Glenn Beck: Founder of Muslim TV network beheads wife

Muzzammil Hassan, right, founder of Bridges TV, is charged with murder in the beheading of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, left, in Orchard Park, N.Y.

GLENN: Bridges. You haven't watched Bridges TV? You know, a lot of people don't watch Bridges TV and they should. It's building bridges. A lot of people watch it for its hard hitting programming such as Muslim American Teen Talk, which is so fantastic that sometimes I just have to watch it. Even though I'm not a teen or a talker, you know, on teen subjects, I watch the Muslim American Teen Talk show on Bridges TV. It's an American Islamic TV channel, quote, seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States and to, quote, offer a unique perspective on the Middle East and the war on terrorism, end quote. It sounds great, sounds exactly like the kind of show I've been waiting for, and it's a whole network. It's not just a show. And I especially appreciate their news programming, described as this in an article in 2006: Some speakers openly criticize Islamic extremists. Some guests, however, are extremists. One religious figure who appeared October 3rd said Muslims have a duty to change America and to increase their numbers to 50% of the population from 2%. He recommended that Sharia, or Islamic, law be implemented in American courts. During a round table discussion during the Arab-Israeli conflict, one participant offered a solution: For the Jews to leave and return to Europe.

But see, this isn't what the whole network's about. I mean, sure we've got those crazy things but that's not what it's about. This is a TV channel that's, quote, seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States, end quote. So most of their program is just wonderful. I mean, their programming is fantastic. Aasiya Hassan is the woman who came up with the idea for the network. She worked closely with her husband, Muzzammil Hassan. They put together Bridges TV, just building bridges. "Honey, that is one of the greatest ideas I've ever heard." "Thank you, sweetheart. Oh, I just love being partners with you. Oh, we're building bridges together, aren't we?" Bridges TV, again the network, quote, seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States.

By the way, Aasiya was reportedly looking to divorce her husband and his reaction, I mean, granted he flew off the handle just a little bit. He's been charged now this week for second-degree murder of his wife and Hassan, all he was trying to do -- I mean, let's just play our cards face up on the table. All he was trying to do was apparently he was just seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States so much, he was so committed to that that he had to decapitate her. That's all he had to do. Building bridges to decapitation, and her body was found in the hallway of the television station that they founded whose goal, by the way, was seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States. Right there in that station where they worked hard to improve the image of Muslims in the United States, right there at that television station, Bridges TV, her headless body was found in the hallway.

Now, when you hear this story, no doubt you're going to hear some hate mongering conservatives that just want to point out, you know, that they hate people because they're different. You know, they'll say things like... (mumbling), people saying, "I don't think decapitation is helping to improve the image of Muslims in the United States." That's the kind of hate that you're gonna hear. But come on, can't we just be honest with each other? Can't we just stop and put all the hate behind us? Is one, just one simple decapitation going to erase all of the good done by thousands of hours on Muslim American Teen Talk? Just one? Okay, all right, okay, so they decapitated one person. Have you seen teen talk? It's teens talking about improving the image of Muslim Americans, you know, here... something. I'm not sure, but they're talking a lot. Okay, so okay, so the founder's wife is dead in the hallway, and... what's that teen have to say?

So now as the owner of Bridges TV, the station, of course, seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States, the owner is the only suspect, you know, considering that he's the guy who walked into the police station and said that she was dead. So I'm sure that Bridges TV, the station seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States, is covering the probable truth that he was, you know, probably framed by imperialists and Dick Cheney donors. That's probably what happened. But let's not lose sight. The mission of Bridges TV, the station seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States, it was described as fostering an understanding between cultures and diverse populations. If we can't embrace the diversity of beheading -- okay, so there are people who behead people and people who don't. If we can't come together and just look beyond some of our differences, how are we ever going to really grow as a nation? So before you judge, maybe you should think about whether you understand that diverse culture, you know. Ask yourself, what are you doing to improve the image of Muslims in the United States? Have you beheaded your wife after you started a television station? Did you? No. Have you started a TV station where you said, "Hey, all the Jews can just move, leave and go back to Europe"? No, you haven't done that. These people have -- well, this one person is still trying to do it. The other person, you know, she doesn't have a head. But you know what I think of when I think of a head lying in a hallway? Bowling. No, I'm just saying there might -- hey, you don't like diversity? Really, Mr. Hate monger? You have a problem with people who like to bowl with heads? Sure. Maybe it's not your cup of tea.

STU: Are you trying to diversify our programming by going --

GLENN: Pardon me?

STU: Are you trying to diversify our programming by going with the ideas of the owner of the station?

GLENN: I'm just saying why not -- I mean --

STU: His editorial opinion hasn't been presented on this show?

GLENN: He's in jail. Nobody's going to listen to him now. Somebody's got to pick up that ball or that head and roll with it. Run with it. Something with it. I'm just saying. You know what really bothers me? We've come to the point in America where we can't tell the truth. These guys were on the front lines of shutting anybody down, of saying, you know, hey, you're a hate monger; you just hate all Muslims. No, I don't. No, I don't. I don't think all of them want to behead people. I don't think all of them want to live under Sharia law. I think there are those here in the United States and, surprise, surprise, thanks to our southern border and our northern border, there are more and more of them here in our country that do want us to live under Sharia law. Yep, I think they exist and, yep, I think we should out them. I think people should know what Sharia law means and if you don't conform, what happens to you. But, of course, that's hate speech.

Did you hear about -- by the way, did you hear about the diplomat from Afghanistan? He's great. He's a UN diplomat. He was beating his wife nearly to death. He took a belt to her and everything else. She went, she ran to police. Police said don't do that again. She went home. He beat her again. For three hours he beat her. He then stepped on her throat, was choking her to death while he called the police and said he's been beaten and he needs help right away. When the police got there -- this guy's not too bright -- they figured it out. He's now facing seven years. He claimed, "Diplomatic immunity, diplomatic..." and they said, no, I don't think so, jack.

By the way, one completely unrelated story to all of this, did anybody see the story from the FBI that they now consider C.A.I.R. a Hamas front organization? That was weird how that hasn't come out in the news. Wait a minute. C.A.I.R., the organization that has White House access, George Bush White House access, the organization that we couldn't shut down down in Texas. Oh, just the hate mongering and the hate speech that went around that, the one that has access to the highest levels of all of the networks, we're sitting in the offices of the head people at CNN when they hired me telling me that they would protest and they would shut them down, the people that were in the head offices of Disney when I went to work at ABC, those people, a front organization according to the FBI for Hamas. Who would have seen that one coming. I just -- hmmm. But how come that hasn't been reported in the news? Why is that, why is that not everywhere? Are we really to the point in America where we can't tell the truth anymore? The answer is yes. The answer is yes. We're trying to figure out, how did we get here? How did we get to a place to where our country is on the edge?

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.


I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."
