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.

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:
