Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government

by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Let's go to Jesse in Richmond. Jesse is going to what college are you going to, Jesse?

CALLER: Glenn, I'm going to John Tyler Community College.

GLENN: Okay. And your professor.


GLENN: We wouldn't say that he's an idiot, but he's been arguing with the new book.

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: Okay. And one of your classmates brought the book in, which is your first mistake. You don't, you don't bring it you bring the list of arguments in.


GLENN: And you look for them in the footnotes at the end and you say when he says, where did you get that fact, you say, New York Times. And they're like, oh, well, yes, okay, New York Times. See what I mean?

CALLER: Yeah, yeah. No, I understand. I actually was caught on quoting the 5,000 Year Leap earlier in the same semester from the same guy.

GLENN: You moron.

CALLER: So anyways, that seems to happen. But it was funny because he tried to demonize you throughout that day. But the next class we came in on Wednesday.


CALLER: The extra credit that we have for our final is to find incorrect or errors in your book, any one of your books, and for every error we find in one of your books, we get an extra point on our final. And I was like, well, wait a minute, wait a minute.

GLENN: You have got to be kidding me.

CALLER: That's not fair.

GLENN: Ask him in fairness if he will do the same with Al Gore's book.

CALLER: I did that. I said, okay, so is it possible you're saying, you know, he's an extreme right side. Okay, fair enough. What about extreme left, you know? Can I take somebody on the extreme left and do that and he said, sure, but I can't think of anybody, so no. I'm like, what?

GLENN: I can't think of anybody? Okay. We can find them.

CALLER: So there goes a question for you. Can you find me an extreme left side?

GLENN: Yes. Michael Moore, any of Michael Moore's books, any of Al Gore's books.


GLENN: I mean, you will have so many points, we'll help you do it. You'll have so many extra points on Al Gore on his, you know, on his Inconvenient Truth.

CALLER: Now, the only catch, this is a political science class. So everything I find in there, I'll have to refute with my social science book. So it's typically going to be something that's more logistical than it is actually the world is coming to an end due to this catastrophic, you know, one degree in temperature.

STU: You know what's an easy one, Glenn, in Arguing With Idiots there's a whole section picking apart Michael Moore's movie about healthcare. I mean, it's point by point.

PAT: Sicko.

GLENN: There you go. There you go. There's your extra credit. Look, take my name off it. Put all of the footnotes on that chapter and turn it in. Done. You're not wait, wait. You are not plagiarizing if I give you permission, right?

STU: I don't know if that's the way it works. I think when you're in class, you're supposed whatever. This class, who cares.

PAT: Remember, remember when President Obama quoted Governor Duval in one of his speeches an exact quote and everybody said, you ripped him off! No, he told me to use it.

GLENN: So you have my permission to take the healthcare chapter which takes Michael Moore's Sicko absolutely apart and use that.


GLENN: But don't use the footnotes.

CALLER: Will do. One final note, something I thought was hilarious. When I was saying, you know, that he can't think of any, another girl that sits to the front of me ended up saying, you know, she just kind of mumbled this. She was like, well, I guess it kind of comes down to some are doing it for the money and just some are doing it to enlighten others. I was like... what? I guess that's suggesting that Glenn Beck's only reason to do it is to make money and everyone else is just to enlighten others.

GLENN: Well, you know, that is can I tell you something? That is the excuse of people who don't make money while enlightening others. You know? Because I, quite honestly I did it to enlighten others and make money.

PAT: You evil, evil person.

STU: Capitalist!

GLENN: For those people who just can't seem to put two things together and they're like, well, it's, it's... it's an academic book. No, no, it's because you can't write your thoughts down and also have it as a commercial success. Because you're an idiot.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Okay. Jesse.


GLENN: You have to send me your paper and you have to send me the results on this, and I have to meet your class. You guys have to come up on a field trip here in New York because you sound like the guy that everybody's giving their professor crap. Like, nope, you're an idiot.

CALLER: There were about half the kids there that were just about laughing their heads off while we were trying to figure out what this extra credit was going to be.

GLENN: Does everybody in the class have a copy of the book?

CALLER: No, I can say that they don't. I actually don't have one. I was going to buy one.

GLENN: You are kidding me. How many people in your class?

CALLER: I would guess about 24.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I'm going to put you on hold. Keith is going to get the address. I'm going to send 24 I'll send you 30 books, okay?

CALLER: Awesome.

GLENN: And I need to get the name of your professor because I'm going to make one out to him. Hang on just a second. That will get you extra credit.

STU: This is going to be constant F's. There's going to be a nonstop F parade in this class. It's going to be I would say that there's about a 0% chance that there's going to be a passing grade issued by this teacher.

GLENN: There's not a shot of there's not a shot of you passing the class at all.

All right, back in a second.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
