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.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
