Rep. Steve King: ISIS has declared war on our culture

Rep. Steve King joined Glenn on radio Wednesday to discuss the shooting in Texas. During the interview, Rep. King expressed his support for the 'Draw Muhammad' event and its organizers, as well as the danger radical Islam clearly poses to the United States and the West.

"It's a freedom of speech issue. It's something that Pam Geller constantly billed this as a freedom of speech issue. She spoke about that in the weeks building up to that. She spoke about that in the minutes and the aftermath," Rep. King said.

"And I had the privilege to host Geert Wilders at four different events in Washington, DC, just last week, starting Wednesday and also carrying into Thursday. We stood on the triangle where you and I have stood together in the past also, out in the open, knowing that he's one of the top ten people that Islamists would like to kill in the world. He's been under guard for ten years. Living as a prisoner with a circle of guards. And he constantly stood there and said, 'I'm jealous. I'm jealous of the United States. You have the first amendment. You have the freedom of speech. We do not in the Netherlands and in many of the European countries.'"

"And he spoke out very clearly in favor of western civilization. He spoke out and said, 'you have to speak the truth all the time. The only way is to speak the truth all the time.' And that's freedom of speech. And we know that freedom of speech doesn't need protection if it doesn't offend somebody. It's only when it offends somebody that it needs constitutional protection," Rep. King said.

Glenn and Rep. King both agreed that protecting freedom of speech from political correctness is critical to defeat terrorism.

"We would joke about it because everybody said that. You're not hearing that now. You don't hear people say, if you don't do that, contest, if you don't defend this speech, the terrorists win," Glenn said. "We've started to kowtow."

"I see it. Feel it. Sense it. And I know you do too. And immediately the criticism against Pam and Geert for being there to stand up for freedom of speech the way they did. This is not only freedom of speech, it's also freedom of religion. And the nexus of freedom of speech and religion that stand together, and they're wrapped up in the first amendment I think by design by our Founding Fathers comes into conflict with cultural relativism and hate crimes. And the PC, politically correct, police language. That's the clash that we had that was brought to a head in Garland, Texas, Sunday night," Rep. King said.

"ISIS has declared war. Not just ISIS. All of radical Islam has declared war on our culture and our civilization," Rep. King added.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
