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...
The cover of Charlie Hebdo newspapers is seen in a newsstand in Lille, northern France, Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015. 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.

And cropping it out of images...
Jean Paul Bierlein reads the new Charlie Hebdo newspapers next a newsstand in Nice, southeastern France, Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015. On front page, reading "all is forgiven". Charlie Hebdo's defiant issue is in print, with a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad on the cover and a double-page spread claiming that more turned out Sunday to back the satirical weekly "than for Mass." Twelve people died when two masked gunmen assaulted the newspaper's offices on Jan. 7, including much of the editorial staff and two police. (AP Photo/ Lionel Cironneau)

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