GLENN: Also, I have to tell you something. This is real -- my wife just said to me, "Oh, my goodness," last night. We were laying in -- we were laying in bed and she asked me, you know, how is the U pillar thing going and I said, I don't know. I haven't checked it. I said, I think tomorrow is the last day. Today is the last day for U Pillar. We're selling all of the stuff at our house and she just says, oh, my goodness. I said, what? And she said, these two couches, they're from Lilly & August and they're these great couches, I guess, and they were in our living room for, you know, the last couple of years. They're going -- two of them are going for $900 and she told me how much they -- she told me how much they cost last night. I'm, like, we spent what on couches? It's insane. It's -- there's some really good deals on some really good furniture. This dining room table which I'm really regretting selling, because I think it's $900, too, the dining room table, I think, was, like, $6,000. It's old -- it was made by an old guy in England and it's fantastic. It's really beautiful. I love it. I don't know why we sold it, but I love it. And it's stuff from our house and all of the proceeds go to charity. So, I mean, you know, if you're looking for something, I mean, you could -- let's just say if you're really rich, it's really -- it's going to a good cause. If you're not really rich, the deals are really good. If you're looking for something nice, some of the stuff is really good. By the way, I haven't seen -- lost in transit someplace is one of my paintings. I sold one of my paintings and it's from a few years ago and it was the last one I painted, I think, before Peter Max and I didn't like any of my paintings. I never finished them. I didn't like any of them and then Peter Max, the artist, called me up one day. He was a fan of the show or -- I don't know -- maybe I was in prison and it was the only thing that he could listen to and he said, you know, you're having problems painting and stuff and he said, come over and he did and he just changed my whole perspective on painting and this is the last painting I painted before I met with him and I walked around the house and the kids didn't want to -- want me to sell any of the paintings and -- except that one. They were, like, yeah, that one can go, Dad. So, it might only be worth, like, $2, but I haven't seen it up there. So, we'll have to look for that, but today is the last day at U, the letter U, P I L L A R, and I guess everything comes with a certificate of authenticity which I don't even know what that means. I guess it's just a letter from me, signed by me that says, yep, it was in my house. Like that makes it -- that may decrease the value. Here's what you do. You go to U Pillar and you find something and you buy it for one of your liberal friends and then you give it to them and then they put it in the house and you get the ugliest thing you can think of, look for the worst thing you can think of it and make it into a very big deal that this was, like, give to you by your mother and it's really -- and that way they have to put it up and come over to their house a lot, so they have to put it someplace and then about halfway through the year, just say, By the way, that didn't come from my Mom. That was from Glenn Beck's house. You've got a little bit of Glenn Beck in you. Yeah.

PAT: That would be especially nice on, like, the ceramic rooster or something, you know, get something that might not -

GLENN: My wife hated that ceramic rooster. That's the first thing she said. I said, What do you think we get rid of some of the stuff in our house? She's like, the ceramic rooster? I said, Yeah. I hate that damn thing. It, like, spooks me in the middle of the night. Why is there a rooster?!

PAT: Do you know who gave it to you? Any idea?

GLENN: Like I'm going to say that?

PAT: Well --

GLENN: There are a couple of people -- I'm not going to say their name. There are a few people that have called and said, you got rid of -- yes, yes, we did, and it's -- but it's for charity. It's not that we didn't like it, unless you gave us the rooster. We hate that damn thing. But, anyway,

STU: $200 for that rooster, by the way. That's pretty impressive.

GLENN: It's a big rooster.

PAT: And ceramic.

GLENN: What? Come on. You don't --

STU: A big is a ceramic rooster.

PAT: Not paper mache or something. It's ceramic.

GLENN: So, what time does this thing end today? Do you know? Does it have a cutoff time?

STU: It ends 12-9, 2010, tomorrow, at 8:41 p.m.

GLENN: Oh. Tomorrow.

STU: Mountain time.

GLENN: 8:41 p.m.

STU: Mountain time.

GLENN: Mountain time.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: All right.

STU: And this has a chip on it. The --

GLENN: That's right. They all have chips.

STU: No. Just like --

GLENN: They all have chips. That way we can track --

STU: No, no. That's different. I'm talking about the actual ceramic rooster.

GLENN: Oh. What I'm saying is there is not a chip.

STU: No.

GLENN: Make sure you give the rooster to your most liberal friend.

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.
