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

GLENN: You know what's evil, I mean seriously evil, I mean like, boy, I'm evil. Those charter schools. Man, those things are evil. And school vouchers and private schools. I'm Beelzebub. I mean, I don't -- I can't tell the difference between the devil and the principal of a private school. I really can't. Anything that takes away power from the teachers unions, takes away from accountability and the glorious state to educate the children the way Washington sees fit, it's just, it has to be destroyed. Now, George W. Bush was far from a free market guy when it came to education. No child left behind stressed accountability, which is good, but still it put the federal government's hands deeper into education, not so good. But if you're Barack Obama, before you can really turn the wheel, you'll first have to convince them that the current school system is a failure. Most people think it is anyway. From factcheck.org. Last year George W. Bush touted U.S. gains in education saying that our fourth and eighth graders achieved the highest scores on record. He bragged that African-Americans and Hispanic students posted all-time highs. Well, last week Obama said those eighth graders weren't so great at math after all. He claimed that they had fallen to ninth place in the world and he bemoaned a high school dropout rate that had tripled over three decades. What a difference a year makes. So which one is it? Is it improving or is it disastrous? The high school dropout rate hasn't tripled in the past 30 years as Obama has claimed. According to the Department of Education, it has actually only declined by a third. Oh. Eighth grade math scores haven't fallen to ninth place compared to other countries. U.S. scores have claimed to that ranking from as low as 28th place in 1995. Holy cow. Obama also has set a goal of having the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020. But in terms of bachelors degrees, we're nearly there. The U.S. is only second to Norway in the percentage of adults 2 5-64 with a four-year degree and trails by just 1 percentage point. How many people are living in Norway? So you make second place by 1% sound horrible. Confuse the meaning of fallen and climbed and then confuse the meaning of tripled and fallen by a third. But you can see how he's messed up. Tripled in 30 years and fallen by a third. It has too many 3s in it. And after all, we're not very good at math, you know. It's confusing. Too bad no child left behind wasn't around when Barack was growing up. Maybe he would be able to figure out all these confusing numbers.

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.

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?

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.
