The real Glenn Beck

Posted By on Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 6:29 AM

In an interview post-rally, Glenn Beck gets back to his — and many Republicans' — dominant theme. If Barack Obama is not a Muslim or racist, he is at minimum a radical in religious beliefs. "Liberation theology" is the latest tag being pinned on the president. The irony is rich when Beck says this brand of thinking is based on oppressor-and-victim. That's the Tea Party in a nutshell — the government and other radicals are oppressing white middle class Christians. That and demonizing Obama, a pretty successful tactic despite some monumental success and promise fulfillment by the Obama administration. E.J. Dionne concludes Obama better get serious about politicking.
