Glenn Beck: Obama's in

GLENN: I want the last part where he's really starting to get going, Dan. Because listen to the things that he's -- listen to the things that he's saying. Go ahead, Dan.

SENATOR OBAMA: America, this is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the promises of the past. Our time to bring new energy and new ideas to the challenges we face.

GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second. I wish I believed that. I mean, I think he is going to turn the page on the policies of the past. Unfortunately I think he's only going to turn the page on the policies of the distant past, not the recent past. We're going full steam ahead on the socialized ideas of the recent past. I'd like to turn the page and go, you know what, that whole bigger government thing, that just doesn't work, no. But buckle up, gang, because it's going to get bigger and bigger and bigger. Listen to what he's promising.

SENATOR OBAMA: Our time to offer a new direction for this country that we love.

GLENN: Stop. Notice he loves his country. He said that, like, four times: I love this country, and I'm not going to question anybody else if they love their country. I'm definitely not going to do that.

SENATOR OBAMA: The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge, I face this challenge with profound humility and knowledge of my own limitations.

GLENN: That's fantastic.

SENATOR OBAMA: But I also face it with limitless face in the capacity of the American people.

GLENN: Stop. Then why don't you have some of your policies reflect the faith in people? Why babysit people? If you have unlimited -- see, that's where compassionate conservatism -- I can never say that word -- conservatism comes in. I have unlimited faith in people. That's why I say let them fail. Because when they fail, they will pick themselves back up again. People are only renewed when they fail. The Phoenix can only rise after it has been reduced to ashes. I have unlimited faith in people because I myself have failed over and over and over again. And through my failure I built success. Through your failure you will build success. You learn from your mistakes. You get stronger. You become more determined. You know, I heard Barack Obama say one of the reasons why he is really fighting for this is because somehow or another he is trying to prove to his father that he was worth staying for. And I thought to myself, there is another example of failure doing good. Nobody is suggesting that we force his father to be there. But that's what government does. They force you to be together. They force you into a situation that you say -- that No, wait, it's okay. I don't want marriages to fail, I don't want families to break apart, but I'm a realist to know that sometimes they will. Because living on incorrect principles or whatever the thing is, they will fail from time to time. We should do everything we can to bring it together, but not the government. Let people make their own decision and they will grow stronger. They can do one of two things. They can wallow in their own misery, and those people I don't want to help. Let them wallow in their own misery. You're creating it. You are creating the problem and making it even worse. "Go, you're on your own. I don't have any time for you." Or they can say, "This made me stronger. I took this from the -- and it's a driving force in my life." That's good. That is an unlimited belief in the strength of the American people. On the ingenuity of the American people. On the basic principle that the American people don't ever give up. But that's not what his policies say. He can say these words all he wants but his policies say something different. He's a great speech giver. It's so easy to listen to him and go, yeah. But when you actually know his policies, they say the opposite. We'll continue here in just a second.

GLENN: All right, this is a time. This is our time. That's what Barack Obama said last night. What does the time mean? What is coming our way?

SENATOR OBAMA: Because if we are willing to work for it and fight for it and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment that we begin to --

GLENN: Stop. Stop. If we believe in it. Believe in what exactly? If we believe in it, if we are willing to fight for it -- well, you don't mean literally fight, do you? I mean, let's talk. Can't we just sit down at the table? We don't want to literally fight. We can't win that fight. That fight will never be -- no matter how many troops you put on the ground, you'll never make any progress. He was completely wrong on fighting, 100% wrong on the surge. So I think he means fighting metaphorically. But what else did he say?

SENATOR OBAMA: Care for the sick and --

GLENN: Stop, stop. This will be the time -- go back. This will be the time that we began to care for the sick. Excuse me? I think we have been caring for the sick, and I do care about the sick.

SENATOR OBAMA: And give jobs to the jobless.

GLENN: Stop. And give jobs to the jobless. We're at 5% unemployment. Historically speaking that is very low and what a lot of people call full employment, or close to full employment. We're at 5 hers employment.

SENATOR OBAMA: This is the moment when the rise of the oceans begin to slow and our planet began to heal.

GLENN: Stop. They started to, what? The oceans started to recede? The oceans have been going up since 17, what was it, Stu, 1792? When the little mini ice age stopped? This is the moment that our oceans started to recede and our planet began to heal. We should listen to this man because he's telling us what's coming. I don't know about you. The rest of America, may be. I know France is in love with him. Africa is in love with him. I know at least as of last night only half of the Democrats were in love with him. And I certainly don't like it.

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.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

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.
