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:

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

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.
