Quick, hide the cutlery!

Want to know how to blow a progressive’s mind? It’s actually pretty easy. Progressive arguments always break down the further you let the idea play out. Once you give an example of endgame, it’s all over.

Case in point: gender.

The champions of social justice want you to believe that gender is fluid. Once the chains of gender science were lifted, the movement went, well... off the chain. By February 2014 there were 58 listed genders.

Four months later, there were 71. Today, there are over 112 listed genders. Mysteriously missing from the list are male and female. Wanna know why? Because they know, as all school children know, that --- in reality --- there are only two genders, but you can’t be reminded of that. You have to FIGHT ON FOR THE CAUSE!

Here’s another example. Leave it to the land that founded the Fabian Society to unwittingly make the conservative case for guns without actually even meaning to. The UK has already banned guns, but now they’re starting a new initiative: comprehensive knife control.

This may come as a shock to progressives all over the world --- bad guys and criminals occasionally try and hurt people.

London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, has a problem. Apparently --- and this may come as a shock to progressives all over the world --- bad guys and criminals occasionally try and hurt people. I know, I know, this is a shocker, but it comes from years of intense research.

Our cousins across the pond thought they had figured it all out when they banned guns back in the 90s. THEY DID IT! It was as if Neville Chamberlain was speaking from the grave. PEACE IN OUR TIME!

Well, maybe pump those brakes just a little bit. Crime in the UK has spiraled out of control. There are no guns in the country, and yet the murder rate in London has now overtaken that of New York City. How can that be!? People were still hurting and killing each other, but they just moved on to doing it with knives.

Apparently, the tools criminals use don't really matter to them, as long as they get the job done. You can practically hear the phone call from the Fabian Society library to the London Mayor’s office.

Ring ring ring...

Spooky Fabian guy: QUICK! JUST START BANNING THINGS!

London Mayor: Can I ban lawlessness? Nope, that’ll never work. Maybe I can ban evil? Nah. We’d all be banned along with everyone else. Oh, I've got it... Let’s ban cutlery!

So that’s what they did. Operation Sceptre kicked off all over the UK, stopping random citizens and searching them for any tools of death. The primary boogeyman here was knives, and the mere fact that the UK has gone from banning guns to kitchen cutlery is actually enough for us to laugh and prove our point, but the crackdown on inanimate objects didn’t stop there.

Congratulations UK. You won’t stop a single crime with this.

They’re also confiscating --- and this isn’t a joke --- scissors, pliers, screwdrivers, hammers... anything AT ALL that might be used as a weapon. What’s next? A ban on hands and feet?

Congratulations UK. You won’t stop a single crime with this. The only thing you’ll impede is waves of bloodthirsty civilians looking to assemble their IKEA furniture. Eating a steak might be a little more difficult as well. Banning the tools of criminals and evil men, won’t do a thing to stop crime.

So, a BIG shout out and thank you to the London mayor for opening Pandora's box and making the case for the Second Amendment. I can’t wait to watch the BBC town hall arguing the evils of the NRA --- that is The National Ratchet Association --- and how they need to have a serious conversation about comprehensive ratchet and socket control.

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?

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.
