GLENN: Here is George Bernard Shaw, probably the most famous Fabian

socialist, what we would call a progressive here in America.

SHAW: You must all know half a dozen people at least who are no use in this

world, who are more trouble than they are worth. Just put them there and say

Sir, or Madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence? If you

can't justify your existence, if you're not pulling your weight, and since you

won't, if you're not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more,

then, clearly, we cannot use the organizations of our society for the purpose of

keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us and it can't be of very

much use to yourself.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. So, he's saying here we must all know people that, you know,

are a burden to society and just put them in front and say justify your life and

if they can't justify what they do for society, well, then we just will have to

kill them. We don't you don't your life has no purpose to us. Does it's cold and

calculating as someone saying I could put a pillow over the face of a child so,

who are these Fabian socialists? Fabian socialists will make you believe that,

oh, well, that's old stuff, just exactly the way the progressives do now. They

dismiss their history, but can you tell me, can a bad can a bad tree bear good

fruit? Can a seed of can could the Nazis, could could Stalin grow anything that

is good? Could a seed that comes from Stalin grow anything good? Could it?

Philosophically I don't think so. I don't think so. The progressives and the

Fabian socialists want to deny or distance themselves, all the while Hillary

Clinton says I'm an early more than, early 20th century American progressive.

That's who George Bernard Shaw was hanging out with and they had the same

elitist kind of ideas. It is where it is where the idea of eugenics, breed the

perfect race, breed a better voter. So, here's the Fabian socialists, their

plan. These are just their these are just their goals and, again, there's no

Star Chamber here. These are all stated.

No. 1, a strong, centralized government. Do you agree with that? No. 2, a

powerful executive at the expense of Congress and the judicial. No. 3,

government controlled banking, credit, and securities exchange. Do you agree

with these so far? How many ask if you agree with them and then ask how many

have been done. No. 4, government control over employment. No. 5, unemployment

insurance and old age pensions. No. 6, universal medical care, food, and

universal housing programs. By the way, did I tell you in an unrelated move that

Fannie and Freddie, the government, will be underwriting 98% of all loans this

year and they're about to stop all foreclosures. Anyway, I don't know what the

universal housing program here in the Fabian socialist made me think of that,

but No. 7, access to unlimited government borrowing. No. 8, a managed monetary

system. No. 9, government control over foreign aid. No. 10, government control

over all natural energy sources, transportation, and agricultural production.

No. 11, government regulation of labor. No. 12 I find this one fascinating youth

camps devoted to health discipline, community service, and idealogical teaching

consistent with those of the authorities. Who was it that said we should have a

youth oh, I remember. It was Andy Stern recently. Hey, wait a minute. Andy Stern

I know is a progressive in Workers of the World Unite and I know that Richard

Trumpka has been speaking at the Fabian socialist. I wonder no. I'm sure it's a

coincidence. Andy Stern, oh, and the Center For American Progress, John Podesta

and George Soros. Hum. Anyway, George Soros is American Center For American

Progress had this idea that Andy Stern came up with all by himself in complete

complete coincidence. He was talking about we should have 15 to 24 year olds do

community service and we could pay them for it and we'll create a million and a

half jobs overnight. No. 13, heavy progressive taxation.

Have these been done? If they're not finished yet, they're pretty darn close.

So, now who are the world leaders, because, remember, as the world goes into

chaos, who are the world leaders?

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
