Glenn Beck Jokes About Killing Buyers of Blagojevich Book
Reported by Ellen - March 2, 2009 -
In today's "The One Thing," the editorial that opens his show, Glenn Beck joked about killing anyone who buys Rod Blagojevich's upcoming book. I know it's common to say metaphorically, "I'll kill so-and-so." But Beck said, "I swear to God, if you buy that book, I'm going to hunt you down and kill you like a dog. I mean it." With video.
Unfortunately, my recorder missed that segment, but FOX News has posted it for posterity. In the video below, it occurs where the video indicates about 3:53 left.
Beck said, "Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich lands a six figure book deal. I swear to God, if you buy that book, I'm going to hunt you down and kill you like a dog. I mean it! What are you doing? Why would you buy his book?"
Comment: I also know it's common, when you think someone's behavior is over the top, that you think that individual is sick, but I really believe that Beck is a mentally ill person.
Later in the show, Beck said that Obama's proposed tax change "involves enslaving people."
