VIDEO: NYC man attacks two police officers with hatchet, NYPD not ruling out connections to radical Islam

On Thursday, a hatchet-wielding man attacked a group of NYPD officers in Queens, NY. He sent two to the hospital before he was shot and killed, and the law enforcement is looking into the attacker's connections to radical Islam. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the latest news and the disturbing pattern of President Obama and other senior officials ignoring the threat radical Islamists present to the United States. What will it take for our leaders to be humbled enough to face the evil realities staring them in the eye?

TheBlaze reported:

A hatchet-wielding man attacked a group of patrol officers in a busy commercial district in Queens on Thursday, injuring two before the other officers shot and killed him, New York City police said. A bystander was wounded in the gunfire.

The deceased suspect has been identified in multiple reports as 32-year-old Zale Thompson, an apparent Muslim who lived in Queens.

[...]

Asked if the attack could be related to terrorism, Bratton didn’t rule it out. He cited the fatal shooting of a solider in Canada earlier this week – what officials there have called a terror attack – as reason for concern.

TheBlaze has also found evidence of Thompson making racially charged comments made on social media, and 'For The Record' has reported on calls by radical Islamic leaders to attack soldiers and police officers.

During his radio show, Glenn pointed out the pattern of government officials to ignore the threat posed by Islamic extremism, drawing connections between the attack in NYC and the one in Canada earlier this week.

"New York P.D. is considering a possible terror connection in the hatchet attack done by a Muslim. But it's just a possible terrorist attack, because, you know, you see Catholics all the time running down the street with a hatchet trying to hack police officers to death," Glenn said. "You know, those Catholics shot a bunch of people up in Canada, the Parliament."

"I would like to agree with that. Islamic extremism does not exist. Islamic psychosis does. These people are psychotic. And it's time to start addressing it as such."

"Our children are actually going over and trying to join ISIS. Because they know we have built something that is a complete and total fraud and we won't admit it yet ourselves. What we have built is an abomination. This is not what our founders intended and this has been going on for a very long time. Our founders intended a place where men could be free and they would self-regulate. And they would come together under different ways of worshiping God, but they would worship God and the best way they could worship God was to serve their fellow man."

"We don't know what's up and down anymore. How does the president survive? Saying to us Muslim terrorism, you're crazy. Let me go send -- let me go send my apology squad out to the mosque that raised up these extremists that beheaded people. Did he send anybody to the families? Did he stand with the families? Was he outraged at all? Is he outraged at the killing in Canada? Did you hear him? Was he outraged by this, saying this has got to stop? Has he been outraged by the Muslim that went and tried to kill two police officers with a hatchet? Is he outraged? Was he outraged by what happened at Fort Hood?"

"Do you think this guy with a hatchet was just a lone Wolf?  How many wolves are alone before they start to mount into a pack?" Glenn asked.

As he read the news, Glenn recalled a meeting he had with a soldier at a book signing for Dana Loesch last night. The soldier told him that when he came back from serving last year, he developed a real issue with anger. He thanked Glenn for helping him get over his anger, but his story is one that many Americans can identify with.

"This soldier came up to me and probably the most meaningful anyone has said to me in quite some time. He said I was in the army and I fought in Iraq. I came home last year. I didn't know what it was about. And then I saw what's happening. And I was so angry. I had real issues with anger. And I've listened to you now. And you helped me get past my anger. And I can't thank you enough. If we don't help each other get past our anger, we're in trouble. Because everybody -- everybody has a reason to be angry."

"Forget about how does this president survive. How do we survive? How do we survive at this pace another two years?"

 

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
