Zuhdi Jasser: We Have to Stand by Our Constitutional Principles and Human Rights

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, contributor on TheBlaze and author of Battle For the Soul of Islam, joined Glenn on radio Friday to discuss his new website TakeIslamBack.com, launching next week. Dr. Jasser has been a leading voice against radical Islam.

"What is your life like, Zuhdi? Do you have a lot of threats on your life?" Glenn asked.

Most of the threats against Dr. Jasser come from radical Islamists and neo-Nazis who think he's an apologist and lying about Islam.

"But I have to tell you, I don't like to talk about it much because it pales in comparison to the real heroes in the prisons of Syria and Saudi Arabia, Iran, that truly have no freedom," Dr. Jasser said.

Recognizing full well the blessings of free speech in the United States, Dr. Jasser believes it's imperative for peace-loving Muslims in the West to speak up.

"Seventy percent of the world lives under some type of oppressive force. And you set aside China and Russia, the rest is all Islamists that are destroying the world's freedoms. And they're coming to the West if we don't begin to defend what we believe in our constitutional principles," Dr. Jasser said.

Germany, where migrant rapes and fascism are both on the rise, provides a perfect example of what festers when real issues are left unresolved --- and that worries Dr. Jasser.

"I was actually very happy about Brexit because the EU's disillusion of national identity was one of the reasons Islamism was taking such root in the immigrant communities there. And the opposite reaction to that was the neo-nation, you know, neo-fascism of many of the movements. And the only way to find a middle ground there is to support secular nationalism of Britain, of Germany, of Belgium, in a reestablishment of the ideas through classical liberalism and democracy that Europe was built on," Dr. Jasser said.

Just two days ago, a British citizen was given 12 months detention and community service after posting on Facebook that he didn't want Muslims coming into the country.

"If you can't write things publicly and have free speech to do that, the Brits are starting to buckle down like the Saudis. I mean, this is going to cause their country to bust at the seams, and we can't do that. We have to stand by our constitutional principles and human rights," Dr. Jasser said.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
