Is the black community turning on Obama?

Another video shows a crowd leaving smack in the middle of Obama’s speech, raising questions about his support among his base. Politicians are noticing the trend and actively seeking to distance themselves from the President in every way possible. Why are they turning on Obama? Glenn reacted on radio today.

TheBlaze reported:

The Democratic Party is “abusing” blacks in America, according to a group of men in Chicago who have a scathing message for President Barack Obama and “black leadership.”

“Who are the real oppressors in our community?” Paul McKinley, who ran for elected office as a Republican to replace Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., demanded in a video released Monday by Rebel Pundit. “When you hear the words ‘black-on-black crime,’ the first thing you think of is a black man robbing you, a black man breaking in your house. And that is a black-on-black crime. But let’s take it one step further. There’s a black-on-black crime down in city hall, there’s a black-on-black crime down in all the state capitals in America, where black folks are voting against our interests!”

"That is fantastic," Glenn said after watching it.

While this video seems like good news for those who want to see people, regardless of ethnicity, wake up and see the dangers of the progressive machine, Glenn did have a warning for listeners.

Glenn asked people to recall America after 9/11, when there was such an emotional reaction the the terrorist attack that people rallied behind President Bush and the leadership in Congress, and now the pendulum has swung the opposite direction with such vigor people don't know what to believe in anymore.

"The first time I really saw those flags was after September 11 th . They were everywhere. Regular people would just have them in their cars on the highway after September 11 th . Everybody wore a flag lapel pin on television. Everybody was pro-troops, pro-flag, pro, you know, Star Spangled Banner. You name it. We practically dressed like the Statue of Liberty for a while. Now look at us. Now you don't even know what to believe in. Now you don't know what things even stand for anymore. Now look at how the national anthem, does it mean anything? The flag, to how many people, does it mean anything?" Glenn said.

Glenn admitted he has become so disillusioned that he has trouble saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

"We were someplace and we stood to say the Pledge of Allegiance. And I stood up and I put my hand over the heart. We were at church at the Boy Scouts. I put my hand over my heart and I stood. And everybody starts saying the Pledge of Allegiance. [Tania] looked over at me. She elbowed me. What's wrong with you?"

"I'm not going to take in the Pledge of Allegiance. I'm not. I will pledge my allegiance to the principles and the values that created this republic. I don't know what this republic even is anymore. Now, I know this is a controversial thing. The point of this is, think of who's saying this. Think of who's saying this. The guy who did the rallies for America, what, 10 years ago. The biggest flag waver you could possibly find. Think how far the pendulum has swung," Glenn explained.

"Right now, we're at an extreme. Right now we're at almost a revolutionary extreme. Where common sense is completely dead. And I warn you, it will swing back."

"This is why the Republicans are not doing anything about the IRS, if you don't think the IRS will be used by the Republicans, and the Republicans will use the NSA just like this administration has, and they will say, well, you guys did it first, well, you guys did this. At some point all of this apparatus, all of these feelings of vengeance, they swing to the right. That's why we have to set ourselves in the middle. And I'm not talking about the wishy-washy middle. I'm saying the pendulum middle. I'm saying don't swing with the wind. Know what you believe in. Know what your principles and your values are, because those haven't changed."

"If I was taking a Pledge of Allegiance to the principles of the republic, if we all would have been saying that, and in our pledge we would have said what those principles are, honor, integrity, honesty, justice, equality for all, fairness, decency, truth, justice, the American way. Perhaps we wouldn't be in this situation that we're in right now, if we would just remember the principles. And those are the things we have to start pledging our lives to. And not to each other and not in a big group. To ourselves. To ourselves. Because I think this pendulum, I think they have overplayed their hand in every single way."

"The most dangerous time in American history are the next two years. Because this president, this administration, has nothing to lose. They're not playing for the next election," Glenn said. "Enjoy these next few days as we go up to the election, because once the election is done, he's got nothing to lose. And everything to gain."

An op-ed in the Los Angeles Times titled, "What can you do about the Trumpites next door?" is causing quite a stir. In the column, the author, columnist Virginia Heffernan, complains after her Trump-supporting neighbors plowed snow off her driveway without being asked — and "did a great job."

Heffernan asks "how much thanks?" do the neighbors deserve "in the face of this act of aggressive niceness." Just when you think she's joking, Heffernan goes on to compare her Trump-supporting neighbors to Hezbollah, the mafia, and, of course, Nazi sympathizers.

"This is also kind of weird. Back in the city, people don't sweep other people's walkways for nothing," Heffernan wrote. "Hezbollah, the Shiite Islamist political party in Lebanon, also gives things away for free ... And they also demand devotion to their brutal, us-versus-them anti-Sunni cause. Some of us are family, the favors say; the rest are infidels."

She continued, writing, "What do we do about the Trumpites around us? Like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who spoke eloquently this week about her terrifying experience during the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6, Americans are expected to forgive and forget before we've even stitched up our wounds. Or gotten our vaccines against the pandemic that former President Trump utterly failed to mitigate.

My neighbors supported a man who showed near-murderous contempt for the majority of Americans. They kept him in business with their support. But the plowing."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reacted to Heffernan's op-ed, and offered some really helpful advice he said he'd recently received: If you're getting this upset at your friends, family, neighbors — just STOP. Instead of only tolerating the other side, maybe try to understand them. You may find more common ground than you think.

In the past week, independent rapper Tom MacDonald's new song "Fake Woke" soared to No. 1 on iTunes and has now earned a spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Tom's lyrics call out cancel culture and the "fake woke" Americans who support it. Watch his music video here.

Tom joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to discuss why he's speaking out against woke culture, the responses he's gotten, and his fear for the industry moving forward if "opinions become illegal."

The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro argues that even liberals are becoming too scared to speak out in defense of anyone who dares to disagree with the "woke left" — even if their own freedoms are on the line — and he has experienced it firsthand.

Case in point, hundreds of Politico staffers were enraged and horrified last month after Ben was invited to guest-write the site's "Playbook" political newsletter. Apparently, giving a voice to even one conservative is way too extreme for our modern media.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Ben shed new light on the Politico Playbook blow-up and explained why he believes this will become the new normal in the Democratic Party.

Economist and bestselling author Harry Dent has called the past few economic crashes eerily accurately — and he's now predicting a major "super-bubble" crash will happen by June of this year. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to talk about what he believes is coming soon for our financial markets.

Harry said the federal reserve and central banks have taken over free market capitalism. "[Central banks] set interest rates. They drive bonds up and interest rates down. They drive stocks up continually... [and] run the economy like a machine," He explained. "And this is what has created this great bubble. And a great disconnect."

Harry said he expects that when the "already ordained" next crash happens, the "entire role of central banks will be questioned." But will this be enough to break the hold of big banks, big companies, and the likes of the Federal Reserve on the economy?
