GOP Radio - Where We Love McCain!

GLENN: Well, good morning this morning and afternoon. It's WGOP radio, all Republican radio all the time. My, oh, my, the primary in Florida last night. Oh, these Republicans are happy last night. John McCain won, John McCain. How the hell did that happen? Here's the Eagles. Hello? Hello?


 


 STU: Hello? What are you doing?


 


 GLENN: Who is this?


 


 STU: This is your program director.


 


 GLENN: What do you mean what am I doing? I'm playing --


 


 STU: First of all, you stepped all over that intro.


 


 GLENN: I did it with style.


 


 STU: No, I mean, you were talking right over what they were singing.


 


 GLENN: That's all right. I'm not really in a mood today, okay? You know what I'm saying?


 


 STU: Why aren't you happy? Big primary last night. We had to talk about Republican issues.


 


 GLENN: John McCain won.


 


 STU: Yeah, John McCain, Republican, frontrunner.


 


 GLENN: We're the Republican radio station.


 


 STU: I know, I know. And John McCain's Republican. Look at the odds right after his bid.


 


 GLENN: What did you say?


 


 STU: The Rs right after his name.


 


 GLENN: But he is not really a Republican.


 


 STU: No, I said John McCain, R.


 


 GLENN: Have you seen his amnesty proposal?


 


 STU: I know, it's fantastic. I now love it.


 


 GLENN: What do you mean you now love it?


 


 STU: I now love it. It's going to be great. The --


 


 GLENN: We were on the air for months hating it.


 


 STU: No, it was --


 


 GLENN: This guy was in charge of the amnesty program. He partnered with Ted Kennedy.


 


 STU: Yeah, I know. We love partnering with Ted Kennedy. I think this is the future of the party.


 


 GLENN: You know who Juan Hernandez is, right?


 


 STU: Oh, Juan, he is a great whopper. He is going to be fantastic.


 


 GLENN: You hated Juan Hernandez. Juan Hernandez is the guy who says there should be one great state, Mex-Ameri-Canada. He says that Canada and Mexico and the United States should just all get together, once a Mexican, always a Mexican.


 


 STU: This is ridiculous. You are talking about yesterday when I said that?


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: You're talking about yesterday when I said I didn't like Juan Hernandez.


 


 GLENN: Yes.


 


 STU: This is today. John McCain won last night. Now I love him. I need you to get a little bit more pep in your voice when you are doing these breaks. These songs are way down key. They are low-key. People are excited today to vote for John McCain for President.


 


 GLENN: Hang on. Hey, that's the eagles and desperado on WGOP radio where, whoo, cowboy, John McCain won last night. And I mean, it's -- hey. Maybe Joe Lieberman could run with him because they're good buddies, too. Joe Lieberman and John McCain and wouldn't that be, you know, the whole global warming thing. They will be on top of that one with John McCain in the White House. And congratulations from all of us here at WGOP where the party goes on.


 


 (Music playing.)


 


 GLENN: Hello?


 


 STU: Hello?


 


 GLENN: Why are you calling me again?


 


 STU: Well, first of all, I don't even think that last song was over. You started a song in the middle of it.


 


 GLENN: I can't take it anymore.


 


 STU: I think that's the thing to do. Second of all, this is a sad song. Where is the party?


 


 GLENN: This isn't a sad song. This is a true song, all of us living in the ghetto oh.


 


 STU: I don't know what you're basing that on.


 


 GLENN: McCain/Lieberman, man, McCain/Lieberman. You have global warming. $1.2 trillion every year.


 


 STU: Well, yeah, but you've got to think about, don't be a global warming denier. Is that what you are?


 


 GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. This is WGOP radio. When did we ever say that?


 


 STU: Since last night. We now believe you are in the pocket of big oil if you disagree with anything related to global warming.


 


 GLENN: I thought you were against all of that stuff.


 


 STU: People said, look, forget about Islamic terrorism. Think about 0.7 degrees over a century. Whoa!


 


 GLENN: I just don't, I don't think I can do it. I'm sorry.


 


 STU: People love global warming. Republicans are all about global warming, Glenn.


 


 GLENN: How are we going to afford, if the guy doesn't even believe in tax cuts?


 


 STU: Tax cuts? Tax cuts hurt the economy, of course.


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: I'm not -- I can't possibly support a tax cut that's going to go to the richest 1%. That's what all about, huh? You know what I'm saying.


 


 GLENN: Hang on, I think my song is ending.


 


 STU: I don't think it is. I don't think it's over yet.


 


 GLENN: I think it's over. WGOP radio and where, damn the rich. That's why we're fighting now for John McCain because, boy, those rich, huh? We've got to think about those little babies in the ghetto there and the only way to do it is to put the rich people in the ghettos next to him because maybe they've got a warm jacket they could throw over that baby and that, of course,, that's the way to solve it here at WGOP radio. And congratulations to John McCain who won last night and, of course, voted against those tax cuts, was against them until, I don't know, a couple of weeks ago but he is reaching out now to the conservatives now that he's got all the liberals and so we know we can believe him. Here's a little Elton John on GOP.


