Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:
5. Glenn Beck
American prophet Glenn Beck can see the future, and it looks bleak for the true patriots.
On the Wednesday edition of his show, Beck lashed out at black Americans like Samuel L. Jackson who talk about racism in American society. After all, everyone knows that Tea Partiers have it tougher.
“You want to talk about racism? You want to talk about bigotry?” Beck asked. “Let me ask you: Have you tried being me? Have you tried being a conservative? Have you tried being a Tea Party member? You tried being an actor that has to meet in secret because of their political or religious beliefs?”
“Well, you can’t change the color of your skin,” Beck continued. “I can’t change what I believe! I believe in God the Almighty. I believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. There’s nothing I can do to change that!”
“Don’t tell me about your problems, Samuel L. Jackson,” he concluded. “Shut the hell up.”
