Glenn questioned on GMA


Watch Glenn's appearance on GMA...


**Note the pink pants... Why Glenn? Why?

GLENN: Did anybody see Good Morning America today? I was actually surprised on how fairly they treated me, but Claire Shipman showed up in my office a couple of days ago. She's from ABC. She used to be the White House correspondent and everything else. She comes to my office and I thought, "Oh, boy, I'm in trouble." I mean, you know, they set up a library in the conference room. All of a sudden the conference room table is gone. You know, I come into the room, they've got these bookshelves, they've -- I don't even know where they found the books. They trucked books in and all of a sudden it looks like a library in my conference room. And I said, this isn't a cute little piece, is it? Spent about 35 minutes with Claire Shipman and she shows me all kinds of video and all kinds -- I went back in the archives of my program and, you know, tried to find things that I had said against Hillary Clinton, and there was the one thing that is, you know, always played where I was talking about how she sounds, how she sounds like the stereotypical, excuse the expression, bitch. But she does. You listen to her and she just grates on you at times when she gets -- when she gets tough. And we're going to, "You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to take these money from these companies." She starts to sound like voice that says, "Take out the garbage." So that's -- you know, I said that, I don't know, about a year ago or whatever and Claire brings that in along with some of the things that other people had said on the air. And I said, I feel like this is 60 Minutes. I mean, somebody get some water so I can put it on the top of my lip, will you?

Well, here is the piece that ran on 60 Minutes today about sexism in America. This, I guess, is the last cry of, no pun intended, of Hillary Clinton. This is where she falls on her sword. At the end she lost because we're sexists. Here it is.

REPORTER: The apparent twilight of Hillary Clinton's candidacy has opened the floodgates on profound anger for a lot of women. Protests are planned for this weekend, chat rooms are on fire. We decided to check out this charge of sexism but we should warn you, you might want to cover your children's ears. Depending on your point of view, you could find some of the language offensive. Both Clintons are leveling the charge.

BILL CLINTON: Nobody told Jesse Jackson he should drop out in 1988. Nobody told people that ran against me in 1992 they had to drop out. This is really interesting. Why are they doing this?

HILLARY CLINTON: So much of what has occurred that has been very sexist --

REPORTER: Sexism. Suddenly the S word is everywhere. --

GLENN: Stop for a second. Stop, stop. Does anybody believe this sexism? Is that why Hillary Clinton is losing? It's not because of sexism. It quite honestly is because she's not as real as Barack Obama. Barack Obama just looks like a guy who you would hang out with, you can talk to. He's talking to you like a human being. That's why he's so far ahead. He's also cool. He's the cool guy. Everybody wants to hang out with a cool guy. It's exactly why Bill Clinton won against Bob Dole and George Bush, because he was the cool guy. We vote like we vote for American Idol now. It has nothing to do with the fact that she's a woman. I mean, jeez, for the love of Pete, are we really a country that's not going to vote for somebody because she's a woman? Are we really not going to vote for somebody because they're black? Are we really the country that's not going to vote for somebody because of their religion? Come on. I have more faith in America than that. There are those dopes out there, but that's not what's going on here. You know who she is. You don't like her. You don't trust her. It's not sexism.

Roll the tape, Dan.

REPORTER: Debating its existence and impact. This election means you've not gotten anywhere, girl, blogs one frustrated woman. Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan jumps in calling the sexism charge Sissy blame gaming. The media center which doesn't endorse a specific candidate has put together a greatest hits video called "Sexism Sells."

VOICE: She was calm, she was charming, her haired, cosmetic, her hair looked great.

VOICE: When she comes on television, I involuntarily cross my legs.

REPORTER: Wow, extreme examples to be sure, but --

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Extreme examples to be sure? Her hair looks great? How many comments did we have on Mitt Romney? How many comments did you hear on Mitt Romney's hair, it's never out of place? That's not an extreme comment. People have been talking about her hair forever because she changes it all the time. Just like people talked about Mitt Romney's hair. Just like people talked about John Edwards' hair. Was it sexist when you talk about John Edwards' hair?

