Reviews of Glenn Beck's Common Sense Comedy Tour

Glenn is expecting liberals to hate the upcoming Glenn Beck Common Sense Comedy Tour and write scathing reviews of it. So in an effort to be helpful Glenn has invited his listeners to do their job for them, by writing their own version of a liberal's review of the show before it even hits the stage.

Here's a sampling of what we've received so far (and what you can expect to see in liberal blogs in the coming days)....


Imagine that the New Testament is being written in the first decade of the twenty-first century, the government is Satan, and the Messiah is a forty something Mormon who looks like he turned two fish into five thousand and then ate them all and you will begin to understand what it is like to be at the Glen Beck Common Sense Comedy Tour.

Beck, who has suggested that his Comedy Tour shows him to be an out of the box conservative unafraid to mix politics and humor, fails miserably at his hackneyed attempts to be funny and succeeds only in his tired regurgitations of the same radical conservative talking points readily available from any of his like minded colleagues. If you go to laugh AT him however, instead if at his material, then the sight of his pallid, sweat drenched figure wallowing laboriously around the stage is bound to elicit at least one hearty chuckle.

Individuals with inquiring minds, truly interested in learning, would be better served by spending twenty minutes surfing random YouTube videos, as watching a monkey ******* into its own mouth is both more funny, and more educational than watching Beck’s banal ranting. The only thing more depressing than watching Beck huff and puff under the stresses of his own weight is the realization that you are likely sitting amongst a pool of Beck’s kool-aid drinking disciples who are clearly laughing continuously to hide the fact that they have no idea what’s going on. As the night wears on, Beck’s angry, conspiracy filled and transparently racist proselytizing will leave you praying only for the appearance of the twenty-first century Judas.

As Glenn stood on stage, crying from the stink of his dumb, white, racist jokes, his pasty skin glistened as the sweat dripped thicker than his sarcasm. I'm starting to believe there are indeed conspiracies, because somehow his unfunny routine drew crowds of right-wing lemmings, each of whom robotically guffawed at the typical Republican talking points. The only thing worse than his act was his hair. Shock jock by trade, entertainer by accident, Glenn gives crazy people a bad name. Next time President Obama flubs a joke, he will compare it to Glenn's routine instead of the Special Olympics. Sadly, I don't even think ACORN workers could have bribed a crowd to enjoy his show. I give this act two thumbs down. I would have rated in terms of stars, but that would just encourage this mental case's patriotism.

 My 4 year old daughter has mastered the art of what my wife calls "crocodile tears". Basically she turns on the tears so people will feel sorry for her and give her the attention she so badly desires.

Glenn Beck has mastered that art as well. This man can turn on the tears quicker than any grown man (or woman) that I have ever seen. My daughter could actually take lessons from him.

You have to realize, however, that if Becks' tears were real, he would have plenty to cry about. His beloved Republican Party is collapsing all around him and the only thing he has to hold on to are tired out talking points that amount to a lifeboat with Swiss cheese for a hull.

To understand how Beck succeeds at what he does, and he is no doubt successful, you have to look at who his audience is.

Predominantly white elitists who still believe they are the master race and Affirmative Action has no place in our society. These are angry people, make no mistake about it. They got their clocks cleaned in the last election so now they just hold tea parties and watch cry babies in movie theaters.

Glenn Beck is not funny but he is funny to watch. His appearance alone is enough to make you chuckle. HD TV is his worst enemy. Some faces were made for radio, Glenn's is one of those.

So if you can stand a couple hours of conspiracy theories and Armageddon predictions I suppose you can join the lemmings and see what the fat man has to say. Write to me and tell me how many different shades of red he turned.

Me? I'll stay home. I have enough of a loudmouth to put up with there.

And she doesn't even cry as much!

Journalist Beck's Racist Remarks go too Far, Again.

It apparently wasn't enough for radio and television talk show host Glenn Beck to join the racists of America for his Tax Day Tea Parties, like his Fox News colleges. No, he is visiting various cities in America over the next weeks to continue spreading his Anti-American rhetoric. The difference-this time the racists have PAID to hear it.

