These are the cartoons that led to the terrorist attacks in France

Glenn spent a lot of time on radio this morning talking about the terrorists attacks in France and the importance of free speech, even when it's uncomfortable speech. While he strongly disagreed with the content of the cartoons that provoked a terror attack resulting in the death of 12 people, he believed that you have a right mock religious figures. It might be offensive, it might even be despicable, it doesn't mean it should be censored. To illustrate his point, he showed the front page of the magazine on the radio show.

"This is quite possibly the beginning of some really nasty stuff," Glenn said of the attacks. "I think this stuff is going to increase in frequency, and I think it's sad. AP has proven themselves now to be liars and dishonest and disingenuous. Associated Press has said they're not going to show the Islamic cartoon, but they did show Piss Christ."

"Yeah, even though they claim to have a long-standing policy for years that we refrain from moving deliberately from provocative images," Pat said.

Editor's note: The AP has since removed the photos following a story from 'The Washington Examiner'.

"I want to make this clear," Glenn said. "I think the cartoons that this newspaper printed are not funny. You know, in the 'MAD Magazine' sort of way, they're just not funny. And they are offensive. They are offensive to -- to anybody. I mean, you know, we all have to understand it. People hold things sacred. There are such a thing as things that should be held sacred. And what people believe and hold in sacred nature, we should not mock," Glenn said. "However, you can mock."

Glenn pointed out that comedians have had their livelihoods attacked because of satire, pointing out that Bill Maher lost his job at ABC because of a joke about Muslims. It's certainly not of the same scale, but a similar issue.

"Comedians make horrible comments, stupid jokes, we always stand with them because you should always have the right to go out there even when it offends your side and make these comments," Stu said.

"We think that mocking the sacred is wrong.  But you have a right to do it.  We don't want to do it, but it is -- it is your right to do it. I personally think it was wrong for of the newspaper to print these things.  But I'm conflicted because they were only printing them, supposedly, because people said, you can't post them.   And I don't want to live in a society where one segment of the population scares others into silence," Glenn said.

"Today I am Charlie.  We are all Charlie today.  That's what we should be doing, even though I find this reprehensible and offensive," Glenn said.

'Charlie Hebdo' has published cartoons mocking many religious figures, not just the Prophet Muḥammad.

To illustrate his point, Glenn showed the offensive cartoons. You can see them in the video below:

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
