Obama continues apology tour at the U.N., blames YouTube for Libyan violence

President Obama spoke at the United Nations today and gave one of his classic apology tour speeches. He spent a lot of time condemning the poorly made YouTube video that even the administration admits was not the cause of the Libyan terrorist attack.

TheBlaze pulled some of the highlights of the speech below:

During the speech, Obama claimed "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."

This brought a lot of connections together for Glenn, who saw the protests in the Middle East as an effort by radical Islamists to outlaw the criticism of their Prophet and their religion.

"Let's just talk about this just for a second. Slandering the prophet of Islam, what does that even mean?" Glenn asked the audience.

Glenn said that Obama's statements could be inferred to be a condemnation of freedom of speech when it comes to criticizing religion. He referenced a UN resolution which is currently being discussed which would criminalize blasphemy. The resolution has a lot of support from Muslim areas of the world, and the proposal has a lot of support in the wake of the chaos in the Middle East the past few weeks.

Glenn pointed out that the resolution would have to go through Congress to become law here, and many believe it would never pass.

"But if there's a real crisis going on, which is just at the beginning, you'll get people to sweep in to anything to just make it stop," Glenn said.

Glenn pointed out that much of what is being done now in the United States can be linked to a Muslim Brotherhood plan to infiltrate the United States through a variety of methods, including indoctrination.

"Think of what they're teaching our children. That Jesus is a myth. That God is a myth. That none of this stuff actually was ‑‑ and you've got to stop talking. These crazy people who say the world was created and it doesn't just spontaneously combust, those are crazy people. However, however, you need to be tolerant of the people who are different than you like those in Muslim countries. 'You don't understand their rich and varied culture.' Excuse me. They're mutilating women. They're beating women. They ‑‑ are you crazy? That's more detrimental to humankind than saying that there was a creator? Are you out of your mind?"

"So no Jesus, no Jews. That's crazy stuff. But tolerate Muslims in education. In art and culture it's the same thing, in television. Remember how they were talking about they need a 'Little House of Islam'? How all of these organizations are trying to put new shows on that just show Muslims in really happy places? You know why? Because they've learned. The left and radical Islam are the same in many ways. They've learned. What was the biggest thing for gay marriage? What's the biggest thing that happened? The best thing? The best thing that happened for gay marriage was Will and Grace. You mainstream it. You change people's perceptions. And they are doing it on all fronts."

"Meanwhile go try to find a good Christian on a good contemporary, cool show on television. You can't. Go find a cool conservative. You can't. South Park can rip Christianity apart. You can rip Mormons apart on Broadway, not a problem, but you can't say a word in intellectual discussion about Islam."

"Can you imagine if we did a show on the Prophet Muhammad on Broadway? They would burn all of Broadway down."

Glenn then shifted gears to what would cause a violent jihad - a crisis.

"Here's the last part: Crisis. It is planned. It is in The Project. There will come a time for global jihad. They've just been positioning their troops. They just need to soften us enough, get in, make us ready to snap and then have the crisis. The crisis is here. The crisis is called the Arab Spring. But beyond that there is an economic, a global economic crisis that is coming. They know it. They helped plan it. And the easiest, the easiest way to win it is to use that crisis that they created but blame it on hate. Blame it on a movie that came out in the summertime but was released strategically to fall in line with what they needed. I mean, that's what's happening, gang," Glenn concluded.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