In Beck's Common Sense Comedy Tour, the audience laughed, they cried (though not nearly as much as the "talent",) and then suited up in their white robes. Ok, so maybe the latter of the three didn't happen, but Glenn's Anti-Obama rhetoric wasn't exactly the comedy the title promised us. Hearing that he wanted old paralyzed minority grandmothers to die, rather than let Obama help the sick of the nation sickened me. Hearing the crowd laugh and cheer over the remark nearly put me in cardiac arrest.

And then we have the second portion of the show. Our star decided it would be a good idea to portray a founding father, screaming that's he's "Mad as Hell" that our president would want to have a cleaner earth, help the poor, and heal the sick.

In short, saying that this crybaby isn't worth the time or money doesn't quite cut it. I hope the Fox News recovering alcoholic falls off the wagon, and his liver fails. That's comedy we all can believe in.

He's at it again. The loudmouth fatty spewing his hate speech to a bunch of know nothing inbred hicks who obviously wouldn't know real entertainment if it came up and knock the one remaining tooth out of their stupid heads.

Yes I'm talking about Glen Beck. His Common Sense Comedy Tour has hit the road....and the wall. A word to Beck: Comedy is supposed to be funny. The only thing funny about the show was Beck's appearance. That is if you think it's funny watching a pasty, chubby man waddle across the stage, all the while screaming racist, sexists rants to the imbeciles in the crowd.

One minute he'll be squawking about the supposed harm done by one of our greatest presidents, Woodrow Wilson, the next he'll be screaming his fat sweating face off about the evils of same sex marriage and how the country is doomed to socialism.

While I have never been to a Republican or KKK gathering, I think I can now say that I came as close to one as I ever want to be. I was truly shocked to see how easily the mob was whipped into a frenzy by Mr. Beck.

He pulled no punches as he provoked the lemmings into an enraged mob with his lies about Obama and the good people in his administration. I could have sworn I smelled freshly cut onions as Beck shifted gears to the "emotional" part of his act. Cry me a river Mr. Beck. When you run out of onions there are always nose hairs. If you can find them under the folds of your fat face.

I could go on, but I have wasted enough time on this sorry excuse for entertainment. Use your common sense and miss this wreck of a show.

Glenn Beck has failed in yet another brazen attempt to turn thinly veiled right-wing hate speech into comedy.

I had the misfortune of sitting through Beck’s “Common Sense Comedy Tour” last night and, throughout the two-hour snooze fest, there was little “common sense” or “comedy” to be found. I suppose in some sick way, Beck’s performance could be considered entertaining, as watching a festively plump madman ramble on about his self-destructive obsession with the ideas of rich, dead, white people far removed from relevance demands a morbid fascination, similar to a grisly car crash or watching the GOP’s approval ratings fall further through the floor. Regardless, aside from the mere spectacle of the unmitigated disaster occurring on stage, Beck left his audience wanting less and less as the evening went on.

Of those that “appeared” to enjoy the performance, their ilk was predictable: illiterate, intellectually bankrupt bigots who displayed no shame in their brash, ebullient echoing of Beck’s point of view, like puppets awaiting the next command from their master. To those of us in the audience enlightened enough to see through the phony façade of care and passion the blubbering Beck poorly attempted to convey, the brainwashing was clear. His fawning and slobbering over the Constitution’s original intent and idiotic rambling about how an over two-hundred year old document, written when people still wore powdered wigs, is somehow relevant today baffle the mind. Beck, it seems, does not appreciate progress and would rather we revert to a more hateful, evil time when his kind went unopposed and thrived through the pain and suffering of the poor and downtrodden.

If you’ve run out of old George W. Bush speeches on your TiVo and are looking for a quick, straight-off-the-GOP-teleprompter “fix” with a little history, politics of old and racism mixed in, then this pitiful performance is for you. For those of you actually capable of rational thought, watching this hatemonger spew propaganda at you for hours in the hope of eliciting some weak chuckles is (and I’m being polite) an epic, colossal waste of time. Avoid at all costs.

As if a nationally syndicated radio show, and prime billing on right-wing extremist Fox News Channel isn't a big enough platform for him, political commentator Glen Beck takes his 3-ring circus act on the road. As with the "tea parties" another one of Beck's pet projects, lines to get in to see these shows were minimal at best. And you can probably imagine the class of people that were standing in these short lines.

