Glenn Beck: Socialism - Stimulus saves day?


America's March to Socialism: Why we're one step closer to giant missile parades

is now available as an audio book...

GLENN: Well, back on March 6th, the media was all atwitter from the plethora of success stories resulting from President Obama's $787 billion stimulus package. President Obama proclaimed jobs all across Ohio will now be saved because of this recovery plan. The Huffington Post dutifully followed their savior's lead. Obama dressed as Columbus police recruits saved by stimulus. According to the Huffington Post, Dateline Washington. President Barack Obama can point at at least 25 jobs saved in Ohio's capital. Obama traveled to Columbus to speak at the graduation ceremony for 25 police recruits who owe their jobs to the economic recovery bill he signed into law just less than three weeks ago. Obama also said this of the stimulus, said it includes aid to state and local governments to prevent firefighters and police recruits, recruits like the ones in Columbus, Ohio who were told that instead of being sworn in as officers, they would be let go. Well, it's been 100 days since the signing of the stimulus package. You know, the one they had to signed or else America would die. Well, what happened since then? Since the cameras were turned off and the president flew home and nobody's watching Columbus, Ohio. Well, I shouldn't say no one is watching Columbus, Ohio. We are. Has there been a flood of success stories like Columbus? Jeez, what's happened? Unemployment in January, 7.5, February 8.1. March 8.5. April, 8.9. Good thing we passed that stimulus package. America would have really been struggling, huh? How are things going in Columbus, Ohio with those new officers that are on the street? Have we thanked President Obama for their jobs? The Columbus dispatch says if voters turn down a proposed income tax hike in August, nearly 300 police officers will lose their job. The 25 new officers who shook the president's hand will be among the first to go. Wait a minute. So is that how the stimulus works? You dump billions of taxpayer dollars into the states to save them but it still doesn't work unless local taxes are also jacked up? I mean, I thought the stimulus funds were paying for those jobs. Why does Ohio need another tax hike to pay for the police officers that the stimulus funds just paid for? Well, no matter what, President Obama got his photo op that day with the police officers which included this touching moment, looking at the graduates receiving their diplomas, Obama said, quote, this economy needs your employment to keep it running. I look into their eyes and I see their badges today and I know we did the right thing, end quote. No word on if Obama's planning on apologizing to the officers and to America for wasting taxpayers' funds on something that the City of Columbus was going to be forced to pay for and should be paying for itself anyway. And wasting our money on something Press Secretary Robert Gibbs now admits "Is only temporary."

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.

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.

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

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
