Evolution? Obama supports gay marriage, then he doesn't, then he does

Looking for the latest effort by the White House to take attention away from the economy and put it squarely on social issues that rile up the American people but in the end have little impact on their day-to-day lives? Well, you need look no further than President Obama finally "evolving" and deciding that he now supports gay marriage - at least on a personal level. But wait...wasn't that his position waaaaaaay back in 1996? Surely this President wouldn't flip flop to whatever position would score him the most political points, would he?

"Could this president be any more ridiculous?  It's sad.  I feel bad for the president of the United States," Glenn said at the start of the show.

Yesterday, The President told ABC's Robin Roberts, "I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or Marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married."

So what does this mean? Pretty much nothing as Obama makes no commitment to any actual action.

Stu explained, "The left uses that excuse all the time:  I'm personally against it but I'm not changing the law is what ‑‑ that's what they're doing.  He's saying 'I'm personally for it' but he's not committing to changing the law.  He's not putting a bill up to change it nationally.  He's trying to walk some weird line in between exciting his base and not really pissing off whatever support he has."

"I think what he's trying to do is get the credit for being a civil rights champion, without being a civil rights champion.  He doesn't have the courage of Martin Luther King," Glenn argued.

Glenn said that rather than take any action, Obama has maintained that this is a state issue, not a federal one. The stance is curious considering he has taken the opposite stance when it comes to healthcare.

"You're, according to Barack Obama, born that way.  So there's no way you can escape it.  You're born that way.  Okay.  That's a states' issue?  But something that you're not endowed by your creator like healthcare, that's a federal issue?" Glenn wondered.

Glenn noted that maybe, after the election, the pressure for him to take action will force him to do something. But until November 2nd, Glenn doesn't think he's actually going to do anything that might risk his chances of winning. Obama has made it clear that while he supports gay marriage, his position is simply a personal one.

Glenn then ran through Obama's history on gay marriage, stating that in 1996 that Obama said on a disclosure form that he supported gay marriage, but in 2004 claimed that he believed marriage was only between a man and a woman. Then he said that his position was "evolving", leading him to come out yesterday with his support for gay marriage...which was the same position he had in 1996.

Did you follow that?

More evidence is coming out that this was nothing more than a shameless campaign stunt to begin with. Reports from CNN suggest that he was planning to reveal this right before the DNC convention, but Biden's gaffe on Meet The Press caused him to speed up the process. Meanwhile, he immediately sent out a letter to donors announcing his "evolved" position and revealed a spiffy new poster (see below).

Glenn joked that the days of Jay Carney dodging the question on "gay marriage" must have been a result of waiting for these awesome posters to get printed.

But hey - why does it matter anyway? In this economy, gay, straight, polka dot, or whatever, it's harder than ever to get a job let alone the house to move in afterwards. Let's face it, The President will do anything to get us to talk about something else.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
