GLENN: So it's always a pleasure turning on my computer in the morning and seeing all the things that have been written about me and this time drawn about me.

PAT: And I'll tell you that is not a flattering drawing of you, either.

GLENN: You don't think so?

PAT: No.

STU: You are not that portly. I would actually say you are thinner in real life than that picture.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Which is not something I say normally.

GLENN: No, it's not.

PAT: No, it really isn't. It really isn't.

GLENN: Forget the ghosts and goblins. Why not dress up as someone truly scary this year. Our annual collection of Halloween masks highlights some of the year's most frightening faces. This is from Forbes. And the 100 or the top ten scariest people of 2009, I'm number one.

PAT: Wow. Who's number two?

GLENN: Number two is Rod Blagojevich.

PAT: You are scarier than Rod Blagojevich?

GLENN: Apparently, yeah. We have Steve Forbes on?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Steve? How are you?

FORBES: Well, better than you.

GLENN: Forbes is making me the number one scariest man in America?

FORBES: Well, hey, you know, people always want to be at the top of our list. We just happened to pick the wrong list.

GLENN: Not this one. I mean, isn't it am I spreading too many free market principles?

FORBES: It was a mis it was a miscommunication. We were going to put you on the most admired, most beloved, most reasonable, most enlightened list.

GLENN: Right, right.

FORBES: But we figured if we did that, it would yeah, we wanted to put a mask on you so you wouldn't get killed by the liberals.

GLENN: I mean, here's the competition: Rod Blagojevich, Bernie Madoff, Michael Jackson, David Letterman, Michael Moore, Roman Polanski. You've got a rapist who is nine slots lower than I am.

PAT: That's not good.

GLENN: Not good.

PAT: That seems bad.

GLENN: That's not good. That's not good.

FORBES: Well, as they say, people love to be on our list.

GLENN: No.

FORBES: We just happen, we got you on the wrong list.

GLENN: Wrong list.

FORBES: We normally would put you on the 400 list but we respect your privacy.

GLENN: That's right. So Steve, let me ask you real quick. We were talk

FORBES: By the way, this does show, even though I make you look like, you know, a true liberal, my conservatism, it shows we believe in diversity here.

GLENN: Yes, it does.

FORBES: The universe still has its job.

GLENN: Yes, it does. We were just talking about I've only got two minutes with you. We were just talking about George Soros. He is starting yet another he is going to dump another $50 million into a new antifree market think tank. Steve, help me out with the thinking. Do you know George?

FORBES: I've met him.

GLENN: Okay.

FORBES: But we're not friends.

GLENN: Help me I can imagine. Help me out with the thinking of people who become billionaires, make $9 billion last year in his hedge fund and yet he wants to close the door on everybody else. How does this work?

FORBES: Well, it's typical human nature. Once you've arrived, you want not you yourself but once the

GLENN: Well, I'm on the number one in Forbes, I'm on that list.

FORBES: Well, that's to keep the IRS away. You know, we want to keep the liberals away.

GLENN: Right.

FORBES: But, and in terms of people like George Soros, it gets to one of the phenomenons and that is why do rich people hate capitalism. And they have this misconception that capitalism is about greed where it's about serving the needs and wants of others and a lot of these people feel once they make it, they feel guilty about it and they want to show, oh, no, we're human, we're liberal, we're kind, we don't believe in this dog eat dog blah, blah blah which is a caricature as we know anyway and so they turn against it. And so Soros is not alone in this. Many people who make a turn against it. And even the phrases that we use. For example, people say, well, when you make it, you should give back. Well, you should give.

GLENN: It shouldn't be taken.

FORBES: But give back sounds like you took something that didn't belong to you.

GLENN: Steve Forbes, thanks.


 

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.
