Glenn Beck: Who should die?


RELATED STORY


Who should MDs let die in a pandemic? Report offers answers

GLENN: So, this guy was talking to me last night and this is what he ask for a living.  He looks at the price of oil and how it affects the economy.  He said ‑‑ you know, everybody's complaining now that we have 40 million in insured?  He predicts that by spring of next year ‑‑ try this on for size ‑‑ there will be 140 uninsured in American, 140 million people uninsured in America.  Why?  Because he says the fundamentals of business in America have to change.  Fed Ex can't do ‑‑ at $200 a barrel.  Fed Ex can't do what they do.  UPS can't do what they do.  The united postal service, how are they going to afford it?  How do jets run?  He says fresh tuna, going into a seafood restaurant and having fresh food, do you know that the average meal that you sit down and eat, do you know the average meal has traveled 1,500 miles to get to your table?  That's incredible.  Here.  I'll go to my refrigerator.  I'm holding a bottle of water from the island of Fiji.  $200 ‑‑ we're shipping water on 747's?  No, no, seriously.  We can afford to ship water, when I get it out of my tap?  Come on.

So, now, what's going to happen are these companies are going to say, well, we've got to have the water from Fiji.  So, what can we cut?  He believes they're going to cut health insurance because the government is, like, yeah.  We'll provide health insurance.  So, we'll get health insurance from the government.  Nobody is notices that capitalism seems to be working all‑around the planet and it's falling apart here because we're ashamed of it.  For some reason we're ashamed.  Everybody bashes Wal‑Mart.  Have you seen what Wal‑Mart has done recently?  Oh, Wal‑Mart, they're so evil!  Yeah.  Yeah.  They're so evil.  You see that their expanding their low cost drug program?  They're now filling prescriptions for up to 350 gentlemen jerk drugs for $10 and that covers a 90‑day period.  Drugs for 90 days for $10.  Thank you, Wal‑Mart.

There are additional women's medicines available for 9 bucks that include drugs to treat cancer and hormone deficiency.  $9 for 90 days.

Why aren't they doing more drugs?  You're going to hear that.  Also, Wal‑Mart is lowering prices on over a thousand over‑the‑counter meds to $4 or left.  They say they have saved Americans over $1 billion since the program was introduced in 2006 and they're responding it every day.  Capitalism.  Capitalism.  It's a good thing.

Now, if you would like to take a glimpse at what the world is going to look like under government's power, here it is.  In a story that was not reported an awful lot because this has to do with ‑‑ in case there's a pandemic.  Do you know what?  I don't even believe that this was developed for a pandemic.  Sure.  Maybe we're worried about the bird flu still.  I think this was ‑‑ this is a blueprint for universal health care.  Newly issued report gives guidelines to doctors on who should live and who should die if a deadly pandemic were to sweep the country or the globe.  They actually now have a list of who not to give medicine to.  If you're too old, no meds for you.  Severe burn, no meds for you.  Suffer from dementia, no meds.  This is great.  It's a wonderful list.  It was compiled by a task force made up by people from prominent universities, professors, oh, from the people who brought us the final solution.  Medical groups and government agencies.

They say that in the event that there aren't enough medical supplies to go around, they have to prioritize who's going to get the medicines and who will get the treatment.  This is a pandemic.  This isn't if there is enough medicine to go around because somebody doesn't have enough money to afford them.  This isn't in case in government is carrying everyone on their shoulder and oil is at $200 a barrel and we're spending our self into oblivion.  This has nothing to do with it.  This is for a pandemic.  This isn't the blueprint for universal health care.  This is for the bird flu.

So, who's on the list?  People at high risk of death, you're out of luck.  Slim chance of long‑term survival?  Bye bye.  This is going to be great, isn't it?  You're over 85, bye bye.  So, who has a chance?  Who's going to get the medicine?  If you have 10 percent chance to live, they bail on you.  27 percent chance, I don't know.  I don't know.  Do they?  Where's the line here?  People older than 85 get no treatment.  Those with severe trauma which could include critical injuries from car crashes and shootings, no.  Severely burned parents older than 60, if you're 59 and a half, Ow!  I was on fire for an hour and I'm 59 and a half.  Do we give it to them?  I hope.  If you happen to be in a cab with, you know, your twin, your twin brother, you were born at 11:30.  They were born at 12:15.  You're 59.  They're 60.  Boy.  Say good‑bye to your brother, man.  Oh, that sucks.  Those with severe mental impairment, including Alzheimer's.  The government says no drugs for you.

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."
