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.

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.
