Glenn Beck: Joltin' Harry Reid's idiocy streak continues




Harry Reid: "I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican."

GLENN: Here's Harry Reid. He says I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage that could be a Republican. It's weird, Harry. You should get out more because the approval ratings for Barack Obama with Hispanics, dropping like a rock.

STU: In fact, his entire decline this year in approval is basically from Hispanics. Whites and blacks have remained almost exactly equal.

GLENN: That's an amazing stat. May I just point out that it could be that those who have come from other countries, like Venezuela, I was with somebody this weekend and she was from Venezuela and she wept about her family and what has happened in Venezuela with her family now.

PAT: For joy? She wept for joy because Hugo is doing such great things down there for her family?

GLENN: No. May I give you ‑‑

PAT: May I play ‑‑ here's what Senator Reid said.

GLENN: Oh. Do you have it? All right. Good.

REID: I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican. Okay? Do I need to say more?

PAT: No. You don't need to say any more.

GLENN: You don't even need to say that.

PAT: And was this woman you were talking to from Venezuela a Democrat or ‑‑

GLENN: I didn't ask. I know she's not an Obama supporter because through her tears, she was, like, Lord help us. Oh, Lord help us. It is Chavez. All the stuff that they did. It's Chavez. It's the beginning of Chavez. Oh, Lord, help her. So, I'm not sure. I didn't ask her for her party affiliation at that point.

STU: Could she be possibly be part of a 28 point drop in approval ratings in Hispanics for Barack Obama since midlast year?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: Do you think that that's possible?

GLENN: It's kind of crazy to think that people who have come from corrupt or Marxist countries recognize and see the writing on the wall and see what ‑‑ what this soldier who called us about an hour ago said, I was in Iraq and I thought, when I got on the plane, thank heavens that my country isn't this corrupt and then I got here and then I went, oh, no. It could be that once you've seen it elsewhere ‑‑

STU: Could it be that maybe someone from a regime like you're talking about values law and order so when they see something like SB 1070 they may actually not ‑‑

GLENN: Media Matters, may I just point out ‑‑ hang on just a second. You can go on. I just want to point out ‑‑ I want to help them.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Because they're spending so much of George Soros' money.

STU: It's being wasted.

GLENN: I know. Media Matters, I just want to point out, he used the word "regime"

STU: I was talking about Hugo Chavez as you were talking about.

GLENN: Yeah, ‑‑ I think I heard the implied Obama is Hitler.

STU: You think you heard the implied Obama ‑‑

GLENN: Close enough. I'm trying to help Media Matters.

STU: That's pretty close.

PAT: All the headline needs to say, anyway, Stu Burguiere baselessly uses the word regime.

GLENN: Thank you. That's good stuff. Whoa, whoa, whoa. He is not rounding people up and slaughtering them. Why are you saying this?

PAT: Wow, Stu.

GLENN: Stu, stop it.

STU: I don't understand.

PAT: Holy cow. That's too far.

STU: What did I do?

GLENN: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I don't care ‑‑

PAT: Oh what, a racist!

GLENN: Now you're saying that you have evidence that he's building gas chambers?

PAT: Oh, my.

STU: I didn't say that at all.

GLENN: I hear one more word and I'll have to terminate you.

STU: But I'm just trying to ‑‑

GLENN: One more word ‑‑

PAT: Why would you start screaming about communism now?

STU: I didn't even say the word communism.

PAT: Nazis, commies.

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.
