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?

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.