 


 (Music playing. )


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: I mean, have you ever been on the radio before? You stepped all over that intro again.


 


 GLENN: It's because my engineer who hung up on Rudy Giuliani yesterday --


 


 STU: No, we fired Andros, didn't we?


 


 GLENN: No, I don't think so. But nothing in this radio station makes sense anymore. I mean, John McCain, man, how can you now be for John McCain? He is the guy who told the world Wall Street Journal, may I quote?


 


 STU: Yeah, sure, I'd love to hear a quote.


 


 GLENN: More recently McCain has told conservatives he would be happy to appoint the likes of Chief Justice John Roberts to the Supreme Court but he indicated he might draw the line on Samuel Alito because he wore his conservatism on his sleeve.


 


 STU: Amen to that, huh? You know, I tell you one of the things that's fantastic about this country and John McCain is that none of these damn conservatives will get jobs anymore in the Supreme Court.


 


 GLENN: But I thought we wanted Supreme Court justices that were conservative that, you know, read the Constitution as the founding fathers intended it.


 


 STU: Are you referring to when I said that yesterday?


 


 GLENN: Yes.


 


 STU: Yeah, but last night John McCain won. Did you not see the news? He won. So now my principles are different. Do you understand how it works? He won by 5%, 5%!


 


 GLENN: Hang on. I think my song is over.


 


 STU: No, it's not. I can hear it. We're not even halfway through the song.


 


 GLENN: This may be one of the last times I'm actually going to say anything. WGOP radio and sad songs, oh, they say so very much, don't they? They really do. On WGOP radio, good morning, this afternoon and evening. I'm glad that you've tuned in and this may be one of our last broadcasts because John McCain, who is not a phone thrower, of course, has his vindictiveness in check, certainly wouldn't be a guy who could lead the charge for bipartisan support for, you know, the Fairness Doctrine. Of course, he loves everybody on talk radio and their support and I know that he, of course, would not lead that bipartisan support for the Fairness Doctrine and go ahead and put that thing through because he understood freedom of speech as evidenced by McCain/Feingold.


 


 Now another great hit tune on WGOP. Where it's going to be sunny today and a high of 75 degrees and maybe a little bit of rain tonight, low of 44 and we --.


 


 (Music playing.)


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: You just waited about 10 seconds and then started the weather. Why did you do that?


 


 GLENN: I think it was Dan Andros.


 


 STU: Are you pinning that one on Andros, too? Listen, one problem with your last break there.


 


 GLENN: Yeah.


 


 STU: You didn't mention any Democratic issues. I don't know if you know --


 


 GLENN: WGOP radio.


 


 STU: Yeah, I know, but campaign finance reform means that you have to like issues such as tax raises just as much as you like the ones as tax cuts.


 


 GLENN: You know, I just saw a station newsletter.


 


 STU: Right.


 


 GLENN: I don't think this is a good idea. I think this will destroy WGOP.


 


 STU: No, no, no, no, no. John McCain won last night by 5 points.


 


 GLENN: Well, I know. But the newsletter.


 


 STU: Yeah.


 


 GLENN: You know, the McCain Times.


 


 STU: Right.


 


 GLENN: I don't know if this is a good idea. I think it might destroy us.


 


 STU: No, it's going to be great, talks all about the important issues that people care about like raising taxes.


 


 GLENN: You just renamed moveon.org's newsletter.


 


 STU: Well, yeah. I mean, people care about the important issue of the day, global warming, making sure we shut down Guantanamo, what people care about today in the Republican party. I mean, he won by 5%.


 


 GLENN: Hang on just a second. I think my song's ending.


 


 STU: No, I can hear it. The song, this is not even -- we're not even --


 


 GLENN: Well, here we are, WGOP, good morning and afternoon, good evening. I'm glad you're here listening to us. Of course the big news today that we're all excited about, John McCain won Florida last night and, of course, we're all sticking to our values, the guy who we all loved so much last summer we are now rooting for and I think that's what makes WGOP the icon that it is and always will be. So we're excited. We're going to sign off the air after this commercial message.


 


 VOICE: Hillary Clinton says she's the candidate for change. Fact: Hillary Clinton is a career politician and seeks nothing but power. Fact: Hillary Clinton's husband once served as President for two terms. Fact: Hillary Clinton lived in the White House for eight years. That doesn't sound like change. It sounds like more of the same old, same old Washington politics. Don't make the same mistake again. It's time to vote for real change. Elect an outsider to put an end to the Bush/Clinton quagmire, someone without all the ties to inside beltway corruption and Washington lobbyists, someone who will give America the fresh start it so desperately needs. That someone is here and they're winning: John McCain. A true Washington outsider for change. John McCain has served over 25 years in Washington, D.C. Since his two terms as congressman, John McCain has been a United States senator ever since January 3rd, 1987. Eight years of George W. Bush being right on most issues is long enough. It's time for America to have a President who isn't afraid to be wrong. John McCain isn't afraid. He's been wrong on almost every policy he's touched and he's never lived in the White House.

 GLENN: That's fantastic, yeah!

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

wal_172619/Pixabay

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.
