Glenn Beck Says Obama's Presidency Has Set Back Race Relations In America By 50 Years

Glenn Beck was outraged by President Obama's remarks at a Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner over the weekend, where he said that he would consider it "a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election."

Beck, who beagn attacking Obama as a white-hating racist just months after he took office but now has the gall to say that Obama is personally responsible for failing to solve the issue of race relations in this country, said that the black community has no reason to listen to Obama on this issue because his presidency has been responsible for setting back race relations in America by decades.

"Why should people in the black community give him a good send-off?" Beck asked, claiming that things have only gotten progressively worse for African American's during Obama's time in office. When his co-host, Pat Gray, said that Obama "set back race relations in this country 40 years, 50 years," Beck readily concurred.

"Easily," Beck agreed. "Easily"

'Historians Will Read About Us': Glenn Beck Declares That Future Generations Will Build Statues Of His Audience

For years, Glenn Beck has been telling his audience that they will go down in history as the ones who saved America when everything collapsed. But now that time has come, he told his studio audience last night, and so they had better be prepared. 

Beck predicted that regardless of whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton wins the election, America is headed for utter chaos and destruction, during which members of his audience will emerge as the leaders whom future generations will build statues of and credit with restoring this nation. Most importantly, he promised, they will be richly rewarded by God in heaven.

"You're going to have to be leader," Beck told them. "It's a huge responsibility but it's good" because, if they believe in eternal life, they now "have the big opportunity to step up and really be a person that returns home with honor."

"They will build statues of people from these days some day," Beck said. "Historians will read about us. Not everybody has that opportunity. That's a glorious opportunity given to us."

Glenn Beck Warns That President Obama 'Is Giving Away The Internet'

Back in late 2014 and early 2015, Glenn Beck issued several dire warnings, predicting that the United States would destroy the internet and drive him out of business if it implemented net neutrality.

America deserved "to be destroyed," he proclaimed, if we were such "morons" that we couldn't see that we were ruining the internet, and with it, the last bastion of freedom in the world.

Beck's opposition to net neutrality, of course, was rooted entirely in his own ignorance about what it actually was. In fact, it has now been in effect for over a year and Beck is still on the air, despite guaranteeing that "voices like ours will be gone" if it were to be enacted.

Given Beck's willingness to spout off about things he clearly doesn't understand, it was no surprise to hear him kick off his radio show today by warning that President Obama "is giving away the internet" and handing it over to Russia, China and Iran.

Beck was, predictably, supporting Sen. Ted Cruz's dishonest crusade against plans to allow oversight of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to transition to an international body at the end of the month.

As PolitiFact noted yesterday, ICANN is simply tasked with ensuring "that the domain names we use for websites and emails are globally consistent" and while "the U.S. government is set to no longer have a contract to oversee certain internet-related duties having to do with all of us finding websites [these] tasks will continue to be handled through a California nonprofit that’s been in place since 1998" that will now be overseen by a multi-national advisory panel. 

Beck clearly did not understand anything about this, which is why he spent the entire opening segment of his radio program today warning that this is all part of a plot by George Soros to "grab control of the internet."
