Glenn Beck: Olbermann continues to gush

Olbermann continues to gush... See Michelle...

GLENN: This hour I will tell you who I believe the presidential nominee is going to be for John McCain and I'll tell you exactly why I believe it coming up in just a second. First I want to go back to, what was it, night before last Keith Olbermann was on MSNBC and he had just watched Michelle Obama's speech and this is what he said. Listen.

OLBERMANN: Case, I think, closed.

GLENN: Case close.

OLBERMANN: If that was to be more about tone than content, pitch perfect. If it was supposed to be more about content than tone, pitch perfect. If that was supposed to be about friendliness and what they call accessibility, couldn't have done it better. Couldn't have done it better. And the premise of this speech, to try to erase doubts that now seem difficult to voice aloud because they seem almost foolish, that could not have gone better for them. That could not have gone better for them. It's wonderful. It really was terrific. The women in that convention hall, there were tears throughout among the women. And it was not a modeling speech, it was not a salesmanship speech. There was just a I know. I'm beginning to sound borderline sickophantic on this.

GLENN: No! No, Keith, you're not starting to sound that way, and it's not borderline. You crossed the border hours ago.

STU: Actually, Glenn, it is it was borderline sickophantic. It was just borderline between sickophantic and actual worship.

GLENN: Pitch perfect, Stu. When's the last time you ever said that about anything. When's the last time he said anything even close to something like this for a Republican? See, this is what I can't stand. I cannot stand these people with an agenda who won't admit it in the first place. The guy is a socialist. The guy is a Barack Obama supporter, period. Say it. "Look, I want you to know I come as a supporter. So I think this was pitch perfect." I don't have a problem with that. But to come out and do the analysis on this, do you think CNN would ever allow me to do that? Do you think they would ever allow me to do that? Never. Never. Do you think MSNBC would ever allow me to do that? Never. Never. And I you know the words that have never been written in my prompter for me? "Never" have been written. I go over and I did Larry King. I went off prompter immediately. I don't I don't nobody writes words for me. And they were very I made them very nervous because this is what was written in the prompter. What was written in the prompter was, "Hi, I'm Glenn Beck. I'm filling in for Larry King tonight. I appreciate it. Thank you, Mr. King." That was what was written in the prompter. I said something very close to that and then I said, listen, if you don't know who I am, I want to explain something to you. I'm a conservative. So I'm going to try to be as fair as I can, but I come, I come from this with a conservative angle. I just thought it was important for you to know. That was not in prompter. That needs to be said. But you know what? I'm a conservative. You wouldn't hear me say that about John McCain or anybody else: That was pitch perfect, that was pitch perfect. Now, what did he say last night? That was Michelle Obama. What could he possibly say other than it was perfect, people were crying, it was great, it was pitch perfect, it was supposed to be this, it was perfect, it was this, it was perfect, it was just perfect. What could he possibly say about Hillary Clinton? This is Keith Olbermann last night at MSNBC.

OLBERMANN: Grand slam. Grand slam, out of the ballpark, across the street. Across the buildings across the street. Five, six, maybe seven campaign slogans in that speech. Starting out from the getgo, a sock to the jaw of about disunity, a speech that started about Barack Obama, a proud supporter about Barack Obama. Then a lot about her, some about George Bush, twist will it all back to get her supporters to recognize that their goals are now best served by Barack Obama. Then Michelle, then Biden, then several key, strongest hits against John McCain we've heard at this convention and finally tying it all back together. I don't know how it could have been better.

GLENN: He doesn't know. He doesn't know how it could have been any better.

OLBERMANN: I don't know how it could have been better.

GLENN: He doesn't know how it could have been better (laughing). What is he going to say tonight? We have to take wagers on this. What is this man going to say tonight? I want to know. I think he's what's left? What's left? Spoke's speaking tonight? Clinton. Okay. So Bill Clinton's talking tonight and he's already used pitch perfect. Then he's used, out of the ballpark. Rocket ship to the moon. Rocket ship to the moon. He was on a rocket ship to the moon and he just never, he just took off and he was just never he just kept going and going. He was this speech, this speech was like a rocket ship to the moon. He landed on the moon. He set up a little colony there. They discovered, you know, totally 100% green energy that could be floated back magically to space. It couldn't have been even better. If he would have invented 100% clean energy on the moon, there in a colony and shipped it back magically, telepathically as only a Clinton or Obama could do. It couldn't have been better than this speech tonight. It wouldn't have been better. He could have in fact, he could have it was a rocket ship to the moon. He went all the way to the moon, he developed clean energy, he telepathically sent it back to us. He then set up these giant solar panels that he made out of the bones of Newt Gingrich and it collected all of the solar energy and it collected from the sun, it renewed the sun. It made the sun a little more manageable and then he took that solar energy and he shipped it back down here to save children without faces. And those children who have been struggling because of this administration, they haven't been able to afford the food because they needed some sort of food. And you know we can develop it. It's only because big energy hasn't allowed us to make it. You know the big three automakers have the technology to make food go through your face new don't have a mouth. But they have been holding it back because of the pharmaceutical companies and big oil and those damn Democrats and their back room deals with big oil and cigars and the Saudis and Dick Cheney. And it couldn't have been better if he would have just nailed Dick Cheney to a cross on stage there that he had built with solar energy on the moon. It couldn't have been any better if that hadn't happened. I think that's all he's got left.

STU: I think you are underselling the way he's going to react to that speech. It is like

GLENN: You know, I really, truly believe that Bill Clinton came off as Jesus Christ. Now, that is not to be look, I know a lot of people that watch me don't even believe in God but let me use this. Go with me for a second. I believe there is a God and Jesus Christ his son. And the son of God appeared tonight, not to be mistaken with actual God who will be in front of the Greek Temple tomorrow. Being cheered by 80,000 people. And then I think that's really what you have to understand, that I and the father are one. You saw the son tonight. Tomorrow you will see God. And pitch perfect. Couldn't have been any better. Just amazing. Just amazing.

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.

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.