I got a chance to speak to some of these primarily white, republican, Obama haters. One gentleman I spoke with wouldn't even get out of his camouflage hunting chair with beer can holders to answer my questions. His attention was consumed by his 6 children. I could tell that his answers wouldn't be the right ones, judging by his sleeveless "Don't tread on me" t-shirt, and countless NRA tattoos.

Now onto the show itself.

Funny? Not more than the type of person there to see it. Beck attempted a few jokes and observations about our current administration, ranging from stimulus packages to national security concerns. The crowd of racist rednecks applauded loudly as the hideously overweight Beck spouted articles from the Constitution, and again later when he talked about the Founding fathers and Bill of Rights.

The part that had me more puzzled than any of the other social blunders witnessed was the fact that people actually bought tickets the see this sweaty, festering, folly of a man get up and talk about ideas that are obsolete, and the bulk of our progressive nation just isn't interested in any more.

The night had finally drawn to a tortured close, and I was anxious to get out of there. I ran to catch my plane, as it jetted me off to my times square office. I tried to catch a little shut-eye, but every time I closed them, all I could see were the commoners who make up this "armpit of America". Clinging to their guns and religion. And a very sorry attempt at the fine art of comedy, who is Glen Beck.

In a classic display of sweat, nose-hair-pulling tears, and dollar store GOP pride, Glenn Beck recently premiered his 2009 Common Sense Comedy “Show”. Let’s be honest - we knew what to expect. From the moment Beck - standing on stage in all of the glory of his white power pride and fishing line toupee - opened his mouth (And his pasty, clammy pores), there was no stopping the sopping wet Fox News spokesman. Eager to satisfy the crowd of gun-toting rednecks lounged about the theater, Beck sprayed his usual cut ‘n’ paste Republican propaganda. He spared no time before enthusiastically spewing his hatred for African Americans, undocumented workers, and environmentalists all about the room, throwing in a few conspiracy theories about health care and fluorescent light bulbs - are the Socialist aliens here yet, Glenn?

In all frankness, though, putting Beck’s crazy conspiracy theories and founding fathers fetish aside, the show itself is meaningless—really, truly meaningless. The fact of the matter is that every time this long-winded, sobby gasbag gets up on stage, the hole in the ozone layer gets bigger. The rampant, hate-mongering humor shooting from his flabby, flapping lips is stale at best, and his attempts at political sobriety fail epically to jump over the ‘90’s DJ hurtle. The fact that he charges his simpleton militia followers money for the privilege of hearing the his earsplitting recruiting speech is shocking. Glenn Beck is nothing more than a bitter white man projecting his misery about his albino locks, over-sized perspiration glands, and excess body fat onto innocent minority groups. No one should be subjected to this insane, screaming lump, or the traveling right-wing circus troupe he calls his show.

Beck is a lot of things, but a funny, humane, non-clammy entertainer, does not a delirious, bawling, half-bald radio host make. Face it, Glenn: no sane, levelheaded, humane person wants to pay money to see a hot dog imitate Rush Limbaugh for two hours.

I was pulled away from my desk putting together the obituary for tomorrow's run when I was informed I had once again drawn the short straw, and assigned to cover for one more agonizing time Glenn Beck's "Common Sense Tour."

Not surprising this year the only thing that changed was the title. It was the same old Republican Spin Rubbish.

The audience was the same Redneck, Hay Seed group as usual straight out of Hew Haw. If Glenn had a punch line (which I doubt) you could not hear due to the knee slapping from the local yokals.

Oh yes he laughed, he cried, he sweated lots, and combined with slobber the stage hand he had hired came to mop the floor when the knee slapping died down.

Take my advice and critique, stay home and watch the paint dry, that is more entertaining.

 Last night, radio personality and Fox News pundit Glenn Beck presented his "Common Sense Comedy Tour." Predictably, Beck's tired recounting of the conservative Republican litany is neither common sense nor comedy.

