Glenn Beck’s total lack of self-awareness is truly awe-inspiring. On his show last week he criticized a Nebraska state senate candidate for associating with Grover Norquist who is “truly one of the most dangerous men supposedly on our side.” And he cautions that people ought to know all about the people they’re standing up with politically.
“Grover Norquist is truly one of the most dangerous men supposedly on our side,” Beck said. “He, I believe, is the George Soros shadowy figure who is not who you think he is.”
When co-host Pat Gray tried to play devil’s advocate and defend Osborn by saying maybe he only knew about Norquist’s anti-tax efforts and not all of the other “dangerous” stuff Norquist is supposedly doing, Beck wasn’t swayed.“You’re a senator,” Beck said of Osborn. “It’s your job to learn about these things, if that’s your job. If you’re going to be a senator, you had better learn about who the people are you’re standing next to! It’s your responsibility:”
Says the man who is constantly promoting unrepentant liar David Barton. And who claimed he doesn’t know any anti-gay conservatives while wearing a hat in tribute to Ken Hutcherson, one of the most virulently — and violently — anti-gay preachers in the country. Irony!
