Glenn Beck: Not 'useful'? Progressives want you dead




Revolutionary Holocaust airs Friday, January 22 at 5p ET...

GLENN: My rule is never talk down to the audience. You have to explain it in different ways to where it makes sense because things sometimes can be so complex, but never talk down to the audience. They will watch. If you don't treat them like nincompoops, they will watch and they'll digest. They're starving for it. I need to tell the history, the true history, the unspoken, untaught, unseen history of communism, Marxism, progressivism, things that you have never seen before. George Bernard Shaw is loved. He's a progressive hero. He's a fantastic playwright. He was a cold blooded killer. I mean, he talked about, we found film of him that I don't believe has ever been seen before that he says, look, I don't really have a problem with these people. He's a progressive. "I don't really have a problem with these people. I don't want to kill people." But I mean, some of them just aren't useful. They have to die. Whoa. I'm going to show you stuff from the Soviet Union that has been erased in our history books, and you have to ask yourself why. I will show you footage, film that came out of the old KGB archives and you are just not going to see any place else. They have been buried. And because the progressives don't want the history of the Soviet Union really understood, it's buried. We went to, what was his name, Viktor Yushchenko? He's the guy who was poisoned by the KGB, remember, and he has pockmarks all over his face? We did it he's the president of the Ukraine. We did a sit down interview with him for this over in the Ukraine. He talks about the history that's lost and erased. We'll show you Castro the way only people who lived through Castro in Cuba remember. We're going to show you Che and only the survivors of Che. They are the only ones that really remember. That is the slogan really or the place setting that I have set for the table for this show and for me this year and that is remember, on Friday I want you to watch. You are going to have to watch. An executive came to me on well, last night and said, Glenn, I watched the first fifteen minutes of this show three times, and I think I have to go back and watch it again. I learned something new each time I watched it. I watched it three times in a row to be able to digest it. His concern was that it's too much meat. It's just too much. All of this stuff is new and you will be like, whoa, whoa, wait, what? And I said, I have one hour to be able to show America what they haven't seen ever. He said, okay, well, I know how you treat your audience and they've always been remarkable. TiVo this show. Because you're going to watch it three times. Watch it first for yourself. Then maybe watch it a couple more times for yourself. Then watch it with your children. Make sure your children understand. They will ask you, I promise you, they will ask you what the person who has their master's in history who is fact checking this every step of the way, she said to me last week, I'm really angry. And when I asked why, she said, because I have my master's in history and I didn't learn any of this, and I want to know why. It's not Glenn's history. It's film that you've never seen before. Your children or grandchildren will never, ever wear a Che T shirt ever again. And by the way, one last thought. When I say have your kids watch it, I don't mean the little ones. This is disturbing. It is truly disturbing. But equally as disturbing as I mean, Pat, when we first started going over some of the film, how long did it take you to get some of those images and some of those things? Some of the things that we learned about Marx and what he had said and some of the I mean, how long did that take you before it was it's one of those things that will not sit with you right.

PAT: Yeah. Took days. And as bad a guy as we thought Karl Marx was, I think we found out he was

GLENN: Worse.

PAT: worse.

GLENN: Much, much worse. As bad as you think Stalin was, much, much worse. You don't know anything about Che. Unbelievably bad. Unbelievably bad. It's unsettling. But I will tell you this. What will last with you is you'll have a lasting impression of, okay, I see where all this leads. But what will really last with you is, my gosh, if I didn't know this about our enemies, what haven't they taught us about us. This is the progressive education that you have received. This is the beginning of the antidote for that. Make a choice because once your eyes are opened, you can't close them again.

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.
