*Glenn Beck now says he should’ve never claimed that President Obama is “racist.”
The Fox News personality said he misspoke when he famously commented that 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 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.
“That is a direct opposite of what the gospel is talking about,” he said.
Beck has linked Obama to liberation theology in the past, particularly during his time as a commentator on CNN’s Headline News. He also discussed it last week on his Fox News program.
Obama was also linked with black liberation theology, which is a race-specific version of the belief, through his relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the controversial former pastor of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.
