Glenn Beck: Chairman Anita




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p and 2a ET on the Fox News Channel...

GLENN: The other pressure that he is receiving is from our side. Now, I want to play the audio of Anita Dunn. This is what we released yesterday. Anita Dunn is the woman who was put in charge by Rahm ‑‑ by someone in the White House to watch Fox News and destroy. That was her job: Seek and destroy, smear, take him out. It came out into the Washington Post yesterday in the style section, and I believe this was a, this was a ‑‑ who does a news story in the style section on Anita Dunn, the woman who is set to take out Fox News?

STU: Well, if you've seen the video of her, she's very stylish.

GLENN: She is very stylish.

STU: When I think style ‑‑

GLENN: I got it, I got it. So who puts that in the style section? That is someone in the White House, that's Rahm ‑‑ that's somebody in the White House calling the Washington Post and saying, "I need to, I need to have this story in. They are not going to put it in the regular news section because that way the White House can't massage it. Because even bad journalists at the Washington Post have some standards. So they put it in there, and this was, I think, a shot saying, "Okay, okay, this was a bad idea." "Okay, okay, stop with the red phone. All right, that was a bad idea." Because what they said in that is she's a genius, she's a genius. But she's going away very soon. We're just going to ‑‑ she's going away. She was expendable. In the article it also says that she was the only one that could afford the blows. They said that in the same sentence where they were talking about she's going away soon. So in other words, we're going to go try to slug Fox and take them out but it doesn't matter anyway because she's going away. So if it doesn't work, she's going away. That w as a message from the White House in the Washington Post, I think, that says, don't worry, okay, okay, okay, stop with the red phone, we're okay, okay.

So I don't really care what the message is from the White House, I mean, unless it's ‑‑ you know what? Hang on. Hang on. We're going to stop and read the Constitution. That's what we're going to do. That message I'd like to hear. A message that says, "Hey, okay, okay, okay, we're going to stop hiring Marxist revolutionaries." That message I'd like to hear. Other than that I don't really give a flying crap. I'm about the truth. Watchdogs who I believe at their own self‑peril reached out and gave us videotape of Anita Dunn giving a talk in, was it, Washington? I can't remember where it was.

PAT: Yeah, it was Bethesda, Maryland.

GLENN: At a Catholic high school giving a talk for graduating seniors. So this is a high school. Now, I want to preface this with, this was given to me at this time so I could expose it on the air. The media has not responded to this. The White House has. I'll play that response for you. But the response to Jake Tapper from ABC, he asked Anita Dunn, what about this Marxist Mao stuff that you did? Her answer was, oh, I was just kidding.

PAT: Oh, boy.

GLENN: Listen to it, and you tell me if this sounds like she was kidding.

DUNN: But the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point, which is, you're going to make choices. You're going to challenge. You're going to say, "Why not?" You're going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before. But here's the deal: These are your choices. They are no one else's.

In 1947, when Mao Zedong was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over, Chiang Kai‑shek and the Nationalist Chinese held the cities, they had the army, they had the air force, they had everything on their side. And people said, "How can you win? How can you do this? How can you do this against all of the odds against you?" And Mao Zedong said, you know, "You fight your war, and I'll fight mine." And think about that for a second.

GLENN: I am.

DUNN: You know, you don't have to accept the definition of how to do things, and you don't have to follow other people's choices and paths, OK? It is about your choices and your path. You fight your own war.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, oh! Now that I've got it in context that she was kidding, you are right, it is so funny. (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait, I think I ‑‑ she says, what I learned from Mao, the guy I think of most often, one of my political, my favorite political philosophers ‑‑

PAT: One of two.

GLENN: I think you don't have to follow your own path. If you want to shoot somebody in the head or thousands of people in the head to gain power, you could go ahead and do that! (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: All right, seriously, seriously, kids, I'm here all week. I'm here all week with the waiters and waitresses because they're people, too.

STU: I totally get it. I totally get it.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: That was a joke? All right, Pat, I ‑‑

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: See, he killed, he killed as many as 70 million people.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Hang on, hang on, hang on.

PAT: That's rich.

GLENN: Hang on. And he set up gulags!

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait.

PAT: I can't take it anymore!

GLENN: He said, this is Mao, this is Mao ‑‑ Anita's, one of her two favorite political philosophers that she thinks about all the time, okay? Mao said, we're willing to sacrifice 300 million Chinese.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: He said ‑‑ wait, wait, wait. Wait, wait. Wait. But then he looks at the people and he says, hey, if somebody's trying to commit suicide to get out of here, you go ahead. You don't stop them because, hey, with this kind of population, it's not like we can't spare a few!

PAT: (Laughing).

