Comrade Update! - Trickle Down Communism

GLENN: Comrade!


 


 STU: Yes, comrade!


 


 GLENN: Good news from the Western front!


 


 STU: I bet there is.


 


 GLENN: Talk radio is starting to suck beyond belief because they're adopting our Soviet principles.


 


 STU: Soviet talk radio.


 


 GLENN: Yes.


 


 STU: In the motherland.


 


 GLENN: Yes.


 


 STU: That was low quality radio.


 


 GLENN: That's good low quality radio only to be found in a socialist nation.


 


 STU: And soon hopefully the Fairness Doctrine might come back and they can tell us exactly what we can and cannot say! On the Western front.


 


 GLENN: Yes. Comrade, we have been working towards this for a very, very long time. I remember, comrade, back in the Fifties. We looked at each other wearing those furry hats.


 


 STU: Yes.


 


 GLENN: The star on them.


 


 STU: Kind of stumbling over really cheap vodka.


 


 GLENN: Very cheap vodka.


 


 STU: Free vodka.


 


 GLENN: For a while there, there was more vodka in my bloodstream than blood but that's a whole different story.


 


 STU: There was blood in your vodka?


 


 GLENN: Yes. Do you remember when we were planning the destruction of the West? Those were the glory days.


 


 STU: Those were the -- you mean when we were doing it overtly?


 


 GLENN: Yeah, when we were actually getting together and we were like, comrade, we've got another way to destroy the West.


 


 STU: Those were the days.


 


 GLENN: And remember when we thought we should start small and then just let it trickle down, kind of like that, what was his face, Reagan with his trickle down economics.


 


 STU: Oh, the enemy.


 


 GLENN: Trickle-down communism. It's fantastic. So what we decided to do, if you remember, comrade, was --


 


 STU: I do remember.


 


 GLENN: -- let's bleed them dry. Let's help them make just stupid decision after stupid decision after stupid decision. We could use our tools like the unions and get them into all kinds of pensions and all kinds of special programs. It would be fantastic. Oh. Well, comrade, good news from the Western front, the Far West. We've got a city in California now that is -- are you ready? The first to go bankrupt. It's fantastic.


 


 STU: Comrade.


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: Has Dennis Kucinich got another mayoral job?


 


 GLENN: No, he's been busy, he's been busy on the federal level. Almost had him, too. Damn, those space aliens.


 


 Here's the story, comes out of California. There's a financial crisis now. More than three years after the state took over the city's debt-ridden public schools, the state did --


 


 STU: Should we just -- are we just passing over that part, comrade?


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: That the state took over?


 


 GLENN: Took over their debt-ridden public schools?


 


 STU: What, no, this was all part of the plan. This is fantastic.


 


 GLENN: As soon as the state crumbles, it can be kicked up to the Feds. Then when the Feds, when they crumble, we're there to pick up the pieces, comrade!


 


 STU: Oh, the Politburo can just take over.


 


 GLENN: So three years after the state took over the city's debt-ridden public schools as a result of snowballing police and firefighter salaries and overtime expenses coupled with plummeting tax revenue from a weak housing market, this city is finally completely out of cash. Spending $10 million more than they received in tax revenue. They would take in $4 million; they would spend $10 million. The city council and the mayor have met on it and they said, we've just been making mistakes for a very long time. Quote: We've been spending money that we haven't had for a very long time. It was only a matter of time before this happened.


 


 Comrade.


 


 STU: Oh, comrade.


 


 GLENN: This is great news.


 


 STU: Comrade, you know what's great about it, too?


 


 GLENN: What?


 


 STU: Is that we've convinced the people in the Western Front that competition just won't work in schools. There shouldn't be vouchers and people choosing good schools and rewarding them.


 


 GLENN: Of course not.


 


 STU: No, we should just give these people all of the money so they can spend two and a half times that amount and then fail. This is fantastic. And the best part is they are not even going to get a good education with that money.


 


 GLENN: Now listen, my comrade friend. The best news is this is happening in California. We have California on the brink of disaster. If California fails, they will shove all that debt to the federal government, and the federal government says we'll have to save California because California, we can't let all those people fail out there, we can't let them lose their house, we can't let them not have fire and police and school. We've got to take it on as a nation and we'll shoulder the burden together. Then it will just be a giant domino effect.


 


 STU: Let's make sure I understand, comrade, because this seems to be working well.


 


 GLENN: Yeah.


 


 STU: So Government controls the schools.


 


 GLENN: Yes.


 


 STU: And then the government-controlled schools fail. So the government-controlled state takes over the government-controlled school and then the government-controlled federal takes over the government-controlled state which overtook the government-controlled school and all of them failed.


 


 GLENN: And then, and then when it all fails, then the global government can take on everyone's debt and we can share the pain and the wealth. Comrade, great, great news from the Western front today! Oh, that's great. (Gunshot).

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.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
