GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Last night on the TV show, I don't even know what the hell we were even talking about. Oh, I was talking about the Ron Paul revolution and, you know, with this Guy Fox day that, you know, remember November the 5th, which is all over Ron Paul stuff, not by him but by his supporters, right, Stu? He has not pushed --

STU: Yeah, November 5th day, no, he has not.

GLENN: But his supporters have. And I believe Ron Paul's, you know, slogan, Ron Paul revolution is not meant -- you know, is not meant literally. However, I think some of his supporters may, and we were talking about it last night, about the seeds of discontent, and some of the real signs of danger from the left and the right, you have the extreme right -- well, no, it's not a left and right thing. It's really socialism or communism, totalarianism and anarchy. You've got those two extremes. You've got the ones that want to put us in the Soviet Union all the way to those who are just anarchists and those are the fringes that I am most afraid of here in America. Those are the enemies within, some of them, and they're targeting legitimate concerns.


Radical Son


by David Horowitz

For instance, the Ron Paul revolution, the reason why a lot of people are saying no government is better than this government is because they're giving our freedom away. It's bad stuff. Our sovereignty is going away. And a lot of people are up on it. They don't know what to do. Some say, well, it's just time to take our government back. And I was talking to David Horowitz about that and I started the conversation with, you know, David, I know that you were a Marxist back in the Sixties, and he came out and he said, well, yeah, but I mean, you know, you've got to understand. I was raised by Marxists who had Soviet influence on, you know, my parents and everything else. We were in the middle of another conversation. So I couldn't stop and say, whoa, whoa, whoa, what? So I invited him on the program today. Welcome, Mr. Horowitz. How are you, sir?

HOROWITZ: Thank you, Glenn. It's funny how even at this late date, it's hard for any of us to say as parents we're card-carrying members of the American communist party. There was a communist party in this country. My parents were members. All of our friends were in the party.

GLENN: Actual card-carrying communists.

HOROWITZ: Actual card-carrying. Of course, they never used the word communist. They referred to themselves as...

GLENN: Progressives.

HOROWITZ: Progressives, exactly. So hang on just a second. Your parents, when you were growing up, they actually advocated the destruction of the United States?

HOROWITZ: They wanted Soviet America. They wanted to lose the Cold War and they had views which are very, you know, similar to the left today. When I was a kid, I used to be taken by my parents to Ninth Avenue or Seventh Avenue where there was a theater called the Stanley Theater and we used to go see Soviet films about Stalin.

GLENN: You must have been mighty popular. When did you --

HOROWITZ: Actually it's really interesting. I was a classic Yankee fan. If you were on the left, you could not be a Yankee fan. It was my first deviation.

GLENN: That's so funny.

HOROWITZ: The Yankees were kind of the ruling class of baseball. You had to be a Dodger fan because, of course, they had brought in Jackie Robinson in 1947 and which I was 8 at the time. That's kind of where I --

GLENN: So when you were a teenager, it was during the McCarthy era.

HOROWITZ: Right.

GLENN: How did you experience the McCarthy era, as a teenager whose parents were card-carrying communists?

HOROWITZ: Well, it was kind of in a hard time for me. My father was one of the -- was a teacher who lost his job. New York had a law which said they couldn't be a member of the communist party and teach, and they knew he was a communist because -- but, you know, he wouldn't answer the question. So they fired him. And his name appeared in the New York Times and I got some hate mail, which is not that easy to, you know, handle when you're 14 years old, you get it from people that you know as schoolmates.

GLENN: Right.

HOROWITZ: But, you know, I have to say that my life, for example, at Columbia University where I was a student in the Fifties was a lot better than that of conservative students on American campuses who were constantly harassed in the classroom by their teachers. My teachers never singled me out even though I wrote Marxist papers and they knew very well what my politics were. I went through the whole story, Glenn, in the book "Radical Son" which is not only a history, it's not only my personal biography and honestly including, you know, my personal life because when I finally left the left, my whole world collapsed and I went through a series of divorces. So I integrated the personal and the political in the book. (Inaudible). Understand the mentality of American Progressives. My book "Radical Son" is as good a place to start as any.