For two long hours, the pudgy Beck presented his views about life and government with an audience consisting primarily of his core listeners, many of whom already share his views on topics such as gun ownership and the ill-conceived Tea Parties. Well, not exactly presented. The manic Beck alternately screamed and blubbered, working the crowd into a wild frenzy hanging on his every word, who ended the evening with a standing ovation for their sweaty, rotund "messiah." Beck continually railed against the current administration and its policies, offering nothing but half-baked ideas in defense of his radical theories of government and the economy. And, while he told his doe-eyed devotees to "get the facts and make up your own mind," it was obvious he fully expects them to do neither and to take everything he says at face value.

If you are looking for a show with intelligence and wit, you are certain to be disappointed with Beck's tawdry three-ring circus.

Glenn Beck is at it again. I recently attended Beck's so called comedy show. At least that's what it was billed as. For those of you who have blissfully never heard of Glenn Beck, he is "faux" news latest GOP shill and host of a radio show. Beck is known for psychotically slipping in and out of weird voices, sweating profusely and attempting to grow goatees that are invisible on his pasty skin.

His stage show is like a GOP political ad. He rants against Pres Obama with thinly veiled racist jabs. His audience looks like they would be more at home at a Klan rally. You almost expect tea bagging to spontaneously break out as he whips the fat white racists into a frenzy.

I personally found nothing funny, but the clearly 100% republican lemming audience seems to love it. As Glenn raps up his monotonously boring show he uses his coup de gras....crying on command. I'm sure i saw him pull out a nose hair just before the water works began. In summation, if you want to be bored to sleep, relieve the GOP/KKK glory days check it out. If you have any decency demand this shock jock dangerous lunatic be forced off the air and into counseling!

Imagine being transported to Thomas Paine's Colonial America. You walk down the dusty streets only to be accosted by a fat, pasty skined, town-"cryer"(and I do mean cryer) who also turns out to be the village idiot. He yammers on and on in and endless monologue about the end of the world. As people pass by oblivious to this madman's loud rantings he comes up to you, apparently because you made eye contact. Never make eye contact! What do you do? Normally such lunatics that you meet in the street can be ignored and you can find your way to the nearest tavern. Unfortunately this is not possible with Glenn Beck and his Common Sense Tour or should I say his Non-Sense Tour.

If your idea of a good time is listening to a hackneyed right-wing retelling of a pamphlet that's over 200 years old this "comedy" tour is for you. As for me I'll save my tuppence and head for the tavern.

Last night I had the misfortune of seeing Glenn Beck's "Common Sense Comedy Tour". Believe me, I use the word "comedy" very lightly. There was very little of either "common sense" or "comedy" during the 2 1/2 hour misery that was Glenn Beck.

For those of you who don't know Glenn Beck, he is a right-wing nut job who has somehow managed to become the number 2 Republican party shill, right behind Rush Limbaugh. He has a nationally syndicated radio talk show in the a.m. and an afternoon "news" show on the Republican mouthpiece, Fox News Channel. Believe me, this man is not the journalist he claims to be. He is much more like a shock jock who tries, and fails miserably, to entertain.

Imagine, if you can, an over-the-hill, paunchy, pasty, sweaty, effeminate fat man, constantly on the verge of tears (or so he wants us to think), trying his hardest to be funny. It was embarrassing to watch. Not only was he unfunny, he seems to have a hard time telling the truth. All he had to rant about were the typical GOP talking points. The audience, however, like lemmings being led to the sea, were eating it up. That speaks volumes to the mentality of these racist, mentally deficient dimwits.

In the future, when trying to extract information from "terrorists", the CIA should forego the waterboarding and go straight to the real torture. Make them watch Glenn Beck's "Common Sense Comedy Tour". They will be talking in no time.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know youtu.be


Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."

Nancy Pelosi and her growing ensemble of radical leftists are making sure that 2021 will be just as terrible as 2020 — terrible, and forcefully gender-neutral. The 117th Congress convened on Sunday, and on Monday, they shifted the goalposts by approving a 45-pages rules package, "H. Res 7," in a 217 to 206 vote. The Rules Package is the brainchild of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA).

Yesterday, in a speech to the House, Republican Rep. Tom Cole described the proposals as "some of the harshest and most cynical that I've experienced during my time in Congress." Congressman Steve Scalise accurately called it a "Soviet-Style rules package. ... designed to take away the voice of 48% of this chamber."

