Glenn Beck Accuses Tea Party of Racism
The Chalkboard Man comes to his senses? With all his fancying of himself as some prophet, and the countless End Times talk, I doubt it.
Still, the only difference Mr. Beck can see between Mr. Obama and Mr. Gingrich is the color of their skin.
‘If you have a big-government progressive [in Mr. Gingrich], or a big-government progressive in Obama, ask yourself this, Tea Party: Is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me,’ effused Mr. Beck in a recent interview with Fox News’ Judge Andrew P. Napolitano. ‘If you’re against him [Mr. Obama] but you’re for this guy [Mr. Gingrich], it must be about race. I mean, what else is it? It’s the policies that matter.’
Mr. Beck went further. Not only did he accuse Tea Partyers who support Mr. Gingrich of racism, he also accused them of being dupes who take their marching orders from the Republican establishment. How does Mr. Beck explain the former speaker’s surge in the polls, one that includes support from millions of Tea Partyers? ‘Big-government GOP machinery.’ Not only is that insulting to Tea Partyers, it’s factually incorrect. Establishment Washington insiders have cast their lot with Mitt Romney, not Mr. Gingrich.
