Obama: 'she's the typical white person'

GLENN: Yesterday morning. And go ahead and play the question if you have it, Dan. Do you have it with the question or just the answer?

DAN: I got the whole thing.

GLENN: You've got the whole thing. So here's the question from the morning show on 610 AM in Philadelphia to Barack Obama and listen to the answer.

VOICE: About your white grandmother and how there was a time when even she feared black men and that she even occasionally would use a racial or ethnic stereotype. What does she say now about you being so close to the presidency?

SENATOR OBAMA: Well, you know, she was extremely proud and the point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person who, you know, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way. And that's just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it and what makes me optimistic is you see each generation feeling a little bit less like that.

GLENN: That's great, that's great. She's just a typical white person. Can you even imagine, America? Can you imagine if I actually said, without trying to make a point, if I actually said and meant what I said at the beginning of the program, that she's just a typical black person. You know, that's just -- I mean, that's just the way it is and it's been -- and it's been bred into her. Can you imagine if I said that! What, is Obama turning into Jimmy the Greek? Let's take this again. Can we start from the beginning of his answer about his grandmother and I need to be able to stop and start this, Dan.

SENATOR OBAMA: Well, you know, she was extremely proud. The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't, but she is --

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop. Remember, so Grandma's not a racist. Grandma doesn't harbor any racial animosity in her. Got it. Next.

SENATOR OBAMA: But she is a typical white person who --

GLENN: Stop. Hey, Stu.

STU: Yes, Glenn? You typical white person.

GLENN: What's a typical white person?

STU: Apparently a typical white person is someone who fears black people walking down the street. That's what a typical white person does.

GLENN: Now, does a typical black person fear white people?

STU: I wouldn't know. Of course not.

GLENN: I wouldn't know. Would it even -- let me ask you this, Stu: Would you feel comfortable in today's society if you did know to venture a guess?

STU: No. In fact, what I'd like to do is this weird thing. I don't like to generalize by race. It's this weird thing that I got going on for me, yeah.

GLENN: That's weird. Yeah, me, too. Because that seems almost the definition of racism.

STU: You mean saying that there is a typical white person at all, no matter what you describe them as?

GLENN: Yes. To be able to say that, you know, a typical white person, you know, likes Abba.

STU: Right. You would be generalizing by race.

GLENN: And you would be wrong. You would be very wrong. Right?

STU: I mean, you know, certainly there are characteristics, different people, different groups have different characteristics but really --

GLENN: But generalizing by race, isn't that the definition of racism?

STU: Well, it's at least part of it, isn't it?

GLENN: Yes. Yes, okay, yeah. All right. So Grandma's just the typical white -- it's getting better every time he opens his mouth. All right. So Grandma's the typical white person. At this point in the conversation I don't think he realizes he's just made a mistake. However what I'm seeing in my head at least is that Barack is on the phone and somebody is in the room, you know, with him, a person that places the call and says, hey, you're going to be on the sports station in Philadelphia. He says great. They hand him the phone and they ask him this question. Now, that person that handed him the phone is still in the room and that person hears "A typical white person" spill out of his mouth. Hopefully not everybody around Barack Obama is a racist and she noticed that that's not good. What are you saying "Typical white person" for. And you can begin to hear, I think, you can begin to hear him try to kick dirt over those tracks. You can see -- I'll point it out to you when I think the person looked at him and said, "What are you doing." Go ahead, typical white person.

SENATOR OBAMA: You know, if she sees somebody on the street --

GLENN: Stop. Go back a little bit. Go back a little bit because it was right there that somebody in the room looked at him and went, what?

SENATOR OBAMA: Typical white person who --

GLENN: What are you doing!

SENATOR OBAMA: -- if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way.

GLENN: Stop just a second. Stop just a second. Stu, what was Jimmy the Greek fired for?

STU: He, I believe, said something to the effect of good athletes that were African-American, he didn't -- I don't think he used that term, but were bred as slaves to become better athletes its why they are better athletes today.

GLENN: So he was talking about how something was bred into a particular race.

