Glenn Beck: Michelle Obama Dangles the Bait




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

 Let me get right to some audio and video that is being spread around the Internet that I believe needs to be commented on.  Here is Michelle Obama.  Do we know where she was speaking? 

PAT:  I don't. 

 

GLENN:  Can you find out for me by the end of the monologue because this is important on the point that I want to make on this. Listen carefully to Michelle Obama recently about Barack Obama. 

 

MICHELLE OBAMA:  Surrounding HIV testing which is still plaguing so many of our communities, which you all know a lot of that is due to homophobia.  Barack has led by example.  When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in Kenya, we took a public HIV test. 

 

GLENN:  Okay.  Stop, stop.  First of all, let me just say this because I think everybody wants us to concentrate on the second part, and let me just say this.  Play the first part again, please. 

 

MICHELLE OBAMA:  Surrounding HIV testing which is still plaguing so many of our communities which you all know a lot of that is due to homophobia. 

 

GLENN:  Stop. 

 

PAT:  What? 

 

GLENN:  I don't, I don't know a single person that looks at HIV testing, Sarah, do you?  Are you shaking your head?  Okay, because you're laughing and I thought maybe you did.  I don't know a single person that looks at HIV testing as anything other than promiscuous sex at this point.  Homophobia? 

 

STU:  So the case would be that I would go get an AIDS test but I'm afraid of gay people? 

 

GLENN:  I guess. 

 

STU:  I don't ‑‑ 

 

GLENN:  It is such a skewed, ridiculous point of view that, I mean, just needed to be addressed.  Because that can't stand. Now, I just have to say one more thing.  If somebody has HIV, if I was living in 1981, they have HIV, are they gay?  Rock Hudson, wasn't that his name, Rock Hudson?  Remember when he got HIV and we were like, he's gay?  Somebody says, he has HIV.  I don't ‑‑ I think, oh, jeez, who was he having sex with?  And I don't mean male/female, male/male, female ‑‑ I don't mean that.  I mean, you think of the person having promiscuous sex. 

 

STU:  Unprotected sex, that's the point. 

 

GLENN:  What you think of. 

 

STU:  Or sharing needles. 

 

GLENN:  Yeah.  Can we please once in a while just recognize how far our society has come, please, just once?

 

Okay.  Now, what else did she say in that magic treasure trove of sentences?  Play it again, Sam. 

 

MICHELLE OBAMA:  Surrounding HIV testing which is still plaguing so many of our communities, which you all know a lot of that is due to homophobia.  Barack has led by example.  When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in Kenya, we took a public HIV test. 

 

GLENN:  Stop.  Stop. 

 

PAT:  So obvious. 

 

GLENN:  When we ‑‑ and we visited his home country in Kenya.  Okay.  Really?  Really?  Are we this stupid?  Really?  "Oh, my goodness, she just verified!"  Did she now?  May I ask this question:  What is it that they're trying to do right now?  What is it they are trying to do?  Every bit of their action is poke, poke, poke, make them extremists, poke them some more.  Every bit of it! Uh‑huh.  Mmm‑hmmm. 

 

Let's see.  Nancy Pelosi gets on along with everybody in congress and says these people, these tea partiers, they're radicals, they're out of control, they're violent, they're dangerous.  I can't take it!  I saw this in the Seventies.  I'm very afraid of them!  I'm very afraid of them!  They don't want us to pass healthcare because they hate people so much! 

 

Okay.  They gave that speech and then they go right out and walk through the crowd of dangerous people?  They walk through that crowd to pass what they say... (sobbing).  That doesn't make any sense.  No rational human being does that.  Poke.  Poke. Waiting for you to strike back.  Waiting for something to be done.  Waiting for you to yell a racist epithet, anything.  Waiting. They need you to be what quite honestly many of them were in the 1960s.  Radicals.  Violent.  They don't know you.  They don't know you.  That's not who these people are.  That's not who the tea partiers ‑‑ the tea partiers, generally speaking, hate the hippies.  They may have even been a hippie at one point but they're embarrassed by it now.  It's like the old photos, you look at yourself from 20 years ago and you're like, oh, jeez, was I stupid.

 

So now there's a couple of, there's a couple of options here, I guess.  One, Michelle Obama has just made the biggest gaffe of all time. 

 

PAT:  Uh‑oh!  Uh‑oh! 

