Glenn Beck: Conservative Porn

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I'm glad you're here. I want to talk a little bit about Sarah Palin. I want to play a couple of things. You know, they said she didn't talk about the economy. Well, you know what? The way to talk about the economy is twofold. Talk about the economy and pull yourself up by the bootstraps, no bailouts for anybody, period. That's it. The other thing, the most important thing to talk about the economy is energy. She did talk about energy and here's a clip from last night.

GOVERNOR PALIN: Our opponents say again and again that drilling will not solve all of America's energy problems, as if we didn't know that already. But the fact, the fact that drilling, though, won't solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all.

GLENN: Stop for a second if you can. This is why she will catch on fire with the American people. She just says she says what you're thinking. People, I've been saying for a long time people are screaming at their televisions. You know, if I don't care if you're Republican or Democrat. You hear these politicians on the TV and they say, drilling's not going to solve the problem. How many times have you said, no kidding; really? Whoa! So what are you going to do? "We're going to give you a magic bean. Jack, Jack, I'll trade you that cow for a magic bean. We'll put that in the tank of your car and you'll go forever." What are you going to do? Well, this is why she's going to she'll take off is because she sounds like you. If she looks like you, lucky you. Stu said call me. I just but also she's presenting some solutions. She's been presenting solutions. Go ahead with the rest of this clip. Is this about the pipeline? Play the clip.

GOVERNOR PALIN: Starting in January in a McCain/Palin administration, we're going to lay more pipelines and build more nuclear plants and create jobs with clean coal and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal and other alternative sources. We need... (cheers and applause). We need American sources of resources. We need American energy brought to you by American ingenuity and produced by American workers.

GLENN: She was speaking my I tell you, last night it was almost erotic. No, it was. Listen to this clip. Cut 2. Or seven.

GOVERNOR PALIN: Harry Reid, the majority of the current "Do nothing" Senate. He not long ago summed up his feelings about our nominee. He said, "I can't stand John McCain." Ladies and gentlemen, perhaps no accolade we hear this week is better proof that we've chosen the right man.

GLENN: Yes! Yes! When stop for a second. When she started to say this stuff, man, it was downright, it was conservative porn. This is as close as you get yeah, thank you. Thank you. Oh, yeah. Now play the rest of that clip.

GOVERNOR PALIN: What the majority leader was driving at is that he can't stand up to John McCain and that is only, that's only one more reason to take the maverick out of the Senate, put him in the White House.

GLENN: Dan, that's when I said stop the music. That's when I said, "Ooh, she said the maverick." It's like, don't talk about your ex, really, don't talk about your ex. You're wrecking the mood here. You know what I mean? When I walked in did anybody else feel like when he walked out on stage last night, ooh, boy. It was like the like you had an amazing night, you had this amazing night... and then you wake up in the morning and you're like, ooh, that was kind of like I felt a little dirty because then John McCain walked on stage and you're like, "Oh, yeah, whew, to get to her I got to sleep with him. I'm not really sure."

Dan, do you have a little Barry White? Because there's let me tell you something. There's nothing like, there's nothing like a little Sarah Palin and Barry White at the same time. Play I know I asked for Cut 13. I want to play Cut 13 and Barry White. I mean....

(Music playing).

GLENN: Thank you. Are we number 3 for a reason? The answer is yes. Now, listen. Just turn down the lights. If you have a candle there on your dashboard or something, just light a candle for a second. Think hot thoughts. Well, hot thoughts that sound a little like this.

GOVERNOR PALIN: Now, I've noticed a pattern with our opponent and maybe you have, too. We've all heard his dramatic speeches before devoted followers, and there is much to like and admire about our opponents. But listening to him speak, it's easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or even a reform, not even in the state Senate.

GLENN: Oh, she's past first base with me right now, she is past first base. I'm saying, yes, baby, yes, I want more. Hang on. I have to have a cigarette.

GOVERNOR PALIN: This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word "Victory," except when he's talking about his own campaign.

GLENN: Oh, yes. Second base. Oh, yes.

GOVERNOR PALIN: But, when the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium lights go out and those styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot...

GLENN: Oh... oh... oh, yes... oh, yes. Right now I'm grossing America out. I know it. I know it.

GOVERNOR PALIN: When that happens, what exactly is our opponent's plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet. The answer...

GLENN: Take me home, Sarah, take me home!

GOVERNOR PALIN: To make government bigger and take more money and give you more orders from Washington and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world.

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop! Stop! This is when my erotic dream stops. Listen, you people who go to conventions. You don't wreck my conservative erotic dreams, okay? I can't take these stupid convention crowds who are always, "Boo!" Or, can we do it? "Yes, we can!" No, I mean, really, can we do it? "Yes, we can!" Or here's my favorite. Here it is: "Barack Obama was right." "And John McCain was wrong!" Oh, shut... may I quote the late, great Archie Bunker... shut up, yous. If I wanted to see you on television, I would have had a camera at your house. I don't want to see you, I don't want to hear you. Shut up, yous.

Did it wreck it for anybody else? I'm watching this thing last night and she's going and she's going and she's going. And I swear to you, I'm like, honey, can you leave the room for a second? And I'm just, I am I'm in love with this woman. And then they start this nonsense, "Boo, boo." And I'm like, let the woman talk. She's mine! She'll never be with you! She's mine! Maybe it's just me. Go ahead and play the rest of this out.

GOVERNOR PALIN: America needs more energy. Our opponent is against producing it. Victory in Iraq is finally in sight and he wants to forfeit. Terrorist states are seeking

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. None of this stuff ever works. When you do this long laundry list of things, they've got to go fast. You know what I mean? They've got to just state them. But these stupid convention people and the Republicans are no better than the Democrats. This is why I hate both parties. Number 751,174, "Why I hate both the Republicans and the Democrats" is because they always come out with these laundry lists and then to make it worse, they always, "Boo! Boo! No way! George Bush sucks!" I can't take it. I can't take it. I don't even want to listen to the rest of the clip.

Sarah, let me tell you something. You were this close to having me. No, you were. You were this close to having me. And I guess you're going to have to keep trying, baby. Just keep trying.

May I just go probably about 40 yards farther than I should? Come on, she's hot. (Sizzling). Why is everybody on my production staff looking at me like, come on, she's hot.

STU: You don't think you went too far already with your I mean, I understand you are making the point of political porn but we don't need you to act it out, ever. Ever again, ever. Never do it, ever.

GLENN: You think that was too far?

STU: Ever.

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

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.
