Terry Jones denies role in beheadings (while doing a great Foghorn Leghorn impersonation)

What’s the logical thing to do when one lone pastor decides to burn the Koran? Enact a law, of course. In response to Terry Jones’s burning of the Koran – which has prompted a violent response from Muslim extremists – Harry Reid has promised to investigate a new law. Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.

“It's stupid to burn a Koran or a flag, but you should be able to do it if you're that much of an idiot,” Stu said on Reid’s possible legislations.

Stu said that Glenn has been against these types of laws in the past, and opposes an amendment that would make it illegal to burn the flag.

“I think free speech goes beyond a cute little idea,” Glenn said.

“You want to burn my religious scriptures and all of those, you go ahead and burn them. I'm going to pray for you. I'm going to think that you are an idiot. I am going to think that that's what Hitler did. Isn't that weird? I'm going to think all of those things, but I'm going to ask you to stop, but I'm not going to try to pass an amendment that you can't be an idiot in America,” Glenn said.

“So, really, burning books, not a good idea. Can you do it? Yes. Should you? Hum, no, not really. But here's Terry Jones on not feeling responsible for the beheadings,” he said.

“We do not feel responsible, no,” Jones (who sounds suspiciously like Foghorn Leghorn) said. “ We feel more that the Muslims and the radical Islam use that as an excuse. If they did not have us an an excuse, they would use a different excuse.”

“It's stupid to antagonize, obviously,” Stu said. “Although I will say, you know, you cannot -- I mean, it's there -- people who kill people are the people responsible.”

“We have Time magazine's Bobby Ghosh explaining why burning the Koran is so much worse than burning the Bible.,” Glenn said.

Pat played the audio from Gosh:

“The thing to keep in mind here is that the Koran to Muslims, it's not the same as the Bible to Christians. The Bible is a book written by men. It's acknowledged by Christians that it is written by men. It's the story of Jesus, but the Koran, if you're a believer, if you're Muslim, the Koran is directly the word of God. It's transcribed directly as the word of God. It's sacred in a way that is hard to understand if you're not Muslim. So, the act of burning the Koran is much more, potentially much, much more inflammatory than if you burn a Bible.

Glenn and Pat wondered how it was different for God to speak to men like Isaiah who would then translate the word of God for the Bible and when Allah would speak to Mohammed and have him write down what was said.

Regardless of whether or not it’s worse to burn a Koran over the Bible, the real question that emerged out of the discussion of who was smarter: Koran-burning Terry Jones or cartoon chicken Foghorn Leghorn?

“Leghorn seems intellectually superior, I would say,” Stu said.

“Well, I never saw Foghorn Leghorn light a Koran or fire,” Glenn said.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
