We’ve got your back! Obama endorses the worst ad ever

Would you be surprised if Obama and the campaign made some bad moves? Probably not. But would you expect him to endorse and ad that may be full of some of the most pandering and backwards rhetoric yet? In a new ad targeting the African American community - the Obama campaign asks people to stand up and say "We've got your back" for the President. It’s not even saying he has their back, it’s demanding that they have his back. Glenn played the ad and gave his reaction on radio.

Below is the ad that began running nationally this week:

"First of all, the President of the United States, the job of the President is to say to the American people 'I have your back'," Glenn said after hearing this ad.

"What is the function of government? The function of government is this: To protect your life so no one can scoop you up in the middle of the night and just take you and haul you away. To make sure that nobody is raping your family or killing your family. Life and liberty," Glenn said.

"So the President, his job is to make sure that he says, 'Look you're going to be able to go out, and you're going to be able to go out and do what you do. You can go out there and live your dream. Nobody is going to guarantee it but I'm going to guarantee that you have an open path. We're going to guarantee that you have a fair shot'," he said. "'We're not going to guarantee success.' That's his job. That's not what he's doing."

"How is he saying in return now that he's got your back? He's going to make sure you're not paying taxes? He's going to make sure that you have a giveaway. That you have a free education. All he's saying to you 'I'm giving you free stuff. Now you've got to watch my back.' The reason why you have the free stuff is because you need somebody to stand and look out when you're stealing.'"

"My question for you today is life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Isn't it -- hasn't it always been that the President has our back? On those three things. Hasn't this President now violated those three trusts? And hasn't he fundamentally transformed us to the point where we have to have a little jingle where we're pledging our support to watch his back?"

Glenn also pointed out that this ad inherently pits Americans against one another. Who do Obama's supporters have his back AGAINST? The American people.

"Americans have never been enemies with each other except for the Civil War," Glenn said.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."
