Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Is the audio good enough to play of this Lindsey Graham?

PAT: I'm not sure. He's really sounds like somebody recorded this on a cellphone and so he's way in the background.

GLENN: Stu, can you get Kevin on the phone? Can you see if you can get Kevin on the line here. Tell me what he's saying here.

PAT: Lindsey Graham is doing, looks like a town hall meeting and people are yelling at him. Because, you know, here's a guy who was pro amnesty.

GLENN: Pro amnesty.

PAT: Voted for Sotomayor.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: He voted for the stimulus package. He's just signed on for the climate change bill. And then he claims, you know, that he's this amazing conservative and, in fact, he called you out last week on the "Well, we're going to have him be a conservative" just because you said what you said on the remember that?

GLENN: Give me this again.

PAT: Remember what he said?

STU: Important distinction here because he did not say conservative.

GLENN: Let's listen to what he says.

PAT: Yeah, because it's

GRAHAM: Frankly I don't want to go down the road of thinking our best days are behind us. We need to act decisively. People are genuinely upset with how much money we're spending up here. But at the end of the day when a person says he represents conservatism

PAT: See?

GRAHAM: And that the country's better off with Barack Obama than John McCain, that sort of ends the debate for me as

PAT: Kind of ends the debate for me when you voted for the stimulus, when you voted for amnesty, when you voted for

GLENN: For Sotomayor.

PAT: For Sotomayor now and when you voted for the climate change bill, that sort of ends it for me.

STU: I thought you were talking about the one with the Republican Party, the voice of the Republican Party which you never claimed that you wanted.

GLENN: No, no. You know what, it's MSNBC and all these others, it's the DNC that wants to make me the voice of the Republican Party because they think that that's, you know, somehow or another, you know, a bad thing for the Republicans. I don't think you can, I don't think you can do more damage to the Republican Party than the Republicans are doing to the Republican Party.

PAT: Yeah, I think he says it at the beginning.

VOICE: Are you saying that Glenn Beck is bad for America?

GRAHAM: No, I'm not saying he's bad for America. You got the freedom to watch him if you choose. He did a pretty good job on ACORN. What I am saying, he doesn't represent the Republican Party.

PAT: Got that right. Yeah, you got that right.

GLENN: And I believe that Lindsey Graham now does represent the Republican Party.

PAT: And that's kind of what the people in this gymnasium are screaming at him.

GLENN: Yes, that is the problem. So what is he do we have any of this audio here?

PAT: We do.

GLENN: Is he running for reelection or is he just trying to run for his life? Do you know?

PAT: Not sure.

STU: Didn't he just get reelected? I'm not sure.

GLENN: I have no idea.

STU: Did he? I'll try to look it up.

GLENN: That's probably why he is trying to get away with this stuff.

(Audio playing)

PAT: You can hear people yelling at him and

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Okay, stop, listen to this.

PAT: So they are going to take this party and move it forward and if you don't like it, you can leave.

GLENN: Go back. What were they shouting afterwards? What was the reaction of the crowd?

PAT: He's going to find people, he's going to find people in Maine, in Delaware and whatever and then people are yelling, then move there.

GLENN: Move there.

PAT: Then move there.

GLENN: And we're going to take this party forward.

PAT: And if you don't like it

GLENN: And if you don't like it, leave, okay? Let me hear the rest, where the crowd says after he says that.

(Audio plays)

GLENN: They already have. Listen to that. See, stop. This is the problem with the Republican Party. They are playing they are Democrat Light. Did you not learn from history and FDR? Lindsey Graham is doing exactly the same thing that the Republicans did well, me, too. Me, too, me, too. Well, if we don't move, they are going to run over us. Me, too, me, too, I can do that; I just won't do as much. What, are you out of your mind, Lindsey Graham? See, this is the thing. Listen to the arrogance. We talk about the arrogance of the Barack Obama administration. Listen to the arrogance of Lindsey Graham: And if you don't like it, you can leave. Well, Lindsey, I think they have. I think they have. He says they're not going to become the party of angry white men. Oh, well, that's not too racist. What do you mean you are not going to be the party of angry white men? Do you know why the white men, white women, black men, black women, Hispanics, doesn't matter, do you know why Americans are angry? Because of attitudes like yours! If you don't like it, you can leave. Excuse me? Who works for who? You work for me, you little weasel. I've been paying your stinkin' salary! I have been paying I'm paying for your pension until the day you die! Are you excuse me? I want to say, "Are you talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me?"

STU: And when you think about the list that Pat just, you know, went through of all these policies, policy after policy after policy, you have to ask the question, if you are going to be an opposition party of Lindsey Graham, why bother having an opposition party?

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: It's just a pain, it's just a pain to go ahead with it.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Why is the R and the D? It's too many letters.

GLENN: Let's take one in between.

Kevin, Lindsey Graham, could we find a bookstore down

STU: Oh, boy.

GLENN: I'm just sayin'. Maybe in his, in the heart of his state that maybe has a lot of land around it where maybe I could sign some books, go down there and sign some books and maybe exercise my freedom of speech for, like, an hour, about him? Do you think maybe you could see if there's a bookstore that would be interested in hosting us for that event.

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

wal_172619/Pixabay

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.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
