Glenn Beck on KSM and Jimmy Carter

BECK: You know Khalid Shaikh Mohammed has confessed to 9-11 and trying to kill President Carter. Why would you try to kill President Carter? He’s on your side, for the love of Pete.

Those are Glenn Beck’s thoughts about KSM and his boast that he was going too assassinate Carter. You can just smell the disappointment in Beck’s words that KSM didn’t manage to go through this plot. When this bit of news came out, conservative bloggers were also disappointed that KSM didn’t go through with this plot.

Instead of realizing that these terrorists don’t really care which Americans they kill, and as such, are not aligned with any Americans, especially not a former president, people like Glenn Beck continue pressing the vitriolic and of course incorrect point that terrorists and liberals are fighting on the same side. How childish. As Glenn Greenwald states:

Revelations that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed planned assassination plots against former Presidents Carter and Clinton — especially Carter — are causing great confusion among right-wing Civilization Warriors. After all, as John Hinderaker previously pointed out: “Jimmy Carter isn’t just misguided or ill-informed. He’s on the other side.”

Michelle Malkin’s Hot Air expressed this confusion: “[Mohammed] confessed to 29 plots in all, including the Richard Reid shoebomb plot and planned assassinations of the pope and . . . Jimmy Carter?” These extremists come to believe their twisted rhetoric that Democrats are on the side of Al Qaeda and so they literally can’t understand why Mohammed would want to assassinate his own allies like President Carter.

  1. […] I read The Good Democrat today and he had a great post on the far-right wing’s disgusting reaction to Khalid Shaikh Mohammed’s confession […]

  2. Dan, What makes these comments all the more morally reprehensible, vitriolic, asinine or pick your adjective, is the fact Glenn Beck claims to commune with the body of saints. These comments are so antithetical to the Gospel of Christ, that I am ashamed he claims membership in the same Church. Glenn Beck, you are a disgrace, not very far removed from Ann Coulter! Thanks for this post.

  3. Ick. I just wish both sides would stop that kind of crap.
