GLENN: Okay. Let me give you the last story. Firestorm after Dems cut food stamps to bail out teachers. Now, go with me on this. I just said a half hour ago, I don't think I would buy the Robert Gibbs was a coordinated thing, but on the same day that Robert Gibbs just start swinging at the left is the same day that they and I looked at this story but I did not put them together until now, is the same day that the Democrats found $26 billion in food stamp money to give to the teachers. Now, let me read this. Some Democrats are upset and advocacy groups are outraged over the rating of the food stamp coverage to fund state a bailout that some call a gift to teachers and government union workers. House members convened Tuesday and passed a multi-billion dollar bailout bill for cash wrapped states we'll go into the top of the hour. It's outrageous. But the bill requires that $12 billion be stripped from the supplemental nutrition assistance program known as food stamps to help fund this new bill. First of all, it's a scam. That's not what happened. But I'll explain later.

But now let me just play this out. Van Jones meets with all the progressives and says, Hey, you guys have got to behave yourself, you know. You've got to this President's doing what he wants you know, what you want. And you just have to recognize that. And then Nancy Pelosi throws up and they throw Twinkies at her or whatever and then Van Jones at the end of the week says, you know, this has been a historic week. This President has decided to be truly a progressive. This was a turning point this week in this President's find. And then he goes on to say that you need to go out and do the things that you have to do to force this President to do the things he knows are right. Okay. What does that mean, exactly, except at the same time we started having the unions go marching out on the streets, we had ACORN whipping their people up in the democratic or students for a democratic society and talking to them about how death camps are coming and they're going to be rounding you up and you've got to be prepared and you've got to yada, yada, yada. So, whipping everybody up into a frenzy, I really think there's a possibility that this move was made because they can't get you to be violent, they can't get you to do the things that would force this President to do the things that he knows he must do. What are those things? So, on the same night that Robert Gibbs comes out and says, Hey, by the way, the people on the left, you stink, shave your armpits, ladies or whatever he said, and he went after them with an anvil, why would you do that when Van Jones and everybody else is trying to heal, he goes and now, it could be that he is stupid, but on the same day that they go after the food stamp program, which is a scam, by the way, but they go after the food stamp program, do you remember with the Tea Parties, do you remember how they just kept poking, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, trying to get us to react and I kept saying, don't react, don't react, they want. Look at them. They're just portion gasoline on us. Poke, poke, poke, poke. Isn't it strange, it seems like that's what they're doing now to the left, which makes Barack Obama look like he's more centrist, but, also, you're poking people who have a record of violence and taking to the streets and stirring up trouble. Hum. Hum. I wonder if there's anything there.

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?
