Obama lectures Americans on Islamic State...because Christians did something wrong a long time ago.

Yesterday, President Obama gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast where he lectured Americans on criticizing the Islamic State. He doesn't want Americans to wag their fingers at ISIS for executing, crucifying, and setting people on fire, because of what Christianity did over a thousand years ago during the Inquisition.

"Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ," President Obama said.

Glenn did not like these comments one bit, but couldn't blame him. After all, the President's upbringing and own experience at church are very different than the average American.

"Mr. President, I'm tired of being lectured on who we are. You don't know who we are. You listen to Jeramiah Wright for years and years and years and he certainly is not a preacher of love and peace and contentment. I'm tired of being lectured and told who we are. I know exactly who we are. You are the one out of touch with the mainstream of America. You have no idea who we really are. You have this weird, warped, distorted, almost 'Grimms Fairy Tales' of who Americans are. And it comes quite honestly from your mother, from the dreams of your father, from Frank Marshall Davis and all those that you were surrounded by growing up. It's not your fault. I don't know how you could have a different point of view, having the lifestyle and the friends that you have had. Your entire life."

"You grew up offshore, then you moved to Hawaii.  You were surrounded by radicals and communists your whole life.  I understand.  Then you -- go to Jeramiah Wright's church and you spend 10 years there being indoctrinated there and being reinforced on what an evil country we are.  I get it.  I know who you are.  Please, Mr. President, stop telling me who I am, because you have no idea.  You've never spent any time with people like us."

Glenn also took issue with the way the President excused the behavior by shifting blame to other religions.

"Mr. President, I don't know if you've noticed, we've had a reformation since then," Glenn said. "If you're trying to equate this and say, 'hey, other people did this', are you just saying we should just let it burn itself out and we shouldn't judge?  Or would you have been one of the people during the reformation standing up and saying, lead the charge against this terror?  Would you have been a Martin Luther?  Would you have had the balls to put up on the church doors a manifesto saying you must change?  Or would you have said, 'hey, hey, hey, hey, that has nothing to do with Christianity.  Hey, hey, hey, hey, don't -- don't -- now, let's listen to them.  Where did they come from?  Where did the Grand Inquisitor come from?  What is his childhood like?  What is he actually saying?  How have we offended the Grand iInquisitor?  Have we done something to make them want us, to torture us, to put us on a rack, to tear our fingernails out?  What have we done?  We should self-examine.'"

"Your argument makes no sense," he concluded.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

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."
