Followup: Glenn Beck and Glenn Greenwald Agree on Pretty Much Everything

A mutual admiration society

Following up on yesterday’s article on Glenn Greenwald’s appearance on the Glenn Beck show, The Blaze (Beck’s vanity media organization) has posted several video clips at YouTube.

As we noted yesterday, Greenwald attacked people who criticized him for doing this interview, saying he “disagrees” with Beck and comparing himself to President Obama being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly. But if you watch any of the clips posted by The Blaze, you won’t see any disagreement between them — none at all. In fact, this interview was like a meeting of a mutual admiration society, with Greenwald and Beck laughing and smiling together throughout.

In the clip I posted above, get a load of this exchange in which Greenwald agrees with Beck that Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are “interchangeable.”

Beck: Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are interchangeable.

Greenwald: They have the same funders, the same backers [Beck laughs], I mean Wall Street is just praying for a Jeb Bush/Hillary Clinton… you know it’s like hoping their two favorite teams make the finals.

Beck: And so is the media. So is the media, strangely.

Greenwald: Oh yeah, they love… they’re just both establishment candidates.

This is a picture of two people completely in agreement, right? Well, not according to Greenwald, who is now trying to deny he agreed with Beck’s statement.

This is such a classic Greenwald sleaze move; when he’s called out for saying something gross, he invariably retreats behind legalistic nitpicks and nasty insults. You may not like Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush, but to say there’s no difference at all between them is simply ludicrous — but Greenwald absolutely did agree with Beck on it.

And by the way, did gay pundit Glenn Greenwald have anything to say about Beck’s insane homophobic statements the day before, calling gay activists “Nazis” who were trying to stage “a Christian Holocaust?” Of course not, silly. Not a single word.

Glenn Greenwald’s fans were quick to defend him for appearing with Glenn Beck, by saying he’d bring the debate to Beck. But there isn’t a hint of a debate in the entire interview. They laugh and smile and agree with each other on basically everything; I don’t think I’ve ever seen Greenwald in such a bubbly mood, in fact. Even when Glenn Beck says at one point that America’s “Progressive Era” caused World War II, Glenn Greenwald has no response at all.
