Leave it to Glenn Beck, super genius, to find a conspiracy in the current controversy over the Washington Redskins mascot. It’s all because Dan Snyder, the owner of the Redskins, donates a lot of money to Republican causes and candidates. And the fact that nearly all NFL owners do that is just the kind of “fact” that a liberal socialist Muslim Kenyan like you would throw out to cast doubt upon his brilliant theory.
When Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere discovered that 97% of the donations made by people affiliated with the Washington Redskins went to the GOP, they knew immediately that this was the reason the team is currently at the center of a debate over whether the term “Redskins” is offensive.
“Oh my gosh!” Beck marveled. “Follow the money.”
“I will bet you that is to send a message,” he said, claiming that the Redskins are being tortured and having their right to free speech violated by vindictive political operatives.
I bet George Soros is behind the whole thing. And Saul Alinsky too, even though he’s dead.
