Beautiful democratic revolution? The horrific Lara Logan story

Last week, Glenn previewed the 60 Minutes Interview that had Lara Logan speaking up for the first time about the sexual assault she experienced in the middle of the “democratic uprising” in Egypt. Today on radio, he examined her interview and hoped to draw attention to the facts that have been ignored by the MSM when it comes to the Middle East uprisings.

Glenn began the story by warning about potentially graphic and upsetting content, which we are reiterating now.

Glenn explained, “She is the CBS reporter that was raped in Tahrir Square and I want to warn you now that the content is graphic in her own words, here is what happened. “

Logan said, “They were saying let's take her pants off. And it's like suddenly before I even know what's happening, I feel hands grabbing my breasts, grabbing my crotch, grabbing me from behind. I mean, and it's not, you know, one person and then it stops. It's like one person and another person and another person. And I know Ray is right there and he's grabbing at me and screaming, Lara, hold onto me, hold onto me.”

Lara described how her clothing was ripped off and the men raped her with their hands. She held onto Ray, a former special forces soldier, for her life – until he was torn away.

“When I lost Ray, I thought that was the end. It was like all the adrenaline left my body. Because I knew in his face when he lost me, he thought I was going to die, that they were tearing my body in every direction at this point, tearing my muscles, and they were trying to tear off chunks of my scalp,” she said.

Logan said that she felt herself give up at one point while trying to fight them off, only to be shocked that she gave up so easily of her life and her children. “When I thought, I'm going to die here, and my next thought was, I can't believe I just, I just let them kill me, that that was as much fight as I had, that I just gave in and I gave up on my children so easily. How could you do that? “ she said.

“Did you hear what just happened? She gave up. And she asked herself, how did I die so quickly? How did I give up so quickly? Is that all the fight I had in me?” Glenn asked.

“She had no choice but to fight. But she knew who she was and she knew what she was fighting for. Her children. Her life. Courage only comes from when you are settled inside and you know what is true,” Glenn said.

“Why is this story not being told and championed from the highest levels? Why is this story an unknown for most Americans? How can people of good conscience say this was a peaceful revolution, that nothing bad is coming our way? Why don't we know this?” Glenn asked.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