STU: Yes. I mean, he was fired for that.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That was a long time ago, too, definitely wasn't 2008 that that occurred. It was actually two decades, 1988, two decades ago. That was about the end of the Reagan administration.

GLENN: Wow, that was hate monger central. Here's where Obama kicked dirt over his tracks. Where he said it's bred into us, it's been bred into us. He's talked about the typical white person but then he says it's been bred into us where it gives him the latitude to say, well, first of all, you know, I'm also white; my grandmother is white, and I meant it's bred into us as humans, this is a human condition. Uh-huh, uh-huh. So why is Grandma the typical white person and not the typical person? You see what I'm saying? I mean, why isn't Grandma just a typical -- she's a typical person, you know? She sees somebody that looks different. No, no, no, that's not what it is. She's not the typical person. She's the typical white person. I have to tell you, I feel like we are repeating 1992 all over again. Barack Obama has had his Gennifer Flowers moment when it was revealed that Bill Clinton was a philanderer. Now, I gave Bill Clinton the benefit of the doubt on this when they had their little 60 Minutes CBS thing where they sat together and they talked about it and they looked right in the camera and said, we've had our problems but we've dealt with them. I'm like, okay, you know what? A lot of people have had problems in marriage. I've had problems in marriage, I get it, I understand, move on. You dealt with them; you moved on. I get it, I get it.

But that was the first time that we went, okay, there might be a problem in here but they were so good at just making it go away that you're like, okay. Barack Obama is better at being Bill Clinton than Bill Clinton is good at being Bill Clinton. He's better -- he's a better Bill Clinton. Look what he can do. We now have evidence that Barack Obama has been in a radicalized church that is based on black liberation where the theory is if God's not against white people, then we have to kill God because got's not really God. The only God that is really truly God would be against white people. And we have any and all means to destroy the white enemy. That's the theology. And he's been sitting in that -- excuse me -- for 20 years. It explains his wife Michelle Obama. It explains why she said, "I've never been proud of my country." Now, they explain that away: "No, no, no, what I meant was..." and people bought it.

Okay. This is a more likely scenario, that she's been sitting listening to the Reverend Wright, the spiritual mentor of the family, she's been listening to his hate speech and she buys into it. She hates America. Then the hate speech of Reverend Wright comes out, Barack Obama, who's supposed to be as pure as the driven snow, is supposed to be a different kind of politician, he comes out and says, "I never heard any of it." And then he comes out and says, "Okay, I heard some things that were controversial but, you know, basically they were about marriage and things, not anything like this." And then he refuses to say what date he was at church for the last 20 years. When were you at church? Were you at church on this date? Where were you on this date when this was said? He's not going to give any dates. He's not going to give a single date. Okay. And then he comes on radio and he says Grandma's just the typical white person where fear of the black man has been bred into white people. You've got all the warning signs you need, gang. You've got all the -- the warning signs are all there, the clock is going off. Is anyone paying attention to this? Because it's the same damn thing. You know, with Hillary Clinton, do you need any more warning signs that she is a little slippery on finances? Do you need any more warning signs that, gee, there might be something shady going on with China and Hillary Clinton? Do you need any more warning signs that, gee, there might be something here with Barack Obama and the whole typical white person? Did you notice that he won't wear a flag pin but when he gives this speech about his preacher, they can't fit any more flags on stage? It's almost like, do we need Barack in the shot? Maybe we just have him do a voiceover with all of the flags on stage. I mean, for the love of Pete, do we need any more? I mean, why don't we just -- you know what? Could we make a -- could we cover him in a flag? How about -- you know what? I know this is really kind of a problem for us because we always hate when people -- for eight years we've been saying stop wrapping yourself in the flag. Okay, how about we don't wrap him in the flag. How about we sew a flag onto him so he's technically not wrapped in it. You know what? How about -- this would be perfect. He wants a colorblind society. Why don't we take his skin off and replace it with red, white and blue fabric. Wouldn't that be fantastic? Then he's the quintessential American. Now, we've got a problem again because that's a little jingoistic but though we don't have time, okay, just stand him in front of 500 flags. It's craziness! It's absolutely craziness.

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."
