GLENN: There's also something going on now with the military that is

extraordinarily intense and there's something happening with this crazy, crazy

link with Russia. Now, we told you yesterday that Russia is now getting, what is

it, 50% of our uranium supply is going through Russian ARMZ, A R M Z? There's no

problem with that (sniffing). By the way, the parent company is Russian

controlled and has given fuel to, is it North Korea or Iran?

STU: It was Iran.

PAT: Iran. I don't know why you even bring it up. Why do you bring it up?

GLENN: I know.

PAT: It's got nothing to do with it.

GLENN: Everybody in Wyoming, you know, all of the congressmen said, no, no,

don't do this. But for some reason the Obama administration approved this.

There's also something else that's really fascinating. We're going to do a

joint, I guess like a weekend out. It's like a weekend retreat on the Smart Grid

with Russia.

STU: That sounds like fun. A weekend retreat to talk about the Smart Grid? What

could possibly be better?

GLENN: What could possibly go wrong?

STU: I can't think of anything. It's smart.

GLENN: Can you think of anything?

PAT: No. Russians controlling, you know, your

GLENN: No, no, they're not controlling.

PAT: household appliances and things? I can't think of anything, you know, uh

uh. No.

STU: They have always been our friends, they will always be our friends.

PAT: Always be our friends, always. Hey, they were our allies in World War II.

STU: Right. Remember that? That was a big one. Remember that one.

PAT: I get so tired of people who forget that all the time.

STU: That was important.

PAT: They were our allies.

GLENN: Did I point out that Putin I'm pretty sure was like a colonel in the KGB

or something.

STU: Wow, he's accomplished guy then? That's a great guy to be designing Smart

Grid then.

GLENN: Remember the Smart Grid, we told you and were mocked because we said it's

a way for them to monitor and control your electricity and control everything in

your house?

STU: I want smart people controlling my electricity.

GLENN: Do you remember in do you remember that we told you that Fannie and

Freddie, remember they had the special locking outlets that they had designed

and patented but they were

STU: Fannie and Freddie seem like nice people.

GLENN: But they were only doing it because, what was their excuse, somebody

might plug in an unauthorized vacuum?

PAT: Vacuum cleaner, yeah, yeah. With names like Fannie and Freddie, how could

they be bad, though?

GLENN: You are right.

PAT: Fannie, Freddie? I'm okay with that.

STU: What, do you want to use an unauthorized vacuum cleaner?

PAT: No.

STU: I want a vacuum cleaner that's authorized.

PAT: I can't tell you how many maids have come into my house and just started

vacuuming, just plugging into various outlets in my house and pretty soon well,

nothing blows, but dang it!

STU: My entire family was murdered by unauthorized vacuum cleaners?

PAT: Really?

STU: I've never told that story before.

GLENN: That is a fascinating story, especially the way you tell it. It's hair

raising.

PAT: I never thought it would have come up before, but

GLENN: That is a hair raising tale. Thank you for sharing that.

STU: You're welcome. It was scary! I just walked around and they were all in the

bag because they were killed by the vacuum cleaner that sucked into the bag.

GLENN: They should have authorized it. If they only had a license from the

government.

STU: Right! Then it wouldn't have happened!

GLENN: There's something wrong here. There's something very, very wrong and at

the top of the hour, we're going to play some chilling audio, chilling audio. If

you think that the voices of people like me and Rush and Sean and anybody on

Fox, anybody who disagrees are going to be around, I think you're sadly

mistaken.

PAT: You have the right to say any of these things, Glenn. In your own kitchen.

GLENN: Do I?

PAT: Well, for now. But you don't have the right

GLENN: As long as I don't have any appliances that might be listening to me.

PAT: Yes. You don't have the right to say them on public airwaves. You just, you

don't. And so

STU: Well, public airwaves like Fox News Channel.

PAT: Right, yes.

STU: Public airwaves. That's what

GLENN: That's not public. That's cable.

STU: No, ACORN said it was Fox News on the public airwaves and that's what was

the problem.

GLENN: Huh. That's not airwaves. That's cable.

STU: No, but air, air comes through the cables, idiot.

GLENN: Why don't we just

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: Ugh!

PAT: He got you there!

STU: Yeah!

PAT: Woo hoo hoo, he nailed you, Glenn!

GLENN: Wow, I didn't see that one coming.

PAT: Air comes through the cable.

GLENN: That one is

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That one is so good, I still don't see it. I still don't see it.

STU: Really?

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.
