Glenn not radical enough?

GLENN: Line 4 with Steve in Mesa. Hello, Steve.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Good. Go ahead.

CALLER: Well, you inspired me to start learning my history and I started with the Constitution and I'm reading the book The Politically incorrect Guide to the Constitution. And the one thing that jumped out at me when I read this is that there was a debate by our founders on whether to have a national government which is top down, you know, based on the British model or a bottom up version of the government called a federal government where the states gave the rights, you know, bottom up to the federal government. We have and they agreed to have a federal government where the states retained the rights and gave the federal government very limited rights. In fact, the Bill of Rights was first rejected by the founders because they said the federal government has no power anyway. You know, we wrote out a couple of detailed powers that the federal government has. So you don't need a Bill of Rights. It's limited in the first place. But thankfully they said, no, no, that's not good enough. The cleanest form of government is the government that is closest to the people. That's what the founders wanted. So the local government, the state government was where all the power was because the people could control it. At the federal level you no longer can control the power because it's not close to the people, hence we have morphed into a national government. Where I say, Glenn, you are not radical enough because we're not finding the next president that will give the power out of Washington back to the states. Everybody we're talking about still wants to take control of the federal government or the national government I should say now and say what to do.

GLENN: Okay. Steve, hang on just a second. America, the reason why I took Steve's call is because I knew, my phone screener just up above here says, Glenn, you're not radical enough. So I knew he was going to get to that point. But Steve, did you know this about the federal government, how long ago? When did you start learning this?

CALLER: Couple of days ago?

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: I mean, I had a general idea, but

GLENN: Steve, did you think that I was radical enough two days ago?

CALLER: Yeah, I did.

GLENN: Yeah, okay. But now that you're learning history, you are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute! We are way behind!

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: Steve, what you do with your history, what you do with the things that you, you know, that you learn is up to you because there shouldn't be a giant control. I'm not a leader. I'm not a guy who's out here saying, hey, vote for me or anything like that. I'm a guy who is just like you. I just happened to start earlier than two weeks ago. I'm discovering a lot of this stuff for the first time as well. And what I learned last year, what I really came when I figured it out and I knew what was happening in Washington, that's when I knew you'll never beat this. If you try to beat it through politicians and through parties. You will only beat this if you educate the American people. Because then these things become self evident. We have to restore, restore. Well, how do you restore something? I want to explain that at the top of next hour because up on one of the windows in my office is a whole thing that I wrote, when was it, in June, July? I wrote this whole thing out. I came in one day and I wanted to be able to see it all the time and I don't have a blackboard in my office. I just have windows, and there's a lot of writing on my windows. And so I took an erasable marker and I started writing down restoration. It's what led me to say we must do 8/28. And I want to share that with you at the top of the hour because you will see how simple it becomes and how everybody else is going to take you right down the same path that we keep going over and over again and nothing will change. There must be a fundamental restoration to avoid a fundamental transformation.

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

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.

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

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.