PAT: I've always loved the comedy stylings of Mao Zedong. Oh, I saw him one time. This had to be back in, I don't know, the early Fifties at laugh stop in Beijing. And he slayed like 3800 people! (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, man, did he ever ‑‑

PAT: I mean literally slayed them!

GLENN: Oh, man. Make sure you join Mao Zedong in the cat skills this ‑‑

STU: Is he going to have milk out your nose?

GLENN: Yeah, milk out your nose.

PAT: So ridiculous.

GLENN: Wow. She was kidding. That's her defense. She was kidding.

PAT: Clearly not, clearly not.

GLENN: Now, at least she has one. I'd like to ask what the defense of the media is for not covering this. We had it yesterday. Besides Jake Tapper who tweeted about it, who tweeted about it.

STU: We really should come up with a sounder that says besides Jake Tapper because we always have to say that, the media didn't cover it besides Jake Tapper because he actually is one out there asking real questions.

PAT: He is.

GLENN: Well, Jake Tapper is doing it on tweeter, you know, on Twitter.

STU: Well, yes.

GLENN: So he tweeted about it.

STU: And obviously ‑‑

GLENN: And I don't think that's necessarily ‑‑ I mean, God bless him. I'm saying the media overlords over at ABC.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Jake Tapper is at least asking and he's at least tweeting about it. Where is the ABC apparatus there? When is somebody just going to say, when is somebody going to stand up and say, I walk? When is somebody going to stand up and say in the administration, you know, I'd love to see the people who love George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson. I keep finding them that love Mao, that love Marx, that love Chavez, that love Cuba. Is there anybody there that, you know, will take John Adams over Castro? I'd like to see them. And I ‑‑ you know, they will come out now. I'm sure Rahm ‑‑ I'm sure somebody in the White House will dig up somebody that is going to say, "Oh, I... oh, I love John Adams." Really? I'm going to quiz you on them. You tell me why you love them. I'd like to see the passion for the founding fathers, off prompter. They can't do it. Barack Obama studied them, but he's also studied Marxism and Saul Alinsky. I mean, I'll save it for next week.

Here is the interesting thing. So yesterday we do this show and we play that, and do you have the D block by any chance where I say I'm tired? I don't know if you can find it. But I said, if you watch the show ‑‑ in fact, we had somebody call and say, Glenn, you've got to stop crying. And I know. But in that block I said, look, I'm tired, you're tired, we're all tired. We're busy with our jobs and we come home and we're ‑‑ what's happening in school with our kids? And then the indoctrination videos. And then you watch the TV shows and you're like, you've got to be kidding me; what the hell's going on? Your bank account is dwindling around ‑‑ dwindling away. I'm tired; you're tired. But we're going to make it. So this is what I said. After I exposed yet another Marxist and said you can't let any of these things pass, you've got to stop these people dead in their tracks because they're building framework. Marxist, Maoist framework. And I'm tired. And you're tired. But we've got to do it.

Now, you tell me ‑‑ do you have the two cuts? Do you have the mop and the other?

PAT: I've not found the audio of the mop, just the printed word, but I have the other one.

GLENN: Give me the printed word first. This is the printed word first, and we'll get the audio soon of the first part of this. And I can tell you this was off prompter. I'll bet you this was off prompter. Go ahead. What is the printed?

PAT: He said ‑‑ let's see. We need a mop with cleaning up ‑‑ When I’m busy, and Nancy’s busy, with a mop cleaning up somebody else’s mess, we don’t want somebody sitting back saying, ‘you’re not holding the mop the right way’ … ‘you’re not mopping fast enough’ … ‘that’s a socialist mop. Grab a mop; we need help.

GLENN: Okay. So that's the first thing was, that's a socialist ‑‑ we don't need people sitting around saying, that's a socialist mop, first. Now, the night I say I'm tired and I take down the person who has paid with your tax dollars to monitor my show, monitor Fox and take us apart, on the same day that I say I'm tired but we'll make it, the same day that he sends a message to the left, you tell me if this just is ‑‑ this is, you know, meaningless.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Let me tell you, those folks who are trying to stand in the way of progress, they're all ‑‑ let me tell you: I'm just getting started. I don't quit. I'm not tired. I'm just getting started.

GLENN: I'm telling you.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: No, but I think it is important for those folks to understand I'm just ready to go. I am ‑‑ we're just going to keep on going.

GLENN: I'm telling you, I'm telling you. Look, I don't think ‑‑ and I wouldn't have believed this a year ago because I wouldn't have, I wouldn't have thought twice about an Anita Dunn story in the Washington Post in the Style section. I didn't know how the media worked. I didn't know how the White House worked. I didn't know all of this stuff. You know, five years ago, no idea. A year ago? Figuring it out. Now, I got 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

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.
