Glenn Beck: Obama vs. Capitalism

GLENN: I want to get right to talk about the president who has now summoned, who has now summoned the BP President and CEO. I'm sorry. Wasn't it just yesterday or the day before when we were talking about what the president had said about the president of BP who he has not yet spoken to, he said this.

REPORTER: Have you spoken directly to Tony Hayward, the CEO of BP?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I have not spoken to him directly and here's the reason. Because my experience is when you talk to a guy like a BP CEO, he's going to say all the right things to me. I'm not interested in words. I'm interested in actions.

GLENN: Okay. Let me ask you this. What is that guy like, the BP CEO? What is that? I'm trying to figure that one out. Can you imagine — I said this to Bill O'Reilly last night. Can you imagine if I would say, if we were — if I had some sort of a, you know, rif with Al Sharpton? "Have you spoken to Al Sharpton directly one on one?" And I said, "Let me tell you, my experience tells me speaking to people like Al Sharpton does no good; he's going to say what he's going to say." What do you mean people like Al Sharpton?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: What do you mean people like Al Sharpton? What do you mean people like the CEO of BP? Is it English? Is that what it is? Because we know he has a problem with the English. We know he has a problem with the English. Didn't his wife write a dissertation when she was in college, some sort of a — it may have been her final —

PAT: Her thesis at Princeton.

GLENN: It may have been. I think it was how racist the English were. So we know he has a problem only — just not based on that. Based on the fact that he gave and boxed up and sent back a gift from England, the bust of Churchill. Now, I don't know. I've never heard of anything like that.

PAT: It's a weird move because they gave it to us and they said, no, no, we gave that to you; keep it.

GLENN: No, it was for 9/11.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They gave it to us as a — it's like boxing up the Resolute desk and saying, yeah, you know, this desk is kind of old and, you know, we don't really have a place for it here. It was a gift from the people of England. Have you — may I ask the president, have you ever received a gift from a relative that you — you know, like a little Hummel figure that you are like, oh, this is... oh, man.

STU: It's like in a Christmas story when the aunt comes over, you wear the pink bunny suit.

GLENN: You wear it. That's what you do. And you say thank you. If you want to insult them, you don't wear the pink bunny suit.

PAT: I'm not wearing the pink bunny —

STU: No, you are wearing the pink bunny suit when they come over.

PAT: I'm not wearing it.

STU: Because that's what mom says to do.

PAT: I'm telling Mom no.

GLENN: Barack Obama, is that you? Okay. So maybe it's just that he doesn't like the English and he has a problem with the English. Let me tell you something. When you just talk about people, you know, like,


'the English, well, they are going to say whatever they want." Okay, so that means all Englishmen are liars and they don't care about anything. Or is it that he — do we know what color this guy is? Is he white?

STU: He is white.

GLENN: So is it that you talk to people like that, all these white people and they will say whatever? Is that what it is? Is it capitalist? This is the one I think it is.

PAT: Me, too.

GLENN: You talk to these capitalists and they will say whatever they want. They will say whatever they think I need to hear. I'm interested in action because I'm a revolutionary... oops, did I say that? Oop, maybe I said too much.

STU: I don't remember that quote from Obama, but —

GLENN: No, you will. You will hear it.

Okay. So which is it?

STU: Could it be rich people? Maybe it's rich people.

GLENN: It could be rich people.

STU: Maybe it's CEOs.

GLENN: Well, CEO is a capitalist really.

STU: Yes, but a certain type of capitalist.

PAT: Head of a major corporation, uh huh.

STU: Could be that.

GLENN: Yeah, could be.

STU: Could be he has curly hair.

PAT: People who remind him of his grandmother.

GLENN: Could be — pardon me?

PAT: It might be people who remind him of, you know, typical —

GLENN: Oh, typical white people.

PAT: You know?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person.

GLENN: All right.

STU: You know what they are going to say.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred into —

STU: Of course, it's been bred in.

GLENN: Bred into her. She's a typical white person.

PAT: It's bred into you. You can't help it.

GLENN: No, I know.

PAT: That's why he shouldn't bother with calling the CEO of BP because there's a reaction to a president that's been bred into him and he knows.

GLENN: What a very good point, Pat, very good point. Using his own words to describe his grandmother.

PAT: Well —

GLENN: That when you see a typical person like the president of BP, he has a reaction.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You know, to those people that has been bred into him. Okay. All right. Now, that actually kind of works.

PAT: It does.

GLENN: If you understand who his parents were and who his grandparents were because they are not really the typical white people. His mother, his mother wasn't. His mother was a revolutionary. His father wasn't. A revolutionary. His grandparents, they went to the Communist Little Red Church just outside of Seattle. They had communist friends. So it's almost like Marxism has been bred into him. Like what — play the audio again because I want to make sure I use just his — the way he speaks.

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

GLENN: Let me get this right because I want to craft this exactly right.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: So Barack Obama, he's just the typical Marxist that, when he sees a CEO of like an oil company that he doesn't know.

STU: Right, right.

GLENN: He just has a reaction because it's been bred into him.

PAT: Mmm hmmm. Hmmm.

GLENN: I'm comfortable with that.

STU: I'm sure the media would be comfortable with you saying that.

GLENN: Sure. Of course they would. And they would say that I could write that in a book.

Well, let me just, let me start where we, you know — finish where we started and that is this. It's good that the president of the United States who has been looking for whose ass to kick, quoting the president —

STU: Quote/unquote.

GLENN: Has a boot on his throat.

STU: Boot on his throat, yeah.

GLENN: Whose ass to kick and has not wanted to meet with the president of BP or the CEO because he knows people like that will only tell him what he wants to hear and he's not interested in that. He's only interested in action, it's good to see now that he has summoned that CEO and president to the White House. Not invited them, not said, hey, can we get together, not had a beer conference. No, no, no. Summoned them. Almost the way Napoleon used to, or a... chancellor.

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.
