Glenn Beck: Obama thinks you are stupid

GLENN: I want to play a little bit of audio here from Barack Obama. What he said yesterday about the Tea Party movement. Not only does this guy stick a knife in your chest, but he can't ever resist twisting it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I've been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been having these rallies about taxes. You would think they would be saying thank you.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Oh. (Screaming.)

GLENN: Here is a large portion of the United States. I mean, the Tea Parties are not perceived in a bad way on their message, although Tea Parties, may I make a suggestion? I think the -- I think what you need to stop -- what you need to stop doing is carrying the message of taxes and government. If you think about yourself, let's say you're going -- you're on the bus. You're going to work. You're sitting on the bus and somebody would say, Hey, I'm for lower taxes and less government and there you are on the bus with a bunch of people who don't really pay attention to an awful lot of stuff. What does that mean to them, especially when you know 47% of the population, they don't, they don't pay taxes. Lower taxes? No. I'm fine. I'm not paying any taxes. Less government? Yeah, I guess. But, I mean, I get stuff from them. We don't -- we shouldn't be saying less government, lower taxes. We should be saying more choices, more freedom, bigger paychecks, because that involves everybody. More freedom, more choices, bigger paychecks. That's what we're for, because that's what Barack Obama does. That's what the left does. They control the language. They watch their language very carefully. We're only talking to maybe 50% of the country when we say lower taxes. And he -- look at what he's saying. Look what seas saying. I've lowered taxes for 95% of the American people. Is there any way that's true?

PAT: No.

GLENN: I'm just trying to figure out how he can make that claim other than the press doesn't hold his feet to the fire for anything.

PAT: He lowered withholding and a lot of those people we found out weren't paying taxes, anyhow. So, I don't know how he lowered their taxes unless they actually paid no taxes and then got additional money at the end of the year, which is possible. I don't put anything past this administration, but what 15 million people found out yesterday was even the with holding scam that they were running cost them money this time.

GLENN: Right. And what about the taxes that are buried in the new health care bill?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The health care bill is burying taxes.

PAT: The cigarette tax.

GLENN: Cigarette tax.

PAT: They're pushing -- and thank you, Lindsey Graham, pushing a 15¢ gasoline tax, trying to start up the cap and tax again.

GLENN: Run from your church that talks about social justice in the way that Jeremiah Wright does and run from any candidate that talks like Lindsey Graham. Left, right, doesn't matter.

 

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
