HORROR: Mom wants right to "euthanize" her disabled children

On a recent episode of Dr. Phil, a mom with two handicapped kids (kids that are now adults) describes why she wants the right to euthanize her severely-disabled children. Glenn explains that when the children were young she had them put in a home, and visits them a few times a month, but now, she wants to “put them out of their misery.”

“Janet and Jeffrey were able to make a decision about life, they would opt for suicide. There have been times when I thought of doing something myself, but the saying "Walk in another man's moccasins," unless you've been there, don't judge,” the mother said when describing the situation about her children on Dr. Phil.

“Now, how does she know that, first of all?” Pat asked. “How do you know that? If they were able to make a decision, they would opt for suicide? You know that for a fact? You know what they're feeling?”

“We’re opting for suicide. That’s not a reasonable decision,” Glenn added. “You don’t even let adults make that decision. Suicide is not an option.”

In this video from the Dr. Phil episode the mom, Annette, explains why she only visits her children two times a month. In the video she compares her children to newborn babies – an odd description in an argument to ‘put them down.’

A mother of seven, three of which are disabled, vehemently disagreed with the Annette’s desire to kill her children. She, like Glenn, was disgusted at the thought of what was being debated in this show. “I'm sorry that those children are the way they are. I'm sorry that my child might be that way someday. I will not euthanize my child because it's too much trouble for me. I will not euthanize my child because the government doesn't want to pay for it,” she said.

You can see the exchange in the clip below:

Frustrated by the way the argument is being positioned, Glenn brought up a good question: Why are we calling this euthanizaing? “Stop using the word "euthanize." Stop using the word "euthanize." We don't even use that word with animals. We put them down. And that's what she's talking about, putting them down. Killing them. Why do we have to use "euthanize"? If it's okay to do, what you are doing is killing them.”

“Yeah, this is just another pro-choice effort,” Stu replied. “Instead of calling it abortion, let's call it choice.”

Glenn brought up the point that we don’t call killing “euthanize” on death row, we call it putting someone to death. The show is advocating injections, so why the language change?

After the mother of seven spoke up and defended the lives of Annette’s children, Attorney Geoffrey Fieger, who gained notoriety for his outspoken defense of the late assisted suicide advocate, Dr. Jack Kevorkian, joined the debate.

“You know we're not disagreeing here. The only question is nobody should ever make you do something you don't believe in, and the same with Annette. Government shouldn't make her do that,” he said.

This statement caused a disturbing roar of applause from Dr. Phil’s studio audience. “The most disturbing part of the exchange is the reaction of the audience. Now, you want to know where our country is headed, I want you to listen to this. And not only listen to Dr. Phil but listen to the audience,” Glenn said.

Glenn warned listeners that if you look back at history, the reaction of this audience to what they are witnessing is extremely disturbing. At the beginning of the show, Glenn explains that Dr. Phil polled the audience members to see who agreed and who disagreed – only three disagreed with the mother’s desires.

“Almost everybody in the audience, but again, you know, you hate to bring up the Nazi references but it’s a fact,” Pat added. “This is how it started in Germany.”

He explained that “compassion” was supposedly the excuse in Germany when they started killing people, and it began with the handicapped, not the Jews. When all was said and done nearly 300,000 handicapped people had been killed. It ended up coming down to contribution to society.

The comments being made to support the arguments made by this woman about her disabled children are a red flag if you pay attention to history. Glenn noted both George Bernard Shaw and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger as examples of what this kind of thought can lead to. It is a slippery slope.

Glenn explained that the day after he saw this segment on Dr. Phil there was a story of this seven year old girl from Pennsylvania who has no hands, and just won the penmanship award. Her name is Annie Clark, and on Friday, she, along with an audience of about fifty parents of special needs children, will join Glenn on GBTV at 5pm ET for a show you do not want to miss.

A restaurant owner in Southwest Harbor, Maine, has taken to sedating her lobsters with marijuana to help ease the pain of being being boiled alive — a popular way of cooking the crustaceans.

The owner of Charlotte's Legendary Lobster Pound, Charlotte Gill, said she feels bad for the lobsters she serves in her restaurant, noting, "there is no exit strategy" for them.

"She wants to get the lobsters baked before they're boiled," Glenn said on Thursday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program."

He wondered if marijuana actually made the lobsters more paranoid, recalling an "all-time classic" comic involving a paranoid lobster and a swipe at Glenn himself, a self-described "optimistic catastrophist."

