Buck Sexton Interview on CNN Will Make Blood Shoot out of Your Eyes

Search Google today for pedestrians killed by automobiles in a terrorist attack, and top results will be all about France. On any other day, results would be about Israel. What happened in Nice, France occurs regularly in Israel, and it's coming to American soon. Why? Because radicalized Islamists want to kill anyone who doesn't believe in their extreme ideology. But don't tell that to progressive liberals --- and don't try to convince them we're on the same team.

"Yesterday, Buck Sexton was on CNN, and I mean blood will shoot out of your eyes," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

Sexton, a commentator on TheBlaze and former CIA analyst joined The Glenn Beck Program to discuss his CNN interview following the horrific attack on Bastille Day in Nice.

"Buck is a former CIA agent who used to brief the president, and Buck, I saw you last night on CNN, and I have to tell you, I didn't know my blood pressure could go up that high," Glenn said.

Sexton had a heated exchange with a Georgia State University professor during the CNN segment. The professor took exception to Sexton's assertion that terrorists are "coming after us."

According to the professor's logic, the fact that radical Islamists have killed other Muslims means we should ignore the threat to non-Muslims.

PROFESSOR: And I do disagree with Mr. Sexton, because the fact is, and I'll say this to you, Buck, directly, the vast majority of ISIS's victims are Muslim, not us, not the West.

BUCK: I'm fully aware of that. I mean, no one disputes that.

PROFESSOR: Well, then you keep saying they're coming after us. They're not coming after us more than they're coming after each other.

BUCK: No, I was referring to the Islamic state which very clearly through its external operations arm --- which has been at work, by the way, for a number of years now, along with al-Qaeda in the Arabian peninsula, which until recently was considered the most virulent and deadly of the jihadist terrorist organizations for this kind of external plotting --- they are continuing to do this. Of course they're killing Muslims. They're killing Muslims in Turkey and Saudi Arabia and Iraq, and I've seen some of the handiwork they've done in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.

PROFESSOR: You said they're coming after us. They're not coming after us.

BUCK: Yes! They are, in fact, coming after us...

PROFESSOR: But they're mostly going after each other.

BUCK: When I say "us" I'm referring to America and Europe and the West and all peaceful Muslims and everyone around the world who doesn't believe that strapping a suicide vest on --- because you're disaffected, because you have some believe that somehow this will take you to a place of paradise and virgins, whatever the case may be --- everybody who isn't on that team is on my team. This notion you have in your head that when I say "us" I'm referring to, what, Republican Americans? I was in the military inside the CIA...

PROFESSOR: No, you're saying "us" as Americans.

BUCK: ...I was working with foreign allies all over the world to try and stop these kinds of attacks. You're making an implication that's preposterous, and I have to be honest with you, after this sort of an attack happens, there is this knee-jerk reaction that happens that we see from people who are center to left-of-center, constantly trying to wrap all this around the bad rhetoric of people who want to speak openly and honestly about terrorism. We're just trying to empower the moderates from within Muslim societies, we're trying to empower our allies in countries that we do work with --- inside the Muslim world and outside the Muslim world --- to stop people from getting mowed down at a celebration of a National holiday. That's it.

"I can't take it anymore. This is a professor from Georgia State University. Again, a professor from a university. If this doesn't stop, we --- and I mean all those who don't think that we should strap a suicide vest on to our chest --- we're all dead. We're all dead. Do we understand that yet? This is coming to America soon," Glenn said.

Sexton agreed, adding more perspective to the CNN interview.

"Glenn, I have to tell you, the context for that one exchange is also relevant. We had just finished one segment where I had listened to people who are terror experts, you know, whatever that may mean. I'll leave it to others as to how expert people are based on what they say," Sexton said.

The so-called experts, still searching for a motive in the Nice attack, questioned France's ability to assimilate Muslims.

"We have now over 80 people mowed down and killed. How much questioning do we have to do about whether this was a jihadist attack? They're going to, sort of, pretend that they can't tell a motive --- even if they find a signed confession or a motive video somewhere, we're still gonna be told we don't know what the motive is. But all I heard about from these so-called terror experts was, 'Well, France does a bad job of assimilating Muslim minorities,'" Sexton said.

"Oh, shut up," Glenn said.

Naturally, according to progressive talking heads, inflammatory, right-wing rhetoric also incited the violence in France.

"It's because Donald Trump tweets something you're going to strap on a suicide vest or drive a truck into a crowd of people --- men, women and children --- and mow them down by dozens at a time?" Sexton asked, rhetorically.

Who will be Kamala Harris' VP pick?

Over the weekend, President Joe Biden officially dropped out of the 2024 presidential election and put forward his endorsement behind his Vice President Kamala Harris.

Glenn recently predicted that Biden would step down due to the mountain of pressure within his party to do so. But now that we are here we are faced with an all-new line of questions, like, who will be the candidate on the Democratic ticket? Who will be their pick for vice president?

As of now, the answer to the first question seems to be Kamala Harris, who received the support of the president and several prominent democrats. It's still too early to call for certain, and Glenn doesn't think it's likely, but assuming Kamala becomes the Democrat nominee, who will her VP pick be? There are endless possible options, but there are a 5 big names that could prove beneficial to Harris' campaign:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom

Governor Newsom has spiked in popularity within his party since his taking office in 2019 due to his scathing criticisms of President Trump and other Republicans. Newsom has been a popular contender as a possible Biden replacement, and a future presidential bid seems likely.

