“Caliphate is like a new ice cream flavour”

Choice words from Glenn Beck’s show today.

I may be a little late to the game with this.

I’m currently watching an entire episode of Glenn Beck for the first time, instead of just picking up on the ridiculous sound bites I normally see. I can’t believe this dreck. There is absolutely no coherence to his broadcast, and I’m not just saying that as someone who is generally ideologically opposed to his viewpoints.

He’s just spewing out uncritical xenophobic generalizing. All I can comprehend from his show is that it’s a vitriolic attack in the name of fear-mongering.

I understand that his show is commentary, not news. And it’s one thing to be biased. Rachel Maddow is biased. Chris Matthews is biased. Keith Olbermann is biased. But they are generally coherent and critical, and they form eloquent and cogent standpoints for their ideological arguments.

I challenge anyone to say the same thing about Beck.

Just needed to get that off my chest.