Of course Spooky Dude is connected to Kavanaugh hit job

You know it's kind of crazy how blatantly transparent Democrats have been during the Kavanaugh hearings. I'm definitely not saying this in any kind of positive light. I'm just amazed at how the left is giving the entire country a direct insiders look on how they go about their business. I mean, this entire confirmation charade has got everything… from "mic checking" to shout down your opponents, to political grandstanding to gain favor for future elections, to shady plots involving big money donors advancing progressive agendas. This is truly a look inside the Left's political playbook. It's open for everyone to see, and they don't even really appear to give a crap to try and hide it.

RELATED: Well that escalated quickly

Take for instance the Ford sexual assault allegation. Grassley has given Ford until tomorrow to commit to a testimony that would be conducted in the next 72 hours. He wants it complete by Monday so they can move on with a committee vote. But Ford and her lawyer are delaying. They want the FBI to do an investigation, but procedurally that's not how this works. Ford's lawyer, Debra Katz, knows this. So why delay?

Well, it's pretty obvious. Again, the Left isn't trying to hide what they're doing here. Democrats want this delayed as close to the November midterms as possible. They study history just like anyone else does. When this nearly identical scenario happened with Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill back in 1991, it triggered what is now known as "The Year of the Woman" in the 1992 elections. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, was a product of that Democrat surge.

But the Ford accusation reveals a lot more. Back in August, a large group of Left-leaning groups co-signed a letter to both Senator Feinstein and Senator Grassley demanding Kavanaugh records. It was basically the same narrative that Cory Booker and Kamala Harris were using during the opening day of the confirmation hearing. One of the groups that co-signed the letter was called the Project on Government Oversight, or POGO. The vice chair of POGO is a woman named Debra Katz - YES - the same Debra Katz that is now the lawyer for Kavanaugh's accuser. Don't worry, this gets even more ridiculous. POGO is directly funded by - guess who - George Soros and the Open Society Foundation.

We're seeing a play-by-play political hit job live as it all plays out.

Soros' fingerprints are all over this. In June the Daily Caller reported that a group called Demand Justice had launched an effort to try and stop Kavanaugh's confirmation. They allocated five million to the project. Wanna take a guess where they get their money? Demand Justice gets their funding from something called the Sixteen Thirty Fund, and their funds come directly from George Soros and the Open Society Policy Center. They've given over two million in recent years.

We're seeing a play-by-play political hit job live as it all plays out. If you thought Netflix's House of Cards was fiction… I give you the Kavanaugh hearings.

Jeremy Boreing, COO at the Daily Wire and executive producer of "The Ben Shapiro Show," joined Glenn Beck on Tuesday to weigh in on the ongoing debate about whether the government should regulate digital media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google.

In reference to leaked documents that revealed a "secret meeting that happened with Media Matters and their strategic plan," Glenn asked Boreing for his thoughts on "raw data" sharing (by social media platforms) and the suppression of conservative voices in digital media.

Boreing noted that Cambridge Analytica is under fire for using techniques, supplied to them by Facebook, to collect the same data sets that Media Matters has apparently collected.

"This is a pretty classic example of the left not being happy when the right does the same things that they are doing," he said.

"How do [conservative outlets] survive if you have Media Matters guiding Facebook and Twitter and Google on who to suppress and who not to?" Glenn asked.

"Unfortunately, I think that there's going to be a certain amount of lawfare that has to become a part of the tool belt of the right," Boreing said. "But specifically with these social media platforms, because of the Communications Decency Act in section 230, they sought protection from the government with being held liable in certain instances because they said 'we're not publishers, we're platforms.'"

"Now, they're trying to have it the other way. They're trying to say, 'No, we can act as publishers. We can determine what kind of opinions we want stated on our networks,'" he added.

Dennis Prager, syndicated radio host and founder of PragerU, joined Glenn on Tuesday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to weigh in on the volatile political climate in America today.

"I think that the crisis in America is the greatest in my lifetime and the greatest since the actual Civil War," Prager said.

"I never engage in hyperbole," he explained. "I may, like anyone, be wrong. But I took a vow 35 years ago when I started radio, that … I [would] try to tell the truth. And I've never been accused of a lie, I'm proud to tell you. I've been called every word, but not liar. And I took another vow, don't even exaggerate, because it works for about a year. But gradually people understand, 'He doesn't really mean that. He's just overstating the case. So, I am not overstating when I say we are in a civil war in the United States."

He noted the tremendous "gap between the left and the rest of the country" and gave an example of the now "normative" practice of not calling children "boys or girls" in schools because it's considered wrong to impose a gender identity.

"That is sick to the point of child abuse," he said. "We are watching crazy people take our country."
