VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: Yes, that's right, comrade. The most difficult problem in the fight against terrorism is, of course, what? Education, right? Biggest reason so many young people in the Middle East are out in the front lines willing to blow themselves up is because either the lack of education or that Hamas is educating the kids in the school. "Well, we never have that problem here." I mean, they just don't know the difference between the crap that they're being fed by some nut job terrorist in their schools and the truth, so the battle of socialism is raging here in America and they are targeting our youth. Most people don't even know it. Don't believe me? Try this on for size. Students at a New Jersey elementary school just got a lesson in climate change and solar power from a solar panel manufacturer. Hmmm, I don't know if anybody's noticing the conflict of interest here, but it kind of sticks out at me. How would the school have reacted if I came in and pitched them with this one: Yeah, I'd like to bring in a representative from my company to talk about how our dependence on foreign oil is too high." Well, that sounds really great. "Yeah, and one way to reduce it is for our company to be allowed to start drilling here at home." "Well, what's your company?" "ExxonMobil. So is this a go? Because I've got to get back into my big Cadillac with the horns on the front."

Employees of the Sharp Electronics Corporation at Joyce Kilmer Elementary School in New Jersey recently were brought in to teach a lesson on climate change and renewable energy. The cartoon image of an ailing Earth with a thermometer sticking out of its mouth was the opening slide in their presentation. Quote: It turns out that the temperature of the Earth is actually rising, end quote. Really? How about that. Have you looked at a thermometer this year? I'm sorry, that's -- "You can't do that one day, one year." You're right. Let's look at it the last 10 years. Sharp began its solar academy program in the United States in October 2008. Wow, October. October, November -- whoa, right before Barack Obama was elected as president. "The initiative is based on a similar program in Japan that since 2007 has been presented at 700 schools and 50,000 students." Wow, 50,000 students just in Japan in 12 months. "There's a war raging, the war of ideas, and common sense is losing. It makes business sense," according to Stuart Mitchell, the chief strategy officer for Sharp, who started the American version of the program. Quote: The big picture is you really want to tie your focus on social responsibility as a company into your business models. Quoting: The more that students learn about climate change and the more they learn about the importance of renewable energy, it ties back to feeding into our business model of being in the solar business. Does anybody have a problem with this one? That's not community service. That's indoctrination, jack. But nice job of disguising it, you know, with the subtleness of a bad boon and the stealth of an elephant.

The renewable energy portion of the presentation mentions several technologies including hydro, wind and ocean power, but solar panels quickly become the focus. What a strange coincidence. The focus just somehow shifts to solar energy. Just part of the responsibility tying in with the business, right? I mean, that's the responsible thing to do. Students watched a short video about how solar panels work and then tried a hands-on activity in which they discovered how much work is required to power a 60-watt light bulb with hand cranks compared with using a small solar panel.

When's the last time you had to crank up the light bulbs for your house? "At the end of the class the students were given workbooks and a Sharp brand solar-powered calculator to take home with them." Wow, if solar power can power a calculator, surely it could power the world's biggest economy. Don Chiossi, another fifth grade science teacher, also gave the program two big thumbs-up. "We cover all forms of energy in our classroom but to have people come in from the community and talk about it helps even more." Plus -- quoting -- plus, the kids love calculators. Oh, well, the kids love calculators. Oh, let's not pay any attention to what's going on here. The kids love calculators.

"The students for their part did seem to enjoy the class, though they weren't without questions for the Sharp team." Quote, one student asked, "If you use only solar power, what would you use at nighttime?" See? At the end, at the end we always try to leave you with just a little hope.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

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."
