Katie Couric: "Seething Hatred"

Stu and Pat tore into Katie Couric’s recent claim that bigotry against Muslims was one of the biggest stories of 2010 and that a TV sitcom, ala The Cosby Show, was the solution.

“The bigotry against Muslims has been one of the most disturbing stories to surface this year.  Where did that surface?  Are we talking about the Ground Zero mosque?” Pat said, questioning whether or not opposition to the Islamic Center at Ground Zero equated to hatred of Muslims.

Stu added that most of the major news stories on the subject were really just fringe lunatics who were endlessly covered by reporters. Stu explained:

“And let's not forget, the one guy, the pastor who was going to supposedly burn the Koran and didn't is related to and has worked with the Westboro Baptist church. The people who are protesting military funerals.  This is not a mainstream Christian church by any means.  Yet, of course, we're told a Christian church is burning Korans.”

Stu continued by pointing out that while there were fringe lunatics dominating the news cycle, there have always been small but vocal people hating people who are in different. He said:

"To say that there was no one, you know, related to the Ground Zero mosque story who just hated Muslims and didn't want any mosques built anywhere?  Of course there were some.  There were a few and that's nasty and those people were anti-Muslim before the mosque, they're anti-Muslim before 2010.  There are those people who exist.  In the fact, they exist in every group against every group.  That's a -- again I don't -- what was it?  I don't write natural law?  I just live by it?  That is part of it.  There are idiots in every group hating every other group."

Couric’s solution? A Cosby style sitcom. Pat explained, “She goes on to say, we need a -- we need a Muslim version of The Cosby Show.  We need a Cosby show to do for Muslims what The Cosby Show did for African-Americans. “

Both hosts were extremely insulted by this comment, as it not only implied that people were stupid and needed to have a TV show to make people not hate people they already hate, but that the only reason people don’t hate African-Americans is because of The Cosby Show.

Pat joked, “We need a nightly sitcom or a weekly sitcom to help us understand that not all Muslims are bad.”

Stu added, “And also the reason we respect African-Americans is not because of The Cosby Show.  The guy had colorful sweaters.  We liked him.  It was a good show.  We got it.  But we like African-Americans because we like people.”

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
