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.


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.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
