“I don’t believe that we should lump any group all into one thing. Uh, you know, to say that ‘all Muslims are terrorists’ [is] absolutely wrong. But for me to feel like I have to say that to remain out of trouble is equally as wrong.”
Glenn Beck, Radio, 6-4-13 H1
For the linguistically challenged, Beck is saying ppl shouldn’t have to say “Not all Muslims are Terrorists” every moment of every day for ever and ever, as the only way not to be dragged through the mud as if they’d said the opposite.
Of course he spent years saying it like a mantra and was still slandered as if he’d been saying the opposite all along.

“It’s completely unbelievable to me that this guy has a six percent approval rating let alone forty five or forty six. I mean, this guy has lied over and over again, and we re-elected him. And it’s not that people look at this evidence and say, ‘you know what? all things being equal, this guy has been a good president and a good guy’, it’s just they haven’t even considered these audio clips. They don’t know the stories, they don’t care enough to know them, and that’s why this country is doomed…
Throw out the hardcore Obama supporter which obviously there’s a lot of mindless partisans in the world, on both sides, but go to this, Mitt Romney beat Barrack Obama by five points among independents in the election. Independent voters, they went for Romney 50 to 45. So take those 45% that theoretically could be winnable and they went out and they had to become interested as if it was, you know, the finally of ‘The Voice’. And they sat there and they said, here we go, I’m gonna play you clip after clip and play the evidence, read the evidence, nothing partisan, just present them with that information. You’d have to believe that ‘okay, I had not heard a lot of that and thinking about it I still don’t like Mitt Romney but I can’t vote for this guy’. You have to believe that if people were educated and cared, and it’s not even the media as much on this one, it’s just that people don’t give an expletive, they just don’t freaking care. They have other things going on. And we’ve talked about this before when certain pop culture events happen, that w’ere not in tune with. Like you know, the finally of the voice, or the bachelor finale, or… [Iron Chef] even the show that Glenn mentioned that uh Duck Dynasty There’re people around this office that live for that show. I’ve never seen an episode of it, and I’m completely disconnected about it. And I don’t know could be a great show could be a horrible show, I’ve heard great things about it. You talk about Iron Chef… I’ve never watched that show, I’m completely disconnected with that world. That’s how millions and millions of people are with the actual world… With the policies that decide how much money is removed from their paycheck, they can’t find themselves motivated enough, [Pat: and how much freedom] they can’t find themselves motivated enough to learn anything about these topics… And when these guys [like David Ploufe & Axlerod] come out and they criticize people, ‘talk radio, talk radio, these guys are conspiracy theorists, talk radio’, these are people [on talk radio] that are dedicating 15, 30, 45 hours a week to listen to discussion about important topics in politics and in the news. These are people that dedicate full time jobs of their life, the equivalent of a full time job to sit here and dissect these issues. You might not like the way that they end up with them [their conclusions]. But the reason why liberal talk radio has never been successful is they don’t have those people, in any number. They don’t have enough people that care enough to sit around for 15 hours a week to listen to these topics being dissected. They’re in and out, they listen for 5 seconds they read one article and they’re gone. They don’t want long form discussion because when you get to long form discussion with liberal issues they fall apart. They’re not interested. So you can be critical of conservatives all you want but they’re actually present for hours and hours and hours and hours every week trying to find the correct answers. And that’s why when you poll these people you find out they have much more knowledge about these issues, than on the other side, it’s why it happens over and over and over again.”

I haven’t seen this quote in FOREVER.
This is not what he said I will never believe it of COURSE no sources given
The 19th bullet point on “The Obama-Biden Plan”
Protect Whistleblowers: Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.

“There seems to be something liberating about ignorance and inexperience. You are free to believe whatever you want to, unencumbered by hard facts, and, if you have political power, to impose your headstrong ignorance on those with firsthand knowledge.”
