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.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
