Glenn Beck: Is Obama a conspiracy theorist?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Right now all around this country.

GLENN: Country.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: There are groups with harmless sounding names like Americans For Prosperity who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates, all across the country. And they don't have to say who exactly the Americans For Prosperity are.

PAT: No.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: You don't know if it's a foreign controlled.

PAT: No.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: You don't know if it's a big oil company.

PAT: No.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Or a big bank.

PAT: I mean, they could be anybody. How does this guy, how does he think he could get away with this when he's got so many there are so many leftist organizations from, you know

GLENN: Because he has the press. When you have organizations like the Tides Foundation and Media Matters and moveon.org and the Apollo Alliance and I mean

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: We can name a hundred of them. SEIU, AFL CIO, you've got these organizations that are pumping it out, Media Matters, moveon.org, pumping it out to the press, then pumping it out to active college students. There's the key, active college students are using all of the new media.

STU: As specifically underscored in that Weather Underground manifesto we talked about. That's exactly what they talked about.

GLENN: Right. Then you have, then you have the unions which are pumping it through the body of, what is that, 10% of the American population are union members? I mean, I can't even go buy a firehouse now. Because the unions have been turned against me on, you know, the firemen's unions

STU: The firemen's unions have been turned against you?



Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Extreme broadcast, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...

GLENN: Oh, yeah, big time. Big time.

STU: Because I mean, every union member that I speak with isn't influenced by their leadership.

GLENN: I hope that's true.

STU: And I think that regular people

GLENN: I don't have a problem with the regular people. I don't have a problem with the union members. I have a problem with the union leaders, the nation, too.

STU: It's a problem with the leaders. But again this is one of many groups that have one specific goal with you right now which is fill the space. There's a decent amount of people still in America that haven't made up their mind on you, you know, for or against.

GLENN: I find that hard to believe.

STU: It is hard to believe, but it's true and, you know, a lot of people don't pay attention and they have to get this pumped out all the time. There's a race of the undecideds, and they sit there and they peck away all the time in a quantity sort of way, not quality. They don't go for quality attacks. It's just quantity.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Have you noticed? For instance, like Media Matters, that's not even reflected I mean, it's always been sketchy. But now it's almost like, Glenn Beck is a Martian.

STU: Yeah, they don't even make an effort anymore.

GLENN: And there will be like four of them that come out.

STU: They have a quota every day to come out with 20 stories about you. I mean, it doesn't matter. They just pick up a sentence and say "Baselessly" next to it. Glenn Beck baselessly says something that we don't need to describe because you you're not going to read the context anyway. That's essentially every headline from these people at this point, and that's their goal is to fill, you know, the space around you with as much negativity as possible so it hopefully influences people who don't matter.

GLENN: You get 10% of the undecideds in the country who just don't pay attention, they don't know who Media Matters is, they don't know that it's all George Soros, they don't know all of this stuff. And so they say, oh, yeah, he's a racist.

STU: Perfect example. The group that started running negative ads about your religion, remember a couple of weeks ago, we were on the road, they were talking about how you equal Hitler, you say Jesus equals Hitler and all this other stuff.

GLENN: Do you have it, Pat? This is Soros, this is Soros money.

STU: Well, but the name of the group is fantastic. It's exactly what Obama's talking about. Faith in Public Life. Well, that sounds fantastic. Everybody loves faith.

GLENN: And you don't know where the money's coming from.

STU: Yeah, where's that money coming from, exactly.

PAT: Wasn't it George Soros money? Wasn't he running the ads?

GLENN: Well, it was George Soros for the parent company, I think, or the parent group. See, this is what they do.

PAT: Launder money.

GLENN: They launder everything. They launder people and money. And they will make one group and then if you figure out that that group's bad, that group just spins off into another group and another group and another group. This is why it sounds like a conspiracy theory when you talk about like the Tides Foundation because it's intentionally set up so complex. Remember when we first found Tides and I had a guy who was an organizational expert --what he does is he goes into companies like IBM and he says, how does the power flow. And, they will say, well, it goes from me to Bob to Ben, and then he studies it. And he's like, no, that's not the power flow. Here's why your company's all screwed up because your power is you don't know what's even going on in your own company. We had him study Tides for about two months and he kept coming back and I mean, the blood was drained out of his face. And he was like, look, I grew up in the Sixties, you know. He said, I'm part of this with this SDS stuff. He said, I remember all these guys. He said, I always thought they were a joke. He said, my gosh, look at this. He said, and it is so complex that no one will ever be able to explain it. It's intentional. It's intentional.

So I guess what you would have to do if you are a listener and a fan is you need to fill

PAT: With positivity. With the truth really.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I mean, just fill it with the truth.

GLENN: See, we're in a race against time. We really are. And it's not enough just to know it and tell your friends, because of the new media that is out. You've got to if you're youth, you've got to make the best use of the new media. You've got to get onto Facebook and Twitter and you've got to push out the truth on the other side. Forget about them. Don't make it about them. Make it about the truth about what is really going on. There's no need to tear them down.

STU: Yeah, and I know you are speaking about the issues here but if I could, I think it's also specifically about you, about Glenn Beck. Because the bottom line is people are spreading lies about you all the time and it's up to, our listeners and the people who know your character and have listened to you for a hundred million hours over the past ten years that they can come out there and say the truth about you, that you are speaking the truth, that these things are taken out of context. I think that's important as well.

GLENN: One of the things I like the most is I've seen on the Internet people just, you know, they get into bash sessions. And don't bash. Don't bash. If they are going to get into a bash session, just walk away from it. There's no good except contention. There's no good that comes out of contention. So get out just get away from it. The best thing I like when people are doing is just saying specifically, give me specifics. Give me specifics. Because they never can. Because that 10 to 30% is just being filled up with people who are just like, he's a racist, he's a bigot, he hates homosexuals, he hates he hates nonhomosexuals. He hates the sun.

STU: The sun? Who's anti sun?

PAT: I haven't seen that ad.

GLENN: You will. Right now -- let me say this: I hate the sun. Now media, Media Matters will come out with a deal, "Glenn Beck baselessly said he hates the sun."

PAT: Why does Glenn Beck hate the sun ?

GLENN: And you will hear people now say, "The guy hates the sun! He's crazy!"

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.
