Charlie Hebdo Mocks Harvey Victims With Nazi-Themed Cover

Charlie Hebdo, the French magazine attacked by terrorists in 2015, decided to target victims of Tropical Storm Harvey with a recent cover.

The publication, which has long mocked religion, featured the headline “God Exists! He Drowned All the Neo-Nazis of Texas” with an illustration of drowning people reaching above flood waters to do the Nazi salute next to sinking Swastika flags.

In 2011 and 2015, Charlie Hebdo was targeted by terrorists because the magazine mocked the religion of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. When terrorists mowed down 12 people in its office in the 2015 attack, journalists and media figures worldwide rallied around the magazine based on the principle of free speech, supporting the publication with #IAmCharlie and #JeSuisCharlie.

“We didn’t defend them because they were right or they were good; we defended them because they had a right,” Glenn said on radio Thursday.

Stu Burguiere pointed out that mocking religion because you have no faith is one thing, but making fun of people who have died is another.

“Mocking Mohammad or mocking Jesus, that doesn’t mean anything to you [as an atheist] because you don’t believe they’re real. The people who are dying in Texas are actually real,” he said.

GLENN: Wasn't that nice to hear from, you know, a world leader? I mean, that almost brought me to tears.

PAT: Incredible.

GLENN: Here's the deputy prime minister of Poland at the very end, wanted to squeeze in, hey, anything that we could do for you.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, that is so nice.

PAT: It's so rare from people in other countries to say good things about the United States and to feel badly for us when tragedies happen here. So that was -- that was really nice.

STU: Quite an objective position against the Charlie Hebdo thing from earlier, where they were calling everybody in Texas Nazis and cheering for their deaths.

GLENN: Look, guys, we knew those guys were not good people.

PAT: That's amazing.

I didn't know they were that bad. That's pretty bad.

GLENN: You saw what they were printing about the Prophet Muhammad and Jesus and everybody else.

STU: Yeah, but they don't believe in God.

PAT: Right. Right.

STU: If you're an atheist, offending Muhammad or Jesus is nothing, right? These are real people that are actually dying right now. They're calling them Nazis and cheering on their death. That is totally --

PAT: They have no reason to do that. I guess it's just the stereotype of Texas, that everybody here --

GLENN: Wait. So they have a reason to make, you know, Jesus --

PAT: Well, yeah.

STU: They don't believe in Jesus.

GLENN: Having sex with Muhammad?

STU: Yes.

PAT: They don't believe in him.

STU: Yes. Yes.

GLENN: Yeah, but that's not a reason to do it, other than they like to just stir it up.

STU: They like to mock religion, which they think is fake. So they have no reverence. We have a sanctity element when it comes to religious figures. They don't.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: So it's understandable. What we did with them is not say, "We love what you stand for." We said, "We understand the human torture that has gone on in your company. We stand with you because we're human beings and we hate to see other human beings be tortured." We don't have to agree on religion. We don't have to agree on any topic.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But we still feel -- because we're members of humanity, and we feel that with you.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, I agree with everything you're saying. I guess I just had such low expectations of them, that I -- I'm like -- when I saw that yesterday, I'm like, yeah. That's Charlie Hebdo, of course.

STU: Yeah. To be clear, I thought they were -- I did not think they were good people. Right? And now I think they're even worse.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: So I'm just surprised that -- if you can't stand up and say, man, a lot of people are dying, completely innocent people, against a natural disaster. That aren't Nazis. You're -- you're not only cheering on their death, but you're also calling them basically the worst people that ever lived, without any evidence at all.

PAT: The difference is I thought they were bad to about the 100th power, and it seems they're bad to about the 10,000th power.

STU: Yeah, that's a big difference.

PAT: It's just a degree of badness that we're discussing here.

STU: Yeah. An exponential growth is quick. So when you go over 100th power to 10,000th, that's a big jump --

PAT: That's a big jump.

GLENN: Yeah, that's pretty big. That's pretty big.

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
