When two paranoid white people start talking to each other, the results can get very weird. When a woman called in to Glenn Beck’s show claiming that she was given too much money in the form of a tax break, Beck, the poster boy for ‘tax relief’ tells her to send it back. Why? It’s hard to really decipher what he is getting at, but it is something along the lines of ‘Obama is the President, and if Obama is giving you the money, there must be something wrong with it’ (ie the government will break into your house to get it back). Beck never really comes out and says anything, but he is a master of innuendo and fear mongering through suggestion. Which is precisely why he is so dangerous. Via Bob Cesca:
