Sharp words were exchanged this morning when conservative writer Michelle Malkin called into Glenn Beck’s radio show to rebuke him for hosting disgraced former Representative Eric Massa (D-NY) on his show.
Malkin’s point was that Massa had been disgraced over charges of sexual harassment, and that his credibility was moot – any charges he would level on Beck’s show would be tainted by a desperate man seeking to salvage his reputation.
Obviously irritated by the criticism, Beck lashed out at Malkin.
BECK: I don’t understand you people, Michelle.
MALKIN: You people? Who are you, Ross Perot? We’re on the same side.
BECK: Are we, Michelle? Because it seems to me that the right has come out and attacked and attacked and attacked and attacked every single time. I don’t understand it.
What hypocrisy! This from the man who said that he wanted to kill Michael Moore:
I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out of [him] – is this wrong?
Listeners of Beck’s show would not be surprised about this freak-out. After, all he can’t stand criticism of any sort.
Check out this clip:
Beck is already under fire from other conservatives, like Mark Levin, who said in response to Beck’s recent CPAC speech:
I have no idea what philosophy Glenn Beck is promoting. And neither does he. It’s incoherent. One day it’s populist, the next it’s libertarian bordering on anarchy, next it’s conservative but not really, etc. And to what end?
Glenn Beck is slowly but surely alienating everyone around him, even those who are supposedly on ‘his side’. With the gratuitous crying; the lashing out at friendly critics; the pure vitriol heaped on opponents, even those who agree with him don’t seem to respect him.
