Probably fake.  Sorry, Glenn Beck would not defend a Gay/Lesbian person to save his OWN life.

Glenn Beck sat down with S.E. Cupp

"I said on the air this week, I will stand with GLAAD," continued Beck. "I will stand with anybody who will stand up and say that's crazy. That's dangerous. That's hetero-fascism. That's what that is. And we're talking about Duck Dynasty. Really? Really?"

I can't even wrap my head around what's going on here. It's like he doesn't even grasp the concept that views of people like Duck Dynasty enable extremists. "Gays are sinners, malcontents, child molesters, and should be treated as second class citizens, but calling for their executions is over the line!"

As strange as it is to have Glenn Beck standing against such talk, and as much as doubt that he does actually sincerely accept that gays have rights - OK he does have a really good point here.  Why ARE we talking about some unimportant reality TV star in contrast with what has and is happening in Russia.  Most people in the USA have no idea about any of that(or really about most world events).  Yes he is correct that if our media EVER wanted to be worth a damn again, then they would focus on stuff that actually matters.

And yes it is a very strange day indeed if Glen Beck actually pays more attention to and shines more light upon important events than our real media.  That shows the total failure of US media.

Lately it seems to be justification of civilian casualties from drone strikes because we haven't yet reached Iraq-war levels of 'collateral damage'.

Also, I'm guessing Glenn is realising he can't fulfil his shtick of being the 'crazy, outspoken king of controversy' by going to the right because the teabaggers have taken up residence there, so perhaps he's chancing his arm at going to the left to generate some attention. Either that or perhaps some kind of head-trauma.

I think he's starting to see some writing on the wall. Guy's a total mercenary. If there's money to be made, you bet your ass he'll be the first to pony up a "reformed" political opinion.
 
2014-01-03 05:18:50 PM  
We've officially turned the corner - people see gay people as other people that they work with and that live in their neighborhoods, and care about their welfare.

As for Duck Dynasty - it's an entire show based on the premise of "we're going to find some rednecks". They found rednecks and are SHOCKED, just SHOCKED, that they have some redneck views. Guess what, people - there are still racists out there too. They aren't all universally horrible people, they are mostly normal people but they have some repellant views. Same with the Duck Dynasty thing - these guys are how they are, flawed humans, and some of their views are repellant. If you're watching a show about rednecks, DEAL WITH IT.

To be fair, Beck hasn't been much into the whole EBIL GHEYS thing so many of his colleagues indulge in. I'm not saying he's great on the issue or anything, but his Bircher crap is more about fearing the looming specter of communism than the looming specter of the homoghey agenda.

Most of his views are actually very nuanced. They're just also pretty much bigoted as hell and eerily reminiscent of schizophrenia. This is a really nice change of pace, and I hope he keeps it up.

When did Baryshnikov start looking like Begbie from Trainspotting?

Sorry, pic at the bottom there distracted me.

So "gays should tossed alive into ovens" is too crazy for even Glenn Beck to support? Well, that's nice I guess.

Why does the American media report more on those Duck Dynasty morons and less on Russia's latest moronic anti-gay laws?

Because as a rule American media is about 90% domestic and 10% foreign on a good day.

It's not an either/or thing is what he seems to not grasp. It's not like you can only report on Russia's celebrities saying dumb things or American celebrities saying dumb thing.

American media is reporting on both but too much on one and too little of the other as usual.

What picks my ass here is that Beck is trying to assert that one story is worth reporting on and the other isn't at all and that's not the case.

He was trying to hand wave away criticisms of Kelly and Phil by pointing elsewhere and saying ...See? It's worse over here! Now don't you just feel silly?

Megyn Kelly saying Santa is white and crazy Uncle Phil unloading a derpstorm of anti-gay rhetoric replete with references how happy black folks were under Jim Crow and some B list Russian actor demanding gays be tossed into ovens all have one common denominator.

An underlying theme.

Beck either doesn't get that or he's trying to deflect from that.

That noted, I'm marking today on my calendar as "The Day Glenn Beck stood up with GLAAD" because history.
