Glenn Beck: Daily Kos, internet rag

Anchorage TV Station: Sarah Palin Was "Definitely Pregnant" With Trig

GLENN: So Lee Stranahan wrote Daily Kos--this is on the Huffington Post--Daily Kos embraces the Palin fake pregnancy rumor, but rejects the Edwards story. I love this. It's the whackiest rumor about Sarah Palin or any other politician so far this election. It's making its way through the Internet and, of course, it came from the Daily Kos. Let's hear from the noted reporter, Arc XIX, what is that, Arc 19? Following up on a story by widely respected Inky 99. You know, here's the thing. If you are going to report stories, you should probably go with something a little more credible than Inky 99. Maybe it's just me: Well, Sarah, I'm calling you a liar. And not even a good one. Trig Paxson Van Palin is not your son, he is your grandson and the further forward you come with this revelation to the public, the better.

You know what's really impressive to me is how inconsistent, how inconsistent people like me are being. You know what I mean? Here I'm saying let's not go after these things because there's nothing there, they're discredited. But then I immediately spend so much time on the fake birth certificate of Obama's. Oh, no, wait a minute. That doesn't work. What was it, last Friday somebody called up and said, Glenn, how about his fake birth certificate? And I said, stop with the fake birth certificate. There's nothing there and it discredits you. Did we really, Stu?

STU: Yeah. Remember, that was a couple of weeks ago.

GLENN: We did an argument against the idiots on it?

STU: Yes, disproving some of the ridiculous myths about Obama, that that's not the reason for him not to be President. There's real reasons for him to be President.

GLENN: Okay. So anyway, this is on the Daily Kos from Inky 99 and Arc XIX. The whole story is based on an insulting view of fundamentalist Christians. Listen, this is the Huffington Post. The whole story is based on an insulting view of fundamentalist Christians that they would be so freaked out by the teenage pregnancy that they would have the governor, the most highly visible and public woman in a small fish bowl in Alaska fake a pregnancy to cover up the sins of her daughter Bristol.

First of all, if she's faked it once for her kid, why isn't she faking it a second time? Anybody think of that? Let me ask you this question. Women, can you get all technical with me and tell me how you're five months pregnant when you gave birth to a baby in April? How does that can somebody get all technical with me?

Let's see. It goes on and on and on. Then he says, the irony for me, of course, is that despite making over 50 short political videos with a clear progressive point of view, I was banned on the Daily Kos for saying what seemed reasonable that John Edwards was seen at the Beverly Hilton late at night. To be sure, some on Daily Kos pointed up the numerous problems with the Palin story, but the community in large part embraced it and it is part of a trend. The election hasn't even been won yet and there is already liberal hubris developing. Progressive standard bearers such as the Daily Kos and Keith Olbermann have been showing lines lately listen to this. Again this is from the Huffington Post. Does it sound familiar have been showing signs lately of a nasty tendency towards stifling dissenting opinions and promoting the sorts of crazy rumors usually associated with the right than the real based community. It's not effective, it's not progressive, and it's not good or accurate reflection on Barack Obama or the Democratic party.

Again, does it sound familiar? The Democrats have been hijacked by the uber left. The Democratic party. How many times have I said on this program, Democrats, good Democrats, when are you going to stand up. Good Democrats, when are you going to recognize that you have been hijacked and you are being used by the left and you're about to be discarded? You must grab your party again. How many times have we said that? How many times have we said we are entering a time that if the left, the uber left gets control of congress and they get control of the White House, your point of view is going to be squashed. People like me will not exist.

Here's a guy who is a blogger for the Huffington Post, who they wouldn't let speak out about John Edwards. Remember, that John Edwards story, that wasn't in the mainstream media. Nobody in the media wanted to cover that story because it wasn't relevant, and it was only coming from the blogs. I'm sorry. Wasn't even the blog. It was the National Enquirer. They didn't want to cover it. They sat on that story for over a year.

Has anybody noticed the play on this story? Has anyone noticed the play on this yet? This is everywhere, and it came from Inky 99. It's amazing. The Daily Kos immediately shuts it down on John Edwards. The mainstream media immediately shuts it down on John Edwards. This one, well, we the Atlantic Today is calling for the obstetrician: We want the records, we want them and we want them now. Excuse me? Has anyone yet called for the records on John Edwards' child? Which, of course, isn't his.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

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.

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

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?
