Netroots Nation Targets Beck





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

Netroots held a big progressive conference in Las Vegas over the weekend and you were a major topic. Again, when they mention me, they're really talking about you. Without you, I wouldn't merit a single thought from these people.

But first, let's start with former Democrat chairman Howard Dean, who was on with Chris Wallace yesterday. Listen to this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HOWARD DEAN, FORMER DNC CHAIRMAN: Let's just be blunt about this. I don't think Newt Gingrich is a racist and you're certainly not a racist, but I think Fox News did something that was absolutely racist.

CHRIS WALLACE, ANCHOR: The video had never played on the Fox News Channel before the White House fired her. It was on Andrew Breitbart, biggovernment.com, we're not responsible for them. I agree with you it was out of context...

(CROSSTALK)

DEAN: And it was about to go — and it was...

WALLACE: But it wasn't on Fox News, so maybe you shouldn't be using the racist phrase either.

DEAN: And it — and it — and it was about to go — and it was about to go on Glenn Beck, which is what the administration was afraid of.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The video was about to go on Glenn Beck? Are we in the "Minority Report" movie now? Does Howard Dean have a trio of albinos bathing in milk with electrodes attached to their heads showing him the future on computer screens? I'm surprised a squad of commandoes didn't bust into the studio last Monday to stop me from playing the video I was "about to" play.

Unfortunately, for them, I didn’t play it. And when I finally did approximately 26 hours after she was fired — the next night — I took Shirley Sherrod's side. Now Howard, that's kind of a pesky, inconvenient, little fact there.

But no one is letting the facts get in the way of their Tom Cruise, “Minority Report”, chicken little racist charges. Because the problem is that you have gotten under their skin to such a degree they can't get you out of their heads.

Here was James Rucker from Color of Change speaking at Netroots:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JAMES RUCKER, COLOR OF CHANGE CO-FOUNDER: Unfortunately, Glenn Beck is in my brain all the time. It's bad for your health — psychological health.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Gee, that's too bad, James. I haven't spent a single moment thinking about you and my business has never been more successful. We're having our best year of all time. But Rucker knows that we're exposing the progressive agenda to the light of day and he doesn't like it:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

RUCKER: No one knew what Tides was until Glenn Beck started — I mean people outside of our political world knew what Tides was until they were on Glenn Beck's blackboard.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Why would you want the American people to know about Tides? Aren't they helping people? Aren't they working for "social justice?" Isn't that what all of your progressive friends are working towards?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

RUCKER: One of the campaigns we ran last year, Color of Change, was basically going after Glenn Beck's advertisers where we thankfully stripped him of normal brands, companies you'd recognize. But the reality is — and we knew this — we weren't trying to — well, we were trying to, actually, we were trying to marginalize Beck. We didn't expect we would get him off the air. We wanted to make him untouchable to a certain degree.

Being on the other side of Beck it can be kind of a stressful thing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Gosh James, I'm sorry. I'm sure that barely being mentioned on my show is much more stressful than four advisers to the president of the United States running smear and boycott campaigns against you. I can't imagine how hard one or two mentions on my show has been for you.

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Reality has come undone and it's doing our country a disservice. The more time we spend on them, the more we become them. America deserves better than this. We are better than this. This is politics of the past without even the past, except without the real past.

As I said, the tape of Shirley Sherrod was not going to be on my show. When it was — 24 hours later — I supported her. Cries of racism without an event?

So what is the real issue here? Because it's not racism. The issue is choice.

We must choose. Do we choose those who create fear, limit choices, lie, cheat and steal? Do we stand with ACORN, communist revolutionaries, Black Panthers, union thugs or the troops, cops, your house of worship, small businessmen and women, moms and dads who fear that America's best days are behind her? Because the powerful forces of greed and corruption are blocking the road to individual freedom, individual faith, individual responsibility, inventiveness and volunteerism.

We have made this choice over and over again. In the 18th Century, we said no to a king that was in bed with special interests and didn't care about the people. In the 1850s, the most unlikely of heroes stood with people of faith to right the wrongs of the past. When both parties were corrupted, Abraham Lincoln created a new one, the Republican Party — a name that had meaning back then. They tried to make us choose again during Reconstruction and we almost failed again under Wilson and FDR. Each time they made us choose they weakened the system. In the 1960s they stole our grandparents' children and those who had the most and had done the least began to conspire on how to destroy our children's inheritance.

Here we stand at that epic choice: Do we let them finally conquer the American spirit or do we stand again and shake off the ever-forming chains? Reclaim our rightful place by picking up our God-given responsibilities to ensure that man continues his crawl from the swamp to the stars.

Stand, for you are man — and what is more, you are an American.

Let them cry racism. I ask you to stand and cry: freedom. All men, all races, all creeds: Freedom. Freedom from want, freedom of religion, of speech. Freedom from a monolithic and faceless bureaucracy that make your choice for you.

Many slave owners put a happy face on taking a man’s freedom away. But as Frederick Douglass understood, a kind and benevolent slave owner is still a slave owner. We solved this fundamental question a hundred years ago, but the evils of man have conspired to forge a new chain, one of help and handouts and health care, but a chain nonetheless.

This is your choice: Kiss the hand that feeds you or fight for your right to eat, sleep, work, worship as you wish. Man must speak while man can speak.

I have learned a lot in the last 12 months. We do not need to call people names, nor do we have to, their words are evidence enough. They cannot make the argument in the open for they know no man of any color would choose to be enslaved. I do not think those in power and those who seek even more power are racists, as I have come to understand that racism is too small of a word. I believe they will enslave any man — no matter the color, no matter the party.

In the end, if America chooses this new path, all knees shall bend and all heads will bow to a new earthly king.

This story that we are seeing unfold, is a story as old as man himself. To make this about me or the president, is to mock the point in history at which we find ourselves at. We are small and insignificant. The choice is monumental and universal.

And once again we are asked to choose. I believe that Americans will again draw the line between them and those who currently hold the keys that control the force of the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth behind them — those who would be our kings, those who would blaspheme our sacred American ideals while they cry racism.

Americans, stand in the fire of God's truth and once again cry freedom.

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.