 

GLENN:  My gosh! 

 

STU:  She let the cat out of the bag! 

 

GLENN:  It's a treasure trove! 

 

PAT:  Lucy, you got some splainin' to do! 

 

GLENN:  Look at how crazy she is. 

 

PAT:  Whoa! 

 

GLENN:  She just said he's not a citizen!  Oops!  Okay.  I guess that's a possibility.  I don't think there's a very good chance of that unless, A, was she drunk?  She doesn't appear to be; B, heavily sedated, doesn't appear to be; three, incredibly suddenly stupid beyond belief.  I don't think so.  Barring those or a sudden brain aneurysm. 

 

PAT:  Stroke of some kind. 

 

GLENN:  Maybe, could have. 

 

PAT:  Didn't appear to have one. 

 

GLENN:  Yeah. 

 

PAT:  Didn't appear to have one.

 

GLENN:  Can't imagine that that was what happened there.  Second option:  She's speaking to the Kenyan Society of America for the prevention of AIDS.  I personally can see a spouse or a candidate going to, let's just say I'm speaking to the Italian American community.  The Italian American house of spaghetti and AIDS prevention.  And I could say, you know the whole AIDS thing, boy, we've really got to get tested.  In fact, when Tania and I went on a trip, she did a responsible thing.  She got an AIDS test when we went to her home country of Italy.  Now, she was born in the United States, but she's, what, second generation Italian, or second generation American.  So is it her home country?  No.  Could I be playing to the audience, you know, hey. 

 

STU:  Right. 

 

GLENN:  "And I'm German, too."  No, you're not.  You're American but, hey, we love you for that.  Thanks for throwing us that bone. 

 

STU:  Yeah.  And how many times has he said, you know, my dad, he's Italian. 

 

GLENN:  Yeah. 

 

STU:  People do talk that way. 

 

GLENN:  You do do that. 

 

STU:  It's possible. 

 

GLENN:  Now, that has some likelihood of happening.  Do we know where she was speaking yet? 

 

PAT:  I don't. 

 

GLENN:  Okay. 

 

PAT:  I can't find it. 

 

GLENN:  If she was at the Kenyan ‑‑ 

 

PAT:  She wasn't, I don't think. 

 

GLENN:  You don't know.  Let's leave that possibility out there. 

 

PAT:  All right, okay. 

 

GLENN:  She may have been speaking at the Kenyan Society Against AIDS.  And that makes that a possibility.  What reduces that possibility is her husband is so tortured by these people.  You don't know what it's like to live with the people contributory negligence my husband's, even his birth certificate.  They won't leave us alone!  "And they are so frightening.  I saw stuff like this back in the Seventies and I'm so afraid!"  If your spouse were tortured, tortured by people that were claiming that my wife was an Italian, was born in Italy and they were just relentless on it, if I said, "And my wife and the home country of Italy," I would have immediately had a look of dread on my face like, oh, crap, I didn't mean it that way.  And I might have even said, "I didn't mean it that way," but I could see somebody just going on, "But they have to have the look of dread like, oh action dear God, what have I just done to my husband."  Because I know I would have gotten home and my wife would have said, I'm being tortured by these people and what do you say!"  And she would have been right.  But the spouse being stupid?  Not incredibly profoundly stupid like Option Number 1 but just a spouse being stupid and saying something wrong is a possibility.  But I don't think that's the answer.  So let me tell you the third option, what I think it is.  We'll do that ‑‑ hang on just a second.  No, go ahead, Stu.  No, no, go ahead and interrupt the show at any time. 

 

STU:  You were just going to go to a commercial and now you are blaming it on me and that is the sort of blame shifting that occurs on this program. 

 

PAT:  Yeah, it was good. 

 

STU:  I have some additional details on the speech. 

 

PAT:  Okay. 

 

STU:  Would you like to hear them? 

 

GLENN:  Was it the Kenyan Society for the Prevention of AIDS? 

 

STU:  No, but in a way it does explain the first comment that you were very frustrated about. 

 

GLENN:  Okay. 

 

STU:  She was at the, let's see, the Gay and Lesbian Leadership Council.  So the homophobia remark may have been explained. 

 

GLENN:  Okay, that was throwing a bone to the audience. 

 

STU:  Potentially.  But the other thing that's significant, it is a June 2008 speech, June 2008. 

