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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
