Glenn Beck: Obama embarrassed by Americans



CALLER: Hey, I need your help with something. I'm kind of confused. Isn't Obama the guy who said not too long ago that America went to Europe and they didn't speak the language over there, maybe they could say merci beaucoup but that was it and then when they come over here, they speak English perfectly?

GLENN: Hold on a second. Did he actually say that?

CALLER: Yeah, pretty sure he said that.

GLENN: Did he say that? I've got to have that. When did he say that?

CALLER: I don't know exactly but I know he said it.

GLENN: Better than that, we've got to look that up. Because this guy is the biggest elitist ever. He really hates the Americans that go over and maybe they could say merci beaucoup. I don't even know what that means. Thanks for the flowers.

CALLER: Yeah, I missed, I missed when he was speaking German in Germany. I missed when he was speaking French in France, but I did hear him say in English that the Americans loved French people. I don't --

GLENN: That's fantastic. He did -- I will tell you this. When he did go over to England, he did speak the native tongue, though. So --

CALLER: Well, you know, I'm not really sure about when he went to, oh, the Muslim countries. But I have a feeling he speaks their language, though.

GLENN: See, now wait a minute. I don't even know what that means. Why would you even go there?

CALLER: Well, because I'm just the evil conservative.

GLENN: Well, you know what? You know what? You give conservatives a bad name when you -- no, listen to me, Cliff.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: When you insinuate that Obama is a Muslim and he's not a Muslim, you give conservatives a bad name. You give people a bad name because that is the kind of argument where you lose immediately. You say something like that and nobody worth their salt listens to you anymore about what you have to say about Barack Obama. Don't say those things. There's no reason to say those things. You know what? You say something like that and then I stop looking to see if Obama ever, the elitist, ever did say, "You know what, you go over to other countries, I'm sick of these Americans" because I no longer believe you. I don't think you have any credibility at all.

I mean, Stu, have you ever seen a -- Dan has. Okay, got to give the audio -- got to give the credibility back to our last caller because here's the audio of Barack Obama?

DAN: I just listened to the beginning and it sounds like it. So let's listen.

OBAMA: It's embarrassing -- it's embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English. They speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and all we can say is merci beaucoup.

GLENN: Why is that embarrassing? Why is that embarrassing? Could you imagine if New York spoke one language, New Jersey spoke another language, Delaware spoke a third language, Connecticut spoke another language and you're living -- that's what -- I mean, Europe is like New England and the eastern states. You're living on top of each other. And everybody speaks another language. Of course you speak more than one language. You have to to be able to survive. I'm sorry that they're so stupid that they continue to speak 800 different languages when they're living next door to each other. Here's an idea, we streamlined it. One. I mean, why should I feel embarrassed that I don't speak German? I'm sorry. I don't have a lot of opportunity to use German, you know, in the United States of America. Yes?

STU: When French people visit China, they don't speak Chinese. The difference between the languages is ours wins. Everyone wants to speak our language. Our language is winning. Get used to it. People speak English because English is used everywhere. People don't speak French and they don't speak German and they don't speak Chinese as often, at least in Europe.

GLENN: And now. It's picking up, but still over time people have adopted -- it's just like everyone follows -- again, who knows how long it stands, but people go to the dollar, they've gone to English. We've won. We are winning. If that thing continues, it would be nice. We would like to keep it that way. We shouldn't be disappointed in that.

GLENN: I mean, they don't even speak Latin in Latin America. What are you thinking?

STU: That's good cutting-edge commentary, Glenn.

GLENN: Thank you. I worked on that all night. I mean, what is --

STU: Well, you've got to just eliminate is idiotic comment about, when it comes to Muslim countries. It's so -- there are so many legitimate things to criticize Barack Obama on.

GLENN: Have you ever -- I was going to ask you, have you ever seen a candidate with more legitimate spooky stuff on the table than Barack Obama? Legitimately. Oh, shoot, I brought a book in with me that had quotes from William Ayers in it, and the William Ayers quotes -- we'll play this game tomorrow. You tell me, is it Reverend Jeremiah Wright or the guy from the Weather Underground? He actually calls it America KKK. William Ayers does.

STU: See, and that proves that Jeremiah Wright is a better speaker because U.S. of KKKA is much more catchy.

GLENN: Same thing. And you look at them as the same language and Barack Obama says, "I wasn't listening, I wasn't..." but all the people around him are speaking the language of Karl Marx. You want to talk about spooky stuff, talk about that. There's no reason. You want to talk about Barack Obama and Islam, ask this question. I just was talking to a Muslim guy just, I don't know, last Thursday. We were having this great conversation. He's from Egypt. And we were talking back and forth about, you know, the differences, you know, the way people in America perceive Egypt and, you know, the way America is perceived over in Egypt, et cetera, et cetera. And I said, how do you think Barack Obama will be embraced in the Muslim world? And he said, "I think they'll love him. It's great, you know, because he used to be Muslim, you know, with his family and everything else." And I said, "So you don't think that the extremists will look at that and say once he starts making moves that you know he will, you're telling me that they're not going to use that against him and say he's a bigger infidel than the regular infidels because his family left Islam?" He just stopped dead in his tracks and went, "Oh, wow, I never thought of it that way, oh, yea, that's exactly what the extremists will do. You want to talk about that connection? Talk about it in that way. That's a legitimate concern.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
