“Real men never say I’m sorry.”
At least, not if you work for FOX News. You never heard Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity apologize for any of their outrageous statements, did you?
Well, you won’t hear Glenn Beck apologize, either.
On July 28, Beck called President Obama a “racist.” He didn’t just hint at it. He didn’t pussy-foot around. He used the word. He called him a “racist.”
Since then, responding to pressure from an organization called Color of Change, some 36 corporations have stopped advertising on the Glenn Beck Show. Big names, including Sprint, Wal-Mart, CVS, Clorox, and Best Buy.
So what does Beck do? Instead of simply apologizing to Obama, he attacks again: accusing Van Jones, one of the original founders of Color of Change, of being a “communist” and “committed revolutionary.”
Which is totally absurd. Jones left the organization two years ago, has been named one of the 100 most influential Americans by Time magazine, and is now in charge of Green Jobs for the Obama administration.
Glenn Beck: what a miserable, pathetic, poor excuse for a human being.
Instead of trying to ruin the reputation of anybody else, he should just admit he made a mistake and say: “Mr. President, I’m sorry.”
But, of course, it would take a real man to say that.
That’s my parting shot for today.
