GLENN: Here's the thing. I said on stage last week that I would like to meet

Chris Christie. Then they started writing stories, did Chris Christie snub Glenn

Beck? No, no. He's in New Jersey. He doesn't stand at the roadway, you know,

like, Hey, welcome to New Jersey. I'm Chris Christie. We didn't call. We didn't

ask. I said that on stage. So, then he makes some comment, somebody asks him,

where is he?

PAT:/STU: I don't know.

GLENN: Iowa? And here's what happened.

CHRISTIE: I heard that Glenn wants to meet me. I'm in New Jersey. You know,

listen. I feel really lucky that I have so many people out there who are saying

that my policies are good policies and, you know, all of those people deserve to

have my gratitude and he among others does

VOICE: You'll be fine if we acknowledge the fact that you didn't answer that

question?

CHRISTIE: As long as you report accurately my answer.

GLENN: Okay.

VOICE: That conversation is your business.

GLENN: Yeah. Chris Christie, you would be the dumbest person on the planet to

meet with me. You would be and he's not. He answered that exactly right. I don't

know. Maybe he doesn't want to meet with me. Maybe he does. Maybe he doesn't

find it a relative question. I'm thinking that's probably

STU: I think that

GLENN: We've got people working on that day and night. They're trying to

connect us. I mean, that's ridiculous

STU: I feel like it's the reporter trying to get him to, you know, admit to

something or anger you or cause some controversy.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: When I saw that I was thinking if this guy distance to do the policies

and put in place the policies he's doing, he can call us anything he wants.

He can



TheBlaze: We all know that Glenn has a bit of a man-crush on the New

Jersey governor, but perhaps the feeling isn’t mutual?

GLENN: Oh, no, no.

STU: He can throw things at you as you drive by New Jersey.

GLENN: I'm going to go a step further. Chris Christie, you may like me; you

may not like me. You may trust me; you may not trust me. You know, I read

someplace that he doesn't want to come on the show because I'm

unpredictable. Yes, I am.

STU: Uh huh.

GLENN: I call a spade a spade. If I think that you're bluffing, if I think

you're lying, oh, I'll say it right to your face. So, I don't think he's

afraid of me. I mean, he's not he's in New Jersey taking on the unions. He's

not afraid to come on the show. But he may not like me. And that is totally

fine. I've heard there are some people in America that don't like me. I

haven't met anybody, but I've heard that rumor going around

STU: Seems impossible.

GLENN: Right. So, I don't really care. Chris, just in case you do like me or

you appreciate, you know, what we do or whatever, you have my permission to

rip me to shreds. You can rip me to shreds. If it helps you, continue to do

the hard work and have a spine, you throw me on the funeral pyre anytime you

want. I hate that guy. Go ahead. If it helps keep you safe, if it helps keep

you doing I want you to know, the minute you start doing weasely things, oh,

I come out for you like a box of rocks and this offer is over.

STU: Does a box of rocks chase how would a box of rocks come after you? Is

there any way, Pat, that you see that occurring? It doesn't seem like an

analogy that

GLENN: Let's say, let's see. Could I give you an example? Could we work it

out?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I would like you to go get a box of rocks and brings it me. Okay? And

then, Stu, I want you to go down on the sidewalk.

STU: Yes.

Glenn: And I'll show you

STU: Uh huh

GLENN: How a box of rocks

STU: Uh huh.

GLENN: Shall can come after you

STU: I'm starting to see it a little bit.

GLENN: There you go.

STU: If he's weasely, you're going to come after him.

GLENN: If he's weasely, I'm coming after him and that's fine. But if he

remains doing the right thing for the country, I don't care what anybody

says about me. You would be stupid to meet with me because what will they

do? They would be I mean, you could meet you could meet here. You could have

a seance with all of all of the craziest people out there and O'Donnell

could use witch craft and bring Saul Alinsky back to life. You could be at

that seance bringing him to life and he could just come out and go, we must

destroy the planet and all that live on it, and you could say, yes, yes,

hang on. I'm writing that down. It could all be captured on tape. That would

get less press than you meeting with me where you say close the door and I

say, I hate your guts.

PAT: Because the way the seance would be presented is, oh, you're bringing

up say answers. What kind of conspiracy kook are you?

GLENN: No. They would actually report it this way: Of course O'Donnell was

there.

STU: (Laughter.)

GLENN: All right. So, you know, Chris, bash me all you want. You didn't, but

whatever.

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?
