President Obama Hates White People, Says TV Commentator

 

President Obama has shown that he is a person with "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture," according to Fox News commentator Glenn Beck, who made the comment on a guest appearance on "Fox & Friends."

Beck said that Obama's reaction to the case of Harvard's Henry Louis Gates Jr., who is black and was arrested by a white police officer who thought Gates was trying to break into his own home, proves Obama's racism. "He has a problem," Beck said.

Obama said he believed the officer acted stupidly in the case, and has since invited Gates and the officer to the White House to patch things over. Beck's statement was challenged on air by the host, and Fox News said Beck's opinion is his own.

"Beck's opinion is his own."
But will be believed and revered by his ignorant, stupid low-life lemming listeners. Glen beck and his ilk are responsible for the 'fringe' radicals in this country that shoot abortion doctors and church goers they 'deem' "liberal." The Glen Beck scum audience is a pathetic bunch of KKK minded nationalists who are an embarrassment to humans everywhere.

Beck's decision is his own, but opinions like his are all we show here at Fox News. Fair and Balanced. If you're a white, racist republican.

/sarcasm

Oh wait, no.. not /sarcasm, that's how it really is. Look at Beck and Bill O Reilly.

Faux news is getting ridiculously out of hand. And before anyone flames me, I realize this is Glen Beck's opinion, but have you ever noticed how everyone's "opinion" is the same over there?

There's my rant. I'm sure many will agree and disagree. So happy discussion!

  @ Lurker  
 
now who is being ignorant? YOU!!. Just becuase you listen or watch Beck doesnt make you a extreme right or KKK activist or whatever. Your comment is one of the most ignorant and misinformed comment I have ever read here.


I do not agree with Beck in this instance. Obama is not racist no where near racist. Beck isn't racist IMO either.

Beck does have some good info sometimes in my personal opinion he usually is a straight shooter but he has some moments like this where he is plain wrong.

I watch mainly Fox News but I also watch CNN becuase that really is the only way you can get fair and balanced news in this country is to watch both and form your own opinion. Fox goes right everyone else goes left.

I have watched Fox since the 9/11 attacks when I was in 9th grade and I have noticed they seem to be going far right recently which sucks becuase now instead of getting news from the right and the left and the extreme. I have to get it from the extreme right, left and extreme left. Time for a new news network to come into play somehow.

I do disagree with Obama he had no right to comment on the issue. he made himself look like a fool in this instance now we have to use taxpayer dollars to bring these 2 guys to the White House for a beer that will probaly cost 600 bucks for a case of it. Just like the hammer and toilet seat lol.

Come live in SW Missouri for a few years and then see if Lurker's comment is as far off as you claim.

Not saying it would change, but seriously... It would broaden your perspective of what his audience consists of. I'm sure not all of them are, some may have just left their TV on accidentally and fallen asleep.

I'm most sure there are quite a few out there who watch him that are crazy idiots. Who will do stupid things and say God made them do it or whatever. There are wackos everywhere even people who never heard of Beck will do those same idiotic things

A majority of the audience is not like that. I'm not people I know are not. I just feel its very wrong and ignorant of Lurker to classify the whole audience as he did.

My grandmother is a example of this she is an avid listener of Glen Beck she would never hurt a fly. She is a 86 year old woman who was a democrat for her whole adult life until this year when Obama came in. She cant stand the democrats for wehat they are doing. She just shakes her head of what the country has become. She dislikes Obama but absolutely hates Pelosi. When she used to pick up my mom and Aunt from school back in the day she knew Pelosi's parents and how she came to elementary school in a limo everyday. She told me today she has no clue how she turned out the way she has lol.

Like I said she wouldnt hurt a fly she has lived through segregation she is not racist in fact during secragation she had black friends, and she listens to Beck so I guess she is in the KKK well according to Lurket she is

your the kind of person I dont want to be with me. your the type who gives republicans and conservatives a bad name

Why are you personally attacking him you dont know if he hates conservatives you dont know if he is unemployed.\

Saying our President is racist and is a child molester is the worst thing you could say and you sir should be sent to Mexico.

The only things you wrote that I can agree with is Liberals are going to destroy America that we knew but so are most republicans. We need a whole new group of elected officials in this country a new party.

I can also agree that America is starting to wake up and change will be coming in 2010.

