The real reason Glenn Beck got "fired" from Fox (he ain't gone yet, and probably never will go) was because his conspiracy-crazed lunacy caused him to hobnob in public with some notorious anti-Semites. If you're a right-wing conspiracy buff, you'll inevitably make such alliances.
By way of atonement, Beck has made a naked appeal to Jewish paranoia
. On the same day that Obama called for Israel to return to its 1967 borders, Beck claimed on the air that a second Holocaust is coming. He wants to know if you are willing to hide a Jew behind a wall in your house.
Well, it depends. My Jewish stepfather? Forget it. Remember the asshole that Jerry Lewis turns into in The Nutty Professor
? My stepfather was, and presumably still is, like that
. Only worse. Treated my mom like crap, he did. But his
mother was very nice. So she would be welcome, if she were still alive and needed a place to stay, and I wouldn't even make her hide behind a wall. And if maybe she wanted to whip up some potato pancakes, I wouldn't complain.
