It Didn’t Take Long to Politicize the New York Attack

What’s going on?

As usual, both political “teams” are trying to spin the latest tragedy to fit their agenda. After the terrorist attack in New York City on Tuesday, President Donald Trump pointed at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for supporting the “diversity visa” program that reportedly allowed suspect Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov to come into the country.

So what did Trump tweet this time?

“I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this! The terrorist came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program,’ a Chuck Schumer beauty,” Trump said in a pair of tweets on Tuesday.

Glenn’s take:

On today’s show, Glenn corrected the record on who officially gave us that immigration policy: a Republican president.

“It’s actually not a ‘Chuck Schumer beauty,’” Glenn fact-checked the tweet. “Do you know who signed that bill into law?” he asked. “George H.W. Bush.”

VOICE: You got kids in there? All right. Hold on.

GLENN: This is the sound yesterday in New York City, as an Islamic terrorist --

VOICE: Are you okay? Oh, my God. Are you okay? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

GLENN: -- slammed into the back of a school bus.

VOICE: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

GLENN: Two kids were hurt. One seriously -- critical condition today.

VOICE: Right here.

GLENN: So what are we talking about? I mean, it didn't take long to politicize the terrorist attack yesterday in New York City. It's in full swing. This time, it's our side: Donald Trump immediately took to Twitter to blame Senator Chuck Schumer for the attacker, Sighpov, for being in the country in the first place. Trump tweeted that the murderer came to our country through what was called the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, a Chuck Schumer beauty. It's actually not a Chuck Schumer beauty.

Listen. I'll give you the facts in a second. He went on to write, we're fighting hard for merit-based immigration. No more Democrat lottery systems. We have to get much tougher and much smarter. Schumer fired back with a tweet. I guess it's not too soon to politicize a tragedy. You've got to be kidding me, coming from Schumer. Stop it. Both sides, stop it.

Chuck Schumer, the king of politicizing. So please, I don't want to hear it from either of you. Can we be adults! Do you know who signed that bill into law? Chuck Schumer was just one of the cosponsors. You know who signed that into law? George H.W. Bush.

So it's not a Democratic thing. Both sides were involved in that. Instead of typing snarky comments to one another, why don't you start using your platform to talk about Ryan Nash?

Ryan Nash was the police officer, routine call when he was faced with an unimaginable situation. He came face-to-face with Sighpov. Twenty-eight-year-old officer knew what he had to do: stop the killing spree.

He shot him yesterday. Who knows what other atrocities would have occurred, if Nash had not stopped the attacker. Can we take a moment and just thank our police officers for being there? Can we be adults and stop the mind less tweeting and focus on what matters most?

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

Why it’s time for Dr. Fauci to STOP DOING INTERVIEWS!

Dr. Fauci was at it again over the weekend, this time declaring during a CBS News interview that it's 'too soon to tell' if Americans can safely gather with family this Christmas season. But the main issue isn't necessarily Fauci's crazy statement, Stu explains to Glenn. Rather, it's Fauci doing TV interviews at all. The left will support anything he says and the right will call him an idiot no matter what. He no longer has the ability to sway minds, so why is he on television more than Glenn is?!

If the Deep State Can Ruin Gen. Flynn's Life, It Can Ruin Yours | Ep 119

Donald Trump famously tweeted, "They're not after me, they're after you. I'm just in the way." General Michael Flynn was also in the way, apparently, because the deep state has definitely gone after him, on every front. He's been hounded by the Department of Justice, the FBI, the Democrat Party, and the media. But the hounding didn't stop there. Chase Bank canceled accounts because he was "a reputational risk." Meanwhile, the real problems of our country go unchecked. Glenn and Gen. Flynn talk about all of it and more: The immigration crisis in Del Rio, the opioid crisis, the impact of critical race theory, the threat of radical Islamism, the corruption of the media, the persecution of Brett Kavanaugh, the incompetence of Biden, the tragedy of Afghanistan, the hypocrisy of Gen. Milley. And Russia. It's is all we heard for the last six years. But as details emerge, we see the truth. Gen. Flynn is very clear: "I didn't lie to the FBI." And yet, Gen. Flynn still believes in the American people to save the country.
