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."

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
