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?

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.
