GLENN: I want to go over the WikiLeaks and last hour I asked you, are you

surprised by anything that is coming out of the WikiLeaks stories? Are you

surprised that these documents show that China has helped Iran with a bomb? No.

We told you that. Are you surprised that North Korea may have supplied a bomb to

Iran? No. We told you they were doing that. Are you surprised that Putin is not

a friend of the United States? No, you'd have to be a dead man. Are you

surprised that we're in a really difficult situation with our, quote, ally

Pakistan? Are you surprised that the major funder of Al Qaeda is Saudi Arabia?

No, I'm not surprised by any of these. Are you? Is anyone in America surprised

by these? So why is this coming out? Why is this coming out? If you look at the

headline of the Drudge Report, it gives you a clue. Now, I understand that it's

just the Drudge Report, but I think it's interesting that the headline is

WikiLeaks turns on Obama. If you notice, there seems to be a gap here. There's

no George Bush stuff, or very little. It's, most of it is Obama stuff. Turns on

Obama. Who where did these documents come from? These documents came from a guy,

Bradley Manning. He is apparently upset with I don't know his whole story. He

was jilted by a boyfriend or something and... I don't know. But who's supporting

him? And are there any connections to WikiLeaks, to spooky dude? Well, we spent

the weekend having our researchers look into it. Yes, surprisingly enough. Let's

take a look at who's supporting the guy who is releasing all of this and who's

helping WikiLeaks. Who's involved? Are there any ties? And then maybe we'll

answer the question, why is this coming out? We'll give you that here coming up

in a second.

(OUT 10:16)

GLENN: So let's take a look here. Let's take a look at Bradley Manning

supporters. This is the guy who actually got the documents to WikiLeaks. Code

Pink. Code Pink, Code Pink. Wait a minute. Code Pink is related to Bill Ayers

and Bernardine Dohrn and the whole anti Israel thing. Remember the flotilla? I

believe Code Pink, doesn't Code Pink, can you look in? I think Code Pink gets

money from Soros. Noam Chomsky, love Noam. You like Noam?

PAT: I've always loved Noam.

GLENN: He's wonderful. He's a communist. Michael Moore. Hmmm.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Then you have the Movement for Democratic Society. Now, what is the

Movement for Democratic Society?

PAT: That must be good. It's got "Democratic" in it.

GLENN: It is. It's the adult counterpart of the Students for a Democratic

Society. So it's like the Grey Panthers and the Black Panthers. The Grey

Panthers are the old ones? Now, who's the guy who started SDS back in the 1960s?

He's the guy who's now running the Open Society Institute for George Soros. Oh.

So that's

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: That's good. WikiLeaks founders when they started to talk about the need

to raise $5 million, they said the only ones that had this kind of money that

could do what they were looking to do was the CIA or George Soros. And they

complained that the original the initial round of publicity had, quote, affected

our delicate negotiations with the Open Society Institute.

Now, I'm sure George Soros, because he's come out and he has said he is so

against this WikiLeaks thing, he is so against it. Uh huh. WikiLeaks' advisory

board member was a director of the China office of Human Rights Watch, which is

Soros funded. Which the WikiLeaks editor, you know, he's hiding out in Great

Britain, he's represented by attorney Mark Stevens, which is weird because

Stevens also does pro bono work for the Open Society Institute. Isn't that

weird? Huh. The Soros funded Kenya Human Rights Commission published an award

winning WikiLeaks report and its editor, one Julian Assange, won the Amnesty

International 2009 media award for the report Cry of Blood, and Soros should

know something about the Cry of Blood. Soros, of course, funded the Kenya

National Commission on Human Rights. So we have that going for us.

So now what am I alleging here? Well, I remind you of the, what is it, 1945 or

'46 uprising in Czechoslovakia where the people at the top had a different

agenda and they infiltrated the government of Czechoslovakia. They were

communists and they infiltrated. And then unbeknownst to the average person they

orchestrated all kinds of events on the ground, caused chaos, and had people to

cry out to the government who they thought were on their side. "You've got to

stop the madness." It's bottom up, top down and inside out. It is the theory

that Van Jones, who George Soros has courted since his time in Oakland, he has

paid for every step of the way, Van Jones. Van Jones is a George Soros

operative. And quite frankly probably the one with the brightest future. Top

down, bottom up, inside out.

What are people saying right now? Can't we stop these people? Can't we stop

these people? How do we stop WikiLeaks? So the people are crying out, stop the

release of this information. But you'll notice that the information isn't

surprising. It's all information you already knew. And it verifies that your

government is lying to you, which gives you two things. One, a distrust of

government, which we showed you in the Soros special is, what, Step Number 3 or

Step Number 4? Make sure people don't trust the government. Well, there you go.

Now you don't trust the government to tell you the truth. Why? Because they're

lying to you. But now you have verification that they're lying to you. And at

the same time you have people crying out, can't we stop these people? Hmmm. So

the bottom rises up and people cry out, can't we stop them, and the top, of

course, is there to make sure things like this just don't happen for your

protection. I'm sorry, I don't agree with WikiLeaks and I don't agree with

Julian Assange. I don't, I don't think these are good guys. But so far all they

have done is release the fact that your government has been lying to you. Not

surprising. I haven't seen names of people. That's what concerns me, operatives.

I think this is extraordinarily dangerous. But I reserve my right to cry out for

them being shut down on put into jail, for a government that I do trust. I'm

sorry I'm unwilling when I've got a government shutting down websites for Prada

purses but they won't shut this one down. They will shut the Prada purses down

on the same weekend that they are frisking grandma at the airport and yet they

still won't recognize that there are people who are Islamic and crazy and want

to kill us. They won't recognize that.

Our president has talked about Republicans, conservatives and tea parties as

being the enemies. Hmmm. No, I don't, I don't think I trust him or anyone around

him to bring the top down and silence people, especially since it's

coincidentally the week that the FCC is deciding whether or not they are going

to help in Net neutrality, which would regulate the Internet. Oh, that will be

helpful. And Howard Dean is talking about how MSNBC and Fox should be curtailed.

Again, what did I say? They will gladly throw MSNBC to the wolves because they

have already played their role. They are no longer useful to them. So they will

discard them. They are also being sold to another channel, and you know that any

businessman is going to look at that model and say you've practically destroyed

NBC. So sorry, guys, we have to reset. So, of course, they'll throw that one.

"You know what? We'll give you MSNBC. You just give us Fox." No, I don't think

that's a fair trade. No. Sorry. Back in a minute.

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.
