Beck: I Would Be ‘Uncomfortable’ With Muslim In My Administration (AUDIO)

(Huffington Post) Glenn Beck agreed with GOP candidate Herman Cain on his Tuesday show, saying that he would be uncomfortable having a Muslim in his administration. Cain has attracted attention for saying that he is worried about the spread of Sharia law in the U.S., and that he was worried that a Muslim might not be faithful to the Constitution. On Tuesday, Beck said he understood what Cain meant. “Do you feel comfortable in saying, ‘yeah, you know what? I’m not even going to check that guy on his stance on Sharia law,'” Beck said. He started to say that, although it wasn’t fair, he wouldn’t ask the same of a Catholic or a Baptist, but then backtracked, saying that, in fact, he might be “uncomfortable” with people from any faith, explaining, “I don’t trust anybody anymore.” However, Beck had a distinction to make. “Would I be more uncomfortable with a Muslim?” he asked. “Yes.” The reason for this, he said, was because Muslim rights group had “wildly deceived” Americans–though he didn’t say about what exactly. “And a Muslim is more likely to want Sharia law in America than any other religion,” Beck’s co-host said. Beck was quick to say that not all Muslims wanted Sharia law. “I have friends who are Muslim who are not for Sharia law,” he said. Beck has made controversial statements about Muslims in the past. He has said that around ten percent of Muslims are terrorists and that some want to bring about the Antichrist. And, in 2006, he famously asked Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison to “prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.”

    SOME NEWS FOR BECK:

    America has already started adopting “Shariah Law”.
    Examples:
    1-USA gave ‘blood money’ to families of victims killed by USA “diplomat” Raymond Davis in Lahore, Pakistan in February 2011.
    2-USA has accepted people like Kody Brown and his 4 wives on TLC reality show ‘Sister Wives’.

    I am sure a time will come, as it came in early 20th century: Prohibition on Alcohol.
    That will be another “Shariah Law”.

    Beck, dude you’re too late!

    The good thing about Beck? He won’t ever BE president to have an “administration” inshaa Allah.

    I can proudly say that I have completed more college than Glenn Beck has. 🙂

    “They believe Obama is a Muslim, and obviously, the world hasn’t gone apart. He even got Osama bin Laden!”

    They would probably ask, “yeah, but HOW did Obama find Bin Laden?! He must have used his Muslim detection powers that all Muslims have so they always know where to find each other!”

    I see Beck is toting the fear line again. Someone should tell him that his administration is about as likely to happen as Bugs Bunny’s. I remember hearing my parents talk about JFK when I was a kid, and how everyone thought because he was Catholic, our nation would be subverted to the Vatican. Obviously John served his country well, until he was muredered. It seems America has always had it’s share of boogeymen out to get them.

  • Jack

    Why are these loons uncomfortable with a Muslim in the government? They believe Obama is a Muslim, and obviously, the world hasn’t gone apart. He even got Osama bin Laden!

  • Khushboo

    on the contrary, Romney, a MORMOM, would allow anyone of any faith in his administration (according to NH GOP debate). So not all Mormons are bad. See how fair I can be?

    Newt, however, uses Faisal Shahzad as an excuse to ban all Muslims from his administration. Sickening I tell ya!

    Beck was quick to say that not all Muslims wanted Sharia law. “I have friends who are Muslim who are not for Sharia law,” he said.

    this is so typical…I know some white people used the same arguments….they make the most disgusting racist joke about black people and asians and the go “I am not racist or anything I have lots of black and asian freinds. but the fact is they have non

    Eh, that’s fair because I would be quite uncomfortable with Beck being anywhere NEAR my administration!

    > He has said that around ten percent of Muslims are terrorists and that
    > some want to bring about the Antichrist.

    Hahaha, classic. I mean I knew I liked death metal, but I wasn’t aware we were trying to conjure an Antichrist! This is all starting to feel like an episode of Metalocalypse!

  • KnowingTheTruth

    He always says that he has friends who are Muslims. Yeah right. That’s like me saying that I have a Mormon friend (Beck is Mormon but using his faith as a example)but I would be Uncomfortable if they are in my Administration. I mean would he not feel very upset by this type of comments?

    United States Constitution Article VI, paragraph 3,

    The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

    and person above is right If it was jews or blacks he would been fired … and yes 1 % of the American population the muslims can take over 99% of america… I guess for Beck Religious Law should not be allowed unless its his Christian Sharia…

    And I’ve come to the place where I believe that there’s no way to solve these problems, these issues – there’s nothing that we can do that will solve the problems that we have and keep the peace, unless we solve it through God, unless we solve it in being our highest self. And that’s a pretty tall order.

    Not a single time have we gotten a right from Congress or from the President. We get them from God.

    LOl and I love this one from this hypocrite

    Let me go over this again on the reclaiming the civil rights movement. People of faith that believe that you have an equal right to justice – that is the essence. And if it’s not the essence, then we’ve been sold a pack of lies. The essence is everyone deserves a shot – the content of character, not the color of skin.

    If it was “black” “Jewish” or “gay” replacing “Muslims”, then there would’ve been an uproar and Cain and Beck would’ve apologized and dismissed right away. What I want to know is why no one in the media including my faves, Jon Stewart and Colbert not talking about this?! I want to know why we Muslims are so friggin passive about this! Why is there no uproar?! why are we not angry enough?! Are we trying to prove that we’re too peaceful to even protest?! We’re too damn quiet about this, aside from LW ofcourse. 🙁

  • And my fave comment from Huffpost r.e. “I have friends who are Muslim who are not for Sharia law,”:

    “Don’t lie, Beck, you have no friends.”

    Classic 😉

  • “Glenn Beck agreed with GOP candidate Herman Cain on his Tuesday show, saying that he would be uncomfortable having a Muslim in his administration.”

    Sorry Mr Beck but why are you thinking this way? You consider that you’d actually be able to *get* anywhere near the White House? You seriously think that people would vote for you? Dream on matey and stick to the ranting.

  • Abdullah67

    I like his classic patchwork Ralph Lauren sweater.…That’s the only nice thing I have to say about this man.

  • Nur Alia

    Probably good not to vote for people like this man…but as we look on, many people…out of fear, vote against common sence, logic, reason, and thier own best interests.

    Beck was quick to say that not all Muslims wanted Sharia law. “I have friends who are Muslim who are not for Sharia law,” he said.

    By “friend” he probably means Zuhdi Jasser, a neoconservative who allies himself with loons against 99.99% of the world’s Muslim. Unfortunately Jasser is serving as a token Muslim and is being purported as the “ideal Muslim” by Republicans notwithstanding the obvious opinions of most Muslims. Nonetheless, the good folks over at JihadWatch, telling from their comments, believe he’s performing “taqiyya.”

  • If he ever became any kind of political leader, hence; having an administration, then there is clearly no hope for America.

  • Al

    I’d listen to the link, but Becks rancorous hate talk would liquify my brain…
