GLENN: Holy cow. We have now new audio from Bill Ayers on the WikiLeaks. Do

you have it? This is from

PAT: Yeah, I didn't think it was going already but it is.

GLENN: This is from

TheBlaze.com. It will be posted in a few minutes. This is an

exclusive, I believe from TheBlaze.com right now. It is Bill Ayers talking about WikiLeaks. In it he does not denounce violence of the weather underground. He

compares WikiLeaks to the Weather Underground and, in fact, at one point he's a

little indignant that the radio host tries to imply that he denounces violence.

Here it is.

VOICE: In all of your interviews, especially, you know, around the election, you

always had to open up by denouncing the violence inflicted by the Weather

Underground and what we were wondering, which never got talked about, is what

actually drove you guys during that era? What drove these activists that you

knew to such extreme measures?

AYERS: I'm let me just start by saying I'm not certain I understood the

beginning of your question. You said always denounced the violence of the

Weather Underground?

VOICE: Well, yeah. It seemed like, it seemed like you always

AYERS: I don't remember that.

VOICE: Well, it seemed like you always had to open up by being like it was very,

you know, regrettable and so forth.

AYERS: I don't believe I ever said it's regrettable, but so

PAT: I don't think he has, either.

AYERS: I'll tell you I'll answer your question but I don't quite agree with the

way you set it up because actually what I've consistently, including in

everything I've written, is that there is no question that the Weather

Underground crossed, you know, lines of legality and I sometimes say we crossed

lines of common sense in certain ways, but I never denounce what we did. And the

reason is because in the context of those times and what was going on


TheBlaze:


‘I Never Denounced’ W.U. Violence: Ayers Compares Weather Underground to

WikiLeaks

GLENN: The ends justify the means.

AYERS: I actually think that we were very restrained, and I've always thought

that, and I still think it. So but what drove us to it? Well, I would say this:

That I was one simple way to say it is in a story. I was first arrested opposing

the war in Vietnam in 1965.

GLENN: You are hearing Bill Ayers, brand audio.

AYERS: At that point, something like 80% of Americans supported the war,

something like 10, 15% opposed the war. Over the next three years activism

became much more intense, much more public. I participated in a lot of it. A lot

of organizing went on against the war. I think the most violent force then and

even more violent today is the U.S. Government. Do I think what we did was

brilliant? Not really. Do I think it was horrendous? Absolutely not. You compare

6,000 people in one week being murdered by my government to, you know, an

escalated piece of vandalism against a military computer inside the Pentagon,

there's no comparison. And to kind of focus on the Weather Underground as this

violent, unbelievably out of control, I think it reminds me, if you put it in

today's context, here we have WikiLeaks describing, you know, revealing all the

incredible things going on. The real assault on democracy by our government in a

systematic way. And how does the news media cover it? Oh, my gosh, it's leaking,

it's dishonest. Who's dishonest in this picture? Who's the liar in this picture?

Who's the force for oppression and exploitation? Well, in my view if you look at

the Sixties and you look at the Seventies, the Weather Underground was not only

restrained, we were temperate, we were not particularly violent. We destroyed

some property.

GLENN: Can you stop for a second? I just said this, I looked at Pat when I'm

listening to him and I'm saying, this is all set up. This is a setup. This

Julian Assange thing, when did we know he was coming out with things?

PAT: Was it August?

GLENN: I think it was a little before August.

PAT: Maybe, maybe before that.

STU: Well, he had the war stuff over the summer and then it's been more recent.

Recent stuff.

GLENN: So we knew. Why did he wait until now? Does anybody know?

PAT: Christmas Gift for the left?

GLENN: Why did he wait until now?

PAT: Stocking stuffer?

GLENN: Why? Why? Why would you wait on that? Why would you sit on that stuff?

STU: I think I've heard him I could be wrong on this but I think he wanted

separation to some degree.

GLENN: From?

STU: From the other stuff that he released, the war stuff, which is why he's

supposedly trickling it out now instead of just releasing it all at once, have

more impact. I don't know if you buy that, but that's been something tossed

around.

GLENN: I just find it, I find it really interesting. Listen. Bill Ayers, no

matter what he says, is a friend of Barack Obama and Barack Obama's allies. They

may not be close friends but they know each other. They worked in the same damn

building one door away. They were on the same board. They lived in the same

neighborhood. They know each other. They're friends. I'm not saying that they're

having, you know, nacho parties and watching football games on the weekend, but

they are friends. Bill Ayers, without a shadow of a doubt, is friends with many

people surrounding this president.

