“I want to make this very clear to you that I have felt that the President was a danger to our country for a while because he was taking us off of our principles and he was subverting the constitution of the United States and everything else,” Glenn told listeners this morning.
President Obama addressed the U.N. yesterday in a speech that Glenn described as “disturbing on many levels.”
“He is not telling the world what he has told you,” he added.
Watch a clip of the President’s speech here:
“Here in the United States, countless publications provoke offense. Like me, the majority of Americans are Christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. As president of our country, and commander in chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and I will always defend their right to do so.
Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views — even views that we profoundly disagree with. We do so not because we support hateful speech, but because our founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views and practice their own faith may be threatened.
We do so because in a diverse society, efforts to restrict speech can quickly become a tool to silence critics and oppress minorities. We do so because, given the power of faith in our lives, and the passion that religious differences can inflame, the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression, it is more speech — the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphemy, and lift up the values of understanding and mutual respect.”
So, apparently after his administration has come out and admitted that they were wrong to blame the anti-Muslim YouTube for the Arab upturn, the president decided to jump back to that narrative. Why? (Tune into The Project tonight at 8pm ET on TheBlaze TV for the answer to that question.)
President Obama also said his this speech that we need to reject any slander against Muhammad, which Glenn points out goes against our First Amendment rights.
The president goes on to say that,
“Those who condemn of the prophet of Islam but also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches that are destroy, or the Holocaust that is denied.”
Glenn quickly pointed out that, yes, someone should probably speak out about the attacks taking place against Christians – but he isn’t.
“They’re burning them right now. The Coptic Christians are being killed. There are now reports out of the Middle East that some of them are being crucified, and we know that their churches have been bombed and burned to the ground. Christians are fleeing Egypt. I haven’t heard you talk about it,” Glenn said addressing the president. “We begged you to talk about it. You won’t. Christians are the ones under attack in the world.”
A false equivalency has been drawn between the slaughter of innocent Americans to the fault of this YouTube video that supposedly started the violence – it didn’t. Regardless of his knowledge of that, President Obama blamed the video on the international stage.
“Yesterday, Obama blames it on the video, and said it led to the burning of embassies and property, to to rioting outside of dozens of embassies around the world. And the killing of American citizens,” Glenn said.
“Every time Islamic extremism is spot lighted in this country suddenly Christianity comes under attack. Every time.”
Glenn pointed to an absurd statement that Rosie O’Donnell said recently:
“Radical Christianity is just as threatening radical as Islam in a country like America.”
Really? Glenn pointed out that on one hand there are videos of innocent humans being beheaded, blown up, stoned to death, sodomized, and murdered, all at the hands of Islamic extremists. These videos are so graphic that his security detail, former U.S. Military that have been in wars, can’t even watch it.
“On the other hand, what is it exactly that Christians have done?” Glenn asked. “I know it was Christians that led the way to freedom and liberty. It was Christians that freed the world. It was Christians, under the tutelage of George Whitfield, that actually set the world free in the first Great War of Independence. The first time in world history that man had it — it was because of Christians. What stopped the Salem witch trials? Christians. What stopped slavery in the United States and all over the world, except for places like Africa still today? Christians. What stopped the Nazis? Christians.”
“What will stop the current nightmare in the world?” Glenn asked.
Glenn reminded listeners again that we are 40 days away from the most important election America has seen in a hundred years. People of faith all across nation are starting Glenn’s “40 Day 40 Night Challenge.”
“I bed you, begin it today,” Glenn said. “It was Christians that stood up by the side of the Lincoln. It was Christians – Martin Luther King, he was a preacher.”
Glenn, aware of the critics just waiting to pounce, noted the violence that has occurred at the hand of “Christians.”
“Let’s look into the facts,” he started, “but first of all, let me be clear, if it happens once, that’s one time too many. Real Christians deplore violence in the name of God.”
A stark difference between what you see in violent, extremist Islam.
The first confirmed fatal bombing of an abortion clinic in the United States occurred in 1998. Since then eight people have been killed in abortion attacks in the United States – the lefts go-to reason that Christians are just as bad as any other extremist.
In addition, there have been fourteen cases of property damage due to bombing or arsons – .5 per year. And, despite popular belief, Timothy McVey, the Oklahoma City bomber who killed 167 people, was not a Christian.
“He was at best agnostic,” Glenn said. “He never claimed to do anything in the name of Christianity.”
Glenn also noted that Adolf Hilter replaced the crucifixes, the pictures of Jesus, everything that had to do with Christianity, yet somehow or another the western world has been led to believe he was Christian.
“I don’t know how that works exactly,” Glenn said.
“In 40 days we have the best thing I like to call the best term limit there is: an election,” he added. “After all that you can do, God will make up for the rest for he is not neutral. But hear me carefully, not to vote is to vote. Vote.”
