Glenn Beck: Obama's spiritual mess


This poorly done artist rendering shows Glenn's reaction to elevators with TV's in them...

GLENN: Dan, do you have any elevator music? Because I think I believe it could -- I believe it could soothe the savage beast in me today.

(Music playing).

GLENN: See, now imagine yourself in the supermarket, you know, and you're looking for Cocoa Puffs. Your kid's screaming, spread eagle there on the center of the supermarket floor (crying). And you're just listening (humming). You know what I mean? Somebody could say, "Hey, Bill." "Yeah?" "Is that your kid spread eagle in the floor on the last aisle?" "Yeah." (Humming) "Did you last everything in the stock market last week, Bill?" "Yeah." "Hey, do you know where the Cocoa Puffs are?" "Yeah. Two aisles past the screaming kid." I can live in this world! I can't live in the world where Barack Obama can say we're cherry-picking where we're just taking a man out of context for his comment. I can't live in a world where Barack Obama says he goes to church every Sunday and didn't know what his pastor said the weekend after 9/11. Do you remember what your pastor said the weekend after 9/11? Do you remember what your minister said? I remember what my bishop said after the weekend after 9/11. I can tell you everything about that room the weekend after 9/11. What, did Barack Obama not go to -- was he the only guy that didn't go to church the weekend after 9/11? Apparently not because he didn't find out what his pastor said right after 9/11.

Dan, do you happen to have that?

REVEREND WRIGHT: We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York in the Pentagon and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards! America's chickens are coming home to roost.

GLENN: Okay. A little Ray Conniff, please, as I explain. Thank you, Dan.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: See, when you're on the elevator, you don't get upset. You just, you speak in hushed tones, you know? Stop, stop the music for a second. Go back to the clip. Let's say you're on the elevator and you got the little TV screen there in the wall of the elevator and this comes on the news.

REVEREND WRIGHT: We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye.

GLENN: About this time is when you say, ahhhhh! I can't take it anymore!

Stop. Now give me the Ray Conniff. Now put on top of it what's his face.

Elevator music is the key to life. Think about this time when the Ray Conniff singers are singing behind him and you look at your friend and say, "This guy's a dope." And you move on with your life! Now, let me ask you this: How is it that Barack Obama didn't find out about those comments for six years? He said he didn't even know he made these comments about 9/11, didn't know. For six years! He goes to this church for 20 years. He calls this reverend one of his spiritual advisors. By the way, just to throw on top of it, Barack Obama I hear is also a politician. So you'd think people would be saying, "Hey, by the way, Barack, did you hear what he said about 9/11?" Barack Obama claims he didn't even know about what the Reverend Wright said before 9/11. Well, let me ask you this question: If your minister said that the weekend after 9/11, do you think the people in your congregation would be talking about it?

More elevator music, please. Do you think people in your congregation would be calling each other up, especially those that weren't there, and said good heavens, you should have heard what he said! Do you think anybody would be talking about it? If Barack Obama really didn't know for six years what this guy said, then you know what? This guy didn't say anything out of the ordinary. They expected him to say that. This would have come as a complete shock to me if I would have heard that the weekend after 9/11.

Stu, it would have been -- I would have said something. If nobody said anything, if the people weren't, you know, all afire walking out of there going, oh, my gosh, then you know what? It's business as usual at Barack Obama's church. If nobody thought, wow, I should tell Barack Obama I didn't see him in the pew today; somebody should tell him because this isn't going to be good for his political career, then they every single one, every single member, every single friend of Barack Obama that attends this church with him think that he would agree with it or thinks that he wouldn't be shocked by it because I got news for you. If that speech were happening in my church after 9/11, I know I'd have friends who would say to me, "Glenn, whew, you should have heard what the bishop said." If I had a friend who was just in the business who happened to be in the church, somebody who was looking out for me in my business and the bishop said something like that, they would have call me and said, "Oh, my gosh, Glenn, you wouldn't believe what he said. And by the way, you better look it up because this is going to be everywhere. You've got to distance yourself from him immediately and stop calling him your main spiritual advisor." But it didn't happen because this is business as usual.

