GLENN: I mean, huge, massive corner. People just bowing down as this

gentleman walks through the hallway. "Could I get you something, sir? Do you

need anything? Do you need anything, sir? What can I do for you today, sir? You

are a god, sir." That's what is said to him, whispered in the hallways as this

man walks down the hallway. And yet he can't find his way down about a block to

these studios. He has somebody, an assistant most likely, an assistant to the

assistant dial the phone number so he can come on and speak. Ladies and

gentlemen, the one and only, the man, the man who has actually made two women on

The View walk off. He's a god among men.

O'REILLY: (Laughing).

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly. Hello, Bill.

O'REILLY: Finally got the intro right, through all this time.

GLENN: All right. So really people were high fiving you on The View?

O'REILLY: It's unbelievable. Not on The View.

GLENN: I mean, not on The View, yeah.

O'REILLY: I mean, I keep a low profile of my private life as you know, and I'm

walking around and going to my usual deli and this, that and the other thing.

And everywhere I go people are yelling out the windows, the cars and

GLENN: They really, they really think because I think that the audience was with

you.

O'REILLY: The audience

GLENN: In The View.

O'REILLY: in The View was with me.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: Which was amazing. But outside I mean, my God.

GLENN: I know. But here they are in The View on The View, and the audience at

The View I believe was with Bill and they really, they just don't get it, do

they? They really don't get it?

O'REILLY: No, it's very you know, I knew when I went over there I'm writing a

newspaper column about them this week. You know, when I walked in and I've done

this show, I don't know, ten times before? I've been on there a lot over the

years because I'm friends with Barbara Walters. But I ran into Goldberg in the

GLENN: Me, too. Me, too.

O'REILLY: hallway. I get this dirty look from her, this strange kind of look.

And I went, uh oh. And I think that the genesis of this whole thing didn't

really have to do with the Muslim situation. It has to do with President Obama.

And they, Behar and Goldberg, are such zealots for the president. I mean, they

just love him. And they attribute his decline in popularity to guys like you and

me. Now, of course

PAT: I have nothing to do with it.

O'REILLY: Right but, you know, attributing to you would have some validity. But

me, I've been pretty benign about Obama although, you know, my new book,

Pinheads and Patriots, if you read the book, it really takes the Obama

administration apart for basically not being efficient and for making bad

decisions.

GLENN: Let's not let's not encourage people that have Marxist or nonfreedom

loving tendencies to become more efficient.

O'REILLY: No, but I stay out of that. I deal with the socialism business and I

actually mention your name a couple of times in Pinheads and Patriots, but I

largely stay out of that debate. Because it's been there, it's been declared.

People can make up their own mind. But what I get into very heavily in Pinheads

and Patriots

Glenn Beck is seen here on GlennBeck.TV, a feature available exclusively

to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members.

GLENN: Say the name of the book one more time.

O'REILLY: Here's what they did. Here's what the Obama administration did and

here's how it's affecting you.

GLENN: And you can find that in, what's the name of the book?

O'REILLY: (Laughing). Don't be a pinhead, Beck. Don't be a pinhead.

GLENN: I'm a patriot. You're the pinhead.

O'REILLY: So I took and said, look, he spent $800 billion in stimulus money,

okay, and here's how it's affected you. Your job security is worse now than it

was before they spent it. That's true. So when I went on The View, that was the

undercurrent of it all, that they here's this big bad O'Reilly walking onto the

show and he's damaging our guy, President Obama. I'm almost positive that was

the underlie. Because when we started to talk about the book, I'm not going to

mention the name of it again.

GLENN: Pinheads and Patriots.

O'REILLY: But we started to talk about it, okay? I said the president has

distanced himself from the folks, and here's a good example, the 9/11 mosque

deal. That's how it came up. And then when I said Muslims killed us on 9/11, I

was surprised. I mean, I don't think that's an explosive statement. I just

don't.

GLENN: Well, I think it's a not coming not in a conversation. You have been on

the record forever. We all have. We know that all Muslims are not killers and

O'REILLY: Right. How many times over ten years do we have to do this?

GLENN: Yeah, we get it. So in conversation it can come out that way and so it's

not. You correct it. You say, all Muslims? Bill O'Reilly, all Muslims? Of

course, not all Muslims and then you go on.

O'REILLY: And who would think that other than zealots? Nobody.

GLENN: Nobody.

O'REILLY: So they use that, they use that to make this display which blew up

right in their it just blew up right in their faces.

GLENN: Oh, can I tell you something? When Joy Behar stood up, she was clearly

grandstanding. And then Whoopi is just pathetic. And they both walk off. And you

know when they really lost? They lost well, first of all, Barbara Walters being

reasonable saying, well, that they are just doing the wrong thing. And then they

lost when they walked back on the set. When they walked back on the set and they

were like, "He apologized." Like, oh, shush, he did not.

O'REILLY: Right, right. But it ignited something in the country, and this is the

power of the Internet, by the way. I mean, we had a huge audience watching it on

our show

GLENN: Why would you say?

O'REILLY: And the View gets a couple of million people watch them, too.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: But the Internet just picked it up and ran, wow. But it ignited in the

country this backlash against political correctness and people are just that's

why I was getting high fived and that's why I was, you know, all my sandwiches

and sodas were bought for me because they just said enough. We have had enough

with these people like Behar and Goldberg who just seize upon anything to call

you a bigot, to, you know, brand you. And it is un American, it is unfair, it is

not charitable. Whatever, people have had I. They have had it. And I will gladly

lead this anti PC movement. I'm anointing myself as the leader.

