Glenn Beck: Why vote for Obama?

GLENN: Putting the radio back into Radio City, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I want to talk to you about Congressman Emanuel Cleaver. He is the superdelegate for Hillary Clinton. He says a lot of things that quite frankly are crazy, a lot of things I disagree with, but I want to play this audio of the superdelegate for Hillary Clinton, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver and what he says about the American people voting for Barack Obama.

CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER: They are looking at Barack Obama and saying this is our chance to demonstrate that we have been able to get this boogeyman called race behind us and so they are going to vote for him. You know, whether he has credentials or not, whether he has inexperience, I think all that's out the window.

GLENN: You know what, I think he's exactly right. I think that's what's going on. I think the media has given this guy a pass six ways to Sunday and they're to the going to do their job. They want him as a candidate. And I believe the media for the most part thinks that America, not New York, not Los Angeles but, you know, those people that just won't learn in the rest of the country. They really, truly believe that we're all racists and that we haven't paid a high enough price yet, and there are a lot of people in the rest of the country that have been convinced by the media or their professors or their textbooks or whatever it is that we're a bad nation, that we haven't atoned for the sins of the past. They are so eager to not be a racist that they will do whatever they have to do just to prove it. Look, see? "I'm not a racist; I'm for Barack Obama." If that's why you're voting for Barack Obama, you're right. You are not a racist; you are a moron. If you vote for him because you agree with his policies, great, but let me just -- may I speak to white America here for a second? Unless you owned slaves, unless you've insisted on separate drinking fountains in your life, unless you're Robert Byrd, unless you're currently wearing a little KKK pointy hat, slavery is not your fault. I know. I know it's crazy to say that. You had nothing to do with slavery.

Now, I'm sure that Barack Obama knows this, you know, because I'm sure there were times that he was listening to the right Reverend Wright as he was maybe reading from the Bible occasionally? I don't know. Do they do that in this church? I know that Barack Obama wasn't listening at the times when anything controversial was said. So maybe he was just listening when he was reading from the scriptures. But I believe you can find in there some place that the sons are not held responsible for the sins of the father. Or in this case our great, great, great, great, great-grandfathers. And in my particular case, a great, great, great, great-grandfather that was living in another country! You're not responsible for the sins of others. You're responsible for the sins that you commit. You're responsible -- if you're a racist now, you're responsible for that. If you're in the KKK, you're responsible. You're not responsible for the sins of others. You're not responsible for the faults of others. You're not responsible to make other people happy, either.

You know, Lincoln said that we have washed the sins of this country with blood. He was right. The blood that was spilled in this land over the Civil War is phenomenal. Nobody has any idea anymore -- because nobody studies history -- nobody has any idea the impact the Civil War had on this country in the cost of treasure, in the cost of cities, in the cost of blood. Nobody has any concept. We've never faced anything like that here in America, nothing like it. We washed the sins of slavery away with blood, and our forefathers, our founding fathers, knew that it was going to happen. Benjamin Franklin talked about it. "The longer we wait on this, the more we hesitate, the more we don't stand up to stop it now and stand up to the businessmen in the South, the more blood that's going to have to be spilled." They knew it. They talked about it. They debated it. They did everything they can to stop it. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It was life, liberty and property but our founding fathers, the racists that they were, knew that if they put life, liberty and property in there, the South would say, you can't touch us. In the Declaration of Independence it says "Property." Slaves are property. So they changed it. It amazes me that in our twisted version of America we're living in, that's being inflicted on us, that's being jammed down our throat, in this twisted version of America that we live in right now, I cannot hold my child responsible. I can't hold -- we can't hold somebody responsible for doing poorly on a test. We can't hold them responsible for murdering somebody. "Oh, they're 14." I can't hold them responsible. Barack Obama doesn't want to have them punished with a child. I can't hold my children responsible for their own sexual activity. I can't hold Wall Street or the banks responsible for their own bad business practices. I can't -- God forbid we hold anybody who has a mortgage that they can't meet, God forbid we hold them responsible. Yet today seemingly the only ones who are being held responsible for anything are the people who had nothing to do with slavery and yet somehow or another I'm responsible for slavery, I'm responsible for all the racist things that have happened in this country because of the color of my skin. I'm being held responsible for not only things that I never did but I'm being held responsible for things that I find reprehensible. You know what? I ain't responsible and I'm sick and tired of being told that I am. I'm not responsible. I had nothing to do with it. You have nothing to do with me; I got nothing to do with you on how happy your life is or how successful you are or how much of a failure you are, just like you don't have anything to do with my success or failure.

I try to do the right thing every day; sometimes I make mistakes. You try to do the right thing every day; sometimes you make mistakes. Our country is not some independent entity, although people are trying to make it that. It is supposed to be a direct reflection of us. Our country tries to do the right thing, but we make mistakes. The only thing that I'm responsible for are the choices that I have made. If I'm wearing a pointy little hat and I'm listening to the radio and I'm like, "I can barely hear what he's saying because this pointy little hat's covering my ears," you know what? I'm responsible for that behavior. Just so you know, I'm currently not wearing a pointy little hat, nor have I ever worn a pointy little hat, nor would I ever wear a pointy little hat.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."

