Glenn Beck: Ideologue
He sure as Hell sounds like one:
Glenn Beck said on his Monday show that anti-gay people “have no place in this country.” . . .
“Anybody within the sound of my voice that hates a gay person because they’re gay, you have no place calling yourself a fan of mine,” Beck said. “You have no place in this country.”
Beck has spoken out in support of gay marriage several times before. Earlier in January, he voiced his opposition against Russia’s anti-gay laws and announced that he would stand by the LGBT advocacy group GLAAD in their fight against “hetero-fascism.”
“You are not a fan of mine — you have no friendship here — if you hate people because they’re gay,” Beck also added. “You have no place claiming that you’re a fan of this show. . . . If that’s who you are, I don’t want to have anything to do with you.”
Beck is now claiming, as I understand it, that he is a Libertarian. Well, being an Ideological one would cause him to speak such nonsense and drivel. ‘Hetero-Fascism’ is a term used by Ideologues, especially of the Leftist kind.
Clearly, Beck has well and truly gone over to the enemy — the Ideologues, who are the enemies of Truth, Morality, and Human Life.
Tip of the fedora to Stacy McCain who offers his spot-on thoughts here. A highlight:
Of course, the problem with Beck’s rhetoric here is that it conflates political opposition to a certain policy agenda (or religious objections to homosexual behavior) with “hate,” which is an assertion so absurd that I hesitate to dignify it with a response.
Of course, Stacy is not known for hesitating for very long.
