On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck delivered a passionate monologue over the plight of Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who is facing execution for refusing to renounce her Christian faith and convert to Islam.
Beck is furious that the United States government is not doing enough to rescue Ibrahim, who is the wife of an American citizen as well as a new mother, declaring that this nation has gone “so dead inside” that it is now becoming “a badge of global and possibly eternal dishonor” to be an American citizen.
“What is it that you believe in?” Beck challenged his audience, telling them that they had better figure it out because the days of being beaten and locked in prison are already upon them.
“If you don’t feel it yet, you will very soon,” he said. “You’re going to be thrown up against the wall and thrown up against the wall and thrown up against the wall, you might even get a billy club to the head, they might open up a fire hose on ya. If you’re lucky they’ll sic the dogs on ya. You might find yourself going into a camp, you might find yourself chained to a floor, you might find yourself being told ‘you must do this, you must say these things or not say these things and we’ll just leave you alone.’ And if you think I’m crazy, read the newspaper. It’s happening already”:
