Glenn Beck: ‘I Will Stand with GLAAD’ Against Russia’s ‘Hetero-Fascism’

Mediaite – by Andrew Kirell

As Mediaite readers may recall, Glenn Beck recently appeared on CNN for a full hour of talk with S.E. Cupp. Buried within that interview is one especially interesting nugget: Beck said he would gladly stand with GLAAD in the fight against Russia’s “hetero-fascist” laws criminalizing public homosexuality.

Beck told Cupp that he finds it ridiculous that Americans were debating Santa Claus’ race and a comment made by a Duck Dynasty star while, over in Mother Russia, laws have criminalized public homosexuality and a well-known TV celebrity actually called for the burning alive of gay people.  

“Hetero-fascism,” Beck called it. And he said he’d gladly stand with GLAAD in taking a stand against Russia’s anti-gay legislation.

So why is that so interesting?

I’ve long been tough on Beck for suggesting he’s sympathetic to libertarianism while openly supporting the likes of Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann — two of the most un-libertarian GOP candidates in the 2012 cycle. And then he started to make some progress on many issues, including surveillance and the warfare state.

So I’d consider this an even greater step forward. With this one soundbite, Beck has done more to speak out against Russia’s war on homosexuality than any of his conservative radio colleagues, thereby showing clarity of his belief that while his religious views may say one thing about homosexuality, he does not believe any government has any place legislating such morality. Not only that, but he mentioned fighting arm-in-arm with GLAAD, one of the right’s biggest bogeymen.

  1. Beck has said the he is a christian and believes in G-D and the bible. The bible teaches that being a fag is WRONG. So does this make Beck a two faced lier???

  2. So, you agree with the Russian celebrity that burning people alive is OK.
    Where do you think the term “fag” comes from?
    Dark ages witch burning where homosexuals were used a faggots – bundles of sticks used for kindling.
    The Bible says a LOT of things are WRONG, especially in the Old Testament.
    Do you advocate punishing violators of the Ten Commandments?
    Do you even care?
    Christ said NOTHING about homosexuality.
    Get over it.

    1. Rocnror, Rocnror…..tsk..tsk…(Shaking my head)

      Let’s see…

      “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

      Leviticus 20:13

      I guess those 501c3 churches haven’t taught you that verse yet, have they?

      “Do you advocate punishing violators of the Ten Commandments?”

      Umm…yea…wouldn’t you?

      So you are in favor of letting people NOT be punished if they killed a family member of yours? You know, 5th commandment “Thou shalt not kill”.

      So you are in favor of letting people NOT be punished if they stole from you? You know, 7th commandment, “Thou shalt not steal”.

      By all means, just give yourself over to the government now, since they are NOT being punished for doing these things EVERY SINGLE DAY on a mass global level. As a matter of fact, I hear TSA is always hiring. They need as many immoral lawbreakers as they can find to do the tyrant’s bidding.

      “Christ said NOTHING about homosexuality.”

      Bahahahahahahaha!!!! ROLMFAO!!! Someone never read the Bible at all.

      Go back to your 501c3 church, buddy. Meanwhile, I will continue to pray for your lost soul.

        Thanks for the comment.
        “Do you advocate punishing violators of the Ten Commandments?” OK. Bad example. It would have made my point better to have asked what punishment should be given to violators of the other things mentioned in Leviticus.
        You missed some, including these two:

        20:9 For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.

        20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

        You might also read Exodus 20 for the correct numbering of the Commandments.
        And, maybe reread a New Testament with Christ’s words printed in red.

        As long as the Zionists can keep us fighting about thousands of years old words, we aren’t fighting them.
