The Argument Against Idiots: ObaMyths

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts


The issue:

ObaMyths: Yes, this time, the idiot will most likely be your conservative friend. All of these ridiculous email rumors about Obama weaken our position, thus, they need to be addressed. There are way too many real, factual problems with Barack Obama to get sidetracked in Urban Legend.

What the liberal (or in this case, misguided conservative) whiners say:

1. 'Barack Obama is a secret radical Muslim!'


2. 'Barack Obama refuses to say the Pledge of Allegiance!'


3. 'In his first book Obama wrote: "I will stand with the Muslims if the political winds shift in an ugly direction'


4. 'Barack Obama was sworn in on the Quran, NOT the Bible'


5. 'Barack Obama's ears are so big, if he's elected President, he could cause a total eclipse of the sun if he goes up in Air Force One!'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments:

1. No, he is a converted Christian, whose father was Muslim. There is no evidence at all of his having been raised at some radical Madrassa in Indonesia during his childhood. That was a rumor thought to have originated from the Hillary Clinton campaign. A far better and TRUE argument is that he spent 19 years in the radicalized "Black Liberation Theology" Trinity United Church, with Pastor Jeremiah Wright. With "BLT's" origins in Marxism and hatred for whites, this should be a concern to ANY thinking American. It is also accurate to say that Barack Obama has some VERY radical associates. Anti-American Reverend Jeremiah Wright for one. Weather Underground terrorist, William Ayers, who bombed the Pentagon in the early '70's for another. The mentor to whom he refers in his first book, "Dreams From My Father", Frank Marshall Davis, was a Black poet and avowed member of the Communist Party USA. He mentions in that same book that in college, he preferred the company of Marxist professors, among other radicals. So, a Muslim? No. An extremist and a Marxist? Yes.

2. The true origin of this rumor, is that at a particular campaign appearance during the primaries, Obama was onstage with Hillary Clinton and Bill Richardson. When the National Anthem was played, Hillary and Richardson both placed their hands over the hearts for the anthem. Obama stood with his hands clasped in front of him. Disrespectful? Yes. He has also alternately said he wouldn't wear a flag pin on his lapel, then said he never said that, then said he would, then didn't again. Obama also recently removed the American flag from he tail section of his customized campaign jet, and replaced it with his "O" logo. Ego over patriotism?

3. Actually, he doesn't say anything like this statement in his first book. Someone took what he said about being careful in a post 9/11 world, not to remove any groups rights, and twisted it into the "Muslim" statement, but he makes no specific reference to Muslims at all.

4. Obama was sworn in on the Bible, like everyone else. This rumor confuses Muslim Congressman, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, with Obama. Ellison was sworn in on the Bible in the group ceremony with all the other freshmen in Congress, then used the Quran for his private ceremony. In their private ceremony, officials can be sworn in on the Yellow Pages if they want.

5. After checking with NASA's solar scientists, this one actually appears to be true. 

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
