Is being wealthy a problem? It might be for Obama...

Is it wrong to be wealthy? Is it bad to be a success? Most would say it's the American Dream - but to hear Barack Obama talk about success you would think it's the American Nightmare. Glenn played the latest, mind blowing audio from the President on radio this morning. Was he shocked? Or did he see this as the natural result of a communist, anti-American influence in the life of Barack Obama?

Obama said:

And, you know, there are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans that agree with me because they want to give something back. They know they didn't -- if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, Well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something. There are a whole bunch of hard-working people out there. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allows you to thrive. Someone invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.

"Barack Obama just can't help himself. It's too engrained in his psyche. It has been drilled into his head his whole life, first by his mother and then through his mother, his birth father, his grandparents, his communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, his college professors and, finally, no doubt, no doubt, by people like Bill Ayers, Rashid Khalidi," Glenn said. "They cemented that into his mind."

"He wants to say that being wealthy is a problem, but he has to say it's not. He has to say that those who have wealth earned it fair and square and there's nothing wrong with that and that's what America is all about. He wants to say -- no. Not true. He's forced to say what Americans believe because he has an election to win."

"Once in awhile he'll squeeze some of those words out of his mouth, but he doesn't believe it. It's so much a part of him, it's so much a part of his belief structure that every once in awhile, even though the election looms ahead, he still lets Americans in on his true idealogy. He can't stand the wealthy, unless the wealthy is selected by him, unless the wealthy thinks like him. This isn't something new. This is Theodore Roosevelt, 'I begrudge no man a fortune, as long as it's well earned and well spent.' That's the Theodore Roosevelt. This is a progressive thing. He lets people in once in awhile on his true idealogy. He can't stand the wealthy. They don't deserve it. They didn't earn it.

"Is there an unfairness fairy that sprinkles dust on those who succeed with wealthy dust? Is it, like, oh, wealthy dust? Oh, yes. I've got a little wealth fairy that comes by once a time and again and sprinkles a little dust on me." Glenn joked.

While Glenn didn't understand the bizzarre attempt to rationalize higher taxes in order to redistribute the wealthy, he did say that "I'm glad I know where it ends, in November."

"Are you listening this time, America? Are you going to make sure your friends on the fence who are maybe still clinging to hope and change hear it this time, America? His animosity toward success is painfully obvious," he added.

"Keep talking, Barack. You obviously clearly cannot help yourself and stop yourself from telling the truth."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
