Jeremiah Wright Unleashed

This morning on radio, Glenn went through exclusive new audio from The Blaze of Rev. Jeremiah Wright speaking at Metropolitan Baptist Church in Charleston, West Virginia, as part of a week-long revival event. His controversial words took aim at Thomas Jefferson, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the media and plenty of other targets.

Here’s some of what he had to say:

“I am not divisive, the media is divisive. CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and Fox News spent $4,000 each buying 20 years of my sermons, so they could hear what Barack Obama heard for 20 years. Then they took an eight year old sermon and a five year old sermon and took two clauses out of context to try to scare white voters away from Barack Obama.”

Aside from the obvious fact that there have been far more than two statements from Rev. Jeremiah Wright played on Glenn’s program, he was also not taken out of context.

“We played it in context, an hour-long sermon. We played it on this broadcast. We didn't take him out of context,” Glenn recalled.

But that wasn’t all Wright had to say in his most recent sermon:

“I ain't dividing, they are dividing. There are people in power right now who have opinions about you based on their privilege of skin color. I'm in the text. Jesus was not European. They live in a world shaped by European standards of beauty, shaped by Moynahan's study, shaped by bell curves. They live in a different world from your world all together. They are ignorant, and arrogant and these are graduates of Harvard and Yale setting policies for you based on the stupidly David Hume, Emanuel Kahn, Voltaire, Georg Wilhelm, Friedrich Hegel, Thomas Jefferson—a pedophile—Theodore Roosevelt, and a racist Supreme Court.”

“But he’s not divisive,” Pat said sarcastically.

But, Jeremiah Wright wasn’t done yet:

“The god of the slaveholder and the god of the slave are two different gods. The god of the people riding on the decks of the slave ship and the god of the people ride beneath the decks oh Lord have mercy, those are two different gods. The god of white supremacy is a different god from the god who came to set the captives free. The god who sanctions the apartheid, the god who approves of Shock And Awe, the god who winks at collateral damage, the god who rubber stamps the racist exploitation of a people and world resources, that ain’t the god who took on the form of a servant and became obedient unto death. Beware of whom you're talking to, believers. You may be serving two different gods. The god who said that black folk are inferior is not the God who said ‘I made you in my image, and you are mine'."

“What god said that black folk is inferior?” Pat asked. “What god is he talking about? I’m not familiar with that god.”

Wright continued:

“The god of sexism is not the god of sojourner truth or the god of Rosa Parks. The god who loves America and America only is not the God that Jesus told Nebuchadnezzar about who loved the whole world… ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son.’ The god of racism is not the righteousness. The god of the greedy is not the god of grace. The god of Wall Street is not the god of Main Street. These are two different gods—and I ain’t talking about Allah and Yahweh. Those are the same name for the same God.”

Glenn pointed out that this last statement from Rev. Wright was a pretty profound statement to hear from a Christian Pastor.

“Whether you believe in Islam or Christianity, those are two pretty different things,” Pat explained.

Glenn went on to explain that Yahweb, the God of the Bible, is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Allah is the God of Abraham, Ishmael and Jacob. Ishmael and Isaac are the difference.

“That’s not the same God,” Glenn said. “You will not hear a Muslim say the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”

Pat referred to Wright’s preaching as a “hybrid theology.” Rev. Wright is a big proponent of collective salvation, which is not what the teachings of the New Testament say the path to salvation is for Christians. He also preaches Black Liberation Theology, and a kindness towards extreme Islam. Rev. Wright is friends with both Louis Farrakhan and the former leader of Libya, Moammar Gadhafi.

In the last clip of the sermon Glenn played, Rev Wright said this:

“There’s a whole lot of folk that look like you who are worshipping some other God. Somebody shout Clarence Thomas – halleluiah.”

So, according to this sermon from Rev. Wright, if you have a different political ideology, you are worshipping a different God.

So, why does this matter, and why should you care? Glenn explained that Jeremiah Wright is the man that President Obama said brought him to his understanding of Jesus Christ. At the same time, he was also denying listening to the extreme things that Rev. Wright said.

Glenn explained that there is pressure coming from all sides from within our country. Far left religious leaders, like Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan, Van Jones and the Occupy Movement, the Black Panthers, and other groups are doing everything they can to fundamentally transform the United States.

Glenn has a different type of transformation in mind though—what he believes is the only way to win the fight for man’s freedom and the country.

“This is why I ask you to lace up to your boots. We have a message of love and of peace,” Glenn said. “It is the message of Gandhi, and Martin Luther King. Van Jones is now actively trying to occupy that space. His words. He did it last week while I was on vacation. If they occupy that space, they win. They win.”

Critical Race Theory: A special brand of evil

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."
