Glenn Beck: Obama wrecks Asians


[youtube http://www.youtube.com/v/3BopfFXmrSs&hl=en&rel=0 expand=1]

GLENN: Oh, I am so glad that we have change on the way, and here's the kind of change that we can expect. This is good stuff. Are you ready? Play Jimmy Kimmel, please. Here's the first cut, Jimmy Kimmel. This is the cut that everybody has talked about with him, you know, replacing the bowling alley in the White House. Here it is.

KIMMEL: Should you become President, will you replace the current President's bouncy Castle with a bass at the time ball court at the White House?

SENATOR OBAMA: I hear there's a bowling alley. So we're getting rid of the bowling alley in the White House.

GLENN: Stop just a second. Is it possible that this guy could actually win the election before he starts redecorating the White House? Is it possible that maybe he drops the arrogance just a little bit? I mean, I know he's going to win, but can you wait for those plans? "Yeah, I've got the architectural drawings right here. This is what we're going to..." the second thing that comes to mind on this one, if we really are changing the bowling alley to a basketball court or putting in a basketball court, isn't the time for -- well, let me just ask you this. Did the government pay for your basketball court? Because they are not paying for my basketball court to be put in at my house and I know the President is different but, you know, we've got tennis courts, we have everything else. Can't we just put a hoop there? Let's just get a drill and put a basketball backboard and a hoop there some place, you know, in the front. I mean, it will cost us like 100 bucks. I'm willing to send him a backboard and a hoop. Maybe it's just me. How much is that going to cost us?

All right. So this is the thing that everybody talked about, that, oh, basketball, blah, blah, blah. There's two other things in this interview and the reason why this is news is because it's not news. Listen to this.

KIMMEL: Your high school team in Hawaii was won the state championship, which is pretty impressive. Can you dunk a basketball?

SENATOR OBAMA: You know, there's pretty good basketball in Hawaii but the only thing is since obviously there are a lot of folks from Asian ancestry in Hawaii, generally the teams aren't as tall.

GLENN: So hold on just a second. What is he implying there? Hey, Joe. Is Joe still here? Joe, come here. You're Asian descent. How tall are you? How tall are you, Joe? It's on. How tall are you?

JOE: 5' 11".

GLENN: That's not real short, is it? You're from Asian descent. I didn't know that you were -- I didn't recognize you as short person. Are you offended by that, Joe?

JOE: Honestly, no. I mean, I heard it and didn't, didn't do anything.

GLENN: See, this is really the -- this is the thing. This is the reaction that all of these comments should have. All of the comments like this should have this kind of reaction: Silence from the press. It's out of comedy show, for the love of Pete. It's on a comedy show, and he says something that is true. Generally speaking people of Asian descent are shorter.

Now, I wonder if I'm going to get in trouble for saying that. This is the way the game is played now in America. I wonder if I could say that. Can you imagine if I were on Good Morning America and I said, you can't get any good basketball in Hawaii, nobody's dunking in Hawaii, please. People from Asian descent, they are all short. Can you imagine the uproar if I said that? Changity, changity, change. Here's the change, gang. He can say things that no one else can. Barack Obama over the weekend gave a speech that has been heralded as one of the greatest speeches of all time. Oh, parents from coast to coast are hearing it. Finally it's being said. Bill Cosby's been saying the same thing forever. Bill Cosby is a pariah. Why is it Bill Cosby is a pariah and Barack Obama is not? Why is that? Because Barack Obama has the media behind him. That's why. It is -- you want to talk about change, this is the change that's coming: Do as I say, not as I do. The standards are completely different for Barack Obama than any other American. There is no other.

You want to talk about a level playing field, there is no level playing field here. This guy is at the very top of the playing field. It's a steep climb, but he is on the very top of the political correct playing field. He can say whatever he wants to say and no one questions him.

