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.

"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."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?
