Michelle Obama: 'Our souls are broken'



So patriotic it'll bring a tear to you eye... Thanks to Insider Payallin for sending this one in...

GLENN: The media is heralding this guy (Barack Obama) as a Messiah. There was a story in the paper over the weekend about how "24" made this possible, how David Palmer's character on "24". People see Barack Obama and all of a sudden they're okay because they think he's David Palmer. I got news for ya. If you're so stupid that you think that Barack Obama is David Palmer, you shouldn't be allowed to be anywhere near a voting booth. If you didn't think a black man could be President of the United States until you saw a TV show, you shouldn't be allowed near a voting booth.

William Crystal has a great article today, op-ed column in the New York Times of all places, and I just, this speaks to the arrogance. Fast forward last Monday, Bill Crystal writes: Wisconsin, Michelle Obama, in the course of a stump speech marked, for the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country. "For the first time in my adult lifetime," we talked about this last week. For the first time in her adult lifetime. Now, she came out later in a speech and she said, no, no, no, it was just because of politics. You know what? It's a recent thing in my adult lifetime that I've been disgusted by politics. Isn't it a recent thing? I was disgusted in the 1970s. I had hope in the Eighties. I even had hope in the 1990s. I didn't lose my patriotism. I didn't lose my hope in America. I was never not proud of my country. I'm not proud of the way my government works. I'm not proud -- not even of the system. I'm proud of the system. I'm not proud of the weasels that we have elected. I'm not proud of the stupidity of some people, the way they look at Barack Obama and say, "Oh, I don't know about his policies but he's got a nice website. I don't know about his policies but I sure like that message of hope and change." I'm not proud of that, but I am hopeful that there are more people that pay attention to policies that just think that he's David Palmer because if the majority of Americans just are voting for him because they think he's David Palmer, we're doomed.

So Bill Crystal writes on. He says, "Life for regular folks has gotten worse over the course of my lifetime." This is according to Michelle Obama. "There the through the Republican and Democratic administrations, it hasn't gotten much better." Life has gotten so much better in America. We are just at the beginning in my adult lifetime for us to pay for the mistakes that we have made. But you can't tell me that life isn't better than it was when you were growing up.

Now, there are things that I'd sure like to change but it has nothing to do with government. It has everything to do with who we are, what we've done, what we've allowed to happen, what we've allowed in our own homes, what we've said, "It's all right." It has nothing to do with the government.

Now, she goes on and she says all last week, she was just talking about the political process. Bill Crystal says, "That's not what she was talking about. She argued in a Wisconsin speech that America's illness goes far beyond its flawed political process." She says, "Barack knows..." this is how spooky this stuff is. "Barack knows at some level there is a hole in our souls." This is a variation of language that she had used earlier in the campaign trail. Quote: "Barack is the only person in this race who understands that before we can work on the problems as a nation, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation." Ooh. Wow, we have broken souls and apparently Barack Obama, a vote for Barack Obama is a vote for healing your soul. "Barack Obama", quoting, "is going to demand that you shed your cynicism, that you put down your divisions, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones, that you push yourself to be better and that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved and uninformed." Okay, okay. Gosh, how is he going to do that? How is he going to force us to come out of our comfort zone? How is he going to force us to come out of isolation? How is he going to force us to put down our divisions? How is he going to force us to shed our cynicism, that we engage? How is it Barack will, quote, "Never allow us to go back to our lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed"? You don't have to work to improve your souls. Just vote for Barack Obama. Our lives will be changed if we vote for Barack Obama, and I believe that's true.

I go back to the word, I scroll across the paper yesterday. Arrogance. I told you on this program, and Bill Crystal points it out. I told you on this program, I think it was after Iowa. I said, listen to the speeches that Barack Obama gives. He's brilliant. It was only Barack Obama and then late in the campaign Mitt Romney that started using the word "We" over "I." Barack Obama has used it the whole time, we, we, we. Hillary Clinton will get up and say, I'm going to do this, I have this platform, I'm going to be able to do this. Barack Obama says we're going to make the change, we're here, yes, we can. I don't think he believes it. I told you at the time that I thought he was brilliant for doing it because it makes it look like it's us, we're in it together. And we are in it together, but I don't think he believes that we're in it together. I believe this guy believes he is the chosen one, not in a Messiah sort of way but a political Messiah. He's the one. He's the anointed one. He's the guy that America has been waiting for. He says we're going to make the change that we seek, we're the ones. We are the ones we've been waiting for. It's true. We are the ones. I said right after 9/11 the greatest American generation is this one. It's the one that stands up and does the hard work. I'm not sure he believes that because he's going to force us to push ourselves to be better. He's going to force us to engage. He's going to demand that you put down your divisions, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone. He's going to unanimous that we do that. I believe Barack Obama believes he's the one that we've been waiting for, not we're the one. He's the one that we've been waiting for. And what is it that he's going to force us to do? What is it that he is telling us, you're going to get out of your comfort zone? I'll tell you this, 52% income tax, that's out of my comfort zone. I don't know about anybody else.

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.
