GLENN: Comrade! Comrade!

STU: Yes, comrade!

GLENN: Good news from the Western front!

STU: Oh, what is it, comrade Glenn?

GLENN: Charlie Rangel.

STU: I love Charlie Rangel.

GLENN: He's bringing us closer and closer to our dreams of a socialist nation!

STU: A socialist Republic, Glenn.

GLENN: We have -- do we have Stephen Moore on yet? Stephen Moore, he's one of the brightest economic guys. He was for -- he started -- oh, what's it?

STU: Club For Growth?

GLENN: Club For Growth.

STU: Oh, those evil, evil people at Club For Growth, comrade.

GLENN: You know, if we could just stop the growth of this nation, we would be set, wouldn't we? Be great. I love these environmentalists who are like, yeah, and if we could just go back to candlepower, we would be set! Oh, I don't know about you, but those damn refrigerators, oh, they're such a pain in the neck.

STU: We need state-run and created refrigerators that will keep everything at a cool 61.

GLENN: Well, if it's like 58 outside.

STU: Right. And, you know, the good thing is --

GLENN: If you are in Arizona, it will always be like 110 in your refrigerator but that milk be sweet, man.

STU: Comrade, that's not a problem in Siberia.

GLENN: That's right! And if you like your milk cold, maybe that's where we should send you, to Siberia!

Hang on. Stop the music for a second. Stu, we need to find a Siberia. If we're going to do comrade updates, news from the Western front, we've got to have a Siberia that we could send people to.

STU: Well, we've got -- Alaska's cold but it's too pretty to be Siberia.

GLENN: I'm thinking more of Washington D.C.


STU: Detroit would be perfect.

GLENN: It would be great, wouldn't it?

STU: Oh, yes.

GLENN: You could warm your hands with the burning buildings and stuff.

STU: It's getting about as empty as Siberia is, too.

GLENN: It's great. And it's cold there. Is it cold there once in a while?

STU: It is cold there.

GLENN: It's in Michigan, right?

STU: I believe it is still in Michigan.

GLENN: It's still in Michigan.

STU: That's fantastic. You are a geography professional.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Shall we make Detroit?

STU: We could but the problem here is that --

GLENN: Are there any good places in Detroit?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Not in Detroit. No, there's not. There's not a good place in Detroit.

STU: I was just in Detroit. It's very nice.

GLENN: You were at the airport. You know why? Because people are happy because they're leaving Detroit.

STU: Actually, Glenn, the Detroit airport is interesting because one side of it is called by the residents "Moscow," the Moscow airport because one side of it is brand-new and perfect and the other side of it is just this like, it was, like, built by the Soviet Union in 1950. So you get to see the two sides of --

GLENN: Nothing better.

STU: And there's nothing better than that.

GLENN: Nothing better than that. Cold concrete, I love that. It's beautiful, comrade.

Oh, wait. We have one more comrade update.

STU: Comrade Glenn!

GLENN: Yes, comrade!

STU: Glenn, all around this world people are buying Che Guevara T-shirts and we love that, comrade.

GLENN: You know what's great about Che Guevara is he's, like, personally responsible for executing 50 people with his own hands.

STU: At least.

GLENN: Well, I mean the ones we know positively happened in the middle of the night.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: You know in that prison, that Lynne Stewart would tell you he had to have.

STU: He had to have that, comrade.

GLENN: He had to have people that were dissenting. It's like Stalin. Okay, so 50 million people disagreed. What are you going to do?

STU: None of them disagree now. None of them disagree now.

GLENN: None of them. They are all in agreeance now.

STU: Well, the one thing we have to fix about those T-shirts is they apparently are charging people a price for them and getting a profit, which we immediate to make sure that stops right away, comrade. But there is a little bit more going on. There is an auction which I -- I hope it all goes to the state.

GLENN: An auction?

STU: Yes. $100,000 is the starting bid for a 3-inch lock of hair from Che Guevara.

GLENN: Nice. What the hell is wrong with us? What the hell is wrong with us?

STU: You know no communist can have enough money to win the auction.

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute! If I had a lock of his hair, maybe I could, I don't know, put it in a Petri dish with some bleach or something and have it break down so I could make some new little baby Ches.

STU: Like a communist Jurassic park?

GLENN: Hey, wait a minute. I just thought of something. If I was making babe Ches and I'm thinking Che as in plural, are those those chairs that you sit out -- you sit on the chaise? Is that what it's from? Because if that's what he's responsible for, I kind of like him.

STU: Quote him.

GLENN: I say we should make babe Ches. Think of how many -- think about how many different lines we could have of merchandise if we could just make more Ches.

STU: And these Ches unfortunately will eventually kill 50 of your family members.


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?
