Glenn Beck: Obama -- genius or out of control idiot?

The Obama National Anthem...

GLENN: Is Barack Obama an absolute out-of-control idiot or is he a genius. Which is it? Because I believe we've now come to a place. You know, nobody can really identify him. Who is he? What does he really believe in? I know, hope and change. But what is it he really believes in? What are his programs? You never really see. The healthcare in the stimulus bill, you see the vague outline of something very spooky, but you're not sure what it is.

Yesterday TARP 2, $1.5 trillion. The spooky outline, but what is it exactly? You don't know. Here's a guy who makes Bill Clinton's first 100 days look smooth. Everybody he nominated, they were tax cheats. One was part of a socialist party. Help line some of these things up in my head here, Stu, the things that have happened. The stimulus bill, almost a trillion dollars, riddled the pork. And he says it's not pork. You've got shelters for polar bears in it. You've got to be kidding me, right? You've got condoms and abortions for Europe? That's not pork. That's a stimulus bill? He puts it out there, gigantic. Everything in it, you are looking at yourself and thinking, you're crazy. At the same time he shuts down Gitmo, which he said he was going to do, but then he pardons -- or not pardons but drops the case against the mastermind behind the USS Cole. Then he appoints an attorney general who says that, you know, he is the Holder memo is something where you can go in and say to a company, "If you don't testify against this other company, we're going to say that you were involved." So right now we'll offer you immunity if you just testify against these people. And if you don't, you're part of it. The number two guy in the attorney general's office is a guy who is, who the porn industry said yesterday, quote, "It's a refreshing change." He's the guy, he's the reason why your library has pornography in it, that you can't have the kids have their computers protected in the library. It's him. He's the reason we're spending federal tax dollars on having Playboy and Penthouse made into braille for the Library of Congress. He's the guy who stood up for child pornographers and argued the cases in the Supreme Court. That's the number two guy. Then Barack Obama announces that he's moving the census. This is gigantic on its own, gigantic. He will control the electoral college. He can control how much money goes where. He can now say, "Philadelphia, we're going to estimate that you got a million more people." He can do that because the commerce department has a set of rules. The commerce department is very transparent. You've got to do it exactly one way. You move it over to Rahm Emanuel, you don't have those same rules. He introduces the guy for TARP, you know, the guy who's the tax cheat, the guy who designed the TARP program that we didn't use. He says in a press conference, "Yeah, I don't want to take away his... or he's going to do that tomorrow and I want to make sure that everybody shows up for that." But at the same time that the TARP guy has nothing to say, the big announcement is, "We're going to try stuff we've never tried before." Barack Obama is holding a rally at the same time. "I thought you didn't want to take away from the press conference." Oh, by the way, those were both scheduled at the same time the Senate was voting for the stimulus package. Is this guy a moron or a genius? I contend he's a genius and I contend and what made me think about this today is I was driving in and I was hearing somebody on the radio talking about the healthcare package and they said, you know, you've got to call in, you've got to get this taken out, this has got to be taken out of the stimulus package. And my response is probably your response: You've got to be kidding me. How many times have I called, I want my tax dollars to be reduced, I want to be able to deduct the dollars that I spend in long distance calling congress! And I thought like you, how many times do I have to call? They are not going to get it; why should I call? And then it dawned on me, how stupid is this guy to go to Nancy Pelosi and say, "Just do whatever you want. I need about $800 billion." And if Nancy Pelosi -- this is what we're expected to believe. Nancy Pelosi designed this bill, and she just did it. She just did it. Without anybody, she just loaded it up. Well, how stupid would that be, unless you intentionally wanted polar bears in there, so somebody like Charles Schumer can say -- do you have the Chuck Schumer quote from yesterday? You have it? Go ahead and play that, Dan. Here's Chuck Schumer yesterday.

SCHUMER: And let me say this to all of the chattering class.

GLENN: That would be us.

SCHUMER: That so much focuses on those little tiny, yes, porky amendments. The American people really don't care.

GLENN: Stop. Now, I could say to you today I want you to call Senator Schumer's office and tell him that you do care, you do care about those porky projects. Or are they this stupid and out of touch, or do they want everyone to focus on those porky projects? Because if you're focusing on the polar bears today, you're not focused on healthcare. Universal healthcare has been written and inserted into this bill. If you're worried about the porky process, are you concentrating on the census? As a guy who has to put shows together every day, television I have 41 minutes. There is so much -- I said yesterday there's so much I could do. I could do three hours of television and three hours of radio and still not get to everything. This guy's a genius. He's wearing you out. He is short-circuiting the only thing that stands in the way. What he has done, he -- look, what stands in anybody's way in Washington? You. Phone calls. Letters. Protests. Good. How do you take care of that? Well, here's the first thing you do. You've got to discredit, immediately discredit any of the chattering class. Anybody who's speaking out against it, they're the chattering class. So that chattering class, that's not the regular people, you know. You can dismiss them. And then try to destroy them. But you try to destroy them before they've even really said anything about your programs! Just come right at them. "Anybody who's listening to Rush Limbaugh, you don't even need to bother talking to me about anything." So come after them. And then what is Rush Limbaugh going to do? What is Sean Hannity going to do? What is everybody else going to do? They are going to say, "You know what, here's what you need to do. You need to call your senator today. You need to say you do care about this pork. You need to call them and tell them..." hmmm, how many times could I get you to do that before you are not going to do it anymore because you are going to go, Glenn, it's not going to make a difference. How many times do I have to tell you before you -- you might already be here. Before you look at this whole thing and go, "It's a tsunami. I'm not going to be able to do -- I'm just going to tune out." This guy's a genius. He is intentionally trying to short-circuit you right now. He is intentionally trying to fry the wires, trying to wear you down and wear you out. He is intentionally trying to make you feel little with this overwhelming problem. I'm going to play some audio for you and I'm going to show you what the result is of doing what he's doing because I think this is being done above him as well. I think this is being done by the Fed, I think this is being done on the financial sector. It's already worked. They learned the lessons. Why is everybody just willing to give all the money to the treasury and to the Fed? Why was everybody in congress just willing to go, okay, okay, okay, here, I'll sign it. Why? Because they didn't understand it. It was overwhelming. It was too big. Why did every economist miss it? Because it's too big, it's too overwhelming. Why did I see it? Because it's not. It's easy to see if you know what you're looking at. And I don't mean looking at -- I don't know what I'm looking at with the economy and stats and everything else. I just know a train wreck when I see it. It's the same thing here. You have to be able to step back and say, "What is it they are trying to create?" It's not about the polar bears. It's not about Guantanamo. It's not about the census. It's about all of it. They have learned the lesson that Obama -- that Osama Bin Laden is also trying to overwhelm us with. It's how we collapse the Soviet Union. Overwhelm them. Have just too many things going on. They can't do it all. Well, it's being done to our country and it's being done by our politicians to you. Overwhelm them. They can't fight all of it. Yes, you can.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."
