Nobody quite infuriates Glenn Beck like First Lady Michelle Obama, whom he has attacked in the past as “a monster” who is “nuts,” and his fury is generally unleashed whenever she dares to mention this nation’s struggle with racism, which he inevitably interprets as her showing nothing but contempt and hatred for America.
Discussions of race have played a key role in several of the commencement addresses that the first lady has delivered in recent weeks and Beck grew predictably outraged on his radio program today as he spelled out his theory that Barack and Michelle Obama hate America so much because they know that they never accomplished anything on their own and therefore feel like they are still being controlled by “the man.”
“I think honestly that some of their saying, ‘You can’t make it, you can’t make it’ is because they didn’t make it on their own,” Beck said. “They didn’t. They made it through George Soros and the Tides Foundation and everything else. They were picked up by people who said, ‘That one, that guy, that couple.’ They were shaped by the collective. He’s not a scrappy guy who made it on his own. He’s a scrappy guy that said the right things, did the right things.”
“Look at what he said he was going to do and what he’s done,” Beck continued. “He answers to a lot of people, so I think that they think they didn’t really make it on their own. They’re still working for the man.”