Twitter is full of fake communists. Privileged teenagers and 20-somethings who tweet about Karl Marx from their iPhone, safe inside their parents' house.

A recent example of this is the "What is your job on the Leftist commune?" meme. It began as a tweet from some anonymous Twitter Marxist, asking "What is your job on the Leftist commune?"

She continued, "I'm gonna be leading discussion on theory some days, making clothes from scraps other days, and making lattes whenever needed."

The tweet got thousands of likes, retweets, and comments. Things like, "Bringing everyone water. Pouring tea and hot cocoa for folx in the reading alcoves. Checking in and doing a pause-to-breath with folx."

By the way, "folks" is spelled with an "x" for some reason.

Other commune occupations included "proofreading pamphlets," singing, archery, cooking, crotchet, "guiding embodiment practices," tarot card reading, "identity politic lawyering." Therapist, librarian, prostitute, and "puppy kindergarten teacher."

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

A magical place where "there are no painters but at most people who engage in painting among other things," which allows "everyone sufficient free time to take part in the general affairs of society — theoretical as well as practical," so that "there are no politicians but at most people who engage in politics among other activities."

Don't you know that communism is all about leisure and good vibes? A playground full of puppies and lattes.

Marx refers to "idle time" as a time for higher activity. He calls it "time for the full development of the individual."

Me Time. A life of spa days.

Generation Z is the first digital generation. The first generation to be born inside the internet. So it's no surprise that they have fallen for this kind of Marxist nonsense. If someone convinces you that Marxism will free you from work, of course you'd want it.

Now they're quitting their jobs in droves. The media is calling it "The Great Resignation," but really it's just a new version of Marx's anti-work movement.

Gen Z are incredibly progressive. And they expect the government to be involved. Decades of Marxist activism have finally convinced a generation that the point of work, the point of life, the point of government, is activism.

Pew Research Center found that seven in ten "members of Gen Z are more likely than older generations to look to government to solve problems, rather than businesses and individuals."

Seven in ten of Gen Z believe that the government should do more to solve problems. A majority of them are not proud of America, a majority of them hold negative views of capitalism.

They believe Marx when he says that Capitalism is only good for producing its own grave-diggers. We know that this is actually a description of communism. Actually, communism is much worse. Because it always results in mass graves.

They haven't realized that that the world that Marx foresaw is long gone. It failed. Repeatedly.

They don't realize that, even on the page, Marxism doesn't work. Because ultimately the greatest flaw of Marxism is that it forces us to choose between productive slavery and unproductive freedom. Either way, with Marxism we can never be free.

"The Great Resignation" is ultimately a crisis of freedom, identity, and exhaustion. It is, as noted in a recent Gallup report, an expression of great discontent. Gen Z feels like they have nothing to lose and nothing to gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain. They just need to have a little patience.

For the most part, Americans adhere to the libertarian maxim, "As long as you're not hurting anyone…." It's our undeniable belief in the goodness of the people around us. If you've traveled out of the States much, you know this to be true. There's a spirit inherent to America, and it is overwhelmingly good in nature.

Marx's utopia would ruin us. It would make us as lazy as Marx. A man who lived off other people his entire life. A man who had no loyalty to any nation because no nation wanted him. He was stateless. Do you realize how awful a person has to be for them to be stateless?

Maybe Gen Z just needs to see America at its finest.

Marx's utopia would quickly become disgusting. It would leave us feeling empty. Hopefully, they realize this before it's too late. For their own sake. Because, if America ever actually fell to communism, they would be the first ones against the wall.

When the government plans to spend $3.5 trillion that it doesn't have on a loose definition of "infrastructure," it's a good idea to know what's actually in it.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck revealed some of the expenditures Democrats hid in the bill, like a 10-fold increase in fines for employers who don't comply with the government's COVID-19 mandates, "equitable" bankroll for Biden's Build Back Better agenda, and "climate justice" funding.

"Let me tell you what's in our infrastructure bill, the $3.5 trillion bill," Glenn began. "Nancy Pelosi quietly tucked an enforcement mechanism into the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, passed it down to the budget committee, and sent it to the House floor. It's something you should know about, on page 168. I know, why read it? It's 2,465 pages."

Glenn pointed out the huge fees for certain businesses that refuse to comply with the Biden administration's proposed vaccine mandates. The fees could be as much as $700,000.

"Up to $700,000 ... that will kill all companies that are noncompliant. Kill them. That's 80 million of us who work in companies that are going to be fined in that way, if they don't bow the knee to the king," he said.

Glenn and Stu Burguiere went on to discuss more Democrat "wish list" items hidden inside this reconciliation bill, such as establishing "business incubators" who are authorized to disperse tens of billions of dollars to startup businesses in underserved areas, including the formerly incarcerated, and exclusive to businesses less that five years in operation or in "the planning stages."

"These sorts of businesses are the most risky place to put your money. Well, that matters when it's your money. But if it's not your money, who cares how risky it is. It's our [taxpayers] money so they don't care at all," Stu noted.

"Well, there's also $5 billion for climate justice block grants to pay for community organizations for, among other things, facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes," Glenn read. "Wait a minute. 'Facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes'? Organizing votes — that's what it sounds like."

"This is essentially all of us funding the fever dream of Barack Obama," Stu said.
