‘Changing My Life for the Better’: Glenn Reads a Touching Letter from a Listener

On today’s show, Glenn read an emotional letter from a listener named Jared who wanted to change his life for his wife and daughter.

“You, sir, for me, are a beacon of hope and light in a world that seems to become more dim every day,” the listener wrote to Glenn.

He explained that his wife had been on the verge of leaving him, and “it really caused me to wake up.” In the touching letter, the listener said he wanted to marry his wife all over again to begin a new life with their daughter, citing a time that Glenn quoted 1 Corinthians 13:11, which says, “When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.”

GLENN: So I got this letter in: Dear Glenn, I first started listening to you while you were on Fox. Before then, I didn't really pay attention to much of anything. I saw you on Fox one day, and what you said just made sense.

Oh, you were the one.

I've listened to you almost every day since. I mostly catch you on my drive home from work now. Things in the world have changed a lot since then. There are so many who have digressed in society, so much in so little time. There are a few that have actually made any progress. For me, you are a beacon of hope and light in a world that seems to become -- seems to become more dim every day.

The reason why I'm writing this letter is because something happened in my life recently, where I almost lost my wife and my child, whom I have neglected due to childish influences and things in my life that were still present from my childhood that only consumed me.

My wife was on the verge of leaving me and almost did. It really caused me to wake up. I have since done everything I could to change. Change for myself. For her. My daughter.

The change for God and the betterment of mankind. I remember your words from a few months ago when you said, now is the time to put your childish things away. Time to become a man and take a stand.

For me and my family, it starts with God. I have slowly, but with full commitment, been changing my life for the better, especially where my wife and daughter are concerned. I love my wife and try to prove it to her every day and will for the rest of my life and for all eternity. I will become the better man that she expects of me.

If I may, I would like to ask if it's not too much, I would forever be in your debt, if you would read this letter on the air and ask my wife Charity Murphy, if she would be willing to remarry me again so we can start a new life together with our daughter.

Jared, no, I'm not going to do that. But...

STU: Such a nice moment you've ruined.

(laughter)

STU: Wow, that's a really cool story.

GLENN: So, Jared, let us know what happens. I'm assuming that she's going to say, oh, yes, yes. Hopefully she's listening to us when she says that.

STU: Uh-huh. That would be most appropriate.

GLENN: It would be most appropriate. It would be very inappropriate.

STU: If it was something else. I really hope that goes well. I always get nervous about those things, because I have no idea whether -- she could just be, I'm really not interested actually.

GLENN: Yeah. Do you remember, years ago, we called somebody -- we did something like that. And we called somebody. And -- remember? And she was like, yeah. Yeah. No. I don't think so.

It was the most awkward. Because he was -- do you remember this?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: It was a long time ago. Because he was so excited. And he thought she was so in love. And it was all -- and she was not having it. It was bad. It was so awkward. I felt so bad for that guy.

STU: Because there's two things going on there. One, I don't necessarily want whatever you're asking me to happen. And, two, I'm annoyed you're embarrassing me in front of the nation. Both of those things could be part of the equation here.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Not that that's happening for you, Jared. That's all good stuff.

STU: We assume there's hugging.

GLENN: Hugging, kissing.

STU: Oh, wow. This is -- what a great moment.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. This is so beautiful. That kind of stuff.

STU: Yeah. And if not, we don't want to know what happens. So we'll assume it went well.

GLENN: Call our attorneys, okay? Deal with them.

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.