Do me a favor and never agree with me again and say you are behind me people like you are what lurker is talking about watching Beck. I do not want to be associated with people who talk like you what so ever

um idk im not sure i think a lot of people in america hate obama and r starting to see he sucks.

they may not b exactly like me bc i speal my mind loudly and most r afraid to speak up bc the liberal media has their friends and family brainwashed into believing in hope n waiting for change.

the only chnage barry is going to give us is the change in our pockets that we have left over when he leaves office

i just hope enough ppl relaize they voted worng in 2012 and get him the f*** out b4 he destroys us complettly

i find it odd that ppl who like glenn beck are stupid racists but obama can go to a church for 20 years, get married by a man, have his children baptized by the same man who is a open racist against white people

go to youtube and watch some of Jeremiah wrights "sermons" n then tell me he is not a racist

that is exactly how u dems are brainwashed by the media

Jeremiah wright is an open racist

he was obamas pastor for years

obama calls him a close personal friend and mentor

so does that make obama a racist??

by ur logic....YES

Alright, you--take your hate and your name-calling elsewhere. In case you didn't notice, there are rules and regulations to help foster intelligent discussion on ShortNews. Lurker is a well-respected long term member, who has a great history both as a channel cop and a poster on the site. Calling him anything less than honorable is uneducated and ill-advised, not to mention childish--especially because it's just because of a difference of opinion on political beliefs.

By the way, your name is terribly amusing to me. I believe you meant "learn English," which is in and of itself culturally intolerant, as there is no national language in the United States, as well as the fact that you are on a German website. You might try to learn English yourself, though. Your spelling and grammar are atrocious, and you cast shame upon the language itself.

@Lurker and NicPre: I tend to agree with you, on this one; however, Faux News has always been unfair and unbalanced.

"Just becuase you listen or watch Beck doesnt make you a extreme right or KKK activist or whatever." - willyshawker

I suppose, if you were caught coming out of a Gay Bar, you'd say that doesn't make you gay. And LernEngish is so fond of calling people "pole smokers", it guess that sorta imagery features a lot in his mind (at least on a deep, subconscious level).

I think Glen Beck has a deep-seated hatred for black people.

thats a crap comparision and you know it.

I guess my old grandmother is going to go join the KKK and go burn crosses like a bigot becuase she listens to Beck, even though she had black friends during segrecation even though she was a democrat her whole life until 9 months ago. Get Real.

You say you think Beck has a deep hatred for blacks well he might I dont know him therefore I cant judge him but it seems some of you have a deep hatred for him. Does that make you any better than him if what you say is true??????

For the record I'm not republican, conservative, democrat, independant becuase as far as I'm concerned they have all failed the American people over the past 24 years from Bush Sr all the way through to Obama.

It's going to take a real American to fix America.

Bush was a mistake and now Obama has been a bigger mistake. How long before we finally get it right and choose the right guy or gal, black or white, pink or purple. I dont give a flying shit what they look like as long as they fix the country not destroy it more.

I don't hate Obama. I dislike him. I don't agree with his policies. I think they are going to usher in socialisim, but we have been headed that way for the past 20 years he is just trying to make it go faster.

The Senate is starting to turn on him now, the very people who voted for him are as well.

He has majority and he can't get his healthcare plan passed what does that tell you. Even CNN has been going agaisnt him some lately but 6 months ago he could do no wrong.

for the person who said fox news has never been fair and balanced can you agree that neither has CNN or MSNBC. The only way to get true balance is to watch all the networks not just 1.

I dont want to get on a jihad about Fox News but if they are so bad why do the majority of Americans watch there programing? There has to be a reason. Most of America cant be bigots can they??

The black issue is kinda tough for me becuase I have black friends, I've dated black girls but at times I have seen alot of racisim towards me and racist speech by the black community and my friends parents or there other friends. So it goes both ways you cant deny that to me because I have seen it with my own eyes. I had a few of my black friends vote for Obama becuase he was black they didnt even agree with his stance on the issues!!!!! Isn't that racist in a way? Another guy I worked with said it's our turn now. I was like WOW. We got in a verbal fight nothing physical about it and he preceded to tell me I was holding him down and Obama would fix me and all us white folk becuase Jesse Jackson told him so!!!!!!!!! The catch they guy was the store manager, I was just a shift manager. Does that make sense???

I can see why some whites are racist above examples are reasons. Oh the people I told you about who voted for Obama becuase of him being black. Have said it was a mistake and they where wrong, and never again. I wonder why that is.

Like I said for all I care our President can be asian, black, white, hispanic, man, woman, hermaphrodite, who cares as long as they restore the country to being great again not whats happening now

 
  by: willyshawker     07/29/2009 09:44 AM     
  I seriously wonder...  
 
Why anybody takes things that Glenn Beck say seriously. He's so often hypocritical, incorrect, and outright lying that it boggles the mind that he has an actual audience in the US. I'm pretty sure the Palin crowd love him.

