Glenn Beck on Wednesday offered to fly Amy Nicholson of LA Weekly to his Dallas studios first class if she will read the review she wrote of “Lone Survivor” in the presence of former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, on whom the film is based.
In her article, Nicholson describes “Lone Survivor” as an embellished “jingoistic snuff film” with an attitude of “brown people bad, American people good.” She also claims the SEALs only faced around 10 enemy Taliban fighters, and seems to belittle the fact that Patrick Robinson helped write the book on which the film is based, because Luttrell was serving another tour of duty.
In addition to calling her a “vile, repugnant, and ignorant liar,” Beck took issue with the film critic’s “sanctimonious” attitude that somehow writing a book is more important than actually “living the story.”
“I mean this sincerely – I will fly you first class,” Beck said. “I will put you up at the Four Seasons … You will dine on the finest possible food, and you will come in here and you will sit down and speak these words to Marcus Luttrell. If you have the balls to say what you just said to Marcus Luttrell and back it up, go for it.”
But the multimedia personality predicted that the “coward” of an author will “hide” behind her cherished word processor while “people like Marcus Luttrell are out doing real things.”

Want to see your tax dollars promoting Islam and giving Muslims at an Islamic school in New York an opportunity to complain that other people don’t understand them, don’t respect them and discriminate against them in restaurants?
Oh, and you’ll also learn that Islam gave women rights in the 7th century that women in the West had to live without until the 19th and 20th centuries.
Just tune in to the multimedia page at the website for the Women’s Rights National Historical Park.
The Schenectady, N.Y, attraction is a part of the National Park Service. It highlights the campaign for women’s rights and has created a series of at least three videos with students from the local AnNur Islamic School.
The videos provide a forum for students to boast about Islam and complain about how they are treated. The students also express their beliefs about their own behavior and conduct.
And there’s the mention of women’s rights.
Says one student on camera: “People think that Islam oppresses women and there’s no equality, but they’re wrong – there’s equity … 7th century A.D. Islam gave women the right to be involved in politics, the right to earn and keep her own money.”
The student said Islam “gave women the right to work outside of the home, Islam gave women the right to own property, Islam gave women the right to divorce, Islam gave women the right to choose who she marries.”
“Islam gave women a whole bunch of rights that Western women acquired later in the 19th and 20th centuries, and we’ve had these rights since the 7th century A.D., and it’s just not acknowledged worldwide,” he declared.

On his TV show Thursday, Glenn Beck urged viewers to speak up and stand up when they see evil — these days, he said, the “evil detector” of too many people seems to be malfunctioning.
Beck began by playing Ann Curry’s interview with Iran’s newly-elected president, Hassan Rouhani, where the man responds to a question about whether the Holocaust occurred by noncommittally saying he is a politician, not a historian.
“He couldn’t bring himself to comment on the Holocaust being a ‘myth,’ and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out exactly what he means. He is a Holocaust denier,” Beck said. “President Obama, however, he sees a future with this guy. In fact, he sees a future pen pal! He’s actually exchanging letters with this man.”
Beck then played video of the president in an interview with George Stephanopolous, where the president said they haven’t spoken directly, but have communicated through “letters.”
“Love letters to Holocaust-denying dictators doesn’t really cut it for me,” Beck reflected. “I don’t think it cuts against the evil that is rising all over Europe, the Middle East, here in America.”

A Florida public servant may be disciplined for posting a message critical of Islam on his personal Facebook page, a county official said this week.
“Never forget. There is no such thing as radical Islam. All Islam is radical. There may be Muslims who don’t practice their religion, much like others. The Quran is a book that preaches hate,” the message said, according to WPTV.
Weisman said that if Jamason were not a “merit system employee who is protected by State law from arbitrary termination” he may have been fired by now.
“If he was an at-will employee, for which I do have more discretion, I would be considering his termination today for the ignorance of his comments and that they are hurtful to part of our community,” Weisman told WPTV.
Jamason, however, has adamantly defended his comments.
“If I owe anybody an apology, it would be the county commissioners and county administration just for the fact that you’re all on my porch. No, I don’t think I owe anybody an apology, I didn’t say anything offensive, ” he reportedly said.
