Glenn Beck: And the chaos begins...

GLENN: We were just talking during the break again about this South Korea situation. This is extraordinarily brave and it I personally believe that this is possibly the beginning of the is this the longest standing prediction of the show? We should find out. What's the longest standing prediction of this show? But one of them, and this one goes all the way back to the perfect storm which I told you about a year, maybe two years after 9/11. I started figuring it out, and the key was understanding Osama Bin Laden. In 1998 I was on the air and I had been reading the words of Osama Bin Laden, and I believed him. This guy wasn't a stupid guy. And I believed him. And he talked about bringing America to its knees and attacking New York and yada, yada, and I said in '98 this is going to happen. It's going to happen here in New York and there will be blood and bodies in the streets of New York. Well, we know what happened.

After that I went back and I looked at some of the things he said, and he made me so angry. When I first read the words, and I'm paraphrasing, that what I've done to the Soviet Union I will do to America. And I was really angry and I thought, my gosh, how dare you say that you collapsed the Soviet Union. You didn't collapse the Soviet Union. It was Ronald Reagan. Well, it wasn't just Ronald Reagan, though, and this is when I started thinking, well, it wasn't just Ronald Reagan. It was also Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul. The three of them really did it. No, well, now wait a minute. It was also the forces inside. It was the solidarity movement in Poland that did it. Well, now wait a minute, it was Afghanistan, though, and Osama Bin Laden that was bleeding them dry. Then I went back to Star Wars with Ronald Reagan and I'm like, oh, my gosh, Ronald Reagan was putting the pressure on them financially from in the obvious outward way, but the Afghanistan war was putting it on the inside way. And I realized it was a perfect storm that collapsed the former Soviet Union. It was all of these things. And each of us in our own arrogance takes credit for it. But it was teamwork. It was teamwork. And so when I figured that perfect storm out, I realized it was being recreated for us. And I will tell you this. It's being what happened in the former Soviet Union is being recreated 100%. I really don't think it's a coincidence that the former Soviets, the former communists, the diehards, they just took off their uniform and they replaced the uniform with a suit and put the gun in the drawer. But the gun is still in the drawer. And they developed an oligarchy. They developed a system of corruption, but it's all communists are still in charge. The communists are still in charge over there. They just don't call themselves that. They call themselves state capitalists. But you tell me that the KGB is any worse. What is it that NV what is the KGB called now? I don't remember.

PAT: I don't, either.

GLENN: But that, you tell me. I mean, they're killing reporters. They're killing anybody who stands in their way. What's the difference? So they don't have gulags anymore. They just gun you down in your elevator on your way to the apartment.

Well, the former Soviet Union did not collapse. It was transformed, as we told you before. Yeltsin went into the woods with the Ukraine with the Ukrainians and all, some of the other satellite countries of the former Soviet Union and said, look, there's going to be blood in the streets or we can transform it and you can keep your power and all of us can all of us can kind of, you know, go away happily here. And they made a secret deal in the woods and that's what happened. And I believe that's happening to our country right now. It's not in the woods. It's out in the open. It's Open Society. It's a new world order. But we are being fundamentally transformed. And this is the beginning of the perfect storm. When I said these conditions are going to form. And when the world figures out that America is weak and she's powerless, they will pounce and they will all do their part.

What did Al Qaeda announce this weekend? Al Qaeda has announced that they are going to do Operation Hemorrhage. Operation Hemorrhage is death by a thousand paper cuts. It doesn't even matter if they're successful anymore. Their words. It doesn't even matter if they're successful. If they put a bomb in a plane and the bomb doesn't go off, it doesn't matter. How much money did we spend getting those UPS planes down? How much money are we spending on the TSA now? What is happening to us?

There's a story you have to read. It's on the front page of The Blaze, I believe, and I'll get back to South Korea here in a second. But this one is from the London Daily Mail: We hate these obese passengers and people with personal hygiene issues. Now the abused TSA staff vent their anger. And it talks about, this story is amazing. You have to read it. It is not comfortable to come to work knowing full well that my hands will be feeling another man's private parts, their butt and inner thigh. Even worse is having to feel the inside of flab rolls of these obese passengers, and we get a lot of obese passengers. Another said he had a huge problem dealing with a large number of passengers daily that have a problem understanding what personal hygiene is. The staff said they experienced a high level of personal abuse while carrying out pat downs. Being a TSA often means being verbally abused. You let the comments roll off your back for the next person. However, when a woman refuses a scanner and then comes to me and tells me that she feels like I'm molesting her, that's beyond verbal abuse. I asked a woman if she thought I liked touching other women all day. She told me I probably did or I wouldn't be with the TSA.

