GLENN: I understand the Ground Zero mosque, Media Matters has uncovered audio from 2006 of me defending is that how it's stated?

STU: Actually, flashback: In 2006 short appearance Beck appeared to call Imam Rauf a good Muslim! Baselessly!

PAT: Ooh, look at that headline, too: It's on tape! Glenn Beck and the good Muslim, Imam Rauf.

GLENN: Okay. So I'm on tape, I'm on tape apparently in 2006 defending and calling this Muslim imam a good Muslim.

PAT: A good Muslim. Let's hear it.

STU: You were praising him.

GLENN: I was praising him.

SAWYER: Well, as we mention Pope Benedict XVI has touched down in Turkey, the first ever pope to visit a Muslim country. It has now been two months since he quoted the 14th century scholar who characterized any lure of violence in Islam as evil. It set off a firestorm.

PAT: Here we go. Round 2 of discussion.

SAWYER: I know this is about in some ways of education, lack of understanding. They said can we ever bridge this divide?

PAT: Can we?

SAWYER: If there is a religion in which you can't publish a cartoon without a death threat and the pope

PAT: That's Imam Rauf.

GLENN: At the table?

PAT: At the table and you.

GLENN: I met this guy?

PAT: You've apparently proof positive of calling him a good Muslim!

GLENN: Okay. I met this guy?

PAT: You met him.

GLENN: He was in the room with me?

PAT: He's sitting at the same table.

GLENN: Oh, my goodness.

PAT: I don't know if there was food served, I don't know if you broke bread but you are sitting here.

GLENN: All right, go ahead.

SAWYER: Has to wear we think a flak jacket after having apologized for a statement when he goes to visit the Pope.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Hold on. I'm sorry. May I just talk about having to wear a flak jacket for statements that you make?

STU: Yeah, but you deserve it.

GLENN: Oh, okay. I'm sorry, go ahead.

STU: Unlike him.

PAT: Come on, don't try to equate that.

SAWYER: Understand about the inflamed feelings of the Muslim community?

IMAM RAUF: Well, the Muslim world has felt for a long time besieged by the west, western faith culture, Western traditions, Western atheism from the Soviet Union. And what we see over the last 30, 40 years is a reaction

PAT: By the way, the Soviets aren't in the West.

GLENN: Thank you for that.

IMAM RAUF: from the action which began and peaked in the first part of the 20th century against religion in general and Islam as well as other traditions.

SAWYER: Do you feel these are overreactions or appropriate reactions to these two events?

IMAM RAUF: I feel they are wrong reactions. These reactions are not at all called for by Islamic teachings. The teachings of Islam are very similar to the teachings of Christianity, of loving the one God and loving thy neighbor. These are the two carbon principles.

SAWYER: All right. Let me turn to Glenn Beck because the Imam Rauf has said this is a group of people. This is not him.

GLENN: Sure.

SAWYER: This is not about all of Islam. This is just a group of people.

GLENN: Sure. I believe it's a small portion of Islam that is

PAT: Is that it? This is a group of people. This is not him.

STU: Sure, it's a group of people.

PAT: You weren't specifically talking about this guy. You know nothing about this guy at this point.

STU: Sure.

PAT: Sure. That's their proof?

GLENN: That is not their proof.

STU: Sure, sure.

GLENN: This is on the Huffington Post? No, come on! This is the Huffington Post?

STU: Sure and then sure again! You said sure, and just to make sure you didn't know what I said, I said sure again! Two sures, twice! Sure, sure!

GLENN: Wait a minute, there's got to be more!

STU: Sure and then sure. What more do you need?

PAT: Let's see if there is. Should we go a little further? That's amazing.

GLENN: Can we go back?

IMAM RAUF: Loving the one god and loving thy neighbor, these are the two carbon principles.

SAWYER: All right. Let me turn to Glenn Beck because the Imam Rauf has said this is a group of people, this is not him. This is not all of Islam.

GLENN: Sure.

SAWYER: This is just a group of people.

