Glenn Beck: Beer Me!

The Obama National Anthem...

GLENN: Well, hello. Third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck, from Radio City in Midtown Manhattan. I'm glad you're here. It is Friday. And yesterday we had... (slurping). We had a beer summit and it was great, wasn't it? Here's what happened. The president got everybody together. Nobody admitted they were wrong. Nobody apologized. Problem solved. What I'm saying.

STU: This is as good as his foreign policy. This is what he's going to do with Iran. You get together with them, both kind of just talk, have a beer and nothing will happen, they will build some nukes and we'll all be fine.

GLENN: I mean, not everybody will be fine. Some will be more than fine. Some will be made into glass.

STU: I mean, a few million here or there.

PAT: We'll agree to disagree with Iran and North Korea.

GLENN: And get together. I'd love to hear the conversations because Crowley and gates agreed to disagree. One called him a racist. One said it was just a white man trying to level the playing field because he was jealous of a back man being a professor at Harvard. And then they agreed to disagree on that. Nobody apologized. And so but they did say they were going to talk a lot on the phone. Now, I'd just like to know what that conversation is like. I mean, is it like, hey, professor, what are you doing?

PAT: Pretty good. How are you?

GLENN: Mmm, I'm okay.

PAT: What... is new since last we talked, you know, at the table?

GLENN: Nothing.

PAT: That's good. Let's do this again.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Bye bye.

GLENN: I mean, what is that? What are they going to say to each other? It's going to be the most ridiculous conversation I've ever heard. Then Crowley came out and said, hey, the president really didn't take a stand. He didn't take a stand? He wasn't really involved? What was this all about? He took a stand earlier.

STU: It just seems like there would be a bunch of awkwardness. It reminds me of Back to the Future which in one of the Back to the Future sequels no, maybe it was the end of the first one where Biff is washing and waxing the car. Remember this? And like they are all kind of talking to each other and saying, hey, Biff, make sure you get both coats on there. This guy tried to rape your wife a few years ago. Do you remember this? Remember this situation? You had to punch him in the face? He was raping your wife in a car outside your high school and now you're just hanging out with him and he's waxing your car? Like you have this nice little business relationship? The man was an attempted rapist.

GLENN: So what you are saying, are you comparing Professor Gates with Biff Tanner?

STU: I'm just saying that there's controversy between the two.

GLENN: You are not going to get this kind of astute political commentary any place else.

STU: Anywhere else.

GLENN: Not going to get this from number one, certainly. Number two, uh uh.

STU: My point is here that they both think each other did horrible things. One of them is accusing him of racism, the other one is a racist to these two people. What are they going to hang out and talk about, honestly?

GLENN: I'm trying to figure out which one of these is a racist. One of these things just doesn't belong. I'd like to play that on Sesame Street, "One of these things just doesn't belong." Put all three of them up there and then you pick the one that's not a racist.

PAT: Biden. Biden was the one that's not the racist. He was there.

GLENN: Was he there?

PAT: Joe Biden was there.

GLENN: (Slurring). Beer, whew!

BIDEN: The Villages, America's friendliest home towns. The Villages, America's friendliest hometown.

GLENN: Maybe all of them could have done this. The Villages!

STU: It never gets old, audio.

GLENN: Then, do you have the other audio in Pat's audio vault?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Do you have the other audio of Joe Biden when he came out on the campaign trail? I swear to you I'm not convinced The Villages song is Joe Biden but they have never denied it.

PAT: No, they haven't.

GLENN: But this one is so he's so clearly, as a recovering alcoholic, I know hammered. Listen to this.

BIDEN: Hello, folks! My name's Joe Biden. I'm from Scranton, Pennsylvania.

GLENN: Where?

BIDEN: I'm a senator because the first guys to endorse me in 1972 were the United Steel Workers of America. The only reason I'm a senator.

GLENN: The only reason.

BIDEN: This is my wife Jill or actually I'm her husband. And I'll introduce the next two people in their order of importance. The first and most important part, Michelle Obama.

GLENN: Say she's hot. Say she's hot.

BIDEN: Did you hear her speech at the convention? I tell you, man, I always liked Barack but I love her.

GLENN: I love her.

BIDEN: I know you don't know much about her, doesn't draw very big crowds or anything like that. A guy from Illinois named Barack Obama.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: (Slurring). I've been with the union since 1972, how could I... all of a sudden he comes waltzing in, community organizer. I've been here fighting for the damn unions and, ooh, she's hot. Hi, sweet, what's your name? Did I just say that out loud? I'm having a problem with my inner dialogue.

STU: That's what it sounds like in your inner dialogue? No wonder you're stumbling around all the time.

GLENN: Sometimes, sometimes I find myself saying something and it's like, shoot, I shouldn't have said that.

STU: (Laughing). And you almost should have said well, forget it.

GLENN: What? So I'm glad they had the beer thing. I feel better as a nation. Don't you think we're healed? Especially after I mean, we have to play this one more time. It's exclusive audio that nobody it's exclusive audio that nobody's playing. I mean, this is when he said they just acted stupidly, President Obama knew, you know, he knew about some of the tapes that had been out there on Crowley that have not been released. Well, we did some digging and we found them and here it is.

(Audio plays).

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?
