Elton John On His Charity Work: Government Should Be Doing Our Job For

Us But They’re Not

GLENN: All righty. Could we play, could we play Elton John and his latest

comment? I want you to understand that this is where the progressive left is,

and this explains everything. This is why we don't understand each other

anymore.

PAT: He's at his AIDS charity.

ELTON JOHN: I'm set up as charity so I can help people. I know a lot of

charities are set up by, you know, the Gates Foundation, the World Health

Organization, the Clinton Foundation because they want to help people. And it

seems that individuals are trying to help people, whereas government should be

doing this adjunct for us but unfortunately they are not. And so we have to step

up to the plate and try and do as much as we can.

PAT: Is that amazing?

GLENN: That -- that's the progressive understanding.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: The government --

PAT: It is.

GLENN: -- should be doing this, but we are going to have to help people now.

PAT: It is exactly upside down.

GLENN: Yes. Remember the inverted pyramid that I showed you before?

PAT: Yeah. Yes.

GLENN: I showed you -- I mean, that was part of the American Revival was the

inverted pyramid that they have inverted. They have made God almost nonexistent,

where that was the base of the pyramid before. Now government is the base.

Government used to be the point of the pyramid. Now it's the base and God used

to be the base and now it's the point. It's the smallest part.

PAT: It's incredible that this is everything, society's been completely turned

on its head.

GLENN: Upside down. Of course it has. Did you guys -- go ahead.

PAT: If you look at private donations, at individual donors, it is like ten

times what governments get.

GLENN: Of course it is.

PAT: Americans at least. I can't speak for the other countries because they are

not nearly as generous as Americans are. But Americans give about ten times the

aid.

GLENN: Look, this is not about charity. Understand that. The government, we all

think that it is really, really incompetent. No, it's not. It's not incompetent.

It is good at what it is actually trying to do and that is take the wealth from

the wealthy and give it to the poor. And give it to their own special interests

and their cronies. That's what this system is.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It is all on the -- the charitable thing is a front.

PAT: Absolutely.

STU: I would not say they are good at redistributing the wealth from the rich to

the poor even. I mean, they just give it, you're right, to the special interests

and things like that.

PAT: Yes.

STU: And you look at Elton here, here's a guy who's -- this is coming from I

think a good place. The sentiment here is good. Did he say, "I don't believe

that the government is working and I'm going to step in on my own."

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But he has the idea, as you said, Glenn, the pyramid is completely upside

down.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: And he doesn't even realize it.

 

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?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

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.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

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.