GLENN: I've got to read it. I'm sorry to say, David, I haven't. I'm kind of new to this whole, you know, caring kind of thing. September 11th changed me. I was just a screw-off. When it came to global politics and everything else, I always thought, you know -- I thought McCarthy was wrong, and I'm still not sure that he was necessarily, you know -- I'm not saying that he was a good guy, but the jury is now out for the first time on that, and I really never questioned why the Soviet Union could collapse and there wasn't a revolution, there weren't people, as they were pulling down the statues of Stalin, why there weren't people shooting at the people that were tearing down the statues until recently and I thought, you know, if your system ever collapsed and we became communist, if they pulled down the statue of Abe Lincoln or Thomas Jefferson, I know I would be on the front lines trying to shoot those people.

HOROWITZ: Well, the thing about -- let me just say that the fact that you came after 9/11 and had this whole other background makes you a very refreshing voice, and I'm sure that's part of your, a big part of your popularity. People like me who are so, you know, historically rooted can often sound like broken records.

GLENN: Yeah.

HOROWITZ: So I really appreciate what you do to win people up.

GLENN: David, explain this to me because where I was going is the Soviet Union collapsed. Those guys just went underground. They became social Democrats. They didn't stop being communist and I don't --

HOROWITZ: And in America you have to understand that the left that you see out there, which is opposing the Iraq war and, you know, getting upset about prisoners in Guantanamo is the same left that supported the Soviet Union. The Cold War, wanted us to lose the Cold War. They didn't go away. When communism collapsed, and it collapsed because with the crackpot economist that just got it wrong, it was a bankrupted system. But when it collapsed, their attitude was, oh, good, now we don't have to defend this anymore. We'll just go on attacking capitalism, American democracy as the great Satan and continue on our way. And that's really what's happened. These people never looked back. You know, you would think that people who went through the Vietnam War, I was a -- you know, I was one of the leaders of the antiwar left and the largest magazine of the left, Ramparts. And then when the war ended, when America left and the communists proceeded to slaughter 2 1/2 million people in Cambodia and Vietnam, I had second thoughts. I said, you know, Nixon was right: There was going to be a bloodbath if the communists won, and we were wrong and we helped make this bloodbath possible.

GLENN: Yeah.

HOROWITZ: But if you listen to John Kerry or Ted Kennedy or Howard Dean or the Clintons, all of whom were part of that movement, they have no regrets. They don't take any responsibility for the disaster that's to retreat. And then we're proposing that we do it again in Iraq.

GLENN: You know, David, I have to tell you I appreciate anybody who tries to be intellectually honest and will say, boy, I made a huge mistake because we all make mistakes but people pretend that they never did and they never go back, you are exactly right. They always go forward. So I appreciate it. As a guy who -- as a guy I should be pissed at because, you know, I think we treated our Vietnam veterans in shameful despicable ways, and you were part of that. I actually have admiration for you that you can come around and say, whoa, was I wrong, God bless America for being a place where you can admit that you're wrong and get a second bite at the apple.

Let me go back to when McCarthy made communism into a joke or it was allowed to become a joke, nobody -- we don't even call China Red China anymore. Communism isn't anything to be feared. In fact, there's a lot of people -- in fact, I just read something in the Yale paper today that communism or socialism will cure what ails America today.

HOROWITZ: Exactly.

GLENN: What happened, tell me what happened to the Democratic party and wake some of the Democrat -- because I really, truly believe most Democrats are good Americans, love their country just like me. But they have been duped and hijacked by socialists, by communists and been taken over and nobody will pay attention because it's a communist has become a joke. Am I wrong?

HOROWITZ: Not. I mean, you get called a McCarthy-ite. If you point out that there are actually people who have these views. What happened at the Democratic party happened in 1972, and I actually was appalled. I never considered myself a Democrat. I was a radical. And then I saw Tom Hayden and Jane Fonda. Tom Hayden had just three years earlier, McGovern for the younger people ran in 1972. In 1969 to 1970, Tom Hayden was advocating military uprisings, guerilla warfare in American cities conducted by American radicals and saying that the country was going fascist and that we would be in jail within a year. I mean, I knew Hayden and that's what he was saying. In 1972 he and Fonda organized caucuses among Democrats with the help of Democratic congressmen like (inaudible). To get America to cut off aid to the South Vietnamese and the Cambodians. And the left, part of the Democratic party and part of the McGovern apparatus, the party was formed that created these caucuses. So for the legislative party and the political apparatus, came under the control of the left, the same left that had been in the streets in the Sixties calling for revolution and, you know, it's called -- it's called a boring from within. Which is to transform the system by becoming part of it and using its own instrumentalities and institutions to overthrow it.

