GLENN: Here is our chief law enforcement officer from the DOJ talking about the Arizona bill yesterday in a hearing.

CONGRESSMAN POE: concepts that you haven't read the law. So can you help me out there a little bit, how you can make a judgment call on that but you haven't read the law and determined whether it's constitutional or not?

HOLDER: Well, what I've said is I've not made up my mine. I've only made the comments that I've made on the basis of things that I've been able to glean by reading newspaper accounts, obviously, television, talk to the people who are on the review panel.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

HOLDER: Or on the review team that are looking at the law. But I've not reached any conclusions as yet with regard to it. I've just expressed concerns on the basis of what I've heard about the law. But I'm not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with the people who are doing the review exactly what my position is.

PAT: That is unbelievable.

GLENN: Yeah. You know how many pages it is?

PAT: The Arizona law? Yeah, 16. Pretty tough reading.

GLENN: I know. I don't know when I would find time to read 16 pages.

PAT: No, please.

GLENN: I would you know what? If I were the chief law enforcement officer of the United States of America, I would definitely not read 16 pages. I would read accounts from the newspapers and from the press. No, wait a minute, now I'm confused because the president told me not to do that because there's a lot of misinformation out there in the press. How do I know what's true and what's not? The president told me I couldn't know what was true, what was not. I should go to the original source. But then again, it's 16 whole pages. I should just make a statement.

PAT: And he did.

HOLDER: It's certainly one of the concerns that I have that you will end up in a situation where people are racially profiled and that could lead to a wedge drawn between certain communities and law enforcement.

PAT: It's going to lead to racial profiling. If he had read the bill, he would know it specifically prohibits racial profiling.

GLENN: No, but he doesn't have time to do that.

PAT: I know. It's 16 pages.

GLENN: He's right now, what he's doing right now, and I want to make it very, very clear because it sounds like that the Department of Justice would come out and they would — well, may I quote the president: I don't have any of the facts, but the police are acting stupidly. It sounds to me like we have somebody else in our government that has predisposed viewpoints on just about everything, and they don't need any more facts. They just know. And it sounds to me like he might be flippant, but that's not true. That's not true, and I want you to know that. He's busy. Right now he's busy hunting down those Islamic terrorists. Right now he's in court and he is fighting hard for no right to privacy in your e mails. But it's only for Islamic terrorists. It's not for you, America, just for Islamic terrorists. Sure, they can be American citizens. Sure, they can — they're fighting now for the tracking of your location, but not you. Islamic terrorists, those jihadists that are after us. He's so busy right now fighting to take away the Miranda rights of those jihadists, those Islamic terrorists. Not you, definitely not you. Definitely, definitely not you. Because he knows, he knows what we're up against. He knows what we're fighting against. He knows that there's a war on terror. "We don't call it a war on terror. It is a contingency..."

PAT: It's an Overseas Contingency Operation.

GLENN: Yes, but it's almost, it's this close to war because those jihadists that are coming after us. In fact, let me play this audio for you now from Eric Holder.

CONGRESSMAN POE: And in the case of all three attempts in the last year, the terrorist attempts, one of which was successful, those individuals have had ties to radical Islam. Do you feel that these individuals might have been incited to take the actions that they did because of radical Islam?

HOLDER: Because of?


HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why I think people have taken these actions. It's — one, I think you have to look at each individual case. I mean, we are in the process now of talking to Mr. Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to take the action.

CONGRESSMAN POE: But radical Islam could have been one of the reasons?

HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why —

CONGRESSMAN POE: But is radical Islam one of them?

HOLDER: There are a variety of reasons why people do these things. Some of them are potentially religious —

CONGRESSMAN POE: I'm asking why you think among those variety of reasons radical Islam might have been one of the reasons that the individuals took the steps that they did.

HOLDER: Well, you say radical Islam. I mean, I think those people who espouse a version of Islam that...

PAT: Ah, oh. So not Islam, not radical Islam but people.

HOLDER: I don't want to say anything negative about a religion.

CONGRESSMAN POE: I'm not talking about a religion. I'm talking about radical Islam. I'm not talking about the general religion.

HOLDER: Right. And I'm saying that a person like Anwar Awlaki, for instance, who has a version of Islam that is not consistent with the teachings —

GLENN: Listen — stop for a second. Listen to how far these people will go.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: To defend radical Islam. There's no even, there's no such thing as even radical Islam to him! There's not even anything that is radical Islam: No, no, no, no, no —

PAT: They are just radical tea party members.

GLENN: That's what they are. When you boil it down, they are just mad at the government, and it has nothing to do with anything. Look at how far. Yet these are the people that are already accusing tea partygoers of violence and being KKK members. So don't tell me — oh, boy. You know, I — Bill and I had it out last night. Bill O'Reilly and I had it out. You'll see it tonight. I can't believe. I love Bill O'Reilly, but I can't believe how naive this man is. I may have called him a pinhead. I may have. I may have called him a pinhead.

PAT: I've got to see that tonight.

GLENN: I can't believe how naive he is. He brought up the Miranda rights: Well, that's wrong because they are just, you know, they are just trying to get these — Glenn, there's these Islamic radicals that are trying to — are you out of your mind? You think that they are going after the Islamic radicals with all? Really? That's what they are doing all this for?

PAT: Listen to Holder. He tells you that's not what they are doing this for. They don't even — I mean, they are not even looking for radical Islamist terrorists.

GLENN: Now, may I tell you something, America, that is — I'm going to ask you to breathe deep. I'm going to tell you pieces of a story and each piece is going to make you more and more angry. I just want you to breathe deep. Piece Number 1: You know that ten years after the World Trade Center and we got nothing, right? We got nothing. Breathe deep. Ground Zero's just still — breathe deep. But right across the street from Ground Zero is a brand new 13 story mosque. Breathe deep. Breathe deep.

PAT: I don't need to because I heard from an imam yesterday.

GLENN: Yeah. So it's a 13 story mosque.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And it opens 9/11/11, on the tenth anniversary of Ground Zero, a new mosque opens up right across the street of Ground Zero. Now, we'll get that imam's explanation here in a second, but I just, I just would like to point this out. Our kids are being expelled from school on a made up holiday, a holiday that's not even celebrated in Mexico. It's a made up holiday, a holiday that we celebrate, Cinco de Mayo, it was made up by Dos XX and Corona. Our children are being kicked out of school because they're insensitive for wearing an American flag on Cinco de Mayo on a T shirt, but nobody wants to talk about, oh, I don't know, how that might be a little insensitive to open and dedicate a 13 story mosque on the lip of the hole that is still there, the scar that is Ground Zero? You don't think it's a little insensitive to dedicate that mosque on 9/11 at Ground Zero?

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
