Glenn Beck: Obama's 'typical white' grandmother



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: ‑‑ to the ‑‑ what did Sarah Palin call the death panels? You laugh all the way to the death panels. Go ahead. Laugh all you want, America.

Let me give you this from Bloomberg today. President Barack Obama has said his grandmother's hip replacement surgery during the final weeks of her life made him wonder whether expensive procedures for the terminally ill reflect a sustainable model for healthcare. The president's grandmother, the up with ‑‑ what did he call his grandma? Here, I have it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person who if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, there's a reaction that's been bred into ‑‑

PAT: Bred into her, scared.

GLENN: Hatred was bred into his typical white person grandmother.

PAT: It's in the white person DNA.

GLENN: So President Obama said his grandmother's hip replacement surgery during the final weeks of her life made him wonder about the expensive procedures for the terminally ill, if they reflect a sustainable model for healthcare. The president's grandmother had a hip replaced after she was diagnosed with cancer. Obama said in an interview with a New York Times magazine that was published today. Dunham, who lived in Honolulu died at the age of 86 two days before her grandson's election victory. "I don't know how much that hip replacement cost..." wow, he should have figured that out. I mean, isn't he ‑‑ two days before the election he was a millionaire then. He should have just paid for grandma's hip replacement. If he was worried it was a sustainable model, I mean, why didn't he just ‑‑ he's a millionaire. Why didn't he take her out of that evil health insurance thing? You know, for instance, I don't believe Rush has health insurance. I think Rush just pays for it. You know, you're a millionaire. Why not just pay for it, Barack. And especially your grandmother. He said, I would have paid out of pocket for that hip replacement just because she's my grandmother. He didn't. But he would have. Obama said, "You just get some very difficult moral issues when considering whether to give my grandmother or everyone else's aging grandparents or parents a hip replacement when they're terminally ill. That's where I think you've got to get into some very difficult moral issues."

PAT: Like what?

GLENN: The chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80% of the total healthcare bill out there. Not just the terminally ill. Now he's moved it from his grandmother to the terminally ill, which she was, to the "And those toward the end of their life." Obama promised during a presidential campaign that healthcare overhaul would be top priority. He said that at a Missouri town hall meeting yesterday he hopes congress will pass healthcare legislation. The issue has been divisive. Finding an answer to that will keep costs down while extending coverage to the estimated 46 million Americans without health assurance has eluded past presidents. Ruthless pragmatism. Obama said that his economic advisors aren't constrained by ideology or connections to former treasury secretary Robert Rubin. "What I have been constantly been searching for is a ruthless pragmatism when it comes to economic policy. When it comes to something like investment banking versus commercial banking," blah, blah‑blah, blah‑blah, blah‑blah.

Okay. Ruthless pragmatism. Stu, can you define that?

STU: Well, I mean, it comes back to specifically I think the things like the disability adjusted life expectancy, when you are not living a quality life, if you are a complete ‑‑ in the complete life system.

GLENN: So in other words, if you have a child, if I can remember the words from, I believe it was Holdren, it's one of the czars, that if you have a ‑‑ no, I think it was Ezekiel. I don't have it in front of me. It's one of the czars to where if you have a person who is so disabled and will not be able to be pulled out of the disability that they don't really count as a productive member of society. And therefore shouldn't receive any healthcare money, that would be ruthless and pragmatic.

STU: Both. It would qualify for both.

GLENN: So we know that he questioned whether or not to give his own mother ‑‑ grandmother, a woman he loved so dearly...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person.

GLENN: You know, somebody that he just loved so dearly. He wondered if she should have a hip replacement surgery done at the end of her life. I wonder if he's going to love your grandmother as much.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person.

GLENN: And make that decision for you because you can't make ‑‑ as he couldn't make it. He couldn't tell grandma not to have that. He loves her. So that's the problem. Maybe we just need a nanny. Maybe we just need some parent who will make that decision for us because we're too close, as he was. He was too close to his grandmother to make that decision. So maybe we should just have some sort of a panel make that decision for us.

STU: And all of this sound so horrific I think to American audiences because it's so against our culture. But this, it's our culture that's the different one. All around Europe and everywhere else, that's how they make these decisions.

PAT: More pragmatic.

GLENN: Yes, but more ruthless. More ruthless I think we've found over the years. Here's the ‑‑

STU: But that's the reason. The reason we spend more on healthcare is ‑‑

GLENN: Is because we care.

STU: ‑‑ because we care.

GLENN: We care about the elderly.

STU: We spend money two weeks before they die. They don't. They get off. They don't ‑‑

GLENN: We value life in this country and when you start devaluing life, then you're in trouble. You let people make their own decisions. You know there's a lot of ways that you could let the private industry come up with insurance.

Look, why don't you have a 20‑year plan. Rand Paul was on the program and he said have a 20‑year insurance plan. So you buy into insurance, you get it for 20 years. So that way if you get sick or something, they can't take you off. Everybody is the same. They just get a 20‑year plan. Now, as you get older, it's just like life insurance. As you get older, you are going to have to pay more. I mean, it's crazy what we're doing here. It is crazy.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

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.
