GLENN: Welcome to the program. So very glad that you are here today. Thank you for listening. By the way, been doing something that I've never done before. I'm going to -- I've been talking about reading The Immortal Nicholas with my family and my son. And so starting Monday, live, and this will be only for subscribers to TheBlaze.com/TV, it will not be on the TV network or anything else. This is only on for subscribers of TheBlaze TV. Kind of a Christmas added kind of feature. I would love to read The Immortal Nicholas with your family. So Raphe and are going to read. We read in bed usually every night. Or we try to. And so we're going to read The Immortal Nicholas. And it will be every night up until Christmas Eve. And we'll get through it together. Because it's a great Christmas story. It's the story of Santa. I wrote it a couple of years ago. And it's the -- it was my effort to bring Santa into the fold and back pointing towards Christ. And it's a great story. It is my favorite story that I've ever been involved with or, you know, came up with. I love this story.

STU: It's obviously the exception being, of course, the Christmas Twist, the Christmas story that airs every year. That's obviously a better effort. Your part wasn't that great. Still, it didn't hurt the movie that much. So it's the time of year where people think --

GLENN: Yeah. Stu has a movie on theBlaze network. Again, just for subscribers. The Christmas Twist, which is his -- his salute to Lifetime, to the Lifetime movies.

STU: Lifetime, Hallmark. Uh-huh.

GLENN: And this is almost as good.

STU: And I think it was Hallmark who last year basically --

GLENN: Ripped it off.

STU: I mean, I like to think it was a tribute. But they basically made a serious version of the parody that we did about a Christmas cookie salesperson. So it's basically the exact same movie. And they're playing that again this year. Every time it airs, I get a bunch of messages @worldofStu on Twitter to remind me that they've ripped off our story. But I think that's actually awesome.

GLENN: Yeah. They did. Yeah.

So you can watch both of those things. This starts on Monday. The reading of The Immortal Nicholas. And I invite you to bring your family and just kind of -- you know, you can watch it as it is unfolding. Or you can just download it any time. Watch it with your family.

But my family is kind of sick of hearing my stories. So I have one daughter who wants me to read, you know, Edgar Allan Poe, which we started years ago when she was young. Every Halloween. And everybody else in the family was like, oh, jeez, dad is doing that again. So I'm just looking for new people that want to read these stories. Because I love reading out loud. And I love reading the stories to kids and my family. So if you would like to join us, you can. But only as a subscriber, at TheBlaze.com/TV. So --

STU: Now, that does not -- unfortunately, that membership does not get you access to the company Christmas party, which is happening this weekend, and we're all very excited about it. The -- I will say, the attention and excitement is palpable throughout the entire establishment --

GLENN: I hate this day. I hate this. This is the worst --

STU: You hate it?

GLENN: I hate it.

STU: It's interesting that you would -- because you could stop it. You could stop it.

GLENN: The Christmas party?

STU: You could stop it. You run the Christmas party. You could get us all out of it. Because if you don't like it --

GLENN: Well, I was told that it was something that everybody wanted to do.

STU: A lot of people tell you a lot of things.

GLENN: Here's the thing, I am so open on that. If nobody wants to do this, I am totally good. I am totally good. Only because I don't want to go because I'm just so awkward. I'm a drag at parties. I don't ever know what to say. It's just really weird. And I just stand there in the corner. And everybody is like, oh, jeez, we better go say hi to him.

STU: Go back and talk to Glenn.

GLENN: So what I have done for this Christmas party.

Do you know this?

STU: I don't know it.

GLENN: We are going to play human bowling. And I'm going to be the ten pin. Okay? And we're taking all the managers and some of the other people. We can vote on who will be the pin. But I would imagine I should be the main pin.

And I get into a big bowling pin suit. Okay? And it's only my face outside of the bowling pin suit. And we put all of the managers there. And then two people get into a giant bowling ball. And in the atrium here, they have to move their bodies. They hang on inside of the bowling ball. And with their --

STU: Right. Human force.

GLENN: With their human force, they roll the ball and see if they can roll a strike. So that's my contribution to the Christmas party.

STU: That may juice it up a little bit. I'm actually interested in that.

GLENN: That might.

STU: Have you seen what Vox is doing with their -- with their Christmas party?

GLENN: No.

STU: And this is happening apparently in a lot of Christmas parties now. They are handing out drink tickets to their employees, just to make sure they don't get too rapey. They're a little concerned. There might be a little bit too much rape going on at their company. So they're not letting people drink more than two drinks at the Christmas Party. Because this is what happens. You know, there's a little too much touchy-feely. Little too much -- maybe not enough people asking the appropriate question. May I use your body every time you --

GLENN: Before we leave today, that is so fantastic. May I use your body?

STU: That's apparently the appropriate question you're supposed to ask other employees when you come near them.

GLENN: No. No.

STU: Who says yes to a question like that?

GLENN: May I just use your body for a second? No. No, you may not.

STU: But they're worried that apparently their left-wing staff will start raping each other.

GLENN: Yeah, I do not have that concern.

STU: No?

GLENN: I do not have that concern.

STU: That's good. That's good.

GLENN: There's no special rules or anything. In fact, get into the bowling ball, and bowl the pins. Knock them all down.

STU: Wow. There you go.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, I'm a little uncomfortable with the way you're touching me with that bowling ball, but...

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

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.
