Yesterday, it was reported that Beck had responded to Grover Norquist's criticism of Cruz by inviting Frank Gaffney on the show to declare that Norquist had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Today, Beck began his radio program by lashing out, not just at another critic of Cruz, but the entire network behind him.
Beck began by criticizing CNBC's Steve Liesman, who, yesterday, asked for some "Mexican music" to be playing while they talked about Cruz.
Which, to be fair, was a pretty stupid thing to do, and certainly would have been covered by this column had Beck not proceeded to make Liesman's bout of insensitivity seem reserved by comparison.
Instead of taking issue exclusively with Liesman, Beck lashed out at the entire network, both CNBC and its parent company, NBC. According to Beck, this was just the latest example of an NBC network intentionally fomenting racial division in America.
Beck urged his listeners to start sending out tweets of other example using the hasthtag #NBCRaceCrimes.
In typical Glenn Beck fashion, this ultimately came to involve the book The Lucifer Effect, after which Beck declared that the NBC networks "have chosen the path of darkness" promoted by Satan.
All this stemming from an insensitive remark by one man about a man with a favorability rating lower than that of dog poop.
