Glenn Beck: Introducing The Blaze



What is TheBlaze.com? Glenn explains...

GLENN: Now, this is from the front page of TheBlaze. It's about cellphones for illegals. Explain what this is.

PAT: These are two professors who have come up with a program. And first of all, they are talking about how we fixed the United States of America. And then the video goes into their little program here where they are installing these GPS chips in cellphones and handing them out to illegal aliens. This has been going on through the Mexican government for a while, but this is the first I've heard where our

GLENN: Our U.S. tax dollars are going into it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, I want you to listen to this audio and you can see the video at TheBlaze.com, which is my new news and opinion site that I hope you will make as a regular stop for news and opinion. It is it's the Huffington Post you know, it's a very it's a baby version of that at this point because they spent $56 million on that. But this is a baby version of that and what we hope to grow into the common sense version of the Huffington Post. If you are going to do the Huffington Post, you've got to have somebody that's standing up against it. And so that's what we have launched today as our first day up and running. So check it out please at TheBlaze.com. But here is this audio from the University of California San Diego. These first two voices that you will hear are professors, and they talk about the United States. And then they talk about what their plan is. Here it is.

PAT: And here, it's coming.

GLENN: Here it comes.

PAT: This is Mike (inaudible).

VOICE: I think the way to fix the country is to dissolve it. We could either give our land back to the indigenous people that we stole it from or we could just wait for the economic collapse and build community based alternatives and infrastructures to replace.

GLENN: There you go.

PAT: Okay. So there's your two options. You can either give it back to the people we stole it from, or we just wait for the collapse and then start all over again with the communist system.

STU: One of the two. Just pick either one. They are open minded. It's one of the two.

PAT: So it's not like they are offering options. We've got a choice.

STU: Pro choice.

PAT: They are all about choice. You can choose give it back or, you know, collapse it.

GLENN: Sounds crazy.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Sounds crazy but not in the world of academia.

PAT: Wow. This is Ricardo Dominguez.

DOMINGUEZ: and that is safe passage. And so the question is to move the kind of anchor of civil disobedience within the kind of overfetish sized notion of a single sovereignty, of a nation

GLENN: Overfetished sized.

DOMINGUEZ: or look at the larger transtrack, transsociety that is emerging and that also should have a type of global rights.

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop, stop. So we're talking about global rights. And what was the global trans, what was it, TransAmerica?

PAT: The transtrack.

GLENN: No, the trans was it TransAmerica highway or something? Isn't that what

PAT: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Notice he is using that same language. That there is an emerging TransAmerica, trans, whatever, however he phrased that. But basically he's talking about, again, just like the other guy, he's saying dissolve sovereignty. It's just going to become one. And it's emerging and that's the direction that we're going. Now what is that next?

PAT: So now they talk about Dominguez and Cárdenas are offering cheap phones to include maps, water spots and a compass to help illegals to cross the border.

GLENN: And they are doing it with your tax dollars. These are two professors at the University of California San Diego.

PAT: Now, the first one talks about the program and then the second one talks about how they are funding this and it is unbelievable.

REPORTER: Downloaded into Motorola phones with GPS, an application meant to help illegal immigrants safely make their way into the U.S.

VOICE: It's really just designed for you to turn it on and the compass would show you where is the nearest safety site.

VOICE: The tool consists of an inexpensive cellphone with a global positioning satellite chip, a GPS chip, and a custom piece of software on which accesses the phone's ability to receive GPS information without need to send out data which may allow the user to be located and without needing phone service.

GLENN: I mean, that's amazing.

PAT: Now this is Professor Dominguez.

VOICE: Right, because I'm paid so much money. And so how much of that money

PAT: And he's about to brag about getting tenure through doing this program and using taxpayer funds.

VOICE: Which might be taxpayers' money is actually going, between 2007 and 2009 when I was when I earned tenure in part based on this project, it was given awards, it was, you know, performed as a legitimate condition of research.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Jeez.

PAT: Also included on the

VOICE: In addition to the navigational capabilities is a tool, we have added another module to the software in order to shift the dialogue further towards one of hospitality. As the user walks with the tool after a given interval, a few lines of poetry will begin to play.

GLENN: Oh, dear God.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Oh, jeez. Oh, jeez!

PAT: Now, see, that seals the deal for me.

GLENN: Help! Help!

PAT: I didn't know that was included.

GLENN: Help!

STU: What's that, it reminds me of the Al Gore poem.

PAT: Almost.

GLENN: We have somehow or another slipped into an insane world. They are using taxpayer monies to help illegals come in to help collapse the system and they are doing it with poetry!

STU: It's always good when you can work not one but two C words into your poetry.

PAT: Yes, yes.

STU: One is not enough. We can know that.

PAT: That's just the talent of this writer, this particular professor who I

GLENN: He's tenured.

PAT: You know, he's tenured and I wonder if he is an English professor because that was a brilliant poem. And I think that will make the illegal aliens feel more hospitable once they sneak illegally into our country. And they are showing where the hot spots are and the safe spots and the water spots.

GLENN: Do you realize seriously do you realize what all of this means? I mean, our country is so far gone that it is going to take a true resetting of the system. It needs to be rebooted.

STU: You mean like you want it to collapse and we can either that or give it back to the people we stole it from?

GLENN: Well, I think it's going to collapse. It can't, it can't continue down this path. It can't. These systems are incompatible with each other. This is like running apple software, you know, on a Commodore 64 and then, you know, trying to jam a transistor radio into the little floppy disk drive. I mean, it doesn't none of the it doesn't work. They are not meant to go together. And you are going to destroy the entire thing. So, you know, this is why I've said, look, there's trouble coming. I mean, these people are intentionally trying to collapse the system and you are going to have to be a leader. We really, we really truly are

Somebody, I had dinner with somebody last night. My sister was in town and she brought a friend in and she said, you know, Glenn, I feel crazy. And I said, you do? She said, we live on a big farm and we're kind of secluded out in the middle of nowhere and she said, our friends have all started talking about, hey, if things happen, I have this skill and you have that skill and we should all get together because, you know, we have to put together a little community that would be able to survive. And I said, okay, tell me when the crazy part starts. She said, isn't that crazy? And I said, yeah. Yeah, it is nuts. It is nuts. Five years ago, two years ago. I think that's going to look completely sane in about a year. I think in a year from now you'll look at that and say, you know what, that's probably a good idea. I think you are still way ahead of the curve, and I hope you don't ever do it. I hope you don't ever need it. But is it insane to think how do we become self sufficient? How do we hold together our communities? No. No, not with people like this who are intentionally trying to collapse the system. No, I don't think so.

STU: Not to mention it's a good idea whether something bad happens.

GLENN: Or not.

STU: To be self sufficient is one of the defining American characteristics. Should be.

GLENN: You should be getting out of everything that you possibly can so you can be as self sufficient as you possibly can. The more control anyone has over your life, the harder it's going to be. That's just the way it is. That's just the way it is. You know, the more you and the more people you are going to be able to help.

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.

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."
