On his radio program today, Glenn Beck uncorked a bizarre rant about the NAACP and Martin Luther King and Booker T. Washington and by the way, 20 PERCENT OF KKK LYNCHINGS WERE OF WHITE PEOPLE! AND THEY’D BE TEA PARTIERS TODAY!
Beck’s strategy for defending himself against charges of racism seems to be to confuse the issues so thoroughly that nobody can figure out what the hell he’s trying to say. But yeah, he’s still a racist pig.
“They are a joke,” Beck said of the NAACP, calling them “an affront” to everything that Martin Luther King, Frederick Douglass, and Booker T. Washington stood for. “You are an affront to their memory. You really are.”
Somehow, that discussion then prompted Beck to declare that “20% of the lynchings [carried out] by the KKK were of white people … and you know what, I contend [that] the white people that were lynched are exactly the kind of people that would be in the Tea Party today.”
