Poll: Is Glenn emotionally stable?

Glenn: So, that's going on and then we get into the break and Dan says, did you hear the Imus audio? Play the Imus audio.

Voice: He seems like a lovely guy, Glenn Beck. But he seems he just seems to me and I'm just a casual observer like he's ready to kill himself.

Glenn: Please stop, stop. What does that mean?

Stu: What it means is that Imus has achieved the most accurate moment of broadcast journalism in the last

Glenn: It doesn't seem like I'm going to kill myself.

Stu: You always seem like you're going to kill yourself.

Glenn: There's other times that do I seem like I'm going to kill myself now?

Stu: I certainly wouldn't put it past you. At any moment, you will

Glenn: That's not true. And listen to the worth part of it. Michael Graham comes back.

Voice: Which God forbid he would do.

Voice: I would move away from that part of the conversation for reasons I'll tell you later, but

Glenn: What? What does that mean? Does Michael Graham have I been trying to hang myself in my garage lately? I mean, what does that mean?

Stu: You've talked about trying to kill your wanting to kill yourself a lot of times on this program.


Beck from the Dead - Glenn's now famous YouTube video from January of 2008...

Glenn: That's a cry for help. That's not actually trying to kill yourself.

Stu: You've said wait a minute. You just had a YouTube video out in which you were saying because of your butt injury

Glenn: That was drug induced.

Stu: Let me

Glenn: Listen, what does he say Michael Graham just made it sound like, I've got information. I've just cut him down on the way here. I just backed his car out of the garage.

Stu: The YouTube happened in January

Glenn: I just gave him mouth to mouth 10 minutes ago. Don, I'll talk to you about this off the air.

Stu: You said you were willing to kill yourself if you had the opportunity, because of your butt surgery.

Glenn: I was in the hospital at the time. They had me all doped up. I didn't know what I was doing.

Stu: Glenn.

Glenn: What?

Stu: Let me tell you something about my life. I think it's an interested biographical point. I have never wanted to kill myself. You act like the fact that it was only four months away like it's this great thing. Most people

Glenn: I'm four months away from my last suicide bout and I

Stu: Sarah, any suicide attempts recently, anything? Dan?

Dan: No, quote, unquote, bouts with suicide.

Stu: No. Do you understand that

Glenn: I've only had two.

Stu: And you know do you know what's amazing here?

Glenn: Only two and they're very far apart from each other. The last one was in the 1980's.

Stu: No. The last one was in January.

Glenn: Well, not the last last one but the last one. The first one was back in the Eighties.

Stu: But think about this. The last one, it was in the Eighties, but also if you're looking back over this last one, that one is so far away it's like the last one the first one you bring up is in January. The last one was in January.

Stu: I have none, no attempts, no thinking bit. I don't think about it.

Glenn: I don't think it's right if I am to say that.

Stu: Let's put it this way: If this does not in one quick burst to prove how Don Imus has had the lengthy career he has and is going to the broadcasting hall of fame and all of his achievements, just as a casual observer picks that up. He's fully analyzed your life perfectly.

Glenn: What else does he say, Dan?

Voice: I've seen him occasionally, not for any length of time, really, but

Glenn: What does that mean?

Voice: He seems like he's emotionally troubled.

Glenn: That is not true!

Stu: That is on your business card.

Glenn: It's not. I'm not emotionally troubled. I'm not emotionally troubled.

Stu: It says Glenn Beck TV host emotionally troubled.

Glenn: I'm not emotionally troubled.

Stu: Yes, you are.

Glenn: I am, but not really. I mean, I'm kind of emotionally troubled.

Stu: And this one's

Glenn: I know. I'm deeply emotionally troubled, but I'm working through it.

Stu: Dead serious.

Glenn: What?

Stu: Like you couldn't have a sentence describing you that would not include the words "emotionally troubled." Like, that is, like your defining characteristic. I mean that sincerely. You're a good guy you're just emotionally troubled.

Glenn: I think I'm emotionally more healthy than most people. (Quack, quack). Did anybody else hear that duck?

Critical Race Theory: A special brand of evil


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."
