Why are leftists complaining about Obama?

Not one to defend anything that comes out of the Obama White House, Glenn started the radio program this morning coming to the President’s defense – kind of.

With all of the progressive policies the President has put forth these last three years, it is hard to believe that many leftists and progressives continue to express dismay with the President’s job performance. After all, Obama has done things no progressive president ever has – passed government healthcare and so much more.

So what’s the problem?

“I honestly don't understand what the left wants from this President. Let me play devil's advocate, and I may mean that literally, and argue for the President here for a second,” Glenn said.

“If you are a Marxist, if you are a revolutionary, if you're a communist, really, if you're an anarchist, if you're an extreme leftist, if you're somebody who doesn't like the system as it is on the left, what more could this President do for you,” he asked.

Once you begin to run through the list of everything Barak Obama has ‘accomplished’ in his first term, it’s difficult to find anything that would be construed as a ‘failure’ by the left.

Just a quick look at President Obama’s first three years reveals he has:

- Passed universal health care

- Ended the war on terror

- Pacified the labor unions

- Lead the largest financial reform in U.S. history

- Created the Credit Protection Agency

- Changed foreign constitutions in support abortion

- Given NATO a leading role over the United States

- Appointed literal socialists, literal communists, literal revolutionaries to high office

- Supported anarchists, communists, and revolutionaries by supporting Occupy Wall Street

- Made it near criminal to have a differing point of view

- Put in place more regulations than could ever be undone

- Allowed the Department of Justice to stop a bid to halt illegal voting

- Controlled what food we can and cannot eat through his wife’s anti-obesity initiatives

- Given the Environmental Protection Agency the ability to regulate carbon emissions

- Doubled the amount of people on food stamps in three and half years

- Enacted a stimulus policy, which blindly threw billions of dollars at green energy companies among other things

Oh and one more minor achievement: this President has overseen the fundamental transformation of the United States America.

“I'd like to hear from you on what did we miss because we sat around this morning and we went through this list. And I'll bet you we missed over half of what this President has done,” Glenn said. “It's overwhelming what this President has done. He has overseen the fundamental transformation of the United States of America. He's literally rewriting history in real time.”

This list just scratches the surface, and yet the left is still not satisfied with the President’s job. Ironically, it would seem their unhappiness stems from the same place conservatives’ does – President Obama has not been truthful.

“I know you know the guy's a Marxist, period. He's not a communist. He's a Marxist. He wants to fundamentally transform the United States of America. He is more Hugo Chavez than George Washington,” Glenn said.

“We all know that. And we know he knows that, and we know he's telling us lies, but I contend so does the left,” he continued. “The left looks at him and they're seeing him – they’re seeing him cozying up with Wall Street and they're saying, ‘Wait a minute. Why are you cozying up with Wall Street? What happened to you?’”

“They know he's lying, and they're angry he won't come out and admit it because there's nothing to be ashamed of. We're all socialists now. We're all Marxist now. Why can't you be the President of the France? He won on the Marxist platform. He came out and admitted it. Why don't you admit you've been hanging out with the Democratic Socialists of America? We've got all the evidence. We've seen you at their conferences. Why won't you admit it? They don't like it.”

Had the President been open with his ideology and accomplished all of these things with his intentions clearly stated, the left would be proud to call him their leader, but that has not been the case with this administration.

“They think he's a liar, just like we think he's a liar,” Glenn concluded. “He's in trouble. He's in trouble because our side, we don't like him. We think he's a liar. We vote him out of office. Communists, revolutionaries, and anarchists, they think you're a liar, you betray the revolution, it usually doesn't end well. The President is in trouble.”

“They don't trust him. The same problem that the left has with the President of the United States is the problem we have. It's the same problem. Nobody trusts him because you don't really know who he is.”

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
