Leading radio talk show host, best-selling author, and founder of The Blaze, Glenn Beck, called Hillary’s recent tirade against religious liberty and the First Amendment, “un-American” and “anti-Christian” during his popular radio show on Wednesday, even calling a certain splice of her statement, “the most outrageous line ever spoken by an American politician.”
As ThePolitiStick reported on April 24:
During a speech on Thursday at the “Women in the World” summit held in New York City, Hillary made clear that, if she is president, she would not uphold and defend the Constitution, as the presidential oath demands. Instead, she believes that the religious beliefs that people possess must be changed in order to support redefining the meaning of marriage to including homosexuals (emphasis mine) and perhaps other arrangements other than between one man and one woman:
“Yes, we’ve cut the maternal mortality rate in half, but far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice – not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will, and deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.“
Beck said the last sentence, if spoken just five years ago, “would have been enough to topple” and “ruin” any presidential candidate. However, now no one even blinks an eye.
Beck called Hillary Clinton’s statement even more outrageous than Obama’s 2008 pre-election statement, “We’re five days from fundamentally changing the United States of America.”
It was back in 2007, as Beck reminded his audience, that Hillary defended normal marriage, calling it not just a bond, “but a sacred bond between a man and a woman” and a “bedrock principle.”
Then Senator Hillary Clinton in 2007:
“I believe that marriage is not just a bond, but a sacred bond between a man and a woman. I have had occasion in my life to defend marriage, to stand up for marriage, to believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the Constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage or to the fundamental bedrock principle that it exists between a man and a woman going back into the mists of history.”
Beck called Hillary’s fundamental transformation “amazing’ and that Americans, under the next progressive regime, will no longer be allowed to have views that are contrary to what the government believes:
“This is amazing. What Hillary is saying here is, it’s no longer acceptable to believe something that the government doesn’t believe. For instance, Christians. I would assume this applies here. If the government says abortion is fine, you can no longer believe that it’s akin to murder. If that marriage is between a man and a woman, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. You don’t have the right — you have to change. Quote: You’ve got to change our religious beliefs.
Those two issues are paramount to all progressives. In fact, it’s safe to say, that to the American left, those are the two most important principles of all. It seems. Homosexuality and abortion. I don’t think so. But they seem to run on that all the time.
So your religious belief has to change. Deep-seated cultural codes. I’m quoting. Deep-seated cultural codes. Religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed, end quote. That’s not who we are.”
“That is just not who we are,” Beck continued. “It’s an un-American kind of idea. It’s anti-Christian. But Hillary is running in a country, don’t worry, Hillary you’re only running in a country that is 75 to 80 percent Christian. So what could possibly go wrong?” Beck asked.
“Nothing,” he answered himself. “Because nobody is paying attention to it,” he contended.
Just like in 2008.
