Glenn Beck: Black Liberation Theology

GLENN: We've been talking about the Black Panthers. We showed you the video of, I hate crackers, I hate them all, kill white babies. Then I showed you another guy who's now running the Black Panthers: I wouldn't just kill the babies; I would concentrate first on the cops. That really ties to the communist group or the socialist group up in Detroit that we played that was talking about the border agents, that they have no place that's good. They are the KKK and you should treat them as such. And then she starts going into, well, cops kind of have a place at the table in our society. But it didn't go over well.

Then we played the guy who was the president of the Black Panthers, or king or prince or whatever. And that guy and what he did, what he said prior to the current head of the Black Panthers and that was kill all white people, but you've got to kill babies and you've got to kill mothers because mothers are the baby making machines and they will be predators. Those babies will be predators because the white man is the oppressor.

Then we played for you the audio of the Weather Underground saying kill all white children because they grow up to be the oppressor. That let you know that the Weather Underground was not a socialist/communist movement as much as it was an organization designed for whites to start a race war in America to help blacks.

Now, I don't think that these guys actually believe in any of this — I believe they believe the things they say, but I don't believe they are spiritual in nature. But there's a reason for whites to start a race war to help the blacks if you understand Black Liberation Theology. This is Jeremiah Wright's theology. It is the Panthers' theology. It is Black Liberation Theology, the Panthers are the Black Liberation Army. It all goes to collective salvation.

Now, I want to play — this is the guy who is the founder of the Black Liberation Theology. This was — it may still be — on Jeremiah Wright's website everywhere, all of these books and everything else. Cone is the name of this theologian, and I want you to hear. First clip is about what, Pat?

PAT: The violence of, institutional violence.

GLENN: Institutional violence. Listen to this. All power, institution, institutional power, all power is violent.

CONE: The group that has institutional power, they are violent. Therefore the mainline denominations in this country have been violent against black people.

GLENN: Don't know how we got there but that's where he's taking you. So your institutional power of your churches, racist. But then he goes on to, you have to understand that Jesus was a black man, and to me it doesn't matter what color Jesus was. Doesn't matter. But Jesus was a black man and the crucifixion takes on a whole new meaning.

CONE: Well, I think the cross, the crucifixion of Jesus.

GLENN: Yes.

VOICE: Was the first intervention and it was very violent. It was Jesus was lynched. Well, America has a tradition of lynching.

GLENN: Okay. So we've gone from the crucifixion of Jesus being the first lynching to America and its institutional mainline churches being racist and America having a history of lynching.

Now, why would whites start a race war like a Weather Underground wanted to start? Why would you do that? Well, I believe personally that these guys want chaos because chaos, if they're in power, chaos allows them then just to seize the system. But there's also this religious underpinning for whites to start a race war.

VOICE: Well, the cross, as I said, is God taking the side of the victim. It's a symbol of that. God making ultimate identification with the powerless. Now, if the powerful in our society, the white people, if they want to become Christians, they have to give up that power and become identified with the powerless, if you are going to be a Christian. You can't be identified with the powerful and also a Christian at the same time. That's a contradiction of terms.

Now, how do I, how do I know that you really are identifying with the victim? Well, if you are identifying with the victim, you not only want to feel good about that, you also have to pay back that which you took. You just don't say please forgive me now. The only way in which your repentance, your forgiveness can be authentic, your reception of it can be authentic, your repentance can be authentic is that you give back what you took.

GLENN: Okay. So reparations are imperative. You must step down. And reparations are imperative or you are not saved. Understand that. You cannot be saved through the atoning power of Jesus Christ unless you perform acts of reparations, if you are powerful and/or white. Listen to the words of the president of the United States who found Jesus through Jeremiah Wright, a preacher of Black Liberation Theology. Listen to what he just said here.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And recognizing that my fate remain tied up with their fates, that my individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country. Unfortunately I think that recognition requires that we make sacrifices, and this country has not always been willing to make the sacrifices that are necessary to bring about a new day and a new age.

GLENN: So our salvation is tied into our sacrifice of, he didn't state it here, but he did state earlier, this is where he talked about the white rich executive. Do you have this clip? The white rich executive doesn't want to pay for blacks going to school in the inner cities. That's how this clip starts. And that we all have a responsibility. Listen.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I really want to emphasize the word "Responsibility." I think that whether you are a white executive living out in the suburbs who doesn't want to pay taxes to inner city children for them to go to school. I worked as a community organizer in Chicago.

GLENN: Got it? This also may play a role in our FCC czar. If you remember the audio of him saying we all have to decide who's going to step down and give someone else a chance. That is the Cone Black Liberation Theology in a nutshell. If you have power, it is time for you to step down. And if you won't, they will force you because then you are part of the oppressor and the oppressive regime. So we all have to decide who's going to step down to give someone else a try.

VOICE: We need a media responsible to promote Democratic dialogue. We need media independent of corporations. If we really want news that we can trust, we must create a structure that makes it possible, and we must pay for it. One way to do this is to require commercial media to pay full fare for their access to public resources and use that money to fully support public service media in the United States. A modern equivalent of the post office would be independent from both partisan and corporate pressure, unlike our current structure. And unlike our current structure, it must be truly accountable to local communities through Democratic means. I would say these steps were radical if they were not consistent with the founders. And I would also say that unless we take these steps, we can only expect the continuation of the sort of yellow journalism we are experiencing today.

PAT: That's a different cut but that's —

GLENN: The same kind of rhetoric. It's still kind of — it still kind of works.

All right. So here's what I want you to do. I need you to be a watchdog and I need you to go through all the audio that you possibly can, anything. Black Liberation Theology, Black Panthers, reverence, white, black, doesn't matter. Anybody who is in the Weather Underground, old film clips, old documentaries, anything from any of the 1960s radicals. Look for what they were saying and please send them to me. Do it on the Twitter account at Glenn Beck, do it at Becktips@FoxNews.com. I will tell you that fills up rapidly. But I need you to pull it off and I need you to archive it. Burn it to a DVD. Because a lot of times these will be scrubbed.

I also would like to ask if anyone will go through all of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright texts looking for this context: Collective salvation. This is critical because it ties the left together. It is a part of social justice. If you can do none of those things, I ask you to do this: I ask you to unite with people and be peaceful. These guys need a response. This is what they've been waiting for. They want a race war. We must be peaceful people. They are going to poke and poke and poke, and our government is going to stand by and let them do it. We must take the role of Martin Luther King because I do not believe that Martin Luther King believed in kill all white babies. And this forces them into a decision: Was Martin Luther King a radical and we have been lied to all of these years; or did he actually mean content of character, not the color of the skin. Because that's what America united on. So the radicals who are now in charge are going to have to decide which Martin Luther King is it: The one we've been told for all these years or the one you'd like to introduce now to us and try to make us believe that's who he was. Which is it? I'm going to stick with the peaceful man who knew that justice was God's and that if they stood peacefully, America would choose right.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
