Glenn Beck Refuses to Define ‘White Culture’

Media • Views: 3,894

One of the statements that has gotten Glenn Beck in trouble was his rant against President Obama on Fox News’ Fox and Friends, in which he said Obama is “a racist” with a “deep-seated hatred for white culture.” In her interview with Beck, Katie Couric read a question from a viewer, asking Beck to explain what he meant by “white culture.”

And the weaseling started.

Maybe Glenn Beck should ask these people for help defining “white culture’.” They seem to know exactly what it is.

UPDATE at 9/24/09 11:50:38 am:

Note that Glenn Beck wrote the foreword for the new edition of W. Cleon Skousen’s “The 5,000 Year Leap,” and heavily promotes the book on his show.

Skousen also wrote a book called “The Making of America.” Some quotes from that book:

Toward the end of Reagan’s second term, Skousen became the center of a minor controversy when state legislators in California approved the official use of another of his books, the 1982 history text “The Making of America.” Besides bursting with factual errors, Skousen’s book characterized African-American children as “pickaninnies” and described American slave owners as the “worst victims” of the slavery system. Quoting the historian Fred Albert Shannon, “The Making of America” explained that “[slave] gangs in transit were usually a cheerful lot, though the presence of a number of the more vicious type sometimes made it necessary for them all to go in chains.”
