Glenn Beck: Another Clinton fib

GLENN: If I hear another politician tell these stories, I'm going to blow my head off.  I can't take it.  I listen to these stories and I'm like, I can always find a bad story.  I can find a bad story.  You want a bad story?  I'll give you a bad story.  Have you heard about the children without hands?  For the love of Pete, stop with the individual stories.  I get it.  But now they got this story from, just from a deputy sheriff that apparently came up and said, you know what, Hillary, I heard a story.  I heard a story.

So what does she do?  She goes on stage and she tells this story.  Listen to this.

HILLARY CLINTON:  But I want to tell you.  You know, I heard a story that has just kind of haunted me.  I was visiting a couple of families, small town on the banks of the Ohio river, talking to the deputy sheriff there and he told me about a young woman who worked at the Pizza Parlor in town.  She worked for minimum wage.  She don't get many tips at the Pizza Parlor.  She was living --

GLENN:  Stop.  How does she know you don't get a lot of tips at the Pizza Parlor?  She may be -- they may know her as, you know, Tip Fanny.  You get so many tips because of her fanny.  You don't know she was -- was that part of the story?  "You don't get a lot of tips at a Pizza Parlor."  Well, especially if I'm waiting on a politician, I hear you clowns never leave tips.  And then you blame it -- oh, it was the secret service.  Are you blaming me?  They didn't do it again?  Well, next time we are leaving Tip Fanny just all kinds of tips.

HILLARY CLINTON:  Pretty modestly.  She got pregnant.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  She was having trouble.  She went to the hospital.  Hospital said, well, you don't have insurance.  She said, no, I don't.  They said, well, we can't see you until you give us $100.

GLENN:  Stop, stop.  Has anybody ever gone to the hospital where they've said that to you?  You've got to give us $100?  What kind of hospital?  It's like, you want my watch?  What kind of hospital says -- I mean, "You know, I tell you what, give me 50 bucks.  I got a syringe out in the back."

Stu, have you ever heard that?

STU:  I don't think so, no.

GLENN:  No.  Of course, I have health insurance.  So I don't know.  I can't relate to the little man.

STU:  That's right.

GLENN:  You've got to give me $100.  First of all, --

STU:  That's not going to cover.

GLENN:  It's a private hospital.  If they said that, then it had to be a private hospital.  You cannot reject people at the hospital.

STU:  You can't reject for emergency care.  So if she's just going tore --

GLENN:  She had a -- she's stillborn -- what is it?  Still birth?  She's going to give birth to a stillborn baby.  I could be wrong that it's not in the emergency category but I'm -- maybe it should be.

STU:  I think emergency rooms --

GLENN:  That and children without hands.

STU:  If it's an actual emergency, I don't think any hospital can refuse care.

GLENN:  Right.

STU:  I think that's part of the law.

GLENN:  Okay.  So anyway.  So the $100, got to give me $100 or I can't see you.  Then she goes on.

HILLARY CLINTON:  She says, where am I going to get $100?  They said, well, come back --

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  "But where am I going to get $100?"  Was all of these details in the story the way she heard it?  I mean, this is just -- when you hear how the tale was told to her, did he say that?  Did she have any clue as to the conversation that she's now making up?  But she said, where am I -- excuse me.  If you do it with an English accent, you'll even be better.  "Excuse me, sir."  And she came in and she had soot all over her face.  She was dressed like a little English orphan who had been cleaning chimneys and just walked right out of a Disney movie.  "But where am I going to find $100?  Oh, gosh, by golly, that seems like an awful lot of mean.  Oh, woe is me.  If I only had a bit of chocolate, everything would be okay.  But that's too much to ask for, for somebody who doesn't have health insurance."  I mean, come on!  She goes on.

HILLARY CLINTON:  They go, well, come back when you have the $100.  She came back about a week later.  She was having problems.  Same response:  We need $100.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  She went away.

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  I know there's -- the other hospital went out of business.  That was the other part.  She couldn't go to the hospital that was here in town because, you know, that one's closed down.  Wonder why.  Wonder why that one's closed down.  Do you think?  Maybe because they can't make a profit because maybe there are no doctors because everybody's suing the doctors all the time, nobody wants to -- do you remember when we were kids?  Yes!  When I had the MG that worked!  Do you remember when we were kids and everybody's mother was like, "You can be a doctor."  Who wants to be a doctor now?  You are sewing on eyelids to kids that don't have eyelids in third world countries and you are doing that happily because you can't help anybody here because everybody here is suing you all the time.  Who wants to be a doctor now?  Gee, I wonder why the hospital went out.  Because they didn't have health insurance?  Or because of the red tape and the litigation!  Maybe it's just -- I don't know.

