It is obvious that Glenn Beck lives in a very isolated bubble and that if certain information and/or events do not happen to penetrate that bubble, then he is confident that such information and/or events do not exist.
This was perfectly demonstrated on his radio program today when he and his co-hosts had a discussion about Caitlyn Jenner’s gender transition and Beck absurdly proclaimed that nobody thinks it is a big deal and even conservatives have no problem with it.
“I wish you happiness,” Beck said. “I don’t hate Bruce or Caitlyn and I don’t know anybody who does. What’s so striking here is, if you’re a liberal, you would expect there to be a massive outrage, especially since he came out and said he was conservative … Have you heard any push back from any conservative? You didn’t hear any of that.”
This is laughable, especially since we have written several posts in just the last few days of Religious Right activists doing just that.
Bryan Fischer said Jenner’s transition is a sign that America is “morally corrupt” and on the verge of destruction, while Alex McFarland has called it “demonic” and Sandy Rios said it was “a human tragedy.” Michael Savage said that Jenner belongs in a straitjacket, and Beck’s good friend Ted Nugent said that Jenner was mentally ill and a “Bizzarro World Planet of the Apes over the cuckoos nest clockwork dayglo orange Mad Magazine spoof on life.”
Heck, even Dana Loesh, who hosts a show on Beck’s own network, made it very clear that she was “not welcoming Bruce Jenner into the sisterhood.”
If Beck has not heard “any of that” sort of talk about Jenner, it is only because he hasn’t been paying attention.
