I just came across this and wanted to get it posted right away. On November 14, Glenn Beck of CNN interviewed Keith Ellison, newly elected to the House of Representatives and America's first Muslim in the Congress. The interview began like this:
BECK:…May we have five minutes here where we're just politically incorrect and I play the cards face up on the table?
ELLISON: Go there.
BECK: OK. No offense, and I know Muslims. I like Muslims. I've been to mosques. I really don't believe that Islam is a religion of evil. I — you know, I think it's being hijacked, quite frankly.
With that being said, you are a Democrat. You are saying, "Let's cut and run." And I have to tell you, I have been nervous about this interview with you, because what I feel like saying is, "Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies."
And I know you're not. I'm not accusing you of being an enemy, but that's the way I feel, and I think a lot of Americans will feel that way.
Hard to believe this guy is a journalist for CNN.