GLENN: You know, I'm reading -- have you ever read any Skousen? Have you read -- do you remember "The Naked Communist"?

HOROWITZ: Yeah.

GLENN: I went back and reread that, it was printed in the 1950s. I reread that recently. You look at all the things the communists wanted to accomplish, it's all been done. It's all been done.

HOROWITZ: Here's the way I measure what's happened to the Democratic party and the country. John F. Kennedy was a Reagan Democrat.

GLENN: Yeah.

HOROWITZ: He was a militant anticommunist. He was a hawk on the fence. He had the largest military buildup in peace time history in his three years in office. He was for a balanced budget and a capital gains tax cut, and the cabinet was composed of, you know, Republicans. Defense, treasury and Secretary of State. If John Kennedy were alive today, he would be called a right wing conservative.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

HOROWITZ: That's how far the Democratic party has moved to the left. Yet when I read the "New York Times," for example, on Sunday, had two books on the McGovern campaign. And of the reviewers, one of whom is a Provost at Columbia said, well, the Republican party has gone far to the right but not -- the Democratic party is just a moderate party.

GLENN: I've got to tell you, I think that the Republicans have become the Democrats. They are the --

HOROWITZ: They shifted to the left dramatically.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, they're still for big government. I mean, David, it almost looks like it is an intentional breaking of our spine economically by what -- I mean, here we are. We're facing anywhere between 50 and $100 trillion in debt, about four or five years away that's going to come due and yet they are talking about dogpiling even more debt on. It doesn't make any sense.

HOROWITZ: You know, the problem is twofold. One, that in our system it's called buying votes. That's what government spending is about.

GLENN: Right.

HOROWITZ: Democrats do it as a religion. Republicans have adopted it as a tactic but then also they -- the worst thing I can say about Bush's presidency and, you know, I'm with you on borders and all these things.

GLENN: Yeah.

HOROWITZ: Is that he hasn't fought the war as home. He doesn't ask for sacrifices. When you fight a war, it's expensive. You've got to go and you've got to cut stuff. Why didn't they go and slash some domestic programs for the poor. Why wasn't Bush on television every week in a press conference exploiting new -- while we're at war, they failed to bring the American people along with them. And that is absolutely the source of our problem.

GLENN: That's right. Because you feel like, I feel in a way like we've been lied to, that we don't even feel like we're in war. He should have been saying this is the fight of our life. This is the fight of our life. When I say that on the air, when I say, guys, this is World War III, it's just 1939, you just don't know yet, people always say, well, why isn't the President saying stuff like that? Why don't I hear that from anybody else? It is the lie. It's not about weapons of mass destruction. That's the lie.

HOROWITZ: Exactly. The whole Democratic case actually was built on lies.

GLENN: Yeah.

HOROWITZ: You know, the President's too polite or, you know, I don't know what's wrong with him that he doesn't point this out.

GLENN: Got my theorys.

HOROWITZ: Every Democrat who voted for the war, the majority of them in the Senate knew, had all the intelligence that Bush had. They had the national intelligence estimate. They voted for the war based on our intelligence...

GLENN: David, I've got to run. I'm up against a network break but I'd love to have you on again, sir. Fascinating history. Thank you very much.

HOROWITZ: All right.

GLENN: David Horowitz.

END TRANSCRIPT

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

Watch how the conversation went on radio HERE:

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know youtu.be


Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."

Nancy Pelosi and her growing ensemble of radical leftists are making sure that 2021 will be just as terrible as 2020 — terrible, and forcefully gender-neutral. The 117th Congress convened on Sunday, and on Monday, they shifted the goalposts by approving a 45-pages rules package, "H. Res 7," in a 217 to 206 vote. The Rules Package is the brainchild of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA).

Yesterday, in a speech to the House, Republican Rep. Tom Cole described the proposals as "some of the harshest and most cynical that I've experienced during my time in Congress." Congressman Steve Scalise accurately called it a "Soviet-Style rules package. ... designed to take away the voice of 48% of this chamber."

