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.

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.
