Glenn Beck: Howard's hypocrisy




Howard Dean

GLENN:  Welcome to the program.  Glad you're here.  I can't believe anybody actually buys the hypocrisy of these politicians.  I really, I mean, it amazes me.  Howard Dean comes out and he says as swing voters participating in focus groups commissioned by the DNC have brought up John McCain's age unprompted.  This is my favorite.  "We didn't bring it up.  They volunteered it."  He said that they have concerns about, voters have concerns about McCain's age.  One was a health concern.  I'm quoting.  One was a health concern and the other was this really interesting thing they brought up that his views are old-fashioned.  I love that, old-fashioned.  Who even uses the words "Old-fashioned" anymore.  It's like using the term, you know, it's electric.  It's electric.  How does that -- does the door, the back of your SUV just open up by itself?  It's electric.  Come on, it's old-fashioned.  He said they're not going to bring this up, though.  He said, I doubt we'll bring it up in the election.  There's somewhat of a higher ethical bar on what we do.  We don't have Lee Atwaters or Karl Roves on our side.  We don't have to.

Are you kidding me?  Listen to what this guy is saying, "I want you to know we're not going to bring up the fact that a lot of people think he's old-fashioned.  We're not going to bring up the fact that, ooh, he can croak at any second, we won't, because we have higher ethical standards."  You're bringing it up now!  Are you that stupid or are you just growing horns?  I mean, come on.  And they expect us to accept the fact that, oh, well, they do.  They have higher ethical standards.  That's great.  I don't think we have to bring up the age.  I don't think we will.  Really?  Really?  You don't think you'll bring it up?  If you have such high ethical standards, wouldn't you know you're not going to bring it up?  It's either right or wrong, isn't it?  You know, it's not like, yeah, I have pretty high ethical and moral standards.  I doubt I'll ever be with hookers, you know.  You know, I don't think, I don't think I need hookers.  I'm pretty sure I know I don't need hookers.  I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be with hookers.  That's a blanket policy of mine.  I won't be with hookers.  What do you say?

Stu, do you doubt you'll be with hookers?

STU:  Glenn, hookers, being with a hooker is morally reprehensible.  That's why I'm fairly sure at no point that I may not be with a hooker.

GLENN:  I don't even know what you just said.  You should work for the DNC.

STU:  I'm just saying that there's a low expectation of hookerdom in my near future but that could change with circumstances that may prevail.

GLENN:  I don't --

STU:  That's all I'm saying.  It's just obvious, I'm not going to have sex with a hooker unless I have sex with a hooker.  You know what I mean?

GLENN:  I just love this.  Does anybody buy this?  Come on.  I want to hear from Democrats.  I want to hear from a Democrat.  You're out there and you hate everything that spills out of my mouth.  You're at least laughing at this, aren't you?  Come on.  You're at least looking at this and going, oh, my gosh, what a slimy move that is.  It was brought up -- I want you to know it was brought up unaided.  We didn't even, we didn't even say, we didn't even show pictures that say, hey, do you think he looks unhealthy?  We never even did that.  We didn't.  They just brought it up.  They say he's old and he's old-fashioned.  A lot of his ideas, old-fashioned.  Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh, yeah.

Are you bringing it up now, Mr. Dean?  Did anybody in the press corps ask that?  Mr. Dean, aren't you bringing it up now?  So while you're talking about the higher ethical standards that you won't use it, you won't bring it up, aren't you violating those standards on the first day you're talking about those standards?  I mean, is it just me?  I swear to you I'm going insane.

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.
