Of Fox and friends

Of Fox and friends.

I have been writing notes for the last week working on an entirely new way of doing business that if The Lord gives me more time and a bit more insight I think we can really change the way the world gets our information and inspiration.

Everything is about to change. Everything. The world can be a frightening place, but I believe this is the most exciting time to be alive. If we keep our heads and focus on Love we will write chapters than few men have even dreamt.

When I left FOX News in 2011, I had a question in my mind that I couldn't stop thinking about. Can man rule himself? Can a guy with a dream, surrounded by a team of committed individuals, disrupt the system and pioneer a new kind of media company? I built TheBlaze because I believe the answer to be ‘YES’.

I am free to say what I want without interference. No one limits my speech. No one holds the power of the platform over my head. Believe me, this is the future.

Someone wrote to me this week and said, “Your voice is too important to be behind a paywall and the world needs to hear from you.”

I know that not all of you have been able to join me on this new phase of my career, and I completely understand. We have found new ways to connect, with many more coming in the future.

But today I’m lucky enough to give some of you who miss seeing me on TV the chance to see what we’ve been building over at TheBlaze.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, DISH has removed FOX News and given TheBlaze TV their spot in the channel lineup. That means if you have DISH, you can now watch TheBlaze on channel 212 and channel 205. 100% free.

I have no idea how long TheBlaze will be on in place of FOX News. But for those of you looking for a channel that shares your values and principles, I hope you will give TheBlaze a chance.

I’m on vacation until Monday 1/5 (this came up after my family headed to the mountains for the holidays), but we’re going to be airing some great programming over the next couple of days until I get back to Dallas. And I have some exciting shows planned after the holidays.

We’re not looking to replace FOX News. In fact, I think TheBlaze offers you something completely different. We will provide insight that no one else gives, but in the coming months you will also see the beginning of a effort to change the culture.

If you’re a DISH subscriber, I invite you to take a few minutes over the next couple of days and see what we have to offer. I think you'll like it.

In early January my team is working on a three day series that will explain something that I have not heard anywhere else. It will be mocked as they mocked in 1999 when I warned NYC of Osama bin Laden, or 2007 when I warned of a crash or when no one could see the start of the caliphate. When I warned of the rise of nazis it was crazy, yet last month 15000 nazis marched in the streets of Germany.

This may be the most frightening thing I have pieced together yet. I believe it to be real and relatively imminent. I don't have the exact date yet as we are rushing it into production but it should be in mid January. If we are still on dish in the fox position I believe it will be due to divine providence. It is my hope that the maximum number of Americans will hear this warning. If we are no longer on dish at that time, those who need to hear it will. I pray that it will be you and your family.

As my friend, thank you for standing by a guy the world deemed crazy. Thank you for sharing the vision.

Because I have been sick, I do feel as though I failed you and Him in some ways. I couldn't keep up the pace that was needed to guard the vision. But I have begun to really change the way we see our goals and WHY we do what we do.

I have never been more on edge than I am now. Not because of possible failure, but because of what it will mean when we succeed.

It isn't about my family or the families of those who work with me. It is literally about all of those families all around the globe, the fifty million unique visitors every month that look to us to help them and their families make sense of the world.

We have just begun. Together, with your help we will do the impossible.

We will change the world.

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."
