Glenn Beck: The 223 year problem?

The Obama National Anthem...

GLENN: Now, there's a couple of other things that have happened and Stu, can you find the audio of Andy Stern with Maria Bartiromo? How do you say that?

STU: Yeah, that's what I'm going to go with.

GLENN: Would you see if you can find video? He was recently on and he was saying, I'm getting a lot of backlash or, you know, I get a lot of heat from Glenn Beck because I said worker of the world unite, but that's ‑‑ Maria, that's just where we are right now. We're going into a global economy, and the best way for redistributive wealth is to use the unions on a global scale.

STU: (Laughing). So basically ‑‑

GLENN: Okay. What does Maria say, who, I love Maria. What does Maria say? Something like, so tell me what you think about the new healthcare bill. Excuse me?

PAT: A followup does not exist.

GLENN: There's no followup. He said it I believe twice, he talked about redistributive wealth twice and there was no followup.

STU: Is it possible at this point that she's ‑‑ I think we're all at that point, what another communist reference; all right, next question.

GLENN: Yeah, we're at that point. Nobody is ‑‑ I don't even think they're listening anymore.

PAT: Again it's the window you talked about where it's gone so far to the left now. Now we're talking new world order. I guess it's okay.

GLENN: Wait, wait. Wait, wait. We are talking new world order.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Listen to this from CNBC and listen to what this man says. Now, this is a guest. He's a hedge fund manager out of, what, Seattle?

PAT: Seattle.

GLENN: Asian hedge fund. And he's talking about the destruction of the dollar, but it goes so much more. And listen to the followup. Listen to the followup reporting here. Go ahead.

REPORTER: We're back with Damon Vickers, chief investment officer, Nine Points Capital Partners live out of Seattle, Washington. You guys are a hedge fund and what you guys basically do is you try and catch breaks, either the up or down side. Apparently with oil, also with gold. You've done the timing pretty right, got in just as it started to, oil up past $75, gold past $1,000. Are you going to sit on those positions then?

VICKERS: Yeah. Yeah, for sure. Yeah, this is ‑‑ you know, this is ‑‑ I mean, you can think a lot about it and you can, you know, one day and, you know, have all these vacillations psychologically but, you know, this is the time to, you know, to play pingpong, to, you know, pick up, you know, get involved in model‑making or something ridiculous. I mean, this is the time where you make money, where the trend develops. And so there's really not a lot to do with it. I mean, oil looks higher, gold looks higher, currencies look weaker, all for the reasons that we talked about before. I mean, you've got huge wage disparities. I don't know how that inevitably resolves itself. It may resolve itself in some type of a global currency crisis. And then if the global currency crisis unfolds, then inevitably you get, I guess an alignment under a global world government.

GLENN: What?

VICKERS: A new global currency and a new world order.

PAT: Listen to the followup. Wow.

VICKERS: So we may be moving towards that.

REPORTER: Talk to me a little bit more about this currency crisis you see erupting. What is that about? What's going to happen to the dollar?

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop! We're going to have a new global government, a new global currency and a new world order. Hmmm.

PAT: Tell me about K‑Mart. What do the prospects for K‑Mart look like?

GLENN: What are you talking about?

PAT: Have you had any pie today?

GLENN: You know what I think what we have is we have the possibility of big stainless steel guillotines for anybody who won't take the mark of the beast.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: That's interesting. So have you looked at all into the dynamics of Microsoft with their shedding 800 jobs? What are you talking about, man!

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

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.
