April 7, 2011 - As Obama scrambled to come up with a different slogan than the warm and fuzzy "Hope and Change", the media scrambles to tie Glenn Beck's business deal with the FNC announcement, to whip out the race card again, on anyone who watches the Fox News Channel. This is conained in the first Google search hit for Glenn Beck calls Obama a racist:

For those people who have not heard about Obama's remarks, let's have a refresher course in turnabout is fair play, shall we?
Barack Obama, on WIP Sports Radio, suggested the "typical white person" - much like his grandma - fears black men on the street, prompting a quick backpedal from his aides, who conceded the senator's words may give the wrong impression.
"The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't," Obama told WIP Sports Radio.
"But she is a typical white person who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, there's a reaction that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that's just the nature of race in our society."
What most people, Obama obviously included, do not understand is that the fact that his father was black has nothing to do with anyone's opposition to Obama's agenda.
If people spoke out about:
- supporting the Arizona immigration law
- against trying terroritst in military tribunals
- against going against the Constitution
- against bypassing Congress
- against cramming bills through by executive order
- supporting less spending and smaller government
Obama's supporters painted them as racists.
Obama, himself, painted all members of the Tea Party as racists.
Obama painted Glenn Beck as a troublemaker.
Obama appointed Van Jones (a 9/11 truther and a self-avowed Communist cop-killer advocate) and Glenn Beck exposed Van Jones for who he really was. The White House then carted Van Jones out of the White House in the wee hours of the morning on a weekend.
Glenn Beck got the ball rolling on the 9-12 Project and woke up many Americans, when he ran this video at the end of his show back in August of 2009:
The current POTUS believes that these things are troubling about us:
The 9 Principles
- America Is Good.
- I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
God â€œThe propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.â€ from George Washingtonâ€™s first Inaugural address.
- I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
Honesty â€œI hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.â€ George Washington
- The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
Marriage/Family â€œIt is in the love of oneâ€™s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.â€ Thomas Jefferson
- If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
Justice â€œI deem one of the essential principles of our governmentâ€¦ equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.â€ Thomas Jefferson
- I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness â€œEveryone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.â€ Thomas Jefferson
- I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
Charity â€œIt is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.â€ George Washington
- It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
On your right to disagree â€œIn a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.â€ George Washington
- The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Who works for whom? â€œI consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.â€ Thomas Jefferson
The 12 Values
- Hard Work
- Personal Responsibility
Particularly troubling and having nothing to do with Barack Obama's black father, is that all throughout the 9/12 project video, are moments when our US troops bravely served their county and did their duty honorably, to take bullets for our freedom.
Obama is the most anti-military president America has ever had, at least in my lifetime.
So, please do not accuse me of being a racist when I say that our president's skin color is not what troubles me about Barack Obama serving another four years.
I worry about America and its citizens, regardless of race, color, or religion.
