Were Obama’s remarks treasonous?

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted with mounting frustration to President Obama’s highly anticipated speech on the conflict in Syria. After last night’s address, which came on the eve of the anniversary of the deadliest terror attacks on U.S. soil, Glenn found himself questioning what has happened to this nation in the last 12 years.

“I remember how many of us used to have bumper stickers on our car that said never forget, yet last night the President of the United States asked this country to back military action where our coalition would be made up of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda,” Glenn said. “Never forget. Would we have allowed ourselves to fight in Japan with the Nazis? The reason why we have forgotten is we are not allowed to say the truth anymore. The truth is Islamic extremism is our enemy. The truth is Al Qaeda is our enemy. The truth is September 11th was done by 19 hijackers, all of them on jihad. Jihad is not a peaceful struggle within. Jihad, as it is defined in today's Middle Eastern world and in many of the mosques here in America, means ‘kill.’”

After much thought, “arrogant” was the only word Glenn could muster to describe the President’s speech. “To look at the American people as such sheep and dummies, to think that we could digest his speech as a body politic today on the day of September 11th, and come up with anything other than this guy is asking us to really commit suicide or treason…” he said. “We are being asked to throw in with Al Qaeda on September 11th. It’s the height of arrogance.”

It is incredible to think that nearly 12 years to the day after the September 11 terrorist attacks, President Obama would openly acknowledge some of the rebels were indeed extremists from terror groups such as Al Qaeda. And he doubled down in his rhetoric that we would be working alongside these groups, not against them. It was that disturbing connection that lead Glenn to question whether the President is suicidal or treasonous.

“Somebody should get the dictionary out for ‘treason,’ because I’m pretty sure there has to be several witnesses to someone aiding and abetting the enemy of the United States,” Glenn said. “They keep telling us that Islam is not our enemy, that it is Al Qaeda… [then] how are we seriously being asked to aid and abet the enemy of the United States of America? How is that possible?”

“Which side do you stand on? And what are you willing to do,” he continued. “Are you willing to stand up and start a peace movement? Are you willing to stand up and say ‘Enough is enough’? I know we’ve done it before and you don’t think that it works, but the only reason why it doesn’t work is because you’ve given up!”

“Healthcare is one thing,” Glenn concluded. “But siding on the side of Al Qaeda — and being asked to do it on the eve of September 11th — is a whole different ball game,” he concluded.

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.
