Glenn Beck: Olbermann endorses 9/12 project


MSNBC's Keith Olbermannn

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. I am waiting for a decision to be made on where I am going to be on 9/12. I got it down to two things and the idea is what is going to be the you know, we all play a role. So what is the best thing that I can do on 9/12. If you haven't made your plans yet, please make your plans. I'll tell you hopefully maybe by the end of the show today. Otherwise tomorrow. I'm just waiting for some logistics to come through on something and then I'll tell you what I'm doing on 9/12 and I hope that you will join me or other 9/12ers or tea partygoers or where there are a lot of things going on and we'll tell you about them coming up in the next few days as we get closer to 9/12. But I will tell you that again I didn't expect it from Keith Olbermann but if we have can we just play just a little bit of what he said about the 9/12 group?

OLBERMANN: At its core beneficial, calling, unifying, thoughtful, restore the sense of September 12th, 2001? Not the dread or threat but of collaboration, meeting in the middle somewhere, standing together under one flag and trying to improve the conditions of all Americans.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Wow. I mean, he does get it.

GRAY: He gets it. I didn't think he would, but he does.

GLENN: He does.

PAT: Seems to.

GLENN: I didn't

PAT: That sounded pretty sincere.

GLENN: And I don't think he said that before when we started it. Remember everybody was trying to make me into a fear monger, that we wanted the fear of, you know, 9/11.

STU: It's so often that we see things in political terms. And when something like that happens, it's very possible that he may have had an initial reaction to it which was negative. But when he actually has seen it in progress and seen it going on.

GLENN: Shows the idea behind it.

STU: Turned around. I think that's cool, though. You've got to

GLENN: It shows that he was thinking and it shows that he was he's open to new ideas and to new, you know, different because he doesn't obviously agree with me on anything but, well, except for the 9/12 project.

PAT: But he's had a chance to watch your show and realize how sincere you are about things and maybe he gets into the spirit a little bit more.

OLBERMANN: But at its core, beneficial, calming, unifying, thoughtful, restore the sense of September 12, 2001. Not of dread or threat but of collaboration, meeting in the middle somewhere, standing together under one flag and trying to improve the conditions of all Americans.

GLENN: Isn't that I mean, he should have delivered the monologue when I introduced it.

STU: Is it possible that maybe he would come to the event and maybe co host it with you? It would show sort of a

GLENN: You know what? Maybe we should invite him to co host, you know, any event that we might be doing because that would be that would be quite amazing because he can, obviously he can put his, you know, petty partisan "I work for GE who has practically set up a desk next to Barack Obama's desk in the Oval Office."

STU: Well, it's not really practical. Practically the head of the company's in, you know, he's one of the advisors to the president. So I mean, you are right. I guess not practically. The desk location might be different, you are right.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. I mean, he is you know, and he's working for GE which is just such a great, great...

VOICE: GE, we bring evil to life.

GLENN: And for him to be able to detach from the evil of his gigantic global corporation that is currently being called Enron for its accounting scandal that, you know, come right out of your taxpayer dollars. But it was only $50 billion, you know, and then also spending all of that money on anti mob things because they have billions of dollars to gain in GE healthcare, you know, so they can say, you know, things like, hey, don't worry. At GE we're building a better tomorrow. And for him to be able to detach from that constant pounding of what that giant corporation wants him to say and do to help the president of the United States.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Is

PAT: It's moving really. Again it's moving.

GLENN: It is moving.

PAT: I've been moved. And for because as a rule I think that sheer evil sheerly corrupts those who are around and within it.

GLENN: But here's a sign that, here's a sign that I mean, he's been moved deeply.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: He's deeply been touched.

STU: Personally I think.

GLENN: Anyway.

STU: You could just tell by because I saw the video of this statement.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And you could tell by the way he stops, pauses and turns to the camera that he

PAT: When he does that, you know he's being real.

STU: Yeah, that's just natural. That's what people do. That's how they speak. They just suddenly pause and at the exact time it switches and he knows exactly which that's how you do that. Like when I proposed to my wife, I got down on one knee and then I stopped and I looked down and then I turned to the right and I looked right up at her just like that because when you do that, you're giving a sense of sincerity.

GLENN: Well, it's almost Shakespearian the way he

STU: Yeah, I think that is a good reference, Shakespearian.

GLENN: Well, for that relief, much thanks.

STU: Right, yeah. Like that's a you know, can you imagine how great it would be to be able to actually just take a woman that has been writing in as a fan of the show and then go to some hotel and have sex with her and then say for this relief, much thanks, and then have an assistant write and say, I don't ever want to talk to you again; don't ever call or write?

STU: Yeah, I'm not getting the reference here but you are right about people crossing political divides.

GLENN: It's right out of the top of my head but thank you, Keith Olbermann, for the endorsement of the 9/12 project. It was big of you, and much thanks.

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.

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.
