Man kills cousin’s family because they had ‘too much’

A heinous murder took place in Brooklyn, New York Saturday night after an illegal Chinese immigrant became so enraged he allegedly slaughtered his cousin’s wife and four young children with a meat cleaver. The reason? A police source told the New York Post the man confessed to committing the crime because he was jealous of the family’s lifestyle.

The Post reports:

An illegal Chinese immigrant, bitter over his failure to achieve the American dream, repaid his cousin’s kindness by butchering the man’s wife and four young children, cops said Sunday.

Mingdong Chen, 25, showed no remorse when he confessed to slaughtering the family that allowed him to live in their Brooklyn apartment and admitted that he committed the atrocity because he envied their way of life, a police source told The Post.

“The family had too much,” the source quoted Chen as saying.

“He meant that the family had better income and a better lifestyle than him . . . He was jealous and just killed them.”

“Now, let me show you where our society is going,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “If you understand going in that, you know, life is a choice and life isn't fair, but that's not what our society is teaching. The family had ‘too much,’ a police source told the Post… The investigation is ongoing, but apparently he showed no remorse. He was described by people as lazy, and he wanted their stuff.”

Chen has been described by those who know him as lazy and lacking work ethic, but Glenn pointed out that narrative is missing from most news reports of this story.

“You'll notice that nowhere here is any kind of comment… Here we have an Administration – let's not blame it on the Administration. The entire society, our entire society is built on ‘They have it, you don't, get ‘em,’” Glenn explained. “Is the President pushing this? Or is the President just a reflection of us? I would say the President is, in many ways, a reflection of us because we reelected him. So he is a reflection of us. So it's not his fault."

"Our society has become a place where if you can't make it yourself, take it from someone else," he continued. "And nary a comment or a word about this – not one. Here's a family hacked to death and beaten to death because they were rich. They had stuff that the other guy didn't have and he didn't think it was fair. I find that amazing, just amazing.”

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.
