Beck: "Obama has a deep-seated hatred for white people"

I have friends who hold Glenn Beck in high regard, but it's gotten to the point where I can't view him as anything other than a prototypical wingnut. Consider this statement:
This president I think he has exposed himself as a guy over and over and over again who has a deep seated hatred for white people or the white culture, I don't know what it is, but you can't sit in a pew with Jeremiah Wright for 20 years and not hear some of that stuff and not have it wash over.
I won't sully this column by embedding the video, but you can view it at Intershame, which offers this commentary:
The cherry on top of this sundae of ignorance has to be the fact that Obama's mother is white. If we apply the transitive property to simpleton Beck's inane rambling we can deduce the following: Obama has a problem with white people and Obama's mother is white. Therefore Obama has a problem with his mother. Good luck trying to make that case.


  1. Beck's next leap of logic has him saying that health care reform is actually reparations for slavery. How, i am not exactly sure, but don't forget that Beck seriously thought (or said he did, who knows) that Obama was setting up re-education camps for the opposition. Normal people know it's nonsense, but the poorly educated eat it up!

  2. But, Obama did say his grandmother is a "typical white person" :-)
