Glenn Beck: What tomorrow is all about

Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

When you get there please reach out to the people, get to know them, make new friends, hug each other. I went this morning early and it was just about 6:00 when I walked down into the crowd that was already there and have staked out their areas. You cannot sleep there. But as long as you are awake, they can't remove you, either. But if you can't roll a sleeping bag out or anything else, but people are already there and they were there last night and it was about 6:00 there was a crowd of, oh, in this one corner of the mall there was, oh, I don't know, about 40 people there. And I went over to this one corner and I said hello to them and we, at sunrise, said a prayer together. And I urge you to do that and just to make sure that there is a, a veil of good feelings and protection and honor and character and love that is, I just that place is so sacred. It is such an amazing place. It is Abraham Lincoln, the Vietnam Memorial, the Korean War Memorial. At the end of the reflecting pool the World War II Memorial. And then looming just past that is the George Washington Monument. It is truly an amazing place, and I want you to feel that and I want you to make sure it's not a place for just remember this and please spread this in the crowd. It's called the reflecting pool, not because it reflects the image of George Washington, because it reflects all of it and we are supposed to go to it and reflect.

Tomorrow that's what this is about really, reflection of who we are, where we are, where we're going, what each of us have to do. How do we get our way out of this? And it's not politics, gang. It's not politics. Who can we look to? One of the inspirations for this event was my son. He's 5. And he didn't know what a hero was, a real hero. He thought a hero had to have a cape or could fly. He didn't know what a real hero was. It's time we find heroes again. And we know them in the military, but where else can we find them? Where else? You can't believe anybody anymore. You can't believe the media, you can't believe the president. Please, when I was young, you couldn't believe Nixon. Can you believe them, can you believe congress. Can you believe the Republicans or the Democrats? Can you believe Halliburton or GE? Who do you trust? Do you trust your teachers in schools anymore? Good portion of the population doesn't trust our firemen. Growing number of people don't trust our military. My gosh, we don't trust our judicial system. We don't trust our history books. What is it we trust? Who is it we believe in? Don't ever put your trust in a human being. You can trust them, you can hope, but understand they are all flawed. Every single one, just like you. They are no better or no worse than you.

The thing that you may not have in common is some people try and some people do not. That's the point. Do we try to be better? Do we recognize our mistakes? Do we try to be better? Do we only focus on our scars? I've been cut. I've been hurt. I've been burned.

My father told me, my father told me you can either concentrate on all the things that have happened to you or you can ask why have they happened to me and what am I supposed to do with it. And I can guarantee you what you're supposed to do with it is not hate. It's not to become bitter. It's to find you know what one of my goals was 15 years ago? Just to love people.

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?
