Typical Liberal calls Glenn

GLENN: No, Linda, that's hate mongering. You and I know it. That's hate mongering. Thanks for your call.


 Kathy, you're on the Glenn Beck program.


 CALLER: Oh, good morning to you.


 GLENN: How are you?


 CALLER: I respectfully disagree with most of your policies and what you say on the air, especially in the last week. Listen.


 GLENN: Okay.


 CALLER: Let's -- I hope you don't mind.


 GLENN: I don't mind. It's America.


 CALLER: Let's refer to the war of the trillion on this war in Iraq which really didn't have to happen at all. You know, when people in this country need healthcare, they need healthcare and if they don't get it, they go on disability and more money is taken from people. And I want to tell you, if we can spend a trillion dollars on war, we can spend trillion dollars on our own people.


 GLENN: Why is government -- wait. Why is more money taken away from people? It's just government healthcare. Government just has that money.


 CALLER: Excuse me?


 GLENN: You said disability, people go on disability, then even more money.


 CALLER: Healthcare, you'll go on disability because your situation will get worse.


 GLENN: Kathy, do you read -- you're a liberal?


 CALLER: I'm not completely a liberal but I can tell you there's a lot of things that I believe Hillary Clinton is very passionate about and so am I.


 GLENN: I'm just wondering, do you read the New York Times?


 CALLER: No, I don't. I'm sorry.


 GLENN: You don't?


 CALLER: I'm not even in New York.


 GLENN: People read the New York Times in other cities. You should read it. I think it was last Sunday. May I -- may I? May I? May I?




 GLENN: I allowed you to speak. Thank you. You should read the New York Times. You can go online. You can find the story. Stu, I don't know if you have it or if I brought it in for television. It was a front page story on universal healthcare from the New York Times and what they're having a problem with right now is the story was that there are a lot of people that have the ability to buy healthcare and choose not to. Then they had a story of a woman who is in, I think she was 23 years old and she, you know, had the money to buy healthcare but she decided to buy new furniture and to buy some other things in her house, et cetera, et cetera. She got sick and now we're paying for it.


 CALLER: All right.


 GLENN: She is --


 CALLER: We're talking about one person here that you're quoting.




 CALLER: I'm talking about the trillions of people out there.


 GLENN: Trillions?


 CALLER: That doesn't have the money for healthcare and I was one of them and I was working three jobs, bringing up two children.


 GLENN: Trillions?


 CALLER: Excuse me, Glenn. If you haven't lived it, you haven't walked in those shoes, you don't know it.


 GLENN: That is universal healthcare if it's going to cover trillions of people that are uncovered. The actual number --


 CALLER: We spend trillions of dollars in Iraq to take care of the other country and make sure they go Democratic. Let's take care of our own country. Let's take care of our economy. We make nothing here anymore.


 GLENN: Okay, I don't know what that has to do with healthcare. The actual number --


 CALLER: It has a lot to do with healthcare. If you don't have the money, you don't have the jobs, you don't have healthcare.


 GLENN: We're the ones who make all the drugs because we're not -- we don't have universal healthcare, we're not socialized in our medicine. That's the reason why people, dictators and everything else come here to have medicine. We have the best access to medicine in the world because of that. I'll agree with you on spending but then you can't give the biggest spending program ever created on top of it and say we need universal healthcare. By the way, just want to give you the numbers. The number is 47 million uninsured Americans. That's the actual number that everybody wants to throw around. However when you get down to it, when you take out those people who are 20, have the money and just want to spend it elsewhere on buying other things, don't think that they're -- because they're gamblers, they think to themselves, I'm not going to get sick, I'm not going to spend the money on healthcare, when you do that, when you also take out the people who are in between jobs, who are qualified for COBRA, who are going -- the average person is about six months away from having health insurance because they're in between jobs or something like that. When you take out that, the actual number of uninsured in this country is about 14 million people. Now, I know that's -- and I'm sorry. Stu is telling me it's actually much less than that.


 STU: It depends what categories you are taking out. You also have to take out, I believe, illegal aliens.


 GLENN: Let's just say it's 15 million people.


 STU: I would say it's about half that.


 GLENN: Whatever. That's still a long way from trillions of people. And we can cover 14 million or 8 million, we're talking about covering 300 million.

Critical Race Theory: A special brand of evil


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.

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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
