Glenn Beck: Media loving Obama

GLENN: I was reading about some stories on it last night and trying to gauge reaction. I know that Obama's wife was crying all the way through it, they say. I don't know why she was crying all the way through. Maybe she was proud for the first time to be an American. I'm not sure. But no -- yeah, you are right, this would be the second time she would be proud to be an American, when her husband was basically saying, "Oh, I don't agree with him, but it's the reality. It's the way things are. It's the way people feel." You know what? Excuse me? Maybe the way people -- maybe the reason why people feel that way is because they're sitting in churches listening to hate mongers. Is there anybody that could get away with this kind of talk? Would we ever have tolerated this kind of talk on the Don Imus show? Remember what Don did was make a racist comment in comedy. He was doing a comedy show and you had politicians and everybody else boycotting him, wanting him fired. In fact, I believe we have some audio of Barack Obama and his stance on Don Imus. Roll it, Dan.

VOICE: I wanted to again ask you about Don Imus. You have condemned his remarks about the women's basketball team at Rutgers. Let me ask you pointedly, do you think he should be fired?

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't think MSNBC should be carrying the kinds of hateful remarks that Imus uttered the other day and, you know, he has a track record of making those kinds of remarks. Look, I've got two daughters who are African-American, gorgeous, tall, and I hope at some point are interested enough until sports that they get athletic scholarships. Roadways voice so he should be off the air, off of MSNBC and off of CBS, off the air completely in your judgment?

SENATOR OBAMA: Ultimately you guys are going to have to make that view. He would not be for me.

VOICE: Finally, you've been on the program to promote your books. Will you or would you be a guest on his show in the future?

SENATOR OBAMA: No, I would not. I was on there once actually after the Democratic National Convention. I spoke about my book briefly. That's been my only experience on the show, and he was fine when I was on that show, but I don't want to be an enabler or be encouraging in any way of the kind of programming that results in the offensive statements that were made just a few days.

GLENN: He doesn't want to be an enabler. He doesn't want to be involved with Don Imus. He's only been on Don Imus' show once and he was fine but once Don Imus said that, it's so racist, he doesn't want to enable that kind of bigotry and hate speech. And yet he'll sit in a pew for 20 years listening to a guy who says the United States government and the white man invented AIDS and in a genocidal act took the AIDS virus and intentionally injected it into African-Americans. Well, what -- are you kidding me? That's not hate speech, that's not bigoted, that's not racist? He said himself in his speech that Reverend Wright has dramatically distorted views of America. He believes that white racism is endemic, that he recognizes that Jeremiah Wright, the guy he's been enabling for 20 years, believes that all white men are racist, yet he rejects that. He won't enable Don Imus but he will enable a guy who his theology on his own website, his theology, he has been -- and this is coming from the Wall Street Journal. So, you know, it's not some crazy right wing, you know, talk radio website. This is the Wall Street Journal. "Oh, but they're owned by Fox." Well, I can discredit them then, I guess.

Here's the thing. His comments are based in ideology, the profoundly distorted view is not something that is just a passing motion, that just happened. In his own talking points on his congregation website, he describes his view as -- quoting -- systemized black liberation theology. Now, the reverend that Barack has enabled for 20 years credits James Cohn of New York union's theological seminary with having undertaken this systemization. Here as Cohn's description of what this theology is. You got it? So we're one person removed from Reverend Wright. He says his theology is based on this, based on this guy and his work and here's what this guy says his work is all about. Quote: Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill all gods who do not belong to the black community. Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in black power which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.

Now, let me ask you a question, America. If the media wasn't what the media is in America, can you imagine anyone, any candidate besides Barack Obama having an opportunity to give a second speech today? His career would be over. Can you imagine if Mitt Romney's theology was anything, even just the first line, if his theology was like that? The media would be all over this. The media that hates religion, that thinks religion is nothing but evil and leads to nothing but destruction, is nothing but mind control, is nothing but something for the weak minded, that sews hatred, that sews bigotry and yet somehow or another the same media is missing this black liberation theology and they're giving a relative pass to Jeremiah Wright.

If you've read the newspapers, and I've read four of them this morning, they all somewhere will have something on, well, this is just going to be fodder now for conservative talk radio. This is going to be fodder for conservative talk radio? Talk radio is the only people that care about this kind of idea? Now, Barack Obama I think takes it a step further. He takes this theology and says, I don't agree with this theology but I want you to know that a lot of people do. That this is the black experience that people don't understand. I'd like the African-Americans that are listening to me now please to call me and tell me that this is the black experience because I don't buy that. I don't buy that for a second. I believe in many people's minds this is the black experience because no one has stopped preaching this.

You know, when slaves, when America had slaves I could see it. I could see it. When Jim Crow was happening, when lynchings were happening, I could see it much, much less but I could still see it. But I could only see it in the fringes. I can see discontent but there's not enough people out there preaching "Look at the progress that we've made, look at the progress." Instead the white man is at fault. In Barack Obama's own language last night it was not -- or yesterday, it was not just the white man because the white man is a victim as well. It's not just the white man that's doing it. It's the rich white man. It's the rich European white man because the rich white European has also hurt the poor white man. So you can band everybody together as long as your common enemy is the rich white man. "Well, let's get our pitchforks and torches and let's -- what do you say? We all head to Microsoft and kill Bill Gates today because clearly he's the problem. He's the one that's been keeping us down. Let's head to Omaha afterwards. Let's get that Warren Buffett."

It is a dangerous philosophy. It is a dangerous theology. Listen to the theology. The theology is the theology of an extremist that says God has to be with us. God is with us if we kill our enemy, which is the white man, kill him, all means necessary. This theology sounds familiar except this theology is based in Jesus Christ, not Mohammed. There's no difference. Hate is hate. Extremism is extremism. Religious distortion is religious distortion. You don't have to be a Muslim to be a killer. You don't have to be a Muslim extremist to go blow yourself up. You can be a Christian and a killer. You can be an atheist and a killer. You can be a Christian extremist and preach hatred, and that's what this theology is. This theology is hatred.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