His widespread recognition may be a boon to Kamala's ticket, but the California governor comes with a dark side. Newsom was famously nearly recalled as Governor in 2021, hanging on to his office by a narrow margin. He also faced criticism for his hypocrisy during the COVID lockdowns, attending large gatherings while the rest of his state was locked inside. There's also the issue that both Newsom and Kamala are from California, meaning that if they were to appear on the same ticket, that ticket would lack geographical balance and would potentially lead to a Constitutional issue that would force the duo to forfeit all 54 of the states' Electoral College votes.

Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro

Another prominent Democrat Governor, Josh Shapiro has also been floated as a potential VP pick. Governor Shapiro has become a viable pick due to his well-received performance as Pennslyvania's Governor. The governor has good support within the swing state due to his handling of the I-95 bridge collapse, the train derailment in East Palestine, which had effects on his state, and the assassination attempt on the former president last week. Shapiro would bring much-needed support from the swing state if he was put on the ticket.

That being said, Shapiro has little time to build nationwide name recognition before the DNC in August and the November election. This would be Shapiro's debut on the national stage, and he would find himself in the most unforgiving situation possible.

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg

Former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and opponent of Biden during the 2020 Democratic primaries, "Mayor Pete's" name recognition might be what Kamala needs on her presidential ticket. Buttigieg rose to popularity during the 2020 election due to his youth and status as "openly gay." Buttigieg has served as the Secretary of Transportation during the Biden administration for the past four years and has formally endorsed Harris.

Nevertheless, Buttigieg has some dark spots on his resume. The East Palestine train derailment disaster has besmirched his reputation as Secretary of Transportation. And while his youth may work in his favor when compared to the other elderly members of our federal government, it also means Buttigieg lacks the experience and prestige that other politicians enjoy.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer

Yet another governor of a crucial swing state, Whitmer was elected in 2018, two years after President Trump was elected, helping secure the state for the Democrats. Whitmer is known for her strong opposition to Trump, both during his presidency and his reelection campaign. Whitmer serves as co-chair for the Biden-Harris campaign and as vice chairperson of the DNC, which gives her influence over the Democratic party, something that would come in handy as a Vice President. Gov. Whitmer also established the Fight Like Hell PAC, which is dedicated to helping Democrats get elected and to stopping Trump by any means.

On the other hand, in a statement following Biden's resignation from the election, Governor Whitmer stated that her role “will remain the same.” It is also worth noting that if she were to be chosen as Kamala's VP, that would make their ticket all-female, which may foster some "woke points," but is politically risky.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear

Andy Bashear has seemingly beaten the odds twice, having been elected and reelected as the Governor of Kentucky, despite the deep-red nature of the state. Beshear, who has moderate tendencies, would be a boon to the Harris campaign as he has a track record of reaching rural, typically conservative regions where Democrats tend to struggle. He is also known for his propensity to talk about his Christian faith and willingness to work with Republicans, which are traits that might help win over moderates.

But, like Gov. Shapiro, Bashear has very little time to whip up national support and recognition. He also is unlikely to be very much help for the Harris campaign in winning over important swing states.

Five times Glenn had J.D. Vance on his show and where he stands on key issues

We finally have an answer to the long-awaited question of who Trump will pick for his running mate, and it's none other than Ohio Senator and friend of the show, J.D. Vance. At the RNC in Milwaukee, Trump officially accepted the party's nomination as the Republican candidate and announced J.D. Vance as his running mate.

Glenn has had Senator Vance on the show several times to discuss everything from DEI to the Southern Border. If you are looking to familiarize yourself with the next potential Vice President, look no further, here are five conversations Glenn had with Trump's VP pick:

How RFK's example can help our nation in the wake of Trump's attack

Rowland Scherman / Contributor | Getty Images

How did you feel last Saturday when you heard the news that a former president of the United States narrowly avoided an assassin's bullet by a mere few inches? Were you angry at the media for their constant demonization of Trump and his conservative contingency? Did you blame the left for curating a political climate that fostered an assassination attempt?

In his immediate reaction to the news, Glenn pointed us back to a similar moment in American history: April 4th, 1968—the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.

"The best speech I've ever heard given was by RFK Sr. on the day Martin Luther King was killed" - Glenn

Robert F. Kennedy, the father of current independent presidential candidate RFK Jr., was en route to Indianapolis when he heard the terrible news. His security team, expecting violent outrage across the country, asked RFK Sr. to turn around and head back to safety. But as Glenn said, RFK Sr. believed in the good in people and demanded to give his speech. He arrived in Indianapolis Park late in the day, and he addressed the crowd of predominantly black campaign supporters.

There were no riots in Indianapolis that night.

The message RFK Sr. gave that night wasn't one of vengeance, hatred, or hopelessness, but of calm and goodness. He appealed to the best in people. He called for people to set aside their differences, anger, fear, and confusion and instead express love and compassion towards one another. RFK Sr. asked for wisdom and the pursuit of justice so that we might be resolute in our unity as the country faces another difficult chapter.

What we need in this country is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another.

Glenn has made a similar plea to our nation—a plea for unity and not to lash out in fear and anger. Don't use this time to blame your friends and family who disagree with you politically for what happened or to tell them "I told you so!" Instead, reach out with compassion and grace. This is a turning point in American history. Let's turn it upward, away from hatred and violence and towards unison and compassion.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.

During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”
