Glenn Beck reacted to President Obama‘s big Syria address Tuesday night with sheer astonishment. He wondered how it isn’t just “treason” to be “aiding and abetting an enemy of the United States” (al-Qaeda), and said the really gut-wrenching part is how Obama asked the nation to do this on the eve of 9/11.
Some of the rebel groups in Syria have al-Qaeda ties, and people opposed to military action like Beck think degrading Assad would be the same as upgrading the rebel groups. Beck was absolutely floored by what Obama seemed to be asking.
“How are we seriously being asked to aid and abet the enemy of the United States of America? That’s impossible. And how is it possible––how dead inside does he think we are to ask us to go along with it on the eve of September 11th?”
Beck talked about the Million Muslim March being organized today, and then called on the nation to “stand up and start a peace movement.” He said it only hasn’t worked in the past “’cause you’ve given up!” On his show yesterday, Beck made it clear he is “against war” because he believes “it’s a progressive idea.”
He sighed, “Health care is one thing, but siding on the side of al-Qaeda and being asked to do it on the eve of September 11th is a whole different ballgame.”
