Media organizations stand up for Charlie Hebdo...until they don’t

Ever since the terrorist attacks on satirical magazine 'Charlie Hebdo', media organizations have been standing up saying 'We are Charlie' in solidarity. But as TheBlaze pointed out today, many are censoring the cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad that graces the cover of the magazine's latest edition. Glenn thinks it's time to be unafraid, and called for Americans to make a choice on radio.

"There are a lot of things that people, I think, are ignoring or choosing to ignore, and they can't be ignored any longer. Game on. It has begun. When I say that, I mean, for instance, Islamic terror. We have to decide, are we standing with Al-Jazeera and their point of view or are we standing with what we know to be true? There are a lot of great Muslims in the world and they don't want to kill, but there are a lot of Muslims in the world that have not left the at 9th Century. There has not been a reformation of Islam. Now, I think that there are those like Zuhdi Jasser, who is a reformer. There are those Muslims that want the reformation. They were not happy over in the Middle East, where people were living the Islamic laws, so they came over here. Unfortunately, those living the Islamic laws also came here and followed them. And they are trying to bring this dark religion, this dark style of this religion to the rest of the world. We don't want it. A lot of Muslims here don't want it. They want to practice their faith, but they don't want any of that," Glenn said.

"And we are not being clear. We are not being a protector of anything. When you have MSNBC come out and say that they're all up in arms about this, when you have the Hollywood people, all up in arms, all these journalists, all up in arms what happened to this newspaper in Paris but they have a right to say these things, and yada, yada, then they won't show the picture of the cover. They are holding that from you. Why? It's not because they find it offensive. It's because they are afraid. That's why. They are afraid. If you are afraid to say the truth, if you are afraid to show what is getting people killed because you might get killed, you don't have a spine, you are not standing up for anything. You are just doing a puppet show. There's a story up on The Blaze that shows -- what is it, five? Four ways the AP has hidden the cover of 'Charlie Hebdo'."

How is the AP hiding the cover? By covering it up with other papers...

In an emotional act of defiance, Charlie Hebdo resurrected its irreverent and often provocative newspaper, featuring a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad on the cover that drew immediate criticism and threats of more violence.

"They will show you the covers of Playboy, Penthouse.  They would never go to these lengths, never," Glenn said.

In case you were looking for the full thing, here it is:

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
