GLENN: I'd like to play the audio now of a Democratic senator picked up by a

microphone saying you know, talking about this, again, a Democratic senator

talking about the system that we now have.

BENNET: It's nothing about because it's all rigged. I mean, the whole

conversation is rigged, the conversation, the fact that we don't get to a

discussion before the break about what we're going to do in the lame duck is

just rigged. This stuff's rigged.

PAT: I believe, I believe he uses the word "Rigged" either four or five times.

GLENN: And who he's talking to, another senator, is also saying, yes, yes.

PAT: Yes, it is, yes, is rigged. The situation is the agenda has been rigged by

the Democrats. And there's a Democrat, Michael Bennet, from Colorado saying it,

and just happened to be overheard with a live mic during a C Span broadcast.

GLENN: Now, this is after the voting of the Food Safety Act. With the Food

Safety Act.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, why would it possibly be rigged?

PAT: And he wanted, he wanted some discussion I think is all he wanted. He was

wondering why they weren't talking about it, why and they wouldn't because it's

already been rigged.

GLENN: Well, no, but that's ridiculous to say.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: Who would possibly rig something like that?

PAT: Well, we're conspiracy theorists for pointing out that he said it.

GLENN: I don't know why you have to point out that he said it. Who is this

mysterious "He" that you keep referring to?

PAT: Senator Michael Bennet from Colorado.

GLENN: Just like you to come up with a name like that.

PAT: I know. Just pull it out of thin air.

GLENN: Thin air. And then, you know, show the audio. Who could possibly rig it?

Who benefits from the Food Safety Act?

PAT: Hmmm. Where do you begin?

GLENN: Where do you begin?

PAT: Monsanto, I guess?

GLENN: Monsanto.

PAT: That would be a pretty good place to start.

GLENN: Who, who just upped their stock on Monsanto, and I believe it's now the

number one or number two investment of this individual?

PAT: Umm, gosh.

STU: It's probably somebody older? I feel like an older person?

PAT: You feel like not originally from America?

STU: Maybe not, maybe not.

GLENN: I don't know who you're talking about. I have no idea. You conspiracy

theorists are just because through the Tides Foundation which I fund the Apollo

Alliance was born and they wrote the stimulus package, I don't know what you're

talking about. Why would the Food Safety Act be written by any of my minions?

PAT: That's just conspiracy talk. That's all it is.

GLENN: That's all it is.

PAT: It's conspiracy talk.

GLENN: Well, no. I mean, it is conspiracy talk.

PAT: And anti Semitism.

GLENN: To come out and say that the system is rigged.

BENNET: It's nothing about because it's all rigged. I mean, the whole

conversation is rigged, the conversation, the fact that we don't get to a

discussion before the break about what we're going to do in the lame duck is

just rigged. This stuff's rigged.

GLENN: Yeah, it's rigged, isn't it?

PAT: That is that is amazing. That is amazing. I wonder how often MSNBC will

probably hammer that today.

GLENN: I haven't seen that anywhere.

PAT: I bet they play that over and over.

GLENN: Have you seen that?

PAT: I haven't seen it yet but I'm sure they

GLENN: I haven't seen it.

PAT: They are probably just queueing up the tape right now.

STU: They are saving it up so they can run it all midday.

GLENN: Have you seen it on Fox?

PAT: Actually I haven't seen it on Fox, either.

STU: I haven't watched Fox this morning but I'm sure they

GLENN: You have a Senator on the floor talking about how the whole system is

rigged! That's not news to anyone?

PAT: No, and it wouldn't be, either, if Republicans were in the majority right

now in the Senate or we had a, let's say Republican president like George W.

Bush and they were saying that it was rigged, I'm sure that that wouldn't be a

news item, either. I'm sure if it was Lindsey Graham are or John Cornyn saying

this, I'm sure it wouldn't be a discussion.

STU: It seems like all he's asking for is a discussion about what would be

discussed during the lame duck session.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: That's not exactly a high standard he's looking for.

PAT: No, it's really not.

STU: It's really not.

PAT: It's really not, but they didn't even have that before they voted

apparently and so that's

STU: They needed to talk about Boise State, though. They needed to have Boise

State. Nevada won in that game, and the quarterback's tall and he can run

quickly.

PAT: Very, very, very fast.

STU: And he throws it a long ways.

PAT: A long ways according to Harry Reid.

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?
