It's a rare day indeed that Glenn will agree with something on MSNBC, especially from hosts Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz. But apparently the psychotic Islam practiced by the Islamic State can make the strangest of bedfellows find common ground.
On MSNBC, Chris Matthews said, "We can't see people kill like this in our face and simply flip to the sports page or the financial news or what's at the movies or who will win the Oscars and act like America, our country, is not being morally humiliated. Because it is. And with the lives of some of these people, who must in their last moments be wondering if there's any chance the people of the United States could be coming to their rescue. Because that's how they were rightly taught we conduct ourselves."
While Glenn didn't totally agree with Matthews, he did think it indicates the beginning of a new tone in America.
"When[Chris Matthews is] starting to sound more like a hawk than me, we have a sea change beginning," Glenn said. "I disagree with him. We're being morally humiliated. I don't really care about our humiliation. I don't care about our national pride anymore...The only thing that I care about is being consistent with our principles. Finding our principles again."
Meanwhile, Ed Schultz said, "I think this act of mass murder amounts to a religious war. Now, we all have our own interpretations at this point. This continues to go on. At this point, these people -- we're targeted, as I see it, and murdered because of their faith....The United States will have to have a continual reviewal of a strategy. We can't sit back here and watch hoards of people gettheir heads cut off. And why would we tell ISIS that there's no way we would ever put ground troops in combat situations? I think it has reached a point where we really have to have a strong debate in this country."
"I'm sure tomorrow he will say the exact opposite because somebody from the administration will have called," Pat said.
But today, at least, the left hasn't totally buried their heads in the sand.
Glenn, however, warned that we should not be rushing to war.
"What I'm suggesting is, you don't listen to people like Ed Schultz. You don't listen to people like the president of the United States. You don't listen to anybody who is saying, rush to war," Glenn said.
"You take a deep breath. And you really pray about it and think about it and understand that what is coming will indeed change the entire world. The world will not look the same. It will be vastly different with vastly different borders, vastly different superpowers and vastly different spoils in the next ten years. Because of the decisions that are being made today, the entire world will reorganize," he said.