Some of the many wild rule changes include a continuation of proxy voting during the coronavirus pandemic, a ban on lawmakers convicted of certain crimes from visiting the House floor, and of course what would Democrats be without their hatred for Donald Trump? With the rule changes, they've found a way to attack Trump even after he's left office. They've added provisions that allow them to send subpoenas to former Presidents, former VPs, and former White House staff long after their administration has left the White House.

They've added provisions that allow them to send subpoenas to former Presidents, former VPs, and former White House...

Pelosi called the plan a "visionary rules package" which "reflects the values of her diverse Democratic majority," framing the proposal as a departure from ignorance, with that elitist under-handed way of condescending to non-woke Americans. She called them "future-focused proposals," as if conservatives and Republicans aren't worried about the future. Democrats honestly believe this. Believe that we pray to God for the destruction of the future, whatever it means. Although, Democrats are certainly not the authority on prayer: They can't even say one without jamming it full of woke inanity. And "inanity" is the word for it. Because the Democrats have devolved into utter nonsense.

In the news cycle, stories get buried. It feels like we're all constantly putting out fires. Politicians love this: Just about every controversy vanishes quickly. Shady legislation goes unnoticed. The mainstream media isn't going to report on this, not with any semblance of honesty or critical thought. As always, they're more interested in attacking Donald Trump. So it's up to us to ask, "Wait a minute, you're doing what now?"

You may be thinking, "How do the rules for the House of Representatives affect me?" Because you can tell a lot about a person by the way they run their house, or in this case their workplace. If this is how they want to conduct their workplace, I'm terrified to see how they'll run the country. Because, even though it will require ethical breaches and severe overreach, that's exactly what they're about to do, including a rule that keeps the House Minority from amending legislation on the floor.

In true leftist fashion, Democrats have projected their own injustices on Republicans. Like how the bill refers to the new rules as "sweeping ethics reforms," the implication being that there were ethical violations that demanded reforming.

Yesterday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said it best, delivered a scathing rebuke of House Democrats. I recommend watching the whole thing. In particular, he took umbrage with the way the rules violate our freedom of speech, the most important right that we have as Americans.

He's right: This hatred for free speech began in academia. Specifically, from the Marxist radicals who promote and adhere to Critical Theory. We conservatives have spent so much time on Critical Race Theory, but we're missing the bigger picture. Critical Race Theory is just a wart on the looming monster known as Critical Theory. If you think the riots were bad, if you thought sports had become overrun by woke politics, if you thought colleges were bad already — you better get ready for the ideological tidal wave, because it's so about to be much worse. The whole thing is Critical Theory gone wild. I'll tell you why in a moment. First, let's look through the details.

Gender

The resolution aims to "make this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history," and opens by formally establishing the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. An entire department within the lower house of Congress devoted to bringing Critical Theory to life."Inclusion and diversity," two concepts entrenched in Critical Theory inanity. The left would call them "dog whistles," seemingly innocuous words that signal something evil. Apparently, inclusion and diversity are the reason House Democrats felt the need to change the name of the Office of the Whistleblower Ombudsman, "to the gender-neutral Office of the Whistleblower Ombuds."

Then they really lose it in subsection e: "Gender-Inclusive Language." This section "modernizes the use of pronouns, familial relationship terminology, and other references to gender in order to be inclusive of all members, delegates, resident commissioners, employees of the House, and their families."

In other words, the standing rules will now be gender-inclusive. ''Seamen'' will now be ''seafarers." ''Chairman'' is ''Chair." And one clause of House rules removed the terms father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother" — you get the idea.

The new rules also require "standing committees to include in their oversight plans a discussion of how committee work over the forthcoming Congress will address issues of inequities on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, or national origin; honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender-neutral."

Free Speech

One of the most egregious parts of the rules changes is the way they'll compromise free speech. Democrats want to protect free speech only if it's something they agree with. They've taken this to villainous extremes.

Deep Fake Media

●The Democrat rules package also made it an ethics violation for members to knowingly distribute "deep fake" media.

