GLENN: Can we just enjoy the moment for a second? I never, ever, ever, ever, ever -- you could have had a gun to my head and said, Glenn, you have to tell me right now, will there ever be a time that you would actually enjoy Kool and the Gang on the day that Hillary Clinton swept in the election and I would say, no, you're going to have to blow my -- (gunshot), no. And I would have been wrong.

By the way, one other thing I have learned, do not ever make a prediction in this election. I mean, I counted her out last week, counted her out. Should have listened to my earlier prediction which is never count the Clintons out; they don't lose. They don't know how to lose. Oh, it's time to come together? It's time to come together, yes.

Good news. Hey, Pennsylvania, this love train is coming your way. Woo-hoo. Tonight on television I have, who is it, John Fund. He did a whole synopsis on this Rezco thing. Is anybody really following this? I mean, I know that, you know, we got a lot of, you know, political geeks that listen to this show but we also have a lot of normal people that listen to this show. No, no, I mean no offense to the political geeks. You're people, too. But we've got a lot of people who are just like, "I don't know what the hell's going on in my country right now. I pay attention but I can't do it. Blood shoots out of my eyes." You're like me. Rezco, he's a bad guy, he, like, did something wrong with mean. He's a developer, what, he's connected some way with Barack Obama. Tonight we're going to talk to John Fund. I was really looking into this yesterday. So far none of this stuff is anything but an accusation and all of the accusations are coming from the Clinton camp. You know all those dirty tricks that, you know, those Republicans do, those Rovian dirty tricks, those smear campaigns? All of the stuff about Rezco is coming from the Clinton camp. Now they have, in the last two weeks they have released a picture of Barack Obama in Somalian gear. Can you imagine if Karl Rove would have done that? My gosh, C.A.R.E. would have been at the White House demanding his head and I believe possibly his actual head. "Now, leave the body inside; we want his head." Can you imagine what would have been said if anybody who was a conservative would have released that picture because that picture means nothing? Do we have Madelyn Albright in a berka? Which, by the way, did a lot for her looks. No, I thought it looked very good on her.

Anyway, can you imagine doing that? Then what they did is they tied Rezco to Barack Obama. Now, granted there's a lot of stuff to be -- for instance, Obama bought a house at the same day that Rezco bought adjoining property. I believe he bought -- Obama bought it above market price. Rezco bought his at or below market price and then he sold him some property, you know, some adjoining property right away. Rezco -- and just listen to this. This is coming from the Clinton campaign. "Rezco has been to Syria like eight times in the last 18 months." He could have been on an aid mission. I don't know. He mean, he could have been over there going, you guys are crazy; you've got to stop. Hey, go, USA. I mean, I don't know what he was doing over there. "He was over in Syria. Did you know that?" And by the way, he's also connected to a guy, a billionaire who lives in London who is connected to Saddam Hussein. Now, the guy in London says, "I'm not connected to Saddam Hussein. My family was brutalized by Saddam Hussein." But the Clinton campaign has said, "Well, we think there -- we don't know, but he may have been laundering money for Saddam Hussein. Oh, and we don't know but we think that there was a chance encounter with Barack Obama and this Iraqi billionaire in a hotel in Chicago." I mean, they're just, she's using the dirty tricks to get him out. Now, all of those things may be true. I don't know. Probably... not. I'm not counting any of these things out. Probably not. But can you imagine? This is Whitewater. This is what she said the Republicans were doing! I just love this.

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


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.
