‘That is an affront to the people who died there’: President Obama omits 'under God' from taped Gettysburg Address

President Obama already made headlines today for skipping the 150th anniversary ceremony of the Gettysburg Address citing a scheduling conflict, and now it looks like there is controversy surrounding his taped reading of the address.

President Obama and several other famous faces from the worlds of politics, entertainment, and business recorded versions of President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address for a project filmmaker Ken Burns produced for PBS. But in the video that President Obama recorded, two important words appear to have been omitted from the text: Under God.

“It is amazing. The President has just released footage from Ken Burns of the President giving the Gettysburg Address… I am sorry. You can say that it was a prompter [or] he misspoke, but he does it over and over again,” Glenn said disgusted on radio this morning. “That is an affront to Abraham Lincoln, an affront to the Civil War, an affront to the people who died there, an affront to our own history, and an affront to God. I'm sorry, there are no two ways about it.”

Watch the video in question below:

It should be noted that there are up 10 written versions of the Gettyburg Address and each has slightly different text. Some of those versions do not include the words “under God,” however, as TheBlaze reported, the commonly accepted Associated Press version does include the words.

Ken Burns as since come out and attempted to deflect the attention away from the President, saying President Obama was specifically asked to recite one of the versions of the Gettysburg Address that does not include the phrase “under God.” Burns made that clarification on his website learntheaddress.org. As TheBlaze discovered, that caveat has been added recently, for a cached version of the page reveals no such explanation.

Even before Burns’ explanation for the inconsistency was known, Stu explained that the excuse would most likely be that President Obama used one of the other versions of the text. But Glenn was not buying it.

“The spin is going to be, of course: Well, we used one of the earlier versions that did not include ‘under God,’” Stu explained. “There were other draft versions and some did not include it. But this is the one who was accepted.”

“I'm sorry – the earlier version,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “Stop buying into the lies. Something is wrong here. Stop buying into the lies. He is changing our history, changing our tradition. Stop believing the lies.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
