Glenn Beck: Obama's speech


GLENN:  Now, last night he started to -- he's brilliant.  He started to give the speech that he needed to be giving the whole time.  He was giving the speech of, you know, little Sally Muckenfutch without a face, except listen to the way this guy -- he won't wear a flag lapel pin but listen to the way this man wrapped himself in the flag last night.  Listen to this.

SENATOR OBAMA:  I know the promise of America because I've lived it.  Michelle has lived it.  You have lived it.  It is the line of opportunity that led my father across an ocean.

GLENN:  Okay, stop for a second.  We know it's interesting.  He said, I have lived it; Michelle has lived it.  Remember yesterday Michelle was talking about -- and I want to make sure I get this exactly right here -- the veil of impossibility that is hanging over all of our heads, end quote.  That's the way Michelle Obama expressed it the night before last in a speech in North Carolina.  There, is that your view of America?  Here's somebody who says, "I've lived it; my wife has lived it."  His wife?  I'm sorry.  Fear creates this veil of impossibility that is hanging over our heads.  She also talked about how she struggled anyhow she shouldn't have been at Princeton and she shouldn't have been at Harvard but she did it.  But it wasn't done in a way where she was making the point, you can do it, too.  She was giving the point, they keep moving the bar on us.  You work, you keep doing it but then they move the bar.  I know, as an alcoholic that was always my problem.  And so you can never reach the bar.  So Barack, I don't buy it.  I don't -- I mean, it's very, very good.  And the general person in America will buy this but boy, oh, boy, you've got to wake people up because this guy is good.  All right, more from his speech.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It's the founding ideals that the flag draped over my father's coffin stand for.

GLENN:  Stop.  First of all, I can't take the guy's accent.  I can't take his accent.  I mean, I don't think I could take George Bush's accent, but I can't take four years or eight years of, "My father's -- with the flag draped coffin, was on my father's."  I can't take it.  I can't take it.  I don't even know what it is.  Is it southern?  Have you noticed that when he goes up north, it kind of sounds northeastern and then when he goes down south, it's more southern?  He's like Madonna.  You know how Madonna comes back and she's like, "I'm just..." you're from New York!  Has anybody else noticed that?

STU:  I have noticed that I mean, it was a big criticism of Hillary that she was changing her accent to the southern drawl.

GLENN:  Oh, I hate these people.  Stop with the accent.

STU:  Politicians in general, they are all irritating.  Has anyone ever changed a vote because of the way a voice sounds?

GLENN:  Somebody's accent, we're like, oh, he sounds like me.

STU:  Right.  Like, we killed Hillary Clinton for her terrible speaking voice in that shrieking sort of --

GLENN:  You know, maybe we need to add that to our stage show.  Maybe I should do part of it.  When I'm in the South, I'll do part of it like, hey, Jethro, I'm just like you.

STU:  This is my impression of what I think southern people sounds like.

GLENN:  Yeah.  Well, I was just eating some grits last night and I was thinking, shoot, I wish I had a beer.  Now let's talk energy policy.

STU:  But that was the criticism of Hillary Clinton that she was doing that, and I don't see how that -- like her voice is terrible, it irritates me to no end but I wouldn't not vote for her because of it.  I would not vote for her because of her crappy policies.

GLENN:  Or not.  The flag-draped coffin over his -- oh, I can't -- all right.  So anyway, he won't wear a flag lapel pin but he will talk about the flag draped coffin of his father.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  It's the simple truth I learned all those years ago when I worked in the shadow of all those shuttered steel mills on the south side of Chicago.

GLENN:  Stop.  Dan, do me a favor.  Look in the music.  Get the music blog open.  Can you just look under Billy Joel.  Can you find Allen for me, please.  And then I think we should just run Allentown instead of the rest of the speech because you know he's going to start talking about, oh, jeez.  And then there's poor little Sally Muckenfutch.  Go ahead, hit Allentown, please.

(Music playing).

GLENN:  Ladies and gentlemen, the next President of the United States, Mr. Barack Obama!

SENATOR OBAMA:  But in this country justice can be won against the greatest odds.  Hope can find its way back from the darkest of corners.  And when we are told that we cannot bring about the change that we seek, we answer with one voice.  Yes, we can.  So North Carolina and America, don't ever forget that this election is not about me or any candidate.  Don't ever forget that this campaign is about you.

GLENN:  Oh.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It's about your hopes.  It's about your dreams.  It's about your struggles.  It's about your aspirations.  It's about securing your portion of the American dream.  Don't ever forget that we have a choice in this country, that we can choose not to be divided, that we can choose not to be afraid, that we can still choose this moment to finally come together and solve the problems we've talked about all those other years and all those other elections.  This time can be different than all the rest.  This time we can face down those who say our road is too long, that our climb is too steep, that we can no longer keep the change that we seek.  This is our time to answer the call that so many generations of Americans have answered before by insisting that by hard work and by sacrifice, the American dream will endure.  Thank you.  Thank you, North Carolina.

GLENN:  He's fantastic.

SENATOR OBAMA:  May God bless you and the United States of America.  Thank you.

GLENN:  All we need is a little sacrifice.  All we need is a little sacrifice and we can get out of Allentown.  They're taking the coal from the ground -- not anymore.  The unions, yeah, they got a stranglehold on us.  Yeah.  Unions didn't leave.  They are out killing another business now.  That's what they're doing.

STU:  Isn't this a remix on the typical Democratic speech?  That's what Obama does well is he's not just bitching about Allentown.  He's saying that there's positive -- he's, of course, explaining it with no detail and how they're going to be here but at least he's saying it is possible.

GLENN:  Of course.  He's really good at using all of the Ronald Reaganisms, but he doesn't believe in any of them.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
