Amazing viral video shows cat saving boy from jaws of dog - but Stu isn’t buying it

It is no secret that Glenn is not a fan of cats. In fact, he absolutely hates them. But an amazing viral video featuring a cat literally saving a young boy from the jaws of an attacking dog just might have changed his opinion – ever so slightly – of the furry felines. While Stu found the video impressive, he was unwilling to believe the cat’s heroics were pure. On radio this morning, Stu concocted a conspiracy theory as to who was actually behind the video.

“Did you see the video that was out yesterday? It's insane. It makes me actually like cats a little bit more. Although, I think this is some sort of a ninja cat or a dog in a cat suit. But I've never seen a cat do this before,” Glenn said. “I didn't even click on it because I'm like, ‘I don't like cats. I don't care what this cat is doing.’ And then Pat has it on an endless loop over on his computer, and he's just fascinating by it today. There's a reason to be fascinated by it.”

TheBlaze.com’s article about the video has already been shared some 96,000 times, and the video has gained national attention. In case you haven’t seen the clip, below is the footage courtesy of YouTube:

The boy in the clip is 4-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo of Bakersfield, California. Though he ended up needing a few stiches in his leg, he remains none the worse for the wear. The feline that rushed to his rescue was the Triantafilo family’s cat Tara. In an interview with KERO-TV, Triantafilo described Tara as his “hero.”

While Glenn described the video as “amazing,” Stu took a slightly more cynical approach.

“There's something wrong with this,” Stu said. “You know what I'm thinking? I'm thinking publicity stunt for a cat food. It didn't actually happen. That's my prediction: A publicity stunt for cat food. They're going to come out [and say], ‘If you eat our food your cat will do this sort of stuff.’ Like one of those movie promos that leak out – you think it's real for a few days… I’m just throwing it out there. Luckily, I have absolutely no basis for it whatsoever.”

Ultimately, Glenn believes there is a good chance the video is real because cats are, in fact, smart animals – even if they do remind him of a certain 20th century progressive.

“Cats are not stupid. You know what cats are? Cats are liberal elites. They just think they are better than you,” Glenn concluded. “‘I'm a different species than you. I don't need you. And here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to rub up against your leg, and then you're going to go get me food, and you're going to give me the food I like. You're going to put it right here, and then I'm going to lap it up. I might even sit on your head later. And you're not going to do anything about it.’ It’s like Woodrow Wilson in fur.”

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