We have crazies in Canada but, fortunately, nobody pays attention to them.

"hats a crap comparision and you know it. [re: coming out of a gay bar]."
It's not a crap comparison; you jsut haven't given it enough thought and with a open mind.

It makes you a conservative. GOP, KKK, old-fashioned, right-wing are just labels we call ourselves to categorize and confuse others.

Your grandmother??! Bud, old-folks are one of the most conservative people on the planet. Just because some of the old people in Mississippi walk around on zimmer frames, bake cookies and sit on porches don't mean they never seen a burning cross or bodies of black people under bridges before. Just ask them about their views on capital punishment.

Time to reevaluate your beliefs.

how is telling someone to learn english culturally intolerable?

n the usa's national language is ENGLISH

just bc there r 200 other languages spoken here doesnt mean english is not the national language

It's a right-wing troll brigade!

Let me guess, Obama's bad right? Let's just throw another Republican in office in 2012! Yeah that will fix the problem!

You morons are always led around like sheep, oh the Dems are bad, lets vote Republican...oh the GOP is bad, lets vote Democrat. You know there are more than two choices on the ballot, right? I would hope people as 'insightful' as you would realize both parties serve the same Wall Street interests, only different factions, only to rape and pillage the American people. You are being manipulated. Turn off the crap TV news programs and do your own research rather than buying into what Tv persona suits you best. Put an independent in office if you want REAL change.

People who are simply "white and proud" do have that association with white supremacy, that's true. But for those white people looking to do more than just set themselves apart from darker people, many groups exist for:

German pride
Irish Pride
English Pride
Scandinavian Pride
Italian Pride
French Pride

  So  
 
Does he hate himself then? Or did he hate his mother and grandparents? Does he hate his children? He is half white and was raised by his white side of the family.

Did Beck and so many of the nation forget this? Every time someone calls him the first black president I sort of laugh because he went one above that. He passed the whole first black and went right to the first mixed president and that fact should be held up more. There are many mix-raced kids out there that don't feel they belong to either side because of pressures from each side of the family. Here is a man that shows them in the end it doesn't matter they are able to be both black and white and still able to make it to the "highest job" out there.

I was TOTALLY waiting for this! I knew it would be a matter of time before these people resorted to accusing the president of racism! Truthfully, I was anticipating Beck dropping the "N" bomb on the air in the middle of one of his tirades, but this just proves they are trying to project their own hatred on other people and then blow it all off as "politics".

I got your code word for you right here:

"This is the issue of this election. Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual *elite* in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves." -- Ronald Reagan

Conservatives have a tendency to ignore the fact that we vote for the people we send off to Washington to represent our interests back home. (And they have a tendency to talk as though the United States capital city is located somewhere near Fiji.)

Anyone taking the media and any associate thereof at face value, is a fool. Take it for what it is... propaganda. Educate yourselves, educate your children.

You'd be surprised at how well it works.
 
  by: Burnfactor77   07/30/2009 06:15 PM

for starters obama isn't a liberal... he's a right leaning centrist... bush was on the extreme right.

second of all "conservatives" have been responsible for a whooping 85% of the total national debt... mostly from starting wars.

and calling lurker (or anyone else for that matter) gay or a kiddy diddler is only going to get you banned for irratic hate speech.

and fox news is a well known republican biased network, they don't even trying to live up to "fair and balanced"

and i dont think anyone here will be taking your seriously, except those with a ban stick...lol

That's a really intelligent comment. I have friends who are gay and have had their 21st birthdays at gay bars. Am I supposed to not attend if they go to a gay bar because I am straight?

What's funny is that you go on to defend your comment by saying that willy should have had an open mind when he said that's a crap comparison. Sorry, but you're just a homophobic idiot if you think that your statement carries any likeness to this whole racists-watch-Beck argument.

And say: "Hey, I have a really shitty idea!" Democrats will then stand up, and say: "I know how to make it shittier!"

Such is life in Washington. :-P

  Can I just remind everyone  
 
not to feed the trolls unnecessarily? I know it's fun.

Speaking of trolls... what does everyone think of my brand new trollskin boots? I'm hoping to catch another one soon so I can make a matching belt and hat.

  opinions?  
 
I have not seen enough proof yet to determine is obama is racist or not.
Experience with the black culture has shown me that deep seated hatred of whites really is part of the black culture. I've seem that in action and being passed on from generation to generation.
He did go to a church with a racist preacher for 20 years..didn't get up and walk out did he?
He was also a community organizer. Being heavily pro black is the same as being anti-everyone-else.
And now the comment about the police officer before he even had all of the facts..btw there was more than one officer there and there was atleast one black officer there at the time if the arrest.
So yah its not looking good for obama.

