'We'll Pay You In Sandwiches': Glenn Offers Bill O'Reilly Job at TheBlaze

Could Bill O'Reilly be the newest addition to TheBlaze?

While interviewing O'Reilly on radio Friday, Glenn offered the former host of The O'Reilly Factor a job at TheBlaze. Let's just say it wasn't the most glamorous offer ever.

"I would like to say publicly, honestly . . . I would like you to work for The Blaze," Glenn said. "I would pay you in sandwiches like you can't believe, but that's a different story."

As tempting as a smorgasbord of deli meats and hoagies might have been, O'Reilly countered with a slightly more tangible request.

"You want to say something nice about my books? I could use that," he said.

Glenn made another lighthearted attempt.

"Now, I tell you what. What do you think about this? I'm serious about writing a new book calling Killing O'Reilly. It will put in your crazy conspiracy stuff about George Soros," Glenn said, laughing.

Maybe O'Reilly would take a second look if Glenn upsized the offer to include chips and a drink.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: I would like to say publicly, honestly, and I know you're not going to get into this, so just shut the fat trap. It's why I would like you to work for The Blaze because I could not get the cable coverage by myself because not powerful enough, unless you have a giant corporation behind you. And when you have that, then you're beholdent for somebody. But if we could unity our powers as opposed to evil, but that's another conversation.

STU: We offer minimum wage and benefits.

GLENN: I would pay you in sandwiches like you can't believe, but that's a different story.

BILL: You want to say something nice about my books? I could use that.

GLENN: No. No. Now, I tell you what. What do you think about this? I'm serious about a new book, writing a new book calling killing O'Reilly. It will put in your crazy conspiracy stuff about George Soros.

BILL: I can't believe this guy. Some things are absolutely true and we went through it and now he has to mock me. You're doing what the left wing press does.

GLENN: No, I don't know what you're talking about.

BILL: You're an old school guy. I know you haven't read old school life in the left lane because your concentration span is about 15 seconds.

GLENN: What are you talking about?

BILL: Perfect for a old school mom, grandmom, and then killing the rising sun, one of the best war books you will ever read.

GLENN: I read that one.

BILL: Celebrating the heroism of the Americans in the Pacific.

GLENN: Yeah, I read that one. That's really good.

BILL: Did you really read it?

GLENN: I really did. Don't push me.

JEFFY: Odds of reading that 100 percent, Bill, are very slim.

GLENN: No, I read that one. That is really good. Now, Bill.

BILL: Yes.

GLENN: I'm thinking about writing killing O'Reilly, and it would tell some of the things that would happen behind the scenes there, you know? At FNC about, you know, things that, you know, -- I'm just saying, you know, you could --

JEFFY: Come on.

GLENN: If you could just jump in on that together.

BILL: No, I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to do it. I just don't think it's the right thing to do. What I want to do down the road is --

GLENN: Lots of cash, Bill. This will get him. Lots of cash.

BILL: It doesn't matter. You can't buy me.

GLENN: Oh, come on. How long can you live on that 25 million-dollar settlement? Seriously?

BILL: Why would you take anything that's printed in the media seriously? Why would you believe it when you know they'll throw anything in there? They'll say anything, they'll print anything.

GLENN: So wait a minute. Are you saying -- because you had 100 -- you just signed $100 million contract.

BILL: I mean, again, how would you possibly know that?

GLENN: Well, that one I happen to know.

BILL: You do not, Beck. You're paying me in sandwiches?

GLENN: What I'm saying is did you get more or less than 25? Because if you got more, can I borrow some?

BILL: Yeah. You don't need money, buddy. Money will corrupt you.

[Laughter]

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly, great to have you. BillOreilly.com. Sign up for his podcast, buy his books, blah, blah, blah. Thank you very much, Bill. Talk to you again.

BILL: All right. Glenn.

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.

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."
