GLENN: Kids, I want you to listen carefully to the dangers of marijuana.

KING: Willie took part in great benefit for 9/11 victims and their families. He sang America the Beautiful. I don't think anyone ever sang it better, but he's questioned the official story. What prompted you to look into this from another angle?

WILLIE NELSON: Well, I'm just logic. I've seen buildings implode before. Just saw the Texas stadium implode just a couple of days ago. And these two buildings imploded, and the one next to it, nothing hit it. No plane hit the one next to it. It just decided to fall on its own. So naturally I have questions about

KING: You think something was done inside?


KING: But I'm told the reason it imploded was so much heat from above and so much fuel on the jets.

PAT: I like this.

KING: But that caused it to go down rather than over.

WILLIE NELSON: Never before has a building collapsed because it was hit by an airplane, a steel building, never.

PAT: Then check the follow-up by Larry. This is a fairly strong one.

KING: Has any building been hit by a 747, though?

WILLIE NELSON: I'm sure they have.

PAT: I'm sure they have.

GLENN: I'm sure they have. Kids, don't... do... drugs. Willie Nelson participated in the making of this ad. What a dope.

PAT: It's just excruciating.

GLENN: Let me just ask this. I love the, "Steel doesn't melt." Then how do you make it! Okay, so I love this theory. Let's just go on this one. I've talked to demolition experts. I've had conversations on this one with Marcus Luttrell, Navy SEAL, good, you know, a guy who could get it done. If there's anything that needs to get done, I'd be calling Marcus Luttrell. Marcus Luttrell, his response was, "That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard." He said, "We're really good at what we do. Do you know how many people we'd have to kill?"

Willie Nelson talks about 9/11

PAT: Oh, everybody. They would have to kill thousands.

GLENN: He said there would have been a pile of janitors.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: A pile of janitors because somebody would see us putting plastiques in that building everywhere and somebody would walk in and go, what the hell are you doing? Poof! I mean, there would be a pile of janitors! Do you know how long it would take to wire that building? Willie Nelson, "I've seen buildings implode." Have you seen them get them ready for implosion?

PAT: Do you know how long that takes?

GLENN: Do you know how long that takes?

PAT: Do you know what a precision thing that is? And then the beauty of this theory, too, is on the one hand, Bush is a total and complete idiot. On the other hand, such a crappy diabolical genius that he pulled the demolition off flawlessly!


PAT: On cue!

GLENN: I think there is a possibility and no one has explored this, that the Death Star does exist.

PAT: Oh? Seriously?

GLENN: Did you see the end of Star Wars 3?

PAT: Yes, I did.

GLENN: Okay, you saw that one?

PAT: I did.

GLENN: Do you remember before all the little bears started dancing and stuff and having fireworks?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Do you remember when they turned that thing on and it was like... and it started

PAT: The Death Star?

GLENN: The Death Star, and they just imploded that planet?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Remember?

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: What was the planet?

PAT: Wait, they didn't implode the planet, though? They exploded it.

GLENN: No, it went into I've seen a lot of planets explode. That was an implosion.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: Okay?

PAT: All right. So that was an inside job on the planet?

GLENN: That was an inside job on the planet. Because the Death Star didn't work. It was a laser! Have you seen lasers? I've seen laser pointers before.

PAT: I have, too.

GLENN: If they don't put them in your eye?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's light. That's all that is. And that was the same thing

PAT: They can't blow up a planet?

GLENN: No! That was an inside job on the planet.

PAT: Luke? You think it was Luke?

GLENN: I don't know who it was.

PAT: The little fuzzy bear creature?

GLENN: I don't know who it was, but I believe it may have been, may have been Dick Cheney.

PAT: In Star Wars?

GLENN: No, not in Star Wars. I'm talking about the real implosion of the planet.

PAT: Oh, okay. All right.

GLENN: Planets just don't implode.

PAT: I'm not sure that was

GLENN: I mean, there's no heat down there.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: I heard from Al Gore that they are like over two million degrees inside of planets. Hello? It's made of solid steel.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

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?
