PAT: There's something to this homeschooling thing. I'm going to look into


GLENN: There really --

PAT: I'm going to look into it.

GLENN: I think you've already done that. You just keep having children and

pumping them full of nonsense at school like, "Oh, George Washington was good."

Hate that. Then I get this. A girl comes up to me in line and she hands this

letter to me: Dear Mr. Beck, my name is Rachel. I'm from a small town near

Cleveland. I'm 15 1/2 years old. You know somebody is young when they actually

include the half year.

PAT: Mmm-hmmm.

GLENN: I'm 15 1/2 years old. I didn't think that I would be able to communicate

all my thoughts in the hour that you were going to be at the book signing. So I

wrote you this letter. I started being an avid member of your audience when my

debate coach had wrongly chastised me for listening to too much Beck and Rush.

Having almost never heard of you, notwithstanding my status as a Reagan

conservative, I decided to delve into the somewhat familiar sounding characters.

I love this. This is exactly what happened to me when I went to college. They

told me not to read something and I read it. You keep going, Rachel. She said, I

started to listen to your show and what caught my attention was I agreed with

almost everything you said. Being a conservative, I now consider myself a bit

more libertarian. Surprisingly odd for a Freshman -- now I'm a Sophomore, but I

digress -- at an all girls Catholic college preparation high school. At my

school we have adopted surprisingly progressive principles: Greening of the

school, teaching social justice, and on and on. I guess I turned onto your show

and then started reading your books and radio as a form of self-education. At

first I'll admit I did take your word for everything you said that was

happening. Then you lost me when you started discussing the Weather Underground.

So I began to do some independent research. I stumbled upon a website called

What you were saying was spot on.

America's First Christmas on Dec 15th in Wilmington, Ohio -

Have you ever heard of that website? Joe, have you ever heard of

We just got this tip from a 15-year-old that sounds really smart. We should look

into it.

PAT: I'll bet he costs less than Joe, too. I mean, look. (Laughing).

GLENN: You know what? Call Rachel. Call Rachel. Let's get Rachel on the phone.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: We're looking for a new head of research. June came and when school was

dismissed for the term, I began listening to your radio program. I heard you

were holding an event in Washington, D.C. I wanted to go more than anything

Eddie ever wanted, the red huffy with the black banana seat. You had better

believe it was difficult to get my father -- my parents are divorced -- to take

me to D.C., let alone on a school weekend. Eventually having heard enough

begging for a long time, my father said yes. It was my favorite experiences with

my father. I wholeheartedly thank you for all of the time and effort you and

your team spent on 8/28. I can never repay you. Today was an important day. You

said the revolution is now. The prince was nearly attacked -- she must have

written this last week -- the prince was nearly attacked and amidst all of the

catastrophic news, I received my PSAT scores. I got a 1750. I didn't take my

PSAT. Is that pretty good? 1750? Nicole, PSAT, 1750?

STU: She's not 11. I think she took her PSAT a few years ago.

GLENN: Early -- closer than you do.

STU: Well, yes. Yes, closer than I did.

GLENN: If you are -- if you are correct, and God hopes that you are not, I am

ready for the perfect storm. Over the past year or so I have amassed a large

group of freethinking minds like you and me who have spread the truth and we are

prepared. Thank God for the time that we were all born into. With firm reliance

and the protection of divine providence, we pledge to each our lives, our

fortunes and our sacred honor. Isn't that nice?

PAT: Yeah, very. Very.

GLENN: 15-year-old girl. Yesterday I asked -- we played that 15-year-old kid.

Remember, what was it?

PAT: From London?

GLENN: From London? Yeah. We were -- we played a 15-year-old kid from London and

I asked yesterday, where are our 15-year-old kids that understand the republic?

That are that well spoken?

PAT: And there you go. Right? I mean, she's -- well, she's 15 1/2. So --

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Does that qualify?

GLENN: No, I --

PAT: No?

STU: Where are the 15-year-old kids?

PAT: That just turned 15 today?

STU: Yes, today.

GLENN: Today. Where are they?

PAT: Where are they?

GLENN: I think this is great. Listen, I want you to come to Ohio. If you're

anywhere in the Ohio area, tomorrow we're in Wilmington, which is this little

town, was devastated or so CBS News would have you believe and the New York

Times. I think this town is finding themselves through, well, refiners fire or

as our song America the Beautiful says, liberating strife. I think they are

finding themselves. And amazing things are happening in this town, and we'll

tell you some of them today and tomorrow. But if you're anywhere in the area, I

know the weather is cold and the snow is billowing and everything else. But we

sure would like to see you tomorrow. We'll be there all day in Wilmington and

the stores are open and just dressed this town up and they have really gotten

behind this thing. I think this is going to be an amazing day tomorrow. And if

you can't make it to Wilmington, please go to, is it Wilmington General Store?

Do we know? They have put a lot

of the stuff online. They tell me that the servers continue to crash because so

many people are going on it. This is such a blessing to this town. So if you do

that or see it tomorrow, check out all the information at

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?