●The wording is vague, and could easily encompass conservative media. What do they mean by fake media? Memes? Articles? Jokes? Op-eds? "regulations addressing the dissemination by electronic means of any image, video, or audio file that has been distorted or manipulated with the intent to mislead the public.

●It applies not only to Representatives' official accounts but also to their personal accounts, a clear violation of free speech. "They would penalize any member who shares news or views that liberals and their allies in the media deem 'fake.' They actually make it an ethics violation, which is usually reserved for such unbecoming conduct as bribery and corruption."

Pay As You Go (PayGo) Exemptions

●The new rules also weaken PayGo, a budgetary-control measure that limits "Tax and Spend" policies and requires Congress to offset spending on bills that would increase the deficit.

●They are the payment rules on legislation related to the virus and climate change that previously required lawmakers to identify new revenue sources or spending cuts to fund their priorities.

●Democrats will now be able to force through any legislation regardless of the cost, and for legislation like the Green New Deal. Yet AOC actually had a problem with this caveat, but of course, her reason for opposing it is as asinine as you'd expect.

The Motion to Recommit (MTR)

Congress is a majoritarian institution. They govern themselves, as long as it doesn't violate the Constitution. Since Democrats regained the majority two years ago, they have treaded that line and I would say that they've been downright unconstitutional. For those entire two years, they boasted that in 2020 they'd sweep Congress, all of it, but especially The House of Representatives. They were wrong, and now they have the slimmest majority in years. And I'm positive that their hubris is largely responsible.

They were wrong, and now they have the slimmest majority in years.

Since the creation of the modern party system shortly before the Civil War, there have been 18 House majority changes, with Democrats in power the most.

●The motion to recommit provides one final opportunity for the House to debate and amend a measure, typically after the engrossment and third reading of the bill, before the Speaker orders the vote on final passage. ... The motion does not delay or kill the bill. MTR gives the Minority, and by extension their constituents, a voice by denying them the chance to debate a bill on the floor.

●It's been around since the House was founded, and in its present form since 1909. In 1919, Rep. Abraham Garrett said that "The Motion to Recommit is regarded as so sacred, it's one of the few rules protected against the Committee on Rules by the General Rules of the House."

●When Pelosi was in the Minority, she described the MTR as grounded in the Free Speech guaranteed by our constitution. Anytime the Republicans had the majority, they never even considered cutting off MTR.

Democrats shifted the goalposts by redefining words, by degrading the current meanings, and by trying to convince us that we are fundamentally immoral. It's textbook Critical Theory: attack our sense of reality, our understanding of knowledge, our guiding beliefs, and, now, our most fundamental rights.

We've entered the era of Critical Theory. Wokeness is the new law.

Literally.

The time for metaphors is over; the House of Representatives just instituted wokeness into policy. They're still not saying the quiet part aloud. Critical Theory allows for this. Saddle up to the new normal. The new authoritarianism. Just like how nobody took 20 seconds to hop on Wikipedia and check the etymology of "amen", none of the Democrats have really thought out their plan.

Article I, Section 8 of The Constitution delineates the powers granted to the Congress, one of which is "to provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrections and repel Invasions."

Well, lately, America has been overrun by insurrections and invasions and Congress can't do much about it because they're in on the insurrection. Significant factions within the legislative branch have encouraged these insurrections, they have validated the invasive radicals who threaten to destroy our country. And they've done it under the auspices of furtherance. Of being progressive. Of not being racist, or transphobic, or whatever insult is trendy on woke Twitter.

The time for metaphors is over; the House of Representatives just instituted wokeness into policy.

They're saying, "surrender some of your rights, some of your luxuries, some of your privileges — you have so many, you don't deserve them — and you'll make the world a smidge better." It's the kind of ideology that shreds through people like they're nothing and it is swallowing America whole. Once they change the rules and they change the words, you're living a real-life version of Orwell's 1984. What we need in a moment like this are strong people willing to face the wrath of a Leftist establishment that is all too happy to watch the world burn.

McCarthy talked about how people were feeling this indignation. Well, Kevin, I want you to know, it's not just you. I feel it. I think more than 70 million Americans feel it.

It's not going away any time soon.

And today, I ask that you just prepare mentally, for a rough road ahead. But one that we win in, in the end. And I can say it with confidence because I know the truth, will always set people free.

The truth will always prevail.