Now, Bill Ayers is now coming out now, listen. Because what's happening here? We

are taking down this regime, if you will. Well, who's in charge? Who's in

charge? Barack Obama, right? Well, if you take down this regime, wouldn't you be

taking down Barack Obama? Or are we just taking down America? Because, as I told

you before, they are building a structure and they need to have the structure

completed before it collapses. I've told you they are preparing. They have. The

only piece left is the media and the military. Now, I don't know what their

military plan is, but I do know what their media plan is. Because you can find

it on The Blaze. We just played we did it for about 45 minutes today, playing

the audio. Listen to the commissioner of the FCC. He wants to control television

and the characters on television.

The only thing left is the media and the military. I know what they are planning

on doing in the media, and that happens December 20th or 21st? The FCC goes

against the wishes of congress and against federal judges and they are going to

do Internet, what do you call it?

PAT: Net neutrality.

GLENN: Net neutrality through, if you remember I said the most dangerous man in

America is Cass Sunstein, our regulatory czar. He controls and writes all the

regulations. Once you make congress irrelevant, it's all about regulations and

paperwork. So what are they doing on December 20th? They are changing the

federal regulations on the Internet. They will regulate it through the FCC. Cass

Sunstein. We will show you, you can read about it more on TheBlaze.com about the

military and what is happening currently with the military. The military has

been doing military exercises and we are tracking all of this stuff down and we

are going to do probably an hour special on it tomorrow night. But all of the

pieces are in place. So Barack Obama doesn't collapse in the system. The people

remember, bottom up, cause chaos, get people to march in the streets. Cause

chaos. Cause a, what was it Soros says in Step Number 3, what he did to all the

other nations? You cause distrust of the government. And you get people to march

out in the streets. You cause collapse and the people want it to stop, and they

will cry out. And that's when the top comes down that coordinated the bottom

riots. This is Czechoslovakia 1948. This is America 2011. Bottom up, top down.

Turn it inside out. Their own words they are saying these things now. You just

have to believe that there was somebody that would be willing to do this. Here

is Bill Ayers. It just screams coordination to me. Here is Bill Ayers saying

that the Weather Underground is the same as WikiLeaks. It's the same, their

goals are the same. You have the communists go to NZpatriot.com today and look

at the list of the communist parties all around the world that have come out and

said, yes, we're behind WikiLeaks. Why? Chaos.

Do you remember the show I did three, four months ago and I had the whole

spectrum and I had anarchists and communists. One side was communist and the

other side was anarchists. Well, what do the anarchists have in common? Why

would the communists be fueling the anarchists? Why would they do it? Because

they know that anarchy leads to people crying out and saying stop it, just make

it go away. Bring sanity. They are going to collapse this whole damn world. They

are going to collapse the whole damn world.

So you know, this isn't a WikiLeaks is doing this. He was arrested in Great

Britain. This is not an American problem. This is why I've said to you that

they're so far beyond what you thought, what I thought and I will tell you now

and I haven't told this story before. I have had one moment of real fear, real

fear, and it was the moment that I found buried in a bill that passed under

George W. Bush pieces of this FCC regulation. It's when I knew they were

building a structure and I knew they were way ahead because this piece of this

FCC structure made no sense by itself. It was buried in another bill. A

researcher called me about 11:00 at night and said, Glenn, I found it. When did

it pass? Believe it or not, it passed under George W. Bush. Dear God help us. I

realize this isn't about Barack Obama. This isn't about anything. This is about

radicals that have laid in wait. What is the beginning of H. G. Wells and War of

the Worlds? That we have been studied. Eyes, envious eyes watching and studying,

laying in wait. That's when I wrote to Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin and I had been

texting each other all night and I wrote to her and I said, I am for the first

time afraid. And she called me back like at 2:00 in the morning and we were on

the phone for about an hour. And I said, Sarah, this has been in the works for a

very long time. They're way ahead. Way ahead. And this was the moment that I she

actually talked me down from the tree because this is a moment when I said just

never, never going to beat it. You're never going to beat it. And I'm not going

to be the guy I'm not going to be the guy. And she talked to me for quite a

while: You've got to stay in the game. You've got to stay in the game. She was a

real blessing to me. I don't even know if she even remembers that. I'm sure she

does. Since that time I have learned so much of, A, how far ahead they are but,

B, how to defeat them. I know how to defeat them. And the way to do it is they

think you are going to zig. You must zag. They do not the darkness will not

understand the light. It is your only cover. It is your only cover.

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.
