Sharpton: Rush can say what he wants... except

GLENN: I'm telling you I've never seen anything like this. It is so well coordinated. While everyone is talking about the Julian Assange thing, you have and that is huge. Huge. You have the other hand doing something insidious. Pat's going to set up the clips that we have here, but we are looking at the end of the Internet as you know it, the end of talk radio as you know it, the end of cable news as you know it, most likely the end of communication, newspaper, et cetera, et cetera, as you know it.

Now, anyone who says this is crazy, this is not what they are going to use for it, you are a fool. You are a fool. You listen to Mark Lloyd who talked about the glorious revolution of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. He is a diversity czar at the FCC. If you look at who is involved now at the FCC, it's members of Free Press.

I had somebody who was with the NAB who shall remain nameless that was at a White House function and they were standing there and they didn't know who he was; he didn't really know who they were. He had no idea this is about a year ago no idea what was really going on and he said he started talking to people and they just openly said, "Oh, yeah, well, we're going to do this to the Internet and to radio and these things." And he said they were openly discussing it, until they found out that he was a member of the NAB and then they got a little quiet. It's coming. And we must be aware of it and, you know, if people say, oh, well, you know, oh, they are not going to do it, fine. Move on from those people. But you have to prepare.

Now, listen to the case that they are building now.

PAT: Well, the FCC, just had the audio of the FCC commissioner Michael Copps from last week and then there was new audio about him talking about how the FCC needs to control the Internet. And not only the Internet but prime time television and minute details like the characters that are developed, how many minority characters they have on prime time television, the kind of programming that the TV stations program. Virtually everything.

GLENN: Do we have we have this. This is all up on The Blaze, isn't it?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: That was posted yesterday. So let me look what that is so you can go right to TheBlaze.com. You have free Internet, a civil right. Quote, quote: For every nappy headed child.

PAT: We have that, too.

GLENN: That is FCC commissioner Clyburn. Then you have power grab, FCC commissioner calls for government run values test.

PAT: That's the one I was just talking about.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Where everybody has to go up for licensing renewal every four years.

GLENN: Four years.

PAT: It's eight years now and it's virtually assured. I mean, if you are not doing something really illegal, your license is going to be renewed. He's talking about some sort of test now where they really scrutinize every single individual radio station.

GLENN: And I've told you before, I told you I think this two years ago that they were going to come forget about do you remember me saying forget about the Fairness Doctrine. That's not nearly big enough. They're not going for the Fairness Doctrine.

PAT: Nope.

GLENN: And I said that they were going to go for local boards. Have you heard any talk yet about local boards? Because what they'll do is they will put people in charge locally to monitor the radio stations, et cetera, et cetera. And this is, voices like mine will be gone. Voices like Rush Limbaugh, gone. No doubt about it.

Now, I want you to listen to some of the audio.

PAT: Al Sharpton is out really pushing this stuff. He is

GLENN: Now, just so you know, we're not saying that this is going to happen because Al Sharpton. What we're doing is we're laying a case that the left is surrounding this whole issue. And I do I do believe that the Julian Assange thing is going to also play a role in it. The Internet is going to become intentionally designed, going to become so dangerous that they are going to say, we've got to clamp down, we've got to clamp down. Do not give them the power to do this. Congress is not. Congress said no; the Court said no. The FCC is voting on this. They are going to do it anyway through regulation. Cass Sunstein, our regulatory czar, they are going to do it through regulation December 21st is when they're voting on it.

PAT: And here's what Sharpton said yesterday.

SHARPTON: Rush Limbaugh has the right to say whatever he wants to say.

STU: What's his name?

SHARPTON: He does not have

PAT: Rush lumbar.

STU: Rush lumbar?

PAT: Lumbar. Like that back support that you have in your car or something?

SHARPTON: Rush Limbaugh has the right to say whatever he wants to say. He does not have the right to do it, though, on publicly regulated airwaves. The FCC has the responsibility to set standards to say the public cannot be offended based on their race or their gender.

STU: What?

SHARPTON: In this country

GLENN: Stop.

PAT: That is amazing.

GLENN: You don't have a right to not be offended.

PAT: Nope. It's discrimination. You don't have the right to discriminate against anybody based on race

GLENN: Anything.

PAT: or gender or sexual orientation.

GLENN: But listen.

PAT: You can offend people because you can't set that standard. How do you set the standard that you can't offend someone?

GLENN: But I want you to go back to Mark Lloyd and the audio that we played over two years ago or year and a half ago of him saying that it is time for people to step down so others can have power. He is they are not this is Al Sharpton's angle, that you can't be offended. But the other is, well, this is about minorities, this is about discrimination because the other point of view is not heard and minorities don't own radio or television. Only like, what is it, like 3% or 5% own radio or television networks. And so that needs they need to be minorities that do that. This is why ACORN got into radio. ACORN has radio. Did you know that? Yeah. Yeah. Why? Why do you think?

All right. So here's some more.

PAT: So this is Bertha Lewis now speaking of ACORN.

GLENN: ACORN.

PAT: And she is beating the same drum that Al Sharpton is, just a little bit louder.

