Just because Glenn Beck isn’t on Fox anymore doesn’t mean he’s any more sane. In a beret and with a bad French accent, the conservative radio host showed off a jar of his own urine (at least he says it is), with a little Obama toy inside.
Beck has put his artwork up for sale for $25,000 and if it sells, he says he’s going to do another with Michelle Obama.
First, I’m sure that some of you are going to bitch about putting Anders Behring Breivik and Glenn Beck in the same headline, but he did it to himself. Earlier today, the attorney of Anders Breivik said that his client was “surprised” that he was so successful in killing 80-some people in his terrorist rampage, and yesterday, Glenn Beck went all Godwin (again) on his radio show.
Last year, Glenn Beck has a pretty successful “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington DC, and as a follow-up, the new messiah of the right wing airwaves is planning a “Restoring Courage” rally in Israel in August of this year. Be prepared for self-righteous messianic hyperbole and craziness of biblical proportions.
Glenn Beck: Google is out to help overthrow dictators and install democracy in the Middle East… and this is a bad thing
Okay, I know I shouldn’t be giving Glenn Beck the time of day, let alone column space, considering that he’s just an entertainer, a rodeo clown that gets paid a shit ton of money to crank the crazy of his on-air persona to 11, making whatever completely outlandish, nonsensical and contradictory statements that will get him and Fox News attention. That being said, it’s still hard to let this one slide— his disparaging “accusation” that Russia, the US government and Google are all in cohoots to foment the recent uprisings against Middle Eastern dictators in favor of democracy. But somehow this is a bad thing.
