Glenn Beck: Spotlight on (idiot) scientists

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We'll restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama for everything science.

GLENN: That's right. You know, this program has won all kinds of awards and medals and everything, statues, and we just, we were just presented the Swedish black hole award, which was great, but it sucked all the presenters right into the award which was kind of tragic. You would think the scientists would have figured that one out. But let's not get bogged down in those facts. You know, most people, we do this segment because most people who listen are, you know, conservative or common sense and they don't understand all this crazy science thing that Obama was talking about. So every day at this time we'll help the President fix science back into her rightful place.

For example, there are too many Canadian geese in states like Connecticut. Wait a minute, hang on just a second. Canadian geese, aren't those the ones that were sucked into that airplane just -- let's not get sidetracked on that. Let's just stay to the facts. Too many Canadian geese in states like Connecticut. Estimates are -- scientific estimates -- 40,000 Canadian geese in the state, primarily in the Southwestern region, which would be where all the airports are. They have the perfect combination of foraging food, nesting and covering habitat in the state. They also don't have many natural predators left in Connecticut. This is where science steps in and creates a predator. Scientists are now recommending, well, not just murdering the geese. I mean, that's what simple minded people -- you and I, we just go grab a shotgun. Let's go have some geese! No, it's, we need science to help us on that. So is the science-approved method of controlling the geese population in the state of Connecticut? Local environmental activists are urging local residents, especially those with waterfront property, to do their part in controlling the geese population through geese family planning, quote/unquote. Not only is family planning an economic stimulus we learned last week from President Obama, it's also the right way to control geese. How are you to help out with family planning of geese? No, no, Mr. Unscientific, not little tiny geese condoms but here's what you need to do. According to science... to reduce their long-term growth rate, you need to locate their nests and oil their eggs. This is what they are asking now in the State of Connecticut for citizens to do, especially those with waterfront property. You locate their nests and oil their eggs. How do you oil geese eggs? One, register with the Fish and Wildlife Service; two, get permission of any private property owners; three, get an approved scientist. I think we have to use the Yellow Pages for that one. Four, bring a dog to scare away the geese; five, try the float test. If an egg submerged in water sinks, it means it's been incubated for less than 13 days and the chick has not matured. So the egg is allowed to be oiled. If the egg floats -- I think then what's inside of the egg is a witch and you have to burn it at the stake. Oh, no, I'm sorry! Sorry, that was just me, the crazy unscientific conservative figuring, there goes my nonscience again. The real answer, of course, is forced geese abortion. How? You bring a spray bottle filled with corn oil. Then you spray it all over the egg. Remember, quoting, it only takes a small amount of oil to prevent the gases from diffusing through the pores of the egg which will cause the embryo to die of asphyxiation. Once you've murdered the embryo -- I'm sorry, not being scientific again. Once you have frozen the embryo to death, you will officially be a scientist!

VOICE: You've been listening to Spotlight on Science, exclusively heard on the Glenn Beck program. America's number one source for science and science-related items.

GLENN: Man, I am so glad, I am so glad that we are finally going to fix science back in her rightful place. Thank you, President Obama.

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.