Some of the many wild rule changes include a continuation of proxy voting during the coronavirus pandemic, a ban on lawmakers convicted of certain crimes from visiting the House floor, and of course what would Democrats be without their hatred for Donald Trump? With the rule changes, they've found a way to attack Trump even after he's left office. They've added provisions that allow them to send subpoenas to former Presidents, former VPs, and former White House staff long after their administration has left the White House.

They've added provisions that allow them to send subpoenas to former Presidents, former VPs, and former White House...

Pelosi called the plan a "visionary rules package" which "reflects the values of her diverse Democratic majority," framing the proposal as a departure from ignorance, with that elitist under-handed way of condescending to non-woke Americans. She called them "future-focused proposals," as if conservatives and Republicans aren't worried about the future. Democrats honestly believe this. Believe that we pray to God for the destruction of the future, whatever it means. Although, Democrats are certainly not the authority on prayer: They can't even say one without jamming it full of woke inanity. And "inanity" is the word for it. Because the Democrats have devolved into utter nonsense.

In the news cycle, stories get buried. It feels like we're all constantly putting out fires. Politicians love this: Just about every controversy vanishes quickly. Shady legislation goes unnoticed. The mainstream media isn't going to report on this, not with any semblance of honesty or critical thought. As always, they're more interested in attacking Donald Trump. So it's up to us to ask, "Wait a minute, you're doing what now?"

You may be thinking, "How do the rules for the House of Representatives affect me?" Because you can tell a lot about a person by the way they run their house, or in this case their workplace. If this is how they want to conduct their workplace, I'm terrified to see how they'll run the country. Because, even though it will require ethical breaches and severe overreach, that's exactly what they're about to do, including a rule that keeps the House Minority from amending legislation on the floor.

In true leftist fashion, Democrats have projected their own injustices on Republicans. Like how the bill refers to the new rules as "sweeping ethics reforms," the implication being that there were ethical violations that demanded reforming.

Yesterday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said it best, delivered a scathing rebuke of House Democrats. I recommend watching the whole thing. In particular, he took umbrage with the way the rules violate our freedom of speech, the most important right that we have as Americans.

He's right: This hatred for free speech began in academia. Specifically, from the Marxist radicals who promote and adhere to Critical Theory. We conservatives have spent so much time on Critical Race Theory, but we're missing the bigger picture. Critical Race Theory is just a wart on the looming monster known as Critical Theory. If you think the riots were bad, if you thought sports had become overrun by woke politics, if you thought colleges were bad already — you better get ready for the ideological tidal wave, because it's so about to be much worse. The whole thing is Critical Theory gone wild. I'll tell you why in a moment. First, let's look through the details.

Gender

The resolution aims to "make this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history," and opens by formally establishing the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. An entire department within the lower house of Congress devoted to bringing Critical Theory to life."Inclusion and diversity," two concepts entrenched in Critical Theory inanity. The left would call them "dog whistles," seemingly innocuous words that signal something evil. Apparently, inclusion and diversity are the reason House Democrats felt the need to change the name of the Office of the Whistleblower Ombudsman, "to the gender-neutral Office of the Whistleblower Ombuds."

Then they really lose it in subsection e: "Gender-Inclusive Language." This section "modernizes the use of pronouns, familial relationship terminology, and other references to gender in order to be inclusive of all members, delegates, resident commissioners, employees of the House, and their families."

In other words, the standing rules will now be gender-inclusive. ''Seamen'' will now be ''seafarers." ''Chairman'' is ''Chair." And one clause of House rules removed the terms father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother" — you get the idea.

The new rules also require "standing committees to include in their oversight plans a discussion of how committee work over the forthcoming Congress will address issues of inequities on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, or national origin; honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender-neutral."

Free Speech

One of the most egregious parts of the rules changes is the way they'll compromise free speech. Democrats want to protect free speech only if it's something they agree with. They've taken this to villainous extremes.

Deep Fake Media

●The Democrat rules package also made it an ethics violation for members to knowingly distribute "deep fake" media.

●The wording is vague, and could easily encompass conservative media. What do they mean by fake media? Memes? Articles? Jokes? Op-eds? "regulations addressing the dissemination by electronic means of any image, video, or audio file that has been distorted or manipulated with the intent to mislead the public.

