Glenn Beck: The Global Warming hysteria list

- Glenn Beck: The green hype list

GLENN:  But Stu, did you do the research that I asked you to do on the global warming thing that we talked about yesterday?

STU:  Yes, I did.  You had the big list yesterday.

GLENN:  Okay.  Yesterday the big list was all of the things, starting in the A's, and I think the first one was acne, that acne is caused now by global warming, which is weird because I remember having zits, you know, when we were headed for an ice age.  But now that's caused by global warming.  Everything you can imagine is caused by global warming.  The list we sent out in the newsletter yesterday, it's hysterical.  But there were a couple of them that I actually had to stop and ask and say, what is the story on this.  This list that we generated yesterday is a list of all the things that have been blamed on global warming and the stories connected to that.  No, we didn't just say, oh, yeah, acne.  We said acne, and here's the story that it came from.

But I had to ask a couple of questions, how circumcision rates rising is connected to global warming.  That's the first one, Stu.  Do you have that?

STU:  Yes.  Well, of course.  Obvious, this one's obvious.  I can't believe you even have to ask about this because in Africa certain tribes circumstance size their youths in grand ceremonies which are held every seven years or so when enough cattle and other foods have accumulated to support such celebrations.  But it's been 14 years since there have been a circumcision in this one area and now there's 40,000 uncircumcised young men, some in their late 20s who are obviously having problems picking up the ladies with that situation.

GLENN:  Damn this global warming.

STU:  See, it's killing African circumcision rates.

GLENN:  Next one, crocodile gender shifts.  So crocodiles are starting to become females or female crocodiles are becoming males?

STU:  Well, as you, of course, obviously know, the gender of a crocodile is determined by the embryo temperature during incubation which, you obviously knew that.  So --

GLENN:  Oh, and you know what?  Crocodiles are cold-blooded.  So if it's warmer outside, the crocodile is warmer.

STU:  Right.  So it results in different sex ratios when the water warms up a little.

GLENN:  May I just point out that it might be a good thing that crocodiles become extinct?

STU:  A lot of people with bite marks on their legs would agree, Glenn.

GLENN:  Yes.  Teen drinking is on the rise because of global warming.

STU:  Yes.  Well, as you know, there's now a study that --

GLENN:  Please stop saying "As I know."  I obviously know, but inform the little person that might be listening right now, driving their car because, you know, the state allows them to still drive a car.  You shouldn't be driving a car, little person.  Explain to them about teen drinking.

STU:  I just don't want to talk down to people because it's so blatantly obvious about teen drinking.

GLENN:  All the research points to it.  All scientists agree.  I mean, it's only -- talk right directly to the people that believe we never blame it on the moon.

STU:  All those crazy people.  24% of eighth graders say they've consumed alcohol in the past month and that's a rising problem.  The reason for that, well, there's a variety of reasons why they've started.  But researcher says that it all comes back to the whole culture is going crazy.  The U.S. is at war and global warming is in the news.

GLENN:  Oh.

STU:  Some would say maybe the media alarmism is running that sort of shift, but as we all know here's global warming.

GLENN:  How about this.  I wonder if we can get anybody to write that the price of, you know, grain and hops is going up, so there's going to be a beer shortage because of global warming.  So that will stop teenage drinking.

STU:  People will just hoard the beer, Glenn.  We don't want that to happen.

GLENN:  There's no way to win on that global warming thing.  Early marriages.

STU:  Now, as you know obviously, Glenn, but to inform some of the lesser people out there, climate change --

GLENN:  For those who aren't as smart as us.

STU:  Obviously.

GLENN:  I've been to Columbia.

STU:  It's clear logic what happens here.  But climate change, of course, is causing all of these terrible global food shortages.  It has nothing to do with the stuff we've talked about at length here for the last month.  But that is -- that's all global warming's fault in reality.  And in times of food crisis, some parents will distressfully marry off their daughters to secure dowry in places like Uganda.

GLENN:  Don't you hate that.  Well, little person, that's what you're causing because you're driving your car still.  We're not driving.  Are you driving a car right now, Stu?

STU:  I'm not driving a car.

GLENN:  You are not driving a car?

STU:  Am I charging a -- causing a 13-year-old to get married right now?  I'm not doing it.

GLENN:  You are not, no.  You are pointing it out.  Of course, we may be in a giant skyscraper in Manhattan with just tons of electrical equipment and beaming this signal into space down to Los Angeles where we've got a whole other skyscraper in Los Angeles where it processes and encodes all of this information so we can then send it up in space again and then, you know, beam it around the country so people can, you know, turn on their electric devices to be able to listen to it.  But we have nothing to do with it, nor does anybody in the media.

And finally, the collapsing -- this is -- and please if you are driving, little person, please pull over because this is very disturbing, at least to people like you.  The collapse of gingerbread houses.

STU:  Oh, this is terrible.

GLENN:  Caused by global warming, collapsing gingerbread houses.  This is an actual story, of course.

STU:  Yes.  And obviously as you know, Glenn, this is blatantly tied to global warming but as found in Sweden who as you know, you build your whole gingerbread house with the icing to really keep things together.  Unfortunately they are collapsing because of the unusually damp winter and the damp winter spells immediate devastation.  This is a quote.  I'm sorry.

GLENN:  Damn these schemers.

STU:  The damp weather spells immediate devastation for gingerbread houses.

GLENN:  Why -- can I tell you something?  Why are you laughing?  Do you not relate to the plight of gingerbread men?

STU:  No, I mean --

GLENN:  I mean, there are homeless gingerbread men, no place to go.  They are probably left out to eat their button.  You know what I mean?

STU:  I mean, that is a major problem.

GLENN:  By the way, as somebody who grew up in a bakery and has made gingerbread houses, that's a problem with the royal icing.  Never did my father ever say, oh, gee.  You know what?  But let's do ourselves a favor because there's a lot of these problems and I think we need to be able to teach our children how all of these things are caused by global warming.  So what we've done is we've put together a little song, but we had our composer, Anthony, write something that, you know, we could play on Sesame Street.  And maybe you can gather your kid around the radio now, little people, and you get the little people, their littler people together around the radio right now so they can learn this great song about the dangers of global warming and all the things that global warming causes.

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.

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."
