Glenn Beck has been talking about something called a caliphate. I talked about this for the entirety of my radio show on Monday. Listen to it HERE. I said some stuff about the Glenn Beck controversy on a blog (not this one). Here’s what I wrote:
Maybe Glenn Beck is doing some kind of Joaquin Phoenix thing were he acts all weird and then reveals that he’s making a documentary that’s really a satire about society. Or something like that. Sometimes Beck makes sense. Other times I think he needs to stop.
I actually think he’s somewhat right about some connections between the far far far far far far far left and radical Islam. But that’s not even a large enough group of people to merit talking about it for two weeks straight.
Until he can prove that George Soros and Osama bin Laden are in fact the same person, he needs to go back to being Sean Hannity with a sense of humor.
After thinking about it, I want to walk back those comments a little bit. After reviewing the evidence, I am convinced that Glenn Beck is not completely crazy and he ought to be talking about caliphates and the very far left’s connections to and sympathy for radical Islam. But he needs to make it clear that he is not implicating all liberals. Only the very far left.