●It applies not only to Representatives' official accounts but also to their personal accounts, a clear violation of free speech. "They would penalize any member who shares news or views that liberals and their allies in the media deem 'fake.' They actually make it an ethics violation, which is usually reserved for such unbecoming conduct as bribery and corruption."

Pay As You Go (PayGo) Exemptions

●The new rules also weaken PayGo, a budgetary-control measure that limits "Tax and Spend" policies and requires Congress to offset spending on bills that would increase the deficit.

●They are the payment rules on legislation related to the virus and climate change that previously required lawmakers to identify new revenue sources or spending cuts to fund their priorities.

●Democrats will now be able to force through any legislation regardless of the cost, and for legislation like the Green New Deal. Yet AOC actually had a problem with this caveat, but of course, her reason for opposing it is as asinine as you'd expect.

The Motion to Recommit (MTR)

Congress is a majoritarian institution. They govern themselves, as long as it doesn't violate the Constitution. Since Democrats regained the majority two years ago, they have treaded that line and I would say that they've been downright unconstitutional. For those entire two years, they boasted that in 2020 they'd sweep Congress, all of it, but especially The House of Representatives. They were wrong, and now they have the slimmest majority in years. And I'm positive that their hubris is largely responsible.

They were wrong, and now they have the slimmest majority in years.

Since the creation of the modern party system shortly before the Civil War, there have been 18 House majority changes, with Democrats in power the most.

●The motion to recommit provides one final opportunity for the House to debate and amend a measure, typically after the engrossment and third reading of the bill, before the Speaker orders the vote on final passage. ... The motion does not delay or kill the bill. MTR gives the Minority, and by extension their constituents, a voice by denying them the chance to debate a bill on the floor.

●It's been around since the House was founded, and in its present form since 1909. In 1919, Rep. Abraham Garrett said that "The Motion to Recommit is regarded as so sacred, it's one of the few rules protected against the Committee on Rules by the General Rules of the House."

●When Pelosi was in the Minority, she described the MTR as grounded in the Free Speech guaranteed by our constitution. Anytime the Republicans had the majority, they never even considered cutting off MTR.

Democrats shifted the goalposts by redefining words, by degrading the current meanings, and by trying to convince us that we are fundamentally immoral. It's textbook Critical Theory: attack our sense of reality, our understanding of knowledge, our guiding beliefs, and, now, our most fundamental rights.

We've entered the era of Critical Theory. Wokeness is the new law.

Literally.

The time for metaphors is over; the House of Representatives just instituted wokeness into policy. They're still not saying the quiet part aloud. Critical Theory allows for this. Saddle up to the new normal. The new authoritarianism. Just like how nobody took 20 seconds to hop on Wikipedia and check the etymology of "amen", none of the Democrats have really thought out their plan.

Article I, Section 8 of The Constitution delineates the powers granted to the Congress, one of which is "to provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrections and repel Invasions."

Well, lately, America has been overrun by insurrections and invasions and Congress can't do much about it because they're in on the insurrection. Significant factions within the legislative branch have encouraged these insurrections, they have validated the invasive radicals who threaten to destroy our country. And they've done it under the auspices of furtherance. Of being progressive. Of not being racist, or transphobic, or whatever insult is trendy on woke Twitter.

The time for metaphors is over; the House of Representatives just instituted wokeness into policy.

They're saying, "surrender some of your rights, some of your luxuries, some of your privileges — you have so many, you don't deserve them — and you'll make the world a smidge better." It's the kind of ideology that shreds through people like they're nothing and it is swallowing America whole. Once they change the rules and they change the words, you're living a real-life version of Orwell's 1984. What we need in a moment like this are strong people willing to face the wrath of a Leftist establishment that is all too happy to watch the world burn.

McCarthy talked about how people were feeling this indignation. Well, Kevin, I want you to know, it's not just you. I feel it. I think more than 70 million Americans feel it.

It's not going away any time soon.

And today, I ask that you just prepare mentally, for a rough road ahead. But one that we win in, in the end. And I can say it with confidence because I know the truth, will always set people free.

The truth will always prevail.
