He said what?! Obama’s most outrageous statements

With the election just around the corner and the mainstream media continuing to ignore the stories of actual importance, Glenn decided to take a trip down memory lane and play some of President Obama’s most telling remarks that you probably haven’t heard in a while.

“I want to go through some of the most outrageous things this President has done,” Glenn said. “We just started to compile the things that you need to hear. We're going to go through the audio clips of the most outrageous things that the President of United States has said or believes in.”

The list of truly ludicrous statements Glenn, Pat, and Stu dug up were nothing short of amazing, and hearing the President, in his own words, divulge his beliefs is pretty enlightening (especially when you listen to them one after another, after another, after another…)

Below are a few of the highlights that are sure to make your head spin.

When it comes to wealth, Obama has made it pretty clear that he doesn’t like rich people.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think when you spread the wealth around I think it's good for us.

Really, it is?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I do think at is certain point you've made enough money.

How much money is ‘enough money,’ Mr. President?

Obama loves to flip-flop on anything and everything regarding Israel – proclaiming his support one day and backtracking the next.

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  We must preserve Israel's identity as a Jewish state with secure, recognized defensible borders. And Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: The truth is that this was an example where we had some poor phrasing in the speech and we immediately tried to correct the interpretation that was given. The point we were simply given we don't want barbed wire running through Jerusalem.

That seems like a really great way to assure our ally we’ve got their back.

Take a look at this comment, in which Obama describes his views on collective salvation.

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  Recognizing that my fate tied up with their fates that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country.  Unfortunately I think that recognition requires that we make sacrifices and this country has not been willing to make the sacrifices necessary to bring about the new day and the new age.

“Do you believe in collective salvation – that your spiritual fate is tied up in the collective salvation of the country and the world,” Glenn asked in response to the statement. “I don't. I believe in the saving power of Jesus Christ. Do you believe in collective salvation because he does.”

Perhaps most telling are the President’s various remarks on the Constitution. A Constitutional scholar himself, here he is on the Constitution and founding documents.

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  That generally the constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can't do to you. It says what the federal government can't do to you but it doesn't say what the state government or the federal government must do on your behalf. And that hasn't shifted and one of the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power about which you bring redistributive change.

“How did he survive that,” Stu asked. “How did this guy get elected after he said that?”

It’s safe to say that the founders purposely made sure the Constitution didn’t mention what the state or federal government “must do on your behalf,” and anyone who has studied the Constitution should probably know that. But then again, this is the same man who said, “I think [the Constitution] is an imperfect document, and I think this is a document that reflects some deep flaws in American culture.”

Too bad the majority of Americans have no idea Obama has said these things, since the media fails to report it. And if he wins reelection in November, you can probably bet we will hear a lot more of the same from the President.

Critical Race Theory: A special brand of evil

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