REPORTER: We did some digging ourselves and came up with more.

MATTHEWS: Is it smart politics for Republicans to demonize Hillary Clinton?

VOICE: Is being covered by -- there we go.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait, stop. Could you go back to that Chris Matthews demonizing comment? Play that again. Did he say the Republicans or the Democrats? Go ahead.

REPORTER: Digging ourselves and came up with more.

MATTHEWS: Is it smart politics for Republicans to demonize Hillary Clinton?

GLENN: Stop. Can I tell you something? The Republicans are not engaged in this anymore. The Republicans, most -- I don't know about you, but are you following, are you really watching this? I mean, you're watching it because you're like, okay, well, I've got to pay attention because I've got to see what these people are really all about. But nobody's out there -- the people who are demonizing Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the most part are the Democrats because they're in the -- they're in the battle. Right now that's not happening. Right now it's not happening with the Republicans, generally speaking. I mean, I talk about it. You know, I talk about Barack Obama. I talk about Hillary Clinton. I'm doing it now. But we're not the ones leading this. We're not the ones blogging -- do you know anybody that's blogging right now about Hillary Clinton and sexism? "Oh, well, she's just, she's a racist. No, no, he's a sexist." Do you know anybody that's doing that?

VOICE: About the one thing we learned about the Bobbitt case is there's a great deal of resentment. That's why Oprah's huge. Women are angry. I'm serious.

REPORTER: Is that stuff sexist, funny or really bad taste? We asked Chris Matthews and Tucker Carlson if they wanted to talk about it. The only personality, though, who manned up to talk about his words with us, radio and TV host Glenn Beck.

I'm going to show you some examples. One thing you said -- don't get nervous.

GLENN: She's a stereotypical bitch. You know what I mean? She's a stereotypical nagging... you know what I mean?

VOICE: Do you know what I mean?

REPORTER: What did you mean?

GLENN: We were watching one of her interviews or whatever she was doing, a speech. And she had that tone of voice. She just sounds like -- I can't listen because it sounds like my wife saying, "Take out the garbage."

REPORTER: But what about the B word? Is that okay to use? Do you think I should say it? I don't want to say it. I don't like it.

GLENN: No, you know what? Here's the thing. Calling her that, no. I don't think I'd call her that. Hope I've never called her that. Saying, sounds like the stereotypical -- probably a better word was nag.

REPORTER: One of the problems is sexism is hard to define. The virtue of name-calling, if you will, or slurs like "Iron my shirt" is that sexists are so obvious. But what about the very saying, Hillary's crackling, Hillary nutcracker, her legs lined with spikes? In the bigger picture even Obama supporters like leading feminist Naomi Wolf is feeling unfair pressure but she thinks it's self-defeating for the candidate to talk about it.

VOICE: When you're saying I want to be President of the United States of America, what you also have to be telling the American people is "I can handle anything" and you can't expect fairness.

REPORTER: And on that point the feminists and the provocateur agree.

GLENN: Hold on just one second. The provocateur. This is when I held up the Hillary Clinton nutcracker and I held it up right to the camera and this is what I said.

GLENN: If I'm Hillary Clinton, instead of saying sexist, sexist, sexist, I walk on stage and go, "You're damn right." That's what I want from the President of the United States.

REPORTER: This is such a divisive issue. Even at Good Morning America we've had heated debates sometimes accompanied by surprise blasts.

GLENN: Stop. This is not a divisive issue, because Claire said that to me. Claire Shipman when she was doing the report, she said, "You know, we've had these arguments at the office" and I'm thinking to myself, boy, get a life. People at the office, you are having these arguments? This is a manufactured argument. Do you know any real person, and I mean this sincerely, do you know any real person that really, truly believes that Hillary Clinton is losing because she's a woman? She's not. She's losing because Barack Obama seems to be a better candidate. When I say "Seems to be," he's not a better candidate but he's the cool candidate. And in our American Idol world, that's what people are going for, "Let me be Simon." "Oh, dreadful. I don't think you're going to make it."

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."
