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.”

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
