Conservative commentator Glenn Beck says he shouldn’t have called President Obama a ‘racist.’
Glenn Beck has stepped back from his claim that President Obama is “racist.”
The bombastic Fox News commentator now says he misspoke when he said the Commander-in-Chief had a “deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”
“It shouldn’t have been said,” the 46-year-old former disc jockey said on Fox News Sunday. “I have a big fat mouth sometimes and I say things, and that’s not the way people should behave. And it was not accurate.”

What does Beck wish he had said? He’s not racist, he’s just a “Marxist.”
“He is a guy who understands the world through liberation theology,” Beck told Chris Wallace.
Founded in Latin America during the 1950s and based in Christian beliefs, “liberation theology” involves the belief that the poor need to be freed from economic, political or social injustice.
Calling the theology “Marxism disguised as religion,” Beck argued it goes against what most Christians believe.
