GLENN: So the Huffington Post story which the president recommends, the new conservatives are true believers in the one right way and Democrats rarely agree on which way is the best way to go, but we can all agree that Fox News is a bad influence on America. It is time now to pop the tea baggers' favorite balloon.

With that in mind, this writer from the Los Angeles Times, a publisher and the editor in chief of the now defunct Air America and writer for the Huffington Post says, "With that in mind, I hereby offer to negotiate a $100,000 payday to the person who will come forward with a sex tape or phone records or anything else that succeeds in removing Glenn Beck from the public eye forever. I am not offering the cash myself but I will broker the deal and/or raise the money for what you bring to the table, but it better be good. If you have the goods or you want to contribute to the slush fund to buy more takedowns, contact us here."

STU: This is a rerun of what Keith Olbermann did on his website and then eventually pulled back from. But this is where they go when they can't debate, they just have to go to this nonsense.

GLENN: Now, if they will do $250,000, I may make a sex tape because no one will watch it.

STU: No one.

GLENN: Because no one wants to see me have sex.

STU: No.

GLENN: And I could get $250,000.

PAT: Yeah. Well

GLENN: That's good, isn't it?

PAT: Really? For a quarter of a million?

GLENN: Yeah. My wife, Tania won't do it.

STU: You mean just do it at all? Nothing to do with the sex thing?

GLENN: No, not even with a video camera. She just is like...

PAT: (Laughing). I think our wives are sharing notes.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: "No, thank you."

GLENN: Come on, you can have a slice of me. (Making disgusting sounds). All I can just hear is... (making barfing noises). Once in a while if we decide, you know she just says, can you hold my hair over the toilet? Just hold my hair for a little while

PAT: So they're pretty into the debate.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: The diversity, I think, of the public

GLENN: I think--

PAT: Of the public airwaves.

GLENN: I think so.

STU: That's tolerant, tolerant of other opinions.

PAT: And diverse.

GLENN: It is tolerant. I like the way they have told me the way my faith treats women. I think that is I think that's fantastic.

PAT: Which they know nothing about, quite honestly.

GLENN: No, I think that's fantastic.

PAT: Yeah, it is.

GLENN: I think that shows how open and honest and

PAT: And how bigoted.

GLENN: How bigoted these people are.

PAT: You've got to believe that they are so supportive of the Muslim mosque at Ground Zero, it's interesting that they would have a different opinion about Mormons.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And their stance on women, that's really fascinating to me. I'll bet you the same guy is all over the Ground Zero mosque. I'll bet you he's all over Islam.

GLENN: You know what? Why don't you look into that, okay?

PAT: Let's look into that.

GLENN: Why don't you look into that.

PAT: I think that's a good idea.

GLENN: Because that's fantastic. And I think it's great to offer a payday. Now, I want you to know that there isn't any sex tape out there. And if there was, you wouldn't want to see it. Phone records, that sounds almost illegal, doesn't it?

PAT: Sure does.

GLENN: Getting somebody's phone records?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Maybe that's why he says he's not offering to pay himself. He's just brokering the deal.

PAT: Whose money I wonder could he use potentially? I wonder whose money, if it's not his own money.

GLENN: Well, nobody involved at the Huffington Post would know anything about, like, Soros money.

PAT: No, no.


PAT: They would know nothing about that.

GLENN: But I know that they will get a ton of people to offer their money. While we raise money for the troops, they are raising money for takedowns of people like me. And the reason why I share that with you is because these are the kinds of people that you are battling against. And this is why I have told you in the past, look, I'm not ashamed of anything I have done in the last ten years. You go back ten, fifteen, twenty years, whoa, was I a dirt bag. But in the last ten years, I got nothing to hide. And, you know, if you want to waste your time doing that, that's fine. Whatever would come your way, gang, in the last ten years, it will be a lie. But that's okay. Because that was the point of the rally this weekend. It's not me. It's you. You do it. You continue to pick up your stick and do the right thing. You lead the charge.

Critical Race Theory: A special brand of evil


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.

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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
