Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: Ho, ho, ho, green jobs czar. But you look into Van Jones. This guy is evil. This guy is ‑‑ he is the community organizer. He'll say and do anything, and all he is is Mr. Intimidation. That's it. Mr. Intimidation.

STU: He's built his career on ‑‑

GLENN: On intimidating.

STU: ‑‑ branding and intimidating and vilifying.

GLENN: That's all he does.

STU: That's his gig.

GLENN: You've got to cry race, you've got to cry foul of some sort. I mean, this is a bad dude. And President Obama said, you know, we played this yesterday before the show. How do I know about your policies? How do we judge your policies? How do I know? Do you remember? Everybody was saying, you know, what is change? Change to what? You've been very nonspecific on everything. So how do we ‑‑ while he was distancing himself from Jeremiah Wright, while he was distancing himself from, you know, Saul Alinsky and ‑‑

PAT: Rasheed Khalidi.

GLENN: Rasheed Khalidi and William Ayers and all these people, "No, no, no, I'm just friends with them," he actually said on the campaign trail these things.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If I'm interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate Joe Biden or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate foreign relations committee or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO. Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans, who have shaped my ideas and who will be surrounding me.

GLENN: Okay. So he's basically saying look to the people I surround myself with.

PAT: Yep. Who's in my administration.

GLENN: Who are they? Well, they're ‑‑ we know one.

VOICE: Ho, ho, ho, green jobs czar.

GLENN: The green jobs czar, who is a communist! A self‑proclaimed communist. Okay, so he's shaping the views of the president of the United States. We've got a guy who says you can forcibly take children away from unwed mothers. We have a guy who says the planet is unsustainable with the population that we have. You should be able to put sterilants in drinking water. The man has never retracted that statement. He's clarified: Well, I don't think we should do it, but I think we should look into that technology. Why! Why? I think we shall be able to ‑‑ "You know what, I think we should be able to pull the eyeballs out of little children." Do you think you should just ‑‑ "No, no, I don't really think that we should pull the eyeballs, but we should look into the technology that should allow us to pull the eyeballs out of little children." Why! No one's willing to ask the tough questions, and I'm telling you there are many things that I believe that I shall never say, but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. Please listen. There is a tremendous amount of ill will from people in power. You must find your voice. You must take the things that we have said on this program. Ask yourself who in the mainstream media is telling you the things that we are telling you. I got a note from somebody today that will remain anonymous that is in a very powerful position that said thank God, Glenn, I know that this doesn't mean anything to you but I stopped what I was doing to watch your show yesterday and nobody is saying that, and I appreciate it and I want you to know it doesn't mean anything but I'm with you. I immediately wrote back and said you have no idea how much it means that you're with me. Even if you are behind the scenes and nobody ever knows, it means a great deal because this staff feels very alone. We are trying to bring you the truth as we understand it and nobody ‑‑ you know, it's Jack Nicholson: You don't want the truth; you can't handle the truth. I believe you can handle the truth. But there are billions of dollars at stake. These people are going to destroy ‑‑ I just want you to understand. I'm not suicidal, I'm not thinking about just disappearing to ‑‑ what was Olivia Newton John's husband, found in Mexico? I'm not thinking about just disappearing. I love my family. I want my family around me forever. I wouldn't just disappear. You know, there's ‑‑ I'm just telling you there are people that we are effecting billions of dollars, hundreds of billions of dollars. And if you look into organizations like the Tides Foundation, the Tides Foundation, they started laying the groundwork on this back during the Reagan administration. They have been assembling an army that we have laughed at and have dismissed as a bunch of community organizers. "ACORN, what is that?" It is only the tip of the iceberg. What you see on the surface, what you are being shown every day is an iceberg. 70, 80% of this iceberg is submerged and no one is even looking for it. And those who do see it are afraid to say anything. Don't be afraid. Ask bold questions. Root yourself and hold onto the truth. And then speak without fear. You may lose voices and you may lose them overnight. But do not ever be discouraged. Those things will be done to discourage you, to make an example out of those people. Oh, yeah? You're next. These people are bullies. These people are thugs. If voices disappear, if voices are discredited, if voices are made to look whatever way, if voices are blamed for anything, you remember these words. They are happening for a reason. They are happening because you're getting too close to the truth and they want to send an example to you: Don't you dare lose your place; we're in control. I want you to know that's a lie. This is your country. We play by the rules in this country.

The great thing is you know that almost everybody in Washington has no spine. Find yours because I know you have one. Find yours. And when you go to these town hall meetings, you make sure you bring a video recorder. You make sure you bring a Flip video. I don't care if it's a gigantic 1990s Handycam, whatever it is, but you record everything. You send it to me; I'll put it up. You watch for thugs around these rooms. You watch for anybody who happens to be saying, "Hey, so what's your name?" You speak out. You say, then somebody comes up, wants to know your name and just pretends to be very, very nice. This is happening. "Hey, what's your name?" Glenn Beck. Who are you? "Hey, I'm just ‑‑ you know, I'm just with one of the organizations. I just wanted to know your name. Have a good day." That's happening. You get it on tape. I'll show it. Don't be intimidated. That's what they do. And don't you dare swing back because that's what they want you to do. That's what they need you to do. That I believe is what we're being set up for. They are already planting the seeds on it's the crazy tea partiers that just want to destroy the country and set it on fire. No, it's not. Don't play into it.

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.
