Postmodern social justice warriors thrive on 'contradictions and hypocrisy'

On Monday's show, Glenn Beck broke down the politics and theories behind postmodernism, what it is and how it's influencing our everyday lives.

Glenn said that a combination of postmodernism and Marxism could be seen in the "modern pursuit of social justice."

"It's everywhere. It is in politics, in sports, in music, sexuality, television, language, science, art, cuisine, etiquette, architecture, literature," Glenn said. "It's not until you realize that every aspect of your life has been politicized, including the bathroom and chicken sandwiches, that you realize … postmodernism is everywhere."

Glenn gave several examples of "contradictory and hypocritical" postmodern social justice, including: millionaire athletes who protest racial discrimination despite data disproving their claims, privileged feminists who condemn "manspreading" while ignoring real injustices against women, and protesters who base their movement on "provably false claims," then enjoy "victim status" if their claims are questioned.

"Postmodernism allows for contradictions and hypocrisy. In fact, it thrives on them," Glenn added.

He explained that postmodern theory doesn't recognize an objective reality. Instead, the truth is "culturally relative," determined by language, and subject to interpretation.

He detailed nine prevailing concepts of postmodernism:

1. Absence of reality
2. Decentralization
3. Rejection of master narratives
4. Meaninglessness of language
5. Perpetual present
6. Paradoxical juxtapositions
7. Rejection of truth
8. Acceptance of disorder/chaos
9. Paranoia/suspicion

"Postmodernists believe that change is constant. It's so constant that only the 'now' exists. And there's no way to retell history because there is no human nature," Glenn said. "Philosophy has always strived to understand what life is. But postmodernism tells us what life is not. It is not full of meaning. It is meaningless."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
