'If Obama's not woke enough for you, NOBODY is': Voddie Baucham warns there's NO END to what critical race theorists can 'problematize'

Dr. Voddie Baucham Jr., preacher, professor, and author of the No. 1 best-selling new book, "Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe," joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" on Saturday to uncover the truth behind the sinister social justice movement that has taken America by storm: critical race theory.

Baucham, who currently serves as dean of theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, has faced his share of backlash from the Left, which has tried to silence him for speaking out against critical race theory. He explained the radical Marxist worldview behind the so-called social justice movement and broke down how critical race theory is a dangerous attack on America's ideals, Christianity, and Western culture itself.

Over the past year, critical race theory has taken root in our schools, companies, culture, and government. It's not enough to be against racism, you have to be an "antiracist," proponents say. Our kids are now learning this toxic critical race theory-based idea starting from infancy. Baucham told Glenn that "anti-racism" is actually the exact opposite of what it sounds like?

"Anti-racism was popularized really by Ibram Kendi in his book 'How to be an Antiracist,'" Baucham explained. "Kendi argues that the opposite of racism is not not-racist. The opposite of racism is antiracism, and here's what he means by that: When you see racism as systemic — not personal animosity as we receive from a biblical perspective, from a traditional perspective, right, which is the hatred of a person, despising a person, looking down on a person, because of their particular race or ethnicity. But Kendi and the critical race theorists are arguing that racism is systemic, so you see disparate outcomes, and whenever you see disparate or unequal outcomes, you are seeing the product of systemic racism."

"If racism is systemic, then, if you're not tearing down the system that is creating these disparities, then not-racist is actually racist. And you've got to move beyond that to anti-racism, which means that you're constantly problematizing ... being critical in the oppressor-oppressed mode and looking for areas in the system that are creating disparate or unequal outcomes, and fighting against that in order to get equal outcomes," he continued.

Glenn pointed out that under these "woke" criteria, even civil rights heroes such as Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Frederick Douglass could be considered racist.

"Absolutely, they definitely can. It's amazing," Baucham agreed. "There's no end to that. Recently, a school I think in Chicago, was considering renaming itself after Barack Obama, and they decided not to rename the school because Obama didn't 'do enough for illegal immigrants.' Now listen, if Obama's not woke enough for you, nobody is. And that's the point, nobody is because you can always find some other intersection, if you will, and press at that point. You can problematize anything. We can divide people up into infinite, minuscule subcategories and always point to the fact that somebody, or some group of somebodies, has been underrepresented or mistreated."

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."
