Glenn Beck's take on things

Fox News host Glenn Beck has really stepped his crazy game up. I mean seriously, Glenn has been spouting out more right-wing fringe nonsense than Ann Coulter at a book signing. Beck is quickly becoming the voice for the underrepresented in the U.S.: the AR-15 toting, 2nd Amendment chanting, psycho class. Maybe it's because his new set design and his cool new logo have gone to his head or maybe it's because he actually is that crazy. Beck has been relentlessly attacking the President as of late calling him a radical and a communist. Beck has certainly stirred up a media shit storm over his recent comments on Fox and Friends. Beck said he believes Barack Obama is 'a racist' and has 'a deep-seated hatred for White people or white culture.' On his own 'show' Beck ranted, “Barack Obama did not campaign on openly changing the whole system… Based on the fact that (Obama) will not reject this man and others like him in this administration, I’m beginning to wonder. Didn’t Venezuela, didn’t Chavez… wasn’t he ‘democratically’ elected? I don’t believe he campaigned as a communist. But boy, things sure changed once he got into office. President Obama did leave telltale signs."


Here's some of his crazy in full effect.


Beck's antics have not gone unnoticed as the the folks over at colorofhange.org have lobbied advertisers to withdraw their ads from Beck's show. I'm not sure of how much lobbying had to be done as it seems Glenny boy doesn't need anyones help.
