Just when you thought that reactions from the wingnuts to the Isla Vista shooting spree couldn’t get any more bizarre, Glenn Beck steps up to the microphone and turns the bizarre into the surreal. He claims that the guy’s manifesto quoted Teddy Roosevelt almost verbatim.
As usual, Beck placed the blame squarely on Hollywood and video games … and progressives like Teddy Roosevelt.
Reading portions of Rodger’s “manifesto” in which he declared that women “should not have the right to choose who to mate and breed with” and should all be placed in concentration camps, Beck proclaimed that “that is almost an exact quote from Teddy Roosevelt.”
“It’s all the progressives, communists, fascists,” Beck said. “They’re the ones who talk like this … No small government person talks like this, no constitutionalist talks like this.”
