GLENN: I just oh. I don't even know where to begin. I really the world is upside from Times Square, which always makes sense, in Midtown Manhattan, the third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. Hello, America. I'm glad you're here.

Maybe you can explain this to me. Clyburn now says Republicans are aiding and abetting terrorists against the Democrats. I mean do we have that video? Can you pull that video for me, please, Pat? Clyburn is now saying we're aiding and abetting terrorism against the Democrats. Barack Obama has just broken his biggest campaign promise. What was his biggest campaign promise? That we are going for change, the politics of the past, the politics of fear are over. If you're the President of the United States and you've just passed this health care, you've got to stop the debate on it immediately. You've got to stop all talk. So, what do you do? You immediately go for: These people are hate mongers, these people are racists, these people are violent, and anybody who speaks out on it is part of that category. He promised that he would never use the politics of fear.

George Bush they accused of using Osama Bin Laden. May I just point out here that Osama Bin Laden in a new tape has threatened to kill Americans, but we are now focusing on Clyburn saying Republicans are aiding and abetting terrorism against the Democrats. Well, there's a lot of Americans that think that this administration and this Congress are aiding and abetting actual terrorists, by releasing them into the streets, by tying our hands, but nobody wants to cover that. Nobody wants to cover that. Here's Clyburn.

CLYBURN: This stuff is beyond the pale and they need to stop this because, I can tell you, I've seen how these things escalate.

GLENN: Oh, stop it.

CLYBURN: People out there in the streets get their signals or what they think are their signals from the people in positions like we hold and so if we don't disown that and go, get our people to move beyond that

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop! What then if that is true, what exactly were the signals that the President of the United States was sending and people like Nancy Pelosi was sending when they were taking down the Tea Party goers? What were the signals? Words have consequences, I think, is what he's saying. It's incredible, what these people are doing. It is incredible! And I'm sorry. I'm a little passionate about this because I'm a little passionate about this. Let's just put it this way: The FBI has been a part of my life for a few months, trying to protect me and my children. Beyond that, I can't give you any information. So, don't tell me about threats, sir. Don't tell me about violence, sir. You're bringing these things up and saying, We had to contact the FBI and they had to investigate. Try it the other way around, when the FBI calls you! When you get a phone call from the FBI and they say, Investigators need to meet with you, there's nothing, nothing that feels better.

PAT: And it's not due to anything they're investigating about you.

GLENN: About you.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: When you have people threaten to do unbelievable things to your children, you better know what you believe and believe me, it's a time when you feel very alone, because some of us aren't Congress, some of us don't have the authority to do anything about it. We just hope and pray and while we could escalate things, we do not. We try to defuse.

Please don't talk to me about the brick through your window. The only thing that I have seen Dan, is that the list of this is a partial list, a partial list, and I would just like to give this to you. But the media will never report on this. The media, they'll spin it CNN was doing more today on the violence of the right. Why would they do that? A, to set you up; B, to stop you from talking about health care and what are you going to do to stop it. They are setting the trap to make anybody who is against this bill an enemy of the State, a traitor, a terrorist, a violent killer.

Let me ask you this: The tea parties have been peaceful and, yet, they're dangerous killers. Peaceful but, yet, dangerous. Les look at the bricks through the window. When there's been actual violence, the democratic headquarters, this is the first brick that went through the window. In Denver, there was a brick that went through the window. Who did it? It was a lefty, democratic operative that threw a brick through the democratic window. It was a lefty that did it! Where was the press on the liberal who bit off a man's finger in a health care argument? Bit his finger off. That wasn't somebody on the right. That was somebody on the left. How about the media on all of the damage done by the G 20 protesters? That wasn't a protest from the right. That was a protest from the left. How about the stories of the radio tour that was torn down, blown up, in Seattle? That was done by the left. How about the Hummers, because they get bad gas mileage? That's from the left. How about Amy Bishop, who shot coworkers? She was from the left, an Obama fan. How about the SEIU thugs that beat down opponents at health care rallies? Intimidation? You want intimidation? How about that? How about the SEIU members that the media decided not to cover and you have it on tape as they are beating down a black man, calling him the N word?! How about Ann Coulter?

There's a headline today, Beck's War, FOX host responds to passage of health care reform with violent rhetoric. This is what I said: The battle was lost but the war is not over. That's my violent rhetoric? That's my violent rhetoric? Now I can't even use cliches. Do you see the message being sent here? Shut up, because we will get you. And let me just say this: You may get me, but you will not stop us. We will speak in do you know what? Do you know what, honestly? If I were in Cuba and Chai rounded me up, I would hope that my last words against that firing squad or against that wall for speaking out would not be "Please, please, please don't kill me," but "Long live the republic."

You may destroy me, but you will have to kill me to stop me from speaking out. You will not stop Americans from defending their liberty. When I say defending liberty, as I have said for a very long time, Gandhi was right. Martin Luther King was right. Peace will solve this. The other side may send attack dogs. While Martin Luther King had to face German shepherds, we have to face SEIU and leftist thugs. That's okay. We will continue to stand. We will continue to march forward. We will not pick up a weapon because our greatest weapon will be God. Ann Coulter had a building in Canada surrounded by people with sticks and stones but, yet, the mainstream media doesn't want to, doesn't want to highlight that. They want the name calling highlighted. A great philosopher once said sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. The violence of the words "Kill the bill," right now the FBI has bill, just a bill on Capitol Hill. You know, the bill that we used to watch on Saturday mornings. He's in protective custody now. We don't know exactly why people are threatening to kill the cartoon bill, but that kind of rhetoric just has to stop.

If speaking out is dangerous, then, yes, I'm a dangerous man. If speaking your mind in America is somehow or another a problem, then I'm a troublemaker. But if you want to paint the Tea Party goes as violent, seeing all the violence so far not all of it, but most have been from the thugs on the left, the verifiable violence on the left. If you want to look at the violence of the Tea Party goers where I can't find it I hear naughty names man, we would make really bad revolutionaries. Do you know why you don't want violence? Because if that's the violence you do, you suck. Look at the violence of the left. They seem to have a head start. Let's keep them, keep them, the leaders in anything despicable. It is not in the best interest of the republic and I'm sorry to lecture you on that. I don't mean to you know that. You are not violent.

We need, quite honestly, the Lord more than ever before in this country and he will come to our defense. He will be there with us. He will allow us to get through anything and to take any insults, take any blows to the body if we just ask him for forgiveness for our sloppiness on what we've done to his freedoms. We were supposed to be guardians of it, and we've done a very bad job. Beg him for forgiveness and ask for his help and guidance. He will part the seas, not for us but for future generations because freedom belongs to him and he has been gracious enough to allow us to drink from its cup. It will not be lost.

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.
