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.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