HILLARY CLINTON:  Next time she came back to the hospital, she came in an ambulance.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  And she was in distress.  And the doctors and the nurses worked on her and couldn't save the baby.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  And she was so, so sick that they had to airlift her to the next biggest town that had a Medical Center.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  And everybody worked for about 15 days trying to save her life, but they weren't successful.

GLENN:  Stop.  Hang on just a second.  Boy, that bill's going to be big, huh?  Bet it's more than $100.  Everybody worked on her to save her life.  They worked for 15 days.  They airlifted her for 15 -- for 15 days they worked on her, taking her in a helicopter and everything else.  Boy.  Did they tell anyone that she didn't have the $100?  Because I don't even think they will take you up in a helicopter to sightsee for 15 minutes for $100.  Notice all of the details she has here?  She that is airlifting, the 15 days, everybody working hard, the conversations that she had?  "But I don't have $100."  Where is someone like me going to find $100?

HILLARY CLINTON:  And I'm sitting there listening to this story as this man is telling me and I'm thinking, you know --

GLENN:  This man.

HILLARY CLINTON:  It just hurts me that in our country, as rich and good a country as we are.

GLENN:  Yes.

HILLARY CLINTON:  This young woman and her baby died because she couldn't come up with $100.

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  My gosh, that would be horrible, wouldn't it, Stu?  Wouldn't it be horrible?

STU:  If that had happened, yes.

GLENN:  If that had happened, that would be horrible.  Unfortunately as Hillary told this story time and time again, people were, you know, listening to this story and somebody went, wait a minute, that sounds like the story of my daughter.  That's not true.  She wasn't poor.  She had the $100.  She had health insurance.  What are you talking about?  This is -- you've totally changed this story.  And you're using my dead daughter now as a campaign speech when it's not even true?

So Hillary Clinton this weekend after this came out was, of course, dodging bullets, you know.  I don't mean that -- that's unfortunate.  I don't want to make it sound like she's been dodging bullets.  I meant, you know, not literal bullets.  You know what I mean?  The kind of bullets that Hillary Clinton usually dodges, the, you know, mythical bullets.  I mean -- what did you say, Stu?

STU:  The hospital was a not for profit.

GLENN:  A not -- it was a not for profit?  Well, why wouldn't they take somebody without $100?

STU:  I don't know.

GLENN:  If you are not trying to make a profit, that's the hospital you go to.  I mean, the one you would go to and you're like, "I got $100.  I have a $100 bill.  Could I get some help, please?  And the profit hospital would say, $100 ain't going to cover squat.  Come back when you have a stack of cash.  But the not for profit hospital which, I must be out of my mind, the not for profit hospital, that should be the one that would take her.

STU:  You'd think.  And, of course, they were.  She was under care of the obstetrics practice affiliated with the hospital.

GLENN:  For 15 days?

STU:  She was never refused treatment and she was, in fact, insured.

GLENN:  Wow.  Oops, I could see how Hillary did this.  You know what she did?  She listened to someone who is, you know, at a rope line:  "Hey, I've got to tell you a story that I her."  I mean, you are kidding me, right?  The Clintons, the one that they say, oh, Matt Drudge is just nothing but a rumor mill.  Matt Drudge, oh, he's crazy!  He's completely irresponsible."  She's listening to somebody on a rope line and she's using it in a campaign speech to be able to get healthcare for the United States.  "It was so tragic and so sad that this country has to do that to a poor pregnant woman."  Completely false.  And there's like no effort to even check it out.

Now, here's what I really love about this story.  This is my favorite part.  So what you're saying is that Hillary Clinton was basing her policies and making the case for her policies on bogus information, on emotion, on fearmongering, that she was trying to push her policy through on information that couldn't be verified or -- I'm sorry -- wasn't even verified.  I mean, it's not even like she had every intelligence agency on planet Earth verifying the same information.  I'm sorry.  I want to be accurate.  Except for Syria.  I mean, Syria, you throw Syria in there and you're like, oh, well, Syria's is not true.  Oh, well, I didn't know that.  Why weren't we listening to Syria?  You know?  And Sean Penn.  We had Sean Penn and Syria trying to correct this information?  Oh, crap.  I didn't realize that.  (Sighing).  All right.

But Hillary Clinton can come out against that and make this huge -- but she can make a case for her policy by listening to somebody in the rope line.  That's the same.  That's the same.  I haven't checked with Syria yet.  Maybe we got this story from Syria.  It could have been Syria that came out and said --

STU:  Syria is standing by the story, that she didn't have insurance.

GLENN:  That she didn't have insurance?  Oh, okay.  Well, I don't know who to believe.  They were right the last time.

 

 

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.
