Glenn Beck: Pelosi solves energy crisis


Book link: Know Your Power

GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. We go to the Obama campaign now and Honky Whitesville who is with us. Hello, Honky.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Hello, Glenn, how are you? Thank you again nor having me on your program.

GLENN: You are the liaison to the white community?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: I'm Barack Obama's white liaison. You have to remember white people don't have to be afraid. You see, Barack Obama looks different than other Presidents and has a funny name and I know that's why you won't vote for him but you have to remember he has white friends. So it's okay.

GLENN: And that's what you're here to remind us?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Well, that's part of it. But you have to remember, too, that he's also

GLENN: Don't you think this is a little I mean of the campaign, don't you think this is a little shallow? Aren't you really saying that America is a racist nation just by saying things like, you know, we won't vote for him because he's black?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Well, no one has ever said that. We are just saying you won't vote for him because he looks different and has a funny name, it's completely different. I don't know what you're saying when you say it has something to do with his race. We've never said that.

GLENN: But what do you mean he looks different? I mean, John McCain looks different than I do, too.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: No, he doesn't. He looks exactly, they all look alike. All the white people look alike.

GLENN: But see, now you are bringing race into it.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: I don't know why you keep bringing race up.

GLENN: What is the point? Why are you calling?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: A lot of people are commenting, I'm sure you've heard the talk that the Democrats have solved the oil crisis.

GLENN: No, that's one point I haven't heard yet. They solved the energy crisis?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Yeah. Oil prices were high. Remember that? Since then Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama have reconsidered supporting offshore drilling and prices have dropped by $30 a barrel.

GLENN: Wait a minute. So weren't you on this program saying that when George Bush said I'm going to remove the federal ban on

HONKY WHITESVILLE: George tell me what part of this is wrong. Oil prices high, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama start talking about oil and now it's low. I mean, now it's pretty much free. I mean, you go to any gas station. There's too much gas at the tanks. They can't give you the gas fast enough. That's the biggest problem we're facing today.

GLENN: Okay. So this is Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama that have solved this?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Yes. Not just talking about oil. It's deeper than that. It's also intelligent conservation. For example, think about a book, okay? You take trees, you murder them, you ship them to a factory, you refine them into paper, you ship the paper to a warehouse, then to another factory where the books are printed. Then transport them to another warehouse where they await distribution and hundreds of trucks, shipping to thousands of individual bookstores where the people buy them and individually bring them to maybe millions of houses and it takes a lot of energy for that entire process.

GLENN: So you're saying that

HONKY WHITESVILLE: So how are you going to solve that?

GLENN: How?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Enter Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi, if she had written a book that was in any way readable, she could have sold a lot of copies, tens of thousands of copies. But instead she dedicated herself to write one of the biggest flops in literary history to save her energy future. Think about the damage.

GLENN: So wait a minute. You are saying that wait a minute. You are saying that she intends

HONKY WHITESVILLE: She humiliated herself for this country.

GLENN: You are saying is that the background of the office there?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: I don't know, there's somebody, there is a guy delivering a package and he definitely doesn't understand energy.

GLENN: So what you're saying is Nancy Pelosi intentionally wrote one of the worst books ever written, maybe it is, maybe it isn't. I, nor anybody else in America has read it.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Yeah, that's the point.

GLENN: But it is that she either wrote it intentionally bad or she wrote something about like, you know, having principles when she has no principles. You know what I mean?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Yeah.

GLENN: It would be like me writing a book on my experience as an African American.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Uh huh.

GLENN: I don't have one.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Right, exactly, yeah. Because you're yeah. This is I mean, you have to think about the dedication here. This is a woman who will, for the country, write one of the worst pieces of crap ever written, on a national stage embarrass herself in front of millions of Americans for this country. Now, think about this. The amazing thing is not only is Nancy saving energy with her awful, awful book, her terrible embarrassment of a book.

GLENN: Are you really with the Obama campaign?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Of course I am.

GLENN: Okay.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Why would you question?

GLENN: Well, I'm just thinking, Honky Whitesville, I mean, that sounds a little suspicious but then you seem to be a little you seem to be harping on the quality of the book.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Well, I am pointing out that she did intentionally write the worst book ever written. But if she didn't write such a terrible, horrible failure of a book, she wouldn't have been able to save that energy. But beyond that she's actually creating energy as well. This is absolutely fascinating.

