READ: Hateful letter sent to family with autistic child

Yesterday, TheBlaze reported a “shocking hate-filled letter” was left in the mailbox of a family with an autistic child by a neighbor who felt the child was an “idiot” and “nuisance.”

According to TheBlaze:

A shocking hate-filled letter attacking a Canadian family’s autistic child has sparked outrage in an Ontario community and beyond. The letter, sent by a cowardly anonymous neighbor, accuses the “idiot” autistic child of being a “nuisance” because of the noises he makes while playing outside.

“The world is upside down. And the good news is it's not just America,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Let me give you this from Canada. There was a woman who apparently just doesn't like her neighbor. Let me be real specific: Doesn't like her neighbor's child. Let me be more specific: The neighbor's child because they're handicapped.”

The letter, which could be described as malicious at best, begs Karla Begley, the mother of the severely autistic 13-year-old, to move out of the neighborhood.

“You selfishly put your kid outside everyday and let him be nothing but a nuisance and a problem to everyone else with that noise polluting whaling he constantly makes!!!” the letter reads. “That noise he makes when he is outside is DREADFUL!!!!!!!!!! It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!!!”

The hate continued:

He is a hindrance to everyone and will always be that way!!!!! Who the hell is going to care for him?????? No employer will hire him, no normal girl is going to marry/love him and you are not going to live forever!! Personally, they should take whatever non retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science. What the hell else good is he to anyone!!! You had a retarded kid, deal with it…properly!!!!! What right do you have to do this to hard working people!!!!!!!! I HATE people like you who believe, just because you have a special needs kid, you are entitled to special treatment!!! GOD!!!!!!

Ultimately, the neighbor suggests Begley “do the right thing and move or euthanize him.”

“Welcome to the City of Ontario, Canada. That's not an American problem,” Glenn said. “We're all outraged by this, right? But if you were a neighbor, are you going to say anything? If you're the parent, what are you going to do… First response is, ‘I don't want to live in that neighborhood. I just move.’ No. I don't think so. Haven't we given up enough ground?”

Pat and Stu struggled to decide what they would do if faced with this situation. This story has gained international attention because the mother who received the letter posted it on social media, and Stu believed this was probably the most effective thing to do.

“Isn't what they did a great way to advance this,” Stu asked. “I mean, they put it online, now thousands of people have shared it. People, millions of people are hearing about it right now… I mean, how long is it going to be until they dig up who this person actually is and they really get shamed for it? People are going to be looking around in their neighborhood. Any suspect that they have, they are going to look through all their Facebook comments, look for comments about, you know, some kid in the neighborhood they don't like. I mean, you can't do this stuff anymore, and that's probably a good thing.”

Glenn had a slightly different approach. He recently shared that he has placed a moratorium on the use of electronic devices in his house primarily because he felt his family was becoming desensitized to reality. Glenn said he would hold a neighborhood meeting to demand accountability.

“I have a neighborhood meeting. I hold a neighborhood meeting. I put that letter in everyone's mailbox and say I want a neighborhood meeting, even if it didn't come to me,” Glenn said. “It's time to hash this out. Who are we? I mean, look at that. Look at that… Look at what we've planted. Now, these seeds have been planted all around the world. This is in Canada. What are they talking about? Euthanize your kid. Euthanize your handicapped kid. We used to have real feelings for each other, real feelings.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

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.
