Glenn Beck Urges Conservatives To Understand Black Lives Matter
Looks like the devil may be enjoying a fresh snow cone in hell right now, because notoriously bigoted GOP talking head Glenn Beck has just says he actually understands where the Black Lives Matter movement is coming from, and why Black folks get upset about silly little things like being shot dead over minor traffic violations…
Via Washington Post:
“You can’t be as universally disliked as I am, and not do some soul-searching,” said Beck at a news conference before his speech in Denver. “Well, unless you’re Donald Trump.”
Among Beck’s revelations was that the Black Lives Matter movement had a point. Beck, like many conservatives, had criticized the movement as racist and exclusionary. He had led a march in Birmingham, Ala., on the theme of “All Lives Matter.” His news site, The Blaze, had written dutifully about well-meaning people who said “All Lives Matter” and were hounded by the politically correct mob.
But since the police shootings in Dallas, where his programs are recorded, Beck had come to view “Black Lives Matter” differently.
“All of us are sitting around a table, and we’re all friends,” he said. “It’s time for dessert, and everybody gets pie except for me and you. And you say, ‘I didn’t get any pie.’ Everybody at the table looks at you and says ‘I know. All pie matters.’ You say, ‘but I don’t have any pie! What about my pie?'”
Beck’s point was that white Americans simply did not understand what black people had been saying about police in America.
The “leaders” of the movement, he said, were “communists and anti-capitalists” whom he could never agree with. “But they’re not the people walking behind them in the street,” he said. “We’re all speaking different languages and we need to talk to each other.”
Is it possible that this man was ACTUALLY able to get such a simple concept through his impossibly thick skull?? We guess at some point even the loudest, rowdiest bigots have to see common sense from time to time…
