nicely before they put it on.

GLENN: I asked them nicely if they could put it in the freezer to get it a little colder.

PAT: Yeah.

JEFFY: So far, you're close to a lot of my sites.

(laughter)

GLENN: Okay. So -- so I come back in apparently -- this is according to my wife. And we get home. And you're not supposed to sign anything. You're not supposed to make any major transactions. Any decisions. Sign any contracts or anything for like four or five hours after. And they recommend you just go home and try to get some sleep.

And so -- I had this procedure done at like 1:30 in the afternoon. 5 o'clock, my wife comes into the bedroom. She said, "So you awake?" And I said, "Yeah."

Well, weren't we a little talkative?

JEFFY: Oh, boy.

GLENN: And I'm like, what?

And she said truth serum. You had a few things that were interesting to hear.

And I said, "Oh, dear God, what did I say?"

She said, I'm rolling back into the room, and I apparently look directly at the nurse and said, "I am so full of gas, I was holding it so I wouldn't fart in the doctor's face."

(laughter)

And she said, "It's okay. That happens a lot."

PAT: Oh, man.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: Then I turn and I look at my wife, and out of the blue, I apparently say, "I hate the little Christmas Italian tchotchkes you've got all over the house, especially the ones in the kitchen." And then I'm out. I don't say anything.

PAT: And does she actually have those in the kitchen?

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. And I do hate them, but I've never told her I hated those. I had no reason to tell her I hated those. I had about an hour of backpedaling.

PAT: That is weird. That is weird.

JEFFY: There's no backpedaling after that.

GLENN: She said, "You were passionate about it." She said, you said, I'm sorry that I -- or, I'm so full of gas. I didn't want to fart in the doctor's face.

And, you, I hate those Italian tchotchkes you've got in the house.

JEFFY: That's never ever going to go away. You know that now. Never going to go away.

GLENN: No.

JEFFY: Every year: "I'll just put these over here, the ones you hate. These will just be right over here." Never.

GLENN: That's exactly right.

JEFFY: That's always there.

GLENN: Can you imagine.

PAT: And, by the way, I've been cheating on you for a year and a half.

GLENN: Can you imagine if you really had something bad?

PAT: Wow. That could be it.

JEFFY: Yes, I can. I can imagine.

PAT: Yes, you can.

JEFFY: I can imagine.

GLENN: Jeffy can't walk. Why don't you get that spinal thing?

JEFFY: No, no. I'm fine.

JEFFY: We're good. I'm fine. It's good to go right here, Doc.

GLENN: She was not happy with me. She was not happy.

PAT: Oh, man.

Seriously, you'll never hear the end of it. Every year.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

And I'm the laughingstock. Now going back to the doctor, and I'm the guy who was, you know, worried about farting in his face.

Now, they apparently had a conversation, and they were laughing about it. Her -- my wife and the doctor.

JEFFY: It does always happen.

PAT: It's got to happen a lot.

GLENN: Always happens.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Can you imagine how horrible of a --

JEFFY: It's embarrassing.

GLENN: What a -- I don't want a job where somebody is always farting in my face. That's not a job I want.

PAT: Or ever.

GLENN: Or ever. Ever.

PAT: I don't want a job where it ever happens, let alone always.

GLENN: I want a job where that never happens.

PAT: Right. Like here. Hopefully there's no reason --

GLENN: It will never happen. I've spent 45 years, or 40 years in this industry, never has that happened.

PAT: No.

GLENN: He might make more money or have a sweet job or whatever it is. But he all the time has people farting in his face.

PAT: Not good.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Not worth it. I don't care how long you went to medical school. I don't care what the payoff is now. How many millions of dollars a year you make, not worth it. No. No.

(laughter)

GLENN: I asked --

PAT: I'll take my high school education and sit right here.

GLENN: Once you have --

JEFFY: We see those, which are getting a little old, but we still see them. The mothers and fathers recording their kids after the dental work, and they tell them something bad. And they cry.

GLENN: Oh, I think that's horrible. It's horrible.

JEFFY: Everybody laughs. Ha, ha, ha.

GLENN: No, that's horrible.

JEFFY: I know, but Tania should do that with you. It's horrible with the kids, but you --

GLENN: Yeah, it's horrible with the kids. No, I think that would be fine.

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.
