Glenn: President Obama's U.N. speech "disturbing on many levels"

"I want to make this very clear to you that I have felt that the President was a danger to our country for a while because he was taking us off of our principles and he was subverting the constitution of the United States and everything else," Glenn told listeners this morning.

President Obama addressed the U.N. yesterday in a speech that Glenn described as "disturbing on many levels."

"He is not telling the world what he has told you," he added.

Watch a clip of the President's speech here:

 

“Here in the United States, countless publications provoke offense. Like me, the majority of Americans are Christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. As president of our country, and commander in chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and I will always defend their right to do so.

Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views — even views that we profoundly disagree with. We do so not because we support hateful speech, but because our founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views and practice their own faith may be threatened.

We do so because in a diverse society, efforts to restrict speech can quickly become a tool to silence critics and oppress minorities. We do so because, given the power of faith in our lives, and the passion that religious differences can inflame, the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression, it is more speech — the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphemy, and lift up the values of understanding and mutual respect.”

So, apparently after his administration has come out and admitted that they were wrong to blame the anti-Muslim YouTube for the Arab upturn, the president decided to jump back to that narrative. Why? (Tune into The Project tonight at 8pm ET on TheBlaze TV for the answer to that question.)

President Obama also said his this speech that we need to reject any slander against Muhammad, which Glenn points out goes against our First Amendment rights.

The president goes on to say that,

"Those who condemn of the prophet of Islam but also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches that are destroy, or the Holocaust that is denied."

Glenn quickly pointed out that, yes, someone should probably speak out about the attacks taking place against Christians - but he isn't.

"They're burning them right now. The Coptic Christians are being killed. There are now reports out of the Middle East that some of them are being crucified, and we know that their churches have been bombed and burned to the ground. Christians are fleeing Egypt. I haven't heard you talk about it," Glenn said addressing the president. "We begged you to talk about it. You won't. Christians are the ones under attack in the world."

A false equivalency has been drawn between the slaughter of innocent Americans to the fault of this YouTube video that supposedly started the violence - it didn't. Regardless of his knowledge of that, President Obama blamed the video on the international stage.

"Yesterday, Obama blames it on the video, and said it led to the burning of embassies and property, to to rioting outside of dozens of embassies around the world. And the killing of American citizens," Glenn said.

"Every time Islamic extremism is spot lighted in this country suddenly Christianity comes under attack. Every time."

Glenn pointed to an absurd statement that Rosie O'Donnell said recently:

"Radical Christianity is just as threatening radical as Islam in a country like America."

Really? Glenn pointed out that on one hand there are videos of innocent humans being beheaded, blown up, stoned to death, sodomized, and murdered, all at the hands of Islamic extremists. These videos are so graphic that his security detail, former U.S. Military that have been in wars, can't even watch it.

"On the other hand, what is it exactly that Christians have done?" Glenn asked. "I know it was Christians that led the way to freedom and liberty. It was Christians that freed the world. It was Christians, under the tutelage of George Whitfield, that actually set the world free in the first Great War of Independence. The first time in world history that man had it — it was because of Christians. What stopped the Salem witch trials? Christians. What stopped slavery in the United States and all over the world, except for places like Africa still today? Christians. What stopped the Nazis? Christians."

"What will stop the current nightmare in the world?" Glenn asked.

Glenn reminded listeners again that we are 40 days away from the most important election America has seen in a hundred years. People of faith all across nation are starting Glenn's "40 Day 40 Night Challenge."

"I bed you, begin it today," Glenn said. "It was Christians that stood up by the side of the Lincoln. It was Christians - Martin Luther King, he was a preacher."

Glenn, aware of the critics just waiting to pounce, noted the violence that has occurred at the hand of "Christians."

"Let's look into the facts," he started, "but first of all, let me be clear, if it happens once, that's one time too many. Real Christians deplore violence in the name of God."

A stark difference between what you see in violent, extremist Islam.

The first confirmed fatal bombing of an abortion clinic in the United States occurred in 1998. Since then eight people have been killed in abortion attacks in the United States - the lefts go-to reason that Christians are just as bad as any other extremist.

In addition, there have been fourteen cases of property damage due to bombing or arsons - .5 per year. And, despite popular belief, Timothy McVey, the Oklahoma City bomber who killed 167 people, was not a Christian.

"He was at best agnostic," Glenn said. "He never claimed to do anything in the name of Christianity."

Glenn also noted that Adolf Hilter replaced the crucifixes, the pictures of Jesus, everything that had to do with Christianity, yet somehow or another the western world has been led to believe he was Christian.

"I don't know how that works exactly," Glenn said.

"In 40 days we have the best thing I like to call the best term limit there is: an election," he added. "After all that you can do, God will make up for the rest for he is not neutral. But hear me carefully, not to vote is to vote. Vote."

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

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.
