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."

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

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."
