Glenn Beck: Whoopi says Obama trying not to scare white people


Bitter T-shirt


Having trouble keeping track of all the insults that Barack Obama has been sending your way lately? If you're a bitter typical white person clinging to God and your guns...then this is the t-shirt for you. Get yours today.

GLENN: Now, remember Barack Obama is far more intelligent than you are. He's far more intelligent than anybody else, practically anybody except Al Gore and John Kerry. He's that big of a brain. Did he wonder to himself why the crowd reacted the way it did. Now, remember it's not one of these things? ?listen, I'm going to play this audio clip for you. It's not like the crowd builds. It's not like the crowd is like, oh... it's none of that. They hear the line. In fact, they hear the first part of the line and they immediately break out. This is an attack on Sarah Palin, and everybody except apparently Barack Obama knew it. Listen to the audience in this audio.

OBAMA: That's not change. That's just calling something, the same thing something different. But, you know, you can't? ?you know, you can put lipstick on a pig; it's still a pig.

GLENN: Hmmm, that's odd, isn't it? His supporters are at least sexist now. What do you say? His supporters are at least saying that Sarah Palin is a pig. If she hadn't have been? ?if she hadn't have given the critical line which was an ad lib, by the way, if she wouldn't have given that line at the convention, it wouldn't have made any difference at all. But it does make a difference because she is the lipstick candidate. That's who she is.

Now, you move on from there and now here's the next attack. This one is from Whoopi Goldberg. Tell me that you agree with Whoopi Goldberg. Listen carefully. This is from yesterday's view.

WALTERS: It's hard for Obama now and Joe Biden to? ?

VOICE: Go after her.

GOLDBERG: No, it's not.

WALTERS: You don't think so?

GOLDBERG: No, I don't think so. Well, you know what? I have a very strange reason that I think that he? ?that particularly Obama has to be very careful.

GLENN: Listen to the crowd here.

GOLDBERG: He's been very good about trying to walk the center so he doesn't scare the white people and he still seems like he's black. I mean, come on.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. Go back and listen to the crowd. Dan and Stu, you watch The View all the time.

STU: Well, yeah. Yes, we do. We view it. We view The View.

GLENN: Tell me the reaction from crowds usually when they're doing something liberal.

STU: Oh, they always cheer loudly and clap and stand up.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. It's always, yeah! It is the biggest rah?fest, cheerleader fest for liberal policies ever. It is always stunning, the crowd. I want you to go back and play the beginning of this again. Listen to the crowd when she says, you know, not to scare black people? ?or not to scare white people. Listen to the crowd. They are uncomfortable. The Obama campaign is moving into a place now? ?and I'm not saying Democrats and I'm not? ?you shouldn't be surprised by Republicans. I'm saying the center of the country. This is what's going to be the key to this election. He is now moving into places where he is making the center of the country nervous and uncomfortable. Again, listen to the crowd when she starts to talk about he can't scare white people and listen to the lack of the, you know, NFL Monday night football crowd in what she's saying.

GOLDBERG: I do think that? ?well, you know what? I have a very strange reason that I think that he? ?that particularly Obama has to be very careful. Because he's been very good about trying to walk the center so he doesn't scare the white people and he still seems like he's black. I mean, come on.

GLENN: Listen.

GOLDBERG: He can't go after her as this black man attacking this white woman because? ?

BEHAR: Really?

GOLDBERG: Yeah, I really think that.


[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ].

GOLDBERG: You are missing the point. Don't change it. Hear what I'm saying. This has to do with? ?I think that? ?yes, but you have to stop talking so I can explain.

HASSELBECK: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. If I'm going to count the time that? ?

GLENN: Can you continue to play?

DAN: We can. It just gets into something different, another argument.

STU: It's again Elisabeth defending the fact that she gets cut off. Whenever she points it out, they all make fun of her and interrupt. It's like padding around the camp, not talking to me.

DAN: You can go through it if you want.

GLENN: I'd like to hear it. Go ahead, play it.

HASSELBECK: We can't call each other around the table because I have a lot of calling out to do. Every time someone's interrupted, it's, calm down.

GOLDBERG: You are right. I never? ?

[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ].

GOLDBERG: I always just walk over you. I didn't do it.

HASSELBECK: There was nothing? ?there was dead air, and I said some things.

VOICE: This is a distraction from the issues.

GLENN: Listen to that. Stop. This is a distraction from the issues.

STU: The all important issue of the black man intimidating the evil, the poor white woman.

GLENN: Poor white woman, yeah. Oh, my gosh. And isn't it so what's her face? ?who is the woman who just said that?

STU: That was Joy.

GLENN: Isn't it so Joy Behar and liberals to say this is a distraction, this is a distraction of the politics of the past. Oh, shut up.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