GLENN: Sure.

PAT: Twice! There it is again proof of Glenn Beck's endorsement ringing spiritual endorsement of the goodness, mercy and love and good intentions of this man!

GLENN: Sure, sure. Sure.

PAT: Twice!

STU: He did it again! He's now admitted!

GLENN: I double down. I did it four times.

PAT: You doubled down!

GLENN: I did it four times!

PAT: He doubled down!

GLENN: Are you ready for this? It was actually an octet because I just said it four times there and I played it on tape four times! It's an octet of support!

PAT: Glenn Beck is practically a Muslim!

GLENN: (Laughing).

PAT: If you say "Sure" eight times in a row.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: You've converted to Islam.

STU: Who's married to Imam Rauf? Is it Glenn Beck or Daisy Khan? We don't even know.

PAT: That's ten times!

STU: And then you go on to the hateful comment because as they, of course, have to paint you of hating Muslims all the time.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: They put incredible amounts of emphasis on your "Sure, sure."

GLENN: Read the emphasis on the sure, sure. Is there actually is that what they are saying?

STU: Yes. Hold on one second. Let me find it. It's on the story.

PAT: That is really

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me.

STU: When Diane Sawyer mentioned that Imam Rauf said that radicals are just a group of people and not him.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

STU: Beck seemed to agree saying, sure, sure, end quote.

PAT: That is their proof! She doesn't even say, this guy's a good Muslim. Don't you think so Glenn? That's not what he's responding.

GLENN: I would have said, I'm not sure, he seems like a nice guy. We just met. In two years we'll have absolutely no recollection.

PAT: Let's go back one more time.

IMAM RAUF: peaked in the first part of the 20th century against religion in general

PAT: One more time.

IMAM RAUF: and Islam as well as other traditions.

SAWYER: Do you feel these are over- reactions or appropriate reactions to these two events?

IMAM RAUF: I feel they are wrong reactions. These reactions were not at all called for by Islamic teachings. The teachings of Islam are very similar to the teachings of Christianity, of loving the one god and loving thy neighbor. These are the two carbon principles.

SAWYER: All right, let me talk to Glenn Beck because the Imam Rauf has said this is a group of people. This is not him, this is not all

PAT: Because the Imam Rauf has said this is a group of people.

SAWYER: This is just a group of people.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: You are agreeing this is just a group of people. In fact, Pat, if you let it roll, listen to the next sentence.

GLENN: I believe it's a small portion of Islam that is acting in these ways, but I believe that it is

STU: What a hate monger! What a hate monger?

GLENN: So in other words, I hate all Islam because I say it's a small percentage of Islam that is doing it and, sure, sure.

STU: Sure, sure.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

STU: Sure, sure.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

STU: Sure, sure, sure, sure.

GLENN: I endorse him wholly on everything he's done or said, even though I have no idea who this man is.

STU: This is what they have against you!

GLENN: Sure.

STU: Sure, sure.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: That is it. You've been caught twice in the past two weeks completely lying about this program.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: And then it comes down to when their big proof is "Sure, sure."

PAT: Well, and I love the headline. You've got to go to Huffington Post. I hate to drive traffic. So don't do this. But just trust us on this. It's in red. It's about an inch high.

GLENN: Is it on the front?

PAT: It's on the front. And it's, as soon as you come to HuffingtonPost.com, on tape, colon, Glenn Beck and the good Muslim Imam Rauf.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: Sure. you were saying

PAT: It is.

GLENN: Could you, could you imagine, can you imagine anything.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: If you tried to make this case on anything in real life.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Where, that was it.

STU: Sure, sure.

PAT: You guys have both become not just Muslims. You are imams now because you've said sure so many times. That's all it takes.

GLENN: This is unbelievable.

STU: Sure.

PAT: I wouldn't have believed it if

GLENN: Gang.

PAT: If we weren't experiencing this.

STU: When you are putting the word sure, comma, sure, period, in quotes, you have nothing!

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
