"For the love of Pete, we are not the bad guys."
Glenn Beck skewered President Barack Obama on The Glenn Beck Radio Program Thursday for equating climate change to radical terrorism, saying the commander in chief is either "delusional" or the "dumbest son of a bitch on the planet."
"What the hell is wrong with you?" Beck asked. "If you actually believe that global warming is the biggest problem we face with terror all around the world, ... you, sir, are either delusional, or you're the dumbest son of the bitch on the planet. Which is it?"
Obama — along with Democratic presidential candidate Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — has taken heat from many on the right for declaring that there is "no greater threat to our planet" than climate change.
"In some ways, [climate change] is akin to the problem of terrorism and ISIL," the president said during a news conference at COP21, the U.N. climate change summit in Paris. "[T]hey’re very different threats, but they're both very serious. And we have to deal with both them. And I think the one common thread is the fact that we need the world with us in this effort."
Beck, continuing his criticism, said Obama should "screw global warming" and focus on other issues, spouting off a list of other topics he believes are more critical to address.
"[The U.S. has] an $18 trillion debt, nine of which is [Obama's], no real allies left that trust us, riots in our streets, riots in our university campuses, race relations worse than I've seen since the 1960s, and a distrust of our fellow Americans, unlike anything I've ever seen," Beck said.
Ultimately, Beck made the case that the Islamic State and radical Islamic terrorism are much greater threats, adding that "it is about Islam." Beck believes the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, the 2012 Benghazi consulate attack, the 2009 Fort Hood shooting and the Ahmed Mohamed clock incident were also "about Islam."
The radio host voiced frustrations with the way the Obama administration has handled past attacks and incidents, saying that he believes the president "looks for opportunities" to blame "white, religious or conservative America."
"The way the media and the administration look for every opportunity to blame things like this on white, religious, or conservative America is disgusting, irresponsible, un-American, and I, for one, am sick and tired of it," Beck concluded. "For the love of Pete, we are not the bad guys."
