Soros’ Media Matters burned by their own illogical logic

GLENN: So Media Matters has been -- these are really despicable people. Well, I can't say the people. I don't know the people. I just know what they do is despicable. And Media Matters is a group of people that running Media Matters, if I'm not mistaken, we went over it last night, the guy running Media Matters is one of the guys who helped orchestrate the G-20 black clad riot people, right? Really bad revolutionary people. Funded now in the open by George Soros. Never before out in the open. But George Soros doesn't care anymore. He's like it will come and accuse me of stuff, I might as well just be open about it. I'm a big evil dude. And so now he's given them a million dollars. I think they just hired somebody whose sole goal in life is to bring me down. And have at it, brother. What they're trying to do is they're trying to paint Tea Party people as violent. And everything that we are not. There are nut jobs in every walk of life. There are nut jobs on the right and the left. But that's not who people are. Not on the right or the left. They're not nut jobs. And I am so sick and tired of the media carrying water for the crazy revolutionaries in this country and trying to make people like you into a nut job. Because that's not who we are. Well, here's the satisfying story of maybe the year. Pat.

PAT: There's a Florida man whose wife had apparently been recently fired by the local school system. Kind of took matters into his own hands yesterday. He went into a school board meeting armed with a handgun, and he was standing right in front of them, maybe five, ten feet away from them and started shooting at them.

GLENN: Now, hang on -- hang on. Here's where -- I know that sounds like it's not supposed to be satisfying.

STU: This part isn't.

PAT: This part, no.

GLENN: No, this part is. The guy is also a really bad shot. He's five feet in front of people and he doesn't hit any of them.

PAT: Missed everybody.

GLENN: Loser times ten. You can tell he's a liberal because he can't shoot.

[Laughter]

So he doesn't hurt anybody.

STU: Thank God.

PAT: No. Eventually he's wounded by security and then he shot himself.

GLENN: So at point-blank range he's an effective shot?

PAT: Yes. Yes, he got that job done. So then you look into his background a little bit.

GLENN: Uhoh.

STU: Strangely enough, because I know the Tea Party is the one that's supposed to be violent.

GLENN: They're only learning it from me. They're only somehow or another subliminally I'm telling them to do these things.

STU: We learned that from Media Matters again specifically cited Tea Party violence when they got their million dollar George Soros donation. This is interesting it comes from TheBlaze.com.

GLENN: That's a good website. I don't know who runs that.

STU: It's really good. "Clay Duke, the man who opened fire on a Florida school board Tuesday posted a last testament on Facebook decrying the wealthy and linking to a slew of progressive sites, including Media Matters." Weird. They are just -- all their violent rhetoric, we've been warning about it.

GLENN: I've got to ask why George Soros is trying to whip people into a frenzy like this and get them to kill people all the time. I don't understand it.

PAT: You know the hateful rhetoric has to stop.

GLENN: I have seen hateful rhetoric like this before.

PAT: Media Matters.

GLENN: It was back in the days I was in San Francisco, and it was hateful rhetoric, and it's got to stop. I love that line from Nancy Pelosi. Yes, the hateful rhetoric it was from the progressives. It was from conservatives. It was from people like Jim Jones who was -- you know the Jim Jones story is so amazing, the Kool-Aid guy. He was a communist. They tried to make him look like he was a religious guy. No, no, no he was a communist who went so far left, get this, that the people in San Francisco said, "You're a freak."

[Laughter]

That's like when he's like I'm taking my Kool-Aid and going to the jungle. Now, let me make one thing clear, because I know that there's someplace, some pimply faced, sweaty 18-year-old kid who wants to make a name for himself. I'm going to be George Soros's hero, and he's right now in his mom's basement typing away his latest blog for Media Matters. Let me make this very clear. Media Matters did not try to go in and shoot the school board. It was the crazy nut job that did it. Period. Nobody's responsible for making anybody go do anything violent except crazy people who decide that violence is the answer. Yeah, that's who did it.

STU: And Media Matters is absolutely not responsible for that. It's his fault. However by Media Matters' own definition it is their fault because that's what they say about the right all the time.

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?
