Apparently Glenn Beck’s infatuation with black history extends to slavery. On the Oct. 1 broadcast of The Glenn Beck Program, Beck stated that slavery “started with seemingly innocent ideas.”
What’s even more ridiculous than the comment is how he got there, rambling from one point to the next. He was attempting to deconstruct President Obama and borrow from the president’s comments on patience. Obama used slavery as an example of having patience at a time when it seems the world has gone mad. Somehow, Beck took that comment and meandered to comments on slavery that don’t even support the point he was trying to make.
