German company markets fake hymens for Muslim girls

Thursday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn reported a disturbing story about a German company that manufactures fake hymens so brides can prove their virginity. The product's primary market is young Muslim women. Why? So they don't risk being killed on their wedding night.

One testimonials on the company's website says, "If your product didn't exist, I wouldn't exist now either."

"When are we going to say we're superior?" Glenn asked. "I'm sorry, but we have a superior culture. I'm sorry. I don't have my in-laws inspect my sheets the next day. And if they don't find what they're looking for, they don't kill my new bride."

Listen to the segment from the program:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN:  When is somebody going to speak out?  When is somebody going to say our culture is superior, period?

A German company has been manufacturing now fake hymens to a growing market of mostly Muslim women who must prove their virginity on their wedding night.

A company called Virginia Care sells packages containing two ultra thin membranes to be inserted by the woman herself which contain fake blood.

STU:  You sure it's called Virginia Care?

GLENN:  Yes.

STU:  Okay.  Just wanted to make sure you read that right.

GLENN:  Virginia Care.  Yes, I did.

The blood is secreted when the membrane is pierced, which enables the women to, quote, trick their husband and their in-laws.  The website advertises --

PAT:  Do they all gather around?

GLENN:  Listen.  Listen.  The website advertises with artificial hymen from Virginia Care, you will be certainly able to show the bloodstains on your wedding night, exclamation point.  That's how they're advertising it.

The company delivers all over the world, but its main clientele is Muslim women now living in Europe.  Many Muslims in conservative families face social exclusion or even death in so-called honor killings if they're not found to be virgins on their wedding night or if blood is not found after their wedding night.  The testimonials on the website, quote, if your product didn't exist, I wouldn't exist now either, end quote.

PAT:  Jeez.

GLENN:  For this reason, they boast on its website that it has completely discreet shipping and can be ordered at any pharmacy.  A fake hymen costs $54, in contrast to the $2,600 of surgically reconstruction.  The two different models of the device is sold.  One secretes a bright red fluid in order to convince the husband, while another secretes red, brown fluid, intended to convince the in-laws who inspect the sheets the following day.

The company says it has been well designed and cannot slip out during sex.  It provides natural seeming result with a trace of blood mixed with body fluids.  A device on the website also says you must act like a virgin.  Quote, the woman needs to show pain because this is exactly what the man expects from a woman having sex for the first time.  End quote.

STU:  Hmm.

GLENN:  That's unbelievable.  When are we going to say we're superior?  I'm sorry.  But we have a superior culture.  I'm sorry.  I don't have my in-laws inspect my sheets the next day.  And if they don't find what they're looking for, they don't kill my new bride.

STU:  Perhaps a bigger problem is you go through all that trouble to get the fake hymen and then someone trips, falls in, and you have to do it all over again.  Ugh, so frustrating.


GLENN:  I don't --


PAT:  Oh, man.  Wow.

GLENN:  And you know what's really bad is how many -- the men -- the men haven't changed.  The men haven't changed.  They're worse.  The men over in Europe now, they're raping these women because it is their right to rape the infidel.  It's their right to rape the infidel.  There's no brakes on the men as well.  In our society, it's a two-way street.  You both have to contain yourself.  You both have some responsibility.  Not over with the Muslim men.  When are we going to say something?  How far are we going to let this go before we snap out of our delusional thinking?

PAT:  And, you know, we got this story now that 100,000 of the Syrian refugees are already here.  Did you see that story?  So, I mean, they're already among us with a lot who probably have that mentality --

GLENN:  Oh, I'm sure they do.  I'm sure they do.

PAT:  Some of them may be from -- you know, of ISIS sympathy.

GLENN:  The problem is, they don't to have been terrorists.  They can just be sympathizers.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They can just turn their face away. What was the problem with Germany? There was only a third of the people that were with the Nazis. Only a third of the people. The rest of them turned their face away. And why we think that a whole group of people. A religion can't go bad when a whole country went bad -- only a third of the Germans were Nazis. But you'll notice that the German people did nothing to stop it. And so the entire country rotted and tried to kill the rest of the world. Why we deny that this could happen with the Muslim culture, when we've already seen it in a white Aryan culture, how can we possibly deny that this could happen? What the hell is wrong with us, America? Back in just a second.

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.

The Hong Kong protesters flocking to the streets in opposition to the Chinese government have a new symbol to display their defiance: the Stars and Stripes. Upset over the looming threat to their freedom, the American flag symbolizes everything they cherish and are fighting to preserve.

But it seems our president isn't returning the love.

Trump recently doubled down on the United States' indifference to the conflict, after initially commenting that whatever happens is between Hong Kong and China alone. But he's wrong — what happens is crucial in spreading the liberal values that America wants to accompany us on the world stage. After all, "America First" doesn't mean merely focusing on our own domestic problems. It means supporting liberal democracy everywhere.

The protests have been raging on the streets since April, when the government of Hong Kong proposed an extradition bill that would have allowed them to send accused criminals to be tried in mainland China. Of course, when dealing with a communist regime, that's a terrifying prospect — and one that threatens the judicial independence of the city. Thankfully, the protesters succeeded in getting Hong Kong's leaders to suspend the bill from consideration. But everyone knew that the bill was a blatant attempt by the Chinese government to encroach on Hong Kong's autonomy. And now Hong Kong's people are demanding full-on democratic reforms to halt any similar moves in the future.

After a generation under the "one country, two systems" policy, the people of Hong Kong are accustomed to much greater political and economic freedom relative to the rest of China. For the protesters, it's about more than a single bill. Resisting Xi Jinping and the Communist Party means the survival of a liberal democracy within distance of China's totalitarian grasp — a goal that should be shared by the United States. Instead, President Trump has retreated to his administration's flawed "America First" mindset.

This is an ideal opportunity for the United States to assert our strength by supporting democratic values abroad. In his inaugural address, Trump said he wanted "friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world" while "understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their interests first." But at what point is respecting sovereignty enabling dictatorships? American interests are shaped by the principles of our founding: political freedom, free markets, and human rights. Conversely, the interests of China's Communist Party are the exact opposite. When these values come into conflict, as they have in Hong Kong, it's our responsibility to take a stand for freedom — even if those who need it aren't within our country's borders.

Of course, that's not a call for military action. Putting pressure on Hong Kong is a matter of rhetoric and positioning — vital tenets of effective diplomacy. When it comes to heavy-handed world powers, it's an approach that can really work. When the Solidarity movement began organizing against communism in Poland, President Reagan openly condemned the Soviet military's imposition of martial law. His administration's support for the pro-democracy movement helped the Polish people gain liberal reforms from the Soviet regime. Similarly, President Trump doesn't need to be overly cautious about retribution from Xi Jinping and the Chinese government. Open, strong support for democracy in Hong Kong not only advances America's governing principles, but also weakens China's brand of authoritarianism.

After creating a commission to study the role of human rights in U.S. foreign policy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote last month that the principles of our Constitution are central "not only to Americans," but to the rest of the world. He was right — putting "America First" means being the first advocate for freedom across the globe. Nothing shows the strength of our country more than when, in crucial moments of their own history, other nations find inspiration in our flag.

Let's join the people of Hong Kong in their defiance of tyranny.
