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.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
