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.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
