SiriusXM hosts Stephen Bannon and David Webb announced on Breitbart News Daily that SiriusXM has suspended Glenn Beck from his 9AM to noon Eastern time slot on the network’s Patriot Channel 125.
Why did Sirius XM suspend Glenn Beck now? Because of what was implied should be done to Donald Trump if he were elected president in an interview with fiction author Brad Thor.
Here’s the report from Breitbart.com:
“The suspension is in response to the interview Beck did… in which Thor likened the GOP’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump to a South American-style dictator who would cause an”extinction-level event” for the country if elected. Thor then declared that in such a case, Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by “legal means” through impeachment…
“Here’s the exchange:
“THOR: He is a danger to America and I got to ask you a question and this is serious and this could ring down incredible heat on me because I’m about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.
“… who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if he oversteps his constitutional-granted authority… as President.
“If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out office because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.
“BECK: I would agree with you on that and I don’t think you actually have the voices we’ve been talking about and we’ve been talking about this off-air for a while.”
While Beck and Thor didn’t directly say that Trump should be assassinated, they definitely hinted at it. Even for Glenn Beck, this is one of (if not the) craziest thing he’s endorsed.
It seems odd that conservatives like Beck seem to hate Donald Trump more than they hate Barack Obama. And to our knowledge, no one has suggested that Obama should be killed. Although Trump is far from a perfect Constitutional conservative, it makes us wonder why all these people across the political spectrum – and especially self-proclaimed conservatives – are opposed to his candidacy.
Do you agree with SiriusXM’s response to Glenn Beck’s latest zany remarks?
