NYT Op/Ed calls 9/11 "occasion for shame?"

The mainstream media has started to cover the 9/11 memorial services that dominated the news cycle over the weekend, and unfortunately many media outlets are starting to say that we shouldn't focus on remembrance like we have. For instance, Paul Krugman from the New York Times has written an opinion piece for the paper that claims 9/11 "has become an occasion for shame" while using his column to bash Bush, Giuliani, and others.

"Was anybody else kind of disgusted yesterday? I know I was. And then Paul Krugman comes out and he says 9/11 is an occasion for shame," Glenn said on radio this morning.

In his piece Krugman wrote, "The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it."

"Now, I'm reading this and I'm thinking if he's talking about how shameful it is on what the Muslims did or what the Palestinians did when they handed out cookies and cake on 9/11, yeah, I think that is deeply shameful. But that's not what Paul Krugman means," Glenn said.

Perhaps most disgustingly, Krugman claims, "Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror."

But as Stu points out, what right does Krugman have to judge the people who tried to step up and lead on that day?

"From all the heroic actions that Paul Krugman has taken in his life, he is in a position to criticize others for their heroic actions," Stu joked.

"This really, this really is what Michelle Obama talked about: We're going to change our history, we're going to change our language, we're going to change our traditions," Glenn said.

Krugman, of course, did not allow people to comment on his post - silencing anyone who may have the audacity to disagree with him.

"Paul Krugman, no matter what you do, no matter what you say, I will not hate you. I will love you, I will call you misguided, but I will love you and I will defend your right to speak. I will defend your right to be wrong time and time and time again. I will tell people, 'Don't listen to Paul Krugman; he's wrong,' time and time and time again. But I will not hate you. You will not make me angry. I will serve my fellow man. I will serve my fellow Americans. And by doing so by being that 9/12 individual, by serving my fellow man, I will make sure that America remains good so she will remain great," Glenn said.

It seems like the only person who should feel shame for their remembrance of 9/11 should be Paul Krugman.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
