Glenn Beck: Typical white people


Visit Pat Gray online...

GLENN: Can you imagine, can you imagine if John McCain were going to a church where his old friend who was 80 years old -- and this isn't even the case with Jeremiah Wright -- was 80 years old and he was still preaching this stuff and he was saying, you know, blacks are the problem and we've just got to get around the black problem and John McCain would go for 20 years. And first John McCain said, this is no big deal; I didn't hear those things. And then he later said, okay, I did hear them but, you know, I don't agree with them. And then he said, well, I didn't hear all the really bad things and if I would have heard those really bad things, I would have said something, I would have had a more harsh conversation with him. Can you imagine John McCain saying that?

GRAY: No.

GLENN: There's no way he could have. There wouldn't even have interviewed him for the second part.

GRAY: And then let's say -- I don't think McCain what is black heritage but what if he said something to a friend that was disparaging about white people and then he says, well, just talking about a typical black person, that's all I was doing, my friends. That was nothing racially derogatory. I was just using him as an example of the typical black person.

GLENN: Not even getting into the, been bred to fear white people.

GRAY: Oh, he would be done -- I think first of all he would be done as a legitimate candidate.

GLENN: Of course. You think he would have?

GRAY: He would be -- they would demand he resign from the Senate.

GLENN: Exactly right.

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: The Republicans would replace him with a Pez dispenser.

GRAY: They would.

GLENN: They would. If they had to, they would go, the only guy we've got left is a Pez dispenser. Put it in the seat! Put it in the seat! We're running the Donald Duck Pez dispenser, Donald for President. And you know what? In today's America I would have voted for that one.

GRAY: Yeah, might not be a bad thing.

GLENN: I would have had an easier time voting for the Donald Duck Pez dispenser than John McCain! You can do that now without any racist stuff. I vote for Don the Pez! Hey, that kind of sounds Italian, doesn't it? Don the Pez. Hey, Don the Pez. Let's just say, let's make up a candidate. Let's make him Don the Pez for President! I'm voting for him!

GRAY: I bet if you ran that campaign you could get 50,000, 100,000 votes, maybe a million.

GLENN: Are you kidding me? Don the Pez is going to put candy in everybody's belly. Don the Pez is actually made of something sweet. You can eat Don the Pez. I like it.

GRAY: He will not tax you.

GLENN: Love that.

GRAY: He will not vote against the border fence. He will not increase your gas tax. I like it. I like it. And at the end of the Senate session, you eat him. It's brilliant. It's brilliant.

GLENN: He's got a black friend, Mickey Mouse! He's black -- well, he's almost black.

GRAY: Sort of. Kind of Oreo.

GLENN: No, the only thing that's black about him is his face. Are you kidding me? Never noticed that. Hmmm.

GRAY: We try to be killer blind on those types of things.

GLENN: Do you? On your mice?

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: Unbelievable. Unbelievable. Thanks, Pat.

GRAY: All right.

GLENN: Hey, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.

GRAY: What?

GLENN: Do you have a politician do you know in the Texas area that's not sleeping with prostitutes, doing cocaine, smoking dope, embezzling money, having an affair with his wife or, or making up stories wholesale? Do you have one down there?

GRAY: Let me think. Maybe Ted Poe.

GLENN: Really?

GRAY: Maybe. I don't --

GLENN: Do me a favor. Check in, run the plates on Ted's car.

GRAY: All right, I will.

GLENN: Okay?

GRAY: All right.

GLENN: See what comes up because he's got to be -- I don't think there's a politician left that's not doing something like that.

GRAY: There may be one but I can't say it with certainty.

GLENN: Now, they're going after the mayor of Detroit and he's going to hang on. He says he's not going to give in. But what I'm confused on is I thought that you were only charged with perjury when it mattered, that it didn't -- I mean, he was only lying about sex. And that doesn't --

GRAY: That's his personal life, right?

GLENN: Yeah, it is his personal life. He was having sex in his personal life.

GRAY: It's a witch-hunt. It's another one of these witch-hunts.

GLENN: The vast right wing conspiracies. All right. Thanks. Bye-bye.

STU: This is the way -- I can just see how you and your friend and everyone, you guys are just typical white guys. You don't understand.

GLENN: I'm making a T-shirt. I'm going to make a T-shirt and we're going to have a black box warning on it. Just typical white guy or typical white person. And then it should have a warning label on the black -- on the back. You know, black box kind of warning, you know, like they put on prescription drugs?

STU: Right. And what does it say?

GLENN: I don't know yet but it should have a warning on it that I could at any time experience these side effects, just whiteness can cause these side effects.

STU: I like that. I wouldn't wear it in a million years but I like it.

GLENN: Run the Air Supply again, would you? This music does make you feel better, doesn't it?

STU: It soothes, it soothes the white savage beast.

GLENN: Yeah. Which is like, "I'm going to get so upset with you in a second."

STU: This is actually, we should do an experiment. I've set up a little experiment. You've got you, Dan, as well as you, Glenn.

GLENN: Dan?

DAN: Hi.

GLENN: The experiment?

DAN: Sure.

STU: You guys are both typical white people. You feel good right now, don't you?

GLENN: Sure.

STU: Feeling soothed? Nothing big going on. Are you guys fans of horror movies like --

GLENN: Well, not really. The Ring really freaked me out.

STU: It's just something that -- now, actually I have, Dan, set up on the other computer there, if you can just hit the other computer.

DAN: This one over here?

STU: Bring down the Air Supply a little bit. I just want you guys to --.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Oh, wait a minute, hang on, guys, hang on, guys. I'm so freaked out.

DAN: Stu, you've got to give me a warning. Air Supply quick, quick, quick.

(Music playing).

GLENN: Oh, Dan, did, like, your life flash in front of you all of a sudden? I thought we were in danger.

DAN: My heart skipped about six beats.

STU: That's what I was saying, they have these movies out there, horror movies and that's the effect they are supposed to give you, that fear that at any time something could happen. Watch. Hit that other computer again. It's not the same thing. It's something different.

(Music plays).

STU: Calm down. Calm down. Air Supply. Air Supply.

GLENN: All right, please.

STU: Now, I knew it was coming. So I'm not quite as scared. Are you okay? This actually --

GLENN: I can't, I can't do it anymore.

DAN: Glenn's under stress tests and everything.

GLENN: I'm under pressure. Do you know what happened today? Do you know what happened?

STU: What?

GLENN: I got out of the car today and Donovan, who is the doorman here at Radio City, Donovan was standing just out in the street without a sign on him or no warning whatsoever.

DAN: And you didn't have a --

GLENN: Black man at the door. And then what was worse, he came up with me. We went up the elevator, we talk. He's talked to me and I'm like, (screaming).

DAN: He followed you.

STU: Think of the Air Supply.

GLENN: Okay, okay.

STU: He's all out of love.

GLENN: Donovan isn't around, is he?

DAN: I mean, you didn't even have your iPod on or anything to be able to play the music to offset the horror.

STU: Yeah. Dan, put some other Air Supply on your computer there, Air Supply.

DAN: We cleared out everything, right?

GLENN: I need some Xanax, Sarah, if you can just get the doctor to call in --.

(Music playing).

GLENN: (Screaming).

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."
