Glenn Beck: Olbermann ratings hallucinations

MSNBC's Keith Olbermannn

GLENN: Highest rated show we've ever done was Monday night. We get Tuesday's ratings tonight.

PAT: It was over 3 million people the other night.

GLENN: Yeah, it was like 3.3 million people with both runs. It was 2.8 million, which used to be ‑‑ do you remember when we were over at CNN and Bill O'Reilly would have 2.5 million people watching and we would go, oh, my gosh!

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: That's a huge number. To put it into perspective, the CBS Evening News is about 4 million people, okay? That's network. Now, Bill just beat CBS Evening News the other night. I think he's beat them now twice. The mainstream media is becoming just totally irrelevant.

To put this into perspective, our 5:00 number, our 5:00 number of 2.8 and a total of 3.3 million people, 2.8 ‑‑ if you look at our number, 2.8, if you take Keith Olbermann ‑‑ in fact, do the math on this one, Stu. Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, and ‑‑

PAT: Chris Matthews.

GLENN: ‑‑ Chris Matthews, and you combine them, we still beat them.

PAT: By about 300,000. It's astounding. Except for, I don't know how you are making this, Glenn.

GLENN: Why is that?

PAT: Because I mean, I hate to ‑‑ I intrude with the facts here. May I? May I just intrude with the facts?

GLENN: I just realized where you were going. Yes, go ahead. And intrude with the facts from Keith Olbermann.

PAT: Thank you.

OLBERMANN: I hate to intrude with the facts but ours is the highest rated cable news program viewers 35 and younger and the highest rated cable news program for all viewers not on Fixed News. And since Fixed News is now migrating to ‑‑

GLENN: Stop, stop. I hate to intrude on the facts, but ‑‑

PAT: On those 35 years old who walk with a limp and are midgets.

GLENN: And if we exclude Fox News. That's like I'm the richest man in America if I exclude everyone who's richer than I am.

STU: That's like Dennis Kucinich is the president except for all the other candidates. That is fantastic.

GLENN: Dennis Kucinich is the sexiest man alive... to people who have no eyes or hands.

PAT: The Toledo mud hens are the best baseball team in the world... except for everybody above them in AAA and Major League Baseball. Other than that they are world series champions.

GLENN: I hate to intrude with the facts.

STU: That quote is a reference point for everything Keith Olbermann says.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Every time he says something, you can be sure that it's coming through that frame of reference. It's that accurate. He's come up with some bizarre justification how he can say it on the air and not get sued. But it's about that truthful.

GLENN: Unbelievable. Well, he dismisses. He goes on, if I'm not mistaken. Do you have the part where he dismisses Fox because he says ‑‑

STU: Yes.

GLENN: ‑‑ all we do is tell lies?

OLBERMANN: The tinfoil hatters, conspiracy theorists, paranoids and racists, it is not a news organization making this show the highest cable news program, period.

PAT: Can you believe he had the unmitigated gall?

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: MSNBC, who is just ‑‑

GLENN: An organ.

PAT: ‑‑ the menial wing, an organ of the White House, they have the unmitigated gall to level that claim at Fox. That's unbelievable.

GLENN: That we're only broadcasting now ‑‑ listen to that ‑‑ we're only broadcasting to tinfoil hat people. Did he call, did he say terrorists? Play it again.

OLBERMANN: I hate to intrude with the facts but ours is the highest cable news program viewers 35 and younger and the highest rated cable not on Fixed News and since Fixed News has now migrated completely over to serving propaganda, tinfoil hatters, conspiracy theorists, paranoids and racists ‑‑

GLENN: Stop. Paranoids, conspiracy theorists, racists and tinfoil hats, that's who you are. Now, when he says propaganda, propaganda is State‑Controlled Media.

PAT: That's right.

GLENN: I don't know how many lines you need to cross before you get to State‑Controlled Media. Does Barack Obama need to sign the check for Keith Olbermann before we can look at MSNBC and NBC News as State‑Controlled Media?

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?

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.
