Glenn Beck is an idiot, this we know.
However, I had to laugh when Beck called Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher a neo-nazi.
Here’s the setup.
Beck was one of 33 people named to TheRoot.com list, The Blackest White Folks We Know. It makes little sense to include a rambling conservative talk show host, but here was the explanation.
The emotional right-wing talk show was probably the last person on earth we’d put on this list until he discovered that blacks have been all but removed from the history of America’s founding, and actually gave a black history lesson on his cable TV show. Yet we suspect we’ll have to revoke it after his upcoming rally at the Lincoln Memorial on the “I Have a Dream” speech anniversary.
So, Beck put up photos of the other people on the list and tried to name them. He was able to name a few — Madonna, Anderson Cooper, and Bill Clinton, among others.
When he got to Urlacher’s picture he says, “I think this guy is a neo-nazi.”
Obviously, Beck has no clue who Urlacher is, but now that I think of it, Urlacher does kind of look the part.
I mean, the skinhead look is so 2010.
Thanks to Sports By Brooks for digging this up.