What are we doing to each other? I made you a promise on 9/11. I went on the air on the afternoon of 9/11 and I made you a promise. I told you no outside force would ever destroy us. No outside force would ever destroy us, as long as we remembered who we were. We're forgetting who we were. We're forgetting who we even are. The TSA is not our enemy. Those guys, I told you two weeks ago, these guys do not like doing this. They're citizens just like us. It is the policy, not the people. If you alienate yourself from the TSA, if we push those TSA members up, they will view us as the enemy and you do not want the Department of Homeland Security and a will be freshly unionized force with the powers of the Department of Homeland Security thinking you're the enemy. Do not give them the ammunition to push them into a labor union. It's what this government wants. Do not. Think Gandhi. It's Christmas. Think Jesus. Know your rights but think Jesus. This is the point when I said that these things would start, they would see weak, they would see America as being weak and those forces all around the world like Al Qaeda, like Kim Jung Il, like Ahmadinejad, Muslim extremists, revolutionaries, they would all say at one point, "Now, go, go, go, go!" And they would take their piece of the pie. They would not be working together but they would all see the opportunity and they would seize it. I believe this is what is happening in North Korea.

How does Kim Jung Il think he's going to get away with it? He knows the United States ain't going to do anything. And answer this question: What is it we're going to do? Unless China we've condemned; China has not. Unless China solves this, unless China gives us permission, did you hear what I just said? The United States of America is no longer the global superpower. China is. This is 1917.

When I told you to read about Woodrow Wilson, that was another reason why I asked you to read. The world changed in 1917, but it took the great the second world war for the rest of the world to wake up to that. It's not going to take the second world war for the rest of the world. It's going to take chaos. Hopefully it's not a second world war. God forbid. But it is 1917. The world has changed. What is it that America is going to do here without China's permission? I don't think very much. If we want to act without China's permission off their coast do you know China is releasing maps now by accident. It was just a mistake. Where their international waters, their borders in the water? It's not the same border. These maps are wrong. Excuse me, that's not your territory. "Oh, it was just a mistake." Was it? Was it? There is in 20, I think it's 2012 or 2014, can you check? I think it's 2012, there is a regime change in China and much of the power goes back to the military, and the military doesn't like us. The leaders in China know that we just have to all work together and that's the best thing. The Chinese don't want instability. That's the one thing they don't want. They have two billion people. They don't want instability. They are on the edge, too. But there are those in the military that say, bring it on. Bring it on. I don't know what it is going to take for people to pull their heads out of the sand, but Stu, will you grant me this blanket statement? I know this is pretty broad, but correct me if you think I'm way off base. Only history will be able to tell us. Only historians 20 years down the road will be able to tell us, but I believe there's a good possibility we are entering exactly the times that I say were coming, that this is it. This is possibly the beginning of, go, go, go, go, go, where the world turns fast.

STU: Yeah, we can't possibly know that for

GLENN: We don't know that for 20 years.

STU: That's something you find out in the records when someone else opens them up decades down the line for historians to examine.

GLENN: But it sure has all the earmarks of it. It's going to look something like this if it's not.

STU: It could. I mean, you know, I think there's still you know, you need to more evidence. But you're not going to know until then. And it seems like when this stuff like Korea gets fired up, you never know. We were talking about this in the break, Pat brought up. You never know where this stuff goes. It could go easily China could be brought into this and when that stuff happens, you have no idea what level you're going to.

GLENN: China would love to be brought into this. I think China would love to be the peacemaker. China will come in and just

PAT: Or the peacemaker. Whatever they need to do I think.

GLENN: That's what I mean.

PAT: They are perfectly fine with doing it, yeah.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. They don't want instability.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And if it means we're going to crack down on this region, they will take the territory.

PAT: And if that means cracking down on South Korea, they will do it.

GLENN: They will do it.

PAT: And they will challenge us to do something about that.

GLENN: They will do it with Japan, they will do it with Taiwan, they will do it. They don't care. They are the world superpower now. Anybody, all of these people that thought, oh, well, China just needs us to be the leader, are you out of your mind? China has two billion people that live on the edge. They have 800 million people in poverty, 800 million people that live in poverty.

Now, do you really think that they're screwing around? Do you really think they care about anybody else's policies? They are going to keep themselves stable. Just like the United States and everybody else has ever done. You've at some point you as a country need to take care of your own people. There's a little something called self preservation that Americans seemingly have forgotten. And at some point China says, we've got to take care of our own. If you don't think they'll come over here and rape our mountains for the coal, especially if we dishonored their debt. They warned us, don't dishonor our investment. That's a quote: Don't dishonor our investment. We're going to stand up and say, no, you're not taking that? No, you can't have that oil in the Gulf as repayment? You really think? With two billion people, they can just drop people from the sky and they don't run out of people before we lose. I mean, people without parachutes. They just drop people and we lose!

PAT: It's only about 1.3 billion.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: I mean, you're

STU: You'd have to take over some more countries to get to two, but they are not above that, I suppose.

PAT: They could take over, you know, South Korea and North Korea and India and get there.

GLENN: Are you I'm sorry. Are you okay. So the number thing, are you saying to me that they couldn't just send planes and drop people out of the sky and we lose?

PAT: No, I think they will. I think they have proven they are perfectly willing to do that.

GLENN: They are perfectly willing to do that.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: I mean, they have killed 80 million people, killed them. Just executed them. Oh.

STU: Starved them to death, all the fun stuff.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, no big deal. No big deal.

PAT: That's communism. It's beautiful.

GLENN: No, no, no. No, no, no. It's state capitalism.

PAT: Yeah. Oh, yeah.

STU: That was more commune well, it was well, forget it.

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

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.
