Glenn Beck: Notice the similarities

GLENN: I'm reading the Constitution of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA. I mean, who hasn't done that?

PAT: Three times last week alone.

GLENN: I think I'm going to tweet this because this is truly amazing. If you look at it and you'll see how many things are right in line with I mean, listen to this. The world cries out today for radical fundamental change to emancipate humanity. We live on a planet where tens of millions of people died in the two world wars in the 20th century and other wars since. There were large swaths of humanity today continue to be caught up in brutal and destructive wars. We live in a world where millions die from preventable diseases and still more face hunger as a daily fact of life. We're locked inside a worldwide economic system that dispenses crumbs and extends privileges to the relatively small number while forcing billions to seek desperately for work that no more often than not numbs the mind, crushes the spirit, destroys the body. An economic system which has devastated and spoiled nature itself and now has put the future of human life into question. We walk through our days in a world where lives of countless children are ground up and destroyed, some as child laborers, even outright slaves. Others as victims of poverty and humility, humiliation. Their potential crush, their lives cut short. Everywhere women, one half of humanity still face the gauntlet of rape and abuse. People whose sexual orientation or identity is different from the dominant norms in society. This is particularly and acutely so where this is in some significant way conflicts with the prevailing patriarchal sexual relations. Tens of millions of people in this country face a life of grinding exploitation and bitter desperation. Many of them have been driven here from countries which have been plundered by U.S. capital only to find themselves dubbed illegal and forced into the shadows by Gestapo like persecution.

PAT: Holy cow. Wow.

GLENN: Especially black people, as well as other peoples of color and oppressed nationalities, great masses of people have been cast aside because they can no longer be profitably exploited. Instead of recognizing their humanity and unleashing their potential, this system has criminalized them. With one in nine young black men locked down in prison and with the black and Latino youth having to face harassment, brutality and the constant threat of death at the hands of the police whenever they walk out the door. Meanwhile, the apple pie racism of America festers and often boils over in old forms and new. On top of all that, this economic and social system forces everyone to look at and treat everyone as a potential competitor and antagonist, dog eat dog. "Look out for number one" are the true commandments of this society.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Those who try to make things better within the confines of this system find their efforts constantly frustrated, unable to get at the underlying problems. As a result, this alienation, this despair runs rampant and people feel as their lives are empty and meaningless. And for relief, either the mindless chase after even more commodities or the false fantasies of the consolation of religion.

PAT: Oh, boy.

GLENN: But the cruelest of all is the fact

PAT: Don't say it.

GLENN: that it doesn't have to be this way.

PAT: Oh, boy. Communism? Is that the answer?

GLENN: Well, communism, yeah, it's right, I mean, through the labor of vast numbers of people that these productive forces own and controlled by a handful of capitalist imperialist class, the imperialist private appropriation of socially produced wealth is backed up by law, by custom.

PAT: The bourgeoisie, if you will.

GLENN: By the armed forces of America.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: All these imperialists care about and all they can care about given the rules of their capitalist system as to the endless drive to accumulate profit and more profit.

PAT: Said it over and over again.

GLENN: The violent expansion and defense of the empire built to ensure that accumulation.

PAT: When will it stop? When?

GLENN: Well, if you look at, communism can be achieved only through revolution.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: So I'm just reading the highlights now.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: People are told to be realistic, to confine their aims at government reform.

PAT: Okay. But they shouldn't?

GLENN: But they are not going to be able to realize the true ideals of democracy, it won't work. Putting your hopes and efforts in that will only make it worse. It's a dead end.

PAT: And whenever I think of democracy, I always think communism. Don't you?

GLENN: I do.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So the new stage of communist revolution, it started in 1848, you know, but now it's been decades since they held any power in this country because we've been so concerned about labels.

PAT: Of course

GLENN: Good thing the labels are gone. If there is to be a revolution, there must be a revolutionary party.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: So there needs to be one party that says no exploitation or oppression.

PAT: Is that the Democrat Party?

GLENN: Hmmm?

PAT: Is that the Democrat Party? Did they make a recommendation here?

GLENN: Let me just say this. Let me just say this.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Making a revolution against the powerful and vicious enemy, it's what is going to have to happen to be able to have to create a whole new world without exploitation or oppression.

PAT: And again the powerful vicious enemy, that's rich people?

GLENN: Uh huh, uh huh, yeah.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: But that's what they are going to do, have a fundamental transformation, you know, to a world without exploitation or oppression.

PAT: Where have I heard that phrase before, fundamental transformation? Have I heard I mean, does that sound familiar to you?

GLENN: I put that in there.

PAT: Oh, did you?

GLENN: Yeah. The revolution requires leadership. It requires an organization with sweeping vision, scientific method to analyze reality and how to go about changing it and then serious discipline. An organization that can awaken and unleash the revolutionary potential of the masses of people, direct their outrage against a real enemy and loft their sights to the emancipation of all humanity. An organization that can chart the path through the extreme ups and downs, the dangerous twists and turns, the organization that is the revolutionary vanguard party. Only with an organization such as this can the masses rise to the historic challenges and win their emancipation. That's going to be

PAT: What a glorious day that will be, comrade.

GLENN: I think I'm going to tweet this today because I think you should read this because, wow, there's that's a I mean, it's amazing how many things I've seen before and heard.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Are for.

PAT: Are they actually calling for revolution in that? It kind of sounds like it from what you've read.

GLENN: Well, I think they mean a peaceful revolution.

PAT: Okay, good.

GLENN: They are not tea partiers. I don't think there are any communist tea partiers.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. And you should read the part about how the how you don't you must crush anyone that, you know, swerves out of the approved party line. You have to read that part. It's very good.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.
