Here's Glenn Beck last Thursday:
The conservative pundit Glenn Beck took the lectern at a conference center on Manhattan's East Side last Thursday to accept the Freedom of Speech Award for his commentary on TheBlaze television network and his syndicated radio show....Here's Glenn Beck last Friday:
"They're doing some scary things in our country right now," Mr. Beck told the crowd. "They were started by Republicans and they’re being furthered by the Democrats."
As reports continue to flood in about President Obama's massive surveillance state, media powerhouse Glenn Beck says, "There wouldn't be a Jew alive on the planet today if Hitler had this technology."Here's Glenn Beck in his 2009 book Arguing with Idiots (page 289):
Beck made the statement Friday on his radio program while interviewing NSA whistleblower William Binney....
"I'm telling you, America," Beck cautioned, "If we don't stop this right now, we will be remembered as the most evil nation in history of the world. We will dwarf what Germany did. And I'd say that if Mitt Romney were in office and this were happening. I would be saying exactly the same thing."
If you can't read that, here's the text:
At this point, your idiot friend is likely screaming, "George Bush's warrantless wiretapping program!" I don't know of a single American citizen (who's never had a conversation with an Osama wannabe in some musty cave in Pakistan) that is actually affected by this program ... and neither does your idiot friend. Oh, and by the way, Barack Obama has not only defended the Bush program, he's broadened the government's legal argument for it.Love the cartoon of a stupidly grinning Beck with headphones on.* Oh yeah, I totally believe he'd have been all up in Mitt's face if Mitt had tried any of this.
*Yeah, tmc in comments is right -- that's Bush, not Beck.
