"The Prophet has been avenged!": 12 killed in Paris terror attack

Terrorists struck the offices of a French satirical newspaper Tuesday, leaving twelve people dead. The paper had published several cartoons on their front page mocking the Prophet Muhammad. Glenn opened the radio this morning addressing the news and calling for world leaders, including President Obama, to recognize the threat of radical Islam and not hide behind political correctness.

WATCH:

Glenn: There has been a terrorist attack in France this morning or this afternoon, Paris time. And I heard the news on TheBlaze radio this morning as I got up and Doc and Skip were talking about it and the first thing they said there was an attack, a shooting at a magazine or a newspaper that was a comedic newspaper. And I knew exactly what was happening. I could have turned the radio off and I could have told you it was a terrorist attack on this particular newspaper because they had made fun of the Prophet Muhammad. And that's exactly what happened. These attackers went in and they shot and killed 11 people. They had a rocket launcher. I don't know -- I thought France -- I didn't think you could have guns in France. But apparently you can have those evil ARs. Oh, no, those are banned, too? Huh. Well, I don't know how these guys got them. And a rocket launcher. And they went in and they shot up 11 people, killed them. And tried to terrorize this newspaper.

PAT: Reports are saying 12 now.

GLENN: The French president has called it an act of terror. Our president, Josh Earnest actually, our president's spokesperson has just come out and said, if this was indeed a terrorist attack, the guys were quoted as -- and it's on tape. The guys were quoted as screaming, the Prophet has been avenged. What do you think it is, White House? When the French are more clear than the United States of America. God help us all. I came in and I went to the library this morning. And I got a copy of the newspaper that has caused this attack. Now, this is -- this is the -- this is the newspaper in France that they make fun of everybody. This is kind of like "Mad Magazine," if you will. They make fun of absolutely everybody. And they made fun of the Prophet Muhammad and after the Prophet Muhammad, after they got threat on it, they said, oh, really? We're not afraid of you. And if you look through it in the back, and if you happen to be watching on cable, just warning -- I mean, they're graphic cartoons, but they're still graphic. And it shows all kinds of stuff of the prophet Muhammad. I mean, inside -- I mean, they went for it. They went for it. And this is why they attack. So we've got a religion that kills cartoonists. I think that's what's on God's mind, don't you think? I think if God were Ala, that's what he'd be saying. Let's go kill the cartoonist.

PAT: I'm skeptical.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah, somewhat skeptical.

GLENN: Because to me that's God's word. Let's go kill cartoonist.

STU: Pat's the contrarian around here.

GLENN: I know. We're with you. This is where we're headed. Political correctness will be the death of all of us. If our president cannot say that this was an act of terror, they came in -- what else would it be? Workplace violence? A newspaper in Paris, they come in. They're screaming, the Prophet has been avenged, they shoot and kill. What do you think that is? That was a terrorist activity to get you to be politically correct and shut up about the Prophet Muhammad. Now, I wonder what's going to happen to this newspaper. Would you work at the newspaper?

PAT: I -- well, I wouldn't have been involved in what they did in the first place. So that would have offended me --

GLENN: Explain that. Explain that.

PAT: It's really offensive stuff. I mean, it's really -- it's basically pornographic. They put the Prophet naked in various positions. It's really ugly stuff. Now, should 12 people have been killed, there's no question that's ridiculous and nobody should ever go to that -- to that length. But --

GLENN: I have news for you.

PAT: I wouldn't have been associated with the newspaper.

GLENN: I wouldn't have been associated with it either, but I will tell if you they would have done that to Jesus, I would have been just as offended --

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: And wouldn't have been involved in it. But I wouldn't have killed, burned down --

PAT: Of course not, absolutely not.

STU: There were no attacks from Christian groups or Jewish groups against this newspaper.

GLENN: They make fun of everybody. They make fun of everybody.

PAT: How many Mormon attacks have there been on the Broadway theater performing "Book of Mormon" last night.

STU: 11 last week.

PAT: If you subtract 11 or 12, yes. It's about that number.

STU: That's touring all around the country now.

GLENN: And you don't see them saying that. It's not --

PAT: It's not the way you exact.

GLENN: It's not civilized. It is not civilized. And not winning over any hearts. Who's --

STU: ISIS is not trying to win hearts. It's trying to cut them out.

GLENN: Actually, they are though. They are.

STU: They are doing some things, but their main goal is to do these things through intimidation.

GLENN: But what they do is they do what Hitler did. They point out the ills of society and they say the ills of society, the reason why society is so sick is because these people are mocking religion, they're not following the precepts of God and the laws of God, et cetera, et cetera, so we will take care of it for you. And then at the same time, they're embracing those people who do follow that religion. Don't necessarily agree -- you know, they wouldn't have thought of, hey, let's go kill those guys. But they turn a blind eye and they're like, you know what? They're right. Society is really sick and somebody has to do something. That's how -- that's how you always -- that's how they get you every time. Somebody's got to do something. That's why when our politicians say, we got to do something, no, no. We have to do the right thing. That's what terrorists say. Somebody's got to do something.

And so they go in and shoot people. What you do in a civilized society, you say, this is wrong. This is an outrage. This is really hurtful to the people who follow the Prophet Muhammad. And there's no place in society for that. However, they have a right to do [publish the cartoon]. I just have a right to speak out against it and I have a right to say I'm not going to buy that magazine and I think it's wrong and here's why, but to do so with love and respect and sometimes, yeah, turning over tables. Sometimes you might have some righteous indignation, but not shooting people. Not destroying property. There's -- that's -- that's the road to chaos, which, not surprisingly, is what hastens the return of their promised one. Chaos.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
