Glenn Beck: Sharpton's dream -- more caskets?


Introducing the TheBlaze.com, a news and opinion site Glenn Beck.

GLENN: So TheBlaze, there's a couple of things on here that

PAT: If you are like me and you love audio and video, this is going to be one of your favorite websites because there's some great stuff on there. We've got a comparison on there right now from you know, because Al Sharpton keeps saying that you were disgracing the day. And then we look back at his rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial ten years ago.

GLENN: Okay. So we have that here. I also want to tell you, there's something else. Explicit poetry GPS phones help illegals. We have to play, we have to play this audio for you also, later. These are two University of California San Diego professors that are talking about, they got their tenure because they are helping dismantle the United States. They are helping illegals get across, they are changing chips in cellphones to help these illegals get across without being tracked, and it's all on taxpayer dime. And they got their tenure because of it. And you hear them say, both of them, the best way to solve America's problem is to collapse the system. I mean, it's incredible. It's absolutely incredible. And we have these two on tape, and you can find it at TheBlaze.com.

But the one you've been fascinated with in the last few minutes has been the Al Sharpton. And explain what we're going to hear?

PAT: This is Al today and ten years ago. Al Sharpton talking about the fact that this rally was going to disgrace the memory of Martin Luther King. And then it goes back. It flashes back. And there's a little brief. We'll try to tell you what's about to happen because then there's

GLENN: This is edited because there

PAT: It's edited. There's a harsh word in there and I just took it out. So

SHARPTON: We want to disgrace this day and we're not giving them this day. This is our day and we ain't giving it away.

PAT: Okay. And then this is Al Sharpton from ten years ago at the same place that we were Saturday.

SHARPTON: So get one of everything. Get one NAACP, one urban league, one SCLC, one nation of Islam, one Black Panther Party, one new Black Panther Party. Get one of everything and tell them let's build this monument.

SHABAZZ: We express solidarity with Reverend Sharpton

PAT: Here's Shabazz from the Black Panther party.

SHABAZZ: and other black leadership who are outraged at the attacks taking place against our people all over the country. But no matter how high you fly, no matter how high you think you have gone, it's still an actual fact that we are still treated as here in the hells of America, racism stinks rotten from the core to the ceiling of America today. Thirty seven years later, ladies and gentlemen of the black jury, I ask you, ladies and gentlemen of the black jury, 37 years later, how do you find white America on injustice and racism?

CROWD: Guilty.

PAT: Okay, so that was a disgrace, okay, that's content of character.

GLENN: We are gathered here today in a hallowed spot.

This is me, right?

PAT: A little different feel from Saturday, yeah.

GLENN: Here, Abraham Lincoln, a giant of an American, casting a shadow on all of us. We look to a giant for answers. Behind you, in front of me, the Washington Monument. We are, we are standing... we are standing amongst giants. And in between the reflecting pool. Why? Is it so we can say, "Wow, look how dirty it is." No. It's not just to reflect the monument. It is intended for us to reflect, to reflect on what that man meant and those men meant and those and those and that man meant and the man who stood down on those stairs and gave his life for everyone's right to have a dream, Martin Luther King! That's what the reflection is all about!

PAT: A little bit of a different feel.

STU: Yeah, which one

OLBERMANN: Is there an attempt in here to desecrate Dr. King's memory on what everybody stood for then, or is this just a publicity stunt by some sort of megalomaniac?

SHARPTON: Whether it's an attempt to do the desecration or whether it's a publicity stunt, it can desecrate it.

VOICE: We the New Black Panther party, our national chairman Khalid Abdul Muhammad have a black dream today. We have a black dream which is truly a vision. We have a black dream today of little black boys and little black girls joining hands with other black youth and black students to organize, stop the violence in our community and unite against a common enemy. We have a black dream today and a vision today of all of our people, black lawyers, black preachers, doctors, teachers, scientists, rap artists, gang members, all black people working for a common cause. We have a dream today, as I conclude, a black dream today of self defense.

GLENN: The police.

SHARPTON: Of self defense, in the face of racism, in the face of police brutality, in the face of overwhelming odds against us, we today have a vision of a black dream today, a black dream that when we see caskets rolling in the black community, that when we see caskets rolling and funerals in the black community that we will see caskets and funerals in the community of our enemy as well today.

PAT: Boy, that seems like a beautiful dream.

STU: Beautiful dream of police caskets?

PAT: Is to expound on police caskets

GLENN: Here's the thing.

PAT: on the Lincoln Memorial.

GLENN: Here's the thing.

PAT: That's nice.

GLENN: Concentrate on who you are. Because you are not going to change anybody else. The way to change other people and you are seeing it already look. Look to the Los Angeles Times and Jonah Goldberg's article. Look to the Wall Street Journal and the article about this audience and saying look at who these people are. Look at how peaceful it was. There was not a single arrest. Look at these people. Don't you understand? You've walked through a gateway. You provided a miracle. The miracle. Remember I said expect miracles? You have put them into a position to where people can A/B and say this is their crowd, this is what they believe and this is what you believe. This is what we believe. This is who we are. This is the way we behaved, this is the way the G 20 people behave. Don't you see? The battle is already won. The battle has been won. Now all you have to do is just stay the course and strengthen yourself. Because they are a hornet's nest. We have just kicked over a hornet's nest. And they are mad as hell. And they are going to try to come and sting and sting and sting and sting. Don't worry about it. The battle has already been won. It's only a matter of time. They will collapse on themselves. They will. The truth will prevail. It's only a matter of time. The problem with this is that we have trouble on the horizon economically. We have real trouble. This administration is passing maybe another stimulus bill, a small business bill. They have passed all kinds of unions bills. They are trapping us. But that's okay as well. Because they will be trapped themselves. They have defined themselves. You are not stupid. Trust the American people. If the American people trust in God, in God we trust, if the American people have honor and integrity and we are people of faith. Look, we're not talking about a small population here. We're talking about the majority of Americans. It is up to you to get this word out. It is up to you to change your life and lead by example. It is up to you to teach your children the difference between right and wrong and that they have to take responsibility. And the best way to teach your children how to take responsibility is for you to take responsibility yourself. Don't allow anyone to excuse your actions. Don't excuse your actions yourself. Admit your mistakes, correct your errors, be honest in your life, and the truth shall set you free. The battle is already won. We won it last Saturday! Now just live it! Just live it. And you win. It's just accepting your role in history. You win. That doesn't mean party. That means free men.

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?
