Glenn Beck: Obama omits 'Creator' again...



Vote and Comment: Obama Continues to Omit ‘Creator’ From Declaration of Independence

GLENN: First of all, in this debate with Coons and O'Donnell, you have the evolution coming up again. Why is evolution coming up? It is critical. First of all, they're trying to paint her as a crazy Christian

PAT: Witch.

GLENN: Christian.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Who's going to jam everything down your throat in a Wiccan sort of way as a Christian. And so they are trying to make her look crazy. But more importantly, you have to understand why evolution is so important. And we just explained that for a second. But you remember if God didn't create, if things evolved, then your rights evolve. You're not endowed by your Creator. It's interesting. You're not endowed by your Creator with certain inalienable because your rights evolve. Just like you go from a monkey to a man, you go from simple rights to higher rights, and somebody has to take those rights and give them to you and take them away or change them. This is again the evolutionary thinking of progressivism. President Obama just gave yet another speech.

PAT: And in it once again he omitted the word Creator from

GLENN: How many times, America, is this man going to talk about collective salvation, which is "I've got to save all the half monkey people or I don't get saved." It is, it is an affront to Christianity. And when I say Christianity, I know there are people like Jim Wallis, you know, who vehemently disagree. I know there are Marxists out there that believe in the liberation theology which is, again, collective salvation. I get that. And I know there are a lot of Christians out there that don't think I'm a Christian because I'm a Mormon. I testify to you now that Jesus Christ is my savior and He saved me. The only reason why I am alive today is because of the atonement of Jesus Christ. Period. So let's move on.

Here's what you need to understand. There is a difference in the idea of Christianity and how we all practice but not of the salvation and atonement of Jesus Christ. If you are a Christian, Jesus Christ is the savior. Through him your sins are washed away. He has the only power to save. Only Jesus Christ.

PAT: Well, what about collectively? Like if my salvation is tied into your salvation. So

GLENN: I don't know why you have to do this.

PAT: Say then that's the only way. If you're saved, then I can be saved.

GLENN: So it is an affront to Christianity. It is the antithesis, right? The exact opposite of what is preached, or supposed to be preached by Christians. That is the Gospel. Not the social gospel, not, you know, the new social justice that's the Gospel gospel, period. And if you want to change it, well, then just say "I'm changing it." But they don't ever do that. They let it evolve, slowly. Again, evolution. Now, what is the president saying in the speeches? How many times does he have to omit the word "Creator" in our Declaration of Independence? And then brush it off like it's not important? It is gigantic.

PAT: He's done it at least three times including this one.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: These truths to be self evident that all men are created equal...

GLENN: Pause, pause, pause.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Endowed with certain inalienable rights.

PAT: There it is. Endowed.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Life and liberty.

GLENN: Endowed by who?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Pursuit of happiness.

GLENN: Endowed by whom?

PAT: Well, it got the notice of Les Kinsolving who is a White House correspondent and he asked Gibbs about it.

KINSOLVING: questions. Twice in recent weeks the president has quoted on the Declaration

VOICE: It's been four times now.

PAT: It's four now.

GLENN: It's four.

REPORTER: Has omitted the declaration's reference to rights, quote, endowed by their Creator. Why did he omit this part of the declaration?

GIBBS: I haven't seen the comments, Lester, but I can assure you the president believes in the Declaration of Independence.

PAT: Again that wasn't the question.

GLENN: That's not the question. And, of course, he believes in the Declaration of Independence? Why would you say "Of course"? Woodrow Wilson didn't believe in the Declaration of Independence. Progressives don't believe in the Declaration of Independence! They believe it exists, they believe it was written, but in their honest moments, which you can find very few of them, will they tell you anything but this: "Declaration of Independence is an old document. It relates to the things that were going on in 1775 and 76, and there's very little we can take from it. It's not an official document, it has nothing to do with our law. It was a severance from a king, and it's really the the beginning of it is really not applicable to today, and the rest of it is just a list of demands."

Read the words of Woodrow Wilson and take it from there. Start there. And then look at all of the progressives and what they actually say about the Declaration of Independence. It is a document that they can quote but they don't believe it has any relevance at all. My gosh, they don't even think the Constitution has any relevance! And that one they know as real relevance. They know they've got to go to the Constitution, but they dismiss the Constitution. "Well, the Constitution is wrong. Well, that's just an old dusty document." Why would the Declaration of Independence have any meaning to them? It doesn't! It doesn't. And this is where one of the fundamental splits is in America. This is why there are two Americas right now. Because half of America has been taught that it doesn't really matter, it's all evolving, it's all breathing, we are evolving!

The other half of America was taught reverence. They were taught respect. They were taught that these words were sacred. That all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. But that was those were sacred words! That's the essence of who we are. No. The "Creator" was put there for a reason. Why? If you want to just look at it as a stupid document that was just, oh, it's just 200 years old, it was some OT or something, I don't even know what it was about. You look at it as historic document. Why did they use the word "Creator" there? Why? Because it gave power to the individual to sever themselves from an oppressive government. The government's argument was, "You can't do that. You don't have any right to do that. We're the government. We're the king. You can't sever yourself from it. You are his subject." No. We are subjects of only one king. God is our king. Once you cut God out of it, you become a subject again.

Did you learn that in school? Better yet, are your kids learning that in school? Everybody tries to make it, "Well, look at what a ridiculous, what a stupid who cares and he said Creator." Who cares if he says Creator? First of all, every American should care for a couple of reasons. What was Franklin's definition of the American religion? Oh, yeah, that there is a God, we'll meet Him, he gets kind of testy sometimes, you should serve Him, and the best way to serve Him is to serve your fellow man. Let's concentrate on the whole "He gets testy sometimes." Can we be on the side of God, please? Can we recognize Him in our society? Can we recognize divine providence? If we don't, we shall perish. Period.

 

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.
