On AMERICAblog they are looking at the latest hateful garbage out of Glenn Becks mouth.
He is pretty consistent in espousing nasty ideas, and either ignoring their impact or claiming he is a funny funny man. If he isn't attacking ones Americana bonafides, he's ready to attack you another way.
Such as the fact you may, in fact, not be a real woman.
Okay, at what point is CNN going to tell this asshole to knock it off? CNN, you have a bigot as a host. Glenn Beck has attacked Muslims, women, gays, blacks, and now he's yet again going after gays. He just, moments ago, on the air, questioned whether Rosie O'Donnell is really a woman. Actually, he didn't question it at all - he pretty much suggested that she isn't a woman. Rosie is a lesbian and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what he meant - you know, lesbians aren't real women, they're actually men - at least according to CNN.Okay. If it was a one time comment, or genuinely rare, maybe I would be annoyed at the callous way he looks at and only espouses on people different from him. But week after week, this comes out of his mouth. Muslims need to prove they aren't terrorist, to his assurance. He can't have black friends, cause he may say something they just won't get. Lesbians aren't real women. This is a pattern. And CNN, and the sponsors who let their ads go to his show are supporting his ideas, or paying for him to be disturbed on the air 7 days of the week.
CNN has hired a bigot as one of their hosts, and they have been informed time and again about the hateful crap this guy is spewing on CNN's dime. It's time the network stopped acting like FOX News. Best Buy, among others, have supported this bigot for too long. Please visit Chris Achorn's blog and help put an end this to ridiculous exercise in hate.
Hard to figure which is worse and more crass.
Go to Media Matters for a run down of Glenn Beck's work.
