Hate-Monger-In-Chief Glenn Beck: America Should Not Be OK With Smearing

Reported by Ellen - February 2, 2010 -

I don’t know about you, but I found it pretty darned funny that a guy like Glenn Beck would be complaining about anyone else “tearing people apart without evidence, without any kind of substance, something that they did in their past… I don’t think America should be OK with that.” Beck was talking about President Obama - or was it the Democrats? But what was even funnier was that immediately after saying that, Beck went on to attack Bill Ayers over his past. With video.

Yesterday (2/1/10), at about 2:30 in the video below, Beck began railing about an Obama program that would offer kids internships. “I want you to know… If my kid is going in to be an intern for a campaign, and it teaches them about civics, duty, honor, standing up for things that are principled, learn more about our country and its founding, that’s great. But if you’re teaching my kid that the ends justify the means, that tearing people apart without evidence, without any kind of substance, something that they did in their past, if you think that’s OK, just smear ‘em to get elected, as long as you win, I don’t think America should be OK with that.”

Beck didn’t seem to notice how foolish he looked as he immediately segued from there into doing what he had just complained about. His target of the moment was Bill Ayers, but it could have been Robert Creamer or Van Jones or Anita Dunn, each of whom have been smeared by Beck, torn apart without any substantive evidence, other than something they did or said in the past, for the sake of Beck’s television histrionics. Ayers, Beck now complained, “never apologized for the bombing of the Pentagon. In fact, he said he didn’t do enough and is currently working in education.” Beck neglected to mention that Ayers has been living a perfectly respectable life for about 30 years. That's about twice as long as Beck has been sober.

Maybe Ayers isn’t anyone Beck wants to have dinner with but at least Ayers doesn’t spend his days hate mongering and fear mongering for profit.

“The government is training radicals instead of educating children,” Beck alleged, without offering any real proof other than a few inflammatory snippets he glued together with insinuations. Then, after playing two clips of school children praising our president, Beck said, in all seriousness, “Our children are not being trained to be responsible citizens, but campaign workers for a political icon and ideology.”
