GLENN: Mr. Bill O'Reilly is going to be with me on, what, tomorrow I'm going to be with Bill in Louisiana, in New Orleans. And then Saturday, two shows in Dallas. And Bill is on the phone with us now, hi, Bill.

O'REILLY: I made a huge mistake. I was watching the Bold Fresh Tour DVD last night.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

O'REILLY: Best stocking stuffer in the world, okay? And I was amazed at how good you were on the DVD and how bad I was! And then I said who edited this? Do you want to answer that?

GLENN: I have no idea what you're even talking about, Bill, but I'm glad that we now have you on tape that you were bad and I was great. It's made this whole DVD

O'REILLY: Who edited the tape? Jeez. How foolish was I?

GLENN: It made this whole DVD Bold Fresh Tour thing worth it now, hasn't it, for me.

O'REILLY: You know, since we give so much money to charity it is, you know, if people buy it on Bill O'Reilly.com, I know you've got it on your website, what is that, GlennBeck.com or I'minsane.com? Which website is that?

GLENN: Really? You want to go there? You really want to go there, Bill? Who's looking let me play this for you. You know, you have said to me about the FCC, the FCC, you don't have to worry about anything. Net neutrality the FCC is going to do December 31st. I want to play Michael Copps, the head of the FCC or one of the commissioners of the FCC. He's being interviewed on the BBC. Listen to what he says about the state of American journalism. Listen to this.

REPORTER: Commissioner, you describe American journalism as in what you call its hour of grave peril. That's a pretty serious condemnation.

COPPS: It's a pretty serious situation that we're in. I think American media has a bad case of substance abuse right now. We are not producing the body of news and information that democracy needs to conduct its civic dialogue.

PAT: Wow.

COPPS: We're not producing as much news as we did five years, ten years, fifteen years ago, and we have to we have to reverse that trend or I think we are going to be pretty close to denying our citizens the essential news and information that they need to have in order to make intelligent decisions about the future direction.

GLENN: Now, I don't hear anybody on the left complaining that a good portion of people get their news from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.



Bold & Fresh Tour DVD

O'REILLY: Well, I mean, that was one of the most ridiculous statements I've ever heard and I'm glad you pointed out to me. I'm going to use it in the dumbest thing of the week tomorrow on The Factor. Number one, why are you surprised. The entire Obama administration, he is obviously serving at the behest of the president, hates cable news because the president gets worked over pretty hard. That's number one. But for this guy to say there isn't as much news as there was five or six years ago, I mean, does he miss the 24 hour/7 cycle? I mean, it's crazy. So I

GLENN: The problem is they don't

O'REILLY: He's a political guy. But look, Beck, this is where you get all bent out of shape and upset when guys say stuff, all right? I

GLENN: No, no.

O'REILLY: move in when guys do stuff, but I will

GLENN: December 21st, December 21st the FCC yesterday announced they are voting on net neutrality. If you just wait until people do stuff, then it's too late to do something when they shut you down.

O'REILLY: Well, no. No, I like the dialogue but I'm not going to be running around panicking. Why don't you explain to me, because I am not nearly as intelligent as you are.

GLENN: No, no, you are more intelligent than me but you are not as good on the DVD or live performances. And that's your words, not mine. I

O'REILLY: You guys jocked me on that.

GLENN: I don't know what you're saying. Look

O'REILLY: Jeez, man.

GLENN: We just drew straws on who was going to edit. We're just drawing straws on who was going to edit.

O'REILLY: Tell me what this FCC vote says to you. What does it say? What's going to happen?

GLENN: Well, if you go to Cass Sunstein, what net neutrality means is now if you go to FoxNews.com, you will have Arianna Huffington, a little box pop up with her showing that Bill O'Reilly is wrong on this or here's an opposing view of Bill O'Reilly and it's

O'REILLY: They are going to force, they are going to force people on the Net to do those things. See, that's unconstitutional. It's not going to happen. And Cass Sunstein can run around in short pants all day long screaming he wants it, but it's not going to happen.

GLENN: Since when did you wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ]

GLENN: Since when did these people care about the Constitution? They are talking about the good and plenty clause.

O'REILLY: They can't do it because as soon as they do NewsCorp or whatever will bring them in, they will slap an injunction on them and that's what will happen. That's our system. They can try. But I don't even think they are going to try. Look, I think if Barack Obama goes into these waters

GLENN: Do you want to lose another bet with me?

O'REILLY: If these guys go into the waters, then forget about campaign in '12.

GLENN: They don't care about the campaign. They don't care. Look what they did last time. They didn't care about this. Did you have you heard the audio? Do you have the audio, Pat, of this whole thing is rigged?

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Have you played that have you heard this yet, Bill?

O'REILLY: No.

GLENN: Where you have Senator Bennet from Colorado after the vote of the food safety bill saying this whole thing is rigged.

BENNET: Because it's all rigged. I mean, the whole conversation is looked, the whole conversation is

[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ].

GLENN: Hold on, Bill. He's going on. He's not hearing it.

O'REILLY: It gives me stuff to follow up on, but there's not a chance in hell of this stuff happening. It's just not going to happen.

GLENN: Well, you said I wouldn't

O'REILLY: Two years from now when we're on the Bold Fresh Tour in the Yukon or wherever we're going to be. You know, we'll have the same situation.

GLENN: Siberia, Treblinka.

O'REILLY: Beck, you and I both know that I'm not going away, our websites aren't going away, Arianna Huffington's not going to appear on my website, ever!

GLENN: I hope you're right. But

O'REILLY: (Inaubidle).

GLENN: All right, Bill, we will see you tomorrow in

O'REILLY: In New Orleans tomorrow night, Dallas the Saturday night show sold out but the matinee still tickets available. Get the Bold Fresh DVD if you can't make it. We'll see you in the big easy.

GLENN: All right, man, see you. Bill O'Reilly, and he's right. He's I mean, he's absolutely right on it and that is that I'm better than he is.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: On the DVD.

STU: Well, he said it very clearly.

GLENN: He did very clearly.

PAT: I mean, we should play it again a few times.

GLENN: We should.

PAT: And

GLENN: It was said with conviction, too.

PAT: It was.

GLENN: I felt bad for him. Sure, it might have all been in the editing but, hey, you can make excuses all you want.

STU: Yeah, sure. And it's you know, it was the first thing he brought up in the interview. It was that important to make sure that we knew that you were better than him on the DVD.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And that's

GLENN: Should we say, should we narrow it to just the DVD?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Because you might have been

PAT: Do the edit the letters DVD out and just leave it at that. You don't want to get superfluous.

STU: You don't want to get bogged down in formats.

GLENN: No.

STU: The bottom line is you're better than him is what he's trying to say.

GLENN: And the good thing is I can get away with it because there's less news and media and less scrutinization and everything?

PAT: Yeah, nobody will know.

GLENN: No one will know. I could say anything on this program and no one will scrutinize me.


 

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.
