Rev. Wright Beyond the Bite; See His Context for Yourself

Glenn:  Here's the people who keep saying this.  Here are the people who keep saying this, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louie Farrakhan, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.  What do they all have in common?  I mean, they all have the same approach.  It's that angry, you know ‑‑ Al Sharpton said over the weekend, "I'm going to shut this city down."  Over what?  I read ‑‑ I read the article.  I was for you until I started reading the facts of the case here in New York where, you know, the 50 bullets, the cops, they used 50 bullets and shot ‑‑ what's his name, Bell? .

Stu:  Shawn Bell.

Glenn:  I mean, horrible, horrible situation.  Horrible tragedy, but I can see how the case worked out that way.  It's all these people who are just ‑‑ they are ‑‑ they're using ‑‑ why do you think Jeremiah right is up there right now?  This isn't helpful to get the first black man elected President of the United States and you know what?  America is perfectly fine, perfectly fine having the first black American serve in office.  We're totally cool with that.  We are not cool with the first angry black man.


Do you know what my problem is with John McCain?  John McCain, I don't know if ‑‑ well, just one of the problems, but I don't know if this guy has the temperament to be the President of the United States.  He's got a temper to him and he's arrogant.  I don't want a guy who is arrogant with a quick temper in the White House.  I don't want ‑‑ I don't care what color they are.  I don't want an angry white man and I don't want an angry black man.  That's why people like Colin Powell, he seems reasonable.  I disagree with Colin Powell.  I don't think I would vote for Colin Powell because of his politics, but, you know, before I knew his politics, I was perfectly willing to vote for Colin Powell, because he seems reasonable.


Jeremiah Wright does not seem like a reasonable guy and anybody who cannot judge that this man wasn't reasonable when you're that close to him for 20 years does not have the judgment to be the President of the United States.

Glenn:  1‑888‑727‑BECK.

(Out at 9:43 a.m.)

Glenn:  Here's one thing about Reverend Wright that I don't really understand.  I don't understand how he feels honestly about God, because I want you to listen to this last part of this answer about Lewis Farrakhan.

(Audio played.)

Glenn:  Is he your friend?

(Audio played.)

Glenn:  That's the question I want to know.  Here's the question:  He didn't put me in slaves.  He didn't put new chains.  Who did?  Who did you, sir.  You.  Who put you in chains?  It's my contention that you put you in chains because there are no literal chains that are hanging around you now.  The chains are created by you and that's a mighty nice multimillion dollar chain that you have there that you call a house.  So, you are putting you in chains and then he says, He didn't create me this color.  Who created you this color?  Is this a problem with God?  Do you have a problem with God creating you that color, quote, unquote?

Here's another quote.  He said, God set me free to forgive stupidity.  He set me free to praise God in spite of an oppressive government.  Your government has been oppressing folks since we stole this country from the Comanche, but I'm going to praise him in spite of the government.  Our government has been oppressing folks since it defined the African‑American man as three fifths a person, but I'm going to praise him in spite of our government.

Okay.  You're going to praise him in spite of.  So, I don't understand that relationship, but here's something else.  And I wanted to make sure I was absolutely right and I called professor after professor after professor yesterday to make sure that I was right on this.  The three fifths of a person drives me crazy because it shows people's ignorance of history.  It's related to Article 1 of the Constitution.  Representatives and direct portions shall be apportioned among several states which may be included in this unit according to their respective numbers which shall be determined by adding the whole number of free persons, including those bound as service for a number of years and excluding Indians not taxed three fifths of all other persons.

Now, he says, Reverend Wright keeps saying that you have to consider the context of everything.  They're taking me out of context.  They're only using a sound bite, kind of like you quoting the founding fathers by same I'm only three fifths a person.  Well, let's just look at this in context.  This was pro ‑‑ this was pro abolition.  It was the proslavery faction that wanted to give the slaves the full human status.  Why?  Why?  Because they wanted more representation in Congress.  It would have maximized the congressional representation of the southern states.  It was the abolitionists who wanted to completely do away with slavery, that didn't want black individuals to count at all.  They said, Let's not let them count at all because then their population in the south will be very small and we'll have a chance to overturn it in Congress.  It had nothing to do with rejecting someone's humanity, but to preserve and strengthen the anti‑slavery majority in Congress.  It was not a ‑‑ proslavery southerner but an anti‑slavery northerner.  His name was James Wilson of Pennsylvania.  Why does Pennsylvania play such an important role?  Oh, I remember, because Ben Franklin was one of the first big abolitionists.  It was James Wilson that proposed the three fifths compromise.

Now, why, why would you do this, Jeremiah Wright?  Why would somebody who is anti‑slavery propose this?  It kept the southern slavery views in check.  It reduced their political power by limiting their representation in the House of Representatives.  That's why it happened.  Frederick Douglas, quote, it gives representatives to the south for three fifths of its slaves but what does that amount to?  It's a down right disability laid upon the slave holding states, one which deprives those states of two fifths of their natural bias of representation.  Instead of encouraging slavery, the Constitution encourages freedom by giving an increase of two fifths of political power to free over slave states, end quote.  Frederick Douglas.

I am so sick and tired of people distorting our history for their own political gain.  I am so sick and tired of people teaching my daughters, your family lies about our founding fathers and lies about our country.  We are a good country.  We are a decent people.  Our founding fathers were God inspired and they did not hate others, period.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