GLENN: How is she doing that?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: There are tens of thousands of her books that have absolutely no hope of being sold.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Okay.

GLENN: No chance.

GLENN: Right.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: It's never going to happen. Tens of thousands of copies of this booger just sitting in a warehouse.

GLENN: Well, maybe they would be sold.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Zero chance, no.

GLENN: Somebody's got to say maybe my couch is uneven and buy that book.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: It would just bring a bad aura into your home, okay?

GLENN: Maybe there's somebody who is so cold in the winter because they can't afford the high gas prices, they are so cold, they don't even have a fireplace but they're like, "Honey, I was walking down the street. They were handing these books out for free and they said just normally we're against book burnings but this one should be burned."

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Bingo, Glenn, you're absolutely right. This is what she did. She made tens of thousands of these books, made them completely unsellable. Did I mention they are unreadable, you couldn't do it if you tried to read it, it's that horrible?

GLENN: Yes, yes.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Now there's tens of thousands that we can burn to create energy. If you just burned all of Nancy Pelosi's unsold books, you could power all of San Diego for 11 1/2 months.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Wait a minute.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Even could electrify the border fence.

GLENN: Hold on just hold on just a second. You're actually, this is the Obama campaign, you're advocating book burning?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Well, for our energy future, this is what the Obama campaign is about, securing our energy future by burning Nancy Pelosi's unsold books.

GLENN: But wouldn't, wouldn't the output of carbon from burning those books, because ink I'm sure you know being in the Obama campaign.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Yes.

GLENN: Ink is very environmentally unfriendly.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Of course I know that. Why would you say I didn't know it? I mean

GLENN: Well, because you are advocating burning of books.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Well, you have, this is it's all about you have to take a reasoned, logical stance on this and look at the risk and reward.

GLENN: Okay.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Yes, we may do some damage to the environment in the short term, but the positive is no one reads this horrible book. It's horrible. No one will buy this book. This is an utter failure.

GLENN: But wait a minute. It's called Know Your Power, a Message to America's Daughters. It's about how she did (laughing). It's a book about how she did it. Honky, are you there? Are you there, Honky?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Yes, I'm here.

GLENN: Are you okay?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Yes. I dropped the phone.

GLENN: It's how she did it

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Did you know, and this is a fact that people don't know, if you stacked all of the, all of the Nancy Pelosi unsold books up on top of each other and you climbed to the top of it, you'd have to duck because you might hit your head on the space station.

GLENN: That many unsold books?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: That many. If you just

GLENN: How many has she sold? You must be exaggerating. For instance, my book has been out for a year, almost a year.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: And you hurt the environment with all those copies.

GLENN: Right. And we printed them on extra heavy, extra expensive paper, too, with lots of ink on every page.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Each page murdered another tree.

GLENN: Now this book has been out, it was on the New York Times best selling list for 18 weeks.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Right.

GLENN: Now it's nowhere to be found. We sold

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Hundreds of thousands of copies.

GLENN: Right. But last week we sold, like, 2500 copies.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Right. Because it's been out for almost a year.

GLENN: How many, how many copies has Nancy Pelosi's book sold? Last week, what is it, second week out?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Less.

GLENN: What?

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Less.

GLENN: No, but she was on the she's on vacation now but she's working.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Well, she's doing a book tour meaning that people are coming out, or in theory, are coming out to meet her and buy her book. So you'd think she would sell a lot of copies. But that's how horrible she made this book, Glenn. It's like, think about it this way. If a good Nancy Pelosi book is a plate of nachos, this is like pouring rat poison on the nachos. So you are not going to want to eat the nachos.

GLENN: I see what you're saying. I see what you're saying.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: Our energy future has been locked down by Nancy Pelosi's pathetic writing.

GLENN: All right. Well, thank you very much.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: And I doubt she wrote any of it anyway.

GLENN: All right.

HONKY WHITESVILLE: She probably just farmed that puppy out. Worked out pretty well for her.

GLENN: Thank you very much. Honky Whitesville from the Obama campaign. 

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."
