GLENN: I have to apologize to you. Last night I was doing the television show and I had moms from all over the area in the studio audience, and we had a conversation, a long converse afterwards about we were talking about inflation, and I don't know if anybody saw the program last night about inflation and food storage which, I mean, I honestly, I don't know I don't know how long, you know, the TV show can survive with the show that I'm with the show that I'm putting on every day now, and wait until you see next year. I can't imagine how long it can last just because I know what people are going to say about it and I know how the press is going to treat it and I know you know, I have no idea why anybody would watch it because it is so it's becoming more and more radical. For television, I should say. But we're having a conversation and when I asked on television last night about inflation, I asked them, I said, so you're all moms? You go out and you've seen the government says no inflation is happening. And they all laughed. And I said who thinks inflation is happening and who's seen it? And they all raised their hand. So we talked about it after the show a bit, and their concerns are the same as mine. Now, these are just moms who are out, and they're seeing it and they know. And one of them raises their hands and said, Glenn, tell me about the farm bill. And I said, quite honestly I'm looking into the farm bill, I haven't had a chance I don't know how many e mails I have sent off to my research staff: I've got to know about the farm bill, tell me about the farm bill. And I just, I haven't it's my fault. I haven't been on top of this thing because I'm working on 600 other projects. Overwhelm the system, if you will. And I come to you to apologize that I did not pay attention enough to this farm bill and get this research done fast enough, and last night I had our researchers working through the night and got a briefing about, what, 6:30 this morning on it and because last night cloture happened in the Senate. It has already passed the House and it is just, they voted to cut off debate yesterday in the Senate, and it passed with 70 votes in the Senate. It will pass in the Senate. They made some changes to it. It has to come back to the House. This is an extraordinarily, extraordinarily innocuous thousand page bill. It is all full of things that just have to happen just to keep your food safe. "In order to keep you safe, we just have to have a few more regulations, but that's it. Oh, this Death Star is fully operational."

It is something that you could read, and I have not read it but I have in fact, during the show I will get more of the summaries on it. My research staff says, Glenn, it is Cass Sunstein Central, it is completely fine. If you don't look at the government and say that there are revolutionaries in there, if you don't look at the country and say, hey, there's inflation out there, and you trust that everything is great, it's the Homeland Security bill. But there's nothing wrong with Homeland Security, is there? No, this is food patriot bill, that's all this is, the food PATRIOT Act. That's all it is. Aren't you a patriot? Don't you want safe food?

May I ask, why the rush? Oh, by the way, first of all, I believe, I believe we got healthcare at Christmastime, did we not? We got healthcare at Christmastime. Did we get another one at Christmastime, too?

STU: The light bulb thing.

GLENN: Oh, the light bulb thing happened at Christmastime. And then now our food safety at Christmastime. Did we not get the PATRIOT Act at Christmastime, too, didn't we? Or it was right around the holidays.

PAT: I'll bet it was because it probably took them

GLENN: September 11th, it took them a while.

PAT: Took them a while to get that together and then they probably

GLENN: Or did it take a while? Can you find out when it passed? Did it take them a while?

STU: Yeah, I'm looking at it now.

GLENN: You know, we just thought

PAT: Who wrote the PATRIOT Act?

GLENN: Yeah, could we find that out?

PAT: That happened a little too fast, now that I think of it.

GLENN: Now that I think of it, it did.

PAT: Was that the Apollo Alliance?

GLENN: Seriously let's find out. Because you know who wrote the farm bill, or you know who's funding the farm bill, the major funding behind it is the Pew Center.

STU: What do you mean the funding of the farm bill? What does that mean?

GLENN: The people who are pushing, the real money pushing this thing.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Now, I don't have any evidence that they wrote it or anything else, but that is exactly the way the Tides Center works. They write the bill. These organizations like the Apollo Alliance through the Tides Center, they write the bill and then they give it. So the bill's already done. I'd like to know the origins of this bill. I know the major money behind it is the Pew Center, which is an uber left radical group that has been cleansed that everybody's like, Pew? Oh, just... no, they're just into education. Oh.

STU: Aren't they the polling guys?

GLENN: I don't know if they are the polling guys.