Last night Al Gore endorsed Barack Obama. Do you have a little bit of the Al Gore? Here's Al Gore endorsing. Now, remember Al Gore, the man who wants to get rid of the combustion engine. And don't think he's not serious. The man who wants to get rid of the combustion engine. Finally Al Gore has a candidate -- because really remember he only cares about one thing: Global warming, because we're all going to die in that fiery flood. The polar bears will be long gone. Oh, we will wish for their fur as we try to cover ourselves from the frigid icy hot temperatures that could happen at any time. Here's Al Gore last night.

GORE: In looking back over the last eight years, I can tell you that we have already learned one important fact since the year 2000. Take it from me. Elections matter. After the last eight years, even our dogs and cats have learned that elections matter.

GLENN: I'm going to get into that speech here in just a second, but first I just wanted you to hear the audio. Al Gore finally has somebody -- remember Al Gore is just a friend of the planet. That's all he cares about, this nonsense has to stop. We have to stop dividing each other. We have to care about the planet. We must reduce our carbon footprint. Let me ask you this question: Why would Al Gore, a man who only cares about reducing a carbon footprint, why would Al Gore endorse a man that two days before said this on Jimmy Kimmel.

KIMMEL: When you have these games, who do you play with? Is your brother-in-law involved in the games?

SENATOR OBAMA: No, he's been traveling so much during recruiting, he hasn't played much. But I've got a bunch of guys who will a lot of times fly in and they will play with us, good friends of mine.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Hold it just a second. Your good friends will fly in to play basketball with you? Your -- excuse me, Mr. Candidate, Mr. Green candidate, Mr. Al Gore loves me, we're all going to die, we need cap and trade, gas prices should be this high or higher, as long as they rise slowly because people will stop consuming so much evil oil? Your friends fly in to play basketball? You're kidding me, right? I thought we were all going to die -- oh, why do you hate polar bears so much? Why do you hate polar bears and Asians as much as you do? I don't understand it. Yet, you don't hear anything.

Imagine in the same interview where I said on Good Morning America, you can't get any good basketball in Hawaii. Come on, there's too many people from Asian descent there, they're too short, they can't dunk the ball. Imagine the outrage. And then in the same interview within two minutes, I also said, yeah, I just, I'm so busy. I have all of my friends fly in to play pickup basketball games with me. Can you imagine what the left would say about me? Changity, changity, change. Oh, it's coming. We don't have to hope for it. It's coming. It's fantastic, isn't it?

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.

These days, it seems like everything is about politics, and comedy has been one of the biggest targets. Many comedians are walking on eggshells, but stand-up comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jim Breuer isn't one of them.

Breuer joined Glenn on the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about why he’d rather be funny than fearful and what inspired his hilarious comedy special, “Somebody Had to Say It," which has garnered almost 1.5 million views as of this writing.

Breuer made it clear that he does not consider himself to be political. "I'm not. I'm 100% not [political]," he told Glenn, before explaining how people started calling him political when he dared to ask questions about a certain shot that we're not allowed to mention, let alone question.

"When did medicine become political?" Breuer asked.

"What kind of price have you paid for being called political?" Glenn asked Breuer.

"To be dead honest with you, once COVID really kicked in, and ... once you realize we're not going to be here, that we're on borrowed time, and I do have God in my life ... you come to terms with reality on a deeper level. And when COVID kicked in, I said, 'You know what? All bets are off.' I already knew I wasn't in control. But now, not only am I not in control from the natural order of life, but now the puppet masters ... are in control," Breuer answered.

"It made me realize I don't have time to worry about what people think of me. I know where I'm at in life. I know where I'm at spiritually. I know where I'm at with my family," he added.

"That's tremendous power," Glenn said. "But it spooks the hell out of people."

"But it shouldn't!" Breuer exclaimed. "I'm excited that other people get this ... but they're stuck. We ain't got time for stuck. To me, this is the time of, 'You gotta rise.' For years and years and years, you allow fear to control your life. Fear of dying. Fear I might get sick ... everything's based out of fear. It's time for the fearless."

Breuer also revealed his secret for dealing with tough times, and he’s seen his share. But he also said he's seen miracles, including the incredible (and hilariously told) story of how he found faith, how God saved his marriage, and why one family friend was convinced his wife belonged to a cult.