GLENN: I don't think that you do that in a constitutional republic.

O'REILLY: You don't what?

GLENN: I don't think that you just make yourself king.

O'REILLY: I'm not king. I'm just leading the anti PC movement, you know?

GLENN: Okay, here's the thing. Oh, jeez, are you going to have tea parties and

little groups that meet all over? Because I hate the people who do that. Anyway,

Bill, you should watch the show in two nights because unbeknownst to me but I

think you're right about what that whole thing was on there, that it's anti PC.

I'm doing a special here in a couple of nights on the roots of political

correctness and it will blow your mind. It will blow your mind.

O'REILLY: Good. Well, then you can be the co leader of the anti PC movement.

We'll be co leaders.

GLENN: I don't

O'REILLY: Now, did you tell the folks about the big event coming up the night

before Halloween out in Connecticut? Did you tell them?

GLENN: Oh, yeah, we're doing the Pinhead and Patriot tour.

O'REILLY: I think it's the Bold Fresh Tour. You don't want to confuse it.

GLENN: How many books do you have to write? Jeez, man.

O'REILLY: You've got more books than I have. I'm trying to contribute to

society, not just, you know, write them.

GLENN: (Laughing).

O'REILLY: Anyway, Beck and I are going to be at Mohegan Sun, the big Indian

casino in Connecticut and we want everybody to mobilize and come up there to

come see us because it's a great show. The BoldFreshTour.com has for details.

GLENN: And it's on Halloween eve.

O'REILLY: You don't have to come in costume.

GLENN: But you are, right? You are coming as a hate mongering bigot?

O'REILLY: I've got the Joy Behar wig.

GLENN: What? I was right then, a hate mongering bigot. Anyway, Bill, one last

thing. Would you do me a favor? Go to TheBlaze.com today.

O'REILLY: I read the article already on this pinhead.

GLENN: Did you see the video?

O'REILLY: I didn't see the video.

GLENN: Oh, go read go watch the video. It's on The Blaze. And look at this guy.

Have you ever heard of him? Because this

O'REILLY: No, I never heard ever him.

GLENN: This is your kind of guy you are the guy who took down Sami Al Arian.

O'REILLY: And ward Churchill.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: Yeah, this is another nut.

GLENN: This guy's amazing. What he was just saying recently, they have him on

videotape.

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: He's a guy who is a professor at Lincoln college in Pennsylvania. Just a

few days ago he was out and they have him on videotape and he's saying, we have

to take Israel apart. If we can do it peacefully, you know, if that's even

possible, great. Otherwise, rise up. And I mean, he's a dangerous guy.

O'REILLY: Yeah, I'm going to probably use a little bit of that on The Factor

tonight. You going to do something on it tonight?

GLENN: No, I don't have time to.

O'REILLY: You got too many mourn things to do?

GLENN: I've got so many important things to do.

O'REILLY: I don't know how you get through the day, Beck. The world, the weight

of the world on your shoulders like that?

GLENN: I'm going to be I know. I've got to talk about a little more Woodrow

Wilson tonight.

O'REILLY: Woody's coming back again?

GLENN: Woody. We have the Woody block, we have the Woody moment. All right,

Bill. Oh, wait, wait, wait, one more thing.

O'REILLY: Yeah.

GLENN: Did you see the Nancy Pelosi video?

O'REILLY: It's my talking points memo. Great minds think alike.

GLENN: Could you please address in your talking points memo tonight how wrong

you are about they are Mott Marxist socialists?

O'REILLY: I'm not listen. I'm not

GLENN: No, seriously what part of that sounds like the free market system?

O'REILLY: Why are you, why are you saying I'm wrong? I just don't care about

what their overall philosophy is. It doesn't matter to me. What matters is what

they do. So now you have the Speaker of the House saying, well, you know what?

He have to correct the unfairness here. And, of course, that means government

intervention in the private sector. So okay, now we have this one saying this

and then we're going to lay it on out there.

GLENN: This is the reason, this is the reason why you've been number one for

4,000 years.

O'REILLY: Yeah. You're more philosophical, see? I'm more methodical.

GLENN: No, you are just, you are hiding in the bushes. That's what.

O'REILLY: I'm not hiding anywhere, Beck. Are you kidding me, man?

GLENN: You are hiding in the bushes. You are just, you're camouflage. They never

see you coming. They never see you coming.

O'REILLY: The View ladies saw me coming and they fled in terror.

GLENN: All right, Bill, Good talking to you.

O'REILLY: As always.

GLENN: Pinheads and Patriots in stores everywhere now and we'll see you, when is

it? Let's see.

PAT: Halloween eve.

GLENN: Halloween eve Saturday, October 30th at the Mohegan Sunday. December 3rd

there is New Orleans, lakefront arena we're going to be there. Man, I don't

think I've ever been to New Orleans for a stage show before, have I? That will

be fun. And then a just added a matinee on Saturday, December 4th at the Music

Hall at Fairpark in Dallas. 8:00 p.m. show in Dallas has already sold out.

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.

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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
