This is viewer supported news

Earlier in the program we heard about how a federal judge has denied New York City activists a march permit for the massive, worldwide mobilization on February 5th.

Right now we’re going to hear another story of dissent denied.

Last week, peace activist Jeremy M. Glick appeared on the live Fox News show 'The O'Reilly Factor’.

Jeremy Glick lost his father in the World Trade Center on September 11. He is one of 40,000 people who have signed the Not in Our Name 'Statement of Conscience.' An excerpt from the statement reads:

"President Bush has declared: ’you’re either with us or against us.’ Here is our answer: We refuse to allow you to speak for all the American people. We will not give up our right to question. We will not hand over our consciences in return for a hollow promise of safety. We say NOT IN OUR NAME. We refuse to be party to these wars and we repudiate any inference that they are being waged in our name or for our welfare. We extend a hand to those around the world suffering from these policies; we will show our solidarity in word and deed."

Media personality Bill O’Reilly has referred to the signers of the Statement as "anti-American" and has said they should be "held accountable" for the expression of their dissenting opinion.

On the live interview, O’Reilly verbally attacked Glick. Then he cut short the interview, and then threatened Glick with physical violence.

Tape:

  • Jeremy Glick on the O’Reilly Factor.

Guest:

  • Jeremy Glick, signatory of the Not In Our Name statement, a member of Peaceful Tomorrows and editor of Another World Is Possible.
