Glenn Beck: Dreams of Barack Obama's Father




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

What were the dreams of your father?

Maybe he wanted you to go to college, because he didn't even graduate from high school. He probably wanted something better for you than he had. Maybe he wanted to start his own business and be his own boss. Maybe he wanted to take your mother to Europe or South America on a dream vacation. Maybe he just wanted to retire with enough money to make his golden years comfortable, enjoy his grandchildren and go fishing?

Even if those weren't the dreams of your father, they're probably dreams that you can at least relate to, as an American. Chances are your father didn't dream of leaving his family and two-year-old toddler behind to continue his education at an Ivy League school, so that he could take that American government-paid education back to his home country, along with a woman he picked up in Boston who would become his third wife, to encourage his nation to drop the newfangled socialism being promoted, in favor of old-style Soviet Marxism.

How many of our fathers had that dream? There's only one that I can think of. Of course, the dreams of Barack Obama's father were a little more complicated than that, but essentially that's what Barack Obama, Sr., did. He fought against the "African socialism" advocated by pro-Western "Third Way" leader Tom Mboya and the president of Kenya, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and in favor of the communist-allied leader Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.

In a 1965 article titled "Problems Facing Our Socialism" — written just one year after Kenyatta took office — Obama, Sr., mocks the government's economic policy of "African socialism" while focusing on what needs to be done in Kenya: "What is more important is to find means by which we can redistribute our economic gains to the benefit of all and at the same time be able to channel some of these gains to future production. This is the government's obligation."

He goes on: "But we also need to eliminate power structures that have been built though excessive accumulation so that not only a few individuals shall control a vast magnitude of resources as is the case now."

"How can we afford to ignore the pockets of this economy which are underdeveloped without some positive statement about their development. In Kenya, the colonial government only developed the so-called white areas."

Hmm, that doesn't sound Marxist to me at all.

When Barack Obama, Sr., went back to Kenya he became the senior economist within the Kenyan government, until his disagreements with President Kenyatta led to his firing and apparent alcoholism.

Back in Hawaii, according to President Obama's first book, "Dreams From My Father," his mother Stanley Ann Dunham continued to direct young Barack's attention and focus to the character and ideology of his communist, atheist, biological father, rather than toward the man to whom Dunham was re-married, Lolo Soetoro of Indonesia.

Caught between three races and three worlds, Barack Jr., was left with the faint memories and constant stories of the man who left him behind and later the stories of his father's father. Hussein Onyango Obama became a cook for the British colonial troops and converted to Islam.

What were the dreams of Barack Obama's grandfather? Well, Hussein became involved with the independence movement in Kenya and when that was discovered by colonial forces in 1949, he was taken into custody and jailed for six months by the British. According to Obama's grandmother, one of Hussein's wives, the British brutally tortured him while in custody to the point where he suffered permanent physical disabilities.

Putting that piece of the puzzle into place might shed some light on the way Barack Obama deals with the British today.

Remember way back in May when the White House said it would keep a "boot on the throat" of BP? Or when we needed NATO's help in sending more troops to support our war in Afghanistan? Guess who was there to lend a hand? I'll give you a hint, it wasn't Germany and France.

But this shouldn't come as a surprise. The British were reportedly warned when Obama was elected that while Britain will "remain special" to us, they "might have to make room for a few more special countries"

The dreams of Obama's grandfather — an independent Kenya — were realized. The dreams of his father — a Marxist utopia for that now-independent nation — seem closer than ever. The new Kenyan constitution was put to a referendum and passed late last week and the exciting new document contains a preamble, spelling out the "social justice" of the people's right to housing, health care and food. How will a nation as poor as Kenya make good on those rights? It also just happens to sound like the old Soviet Constitution, doesn't it?

Somewhere, Barack Obama, Sr., must be proud.

Now, what was it Barack Obama said about the U.S. Constitution?

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

BARACK OBAMA: Generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: Says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you. But it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Kenya's constitution seems to be a document of positive liberties; a list of what the government must do for you. Isn't that wonderful?

In section 33 of Kenya's new constitution, under the heading, "Freedom of Expression," it outlines a few other specifics:

(2) The right to freedom of expression does not extend to —


(a) propaganda for war;


(b) incitement to violence;


(c) hate speech; or


(d) advocacy of hatred that —


(i) constitutes ethnic incitement, vilification of others or incitement to cause harm; or


(ii) is based on any ground of discrimination specified or contemplated in Article 27 (4).


(3) In the exercise of the right to freedom of expression, every person shall respect the rights and reputation of others.

I'm sure that "incitement to violence" or "hate speech" or "advocacy" won't be the least bit difficult to define.

So are the dreams of Barack Obama unrelated to his father's? They are certainly not the dreams of my father or dreams of mine. Are they yours? My dreams — and the vast majority of Americans — share the dreams of our forefathers: The dreams responsible for creating the reality of the freest, most prosperous and generous nation to ever exist on Earth.

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?
