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.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