Now the left is saying that people like me, I'm racist because I'm cherry-picking. Dan, do you have what he calls Condoleezza Rice?

REVEREND WRIGHT: They live below the sea -- no, they live below the level of --

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. Let me explain this. When he says they live below the sea, below the sea level, he's talking about African-Americans that are Republicans. Okay, now play it.

REVEREND WRIGHT: They live below the sea -- no, they live below the level of Clarence, Colin and Condoleezza.

GLENN: They live below the sea level because they have a different philosophy. I'm cherry-picking what this man says? By the way, this is a guy who went over with Louis Farrakhan and met with Gaddafi. No, don't worry about that. What else do we have on -- need more elevator music, Dan.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: What... what is this? Cowboy elevator music?

DAN: "Walk the Line."

GLENN: I mean, right now this is like if John Wayne were a sissy. Johnny Cash is not -- all of a sudden Johnny Cash, you know, he's wearing like a nice lavender suit. What is this? I can't take this one. This one's going to make my head explode. Do you have another piece of -- Ray Conniff. "Oh, you're Ray Conniff, you are the guy who made the -- you made -- you're the one who made all the elevator music?" "Yes, I am." "Yeah. You're going to hell." That was the conversation with St. Peter. This is much better.

All right, go ahead and play -- give me one last clip here of --.

(Audio and music playing.)

GLENN: That guy's a dope. Do you know where the Cocoa Puffs are? You know, and now Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton is being criticized -- I can't believe I'm defending Bill Clinton. Hang on just a second. Lord, have I not done -- take me now, will you? Just take me now. I'm on an upswing. You know, I'm not perfect but I think it's the trajectory that gets me to a happy place. Take me now, Lord, will ya! All right, I'm back. So Bill Clinton now is getting heat for his racist comment.

Dan, I'm going to give the Bill Clinton racist comment and then I'm going to -- no, you know what, I want you to start with the first racist comment from the reverend that we played the first thing and then I want you to play the last cut after -- and I'm going to sandwich in between these two cuts the racist comment that Bill Clinton is making, that he has had to apologize for over and over and over again, okay? So you play the first one. Then I'm going to give the, just -- and I apologize in advance for the racist comment that Bill Clinton made because it's really, it's very harsh and I want you to know I'm just quoting it. I'm not -- I don't believe that what Bill Clinton said is right and I reject it, I repudiate it, I think it's disgusting, I think it's despicable but I'm just going to quote Bill Clinton. It's not coming from me. It's just a quote from Bill Clinton, and I'll put it in between and then you compare and contrast yourself. Go ahead.

REVEREND WRIGHT: We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki and we nuked far more than the thousands of New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost.

GLENN: Yes, Barack Obama had a victory in South Carolina but so did Jesse Jackson. He won the state in 1984 and 1988.

REVEREND WRIGHT: The guns and the drugs, build bigger prisons, passes a three strike law and then walks up to sing God Bless America? No, no, no, not God Bless America. God ban America. That's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for killing the citizens that's less than human.

GLENN: I can see why Bill Clinton needed to apologize. I mean, be like me -- and I'm not saying this but that would be like me saying, "Yeah, Hillary Clinton won Ohio but so did John Kerry, you know? And I'm not saying that. I don't believe that. It you to be very, very clear that's not me saying. I'm just using that as an example."

Here's the amazing thing. This man can say these things and yet the left will write articles like this: "Reverend Jeremiah Wright, anti-American or a man speaking truth to power?" And I can't even repeat the words, the hate mongering words of Trent Lott at a birthday party. Don't talk to me about cherry-picking. Jeez. The world was a lot better when we weren't drinking bottled water and we had Ray Conniff, you know, to tone down that crazy Johnny Cash music.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
