GLENN: I've not had one. Stu has been talking about the Milky Way hot chocolate.

STU: Here's what's amazing. I made a prediction last hour for this year and it's already happened. I'm one for one.

GLENN: Smells good.

STU: Does smell good. I would say that it's, we calculated it as 800% chocolate and 300% caramel.

GLENN: That's pretty good.

STU: It is good, isn't it?

GLENN: It is good.

STU: Dunkin' Donuts is doing a good job with their hot chocolate flavors.

GLENN: Dunkin' Donuts is for real people. When I used to drink coffee, I hated Starbucks.

STU: Really?

GLENN: I hated Starbucks. I'm not saying all those frufru things up on the counter. Shut up. I want a cup of coffee, please. Dunkin' Donuts I thought was the best coffee out there.

STU: Yeah, a lot of people feel that way. That's definitely our staff's, you know, mainstream --

GLENN: Is it?

STU: Yeah, I would say.

GLENN: You know what? Because we're real people.

STU: I wouldn't say that but I would say that we have the coffee of real people.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: We're totally --

GLENN: Okay. Take money out of it.

STU: I don't mean that, even in that way. I just mean that, you know, most of us in some way are insane or bizarre. But the overall thing is that doesn't really affect coffee. I think like -- because I like the Milky Way hot chocolate. They also have white hot chocolate at Dunkin' Donuts.

GLENN: This pisses me off, and I'm sorry. This pisses me off. On the top of Dunkin' Donuts' coffee lid.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Caution, hot. No crap! Really? You think so?

STU: You don't think the word in the title of the product is enough of a warning?

GLENN: Hot chocolate!

STU: Like coffee, maybe you can make the argument that people might not know coffee is hot. There is ice coffee.

GLENN: Ice coffee.

STU: Right.

GLENN: This is hot chocolate!

STU: But over at, like, Starbucks they have peppermint hot chocolate.

GLENN: I may have to, I may have to sample.

STU: You want me to send --

GLENN: I may have to test the peppermint hot chocolate.

STU: It is very tasty.

GLENN: Is it?

STU: I will say that I will be getting one of them later tonight. I already had a Milky Way hot chocolate.

GLENN: I don't know. See, though, again that's going the frufru route.

STU: It's a little uppity but it's very tasty.

GLENN: It is peppermint. It's a little -- caramel, ooh. Even though caramel is -- if you say it's caramel hot chocolate, then it's okay. If it's caramel hot chocolate, it would be sold at Starbucks.

STU: See this is, I think, though -- I mean, essentially what you're drinking right now is caramel hot chocolate but they were smart enough to name -- we need drinks named after candy bars. There's just not enough of them. How can we drink a candy bar more often is one of the main goals of this society.

GLENN: May I just point out that this program costs about $10,000 a minute. So anyway, you were saying?

STU: Just saying that Milky Way hot chocolate -- and this -- we should be charging for this but we're not. But it's very good. The white hot chocolate is tasty, too. Have you tried that, the white hot chocolate?

GLENN: I don't like white chocolate.

STU: I wouldn't say that you have to. It doesn't necessarily -- I would say it's almost in a marshmallow hot chocolate sort of direction. It's not quite white hot chocolate. It's pretty tasty, though.

GLENN: I don't like Milky Way bars generally speaking.

STU: Really? I don't understand how that's possible.

GLENN: Wait, wait, not Milky Way. Yeah, Milky Way. Or is it Three Musketeers? Which one has that crap in the middle of it?

STU: Well, they both have knew GATT, of course, they both have that. The Milky Way has caramel. Caramel.

GLENN: I think I can tolerate the caramel, caramel. I can tolerate that. I'm not a big fan of it but I can tolerate it. It makes the nougat okay.

STU: I love the nougat. Nougat is my favorite part.

GLENN: I don't even know what it is.

STU: It's the base of the candy bar.

GLENN: What is it?

STU: It's nougat.

GLENN: What is it made of?

STU: What kind of question is that? I mean --

GLENN: It could be stuff that they go to, like, shelters all across the country and they're like, when they fall asleep, take the stuff in between their toes and jam it into a candy bar. You don't know.

STU: If it tastes like that, I don't care. Who cares. I think it honestly is -- okay, I'm going to just throw it out there. I think it's loosely marshmallow-based perhaps like a chocolaty marshmallow?

GLENN: Look it up, Dan.

STU: What is nougat? I think it's more of a --

GLENN: It's gross.

STU: What are you talking about?

GLENN: A Three Musketeers bar? Makes me want to vomit.

STU: What are you talking about?

GLENN: It does. It's the only candy bar?

STU: I'll rip one of those you have. Sarah's going to be walking up and down the stairs all day today with the way we're talking about food.

GLENN: This is good and everything. Kind of wearing thin on me.

STU: It's tough to --

GLENN: It's very intense.

STU: Yeah, that's a very, very good word. It's like you can do a small but when you get into mediums and larges, it gets hard he. It's a little rich.

GLENN: Unless I had, like, a vial of cream. If you just take, like, wash it down with some heavy cream.

STU: And you know what's shocking because I was looking at the prediction sheet for 2008 from Fusion. They actually predict you're going to gain weight this year.

GLENN: For 2008 or for last year?

STU: Well, that wouldn't be a prediction. That would be a --

GLENN: That would just be an accurate statement, be an accurate statement.

STU: That would be exercising your eyes.

GLENN: Right now as I'm on -- you know, because we have the cameras here in the studio and the people at the Time-Warner Center are watching and as they're watching me drink the hot chocolate from Dunkin' Donuts, Conway Cliff is weeping. There are several executives right now at the Time-Warner Center going, why (crying), why.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.
