Glenn Beck claims that he was correct the first time: Barack Obama is a racist.
Beck admitted that when he “unartfully” accused Obama of racism in 2009 on “Fox & Friends” and later apologized, he wasn’t fully up to speed about Marxism and critical race theory. “Now, Barack Obama, I am. I take my apology back. I was exactly right…you are a racist if you believe in critical race theory,” he declared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Obama critic Carlson invited Beck on his Fox News Channel program in the wake of Obama’s CNN interview this week in which he downplayed the divisive CRT agenda and smugly accused “certain right-wing media venues [of]… stoking the fear and resentment of a white population…”
Carlson began the segment by asserting that whenever Obama shows up in the media, he contributes to more disunity in the country.
Beck, who was a Fox News host from January 2009 to June 2011 before launching his own media company, recalled that he took a lot of heat for his criticism of Obama at the time and that describing a president as a racist only became fashionable when Donald Trump was in the White House.
“If you think that what Dr. Martin Luther King said, that he envisions a country that is seeing people for the content of their character, not their color, if you think that’s wrong, then yes, you are a racist,” an amped-up Beck continued.
“I am tired of toeing the line. I am tired of, especially, the Marxists. I was called a racist for calling him a Marxist. He is a Marxist. If you believe in critical race theory, there is no science behind it. It is a Marxist theory, meant to divide people and destroy a country.”
Earlier this week, Carlson explosively described Obama as “a hater, for real.”

Beck went on to say that President Joe Biden is essentially carrying out Obama’s third term and “that job is the fundamental transformation of America.”
“I want my children to have freedom; I want my children to be able to make a choice on what they do, how they live, where they live. I will not be silenced by a bunch of Marxists” a defiant Beck concluded.

In the guise of anti-racism, CRT seeks to shame, if not smear, one group while creating resentment in another based only on immutable characteristics and by creating a mythical bifurcation of oppressors and oppressed. As Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has said, the curriculum encourages kids to hate each other and hate America.
Meanwhile, collective guilt has never been part of the American tradition. With that in mind, Beck made it clear that, like fair-minded Americans, he doesn’t believe in punishing people for “the sins of the past.”
CRT — which is oddly being advocated by many who have prospered in America — is also inconsistent with the fundamental goals of the civil rights movement that led to federal and state laws rendering racial discrimination of any kind illegal.
It is conceivable that because of the grassroots pushback against CRT across the country, the left found it necessary to default to Obama to try to tamp down the resistance.
During the exchange with Carlson, Beck also drew a parallel between the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whom candidate Obama supposedly disavowed, and Pastor Raphael Warnock, the radical Democrat senator from Georgia. Directing his comment to Obama, Beck said “I bet you love [Warnock], but I bet you don’t have the courage to say it.”
