Umm, He has had a radio talk show LONG before he did his CNN show. The dude is a fricken genious

You should listen to his talkshow, its very informative and funny

I don't see anything wrong with his question

He ranks up there with Mark Levin, who is one of my heros.

I think it was a legit on PC question that he had previously cleared. Many Americans are scared of anyone that looks middle eastern. . . . so, why not ask it?

the fact that the great state of Minnesota elected him to United States Congress isn't enough proof that he's not a terrorist?

ok...

He was backed and financed by The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). An organization known to have ties to Hamas.

Do a google search on CAIR, here's a starting point for you....

I'm not saying he is or isn't a terrorist, but it was a reasonable question to ask.

And at the beginning of the interview, Glenn asked him up front if he could ask a "politcally incorrect question" and the terrorist said "go ahead, ask anything"

And on another point I think it would have been in the same lines as asking a Irish Congress man if he was drunk if this was the late 1800s early 1900s since that was the sterotype at the time just as Muslims are always terrorist is the sterotype today and he's also right that they should prove that they are not all terrorist or get labelled as a terrorist.

People are stupid and you have to prove things to dumb people even if there is no justification for it.

ok, so what's this guy supposed to say in 30 seconds that's gonna prove to all these racist morons who assume he's a terrorist because he's muslim? This question was rediculous.

Keith thinks so too.

assuming everyone who is muslim is a terrorist is a racist narrow minded thing to do.

i dont think glen beck thinks he is gonna go suicide bomb a bus station or the captial. I think its reasonable to be on the lookout. Lots of folks cant win so they join the club, or they change the name (see my commies masquerading as liberal ). When hoffa was being prosecuted or investigated he tried to get buddies elected in the government to stiffle investigations and prosecution.

Whats so crazy to think terrorist groups would want to infiltrate our highest offices ?????? By any means neccessary like buying politicans. If politicans are for sale (which many are) muslim terror dollars buys you power and influence just like defense company dollars, pharmecutical, or trial lawyers money, insurance company!! Its all the same. What ever it takes to get ellected.

Your racist comment is as out of line as any. Its a relgious not a race thing .... unless you believe all blacks are muslim !?

I don't have a problem with him asking that. I think he made it pretty clear that he didn't think that the guy was a terrorist but was just asking the question that he felt was on may peoples minds. And he didn't seem to have a problem being asked that.
