Glenn Beck: President Obama Is Still a Community Organizer

Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5pm & 2am ET on FOX News Channel

Where's the media on President Obama's firing of AmeriCorps Inspector General, Gerald Walpin?

It has not been once mentioned on the evening news programs, in The New York Times, in The Washington Post (though its Federal Eye blog did cover the story.)

It got two short mentions in The L.A. Times and Boston Globe. And one small mention in each of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Chicago Tribune, Orlando Sentinel, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Grand Rapid Press.

That's it.

Here's the one thing no one seems to understand: President Obama is still a community organizer, it's just on a much bigger scale with much higher stakes.

While the media have looked to compare him to presidents like FDR and Lincoln, the best comparison might be to left-wing community activist Saul Alinsky, often called the "Father of Community Organizers." If you know what Saul Alinsky was about, everything that Obama does will make more sense.

Alinsky started in Chicago stockyards in the 1930s and his "Rules for Radicals" became the handbook for community organizing — arguing in it that a socialist revolution didn't come through violence, but by slowly eroding principles of the republic at the polls.

Although Obama was just 11 years old when Alinsky died in 1972, he was inspired by Alinsky's disciples who taught him community organizing at age 23, right after he graduated from Columbia University.

During his time in Chicago, Obama built up and guided a small network of grassroots groups that "agitated" for things like better playgrounds and safer communities and Obama said in those neighborhoods that he "received the best education I ever had."

Young Obama passed on that education, training community organizers on Alinsky's "power tactics," which he seems to still operate under today.

For example, Alinsky's power tactic step 11: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it."

Doesn't that sound an awful lot like the way Obama handled the AIG executive bonuses? The banking executives? Rush Limbaugh? And the list goes on and on.

Obama perfected the tactics that so-called community organizers like ACORN use every day. It's the tactic of misdirection.

The community organizer mentality — the ACORN mentality — is to distract you from their main goal, so even though some people are looking at their voter registration fraud, we should follow the money, too.

While politicians talk about 46 million people without health care, what's their real agenda? And what's the effect on the 255 million with health care?

As we showed you Monday, the left knows the public insurance option will put employer-based, private insurance out of business and the government can bide its time, taking losses, until that finally happens.

So, while these community organizers appear to be agitating for one seemingly noble goal or another, their underlying mission is, as Alinsky said, "how the have-nots can take power from the haves."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
