I've been down for a couple of days, so I may have missed this, but, has anybody over at the White House labeled Nidal Malik Hasan — the terrorist who killed 13 and wounded 30 more at Fort Hood — an extremist?

I've heard him referred to as a "shooter" and a "gunman." He's been called "troubled" and "harassed." We know he didn't want to be deployed and his cousin called him a "good American." But extremist?

No, we can't say that; we wouldn't want offend anyone.

Are we that politically correct? I guess so. But there is no hesitation by Barack Obama's political arm, Organizing for America, to send out an e-mail calling tea party goers extremists:

"Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can't let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand."

So, that's extremism, but killing 13 people isn't?

If there was anyone who could be labeled "extremist," you would think it would be someone who spoke of Islamic jihad to his fellow soldiers and then acted on those feelings by picking up a weapon and killing his fellow soldiers with it.

But no, there are real extremists picking up a sign and protesting big government.

Sarah Palin — she fought this horrendous health care overhaul, ran for vice president espousing certain principles and she prays. Extremist!

And, I'm an extremist because I dare expose what no one else will: That there are anti-free market officials, admirers of Mao, Marxists and socialists in and around the White House.

But Nidal Malik Hasan is just a picked upon, misunderstood, quiet, "good American," who "snapped" and murdered 13 Americans? He talked openly about his feelings before acting on them.

Did the guy snap? I don't know and I don't care. He murdered Americans in cold blood in an act of bald-faced, extremist terrorism. Maybe he acted alone, then again, maybe he didn't. What do you say we nurse him back to health, question him, have a non-government investigator look into this? Find out what happened. If he's guilty, execute him and move on America; one less dirtbag to deal with.

Oh and speaking of executions: Remember the D.C. sniper? On Wednesday night at 9 p.m. he was executed.

Good. I look forward to celebrating swift justice, that if he is guilty should end in execution. Oh, I'm sorry, is that insensitive of me? Good. I don't care about his childhood. Millions of people have messed up childhoods and they don't kill people. I had a pretty messed up childhood; I bet you did too.

Mommy didn't love me as much. Daddy didn't play with me.

Look at what they're doing to us. Look at how far the discussion has shifted. And, you're going to see and hear this everywhere now. Anyone and everyone who effectively stands in the way of the progressive agenda of the fundamental transformation of America will be labeled an extremist.

Frank Rich and the rest of the Obama-minions at The New York Times will gladly do the bidding of the administration; acting as the propaganda arm of the White House. Rich and the rest will continue to oblige in print and the trolls at MSNBC will eagerly spew the company line on TV: You're extreme; he's extreme; she's extreme; you're dangerous; hateful; outrageous and frightening. Meanwhile, the truly hateful, frightening dangers go unobstructed along their merry way.

When did words and ideas replace fists and bullets as tools of violence? Read a little George Washington, it's called the battlefield of ideas: If you don't fight it there, it will be fought with guns. Don't you see what they are creating? They are leading us to a cemetery. Society cannot survive like this.

No one at the White House or The New York Times has referred to the beat downs issued by SEIU members recently as violent or extreme.

The SEIU thugs caught on video beating down the African-American tea-party goer haven't yet been charged. Meanwhile, last weekend, there was another beat down in California. A Democrat who disagreed with the union thugs is now in the hospital. Is it extremist to beat someone because they disagree with you on health care?

Let me be clear: The terrorist Muslim extremist murderer accused of shooting the Army recruiter dead in Arkansas last summer wasn't even discussed in the media, let alone called an extremist. But, I say America can't afford another trillion dollar entitlement program? Extremist!

So, as long as that's our new reality, let's go with it. Let me make my extremist demands:

Stop spending money you don't have!

Tell us how you plan to pay for a trillion dollar health care plan!

Listen to the people; after all: You work for us!

Get rid of the corruption before you spend another dime!

Audit the Fed!

Term limits and no lifetime benefits for those 12 years of work!

Lower taxes!

Return to the principles embedded by our radical, extremist Founding Fathers!

Wow, pretty extreme, huh? Let me quote another extremist, who said: "If you want to help the poor, help them feel uncomfortable in their poverty." That extremist was... Ben Franklin. Why did he hate the poor so much? Our extremist, radical Founders all knew that government programs were not the answer to poverty. Making people comfortable in their poverty is not the answer to getting them out of poverty. It is the answer for government officials who gain power by making sure that the poverty stricken become permanently dependent upon, them. May I just give you the one word: Detroit.

Look, here's what you need to know: Because people are either afraid or have another agenda and refuse to speak the truth, question with boldness or speak without fear, 13 Americans are dead.

Not on my watch. Not on your watch. I don't care what they do to me or say about me. I'm not playing their politically correct game. This man was a terrorist; American born and bread, Muslim extremist terrorist. He was not afraid to speak his point of view. We were afraid to react it.

Let's go a step further:

Fat people aren't calorically challenged. They aren't pleasantly plump. They are fat.

Poor people aren't economically marginalized. No, they are poor.

A criminals aren't morally challenged or unsavory characters; they're criminals.

Strippers aren't exotic dancers; they are a stripper.

There's no such thing as an escort; you are a whore.

And terrorists aren't freedom fighters; they're dirtbag terrorists.

Stop playing the game. There are more of us than there are of them. Your fear of being silent clears a path for them to carry out their extremist plans and kill people! And I'm supposed to be worried about losing my job and my house? What could be worse than death?

I'm going to make a promise to you. If you spread the word, if you stand fast, if you'll question with boldness everything that comes out of Washington, if you hold tight to family, principles and values, then this country is going to turn the page and turn a corner — because of you. But it won't happen if we aren't honest with each other or if we call fat people "well-rounded" or Osama bin Laden a freedom fighter.

This is a historic time. Stand up and you will be written about in the history books.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
