Glenn Beck: People flooding DC early



From the Producers Blog


Glenn visits people waiting in line at the Kennedy Center on Thursday night (more)

GLENN: From Washington D.C., 25 hours away now from Restoring Honor, what a wild 24 hours this has been since last we met. Things here in Washington are getting quite bizarre and quite intense, and intense in a good way, bizarre in a just, I don't even know how to explain it. Just a, it's weird. History is going to be made this weekend in Washington. We've been telling you that we don't know how many people are coming. We have built it and I think the area that we have JumboTrons and sound in is, if it fills in, is between 450,000 and 500,000, and we you know, we've been expecting, I don't even know, maybe 100,000. We said when we first started if we could get, you know, 100,000, that would be great. Who knows. Maybe we get 25,000. But the press has gone from it's only going to be a handful of people to 100,000 earlier this week, and the press here in Washington, I don't know if you are seeing it in outside of Washington, but the press here in Washington is now predicting a crowd of possibly 500,000 people. So you can put that into perspective, the largest gathering on the mall of all time was 700, outside of Obama, 700?

STU: Yeah, non I think, and I have this list somewhere, people of noninaugurations because those are usually the biggest, and I think Obama was the biggest of the biggest.

GLENN: And I think the other one was like the end of a war or something like that, wasn't it, and it was 700,000? Something like that. Inaugurations are the biggest, but Obama's was said to be three million. Then they downgraded it to what was it? How did they go?

PAT: Two million.

GLENN: Two million.

PAT: Then it was 1.7 million. And now everybody says it was about a million.

GLENN: About a million. There were 1600 buses with I don't remember the names of the bus companies, but they judge crowds in advance by buses. For Barack Obama the inauguration and the balls and everything else, there were 1,000 1600 of these buses. I think 3,000 total with all of the bus companies, but the one that they always, you know, go to and say this bus company is the biggest and blah, blah blah, and they judge and project the crowds, there were 1600 buses. There are the last I heard, there were about 1100 buses coming for this one. If those numbers stay stable, if that means anything, and I don't think it necessarily does, but this is the way they project crowds, it is going to be an enormous crowd and gathering tomorrow, enormous. It is there was an alert today from metro police which I'm told they only do like on storms and inaugurations that the subway system is going to be stressed and taxed and slowed, and expect long delays, expect massive traffic and streets to be closed, et cetera, et cetera. Which again I there is all, this is all just stuff that people who live here and work in the security world or the police world or whatever, they are the ones who have told me these things. So I don't know how accurate these things are. I did see that memo that went out.

PAT: There's a lot of people, though, in this town already.

GLENN: My gosh.

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.
