GLENN: Okay, I would like to know where all the Dr. Mengele's are that are ‑‑

PAT: Boy, there's a lot of them.

GLENN: ‑‑ ripping kids' tonsils out and amputating feet.

PAT: How many people have had their feet cut off because the doctor just wanted to make $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 extra bucks. I wonder. I'd like to see the stats on that.

GLENN: I would love to see the stats on this. You know, President Obama I think came out yesterday, and it's interesting to me that ‑‑ there are many things that I believe that I shall never say but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. So let's skip that and let's just go to ‑‑

PAT: Good. Wow, was that a first?

GLENN: Yes, I believe it was.

PAT: I believe we just heard a first on the program.

GLENN: Was that a first?

STU: You mean he actually edited himself on the program?

PAT: He actually self‑edited there.

STU: Wow, congratulations.

GLENN: You know what? Let me say this, though. No, no, no, no. On the self‑editing thing, I ask that you please even watch the show or listen to the show and take some notes. Really I'm turning this information over to you. That's why I have the watchdogs. I need you to do your brainwork on it. I need you to spread the message. I need you to be an evangelist for the message. I've asked you before, pray for more time. I don't know why I feel that way, but I do. Pray for more time, please. And take these things down and pass them on. You know, they have a community organized group that has been years in the making. We don't have years. We maybe have, you know, a few weeks, month, I don't know how long. But we've got to organize and we have to be out there. Please pass on the information that you hear on the show. Ponder it in your heart. Pray on it. See if you believe it's true. If it is, please pass it on to other people.

Okay. So I don't know where he's coming up with these doctors, but here's the audio from Pat's audio vault on, I just, I think this is amazing on why we need to have a different system that is not capitalist in nature.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: All I'm saying is let's take the example of something like diabetes, one of a disease that's skyrocketing partly because of obesity.

GLENN: Stop. Stop there for a second. So what is ‑‑ if it's skyrocketing partly because of obesity, what should the government do if we want to control obesity? What does the government do?

STU: Take away all sugar and fat. Ban them.

GLENN: They are going to have to control what you eat.

PAT: Yep, yep.

GLENN: Or you are going to have to be ‑‑ I'm sorry, but you are a fat, fat fatty, and they do this in Japan already. They measure your waist. If you don't ‑‑ if you are too fat, you don't get the healthcare. You've got to get yourself under control.

STU: Exactly. Just like the guy who in England who drank too much, so they didn't give him the liver he needed.

GLENN: Exactly right. But he was 21.

PAT: But to the question, what should the government do? Nothing.

GLENN: Nothing.

PAT: Nothing.

GLENN: Nothing. Okay. So now that you've just seen a seed planted: Because of obesity, diabetes is skyrocketing. Understand that that comes, if they are now in charge of who gets care and who doesn't get care, they are now in charge of that; well, they are going to have to, they have to cut costs. So we better regulate the food that's out there. We better regulate what you eat. And if you're in shape ‑‑ if you don't exercise, well, then you are not going to get healthcare. Don't think it's not coming. All right. So here's the rest of it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Partly because it's not treated as effectively as it could be. Right now if we paid a family ‑‑ if a family care physician works with his or her patient to help them lose weight, modify diet, monitors whether they are taking their medications in a timely fashion, they might get reimbursed a pittance. But if that same doctor ‑‑

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Have you ever heard the phrase that you see the things inside of you, you know? And I know this to be true. I see things in people sometimes and I recognize them. I can recognize arrogance because I have been an out‑of‑control egomaniac for much of my life. Hopefully I have shed most of that. But I can recognize it in somebody that their ego is going to destroy them because I have been destroyed by my ego.

Have you noticed, have you noticed how many times these people are equating people who are healthcare providers with people who will do evil things for money? These are people that are supposed to heal and instead because of their evil greed, because money turns people into monsters, they are willing to do this:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Ends up getting their foot amputated, that's $30,000, $40,000, $50,000. Immediately the surgeon is reimbursed.

PAT: So instead of doing preventative care, which isn't going to ‑‑ you know, and by the way, again not the same doctor. Not the same doctor who's doing the preventative medicine from the surgeon who after the guy who's doing the preventative medicine has done everything he can and then your foot is still, goes gangrenous or whatever it is, then he turns you over to the surgeon who then cuts off your ‑‑ amputates your foot. Not the same guy even. I mean, does he not have that simple understanding?

GLENN: It doesn't make any sense.

PAT: Doesn't make any sense.

GLENN: Doesn't make any sense whatsoever. And if we have a problem with the doctors doing that, then the government should go after those doctors that are doing that.

PAT: And it's not the first time he said it. Remember the tonsil thing.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Doctors a lot of times are forced to make decisions ‑‑

GLENN: A lot of times.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ‑‑ based on the fee payment schedule that's out there. So if they look, you come and you've got a bad sore throat or your child has a bad sore throat or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, "You know what, I make a lot more money if I take this kid's tonsils out."

GLENN: Stop. That is just, have you finally lost it?

PAT: Can't take it.

GLENN: Can't take it.

PAT: Can't take it.

GLENN: I can't.

PAT: I feel that way every day about 1,000 times.

GLENN: You know what, play it again and I'll show you where I said I can't take it. Play it again for me.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Doctors a lot of times are forced to make decisions based on demand fee payment schedule.

GLENN: Stop. There it is. The fee payment schedule that's out there. A lot of times doctors, you know, have to do certain things because of the fee payment schedule that's out there.

Stu, do you know who makes the fee payment schedule?

STU: Evil corporations?

GLENN: No, uh‑uh. Hey, Pat, who makes the fee payment schedule?

PAT: The government.

GLENN: What? The government?

STU: Not profiteers?

PAT: Medicare and Medicaid set the fee payment schedule.

STU: No, no, he specifically said they're just out there.

GLENN: They're just out there. The government through Medicare and Medicaid set the fee payment schedule!

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: And then off of that, the insurance companies inflate the number for the capitalist system! The insurance companies are like, well, they will only pay this; we'll do, what is it, like double? We'll do double what Medicare and Medicaid are going to do.

STU: Right. So essentially they charge higher prices to non‑ Medicare participants to make up for the money that they are losing.

GLENN: Exactly right. Exactly right. So if there's a problem with doctors having to do things because they can't afford it, they have this evil desire for money, well, they'll cut people's feet off... I mean, good God almighty, what is this president saying?

PAT: Just for money. Why ‑‑ again we ask this question with the tonsil thing. Why aren't doctors hacked off about this? Why do we have to be hacked off on behalf of all doctors?

GLENN: You know what?

PAT: What is that?

GLENN: You know who's not getting a lot of coverage? Nurses. Nurses are uniting against this stuff. And, you know, I can't take the lies anymore that this is just ‑‑ has anyone in the media asked, "Hey, do you have a deal with the prescription drug companies?" The answer is yes! Do you have a deal with the healthcare industry? The answer is yes! Now, how can you be demonizing these people and yet getting into bed with them?

You know that Robert Reich, a guy who, everything this man says is a nightmare. He is so in bed with this administration and yet he has pulled himself out of universal healthcare, he says, because the Obama administration has made deals with the prescription drug companies that we won't use your buying power against you and hurt you. And so the prescription drug companies went in.

STU: This is after saying over and over again he was going to do all negotiations on C‑Span.

GLENN: When is anyone going to wake up for the love of God. Our country is being destroyed. It has been taken over by liars, thieves, and radicals! When will someone in the mainstream media hold this man's feet to the fire? Pray for more time.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.
