10 Reasons Glenn Beck Should Get Off the Air and Never Come Back
Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email.
1 ) Over thirty companies have stopped running ads on the Glenn Beck show due to his racist statements.
2 ) Beck once aspired to be a top 40 radio DJ (snort).
3 ) He Relayed this message to a 7-year-old girl who wrote a poem about white nationalism: “You want to go to Africa? I will personally purchase your airfare. I’ll do it. It’s one-way. You have to sign a contract that you will never return to the United States.”
4 ) He endangers the eardrums of listeners. Hear for yourself – if you dare. Pay close attention to his astounding vocabulary and turn down the volume to prevent damage.
5 ) He posted this video about his butt surgery that Jason Linkins at The Huffington Post described as a “video in the style of the Blair Witch Project about how he had scary drugged-up visions that left him angry that the people who treated him at the hospital did not give him the rich-person compassion that he felt he deserved.”
6 ) He compared “the American people that feel disenfranchised right now” (white males) to a mass murderer, and implied that they were being silenced by “political correctness”. He suggested that they would resort to violence, because they were being “pushed to the wall”.
7 ) He said that antiwar protester Cindy Sheehan is “pimping out the tragedy of her own son’s death for her own agenda.” and also “That’s a pretty big prostitute.”
8 ) He’s an anti-immigrant bigot. He suggested that Obama is burning down the country by trying to repair the immigration system. He pretended to be the President in a skit in which he douses an actor with gas-can contents and lights a match. He also regularly refers to immigrants as criminals and with derogatory terms.
9 ) Beck started the 9/12 Project, a shameful exploitation of the 9/11 tragedy. Maybe he forgot that back in 2005 he said, “I didn’t think I could hate victims faster than the 9-11 victims.”
10 ) He called the first African-American President racist. Need I say more?
