As part of his new wingnut paradise in Texas, Glenn Beck says he wants to change the way we celebrate the 4th of July, starting this year. No more fireworks, hot dogs, beer or Bruce Springsteen. Because he hates America, unlike Glenn Beck, who loves America and is a Brave Purveyor of Truth.
Yeah! Bruce Springsteen hates America! That’s why he wrote Born in the USA, a song about a Vietnam vet who returns home to be mistreated and struggle to find work. Pointing out the mistreatment of Vietnam vets? Why do you hate America, Bruce?
You should watch this video, too, in which Beck explains his plans for the 4th of July in more detail. It includes some sort of production called The Man in the Moon: An American Story (From the Moon’s Perspective). Listening to him talk about is really kind of creepy.