BERTHA LEWIS: And when you have an outlet like Fox which is so insidious, you know, this is what should be investigated. These people are using our airwaves.

GLENN: No, they're not.

BERTHA LEWIS: The public airwaves.

GLENN: Cable!

PAT: First of all, Fox is cable. Cable.

STU: Cable and not

PAT: Not public airwaves.

GLENN: That is why

PAT: Cable. Different delivery system.

GLENN: That's why HBO and Skin emax can show nudity. That's why you can say the F bomb a hundred times on cable. Because cable is unregulated. Airwaves are not. Now they're making the case that cable needs to be regulated.

PAT: Same with the internet.

GLENN: Yep.

PAT: They don't belong in that, either.

GLENN: Yep.

BERTHA LEWIS: And when you have such an organization and have these vast resources that can repeat and repeat and repeat and say, "Oh, mainstream media, progressive media, why aren't you covering what we're talking about" and you get folks that go along and it's lazy journalism. Even today, after pounding us I have to admit it was so overwhelming, it was a political tsunami, you know, beating us to a pulp, not having defenders, not having the resources to defend ourselves and

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

BERTHA LEWIS: beating us to death.

PAT: Other than the president of the United States.

BERTHA LEWIS: Right now it's not enough that we won, we beat ACORN, we beat them down, the largest community group and so we cleared the way for the fake Tea Party, now we've become political necrophiliacs. Not only did we kill this organization but we're going to dig them up and we're going to have all kinds of congress kick the corpse over and over again. So political necrophiliacs like Beck, like Murdoch, like Fox, like Limbaugh, like Mr. Breitbart.

STU: I love the host, though.

BERTHA LEWIS: They should be called out for what they really are. They're (inaudible) eaters, they're nasty, they're evil, they're liars, thieves and cheaters.

PAT: Jeez.

STU: That's it, though.

PAT: That's all.

BERTHA LEWIS: And I think we should use this because now folks

PAT: If anybody knows liars, it's the people at ACORN.

BERTHA LEWIS: They say that's it, enough is enough, we know what these guys do.

PAT: Wow.

BERTHA LEWIS: And so we might as well fight.

GLENN: Might as well fight.

BERTHA LEWIS: Because if you cower and you back down, they come after you even harder.

GLENN: Oh, believe me, I know.

BERTHA LEWIS: Why is why, you know, the old ACORN chapters reorganize, regroup. I formed the Black Institute working, you know, with the New York

STU: Exactly what you said was going to happen.

GLENN: Yep, I said they would just go undercover, change names.

BERTHA LEWIS: We're not going to go away.

GLENN: Exactly right.

BERTHA LEWIS: But Breitbart and all of the rightwing blocks continue.

PAT: She just contradicted herself. First she says they're dead, they are not going to go away. Then she admits exactly what Glenn predicted, that they just changed their name and went somewhere else.

STU: Yeah, her whole point is that they keep coming after her even though they're dead.

GLENN: We're going to come back to this here in a second, but I want to say this: I want you to understand very clearly. Listen to the language she's saying. They're evil. They're evil. You have Jim Wallis doing the same thing. You have Van Jones last week, the audio where calling Fox evil.

PAT: Satan.

GLENN: Satan, Satan is into everything, Satan is into everything. We are entering a period of time unlike the world has seen in a very long time. We are entering good versus evil, I mean truly good versus evil. And there is no middle ground. I think I said this to you a year or two ago. There's going to come a time where you cannot stand on the sidelines. There will be no sidelines. You are on one side or the other. You must, if you know anyone who is close to opening their minds, you must get them to open their minds now. Because the lines are being drawn now and those who are sitting silently by and think, "Well, I'm not having to make a decision," they are making a decision. They are. And it will be too late. The boat will sail and they will find themselves on one side or the other. You must know what is true. You must search everything inside of you. Get any kind of darkness outside of you. Get stop all lies in your life. Clean everything out. Because everything will burn down to the ground. Everything will. Julian Assange is just part of it.

When we don't have time to communicate, when we don't communicate with each other anymore, if they pass these things in the FCC, if they do these things, I cannot tell you a year from now that we will have access on the Internet to each other. I cannot tell you that we will be on Fox. I cannot tell you that I will be on radio. I don't know. But I will tell you this: Look for me in your town square. Because I will, just like Whitefield, go from town to town to town. You will have to imprison me or kill me to keep me silent. And I challenge you to have the same kind of commitment to what you believe in, and I challenge you to have the commitment of peace and love because the Lord will conquer. You just must be on the right side. You must be standing in His will. He doesn't pick a side. We do. And we I'm telling you He will not fail. He will not fail. We will if we think the way we always have. If we think this is just no big deal. If you don't think out of the box. The world is changing, and you and your family will survive if you align yourself with things that are true. But it's hard to do in America today. It's hard to do in this world today. Everything is set up against it and everyone is trying to make you feel stupid or crazy for doing it. Don't let that stop you. Let them call you every name under the sun. Let them chastise you. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. Great and powerful darkness and great and powerful light are coming. Make sure you know the difference between the two because when you have to choose, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between the two.

 

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.
