Rapper Mos Def in force feeding propaganda

A rapper who goes by the name Yasiin Bey, formerly ‘Mos Def, apparently feels really bad for the terrorists down in Gitmo because he participated in a ‘human rights’ video blasting the practice of force-feeding. It’s a bizarre position for Mos Def to take considering the force-feeding method human rights groups are complaining about is actually saving the lives of terrorists. What would they prefer... starvation?

"There are currently 100 inmates in Guantanamo who are carrying out a hunger strike, according to the Guardian, about 45 prisoners are being force‑fed. Human rights organizations have condemned the practice," Glenn said on radio this morning.

To draw attention to the practice of force-feeding, Bey underwent to the process himself. In the video, which is at the end of this article, Bey has a plastic tube inserted through his nose and into his stomach and nutrients are pumped in. Bey appears to be in extreme discomfort during the procedure, and when the tube is dislodged he is unable to continue.

While reviewing the story, Glenn said that he didn't think that it was incumbent on America to force-feed anyone and if the prisoners wanted to starve themselves they should be allowed to.

"I don't want to starve anybody myself. I don't want to do that. I want to be the country that we all love and appreciate and the one that, you know, is feared by its enemies but should not be a country that is feared by all. But feared by its enemies," Glenn said, "And they want to starve themselves to death? Let them starve themselves to death."

Stu agreed, saying that Gitmo officials were providing the prisoners with food in their cell and it was up to them to eat it.

"Our requirement in this situation is to put some sort of food in their cell. If they don't eat it, then they don't eat it," Stu said.

Glenn said that we should not feel sorry for terrorists who were planning to kill Americans, and he mocked the idea that the rapper was trying to create sympathy for the prisoners with his video.

"Guys who were on the battlefield shooting us, guys who are admittedly despise the United States of America and would like to kill us all. Really? We're going to turn around because they starve themselves to death? It's an awful, horrible, horrible thing. It is not a humane way to kill someone, but we're not killing them; (the prisoners themselves) are," Glenn said.

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.
