Yes, this is how you encourage moderate Muslims to participate in the political process

This kind of shit is unbelievable, but pretty much par for the course these days:
On the November 14 edition of his CNN Headline News program, Glenn Beck interviewed Rep.-elect Keith Ellison (D-MN), who became the first Muslim ever elected to Congress on November 7, and asked Ellison if he could "have five minutes here where we're just politically incorrect and I play the cards up on the table." After Ellison agreed, Beck said: "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.'"

Errm... burden of proof is on whom....?

Geez, some people should have their citizenship revoked for asking stupid questions.

You have to watch the whole clip posted at that link. Beck comes across as even more of an asshole. The quote you posted actually makes him seem smarter than he is.

Please: No discussions about revoking citizenship. Makes me queasy.

Beck has the right to be an idiot, and I have the right to rail against him in obscurity.

God Bless America.
