Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Glenn Beck
There can be no better demonstration of Glenn Beck's raging hypocrisy than the perfect example he inadvertently provided on his television program last night.
Extremely disturbed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's statement that "extreme conservatives ... have no place in the state of New York," Beck dedicated his entire opening monologue last night to warning that this is just the sort of rhetoric that led to the Holocaust and declaring that "if this is the way that America is going, then I renounce my citizenship."
"If this is what America is going to become," Beck said, "I don't want to be an American any more":
During his monologue, Beck said that it is never right to banish a group of people simply based on what they believe and that any leader who suggest doing so ought to be widely denounced by people on all sides of the political spectrum.
So, of course, Beck followed up that passionate monologue with a segment in which he interviewed none other than John Hagee, who has declared on multiple occasions that atheists are not wanted in America and should get on a plane and leave the country:
After spending his entire twenty minute monologue decrying those who say that people holding certain beliefs are not welcome in America, Beck then sat down to interview a man who has, on multiple occasions, done the very thing he just spent his entire monologue denouncing and Beck said nothing ... other than strongly encouraging his viewers to donate to Hagee's organization.
