Glenn Beck: Obama 'I will win, don't worry'

GLENN: So anyway, he's out in California. He's raising money and he's like, I will win. But he says he's going to win. And then Nancy Pelosi introduced him as a leader that God has blessed us with at this time. See, this is the kind of, you know, the holy Trinity thing. If he's the Messiah, isn't he God as well? So how could God bless us with him? You see what I mean? Unless it's the three in one, then I get it. But I don't know who the other person is in the who do you suppose is playing the role of the Holy Ghost? I... could be whispering in his ear. Might be Karl Marx. No, I Stu just said that maybe the vice president. No, I think it's got to be Karl Marx because remember what the Holy Ghost does is just reaffirm that it is right. He testifies, if you will, of the savior. So that would have to be Karl Marx. Karl Marx would have to just whisper in your ear, you know, just, "Yes, evil tax, evil tax on those evil oil companies, they're so evil. Rich people, oh, my gosh, they're evil." "I think the Holy Ghost just spoke to me." If the Holy Ghost starts to speak to you with a Russian accent: "Yes, I would vote for him, dah." If that's what you hear as the Holy Ghost, I would... I'm just saying. The Holy Ghost may be Lenin, Karl Marx, one of those guys.

So anyway, then Barack Obama in his speech, he then says and I don't want to quote this. "Now, you want to win and saying it doesn't make it so. It would be nice to think" I'm quoting "That after eight years of economic disaster, eight years of bungled policy fighting a war that should have never been authorized and never been waged that cost us trillions of dollars and thousands of lives that people should say let's toss the bums out, toss the bums out, we're starting from scratch, we're starting over, this isn't working. Continuing to quote: So I understand why a lot of folks are saying this should just happen. Excuse me. That you should just be elected President, that all of a sudden it should just, it should just happen. Is there anybody that you know that says this should just happen?

Stu, John McCain, Giuliani, Mitt Romney, any of these people?

STU: Well, there are a lot of people that are saying this should just happen. They just are all journalists. Every one of them happens to be employed

GLENN: Shhh, shhh, shhh. Quiet. Dah, this is true. My gosh, I think I just was touched by the Holy Spirit. I think, I think you're right on that one, Stu.

STU: Me and the Holy Spirit are tight.

GLENN: So I understand why a lot of folks are saying this should just happen. Quoting: Why are we having to run all these television commercials? Why do we have to raise all of this money? Just read the papers. Those knuckle heads who have been in charge, throw them out. But the American politics aren't that simple, end quote. No. No, they're not. It's weird. We have to have elections. It's crazy, I know. It's nuts. Well, hopefully that's some of the change that will be coming our way. If we can just get rid of those pesky elections. Wouldn't that be nice? The fact of the matter is at a certain point still quoting when government has not been serving the people for this long, people get cynical. They tune out. They start saying to themselves, a plague on both of your houses. They are willing to consume negative information more frequently than positive information for good reason. They've seen how promises haven't been kept, end quote. Okay, hang on. So I just want to see if I understand this. Somebody help me out on this because I'm not I'm not the brightest guy. If I understand his quote right, he's saying that the only reason, the only reason why he has to raise money and run commercials and run for President is not because that's what the Constitution says. We got that crazy election thing. It's that the Republicans have been so bad at keeping their promise that people are also blaming the Democrats for that kind of an atmosphere and that's why he's not winning in a landslide because the Republicans have broken their promises.

STU: Right. The only reason you can't trust Democrats is because you can't trust Republicans.

GLENN: Gosh, he is good.

STU: Makes a lot of sense.

GLENN: Dah, he is.

STU: What's interesting, too, is if you really think about it, one of the only reasons certainly Republicans are to blame. But one of the reasons the Republicans haven't been keeping their promises is because the Democrats haven't allowed them to do anything they have been trying to do.

GLENN: That's not entirely true.

STU: I didn't say it was entirely true but certainly things like drilling that they put through 100 times, all that stuff has been

GLENN: Nyet, nyet, nyet

STU: I'm glad he's still with me.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

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


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.