As for that harvard professor goes, HE was the one being racist in my opinion because he saw a chance to get his face in the news and he jumped on it.
Doesn't anyone recognize that guys face?? He has been used as an "expert" on black history on several shows on the subject on the history channel. They always show him at an angle so you can't see that horrendous mole on his left check.
Being "Pro" any group means you discriminate against everyone else whether you want to believe that or not.
Racism is for everyone,not just Glen Beck.
I got a kick out of the way everyone on here "pre-judged" Beck on the facts that he is white, conservative and republican. You don't even know enough about him to know that he not a republican.
you "assume" he is racist based on his color...who are the real racists here.

  @datsuncaptain: you have a point  
 
I suppose comeing out of a gaybar doesn't mean you're gay. Maybe they just wanted a *fabulous* party. I'm not there to defend against exceptions to the rule.

I don't see how this makes me a homophone and/or a racist tho'.

Shhh. we don't want people to know that we are ALL in the KKK. Its that second document that you get along with your birth certificate.
Thats right Lurker, EVERY white person you see is in the KKK, every one of them.
And they ALL live just to screw over minority members. The second Wednesday night of every month they get together to discuss "how to keep the black man down". The current plan is to make them all paranoid schizophrenics, and I see its working rather well!
Good Day.

"I have not seen enough proof yet to determine is obama is racist or not."

And it's thinking like that which allows people to give guys like Beck a pass for outlandish accusations like these. But hey, guys like him know that if you slap together a few pieces of circumstantial evidence you can crow about it as long as people like you will listen. Intellectually, it's a mantra of, "If it feels good, believe it." I've not seen any proof that Glenn Beck isn't a pedophile either, but that doesn't mean that people shouldn't be offended when some yutz tosses it out there to ratchet up the rhetoric, nor that they shouldn't pre-judge (no, that doesn't need quotations) the speaker of the claim an idiot.

Also, I suppose you have evidence that Rev. Wright is racist -- because I have evidence that he is not. And what about being a community organizer is racist? You do know that most community organizers are white, don't you?

What the F is wrong with you 2? You didn't actually think your contradictary opinions were welcome here did you? Obama is a Saint. When he dies he will be taking St Peters place at the proverbial heavens gates - got it.

Now lets recap so you 2 don't stray from the path chosedn for you again.
"The Glen Beck scum audience is a pathetic bunch of KKK minded nationalists who are an embarrassment to humans everywhere." - this includes anyone who has EVER listened to him. Whether you were watching his channel purposely or just remote surfing - this applies to you (FYI - we use broad, sweeping strokes to cover everyone here.)

"Beck's decision is his own, but opinions like his are all we show here at Fox News. Fair and Balanced. If you're a white, racist republican.

/sarcasm

Oh wait, no.. not /sarcasm, that's how it really is. Look at Beck and Bill O Reilly.

Faux news is getting ridiculously out of hand. And before anyone flames me, I realize this is Glen Beck's opinion, but have you ever noticed how everyone's "opinion" is the same over there?" - like I said above - broad sweeping, strokes for a catch all.

/sarcasm

There is a double standard on racism in this country and IMO it's worse than Beck's comment. If Obama was a white man who had gone to "white" church with an outspoken white racist pastor he would never have gotten as far in his political career as he did. Now does my statement mean Obama is absolutely a racist? No, it does not. But I do think that sitting in that church for 20 years and listening to Mr. Wright something had to sink through and shape Obama's white opinion - whether it shows on the surface or not.

"You didn't actually think your contradictary opinions were welcome here did you?"

So we're not to discuss or rebut the opinions of others because that would be unwelcoming? I really don't think that's how it works.

Take the hook out of your mooth and swim back upstream.
"So we're not to discuss or rebut the opinions of others because that would be unwelcoming? I really don't think that's how it works." - Why yes we are. I know that. You know that. But, not everyone seems to know what you and I know. Ya know?

  Prove Rev. Wright is a racist!  
 
This is an open challenge to all those who continue to claim that Obama attended a "racist" church. I want prove that Rev. Wright is a racist. I think anyone who actually looks into that popular misconception will find that it's not true, but it's quite truthy.
 
  by: Ben_Reilly     08/03/2009 08:38 PM     
  Don't get dizzy now, Snow...  
 
...but I'm defending the right of those you're calling out to say what they want without being called out. It's also your right to call them out, but I'm just pointing it out, perhaps as you're just pointing it out.

Nice nick. Play a lot of pocket pool, do we?
I never said white people all belong to the KKK, but a large percentage of Beck's radio listeners probably do. I think you even made a racist assumption about me.
