Larry King's career is over

Pat Gray is seen here on GlennBeck.TV, a feature available exclusively to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...

PAT: Sadly, or maybe mercifully, last night was Larry King's final night of broadcast. And beautifully Katie Couric marked the occasion with a heartfelt poem that I feel really quite compelled to share.

KATIE: I decided, Larry, that I was going to write you a poem bemoaning the fact that you're leaving your home. What are we to do without our top talker? Here's an ode filled with love from me and Miss Walker as you hang up your suspenders on your dressing room door, I speak for us all when I say we want more, more of the show that we instantly loved for 25 years couldn't get enough of. Your unique take on politics, culture and crime, never cutting off guests, except for Barbara, always giving them time. You made NAFTA exciting, and that's hard to do. And you scored Paris Hilton's post-jail interview.

PAT: And gave me the flu.

KATIE: Sinatra, Clint Eastwood, Becall, so many stars I just can't name them all. From Heather Mills' legs to Ross Perot's twang, you always cajole, not harass or harangue, but there were moments when your guests had a cow, Seinfeld wasn't cancelled, Larry, but I guess you know that by now.

PAT: I doubt it.

KATIE: Mike Tyson KO'd without throwing a punch. And you got Miss California's sash in a bunch. You went gaga for Gaga, Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson, alas it was Brando who gave you some action. Eight presidents joined you from Nixon to Obama and you brought us each moment of OJ's long drama. Some startling shows I'll never forget. Tammy Fay's eyes. Ted Haggard's regret. Your guests made us cry, made us laugh, made us think. Winona Judd told you about a podwink. I hadn't heard that before, so I looked the phrase up, it's a miracle, blessing, an overfilled cup. That's what you are. And as Old Blue Eyes might say: The best is yet to come, Larry. You did it your way.

PAT: Ah, that was beautiful. That moved me deeply. And really, really honestly did. It was reminiscent -- it was a poem given in a fashion reminiscent of not Genghis Khan, as John Kerry would say, more reminiscent of Al Gore on that fine day.

GORE: One thin September soon A floating continent disappears

In midnight sun Vapors rise as Fever settles on an acid sea

Neptune's bones dissolve Snow glides from the mountain Ice fathers floods for a season A hard rain comes quickly Then dirt is parched Kindling is placed in the forest For the lightning's celebration

Couric: An ode, to the King

Unknown creatures Take their leave, unmourned Horsemen ready their stirrups Passion seeks heroes and friends The bell of the city

On the hill is rung The shepherd cries The hour of choosing has arrived Here are your tools.

JEFF: I'm so glad you read that.

PAT: Me too.

JEFF: I'm happy to hear it.

PAT: Me too.

JEFF: Outstanding.

PAT: Best part of the whole thing.

JEFF: I'm so glad you read that poem.

PAT: Us, too, Harry, us, too. It has added 365 days of joy to this program. Neptunes bone dissolve.

JEFF: I am so glad you read that.

PAT: Yep, we all are. You know, tis the season for an Al Gore poem, really. But this isn't -- that's probably a little too obnoxious for this. We need something more generic. Maybe something like this, for another Al Gore poem. [Music] it was the night before Christmas, when all through the energy efficient solar-paneled house not a creature was stirring, because humankind had killed them all with manmade global warming brought on by our ways. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care. But we dare not light a fire, children, because of the damage the smoke could do to our atmosphere and the trees. The trees. The children were nestled all snug in their beds that were filled with biodegradeable 100 percent recycled material, and the only lights a twinkling were of the CFL energy saving variety no incandescents here. While visions of sugar free trans fat free healthy fruits and vegetables danced in their heads, with Tipper in her kerchief and I in my earth-friendly Green Peace logoed cap, we had just settled in for a long winter's nap. To rest my wary planet-loving body before it dissolves the way Neptune's bones did [music] I still have it. I hit those vocals every time. I still have it top 40 --

JEFF: I'm so glad you read that.

PAT: Thank you. You are -- thank you, Jeffie. Thank you, in my own voice there, yes. I think it was pretty safe. And I think it was pretty -- I think it was pretty Christmassy, and I think it was pretty touching, I think it was pretty meaningful.

JEFF: It was beautiful, thank you again.

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?

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.
