Glenn Beck: Untimely Demise


In the Event of My Untimely Demise

by Brian Sack

GLENN: Brian Sack is the author of In the Event of My Untimely Demise that's out in paperback now."

MR. SACK: Apparently my cordless phone does not have a gift.

GLENN: Yeah, you have a big fat face that

MR. SACK: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah.

MR. SACK: But on the other thing, aside from hanging up in the middle of phone interviews, you did teach me valuable things like getting the title out there, talking about what's in the book, trying to get people to read it in the event of my untimely demise.

GLENN: Sure. And it's actually a very funny book and honestly it's something that I thought about killing you and then just taking the manuscript and

MR. SACK: Stealing it.

GLENN: Republishing it under my name.

MR. SACK: Yeah, because you'd get a better deal probably.

GLENN: Well, sold Moore books.

MR. SACK: You've got what they call the platform, you've got the platform which is the way to sell the book. I don't have the platform. I've got Twitter.

GLENN: Yeah, so that's

MR. SACK: Hey, everybody, I'm on Twitter.

GLENN: Okay. So Brian Sack, you know, we're trying to say that I have a gift, and I think you hit it out of the park.

MR. SACK: Right.

GLENN: I think you said that with

STU: Yeah, but he did not say it quietly, though. That is in the quote is you are supposed to say it quietly with deep humility.

MR. SACK: I can do it again because when it comes to acting, I have a gift.

GLENN: See, that doesn't sound humble. Did that sound humble?

STU: No, it did not.

MR. SACK: Didn't sound humble, right.

STU: That was just normal humility, not deep humility.

GLENN: So Brian, in the event of my untimely demise, it's a letter to your son?

MR. SACK: Yes, in the event of my untimely demise, like if I were to get swine flu or something.

GLENN: Like what?

MR. SACK: If I were to get swine flu or SARS or any of the flus.

GLENN: Are you teaching your kids about the swine flu?

MR. SACK: I want them to know that every six to twelve months the media needs to harp on something and it's usually a virus and that, you know, he needs to know to get all freaked out and then eventually it will go away and something weird will happen and there will be a new story like, you know, one of the Jonas Brothers will fall down and scrape his knee.

GLENN: You think that's what's going to replace the swine flu?

MR. SACK: Yes.

GLENN: Yeah.

MR. SACK: I'm putting my money on that.

GLENN: Let's say your kid has a cough or something like that but he also has a birthday party that he really wants to go to.

MR. SACK: Right.

GLENN: Do you send him or

MR. SACK: Well, what you do if he's coughing and you want to send him to the party and kind of disguise the flu? Is that what you're saying?

GLENN: I'm just sayin', yeah, might be a good idea.

MR. SACK: If he's coughing heavily, you can claim that he just auditioned for my littlest American Idol and that he's just kind of hoarse. If he seems sweaty, whatever you just claim, that he just ran a children's marathon.

GLENN: A children's marathon?

MR. SACK: Right. And if he's very sleepy, you say you were up all night partying with your kid.

GLENN: I don't think these are really good, I don't think these are are you at all concerned about your untimely demise with the swine flu there?

GLENN: I guess I should say yes, that everyone should rush out and get the book, in the event of my untimely demise because you never know what can happen by a virus that's, you know, in the papers. I mean, it's deadly. I mean, 20 days, this stuff spreads fast.

GLENN: Are you saying that the New York Times I'm just reading between lines.

MR. SACK: Right.

GLENN: The New York Times was how many? What was it, a billion seven that they are in the hole or something like that, Stu? And they've just gone to this big, you know, this big Mexican finance guy.

MR. SACK: Right.

GLENN: And bail out the paper there in Mexico. Are you saying, if I'm reading you right, that you believe this is a New York Times scam to sell more papers?

MR. SACK: I believe in this day and age you kind of need a little extra oomph and if it involves scaring the heck out of everybody oh, my gosh, I just coughed. That's weird. Didn't feel that coming on.

GLENN: I need some Purell. Do we have any? Okay, I'm a little freaked out now. You're coughing.

MR. SACK: Did you see I Am Legend? This whole thing, it smacks of I Am Legend really.

GLENN: You should stay in your house. Do you have plastic sheeting that could

MR. SACK: Pardon me?

GLENN: I was wondering if you had plastic sheeting that could cover the windows.

MR. SACK: I was going to put plastic tape over the windows and black out things and I was going to order in the event of my untimely demise off of Amazon. I didn't want to go to a bookstore, brick and mortar places. I think I'm should I be panicked? Yes, I'm terrified.

GLENN: Okay, good.

MR. SACK: I'm walking around oh, the book's on Facebook, too. Twitter, don't forget Twitter.

STU: Glenn, in these tough economic times and we're always looking for an investment opportunity.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You just heard Brian Sack cough. Means he probably has swine flu. So in the event of his untimely demise, in the event of my untimely demise would be worth a lot more. So if you purchase it before his untimely demise.

MR. SACK: Right.

GLENN: No, it's not going to be worth a dime more. He dies from swine flu, nobody's going to pay a dollar more.

MR. SACK: You don't think so?

GLENN: Not a dollar more, even if it's signed. It may even drop in value if it's signed.

MR. SACK: You know what's weird to me? The paper edition has more material, it's got an extra chapter. You buy the hard cover and then they have

GLENN: It has an extra chapter? What is the extra chapter? I didn't die, son, I I'm still alive?

MR. SACK: This is about every generation's hardships. I talk about the greatest generation, Tom Brokaw's greatest generation and our claim to fame is we had 300 baud modems that were really slow and, you know, if we're going shopping, nobody really knew where you were, they couldn't call you on a mobile phone because nobody had them because they were the size of a gym bag.

GLENN: Brian Sack, very, very funny writer, very funny writer, a great book, in the event of my untimely demise, it's out on paperback now. Brian Sack, we'll see you.

MR. SACK: You should see my Twitter story.

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.