So in this, the reason why they got cloture yesterday was because some of the Republicans were concerned. They were concerned that this might affect your garden at the back of your house or small farms. Because small farmers just can't handle all of this money. So don't worry about that. They have written in there that, okay, small farms and houses aren't going to be affected. Oh, well, I feel so much better. Just like when the president promised that no money would be going for abortions. I feel so much better.

Now, look, here's what I'm telling you. On this farm bill, you can read this bill and if you read it with the eyes of stupid people, if you read it with the eyes of people quite honestly like Orrin Hatch. Orrin, I love ya. You're a good man. But what are you doing anymore? People like Orrin Hatch who will look at this thing and say, "No, well, you know, it's not 1955 anymore. We are not it's not 1975, it's not 1985, it's not 1995." I'm sorry for an outburst on Orrin Hatch, but I just got the list of all the people that voted for cloture yesterday, and he's one of them.

PAT: Maybe you should give him a call and ask him why.

STU: Yeah, yeah, like to hear his case on it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I know his case on this. He's a guy who is still playing the game as if it is as if you can trust everybody. He's a decent man, but unfortunately you're not playing the game against decent people. You are playing a game against radicals! Show me the country that has a safer food supply than us, can you, please? Who has a safer food supply? Is it Sweden? You know what? When we reduce the population of America down to the size of Sweden, we'll get a band of really hot blonds, call them Abba and we can emulate their food supply as well. Won't that be great? 350 million people have to be fed on our food supply. Name the country that has a safer food supply than us.

PAT: I don't think there is anybody.

GLENN: So then why are we why are we panicked on this? Why? Why do we have to do this at Christmas?

PAT: They will tell you the spinach scare, they will tell you the lettuce scare. That's what they'll tell you. That's what they'll tell you.

STU: They've had a decent amount of recalls lately and we need to make sure we improve safety.

GLENN: How about the dog food? How about the dog food that has lead that comes from China?

STU: Yeah, exactly, that's why we need more regulation. We need to make sure that we can check all this stuff.

GLENN: Yes, that's right. How much money is this going to cost? And who pays for it in the end? It's not magical fairy money that shoots out of Geithner's butt. It doesn't exist. So it's passed on to the consumer. You have people that are living on the edge right now, living on the edge. You have seniors that are not going to get a raise in Social Security. You have military who they're now talking about making sure that they don't get a raise, either. The military is the only group of people in this country who are doing their damn job in the government. You name the you name the group of people that are doing their job, in the government that are paid by you and I through tax dollars. Military. That's it. You're kidding me, right? You're going to take these guys, many of them who live on the poverty level already and you're going to have inflation go up, you're going to deny it, which will force their families onto food stamps. Inflation is going up. Then you're going to do something that causes the price of food to go up even faster? What, are you out of your mind? No, no. This is what Stalin did. This is what they all do. This is what FDR did. "Oh, we're going to fix the food thing here in America. You know, there's just too much food." That's why they slaughtered millions of pigs. And then what happened? And then we had a then we had trouble with food. Oh, gee, we can't get any food. People are starving!

Look, if you want to be somebody who agrees and says, you know what, no, it's still 1995, it's still 1985, it's still 1945, it's still 1905, you go right ahead. You go right ahead. I'm not one of them. I'm sorry. There's nothing in this food bill that if you're dealing with Jesus Christ and his disciples as congress and the president, then I'm sure we're fine. I'm sure we're fine. I happen to believe that we're a little farther away from Jesus and a little closer to Beelzebub, and I don't trust them. And I don't want them anywhere near my food supply, thank you very much. This is Cass Sunstein needing new dials. Oh, he'll make sure that you're not eating meat. Remember, he's an animal activist. He will make sure you're not eating meat. How? Well, we'll just make it a little more difficult for the food process to happen with beef. Oh, these slaughter houses need to be cleaned up. Oh, you've got to have more regulation on the slaughter houses. Price of beef goes up! So you're not able to afford beef or chicken.

How many times have we heard about the chicken processing plants and how horrible they are? Well, now, Cass Sunstein can help, a guy who doesn't want you eating chicken! "Oh, well, that's fine. We'll just nudge. We'll nudge. We'll make it a little more expensive."

Gang, please, please. The website GlennBeck.com, all of the information we had on food storage is there. Please.

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.

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

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.
