Glenn Beck once had promise.
No, obviously we’re referencing his impressive promise on the Far-Right. That is where the money is really made. The Right-Wing will pay in gold bricks with silicon bitcoin melted in for what they already know. Glenn Beck was looking at big money. Something happened somewhere along the way and we couldn’t possibly care less what it might have been.
Back when he had promise, we’re talking 2009, he demonstrated that promise by calling President Obama a racist. That took some brass because Obama was the most popular man on Earth at the time. The proof was on display for all to see, the Nobel Prize would soon give the United States to the United States for having the good sense to elect a Democrat Obama over another Republican war tyrant. They awarded it to Obama himself in care of about 70 million voters.
Anyway, we’re off-topic. Back then, Beck said:
“This president, I think, has exposed himself as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture… This guy is, I believe, a racist.”
The blowback was pretty serious, what with it being 2009 and all, and the MAGA movement was nothing more than the Tea Party’s newlywed’s plans.
On Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson demonstrated – again – his intense concern that the white American male is the most oppressed group in any nation anywhere. He had Glenn Beck on so that they could commiserate together. Clearly, the evidence is… well, clearer… in their mind than in 2009. Tucker remembered those innocent times:
“You said it, people became completely hysterical, but I thought that was a deep insight.” Oh, please to be fcking off now, Tucker.
Beck might have recalled that promise momentarily, missing those hundreds of millions on which he’d planned and then regathered his thoughts regarding President Obama: “I take my apology back! I was exactly right!”
“And I even stated it right. You are a racist if you believe in critical race theory, if you think that what Dr. Martin Luther King said, that envisions a country that is seeing people for the content of their character, not their color, if you think that’s wrong, then yes, you are a racist.
Shut. Your. Mouth. Obama said that much of the Right-Wing news was set up to scare the living witness out of terrified white people. (Paraphrasing, obviously). We are actually shocked that they didn’t compliment Obama for getting it exactly right. They proudly do put cameras on themselves every night to do exactly what Obama said and they’re paid handsomely for it.
Jesus, these people.
