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.

Watch the full argument below:

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
