Glenn Beck: Pelosi praises illegal immigrants

GLENN: Rick Oltman is with us. Now, Rick Oltman is the guy. You've seen this Nancy Pelosi video probably on the Internet several times and the video was taken by Rick Oltman. And Rick, what do you do for a living?

OLTMAN: I'm the national media director for Californians For Population Stabilization. Our concerns about immigration. And that's what brought me to the church that night to hear Representative Gutierrez and hopefully to hear what Representative the Speaker of the House Pelosi had to say and we've all heard it, haven't we?

GLENN: You seem angry.

OLTMAN: I think it's bad enough, Glenn, to have congressmen going around the country pandering to illegal aliens, trying to overturn the laws, certainly not protecting jobs for American workers. But when a speaker of the house who is second in line to succession to the president and a national political figure starts pandering to illegal aliens and telling them that they are very patriotic because they are taking responsibility for our country's future, I think that's something everybody ought to hear.

GLENN: In fact, can we play just a little bit of this tape? This is very hard to understand without the subtitles. So Stu, can you just play -- can we play a little bit of this, Dan? Just, the key moment here.

DAN: Sure.

GLENN: And then, Rick, you tell us what she was talking about.

OLTMAN: Right.

(AUDIO CLIP PLAYS)

GLENN: We're here on a Saturday night because you want to take responsibility for our country's future and that makes you very, very patriotic.

OLTMAN: That's it. That's what she said.

GLENN: What was the whole point behind this meeting?

OLTMAN: Congressman Gutierrez from Chicago is on a 17 city tour around the country with a message that we need to "End the raids." They call them raids. We call them legitimate immigration enforcement in the workplace. And what I think it is is designed to manufacture victims so that they can go to President Obama and say, "We need to end the work site enforcement." He had been -- this happened on March 7th. He had been in Ontario, California that morning. He came to San Francisco that night. And this is really an assault on the American worker that's been going on for a couple of years. There's processes in place to make sure that jobs should go only to American workers which we call either American citizens, or legal immigrants with a work visa. But a couple of years ago when Department of Homeland Security wanted to send out 148,000 letters to employers talking about how 8 million Social Security numbers didn't match up, good indication that they! are probably illegal aliens, got stalled in the courts. There's a computer-verifying system called e-verify which should be permanent and mandatory which should allow every employer in the country to know that they are hiring only American workers, only gets extended for very short periods of time. It's only been extended for another six months and it certainly isn't mandatory. And now this, where they are saying outright we're going to end the workplace enforcement, at a time when we've got 12 million unemployed Americans, probably somewhere between 25 and 30 million illegal aliens in the country, at least eight million of them working here illegally and yet congress congressional members are going around the country saying we're going to end this kind of enforcement. To me it's just unbelievable that at this time of economic chaos and unemployment we have elected officials including the Speaker of the House saying we're going to end any protection for American workers in! the workplace.

GLENN: Here's Luis Gutierrez. He is the congressman and he wrote this letter. It's on, you paid for the stamps, you paid for the letterhead, you paid for the ink, you paid for the time to get this out. Congress of the United States, the U.S. House of Representatives, dear member of the community, thank you for coming to our urgent community meeting today. I appreciate you attending this important event to address the impact on our broken immigration system that it has on families and the hardship that it is causing U.S. citizens. I also want you to know that all the information that you have shared with us in writing today regarding yourself and family including your name, address, phone number and other relevant information is strictly confidential and will not be shared with any government agency.

How are they spending our money to collect information that is not going to be shared with government agencies?

OLTMAN: That's a good question. And the other question is who is paying for this 17 city tour? Who is paying for the airfare and the staff and all of that that goes with it? Here's what they are doing. They are having these meetings in churches, they are having the anchor babies, the children who are American citizens of illegal aliens stand up and testify about how their parent was deported or how they are afraid their parents are going to be deported, and what I think is happening is they are besieging people to fill out these petitions that talks about a loved one who might be deported and then they are going to make a pile of petitions five feet high or ten feet high. The volume is what will matter. And they are going to manufacture all these victims and then they will go to the president and say, well, you won't really be helping illegal aliens. What you'll be doing is helping American citizens. To me it's like going back to the liberal playbook, Chapter! 1, it's about the children, it's about the victims and I think that's what this whole thing is about.

GLENN: Okay. So Rick, it will only meet with a bunch of anger here. What do people do?

OLTMAN: I don't think that's possible. I think the best thing to do --

GLENN: I can have another cupcake. I got off the plane last night here in Orlando, Florida, and somebody actually greeted my plane with M&Ms and they said, "I know it's been a bad news day, Glenn, we thought you wanted some M&Ms.

OLTMAN: That's service. That's service.

GLENN: God bless them. Thank you at the airport. God bless you guys.

OLTMAN: What I suggest -- that's service for you. The first thing I would suggest is please go our website at capsweb.org and watch the video that was on Fox News and so you can see for yourself and you can read what she said.

GLENN: Wait, wait. Was this not on the other networks?

OLTMAN: This was an exclusive for Fox News. I gave the tape to William La Jeunesse at Fox News and to my knowledge nobody else has run it.

GLENN: Unbelievable. Thank you very much.

 

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.

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

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."

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.