 

PAT:  Oh, it was that long ago? 

 

STU:  Yeah, apparently just going viral. 

 

PAT:  June 2008? 

 

GLENN:  How did that happen? 

 

PAT:  Uh‑oh, Lucy, you got some splainin' to do! 

 

GLENN:  I'm telling you. 

 

PAT:  That does ‑‑ I will say this. 

 

GLENN:  I'm telling you. 

 

PAT:  That adds validity to ‑‑ 

 

STU:  Option Number 2. 

 

GLENN:  Wait, wait.  Does it?  Does it?  Does it?  Who released this tape?  Who's been sitting on this tape?  Who's been sitting on this tape? 

 

PAT:  True. 

 

GLENN:  Who had their videotape recorder going at the gay and lesbian advisory council?  Who ‑‑ were you there, Pat?  Did you tape this and then decide to ‑‑ 

 

PAT:  No, uh‑uh. 

 

GLENN:  Where did this tape come from at this time?  Huh.  I think it actually adds credibility to theory Number 3, which we will give to you here in just a second.

 

<<BREAK>>

 

GLENN:  We're back with Michelle Obama and new video that is going around now from Michelle Obama where she talks about Barack Obama and his home country of Kenya.  I gave you the first two options.  The first two options is, oh, my gosh, she's just verified he's not an American citizen!  Oh!  Uh‑huh.  Option Number 2, she is just saying something stupid as a spouse.  She's just saying something, you know, political.  You know, remember if this came out in 2008, they are trying to ‑‑ he's a man of the world, he's lived all over the world, he's his home country of Kenya, which, his dad is from Kenya.  His dad left him to go join the communist government of Kenya.  Hello.  He's from Kenya.  His aunt is about to be deported back to Kenya because she's an illegal alien here.  That's never going to happen, but you get the point.  So it is kind of home country.  Saying something stupid. The third one is, it's really, why is this coming out now?  As we find out, it's 2008 and it was at the, what is it, the gay and lesbian ‑‑ 

 

STU:  Leadership council of the DNC. 

 

GLENN:  Of the DNC.  Who had this videotape and they have been sitting on it for so long?  Why is this being released now? Here's the third theory.  The third theory is this is a losing battle.  This paints people into nut jobs, just as much as Bush blew up the World Trade Center and Dick Cheney went and was SCUBA diving and he blew up the levees in New Orleans.  Now, there are people that believe that the 9/11 job was done by George W. Bush and his henchmen and Dick Cheney only having heart attacks because he was trying to SCUBA dive so much, getting in shape for blowing up the levees.  Those people are nuts.  The idea of the birth certificate?  Let's just say that it's not true.  Let's just say that he's actually born here in America. 

 

STU:  Let's be crazy. 

 

GLENN:  Be out on the edge.  Be out on the edge.  Let's just say he was born here in America and there weren't, you know, KGB government operatives that were planting stories in the press this in Hawaii in 1962. 

 

PAT:  Okay, but this is all silly. 

 

GLENN:  I know. 

 

PAT:  You know. 

 

GLENN:  I know. 

 

PAT:  I mean ‑‑ 

 

GLENN:  I got it. 

 

PAT:  You are asking us to stretch. 

 

GLENN:  I know. 

 

PAT:  Okay. 

 

GLENN:  Let's just say that he's not the Manchurian Candidate from birth. 

 

PAT:  Okay. 

 

GLENN:  Okay?  If you have ‑‑ if you're playing to your base and you are trying to paint people as crazy, as tea partygoers, as hateful, as people you just can't be around and you are trying to rally your base around you, wouldn't one of the best things that you could do is go on the Birther thing?  Let me just give you the poll numbers on it.  With independents, 83‑8.  Was he born in America?  83% of independents say yes.  8% say no.  Among adults between 45 and 59, 82 to 8.  In the Midwest?  90‑6.  In the midwest, not the Northeast.  In the Midwest ‑‑ think Ohio ‑‑ 90‑6.  They have nothing that polls this well, nothing.  Is he an American?  Yes.  The majority says overwhelmingly yes.  So if you want to make them into moon landing people, what's the most effective sign that you could carry at a tea party?  I mean, if you are thinking like the Obama administration, he was born in Kenya.  It's the most effective sign to paint you into a nut job that you can carry.  Why is this tape being released now?  They need you to be perceived as a nut job!

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
